Forums - Sony Discussion - I hope Sony does not listen to Microsoft call for open online gaming

The fallacy here is that people are not simply buying consoles because exclusives. They buy it first because they aren't PCs and only then decide which of the console to get by exclusives. Believe me when I say that if there were no exclsuive games on consoles, they would still sell a lot.

Just listen to any console peasant rant on why consoles are superior and you will see that exclusives are just one point of many.

That's not true, if there are no exclusives, the wii u wouldn't even exist. Or it will die out like the PS Vita to the point nobody care anymore.

Depending on the exclusivity. If the games were on PC but still console exclusive it would've sold the same. If Nintendo puts their games on all consoles there wouldn't be a point for the Wii U in the first place. Which only shows the missing appeal of your product if the only draw is the exclusives on it.

One console less for gamers to buy is a good thing.

Nintendo games on PC ? That would be the least thing they would do. Mobile i can understand since they already on it. I agree with your last sentence tho. But i couldn't careless tbh, since i only own one console and it's all i need. But if you give me an Xbox One, i would gladly accept it :3



@OP why on earth would you not want to be able to play with more players??.
