    More Players On PC? Y/N Empty More Players On PC? Y/N

    I've been debating whether or not to buy the PC version on steam when it gets released. Honestly, I have the money to buy it. I don't mind paying for it again if it's worth it. And to me, I think the version with a better, more active PvP player base is worth playing. So I don't wanna buy the PC version if it's just going to come and go in a big wave, and then be dead within a short amount of time. I want to dedicate my time and money on the version that will stay active and fun. So which do you think will be the more active? PC or Console?

    I suspect that the console versions will most likely have more players, purely due to the popularity of consoles over PCs now. I doubt that the PC version will die quickly like you are worried about, but then again, that also depends on what exactly they are fixing and modifying in said port; if they don't fix any of the problems present in the console versions, such as occasional framerate issues and networking problems, it may not build up a particularly large playerbase.

    Just my two cents.

    Smalled and dedicated would be nice. I just don't know if it will end up being lame. Kinda like playin WoW on a low population server. 2 different games completely, but you get the idea.

    Might not be a bad thing since DkS is supposed to have that atmosphere of being "alone" plus on a low pop community youll run into familiar faces more often

    PS3 will definitely be more active. You're forgeting, that for instance in Japan, there are only few PC players. Most of them play PS3. I really hope, that the pc version will get enough players for some active PvP and Co-op and that it won't end like Demon Souls on PS3

    I really hope the game won't crash or not even start or something. I bought 2 copies, one for myself and one for my friend. I also hope that the player base will be small, but dedicated. Players that don't backstab you. Players that use unique equipment and different styles.

    Well PC tends not to have near as many players as console. Also I'm afraid that the PC version will be worst than xbox when it comes to glitching/hacking....Idk why but I have a bad feeling the pc version won't go down well.

    I hope it'll go well, Though, I think Hackers may be the death of it, But at the same time, Consoles usually have a bigger fanbase compared to the PC Port and Vice-versa as it has been out longer and more people have invested their money in the version they wanted, So, It will most likely have a smaller community...BUT...That could mean less hackers/hack support for the PC Version.

    To be honest... I do believe is going to be smaller and the people really playing it will be the ones we already know. I was talking to a friend which is a pc player and actually to get the DkS pre order from steam, but he said that he wanted to get guild wars 2 instead.
    The point is that I don't know how really big the pc community's expectation is... I don't think is much IMO.

    I've already got it pre-ordered and mapped out a fairly safe way for me to rise back to the way I was on PS3. As for the hacker thing, there are always gonna be that group of jerks who spend their days just hacking things because they are bored and like ruining the game. Just gotta exit out when you see one. For the community however, I do know on steam there is an already growing group of people who are looking forward to playing, let's also say, for the heck of it, that they have friend who watch them and become interested so they wanna play as well, I know my brother is considering it since it provides connivance(and one less console on our backs) plus we still have people who Let's Play, Let's Invade, Let's whatever Dark Souls who more then likely will get it on steam so chances are it will have a big, hopefully fair(and honor based) community. Besides being negative only allows your foes to get a backstab off of you while you mope silly

    PC will be more active until winter. Then, depending of how does the game's online performs on PC (don't having a lot of issues like unpatched DkS had in consoles), Fans that bought the game twice will come back to buy the DLC OR it will be still more popular on PC because Fans decided it has a better/more efficient system.
