Opinion PCGamer: "Just admit that your console exclusives are coming to PC already."

Excuses to hide the fact it sold poorly and show how insignificant the PC market is.

The average gamer doesn't have PC on par with a PS4 pro or X1X so don't make a sound like PC standards are higher and less forgiving.

Piracy doesn't help either.

The PS4 version sold 10 million despite it being worse than the PC according to you.
Check my post i responded to you, from the other thread. Average PC gamer has on par or better than x1x or ps4pro.

A shit port is still a shit port. Look at the steam reviews for reference.

If Sony values exclusives so much why did horizon come in PC? And also all those partnership games like DS and QD games?

why bother with allowing PC gamers to play 100s of games on PS Now?

also, if Horizon sold so bad on PC then it shows there’s nothing to fear from your apocalyptic scenario of PS gamers hopping the fence to $1000+ PCs making the Sony ecosystem barren.

look at you being a brand manager at head office. You’d think as gamers on a forum you’d care more about gamers holistically enjoying games on whatever device they have instead of ego boosting from video game walled gardens a bunch of marketing managers discuss in boardrooms.

Nobody cares about your show off walled garden of 100,000,000 video game console members except people like you who get a high from being part of an “exclusive club” which is so exclusive there’s over 100,000,000 members.
1. Because they want to show a quick profit instead of growing the fanbase how there usually would
2. They are morons for doing so bringing horizon to PC, michaeljordanfuckthemkids.gif
3. Me wanting sony to produce high quality content, focusing on the people who buy their hardware is no different than cheering for my favourite sports team acting to lock down key talent for our team and screwing over other teams to do so

We got a shitter port than PC.

Sold 10 million.
Meh, again, shitty port, extremely overpriced for an old and mediocre game, PC gamers don't bend over like console ones.

Let's see what happens when a game like God of War or Bloodborne launches on the same day and same price as the PS version, and we will see if the game doesn't sell.

This narrative that a PS game won't sell on PC just because of HZD is laughable.

I still don't know how anyone can look at a screen that says Demon's Souls is coming to PC _and other consoles_ and think that somehow guarantees a PC port.

I mean, it's possible, but this was clearly a mistake bigger than just announcing it early.

How can you accidently write pc as a mistake? Why even put pc in the sentence?

Theres as many who wants to see the game on pc as players who will literally hate the game if it comes to pc it's fucking insane.

According to anyone. The shitty HZD PC port is better than the PS4 Pro version.

I mean, theres no Deep Rock Galactic on the ps4 and DOS2 is terrible to play on a controller, so pc already wins for me.

There are 20 commas in there and you somehow managed to use the wrong spacing for every single one. Not sure if I should be shocked or impressed.

Smart move by Sony. While you're playing HZD we're playing HZD 2. While you're playing Bloodborne we're playing Bloodborne 2. Some of you will crack and buy a PS5 because it doesn't even cost half of your GPU.

Then GoW 2 appears...etc etc...I mean who the fuck wants to play the waiting game in this scenario...someone who never cared in the first place.

And as for double dipping Spelunky 2...it's not exactly a bank breaking full price game is it lol?

My eyes certainly got triggered.

Also, maybe you should read that article again. The author isn't asking for all Playstation exclusives to get ported to PC. He just wants developers and publishers to be clear about their plans. If no PC release is planned, then just come out and say it. If you do plan to release on PC eventually, then be honest about it and let people know. If you don't know yet, then just tell people you don't know. It's not that hard.

You gotta pay for premium, that's how it's always been.

Not for much longer. The PC has been brute forcing it's ass for too long. It took console architecture to usher in SSD arch, the next 2 gens will see the 2 things that the PC holds over console become indifferent....frames and fidelity will become neglible. PC will be at 8k and 4million fps and no one will be able to tell the difference except for the price. The only thing that will separate these systems are the games and the cost.

I mean seriously, when are we actually going to see that power hungry game Minecraft running in 4k60fpts with RTX. Where is it? I've been on the PC treadmill for a decade and it's a seriously inefficient machine. All those flops, never being fully utilised. Nvidia laughing their asses off as we all chase their next series of cards because they have a monopoly. 10% increase in performance from 3080 to 3090 but more than double the price...HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH...yeah that's PC land: Piracy, hackfests, hacking, cheating blighting the online landscape..gotta love the open platform. A single fucking update bringing down an entire machine. Play a game a month later and find out it doesn't run properly anymore despite you not having changed a single thing. PC is awesome but don't forget it's the most inefficient pos ever.

Ok, not exactly tank in sales. But not enough to warrant another attempt for a game that only few specs can play.

Crysis 2 and 3 melted machines when they came out. I upgraded to play 2, and 3 is demanding even today.

Crysis 1 did so well crytek when on a buying spree of other studios. The fuck are you people even talking about anymore?

Yes.

Some people here are saying it flopped because its a shitty port.

I have simply said it was sold 10 million on a console with a shittier port than PC.

Then the excuse was that PC standards are higher.

In reality, the average PC gamer has doesn't have a rig any better than a PS4 pro or X1X.

That's because in sports, a team hoarding all the good players means other teams sink, and you're team should have a better shot at winning the championship. It's a zero sum game where's there's one winner. One team wins, one team loses, (or it's sport that actually has ties).

In gaming, why you feel like shit knowing a PC or tablet gamer plays Spiderman or Horizon in another country has zero bearing on your enjoyment because it's not a competition in wins or making the playoffs. Or at least shouldn't be a factor.

But for people like you, you treat gaming like there is only one winner, where in reality there could be multiple winners which sports doesn't allow with one trophy.

i didnt say i feel like shit I just personally think its stupid in the first place and devalues the console and the exclusive content provided by said company. Only reason MS games are on pc is because they struggling, and their franchises have been on a downward spiral

Sony should double down on their pc efforts after today's news. Microsoft is everywhere: mobile, PC, Xbox, switch, even on playstation.

If they keep sticking to the age old jap strategy of walled gardens and exclusivities they will end like nintendo. The problem is, nintendo crushes Sony in japan.

They must expand. Use their dormant multiplayer IPs and bring them to PC

That's exactly what I think Sony will do and probably has foreseen for quite awhile. I saw the writing on the wall when PC was getting Detroit. There is no way that Sony can compete with MS when MS has support for PC on all their titles. That user base is too large for Sony to not tap into for revenue.
