I'll be so bold as to say it is guaranteed to be on PC because that won't have strings attached. Sony will want to extract a pound of flesh from SE for it to go on PS4 so SE will have pros and cons to weigh up. But I don't there is any credibility to the assertion that MS has a hold over the game beyond 12 months after launch, and it could be as brief as 31 Dec 2015.

I do not believe Sony can extract anything from SE to bring TR to the PS4.  SE already have publishing contracts with Sony and I am sure that will be enough to bring the game to the platform.  If anything, the it takes 6months to a year to get on the PS platform, then it will be up to SE to provide some incentives to get PS gamers to purchase the game more than anything else.



Shouldve made it clear in the first place.stupid mfs

And you can confirm that said publishing contract does not have a clause in it which says "if you put a late port on PS then you have to put in a no cost sweetener and not just release the same exact product that was launched earlier on the first platform" or words to that effect?

Probably wanted to see if they could "sabotage" Sony's conferece but that was such a great showing that they gave up on the idea.

Why pay for timed exclusivity if you're just going to revealed that it's timed before the game even comes out?



Phil Spence stated they are helping some of the funding of development for the title and that the deal is similar to their deal for Dead Rising 3. That makes me believe that 2015 its 360/XB1 release and then PC in 2016

If MS or Sony or anybody else moneyhats a TIMED exclusive, I'm totally fine with it. They use their money to take advantage of the early adopters, both the publisher and the platform owner get their benefits, but in the longer run nobody will be deprived of the possibility to play that game. I can wait even if there isn't exclusivity, as I prefer properly debugged games at a lower price and about which I can gather enough infos and journalist and user reviews to avoid buying bad or excessively buggy ones, so waiting because there is a timed exclusive doesn't change my life in worse. Lifetime exclusive could deprive me of something, but timed one doesn't.
