I've not done this yet, but thought about it a lot.
Very nearly bought an Xbox One when Rise of Tomb Raider was timed exclusive, happy I was patient and waited for PC version now.
Tempted to get a Ps4 for Bloodbourne, I love souls like games that FROM make, Bloodbourne is the only one I have not played. Its looks unlikely it will be released elsewhere. With the Ps4 also releasing Nioh(looks excellent) and Horizon looks good too, there might be enough of a reason for me to take the plunge.
I got xbox one s 2 tb because I love halo and gears of war series. (I played on good old x360 till summer 2016).
Then on christmas I got the ps4 pro as aa gift and now I have more exclusives on my play list :)
Going to buy nintenfo switch so lets just say nothing is out of my options xD
I think in a way we all kind of do this, because we all have those games that are kind of our favorites, or ones that really stick out in our mind, or the ones we spent the most time playing on the system at least. It might not necessarily be the very first game we bought the system for...but sometimes that initial purchase does end up becoming a standout benchmark title for us.
Some people might not buy a system brand new, but they might buy the system a bit down the road when some other really big title is coming out for it. There are probably people who were convinced to buy a 360/PS3 or whatever because the newest GTA game came out for it. Hey, if it's an established franchise and the new one looks great, then that's guaranteed fun. Then there are those rare games that come along and are so different from everything else, that manage to move systems. That isn't as common, but it has happened before. I think Halo is kind of an example of that, as is Super Mario 64.
With the Switch's launch, I think I am every bit as much interested in the system itself as I am what seems to be the best Zelda game yet. It's guaranteed fun. And I mean, it's also an investment for me as it would be for most people, because I am pretty sure there are other games coming out this year alone that I'll want to keep an eye on.
When I was younger I would. I bought a ps2 just to play FFX and an OG xbox just to play the old republic. (Both where "exclusive" at the time)
Today, I'm different because to be honest, they're is too much media, and I find myself with less time to blow as I get older. That one exclusive looks really cool on that system, but the world won't die if I don't play it. Plus, if it is something special that can't be missed, you can be sure that it will be remastered or re-released at some point down the road.
Consoles are damn expensive; I'm still gaming on an Xbox 360 but decided on finally getting an Xbox One S after my next paycheck comes in. Still, $600 for a console JUST to get an exclusive game is ridiculous, though it also depends on the game and if you're using the console for other games too. I don't understand people who have both an Xbox One X and PS4 Pro.
