Exclusives: The Next Great Extinction?

While Microsoft finally ensured that used games and offline play will live to see another generation from all fronts, are platform-exclusive games the next gaming staple to die out? Gamers Association editor Curtis Stone sure thinks so, and is getting pretty tired of the evolution to "timed exclusives" at that.

Exclusives (3rd party AAA ones, at least) have been going extinct for a while. That's why I gravitate towards the companies that put out a lot of 1st-party exclusives over the full life of their system.

Why o why1948d ago

Yeah. I also gravitate to whomsoever is the most consistent in meeting my gaming needs. I'll leave it at that

The author asks for boycotting exclusives lol
Exclusives are the main reason I buy a PS4 and will someday buy a WiiU. If Sony and Nintendo wouldn't have so good first party games I would only play on PC.

Exclusives is still relevant. If Xbox1 didn't have the exclusives that I want to play like Forza, killer Instinct, Titanfall, Dead Rising, Ryse, Project Spark and Quantum Break in the beginning, I would of no doubt went with the PS4. It was a smart move in MS part to get these games out in the beginning.

They will throw money around to get some exclusives through the early life of the Xbox One to get gamers who will buy a new console day 1 to buy it rather than a PS4. Exactly what happened with the 360. I really have no faith in them having good exclusives 2 or 3 years down the line.

I am also planning to get a PS4 next year when the franchises like Uncharted, God of War, Gran Turismo and other great exclusives get release. I have no allegiance to any system, just PS4 don't have the exclusives that I want to play in the beginning. If a Metroid, Zelda and a sequel to Xenoblade Chronicles are on Wii U, I'll get that system to.

Got to love fanboys that turn every topic into a chance to take a shot at a certain company
I plan on getting both funny cause i haven't seen a system seller yet
Ps4 had infamous but infamous is not a I have to have that system type of game
MS had a few goods ones also but nothing that would push a system honestly the tv thing would push more systems to the mass market them any game will
I saw a lot of good games at e3 but not system pushers

1st party exclusives are key 3rd party exclusives need to die fast

3rd party exclusives not always the best games.
