    There is to hate. that you buy a system EXCLUSIVELY for some games. Or i might aswell stick to pc gaming. THAT is my problem. Wasting your money.

    That's a good thing. More can play, if there's an audience.

    Don't rely on games being exclusive, but enjoying the games available for the console.

    Obviously you can't rely on it. thats the entire discussion. if games are timed exclusive why bother buy console with said game.

    This is one of the reasons why I dislike home consoles and only really care for handhelds/nintendo consoles. If the main reason you'd want that system is just for a few exclusive games that will eventually get ported to PC, you're doing it wrong. You should have exclusive features and gimmicks, not exclusive GAMES. the only exception for this would be back in the 90s where the Genesis and SNES had very different exclusives mostly because of their insanely different hardware, and how they have different hardware features that can't be replicated on the other console (mode 7, more colors, Blast processing, etc) but nowadays every game can just be put on every console and really it just feels like they're locking it all back under a 300-400 dollar paywall.

    Which is what should be because it incentives developers to make different/more games.

    I'm curious, what value do you see in exclusives as a consumer? Usually people buy a console so they can play a really good game that isn't available anywhere else. It's a pretty shitty deal for the consumer in the end because they're ending up having to pay hundreds of dollars on top of the ~$60 or whatever price just to play a single game.

    Is it just buyers remorse after the game gets ported, so you feel like if you had just waited you could have saved yourself the cost of the console?

    It is simple. There more competition the better games we get. The different consoles gives us that!
    So you pay for those systems to get those exclusives that might not even produced otherwise! But now they might since they made money from them on the consoles and think they can play both sides... I mean it can work for them.. but for the consumer that bought his/her console it is sucky cuz he/she shoulda just waited in half the cases these days.
