In speaking with the Executive Producer for Crystal Dynamics, the developer behind the upcoming Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, Scot Amos shares his thoughts on developing for these new systems.
Then do Rise of the Tomb Raider on PS4
We love what we can do with these boxes apparently not. you just love plain hard cash
We love what we can do with these boxes. We love it so much were just gonna do it on one box. Xbox.
Honestly it's best for them to simply not say anything until after Rise of the Tomb Raider comes out, and the whole fiasco is over.
As all developers do but it wasn't their decision to make TR timed exclusive.
lol at gamers defending all of their 3rd party exclusives in other threads, while at the same time wanting 3rd party developers to stop making theses stupid deals. I agree 3rd party exclusivity is lame, yet everyone still contributes to it in many other threads.
A business is a business but we as gamers tend to treat them like friends but they aren't. If you ran an expensive business and you was offered a truck load of cash to take you product somewhere first would you honestly turn it down?
Not going to happen it has a duration with MS for one year to possibly 3 years buy a Xbox One or play it on Xbox 360 get over it
3 years? You can possibly believe that. It will a year max, or never.
No one signs a temporary exclusivity deal for 3 years. No one. The smallest exclusive deal a company signs is a week the longest is usually about a year. Now sometimes the deal states a game can't even start development until that time sometimes it states it can't release until that time. You will not see any company sign a temporary deal for 3 years that is just stupid. The average is about a month to a year. I would say we are looking at 6 months give or take a month earlier or later.
Then RIP tomb raider, because there's no way this would make me buy the Bone.
Don't worry CD. Gamers are going to show you just how much they "love" how you've treated the owners of different consoles. So enjoy the sales reaction from them. You've earned it.
^^^This! Which is exactly why they felt a need to come forward with a statement as such. See that's the thing when you realize that you've made a bad calll in a decision you've made, the longer you wait to rectify it, the more you tend to minimize the value of others connected to or involved in you making that bad call or, decision.
Please most complaining will be playing Uncharted 4 to even bother with TR or even care it's out.
Nope, I'm sure Tomb Raider release date will coincide with Uncharted 4, that is the reason Microsoft bought it. So it will be probably Q1 2016 or way after Uncharted 4 and when it comes out I will not buy it.
"Please most complaining will be playing Uncharted 4 to even bother with TR or even care it's out." - Wow! That's a mighty wide brush you paint with. Did TR sell bbetter on Sony platforms? Why use such generalizations in...oh wait. I looked at your history. You're using hyperbole as a form of damage control. I await your edit.
@lLostDjinn no need to edit the truth, as to why it sold better cause their was no uncharted available at the time.
well pc is being excluded aswell and they dont have uncharted
I'll play it but this is when buying pre-owned games come in handy.
Thats my plan too. i rarely buy 2nd hand games, if I want it, I get it day one, but this is one Im going to purchase used.
Precisely. I will not deprive myself of a great gameplay experience. However, I will not be giving them my hard earned money. I support devs and have decided, this generation, to only but used when a developer does something which I do not want to support. Otherwise it is not worth saving a few dollars, while taking away money from the devs.
You should just take PS4 out of the equation since you sold out to Microsoft. Just saying I would've loved to play the new Tomb Raider but you took that away.
I can't wait to play this on my Xone, this is a timed exclusive so enough with the hate, it's going to come to the PS4. Too bad the Wii U CPU is trash to handle this game.
That hasnt been announced yet, and even if it does, will they charge full price for the privilege of playing a game 6-12 months after Xbone owners have got it? I played every Tombraider game with a Dual Shock in my hands, now I cant. The hate is warranted.
Correction: "We love what we can do with this green, free money, cash-handing-out Xbox One box." **** off, CD. I love what Naughty Dog can do better with their "box" anyways.
Ps4 doesnt need tomb raider how many times is it gonna be rehashed and redone, uc4 interests me more, so does stuff like rime and bloodborne and deep down
Uncharted 2 was always a better game than TR. Not sure why people went nuts for TR last gen.
Because it was a really good game. Not better than Uncharted 2 ( or 3 for that matter ) but still really good.
@ KakashiHotake - I had to force myself to finish it. It seemed redundant in almost every way. The only thing it did different was the skill trees. Apart from that it was mediocre.
Uncharted is going to destroy this game, mark my words.
How is it going to destroy the game when they are on different console on release? 😕 That is like saying Forza Horizon 2 will destroy Drive Clubs. Different consoles, buddy.
Wtf is a "Drive Clubs?" N00b.
We love what we can do on these boxes. We just love one box more than the other. The one that gives us the most money.
Yea..like having to struggle with resolution and FPS in 2014.
Ok the rise botched situation, they are trying to renew their ilage with PR. They are certainly afraid of the consequences of their action. They should have known that consumers that distrust a company will not gain confiance that easily. It's probably showing right now.
I'm not supporting Crystal Dynamics.
I hope rise of the tomb raider turns out great. Loved the reboot. CD don't let me down.
Chill everyone ...... its just a game..... its just money. If Microsoft wants to blow money on securing any game for their fans they have that right. Crystal Dynamics just doing business..... its not personal (although some people seem to be taking it that way ). Any business will take a sure thing over a possibility...... Even if the possibility may make them more money.... A possibility can be really risky and the gaming industry is still no sure thing. Its Microsoft everyone should be booing not Crystal Dynamic. If an idiot gives you money with little to no risk I say take it. I say this deal isn't going to hurt Crystal Dynamics that much. Besides PS4 gamers still have Uncharted 4 so really no loss....... Peace.
I hope Tomb Raider turn out to be epic because I will get it "USED" once it comes out on PS4 or PC, but I refuse to support any developer that chooses money over their fans. I understand they are in the business to make money but it's just wrong they way they did it knowing how many fans were looking forward to this game.
I really Like what CD did with the TR reboot... I started to play it on the PS3 as a PS+ free download, and was enjoying it so much, I stopped 30 mins in, knowing buying a PS4 version was warranted... I supported the Dev by doing this, so it feels like a bit of a backhand slap in my case ... Oh well, hoping the next instalment also turns out to be a good game...
Man, can that hand be anymore jammed up that puppet hole?
So much buthurt and hatred towards a studio that didn't make the decision of making TR timed exclusive. Why are you people blaming Crystal Dynamics when you should be blaming Square Enix?
