"Timed Xbox One Exclusive"

its funny to throw that into the title

morganfell1411d ago

It is the pressure of all of these recently announced PS4 titles and the impending flood of news coming today from PSX that is creating these defensive articles.

Well isnt it true?

If i remember correctly Phill said it was coming to other platforms as well.


"I'm hardly going to invest to go make the PlayStation version of any game"

He wont but Crystal Dynamics might port it over to the PS4 with what they make from the Xbox Versions. If they sell enough they will port it over especially with the PS4s user base.

Thanks for confirming that it could come to other platforms.

BiggCMan1411d ago

Actually no. It's also coming to Xbox 360. Phil said exclusive to Xbox, confirming both consoles.

thanhgee1411d ago


He said the contract "has a duration", which means it could be coming to the PC/PS4.

HeMan761411d ago

May be PC after some time but never PS4 or PS3.Phill said it!!!.

"Now, obviously if I'm going to partner on it, I'm a platform holder, I'm hardly going to invest to go make the PlayStation version of any game. It is a business. So when we go invest with a partner on a big franchise, we're going to come with certain needs we have out of the relationship."

Sweet dreams.

I don't think phil stated it's coming to other platforms, he did state the exclusivity has a duration. It would be SE's decision if they wish to pursue version's PS4, PS4 etc.

thanhgee1411d ago


Wtf? Why would Microsoft pay for them to develop a PS4 version... Phil has already said himself that the game exclusivity will "have a duration". That means that when the contract expires, Square Enix are free to do whatever the heck they want. And I don't see why they wouldn't develop a PS4/PC version when it has a larger marketshare than the XB1.

Your quote is meaningless.. It pretty says "I'm Microsoft, we won't pay to make PS4 games." It has nothing to do with whether or not they'll release the PS4/PC version sometime in the future.

I was going to comment on the same thing. These articles are obviously made from fanboys. I am pretty sure Street Fighter 5 will be timed, and even though it's on PC they are claiming it an exclusive. But we can't claim Titanfall or Ryse? Sony gets away with some of the most hypocritical stuff I've seen in the gaming industry.

Won't matter a bit after the Uncharted 4 gameplay they just showed off...the Tomb Raider killer is about to snuff the reboot baby in its chance of Rise even coming close to what UC4 will offer

MaxwellBuddha1411d ago (Edited 1411d ago )

You mean the gameplay that stole YET ANOTHER GAMEPLAY MECHANIC (rock climbing) from the Tomb Raider franchise?

Uncharted is and has always been a rip-off of Tomb Raider.

And after "dat downgrade" I hardly think the fellas over at CD are worried about anything.

jb2271410d ago


A current gen game that has been "downgraded" will still be head & shoulders above a last gen game on its best day...Tomb Raider will be a cross gen title, and considering that the first one wasn't on par visually w/ the 2nd or 3rd Uncharted games, there's not a chance in hell of Tomb Raider looking better. Uncharted plays better in my opinion & the stories are pretty unequivocally better in every aspect in the Uncharted series. Tomb Raider might have been first but Uncharted did it MUCH better. I guarantee that come release time, UC4 will house RotTR, you can take that to the bank.

muahahahaha, denial much?
"You mean the gameplay that stole YET ANOTHER GAMEPLAY MECHANIC (rock climbing) from the Tomb Raider franchise?" - yaaaa cause rock climbing is a exclusive feature from tomb raider, if thats the case then tomb raider stole the shooting and cover mechanics from uncharted cause i dont remember a tomb raider that had so many shoot out as the last one, i remember it being more of a exploration type of game with a bit of shooting.

"And after "dat downgrade" I hardly think the fellas over at CD are worried about anything." - downgrade you guys keep using it, i dont think you know what it means, to be a downgrade first you need to see some gameplay and compare it to another gameplay (like watch dogs), dont go and say that was a downgrade based on a video from a different scene, lightning conditions and different scene based on a in-engine graphics video versus a video from in-game graphics. if you guys would know anything its that with games from naughty dog the in-engine cut-scenes are always of better quality then the in-game gameplay, but it doesnt mean it was a downgrade, it just hate alot of hate from all you guys. and completely denial. and how can you say guys at CD are worried about nothing? have you seen anything from Rise of the Tomb Raider? only a CGI cutscene but if you think thats in-game graphics then you must be very gullible. and yes maybe they arent worried about competing with uncharted in nov 2015 cause they are not releasing the game on ps4 other wise it would be smashed hard even releasing in the same time frame as uncharted and halo 5 its going to be over shadowed, and i can already see microsoft with bundles with both of them included and then brag about how great it sold.

'Everything Known About Rise of the Tomb Raider: Timed Xbox One Exclusive'

...Which is pretty much nothing?


Ausbo1411d ago

Yeah really what a pointless article.

IIFloodyII1411d ago

Isn't it also on the 360? So not Xbox One exclusive.

ScorpiusX1411d ago

Wonder if all timed Exclusives are going to be called out or is it just for Xbox . Seem somewhat a bit biases

the_dark_one1410d ago

well then enlighten us which more games out there are not being marked as time exclusives and that as being already confirmed as timed exlusives.
