Cause there were a lot more to those consoles doing poorly.

How about you make a list of consoles that went on to sell very well thanks to exclusives?

And if you think exclusives dont mean anything to the overall value of a platform then....... well i don't know what to say to u. 

So you actually agree with me, but try to make it look like you don't. If there is more to the failure of WiiU and Vita, then it is also a reason for other consoles to succeed, because they did things differently. So exclusives are just a part in the whole picture.

I don't think there has ever been a debate about exclusives just being a part of the whole picture. 

It is.

The whole point warranting my reply is someone saying they don't matter.

They do. Right along with all the other parts that matter too. 



Around the Network

I don't see why w10/steam MS games were excluded as other have pointed out when other titles are on more than one platform.

Xbox would still look bad in comparison, no need to make selective rules against them. Could have been a really interesting chart



Not surprised people have issues with the list here and on reddit. You can’t have an accurate list because people will always find faults and have biases. That said, would anyone really be surprised by an accurate list?

PS4: more de facto standard exclusives from Japan, more exclusives from Sony, more network exclusives since Microsoft fucked that up at launch

Nintendo: more high quality exclusives, less of everything else. Numbers will also be off since Switch is so young

Xbox: less exclusives than the other two, constant bickering about what does and doesn’t count as exclusives.

Ah, I see. A misunderstanding. Yeah, exclusives do something. Not sure how much, but they are obviously not irrelevant. Many other things matter too though.
