Take-Two kritiserar Metro Exodus Epic-exklusivitet

Nyligen avslöjade Deep Silver som bekant att Metro Exodus till PC kommer säljas exklusivt via Epic Games Strore. Det kommer alltså inte alls till Steam (förrän nästa år), och det har väckt heta känslor. Nu har även chefen för Take-Two, Strauss Zelnick, kommenterat saken i en intervju hos Games Industry, och han tycker detta är ett felaktigt beslut:

"That's not how consumers shop. To use an analogy that doesn't speak to our business, if you read Random House books, I presume you can get them directly through Random House, but you probably don't. You probably go to Amazon or other sites. So if you have something incredibly powerful, then I suppose you can say to consumers that it's only available here. But generally speaking, when it comes to broad-based entertainment offerings, you are better placed to be where the consumer is, rather than indicating to the consumer where they need to be. If your focus is solely on capturing retail margin, then you have to be very convinced you're going to be a great retailer. That's not something that's in our DNA. We make entertainment. We're really not a retailer."

Epic Games själva menar att de främjar konkurrensen, något som kommer leda till bättre priser och fler alternativ för spelarna (även de som har Steam) samt utvecklarna. Tror du att de får rätt i längden?
