Exclusives on XB1: What makes people believe MS will actually follow through?

Every game is going to be on ps now doesn't mean they aren't exclusives


Actually it does.


Those games are just as, if not more exclusive than Titanfall.

Honestly the way exclusive should be defined is belonging to the platform of one company or another. Such as with The Last of Us. It'll never be on an Xbox system, ever. Just like Gears of War 3 won't ever be on a Sony system.

I guess it isnt about "console exclusive" or whatever, it's "company exclusive"

Oh and for those arguing that you can use PSNow on Android/iOS when it releases? You'll still need the PSNow app, which is a qualifier for it still being on a Sony system.

By that logic, games on PC and 360/X1 are company exclusives, since you need a Windows OS to run the vast majority of them.

Microsoft invested over $1 billion in exclusives, twice as much as Sony.


This

Also seeing now that Phil Spencer has taken over Xbox and he promises games, games, and more games. We ain't got no worries.

The problem is with that idea, is you really DON'T need Windows to run them, since some versions of Linux will do just as good of a job of it, along with less overhead on the system processes freeing up more resources to run the game better than if you were using Windows.

Coming before too long will be Titanfall on Mac. That will remove company exclusivity, even though no one really games on Macs anyway.

And that's about the same amount of people that will be playing Sony games on their Android phones. Either it's an exclusive or not, this "company exclusive" stuff is nonsense. The whole point of touting an exclusive is that you can only find it on that system, so if you can find it somewhere else, same company or not, that selling point is gone. But if you really want to go that route, then all of those 360 games that were made by MS and also came out for PC are considered "company exclusives" too, and the 360 exclusive list just got a whole lot longer. Combine that potential with what X1 has already announced and we're back to the original point of this topic- X1 owners have nothing to worry about it terms of "exclusives".
