I play many games, and I’ve played them on many different systems. I like getting cool new skins and maps just like the next guy, but these big corporations really kill me with exclusive content. Nothing aggravates me more than Playstation or Xbox getting exclusive content for a game that the other system has as well.
I know many gamers are either in Sony’s pocket or Microsoft’s pocket, but I’m an equal opportunist gamer. It just so happens that currently, I play on Xbox. Now, I’ve thought about writing this post many times, but the thing that finally made me write it is, Fortnite.
Fortnite as probably all of you know is a battle royale game that has gathered a huge fan base in the last year, and only seems to be growing. The biggest thing that players get is skins for the character and different emotes and skins for their hammer. I’m not big into the game so I don’t know if there are exclusive skins for Playstation, Xbox, or PC, but what really blew my mind is that Samsung just launched an exclusive skin for mobile players.
Honestly, I don’t see what the point of giving an exclusive skin or content in general to one console over another. I’ve seen it done with games such as Call of Duty, Destiny and a plethora of other shooters, but it really makes no sense to me. Maybe they think it will encourage players to go buy that console, but in my opinion, anyone who does that just for exclusive content needs some help.
Well, thanks for reading my rant. Tell me what you think about console exclusive content in the comments below, and as usual thanks for reading.
