Reader Discussion: How Do You Feel About Third-Party Exclusives?

by Mike Futter on Oct 30, 2013 at 05:05 AM

In the midst of EA's second-quarter financial earnings call yesterday, chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen put to bed one of the hottest discussion topics in the next-gen conversation. Many people have wondered whether Titanfall would ever make the jump to PlayStation 4. We now know that it absolutely won't, at least in the series' inaugural outing.

We've become used to almost ubiquitous multiplatform parity as the current generation has carried on, but Titanfall exclusivity is a reminder that isn't how things used to be. We want to know how you feel about third-party exclusives? Do you like having games that make each of your systems special and consolidate your friends, or do you prefer diving into a single platform and playing as much as you can on one machine?

Let us know what you think in the comments. We'll highlight some of your thoughts in this afternoon's second Reader Discussion.
