They also seem to have changed the logo for the game on Steam to resemble the retail European cover
What's surprising here is that it's 13 GB as opposed to its smaller size on PSN/XBL.

So it will be $5 in 3 months. The original console game dropped fast, and I'm sure a PC port of a dated console exclusive will, too.
You'd be surprised. Deadly Premonition hasn't dropped much (the lowest it's been is around $6 and that was in a bundle), Capcom's PC games don't get heavily discounted that often, Metal Gear Rising hasn't had a significant drop yet. So far, japanese ports to the PC tend to drop at a slower rate than other games from what i've noticed.

That said, ill probably wait till it's $5 too hah.

How much is this release?

Edit: I see it was already answered. I probably get it on day one. Espeically now that I have a capable machine.

Metal Gear Rising pc could be had for $12 before release. Peeps just need to check Nuveem and isthereanydeal.

I think the price drops are rare due to things like summer sale spring sale and winter sale.

64 bit only? Damn, I'm still sporting Win 7 32 bit :(
Looks like games are going to start forcing x64 compatibility. Better work on finding an extra stick of RAM!

DayZ recently announced that it will no longer support x86, but that it will only effect around 4% of people playing the game.

Will be buying this. I've never played it on consoles.
If you like Grasshopper, you'll probably like this one. The narrative reminds me a lot of Cowboy Bebop, the gameplay is the best they've made, may not be very deep, but it's fun as hell.

It was one of my favorite 2013 games, and this version should fix the framerate, tearing and loading times that were pretty bad on consoles.

Didn't realize Deep Silver were publishing, that's a weird thing.

So it will be $5 in 3 months. The original console game dropped fast, and I'm sure a PC port of a dated console exclusive will, too.
Now imagine how pumped you'd be if it were $60 going $20 within 3 months.

Is the DX11 stuff BS?

The game started out on PS3/360 which were Directx 9 equivalents. I don't get what they hope to achieve beyond that unless it uses DX11 for performance boosts (i.e anti-aliasing).

Will be picking this up just to see how my ancient laptop handles it.

Guys, the real indicator for the specs required is the min reqs. The recommended ones are basically overstated to cover their asses.

This is a DX9/10 era game ported from the last gen, and if previous indications go with other games that use the engine (e.g. Yaiba, DmC, and others.) it should run really, really well.
