Epic Offered Sony US$200 Million For PlayStation Exclusives
The Epic vs. Apple trial seems to be delivering more and more crazy news as time goes by, especially when it comes to what the former wanted for its Epic Games Store. These include Epic promising US$1 billion in advances for exclusives.
We now know that Epic offered Sony a US$200 million advance to get first-party PlayStation games on the Epic Games Store exclusively, according to recent trial exhibits. Epic offered Sony “US$200 million minimum guarantee for 4-6 titles” and was awaiting Sony’s response. As far as we know, only two Sony-published titles have released exclusively on the Epic Store: ReadySet Heroes and Predator: Hunting Grounds.
It’s not known whether these two games are for another separate deal, or that they’re part of the US$200 million batch. In any case, Sony is at least guaranteed US$200 million whether those exclusive games made their money back on the Epic Games Store or not, as part of the minimum guarantee.
The document also pointed out two other deals that didn’t go through (image via Resetera):
Imagine if the PlayStation deal was greenlit: it would have been a different era for PlayStation gaming and PC gaming as a whole. One can dream, eh?
