I'll get it on PC , i want it to play at stable 60 fps.

Wait, is it not 60 FPS on console? Will it at least be 60 FPS on a PS4 Pro?

I was planning on going console with this one, but if performance is bad then Steam is fine too (where I played DS3).

Saw someone streaming it last night. The game is going to break a lot of people, especially if you are coming in with a BloodBorne or Dark Souls mindset. Looks great and it also looks very responsive and fun.

Yeah, I think they have side stepped those expectations in the last week or too with enough influencers and what not, I don't think many will be disappointed at least for it not being a souls game. Probably safe to expect a good few people getting pussed off and bombing it. 

Oh, I do not believe people will be pissed its not a souls game as it does carry over some of the mechanics.  Instead, gameplay wise the combat is definitely different.  From a few souls players who were playing this game, they state the combat is harder which for the casual player probably will make them give up on the first boss.  I believe its level of difficulty for the true souls player will present a challenge they expect.

From what Eurogamer states in their performance of the game, you can forget 60FPS on any of the consoles.  Look for something like mid to high 30s to 40.  Also, the game still have the frame pacing issues which was a pain in Bloodborne.

It's 40 to 45 on PS4 pro and 35 to 40 on Xbox One X. PS4 and Xbox One around  30 fps and more stable on PS4 but all of consoles have bad frame pacing. For games like this i am preferring stable frame rates even if it's just 30 fps, but on PS4 pro/X it's open frame rates so it's fluctuate.  I will just go with PC , even my Dark Souls 3 i bought it on Steam.

Tough call for me. I think for this one I may go PS4 Pro; 40~45 FPS is not ideal, but it's not going to ruin the experience like 30 FPS probably would. No idea if FromSoft is planning on releasing DLC for this, but if they do, I'll eventually pick it up again on Steam with the DLC included.

Edit: Stores by me start selling the game at 9 p.m. tonight, so I have a little more than 8 hours before I can play. If I chose Steam, I'd have to wait 22 more hours, so that's another major reason to get it on console for me.

6 hours folks. I broke my two and a half long yead boycott for this game, I hope Activision see it as a success at least.

Damn, 2 and a have years. What about buying it used so that Activision doesn't profit?

You're a lightweight. 11 1/2 for me. AND still going.

Hope you enjoy it though. You filthy scab.

This is in the mail for me. I'm excited to have a 'souls-like' that's vastly different from Dark Souls/Demon's Souls and Bloodborne. Very eager.
