The evil of exclusivity

This past week there was alot of talk about IGNs review-exclusivity deal for BioShock: Infinite. Spillfeber.no has writen a peace, where the author talks about how that is not only damaging for the reviewer, but also for the consumer.

Original story is writen in Norwegian. (Aliens: Colonial Marines, BioShock: Infinite, Culture, Dev, IGN, Industry, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)

I have absolutely no problem with exclusives, I brought a Playstion three knowing I wouldn't be playing mario kart,Halo etc etc etc.

I also believe many a exclusives give you the best value for money...So what games on the Xbox 360/Wii/wii-U packs as much content as Little Big Planet & Modnation? What experience do they have to rival heavy rain? Which because of the six axis along with graphic usage was only really possible on the Playstion 3 at the time? Could you imagine if these games went multiplat what they would lose? Unless someone gets a better version of the game...Which is what I am 100% against unless you are doing your best on both platforms.

I don't like how I think Call of duty has been getting worse and worse on the Playstation 3 Post Modern Warefare.

Timed exclusives I couldn't careless about if the content is not online. I couldn't care who gets the chance to play first, if it's a game I want I will get it in due time. Only thing I miss is the first day,week,months hype and not being able to talk about what happened I still enjoy the same software

Hey. The topic of exclusive games is a whole other thing, as this article comments on the topic of exclusives reviews (see IGNs BioShock: Infinite, Game Informers Aliens vs Predators).

But it's a you bring up some good points, and it's a discussion that is worth having.

Talk about a huge FAIL at reading the article.

This is about the Exclusive IGN Bioshock review, not some standard console exclusives flame-bait article.

Im just as surprised O.O
To receive the honor to exclusively review a game would make the reviewer go soft on the game and give a good review that it didnt deserve. Not sayin this is the case for this game but it just wouldnt make sense for them to give a bad review to a game they have been granted exclusive reviewing privilege.
