    No it wouldn’t because whatever the reasons Sony has a relationship and connection with Spider-Man that makes us understand why we’ve ended up with exclusive games and now this, even if we didn’t like it. But Microsoft doesn’t have a stake in the X-Men like that, so such a move would be blatantly obvious and foolish.

    I don’t like this situation but it’s clear why we have it - Sony is trying to secure their connections to the character and are willing to pay handsomely for it. We might well see the same with Warner and Microsoft and believe me, THAT is going to get a far more angry reaction if we suddenly learn after years of waiting for the next Batman and the long rumoured Potterverse game that they have to be exclusives.

    Even more Playstation exclusives

    This game went right into the, "I'll wait for a Steam sale" pile.

    Its a lost cause at this point and Sony's exclusivity likely prevents them from doing so

    I don't get the beef over this, there have been console exclusive content in games since...well practically forever. It's just part of life.

    They did that once. They sunk money for an exclusive window on Rise of the Tomb Raider for the Xbox One launch. For more than a year, you couldn't get that on the PlayStation 4.

    That was at the start of the last console war. Now it's 2020, and PS4 is the second best selling console of all time (after PS2) having sold 110 million lifetime units. Second place in this console generation is Nintendo Switch at 55million units. Xbox One is a distant third at 50 million units. PlayStation 4 not only won this console war, but Microsoft lost badly...they were competitive in X360/PS3 days but not anymore.

    For Xbox One owners...yeah this is a kick in the urethra (as BoJack Horseman would put it) but you guys ought to be used to staring through a window and seeing PS exclusives longingly out of reach, so why is this different from the time people talked up Uncharted, Bloodborne, HZD, God of War? I mean I know I felt that way when I owned an Xbox 360 and that's why I converted to PlayStation and never looked back.

    Ultimately I think the console market should be a monopoly, one console to rule them all, that's the only real way to end exclusivity.

    Then there should at least be some X-Box exclusives for the game so as to not make X-Box players feel penalized for not owning a PS4 and getting less content from the game.

    If Microsoft want to ante up, well WB Games is apparently on the market, so they can buy that and gain access to WB-DC's Warchest and Rocksteady Studios (owned by WB).

    That way the next Batman game or whatever new DC big IP title that might come up will be an Xbox exclusive. LOTR games also, HP Games also. So that way all rivalries conjoin into two gangs -- DC-WB-Microsoft versus Marvel-Disney-Playstation. If you want to make it a Mexican Standoff, have Apple and Nintendo partner up with Image Comics.

    That would literally be the worst thing ever, merging the conflict between consoles and comic universes together. And a single character being made exclusive to a specific console vs making numerous universes exclusive is like the Chandler Chair incident in Friends if X-Box was Joey wearing all his clothes in revenge.

    This isn't true. The Nintendo DS is still in second place. The PS4 is actually in fourth place. They did a few million more to surpass the Gameboy.

    This is the era of corporate consolidation, my dude. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Consolidation_(business))

    I mean to people who cheered Disney swallowing Fox whole like Galactus, this is part of the same hustle. All media companies owing to maximize profits and crush competition and so on, are going to hunt for any edge that will give them an edge or keep them in top. So yeah gaming and all that will merge together.

    And a single character being made exclusive to a specific console vs making numerous universes exclusive is like the Chandler Chair incident in Friends if X-Box was Joey wearing all his clothes in revenge.
    It's basically the same principle as "Sega can do what Nintendon't". And you know "Joey wearing all his clothes in revenge" is kind of how Sony PlayStation became a thing because Nintendo d--ked them over.

    When you break it down these rivalries stand at cross-purposes...
    -- Xbox is rivals with PlayStation, but PlayStation sees Nintendo as its historical arch-nemesis, they probably don't even think much of Xbox these days.
    -- Microsoft's competition is Apple and not Sony, parent company of PlayStation.

    But with Disney-WB and Marvel-DC it's directly aligned 1:1 since Mickey versus Bugs and Superman versus Spider-Man are historical street-fights.

    Shoulda made it clearer, the list was home consoles only. Handheld consoles are measured on another list.

    Not to this extent. A character is a fundamental part of the game. It means Xbox and PC versions are the objectivity worse than the Playstation versions

    Those upset over spidey would have hated the gamecube era. They did this all the time. Getting soul calibur? Do you want the version with link or the one with spawn?

    Heck marvel ultimate alliance games had heroes in one version that didn't show in others. Same with the early marvel lego games! You want this hero? Better get the gameboy version. Want mario in that nba game. Get the gamecube version. Don't forget sonic all star racing. Wii had mii. Xbox had avatars. Ps3 can kiss segas butt. Lot of sega ps3 fans were not happy over that. They had one less racer.


    This is nothing new at all.

    In that era each console had an exclusive character so it didn't sting as hard. What is Xbox and PC getting to make up for Spidey being exclusive to Playstation? Nothing.

    Probably because those are all franchises Sony created. Same reason nobody expects Halo and Mario games to show up on Playstation.

    It has no place affecting non-Sony/MS/Nintendo characters.

    Yes, it's happened before. It was stupid then, and it's stupid now.
