After much hype, delays and rumours Hello Games’ galaxy sized epic No Man’s Sky is out now on PS4 and arriving on PC by the end of the week. Backed up with a day one patch that builds out the content substantially, it has the potential to keep players occupied for quite some time. And it all looks really, REALLY good.
I finally caved in and have placed a last minute pre-order for the PC version through GOG.com. Main reason I chose them over Steam was that Good Old Games avoid excessive mark up on digital titles and try to keep prices fair compared to US game prices and exchange rates.
That mark up is known here as the “Australia Tax” – it can sometimes add another $30-40 on a game’s price at retail or digital channels so if you can find a way to save on a new release title you usually do.
With luck, I’ll be checking the game out over the weekend and taking some screenshots too. Initial reviews suggest it is a different kind of game to Elite: Dangerous so I’m looking forward to seeing what new tricks it brings. 🙂
