News Comments > CD Projekt RED Down on Exclusives

"GOG.com exclusivity for Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales has them thinking this type of deal doesn't work for them"

Pretty sad day when a developer can't release a product on their own established non-hated storefront because people will only buy from Steam.

Remind me why Steam is the only place people shop again? Oh right, it was all predicated on the exclusivity of Half-Life 2. Even if you bought a physical copy in a brick-and-mortar store, you had to install and launch through steam to play the game.

We can't have a world where a new burger shop could become "The home of the Whopper" like Burger King, because everyone has already decided they only buy food from McDonalds. The best they can hope to do is sell the Whopper through McDonalds, cook it, market it, wrap it, deal with customer issues, pay the farmers, pay the transport, pay for everything, then McDonalds provides that touch-screen computer for you to pay and takes a fat 30%.


Um... ya know STEAM launched with The Black Box/The Orange Box, with EA doing the physical brick and mortar distribution that still requried Steam.
And the reason people ONLY buy on Steam is because we don't want multiple platforms to launch off of on the PC. Epic Game Store, Uplay, EA Origins, Steam, GoG, Microsoft Store, and probably 1 or 2 others that I'm missing. If I have an option of buying even say a UPLAY game, I will see if it's on Steam first for several reasons.
1) It's where 90% of the rest of my games are.
2)Steam sales have ALWAYS been first and better then direct from the dev's (Uplay is horri-bad about this)
3) Better Store front, UI, Friends List, able to play multiple and see what other people playing front and center. Something that Uplay and Origins is getting better about but still has some issues.
4)Workshops, discussions and reviews.
5) VR support (for me at least).

But as it was said in Field of Dreams "If you make it they will come". Doesn't matter what platform it is, but if you make an awesome enough game regardless of exclusivity people will buy it. And the PS4 is a perfect example of this, even though I can't stand the UI, or friend system, they have destroyed the Xbox.

And at the end of the day... Valve actually fucking listens to the customers in what they do and don't want and takes action.

Look who's been going at the exclusives. Generally smaller indie devs who need that Epic Money to keep developing the exclusive game. Bandai, and CDPR already have a solid base and don't need/require the exclusivity money.

Epic Games Store is so convenient, I love having all my games in one place.

No EGS, No Sale.

If you mean all the games I already purchased elsewhere with horrible menu UI, lack of basic features and in general a cluster fuck to even other platforms like Origin or EA, then I agree with you.

Game Informer only existed because people got subscriptions sold to them at GameStop when buying something else. Now that GameStop is getting put out of business by digital, its taking Game Informer down with it.

Game Informer is Gamestop's magazine. And it was more or less a giant pre-order print catalog, with MAYBE 2 paragraphs to reviews per game.

So as someone who played maybe an hour of the first game (but also owns the second) should I hop to and get these games done?

Surprised CAM is returning. She said her body took such a beating doing the first three films that she'd never return. They must have promised her no fight scenes.

And that was just from putting on all the leather, rubber and vinyl.

If they would turn the combat into Jedi Knight series I'd be all over this.

Electronic Arts will get right on that.

I don't want to even talk about that EA Jedi game... looked horrible.

Got in to the technical beta last month and let me tell you it needs a mountain of work done in order to hit the October release date. Not even little issues either but we're talking core problems with sounds, physics, animations and bugs bug BUGS. The character animations looked worse than the first Syphon Filter.

General performance was abysmal too especially when you consider the textures in it at the time weren't even complete. Looked and played like a game from many, many years ago but with the hardware requirements which exceed those from Wildlands.

Unless they purposefully released a really old build to intentionally sand bag themselves, invest in Quaker Oats Company because they'll all be eating many boxes of Captain Crunch.

You DO know what "TECHNICAL BETA" means right? Sounds, Physics and animations are all dressing and typically completed between Beta and Gold. I just want to put all my Alpha and Beta CD's in a sack and beat you with it.

Would be better if the background was toned down so they don't drown out the lyrics. Has too much of a "made for club" feel to it.

When people ask me for help I just help them out, I can't imagine being rude to them for no reason. And people usually pay it forward - I get a lot of beer for my trouble, we get invited out by other couples a fair bit and a friend of my brothers helped me redo the kitchen last summer which saved me a pile of money. The price? Fixing his wife's Macbook and saving her pictures.
What Vemo said. I fix their computer/internet/phone, they fix my car or come over and kill spiders.

Word on the street is that the VR implementation is hot garbage - to no one's surprise. Even people with 2080ti's are struggling to get decent frame rates.

because it's more bottlenecked on the headset not the video card. And if you're using first gen Vive/Rift you're gonna see some hits.

EGS + consolitis = hard pass.

Not consolitis, but for example Elite: Dangerous is amazing with a xbox controller, and the control scheme seems to simular in RGO.
