Why is Dark Souls most popular on PS3?

Are we the new elite? PS3 Dark Souls has 9000+ topics on the board and is always in the top 10 on GFaqs. Xbox has 4000+ and PC has like 400 or something.

Its because of all of that amazing pre-order DLC that was PS3 exclusive. Everybody bought it for PS3 because of that.

Demon's souls would be my guess.

FWIW, its usually in the Xbox top 10 also.

Because of two reasons: Demon Souls and the fact that Dark Souls is the best game in the world.

Harder to hack. I worry about the PS4 for that very reason. Some devs see the PS3's learning curve as costly and time-consuming, which it is, but it tends to weed out the amateur hackers, so you actually end up selling more games. I would never develop for PCs because of the rampant piracy. The other funny one is the 'used games' issue. Everyone wants a new game. Some can't afford it, or it is no longer made. People who sell their games have more money to buy more new games. Everyone wins, even the devs, but they are too blind to see it. And if I can't sell my game, then I actually don't own it. It is called a lease. "Right to use" and "own" are very different things. I probably own over 300 video games. I have no interest in leasing one.
