    Nope hahaha. My computer is too loaded down with music software and I like playing on the console much more than I like playing on my pc.

    Unable to vote yet. My decision will be made when an announcement is made if the new content is coming to the consoles as a DLC/Patch. If it is, then I won't be switching, but if it's not then I will be switching happy

    Demon's was designed for consoles and Dark Souls was designed for consoles. I also have no wish to be trolled by thousands of modders with riduculous weapons, getting trolled by jerks using the games normal mechanics is enough for me.

    My computer could never handle it first of all, second, I see no reason why I should pay another $50-60 and then just go and use my wired controller, because let's face it, DkS would be pretty hard with a keyboard. I could see why someone would want to play a PC port if they don't have a console, but as long as consoles get the new bosses, then I have no reason to switch.

    I have to agree with the keyboard thing. At first you think - wasd for movement, muse for loking, left and right click for right and left hands, e for item, q for examine. Then you thikn wait how do I switch left and right hand? how do i switch through magic? You only have 1 mouse wheel. I would be really hard to go from console controller to keyboard.

    Currently my gaming rig is broken, but if it wasn't I still wouldn't.

    I already own it, modders, hackers, Elitists, glitches.

    I finally got a better card for my computer, set everything to high and loved it for 2 days then it stopped working. I havent played a game since. No one should have to go through the pain of setting all settings from low-high and back to low. :'(

    I know your pain man. I used to be able to play games on a computer that could run Crysis, Warcraft, TF2, and League of Legends all at once...

    Take a guess how my computer broke!

    Voted yes, but it all depends on how active the community gets and how the gameplay/controls get implemented.

    The main reason for the switch is that I am a computer nerd so my workcomputer runs 40 laps around the PS3 performance, will love gaming dark souls on a triple head setup.

    Also I have always been a computer gamer so the control setup for the PS3 games dont speak to me, any 1st person shooter on a console is a joke control wise. In Dark Souls I hope things like running unlocked for instance will get a lot easier and thus maybe reducing BS problems.

    I have even contemplated modding my PS3 controller so I can gett he thumb buttons on the side for easier control/access (might still do that tho).

    Not moving because my PS3 has better performance than my current computer. Also, I don't think FromSoft is going to lock down the character save file so we might see the Xbox hacked characters on PC.

    There will be more hacks on pc in general. Its easier to mod saves and characters on a pc than it is on a console to my understanding. If anyone knows differently speak up, but I remember going into my oblivion files on my computer and changing stuff around, modding my armors and weapons and I could never do that when I had the game on ps3.

    In general its easier to hack stuff on the PC so mos likely there will be mods about, but I don't see any big difference to the save game hackers on Xbox for instance.

    Also it all depends on how From implements it, ideally any PC game these days should require an online account and store the save games there or atleast verify the CRC of locally stored files. Diablo III is going that route and its the only way forward... That said since the consoles don't use online services (all multi player sessions are peer to peer) I doubt From will add this layer of protection.

    That said a PC will always be hackable (as is a console actually) but it all comes down to the level of effort to achieve the hack...
