Now, it’s funny how the ones who constantly whined and criticized Sony for money-hatting exclusives are nowhere to be found now. It’s ok for MS to flash its money, but when Sony does it? … Yeah, they so evil and arrogant.
One difference is gamers gain absolutely nothing from these moneyhat deals. You're basically celebrating a corporation paying big bucks so others can't play the game, while you were always going to be able to play it anyway.
Now Microsoft is at least offering these games for good value in Game Pass, while also making them available on PC and xCloud.
