The lights are on
Dark Souls is a great game. So great, in fact, that it received a Game of the Year nomination from the Game Developers Choice awards. That's why players are perplexed as to why Namco never released a PC version of the game.
Here's where things get interesting. A Namco Europe employee recently suggested on the company's forums that a PC version of Dark Souls is entirely possible...if there's demand for it.
"There is always possibilities to have games adapted on PC and the good news is that Dark Souls is not a 100% typical Console game so the adaptation is possible," Namco said. "Now to make things happen, let's say the demand has to be properly done. Someone to make a successful petition?"
Fans have already started an online petition and gathered over 10,000 signatures in less than a day. Impressive! When asked for additional comments, though, Namco told Rock Paper Shotgun that any talk of a PC port of Dark Souls at this point is purely speculative and that there's no further comment on the matter.

YES, YES AND YES.... O_O please make it happen! ლ(ಠ益ಠლ)
Would be sweet. Might finally try it out then.
I would cry if this happened. I only have my laptop with me at school, so I can only play Dark Souls when I go home for holidays. Dark Souls on PC would be AWESOME. Especially since I wouldn't have to deal with as many framerate drops, and switching equipment would be easier. And the mods. *head explodes*
Here's a video TotalBiscuit put up today that goes into depth on the Dark Souls on PC debate. It's a good watch: www.youtube.com/watch
I just have to buy the game again if it came to PC because of the mods that could be made with it.
Yes! I'm dying for some hardcore RPG action. As awesome as Skyrim is, it's a little bit too easy and simple.
this is neat.
Meh, I don't care either way. I'm on the PS3, so I have it anyway. Cool for them, if they get it. However let's remember it's a "possibility". Remember the "possibility" Skyrim might go to the Wii U. =
Well, being someone who recently just bought Dark Souls.. It has to be the best game I've played besides Skyrim but that is because I am a absolute lover of the Elder Scrolls franchise. But Dark Souls is a game I hope is actually ported to PC just so the PC crowd can enjoy this feast of RPG goodness.
My only personal worry would be how the multiplayer would retain its integrity and not succumb to mods/hacks/broken characters. Once they find a way to get around any such issues I think its a dead cert that we'll see a PC release.
That's a very good question.
I hope you PC gamers get Dark Souls because it's amazing!
I hope they come out with another one this year!
