I don't care that Sony owns the studio one whit. It is irrelevent. The point is that Sony have a vested interest in creating "exclusive" titles in order to sell consoles to idiots who normally would probably not buy one.
Under capitalism, that is their right.
What I don't get is all the useful idiots who go in to bat for them with stupid comments like yours, apparently in support of the idea that people should embrace this consumer hostile policy of creating exclusive titles when those same people would balk at the very idea for any other industry.
If you are not in the employ of Sony Corp then that behaviour is plain stupid.
We don't have cars that can only drive on certain brands of roads.
We don't have music that can be played on only certain brands of players*
We don't have movies that can be played on only certain brands of players*
We don't have TV that can only be watched on certain brands of TV's.
We don't have ovens that can only heat certain brands of food.
I could go on. You get the idea I'm sure.
But for the game industry, apparently, we should all just blindly accept this consumer hostile policy of creating "exclusive titles" because . . . . ?
Oh, that's right, because my brand rocks and the others suck donkey balls. Got it.
* Yes this has been tried before (ironically mainly by Sony) and it has failed because, quite rightly, consumers would not accept it.
