As others have mentioned the game was only published by Sony outside of Japan. I'm approaching 200 hours on it. By the time the 'complete' edition hits on BOTH PC & PS4 I'll be at 250-300 hours. I'm hardly going to get salty about a game I got so much enjoyment out of going to another platform a year after it's launch. Does Sony pay for timed exclusivity? Yes- just like every other platform holder. However, often a game is exclusive to a certain platform because the developer/publishers wishes it to be, due to economic reasons or otherwise. 2 of the examples you mentioned: Yakuza and Persona are exclusive to PlayStation only because Sega/Atlus wants them to be (Shin Megami Tensai is exclusive to Nintendo).
