@adro191 You don't get it let me explain again. If they would make the consoles customisable and the games run on certain requirements the they wouldn't be consoles any longer but full fledged PCs just with different operating systems. Now to return to exclusives. Some people buy certain systems for certain games and some don't. However considering how could they are or their reputation those exclusives are a make or brake reason and maybe the reason of the final choice. If you'd have the chance to buy either a PS3 or Xbox 360 you would do research on which one suits you and offers the things you're looking for and also you'll search to see what awesome exclusives the consoles have to offer. Exclusives are just a marketing technique of the big companies to lure customers to buy their consoles. "if they dont want it on both consoles then its fine, its their loss really not mine." Let me correct you. It's your loss not theirs because if you don't want it it means you would've never bought it so they don't lose anything in the end considering you are not a potential customer. Plus exclusives are fun. They raise the value of a system.

@Darnasian Couldnt they improve the consoles to lure customers? i didnt buy PS3 just because God of War is exclusive there, and i wouldnt buy xbox just because Halo or Fable are exclusive there. if they dont want it on both consoles then its fine, its their loss really not mine. But i suppose the idea you're talking about is targeted for teens anyway, not adults.

@adro191 The justification of exclusives is pretty simple. Your argument is good and yeah they have less sales from exclusives but without exclusives what would be the point of owning a particular console and not the other?That's why exclusives exist. If you want to play a particular game you'll have to purchase the console it runs on and this is how console sales grow. Your God Of War 3 avatar shows to me that you should understand this.

Risen 2 should do until Diablo III comes out

I hate when they make games exclusive for one console only, i don't see a justified reason to it except hurting their sales figures.

@lorddaggeroff - Nope, you gotta play The Witcher 2 first before you compare it to something.

Starhawk would be awesome to have if they had it on the 360. But I'll probably get Prototype 2 and then wait for Borderlands 2 later this year.
