So taking games away from the competition is perfectly fine then Bren? (because that's what sony specialised in when they first entered the gaming market, and for MANY years to come in fact)

oh dear....!!!!!!



Three gaming companies i will respect forever............. SEGA, Capcom, Nintendo.

My gaming HERO= Yu Suzuki (The father of Shenmue, Virtua fighter, he's also an arcade/3D gaming PIONEER)

Proud member of the Sonic Support Squad. (not that he needs it anymore after Unleashed, Generations & All-Stars Racing)

Well, now I need to buy an XB1 for 3 games (none of them out yet)

Is the XB1 profitable as a console? Or are they selling it at a loss? If so, what is the attach ratio they need to break even?



Unicorns ARE real - They are just fat, grey and called Rhinos

Wasn't it just confirmed that it's not an exclusive? Timed exclusive at most.

All Hail the Jester King. The King is back, and I am still a dirty girl prof ;)

FIRST TIME POSTER HERE! :D

Anyway, I'm just going to say, the whole thing makes sense.

Was it not slated to be released in 2015? the same year Uncharted 4 is poised to be released?
Tomb Raider, as good as the reboot was, will probably never sell as well as Uncharted. I believe that franchises have lifespans and I think Tomb Raider hit its end years ago, which is why with the reboot they attempted to take Uncharted's direction with the game.

If it's a timed exclusive, and it may just be, I'm sure it would arrive on PS4 and PC within a year from the Xbox release.

If not, then hey, sucks for Tomb Raider fans, and for the developers. I think that there are specific genre enthusiasts that are associated with each console. Sony typically has the action/adventure, story driven games, while Xbox tends to dominate in the FPS area. I do think Crystal Dynamics is over looking this.

I've only seen one person post that. Don't exaggerate.

OT: Anyway good deal for MS on this exclusive deal.

But I am worried that if this game does not sell as well it could mean serious damage to crystal dynamics. And surprisingly liked the last Tomb Raider game and hope Crystal Dynamics does not suffer under this deal.

Sony must know something, as they own almost 10% of SE, or at least they did - not sure about ownership anymore. Almost reminds me of the FFXIII thing a few years back.

You are right walsufnir, they will choose to brush it under the carpet on here.

But the fact remains that sony took Tomb Raider 2 & and later Tomb Raider 3 AWAY from competing consoles.

Theres so many people on here who think that the sun shines out of sonys arses, when in fact they are every bit as dirty as the rest of them...... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Core_Design


I have a PS4 only (had an X1 for a week retunred it after I realized TF sucked) and even I think it's ridiculous the way some people worship these companies. I don't trust Sony or MS I think they're both shady companies and I could care less about either of them. I got the PS4 cause it was cheaper and more powerful that's it. I work in IT so all of MS's cloud talk wasn't tricking me.

I had a 360 last gen because it worked better with 3rd part games. Next gen who knows which company I'll go with but it'll most likely be the most powerful console unless one of them tries to pull a cell processor then I'll have to rethink what I do.

Nope, Sony sold off their SE shares.

It won't suffer. It's not a true exclusive and will be on both PC and Ps4.
