Sure it is. And I did. And you probably can, you just aren't trying hard enough.

There's a big difference between having an original, new IP be exclusive to a system and having a long running franchise "bought" into exclusivity. One is to build a base for your system, to show it's being supported and to hope for a big franchise a la Uncharted/Halo/Gears, the other is generally to bring attention to you and sell systems. And that's all I'm saying.

To Microsoft's credit, it was smart of them to cancel the PC version as well. You'd be amazed how much that has been undermining my console game purchases this gen.
