The Co-op Podcast 87: Will Rise of the Tomb Raider Be Uncharted For Xbox?

Gary Swaby at The Koalition writes: On episode 87 of The Co-op Podcast We discuss Phil Spencer's comments about wanting an Uncharted like game on the Xbox platform. This is what lead them to the decision of paying Square Enix to make Rise of the Tomb Raider exclusive, but will the game be able to achieve everything Naughty Dog has in their blockbuster IP? Will the fact that it's also releasing on the Xbox 360 hold it back from achieving greatness? We discuss it in length.

Are people forgetting already that it was confirmed as timed exclusive?

Phil compaired the deal to the Dead Rising 3 deal

Mr Pumblechook1249d ago

I'm looking forward to the PC and PlayStation version of this. I won't be buying the Xbox version because it will encourage Phil Spencer to keep using Bill Gates money to restrict games from the biggest next-gen community.

Rise of the Tomb Raider is a cross-gen game so I doubt it will technically be as able to hit graphical heights of Uncharted 4 which has been designed to work on one console and take advantage of its features.

sonarus1249d ago

so is dead rising 3 timed as well?

If i had to choose between uncharted and tomb raider i will choose uncharted everytime.

The real problem with this deal is that Square Enix is going to release some sort of definitive edition of the game 6 months to a year later. That version will be $60 on all platforms including the Xbox One. So essentially, the 2015 version will just be the beta version of the game and Square Enix will take all of the feedback and additional content and release the game again to the Xbox One people and everyone else.

That's a really sleazy move and sets a terrible president if they are profitable. For that reason I won't even buy the game when it comes to PC and PS4. Essentially, the Xbox One consumers will be treated like beta testers while paying full price for the game and having the game marketed as being a finished product. That really isn't okay at all. I think people better be very careful about how they spend their money in regards to this Tomb Raider game, otherwise we will see these shady practices resurface.

I don't care if TR wasn't an exclusive in any form. i want UC4 a zillion times more than TR.

I definitely liked the writing better in Uncharted 3 than TombRaider reboot. But I enjoyed the gameplay in TombRaider reboot more than Uncharted 3. Both awesome adventure games. Can't wait to play both Uncharted 4 and Rise of the TombRaider!

SwiffEpics1249d ago

We're not forgetting, we're just discussing the statement that Phil Spencer himself made, he said he wants an Uncharted like game and that's why they sought after Tomb Raider.

ScorpiusX1249d ago

But not carved in stone, besides the deal can be restructured to allow a buy of the IP.
who know such a clause can already be in the contract just a mattress of time .

Simple answer no, you don't just buy something like Uncharted

I was looking on eBay the other day to buy some decent headphones (i'm a music freak) and I noticed China sells LOADS of cheap headphones, extremely cheap

It's the same logic, I could of bought buy some real cheap headphones, but i'd rather pay abit more on a trusted manufacturer and have QUALITY sounding headphones

I ended buying Sennheiser Momentums btw (Amazon)

Imalwaysright1249d ago

No it isn't the same logic. That would be implying that the TR reboot is bad game which just simply isn't true.

Double Toasted1249d ago (Edited 1249d ago )

Thank you. Well said!

Inzo1249d ago

Well, its not a great game.

Hellsvacancy1249d ago (Edited 1249d ago )

I didn't say the headphones from China were bad, obviously they do the job, sound isn't that hard to hear, they were just not as good quality wise

Imalwaysright1248d ago (Edited 1248d ago )

No, of course not... but you did say that chinese headphones are "extremely cheap" and that their makers aren't to be trusted and don't make things with "QUALITY". What's funny is that the headphones that you bought could have been made in China since Sennheiser has a factory there.

Dlacy13g1249d ago

It already is. Tomb Raider reboot gave xbox fans a taste of an Uncharted like game, that will continue with RTR.

This is a good post about a gaming podcast.
