You I've spoken to a mod on the Demon's Souls wiki web site and he says that Dark Souls for all intent and purposes is Demon's Souls 2 with a different name. He said Sony only owns the Demon's Souls name but not the IP. Seems odd. What a miss Sony. THen agin no one really expect this game to be received the way it did. Sony missed the boat on this one. This game could have potential system seller but ohh well. At least xbox only gamers will get to enjoy it too, right? Share the love and the fucking frustration...LOL  OHH NO. I just realized. An update version of Maneater. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO "
He is also wrong.  Sony owns the Demon's Souls IP, Sony is also the publisher of Dark Souls in Japan.  I wonder if a deal was made there???   Meanwhile we got interviews with Namco-Bandai execs saying to your face "I know it looks like a sequel to Demon's Souls but it is not, the games have nothing to do with each other."  It takes more than similar gameplay to be a sequel, or are you saying Doom is a sequel to Wolfenstein? 
 
PS: If you think the art assets are identical you obviously wore blinders during the trailer or just paid no attention during your time with Demon's Souls.

After seeing the trailer, even the animations look like they're ripped straight out of Demon's Souls. I have no idea what's going on here. If Sony owns the IP I don't know how they're just letting From go multiplatform with this game. That's like Insomniac taking the weapons, style, art assests, models and more of Resistance or another of their Sony exclusive IPs and putting out a 360 game with just a different name.

Sony have nothing to do with Dark Souls. From Software are publishing it in Japan.

The art assets are not identical, dude. And "strong similarity" is not enough for a lawsuit, or as I said, everyone would be suing everyone and nothing would ever come out. Take for example all the Call of Duty clones we've been seeing. Most of them have far more in common with Call of Duty, both in terms of aesthetics and mechanics, than Dark Souls has in common with Demon's Souls, but you don't see Activision going on lawsuit sprees because of that (and for them to have a legal right to do so would just be ridiculous).

I just fell in love a few days ago.
I regret waiting so long, but at the same time, now I have much less time to endure waiting  for a sequel :)
