Exclusive Reviews: Crowding One Voice and Shunning Others

Drew Bergmark of Original-Gamer.com: Yesterday, I was going through social media wondering what people were questioning about with exclusive reviews. I hadn’t heard anything about any exclusive reviews for months despite liking multiple regions of IGN on Facebook. IGN’s Xbox head Ryan McCaffrey skipped St. Patrick’s Day on Sunday because he was working on reviewing possibly one of the year’s most anticipated titles: BioShock Infinite. (BioShock: Infinite, IGN, Irrational Games, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Is this the first time a big site has reviewed a game before the majority of other sites? No, it's happened loads of times before. And the same with published magazines reviewing a game first. This isn't new at all, peeps need to calm down. If it gets an amazing score it's because it turned out like it looked like it would

You didn't read it. I always call people out on each editorial I post here on N4G and you are that lucky one today. I explain why exclusive reviews are bad for the industry and consumers in the editorial. You should try reading it. Maybe next time, I'll just look at the first word in your comment and say what I feel.

I didn't read it because it doesn't warrant a read. And I didn't say I did read it. It was an opinion
