Tomb Raider was Built on the Xbox 360 and Ported to PS3/PC, Sequel Direction Teased by Devs, More

Much like how the Phil Fish AMA on Reddit yesterday told us that they were in talks with Sony about a PlayStation version of Fez, the Tomb Raider AMA with Karl Stewart, Global Brand Director, and Noah Hughes, Creative Director, gave us some more interesting news.
-PSLS (PC, PS3, PS4, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Must have been well designed, then. I also think PS3 outperforms 360 (by a little). At the same time, PC version has HairFx which the consoles doesn't have.

I know right. PS3 had way higher resolution textures according to every website that ever compared them.

Also, if they really want people to take Lara Croft seriously, which it appears they do, they can't expect anyone with an IQ above 60 to think that a skinny little chick who looks like she can't lift 10 pounds can pull off the unbelievable athletic feats in Tomb Raider. It just looks ridiculous. She needs at least SOME muscle definition if you expect me to believe she can do the things you claim she can do. I mean come on!

Yea.

They probably spent more time tweaking and pushing for the PS3 version. Polishing it and whatnot. If they saw they could push it even farther on the PS3 than why not?

Well I have it for the PS3 and it works fine so well done to them for a good port

However I don't know why they are sniffing around MS all of a sudden. Most people would surely get TR for the PS3 with it being an old franchise which became big with the PS1.

I could couldn't play TR with the 360 controler.

Sounds they are going to keep going with the multiplayer....why though fans have spoken we don't want it in the sequel. With Uncharted 2 ND added it, people liked it and they added it again but if it dosen't take then don't do it again.

As for them keep going on about Lara growing as a character I wish they would realise that this isn't Lara we grew up with, they keep making out that it is but how can the Lara we know turn into the "Croft" we know as a gaming legend when we know she's a differnt Croft with a differnt backstory.

I just want the sequel to actualy be like a Tomb Raider game this time instead of just a full on third person shooter.

GTA was playstation exclusive yet GTA IV sold more on 360. Previous gen exclusivity is not a factor.

Because Microsoft paid a lot of money for Timed exlcusive DLC.
Root  +   396d ago
Think that was more to do with

1) GTA4 getting exclusive SINGLE PLAYER DLC which were like expansions.

and

2) At the time third party developers still couldn't work out how to use the PS3 because of it's new architecture thus those games working a little better performance wise on the 360.

Damn, makes you wonder what kinda games Microsoft could've made with that $50 million. lol. THAT'S LITERALLY HALF OF THE DEVELOPEMENT COST OF GTA IV ITSELF!!!!!!

And the 360 version only outsold the PS3 version by like 500,000 copies.

$50 million spent and that's all they got in return. LMFAO!

Also makes you wonder how much better the PS3 version would sell than the 360 version if they had the DLC.

Root,
"I could couldn't play TR with the 360 controler."

Of course you couldn't. Let me guess, the d-pad held you back on the 360 controller, lol.

"However I don't know why they are sniffing around MS all of a sudden. Most people would surely get TR for the PS3 with it being an old franchise which became big with the PS1."

Most people? Like most people got GTA IV on the PS3? What is this belief of yours that not only franchises should stick to their roots but gamers need to as well? Why don't you speak on behalf of yourself and leave it at that.

"Sounds they are going to keep going with the multiplayer....why though fans have spoken we don't want it in the sequel. With Uncharted 2 ND added it, people liked it and they added it again but if it dosen't take then don't do it again."

They will do what they want to do, not what you want them to do.

"As for them keep going on about Lara growing as a character I wish they would realise that this isn't Lara we grew up with, they keep making out that it is but how can the Lara we know turn into the "Croft" we know as a gaming legend when we know she's a differnt Croft with a differnt backstory."

And Christian Bale isn't the same Batman as Adam West and Henry Cavill isn't Christopher Reeve. Some of the past Tomb Raider games were not nearly as good as this one. Be thankful for once they put out a decent game instead of repeating yourself 100 times on how the game should have been what you wanted it to be. Are you voicing your opinion still or are you now on phase 3 of flooding the forums once again with your rhetoric?

Nice, lame sarcasm. Because we all know that the 360 controller is the "best" right? Except the Dualshock design is award winning and the 360 design is just a Dreamcast ripoff. But hey, personal preference doesn't matter right? I mean, if you don't like the 360 controller you're obviously a noob right? Pfff.

"Most people? Like most people got GTA IV on the PS3? What is this belief of yours that not only franchises should stick to their roots but gamers need to as well? Why don't you speak on behalf of yourself and leave it at that."

So, you didn't disprove what he said just changed focus to another game to try and make yourself right? Well, you failed. GTAIV sold more on the 360 because A)There were more 360's available to sell to and B)Exclusive DLC. Oh but you wouldn't know anything about that right? Anything that disproves you doesn't exist right?

"They will do what they want to do, not what you want them to do."

Yep, and they'll have to suffer the consequences of ignoring fans just like Capcom, Square-Enix, etc..

"And Christian Bale isn't the same Batman as Adam West and Henry Cavill isn't Christopher Reeve. Some of the past Tomb Raider games were not nearly as good as this one.

And Christian Bale sucks as Batman, and Henry Cavill sucks as Superman. Where did Root say this Tomb Raider game was a bad game because it wasn't like the older games? Seems to me like he said it was good but he didn't enjoy the multiplayer. He's not the only one that feels that way. He's allowed to voice what he doesn't like about the game. That's why this site exists. But, you know, all you do is look for ways to attack him and call whoever you can a Sony fanboy. It's pretty clear what type of person you are, so maybe you should listen to your own words when you ask "are you voicing your opinion or are you on phase 3 of flooding the forums with your rhetoric." Only replace rhetoric with MS trolling.

DragonKnight maybe you should actually read what was said first before narrowing into my comment to come to his aid. Did I say the 360 controller is better? No I did not. He said he couldn't play with that controller and then asked why anyone would get it on the 360 and not the PS3. It was him attacking the controller. That's a far cry from preferring the dual shock to concluding he couldn't play it on the 360 controller.

The problem i see constantly from him is he tries to speak for everyone. Acting like Tomb Raider cant be played with the 360 controller. Yeah sure. He must be upset when software sales come in and they all arent for the PS3. Then goes on to question why people would buy it only any other platform like gamers are obliged to stick to the Playstation because that's where it started. Sorry but people are not that attached to loyalty.

Microsoft set out to do one thing and that is create parity among 3rd party publishers. People play games not systems. Are you going to question anyone who buys Bioshock or Mass Effect on the PS3 because they started on the PC and 360? Of course not. Or do we make up the rules as we go? Final Fantasy started on Nintendo, now it's favoured on the Playstation. People gravitate back and forth all the time. Loyalty is for suckers. I play games on any platform.

No, you didn't, but your sarcastic jab against him because he couldn't play the game with the 360 controller (note: he didn't mean literally of course) makes the implication that you find his lack of preference for the 360 controller to be folly on his part. At the very least, what you said was equally ridiculous to what you think he was saying.

"The problem i see constantly from him is he tries to speak for everyone. Acting like Tomb Raider cant be played with the 360 controller. Yeah sure.

Sorry but people are not that attached to loyalty."

What it looks like is that you are assuming he's speaking for everyone based on your own opinions. He never implied or suggested anything about the game being unplayable with the 360 controller, he said HE couldn't play it with the 360 controller. And pointing out that Tomb Raider was a successful Playstation franchise is not the same as saying that the people are obligated to purchase it on that system. He pointed out that most of its fanbase would quite correctly view it as a Playstation staple. Do you deny that its history is linked more with the Playstation brand than the Xbox brand?

"Microsoft set out to do one thing and that is create parity among 3rd party publishers. People play games not systems.

This coming from the guy that takes jabs at Sony all the time. Let's get something straight, Microsoft FORCED parity. They didn't care about parity last gen when their console was the most powerful, but this gen every multiplat had to be identical even if that meant a reduction in quality or else Microsoft would cut that game out of the 360's lineup. The only question to ask people buying Bioshock or Mass Effect on the PS3 is "why do you want to disjoint the story?" It's a completely different scenario. You were just looking for a reason to harp on Root because you don't like him. You don't have to like him, but don't try to make your comment seem like anything more than what it is, which is just a reason to take an opposing point to someone you don't like.

@Dragonkinight

"Microsoft FORCED parity."

Really? What particular game did they force parity on?

I know that MS has a TCR guideline that claims they can reject a game if they choose if they feel it isn't up to the same standard or quality found on another system.

And I can for sure tell you that Sony has the same standard found in their TCR/TRC documents for game submissions.

And why couldn't he play TR with the 360 controller? What was so bad about it that he couldn't grasp the controls for the 360? Was their an extra button that he couldn't get too? Was the thumb space from "x" to "a" to wide. It really makes no sense why he couldn't use the 360 controller.

"And Christian Bale sucks as Batman, and Henry Cavill sucks as Superman."

it looks FAR better on pc and has 16x the textures of the ps3/360 version;

http://kotaku.com/5986243/p...

from article;

"PC gamers with the right specs will enjoy high resolution textures with up to 16 times the data of the console versions, detail tessellation to make surfaces pretty, higher quality shadows, some sexy HQ bokeh depth of field effects and improved cloth, SSAO, wetness and post-filter effects."

all multiplat games on pc are FAR, FAR better than the console version, it will be the same with ps4/nextbox, which, with weak cpu's and gpu's, are already FAR behind current gaming pc's

I agree with every thing you just said and don't see how any one can disagree with you. i guess some gamers have there heads there preferred console manufacture ass to see the truth. The PC version of tomb raider is far superior then any console version period. console next gen will not be able to match PC games as usual, We already have developers stating that so why so hard to believe. Hell to be honest a console will never be able to top a PC it can only do what they are already doing now, become more and more like the PC. And before any one says I'm a PC gaming fan boy check my history you will see I am die hard 360 but I just keep it real.

I was always wondering...
tell me

I see Crysis 3 and I see Killzone SF.
I see copy/pasted trees in an ugly city in C3 and I see a city with a lot of DIFFERENT buildings and same buildings, tree petals flying and lying on the floor, a lot of characters on screen, a lot of vehicles on screen, like 30 fires on a screen, bunch of light sources, wind having effect on things in the level....

and in my personal opinion, based on what I see, is, that Killzone looks better.
and somehow, pc guys still say "NEVER will a console have better looking games".

I'm talking about facts.
what, C3 looks better because it has grass ?
it better because it's on a pc ?
it's better because you are playing it on a 3000$ pc and you would feel like an idiot if you see a 400$ console have better looking games ?

A single GTX 680 is around £350-400.
PS3 and 360 costs around £170-200. If you can make me a gaming PC within the £200 budget, only then your comment will have any value.
The Playstation 4 will cost roughly the same amount as your beloved 680, anyone with a budget will go buy the Playstation 4.

Its funny you have to compare the highest end PC GPU with a 6 year old PS3 lol(why dont you make the same comparison against PS4 then say PS4 is expensive?). 150usd GPUs from 3 years back have been beating the PS3 consistently.

So why compare the PS3 against the latest and the greatest? the comparison doesnt even make sense.

You should rather be comparing the PS3 against 100usd GPUs of today, PS3 would get badly trampled even in that comparison.

There are 350GBP setups out there that will completely white wash the PS3. So no dont make it look like the difference is bank breaking.

A single 680 cost alittle less than 500$, how much do you think a console would cost with that. Of course pc gaming is going to be better because you can invest a huge amount of money, 500$ card, 300$ cpu, 100$ ram,100$ power supply, 150$ motherboard, that adds up, and no way a console would survive at that price.
But consoles can be optimized and get close to those 1000 dollar rigs, but with a 400-500$ console.
What I don't get is why are you bringing this up? Everybody knows pc can get the better multi games. The problem with PC is there really aren't any huge exclusives on pc, hence why people go to consoles.
ExCest  +   396d ago
I don't exactly think console gamers go to consoles for the main reason of exclusives.

I'm pretty sure it's: ease of entry, ease of use, massive popularity and fame built from advertising and word-of-mouth, and the idea that a KB+M is not the go-to peripheral for gaming (functional fixedness almost, if you will).
SAE  +   396d ago
I for one can handle the pc problems. But i prefer consoles because of the exclusives. If pc had the ps3 exclusives i would throw the ps3 in the garbage lol. Pc don't have games like heavy rain,demon soul,mgs,gt5,lbp...etc. Same with the ps4. But i agree with you ExCest. Most of console gamers take consoles for the reasons you mentioned..

rainslacker  +   396d ago
PC gaming still has the stigma that KB+M is the only way to play. Also a lot of people out there may not realize that they can hook a PC up to their TV and play from the couch, or whatever. PC gaming in general has been desk based and trouble prone for a long time. Most of the recent advances in PC gaming really only came out this gen(or a little before it with XP...which in itself still had a lot of issues).

These ideas are slowly fading, and more people are seeing that PC's can be more versatile, but given the comments in here it's obvious that many people still believe that PC gaming is more expensive. The reality is that over a machines lifetime it generally is about the same when you factor in software costs through Steam or whatever. Upgrading can also be done at an individuals leisure, and rarely are PC users ever completely locked out of what would be considered a next-gen game.

There are many reasons people stick with consoles though, and I agree, even though PC has made major headway in convenience, it still isn't up to par with how convenient consoles can be. The "Master Race" types may be able to handle whatever comes up with a PC through research or experience, but most users are not that adept at using a PC...particularly when a problem arises.

Games are built using assets which are baked down from higher quality single object/character renders and textures using a myriad of programs which are handled one at a time on PC then coded on any given system, next tested on hardware that is similar to what is will run on but slightly more powerful than what it is expected to run on ( insane PCs and Devkits) where they work out the bugs and re-code, and finally tested on the consumer grade hardware (PCs and consoles).
That explains why it looked so bad. What's worse is it getting a sequel. The REAL Tomb Raider franchise has officially died. Looks like it has been replaced by a mindless shooter that solves anything even resembling a puzzle for you.

"We truly believe that it was and is the right decision to make. "
The way they repeat this line makes me feel this was the response they were told to give whenever someone mentioned multiplayer.

It's only fair to say that the next one will be on next generation systems and will be bigger and that much better...this is one of the very few games that has kept me up until the wee hours of the morning, and that's saying a lot compared to other triple A titles.

I own both a gaming pc/ps3.

Can't stand all this elitist crap from pc owners.

Everyone knows the PC is more powerful then PS3, but it's not in the way many think.

PS3/360 do what they do within a budget of 460mb ram.

PC gamers are also forgetting, next gen systems are running on the PS3/360. When these actual gpu's were more built for BF2 graphics with that bandwidth in mind. 4gigpixels.

That's the reason why, a lot of the time, it's not quite 720p, or shadows, af,aa is missing. It does not have the bandwidth.

But do not tell me for one second the PS3/360 do not output fantastic graphics for what they are.

As for PS4, both the GPU/CPU have access to that 192gb/s bandwidth, has 8cores(regardless of speed) and as long as the pipelines are filled it's a powerful machine.

DDR3 no matter the amount, I have 8gb@ 1600, has a bandwidth of 25gb's.

When the PS4 and next gen, titan is now @ $1000 and you'll see no better graphics with it, just higher rez,aa.

1000% agreed! With PC games you will of course get better resolution, no doubt get better frames. But in realty, you'll only get whats just as good as console versions, no more, no less.

Now with tings like Kickstarter you'll see a bunch of indie PC games really push the tech hard, like Star Citizen! I think those games will be the ones that really take full advantage of PC's. But as of right now, high end PC's are just not in a large enough number to warrant any developer to make a PC exclusive that takes advantage of ALL the high end tech.

PS4 and 720 will pretty much force 3rd parties to port high end games to PC cause by then they won't need to make then exclusive already being on PS4 and 720.

PS4 and 720 gamers get beast games, PC gamers finally get games that take use of 8 gigs of ram FINALLY! (mind you most games don't even use the full 4 gigs most gamers have in there rigs)

Everyone wins!

LOL! Any real reason why this is wrong? Or are butt hurt fanboys (of either side) just....butthurt? LOL! I mean At least have a valid reason for disagreeing....or any reason at all.

M$ play a dirty game. They force devs to make other consoles versions just as crap as the 360 versions. That's why only the first party software on the PS3 really shines. Expect this crap to continue next gen...

I never understood people saying that. How is it then that some multiplats, including TR, are better than the 360 version?
SOULJER  +   396d ago
I did not like it on any system, even PC.
