How would things change if MS made COD an XB1 exclusive?

My reaction:

"Oh well, no more COD for me, I'll have to find some other multiplayer game to amuse me."

Fewer copies of COD would be sold.

MS can't even afford Bungie. Gears of Wars is not that expensive compared to COD, even Titanfall is only exclusive to Xbox for the first game.

MS can't just buy and buy until there's no more profit lol


Don't be surprised if they snatch up titanfall for the rest of this generation, just because it hasn't happened yet. Either way since EA has announced that they will be alternating Battlefront, Battlefield, and Titanfall. You likely won't see TF2 for 3 more years. That's plenty of time for Microsoft to decide that they want Titanfall a permanent exclusive.

Xbox has history of abandoning their core gamers midway. See 360, all the great exclusives.. was eventually timed exclusives.

Well if they wanted to they could its not like they don't have the dough XD. It all would depend on Activision they know that most of their user base is on Xbox consoles, but are they willing to take the plunge?

CoD is a dead franchise so it would be in their worst interests.

It's funny the latest installment was called Ghosts because it was horrible beyond reason and surely marked the death of that awful series.
