This is just stupid. Why won't Google regulate this crap? I shouldn't have to root just to get games. Also, doesn't exclusive mean less money???

How would Google regulate something that isn't breaking any of their rules? If you start regulating this, then people will want Google to start regulating other stuff. Then, Android will no longer be known as an open-source operating system. And if it will be like Tegra Zone then I'm pretty sure all of the games will also be available on the Android Market. But, you can't solve the problem by regulating stuff. Look at the US and all of the stuff we regulate in our market system and the problems we have.

THESE ARE NOT EXCLUSIVES!!!! Certain games were "optimized" for a certain chip, not that they'll only run on that chip. They'll just run better, or that chip was the lead platform in development (like a game made on Xbox and ported to the PS3). I doubt they would ever make games exclusive to a chip, that's just dumb and would completely screw themselves. You read into wrong, plain and simple.

Sorry Forsaken, but the announcement explicitly says "exclusive to Snapdragon powered devices".
The may be time-limited exclusives, but that still will create more customer frustration than benefit.
