    2016 is not something i would consider the past. make it 2014 and prior. It has become increasingly more so since 2016. 4 years ago isn't that long ago

    The past is the past lol. I'm just saying that this isn't something that Platinum itself started, nor made popular.

    i didn't say that. i said because companies do this it becomes a normal thing to do so and companies keep doing it more and more like it is normal while it ain't so. It's a new scummy tactic to get more money out of people their pockets and the more it happens, the more it becomes the new normal to do so just like how we were eased in to micro transactions till it becomes the new normal. You don't have to agree but i would never pay money for a port they already have all the base coding for making it easy and especially cheap to port over or any port whatsoever by a huge studio. If it would be a small developer without the backing of a big studio than i would consider it but supporting such a large studio with billions in the bank just so they don't have to spend another dime porting it over. Nah, thanks because if i would do i would contribute to big companies doing it more and more because they can because people are just 2 stupid to throw away money at them

    Rather then porting it to those platforms. Why not port it to an wi u emulator instead? You can then play it on pc and even retropie.

    Because i do. Why would i cared back then people being so dumb paying for micro DLC where i claimed the same thing and look what happened. Ofcourse i do care when gamers throw away money like that to corporate greed because it also impacts the people who don't want to and care about the gaming industry. The corporate bullshit people accept effects everybody so yeah i care and seeing the same thing happened with micro dlc wich i exactly was saying the same stuff i am doing now proves it even more

    It's not a kickstarter game by a small dev. It's a port by a big studio who have all the base code making porting easy and super cheap with already a large sum of money in their account. Massive difference

    You don't kno how many people are involved in making the port what with it being on multiple platforms and you don't kno how much money they hav-don't assume its all easy

    Urgh. Kickstarter is a beautiful tool for helping to make projects happening which otherwise wouldn't be found-able. Its a great tool to ensure that new different, sometimes radical, ways get taken and to resurrect assumed to be out-dated gamedesign. While big publishers understandable try to stick to a game formular as long as they can until needing to risk a brand new formular (think e.g. Ubisoft-open-world-formular or cover-shooter-formular). Seeing a studio, that of course can afford a small project like this easily, exploiting crowd-founding plattforms is disgusting.
    Yet it's a understandable business decision, fans rarely act on unethical behaviour like this when it comes down to not buying a product of a beloved company or franchise. I fear fans of media products somethimes can be such victims...

    Might sound like an asshole but
    Switch and PC, i can see that but i don't understand PS4
    PS5 is coming out this year, it'd make sense to wait and port it to the ps5. and if it isn't shit, maybe the Xbox series x

    with so many delays anything released on ps4 next couple of months is what is needed - plus why ps5 when its just an updated wii u game-ps5 owners want to be playing proper ps5 games and this game wont be on ther mind when theyl want to play the new games - plus ps4 should sel mor as of course massive userbase

    in which that massive userbase will immediately jump to the PS5 once it's released. Also, if people are buying remakes of PS1 games on the PS4, i'm pretty sure PS5 users will be happy with wii u games coming to PS5. I mean, it's the fucking wii u, it didn't sell well. Every gem on that system should immediately migrate to another more successful system, and Switch, PS5 and PC are the best choice.

    not everyone wil be able to afford ps5 on launch day surly you kno it takes time for a console to hav a massive userbase-so as the usebase for ps4 is strong thts the best option to achieve mor sales-if i buy a ps5 launch day im not gonna be thinking of a port to play no matter how good a game is-youl want to try the new games

    It's quite the opposite for me actually
    I'm mostly getting a PS5 for ps4 backwards compatibility, since i missed out on it. Lotsa good games on there, can't let them go unplayed
