I don't mind the exclusivity so much, but I think the timing is an epic fail on Bethesda's part. Dec 4th will be great for Xbox Christmas season, but the PC version sold more copies than the Xbox, if I'm interpreting the Steam data correctly. The PC version will be after Christmas, and many folks are low on cash in January. This will also fudge sales to make it look like PC users aren't as interested in the DLC as Xbox users. The marketing head of Bethesda is being abused by the smarter marketing folks at Microsoft. I can't figure out how releasing the PC version after Christmas is in Bethesda's best interests. That exclusivity contract might be massive dollars though, so it might pay off. Only Pete Hines and company knows, and they're not telling
