Exclusive Games…. Do they still matter?

28 03 2007

Recently, G4’s attack of the show had a segment on The Loop talking about the relevancy of exclusive games on current gen consoles. The latest IGN games podcast also tackles this topic. With the news that Devil May Cry 4 is no longer a PS3 exclusive, it got us wondering: do exclusive games still matter? Do they still sell systems? Without exclusives, is there enough to differentiate one console from another? What do all of you think? Do exclusive games matter as much as they used to and why?

I think they do matter. I may not have bought a 360 if Halo 3 wasn’t going to be exclusive to it.

They do matter. Think about how many people bought a xbox 360 because of Gears of War. Also think about what makes the Wii if Super Mario was on every other console. Exclusives do still matter. Of course competitors will try to downplay their weaknesses.
