Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition won't be available for a couple of months still, so consider this the appropriate time to look over the game's system requirements courtesy of Steam. They are reasonable, though that's to be expected.
Despite some concerns over the potential quality of this port, I have a feeling plenty of us impatient types will still end up getting it if for no other reason than the bonus content. Using that as an excuse to play Dark Souls again isn't such a bad thing.
