Sony as you know has a strong line up of Playstation 3 exclusive series such as Killzone, LittleBigPlanet and Infamous, recently they have now been critizing platform exclusiveness and has “warned” that it limits the games’ marketing potential.
“When you make a title exclusive, you limit its promotional power; we don’t want to do that,” Sony brand manager Scott McCarthy said. “We want games to be as big as possible — it’s great for the industry. We work very closely with our [third party] publishers, not necessarily to lock down games exclusively, but to lock up exclusive parts of games.”
Sony feels the best way to go about it is release all the same games on every console but then have exclusive DLC. As multiplatform titles with platform exclusive DLC has been on the rise for a while now. The best examples include Xbox 360 exclusive Call of Duty and Fallout DLC as well as PlayStation 3’s exclusive Dante’s Inferno and Dead Space DLC. What do you think of all of this?
