What happened to it being a commercial failure?

Need4Game1600d ago

Hope with this sequel Square Enix can produce a Next-Gen Game-Engine that can cut cost for the next Tomb Raider, Deus Ex & Hitman.

I'm a big fan of tomb raider. I can't wait to see the next game. It'll be awesome, I'm sure.

Ezz20131600d ago

next gen Tomb Raider ?!

*hmmmmmm,Dat next gen butt*

Need4Game1600d ago (Edited 1600d ago )

not commercial failure, just a "sales projection failure".

Craigatorian1600d ago

Square Enix used too much money

Rather, they expected way too much in return.

I loved it. Played it on PC. Hopefully they expand the use of TressFX because it made a world of difference graphically.

Yeh i love the 3D steroscopic on it when played PC. Now with steam trading cards cards i need to replay it. Her ass pops out the screen 😋

JsonHenry1600d ago

Playing in stereoscopic 3D with TressFX on made my framerate drop down into the 30s according to FRAPS. But it did look damn good.

Didn't Tressfx just give her more life like hair?
I had to turn it off in the end, as her hair was doing stuff it should not have been doing.

The only thing that was a commcercial failure with that game/IP was their management skills and efficiency with their money.

If you need to sell 3 million to break even, as a standard game, then you've obviously mismanaged your money in multiple areas along the way over a multiple year period. = should be fire.

Don't spend $50 million on a game and 40$ of that goes into the graphics.

Put $40 million into the gameplay and $10 mil into the graphics. = You will sell more and be profitable.

pretty sure you don't know how budgeting works -_-

double post

Sevir1600d ago (Edited 1600d ago )

Lol... This comment started off sound and then turned into a ball of non-sense at the end. You have no grasp on game development budgets. You think development is focused solely on spending 50 million in developing graphics and gameplay..?

Game development budget goes in 5 phases, pre production, production, Marketing, manufacturing distribution and post mortem draw down, generally after the game ships.

Games will get green lit with generally 20-40 million dollar development budget/marketing budget for multiplatform games. 20 Million generally covers development and the other 20 million is spent on marketing, manufacturing and distribution

Lmao at 40 million dollars on gameplay 10 million on graphics. -_-

3 million copies sold is not a commercial failure, its a success story. Just because it didn't reach 5 million copies doesn't mean its bad Square Enix!

And PC. I love the recent Tomb Raider game on PC.

jakmckratos1600d ago

maybe it was a translation misunderstanding..perhaps they meant "We had a commercial for this on TV that wasn't that good"
