The inevitable PC release

#1 Edited by JasonLeeson (200 posts) -

Question. Considering the fact that:

  1. The Deep Down demo can run on a 'NVIDIA Geforce GTX 570, 8 GB of RAM, and an Intel Core i7 CPU'
  2. Capcom's last big game, Resident Evil 6, took 5 months to come to PC.
  3. Next-gen PC ports are easier than ever.
  4. Capcom really love money.

How long long until we're pre-loading this badboy on steam?

I wouldn't think that far a head they still haven't 100% confirmed it is coming out in the west (It probably will)

@jimmyfenix: My good sir, in regards to your western release concern - I refer you to point 4.

problem here is that Sony is co developing it. Yes it can come to the PC but not for a while is my guess.

Yup it might make its way to PC one day but i do not think it will come to the X1

Remember how well Dragons Dogma turned out on PC?

This is sort of like that game.. only that Sony also has a hand in development.

@jimmyfenix: Judging by the level of success Dark Souls had, it's pretty safe to say it's coming to the west...

Western release is no question since it first was announced at an american event.

Uh, what? It's a PS4 exclusive.

His argument is that it's a timed exclusive that will eventually make its way to platforms other than the PS4, but with Sony also behind the game, I don't see that happening.

Capcom love money? Not really considering they don't bring Monster Hunter to PC.

Assuming a Japanese console game comes to PC is not good practice, especially when it's Sony doing the exclusivity vs Microsoft.

When was it said that the game can run on an nVidia GPU and Intel CPU?

@edsone: Where? In Japan maybe with a dumb MMO.

Considering how they didn't release a PC version of Dragon's Dogma even after Capcom America's VP Christian Svensson begged Capcom Japan to do it ... I'm not as enthusiasthic.

Guys, this is a new generation. The consoles are x86. Steam happened. You can't keep assuming things are going to be exactly the same this time round.

What's the true extent of their involvement? If we're talking a Bayonetta 2 situation with 100% funding coming from Nintendo, maybe you're right. But I doubt a big publisher like Capcom would relinquish the rights to release on PC if they feel they can make a decent profit. It's just business.
