To add insult to injury, Spider-Man (when he's eventually released as DLC later this year I believe) in Marvel's Avengers will only be playable on Playstation.I'd just like to go on record and say that exclusives are friggin' stupid.
I doubt I'm going to own a PS5. Partially, that's because I have a really beefy PC which can run rings around what the PS5 can do. Partially that's because finding a PS5 for sale is still a pain in the ass, which only further underscores the idiocy of locking games to a specific console that plenty of people still can't even friggin' buy.
Like, I play Marvel's Avengers. My game looks GORGEOUS and runs as smooth as butter with all the settings maxed out. PS5s are still struggling with that game because, basically, they're nowhere near as powerful (which is fine, that's by design). Spider-Man is apparently coming out by the end of the year for that game, but only as a PS4/PS5 exclusive. Why?
I don't get this. Is this supposed to drive people towards buying a PS5? Well then, shouldn't they be making more PS5s so people can freakin' do that?! But no, it's been limited production numbers and unmet demand since the console first came out and they still can't get a handle on it.
Now they're listing a ton of games that'll be coming out which are exclusive to the console, and my basic response is just "Meh. Whatever. Let me know when it comes to PC."
I don't even say this as some "Pc MaStEr RaCe" jackass. I say it because platform exclusives are just a dumb, dumb concept. Hell, for that matter, I think it's a dated idea to release a game on three consoles and not have crossplay these days.
