why does microsoft have a harder time getting exclusive developer deals?

#1NightMareBunnyPosted 12/8/2013 2:18:56 PM
Sony Has It's Own Legit Workforce(Like Sucker Punch And Naughty Dog For Example)While Microsoft for whatever reason can't seem to convince many major developers to sign exclusively with them....

is there any reason for that?

i always wondered why people did sign such things

why limit yourself to one console when you can sell on more than one

Who else after Sucker Punch and Naughty Dog? I would have said Insomniac, but they are actually making their next game for the Xbox One aren't they?

if the games were only on one system why not make it official?
it gives said system a good hook when you have certain developers working for you and you alone

Not only that but in the other thread I listed several examples of exclusive console content and there are games for the Xbox that are permanent exclusives.

Those companies haven't signed exclusive deals, they are literally owned by Sony. So of course they're only going to make games for Sony platforms.

It's no different than Rare or 343 are companies owned by Microsoft.
