Nice. Good to see each console have their own unique gameplay..

Pope_Kaz_Hirai_II961d ago

Definitive version... yea or just a quick port as the game performed poorly for eidos sales wise.

Sevir961d ago

It didn't perform poorly, Square Enid over estimated it's sales forcast. It sold 3.5 million during the quarter it launched, square, thought they were gonna sell 5 million...

There's a reason why Crystal Dynamics is working on a sequel.

Deadpoolio961d ago

Uh it sold less than they expected, it still sold over 5 million genius

Stevino321961d ago (Edited 961d ago )

I disagree. Tomb Raider is a successful series. This is the perfect chance to play it without having to go back to PS3 or Xbox 360.

vulcanproject961d ago (Edited 961d ago )

'Completely rebuilt'

Call me a cynic or call me wrong after it launches but if it isn't just the PC version with a few tweaks to the graphics settings and assets with some control gimmicks lobbed in I'll be surprised. Good excuse to try and sell the game again, we are seeing a lot of these sorta cross gen upgrades

Still a great game though, completed it tonight.

GameSpawn961d ago

While I'll agree this seems like a lackluster improvement over the current gen offerings, Tomb Raider was still a good reboot.

I really enjoyed the game. For what they are adding to the "next gen" versions though I'll pass as the previous gen versions were good enough visually to me and I've already got my entertainment out of it.

That said, for those hold outs out there this would still be a good game to pick up if you already have a PS4 or XB One and didn't get the previous gen versions.

UltimateMaster961d ago

Wii U?
Ooops, still not getting it.
It's been out for over a year and consoles that just came out will get an HD treatment remake.
Unbelievable.

Seraphim961d ago

considering I just now bought it for $15 Black Friday and am just finally playing it.... I'll stick to the PS3 version. It is nice to see added features, PS Vita play but I don't see a reason for dropping 60 more bones on this game again. It's solid so far so if i'm bored and it's $20 maybe I'll break down eventually.... Quite frankly disappointing. They should have focused on pushing out a new entry with this engine.

EVILDEAD360961d ago

EASILY top 3 funnest game I played this year on ANY game. I loved Tomb Raider. But, I would have rather them throw in like this exclusive side story DLC ala Bioshock: Infinite or make some new puzzle bonus levels inside the game.

Either way, cool for people who buy the next gen systems and didn't get to play this gem.

NeloAnjelo961d ago (Edited 961d ago )

It was a great game. Sales doesn't equal quality.

By Square's ridiculous "forecast" it underperformed. However the game sold millions and much better than other franchises under Square. This and Sleeping Dogs were fantastic and good for the industry.

Not everything has to be COD and GTA numbers wise.

nukeitall960d ago

It is sad, when a GOTY performed poorly. I hope Eidos gives us a cheap $10 upgrade on next generation console, since I bought the digital version of Tomb Raider on Xbox 360.

Still haven't had time to try it.

@pope It sold over 4 million copies. Which is very hard to do.

Stsonic961d ago (Edited 961d ago )

Will it have dat sexy TressFX hair rendering AMD technology?

http://www.youtube.com/watc...

EDIT - Thanks I look forward to seeing dat sexy hair all over again.

Spenok961d ago

Maybe if you read the article you would know.

...(yes, yes it will)

vulcanproject961d ago (Edited 961d ago )

I'll be honest tress fx looks weird in the game more than it seems natural. It flicks around and seems a bit distracting quite a lot. Not to mention when every other character you see in the game is noticeably less follically endowed there is rather a stark contrast.

I left it turned on but I'm not sure what it exactly adds, apart from sometimes having Lara appear as if she had the spawn of cousin itt sat on her head having random seizures

BallsEye961d ago (Edited 961d ago )

"fully rebuilt game for next gen"
Fully rebuilt my @ss.

higher settings version like on PC, that's what it is.
Still a great game tho.

Back-to-Back961d ago

svoulis961d ago

Will only consider getting this if it's in fact 60fps 1080p. Tressfx was pretty taxing onpc so we'll see

bjmartynhak961d ago

1080p, more eye candy, more effects.
No, it won't be 60 fps.

Maybe high 30-45 fps, like Killzone SF

MidnytRain961d ago

Variable frame rates aren't going to be the norm.

NeloAnjelo961d ago

So? Framerate doesn't determine quality.

curtis92961d ago

Why on earth would that be a prerequisite for this game? I just.... whatever dude.

Are_The_MaDNess961d ago

TressFX isnt Taxing on the PC anymore.....
tho the DOF is really badly optimized in that game.

Back-to-Back961d ago

Well you are wrong. Why must console only owners comment on pc features?

Proof: http://gamingbolt.com/tomb-...

Stsonic961d ago (Edited 961d ago )

It should be 1080p/60. My 7950 toasted this game.

thezeldadoth961d ago

tressfx wasn't really taxing at all

If you never played it well worth a play. The multiplayer is kinda garbage but playable.

KwietStorm961d ago

Lol well is it garbage or playable? I can't put those both in the same sentence, though from every video I saw, it did look like a crappy me-too Uncharted multiplayer. I never played the game though, so I might get it for the story.

ricochetmg961d ago

You just gotta play it its kinda like a crappy uncharted like multiplayer in which I like but it was a good effort.

Are_The_MaDNess961d ago

really like the new Lara, the new Meshes and Textures does alot to her for detail.
hope they dont cheap out on the PC guys, hopefully they can just patch it for us.

Eldyraen961d ago

As much as I'd like that to happen I don't see Square even thinking of doing that for PC crowd.

I'll probably rent the definitive version when it comes out though just because I did enjoy TR but not buying a new version as PC could hold me over just fine all things considered. I still don't think its a bad thing they 'ported'/updated it for new consoles as could get a few more sales and it is actually a very good game.

Are_The_MaDNess961d ago

yeah, i have a feeling about it aswell. they would never do anything nice for the PC crowd oven tho we have been here from the start and is still here.

well its a simple mod with Texmod like all the other tombraider games, they will be able to rip the data from the new game no matter what.
just wish they did something nice for a change without needing to mod the game ourselfs.

Eamon961d ago

So what's the difference between this and the PC version?

Are_The_MaDNess961d ago (Edited 961d ago )

new textures and meshes for the Lara model. nothing more really. they say that they have better meshes and textures in the world aswell. but comparing to what? think they meant over the old gen version and not the PC version.

on a side note, the PC version is still on Sale this very moment with all the DLC on sale aswell at 80% off. thats 10 euros for the game and less than 5 euros for all the DLC.......
or you can just skip all the Online DLC since you wont be playing a Tomb Raider game to play online anyway.

Eamon961d ago

Thanks for that! I got the surival edition + the tomb dlc for single player. Great offer!
