Forums - PC Discussion - Metro dev says next game won't be on PC if players boycott. EDIT: Official Statement made

Great way to say "Boycott us please!"

I think you guys are reading into things. Makes sense to me. If a game sells bad on a platform then it makes sense to drop the platform. It could be their fault sure. But thats not what the dev is discusing.

So how much did you spend on console games in the last year(s)?

Hmm let me think. 

....Kirby, Crash, Let's Go P, and Smash (street pass), plus Yooka L....I'd say about 220 or so in 2018 abouts.

Is this seeing if I actually buy games, or is this a point about how the PC players don't spend nearly as much. Insert joke about thievery here. 

Many PC gamers spend a lot more on games annually than $200 - $300



We're witnessing them dig their own grave in real time.

I mean, the game is coming to PC anyway. If the Steam hardcore can't bite the bullet and buy it off another store, then that's their problem. At least they're free services to use, unlike when this happens in the television space.

As I highlighted earlier:

This is the actual context of using a different store you can't even play any game on ES offline for a start.

Its a brand new store .No shit you aint gona get as many fetures. Thats way they charge 20% less. Thouse fetures like for steam will slowly roll out.

 What are they discussing, then?

Maybe you didn't read the full thread we have some people here shouted about PC players being entitled because they're unhappy about the surprise exclusive move two weeks before launch well this chart highlights why a number of people would rather pay that extra $10 to have all those features. Your discount argument is also flimsy because in regions like the UK the is no discount at all and the game retains the same price as Steam so the consumers are offered nothing in those regions what so ever not to mention having no offline mode or refund policy in place which are bare basics.

Like i just said. I dont think the guy is shifting blame or anything. No matter who is to blame wich i do agree is the publisher. If a boycut happens and it underperforms then we might not see this in pc again. Like the other guy said. If its a point you are trying to make then wait for the steam release dont just boycut the game entirely. Its suporting the devs while still getting your point acros.

Edit: where this like the batlefielf V thibg where the EA exec said dont like it then dont buy it thing than yea. You definatly should feel insulted. I see what this guy said as almost begging. Like dont hurt us for what the publisher did.

But what i quoted nor what i said had anything about entitlement. The people who bought on steam still got steam access. While im not sure about refund policies. There was a diferent chart than the one i quoted and that one did say that epic offered refunds. Why on earth would they not? Thats not a software thing.

No offline mode would suck ..specially for a singleplayer game. But again. Thouse features will slowly roll out. Steam also dint have them day one.

Diferent prices in diferent regions is not a new thing. Thats a definetly right reason to be upset.

Again if you dont like the new store and you would love to pay the $10 for the fetures makes sense. I agree 100% with you. But not having then and paying less is also acceptable by the publishers. They are saying this is not as good so we cant charge the same. Buying or not is still up to you. Wait or not wait for steam is still up to you. Its not the devs fault its mostly the publisher.

Look I know that PC players (and XBox players, who are nearly the same thing) think that platforms are defined by what they do. They aren't.

They are defined by what you can get there, and only there in particular.



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?
