+1. Should have either been exclusive from the start or not at all.
But no M$ felt like throwing money and boy a lot of money that must have been, considering that Tomb Raider definitive edition looked, ran and sold better on the PS4...

I'm having this discussion in multiple places.  I honestly don't understand how there's some distinction between TR as an exclusive and any other exclusive.  I hear what you're saying (because you assume it wasn't exclusive then it became exclusive) but I don't understand it (since any exclusive game is bad for people who don't have that platform, whether it was or wasn't before).

 

The easy solution to this is to own both (or all, if you count Wii U and PC) platforms.  Any single one will lock you out of options and you'll always find a reason to be pissed about something.  I think it's great that they gave more than a year's notice on this move.  That way people really can save up.  There are plenty of great Xbox exclusives already that will make owning one worthwhile.  By this time next year, there will be even more.  By the time TR comes out, it'll be a no-brainer.

 

And I know not everyone can afford multiple systems.  I get it.  But saving $30/mo will get you a new Xbox in just over a year.  That's not really all that much...

Stillhart,

The point here is that Microsoft is trying to force sales of their product onto the fans of the Tomb Raider series, which was multiplatform to begin with and arguably more popular on PlayStation platform.

Some of us look at it as a scum move on their part, because they basically had to pay a ridiculous amount to do so. You don't see it that way? Okay, so be it... we respectfully disagree.

I was also looking at it from the story perspective.
You don't cut it off halfway through only to continue on just one single platform...
That just prevents everyone who started it on PS4/PC from finishing it.

As a huge fan of the Tomb Raider series, I'm both relieved that I already have an xb1, and sad at the same time. I dislike console exclusivity in general. While the optimization will be as good as it can be sticking with one console, and consoles always have exclusives, it's still something that bothers me. I get it if the consoles can't handle the port, such as ps/x360-wii was, but come on.

Still...beyond stoked for the next tomb raider, lol. I might've bought a PS4 for it.

It's all good. I'm just glad I'm not a fan, because then it definitely would not sit well with me. I would then be one of those who would be forced to buy the other console, just to continue my TR experience.

 

EIther way, I'm stoked for one PS exclusive, in particular, due out in March...

Seems like the next Silent Hill, codeveloped by Kojima-san might be a PS4 exclusive too.
I never played any Silent Hill but damn if I won't this time ;P

Yeah. That's a game I'll be sad to not be able to play. Maybe getting del toro involved will gain some interest in a third movie, with him at the helm. I thought the first movie was vastly underrated. The second one was pretty bad, but had some moments here and there. If he made one though.... It couldn't be bad. There's too much there for him to play with.

TR is a great example of a game where there's no reason to buy it right away.  It's single player, there's no falling behind your friends levels or missing out on fun co-op action.  Buy it when you're ready and the experience will be the exact same.

 

So unless I'm really bored and have no games to play when it comes out, I'll likely be waiting for it to go on sale.  Probably the Steam Summer Sale.  If I'm going to wait to play it, I'll play it on the best platform:  PC.

PS4, definitely. I've been a PlayStation guy since 1997 and have only played an Xbox for a few minutes in my life.

 

The only reason I would get the Xbox One is for the exclusive games - like Killer Instinct!

Sony did the same thing back then but i guess it's ok because it's Sony.

In September 1997, Sony Computer Entertainment America signed a deal with Eidos to make console releases for the Tomb Raider franchise exclusive to the PlayStation, preventing the Sega Saturn or the Nintendo 64 from having any Tomb Raider game released for it until 2000, a deal that would prove very beneficial to Sony both in terms of revenue dollars and also in further cementing the PlayStation's growing reputation as the go-to system for must-have exclusive titles.
