At first glance this might make sense, but the reality is, that the way to establish a huge installed consumer base is, to make the consumers to buy the new consoles, by delivering such new titles (everyone wants to play) ONLY on those new consoles. If they still would deliver these games to all consoles, there would be no incentive to also buy the new consoles.

So you see, they really have no choice here. Consoles are usually pressed into the market with really strong launch titles other platforms lack.

I'm not saying this because I agree or prefer it this way, but…
