Editorial: The Console War: Exclusivity

Gamertag Radio writes: "So we know that especially now, the console companies want to hold on to their exclusive titles. Those games are the ones that tend to put a console on the proverbial consumer map. Those are the games that you go out and by a system just to have.

Well thats easy, just look at exclusive rpg's (western if there is any and japanese) on the PS3 and exclusive sandbox games (Infamous comes to mind).

They arent "limited" by DVD but none of them come close to the scope or length of a 3 year old jrpg like Lost Odyssey or open world game like GTA4. Just to give a few examples.

You're just silly if you think infamous and GTA4 are comparable. Infamous is based off of comic art style and the entire game defines itself as such. Gta4 was also missing tons of content compared to its predecessors.

The limitation may not be a huge issue but, its an issue that is creating some very repetative games.

There was a war? I must have won because I have all 3?

Don't care. Have a 360. Buying a PS3 very soon. My little brother has a Wii which I can play on if need be too. As well as my gaming PC which I'm currently waiting for the shogun 2 demo on! :P

Hmm I'm pretty happy no matter the platform.
