I think companies screw themselves when they do that, surely their is more money in sharing out game properties.

They don’t.

A publisher hires a developer to give them exclusive rights to publish the game. They do this to sell consoles, and they pay more than they would for a regular publishing contract.

Outside of being a fanboy is there really any reason to even buy a PS4 or Xbox One if it weren’t for exclusives? I mean the systems are so similar that the only reason to pick one over the other is which game you prefer on each console. Hell if it we’re for exclusives there wouldn’t even be a need for consoles, everyone would just game on a PC.

This is pretty accurate.
