The first half of 2015 is looking a tad dull for Xbox One but the second half is simply going to be amazing.
Sweet can't wait to play them all on release day.
ori and screamride intrigue me, ori and the blind forest is a day one buy for sure though, i have already brought and played state of decay on PC so not too hyped there but will still pick it up just after screamride and ori
Its just sad this game is a timed exclusive on xbox. Because xbox community doesent appreciate good games. Look at FH 2, Sunset Overdrive with less than 1 million games sold, Project Spark less than 100k, but COD sells millions and millions...
i dont think it will be timed, not anymore anyway, with the street fighter v bombshell sony dropped on microsoft i can see MS snapping up full xbox console exclusivity if they havent already, they are even helping CD fund production of the game, it might come to PC, and if microsoft do allow it to go to other platforms they are not very smart, funding a game just to let it go to your nearest competitor with the chance of the game selling more ps4's and games, like i said not very smart, but this is all speculation of course, same with the timed exclusivity angle
They've already said there's a duration for the deal. It might mean PC, it could also mean PS4. I doubt it's a console exclusive because by now they would of capitalized on that deal and said it's a console exclusive.
Phil Spencer compared to deal to Dead Rising 3....so its coming to PC but no direct competing console. I remember Spencer saying he won't invest in games that'll end up on a direct competitors console.
MS aren't completely funding the game. I assume that they are grabbing the marketing & production costs so CD's funds can go solely to creating the game. Beyond that, would it actually be smart of MS to drop what would no doubt be a VERY lofty sum just to keep a single game from another console? Wouldn't that money be more wisely spent on a handful of diverse new games available only for their system instead of all being thrown at a single one? Money that is spent on keeping this title away from other gamers could easily be spent towards creating the next Halo or Gears of War type phenomenon whose entire franchise would be owned solely by MS instead of a single title that will be old to gamers after a year or so. Regarding the game itself, it was a bit upsetting to see that all of those early talks about opening up the world to the traditional globe trotting adventure we'd become accustomed to throughout the life of titles like TR & Uncharted was actually a bit of hyperbole and the game seems to be right back to the open world genre that the first game utilized. Honestly at this early juncture it really seems like this game is basically Tomb Raider 1.5, the Siberian environment looks just like the Japanese island environment of the last game w/ added snow to my eyes. Hopefully CD can get something impressive across at E3, otherwise they will be more deserving of all of the "uninnovative" flak that The Order got than RAD themselves. Not really seeing what separates the Xbox One version from the 360 version at all at this point from the pics & GI article, regardless of who developed either version.
@Nekro "Because xbox community doesent appreciate good games. " says who? Nekro? Did you arrive at this conclusion after years study and analysis in your secret layer under the bridge? will like to see a link confirming Project sparks sales. FH2 sold really well cos MS mentioned it in their last quarterly earnings report(Halo MCC and FH2 did great). Sunset Overdrive is a great game but not sure the figures,but im guessing it has sold a lot more copies since launch and lastly you do know Call of duty now sells better on PS4 than XboxOne (worldwide). So dont see the point of you bringing it in to fit your argument.
I know where he got those numbers from. They have an awful smell to them. These fanboys do this kind of junk all the time. There is absolutely no way of knowing how any game sold on X1, without M$ revealing the numbers. Too many games are now sold digitally.
How do you know there under a million sold there is no sales data for digital sales and if your relying on vgchartz numbers that is hilarious that you think there accurate. Also project spark is a free to play game so obviously its not going to have that many units sold. Playstation fanboys are getting really pathetic plenty of games like mlb the show over the entire life of the series 8 years has sold over a million on one console so get out of here with your nonsense.
Rise of the Tomb Raider is a looker. Really. I, however, am still sad that it is (rumored) to be a timed-exclusive.
It's a confirmed timed exclusive.
Why exactly would that be cause to be sad? Bragging rights would be the only thing I could think of & that should be worth exactly nothing to a fan of gaming. Or I guess PS4 gamers could be sad its not coming to their console for some unspecified period of time (likely a year or 2 at most) but after seeing the early coverage I'm fine by it. Can't really get any kind of feel whether or not it truly is a looker based solely off of a cinematic trailer sans gameplay & a handful of static bullshots from a magazine that could also be taken from any cinematic portion. I'll reserve judgment until I see the actual game in action on release. At the end of the day, for my tastes as someone who has played pretty much every title in either franchise, Uncharted will be the superior title in every way & this early coverage only cements that feeling for me.
I do agree that Uncharted will be superior in most aspects. We, however, need a game like Rise of the Tomb Raider, because Crystal Dynamics has put the franchise on a much better spectrum with the latest praised by critics and gamers.
@zizi I could see that. I definitely don't begrudge MS for wanting a game of this ilk or its gamers for being excited for it, but I personally just wish they would've thought of that a couple years back & started the ball rolling on their own brand new title that could potentially be even better than the TR reboot was or even better than Uncharted 4 could be. I personally think that that's what Xbox needs much more than TR...they need exclusive ip's that they actually own from the outset. With Microsoft's funds they could've made an amazing pulpy Action/Adventure game instead of just grabbing someone else's that was bound for the platform either way. I guess I wish MS would just continue w/ their bread & butter by focusing on online mp focused titles, OR make an actual play towards diversifying their gaming portfolio w/ true exclusive sp games similar to these to give fans of these games a true reason to buy their console.
I am really looking forward to Ori i can't wait to play it next month.
Exclusives are the reason for this fighting between gamers #Multiplatform FTW!!!!!!!
I am really looking forward to this game. It's sad that it wont come to PS4 at the same time as on XBO. It's going to be irritating having to wait. But to get the best version with all the dlc will in the end be worth it.
I'm sure Rise of the Tomb Raider will be a great game but it's not gonna make the same profit as the first game since the first game was on every platform. When crystal dynamic and square enix realize this they will regret it just like what happen to Titan Fall and now the sequel is coming to the ps4 lol. I also believe Uncharted will make way more money and profit than Tomb raider because Sony PS4 has a stronger install base and selling way more than the Xbone.Ps4 is almost ahead by 15 million consoles sold.
errrm..hypocrite much I'm sure Streetfighter 5 will be a great game but it's not gonna make the same profit as the previous game since the previous game was on every platform. When Capcom realizes this they will regret it. you see what i did there? also WTH? What happened to Titanfall? last time i checked MS bailed the devs out when they needed cash to finish the game and it sold really well across 3 platforms (mainly xbox one) http://1080players.com/inde... ".Ps4 is almost ahead by 15 million consoles sold" where do you guys pull these BS numbers from? yeah its ok to favor a particular brand over the other but this level of FBism borders on going full retard.
@Kingscorpion The PS4 has not sold almost 15 million more consoles than the X1. According to Sony, the LTD sales as of January 3rd were at 18.5 million - there's no way the X1 had LTD sales under 4 million for the same time period.
wow, your comment is just beyond stupid.
Its time you stop living in la la land and come back to the real world as ps4 has just over 18 million sold to 11 million xbox ones
Can't disagree with any of that. Looks great, but it's not like any other platform will be left wanting for games at any stage this year or going forward anyway.
I think it was a smart move for all parties that tomb raider is a holiday exclusive. For MS they get a great adventure game they can say only on the x1 this holiday, for crystal dynamics is great that they'll have MS fund the advertisement of the game and be able to push it more on one console and even for Sony cause now they don't have to worry about another adventure game taking away sales and the shine of Uncharted and PS4 only players will put all their money into that game. Seems like a win/win/win for all parties in my book.
While I could get Tomb Raider on Xbox One, I can wait for it to either go down in price or buy it for PlayStation 4. This year is already wallet murder and one less game now can go a long way. At the very least, Ori and the Blind Forest looks amazing and I hope to grab that ASAP. You probably don't want my thoughts on ScreamRide lol.
Sorry to say this but when Bloodbourne comes out I think it's gonna really affect Xbone.I see Sony selling another 5 million just because of the Dark Souls fans.
I don't see Bloodborne being that much of a system seller. I think it will sell well cause a lot of people that bought the PS4 will buy the game as I'm definitely going to buy it, but it's not going to be a system seller cause it's too hardcore. Uncharted definitely will be a system seller for sure for Sony.
I totally agree with you all I'm saying is the Dark souls games has a lot of hardcore and loyal fans. I think it will definitely help Sony sell more ps4s.But Uncharted is still number one for Sony when it comes to sells. The order 1886 is about to sell Ps4s too a lot of fans just don't know it yet
It doesn't matter if it's too hardcore, if you look at the Souls community then you'll see they love the Souls series. It may not move as many consoles as Halo or Uncharted but that community will buy a PS4 just for Bloodborne.
Bloodborne much like all other souls games have a limited fanbase of several million people. It's a cult fanbase, and will NOT pull in 5 Million people... if anything it'll pull in 300-500k PC users who want to play Bloodborne.
Im glad Tomb Raider is back. Im looking forward to rise and many others that follow
MS is really invested in Tomb Raider and that's a good thing as the sequel can really go to new places with a bigger budget and a robust marketing campaign from MS. Hopefully PC gamers can get in on Lara's next adventure as well.
Because a marketing campaign will make the game better to play.
the last tomb raider was a amazing game if you played it you would know.
@n4gamingm ...yeah, and that had nothing to do with its marketing campaign.
Funnily enough, none of them is 100% exclusive.
Funnily enough, does it really matter? None of them will be on PS4
TR will be on PS4 once the duration ends or else MS would be shouting "Exclusive/Console Exclusive" from the rooftops.
Funny enough, the ps4 doesn't need tomb raider. Up to this point it's been selling just fine. You guys enjoy though, it does look pretty good.
I'm looking forward to Ori next month. The wait has been... Ori will definitely win awards.. It will be an essential title. Especially for those that appreciate art.
Ori and the Blind Forest is basically the only Xbox One (timed) exclusive I'm going to be playing in the next six months, but I'll likely be jamming away to Dragon Age: Inquisition and Final Fantasy: Type-0 for just as long when the latter comes out.
windows 10 for free with xbox integration and streaming possibilities it's great to have a capable pc 😃 il be looking forward to the games...
