Â The whole timed exclusive thing in video games has never sat right with me. It reeks of desperation, just a little; as though Sony and Microsoft are two great Scrooge McDuck-like entities desperately clawing at our cashtacular. Craving our sweet, sweet money, and racking their brains for any nefarious ways of getting at it. Â
But then you remember, thatâ€™s exactly how it is. Thatâ€™s what greases the slimy-ass wheels of businesses everywhere. Timed exclusivity is a big deal with the likes of Call of Duty, where DLC will hit one console before the other, a right thatâ€™s changed hands between the two over the years. Now it seems to be coming to the enigmatic Resident Evil 7.
We already knew that the upcoming survival horror titleâ€™s going to have a VR mode. Weâ€™ve seen that already. According to a little Internet snooping, though, the modeâ€™s going to be exclusive to PlayStation VR. For a while, at least.
As Escapist Magazine reports, a shot of the upcoming title's boxart hit the gameâ€™s official Facebook page over the weekend. It was quickly taken down, but not before the Internetâ€™s nerdly ninjas got their hands on it:
What do we see there? Two pretty darn interesting little blurbs. Up top, PlayStation VR exclusive. At the bottom, the small print: Exclusive to PS VR for 12 months.
So there it is. Donâ€™t worry, Oculus Rift-ers, your time will come. Eventually. Probably.
