Good game. Glad the PC crowd are enjoying it as I did. Deserves the sales.

I'm pretty sure this is just talking about digital sales, which will naturally be higher on pc. We know the x1 version sold over 1m and steamspy has the pc version a little above 500k. Unless ms is completely lying and the game sold less than 200k on x1 or steamspy is only reporting 1/6 of the pc sales, your title is incorrect.

The X1 version and the 360 version sold over 1mil, nit the X1 version alone and that was after being given away as a free game on BF as well as December deals. MS counts everything together remember?

Who's stupid idea was it to pit up RotTR against Fallout day one? Anyway, I'm glad to see that the game found more success on one of the platforms it deserved to release on DAY ONE.

Screw timed exclusivity. What's the point if you're going to release it on other platforms later on? Just to piss people off for a certain amount of time and walk away with the cash handed to you. I don't know anyone who goes out to buy a console when they know it'll come to their own in a matter of months.

Because MS helped SE out with funding. Why should the game come out on other platforms if MS had to help the Devs financially? Atleast it is coming out on other platforms unlike the moneyhatted SFV which Sony was supposedly help develope which i call BS on.

Anyway TR is a game worth playing regardless of platform.

No they didn't so stop spreading this lie. The game was being developed along side the PS4 and PC versions (until MS money hated) so MS paid for those versions too?

One is a game that was "moneyhatted" after it was mostly completed so they could compete with uncharted 4.

One is a game that wouldn't actually exist (at least in 2016) without all of Sony's help.

So one is delayed because of the money spent, and one is actually coming out much earlier because of the money spent.

Vastly different.

You need to do some reading. If you think theres a big difference between the two games on how they got developed your kidding yourself.

*Square-Enix stated previously that Microsoft are helping fund Rise of the Tomb Raider's development*

What difference does it make, both TR and SF were in bad postitions. You saying if it wasnt for Sony SFV wouldnt exist.. is the exact same thing in saying if it wasnt for MS, TR wouldnt exist. They both funded the projects and in TR's case, Sony didnt want a bar just like when MS didnt want a bar of SF. Both Square and Capcon wanted a company to help publish there game. First in first serve is exactly what happen.

There was always going to be another SF and TR game. Except you think Sony did no wrong with SF but MS did with TR. Thats the problem there. Infact Sony did worse becasue they completely moneyhatted the game to avoid other consoles where as MS didnt and still allow its competitors the game.

You give company money, they will give you exclusives.

 

 

LOL You really didn't read the article you posted. Nothing is said about Square getting financial help from MS and is about the PR BS claiming that MS believes in them and witht he partnership they can take the game to the next level. Whatever thatc rap means. The writer of the article suggests that MS is the reason the game exists, which is complete BS and he is making factless accuations of MS paying for the development.You made yourself look foolish with that article.

Now he has told Kotaku more about how Microsoft will be involved in Rise of the Tomb Raider, and it turns out they are working with it in many ways, amongst them by funding the development.

Then Phil stated..

And we will definitely be spending money on developing the game - I want to make sure that it's as great as it can be

Still in denial?

These are not my words

 

I am questioning the arguments in this thread. First off. RoTR was going to have a sequel just like Street Fighter 5 was always going to exist. MS helped Fund RoTR to help it in development which Sony did the same for Capcom. They both helped to get there games completed to release on their platforms. Yes both came to PC afterwards however PC is not a console so for Console gamers RoTR released 1 year early for Xbox because MS spent money on it and SFV released on PS4 because Sony spent money on it. Those thinking SFV wasn’t going to happen without Sony are blind. Why should Sony benefit on RoTR sales when they didn’t spend a dime but MS did? That’s why it’s a year exclusive.

Xbox never was the main console for the Tomb Raider series, it is the first time with Rise of the Tomb Raider.
Maybe this explains the low sales.



Such stupid handling of the XO launch. It was painful to watch such a good and otherwise mainstream dead on arrival when it launched last year.

Hopefully the sales pick up when it released on PS4 too.
