Besides if Uncharted was any good they would port it to other consoles. Worked for Mass Effect.
Console exclusive games just seem stupid to me seeing its just limiting a games sales.
That's a stupid statement. One of the most universally loved games of this generation is not good because it's a PS3 exclusive?
I mean, I agree with your last point... they do limit sales, but it is what it is. Doesn't have any impact on the quality of games.
And Uncharted is developed by a Sony-owned studio. Naughty Dog was bought by Sony in 2001. Why would Sony allow them to make games for their competition?
Anyways, Mass Effect probably would have been multi-platform from the beginning, but Microsoft threw money at them and had exclusive publishing rights to the first game. BioWare was bought by EA just a month before the first game's release, so it couldn't really have an impact on it's release at that point. But it was pretty much a sure thing once they were bought that all future games would go to PS3 as well.
