    Does anyone know if there will be console exclusive content? I really hope not. It annoys me when developers do this stuff.

    Given that the game is over a year old at this point, in "final retail" form, I should sodding well hope not.

    That's one of the many things they did get right.

    There should couch co-op functionality for the PC version too since it's already going to be on the console version/

    Should be *what* for the PC version? same-system Co-op?

    That one is surprisingly hard to do correctly on PC, because reasons.
    (reasons which I admit to partial ignorance of, but will gladly speculate upon as "an idiot a bean-counter was involved")

    In all seriousness, it is simply a profound differenece in PC vs console controlling architecture, PC is oriented for single-user of multiple simultaneous controlling devices, at the same time. (keyboard + Mouse being the oldest and longest serving example)
    Consoles though, (the ones that aren't gimped by their own manufacturers) are oriented to multiple-simultaneous-users, and thus control systems needed to differentiate between Player one and player two.
    (coincidentally, many Arcade machines use the second architecture)

    In most PC's I've owned and/or worked on, the "controller" system is a (few) single-port device (the software is often all the same multi-port monster, but since the hardware side is gimped, ...), and most user-input flows in through that one existing port. (Microphone and Line-in are an entirely different system to keyboard & mouse)
    (note that most machines sub-divide this port such that the user sees many ports for USB, but they are all, ultimately, spliced into the single USB port on the inside of the machine)

    I don't think there's gonna be one...

    Maybe just a new cosmetic item, but we can easily get it on pc too thanks to modders
