5 PlayStation Games That Should Have Stayed Exclusive, Plus 5 That Were Smart To Leave

GXC: "Game consoles have always been defined by their library of games, usually by the exclusives it has had. PlayStation especially has been defined by their exclusives. On PSone it was Crash Bandicoot, Tomb Raider, and Final Fantasy; PS2 it was Metal Gear Solid, Kingdom Hearts, Gran Turismo, and Grand Theft Auto; and PS3 its been Uncharted, LittleBigPlanet, and inFAMOUS. A very noticeable trend is the lack of major 3rd party exclusives, and while many made a smart decision to move to multiplatform, others made the wrong decision and have suffered for it." (3DS, PS2, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

Final Fantasy and Metal Gear because those are 2 franchises that would have benefited the most from the capacity in a blu-ray disc. By next-gen every single game will have high-capacity discs and lots of ram at its disposal so multiplats should be good across all platforms and that's when exclusives will truly shine to define the platform.

Its more than fair to say at this point that FF didn't need to say exclusive because Square wasn't prepared to commit to it as such. FF13 wasn't even optimized for its own software, muchless story and setting.
