I gotta say that exclusives (other than ones that can't be done on other hardware) are stupid and I fully support everyone being able to play whatever they want on whatever platform they want. Being happy that you have something because someone else doesn't have it is pretty much evil. Maybe one day your heart will grow three sizes Mr Grinch.

this would be the perfect world.

If the idea alone of having a game that other people are unable to play makes you happy, then you're kind of petty.
A pc's brain is the cpu, its heart is the motherboard, its stomach is the hard drive, and its anus is the user.

true, exclusives is where consoles shined before and is still where they're shining right now. simplicity is nice too though. anyways, hope we get more console exclusives going forth. it is kind of annoying to buy a console for 1 or 2 exclusives.

again, there's no reason as a grown adult male that that should be "refreshing" for you.

Exclusives are artificial and the reason they have them is to draw people to the platform because as you say, without them they're nothing. I don't blame Nintendo for not making their first party titles available on other platforms, but I personally think it sucks when a company pays another company to keep its products from being for sale in certain areas, certain platforms or to certain people.

The vast majority of PC exclusives are exclusive because it doesn't work on consoles, not because someone paid the developer to keep it off of consoles. There may be a few indie games that aren't on consoles because the developer doesn't have the resources to make a console version, but any game popular enough to be desired for other platforms usually has the resources if they choose to invest in it.

Anyway, the only people that benefit from exclusives are the people who paid to keep it exclusive and the people who feel the need to antagonize others with "nanny nanny boo boo, I have something you don't have!". I don't think it really benefits the people being paid to stay exclusive (unless they had no intentions of porting it and then it's just being paid to do what you were going to do anyway).

I can't wait for the next wave of trolls to come in and say nasty things about PC which will most likely be fueled by someone taunting someone else over exclusives. :P

This isn't the first time.

There was a large outcry originally when the developers of Xcom mentioned that they were focusing on the PC version of Xcom 2. They got their console version (and probably would have even without the petition) but at first they were mad.

It's possible that the whole thing was a publicity stunt. I wouldn't put it past them (because like I said, it was more likely they just wanted to do the PC version FIRST) but I don't know anything for sure.

https://www.ipetitions.com/petition/xcom24ps4

There's one petition (I think there's another)
https://forums.2k.com/showthread.php?4122121-The-Official-Unofficial-XCOM-2-for-Consoles-Petition-Thread

There's another.

Can't find the twitter announcement where they said it was PC exclusive and a bunch of angry console owners yelled at them, but I remember it happened.
