The new Tomb Raider will be exclusive to Xbox platforms for some time but when it finally does come to PlayStation 4, we can expect the best version.
Not so sure, the examples of timed exclusives given by Phil Spencer all just went to PC
Who care its timed are on Xbone? UC4 coming, that's what i'm waiting on.
I can't get excited for Tomb Raider simply because it's cross gen... even Batman skips last gen and Rocksteady said numerous times why they made that decision. There is no way Tomb Raider is coming close to Uncharted 4, bad move from Microsoft regardless from which angle you look at it.
In those examples, MS did the publishing, in this case Square Enix is, if it does come i will snatch a used copy or rental if the game turned out good.
yeah no way I'm buying it new rental or used for me too.
Phil Spencer confirmed Microsoft is publishing the game.
Hell, wouldn't be too surprised if both Ryse and Dead Rising 3 also eventually made it onto PS4.
I'm going to respon like I did below....these are the words of Phil spencer "Now, obviously if I'm going to partner on it, I'm a platform holder, I'm hardly going to invest to go make the PlayStation version of any game. It is a business. So when we go invest with a partner on a big franchise, we're going to come with certain needs we have out of the relationship. But the thing people should take away, it's been a relationship we built over many years, and the partnership has been strong and we want to help make the franchise great. But if we're going to do that there are certain things to us as a platform holder we're going to do. I don't own the IP. So then when certain people start talking to me about, well, what is the future of the Tomb Raider franchise, it's not really something I can talk to. Just like if you were going to ask me what's going on with Dead Rising 6, I don't own that. So, when people want me to say, well can you tell us when or if it's coming to other platforms, it's not my job. My job is not to talk about games I don't own. I have a certain relationship on this version of Tomb Raider, which we announced. And I feel really good about our long term relationship with Crystal and Square." http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
I wouldn't buy it.
Same here. My money is going to some other developer who wants his game on all systems.
Yeah I think my life will go on without it too. I know people who where pro xbox 360 who didn't bite and buy a PS3 for Uncharted. I seriously don't think people are going to buy a Xbox One for Tomb Raider. Plus there is a chance of it coming to other platforms also so it's really no big deal. I don't see why people are sweating it.
This would go down as one of the worst deals of the generation if it didn't would be a no win situation for everyone involved,Microsoft throws money at a pointless timed exclusive,Square Enix looses money on smaller install base and Tomb Raider as a franchise takes a big slap in the face,I definitely see it coming to PS4 in the future but how well it will do remains to be seen.
"This would go down as one of the worst deals of the generation if it didn't would be a no win situation for everyone involved,Microsoft throws money at a pointless timed exclusive,Square Enix looses money on smaller install base and Tomb Raider as a franchise takes a big slap in the face." This is exactly what will happen.
It's not coming period to PS4. Let's move on and worry about what is coming to the PS4.
You must be fun at party's xD. i would believe that it wasnt coming to ps4 if was microsoft was publishing it but it isnt and should know i SE is they care more about the money then you
Any game that's being funded by microsoft will not make it to the PS4. Just like TitanFall will never coming to the PS4. TitanFall 2 is diffferent story. Why do you all care so much about this IP. Sony bought exclusive rights for Tomb Raider 2 back in the day. Get over it lets move on.
stfu seriously. by the time Tomb raider releases in 2015 the PS4 will have over 20 million consoles sold. you Xbox trolls must be in denial that you bought an expensive brick. enjoy all your inferior console with almost zero worthwhile games and worser ports.
Let's not count our tombs before they're raided. Spencer said the deal was similar to Ryse and Dead Rising 3, neither of which have been brought to PS4 or been announced as such. @the_dark_one Titanfall was published by EA, so you're logic is flawed.
except those 2 are published bu microsoft and tomb raider is not. simple as 1+1
This one is sort of published by Microsoft as well ....read this carefully and take what u want this is what Phil spencer said "But the thing people should take away, it's been a relationship we built over many years, and the partnership has been strong and we want to help make the franchise great. But if we're going to do that there are certain things to us as a platform holder we're going to do. I don't own the IP.

He said there was a duration in the contract but most contracts have a duration....from software contract with SOE probably has a duration (the duration may be forever but there is still a duration term in the contract).... ppl are just pulling what they want from what he said
It's not published by Microsoft. Crystal Dynamics is developing it and Square-Enix is publishing it. Microsoft just threw some money around. Square-Enix wasn't satisfied with the sales of the first one and it was on PS3/360/PC, with each of those platforms having a bigger install base than all 3 current-gen consoles combined at the moment. As soon the deal is up, it's coming to PS4 and PC. Hell, PS4 and PC version are probably being developed at the same time as the Xbox One version and will probably be finished at the same time, just waiting for the deal to be over. They can make a lot more money than what microsoft paid them, so yeah it's happening. Also, even if Microsoft was the publisher, this would only be a port, so you'd need a new publisher to release it on PS4.
The thing is. With Titanfall and Microsoft, they flat out said they had a full console exclusivity deal over the first Titanfall. Definitely not so with Tomb Raider. There is a reason why he had to say "there is a duration". If it were full lifetime console exclusive, they'd be screaming it from the rooftops and not cherry pick their words like "exclusive, in 2015" unlike Titanfall.
Oh its coming to ps4, and you can bet the ps4 will have the superior definitive edition, we all know by now the bone is a weak console. I still won't buy it though, i never support greed
Wow, what a contradiction at the end.
This is def coming to ps4 and i cant wait...yeeeeeeeee
Anyone who actually believes this won't come to PS4 as soon as the exclusivity time period ends is a fool.
i personaly dont care since i get uncharted 4 and naughty dog new secret ip
Um no, PC version would be best
"We can expect the best version".. If you get your head up your arse any deeper you'll be able to taste your own colon. What you need to realise is that while the Xbox One gets the game first I'd also advise you to expect a definitive edition to be multiplatform. That's includes PC and Xbone along side your PS4.
you know whats good about all this ? naughty dog knows now about TB and they will make uncharted 4 even better and show once and for all to fail Microcrap,CD and square money who is the the fcking boss deal with it haters uncahrted is the KING of the genre and there is nothing ms can do about it
I enjoyed the first one on my PS4 so I can't wait to play the second one on it. :) I was a little mad about the delay but I will have Uncharted to play while I wait for Tomb raider for the PS4.
Damn another tomb raider article, move on already its done. It suposedly is an ok franchise anyway, plus square went to MS for funding for a bigger game. Don't see what the issue is, people always claim greed but don't knwo how business work. Especially when you employ & need to pay people. Everyone thinks hoing miltiplat is the better choice, well I got news, for SE it wasn't. Its cost to make multiple games for multiple systems & advertise said games. Which during the 1st they barely broke even, going exclusive cuts those platforms in half, with MS doing the advertising & supplying more funding for the right to exclusive durstion. In business there is always a trade off, people have no Idea what greed is until they wonder why companies fail & go out of business. Guess they should have been greedy to get every dime they can get to stay a float.
Desperation article. It's only going to pc after xbox one.
lets see em cr6 when we get a better experances ie 60fos dlc etc
Why don't people get over timed exclusive? It's just a ha game. . Ps4 OWNER make themselves look like a bunch of whiners. Any good news for MS. Their responses are the same. Whaa whaa .. understandable for a day or two.. but with them it's a week minimum or until the next time good news come from Ms again. This look bad on gamers in general but since the Ps4 has the better hardware I guess that makes them feel entitled.
So you're saying Xbone owners wouldn't react the same way if Mass Effect 4 were to become a Sony exclusive? Hmm.
Yes and no. Yes they will react. No it's less than likely to drag on for weeks. Example Destiny's 1 years exclusive content... I know it's different from a entire game. Other platform gamers didn't drag their tears on for weeks. PS4 extremist has this all or nothing attitude which is not healthy for the industry.
Stop with this article's already, this game is not coming to PS4, there are other TR games coming to other platforms, but this one is Xbox only. Maybe PC at a later time.
Are you pissed? Lol
@reko - He's deranged. "Stop with this article's already…"
PS4 is only getting Tomb Raider and the Temple of Osiris. Phil mentioned that he cannot put money in a game that will go to a competing platform "business 101" which is even a stipulation in the contract and he even goes on to say the investment in this one is big. Timed for windows? yes not PS4.
That's fine if it never came to PS4 because that would be Square Enix's loss for making such a dumb decision. Uncharted 4 will be a better game anyway.
