While PS and Microbox definitely buy out games and publish them often enough, its only a portion of the exclusives. the majority of exclusives on consoles are not owned by either company. They do the exact thing that epic is doing. Paying a substantial fee to convince other publishers or indie devs to release solely on their console.
