Looking for some more opinions.

Some people say it's great - but others that it's terrible and badly optimised.

I've tried it a little bit and while the gameplay seemed good, the performance, even on a GTX 980, was questionable at best.

They say this will get patched - but is there any guarantee of this?

Don't want to drop the sort of money they're asking for only to be disappointed by it, basically.

I thought of grabbing it when it was $20 at Target but decided not too as I have enough games I need to play and I plan to get a few games soon (Dishonored II being the main one)

I'll probably pick it up at some point. 

I've heard that most of the stuttering is CPU related and if you have 6 cores it doesn't happen as much. That's unacceptable obviously but I have a 6 core CPU so it might not affect me.

I'm guessing you can't get it on PC at a discount in stores?

It's a Play Anywhere title so buying it on Xbox gets it on PC and vice versa.

I'd need an Xbox One to active it first though, right?

If I signed into my Microsoft account on another person's Xbox, and installed a discounted / used copy on there, would that unlock it on my PC I wonder?

It's linked to a Microsoft Account (the purchase license) so probably not.

In fact, there was a bug/issue for a bit when it launched where the PC version would work due to a licensing issue that they've since resolved.

Have the patched the frame rate problems on this yet?

Wouldn't mind picking it up if they have.
