Dark Souls Resolution Hack

NeoGAF has version 0.3 of an "internal rendering resolution fix" for the just-released PC Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition. This mod addresses the PC ports fixed rendering resolution of 1024x720by intercepting the calls to the DirectX 9 API, and this has apparently been a big success for something whipped up so quickly. Thanks games.on.net via VG247.

Am I the only one that wishes they had worked more on polishing the PC port rather then shoehorning some content in? I mean, if I am making the decisions, it would seem to me that you would be doing the game, the franchise, and your company a favor both in sales and in terms of long term reputation to manage your limited resources in a way that puts everything in the best possible light. Personally, I think that would have been to simply port the original game correctly rather then trying to add some limited additional content. People aren't buying this on PC because they expect a different game, they are expecting the same game except on a more capable platform. What good is it to release a half-assed port that doesn't take advantage of the platform? Now you have succeeded in nothing positive. Poor design choice, limited resources or not, imo.

Of course it would have been better for them to polish it up more, but you have to give them credit for porting it to PC at all. The only reason they did so is because of interest from the community, including that petition that got near 100k signatures. They were making the DLC anyway, and probably decided it would make for a nice little bonus at no cost to them...
