If you hoped 2015 would be the year that cross-gen titles faded away to give space for more PS4/Xbox One only games then you'll be disappointed by the news that Rise of the Tomb Raider will also be coming to last-gen platforms.
that sucks man
So it probably won't look as good as it could.
I think it depends on the size of the team etc. Alien Isolation is cross gen and looks amazing on X1/PS4 from what I've seen.
Hopefully they go all out with the current gen consoles first, then dumb it down for last gen's consoles... Seems like Sony's first party studios are the only developers focused solely on current gen games.
It is not confirmed. The Amazon site is the UK site but if you go to the US site, it only has the XB1 version listed and no other version. Also, Gamestop has no pre order page yet and I actually trust Gamestop pre order information than Amazon. When the Halo Master chief collection was announced, they had that game on XB360 as well and it was since taken off the website. I think the UK Amazon site is just guessing at this point as I'll wait for an official confirmation first before jumping into any conclusion. http://www.amazon.com/Tomb-... http://www.gamestop.com/bro...
That's a shame. But then again, who is buying this when uncharted is coming?
ummmm i'd guess everyone who doesnt have a ps4, and likes that style of game... or the thousands of tomb raider fans that actually still exist ... just a wild guess tho... dont be so narrow minded :/
What???? Last gen needs to end man....
yes,100 mil owners on PS3 and 360 need to throw away their consoles, cause almost 20 mil and or less owners of these new consoles don't want the game to come on PS3 and 360,really!!!This is a business industry,grow up
Last gen must die. Everyone else needs to grow up and get more money
despite the fact that i own a ps4,and tr will inevitably be held back by last gen. i kinda agree,nex gen needs to sell a lot more than that to get 3rd complete party exclusivity
^^^^ If you were all grown up with lots of money, you'd be gaming on a high end PC instead of squabbling about something so insignificant.
so 200 mil ps2 owners must try this game too
@Chucky I understand the demographic. In fact PS360 generation is by far the longest and biggest install base out of any other gen in history. So yeah it only makes sense to continue to cater to last gen owners. But Pubs and devs need to get out of their bubble and start developing next gen only titles. PS4 and X1 are the new consoles they need the real push, people need a reason to go out and buy a new system. Or what they could do is take the AC approach and have two different studio's working on the games. Its important to note that early next gen owners including myself spent allot of money the new machines we want to play next gen games that's why we bought them. I know some games are strictly next gen now which is a good thing. But sadly I believe pubs are gonna hang on to last gen allot longer than they did in the PS2 and OG Xbox era. Money wise that just makes sense. Good for last gen owners bad for next gen owners.
Tell me, what other gen had such an abundance of cross generation titles? I remember, even with the 360/PS3/Wii, many new games not on the Xbox/PS2/GameCube. As many have said, developers should focus on the current gen. It's mid 2014 and the generation began in November 2012. It's seriously time to consider, fully, moving on. A few cross gen titles (such as the sports games), I can understand. But remaster after remaster, in addition to, cross gen multiplatform titles just feels like overkill.
if you honestly think theres over 100 million active PS3 and 360s out there your as dumb and ignorant as you sound. most PS3 and 360s have died years ago some people have sold them because they are that old and about over 9 million people have moved on to next gen. after taking that into consideration it seems obvious. if you can't afford next gen console then tough luck. it doesn't mean next gen owners have to suffer inferior and toned down games because a cheap ass like you stays in the past and a big reason is whenever theirs a next gen game its always outselling the old consoles now. just look at Thief, MGS ground zero, battlefield. last gen owners aren't even buying any games and living off their existing games and free games on psplus. its time for developers to move on and force cheap asses like you to buy a next gen console or force you to live in the past
I love last gen. Last gen is still a current gen for me.
@ritsuka666 it definitely does,but next gen really needs to start for that nobody abandons a userbase of 150 mil for 20 mil.plain n simple. more people need to buy a nex gen console for that.which they wont until they get exclusives,vicious circle indeed lol
Seeing how the first one did they are pretty eager to get it into as many platforms as possible. I assume they have unrealistic expectations again.
All these cross-generation titles need to stop! Why even bother purchasing a next generation console?
This is pretty much how it always goes... Big titles where they need to make money get last-generation releases and as the newer consoles get older, we start to see fewer and fewer last-generation titles until we finally hit a point where it's like "whoa, someone is still making PS3 / 360 games?!" "Why even bother purchasing a next generation console?" Generally exclusives are limited to next-gen (LBP being on the PS3 is actually a plus, since that means you will get more levels), games look / play better and more offers are generally targeted at you (just this past week PS4 users got the Hardline Beta, Destiny Alpha, E3 app that gave 250 Sony Reward points [this is halfway to a free $5 PSN voucher] and PlayStation Now beta codes. Overall, if you don't like what is happening, then don't be a trend setter.
LBP games already have more levels than you could play in 5 lifetimes. I don't want more levels, I want less limitations.
just let last gen die already so we can really start tapping into next gen potential
Yea, upgrade to next gen already you welfies.
Upgrade to PC already if you care about amazing looking multi-plat games welfies.
Thanks, anus man!
Great for the last gen gamers have not finished the last one on pc yet may get there one day most likely not before the new game is cheap lol. Will we get different head DLC I don't like the change?
Man this is disappointing, i understand they wanna open up to all that money from the 360 and PS3 owners but it just sucks that it will definitely hold back the quality of what next gen gets, UNLESS its ported to last gen by a different dev.
Will there be a lesbian storyline though on both gen systems. Its all i care about.
PS1 and PS2 version Confirmed.
You guys think too highly of X1 and Ps4. It will be years before a game comes along that couldn't be achieved by 360 and PS3. They're powerful machines.
"You guys think too highly of X1 and Ps4." not really we just wannna get our money's worth. We paid the cost is what I'm saying.
*They were powerful machines. As it stands my mum's phone is more powerful than my 360. I loved last gen as much as anyone, but its time to move on man.
That's great for your mom. How well does it game?
@Spotie Terribly :) I hate most mobile games. But think about it: if someone were to make a game that really takes advantage of the phone's hardware, that game might have to be dumbed down in order to be ported to the last gen consoles. That is some scary shit, my friend!
Well the ps4 version of Tomb Raider was looking as amazing as the PC version so I expect the same for this. As long as they push each console to the max
Even maxed out TR looks kinda bland and flat.
Not sure why everybody is up in arms bout this when publishers stated a long time ago that they'd support last gen for 2 - 3 years after "next gen" starts. Let's be honest, non of the next gen only games have brought about any revolution in gaming. Killzone, Knack, Forza, DR3, Ryse, infamous all look great (cept Knack) but aren't much beyond looks.
tomb raider underworld was cross gen too .and it will be too
last gen dont need to die only thing obut last gen needs to die is any game without word jrpg exclusive ps3 staple on it period. 2014 is year of jrpg for ps3 i loveing it hopefully 2015 has few to end ocnsole off with bang... persona 5 on ps4 instead of ps3 ill take that plz
If they are going to make it last gen atleast use the wii u as the platform! Smh
So much whining. It will still look awesome pm current gen consoles. The last one was so good, I expect this to be even better!
booooo no more cross-gen games, please.
It will be a huge mistake if it's true. End of cros-gen games!!!:/
Cross-gen gaming needs to die this year...
FFS!!! Was going to buy this but not any more. I don't do cross gen games(unless two versions are built by two completely different teams with two completely different engines)I I didn't pay 400 dollars for a next gen console to purchase a cross gen experiences
Wow way to fall apart, gamers need to toughen up and stop acting like a princess every time something in the industry happens.
Don't care. I just want more platforming, exploring, puzzle solving, & less gunplay.
It needs to stop. I remenber when i had a Ps2 and Ps3 came out... I was like "Wooow i need to get this" since really no games came out for the Ps2 anymore :c.
Exactly remember when you first got your PS2 and games like Metal Gear Solid 2 Gran Turismo 3 FF10, Devil May Cry 1 all came out within the first of the consoles release (2001) None of those games were Cross Gen you never had to worry about that back then.....
Different times. Those were real upgrades in graphics. The average gamer could tell a huge difference Gran Turismo to the PS2 version. Its Golden Axe on Genesis compared to Master system. Now the average person really wouldn't notice the difference of Titan fall on 360 and x1. It's minimal. Stuff only fanboys look at to find a weakness.
That is disappointing. So now the developer had to design the game so it could work on last gen consoles, that is the problem with cross gen, it limits the more advance hardwares developement.
We're not that far into current gen. to where last gen. is irrelevant so this isn't surprising. Thank goodness Arkham Knight doesn't have to go through this.
