You do realize the early access isn't new right. Many other games have have done that, such as Battlefield 5, The Crew 2, Gears of War 4, State of Decay 2, Forza Horizon, EA Sports games,
This has been common for years now, infact.
edit: I disagree, Ubisoft now is actually better than it was last gen and earlier this gen, imo.
Bet with Intrinsic:
The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.
