Those games – Metal Gear Solid 5 and Killzone 4 – would be massive draws for whichever console they appear on, but some of the comments (on the former story at least) question if there’s still a place for console platform exclusives?
Ignore Killzone – that’s clearly (if it even exists) going to be PlayStation based. But MGS is totally up in the air. Normally regarded as a PlayStation platform brand (perhaps slightly ignorantly) some commenters wanted a sequel to be PS3 exclusive.
We’re not so sure – the notion that having a game out on 360 doesn’t necessarily mean compromise – many multiplatform games run just fine on both.
And then there’s the thought that surely it’s best (financially at least) so get as many people playing your game as possible? If the game needs to fit on a couple of DVDs and thus lose some fidelity across the board, will Joe Public really notice?
What are your thoughts?
