PS3 version is by far the definitive version. Definitely stick with that if possible.

I'll still be getting the PC version. Even if it is a straight port, if nothing else one can make it look a bit better by forcing via the graphic's control panel.

Just so long as it has built-in controller support (X-Input). Naturally a halfway decent at least mouse+KB control system too.

Somebody dig into the PC version files and find out just what the FLUB the pendant was for, PLEASE... I'm pretty sure it serves no purpose at all and that the game director was just trolling players when he recommended it as the starting gift item, since his other best choice was to start with 'no gift', essentially the pendant is exactly the same thing as nothing. >=\

From what I've gathered, PS3 was the lead platform. Consequently, controls are optimized for it (I'm sure it works well on 360, too, but will probably be rough on PC due to the unique scheme and complete lack of optimization they admitted to), and textures are of high quality. I believe the PC version uses Xbox textures, which look horrible, as you may have noticed from PC screens. I would love to play this on PC but I think I'm just going to play it on PS3 when I eventually pick one up. I really don't see the point in playing it on PC unless you're really strapped for cash and can't pick up a PS3.

chautemoc,

They'd have to be REALLY lazy to not use the higher (still kinda low) res textures from the PS3 version even if they're using the backbone from xbux version for their stupid GFWL.
...But, based on what I've read they're being pretty lazy about this. I'd much rather they spent the resources they're using on extra content on making a passable port instead.

Also, if the framerate in Blighttown is even a measly 5-10 frames more in the PC version it might be worth it D:

Crafter That's what I mean, they basically said straight out they're putting no real effort into it and it's the weakest port possible: http://www.neoseeker.com/news/18863-dark-souls-pc-will-be-straight-port/ Check the screens here...the textures are much worse than the PS3 version's.
