    How much money did Sony give Square Enix?

      I don't get why people are so baffled. Exclusive deals like this have been in games since the 90s. Earthworm Jim had exclusive Sega content, The PS1 Mortal Kombat games had content not on the N64 versions, the Xbox 360 had exclusive Call of Duty stuff, this is all part of competition, companies trying to give us reasons to get their console.

      Doesn't make it less shitty, dude.

      I think he's wondering what has changed now for people to actually start complaining, because this has been the first major example i see for this case. Hell, only a few years ago everyone was a-ok with Ubisoft having Star Fox content for the Switch version of Starlink and no deal for the other versions.

      Not to mention that is one of the most egregious examples ever. If you're dismissing that just because "it's the way it's always been", you're being wilfully ignorant and dismissive.

      It was always shitty. It was shitty with star link, it was shitty with Sonic & sega all stars, and it’s shitty now.

      but good god, I hate that I was right in thinking there’d be more sectioned off in this game

      Lol, fuck off Square and Sony

      @KHCast I forgot about that! I could accept Banjo/Avatars on 360 and Miis on Wii because of first party rights, but having several SEGA brands exclusive to PC was lame. Although IIRC it was a much later release and SEGA simply weren't interested in the going through the associated costs of updating all the other platforms.

      That and some of the added characters (2 from Total War, one from Company of Heroes and one from Football Manager) had more presence (if not complete) on the PC market. Although in that case it could be Sumo just got told the exclusitivity beforehand and decided to pick and choose themed racers.

      @Thigolf  Why is it shitty? So basically you're saying Nintendo is shitty for doing that Wii U exclusivity deal with SEGA a few years back. Are they also shitty for putting their games only on the Switch? In the entertainment industry if you have no exclusive content you're nothing dude, why would I spend money on something, be it a console, a streaming service or whatever if there's nothing it offeres that others don't ?

      Was SEGA shitty for not putting Sonic 2 on the SNES as well?

    11. KHCast


      @Blue Blood Even in those cases, it still was a case of devaluing the PlayStation version and charging the same amount for it. Still shitty even if it “makes sense” given the characters. Hell, having different content in the same game based on different consoles is still in itself a ridiculously dumb idea to me, since it essentially tries to FOMO us and make us feel bad for not getting the other “better” version(s)


      @pppp that’s a lotta false equivalences you’re making 

      “In the entertainment industry if you have no exclusive content you're nothing dude” 

      In the case of video games, that’s why first party exclusives are a thing 

      “Was SEGA shitty for not putting Sonic 2 on the SNES as well?”


      LOL WHAT? 

    12. Thigolf


      If a rich as fuck company shoves money up the ass of another company to keep content from other platforms, it's shitty, yes.

      Especially if the former rich as fuck as company has plenty of studios and cash to make their own content anyway. Noone is mad that Sony made games are Sony platform exclusives. People are mad that Sony and Square gatekeep their third party shit. Sony gets sales. Square gets cash. The consumer gets NOTHING out of this, other than fucked over.

      So basically you're saying Nintendo is shitty for doing that Wii U exclusivity deal with SEGA a few years back.

      Thinks back to how RoL literally had one leg in the grave coming out the gate as they had to port the game down from hardware they already had working builds for. Not to mention how the series in general had next to no footing tech wise this generation largely due to being stuck on that gen for another 3 years...

      ... I mean to be fair, it was largely Sega being stupid there too.
