You miss one very important thing. All they could earn on PC they already earned. And there is a huge console market, which I'm sure is their next goal. But consoles are not like steam, you can't release half-dead game there. You have to pass certification at Sony/Microsoft with their professional QA. If half the perks do nothing, nobody will notice. But if a game will crash every 5 minutes, you can forget about it. And recertification costs money and time! That's why all these poor interns are now working for food to fix these crashes. And we serve as testers for stabilizing the game.
(before somebody goes mad - I'm joking)
You´re right, but the "game" is working like a screensaver, it would pass. (not joking)
Patch is out.
In which random thread can I see the patch notes? Did they finally improve the trees...but I guess the "update" will just fix some crashing issues so that people who paid 50-60€ can play this "game" again. And of course it will add new issues as always.
They have a lot of paying customers so they find out.
