The official Xbox twitter page oddly tweeted out an image saying some huge third-party games are Xbox One exclusives. Thatís kind of misleading.

The tweet showed images of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Sunset Overdrive, Assassinís Creed Unity, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Forza Horizon 2 and Evolve. Out of the games listed, only three of them are Xbox One exclusives. If you want to get technical, only Sunset Overdrive is a real Xbox One exclusive. Forza Horizon 2 is getting an Xbox 360 version. Halo: The Master Chief Collection is a remake that contains old Halo games. Itís an Xbox One exclusive sure, but the older games were released for the Xbox and Xbox 360 too.

The official Xbox twitter page shouldnít have misled people into thinking all of these games are Xbox One exclusives. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is also coming to Xbox 360, PC, PS4 and PS3. Assassinís Creed Unity is coming to PC and PS4. As for Evolve, that game is coming out on PC and PS4 too.

Itís worth mentioning many people saw this marketing blunder and Xbox deleted the original tweet. Kotaku managed to grab a screenshot of the original blunder. All in all, most of these games are not Xbox One exclusives. Activision, 2K and Ubisoft didnít sell all their games to be Xbox One exclusives.

Remember MGSV being an exclusive?
It's not a blunder they do it on purpose. Spew enough lies and somebody will believe them.

Sony isnt marketing it as exclusive...there is a clear difference with how sony is marketing destiny and microsoft is marketing those games. Difference being, Sony is marketing specific exclusive content.
