Those who still haven’t played last year’s most popular RPG Dark Souls on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 have now got a chance to pick up the game at massive discounts. Online retailer giant Amazon has slashed the price of the game on both the consoles.
Following the release of PC port of Dark Souls, Amazon is now selling the game with a 40% discount on PlayStation 3 and 38% discount on Xbox 360. If you haven’t still played the game, this is a great chance to grab and see what the game is all about.
Dark Souls is developed by From Software and it is the sequel to the popular Demon Souls RPG. This action RPG was released in October 4 2011 exclusively on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Nearly a year after the developers has created a port of the game for the PC gamers.
The PC port of Dark Souls, now known as Dark Souls: Prepare to die edition was just released a few days ago. The developer originally did not have any plans of releasing the game on the PC, but an online petition from PC gamers convinced the developers that the demand of the game was high on PC too.
Following the petition, From Software announced that a port of the PC will be made available in the third quarter of 2012. The port that is now available on the PC is met with mixed reviews. Critics have given it an average score of 60% due to the technical issues that came with the port.
The Dark Souls PC port suffers from many issues like camera sync, controls and visuals. The game is only able to support a native resolution of 1280x720p which is quite low for some gamers. But thankfully, one modder from NeoGaF forums was able to fix the resolution problem with a mod.
If you do not like the technical issues of the PC port, perhaps its better to grab a discounted version of the game from Amazon.
