    Gaming would be better off if there were less exclusives and more multi platform games. Microsoft is doing it right.

    You might be better off, but Sony certainly wouldn't be!

    PS4 is a run away success largely due to it's stellar line up of exclusives.

    Personally, I like console exclusives. They give the boxes a personality of sorts. Otherwise, what is to really differentiate them other than the UI?

    This generation has suffered from a lack of quality AAA titles, so i think more exclusives is the way forward for gaming, especially at launch. Looks like Sony are starting strong from the off...Again!

    There's already minimal amount of exclusives, compared to the days of past. I think having a couple more wouldn't hurt gaming at all. Having exclusives gives a certain flavour to each platform, which I think is good.

    Also exclusives tend to be high quality games precisely because they are exclusives and publishers give their developers plenty of freedom and time in developing and polishing their product, instead of rushing it for a quick money grab, because they know that since it's an exclusive, the better the game is, the higher chance that more people will not only buy the game itself, but also buy a respective console to play that game.

    So yeah, it may not be the best for people, but I actually think it's pretty good for gaming as a whole to have these exclusive gems, as I'm pretty sure that some of these gems wouldn't be as great as they are if they wouldn't be exclusives.

    While exclusives won't ever get me to buy a console at launch, they do influence my decision down the track as to whether or not I'll get "the other consoles" once I've already decided and bought my "main one".
    If there are enough quality exclusives that I am really interested in then I can justify getting another console from that generation.
    If exclusives didn't exist and everything was available on every console then I'd have no need to get more than one from that gen.
    Hope for the best but expect the worst.

    This announcement isn't that the games will only be on Sony consoles, but rather they will be on the PS5 and NOT the PS4.

    I'm guessing Horizon: Zero Dawn 2 will be one of these games. Horizon: Zero Dawn sold over 10 million copies worldwide so there's high demand for a sequel. It really showcased the power of the PS4 Pro so I'd imagine Sony will use the series for the same purpose with the PS5.

    The PS4 did not have a stellar line of exclusives until about a year or so after launch.

    The only exclusives PS4 had on launch day were Knack, Killzone and Resogun, almost Driveclub but got delayed and delayed and delayed, not enough worth getting a console over, whereas Xbox ONE had about 9 exclusives, Ryse, Dead Rising 3, Forza Motorsport 5, Zoo Tycoon, xbox Fitness, Killer Instinct, Lococycle, Crimson Dragon, Fighter Within. None of these were on PS4 or PC at the time.

    The thing that made the PS4 the success it was, it was more powerful than Xbox ONE and cheaper, plus MS reveal at E3 2013 was off putting. Only in the end the exclusives kept it on top.

    I chose the Xbox ONE at launch in 2013 over PS4 due to its high number of exclusives. I thought if they can release this many at launch then there will be loads more to come, but how wrong I was.

    Following this experience I have no desire rushing to get any console at launch, although I do intend on getting PS5 day one if its BC with PS4, as my Pro gets too annoyingly noisy, and will play the PS4 games better and not hopefully not ruin the experiences by a noisy fan. Considering the PS5 is more powerful then the fans may not be needed unless running a PS5 game!

    BC still not finalised and last news said Sony still working on it, and it may only be partially BC with PS3. If the PS5 is not fully BC with PS4 and only some games BC and they release a newly designed Pro which is quieter then I may buy that instead of PS5.

    The PS4 needed more exclusives day one than the PS5 will do if its backwards compatible, with it being a fresh start. If you can play PS4 games on PS5 then it won't gather dust while you wait for the PS5 games to come. In the first year or so in 2014, I mainly played on my Xbox 360 over Xbox One and PS4.

    On that theory there may only be one exclusive day one for PS5.

    I also think that if the PS3 games were playable on PS4, games like the Last Guardian which was going to be a PS3 game would still have been a PS3 game, but it only got updated to PS4 as by the time game was ready to be released the PS4 would be in full swing and it would not sell well if on PS3 and not playable on PS4.

    I didn't mention launch...nor did the guy I was replying to.

    I switched from xbox to ps this generation because of exclusives. Launch exclusives mean little. The huge difference in fantastic exclusives over the life of the console is huge. It is really the only factor in buying a console now with the introduction of cross system play. You dont even have to buy the same system your friends play. Exclusives are the selling point unless you really have an obsession with a specific controller.

    Personally I think multiplayer games should be crossplay, and both companies should focus on stellar exclusive single player games.

    I bought the PS4 Pro for exclusives. I have the Xbox one X as my main system. I don't regret it at all. I will be getting both systems when they come out this year too.

    I see most people misunderstanding the word exclusive here.

    The news is that while all Xbox Series X first-party titles will be playable on Xbox One as well for the first year or so, most PS5 titles will NOT be available for PS4 and Sony has little to no plans on making PS4 games come November 2020.

    Knack 3 baby!

    In all seriousness though, I don't really care either way. Launch titles have always been middling AAA experiences rushed out to meet console launch dates. I'd prefer "enhanced" current gen games like Halo Infinite, The Last of Us 2, Ghosts of Tsushima, Cyberpunk, etc, and then devs can get more time to fully harness the power of the new systems for new exclusive games.
