<< LINK REMOVED >> I know what you mean by XB1 and the reversal of their policies, and how they were pretty much forced to change all of that.


However, what if the future scenario is that everyone does the same? Cloud gaming/streaming/whatnot will become the norm that all the big ones Sony, MS and even Nintendo use, what are you going to do if you are a console gamer?


It wouldn't be that much of a thing for me, because I can always game on PC, but strictly console gamers might not have a choice then.

<< LINK REMOVED >> I totally agree with on the prices, they are absurd.


For a person like me PS Now seemed at first very good option, seeing as PS4 is the first Sony console I have owned, and PS Now would have given me an opportunity to play PS3 games etc. However, if they are really going with the price structure present, no way I, or any sane person, will pay what they are asking.


I have thought it would be great (optional) addition to Plus as well, and he does indeed mention that they are looking into Sub-based model as well, so let's hope that comes to something, and the pricing is more of the intelligent variety than currently shown.


One last thing though, I have this weird feeling that we might be looking at the future of gaming here, where you don't actually buy (and own) games yourself, but instead just rent them.

Don't get me wrong when I say this guys, since I have played all the previous GTA titles that have been on PC, but I am not excited about GTA V anymore. Nor do I care if it is coming to PC or not.


One of the key reasons is the way how Rockstar treats PC gamers, either completely ignoring them or giving them second class sh***y ports. That is not to say I haven't enjoyed playing the previous ones, but I refuse to support this anymore.


For example, Watch Dogs is coming to PC, Ubisoft could have easily done the same, but they didn't.


Meh, interest has faded to all time low with GTA V on my part, there are so many other great games to play anyway, that one game doesn't matter. So FU Rockstar :D

<< LINK REMOVED >> I fail to see the logic here. How come they can't make ES style game even now? Why does it have to involve releasing the titles to other platforms?

@MAGIC-KINECT @YukoAsho @EcksTheory The whole system is messed up. The push towards digital is somewhat a non-starter, when you acually have to pay, in worst case scenario, near on £20 more for a digital version than the physical.

I tell you, if either Sony or Microsoft would realise this, and use it as an advertisement trick, "come to us, and you can buy all the AAA titles for "dirt cheap" from our digital shop", they would get so many new customers.

Now, that would be a system seller.

<< LINK REMOVED >> It's not entirely Sony's fault mind. They have said the developers can charge pretty much whatever they want, from range of £0.99 to £59.99 or something like that. And, surprisingly enough, most of them charge near on the full amount.

I thought it might be like that, because even though Zavvi for example doesn't have MLL PC version listed anymore, the other versions are still there. I would be curious to know that as well, I hope it doesn't stem from something like console versions getting better treatment than the PC.

Thanks for that, I will check that in the future. I actually found an excellent deal from G2PLAY.NET already. It was actually cheaper than it would had cost me to buy it from Zavvi, and when I activated the code with Steam it even said it would be the limited edition one, so I guess all good. I just wasn't prepared to pay nearly double the amount of what I (well, my wife) was expecting to pay, there was no way I would had let her do that. I still feel the same about this whole thing though, Deep Silver definitely didn't get into my good books with this stunt, and I will be very cautious with their future releases. Can you, or anyone else for that matter, confirm if you can still buy the physical copies of console verions in Europe? Because, if those are available, that means, they just shafted the PC players... And yes, physical copies all the way... Except, when you are actually forced to get the digital...

Yeah, I live in the UK. And this really helps and clarifies things, so thanks a lot for the info, I wasn't quite sure what had happened, because I don't think my wife got any kind of explanation whatsoever to why they didn't send it. Having said that, that is completely ridiculous. I too, would had wanted a physical copy and always prefer to have one. Leaving an area out, such as Europe, is just stupid. Do they honestly think that everyone wants or even can get a digital copy? Had a quick look on Steam, and I can't see any discounts or offers there at the moment, they had a pre-order offer for the DLC, but for obvious reasons that isn't there anymore. What annoys me is that I could have bought the game through Steam, when it had at least a bit money off (and/or DLC free of charge), but I missed out on that, simply because Deep Silver didn't inform anyone, and I was under the impression that I was just waiting for the game to arrive. I might still get the game, but not now, not full-price anyway, like said I can play other games and I don't even want to give them the full amount anwyay, not after this.
