  • KORNdog

    KORNdog there are people out there who are going to wait for PS5 before playing last of us 2. but even that sort of wait sounds far too excruciating to me. (22 minutes ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog @Seth: i mean, it's a viable option, but if you were a big fan of sony exclusives to begin with you'd need to have an insane amount of patience to wait 3 years to play it on PC (25 minutes ago)

  • Seth

    Seth @KORNdog: yeah i don't see this happen anytime soon. it's why i find funny some people suddenly say ''i'm done, after 25 years with ps, moving to pc''. (5 Hours ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog What WOULD shock me is of Sony turns around and announces day 1 releases of exclusives on PC moving forward. That wouldn't make a whole lot of sense to me. (13 Hours ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog Releasing on PC at that point allows them to make more money while not cannibalising sales on their platform. (13 Hours ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog By the time horizon hits PC it'll be 3 years old. It's bargain bin price on PS4 and it's used game circulation means it's effectively a dead title for Sony and their earnings. (13 Hours ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog @Sdarts: I imagine Sony's plan is release old games on PC at full retail to make money on titles that no longer drive sales or make them much money. (13 Hours ago)
