    That's a game I wish I liked. It just didn't grab me and like most games in the genre, it felt unfinished. Although, to be fair, it was unfinished when I played it. I know they've added a lot to it since and I should revisit it. If you want to check it out it's often on sale at Fanatical.

    Too late, £8 seemed cheap enough for a punt - seems a pretty good foundation, this is a one man band I believe? Either way I’ll get my moneys worth.

    While watching a few videos for tips I stumbled on Night of the dead, that looks pretty good too...essentially mix 7 days with a tower defence game - looks like it could be fun, especially in co-op. Just not sure I want to take a £20 punt

    I'm not sure Sony had many options when it comes to releasing The Show on multiple platforms. In order to retain licensing from MLB and its associated organizations this is the deal Sony agreed upon. At least that's how I understand it. Nobody plays hardball better than MLB.

    Sony releasing their content on PC makes sense from the perspective of extra profits. Their games are generally regarded well and are likely to sell decent on PC. If the return is greater than the cost of porting then it's kind of a no brainer. It also makes good business sense in that it allows them an additional revenue stream that has large potential for growth.

    There will always be a (large) pc market out there, which is only growing. Its a market where sony and studios can gain from, now and in the future.

    Sony conservs should be happy. PC gamers get to add extra funds for 2-3 year PS5 exclusives.

    This is the thing. With PC, you can support more $ in 1st party development.

    MS putting it's Xbox exclusives on PC (which we need to understand as "Microsoft Windows" to understand part of their motivation) was actually likely to be a advantage for them. Sony sort of had to counter it.

    Plus I think that there's an argument the more platform agnostic a game is the more popular it can be (see Minecraft, Fortnight)
