    It's harder to optimize games for PC, with a wide range of hardware/specs, then for consoles where every single Xbox One or PS4 out there has the same specs, and runs games the same.

    Delaying a game four days before release is a dick move. QA/testing should've been done long ago, not four days before release. That's just stupid.


    I wouldn't mind if it was a month, but four days? Are they stupid?

    It also could have been that right before release, a major bug or something similar was found and they had to make the call to move it back to fix it. This isn't a new thing, and it's not that long of a wait.

    Whatever they say, PR is all BS anyway.

    Like someone has already said before someone where else you cannot delay a game 4 days before release but they did it anyway and giving everyone that preordered the game a free copy of Sonic fucking 1 a game everyone that wants Sonic Mania already has like 5 copies of at this point.

    Sonic 1, on Steam, which uses a horribly programmed emulator. Steam's Genesis emulator sucks ass.

    It uses Jenesis for their emulator base, that's just hilarious XD

    Yup, one of the devs on Steam stated it used Jenesis with Unity for the emulator, this is why their Genesis/MD collection emulation is so bad.

    Which I still think is stupid to do four days to release.

    Delay? Okay.

    4 days until release? Wow, what the fuck!?

    I was getting the game on Switch anyways, but that's just fucking stupid to do.

    PC version only, they wanted to optimize if further for PC other platforms will proceed as normal. Free Sonic 1 Copy for Steam Users as well

    Honestly I think this is just a move to mitigate potential piracy, limit datamining to find hidden secrets, or maybe even add some sort of DRM.

    And yet people who own the other versions will be able to dump it sooner than the PC port. DRM is just evil.

    I doubt that. Are any of the current gen consoles hacked?

    If they truly wanted to mitigate, they would delay all versions.

    I don't see how that would help anything. That'd bring us right back where we started, except with a 2 week later release date and a lot more pissed off fans.
