Rise of the Tomb Raider - Coming to PS4 and PC

57 posts in this topic

SE pretty much made the game dead for the whole 2015-2016 year, there is too much coming out on both consoles that it was just a waste.

Old news. It was already a known fact that it would only be a timed exclusive. 

Yes, but we didn't know for how long or which consoles it'd release for - M$ could have paid for it to be a console exclusive, but it would still be timed because it was going to PC.

Wow, really didn't think this would happen.

It was pretty much confirmed when they made the announcement and they had to calm down angry fans. This was expected and is zero surprise. 

Keeping the Console Wars fanboyism to a minimum, I think this whole thing is an incredibly silly decision for Microsoft.

 

They've paid $40 Million (IIRC) to make ROTTR a timed exclusive. This was most likely done to rival Uncharted 4's Holiday release before it got delayed, as Xbone has no game in a similar vein to Uncharted. Now that Uncharted has skipped off to 2016, Tomb Raider is left with the behemoth that'll refuse to share sales - Fallout 4, while not everyone's cup of tea, it is undeniably going to leave a huge impact sales wise for other games in November. 

 

So bottom line, Microsoft has paid however much to advertise a game as an exclusive, when a year later, the same game will probably sell better on the competitors console. Hopefully all this controversy deters them from ever making a decision like this again.

Very true. They should delay this game. The plan is gonna backfire Fallout 4 will demolish it. Also Xbox has almost 10 million less console sales than the PS4. No doubt tomb raider 2 sells way better on the PS4 even a year later. Microsoft's game division is crumbling. They have to pay for timed exclusive titles to have a chance at survival. PS4 is lapping them time and time again. PS4 has all the good 1st party exclusives (Uncharted, Horizon, Ratchet and Clank, Little Big Planet, Infamous, Killzone, Last of Us etc. etc.) and all the relevant and big time timed exclusive dlc or exclusive content. I.E. Destiny, Call of Duty, Battlefront etc.

Would be really awesome of Sony to release it for free with PS+ after having to wait that long as a 'Thank You', but I don't think that'll happen. However I do hope it costs half the price.

Don't forget Call of Duty, a game that gets pre-orders nearly a year in advance. Call of Duty and Fallout both will reign as kings in the holiday season. As popular as Fallout is, Call of Duty still gets more pre-orders and more sales, being a bigger franchise.
