tons of arguments on this board all the time about what an "exclusive" game is. Unfortunately for some of you the press, the gaming industry insiders and most actual gamers have decided that a game being on only one of the three current console platforms makes it an exclusive. PC doesn't count. Mobile doesn't count. Even past generations of the same company don't count. sorry guys.

I don’t think whether or not PC gets a game matters. Plus Microsoft has made it so that both Xbox and PC are being combined with their Play Anywhere.

It’s great, and I don’t see an issue with it. Plus let’s be honest, the majority of those who hate Xbox are just PlayStation fanboys. Why should they care if PC gets it or not? They’re just pissed because their CONSOLE of choice doesn’t get it. It’s a console war. PC should have no part.

This topic won't change anything. Trolls will still come out with different accounts and make the same topics over and over again.
Show those haters how it's done by hating yourself the most

It's common sense to anybody not a troll. If I can get it on XB and no other CONSOLE it's exclusive. Those who argue otherwise are insecure about their console of choice.

Who gives a s*** if it's on any other CONSOLE? It's playable on alternative systems and hence not exclusive to the Xbox One. Anything else is semantics.

It is not exclusive to the Xbox One, period. Common sense.

You can say "it doesn't matter", "it's a good thing" or whatever and I will agree but it doesn't change anything. Stop misusing words in order to make your console sound better. It makes you sound like a console warrior and an idiot.

PC is separate from consoles period. If I go look at VG chartz it doesn't tell me the PC sales... Nintendo and Sony aren't competing against PC. They are up against Xbox. Whenever you see numbers or comparisons or sales figures its PS/XB/Nintendo, no PC included lol.

The only people who associate PC with consoles are PC elitests or gamers on other consoles who are butthurt over MS software.

http://www.vgchartz.com/ so werid it doesn't mention PC in the hardware totals. Wait, that's weird... I don't see it mentioned in software sales either??

I got the impression exclusive meant only on one system. Console exclusive means only on one console and also on PC. That was my understanding of the situation and there are perfectly suitable names for both those situations.

I think console exclusive is a bit of a silly term, however it does tell me what I need to know. What I need to know is when is the game coming out and what systems it will be available for.
And I'll face no shame. Cause tonight's the night I die for our name

You can try to spin it all you want, but it doesn't make you right. Being able to play it on 2 pieces of hardware, no matter what they are, means it's not exclusive. Once you have to start specifying what kind of "exclusive" it is ("Microsoft exclusive," "Console exclusive," etc.) it becomes a moot point. I could say "Call of Duty WW2 is a January 4th, 2018 3:12 PM exclusive because that's when I bought it," but that makes me look like as much of an idiot as people who do the same with other unrelated prefixes.

Same goes for mobile, handhelds, and remasters. The Last of Us isn't exclusive, TLoZ: Breath of the Wild isn't exclusive, Forza Horizon 3 isn't exclusive. Doesn't matter who makes the game or the hardware it's played on. Doesn't matter who collects the money for the sale. If I can play it on Plastic Box A and Plastic Box B, it's not exclusive. Looking at it any other way is just trying to skew data in one direction or another.
