Does Exclusivity Really Matter?

Analog Addiction Writes: "Does exclusivity really matter? This question has become a hot topic over the past week when two titles that were originally exclusives on Nintendo’s Wii U console, made the move over to multi-platform.

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razors Edge was to be the ‘definitive version of Ninja Gaiden 3′, providing gamers with a slew of improvements, though only improving its Metacritic average from 58% to 69%. Providing gamers with bonus playable characters, problems from the original game being repaired, an assortment of new moves and the big change lacking from the original version, the ability to dismember your foes. Razors Edge will now be appearing on all consoles this April, the upcoming version however doesn’t affect the RE version already accessible on the Wii U system, fans still had first opportunity to play the superior version of the final product."

As the console maker yes, why would anyone have an incentive to buy your console if EVERYTHING it has is available else where?

A lot of the games i prefer are actually exclusives.

Mario Galaxy,Mario Kart Wii,Red Steel (eff what you heard number one was still a classic) Metroid prime corruption 3,LBP 1&2, Uncharted 2, Demon Souls, Heavy Rain,Yakuza 3&4,MAG,Killzone 2,Flow, Motorstorm Apocalypse,GT5,Modnation,White Knight Chronicles,Forza 3,Mass Effect,Alan Wake,along with Halo 3's online and gears two's co-op are the best games ive played this gen the only multiplats worth mentioning (i know mass effect and alan wake are multiplat but they was not when i had an xbox) also the only ones worth mentioning imo are.

Dungeon Defenders,Sleeping dogs, yeah ive planned many multiplats but they just aint as good as exclusives most the time imo

You buy a console for the things that you can't get on other consoles, so yeah, exclusivity does matter.
