Publishers are doing this to make the most money. Higher risk nowadays with system exclusives.

The PS1 and PS2 squashed the competition so there was no need for multiplatforms. Sadly those days are gone. Playstation exclusives are a lost art.

Honestly who cares why not let them enjoy the games as well.

Difference between exclusive and owned. Want to keep a non owned property exclusive...guarantee more money..those days are over.
Now playing:Resident Evil 1&5, Bayonetta, MGS2HD Missions, Uncharted.

You do know that the Metal Gear franchise started on the MSX, which is a console partially developed by Microsoft right?

Besides, it was never a Playstation exclusive franchise anyway, it's only got two games that are actually exclusive to one Playstation console.

Third party exclusives did make gaming more interesting... I basically became a Sony / PS2 owner because of the Smackdown series.

It would be nice for it to continue more, but I don't blame developers for going cross platform. And it's not like there aren't any first party games worth buying out there... MLB The Show was a big factor in sticking with Sony for the PS3, and I love Uncharted, Sly Cooper, and Resistance among others.
