It's been rumored that FROM Software will release some major Dark Souls 2 news this week, it being Friday, that would be at the lastest sometime later today? I'm expecting to see in-game footage, and likely an announcement that it's going to be a next gen exclusive, with all the perks that go in-hand with such a thing.
Dark Souls being a rather niche hit, I think FROM Software will aim to get the greatest possible market penetration by making it an exclusive next gen launch window title, forgoing the current generation of hardware altogether. Kinda like what Bethesda Softworks pulled-off with Oblivion, establishing their type of game to a much broader audience than it reached before, by getting to the party early.
Anyways - prepare to be *newsed*.
