  1. Always like hearing about Lang’s travel’s and great talk on the console exclusive stuff. Enjoyed all the Drake talk, but no Drake himself hahaha that’s probably even better than if he was on mic.

    Hope Mr. Teasdale makes another FMV game next, the world needs them to continue! Can’t wait for DiveKick adventure!

  2. Hard exclusives (aka not time-limited or PC as well) are totally the reason I buy consoles. Bloodborne and SFV are reasons I will most likely get a PS4 and Bayonetta 2 is a solid reason to get a Wii U. As soon as a console has enough exclusive games I want, I buy it.

    This is not a recent thing either, hard exclusives have always been the reason I have gotten any console.

  3. The other thing to note about why buy an exclusive is that for consoles, its cheaper to buy the exclusive rights of an already well established brand than it is to create one in-house.

    As Dave touched on employee costs in the US are huge, so if you can make that someone else problem, great!

    Great show as ever
