Guess Sony doesn't like making money. Yet another console exclusive that could have sold 10X as much by releasing on all platforms.

seems that way... its definitely generic enough to sell like a motherfucker everywhere

id imagine it extends dev time quite a bit tho... also things may not be possible to optimize in the same way

i remember playing god of war 3 and Uncharted 3 (which were exclusive) and just wondering why they looked so incredible and ran so perfectly compared to all the other shit games on PS3... actually pissed me off and sealed the deal on me not wanting to buy any more consoles for a while
Given that all consoles are now x86, it's definitely easier to port to PC or XB1 than ever before. I'm sure all the usual cynical reasons for exclusivity apply here.

Maybe if the game is a big success we'll see the sequel on all platforms. That being said it doesn't sound like we're missing much.

And no one seems to recall Karl Rove deleting 22 million white house e-mails back in the good ol W Bush years.

Double irony, the one they are currently using is still literally that same server.

Triple irony, I read that the Trump campaign email was run on an unsecured 2003 exchange box.

'Scuse me while I go punch the wall.

I'm sure the FBI will be investigating and dropping accusatory memos about it a week before the next election.

Really, can we collectively stop caring so much about the platform? I mean exclusives are divisive enough, can we just focus on MS actually trying to make a PC game? And weather that game will be any good? Do they have any solid studios left that they haven't bankrupted who can pull off a real PC game?
It doesn't matter if the game is decent if the platform ruins the experience. I received Gears Of War 4 with my graphics card and I have never had such a terrible experience - the download constantly stalling, restarting, corrupting, etc. It took me weeks to actually get it installed and running - registry resets, deleting hidden folders, etc. Turns out it was because of telemetry data being sent in the background which NetLimiter blocks, despite no other platform having an issue with it.

I will never buy any game on the Windows Store. At least Uplay and Origin I can tolerate, even if they're far from ideal. If Microsoft was serious about PC gaming it would create a gaming hub that acts as a centralised access for games from all platforms, allowing gamers to manage games from multiple stores. And if it cared about its own digital platform it would take the best aspects of the competition, rather than creating a restrictive DRM hell with an appalling UX.

Halo Wars 2 could have been a decent game but it was ruined by using a console interface, pay-to-win and the Windows Store.

In defense of MS, they're a small company that doesn't have the resources to put into making things run well.

since when has platform exclusivity made any gamer excited?

QFT.

If it's a port, make it proper and give it full PC support.
If it's not a port, then it takes full advantage of the strengths of the PC platform.

He's a millionaire for sure, he was just working there because he enjoyed it and/or because he'd be bored otherwise. Must have changed his mind about one of those.

Maybe he had an American Beauty moment: quit your high stress job, buy a muscle car, and work a low-stress job at a burger or coffee shop.

Set up for what? They never took away anyone's unlimited plan before, lots of people were grandfathered in for years when it wasn't available to new customers. But even if they would do that, it's not like you're stuck in the same contract forever.
They may not have taken them away, but the tried every trick in the book to get people off those old unlimited plans including lying, threatening, and throttling.

If you can't do the time, don't do the crime. This wasn't some kid, he is 24 years old. Unless he has some mental condition which reduces his capacity to act like an adult it would seem a criminal conviction is not out of line.

Yeah I don't have a problem with the punishment the judge handed down. I was more remarking on how having a criminal record continues to punish people *after* they've served their time. It makes it hard for people to reintegrate with society. Maybe it should be expunged after a certain amount of time. Like a couple of years for a crime like this, but never for murder, for example.

Judge convicts, punishes man who threw gator into Wendy's.

The $500 fine and 75 hours of community service are peanuts compared to the actual punishment: a criminal record. That black mark will cost this man hundreds of thousands of dollars over his lifetime.

I wonder if there's an argument against cruel and unusual punishment in there somewhere.
