"Almost none of those are timed exclusives."
I didn't say all.
What a cop-out!
So you can't explain why Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy, Detroit: Become Human, Batman: Arkham VR, Moss, Skyrim VR and the DLCs aren't timed exclusives.
So can you explain why Battlezone, Borderlands 2 VR, Polybius, Resident Evil 7 VR, REZ Infinite, Tethered, Danganronpa 1 - 3, Dragon Quest Builders, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD, World of Final Fantasy, Ys VIII aren't timed exclusives.
Here is a hint if the switch WASNT EVEN OUT YET - you can't call them timed exclusives. Because there was no intent to keep them from going anywhere. Because THERE WAS NO WHERE TO GO.
I wasn't even thinking about the Switch version of Disgea 5 when I listed it above, i was refering to the PC version... and PCs are existing since a few decades.
And you'd have to look into the game. Did they release the game. See that it went well THEN decide to port that game? That isn't a timed exclusive. That is a port.
No, you don't have to look into the game and if the developers planned to release other versions later. The game was exclusive and the exclusivity gets broken by the second version, making the game "timed exclusive". You are making your definitions and exceptions up to fit your argument.
I'm not your teacher. I'm not going to grade your home work. You want to prove a point - you research it first. I can already tell you it is an F just on not knowing the definition of timed exclusive in the first place.
You embarrass your point by trying to argue that Disgaea 5 is a "timed exclusive", while ignoring actual points like YES the destiny DLC IS timed exclusive.
This is the second time you are trying to pull the discussion on a personal level.
And do you know and can prove the definition of a timed exclusive? Where can we read that definition?
I told you to do your own research. I was finishing lunch and looked up two games. And the results are surprising!
"According to Nintendo World Report, sometime around the PlayStation 4 release of the N. Sane Trilogy, a lone engineer at Vicarious Visions spent his weekend trying to get the first level of the remaster up and running on Nintendo’s latest device. He managed to succeed, and it was at this point the company realised a port to the hybrid device was feasible."
They didn't even know the game was feasible for the switch by the time it release for the PS4. Why would sony "money hat" a game from a system that it wasn't even going to release on in the first place.
Detroit: Become Human
"During the March 2019 Game Developers Conference, video game and software developer Epic Games announced that Quantic Dream would publish Detroit: Become Human along with Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls for Microsoft Windows the same year, to be exclusively available on the Epic Games Store for a year before appearing elsewhere."
So it was exclusive to PS (along with two other games). Then epic came along. Suddenly not only that game, but two OTHER games were coming to PC. Where they will be on the epic store for a year.
So while you accuse the PS of "money hatting" and making a timed exclusive out of one game.. you seem to ignore that EPIC actually is making a timed exclusive out of THREE games.
The game had no intention of coming to PC until it was - "shocked" money hatted.
-- I grabbed the first two games on your list. And I've already shown that neither were timed exclusives. One wasn't even planned when it release for the PS4, and one was actually going to be exclusive until it got "money hatted" away by Epic.
I did that in 5 minutes. And this isn't even my argument. Now imagine what YOU Can do if you actually did any of your own research.
A) You don't know what timed exclusive means
B) You aren't even researching the games you mentioned. You are just going "it came to another system later GOTCHA". I'd be embarrassed if I were you. Nothing personal. Simply a fact. To have someone prove me wrong this many times, and to realize I put so little thought into my argument would horrify me.
This seems to get out of hand. You don't care what the definition of a timed exclusive is. So I'm leaving this argument - have a good day.
