After fans rallied for months to get Dark Souls on PC and almost miraculously, succeeded, it turns out the game won't be all most would hope for. Rather, according to From Software producer Hidetaka Miyazaki, it will be a "straight port" of the console version, lacking optimizations (so certain areas willl still bog down your framerate), graphics options, and full on keyboard and mouse support (it'll be there, but with little effort put in -- a game pad is strongly recommended).
The blame, apparently, is down to publisher Namco Bandai, who specifically requested the straight port for some ungodly reason, though Miyazaki admits From Software is inexperienced on PC, so that could be an influence as well.
Dark Souls will come with extra content when it launches on PC in August. A shame, as we're pretty sure most of the audience would much rather From Software had spent its time crafting superior textures, plenty of graphics options, optimized keyboard and mouse controls, and smooth framerates all the way through, leading us to believe Namco plans on bringing the content over to console at some point.
Miyazaki notes he's interested in mods, but due to their inexperience, it's anyone's guess as to whether or not a kit or support of any kind will see the light of day.
