The somewhat recently released Dark Souls was confirmed to be getting a PC version to the joy of many fans. However, it appears that to the dismay of many fans, it will only be coming to Microsoft's Games for Windows Live service, and not Valve's popular Steam platform.
The game was recently announced for the PC after a rather large fan petition was signed, but in an ironic twist, a new petition has risen requesting the game get its PC release, minus the support for Games for Windows Live.
The new petition describes Games for Windows Live as "unpopular, difficult to use, inconvenient, has terrible online support (a key feature in Dark Souls), and is downright unpleasant." The petition goes on to suggest the Steam platform because "DRM is much easier to use, less intrusive, more reliable, and more accepted among PC gamers."
The recent Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition for the PC will keep all the content of the original game, although it'll be adding new bosses as well. The game will be coming in August to the PC.
