no 47 82.46%

No now stop making these ridiculous threads.

I think a 360/PC game should say, "ONLY ON XBOX 360 and PC"

Someone has said it, Consoles (wii/ps3/360) and PCs are independent platforms.

There are a few differences between consoles and PC. Consoles use TVs for their display output, PCs use monitors. Consoles are closed platform, PCs are open. Consoles are advertised as a gaming device, PCs are not.

Game's exclusiveness to me is bound on platform, if a game is available on 360 and PC, 2 different platforms, it isn't exclusive to 360 or PC. Such a claim is as retarded as claiming the internet is exclusive to PCs.
