That's NOT the way it works with most console and handheld games. Plenty of console games are exclusives or timed exclusives. PlayStation has lots of exclusives, and Xbox has more timed exclusives or exclusive DLCs. DS and PSP/Vita have many games that are not available on other platform. If a gaming platform did not have enough exclusive title, no one would bother with it
