Very trrue. The problem arises though as this would only make more work for the developer. It all comes down to would it be profiable enough. Gamers never win with big buisness.

Doesn't make it the truth.

Let me guess, a Bostonian?



+1 for Diomedes

Good to see the game of the year coming to PS3 (I hope)
but for me, in term of sales, Bioshock will not push a lot Xbox360 or PS3 sales
- no multiplayer
- Halo3 coming

Note : Big annoucement coming about Bioshock

Then you think Final Fantasy XIII and Versus XIII should go to the 360 as well?

 I seriously don't like that idea at all. If you cancel out 3rd party exclusives it changes the entire gaming market and for the worse. All games then don't get the time required to fully utilise the consoles capabilities. Even if the 360 gets MGS4, it will not be the same experience that the PS3 version offers because specific games are bulit using a specific hardware and ports simply don't get the time put into them.

So in otherwords you advocate a method that forces the consumer to buy a console whether they want it or not solely for a game they have no choice in choosing another console for. Of course, you could just choose to ignore that franchise altogether and not buy the console, but if that ideology was actually sound then there would be no value in exclusives to begin with now would there?

Ports are a necessary evil. They often reduce game quality, but they offer more profit (at least most of the time). If you look at the majority of the highest ranking games of all time though, most of them were exclusives, and that isn't always because they came out of a first-party publisher.

To people who say that wanting exclusives is selfish, you have to understand that accommodating two different console architectures can cause a lot of problems sometimes, since they often have their own quirks.

We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers…Also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls.  The only thing that really worried me was the ether.  There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge. –Raoul Duke

It is hard to shed anything but crocodile tears over White House speechwriter Patrick Buchanan's tragic analysis of the Nixon debacle. "It's like Sisyphus," he said. "We rolled the rock all the way up the mountain...and it rolled right back down on us...."  Neither Sisyphus nor the commander of the Light Brigade nor Pat Buchanan had the time or any real inclination to question what they were doing...a martyr, to the bitter end, to a "flawed" cause and a narrow, atavistic concept of conservative politics that has done more damage to itself and the country in less than six years than its liberal enemies could have done in two or three decades. -Hunter S.

Yes I do

The flip side of that coin, is a bigger fanbase, meaning that the franchise makes more money, meaning a bigger budget for the next game in the series, thus a better game.  Plus, not all ports are watered down from the original, most of the time the port looks better, and the second console gets a few extras that make up for having to wait longer for it to come to the system.  Also, there is very little difference between the PS3 and 360 performance wise, whatever is done with sixaxis can be done with a slightly different control scheme, if the game doesn't fit on one disk, they can always use more (they did this with the original MGS, and I don't remember hearing people complain).  I could see your argument more if we were talking about porting Wii games, since they are based around a controller that isn't available on the 360 or PS3.

I agree 100%, but I think it's the console maker's job to give 3rd parties the reason to develop for their consoles, by providing a large userbase and good tools and support to make games, so that developing for each console is profitable.  I stated in another thread that this is why I think Sony is getting some lesser quality ports, b/c the userbase and dev time isn't giving developers enough budget / time to make quality ports right now, so I think the work suffers.

 Anyways, this is just my ideaology, but I'm an optimist, I know that not all great games will go multiplatform, but it would be nice for people who don't care to own every console every generation.

I can see where you are coming from but the argument is m00t. The odds of Final Fantasy XIII and Versus XIII being ported to the 360 are practically 0%.

I actually had a long argument on this that I ended up deleting because it's a pointless argument. 3rd party exclusivitity will always be there, as Microsoft and Capcom have done with Dead Rising, Lost Planet and Namco with Ace Combat 6 among many more 360 exclusives not coming to the PS3. That is a double edged sword.

As for the 360 fans tooting fanbase, get a clue. The 360 system has been out for over 2yrs and only has just over 10mil sales. That is not great hardware sales, not at all.
