    Do you think exclusives will ever stop?

    Do tou think we will ever get to a point where games that are exlusive to 1 system, i.e. Uncharted for PS3, Halo for Dbox and take your pick from Nintendo, stop being exclusive?

    I am surprised that so many games come out exclusively for one system after thinking about how money hungry the cideo game industry is. It wouldn't surprise me if in a couple years all games are multi-platform instead of sticking to one console for so long.

    So long as there is more than one manufacturer making a console, there will always be exclusives.

    I believe it all depends on the popularity of the games and the fan base.

    Unless Nintendo stops making their own consoles, then I doubt you'll ever see any of their games on other systems.

    Exactly what I was thinking. Nintendo is the biggest example I know of when it comes to exclusives.

    It really depends on the relationship between the developers and publishers and Sony, Microsoft, and/or Nintendo. If a game becomes an exclusive, and then the next game of the series is not an exclusive, then there's a chance that the first game would be released for at least one other platform in some way, like a collection, somewhere in the future. This is true for Mass Effect am I correct?

    Let's see what happens in time.

    Is an exclusive no longer exclusive if you can play it on other systems?


    Take the uDraw game tablet it was popular for the Wii, with much success, so THQTHQ, makes one for XBox and PS3, and sales are weak, and they take a big hit, that it abandons the tablet further hurting the company as we are aware of their financial crisis.


    So on a game per game basis it depends, but their is many possibilities as gaming in a whole to see what's next wave of generations of gamers will demand as trends change.

    I hope not.

    Sony knows how to both nuture and respect developers, which fosters creativity and innovation.
    Microsoft milks the living shit out of everything that moves.

    This is why Sony has Uncharted (yes, I know there are five of them), Heavy Rain, LittleBIGplanet, Fl0w, Flower, Journey, The Unfinished Sawn, God of War, Twisted Metal, InFamous, Resistance, Gran Turismo, and Killzone, while Microsoft has Halo, Forza, Crackdown, Gears of War and Viva Piņata.
