Think the point of the timed exclusives is to sway the people who know almost nothing about video games to purchase the system like a little kid or a parent who just see the advertisements. If they sell a bundle for cheap then they will generate sales. Remember when the 360 was on sale for a year and the PS3 just came out I asked my parents for one of them for Christmas, they went with the cheaper system which was the 360. Looking forward to the game and Im just waiting for it to come to PC so I can run it at 60 fps.

I think that "people" are really salty that they have to wait a year for a game that is a GOTY contender.

It's contending for it's own place in the crowd alone, with the amount of exclusive promotion that Microsoft has been shouting all year, but packing into a 3 month window. But in that same window with Fallout 4, Metal Gear Solid 5, and Star Wars Battlefront, Tomb Raider is not realistically contending for goty.

In my opinion, I don't think a lot of people mind waiting for the PS4 version. If you think about it, this may be the way to go. It will have all the latest fixes and patches. Possibly even DLC. Not to mention a possible slight bump in performance.

Debatable in some perspectives. the price points of both games can greatly change in a year apart difference. And Patches are also platform specific, this isn't to say that either platform may or may not need or get patches down the road.

people do mind. sales data proves this. most game sales are front loaded, this is why so many ps4 owners are upset that microsoft got the exclusive deal for a year.

@moldybread
Which sales data do you mean? The clearly disappointing sales of Tomb Raider on XBoxes compared to the PS versions?!

"Which sales data do you mean? The clearly disappointing sales of Tomb Raider on XBoxes compared to the PS versions?!"

that makes a lot of sense to what i said. did the last tomb raider come out a year later on the playstation?

here's a thought, look at sales for oblivion and bioshock and mass effect on the ps3 and compare them to how well it sold on the xbox 360. that is what you should be using as a guide since all of those games came out later on the ps3.

when a game comes out a year later it will not have the same impact as it would if it had a simultaneous release. unless of course you talk about japanese titles that have a history of not selling very well on the xbox.

Timed exclusives are just kinda dumb in the grand scheme of things

A year is a long time to wait for 1 game.
