Same game title, two completely different games.


Why would ANYONE think that this would be/was a GOOD thing? That not only do you need to have multiple consoles for the occasional system exclusive, but also to ensure that you didn't get the crap version of a game?


If each console didn't have at least some exclusives, then what's the point of having three (or even two) consoles?

Okay, I get it now.

One more question:

You had to live during that time frame to appreciate said examples.
Kids these days don't understand,.

that was when developers actually put effort into their games



Effort to... make sure that people with one console and not the other could get a greatly reduced experience from what should be the exact same game?

Effort expended in the completely wrong direction is not better than not putting in an effort at all.

^Not ignorance at all. The topic title really would have been better worded differently.

These days are not gone..

Batman: Arkham City - Armored Edition
Need for Speed: Most Wanted U
Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge
Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Wii U Edition
Trine 2: Director's Cut

All multi-platform, but Wii U versions are different enough to be unique.
