    Man I really hope the rumor of it only being able to run at 720p and 30fps is hugely falsified. That would be a huge kick in the teeth and plus it would look blurry as hell.

    I think that news outlets are reading too much into the news. It will be on Steam, but it's still likely it will just use GFWL unless it uses some horrible hybrid system like Batman Arkham City.

    Most notable this

    So I guess the rumor of locked 30fps and 720p resolution is looking a reality. That is going to kinda sorta maybe fucking suck. I will see what others say when the game releases and if it is horrible then I might just get the PS3 version.

    Meh, you're quoting a wiki, which cited a source for the information. That source says simply:
    Which, you know, doesn't discuss locked framerates or the completely and utterly preposterous assertion of locked at 720p. You won't get higher res textures, but your resolution isn't going to be capped.

    Meow and then some

    I might have misinterpreted the resolution as it only applies to the assets. 1080p resolution or above will be present but it won't make a world of difference. The 30fps lock however seems to be very real unless I hear otherwise.

    Of course it will make a difference. Higher display resolutions, even with the same art assets look better. Would it be even better had they redone texture resolutions? Sure, but it should still look good. I'm also willing to bet that the framerate lock is the same as DS and easily bypassed by unchecking vsync in-game and enabling it with gfx card controls.

    Honestly, none of this stuff is as annoying to me as GFWL. That's where all of my hopes and dreams lie.

    Dark Souls is most likely going to use GFWL from what I've read. Oh well, guess I'll be the only one getting it. Enjoy those other games then folks.

    I'm just waiting on that DLC. Have only a few things left to do in the game as it stands already.

    Yep saw that the other day. Gonna wait for a sale on this one, especially with all the rumors going on. Definitely going to wait for word of mouth on this one before I bite.

    So is anyone aside from me going to actually buy this on release? Just want to know who I might be invading.

    Doubt most people will. At $40 with GFWL it is going to bomb pretty bad IMO.
