At this point Xbox has no right to use the word exclusive to descride anything they make.

Yep, Ori and the Blind Forest is a great game but it was never an Xbox One exclusive to begin with, cause Ori is on Steam since 2015.

The word you are looking for is MS exclusive.

Rare replay is well suited to the switch I'm surprised it hasn't already been ported over. Ori was always going to go over and will sell better on the switch.

Excellent news. I'm happy I held off on buying this because it is a perfect game to play on the Switch.

I think console exclusive is still fair and makes sense- there's the big 3 Xbox, Playstation, and Nintendo. Ori was only on Xbox out of those 3. Now it's not.

I'm curious how that would work though. Rare Replay the game itself already takes up 11 GB, plus 38 GB to install all the 360 games (which are all required separate downloads). Switch cartridges max is 32 GB.

Fair enough I supposed. I own Ori on Steam, awesome game but not even gonna bother with Will of the Wisp.

I'm so glad that this is coming to the Switch, now PS4 owners who own a switch will get to enjoy such an awesome game. I'm hoping the sequel release on the Switch as well, so I don't have to use Steam , because I rather play it in handheld mode.

I don’t know what Microsoft is thinking. Are they simply going to turn in to an online market place and just stop supporting their consoles ? Or do they think people are choosing consoles for reasons other than access to unique games ?

Haven’t played the game myself but I heard that it’s an excellent game and from what I’ve seen on it does indeed look excellent. I’ll probably end up getting someday myself as I am definitely interested in it along with the upcoming sequel. Congrats to Switch owners.

lol 'console exclusive'

Well they probably get money for sales regardless of what platform. It just doesn't make much sense for them to treat Ori (a 4-year-old game) as an exclusive system seller at this point.

I think the notion of system-seller exclusives is more popular with 'hardcore' games (like those that participate in gaming forums). If a majority of people bought consoles for exclusive games then the attach rate for PS4 exclusives would be higher than ~10%.

Consoles are low-profit products anyway because most people just go for whatever is cheaper.

This is legit, I'll have to get this and Cuphead.

They were both rumoured back in February, along with Halo / Gears / Forza coming to Switch. Interesting times.

Rare Replay is and still my favorite Xbox One exclusive game to this day. Best game I ever enjoy coming from both Rare & MS.

I too hope it comes to Switch....so they can include Goldeneye, Diddy Kong Racing, and more that was missing from Rare/Nintendo.

Only problem is all those games add up to 50GB on Xbox One. I'm not sure how they would pull it off on Switch.

@drummerdave9099: Easy, put whatever they can or want on a card and have the rest downloadable. I don’t like this practice myself but other companies have done this so it is what it is.

Normally I would make fun of the xbox losing an exclusive but this game I'll make an exception , because its that good. Now I can't pick which metroidvania is the best (hollow knight or Ori)

Unlike what some people think, when a games been on a system long enough, like after a year, it isn't a huge deal to lose exclusivity. I'm surprised PS4 people don't understand this, since half their exclusives lose exclusivity after a year.

Goldeneye is a Bond licence thing I guess. Otherwise it would have come to the Xbox 360 with Perfect Dark on XBLA.

A remaster for the 360 (same as Perfect Dark) was pretty much completed. I heard that it was Nintendo's fault it didn't happen. I really don't think the Bond License is impossible.

Since Microsoft owns Rare, and Nintendo has some stake in this as well, they really should just shake hands and Nintendo gets to put Goldeneye on the N64 Classic when that finally becomes a thing, and Microsoft gets to release their 60fps remaster.

I agree with all of this, they should come together and sort out a definitive Rare Replay collection, and then release it on every platform so everyone can enjoy!
