Dark Souls 2 comparison video: Xbox 360 vs. PC at 1080p

Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition was a bad port of a brilliant game. Dark Souls 2, on the other hand, is a well-made PC port (even super-modder Durante thinks so). But just hearing that isn't enough: how much better does it look on PC than on consoles?

To find out, we made this video of side-by-side comparisons between the Xbox 360 version and the PC version running at 1080p, with all settings set to max, on the Large Pixel Collider. Let the footage be the judge—which do you think looks better?

We have a lot more to say about Dark Souls 2 in the week before its release. We've already given you tips on staying alive longer, shown you a few of my stupidest deaths, and asked Peter "Durante" Thoman to talk about its engine. Stay tuned for more on Dark Souls 2, leading up to our review on Friday, April 25.
