Yes, and Nintendo paid to don't release Rise on the other consoles, and to 'delay' it on PC. It's how timed exclusives work. Sony, Nintendo and MS do this, and the same Epic on PC. It's cheaper for them than to pay for a full exclusive.

Jim was Head of Global Sales and Marketing since april 2016

2016 is when sony started to get 'weird' IMO it def wasn't just because of Jim tho
It doesn't cover 3rd party exclusives. Same goes with his current job position.

Sounds like Sony. Make other playerbases miserable, never add value to your own.
Microsoft, Nintendo, Epic, Stadia, Oculus/Facebook or Apple do the same.

They paid to keep content out of other versions of games why is this surprising at all. Sony isn't your buddy they are a business designed to extract cash from your pocket, don't fool yourself otherwise.

I'm not entirely sure that this isn't Capcom's business strategy with select tittles. Release specific tittles on consoles for early profit, then full price it again on PC a year later with improvements.

With that being said, if console makers want to through a pile of dough to keep it exclusive for a year or so, its a win both ways for Capcom. IMO

Sony is also the reason crossplay and cross-saves were not enabled.


Source

But didn't paid to get the game delayed on Xbox...

if this is true, that's fucking beyond disgusting not gonna lie... especially since it was not disclosed. IMO something like this should be mandatory to disclose publicly, this is ridiculously anti consumer, especially the cross-play part! holy shit!

And Sony are assholes for doing this, but I feel Capcom is even worse for taking the deal!

How dare Sony! Microsoft and Nintendo would NEVER paid for timed exclusivity!!
That exclusivity for Tomb Raider on Xbox was so cringey. Seemed at the time it was an attempt to fight against Uncharted and then Uncharted got delayed. So much egg on the face with that one. Funny as hell. Seems they learned a good lesson though, hell they've released their "exclusives" on Switch too so there's hope. Though, I'm struggling to think of a Nintendo example at the moment.

This is shit, but on the other hand...after Vita crashing face first on the floor for not having a MH on it i can understand them throwing money at Capcom for anything Monster Hunter related.

Eh. I mean, I don't like this shit but I don't see how it's any worse than the average timed exclusive. It's the same concept, pay devs/publishers to not release their stuff on other platforms.
If anything it's slightly better because they at least released it on Xbox

Probably.
What people always forget with these timed exclusives is that devs/publishers aren't actually forced to take the deal.

I’m glad I’ve been boycotting Sony games for many years, this just reaffirms why.
I'm guessing you only play PC games from select indie studios then, if you don't support the practice of paying devs/publishers to delay the release of a game on other platforms.

That doesn't make any sense, but to be fair that's what I say everytime some does something these days.

Xbox since 2002 and Nintendo DS since 2007; I’m content with that.

Is Sony also the reason Rise isn't coming to PC until a year later?

So, Nintendo Paid Capcom to delayed PC version of Monster Hunter Rise?

Cheer xBrain
The Switch version is not even done, Nintendo paid to announce the PC version on a later date.
Sony paid to hold the PC version back for a certain period and they blocked crossplay, seems the same but quite different.

We know Nintendo paid to push back the PC version but I'm not sure we saw anything about them paying to keep it off other consoles. I think it was always Capcom's plan to release the games for different platforms.

This is so fucking stupid. PC has nothing to do with consoles. I don't understand why Japanese devs love sucking off Sony bigwigs when they basically treat them like dogshit.

There were rumors that PlayStation was spending a lot of money on several exclusivity deals. Right?. So....keep crying I guess.

Right for what? Are you boycotting MS Nintendo hell even on pc epic games isnt shy to moneyhat.

disclosed timed exclusivity deals, while shitty, is a completely different thing.
this is a secret deal that not only pushed back the release on a platform but also made sure a pro consumer feature is not included in the game on any platform.

but I see the fanboys are here with the "but but but Microsoft! BUT BUT BUT NINTENDO!!!" arguments in full force

My bullshit detector is at 100%. I smell a thread close coming lol.

People on GAF often don't like to get information from reliable sources. May as well start posting tweets from Tim Dog and MisterXMedia.

I applaud your integrity. Good thing Microsoft, Nintendo or any other publishers abstain from such practices/sarcasm.
One of many reasons
Issues with saving, cloud, cross play, store closing, closing old servers, little backward compatibility support are other reasons.

You think Sony is the only one engaging in "secret deals"?

The game would be exclusive already they just paid to announce it at a later date for PC.
The game is not even done on switch how could the PC version release on the same date if development started later.
I read on the other site that there wouldn't be a PC version in the beginning so that would explain it.

I could be wrong here, but wouldn't Sony try to make game delay on Xbox instead of PC since Microsoft is their biggest competitor?
