    Most Populated Platform?

    Post by angerpowered on Sun Apr 22, 2012 6:07 am

    Hey guys. New to dark souls/demon souls and the forum!

    Anyway, I don't actually own DrkS yet, and have been using a friend's copy on the 360 :\ shame indeed. So I figure its about time to actually pick a copy up. Normally you pick the platform that the rest of your friends play on, right? Unfortunately, none of my friends will play with me so...I guess I have to make some!

    Which platform is(will be, in the PC's case) the most populated? Do you guys think the PC version will be played enough that the population will be greater than the consoles? And does the PS3 have more active users than the 360? Right now I'm leaning towards the PS3 for technical differences (experiencing the game how it was supposed to be) but the biggest factor is player population.

    Thanks guys!

    I believe the PS3 has more users at least it seems so here, but both consoles are rather populated with players and finding friends to play with shouldn't be a problem. I can't speak for how populated pc will be however.

    Welcome to the forums dude. happy

    I guess that if you look here, PS3 has more players that is signed up, but I do think it isn't THAT high diffrence for real, I think it's more abot that most X360 players haven't found the site like the PS3 Players have.

    Me myself however is on the X360.

    Welcome to our nice community! big grin

    I think it doesn't really matter if your on PS3 or 360 when it's about the population. Only thing to mention maybe, there can be hackers on 360 of course, but it doesn't seem like a big problem. I've see xboxers complain every now and then, or in other words, post stories about about a hacker they met, but no one ever said it would be a common problem. At least that's how I understood it. I'm on PS3. happy (you can just laugh at those patethic hackers anyway)

    If you look at sales figures from december, there was roughly three times as many PS3 users as Xbox due to Demon's souls and it being sony only in Japan.

    I'd say if you have PS3 already, get that version happy

    Also with the PC version.. I'm not sure how many sales it's gonna get, I'm sure there will be plenty, but the console users will still far outnumber them i reckon.

    trust me, when I've played my friend's version on xbox compared to PS3, the coop levels are pretty sparce, and PvP outside the 'usual' areas is also far more difficult too :|

    I would say the most populated platform would be the Ewoks' tree villages. There are tons of those guys up there

    Welcome and I do believe Demon's souls led to more ps3 fanfare and sales than xbox like Serious said

    I'm pretty sure it is the PS3, since DeS was on the PS3, they already had a large fan base there.

    And, welcome over here angered!

    Basically no matter which one you get you're going to see online action. If you can I'd recommend the ps3, I never go a day without co op and invasions. But my friend has xbox and its almost as busy.

    If I understand correctly you get placed in lobbies with s max number of potential persons regardless. So less people on xbox wouldn't matter much because there'd be less lobbies, not persons in your lobby so to speak

    Well I havent experienced the 360 but I can testify that the Ps3 game is packed with users all over the place. I never have a shortage of ghosts, invaders, or Co op signs.
