Camilla Luddington has reprised her role as Lara Croft in the upcoming Rise of the Tomb Raider game, a sequel to 2013’s reboot of the franchise.
Titanfall was also a timed-exclusive.
"Timed Xbox One Exclusive" its funny to throw that into the title
Dat timing too.
It is the pressure of all of these recently announced PS4 titles and the impending flood of news coming today from PSX that is creating these defensive articles.
Well isnt it true? If i remember correctly Phill said it was coming to other platforms as well. @Heman "I'm hardly going to invest to go make the PlayStation version of any game" He wont but Crystal Dynamics might port it over to the PS4 with what they make from the Xbox Versions. If they sell enough they will port it over especially with the PS4s user base. Thanks for confirming that it could come to other platforms.
Actually no. It's also coming to Xbox 360. Phil said exclusive to Xbox, confirming both consoles.
@BiggCMan He said the contract "has a duration", which means it could be coming to the PC/PS4.
May be PC after some time but never PS4 or PS3.Phill said it hisself.lol!!!. "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." Sweet dreams.
I don't think phil stated it's coming to other platforms, he did state the exclusivity has a duration. It would be SE's decision if they wish to pursue version's PS4, PS4 etc.
@HeMan76 Wtf? Why would Microsoft pay for them to develop a PS4 version... Phil has already said himself that the game exclusivity will "have a duration". That means that when the contract expires, Square Enix are free to do whatever the heck they want. And I don't see why they wouldn't develop a PS4/PC version when it has a larger marketshare than the XB1. Your quote is meaningless.. It pretty says "I'm Microsoft, we won't pay to make PS4 games." It has nothing to do with whether or not they'll release the PS4/PC version sometime in the future.
well its true
I was going to comment on the same thing. These articles are obviously made from fanboys. I am pretty sure Street Fighter 5 will be timed, and even though it's on PC they are claiming it an exclusive. But we can't claim Titanfall or Ryse? Sony gets away with some of the most hypocritical stuff I've seen in the gaming industry.
Won't matter a bit after the Uncharted 4 gameplay they just showed off...the Tomb Raider killer is about to snuff the reboot baby in its crib....no chance of Rise even coming close to what UC4 will offer
You mean the gameplay that stole YET ANOTHER GAMEPLAY MECHANIC (rock climbing) from the Tomb Raider franchise? Uncharted is and has always been a rip-off of Tomb Raider. And after "dat downgrade" I hardly think the fellas over at CD are worried about anything.
@Maxwell A current gen game that has been "downgraded" will still be head & shoulders above a last gen game on its best day...Tomb Raider will be a cross gen title, and considering that the first one wasn't on par visually w/ the 2nd or 3rd Uncharted games, there's not a chance in hell of Tomb Raider looking better. Uncharted plays better in my opinion & the stories are pretty unequivocally better in every aspect in the Uncharted series. Tomb Raider might have been first but Uncharted did it MUCH better. I guarantee that come release time, UC4 will house RotTR, you can take that to the bank.
@maxwell muahahahaha, denial much? "You mean the gameplay that stole YET ANOTHER GAMEPLAY MECHANIC (rock climbing) from the Tomb Raider franchise?" - yaaaa cause rock climbing is a exclusive feature from tomb raider, if thats the case then tomb raider stole the shooting and cover mechanics from uncharted cause i dont remember a tomb raider that had so many shoot out as the last one, i remember it being more of a exploration type of game with a bit of shooting. "And after "dat downgrade" I hardly think the fellas over at CD are worried about anything." - downgrade you guys keep using it, i dont think you know what it means, to be a downgrade first you need to see some gameplay and compare it to another gameplay (like watch dogs), dont go and say that was a downgrade based on a video from a different scene, lightning conditions and different scene based on a in-engine graphics video versus a video from in-game graphics. if you guys would know anything its that with games from naughty dog the in-engine cut-scenes are always of better quality then the in-game gameplay, but it doesnt mean it was a downgrade, it just hate alot of hate from all you guys. and completely denial. and how can you say guys at CD are worried about nothing? have you seen anything from Rise of the Tomb Raider? only a CGI cutscene but if you think thats in-game graphics then you must be very gullible. and yes maybe they arent worried about competing with uncharted in nov 2015 cause they are not releasing the game on ps4 other wise it would be smashed hard even releasing in the same time frame as uncharted and halo 5 its going to be over shadowed, and i can already see microsoft with bundles with both of them included and then brag about how great it sold.
cause it is
'Everything Known About Rise of the Tomb Raider: Timed Xbox One Exclusive' ...Which is pretty much nothing? /s
Yeah really what a pointless article.
Isn't it also on the 360? So not Xbox One exclusive.
Wonder if all timed Exclusives are going to be called out or is it just for Xbox . Seem somewhat a bit biases
well then enlighten us which more games out there are not being marked as time exclusives and that as being already confirmed as timed exlusives.
lol... intersting timing to release the article...
I dont care if PlayStation gets it or not tbh. Uncharted destroys tr in every way possible.
Is uncharted better? Yes. Probably. But don't forget how good tomb raider was in 2013. You'd be missing out on a great game. Hopefully ps4 gamers eventually get it.
Or how good it was for its time when it first released on SSSSEEEEEEEGGGGAAAAAAA
Do we know anything about the timed PS4 exclusive SF5?
That it's on PC, so not PS4 exclusive.
You didn't catch my sarcasm buddy
@Sm00thNinja I see it now, my bad, but I wanted to just get that out there, because most seem to forgot what makes something exclusive.
They have repeatedly said "console exclusive."
The one thing we don't know is if it's a timed exclusive. If it's more then 6 months it may as well not come out for PS4 because it won't sell.
I'll buy it. It could come out a whole year later and I still would. The reboot was a good game and I enjoyed it a lot on PS3, so I definitely want to continue the adventure on PS4.
I'm disappointed with Crystal Dynamics' decision about the game. PlayStation had been the home for the franchise until this sad news came out months ago. If 'Rise of the Tomb Raider' never makes its way to PS4, I think we better boycott the studio behind this videogame.:(
Why? Microsoft is aiding in development and funding. Dont blame crystal dynamics. This likely came from the top at square. Its possible this game needed resource help. Its a business remember
You are correct ausbo, I few months back phil stated as much, how they came to him.
Yeeeaaaa let's boycott Capcom with SF5 also it's only fair right?
When Sony make mgs4 and street fighter an exclusive Sony fans dnt panic, but when Microsoft make tomb raider an exclusive, then every Sony fan loses their minds!!!! that is hypocrisy. No way around it. You can spout ur little reasons as to why Sony is noble for making a game an exclusive and why Microsoft is evil for doing the exact same thing truth is, the Sony ponies all want to gave their cake and eat it.
Actually it debuted on Saturn and then PC before Sony money-hatted it. But nice try at revisionist history. ****king entitled Sony gamers...
It being cross-gen pisses me off more than it being a Xbox exclusive. Publishers just won't let last-gen go. And we get a downgraded game because of it.
Ahhh the joy of owning both consoles and not having to fight over crumbs. Bring on Tomb Raider, Street Fighter 5 while others fight and argue over which console is better, it won't matter to me one lick.
If you were the developers of TR, why the hell wouldn't you take a bucketload of cash from MS to make it exclusive for a time? And antone who really believes it's never coming to the competing console (PS4) is a real fool. It certainly will, why would you give up many more millions by limiting yourself to just one platform. They probably made enough from the deal to ensure a third title.
Timed exclusives should never happen with third party devs
Well after Capcom leak expect this to be a full exclusive. Guaranteed MS is not happy about taking an on going series and making it a console exclusive.
