GodisaGeek: "Lee Garbutt takes a look at the information surrounding Rise of the Tomb Raider's exclusivity, and asks if it's all that bad".
I dont see the huge deal that this is made out to be its not like there arent a ton of other amazing games coming out around the same period. As for Playstation fans you get Uncharted Collection Uncharted 4 Rise of the Tomb Raider now theres 3 reasons to be cheerful.
Rise of the Tomb Raider Definitive edition?
That is a very, very weak defense. ROTR is a huge title the holiday season, looks to be one of the best TR's ever made. It would be on PS4 this holiday season, and you will have to wait a full year. UC4 is also not out this season. You may want to check out FO4 to help deal with the disappointment you seem to be festering.
you gotta be kidding me... no gamer should be happy about deals like this crap....and SF5 is something completely different before anyone decide to throw that at me...
I won't throw SF5 at you, though since you mentioned it... please explain how the SF5 exclusivity isn't much worse... it could be said to be over 14 million times worse. The real disappointer of Sony fans is Sony, not Microsoft (such as Sony's firmware updates consistently not giving users the features they've been asking for and Sony's "consistent year-round" release delays). Microsoft originally bought TR timed exclusivity to have a comparable title to Uncharted 4. Sony then failed to deliver Uncharted 4 on time is why Sony's holiday this year is disappointing (AGAIN). If Sony didn't fail to deliver UC4 this holiday, Sony fans would find it more difficult to complain about TR not being released on PS4 until next year, especially since then TR would not have been in competition with UC4 as much, and Sony fans would have had fun insulting TR as inferior (probably hypocritically insulted by the same people crying about how bad Microsoft is for delaying PS4 TR for a year while Sony delays many of their major AAAs, yet they don't boo Sony for causing multiple similar delays, such as with UC4 and Ratchet & Clank). Sony fans commonly try spinning everything to distract from Sony's problems... such as claiming "more consistent year-round" releases many thousands of times, while Sony looks "sparse" compared with Ms this year, and more and more all the excuses Sony fans make about how Ms "blew their load" this year is proving to be more of the usual misinformation from Sony fans I've come to expect "consistently year-round"... with games such as Crackdown, Scalebound, ReCore, Halo Wars 2, and Quantum Break, plus more still yet to COME. @Kane22, yeah, I already knew that... I SO? PS4 TR is still "gonna happen regardless". @miyamoto, yes, and Ratchet & Clank... that's how "sparse" this year, and Sony failing to deliver is also what happened last year with The Order that was delayed (maybe to avoid holiday embarrassment that could have hurt PS4 sales). Possibly one of the greatest examples of Sony failing to deliver is The Last Guardian, especially since what they appear to now be delivering looks as if it is a remastered PS3 title.
well if you were smart and looked it up yourself. capcom needed help making SF5 so they went to sony for help and they did. tomb raider was gonna happen regardless of microsoft.
LoL! Sony failed to deliver U4? Hah hah hah! Do u actually believe that? Muwahahahahahahaha! U Xboxers amaze me! Muwhahahahahahha! Im glad u did. Im glad you did! Hahahaha! I feel sorry for ROTTR.... but The PlayStation Nation will save ROTTR when it comes to PS4 though and teach SEnix a valuable lesson.
@DDOS Sony 2015 1st party The Order 1886 - February MLB 15 - March Bloodborne - March God Of War 3 -July Until Dawn - August Helldivers - August Tearaway - September Uncharted Collection - October MS 1st party Scream ride - March State of Decay - April Rare Replay - August Gears of war HD August Forza 6 - September Halo 5 - October Fable Legends - October/November Almost every major Xbox release is over 3 months of the fall and spring whereas Sony releases straight from spring, summer into the fall = All year round. 3rd party PS4 exclusives Akiba's trip Disgaea 5 Disney Infinity 3.0 PlayStation systems exclusive edition Dragon quest Heroes Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires Final fantasy Heavensward FF X/ X-2 Godzilla oneechanbara Omega Quintet One Piece Pirate Warrior 3 Persona 5 SF IV Swordart Online Lost Song Jump Victory Vs Saint Seiya Souls Tales of Zestiria Talos Principle Earth Defece Force 4.1 Yakuza 5 Seems to me PS4 has significantly more exclusives. If this is a 'sparse' year then I guess Xbone is having a drought? Notice these are ALL retail releases, if we added in Indies it would be a landslide. Also if you mix in 3rd party exclusives and look at release dates PS4 has exclusives pretty much every month of the year.
@Chevalier, I'm not impressed with monstrously bad games being touted as important, such as Godzilla or Omega Quintet. Edit: An example of how such lists are BS... you didn't list Halo ODST, though you did list The Uncharted Collection and God of War 3. Do you also claim that Ms "lies" while you misrepresent them? ODST was released in the first half, next year Ms has more coming the first half (they didn't target the first half of this year, obviously due to updating), and you're forgetting that Sony delays their holiday games such as The Order, Ratchet & Clank, and Uncharted 4 to allow for that "more consistent" year-round release schedule. You're also forgetting the over 100 of the most desired 360 BC games being released this year... pretending as if that doesn't matter, as if people already played every 360 game they wanted, while you champion games such as Godzilla, isn't fair either. "Sparse" was the word Andrew House used to describe their 2015, http://www.ign.com/articles... And as far as indies, Ori is clearly FAR better than any 2014 (PS4) indies by a landslide, other than the 2012 game, Journey... Ori's production qualities were AAA, yet Sony fans CONstantly imply\SPIN it as just a typical "indie".
Why would we include 100 old BC 360 games?! They are neither exclusive nor do they bring anything new to the table. Halos ODST was and update of a game released last year so why include it?! Ori is great, but, Journey, Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Helldivers and a whole slew of indie games have been fantastic. Way to selectively suggest only titles you seem worthy should count; it's called moving goalposts. Disgaea 5, FF X/X-2, Heavensward, Persona 5, Tales of Zestiria and Talo's principle all should be excellent. Unlike Xbone which has no JRPG's. Their 'Sparse' is still more than Xbone is a FACT. Arguing with quotes in the face of FACTS is just purely idiotic. Also Scream Ride, State of Decay and next year's Recore and Scalebound are pretty niche games so if you want to list all these games then guess what the PS4 list of exclusives is still not only significantly more, there are also more highly rated as well.
I will just buy it used next fall.
Day one. Cant wait to play the best tps adventure game of 2015 :)
You'll also buy Uncharted Collection? :D
I won't be buying that I have played them all just no point in replaying them again, I'll definately be grabbing uncharted 4 though
So you've already played the game to know it's the best?
Funny, because all PS4 fans are already proclaiming Uncharted 4 to be the greatest game in the world and it's a year away, yet you don't seem to take issue with that..
Well, to be totally unbiased, Uncharted HAS consistently been awarded Game of the Year Awards... So, odds are people expect it to follow a certain standard of quality...?
Trickster - and the Tomb Raider Reboot has earned great scores as well, and this one is better in every way..
No I mean they might add some content and improve some things by the time it hits PS4 but there's no way in hell anything is going to be worth getting it an entire year later when it's fucking done. seriously it's just going to be sitting on a backup drive till next year when they decide to dust it off for the PS4 release, that's some straight up bullshit IMO. It would be one thing is MS were publishing/co-publishing it but literally they just paid SE off to make a multiplat game exclusive for a year.
its tood bad for crystal and MS tho...the game coming same time with fallout 4 as for me personaly i really dont care we have the better game uncharted 4 ofc so really dont mind...you can keep the exclusivity too if you want ms we all know which game will have the most sales,perfect reviews,awards..uncharted 4.
I wonder how CD feels now that 26 million+ gamers are going to be missing out for a year. Guess they'll learn from it.
I remember a time when sony fanatics swore up and down that we would never see a metal gear game on an xbox and then boom! We get metal gear solid 2 substance which was a better version of what was offered on the ps2, yet people didn't flock to get an xbox for it, nor did they give up their ps2's... Isn't that what is happening now with this new tomb raider?? Although, for the record, they haven't announced that the ps4 version will be an actual "definitive" version. Just because that was the case last time doesn't guarantee it will be this time...just saying.
Both Tomb Raider's exclusivity and Street Fighter's exclusivity are disgusting to behold.
