    I really hope this is coming out for PC sometime soon after the console release, not years later like FF13. I don't want to buy a PS4 and IMO the Xbone isn't even an option.

    It's insulting that MS released a console using 768 old gen stream processors when they knew the competition is using a near identical APU but with 1024 stream processors... and a proper unified GDDR5 memory system as opposed to cheaping out and using DDR3 + eSRAM.

    imo wont happen, seems SE have deal with sony or what
    but most dev. in japan is still depending on Console sales rather than sharing with PC sales... PC is the last to consider, even smartphone might get better priority to them

    the only jp dev. that consider PC maybe konami, but kojima got kicked out of the company... well konami should focus in gym center anyway
    but i am not blaming konami, because from the beginning konami company isnt a company that have huge cash to spend on creating latest tech. engine... even though MGS is really successful, seems the profit not that really sweet

    bandai namco seems okay with PC, but again their games is well... u know nothing special, its fun okay

    The tech already looks dated.

    And SE, the next time you do a promo video, get some proper lighting and makeup on your people. Honestly, they all looked like they were on death's door. :(

    seriously why are there no more direct feeds to videos? there all youtube videos with horrid compression, or do the people uploading the videos think puting it on youtube actual looks like that would on said pc/console cause it dont

    There were some rumours that it might come to PC, but even if it's true that doesn't mean it'll be within a reasonable time frame.
    I expect 30fps at a low resolution with dips below 30 considering it'll be made and optimized for the lowest common denominator, the Xbone. I guess in that scenario it'd hold that 30fps better on the PS4 version even if its resolution and overall image quality is intentionally gimped to match the bone. That's my guess at least, some companies have done 20fps before but I don't remember an SE game ever being 20fps.

    I imagine it'll look pretty poor compared to what they're showing. How much can they pump out on 768 stone age stream processors? Fun fact, the Xbone has awkward resolution limitations due to the use of 32MB eSRAM rather than a proper memory system. So even if they weren't severely limited by a 768 SP GPU, the cheap-ass memory system would take a dump on everything anyway. Remember those extremely awkward resolutions some Xbone games had? Yep, due to the 32MB eSRAM limitations.

    Edit: 32MB, not 10, I was thinking of the 10MB eDRAM on the XB360.

    I'm really wondering how much MS saved by going with DDR3 + eSRAM over GDDR5 and 768 SPs instead of the still measly 1024. Am I crazy for thinking it can't be much?
