SEGA and Atlus have announced that they are negotiating with platform holders to bring more of their classic games and newer titles to both video game consoles and PC, following on from the success of Persona 4: The Golden on Steam. The types of games and titles they plan to bring to platform holders systems are:
- Console and PC ports
- New multi-platform releases from the start
- Bringing priority to Steam releases alongside console
Here’s what was said:
Q: “Persona 4 the Golden” has been selling well on Steam, but do you have any plans to sell newly released games on Steam as well?
A: We remastered “Persona 4 the Golden”, a title previously sold on the PlayStation Vita, and released it for sale on Steam this fiscal year. Because of the game’s critical acclaim and its low selling price, sales were much stronger than expected. We will continue to actively promote porting previously released titles to Steam and new platforms. We are also negotiating with platform holders for new games in the future, and we’re considering ways to sell under favorable conditions for each title. Among them are measures such as preparing PC versions of the titles from the beginning, with multi-platform releases in mind.
