Sony – 'We don't buy exclusivity'

Jack Tretton has been talking to PlayStation magazine about the recently hot topic of exclusivity.

It seems that Sony does not quite understand the idea properly. Jack has gone on record saying  

We have a very different approach to exclusives than some of our competitors. We don’t buy exclusivity. We don’t fund development. We don’t, for the lack of a better term, bribe somebody to only do a game on our platform.

So Sony does not offer the developer any incentive what so ever to develop games for it’s system. What it does currently offer it a complicated architecture, buggy development tools and a small user base.

Now I wonder why the developers are not falling over themselves to develop for the PS3… I wonder what the heads of Sony are thinking about at this time? They sure as hell aren’t thinking about gamers that’s for sure.

So if Sony haven’t given money over to keep Metal Gear Solid 4 what are the chance of Microsoft being willing to send some of it’s spare cash over?
