Metro Exodus Epic Deal Sparks Backlash

One good outcry deserves another, and recent review scores on Steam for Metro: Last Light Redux and Metro 2033 Redux are suffering at the hands of users unhappy with the announcement that the Metro Exodus will be sold exclusively through the Epic Games Store. In many past cases customers have concealed the agenda behind their review bombing, but PCGamesN notes that in this case many of these new reviews address the Epic deal directly, some including an ASCII giving Epic the bird over this. An interesting aspect of this situation is highlighted by Ars Technica, where they discuss how the lower commission taken by the Epic Games Store may lead to some games being sold there at a lower price. This is the case with Metro Exodus, which can be pre-purchased from Epic for ten dollars less than Steam was charging. Ars notes this still means more profit for the developer and publisher, as their 70% cut of Steam's $59.99 price tag is $41.93, while 88% of Epic's $49.99 SRP is $43.99.

Wait... getting a game cheaper while the developer makes more money is a Bad Thing™ now?

Ok, the exclusivity thing is a tad shitty, but otherwise...
