Forums - Gaming Discussion - Games should be made "EXCLUSIVE" for one platform again

3rd parties should be multi-platform to all consoles and have no loyalty. 1st and 2nd party titles are the only titles that should be exclusive.

Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

Arent enought exclusives around here already ? I mean, every year got at least 10+ games, who will play all of that ?
Also is the fact that for example Dissidia FF or Ori are a big deal? Not really imo.



Yeah... no.

Also, exclusivity deals are still very much a thing.



Owning a PC, PS4, and a Switch, I play multiplats on PC, and leave the exclusives to console. I don't see a reason for exclusive games. As everyone is saying, the consoles are similar, and it isn't a hassle getting a game up and running on another console. It's not a good idea money-wise to leave millions of potential customers out from buying your game.



Sadly we live in a world when even when a game only exists on a single console for a good reason (The company paid for it and would not exist without it, hello Bayonetta 2 and 3) that people riot.



The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?

It's a shame we exist in a world where games that exist due to people funding said games, are able to make their way to multiple platforms, thus making more money.

No thank you. Everybody deserves the right to be able to play great games.

Well, technically, everyone has that right. Buy the system it is available on. 

Really, I think the bigger picture being missed here is that there are already a lot of exclusive games to play. Sometimes, 3rd Party companies go to one of the console companies to make them, but most of the time, these franchises come from in-house. So, we really haven't stopped seeing exclusive games of several types, which begs the question, ZODIARK, what properties are you looking to have exclusively, exactly? And, for what platform?

3rd party exclusivity is bad for everyone involved.

Some gamers get excluded from playing a game they might want to play.
Only option would be to buy all the systems.

3rd party developers are losing tons of money by disregarding potential customers on other platforms.
Fanbase cannot evolve further, which will hurt potential sales of every sequel.

Leaving out a single platform could be beneficial for a developer, but making it exclusive for one definitely isn't.

You are able to play all games. Or does anyone locks you out as soon as you've reached a certain number of hardware? What are one most recent greatest games btw?

 

Everything in moderation. Especially when it comes quantity.

It was more well balanced once. Today it feels all so... mainstreamlined.



Hunting Season is done...

It's cool for for platform owners, not as cool for developers. With the cost of game development today, I don't blame devs for wanting a bigger market to sell to. And, technically, this benefits us all more since it ensures that more developers stay afloat and make more money.
