Is there some way that it would be possible to set up some sort of discount for purchasing a game across more than one platform? As things stand, I’m a bit frustrated by the Steam situation. I’ll grant that a lot of the rollout is down to Steam doing flood control on their system, but…let me take Somme Trench as a quick example: I’d like to buy that game, but (no offense to the author) I don’t really want to buy it twice (once now and once later if it comes out on Steam). The Steam version would be preferable because I can play even if I don’t have an internet connection, and as a result I’m far less inclined to buy it now, sale or no. By the same token, if I buy something now and then it comes out on Steam, absent a deep sale I’m going to be torn on spending money a second time on it.
So…is there some way to, directly or indirectly, offer a credit of some sort for multiple-platform purchases (or, at the very least, for Steam repurchases), be it in the form of being granted credits to buy other games/short-circuit IAPs or something else as an offset? Right now, the situation is only slightly frustrating, but it is going to get rather irritating if I’m stuck buying a bunch of games a second time like this; by contrast, if there’s an offset I’ll be highly inclined to splash out for buying now and then buying again later on Steam. I doubt I’m the only one of this view.
