Where did you hear this was an Xbox/PC exclusive? If anything, it will launch on GP.

The teaser very prominently only shows an Xbox and Windows logo. It's put out by EA, so there's no reason to not display a Playstation logo

Marketing deal? We'll find out.

However, no cross play and no PC. Doing so would mean EA are listening to their fans.
I don't understand why they would show the windows logo on the original teaser... But given that they are using the next gen engine it makes sense that there's no PC game since even FIFA and Madden aren't getting that on PC

It's pretty common for one platform to announces a game, or for the publisher to announce it and emphasize one platform exclusively. Then hours later, it's revealed to be cross-platform. I know many times where this happens at E3, just can't think of a specific one ATM.

That really only happens when it's revealed during a showcase for that company

It would never be done normally because it does nothing but lose you potential revenue


Not that that matters because thwy showed the windows logo despite it bit even being on windows

Yes exactly that's when they do it. Considering times aren't exactly "normal" right now, this is an Xbox reveal trailer that just isn't linked to an event is all. And I don't know what revenue would have been lost because of the trailer.
Also an important distinction here, watch the trailer again and you'll see that there wasn't a Windows logo anywhere, but a Microsoft logo. So it was never implied there was going to be a PC version in any case.

Mitch Marner’s X-Factor would be disappearing during the playoffs.

Resident Evil Village (Resident Evil 8) had a marketing partnership with Sony, and RE Village ended up selling about 80% of all copies on Playstation and half of total sales on PS5.

I do believe he’s the cover star for PGA Tour 22.

If you are only playing single player, that makes sense.

Never understood those that waited for sales to buy multiplayer games. To maximize online gameplay, best to purchase early.

I play NHL/FIFA/Madden too infrequently to justify full price, never had an issue finding people online to play, especially after 5pm the pool gets larger, even if I’m a few years back. I also don’t need the latest roster. This year should be a good update though for next gen graphics.

Don’t forget NHL always goes 50% off on Black Friday followed by the December sale which is usually another 10%. We’ll see if the later launch date this year affects the sale but I doubt it.
