    Kind of a weird subject to bring up, but I'm doing it anyways.

    What do you think of this, the way Microsoft pays companies to give them DLC before any other company, sometimes even games? Examples being every Call of Duty DLC, Xbox gamers get them 30 days before Playstation gamers, even though Playstation Gamers also pay $50 a year for CoD Elite, they're still treated like second class to XBox Gamers. Or maybe the Skyrim Dawnguard DLC, exclusive for 30 days to Xbox, sorry PC and Playstation, you don't get it just yet. Or maybe that Sony and Nintendo will never get Left 4 Dead 1 or 2, or Mass Effect 1 because Microsoft owns them. Or the GTA 4 DLC, were Sony got them YEARS later. Or most arcade games, they take a while to go to Playstation/Steam because of Microsoft.

    What do you think of this, should Microsoft be allowed to keep third party content exclusive to Xbox, and screw over other fanbases, or is it all fair in console war?

    I'm personally against it, only First Party content should be exclusive, but you know what they say... money talks...

    Yeah, I agree, only first party stuff should be exclusive. Delaying stuff never seems appealing.

    Or at all apparently.

    I was going to say something about how much I hate the Xbox as a game console, but Ctrl+Alt+Del taught me that God hates console fanboys. So screeeeew dat.

    Except you're not a fanboy if you hate something.

    I have a PS3, but back when I did have a 360, I was pretty pleased with it.

    Just too many shooters though.

    I don't like XBOX too much, XBOX1 had some great SEGA and Tecmo stuff though. 360, I think I can see myself buying a ton of XBLA titles over retail stuff. That indie support is amazing I say.
