Forums - Sony Discussion - PS4: Red Dead Redemption 2 Will Have Some Sort Of Timed PlayStation Exclusivity

Oh no, Xbox One owners will have to wait a little longer for DLC that only a quarter of them will even pay for to begin with! The horror!

Year 1-2, i would call it a strong move, fit for the moment you want become the number 1 console, but, due to current playstation advantage,  it fells unecessary. For real, ps4 is making more than 2:1 on xbox life time sales and it's selling almost 3:1 along the year, this is "overkill bully" toward xbox if true, but... you can bet your money Xbox would do the same is they get the chance.

Xbox started this last gen and it has come back to bite them royally. I pity the xbox gamers.

Sony did it with PS2 before Microsoft ever did. And before Sony, Sega and Nintendo did the same thing. Before THEM, Atari was doing it. It's nothing new.



I would rather play on PS, because I have a Pro. But, if this timed exclusivity is anything more than cosmetics, I'll wait until the exclusive period is over and buy the game used, for Xbone.



I'm willing to bet PS also agree's that they wish these exclusivity deals would stop. It's just not easy to get everyone to buy a PS4 that's all.

Trying to hate Rockstar is like trying to hate oxygen.

Interesting how these types of articles were not popping up left and right last gen, when MS was starting this trend. Now, all of a sudden that Sony has started doing it, it's horrible and can't be tolerated. Oh, but we'll throw in a quick line about MS, just so we can say we mentioned it.

It doesn't really matter who started it, it's a stupid practice that needs to be put down immediately.

Oh, I don't really like the policy, myself.  Though, I don't think its as big a deal as some make it out to be.  I'm just pointing out the hypocrisy of the gaming media.

Sony is already beating MS into the ground in terms of consoles and software sales, I don't think they need defending or justification (for lack of better words) for this stuff

Pointing out hypocrisy is not the same as defending.  Also, it changes nothing that PS4 is on top.  That doesn't just automatically make them the bad guy and MS the good guy.

I agree, defending wasn't the correct term to use, i couldn't find the right word to express what I wanted to say. Neither company is good or bad, they're both neutral dicks who want money. I'm sure MS got flack for it, it's probably just become more frequent and the console of top tends to pull these stunts.

It could be Rockstar who came with the offer/threat.
MS knows this generation is lost and may have said "no thanks"
but giving exclusivity to MS may have been a too big threat for Sony.
Rockstar will probably sell the same amount either way but now they get something from Sony.
