Devil May Cry 4 Headed to PCs This Summer

devil-may-cry-4.jpg

When Devil May Cry 4 was announced to be coming to both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 (and eventually PC), loyal DMC fans created a petition, whining to Capcom. Apparently Capcom’s “decision to turn [their] back on [their] most faithful gaming company,” was “absolutely demoralizing for not only the gamers, but also Sony itself.” They also proclaimed that they would boycott any and all Capcom games. After selling two million copies, the plan doesn’t seem to have worked.

Despite all of that (which I have no trouble painting as quite possibly the dumbest fanboy act I’ve ever seen), Capcom has brazenly gone forward with their plan to further demoralize gamers and Sony by announcing that DMC4 will be hitting PCs this summer.

In an act that I wish more PC developers would do, Capcom will be releasing a demo ahead of time so that gamers can try out the game and see how well it runs with an included benchmark mode. There will also be additional content and improved graphics, including DX10 support.

Among the new modes are Turbo mode and Legendary Dark Knight mode, which will speed up the action and add more enemies, respectively. Other changes such as different enemy layouts should help mix things up for those who may have already played through the game on consoles.

The game will carry the Games for Windows branding. Click here to read my impressions of the PlayStation 3 version of the game, or here to get the Zero Punctuation take..

Honestly, I havn’t come across a good console to PC port from Capcom yet. It always feels like half assed attempts, where it still feels like you need to get a game controler to get the most out of it. I’ve always felt that there is no better control apparatus then a keyboard and mouse, but Capcom hasn’t learned that yet.

Well, for PCs that is. Sure, it’s just my opinion, but all PC gamers I have talked to agree with me on this one.
