Remember when Microsoft had more than just 3 exclusives and it when they used the word "exclusive" it wasn't just about timed exclusive DLC? Those were good times...

I was impressed by the gameplay-footage....
... then they announced they will once again be DLC-milking this game, and I suddenly lost all interest again.

I dont know why anybody is surprised. This has been the same conference for the last 3 years.


from all your comments I see all you ever complain about is DLC. you should probably stop gaming then because its been around for a while and its not going anywhere.

To be fair to eidos they never said anything about day 1 DLC, simply that 360 will get it first.

... I should stop gaming!? Are you kidding me!?

DLC-announcements just make me determined to not buy these games at launch for full price. I can always pick them up a year later for a fraction of the price and ALL the content included.

Plus there are still great games being released by developers who aren't trying to nickel-and-dime me, like the brilliant Trials Evolution which has an active community offering free DLC on a daily basis.

So no, I'm not going to stop gaming, and I'm certainly not going to stop complaining about greedy publishers who are trying to nickel-and-dime me for extra money, but in return end up getting a lot less.

BTW, I also didn't mention Day 1 DLC.

I could care less for exclusive DLC. I just want to play the game.

Thank You!

People should stop caring about DLC altogether let alone timed DLC.

Most dlc nowadays were unlockables/secret side-quests in previous gens.

People should only buy DLC that are similar to the GTA4 episodes imo.

This is rediculous. U dont win an E3 like this. I lobe xbox but they are pissing me off. Yeah a new gears and timed exclusives for BO2, TR & RE6. 2 of these games r knkwn for being playstation classics. So, instead of announcing great new IPs and exclusives like ps3, they rely on halo, gears, and buying out every developer to lock up multiplatform dominance. Its a fine business move, but its lazy and worries me more than ever about the xboxs future regarding hardcore gaming.

I knew it was going to go downhill once MS said to their fanbase, "You do not know what a hardcore gamer is".

This was in response to many complaints of Kinect being too focused on casual gaming.

The article was around the time they switched the name to Kinect.

Is this the best Microsoft can do. I want Valve to make Microsoft run out of business

Gah I hate timed DLC! *hits head against desk* I don't want timed DLC for any game on any console. It's like saying to the customers who bought your game on a console they like, "Hey buddy, thanks for buying our game, but you're just not as appreciated as the ones who bought it for THIS console." It's a slap in the face and honestly it's one of the only things that really pisses me off with gaming.

Sorry to those who disagree, but it just feels like an insult to me even if it's for the console I was going to buy it for anyway.

I thought this timed DLC nonsense was over and M$ were only going to bother with CoD titles. I also don't quite get how DLC could work for Tomb Raider anyway.
Ramses3  +   1153d ago
Not this shit again. Either make the game exclusive to one platform or don't have any of this timed dlc bullshit, its just annoying and unfair to people with the other console.
rmedtx  +   1153d ago
That has proven to be very good for PS3 gamers because most bugs get fixed and they normally throw a couple of extras free in there.
Darth Stewie  +   1153d ago
No thats for a game being timed exclusive not for timed DLC.
rmedtx  +   1153d ago
It work for both Darth.
azshorty2003  +   1153d ago
still not stopping me from buying on ps3. f u microsoft.
NastyLeftHook0  +   1153d ago
of course it should not stop you. its timed! lol.
Dreambox  +   1153d ago
The games isn't even out until next year and yet here they are announcing they have DLC planned. How nice.

Seriously, what crap.
nevin1  +   1153d ago
lol, I was going to say the same thing.
AgreeFairy  +   1153d ago
Didn't plan on playing this garbage reboot anyways. It doesn't even look like a Tomb Raider game and it uses some alternate reality whiny, useless version of "Lara Croft". I'll skip this trash.
Kur0  +   1153d ago
It looked good to me, not that upset about the DLC being timed.
abc1233  +   1153d ago
Timed exclusives and online passes - two things that need to be stamped out
BrianC6234  +   1153d ago
I won't be buying this game for sure now. I didn't have much interest to begin with but if publishers want to make it easier for me to not buy their game give the 360 timed exclusive DLC.
jalen247  +   1153d ago
Showing a bunch of multiplatform games was pretty weak by Microsoft.

I was hoping for more this year but I should have known better...LOL.

Demo was very impressive. I don't care about timed exclusives...I don't buy DLC right away anyway...
Lucretia  +   1153d ago
MS will never have anything but gears, halo fable forza and kinect.

all they focus on is kinect so your right you should have known better buddy. I knew this would happen, but ofcourse everyone was saying "Wait for E3!!!" waited, saw and i laughed :D

We are getting told timed DLC even though the game is only out in a year. Shame they couldn't of bundled it all on one disc so customers had more bang for their buck, but I suppose those days are long gone now.
ger2396  +   1153d ago
Why complain about timed exclusive dlc? Just don't buy the game. Unless you absolutely have to play it. Otherwise buy it used.
koehler83  +   1153d ago
I agree and I will begrudgingly pass on it. I had been looking forward to it too.

The unfortunately thing about this is that it vindicates them when the snubbed platform sells less as a result.

Oh well. As ever, the politics continue.
svoulis  +   1153d ago
I am excited about this game, not only cause its a complete rip off of Uncharted, but because I liked uncharted, It will probably feel like a side story in the Uncharted Series.

The only way I am ok with buying games that copy other games, is when the game is actually good. Nothing is original anymore but at least keep it on par.
archemides518  +   1153d ago
i'll b getting this on ps3
TheGamingArt  +   1153d ago
Of course it is, they're not aiming head to head with Naughty Dog. So their going for the audience that doesn't have a Naughty Dog. * sigh * .. so ungrateful to the company who even made them remotely noticeable.
Kaos_Vll  +   1153d ago
now i see why sony fanboys hate this game, it must eat them alive to know that the game that inspired their cherished uc is going to be enjoyed by all.
Nakiro  +   1153d ago
What have you been smoking?
Kaos_Vll  +   1153d ago
the same thing uc fanboys (not fans) have been smoking apparently.
GraveLord  +   1153d ago

Plan on buying this for my PS3. Won't be buying any DLC.

hate it when Japanese devs suck up to Microsoft.
