Sony's Lost Exclusives


Recommended Posts

I think it's because MS's systems are much cheaper and easier to get into the hands of the consumers.

The idea of exclusive games is idiotic anyway. The more platforms you release a game for, the bigger the sales.

DISCLAIMER: Do not take what I write seriously unless it is clearly and in no uncertain terms, declared by me to be meant in a serious and non-humoristic manner. If there is no clear indication, asume the post is written in jest. This notification is meant very seriously and its purpouse is to avoid misunderstandings and the consequences thereof. Furthermore; I can not be held accountable for anything I write on these forums since the idea of taking serious responsability for my unserious actions, is an oxymoron in itself.

 

Important: as the following sentence contains many naughty words I warn you not to read it under any circumstances; botty, knickers, wee, erogenous zone, psychiatrist, clitoris, stockings, bosom, poetry reading, dentist, fellatio and the department of agriculture.

The banter back and forth afterwards is priceless

People laugh when I say that I think a jellyfish is one of the most beautiful things in the world. What they don't understand is, I mean a jellyfish with long, blond hair.

Yes, but if the developer gets a bucketload of money from the console maker just for the exclusiveness, it kind of offsets the fewer sales problem. Especially, if the other consoles are selling like ass (as in PS2 vs Gamecube/Xbox.)

So why does it seem that Sony is digging its own grave? I suppose one reason they didn't sign exclusive deals with some of the companies in question is because they were confident of their system's competitiveness in the multi-platform market and didn't want to spend the extra $$$, but is that really wise? Still, one can't criticize a trend towards multi-platform games too much.

There are doors

Exactly. MGS 3 wasn't multiplatform because of poor sales of MGS2: Subsistence on Xbox.

Only reason for me to get PS3 is Blu-Ray which is really beating HD-DVD currently. Stupid Microsoft, why did they choose it... Even porn industry is no good against current onslaught! ;)

Necrophilia aside, i liked Fahrenheit. Heavy Rain seems to be the step in the right direction as well--->Necrophilia in HD!

David Cage is some wannabe director that thinks all gamers are secretly necrophiliacs. Most of us are, but that's still pretty pretentious.

Wannabe director or not, he doesn't flow with the waves, he has it's own idea where "interactive entertainment" (note he doesn't like to use the term "games") should go. At least we won't get another shallow "oh I've seen that 1000times before" game from him. The industry needs more brave men like him, and less necrophiliacs like Llyranor! Yes.

Sometimesthe guys not going with the flow are just using a different stream than you think. So many people got excited about Indigo Prophecy like it was something new and revolutionary.

 

I think they've just never played an adventure game before. About all he did was introduce movie-style cinematography into an adventure game.

Yep, I still think Sanitarium is the better storyline adventure game.

Agreed, if I want to play mop the floor minigames with groovy camera angles then i'm better off mopping the floor of my kitchen. Maybe then i'd stop getting explosive diarrhea.

I still have fond memories of combining the tufts of sasquatch hair with the collected tar, the suit, and my partner.
