Lorx seems it's still a bit of a delay compared to the console release but a month later isn't that long. How you feel about it?

I expected April Wakaman, but am kind of bummed out it's so late in the month. If it means the release doesn't need 2-3 mods to function though, it'll be worth the wait. Moreso than anything, I'm just glad the date isn't in limbo anymore, we know when it'll come out and that's just nice to finally know.

The artbook and soundtrack are part of the Steam PC release ($50 via the store), which is sweet. I've heard it's possible to get it for $40 from GMG using this code: OQE4LG-WEQPSE-SMCME1, but have not confirmed it myself as I already pre-ordered from Steam itself within a couple hours of it going live.

What I might do is also get the normal PS3 version, getting the two copies would effectively would cost the same as getting the special statue edition, but would basically be paying for the release date and maybe some co-op fun with other members who don't run PC.

Well 2 was built on PC then scaled down to consoles according to early dev reports, as well as made by the more tech oriented team along with members of the older teams, so hopes are high that it'll run better.

The main issues with Dark Souls was that they ported from PS3 and it was From's first attempt at a port to pc.

I definitely expect a port with effort put in, though I have been wondering how much the game is developed PC-first considering the release date discrepancy. Though six weeks to me sounds like double-checking how well the game works with varying hardware setups, making sure the game isn't unplayable amounts of broken on common setups for it's release.

FromSoftware certainly know how to tempt PC users, as the release date is still a fair distance away I would hazard a guess they need to keep us sweet. I've never been one for PC Gaming, so I shall be prepared to die on the PS3.
