Sayonara, Third-Party Exclusives


Someone hand Square Enix a cigar for wising up to a fractious console climate by promising former PS3-exclusive Final Fantasy 13 to U.S. Xbox 360 owners in this year's biggest didn't-see-that-coming shocker.

Bad news for fanboys and franchise monopolies, otherwise known as "a major coup" for the rest of us. — Matt Peckham
