Every console manufacturer has been getting less and less 3rd party exclusives every generation. 3rd party companies now see they will make much more money making games multiplat. The PS5 will have even less exclusives than the PS4. There is no reason for 3rd parties to limit their fan bases anymore.

SFV is console exclusive. No Man's Sky, Neir Automata, Crash, and DQ were timed exclusive. Final Fantasy VII Remake is a full on exclusive. Like I said, the days of the PS1 and PS2 are over, but that doesn't mean Sony won't enjoy exclusivity of some kind from third parties, especially if they outsell Xbox AGAIN. 


That term "console exclusive" needs to die. It's either exclusive or it isn't. Do I need a PS4 to play SFV? No. I do not know why people try to exclude PC or make a game sound exclusive even though it isn't.

Final Fantasy Remake is only timed exclusive. It will definitely go to PC and maybe Xbox.
Crash and Neir Automata were timed, but No Man's Sky and Dragon Quest 11 weren't. They were on PC day one, and for Dragon Quest in Japan it launched on 3DS day one.

Wow, so you think it‘s a good thing that Sony is paying Square-Enix, Atlus and others for exclusivity?

listen okr, you have been here for 13 years you can't be surprised

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

No, you're just putting words in my mouth. Whether its a good thing or bad thing, these companies are businesses, and like any business, they'll do whatever they can to get people into their ecosystem, such as exclusive games. In the case of smaller developers, many times such devs can only support one or two platforms at a time, so they'll often start with the one that has the most success. 



I think a lot of PS5/ PC releases will happen from JPN devs (timed or not).

PS4 and XBO were also similar and thay didn't stop PS4 getting games that XBO didn't.

If you wanted to play Street Fighter V on a console though, PS4 was your only option. PC gaming isn't as mainstream as console gaming is, so nabbing exclusive console rights has been proven to be a vital tactic for platform holders.

I truly hope Sony doesn't announce a ton of 3rd party moneyhats tomorrow. I don't plan to buy a PS5 until later in the gen, might even wait on the mid-gen refresh to buy it. So I would hate it if they have a bunch of moneyhatted 3rd party games I am interested in playing, timed or otherwise. Moneyhatting is something that should stop. Phil claims that MS won't moneyhat big games anymore after the backlash they received this gen for moneyhatting Rise of the Tomb Raider, and so far he has lived up to that promise with no big 3rd party moneyhats since Tomb Raider. I really hope that Sony follows suit and stops moneyhatting this gen. It's bad enough they ended the current gen by moneyhatting 1 year timed on FF7 Remake.

Having a year exclusive is a pretty big deal. So not calling FF7r an exclusive is kind of nuts. Yes, it will come to PC and probably Xbox and next gen, but having to wait a year isn't something I would like to put up with if I were on the other side of things. If there's a lot of that in the gaming industry I personally find it frustrating.

Don't get your hopes up IMO. Sony will be getting aggressive going into next gen, and will probably do whatever they can to maintain its dominance of the home console market, which means shelling out for timed or console exclusivity of big titles, even more so next gen I think, since they don't have an incompetent Microsoft making it easy for them. 



Idk why gamers support this practices. Like I get it if it was published or funded by the big 3. But if its not what is stopping them fro. Making it multiplat?



Pocky Lover Boy!

The thing about it that makes little sense to me is that they largely seem to focus on moneyhatting JP exclusives. Xbox Series is already at a huge disadvantage against PS5 when it comes to Japanese gamers, as well as western fans of JP games. Sony can easily be the market leader in Japanese games without exclusivity on those games, they will sell more on PS5 than on XSX as multiplat games. If Sony wants to steal Xbox marketshare they need big western exclusives, but they don't moneyhat those. Almost every moneyhat rumor I've read for tomorrow's show is a JP game; FF16, Street Fighter 6, Resident Evil 8, Silent Hill, etc. I'm sure those are cheaper to moneyhat than western games would be, since the publishers aren't losing out on too many sales by not having them on Xbox and/or PC at release, but for the price of moneyhatting all of those combined they could afford to moneyhat a bigger western game and actually steal some Xbox marketshare. It's a strange strategy, if you're going to moneyhat at least make it count.
