Square Enix took advantage of its presence at The Game Awards 2021 on December 10 to confirm that Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade will arrive on PC on December 16 and that Forspoken, the new action RPG developed by Luminous Productions pen exclusively for consoles on PlayStation , will do the same next May. There is a common denominator in both: They will have a price of 80 euros in its version for computer.
This decision, which has not satisfied the community, set a new precedent in PC video game distribution, given that one of the peculiarities of the titles on this platform is that they are usually cheaper than normal. In fact, companies like Sony have begun to distribute exclusive titles of PlayStation Studios on computer, but by 49,99 euros (instead of 79.99 euros, its new maximum on PlayStation 5). Xbox Game Studios, for its part, sells works such as Forza Horizon 4 and Gears 5 on Steam for 69.99 euros; while Forza Horizon 5 and Halo Infinite are cheaper, 59.99 euros.
Thus, that barrier of between 50 and 60 euros for premieres of large productions – in their simple editions – on portals such as Steam and Epic Games goes to a new standard, which is now experimenting with 79.99 euros. This movement does not mean that it will always happen like this; but it does demonstrate the intention of the Japanese publisher to establish this new model. Everything will depend on the commercial performance of both titles.
