I guess this is one of the reasons people prefer PC

22 replies 779 views Edited Feb 21, 2014

I like consoles a lot, but I wish we would get more deals. PS+ and Xbox gold is about all consoles have going for them, and even then it's not the same.

 

As far as this example goes, I wonder why they didn't discount this game across all platforms considering the wide-spread problems.

Yea, I got an email from EA/Origins earlier today about this, or something very similar anyway, I say similar because they had some PS3 stuff in my email, it wasn't just PC.

The deals that Steam has are ridicously cheap. Also, why are the games on PSN as expensive, and sometimes MORE expensive, than their physical counterparts? Without the packaging and manufacturing, they should be much cheaper.

 

Companies should do what MGS: GZ is doing with it's pricing.

If they did that, most of my games would probably be digital copies. I like having physical copies but $10 cheaper is a pretty good deal in my opinion.

 

I got into The Witcher series because during Christmas 2012, Steam had super deals and they offered ~75% off the The Witcher and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings so I decided to buy them. One of the best deals I've used.

I would never go PC. The lack of having friends will kill me.

I dont have friends on either PSN or PC, and I ahve both

PC defiently has the cheaper sales, but whats the point if you can just download the game for free in 10 minutes and pirate it?

 

they'd rather make it cheap as hell rather than 100% of people pirating.

But with pirating you can't play online unless you do some private server mumbo jumbo

Steam does take over the digital market compared to the other consoles. There is a reason why people would freak out if physical games were removed from systems and that is because of the cost of not just any game but an old game still costs at full retail. If CD's were excluded, PC would be the only one standing.

But still I like console better for many reasons...
One being that it makes it that much harder for someone to cheat.
