I buy used games as often as possible, so every game is a "timed exclusive" to me.
If I support the game company, then I won't be supporting the blank DVD business.

It only works on impatient people. The rest just think the company doing it is a dick.

Uhm, no. That makes no sense and you're horribly butchering what timed exclusive means. It does not mean a game available on multiple platforms but you didn't buy it yet, so just stop it now. Never make this claim again.

Personally, I don't care about them at all, one way or the other.

In our current state of gaming, any given video game is only relevant for a year or two anyway.


Year or two? Most lose relevance after 2 months.

Sony didnt pay for most of those to be exclusive, capcom se and konami simply werent making games for xbox because it was new.
Sony promised 30 first year exclusives for ps4 first year. Too bad they are mostly indy titles.

Meat-heads who need CoD maps a month earlier care about timed exclusivity. Everyone else realizes you'll get the same product (and sometimes more) by waiting.
