Forums - Sony Discussion - PS4: Red Dead Redemption 2 Will Have Some Sort Of Timed PlayStation Exclusivity

Interesting how these types of articles were not popping up left and right last gen, when MS was starting this trend. Now, all of a sudden that Sony has started doing it, it's horrible and can't be tolerated. Oh, but we'll throw in a quick line about MS, just so we can say we mentioned it.

1. Yes they did, maybe you just weren’t looking for them, or are looking at these articles in a different light.

2. There will obviously be more articles now because we’ve had a longer time to get tired of these stupid deals, and also these deals have sunk to an even lower level with what Sony and Activision did for Destiny.

On topic, they’re already locking single player content behind a $20 “Special Edition”. This added on makes it enough for me to say fuck it and wait for a used copy to show up somewhere, can’t support this 1-2 combo of shit.

1. Links, please.  Something from Kotaku specifically would also be nice.

2.  If they wanted them to stop, they should have nipped in the bud from the start.  Not remain silent or barely speak, and then talk about it, now, when it has already been established as a marketing tactic. And sunk even lower?  MS always had timed exclusivity on DLC for certain games.  How is Sony doing the same thing them sinking even lower?



Depending on what content is being time exlusive I have different reactions to this. If it's DLC, then I really don't care. DLC is an extra purchase, it's not part of the base game. If a part of the base game is exclusive to the PS4 even temporarily then this is awful. People should be able to play what they pay for and not be gated off due to their console of choice.



I unserstand this kind of deal at the beginning of the gen so yeah, it is uneccesary. I am glad I am not the one affected though

It was horrible and shouldn't have been tolerated back then, too.



I wonder if it's just related to specific content or the whole game. Either it's a win for sony. Popular series.

I wonder if it can sell 10M on PS4 alone.

Pretty sure it'll be huge.

Probably with decent marketing and good reviews. Not alot of competition in the wild western sub-genre.

It WILL sell above 10 million on PS4, quite easily infact.



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.
