Thats just plain arrogant to make a game only for their console

The Xbox needed a flagship to rise above the other consoles. Halo was that flagship. If it was on PC too, the effect wouldn't be the same.

I don't know if it makes that much of a difference. They should at least go back and port some of their games over to bring in more PC gamers. The thing that Microsoft is starting to do is bring down PC gamers. Windows 8 is a horrible platform for gaming and they know that it is and they knowingly made it horrible for PC gamers. I think they are trying to make their console seem better by making Windows worse

I agree that console exclusives are a negative thing, because it's a barrier that prevents a big part of the community from playing a lot of games (and some really good ones too), but it's a reality and far from a problem exclusive to Halo.

Exclusive titles are one of the last few (if not the only) real factors of distinction between consoles nowadays. Nintendo practically lives by its first-party titles' appeal. Exclusives make consoles competitive.

Where have I led you to believe that? Granted, it's not much my favorite type of game, but I prefer the atmosphere games like Halo have.

Oh no offense or anything, You just seem like a wii kind of person.

But yeah I think the Exclusives are definitely the reason people play certain consoles over another. But even some PlayStation games are starting to show on Steam and im liking it

Like none. A quick google search and checking the steam store for some of the biggest exclusives I know of for PS3 (Uncharted, Infamous, The Last of Us, God of War, and Little Big Planet all had no results) shows that it was a blatant lie. No PS3 exclusives are coming to PC. No Xbox exclusives are coming to PC.

I can't say it any better than ihsahn already has.

First off I said PlayStation exclusives never PS3 exclusives. And im talking about the Legendary Soul Reaver and some older games. Its not a Sony exclusive just a PlayStation exclusive. But man I love that game
