Microsoft Xbox One quote from May 2013 "We purposefully did not target the highest end graphics. We targeted it more as a broad entertainment player."

He's right that exclusives help with sales, but stealing multiplatform games away to make them exclusive is the exact opposite of what he's supposed to be doing.

Exclusives bring in sales because they're often different from the regular multiplatform games.
Simply throwing money at a third party studio for a timed exclusive instead of actually putting in some effort and making your own IP is pathetic and will have the opposite effect.

Why bother creating anything when you can just throw money around?

You'd hope so, when a cheap mid-range PC can outclass both PS4 and XB1 in multiplats. Money hatting developers, stealing exclusive content for their console is a stupid practice and those responsible for it should be hung. #PCMastaRace

All they did was pay for timed exclusivity just like what Sony does all the time. Doesn't matter if it is a multiplatform game.

Could you provide us with the list of games that came out PS4 then eventually came out on other consoles later on? Must be a mighty big list!

You defended xb1 to death.
Now you "sold" it & "switched" as a PC gamer.

Seeing people get upset that Microsoft is 'stealing' multiplatform games is hilarious. It's a timed exclusive so chill. You'll play it eventually, after everyone else has.

I never said anything about ps4. I said Sony, as far as I know the ps4 isn't the only console Sony has made.
