From Game Informer:
"The calculating scientist Shockwave captures the Autobot warrior and his crew, and experiments on them using data gathered from a far off planet called Earth - a world still in it's infancy, populated by hulking reptilian beasts."
So, there you go. That's why there are Dinos on Cybertron.
We already know. It's been discussed in the Fall of Cybertron thread.

Again, credit to Game Informer Magazine:
"Fall of Cybertron (FOS) is part of a new inititive to codify and begin anew with the Transformers fiction. Over the course of numerous cartoons, comics, toy lines, and movies Transformers had become a mess of continuities and concepts. Moving forward Hasbro wants to bring meaning to the chaos. While FOS draws deep from the well of old stories and characters, it's part of a new and definitive approach to the characters and thier universe for the coming years.Consequently, the events depicted in FOC and it's predicessor occur in the same universe as the related novels, and episodes of Transformers: Prime, the CG cartoon currently airing it's first season. This is the new official cannon of the Transformers."
Hasbro's Aaron Archer goes on to talk about how they've re-invented the Transformers every couple years, and they don't want to do that anymore. The game "tells the opening parts of that tale."
So not only are the games official cannon, but we aren't going to be seeing reboots every couple years. Awesome(IMHO).
Again, we know. It's called the Aligned continuity. These games aren't G1 and bear no connecting relation to it.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.
