Does Exclusivity Still Matter?

GR - "The big decision for gamers this holiday season who don't have the luxury of being able to throw a grand (or more) into their precious hobby is whether to buy a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One... or (possibly) Wii U. Back in the day, when console exclusives were far more prevalent, the decision may have been a bit more clear-cut; however, with both Xbox One and PS4 offering so much more than just a drive in which to insert your game, there are several other factors to weigh."

ITs the only reason to buy a console.

Only reason? Not even close to the being the truth.

Exclusivity are NOT the only reason to buy a console.
Some many other factors to take into consideration when buying a console..from friends to type of games.etc..

For me it is, i play all my online games/third party games on PC. my console friends list tends to be small because most exclusives i like are SP. Maybe if a good twisted metal comes out or if smash bros has good online.

The only reason I bought a PS3 was for GT5 and GT6 , the only reason I bought an Xbox360 was for Forza 3 , forza 4 and Forza Horizon. Its only those exclusive games brought me to buying a console. If those games were on PC I would never have bought a console because I hate using the controller.

i guess i am in the minority but i have never cared for games being exclusive to one platform, what do i care if another person gets to experience and enjoy the game i purchased on console A to be played by someone else who has console B. i believe the more the merrier

Well, exclusives aren't the only things that matter when I buy consoles, but they do play a big part of it.
I pretty much dig ps for naughty dog's games and god of war and I dig xbox for halo and some of its other exclusives.

It's definitely the biggest deciding factor for me. Whichever platform has the lion's share of exclusives usually is the one that gets my money.

Exclusivity matters to the brand. Its a competitive market
