I always thought Octopath Traveler was expensive for $60. After all it's just a 2D alphamap game. I only bought it, in the hopes that SE would create more exclusive throwback RPGs for Switch. I feel betrayed. Either launch the damned game day and date on Steam, or don't bother lying to us telling us that it's "exclusive". Had they done what Valkyria Chronicles 4 did, I'd be fine. I love Sega for releasing that game on everything. It's up front, and honest. Meanwhile Square says exclusive when they don't really mean it, and neglects to print enough physical copies to satisfy the market.

Please just make Octopath Traveler 2, and release it day and date for everything at $50. That's all I ask.

They havent revealed price point on the PC version or are you just talking about the original version being released for $60?

Either ways, nowadays its best to wait for a game to go on sale - cause it'll go down in price sooner than later compared to the past.

I'm talking about the original version being $60, when it should have launched at $40. Waiting for Octopath to go on sale on Switch would have been a bad idea for several reasons. Square didn't print enough physical copies, so the game would have become hard to find after a while. Switch has limited storage, so physical was a must buy. Nintendo games tend not to ever go on sale, even if they aren't published by Nintendo. 

But yeah, if I feel like a game is overpriced I wait for it to go on sale usually. I should have done that with Octopath. I'm really just angry that Square wasn't up front about it coming to Steam, because had I known that, I would have waited until early 2020 and got it for $30 on Steam. 



I was always hoping it'd come to PS4, and still do, which may sound odd considering I own a Switch so could just buy it for that... but I'm more than happy to buy it on Steam too, mainly because I spend more time on my PC than Switch, so there's a higher chance I'll get around to playing it, lol.

It was $42 for the digital version on Switch back in January 4th 2019 according to PSPrices.

I've never had issues finding Switch games for sale, especially first party titles (its digital where they dont go on sale often).

Also cant you buy SD cards for cheap during summer and holiday times?

Not sure how to copy quote and add to my previous post to this (since I didnt multiquote).

But ya, between PS4 and Switch - I would rather get this game on the PS4 too.

Though I read on ERA that Nintendo helped funding for the publishing rights to the game so not sure if its possible that a PS4 port will be possible but....if it does, I wouldnt mind double dipping on PS4 and PC versions lol.

I was planning to get it on Switch but gonna drop that from my wishlist.

At least now, people have the choice of on the go and a steep price, or cheaper price and not on the go.

Liked the visuals of the game, but never did did it's TB style combat.



                                       

I'm happy that more people will get to experience this, a really great game. Hopefully this drums up more interest in its prequel and sequel.

Must admit I am not, though at least it is just Steam. Still better than being on the PS4 and Xbox1, the latter is particularly a stupid idea. 



The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?
