Platform change

Post by Ramdor » Sat Jan 12, 2019 4:34 pm

Hi,

Can anyone recommend if I should go for direct digital download from Giants, Steam or ordering media from Amazon.

After purchasing the somewhat expensive the xbox one x and dlc pass version, I have decided to switch back to the PC version. Just hit the bale limit on the xbox and honestly there doesnt seem to be that many bales in storage. Somewhat frustrating and can only blame myself for not researching it.

Anyway, looking to switch over to PC and wondering if there are any pros/cons going for the different download/purchase options.

Sorry if this has been covered somewhere else.

Cheers.

Apparently steam is the best option, someone not to long ago lost their download key when they bought it from giants, then people were saying always buy your games from steam
fs19 on xbox one(Thanks for the game)

My personal favourite is Steam for games these days, I like the achievements for all my games in one place.

Definetly go for Steam. All your games you purchase can be transferred onto any computer (as long as you have a steam account).

Steam has it's advantages. I personally dislike it.

I buy FS direct from Giants because I figure more of my money will go to them to help make it a better product.
Losing your key could be a problem, but I've never had it. I use Gmail and don't delete emails. A quick search for "Giants" brings my serial numbers for FS19, FS17, FS17 DLC etc.

with Steam you dont have to think about updates, key, dvd etc
you can install it on any device with single click

Not to change subject, but you mentioned the bale limit in the first post. What would that limit be for the Xbox?
