I am suprised considering the price for its age. Maybe the success on Steam might warrant a sequel.

Yes sure, Sony wouldn`t make a sequel because of the sales on PS4 but now will because of Steam, 100% legit.

Sony turned down the sequel probably because it wasn't profitable enough. Bend Studios wanted to make a sequel.

You are majorly wrong. The game was profitable, we already know of it. But it didnt had a good critical reception and took a long time to have the ROI. And nope, Playstation main strategy is increasing Playstation sales not Steam so your argument doesnt hold much water.

If your argument is correct and Sony only care about increasing PS sales, why would they release games on PC? Why would they even bother? Yet here we are with Sony creating a Steam Page..
Also Profits > Reception for a buisness.

They are putting games several years old on Steam to have additional profit. But sure keep thinking that one day of top 1 in Steam is what decides the title will get a sequel.

The game might of made a profit but it might not have been profitable enough to warrant a sequel. Not sure why you are not seeing the positive side to this game doing well on Steam so far. The game released just 2 years ago and the company wanted to make a sequel. More profit is a good thing for both bend and Sony.

I think people get too caught up with what is directly in front of their nose. Not making a sequel IMMEDIATELY is not the same as never making a sequel. No reason why one needs to be made immediately, and giving it a rest before coming back to it is perfectly fine strategy.

Need to strike the iron while it's still hot. Especally for a new IP

Congrats bend studios!
I think they sold a solid amount on ps4 that should warrant a sequel but this will push it another step further!

Wow, I don’t know anything about Steam or it’s sales. Is this as impressive as it sounds?

It's not that impressive as this is calculated by the total revenue on a single day. It is pretty clear that a game will sell pretty well at launch. How well it really sells will be seen in the Weekly sales charts of this and the following weeks.

Seems like Sony's onto something by having their own section on Steam. I'm glad PC gamers are starting to get to play their games.

Seems like for all the PC gamers that say they don`t care about the PS exclusives they have been getting top seller positions when they launch.

Same for the Xbox titles. PC is just a monster audience. Too big to ignore.

KLAMarine DonFerrari (on 18 May 2021)

Maybe because some PC players don't care and some do. Or some do but not enough to buy a console.

Chazore DonFerrari (on 18 May 2021)

Same could honestly be said for games on PC that eventually get a console launch.

  • +4

Like ? One example pls?

  • -4

Because it is so common to have someone paying for an exclusive for PC right? The only time something is exclusive to PC is because the dev/pub didnt ported by their own choice, usually because they dont expect big sales on consoles.

All of Valve and Blizzard Games.

DonFerrari Azzanation (on 19 May 2021)

And who paid for Valve games or Blizzard to not be on PC? Did you like even read the point?

  • -2
Azzanation DonFerrari (on 19 May 2021)

The point is showing console gamers also love PC exclusives when they finally make it to consoles. Lets not have double standards here. The exact same thing happens on the other side of the fence to. I am not sure where you are getting your point from.

  • +2
DonFerrari Azzanation (on 19 May 2021)

Sure there are console gamers that love when PC exclusives come to console, still you were replying to companies paying for exclusivity to one platform.

  • -2
Azzanation DonFerrari (on 19 May 2021)

I am not sure what paid exclusives has to do with this conversation. Sony games coming to PC are not paid exclusives and neither are PC games coming to consoles.

  • +2
DonFerrari Azzanation (on 19 May 2021)

It had to do with what you were replying to. You replied to me saying that there is no paid exclusives on PC (to be PC only), so whenever a game dont launch on consoles is most likely the publisher didnt saw value in launching it. Them you replied to me with all Valve and Blizzard which made no sense.

DonFerrari Azzanation (on 20 May 2021)

Ok then. it was after mine, and I missed the name in front. My bad. Although I dont remember Blizzard games that launched in console and had big sales I recognize that Valve had some games console gamers asked for even if Orange Box on PS3 didnt work very well.

Well at least that explains why we are both confused with each others posts.

You and others might not see it lately, as console gamers are so use to getting PC games that its become the norm these days.

But let me throw a few names just to show you the monsters that PCs have let loose on consoles. The original Doom was a PC exclusive and blew the doors off on almost all platforms. Half Life is considered one of the greatest games ever made which got ported across and just recently the legendary Diablo 2 Resurrection due to release as a multiplat.

These games were just off the top of my head. Those PC games dwarf anything Sony and Xbox has brought to the PC market (outside of Halo)

We need to be realist here, this isn't just a one sided affair. This happens on both sides of the fence.

  • +2
DonFerrari Azzanation (on 21 May 2021)

Yep, well Doom have been in PC like ever since early 90s, and I think it only came to console quite recently. Not really my cup of tea, but yes it was very well received on console.
Half-Life wasn't part of the orange box?
Diablo was quite pushed by Sony and they made a big deal of it, but truly I don`t know how much it sold, but I guess since they put some versions and ports it done well enough to justify it.
Sure there are plenty of userbase on console that want and like some PC games and vice-versa. Thus why my reply was mostly on the reason for why some PC exclusives exists still compared to why console exclusives are still there. At least the confusion is solved =p

Just a heads up. Half Life 2 was included in the Orange Box, the original Half Life was ported to the DreamCast, PS2 and Xbox as a standalone game.

Ok, didn`t remember, actually never played HL, only CS and on PC.
