Its interesting how Ms securing one of the bigest posive exclusive deals ever is having more of a negative impact on the gaming comunity than a positive one. Also because Square-Enix is involved and everyone already hates them it became even easier to bash Ms. This Tomb Raider exclusive deal might turn out to do more harm than good to all parts involved specially since it clearly was a money hatting type of deal.


Clearly? Say Microsoft approaches SE and offers them money to make another Tomb Raider game after the first failed to make them much profit. SE would be stupid not too as its Microsofts money and their is no risk for them


Come on man youre not that blunt, Crystal Dynamics already had a new game in development while they were working on Tomb Raider definitive edition and the new Tomb Raider wasnt revealed as exclusive originaly, ye it was on Ms conference but dont you think theyd have screamed from the top of theyre lungs exclusive on E3 if it was exclusive at that point. Also the way it was worded on Gamescon its very misleading, feels liek they dont even want to call atention to the fact that it is exclusive wich is wierd.

 

Ms needed somethign to fight Uncharted, they got a throng of money and threw it at Crystal Dynamics + Squenix and voila exclusive deal done. Theyll clain otherwise of course, theyll never admit to heavy money hatting.

I even think a tweak like announcing the game at E3 and saying "and it is exclusive to X1" would have been better.  There was a complete assumption that was never challenged by Microsoft or SquareEnix that this was a multi platform game.  If it was exclusive at E3 I cannot imagine Microsoft not screaming that from the rooftops.  This announcement coming months later is, in part, why people feel their expectations on this entry have been betrayed.



It is an odd one, they surely would have announced it as exclusive at E3 if it was back then.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

I lost my respect for SE.



I mean, GTAV remastered only showed "on playstation 4" in the reveal trailer. That's because they don't want to be directly advertising for the competitor.

Gotta give it to MS, they took Tomb Raider away but their newly released Cry Engine game is amazing.



Ongoing bet with think-man: He wins if MH4 releases in any shape or form on PSV in 2013, I win if it doesn't.

Isn't that the same type of deal all the game companies make or do companies make games exclusive for Sony & Nintendo because they're BFFs?



Love the product, not the company. They love your money, not you.
