I'll be the first to admit, I thought Tomb Raider would've ended up similar to TitanFall; A console exclusive but also appearing on PC. I still plan on picking it up in November for Xbox One, but I'm glad there will be a PS4 version at some point. I just hope it reviews really really well because that will directly impact how well it sells on the PlayStation 4 during the always busy Holiday season next year.

Rise of the Tomb Raider was never announced as an exclusive, I don't understand why there has been so much confusion over it.

Until last week, it wasn't confirmed for PS4 either. I don't think it was confusion as much as it was speculation about whether it would arrive on PS4 or not. We all know it had "a duration" to its exclusivity, but it could've easily meant it would be coming to PC (and not PS4) at some point. Regardless, it was never confirmed to be coming to PS4 until last week. Thankfully, the speculation and confusion has been squashed, and now we all know.
