So can you provide us some examples of industry bigwigs using this term "console exclusive" or not, mr. zero? Don't leave us hanging. ):


Where are you, mr. zero? Still waiting on those no doubt numerous examples you have cooked up for us.

Anyone that thinks a game appearing on both Xbox One or PS4 and PC is an exclusive needs to learn what the word "exclusive" means. "Console exclusive" may be correct, but if it's on PC it's not exclusive.

Examples:
Titanfall
Project Spark
Dead Rising 3
Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare (now on PS4, too!)
Ryse Son of Rome

It's "Console Exclusive" if it's on PC as well.

If a game is on Xbox and PC, then it's an Xbox exclusive

Same goes for PS, Nintendo, whatever

You can play anything on a PC...


You can't play Uncharted, TLoU, Demon's Souls, GoW or any other Sony title on PC, because those are actually exclusive to Sony.

If you can play the game on one platform only then it's exclusive, otherwise no.


You can play God of War 1 and 2 on PC actually, along with pretty much every other PS2 game.


By emulating a PS2 and using a PS2 copy of the game, so you're practically playing it on a PS2. That's as silly as claiming that all the games on Wii's Virtual Console are Wii games.

Then no game is an exclusive since every can eventually be ported or emulated. That is why your argument is stupid. It ignores this funny thing called TIME.

True. That said I'd say there's a pretty big difference between six months and several years, and in the case of Titanfall it was available on PC since day one with the 360 version coming out a mere month later.

Then wht about Mass effect on 360 compare to TloU on ps3 for just 1 year?

Point is that if sony fanboys had a gaming pc they wouldnt need a ps4 to play diablo 3 an rogues legacy.

So while ps4 owners are waiting, xbox owners will be gaming. Being a multi console owner would really enlighten you to how sad the state of the ps4 truly is.

You need a ps4 AND a gaming pc to try and justify not getting an xbox one yet you still will be waiting.
