Do you have an instant system selling exlusive?

IE: A game that would cause you to run out and buy a console instantaneously, regardless of the existence of any other exclusives you cared about. Assume a console price of $399 USD.

For me, it would have to be Final Fantasy Tactics 2. A true sequel, on modern hardware, with improvements to the battle system, job system, and late game balance (looking at you calculators and Holy swordsman).

Edit: for the console fans, feel free to list a game which, if it existed on PC, you'd strongly consider buying/building at least a mid range PC just to play it.

Nothing.

I'd need at least 5+ games before I did that.

A DIY GTA game. Edit the map all you want however you want... go to town. It's the only DIY game I would ever love.

No, not for 1 game.

I need to know my investment will be supported past an initial purchase.

That being said, there are games that can make me pull the trigger earlier than others as long as I know I'm not getting a DOA system.

Definitely with you there, as long as the soundtrack is up to par with the original :)

I played the supposed "spiritual successor" I am Setsuna, and was turned off after 10-15 hours of nothing but what sounded like a possessed person hammering on a piano.

I need 3 games I want and I buy the console. Xbox One did it this generation while the ps4 and Switch have not.

Forza, Halo, Titanfall. While Halo and Titanfall weren’t launch titles, I knew they were coming so it made me confident to buy the system day One. The ps4 has no exclusives I’d buy and the Switch has one - Mario Odyssey. Next gen is shaping up to be similar.

Yeah they NEED to, but it wouldn't surprise me if they went the other way and went to say NZ.

Yes, but why name them, in the end I always get an Xbox, PlayStation, whatever Nintendo thingy, games that sell me really only change when I might get the console. Plus, as much as I might love a game, I'd ask myself would I buy that Google piece of shit to play it if the series went exclusive to it, and answer is no.

As for Xbox and Nintendo? There is nothing they could release for their next systems that would make me want to buy it right away.

Nahhh. Not for one game. For that kinda stuff I just wait and see if the console is worth it after a year and wait for price drops both on the console and the game.

Yep. Only bought an Original/360/One for Halo.

For Sony it would be God of War. I didn't play the first 2 but I played 3 when I got a ps4 and was hooked. Loved the both of them.

Only bought a switch for Zelda/MP, then gave it to my little one (almost 4) afterwards. She loves the thing and there's a lot of great games, she can play.

I've got a PC to save money in the long run on games but with gamepass/Denovo, I might just go back to console.

I'm interested in a switch for Pokemon and astral chain.

I brought a 360 for halo 3 and a PS3 for uncharted.

@vaidream45: Agreed. It usually takes 3-5 exclusives that interest me before I'll make the leap, typically several years into the console lifecycle. Except for FF Tactics 2 of course ;)

No, I haven’t for many years. Last game I can recall being a drop everything, rush out and buy what you need type of game was 2007’s Halo 3. After playing it the hype was clearly manufactured, but only a handful of games have had that kind of hype prior to release; most games collect the must-play hype after reviews start surfacing.

@Basinboy:

Thats why i bought a 360.........it ended up collecting dust.

Halo 2 created massive hype for the 3rd game.

@pyro1245: I second that. If there was a new Miyazaki Souls exclusive I'd get whatever console it was on day one.

Bought the Wii U for Super Mario 3D World and Wind Waker HD.

Bought the PS4 for Infamous Second Son.

Bought the 3DS XL for Fire Emblem Awakening.

Bought the Xbox One for Sunset Overdrive.

Got the Switch as a gift for Super Mario Odyssey.

Not anymore. PC is my go-to, but I keep consoles for exclusives... I can't think of anything that might make me go all-in.
