Devil May Cry needs to go back to being a Playstation Exclusive. It was one of our best ones with the first three and making it DMC 4 a cross platform made us loose that. I do own both systems and a custom pc so im not just being a PS fanboy. But anyways who else agrees on that?

The idea that people want to see games exclusive to one system is so pathetic. Who cares if it isn't exclusive anymore. More people get to play it.
Its like being upset about the neighbor kid getting a new bike because you have one.

You're right, it is a competition. A competition between the developers, publishers, and other big businesses but not the consumers. We're the ones who need to decide which console to buy and because of that, we're torn between good games. This competition has people paying more money than they want on different consoles just to enjoy themselves.

Exclusives are just a reason to own one system over another. Gamers aren't single platform people. Most of us have to buy consoles we don't even want just to play exclusive titles.

The thing about being a PS3 exclusive is that programmers are less worried about the size of the game, which potentially makes it longer or more data intense (not necessarily "better"). When a game is made with the thought of PS3 exclusivity and then becomes cross platform you run into problems, like with Final Fantasy XIII, which is 1 disc on the PS3, but 3 for the XBox 360 because it was a late production decision... Final Fantasy XIII-2 on the other hand is 1 disc on both, as it was designed from the get go to be cross platform, and is thus noticeably shorter in terms of total content. That said, this point of the exclusive issue has only existed during this last generation of consoles. For all others, your analysis is spot on... exclusives were just there to lure gamers to one system or the other.

because without exclusives in the future ......everyone would own just one console. Which sounds good on paper but no completion is bad for consumers!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The only time I get really bothered by cross-platforms is when it's made for PC and the consoles at the same time; usually means the PC version gets dialed down graphics and gameplay as a whole. I don't think that gaming on the PC is the best way, but computers get updated constantly and are powerhouses. The consoles start off strong when they're first released (or at least with their second, slimmer versions) but only get significant updates (a new console) every few years.
However, I still don't mind that much. Especially since the upside to a console is you know that almost any game made for it will work on it, you don't get that guarantee with a PC.
I think Thomas Parry has a great point and I didn't realize the Ps3 discs could hold so much more than the 360 discs. New variable to consider.

While Tomas Parry is correct .. there is also the resolution at which the PS3 can handle that the xbox currently cannot. It's easy in our minds to simply say :"Why don't they put it on all gaming platforms!" Well, there is extra costs, manufacturing, licenses and normally for systems with less resources they have to tremendous reduce, remove and chop up parts of the game. Some games are just better off on certain consoles.

This right here is the winning comment!

Competition means more products--more products means more money--more money means better economy. Believe it or not, the gaming market is a very large part of the economy--in fact, if the gaming market went away, the United States would crumble soon after.

There is a reason why monopolies are illegal.

But regardless--if everything did go multi-platform, then there would only be one system. If there was only one system there would be less cash for developers, and less cash for developers means lousy games.

It has now turned into a catch 22. Go Multi to make more money, but then lose money in the long run, or stay exclusive and watch others make more money.

Thankfully, most developers are in it for the creativity and creation, and not so much the money (unlike one-game-a-year companies). Developers like naughty dog are what keeps my faith high in future good games.

that is the winning comment and proves my point, when you start to cross platform everything there's no competition and no reason to have more than one console.
