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.
