Sorry, didn't see your message. Honestly, to me at least, that's not really the case. Regardless of what you or I like on one system or the other..the pure fact that Sony has dominated MS with their high quality exclusives while MS just loses theirs...is an issue in my mind. I'm not saying that MS doesn't have amazing exclusives, because they do...i'm saying they don't have enough of them.
And while I buy most of all the PS3/360 exclusives to come out...I have to say that it's disappointing that MS, when they started out so strong to begin with, barely has any exclusives left to call their own. Hell, look at the third party developers that were developing exclusively for MS...Valve puts out portal 2 and everything about it is better on PS3. Epic has started putting out a lot of PS3 games and has even discussed their want to bring Gears to the PS3. Bioware went multiplatform..bungie went multiplatform..Right there, that's every big developer that MS had under their belt. You might not see that as a problem...But I can't help but find it disturbing.
Especially when they barely utilize the first party dev's that they do have. Rare...they canceled the one good looking game that was coming from them in Kameo 2...Check out the concept art that from that, it's on CVG, it looked amazing. 343 Industries might be up to something good, but will they be as good as bungie? Time will tell...Turn 10 is doing a great job with Forza, for sure...I loved Forza 3...GT5 is still my favorite sim racer, but F3 came pretty close..i'm hoping F4 will take the throne for that. So yeah, i mean, i look at that and I see an issue. Because honestly, if the 360 loses all it's exclusives..there isn't a reason to own it. It's the same problem that Sony had when they first brought the console out..they didn't have anything worth owning the system for, outside of a couple of games, that were any good...or that you couldn't find on the 360. SO what was the point? There wasn't one for me until 2008. MS still have enough to make it worth the purchase and i love my 360...but if they lose Gears, if they lose L4D, and some of their other games...well, what's the point? Which is why i'm so adamant that they start picking up the exclusives.
