GearNuke: "Executive Producer Scott Amos has confirmed that Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition initially started as a straight port of the PC version."
Great things about Tomb Raider Definitive Edition, Crystal Dynamics gain plenty essential experiences that better help them in developing games for the PS4.
I agree with Square. This will help them in preparing for PS4 development. Here's to hoping that they won't care about parity and push both new consoles to their limits, not letting one hold back the other. This will also help them push the new GPUs coming to PC to their limits as well.
Started out as a straight port to PC, yet PC can't get the definitive edition too? This is all just icing on the cake, nothing more.
why would you want it seriously.
Cause of the improvements to graphics and physics, I heard they gave the multiplayer a overhaul as well. Still won't be as good as Uncharted's multiplayer, cause you can't polish a turd, that is already a turd. I might be wrong lol, but I welcome them to prove me wrong on the multiplayer.
so instead of what a update patch to improve performance, you want to buy the definitive edition that switch up some textures with a performance patch. the new models are not needed. im guessing your on of the guys that that brought skins for streetfighter and mvc3
ofc it can be same on PC and much better but then, they will not sell that good. its all business..
#Webeblazing Obviously I wanted a free update for the PC version, I never said was going to buy it again lol!!!
i'd rather have had a straight port of the PC version 1080p @60 FPS, rather than this facade they are trying to pull "oh we totally re-did the character model of Lara, i mean look at next gen hair physics, look at the immaculate face of lara that looks like she has too much make-up on and totally doesn't fit the setting she is in & the 30 FPS is totally better than 60" now please pay us 60 bucks.
The did more than improve Lara's face. They improved all character models, added better lighting and particle effects. It still doesn't warrant a 60 dollar purchase though.
Read this carefully. All games do not have to be 60fps. You can get way better graphics, animations and physics in a 30fps game. Also, since Tomb Raider is a cinematic experience, 60fps would ruin that movie look. Are you upset that they're trying to improve their game? Sheesh!
And then they got to the frame rate and divided it by two. Sorry, i meant "ported". They "ported" the frame rate.
i agree with everything they said this will be a great experience for the ps4 is worth buying the game again just so i can play it with better graphics and an outstanding controller ps4 is the greatest system of the future nothing that sony does is wrong and every third party dev that supports the ps4 is on my good side good buy im ma go play some vita games so i can finish them again.
Started as a straight port of the pc version, then cut the frame rate in half lol
You beat me to it...
But improved the visuals.
consoles cant play this game at 60fps
IMO it should have stayed that way but really they should have just waited to do a true sequel. I hope they are not hoping for big sales here because not many people will be rebuying this from the reception it's got so far. The time (1 Year) and resources (3! studios) that went into this seems quite silly seeing as they just confirmed they are only going to become profitable on Tomb Raider by the end of the year.
So because they made it this way instead of a straight port they couldn't have been working on a "true sequel"??? What about those who haven't bought or played it yet? How has it had a reception when no one has even played it yet and we,ve only seen trailers, screenshots or "dev diary" type interviews/videos? Surely you can't believe the vocal negativity on the internet represents a large majority of gamers. How does it seem the time or total resources put into making it was used in a "quite silly" manner? You don't know when they started and stopped or how many people even worked on it let alone it's monetary cost. Using some people from 3 studios isn't the same as using the entirety of 3 studios resources.
"So because they made it this way instead of a straight port they couldn't have been working on a "true sequel"??? " - Not saying that but this took a year in development time that could of be more focused on the sequel. "What about those who haven't bought or played it yet?" - Fair point but IMO I don't think it's large enough to warrant this kind of development. "How has it had a reception when no one has even played it yet and we,ve only seen trailers, screenshots or "dev diary" type interviews/videos? Surely you can't believe the vocal negativity on the internet represents a large majority of gamers." - No but does have an impact in this day and age and puts things in some properspective on how it could be received. "How does it seem the time or total resources put into making it was used in a "quite silly" manner? You don't know when they started and stopped or how many people even worked on it let alone it's monetary cost. Using some people from 3 studios isn't the same as using the entirety of 3 studios resources" - Rightly so i guess that part is really guess work on my part by the fact it took about 1 year of development and 3 studios seems like it most have taken quite a bit of work.
I had a blast with it on 360 last year. However, shiny new textures don't merit a $60 price tag.
It should be a budget title.
I think I'm gonna buy this again to play it on my PS4. I almost bought the PC "last gen" version on steam before they announced the Definitive Edition and I'm glad I didn't. Face it PC people... you've been playing "last gen" console ports this entire time thinking to yourself that they're "next gen graphics" HAHAHAHA! Next gen doesn't start until the DEVELOPERS start making next gen games. Everything else is just a shinier last gen game on PC.
I'll take the $30 "last-gen" PC version over a $60 next-gen version with a different Lara model and better particle effects, because those were the only real differences between them.
