Who will buy Day 1 or Pre-Purchase?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I don't want to buy on Microsoft (or console) because when it comes on Steam, I'd probably end up double-dipping - IF there's much of a mod scene, or simply because it looks/performs better. My impression is that games bought from MS are harder to mod or something - the way they do their installs is weird, I'm not clear on that but whatever. Now, if there isn't much of a modding thing for Outer Worlds, I probably wouldn't care toooo much. But I don't know what's going to happen, see.

I thought FFXV wasn't coming to PC for maybe a few or several years so I got wrapped up in buying PS4's, then it came out on PC/Steam 1.5 years later. Haven't touched the PS4 version since. While I don't really regret buying the PS4's, I'm not making that mistake again.

But no, I don't blame Obsidian per se. Nor am I angry about it. It's just business and business plans/patterns changes all the time. I don't have to agree or play along with the way business is, however.

Yeah, I'll buy it on release (only) because I want/need to support games I really want to play, in order to be able to play other games I want to play in the future, and TOW looks like one of them. 

Won't support early access BS, burnt a few times, now much too shy...

I'll buy it on release.  I've never (nor will ever) pre-order games though.

Okay, maybe that's not quite true since I did the whole Kickstarter donation thing for PoE.  But that's not quite the same thing.

I'm considering it, never one for FPS but it looks pretty darn good, plus am game to support Obsidian :)

Yeah.  I'm beginning to wonder if the lack of a Collectors Edition or or similar merch might be related to TOW being available on Games Pass. 

It's possible that the decision was made that it's hard to justify creating and distributing a special-er $90 version of TOW when Microsoft is trying to entice players into picking up the monthly subscription and getting it part of the Games Pass library.

As we get closer to the release date I'm considering pre-ordering it. Not through Epic--no way will I reward them for their ****ty exclusives crap--but some other store, perhaps. It looks like such a great game.

What if it comes out on Origin as well but not Steam?


Sounds like a lot of you are Steam fanboys. Not sure why, Steam is a piece of junk.
