Then can we stop with the articles every 10 seconds then? Since it's not a big deal.

Obviously it is or there wouldn't dozens of articles about it on N4G.

Which begs the question; what happened to reports of duplicate stories? I guess that's just for true stories like almost $900,000,000 the MS Hardware division made last quarter.

@ Aviator, fear of the truth

I do keep wondering why the mods never allowed those stories about ms making a profit for xbox last quarter to be approved...

Those $400 million loss articles were completely false and the mods approved those... Strange.

But OT: To the author, if you don't think it's a big deal then stop writing about it. Writing about it only serves to increase publicity.

Same reason neogaf bans and deletes threads of anything not related to PS4.

It's only a big deal in the eyes of a Sony fanboy, no one else cares. If anyone wants to play it they can, this is America, and you can do the things you want to if you work for them.

Fall Of The Tomb Raider is a big deal, because it could kill the franchise.

Agreed. The more people talk about it, the bigger the deal it is...

rmw2hot871498d ago

Its not a big deal to me because im playing it day one. definitely one of my most anticipated games next year.

Kurisu1498d ago (Edited 1498d ago )

I'm also going to play it day one...the first day it releases on PS4. It's still a much anticipated game, and I look forward to eventually playing it. Sure I've got to wait a bit longer to play it, but there's plenty for me to play in the mean time.

This is my reflection on it. So ROTTR is exclusive to X1.

I think MS wants to compete with Uncharted 4. Ok which is fine.


When exactly does Halo 5 Guardians release? I mean surely MS has faith in Halo 5 Guardians to potentially go up against UC. And that's assuming Halo Launches around the same time period.

Fable Legends, Rise OF The TombRaider, Quantum Break and Halo 5 are the biggest games to release next year.

Maybe Halo 5 doesn't release around UC so they need TombRaider to compete?

Its all interesting.

AutoCad1498d ago

halo 5 going up against uncharted lol?

its not gonna be close,its more like tomb raider going up against uc in the holidays..Same genre of game.

Ging_Freecs1498d ago

Lol I guess somebody forgot that halo is one of the best selling franchise of all time xD. Dont be a fanboy please and just enjoy the games because there is no doubt UC4 will be amazing and will sell well. So will ROTR and Halo.

iDadio1498d ago

The biggest games to release next year on X1*

Just to clarify before the mob jumps on you.

mhunterjr1498d ago

Halo and uncharted are nothing alike. Tomb raider and uncharted are cut from similar cloths, which is where the idea of this bring a move against Uncharted comes from.

Petebloodyonion1498d ago

Nah MS don't want ROTTR to compete with UC4 in 2015
Ms just want to make sure that ROTTR won't be available for Christmas on PS4 to provide the Solution for ps4 lack of Uncharted type game in 2015.

I'll be quite honest, I'd be surprised if Halo 5 releases next holiday season. It was just announced last E3, and it was a very basic teaser trailer which means it was probably very early in production, so that would mean the development time would be barely over 2 years. That seems rather a short time for them to create a full on MP experience, along with what will have to be a super solid SP experience and story. The fact that nothing was shown this year outside yet another teaser trailer(CGI for that matter) leads me to believe it's taking a while to get going.

MS said that it would release in Q3 of 2015, so it would actually be coming out before the holiday season, so from that I can assume it may possibly be further along than I believe and MS is just holding back. But if it is Q3, then they aren't looking at making it go up against anything that we currently know about, as that would what is traditionally considered the Summer months...unless they release it at the end of September.

I think TR is definitely there to compete against UC if Halo releases early Q3, or later. It's the most direct comparison of a game that could be releasing at the same time. Whereas Halo or COD fans may not be that into TR or UC, so there's no need for MS to concern themselves over it. If MS were ready to have a Gears of War by next holiday, I'm sure TR would never have been timed.

It makes sense for Halo to release early-mid Q3 though. It's typically a dry time for games, and it's possible for a stand out title to sell a lot without any competition(see TLOU:R for reference). It would gain the advantage of that dry spell need for a big game, and then continue to sell a lot through the holiday season, thus making more money overall.

Why is everyone freaking out??? It WILL COME TI PS4!!! It is a TIMED exclusive!!!!

ThinkThink1498d ago

I think it is as well, just a matter of when. Would you still want it if it exclusivity window was 1 year?

sashimi1498d ago (Edited 1498d ago )

But Destiny Ps4 exclusive dlc + timed dlc is right? smh

EDIT: Lol i own a ps4 so yeah sure i'm so pissed bungie/activision went with Sony /s

just saying at least destiny releases on all platforms regardless of dlc or not. While SE/M$ is willing deny 70%+ of Lara's PS/PC fanbase but yet ppl saying its not a big deal, just business lol

k3rn3ll1498d ago

Yea I don't understand why everyone freaks out about this but doesn't care when watch dogs and Destiny have exclusive content. The hypocrisy is Alive and well

barb_wire1498d ago

Nah, you're just pissed that Bungie went with Sony and not Microsoft.. bet you'd be singing a very different tune if the Destiny deal favored Microsoft.

Rimeskeem1498d ago

1. It's DLC and Xbox has that with halo and bf
2. The game is coming out on all platforms at the same time
