The GTAIV Effect

Torrence Davis of The Bitbag writes, "It's the 1st party games that define a system, not the 3rd party. It's true that many GREAT franchises started out as exclusives on the PS2, but you have to remember that PS2 completely dominated last generation. "

Where's that Exclusive downloadable Content at?

The thing I hate about it is when u see fanboys who only been an xbox fanboy and now is a 360 only fanboy, talking down on these games that use to be exclusive to the ps2 and now this next gen is going to the 360 and then these same catz are now being hypoctites and saying how they cant wait to buy this game. Not all 360 owners but just them fanboys, u know who u are changing accounts to write your BS. Same thing they were saying about FF13 before e3, saying it aint nuttin special, we got fable 2 that will be better and talkin down on FF13 and then when they hear it is coming to the 360 they are like yes I cant wait to play this game like they always liked it. That is what kills me as a huge fan of these games we grew up loving.

I have nothing against these games going to other platforms but to see people who never even play these games and arent fans of the games talk down on these games and then turn around and flip the script like they always liked the game when in reality they dont really give a sh**, they are just rubbing it in fans of these games faces, it is pretty hard to see those games going to a system where alot of there fanboys hated these games and always talked down on it before and now being hypocrites and saying how awesome it is to be on there system and they cant wait to play it. And this aint only FF13, I can come wit a list of a whole bunch of games, from DMC4, Virtua Fighter 4, FF13, GTA4, I can go on for ages.

I know it is a business thing and I would do the same if I were in these third party devs shoes but just for those reasons is what makes me sad to see these games go to another system. I know not every 360 owner is like this because I am also a 360 owner myself and that there are some ps3 fanboys who are vise versa and nintendo fans aswell but as a big fan growing up and loving these games on the ps1 and ps2 I do have reasons why I dont like a few of these titles going to other systems just for those facts I stated.

I just wish that third party devs can look at how us fans of there games feel when they put there games on another system, because it is us fans who stick up and argue against others who talk down on there games and it is us who made these games the success they have been today. I mean why couldnt they just make a brand new IP for that system and just make it exclusive? This way it doesnt hurt there fans and the fans for that system is happy and us fans for our franchise game being on our system are happy.

This is a reason why I give it up to Kojima because he remembers his fans and remembers who has always loved his games. I know im soundinding a bit fanboyish here but as a huge MGS fan and Solid Snake fan I am thankful for Kojima for ending Snakes Story in this awesome series because now I can accept it, if Kojima decides to bring out MGS5 onto other systems aswell, just for the mere fact that ending my favorite gaming icons story opens a new story to the series and what better way to continue the series but with a fresh start and a new hero. As a gamer I would be happy to see more people buy Kojimas games from there on out because I would want them to feel how us fans of the series felt and why we loved the series so much. Nothing better then seeing new fans come in and seeing there face amazed.

Well sorry for the long comment but hopefully u guys dont get me twisted for the reason I hate seeing a few of these games go to other systems but atleast im being real wit ya and all opinions and reply's are welcomed.

I completely agree with this statement. The only reason to put MGS4 on 360 is for Konami to make more money. I own both consoles so it doesn't matter to me. I'm all for MGS5 going multiplatform. Maybe do Raiden's story or something.
