So now people suddenly like the idea of 3rd party exclusives? Good to know.
If Nintendo fronts the bill and published the game, why not? Bayonetta 2 and 3 would not exist if not for Nintendo. Nintendo published Octopath Traveler and helped fund the game.
There is a clear difference between investing and taking part of the publishing process vs simply buying timed exclusive rights for the hell of it.
Besides these are new IPs and collaborations I am talking about, not long standing franchises being locked off of other platforms. Bayo 3 is the exception, but Sony and MS turned the idea down. Blame them, not Nintendo.
