During Gamescom Rise of The Tomb Raider was revealed to be a timed exclusive. It seems that the industry is shifting towards trying to get timed exclusive content or exclusive in game content for their platforms. We saw this during the last generation with Call of Duty for the 360. But it does seem that this generation will put more emphasis on this.
In my humble opinion it seems that this is more of an annoyance to me than a good strategy. Being forced to wait just because of a deal between two companies is something that really irks me. I get that the reason they do this is to sell consoles and earn money. Because the bottom dollar is what really matters for a company. But you don't want to alienate a big part of your fans either.
It's a smart move from Microsoft, but a bad one from Square Enix. They have basicly let the two biggest user bases not buy their product on PC and PS4. Which isn't a good idea in my opinion.
Do you guys believe this is a good strategy from any company or platform to do?
