why they even bother to give it to pc/mobile users at this point.like yeah you can have it but it won't work
Because people would be even salter
in a nutshell:
if you are PC/Mobile feel free to use it as cosmetic bow
Is it really a precedent? PS users have an exclusive sword and wing glider already. The sword sucks tho so no stress.
This is normal for Sony. At least Genshin was smart enough to give Aloy to everyone. She's the real prize.
Same. I'm sure the other 4* can work on her fine.
imagine if Mihoyo have a deal with Valve
"Crowbar ( Sword ) can be used on any platform, but the weapon effect ( Bunny Hop ) only applies when playing on Steam Deck"
What's the point then?
even prototype cresent or the inazuma craftable is a better choice
This is a bad direction for the game. Limiting weapon skill to playstation only.
Dont we already have that for the sword of descencion. As long as its not BiS on anyone other than aloy then i dont really mind
I personally don't mind but it sets an important precedent on the future direction for the game such as platform-exclusive effects or items.
Worst-case scenario would be future characters having passives, costumes or even constellations being made exclusive for console. The Chinese community don't like exclusivity too and Mihoyo has already recieved huge backlash for it with Honkai.
They dont like exclusivity that exclude them, they dont care if other servers dont get
Sony is a stone in the gaming industry shoe
Fuck this shit man, this set a really bad precedent in Genshin.
Hope the chinese community will say something about this since Mihoyo basically only listen to them
> Hope the chinese community will say something
could happen. most of them are mobile which makes this bow useless for the majority of cn server and they hate it if western players get something while cn doesnt
MHY: We want cross-saves
SONY: Alright give us a character
Its not that great of a bow anyway. I hope ppl dont start a riot
*puts down pitchfork*. W-what are you talking about? There's no riot here, right?....
Can we have some pc exclusive things as well? Also mobile exclusives? I don't like exclusives but if it's going to be like this might as well make it fair. I mean am I wrong or only playstation got exclusive stuff atm? Afaik they got a sword and a glider I think
It's probably only obtainable through cross-save? Unless mobile/PC users can't use current exclusive Playstation four star sword since I dunno if they can (fill me in if you know)
They can but the passive doesn't work on any platform but ps4
I hope mobile players also get some exclusive stuff for the amount of space it takes, how hot it makes my phone and for how long the loading time is even with good internet connection :')
Happy tho for the PS player! ^ ^
Sony really wants some of that sweet sweet gacha money huh
They shouldn’t do exclusive weapons just cosmetics. It’s dumb to have weapons especially weapon ability’s locked behind a console
Bruh, these guys are evolving. We got a GRAND uncle now wtf
Genshin 1.4 was an absolute nightmare on PS4. I will never go back
Ya that was pretty clear…GR said so
you mean playstations twitter said so and gr repeated it louder
Not mad at all, at the beginning of the game PS users were excluded from several web events and also from daily logins. They deserve the weapon
Weren't PS users mad when they were excluded? It would only be natural for non PS users to be mad now that they are being excluded.
That's so fucking dumb.
inazuma bow or prototype crescent is better than this,
but its design is soo good
Is not the same thing as "RECEIVED."
ONLY PS users appear to receive the bow.
Well, it'll make for good fodder.
That is fucking nuts
Wording says you can only receive it on PS4/PS5. Since cross platform is coming (already here?) that means you can only obtain it over there, but then theoretically use it on PC after that too.
The fact that PlayStation does this shit is a reason for me that I’ll never buy their products. As long as it’s cosmetics it doesn’t bother me that much, but when actual gameplay is involved it really annoys me. No matter how strong or weak the weapon is, it’s a matter of principle. Cross platform play too, it’s so annoying that I can’t play with some of my friends because Sony refuses to allow it.
Thankfully we get the character, but I bet that was thanks to mihoyo and not Sony.
For some reason I don't actually mind that. I only use one one bow character and she's a support so unless it has energy recharge or something it's not of much use to me
f them tbh
Wow that's....dumb. Fuck the rest of us I guess. It'd be one thing if PS got an exclusive extra effect added but to just mess it up for the rest of us like that is lame.
If you're gonna make a game on all platforms
it's only logic that everyone get the same items with the same abilities, no?
This is a bullshit move. I don't care if HDZ was on PS4 first, it doesn't excuse it.
It's on PC now so there's absolutely 0 reasons why this weapon should work for only ps users.
I agree with you. Stuff like this is reason why I refuse to ever buy a PlayStation. Happens so often in many games and I don’t like it. Cosmetic stuff like the glider skin is fine, I personally don’t care about that, but it’s annoying when actual gameplay is involved.
Jeez isnt a 5* bow, isnt a gacha bow that will cost primogems to get. How entitled some people are.
Its a bow from a playstation game, which gets bonus power only when playing on playstation. Whats the problem?
If you dont play on ps then feel free to equip your favourite bow and move on.
It's really stupid tbh, now players have to have the PS AND playing on PS to use the bow :| . If we were able to obtain the bow they should just let us use it without this lame constrain. It's not like Sony has many extra PS5 for sale anw.
I have amos so i don't give a shit. Even the f2p bow will be better than this garbage.
Guys stop complaining about a free weapon. Why does it matter if it's useless for PC players?
It's practically useless for non PS players. Why make it available for us if we can't use its full power? Might as well just make it available for PS players only. I'm glad we got a free 5* character but this whole exclusive bow thing is honestly unnecessary.
Pay2play weapon for other platforms, free2play for ps players
excuse me for asking but what server is this?
Just Playstation players
The collab is most likely for promotion of Horizon Forbidden West so I'm not surprised. It's not a too good weapon and doesn't look great either so I'm fine with that. I'm more curious about Aloy herself, how she would fit in Genshin.
What discord is this?
Usable on any platform doesn't necessarily mean you can obtain it without using PS. Could just mean it isn't locked during crossplay
Well I'll just give her windblume ode then, it's collecting dust in my inventory.
If its effect just doesn't work then that puts it on a similar level to Crescent when dealing with things like Geovishap Hatchling or Azdaha.
I feel like I'll probably be better off with a Hamayumi in those cases.
I think the explanation is for psn users that linked their acc to mihoyo which allows them to play in other platform. Not the other way around
well its passive aint really amazing so we arent missing out on much. at the moment only ganyu could use it but ganyu's already so broken that she can use practically any weapon and still destroy everything in the game
idc if it will work or no, justwanna put it on Aloy for astetic so question is : can you get it if you dont have ps ?
