One of the better/only(?) 360 exclusives of last year, BattleBlock Theater has done the inevitable jump to PC/steam. Great news for anyone who loves Behemoth games!

http://www.battleblocktheater.com/ It's coming May 15th.

I thought this had already happened.

Never played it though. I don't feel too inclined.

Same here, especially with summer just around the corner. Really excited for it though. Loved Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers.

Poor Lems. Even after last gen ended, they're still losing exclusives.

They already lost Below to the PC this generation which is awesome news for me.

I bought it in when it was on sale on XBL for a few bucks some weeks ago and just played a bit today, it's pretty fun, but not as fun as Alien Hominid or Castle Crashers.

I do. Games made by smaller teams tend to excite me more than the titans of the industry now a days. I'm sure plenty of people feel the same way which is why I posted this news.

Never understand the obsession with every exclusive having to remain exclusive. If anyone with a 360 wanted to play this chances are they have already. And I doubt anyone was buying a 360 for this game.

Everyone knows m$ really doesn't have exclusives. They just have a 6 month exclusive window.

Pro-tip: buy a PS4 if you want exclusives for the upcoming gen.

"Exclusives" suck . It is not something to be proud of , feels like dictatorship . I play on PC and PC got more exclusives than any console , still I think that more people should be able to play them as long as the game is not dumbed down for the masses . I know there are games that sell systems but game from a 3rd party studio should never be exclusive .

@ Cloud_imperium

Yes ! oh god Yes ! ! !

I can't tell you how much this has bothered me anytime a game goes exclusive but there isn't a single Microsoft/Soft/Nintendo Logo to be found on the product.... As if the publisher decided to screw themselves over ! Everybody should be able to play ! After all they're all computers underneath right ?

A friend actually cracked his Xbox 360 and now he can play Nintendo 64 games on an emulator.... On his XBox ! :D Lucky Bastard ! And people look down on Piracy ! Well Pirates don't care.... They're too busy NOT getting screwed over !

Plenty? On a gaming forum? I'd say some...not plenty. Gaming forums tend to have more invested gamers that want more than smart phone/tablet games.

well at the moment, it has better library than X1 and PS4 combined, so.... also, Dark Souls 2 alone > anything on new consoles.

@RR360DD: Which PS3 exclusives are being lost? I don't think ports from PS3 to PS4 is exactly the same as MS consoles to Steam if you're talking about The Last of Us being ported.

Its exactly the same.

Not on one platform anymore, therefore no longer exclusive. Simple as that.

Smaller developer teams don't just work on Smart Phone/Tablet games. Lots of people on forums are excited for independent endeavors on the PS4/XboxOne/PC. Heck there's not much to look forward to on the Xbox One or PS4 if you're looking at just games with exorbitant budgets. I think the emphasis Sony placed on smaller independent teams the past couple of years shows the shift in trends.

Yes strictly using the term exclusive it's no longer one anymore, but you're sort of distorting the gravity of Sony's 'loss of exclusive content,' compared to the numerous amount of games that were timed exclusives on the 360.

The definition of a fanboy comment.

The console still has exclusives and even if games aren't or are no longer exclusive, they're still games. Someone would have to be a spoilt brat to stop enjoying a console for that reason.

Especially considering how disappointing the PS4 and X1 are so far. Few games, mostly shit graphics and poor frame rate with anything that even resembles good graphics.
