Let’s face it; exclusivity is now starting to become a thing of the past with the Xbox 360 receiving some PS3 exclusives and some Xbox 360 exclusives going to PS3. Multiplatforming is in now since its an easier way to save face from declaring bankruptcy. Of course, even some have to admit that exclusivity adds a sort of significant status to owning a console; after all, who doesn’t want bragging rights for owning a PS3 with White Knight Story or an Xbox 360 with Blue Dragon right?
Anywho, of all the consoles and their exclusivity, GamePro says Microsoft’s Xbox 360 has the weakest exclusives of them all. Outside Halo 3 and Gears of War, what else does the Xbox 360 have? Bioshock and Mass Effect? Sure! Fable 2 and Splinter Cell: Conviction? Hell yes! Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey, Cry On and Eternal Sonata? Go for it! That, of course, fails to make mention in this GamePro article, but there is a bit of truth to the article when saying the Xbox 360 has weakest exclusives of all when compared to Sony and Nintendo. After all, the Xbox 360 is home to mostly FPS and PC ports of FPS, not to mention games lacking in a lot of genres (see: shmups, JRPGs, fighters, action, adventure). Then again, Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, Eternal Sonata, Infinite Undiscovery, and other untitled RPG projects are changing the sudden need for (J)RPGs on the console…but still.
