This is always the biggest indictment against the Xbox. Almost all of its games come out on the PS systems or PC too. Whereas the PS systems get a lot of exclusives. These are mainly in the form of JRPGs and obscure fighters, but that gives it an actual reason to be purchased instead of just...
I always bring up to my friends that Dragon Age should just do Dragon's Dogma's combat already and stop trying to please both crowds with that pseudo-action, pseudo-tactical system that is just bad. Just be an action game, your combat will thank you for it.

I'll be the first to admit that, while the games are pretty impressively designed for their time, the games can get pretty bullshit when it comes to difficulty. I like the games (and love X), but Nintendo Hard has its flaws.
