Can't wait for it to sell more copies in a week than it has in a year on EGS, just for Remedy to make their next PC release a year-long exclusive again anyway. :rolleyes:
even the sales are same, but the profit are NOT, since they have to give more cut to STEAM

88% of jack shit is still jack shit. It's more about taking the cash that Epic is offering up front for exclusivity, and then still benefiting from Steam's marketing and exposure to a larger audience anyway.

I'm curious about that.

The only statement I could find was that they had 17.7 million revenue in sales last November... So after three months (https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sou...P4ZXrz-nutpYNuD9j&ampcf=1&cshid=1597284942129).
So... My guess is that they'll release on epic games first in the future, yes... Probably especially if epic haters buy their game on Steam later anyways.

CONTROL is my second favorite non-nintendo game made in the last 10 years, the first being Death Stranding. I loved how fluid Control was (although i was playing on an high end pc), but i saw that the game ran really, really, really poorly on consoles and on lower end pc specs. It was like a better version of that Star Wars game that also ran really really really poor on consoles and lower end pc specs.

Agree. I tried playing it on PS4 and couldn't tolerate how underwhelming it was on terms of the technical experience.

While this game is amazing one of my all time favorites this is a scummy shitty move that you cant upgrade until you buy this version imagine if every time you upgraded your GPU all the sudden one of your games on steam just makes you buy it again or you could buy the ultimate edition and you wouldnt have to buy the game when you upgrade your pc again. Thankfully no pc game does that.

More reasons to get a PC then a ps5 or xsx

Precisely the reason why "voting with your wallet" is meaningless in this scenario. If sales on Steam are high, they take it to mean there were no consequences for the year-long exclusivity period. If sales are low, they take it to mean that demand is higher on EGS so they made the right choice by going exclusive. There is no way for consumers to properly voice their displeasure with the practice, and that's why Epic throwing around ill-gotten Fortnite money is a cancer on PC gaming.
