Is Exclusive Content Bad For Gaming?


Image compliments of BAPengin at - it makes me laugh, a lot.

Recently I've noticed a disturbing trend in the gaming market. It is the addition of game-altering exclusives with nearly every pre-order on the market, primarily at Gamestop. Yes, this is a bit of self-whoring, but I am pretty sure this subject effects the community here, as much as where I originally posted it (sorry, can't copy paste from there, it's against the rules.)

Over at I delved into this trend a bit to spark some debate; does game-altering exclusive content available by pre-order only effect the way you feel about games, developers, or publishers - or are we just overreacting when we say we don't get the "full experience" if a piece of the game is cut out for everyone else?

This is where you chime in. Head over to and throw a few verbal tomatoes.
