$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!".

Because it cost them to port it. Decima is a proprietary engine made by Sony for Playstation. Then on top of that, according to the trailer, the devs added a bunch of PC-only features and enhancements, including unlocked framerates. I didn't think Decima was able to achieve that.

It's funny that the people who don't work in software think that a port is only 0.01% of the entire effort.

I might buy the argument if this was a PS3 port and not a PS4 one. Given the underlying cpu tech used in the PS4 being x86 cpus, its hard to say the effort is worth $50. Its better than $60-80 of the console release. But then I bought the disc version of the base game what, 2.5 years ago in Nov 2017 for $20 If I'd waited a year I would have been paying $30 or so for the complete edition instead. I never bothered with the expansion as I just wasn't in love with the game to warrant it.

If this was say, the Master Chief Halo collection where they are modernizing the games and putting in a working multiplayer mode I'd be more understanding. That game(s) has been $40 or less for 8+ months now.

No. If ports to PC were so simple then RDR2 and other failed ports would not be a thing. Converting from one platform to another is not difficult because of the hardware (e.g. CPUs) it's difficult because you you need to convert the existing framework to a new one. It would actually be easier to reskin an existing game (art & assets) than it would be to port a game from console to PC.

Yup, you have to code for new display options, computer configurations, controller types, etc. You have to create a bunch of new menus to let the player manage all of that (which we saw in the video).

And then there's the testing. With consoles testing involves a couple of SKUs at most. For a PC port the testing is massive: different proc types, versions of Windows, memory amounts and speeds, graphic card versions, driver versions, interfering software like anti-virus, controller types, etc. The permutations are almost limitless.

Look, I get it that you're new to gaming, and this is one of the first games you HAVE to pay 'an extra $20' for... But the trend of PC gaming (more quickly than console IMHO), is that the price will drop fairly rapidly. Do what you should be doing for any game... Buy it at the price point that has value for you.

I'll be picking this up, again, when it gets around $20, as it's one of the very rare games I've gone through everything (minus expansion) twice.

Thanks to you SunnyD and Kxmode for reminding me of Elex.
Totally loved it and going to do another run in a new guild with some cool mods (one is infinite jetpack).
And I'm sold on HZD too !
To answer heroin, Elex also has a mix and choosing of swords, bows, missiles, dinosaurs, magic, tribes, super science, and the hero has a jetpack and whatnot.

Not at all have I convinced myself that I won't like it, though, but I'll wait for the usual reviewers I trust (Worth a Buy, Skill Up, that's about it).

Having played ELEX and HZD (including the expansion), I can tell you that HZD is a far superior product. The controls are smoother. <SNIP Lotsa stuff>

The $50 usd price point stops me from buying this until it's lower as it's just another example of a big company taking advantage of the market. They haven't done anything that justifies charging 150% more for the PC version. All of the assets are the same, which they lay out on the steam page, so all they've done is a standard port of the complete edition.

This should have been in the $30-40 range like most late ports, but they know people will still buy it so they're going to make the extra money. I won't support it, and I wish more people would grasp the economics at work, but I get that isn't likely.

Actually you're getting 20 bucks cheaper then when it was released for PS4. There are enough PC features that if money wasn't an issue I'd double dip for the PC version. This was the game that made me buy a PS4, and again is worth the money if the port isn't screwed up.

Even cheaper than that, since it includes all the DLC.

No reason, really? Ever heard of inflation? They bumped the price to $60 on consoles at about the right time, count yourself lucky you skated by on that discount for as long as you did, 'cause it should have been $70 by then. Hope you're enjoying how the industry evolved to rely on "alternate revenue streams" to make up the difference, though.

Exactly right. They sure as hell didn't do an extra $30 worth of work and it is, as you said, several years old already. Hard pass until it's $20 or lower. Not in that much of a rush for a console game.
