Rockstar's new franchise ps3 exlusive - Page 2

post #11 of 23
Thread Starter 
i agree somewhat. I dont think there would be much competition between systems then if the games were coded for both. You wouldnt get the halos or the mgs4 i dont think. And they wouldnt be as nice. The exclusives are what gives a console its glory and makes the other console do something to match it. ITs awsome yet sucks at the same time. Just own both. even if your 13 if you mowed lawns all summer you could make enough money to buy both.

Sony probably paid Rockstar a load of cash to keep the game on the PS3 only. It would be a good deal from Rockstar's point of view if the money value was greater than their expectations of making money on the 360 or Wii. If I was in Rockstar's position I would do the same thing.

Maybe some studios do not want to spend time making their game for all the systems because it takes more time than specializing on one system. I kind of like the idea of exclusive games because it encourages the game makers to specialize on one platform and focus better.

i dont think sony paid them loads of cash becuase that was one of the reasons they didnt get the gta content cause they didnt wan to have to pay a premium for it. And i agree with exclusives making games all they can be.

Don't call it not fair. Sony got the exclusivity deal on GTA because they were able to have the foresight to determine how great a series it would be. That started back with GTA II. MS never had a chance at the time, because they didn't have a console at the time.

Why don't they release a Mario game on the Playstation then?

Exclusive titles are as old as consoles themselves. It's the way it is and will always be. They are what essentially differentiate the consoles.

From my prospective the PS3 is in trouble if they can't cut manufacturing costs by ALLOT because so many just won't buy a 600 dollar console. I am one of those and no amount of exclusive games will change that.

We should have Gears of War on the PS3 and Metal Gear on the 360.

That way game developers and publishers would make at least the same amount of money if not more and we could just choose which system we like better, and not have to by a high-failure-rate 360 because of Halo 3 or a way overpriced PS3 because of Metal Gear.
We should also have Halo and Forza as well as the Conker franchise on Sony, but that way, nobody would buy Xbox at all.

Actually, if you can cut your budget for 800$ to build a kinda good gaming rig, then you should be able to spend them on a console almost equal to a 8800GTX rig, it is totally worth the money. I wonder if it will ever drop to a humiliating price of $150 like the PS2, but I would be hella happy

I believe they are cutting costs pretty well. Also it is most likely we will see a price drop of the 80gb when the 60gb is gone or around the holidays. The ps3 is gonna get more and more affordable to those who cant spend that much on a console. Now i dont really understand that concept cause i know somone who mowed lawns for two months and bought a ps3. He was 12. So the its to expensive for some people confuses me lol.

I think the whole price thing bothers people for the simple fact that a console has never cost that much before. I know we like change in technology but we as consumers dont like changes in price when they get more expensive. The only thing i can see as a problem was them not offering different models that had less features for cheaper. But then again having one sku allows them to manufacture more efficiently and probably cheaper.

Also apparently the only reason xbox360 was allowed to have the exclusive content was becuase sony agreed with the publisher that its next franchise would be ps3 exclusive.

I can't imagine what the next series will be. Maybe it'll be manhunt, or did they say it was totally brand new?
