@PhantasyStar369 I played FF7 like 20 years ago. Next you'll tell me how sad I am because I won't see Saints Row 3 on Steam for half a year because of EGS exclusive deal. Oh woe is me how will I survive without those remasters. Please, are you unironically comparing single player titles that I can get on Steam years later at massive discounts, all patches and DLCs included, to online game where population numbers matter for group content? Please, I need to know if you're serious so I can laugh at you.
You're obviously dense to not understand the point was exclusive deals are the reason it's not even mentioned of a Steam version. Microsoft still gets a 35% cut from the sales that will happen on Win10 PC version. Once it goes to Steam it would not get said cut. But it's cool you are one of those Steam snobs who won't use other launchers. I'll just block someone who is far below me in every way
An example of steam incompatibility despite using the same login system for both the standalone and steam version comes in the form of Astellia Online. When you open up the steam version of the MMORPG, it requires you to MAKE A NEW ACCOUNT with the astellia website. This is not avoidable. If you already signed up on the Astellia website for an account, you can never use the steam version of the game, despite them using the same login system (an astellia website account) for both. There's no option/link on the steam version's launcher/etc. that allows you to "Login with Existing Account." (Keep in mind, Astellia is Buy to Play. You also have to buy it on steam before you can launch it, and get this issue.)
Some people want to avoid this issue. I'll be playing on the Microsoft Store version myself, because I'm not snob enough to let my desire for the steam version get in the way of me wanting to play PSO2.
