Okay, Xbox Got Tomb Raider; What Can PlayStation Go Get?

Now that Microsoft has secured timed exclusivity for the new Tomb Raider, one wonders: If Sony was so inclined, which franchise should THEY grab?

The story is too old to be commented.

For realistic shooter platformers? Uncharted 4. :P For third party exclusives I think we have plenty of indie stuff. Dreamfall is now a Playstation exclusive and No Man's Sky is still console exclusive on PS4. Plus many third party games will still perform better on PS4 than XB1 unless developer choose to create console parity.

jackanderson19851380d ago (Edited 1380d ago )

should be noted Dreamfall is also coming to PC

also has No Man's Sky officially been ruled out for the X1 yet?

randomass1711380d ago

Sorry! Should have said console exclusive for both. So far I've heard no announcements for No Man's Sky on Xbox One but I think that has to do with the devs wanting to focus on what platform at a time. It could also be XB1 not having acting VR support.

There was a rumor that Sony tried to buy Hello Games before the reveal of No Man's Sky and try to make it a PS4 exclusive but they wanted to do the PC version so I'm sure the deal they made with Hello Games is console exclusivity.

Sony should just spend money in bringing games to PlayStation like it's doing now, taking a game away from another platform dose nothing for the PS4 owner.

It's late Summer 2014...
RoaTR releases Fall 2015...
I'm sure Sony will have lots of limited time exclusives between now and then.

Ezz20131378d ago

sony should not moneyhat multiplat games
they should keep making their own exclusives

How many copies of Tomb Raider were they going to sell on PS4 next holiday season with everyone playing Uncharted?

They were probably better off waiting until 2016.

k3rn3ll1380d ago

True. TR will probably come out in September or October with a huge PR push by MS. That way they can then do the same for Halo5. Square Enix can then turn around and release TR in 2016 on PS4 and PC. Really kinda smart business for 5 hem although they are catching grief. Too many people get too emotionally attached to a specific Console that when something gets taken away they feel like it's a personal attack and freak.

This business is getting more expensive each year for AAA blockbuster devs. They have to be more precise than ever in their business tactics. That's why we are having less game launches each year that are AAA. Expect to see stuff like this to increase in time so the big companies can ensure profits.

Side note : mass effect? Haha good joke author. Sony isn't gonna get anything special from EA for a long time after their recent slights towards them

Hehe Dreamfall was funded by PC gamers on kickstarter.

It was only at Gamescom that PS4 version was announced.

Dreamfall Chapters is part of a series of adventure games which started with The Longest Journey on PC followed by Dreamfall: The Longest Journey.

Dreamfall Chapters is the end of the trilogy which is broken up into 2 parts.

We talking about AAA exclusives no indie games

BallsEye1379d ago

What ps4 and ps3 misses is a game that you can play for years to come and keep on getting better at it. I mean something on a scale of Halo where you have all the championships, tournaments every month and massive community that supports and plays the game 8 years after release. A game that actually feels as epic. A game where skill actually matters (If you're really good at halo, you can have 3 people shooting you in the back, and still can turn around and kill them) Don't get me wrong, there are some amazing franchises on PS but when playing them, I have never felt like I'm a part of something as huge as Halo or even Gears of War. I usually play the game for 2 weeks and then just leave it. Killzone tried to get there, but never reached even the level of GoW. I do remember awesome nights when playing socom...too bad it died.

Yep, a lot of HALO love in my post, but it's well deserved. I'd love a game of same epicness on ps4. No, Destiny doesn't even compare (great game but totally different, even in pvp).

If Sony wanted exclusive GTA for the PS4, they would have to sell the whole company to get it.

AngelicIceDiamond1380d ago

Talk about making the problem worse.


I don't get it either... People are complaining about MS getting TR not because it's MS, but for the move itself, that had been pretty clear! Sony "taking revenge" would make no sense and hurt their newfound massive popularity more than anything else... Sure some push-over fanboys would cheer about it, but not most gamers, it seens people are getting fed up with all the crap the gaming industry had been rolling on this last gen.

After people had been more outspeaking against flaws within their favorite companies consoles and games, I'm here hoping the DLC/season pass and multiplayer paywalls trends hidden within full priced 60 bucks games take the heat next and some idiot want companies to do more shaddy business instead of just selling us the games square? Man... Sometimes I just wish those people would get cast out of the gene pool for good.

Benjammin251380d ago

I mean, what's the big deal? PS4 will be getting Tomb Raider. We don't need to 'get' anything.

MysticStrummer1380d ago (Edited 1380d ago )

@Oreo - Well, when the recent NPD numbers came out, one bitter XB fan did congratulate all the Sony fans here and said we were amazing, so apparently we are in fact part of a collective called Sony Playstation.

OT - Sony doesn't have to do anything in response to a timed exclusive. They're already bringing more games than the competition anyway.

rarity1380d ago (Edited 1380d ago )

Sony's first party's are pretty talented they don't need to "go get " anything. (I realized the title said go get)

antbolton891380d ago

They don't need to get anything their first party studios are good enough, third party exclusives are just an annoyance for all gamers
