Sony Is Reportedly Moneyhatting Some 'Huge' Timed Exclusives

Update: Imran Khan has since provided additional comments about this on ResetEra:

"There isn't a major third party out there Sony failed to approach asking what kind of deals they could work out. Some had content, some had games, some had content and games. It is not like Microsoft was not willing to offer, they just didn't want to pay the asking price, because Sony approached with pretty high numbers in the first place."

Original story: One of this week's major talking points has centred around the decision to make Spider-Man exclusive to the PlayStation versions of Marvel's Avengers, and now according to an industry insider, Sony will be locking up more "huge" games with timed exclusivity going forward (thanks GamesRadar).

This comes from former Game Informer editor Imran Khan, who made the comments on an August 6th episode of Kinda Funny Games Daily. Khan recently stated that the next year will be a "marathon of getting upset" for those who are unhappy about timed exclusivity, and elaborated on this further in the show:

"There are things you will be shocked to find out that Sony is moneyhatting, that they are locking up for timed exclusivity. 'Wow, that is a game that you're choosing?' Not because it's bad, but because it's huge.

I'm interested to see where this conversation is going to be in a couple of months because there are games that are widely accepted as multi-platform that Sony is locking up for a little while..."

How do you feel about this? What games do you think Khan's referring to? Share your thoughts in the comments.
