I buy used games as often as possible, so every game is a "timed exclusive" to me.

It only works on impatient people. The rest just think the company doing it is a dick.

Uhm, no. That makes no sense and you're horribly butchering what timed exclusive means. It does not mean a game available on multiple platforms but you didn't buy it yet, so just stop it now. Never make this claim again.

Personally, I don't care about them at all, one way or the other.

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


Year or two? Most lose relevance after 2 months.

Sony promised 30 first year exclusives for ps4 first year. Too bad they are mostly indy titles.

Meat-heads who need CoD maps a month earlier care about timed exclusivity. Everyone else realizes you'll get the same product (and sometimes more) by waiting.
