If the goal is to increase software sales, which is a motivation of going multiplat, that's about the fucking worse idea ever.
Maybe Sony can pay themselves for timed exclusivity?
Instead, maybe Sony should pay themselves to get DLC, missions and armor earlier than other platforms.
OR MAYBE, they should just release the game as a multiplat and be happy with all the extra money they make from that. Sounds crazy, but I think it could work.
There is absolutely no way to decrease SW sales, save make a shitty product. As I mentioned above, Sony's is the only MLB game on the market. If Nintendo or MS fans want a MLB game, they'll have to get Sony's. Doing timed exclusivity for a few months would definitely help push their own console sales and probably wouldn't hurt the mutiplat sales much. Of course, like I also mentioned above, not saying they will go down that path. Just a possibility.
No, I'm saying the goal is the increase sales, that's why its going multiplat. Your suggestion of timed exclusivity may hurt sales.
Not sure if The Show is a system seller, certainly not nearly as significant as other Playstation exclusives. Also the game's release coincides with the season. It sounds like you agree that timed exclusivity may deter some sales.
