Quite a few people have sent me this link to a forum post in which a Namco employee suggests that has to be demand for a PC version of acclaimed console RPG Dark Souls, if it is to show up on the one true format. It seems to me that Namco decided there wasnt demand, of course, because the game has so far only turned up on the TV boxes. That strikes me as a little strange, especially when you consider that historically-speaking PC gamers are VERY interested in making armoured men hit fantasy enemies with swords and sharp sticks. Underpin that with unforgiving RPG mechanics and that DOES sound like our kind of game. But I suppose there are only thirty million or so Steam accounts, and hundreds of millions of better-than-360-spec PCs worldwide What possible market could there be for such a game on the age old Windows machine? Eh?
UPDATE: Namco have said that this is nothing more than a rumor stemming from the link (obviously) and offer no comment on whether they are likely to produce a PC version of the game.
Update 2: Heres a petition to sign for Dark Souls PC, if you like signing petitions. Over 9000 signatures so far. Lets hope it makes the right executives pay attention.
