Multiplat games breed mediocrity.
The best games this generation, are multiplats, or timed exclusives, with ports.
Gears of War
Left 4 Dead
The Orange Box
Their graphics have also been astounding.
If those games were mediocre, it certainly wasn't because they were mulitplat.
In fact, like with FFXIII, those games were developed for a more powerful system, and then ported down. Those games are still the best games this generation.
All PS3 games could be easily ported to the PC, with upgrades. Most of the best exclusives on the PS3 don't have many features that take advantage of the consoles' exclusive strength, BR.
People prefer exclusives, because this gen, we are fans of consoles, not games, and while games are fun for a while, consoles are fun forever, so we support the console over the game, everytime.
Losing exclusivity, means that we hate the game, and didn't want it anyway.
I understand your argument. That multiplat games can't be optimized to the PS3 because of BR. The best 3rd party games, now and in the future, will be multiplat, to the benefit of all gamers. You'll just have to get over any inconviniences this causes you.
The most hyped games this generation are exclusive. I'll give you that. However, those games aren't the "best" games this gen because they are on the 360, Wii, or PS3. They are great games because they have had an assload of money dumped on them, because they are exclusive.
Multiplats, with equal assloads dumped, have similar results.
You really think that LBP couldn't have been done as well on the PC, or the 360? Maybe you do, but....
...do you think Galaxy, or Gears 2 couldn't be done as well on the PS3?
I think if you follow that thought, your argument quickly becomes, "only PS3 exclusives don't breed mediocrity," and then guess where your headed with that attitude?
