As the game was originally a Kinect-heavy Xbox One title, you’re probably expecting that – at the bare minimum – the Kinect stuff has been removed. Then you’re remembering what Deadly Premonition‘s PC port was like, and suddenly you change “expecting” to “hoping”. Don’t worry! It’s as you hope.

I’ve got a pretty lengthy document detailing the specifics, but the short version is this: all controls using the Kinect gesture movements have been replaced, instead using mouse inputs. The user interface has been reworked, the game’s “evaluation mechanics” have been altered to accommodate the mouse, and the mic input is gone.

We can expect bug fixes, faster loading times, and 60FPS. “MELD compatibility” and “leaderboard compatibility” are gone, but we’ll have Steam achievements, trading cards, emoticons, badges, profile backgrounds, and cloud saving by way of consolation; not only that, but all DLC from the Xbox One version has been integrated into the game and – if I understand correctly – can be acquired during normal gameplay.

It doesn’t look like it’ll be the most amazing PC port in terms of options, but we’ve got a few tweakables. Screen resolution, windowed/fullscreen, Vsync, and dynamic shadowing are all things we can play with.

Finally, here are the minimum and recommended specs:

Minimum system specs

  • Windows 7 64-bit or Windows 8 64-bit
  • Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 @ 2.83GHz or AMD CPU or equivalent
  • 6GB RAM
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470 or AMD Radeon HD 6870 (VRAM 1GB)
  • DirectX 11
  • Hard disk with 10GB of free space

Recommended system specs

  • Windows 7 64-bit or Windows 8 64-bit
  • Intel Core i7 4770k @ 3.5GHz or AMD CPU or equivalent
  • 8GB RAM
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 or AMD Radeon HD 7850 (VRAM 2GB)
  • DirectX 11
  • Hard disk with 20GB of free space

Not the most intensive specs in the world, but I am curious about how it can take up either 10GB or 20GB of free space.
