"Exclusives are what give the hardware their identity," SOCOM: Special Forces lead designer Travis Steiner has told VideoGamer.com.
The Zipper Interactive man feels that without exclusives things would be rather generic.
"Exclusives are what give the hardware their identity," Steiner said. "It's the brands, right? Ultimately hardware is important, but the hardware developers and the brands - PlayStation, or the other ones - are really defined by the exclusive titles. Without that, everything would be lost in a sea of... being generic, if you will."
