sonys 15 first party studios say hi

dirigiblebill3074d ago

One thing and one thing only separates a first party from a third party studio: time.

tdrules3074d ago

and making them only work on one platform starves other platforms, which the article is about.

good on Sony though, best group of first party studios on any platform right now.

Why would Sony want to feed the other consoles? Especially after all the nonsense one of them is always spouting.

raztad3074d ago (Edited 3074d ago )

The article is not only about game exclusivity but IDEAS, tech. For example, DI cloning GoW, Move replicating Wii controller experience, Lips following Singstar steps. The list can go on and on, PSN and XBL, Miis and MS avatars, Natal and Eye Toy, etc etc. IDEAs when successful dont take long to be replicated.

So exclusives are the root of all fanboy evil ??? good to know

good read by the way

silvacrest3074d ago

lol i always thought money was a big factor too, i guess im wrong


Yeah, its not really the route to take for a 3rd party dev/pub. There probably isn't a handful of 3rd parties that are actually successful making a game exclusive.

"Exclusivity doesn't exist"

Right, so OMGOW3 is not a PS3 Exclusive?

"but it's still ruining gaming"

Why? LBP+UC+KZ2+UC2+GOW3++++ Are Awesome... Ah this Article is So Pointless

I thought the article was okay until he completely absolved the media for flamebaiting. I understand that they are doing what is good for business and that readers feed it but what happened to integrity?

Like a drug dealer saying he sells crack because that is what people want. If you know it is harmful and you participate then you are responsible.

These comments are funny. I dont think most of the commenters realize that they are stamping "I didn't read the article and commented" on their foreheads.

Basically what this article is saying is that nothing is truly exclusive because there's a similar thing like Natal v Eyetoy, Move v Wii, Singstar v Lips.
