can't believe it
For comparison, Dying Light 2 sold 5 million copies in its first month. I wonder why it was more popular.
I guess I'm not renting it.Why is Alan Wake 2 a digital-only release?
There are many reasons for this. For one, a large number of have shifted to digital only. You can buy a Sony PlayStation 5 without a disc drive and Microsoft’s Xbox Series S is a digital only console. It is not uncommon to release modern games as digital-only.
Secondly, not releasing a disc helps keep the price of the game at $59.99 / €59.99 and the PC version at $49.99 / €49.99.
Finally, we did not want to ship a disc product and have it require a download for the game — we do not think this would make for a great experience either.
Would be like $45 if it was on GMG and full priced

Alan Wake 2 is only $50 on PC compared to $60 on console.
Epic published a physical edition of Alan Wake: Remastered. Despite all the flowery language about how AW2 being digital only will help YOU, the consumer, I'd guess it didn't sell very well at retail and they have a lot of left over stock and don't want to repeat that with AW2.jesus I know some people had limited expectation for a AW2 success but even them would have never though the game would end up being digital only
That's true. I still think a Steam (and GOG) version will happen as Steve Allison said they would be exclusive for "a long time" and not permanently, but you're looking at several years.Would be like $45 if it was on GMG and full priced
But I think i'll wait to see if there's Steam version eventually.

The wheels will never come completely off, but it'll continue to trudge around with its 5-10% market share.The giveaways this go around have been really disappointing.
Shitty coupons, shitty giveaways, hardly any coverage in the press or forums of the sale and a "please buy me" price for Alan Wake II. Almost like the wheels are coming off this store.
Maybe in concurrent users when it first launches, but likely not over the long term. CS2's release will be massive as a ton of casuals will play to see what the hype is about, but it'll eventually level off. I think CS2's launch will be in the 2-2.5 million concurrent range. Also Fortnite is available on every platform (except iOS lol) while CS2 is PC only.I wonder if Counter-Strike: GO/2 would overtake Fortnite within the next year? I could see it if it continues growing like it has.
Sometimes I wonder why devs patch out something that worked well to something that doesn'tSo, looks like PAYDAY 2 added EOS into the game and now is broken and without many features.
I guess forcing crossplay (EOS) on PC in all multiplayer releases is their new goal.
Wasn't this game given for free last week? I've noticed that more EGS giveaways switched to EOS on Steam. It's probably a requirement to participate in Epic's giveaways.Sometimes I wonder why devs patch out something that worked well to something that doesn't
Most probably because of a money bag...
Not quite but close. We know due to the battle of the Tims, that multiplayer games that release either sameday or later on EGS (if it's first EGS it doesn't apply) if they have multiplayer they must support "store crossplay". And the faster way to do that is to throw in EOS.It's probably a requirement to participate in Epic's giveaways.
That is not surprising for me at all. I was an early adopter of these handheld devices (owning both the first GPD Win and the first Indiegogo Aya Neo). Windows on such a small screen always has been a hassle at best or completely unusable without attached M&KB at worst.In a few communities I frequent the reaction to the ROG Ally has been mixed.
For people who know their way around Windows, perhaps have a HTPC or controller-focussed setup, it’s an incredible device.
For everyone else it’s been a nightmare. System onboarding has been… problematic.
A lot of the media have been hyping this up as a “Deck killer”, completely blind to the fact that the user experience of Windows on one of these is challenging.
I’m expecting a lot of returns/open box sales of this device. Asus and all the other OEMs looking at making a device like this will have to think very carefully about the user experience of the next model.
I love how the url and the game title have nothing in common. Imagine if you can't even search this game because you don't know which of the 2 the EGS search engine will look up
