    Yep sure sounds that way. I guess with MS having so little first party to draw from its not surprising that they would once again rely heavily on 3rd party timed exclusive DLC type deals. Definitley not good.

    Unless MS and EA pull the rug out from under us and do something really radical, I don't really see why this would be a good move for either company. EA would be restricting their market to a new platform, and MS would probably be paying out the wazoo. EA is one of the most platform agnostic publishers around, they want all their games on every platform. I don't see them doing full exclusives for either platform at all, it'll be timed exclusives and some DLC at best. Hardly a major selling point. It's even worse for EA since they have routinely said they sell more games on the PS3 than the 360.

    Another "possible" problem could be:

    If MS and EA team up and release exclusives, but they fail ( unlikely) the relationship between the two could be pretty bad, enough for EA to even ignore MS if it does become bad.

    EA are probably the last publishers who will release exclusive games like this imo, especially something as big as BF and even ME2.

    Ea likes money too much to go exclusive.

    Which is exactly why I'm thinking that MS is going to dump good money after bad into timed exclusivity.

    Yeah I don't see MS forking out an exorbitant amount to get system exclusive titles from a commonly multiplatform company. It could happen but i just dont see it.

    MS should be looking and underground devs with potential instead of wasting money for a partnership with EA. LMFAO!! Sorry but that move kind of sucks in my opinion. EA is very known to bring games out without finishing them. meh, I think this could have something to do with respawn maybe?
