    Nice. I may play this version on my laptop sometime, given that it has the specs to play it, of course.

    Yey! Now you can enjoy the boyband roadtrip movie simulator in full 8k!

    This game makes me think of that L'arc~en~ciel Driver's High videoclip... certainly.

    A PC port still can't make this a good game /s

    All jokes aside, good to see that Square finally announced it. Earlier this year they were showing off demos of FFXV using Nvidia Hairworks, so it was really only a matter of time. Square Enix has decent track records with PC ports, so having a PC version is welcome.

    PS4 that run on x86 logic are so similar anymore, I would honestly be surprised if that is very far off. maybe 9 or 10 months?

    I can finally play it since I didn't want a sub optimized version on my PS4.
