Tomb raider because its coming to only Xbox unlike SF V coming to PC along with PS4. Also the creator ono said that SF has some development cost issues in an interview. So sony should have provided some support and PS4 is in great momentum now in next gen race so its easy to go with exclusive to save costs and get good sales (Xbox one dead in Japan and europe except UK and US).


Like Ryse and other Xbox exclusives? Oh wai...

The way I see it both Xbox and Playstation win with that Tomb Raider deal.

1. Xbox gets to have Tomb Raider over the Holiday period

2. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End doesn't have the competition

3. 2015 is already shaping up to be something special for PS4 owners, so Tomb Raider coming out in 2016, might not be a bad idea.



SFIV tapped into a certain nostalgia for Street Fighter and it looked really cool at the time. Looking at the drop off in sales with the Super and Ultra versions of SFIV (or SF x Tekken), I don't know if the nostalgia crowd will be back, so only the hardcore will buy it.

TR should be a mainstream hit that will sell to the mass market. I assume there will be a bundle (and a themed console as well). Therefore, TR will be the bigger deal, but SF could surprise and capture the zeitgeist again.

I am hoping for a SF-themed PS4 though :)

Well Tomb Raider is big in Europe. Throw in a exclusive bundle and MS is set.

Plus I know this is controversial, but X1 has had Killer Instinct, a continuously evolving and meaty game. Xbox gamers had their fighter fix for over a year and by next year the game will be even bigger through character additions and updates.


So bascially you are saying its better Street fighter? lmao

lol no. Where did I say better? You are putting words in my mouth. Only food goes in my mouth, not your dirty words ;)

Im saying Xbox One has its own fighter for over a year, and its a great game in its own right. Also saying at least the fighting genre won't be something X1 is lacking in just because it doesn't get SF4.

Older and wiser. Still bias and proud though ;)

"Exclusively not on PS4"

I'm sure that was what caused the "Oh wai....."

Right? Right? Of course it was ;)

tomb raider 2013 lived on the word of mouth of its community and got to around 2.2 million including its definitive edition, but after the outrage i doubt it will reach as much success, yeah Microsoft will do a marketing push, but not much will come out of it, female protagonist don't fly all that well with microsoft's mass market advertising. SFV has a devoted following and the 8 million sales don't lie, but the fact the fanbase has been slashed will do it some damage. The competitive aspect of SF will bring it more popularity than the single player story of tomb raider, its a game yoy can play with friends and has the social competitive aspect to it.



since it's been said that SFV will (as for home consoles)only be on PS4, and it's known that Tomb Raider (again home consoles) is timed, I'd say SFV.

Maybe to you but i assure you this is quite a blow to the fighting fans on Xbox. The online is more competetive on 360 than ps3.

Excuse me but what? Before you comment on what someone said, make sure you understood what that person meant. Now re-read what was said, and gather some info about which support Ryse, Dead Rising 3 or Titanfall and maybe other "exclusive" X1 title, then re-read the bolded sentence. You can thank me for doing the thought process for you later.

Edit: I never even liked TR to begin with..
