IGN(.com) has a preview up for the PC version of KOTOR. It's strictly for people that have just heard the game exists, though. The only new info was that the PC version should have better and smoother graphics. (Naturally requiring a better video card than I have or can afford :rolleyes: )

There is also a video preview, for IGN members. I'm not one so I can't say what's in it.

Gamespot also has one here (http://www.gamespot.com/pc/rpg/starwarsknightsoftor/preview_6072381.html) here the main bits:
Though there were no significant differences between what we saw on the PC and what's already available on the Xbox, we did get to learn a few new details about the PC release of what many think is a landmark RPG.

For now, the official line on Knights of the Old Republic for the PC is that it will effectively be the Xbox version, enhanced with all of the PC-specific accoutrements you'd expect; scalable graphics settings, multiple video resolutions, and a keyboard-and-mouse-style control scheme will of course be available. As for actual new or changed content and features that will be included in the game, Torres told us that the team is currently mulling over a list of possibilities but isn't ready to announce anything publicly at this time. As for the size of the game, it sounds like KOTOR will occupy a whopping four CDs--this surely owes to the enormous amount of spoken dialogue in the game. When asked about the feasibility of a DVD version of KOTOR on the PC, Torres said that the current installed base of DVD-ROMs is being examined but that the game would probably only see a release on CD.
I'm surprised at the 4 discs, I thought it would be more with full VO, hopefully they wonn't crunch the VO down too much.
