Timed exclusives are a huge deal! People act like it's a bad strategy.

It is a bad strategy...preying on the people who can't wait because they fiend for a hobby, just perpetuates the cycle. Same as people paying $70 to play a game on PS3 because they can't wait one week to play it on PS4 for $60

"Microsoft demands simultaneous multiplatform releases" - Type that into your search bar and you'll see why you should buy Rayman on Wii U, not ports.

They work... but they're still evil.

In our current state of gaming, any given video game is only relevant for a year or two anyway.

It makes them look as "honorable" as Big Tobacco.

It depends on what you mean by timed exclusives...

Timed DLC is just stupid IMO and usually makes me just not buy for either console. Timed games 6 months or longer are a much better investment...but frankly I'm not a big fan of this tactic either because it artificially gives an advantage to one console over another because the company paid for it. Full on exclusives are the way to go end of story.

Because companies don't pay for that either?
