Seems like the best deal right now on the PC version from a reputable vendor. Haven't seen this discounted recently.

It runs terrible on pc. Also the game stopped being supported all together since the first update.

Runs better on console and was cheaper recently. $25 @ best buy. Expired but still recently cheaper.

Still runs terrible? I thought update improved it. also, ps4 price is irrelevant for those of us who don't have a console.

Runs great on Ryzen 5 1400 + RX 580 at 1080p with all other settings at max.

There was an update to nier back in july 2017 (according to steam update history) Last time i played, it constantly crashed every half hr. Its a terrific game in itself but not optimized for pc, nor is it regularly updated with content or news in general

If you game and don't have a console, i assume you game on pc and if you don't buy day 1 release, you wait because most of us are budget gamers who wait for sales. It has been cheaper than $50 on pc during steam winter sales i believe

I'm currently playing through with the FAR mod on PC, just finished the 'A' route with no crashes or major issues. The main thing is to install the FAR mod and turn down the global lighting (default is ultra).

The only patch they released for this was game was to add DLC. Ya gotta have priorities I guess.

Eh, I played through this game near release with an i5 2500k (7 years old) and R9 290 (5 years old) and had no crashes. Had a consistent 40+ framerate on high at 1920x1200 throughout.

Wouldn't call this a slick deal, though.

yes that used to be true, but hasn't been the case for at least last couple years. maybe the PC games are still cheaper at release but seems the console versions drop in price sooner and to a greater extent
