I'm just wondering if any of you duders are going to buy the PC version of this game. So far I know I'm the only one of my friends thats getting it for pc, so I hope maybe some of you are?

To entice some people, Greenmangaming.com has a 20% off coupon (GMG20-27J4Z-8NXHO) you can use toward any game (wink wink) right now.

I'm probably going to grab it on PC, that's what I played Burnout Paradise on too

If I get it then yes, it will be on PC. The only console release I plan on playing (and not necessarily at launch) is Halo 4.

Probably not..

#5 Posted by Genkkaku (755 posts) -

I was thinking console for the multiplayer, but I kinda want the 60FPS a PC can offer and 20% can't hurt

#6 Posted by Killercombo (258 posts) -

It was 25% last week, regardless I am getting it elsewhere for a little cheaper and yes, on PC.

No, it's not on Steam, and I'm fuckin' done with Origin. I might get it on the Xbox though. Less hassle.

Thanks for selling me on the 360 version.

#9 Posted by AlexW00d (6656 posts) -

If I ever buy then yeah for sure it'll be on PC. I doubt I'll buy it though.

Ok, not getting this game then.

#11 Posted by Cribba (349 posts) -

It's on Origin, so no. I'll go with the PS3 version.

I've been leaning towards PC, but no steam is a killer, especially in a game that will probably be best with lots of friends playing. I hardly have anyone on origin. EA really needs to just move on.

#14 Posted by Wong_Fei_Hung (735 posts) -

Maybe, if it supports multiple screens...

#15 Posted by lordofultima (6557 posts) -

I'm getting PC, origin tag is lordofultima. I can't resist the framerate and resolution. IMO, Paradise was only so excellent because of 60fps. If console versions are 30, the sense of speed isn't the same.

#16 Posted by Vextroid (1449 posts) -

Yeah. Not day 1 but yeah.

Both consoles run it at 60 fps locked in Paradise. Also I'll add you to Origin soon.

#18 Posted by IrrelevantJohn (1141 posts) -

I feel like I should make a new thread with Origin names and availability

#19 Posted by wemibelec90 (2042 posts) -

I probably will but not for a few weeks after release, at least. Kinda broke right now.

#20 Posted by JJOR64 (19514 posts) -

Been thinking about getting the PC or the 360 version. Going to wait till after I finish Assassin's Creed 3 though. If the Wii U version is out close to the Wii U launch I might get that version. Hmm...

#21 Posted by Jazzycola (669 posts) -

I'll probably get it on PC when its like 19 bucks. Not day one for any system though. I bought NFS:Hot Pursuit on 360 last year and only did like 3 races before I stopped playing it.

#22 Posted by Raven10 (2040 posts) -

Does it actually run at 60 fps on PC? I got The Run last year and it was locked at 30 and I'm pretty sure Hot Pursuit was locked at 30 as well. Has EA confirmed you can run this game at 60 fps on PC?

Fuck... You actually made a really good point there about Hot Pursuit being locked at 30fps.

#24 Posted by JusticeJanitor (262 posts) -

If it has split screen local multiplayer i'll get it on PS3. If not, I'm getting it on PC. Will it support split screen multiplayer on consoles? I've done some research and didn't find anything.

Hot Pursuit is 60 on PC. I was playing it between Persona 4 Arena matches last week.

Hot Pursuit was locked to 30 on consoles, not on PC. Link.

The Run was indeed locked to 30 on all platforms (though apparently it can be unlocked on PC through some community patch or whatever).

#27 Posted by IrrelevantJohn (1141 posts) -

@SlasherMan: So it could go either way for now... I hope it's 60

#28 Posted by cl4ssified (3 posts) -

No, I will be getting this for multiplayer so I will be picking up the xbox version - 30fps is disappointing but I will settle for more in game muliplayer matches

#29 Posted by mrcraggle (2047 posts) -

I saw the game at Eurogamer running on PC and it blows the console version away. I played the PS3 version and you can immediately tell the difference between the two.

#30 Posted by Funkydupe (3426 posts) -

Is there are police campaign in there? Loving the look of styled up police cars.

#31 Posted by Xshinobi (453 posts) -

Yeah I pre-ordered the PC version off of Amazon. I can only speak for myself but I have more problems with Steam than I have ever had with Origin.

Not until it's cheaper

Don't buy from GMG. They think the release date is Nov 1st, something I only saw after I'd placed my order. Attempting to get a refund... it's not easy.

EDIT: Ordered from NA, no VPN, etc.

I bought it from GMG and have been playing it for 3.5 hours already (No VPN).

EDIT: With some digging around, I think it's out on Oct. 30th for North America, Nov. 1st for Australia and EU Nov. 2nd.

So how is it i see it is up on amazon digital, does it seem worth buying?

@iceman228433: You might get an answer to that question from the GB quick look soon later today.

I've been watching the Itmejp stream on twitch. Seems like a consoley port, looks pretty but no multimonitor support, etc. It convinced me to buy it but that's only because I rather enjoyed Hot Pursuit and this seems like a proper sequel.

@thabigred: I do like the idea of 60 frames and I don't mind Orgin it's really not that bad.

#43 Posted by IrrelevantJohn (1141 posts) -

@iceman228433: I personally have not tried the multiplayer yet since everyone just started the game so I'm not going to comment on it. As for the single player I think it's kind of dry. I came in expecting some Burnout paradise openess to the game but when you start a race, there are checkpoints you HAVE to go through so you really dont have the choice of picking your own roads. I also hate the police chases too outside of the races, they are pretty pointless in my opinion. So far those are my only complaints since I only clocked in 3.5 hours. Like I said just wait for the quick look, Jeff seems to like the multiplayer according to his tweet.

I'd like to be able to play it at 120 fps since I have a 120hz monitor but it's not that big a deal. My biggest hangup is Origin, but I'm willing to deal with Origin for good games. I'd really like multimonitor support to stream the game but that's not a huge hangup either.

I'm installing it right after I reply here, will report back if I have huge technical issues.

I don't think you can play as the cops though.

Hot Pursuit was locked at 60 not 30, The Run was the one stuck at 30 (Split Second was also guilty of that crime).

I agree with this comment, i enjoyed Hot Pursuit and Paradice a lot and so far this game fails to thrill me on either sides of those spectrums. I feel like the original Most Wanted was superior so far. I didn't really play any multiplayer; tried but it only hooked me up with one other random dude and there wasn't much to that experience.

Hopefully a full multiplayer server will blow me away,because so far i'm pretty disappointed.

#48 Posted by granderojo (1897 posts) -

I can actually confirm the game does have multimonitor support, at least for me. I guess JP was having technical issues. Game looks dope, little bit of tearing but that's to be expected.

#49 Posted by Tapeworm (69 posts) -

Game is a lot more technically demanding than I was expecting. Getting slowdown here and there.

Same. I was pretty surprised; I'm only running at 1680x1050, yet on my GTX 670, the framerate noticeably dips when I'm going fast. I wonder if it's a driver issue, because this really shouldn't be happening.
