Below is going to Steam. On the one hand, I'm glad because the more avenues the developer has to sell their product, the more money they'll generate from sales. On the other hand, X1 is short on exclusive indie titles right now, although hopefully that ID program will change things. Bastion, Fez and Limbo were some of my favorite games from last gen, among a plethora of other indies. It's almost come to the point where I play and enjoy "smaller" titles much more than the big budget AAA releases.

This is happening a lot on the XBOX ONE. Developers are embracing the leading platforms for the extra horsepower and bigger install bases. They gotta make money so I don't blame them.

To be fair though, TItanfall was originally going to be a PC exclusive till MS came around and gave them a truckload of money and take care of hosting a server.

Below was always just a timed exclusive. All this changes is that they might now release on the same day rather than the Steam release happening a little after the Xbox One release.

Oh my god he is right, the sky is falling!!! Oh wait. Most of the announced PS4 games do not have release dates. Microsoft is announcing new studios and new exclusives at E3 and Sony is rereleasing a game that is less than a year old.

I am wlling to admit that Sony will be announcing new games at E3 as well. Just remember last year when all we heard from Sony after E3 was, " wait until Pax, wait until comicon, wait for the Tokyo game show...." Last years' games like Uncharted 4 are still in early production and the excuses have grown old.
