Namco Bandai convinced it can sell
Rumors that Dark Souls would make its way to the PC have been wishful thinking. Despite many PC users contacting Namco Bandai and telling them that they would buy a PC version, it seems that Namco is still not convinced that it would sell well enough to warrant it. Well, things have apparently changed.
Namco Bandai is planning to release Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition to the PC community in August 2012. It would seem that finally Namco Bandai is convinced that a PC release warrants a conversion from the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 version of the game.
Sources tell us that all of the details are still fluid; but it looks like it will be a digital-only download release at least initially, with perhaps a boxed retail version to come later on, depending on the success of the digital download release. Sources say that it is undecided what might be included in the PC release, but we suspect that news of the PC release will be enough for most PC players looking to get their hands on a PC version of Dark Souls.
