I mean, the EGS model doesn't really make sense for AAA games, which is why we've only seen it in special cases: Ubi is using the deal to prop their own store up and 2K severely reduced the exclusivity period for Borderlands and RDR2. No point in getting the money for 300K copies in advance when your game is basically guaranteed to top that in no time.

Nice. Almost picked up a PS4 copy today because I was 80% sure Timmy would snag this up. But I can easily wait half a year now.

So its coming to both Steam and EGS?


Good.


Give people a choice and everyone wins.
It's smart move on Sony because they get a cut out of all these sales since not only is it their game, they published it, they funded it, they helped develop, uses their resources and engine. I don't know exactly how much but it's probably a lot based on all that. Now they get double the cut if instead they just made it EGS exclusive. I don't know, part of me thinks all this new forward thinking is all Jim Ryan. When it was under Shawn things were very different.

They only published it on PlayStation. The PC version is published by 505 Games.

I think you misunderstood what I was trying to say. You're right but I meant they "published" it overall. it's their funding. You'll still see "Sony Interactive Entertainment Presents" on the PC\EGS game just like you would see it on PS4 on the intro of the game. 505 Games is being licensed by SIE to publish it on Steam\EGS. You can see it on the bottom of both store pages that just went up, similar to Detroit and Journey.

Cool, but I can't wait that long. I've got free time now, so PS4 it is. Maybe in the future if it's on a deep sale I might pick it up, especially when I upgrade my PC in a year or two to be able to run it at 4K.

KojiPro's official Tweet regarding the PC release.


Edit: I guess this is what they call missing by a hair's breadth.
