PC doesn't count!!! oh shi$#@t!! **RUNS AWAY WITH PRIDE****
are these journalists/authors completely idiots??...third party exclusives are the substance that make the difference in console preferance...what the F*ck are they talking about??? Deadrising was exclusive to MS , some of the best Playstation exclusives clearly have been stolen from Nintendo and Ms ..this is clear pure competition so shut your mouth people (to s*t wannabe bloggers journalists )...Sony should have done this from PS3 era ..is a japanese company and clearly has more influence to other japanese companies is acceptable and wanted if you ask us (its one of the reasons that people buys PS consoles)..the same goes with the lame COD dlc and MS
Timed exclusive, that's all
If it's only on one out of the 3 consoles, I'd consider that a 3rd party exclusives and if it goes on pc, okay sure, whatever. Don't really care about that platform since I never game on it... The Pc version is something that is just "there" to me haha! It's not a platform that was mentioned to compete with consoles to begin with. It's upgradable and on a different level in terms of tech, which is why when an exclusive goes to pc it doesn't really phase me.
We have come to believe that exclusivity is in reference to consoles. Otherwise the PC would have the most exclusives...but there just called PC releases.
Completely agree. For the gamers in the console world, PC doesn't count. Xbox or Sony makes it exclusive.
@docknoss They said street fighter 5 will only appear on the ps4 for its lifetime. The only way it will come to Xbox or Nintendo is if they make an ultra or turbo version. That just speculation though.
The fact that a group are "excluded" means the game can be termed "exclusive". Not typically how the word is used, but it is what it means and it is very fitting for 3rd party exclusive contracts.
Well atleast in terms of Fighting games, almost all of the sales are going to come from PS4 because fighting games are not big on PC. And from that most of the sales in general come from the general consumer/casuals and they don't play on PC. So Street Fighter V is going to sell PS4s since the don't play on PC.
lol but doesn't that mean that most xbox exclusives are not "exclusives" then? Like, Gears of War? How come we are getting these articles now?
Exclusives are not dead, wtf is this prick on about?
LOL no idea
Lol this author should actually learn what "exclusive" means. It means to be limited, Street Fighter is being limited to PS4 and PC, so it actually is a exclusive.
Even when it was officially announced, SCE reps are referring to it as "console exclusive". I see what you mean though. Well played :D

I know its crazy, ima miss that stache'
PC is a platform. SFV is multiplatform. If SFV were 'exclusive" to PS4, then >cross-platform< play would not be possible. :P The word "console-exclusive" just sounds convenient.. for advertising and marketing purposes. . oh and for "console war" purposes.
It's exclusive to a single console...so how does the term "console exclusive" not fit here? It sounds convenient because it's a perfect description of the situation. It's a feather in the cap to make a console appear more attractive than a competitor. PC IS a platform, but not a closed one, and not a direct one with either console.
"The word "console-exclusive" just sounds convenient.. for advertising and marketing purposes. . oh and for "console war" purposes." Read what the person said, will you? If I wanted to play SF5, I could do it on pc OR ps4, right? Therefore I got a choice where to play it? RIGHT? Therefore 'exclusive' isn't the word to use to describe it.
God I'm so tired of typing this....so.... http://n4g.com/news/1631574... Games are either exclusive or multiplatform. Console exclusive means exclusive to consoles like Red Dead Redemption. The reason why there's confusion is exactly what you said. The console war's version of a pissing contest....
Will Street Fighter 5 be advertised on PC more than PS4?
If the PC does not count, that means Titanfall was actually exclusive to the Xbox One. People said Titanfall wasn't exclusive to the Xbox One because it came out for PC. Which one is it? Think carefully Sony fanboys.
Lets not forget the xbox360 version
Come on guys. Who actually cares about last gen? We're talking about current gen. And besides, Xbox 360 is a Microsoft console. Which means it's Microsoft exclusive.
Wtf you mean "who cares about last gen"? A console is a console. If they keep releasing games for last gen like Forza Horizon2, LBP3 and AC Rogue that AREN'T ON PC, then clearly it matters! "Think carefully" indeed.
Titanfall had a release in April for Xbox 360 as well.
It was a console exclusive, until the 360 version released, then it was a Microsoft console exclusive. It's got nothing to do with fanboyism, and everything to do with common sense. The new Tomb Raider will be a console exclusive to MS for a while, and the new Streetfighter 5 will be console exclusive to PS4, possibly forever if Sony weren't exaggerating at their conference. It's really not a hard concept. I'm surprised so many get so confused.
If the PC doesn't count, and last gen doesn't count, then the PS4 still had tons more exclusives. In a console versus console debate, PC doesn't count. For the most part, I've only seen Sony fans use PC after Xbox fans have. If you don't count PC, PS4 wins. If you DO count PC, PS4 still wins.
Well, no. You see PC is the only place you can play Titanfall and SF5. Therefore PC wins.
Lmao did you really just say that, and then say who cares about last gen, its an Xbox One exclusive, oh but 360 so its a Microsoft exclusive haha and you call out Sony fanboys. Why do gamers have these convenient agendas today?
Will Street Fighter 5 sell better on PC or PS4?
Really??Lol PS4 of course.
"Exclusives don't happen that often any more". Huh? Nintendo first party exclusives and Sony First Party exclusives come out at a fairly regular pace actually. MS are a little behind that curve, but they have their first party exclusives as well. I'm not a fan of multi-platform franchises suddenly becoming exclusive, but MS or Sony commissioning a new game from a 3rd party developer (like Sunset Overdrive) is fine. And yes, "console exclusive" needs to be a new term to describe those games that are also appearing on PC. It's a marketing phrase like any other that is indeed useful to any company who uses it. It's a selling point like any other, and I see nothing wrong with the phrase as it's perfectly descriptive to all but the really slow.
PC doesn't count. and the 10,000 units SF4 sold on PC shows that. SFV is a PS4 exclusive and they made it clear that it will never see a different console. By the sounds of things, Capcom needed some help creating SFV and SONY stepped up to help fund and develop the game. Microsoft didn't answer the call and its looking like it bit them in the @$$
I see you used Vgcharts, they don't take into account digital sales.
Which constitute almost all PC games sales.
SFV exclusivity is about as important as if Pong were "exclusive" on X1..
Well the only ones who call it a straight up "Exclusive" are moronic journalists looking for hits. The official announcement states it's a "Console Exclusive" meaning this is the only CONSOLE you can get it on. PC is a platform for sure but it's also a whole other beast that is pretty much unaffected by the competition of gaming platforms. So it's not messing with the term at all, it's simply saying it's a "Console Exclusive"
SF5 says otherwise. And no, PC dosent count. Besides, who in the hell plays a fighting game on pc???
It sure counted when Titanfall came out.
You can use any controller you want on a PC + there is cross platform-play across the PC & PS4 for SF5.
@trouble_bubble, Forza Horizon 2 for the 360 was made by a different studio than the Xbox One version. So it definitely didn't get the love and care the other one received. LBP3 is more of a niche title. It's cute, adorable, and fun before the newness wears off. Who buys a console for LBP? Sony supports their last gen consoles better than anybody else, so it makes sense for that game on the PS3. And lastly, please, don't bring up Assasins Creed part 1,000. If there is a franchise that's hand to hand milked as much as COD, it's the Creed series. Ubisoft would release it on the orginal Gameboy if it were not for the suckers who keep buying it on so many current consoles. Again, does last gen really matter?
Maybe if Assassin's Creed focused on the new consoles and not the old ones, it wouldn't run like a hot turd.
exclusive is not dead at nintendo for sure. There have been many recent nintendo games that were wii u or 3ds only.
Just thought about something regarding DLC costumes. We know that when Street Fighter x Tekken and SFIV were released on PC that modders were able to create their own costumes. Would this still be allowed with cross platform play? Meaning created costumes on PC would show up when playing against a PS4 player? I'm kind of leaning towards Capcom cracking down on that feature if they plan on releasing paid DLC costumes and the fact that it may disrupt the cross platform play feature if the PS4 doesn't support user created PC costumes. Thoughts?
its exclusive because pc doesnt count. most people when buying a machine to play video games dont even entertain the thought of buying a gaming pc
"The word "console-exclusive" just sounds convenient.. for advertising and marketing purposes. . oh and for "console war" purposes" And to the 100's of millions of people, like myself, that ONLY PLAY GAMES ON CONSOLES...PC's to me, are for making games for my consoles & for doing other boring $hit on....therefore, pc's don't count, to anyone other than 300pound nerds, with coke bottle bottomed glasses, splotchy zit faces, bucked teeth, hunched backs & hush puppy shoes, with comb over looking hairdo's, that sit around in grannies basement, playing W.O.W. for 23hrs a day, choosing what they'll have for order in McDonald's for the other 58mins & beating off to a digital version of Lara Croft for the 2mins remaining in a 24hr day. And, if there not playing WOW, then they are probably being there usual PC-elitist, d1ck selves on forums all over the internet. Everyone knows REAL MEN PLAY CONSOLES, WHILE GIRLY MEN NERDS PLAY PC's, AFTER GETTING THERE DAILY MANICURES....LOL
Where was this article when Dead Rising 3, Ryse and Titanfall all had PC releases?
Cant W8 to play SFV on my High end Console PC Gaming
