I'm sure there are others, but I stopped counting, and to these I say:
I have played most or all of these games on a non-360 platform -- at a cheaper price than on the 360, with better graphics, and with free online. I will continue pointing this out in every thread I ever see of this nature (i.e. any thread talking about 360 "exclusives") until you stop pretending these are exclusives because it makes you feel better in this console war. No, putting "console exclusive" doesn't make it better. If I said FFXIII was a "PS3 exclusive," you would bitch and moan, even if I reminded you that the PS3 is the only system called PS3 that has FFXIII. It's an obvious attempt to circumvent the very idea of an "exclusive" title. Not only can one play these on a different version, it is typically true that the 360 version is the inferior one by virtually any objective metric.
The "console exclusive" label is actually part of an enforceable rule - you're not allowed to try to take away from it, since it's a correct labeling according to how it's outlined in the rules.
Okay. First, I really don't like appeals to technical rules. As an example to explain my point, consider someone who tells you that you are stupid, fat, and ugly. You tell that person to stop, and he says, "According to the US Constitution, I am legally allowed to say those things." Obviously, he's technically correct (assuming he doesn't repeat them ad nauseum, which might constitute verbal harassment), but if you ever have to fall back on the argument that your behavior is technically legal, you're probably being a complete jerk.
Just because you aren't a criminal (i.e. you aren't technically breaking any laws) doesn't mean you aren't obnoxious. The same basic principle would apply in these forums: technically legal, but kind of obnoxious nonetheless.
Second, and most importantly, the OP did not say console exclusives, he said "exclusives." In the actual title, it simply says, "exclusives." Which, under the technical rules, is bannable. So, even if we're going to be technical, it's still wrong.
But I'm not actually interested in getting the OP banned or anything. I didn't even want to make a technical argument in the first place. I just wanted to point out the absurdity of the original premise, and apparently that makes me rude.
