Am I the only one sick and tired of hearing about X-box 360 exclusives?
1) video game companies should stop giving in to microsoft paying them to bring exclusive stuff to the table. they alienate ps3 fans towards their games.
2) microsoft should be spending money making a console that doesn't break instead of doing things like this (not trying to be a fanboy of ps3, my best friends xbox360 died in less than 6 months and thats my fair personal experience), random extras like this could never really be the deciding factor in choosing the xbox360 console so it serves no grand purpose.
3) sony should realize their acceptance of 2nd place pisses off every single person who spent money on their console. Time and time again we get to watch xbox360 fans get extra material, "better playing" games, while Sony does nothing but complain about how hard it is to make a profit off the console. They should be paying just as much as Microsoft on these kind of things to PREVENT exclusives, or GARNER them for US.
Can we just get over this stupid console war and just release 3rd party games that are exactly the same on both systems without restriction or exclusivity? Until that occurs, you're just pissing off one crowd or another. I don't mind if Ps3 isn't #1 in sales, but I'm tired of feeling like a 2nd class citizen time and time again in regards to games I like not being released on ps3, games I like having more content or betas on x-box360, etc.
