With Sony just paying dev after dev just to take games already in development away from other platforms I wonder if it's already ok to call Sony the most consumer unfriendly company the gaming industry has ever seen lol. I mean, it's like they just want to force everyone to buy a PS.
yah well :) They are a businesses... Giving insensitive to customers to buy their device first, is kinda normal
I think calling companies "consumer unfriendly" when they bring more content exclusively on their platform, makes little sense to be honest. At the end, the company is not responsible for "all" gamers to be happy... Just the one buying their stuff and ESPECIALLY their shareholders. Sony is not here to please "gamers" around the world (even if some may believe so), they are here to make money. Same with Microsoft.
Now, for other platform's owner, it is unfriendly but well, the same can be said about exclusives after all (and Microsoft will probably end up with more first parties with all their studios and games coming out already than Sony this generation). Paying a third party to bring the game only on their platform or building the game only for their platform in kinda the same.
All in one, as I am playing primarily on my Xbox and PC, having something exclusive to the Play Station sucks and forces me to buy one. I even have to buy Xbox layout controller for it as my hands hurt so much after playing with the Play Station one... But I think this is more than fair game at the end if the strategy is working for Sony (or Microsoft).
