IGN;As two more next-gen consoles loom on the horizon, we examine the state of console exclusives and their relevance today.
Yes, exclusive software and features matter.I'm happy Sony decided to build up their first party because they knew the brand couldn't depend on 3rd party being exclusive since the market is divided..I'd love for MS to follow the same path and start building up studios to produce new quality core software..
Exactly. Lack of exclusives is what got MS in dead last place. Exclusives matter a lot. Do you see how excited everyone is about Sony's new IPs The Last of Us and Beyond: Two Souls compared to how nobody is excited for Gears of War Judgement(only 90k pre orders)? You can get 3rd party games on either system so exclusives are what sets one console apart from the other. You do the math.
