I do disagree with this. I've been discussing it elsewhere for a while, it was quite obvious from when Microsoft brought Zenimax that this was one of their big goals.I find that no different than Sony exclusives...
I don't mind a platform having a couple of defining exclusives, like Mario and Zelda with Nintendo, but I am not a fan of the more 3rd party style exclusives. Sony do certainly have their own exclusives but there is a big difference in this case.
Microsoft have gone and purchased a well established game studio, with at least 3 very popular and established franchises. So they are not so much paying someone to make a game for them, as opposed to taking franchises away from competitors. Microsoft have always done things like this in the past with various companies, not sure how many times they've had a chat with the monopolies commission But that doesn't make it right.
And just on the HZD, before the updates broke all the textures for me and I stopped playing. I was really enjoying it, great story, well thought out gameplay, and it is a gorgeous game.
