Not so sure, the examples of timed exclusives given by Phil Spencer all just went to PC

Blacksand11191d ago (Edited 1191d ago )

Who care its timed are on Xbone? UC4 coming, that's what i'm waiting on.

nX1191d ago

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.

Master-H1191d ago (Edited 1191d ago )

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.

Speak_da_Truth1191d ago

yeah no way I'm buying it new rental or used for me too.

thecowsaysmoo1191d ago

Phil Spencer confirmed Microsoft is publishing the game.

Skips1191d ago (Edited 1191d ago )

Hell, wouldn't be too surprised if both Ryse and Dead Rising 3 also eventually made it onto PS4.

Lawboy21191d ago

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."

Same here. My money is going to some other developer who wants his game on all systems.

GiggMan1191d ago

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 is exactly what will happen.

DoubleM701191d ago

It's not coming period to PS4. Let's move on and worry about what is coming to the PS4.

the_dark_one1191d ago

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

DoubleM701190d ago

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.

spacedelete1191d ago

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.

DJustinUNCHAIND1191d ago (Edited 1191d ago )

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.

the_dark_one1191d ago

except those 2 are published bu microsoft and tomb raider is not. simple as 1+1

Lawboy21191d ago (Edited 1191d ago )

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.

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

DarkZane1191d ago

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.

Skips1191d ago (Edited 1191d ago )

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.
