What does exclusive mean for the game producer / game developer relationship? If it is a Sony exclusive, does Sony have the ability to tell the game developers what they want in/out of the game? Does Sony fund some of the game so they can call it exclusive? How much control does the producer have over the developer?

Imagine this;

Its your money dev is using, it depends on how much freedom or control you want to give to devs. You can tell them what you want in a product or you trust them for the creative output.
