Because, you know, the last gen version isn't just about four months old

I'm playing this wonderful, wonderful game on my PS3 and man, would I give anything to have all those textures reach a level that would allow for fuller immersion, rather than the realistic look it's going for, yet can't achieve due to simplistic textures, geometry, and just last gen-iness in most areas. Spice that all up similar to the way GTA V is doing? Cool beans.

Still beans though, because I just got the first of the four main souls needed and the amount of progress achieved, especially today, would feel much less significant if a next gen, better playing and looking version were announced so soon. Sigh, the life of an entitled first world gamer.

So what's your thoughts System Wars? Happy to see a RPG that could definitely use better graphics and textures potentially have them? Feeling slighted that your progress may be halted on older consoles? Don't see From Software, a company not particularly known for its hardware achievements, doing this?

So another remaster on "next" gen systems?

I was a split short and curly away from buying it off PSN since it's on sale for $39.99. Glad you posted this, will wait.

I'd bite on a Souls compilation for $60, but DS2 standalone?

Thanks but no thanks.

I am, this is From we're talking about. Considering how hard of a time they have with PC porting and even getting games to run smoothly on PS3/360, I'm surprised they out of all companies went for this (if so).

I predict that 40% of next gen titles are basically remaster of last gen...

Why not just buy the PC version, it's so well-optimized that I think a laptop could run it at 60 FPS

EDIT: Also, I'm sure this isn't real, because of this interview during E3.

Might give it a go if they do enough improvements and include the DLC.

I don't know why they would bother, the game sold well enough on last gen and they already have a current-gen project they are working on. Seems like it wouldn't be worth the effort to me.

What i was saying before the game even came out. this milking train is here and here to stay. Staying on pc because dark souls 2 without sweetfx/gedosato looks like a washedout pos even maxed out

Truly epic game. I'm not that far off completing it. Got around to playing it fully recently and I'm onto Drangleic Castle. Not sure I'd pay extra for next gen though. A compilation, maybe. An upgrade, maybe. Not a standalone game for full price. One of the best games of last gen but things are not going to get any better.

Consolites will gladly pay.

At this pace, better just wait for PS5 and play all PS4 exclusives at 4K.

It will probably just be the pc versions max settings so it's an easy cash grab.

So basically , Dark Souls 2 last gen version now with E3 lighting = Remastered next gen version .

That's cool, should have made the PC version just that, a next-gen version. Still playing the first DS on PC, having lots of fun with it although yesterday I lost some 30,000 souls after beating Gaping Dragon. Ooooohhh what I could have done with those souls, damn it.... :(

How about new games for the XBOX ONE and PS4 instead? Seriously they are almost 1 year old and yet they are mostly getting games that are already on the XBOX 360 and PS3.

Eh! have some self control & not buy it when you already have/played the previous version. Don't see any issues with it..vote with your wallet. :P

Thanks but no thanks.

If they included the 'kill all enemies in an area 10 times and they disappear' feature from DS2 and actually fixed the multiplayer so I could summon people (aimed at the terrible GFWL PC version), I would totes buy again.

So does this mean we actually get to play the game that was initially advertised?

It will either be the PC version or the E3 version that has the good lighting.

I'm gonna need a lot more than that, especially with FS stating they have no interest in bringing this over to X1/PS4.

Well new games take time and money, porting a bunch of games across takes both but nowhere near as much.

Probably. The stupidest part is that PC could have easily handled the lighting and particle effects from teh demo, but was gutted aswell.

Guess not buying was a a smart move. Not that'll probably have time to play anyway, sadly. This and GTA 5 next gen version where my predictions, and it seems i'll be right. All that's left is the Uncharted HD collection.

How are they making someone pay? Don't have to buy it if you don't want.

Doubt it will happen, but it will be nice if we can port saves from ps3 to ps4

@Chutebox: Yes. A few new areas, cross saves and a graphic surge and I'd buy it. But that's pie in the sky stuff, not likely to happen IMHO.

I waited on GTA5 and this game to go Next-gen. I knew they would do it.

Still don't agree with the practice for the people that already bought the game. Should be some sort of a trade up program.

as far as souls games go it was poor, going up against bloodborne just seems counter productive.

The PS4 and Xbone are swiftly becoming last-gen up-rezing machines.

I still regret buying the PS3 version for full price. I wish I would have waited for the PC version.

Include all 3 DLC, better textures, lighting and effects running at 1080p @ 60fps for $50 like TLOU and I am down.

I never bought Dark Souls 2 for last gen cause my PS3 died the month TLOU was released so I will gladly buy DS2 and Bloodborne on PS4 if it is true.

If this happen i may even buy it and im 1000000000% against milking HD remakes we've been spammed on. Perfectly happy with my pc version but god damn do i miss juicy hate mail. Sucks you can't send messages on steam unless he's in your group/FL.
