The Facebook method still isn't working. I'll log in, sort of. But nothing happens and repeated attempts to log in fail.

I just went along and signed it the other way.

It's kind of funny really. Who plays RPGs again? Oh there is that demographic... you know... the ones with PCs? Seriously, the Witcher II is doing well enough and that game isn't as nearly as stellar as DS is. Is Bandai really this dense? If they put it upon steam, it'd sell like hotcakes. There's really nothing else on the market like it. Well, unless you like playing hardcore roguelikes. But those don't have CO-OP/Multiplayer.

If Piracy is the issue... just make the multiplayer require server authentication? I mean, it runs on the PS3 and the Xbox and I'm sure there's a dev/alpha build that runs on a PC, so it couldn't be that difficult to port. The amount of money they could make off it... it's really a stupid business decision to ignore the audience that actually plays Hardcore RPGs. And if you sell it via DDL, you reap most of the profits, which you don't when you sell to consoles via boxes and physical media.

The even funnier thing about your post is that The Witcher 2 in PAL territories was published by NamcoBandai.

The Witcher 2 point has been brought up alot on the thread in bamco's forums. it's a vaild point but it doesn't show the cult following that demons souls had. Dark souls will have even a bigger one.

They didn't expect Demons souls to sell more than 75,000k copies. I sold millions over it's life time Darks souls is already well over the millions mark, on steam it will do more. I will buy it again

obiwaynekenobi - I dunno if it will outsell the PS3 counterpart, but I would expect them to release it on Steam (preferably have steamworks actually so I can get physical goodies with a retail copy, but that's me)...It would sell very fast, and there would be a lot of copies sold methinks.

It should at least do respectably on the PC, even if it doesn't outsell the PS3 counterpart.

I would hope that regardless, they port it properly.
