The biggest anti-consumer practice in the industry

Exclusivity needs to go away already

Eh, let the PS4 people beta test the game and I'll play it on PC when it releases with better graphics and whatnot (to take advantage of the next generation of consoles)

The Switch can barely run any of the current gen games why would this game which would likely not be able to run properly be the first system it got ported to as opposed to the PC or the Xbox One/Xbox Series X?

Yet the PC version of XV is unfortunately still broken to this day. Hopefully SE will do better this time round.

Obligitary 'boo!' for that timed exclusivity BS. BOO!!!

I'll be the one who waits for the PS5 release to play this.

Anti-consumer but pro-developer. And developers getting proper downtime and pay is pretty big these days.

A bit late to the party ANN? This has been known since December last year. I'm surprised you didn't report back then.

In your head you surely didn't sound like a toxic PC player?

Well good luck with that. SE ports are usually garbage.

They did. Like some other news outlets though, this is being reported because this is the first time we're getting a confirmation on the exclusivity window shifting along with the one month delay. That was perhaps a given anyway of course, but all the same it is news.

My bad. I totally forgot about the delay and didn't take it into account.

Indeed. Timed exclusives tend to come at a price for whoever got the exclusive which is a good thing for us if the developers are putting it to good use. We might have ended up with a lesser game if Sony hadn't paid extra. For all we know this may be why they were able to add turn based battle as an option or a longer story.

I'm inclined to wait until all parts are out on in one nice compilation box set.
