So you count PS3 games as exclusives...

Probably because Sony didn't think porting a 7-year-old game to PC would hurt the PS4, especially when Annapurna is funding the port and Sony gets a taste of the revenue stream.

You mean an old ps3 game. Remember PC is the beggars master race, they get all the breadcrums and get excited with very ancient ports. I mean, they're still waiting for RDR1, LOL.

Errr even back then, I always thought it was already on PC when the PS4 version arrived. In any case, I already played Journey back on PS3 and I'm not interest replaying it on PC. At least this is good news for any PC gamers who never played this amazing game from last-gen.

In Star Trek this actually means number 2.

Already played it. Not interested in getting it to PC. But more people experiencing this game, the better. Doesn't matter if the game's old or not.

1. RDR1 is on PC via PSNOW. RDR2 is on the way, thank you for beta testing the shite version like most games are shite on Consoles.

2. Not beggars. Sony and MS give this stuffy anyway.

3. PC is first place this gen with the most high scoring games with over 100+ gap (legendary) win.

Funny how when an old game is ported to PC its being called port begging but when old games are released on current gen consoles with "Remastered" slapped on the box cover the peasants jump for joy.

@zaryia: In one comment you say PC is number 1 and in another comment you say thanks for beta testing the biggest game of 2018 and one you're begging for. You guys aren't known as the last race for no reason.

Does Zaryia stand for I haven't a clue? i'm starting to understand the use of your user pic now lol.

I don't say it. MC and GS say it.

Indeed, thanks for beta testing RDR2. The good version will be fantastic.

PC is first place here for Gen 8.

Fanboys these days don't even remember Sony used to have games exclusively on PC, like Planetside 2 which was 3 years PC exclusive.

The majority of SOE's titles were PC exclusive and even as Day Break games, the current game they are working on, Planetside Arena (got to get those Battle Royal bucks), has only been announced for PC (Windows)

I was mocking the people who said exact same thing to me. I was using my most snobby voice possible

People said something similar for counting Skate 3 as my favorite Xbox One exclusive.

But was more thinking about some one here who said Xbox had no exclusives, so I made a list of 50 games coming to Xbox and not PS4, and most freaked out cause it was at height of that meme, and specifically remember posts of people saying "so you count Steam games as exclusives" in most snobby attitude possible.

They already tried for the BR bucks, and had it for a little while, since they make H1Z1

Because Sony doesn't own the IP.

Probably because its sales on the Playstation platforms have dried up and the PC is a new source of revenue?
