Xbox One Tomb Raider Definitive Edition Scoring Better than PS4 Version on Metacritic

Karam Elahi writes: "Despite some negative reaction about the Xbox One version of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition by some fans, the game seems to be a hit with reviewers, period, garnering 84 percent for the PlayStation 4 version, and 87 percent for the Xbox One version. Even though the Xbox One version is thought of as the more deficient version of the two, it still has an average that’s 3 points higher than the PlayStation 4 version." (PS4, Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, Xbox One)

Uh ohhh the framerate and resolution guys won't like this
madjedi  +   212d ago
So is that the same guys that were more than happy to explain why the ps3 versions of a multiplatform games were always inferior to xbox 360 version last gen.

The media is hilariously hypocritical this gen downplaying the xbox one getting inferior ports after shouting it to the heavens last gen.

Ps3 owners had to hear this same shit nearly all generation, so get used to it. Really considering some the bad ports ps3 got early on, you xbox guys have it pretty easy in comparison.

37 vs 13.... Not really comparable

100 vs 49.... Not really comparable

Welp PS4 had a good run /s

Edit - Like EGM1966 already explained unless it's from the same site then it's apple to oranges.

Game journalism going to be game journalism. SMH.

...so 37 PS4 reviews versus 13 X1 reviews warrants this kind of news?
BX81  +   212d ago
They should've claimed this came from an inside source and posted on Neogaf 1st then it would be believable.
madjedi  +   212d ago
Except you are responsible if you post false information on gaf, this place gave up on moderation yrs ago.
BX81  +   211d ago
How dare you sir, some of the news on this site is credible as it was the day before.
DinoNYC  +   212d ago
I'd make a comment about this, but no matter what N4G is going to hit that 'disagree' button.
Kivespussi  +   212d ago
You DID make a comment and we sure are clicking that disagree button.
DinoNYC  +   212d ago
N4G trolls proved my point...

In the end, people just want new games to play.

Are you kidding me? 37-3 for PS4 and Xbox One 12-1. Of course The score is going to be higher in their favor. What the hell, this isn't even news it's just click bait.
TearsOfARapper  +   212d ago
Well now that this has been posted, everyone with no life is going to make sure that changes.
yewles1  +   212d ago
Actually, this brings up a more serious situation: Why ARE there 37 PS4 reviews and 13 X1 reviews? THIS IS A MULTIPLAT!!!
GribbleGrunger  +   212d ago
It was completely the opposite last generation which is why a lot of 360 titles got lower Metarcritic scores ... Oh the irony.
admiralvic  +   212d ago
"Actually, this brings up a more serious situation: Why ARE there 37 PS4 reviews and 13 X1 reviews? THIS IS A MULTIPLAT!!!"

How is this serious?

Every game is going to be reviewed by different people with those people requesting different versions. Just because XYZ might have been requested more shouldn't matter. This is also based off the number of sites that covered it and are Metacritic. A lot of sites are not on MC, but get review copies, so there are some things to explain this and it is pretty pointless regardless.

Because Square Enix sent out the best version for review, which is the PS4 version. Those who reviewed the X1 version probably bought it themselves or specifically requested that version.
ChiTownDoc  +   212d ago
Here's what we know:

TR: DE looks better on PS4 than XB1. Everything else is the same.

cruzngta  +   212d ago
MS has a lot of desperate people out there trying to find ANY THING and spin it to their liking to make them look a little better but at the end of the day - sharper textures and a much higher framerate on average gives the PS4 an easy win with this game. Only a delusional biased fool would think otherwise.
TristanPR77  +   212d ago
On metacritic lol

On visuals and power, the PS4 is superior and it has been state by many reviewers.
parentsbasement  +   212d ago
50 people total ?......out of how many sold?.....way to small a sample to come up with anything really
heisenberguk  +   212d ago
Just an attention junkie looking for a hit!!
Kennytaur  +   212d ago
Metacritic is and has always been somewhat rubbish, this is no surprise. I'm willing to guess most review-copies were XO as well.

Last gen port wars.

True. Who cares last gen port?
feraldrgn  +   212d ago
More people bought this game for PS4.

Way to spin the ratios.

oh geez. i feel this may be a little spark to fuel a larger fire.
BX81  +   212d ago
I doubt it. The people who think this info means something aren't smart enough to start fires.
gamertk421  +   212d ago
Must be the superior controller.
BDG  +   212d ago
2 + 2 = 4

(now lets see how many disagrees i get lol)
jacksjus  +   212d ago
This writer is an idiot. 3 times as many people voted for the PS4 version. So in other words no one really even bothered to review it on XOne except for a few generous writers. Smh!
LogicStomper  +   212d ago
Lol. Love the 'just so' argument going on here just to fit your agenda.

What's Metacritic?
jacksjus  +   212d ago
Not to mention the XOne version received the bottom worst scores from none other than XBox publications. Ban this writer for waisting people's time.
