$20 on PS4 but $50$ on PC. For a 3+ year old game.

Then go play it on a PS4. Your entitlement to assume that all the time and expense it took the developers to port it over to PC to then sell it on Steam for $20 minus Valve's 30% is foolish. I own it on PS4 but as far as I see it, this is a new game for PC gamers.

Its the same assets. Same story. 99.99% of the game is already done! Why do we have to pay an extra $20 for a old game? PC users getting screwed over just like when PC games jumped to $60 for no damned reason other than "well we milked the console users for an extra $10 why not the PC users too!".

Just for clarification, they still haven't released or even named all the DLC that the Gold edition will eventually include, right? Or is everything out already?

Game was only getting 2 DLC if I recall.

Who's stupid idea was it to charge full or near full price for a game that's been available on PC for over a year? Do they seriously think people are going to be okay with this? After a year of release on a platform (PC is the platform), it should be selling for 19.99.

Why? Why not fleece the Steam elitists while they can? I know I would!

That's the cool thing about EGS exclusivity for the devs and publishers: Double dipping galore.

They have a ton of guaranteed sales both from Steam elitists as well as drive-by sales from the 90 million active users/month.
Win-win-win situation for them to go EGS exclusive. Money up front, money from selling on the EGS for a year, even more monies from the Steam/GOG (etc.) release (and also from being able to put it on more key stores).
Because everyone who uses/would rather use Steam is an elitist.

So you can now pay full price instead of 25% off that Green Man had it last week, and you STILL have to install and create an account for the Rockstar store and loader? The only reason to wait for steam was to avoid that, so it's really a bit pointless. Or am I wrong and it only loads in the background without needing an account?
I love when people rant about this. Did you REALLY think the Steam version would not have the Rockstar Social Club?

If you did I have a bridge to sell you...

By using DX12, PC players with high-end GPUs may experience a higher and steadier frame rate. This is because DX12 delivers better CPU performance and allows for the distribution of rendering jobs across multiple cores.

Even these days I usually have to SHUT OFF DX12 because it crashes like a mofo or runs WORSE.

ROFLMAO @ people buying JFO on Steam

The game can be rented for €/$14.99 on Origin and even if you wanted to "own" it (more like permanent rent) then it'd be cheaper to rent it for a month now and just buy it on sale later... or to buy an Origin key from a reputable key site. This is a game that will get discounted very quickly once the Episode IX hype has died down. It will be €/$ 29.99 in March at the latest.

I guess people buying it on Steam just enjoy flushing monies down the shitter. Oh well. To each their own...
Could just shut the fuck up and let people do as they please when it affects you in no way.

Cheating is the biggest problem with PC gaming. Why isn't there a "gaming mode" required by competitive online games that locks your PC (Windows 10 would be fine for this) into a mode that allows only an API-approved list of programs running in the background, basically core Windows programs, plus the game, plus Discord and literately nothing else. How is it possible we've gone this long without some mode like this?

Permabanning these idiots simply isn't enough. They've ruined all competitive games, CSGO, PUBG, Battlefield, Fortnite, Apex, etc. and it's the only real argument for consoles.

Sounds like you would be right at home working IT in places like China.

Wasn't the main [stated, at least] reason they pulled out back in the day the inability to sell DLC directly, rather than going via Steam and give Valve a cut? Did something change in that regard lately?

Sort of. Steam changed their rules so that any DLC for a game sold on steam must also be able to be bought on steam. They did not care if you could get it elsewhere as well just as long as a user could get it on steam too. Crysis 3 I think was the first to run afoul of the rule change.

Makes sense. So you don't have to go to different places to get your game then get the DLC. Like you had to with Mass Effect 2. DAO at least downloaded them in game.

WTF is a super fast SSD?

Are they saying its "super fast" because its a normal SSD on a SATA III bus?

Do they mean its NVMe? (Though I really doubt this because of cost.)

Maybe just use cheaper hybrid drives and put SATA III busses in the damned things. Remember the plain PS4 only has a SATA II bus. Anyone who put a full blown SSD in that is a toolbag. PS4 Pro however had a STAT III bus.

It doesn't matter how much Epic is paying it matters if they - devs - would have sold more without the exclusive. Meh, whatevs, 10 mil for a game to sit around for a year while they polish it and sell the 'finished' version everywhere else for cheaper later on? I'm fine with that as Epic seems to be fine with wasting its money.

There is that but there is also the fact byt the time it hits Steam (at least I) how many will actually give a shit about the game? I already care little about Metro anymore.

Also I would not be surprised if these dumb asses try and sell it on steam for $60 because it is "new". They did this shit with console games when they came to PC (even years) after they were on console.

Be careful what you wish for here, laws like this have a way of turning out bad. For example this could rush in Game Streaming, since the alternative is this law that probably breaks business plans. Laws with good intentions have this happen to them. I don't feel the deal we have currently has been a bad one.

This. It is happening already in a different field.
Fast food register biscuits are demanding $15/hour for pushing buttons. What do the fast food places do? Get rid of their jobs with touch screen boards where the customer can push the buttons. Larger up front cost but long term probably a ton cheaper.

Or like supermarkets and home depos with self checkout. One person 'running' 4-6 lanes.

We already have 'games as services' taking off and its destroying gaming. This will just accelerate it.

So to fix Borderlands 3 you need to get rid of Epic Game Store?
Does EGS actually let you kill it while playing? Wish I could do that with every launcher; Ubi's I think lets you close it but keeps some process running, Origin and Blizzard I remember would kill the game, and Steam might be game dependent based on using Steamworks DRM, but since most do I haven't bothered testing, and nor have I tried for Bethesda's.

GoG's the only (other?) one that just lets me play my damned game...
Battlenet can close after the game launches. Has been able to for years. In fact there is a option for bnet to close when the game launches in the options.

Something I wish more clients had.

Also what issues with BL3? Been watching tons on streamers and none of them have had issues.

While I'm not about to go around the internet rating BL3 0/10, I feel like they should incur some kind of backlash for being EGS exclusive. I skimmed a few of the "professional" reviews and none of them even mentioned EGS. They should definitely mention it at the very least.
When have you EVER seen a 'commercial' reviewer ever take into account anything before the title screen and after the credits.

Some barely take bugs and missing settings (can't disable motion blur, cant shut of vsync, cant shut off mouse acceleration) into account when it comes to their ratings.
