Another win for the Epic Games Store
Great that more people get to play this gem.
Many more people need to experience this
Definitely a Journey worth taking!
crapgamer is gonna make a video on this
That dude is a buffoon. Surprised any self respecting gamer would listen to that clown.
He makes his money by trolling PlayStation fanboys.... have you not worked that out yet?
@gunstar75 He's also a huge liar but con men are common in the gaming community I suppose.
@Gunstar75 I have a passion of hating Crapgamer. Because he is hypocrites, stupidity and selfish. I will never forget for what he insulted to the dev who lost his son by cancer.
a free plug. good work, i think.
Crapgamer? I've never heard of a Crapgamer but I have heard of Cuntgamer. I'm thinking their the same guy. He post anti PlayStation vids about 6x daily and HUGE, AWESOME, MEGATON Xbox News vids on YouTube, right? I think the channel is called Cuntgamer Reviews. He never reviews any games but, I think he's reviewed his cunt several times and sometimes several times in the same day. I'm pretty sure we're talking about the same douche. His friends are Squealer and CuntEastWood?
Oh, you have no idea how I hate these two idiots. They are same as Crapgamer.
Good more gamers get to play Off topic: didn't Sony own this IP?
Yup. Sony owns the trademark. Annapurna Interactive must have worked out a deal to get the PC publishing rights.
Trademarks don't protect IPs and aren't proof that Sony or any other publisher owns an IP.
"Trademarks don't protect IPs" Partially, it does as trademarks are a part of IP ownership. They are not using the name "Journey" without Sony's blessing. "Within the gaming industry, a product is normally connected to multiple trademarks. Not only will it be identified by the producers’ and distributors’ trademarks but it may also be identified by the game’s trademark itself. It is also possible to safeguard the videogame’s characters through independent trademark registration. As such, the companies in this industry should, and commonly do, proceed with the registration of all trademarks related to their games, not only allowing their consumers to determine the corporate origin of the goods but also prohibiting their competitors to launch similar games, identified by a similar name, image and / or characters. In short, the goal of filing trademarks may be considered as a trifecta. I. Trademarks allow the consumers to correctly determine the corporate origin of a given videogame; II. A trademark also aids the consumers to determine the product’s quality based on the affixed trademark; and III. A trademark fosters a relationship, based on loyalty, between consumer and videogame developer. As such, with the relationship between consumer and producer in mind, the trademark system constitutes the most important intellectual right within this industry." https://inventa.com/en/news...
Razzer Right, trademarks protect words or logos. They don't protect a game's code, the artistic work like story, music characters or inventive game design elements that you can find in a game. If you made a game and only applied for a trademark that only protects the game's title but did not copyright the game's code and artistic work or didn't patent an inventive game design element that you might have in your game, I could legally sell your game with the same exact lines of code, story, characters etc under a different name. If all that Sony has it the trademark that protects the word "Journey" and thatgamecompany has the copyrights to the game's code and artistic work they can easily release the same exact game on any platform they wish as long as they change the game's title or as long as they didn't make some sort of exclusivity deal with Sony. As I said trademarks aren't proof that a publisher owns an IP and they can be circumvented if you do not appropriatelly protect an IP with copyrights and patents.
@Imalwaysright I don't disagree. But the game is being ported to PC as "Journey" so as that involves Sony's permission which they apparently have given. No idea how the rest of the IP ownership works. I imagine it is stuffed in a 100+ page document full of legal mumbo jumbo. Certainly not as easy to find out as trademarks.
The trademark owner is Sony https://trademarks.justia.c...
No, this is not a Sony own IP.
There is literally a link above you that says Sony owns the IP?
Surprising, since I’m certain Journey is owned by Sony.
Sony has published on PC before back when they owned Sony Online. Sony Music is also capable of publishing on Switch and PC without interference from SIE.
Sony online and Sony Music are fairly distinct branches of the greater Sony from Playstation. Journey is game that was Playstation exclusive for over a 5 years.
I stand corrected.....I thought I just looked this up not 2 weeks ago and found Sony was not the IP owner. I posted a response to his question before I seen your "Sony is the IP owner" And thought I better recheck but I can't find the info I found a couple weeks ago. So with that said I'm not gonna die on this sword so you are correct and I am wrong. Sorry for the misinformation on my part.
it's a good chill out game. nice to see pc gamers will play it.
Really great game. Glad more will get to play it.
It's a brilliant game, a lovely experience that I'll definitely revisit in the future.
Gained an online friend from this game. Great to experience with a random.
Because it's a PlayStation former exclusive this community is like "Nice!" but if this were Xbox going to PC they'd be ripping right in. Came to the comments for the confirmation...was not disappointed.
Guess you were not around when PS Now announced PS4 games would be playable on PC, huh? There were plenty "ripping right in".
I've been on this site for years and years. And I know I am not wrong at all haha. It's the current state of N4G I'm just pointing out the hypocrisy and how hilarious it is to me as a fan on both fences of the Sony and Microsoft side owning both.
The majority on this site that used to favor Xbox favors PS now. And you don't like it. Hypocrisy, indeed.
I couldn't get into this game
I couldn't either. I remember gliding along the sand thinking "Wtf am I doing?" lol. It's got nice visuals and a unique art style, but I just couldn't get into the game itself.
Great game! More people are gonna experience the journey.
This is not PS4 news
