He's talking shit and he knows it, that's why he spends two minutes asking people to "respect my opinion".
If you're getting funny feelings in your pants over exclusives, you are a fanboy. "I'm excited these people don't get to play the games I'm playing because they don't own the same plastic computer games player as me".
Exclusives ONLY benefit the console manufacturer, that's factually it. They have a library of exclusives so people buy their systems, 3rd parties then release games on it and pay the manufacturers licensing royalties which is where they make a lot of their money. None of this benefits the gamers.
His argument is incoherent. Just because we've been conditioned by greedy manufacturers to accept exclusives, what does that have to do with anything. It's irrelevant. In the past we would have also been conditioned to think women shouldn't vote and they should stay in the kitchen and rear children.
Businesses doing what is best for businesses isn't always what is best for consumers, hence "anti consumer".
"handing games to you" this guy is a moron, no, we pay all the same. What about this is entitlement?
How are his arguments this bad. His own analogies don't work in his favour. "lets have one movie studio" well there isn't, there also isn't exclusivity, everyone just bought media for their video or dvd player. How did that stifle creativity?
He's the one conflating emotions with facts. Whether I like something or not, it doesn't make something any more or less consumer friendly. Either it is or it is not. All the excuses he can come up with is not going to make exclusivity any more pro-consumer. I'm not crying about it, but it doesn't benefit me to have to buy a PS5 to play game x, when game x could just as well work on another similarly platform.
The games industry isn't just one way of doing things. Sega was able to still make money becoming multi platform, they just changed their business.
He just sounds like a shill, a pro corporate goon.
