Of course it fuckin is: http://j.mp/1oU2Dft (Msoft/Game[stop]s 'Exclusive' douche-baggery continues)

I find it so strange that big companies view the word 'exclusive' as a plus, when by definition it means 'to alienate certain people'.

@Pernicious doesn't mean he can't be against the idea in principle, as am I (though I don't own one)

True, retailer exclusives are annoying. That particular console model is quite ugly in my opinion though, so my own reaction is 'oh well'. They could have put the 1TB drive in the sunset overdrive bundle.

Don't see any way MS benefits from doing this. The US is their biggest market; why not sell it here too?

Well GAME is owned by Gamestop, so one would assume they have the same exclusivity in USA

Okay; when i read "Exclusive to GAME in the UK", i assumed it was only available in the UK at that particular store

NBA2K15 Review

The NBA2K series has been one of the most dominant franchises in gaming. While some sports franchises rely on exclusivity deals to corner the market, NBA2K was able to do it the old fashioned way: make a far superior product to your competitor, and force them to close shop. This dominance allowed NBA2K to end the last console generation as the unchallenged king of basketball video games. 2K began the new console generation with another solid entry in the series. While NBA2K14 for the PS4 and…
