And another ones bites the dust. We are pretty sure that a number of PC gamers was waiting for the Director’s Cut edition of Deadly Premonition to hit their platform. Well, it appears that if you were one of them, you’ll have to deal with a locked resolution and the absence of graphics options. Yeap, Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut is now available on the PC (in some regions) and feels like a pure console port.
The good news here is that the game’s framerate is unlocked, therefore you will be able to at least enjoy it with 60fps and above.
Now obviously a lot will ask the simple question: Is it better to get a PC version of a title, even if it’s just a mere console port and nothing more, or not? Well, the answer – in our opinion – is somewhere in the middle.
Take for example the latest Naruto title. Namco was well aware that PC gamers hate 30fps locked titles, yet did nothing to pressure developers into unlocking the framerate. Yes, the PC market is huge, however this does not mean that developers should stop putting some effort into their ports.
Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut is currently priced at 24.99€. If you are interested in the PC version, know that there might not be a patch to offer graphics settings or to unlock the internal resolution. Sure we can all hope for a modder to come and save the day, but there is nothing certain at this point!
