We all hate getting back-stabbed; that moment when you think you have found loyalty, only to find that someone or something has had their or its head turned by something they or it perceive to be greater.

That’s how many PlayStation loyalists felt when the news broke that the upcoming Rise of The Tomb Raider – the latest in the long-running series – will be exclusive to Xbox systems, at least for a while. Currently, all we know is that the game will be a timed-exclusive for the Xbox One with a downgraded version being made for the Xbox 360.

But that’s not really the point. Yes, chances are that PS4 owners will get their hands on the game eventually because the 2013 reboot of Tomb Raider was a success on all systems. Nevertheless, Tomb Raider had often been a franchise that could be used to identify the PlayStation. Some of the TR games were huge on the PS2, for instance. Arguably, the core fan base for the series were PlayStation owners, so to take it away from them, if only for a time, seems utterly nonsensical let alone unfair.

Of course, the PS4 will have Uncharted 4 arriving in 2016 to soften the blow – a series which has taken inspiration heavily from Tomb Raider – but has the damage already been done? According to some feedback on social media, apparently so. On the official Facebook page for the game an update was posted yesterday hinting at some sort of news reveal on June 1. Let’s conduct a brief analysis of some of the comments to see that Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix are treading on thin ice.

So what do you make of all this? Are you an upset PlayStation gamer? The only reason this has happened is down to money, if we’re all being honest, and that’s a bit disheartening. So is this a nail in the coffin for the franchise or can Crystal Dynamics somehow redeem itself? Time will tell.

    I’m so disappointed, because I’m not getting an XBOX ONE no matter what. Screw tomb raider for not being on PS4

    • Dgnfly

      it’s a timed exclusive dear god it is coming to ps4 just a bit later.

    • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

      Apparently you dont know what timed exclusive means.

  • drjonesjnr

    Not bothered at all the 2013 reboot was a poor mans carbon copy of uncharted.
    So I will wait for uncharted 4
    Micro$oft can have tomb raider

    • Pedro Oliveira

      Yes, i will play Tomb Raider!

      • drjonesjnr

        So will ps4 gamers its only a “timed” exclusive yawn Microsoft 🙁

        • yvito125

          link saying its coming to ps4?

          • drjonesjnr

            Link saying it isn’t?

            • Pedro Oliveira

              Maybe its a “timed” because its also coming to PC. Many xbox fans complain and ask to MS to not launch xbox exclusives on PC. Those fans claims the games launched on PC and XBO are not exclusives. Maybe, in Phil’s mind, its timed if its also coming to PC, i think thats why he told on twitter its timed.

        • Pedro Oliveira

          If you think so, then keep waiting… have a seat.

    • Call-Me-Your-Hooker

      uncharted copied TR because it came first dick.

      • GotNews4Ya

        Tomb Raider and Uncharted are different games.. Just because they both are explorers and Treasure hunters doesn’t mean they are based off one or the other. If anything they both are molds of Indiana Jones.. and One took a more puzzle oriented style of play (Tomb Raider) and the other went for a Hollywood guns blazing treasure hunter style, more resembling the lines of Indiana Jones with its set pieces and crazy stunts. (Uncharted). The “Reboot” of Tomb Raider is unfamiliar to any of the previous iterations of the franchise. It actually strays way away from the norm of the franchise. Many of the franchises fans have asked Crystal Dynamics to go back to the Puzzle Oriented Style in some form in the next iteration. It just wasn’t the same.. I agree with most people on this.. I think he was referring to the Reboot being too much like Uncharted, when it should have adapted a bit.. but still embraced its Puzzles and actually made Tomb Raiding a priority. Then again.. it was setting the franchise up frrom the ground up again.. so maybe they will get it all adjusted for ROTR. Either Way.. Looking forward to it.. When I get it that is.. Might see how it plays out.. PC or PS4.. if not exclusive… if so.. and I got extra cash around then.. It will be a day 1 grab for my Xbox.

    • DLConspiracy//

      If it was a PS4 exclusive you would adore the game.

      • drjonesjnr

        Just like you adore it for being on xbone 1st no difference XD

        • DLConspiracy//

          Actually I could care less. We have been through this. I own both systems and a pc. You dont.

          • drjonesjnr

            I couldn’t care less about this meaningless argument about what console I own lol
            Move along junior lol

            • DLConspiracy//

              Your original comment begs to differ. Still oiling that console war machine I see.

              • drjonesjnr

                You got that from my original comment?
                Wow the fanboy runs deep in you mate lol

                • DLConspiracy//

                  Anyone that puts Micro$oft in their comment, has a PS4 as their picture and claims they don’t care about tomb raider because it supposedly ripped off Uncharted when tomb raider was copied from…. is salty and engaging in console wars. Sorry but that’s pretty hard to deny.

                  • drjonesjnr

                    And anyone who gets upset/angry because I don’t like the same console as them is just as much a fanboy as me 😉

                    You’re one of the biggest xbone loyalist on the internet mate everyone knows that not matter what you put on your profile.
                    I’m a ps4 fan
                    Deal with it XD

                    • DLConspiracy//

                      Who’s angry? I am just talking. I was just pointing out that you are biased and automatically dislike the game because it’s not coming to PS4 right away. I barely touch my consoles anymore. Been PC gaming. Just happened to see you spreading the same old rigermarole. Not surprised. I guess if you own an Xbox you are automatically an “Xbox loyalist”. Those who preach the good word of only one gaming system often think/do that. As they are fanboys.

                    • drjonesjnr

                      Blah blah go away mate I’m not getting in to a fan boy argument with you.
                      If you don’t think that the tomb raider “reboot” was a carbon copy of uncharted then you have never played uncharted.
                      Uncharted was nothing like the original tomb raider same concept but with more shooting like a Hollywood blockbuster.

                      The tomb raider reboot was a quite good uncharted clone but uncharted 2-3 are much better than tomb raider Imo
                      No take that or leave it.
                      Its my opinion nothing more no need to get all upset

                    • DLConspiracy//

                      You keep saying I’m upset. That doesn’t mean I’m upset. It’s a conversation. I disagree. Granted the newest TR is probably the first one I thoroughly enjoyed but I wouldn’t call it a “carbon copy” of uncharted. Seems a bit much. Especially coming from someone who doesn’t care to game anywhere else. That’s the only reason I bring it up. I’m not the one commenting on every PS article putting down the system or its games. You do that with xbox and MS.

                    • drjonesjnr

                      No mate ive got a wii ps3 ps4 wii u pc(needs upgrading ) xbox 360
                      I don’t like the xbone so won’t be buying one 🙂
                      But if I’m desperate to play tomb raider as your claiming,I’ll buy it play it on the 360 🙂

                      Totally degree though the tomb raider reboot was just like uncharted no tombs raider before the reboot was anything like uncharted

                    • DLConspiracy//

                      Never said you were desperate. Just basically said you were dismissive of the game because it’s not on the PS4. At least not right away. Why would you play the game on 360? Id be surprised to hear you’ve even turned it on since the PS4 came out. Regardless, why do you constantly for years go online to preach negatives about Xbox if you aren’t a fanboy? I would think you wouldn’t care so much. Yet you do it all the time.

                    • drjonesjnr

                      Well no I’m just not that interested in tomb raider
                      If I was I could get it for my 360
                      Uncharted 4 is what I’m looking forward to.
                      You’re a internet troll trying to cause an argument.
                      I’m not biting mate 😉

                    • drjonesjnr

                      Why for years do you feel you have to go round the internet defending the xbone?
                      People only have to look at you’re disqus account and all you’re comments are you arguing with other ps4 fans lol
                      Its clear to see you’re a xbone fan boy trying to claim the middle ground lol

                      Do yourself a favour if you’re gonna claim not to be a xbox fan boy mate you’re disqus account private lol

                      Man I hope Microsoft are paying you,your like the one man army Microsoft defense force lol
                      Hilarious really XD

                    • DLConspiracy//

                      I keep my account open because I have nothing to hide. Troll pointing troll. Interesting…..

                      It’s not defending xbox. It’s defending gaming as a whole. As I would think that someone who has actually played both consoles, also plays on pc and has ownwd all the old consoles too might actually have an opinion worth listening to. Not some hateful corporate clown loving puppet like perhaps you… You might understand that if you actually took the console off your mid section once in awhile.

                      Also when you type “lol” constantly it makes for a crappy read. It’s like you are typing it to convince me you are not bothered and having a good time. When it actually only comes off as fake to me.

                    • drjonesjnr

                      Lol ok mate well this got boring about five replys ago. keep shilling for Microsoft you ain’t fooling anyone 😉 I’m not going to reply again because this argument your trying to make is completely stupid and childish.
                      I don’t like the xbone get the f#ck over it lol

                    • DLConspiracy//

                      This was never about making you like xbox. You just think that because I called you out for hating TR suddenly. You replied to my comment with assumptions and I clarified. You further pushed your assumptions as fact and I explained it wasnt. It’s a conversation or debate. I will understand if you bow out. You weren’t listening anyway.

                    • drjonesjnr

                      Lol looks like we have a nutcase here LMFAO

                    • DLConspiracy//

                      You would adore me if I was feeding the community negative comments about xbox every day.

                    • drjonesjnr

                      Lol you’re not right in the head mate.

                    • DLConspiracy//

                      Yes having conversation is crazzzzzzzyyyy. Open the windows more. Mate.

                    • drjonesjnr

                      The conversation,or what ever you want to call it ended when you was calling me a Sony drone or whatever you said lol
                      I’m not into the hole childish console wars thing mate,I’m not gonna engage in it.

                    • DLConspiracy//

                      You have an extremely bad habit of putting words in my mouth. I never call people stupid names like that. It’s like you are not reading or comprehending anything I am saying. I like gaming. NOT corporate fanboying. In fact this whole conversation started when you were flexing them muscles. Now you are trying to turn it around on me as if that’s what I meant. I game anywhere I can. Just please stop writing me. Besides you said the conversation was over long long time ago. Just because you don’t understand written language doesn’t mean what you say is automatically true.. It’s mind boggling how you came to this conclusion.

                    • drjonesjnr

                      You said, I quote:
                      “Not some hateful corporate clown loving puppet like perhaps you…”

                      Its a bit much that mate just because I think tomb raider is like uncharted?
                      LMFAO
                      Unhinged comes to mind mate 😉
                      You internet trolls, you guys give Microsoft a bad reputation and lets face it the public perception isn’t that great in the first place 😉
                      Keep up the good work 😉

                    • DLConspiracy//

                      Yeah after you outright stated your allegiance. Plus this isn’t the first nonsensical debate we had. You also claimed I didnt own blood borne or a PS4. I showed you a picture of both and you shut up.

                    • drjonesjnr

                      What? Is this you’re life mate? Lol
                      I said I’ve got a 360/ps3/wiiu/ps4/pc
                      Am I a fan of the ps4 yes obviously *looks at profile pic* the ps4 is a great console imo
                      You’re getting personal over what?
                      Because I think the xbone is crap?
                      Its just my opinion mate I loved my 360 there’s no brand loyalty I just don’t like anything the xbone has to offer.
                      If you wanna believe I’m some 12yr old fan boy go ahead lol
                      But I’m not going back and forward with this childish bull

                      There is ATLEAST TWICE in his previous posts that he clearly stated it was just his “opinion” and it wasn’t going to change. So.. The whole “Trying to make it fact” is not even remotely true.. Maybe you should try to focus on the conversation you are having, instead of spewing the same b.s. to everyone you try to “Enlighten”. He never once said it was a fact.. These fights never cease to amaze me..

                    • DLConspiracy//

                      I wasn’t really talking to you. I’m sure he doesn’t need his significant other standing up for him. He got upset from me poking fun at him. Too bad. Now go take him out to dinner already.

                    • GotNews4Ya

                      I find it hard to believe you have time for any sort of gaming.. But I do believe that you have moved to PC gaming.. since you are constantly posting on articles.. How else could you play a game and post at the same time?

                    • DLConspiracy//

                      Is this a question?

                    Well.. Actually.. I would argue that Uncharted is more close to Indiana Jones.. than it is to Tomb Raider.. And.. I would also argue that Tomb Raider took its inspiration from Indiana Jones too..

                    • drjonesjnr

                      Yea definitely agree with that

  • Steven OConnor

    People relax the game reboot was really good. Second these games both take ideas from each other though I did prefer the last tomb raider over the uncharted games. Control is more fluid game fits my needs better. I really like uncharted and in fairness they are older games so part 4 I hope the controls are more fluid for drake. People always complain on this stuff. If it was only on ps4 the other camp would complain I have owned both but currently own an Xbox one. Right now there aren’t many games for play station 4 so I’m not missing much. At the end of the day it’s about fun of the games

      Trying to seem unbiased and getting in your stealth digs…. People see through it. I have the TR reboot and have played through all the uncharted games and hold my hand on my heart when I say that TR feels like it has no depth. Its just a skin deep copy of uncharted and people on the Xbox loyalist side will always try and undermine it as they tried with tlou. But simple fact is Xbox can’t match it. Square can’t match it and its sad to see them even try. Just do something original….. Oh wait that’s just not Microsoft is it.

      • jb227

        Naughty Dog is the dev that got me back into gaming & its been like chasing the dragon for me ever since I played UC2 for the first time…nothing else has ever come quite close to it, aside from other Naughty Dog titles. They are an undeniable force & there is literally no other dev w/ their mastery working these days imo & in the opinion of the majority of critics, journalists & gamers who play games w/o bringing in any other baggage or allegiances to other devs or platforms. No other dev can weave different gameplay mechanics together w/ a rock solid story like they can.

      • john smith

        Haha! Yeah ok, “TR feels like it has no depth. Its just a skin deep copy of uncharted” Hmm.. Wasn’t TR around first? People call Uncharted “Dude Raider” for a reason you know.

        Just another pissed PS fanboy spewing crap and being a hypocrite at the same time. Calling others out for being biased. Sheesh! Won’t be long until the name calling starts. lol

        • Bilal Prince- Ali

          so what if Tomb raider was there first..? How the hell does that hold any relevancy over the quality of the game you fool! -__-

          You dont even know how to argue… NO ONE calls it “Dude Raider” and haven’t widely called it that since Uncharted 1 so behave yourself,

          • john smith

            OMG! Just shut up. lol

            • Bilal Prince- Ali

              ahahahahhahahahah loooooooool!!! Im not hating… i think TR as a franchise is legendary.. but then it fell off and SUCKED HARD! then Uncharted came along, Uncharted 1 was unfairly but understandably considered a TR clone, then Uncharted 2 came out and that was the end of all comparisons lol.. Uncharted is the LEAD in that genre,, and the TR Reboot literally REEKS of Uncharted, you can literally tell that the game heavily took from what we get from Uncharted series!

              • Pedro Oliveira

                …it came and made people bored… i see.

                • Bilal Prince- Ali

                  yet Uncharted 4 is easily the most anticipated game!!! sooooo…. yeah lool

                    poor you…

              • Pedro Oliveira

                According to the developer, the new TR will be based on Metroid Prime style. In my opinion, TR will be the lead in that genre once again and unique.

                ¨I love Metroid Prime game!

                • Bilal Prince- Ali

                  hahaha.. ok princess…. even though TR hasn’t led that genre since the early 2000’s yeah, even the TR reboot didn’t take back it’s ‘lead’ in the genre… but im suuuurrre this CROSS GEN TR game will be better than the PS4 exclusive Uncharted 4 loool… when we haven’t even seen any gameplay or in engine graphics just a bunch of CG teasers and trailers loool.. YET we’ve seen Uncharted 4 running looking absolutely amazing! but of course.. no nooo TR will once again lead! ahahah you fool

                  • Pedro Oliveira

                    Im sure even Banjoo Kazooie is better than Uncharted and all its graphics powerrrrrr. When you start playing uncharted try not to get angry because it is being downgraded, so its not like that CG teaser you watched.

                    I see you do not know how to apreciate a game… poor you…

        Do something original when Uncharted is a carbon copy of Tomb raider LOL

        • Bryan King

          Have you played the Original TR series…. they are nothing like Uncharted and the Tomb Raider reboot only shares a name with that old series. Otherwise it’s just a girl with zero personality running round in circles on an island with terribly unrealistic character development. It was bloody terrible.

    • jb227

      I really don’t see that in my experience. The Uncharted games possess the smoothest controls I’ve ever touched. The reason why they are so fun is how quick the pace of the story is & how fluid the controls are when transitioning from gunfight to traversal to puzzle solving. IMO Tomb Raider was a great game but nowhere near UC, I love me some puzzles & Tomb Raider had absolutely none, and the few optional tombs that were there didn’t really make any kind of sense in the story & seemed pretty unconnected, whereas all the puzzles in the UC franchise are integrated into the undeniably better crafted story & every bit of the game flows naturally into the narrative. Tomb Raider is a ‘game’ Uncharted is an experience in my eyes. Uncharted transcends its medium, hence the reason why it was marketed as a game that anyone can enjoy regardless of whether or not they have a controller in their hand, and that really rang true in my experience & in the experience of everyone I’ve talked to that have played or seen the titles in action. Pure perfectly paced spectacle, absolute thrill ride from the first frame.

        You Shut the fuck up

      • Steven OConnor

        you’re right everybody definitely experiences games differently as you may find the control great I may not but it is really good series and I like it no less. Will be nice to play Parfore but I don’t think I’ll be buying a PlayStation four again myself

      So a game with PS2 era stiff animations is more fluid then a series made by THE BEST ANIMATION team around??? Have you actually seen the animations in these games? Even the run animation cycle of Drake in even the first game?? Are you high? It changes dynamically with every single step in the ground that he takes.
      Tomb Raider 2013 was an okay game but the animations simply were not special AT ALL. And that setting and cliched boring characters? Geeesh.

        Everybody’s entitled to their opinion I liked tomb raider I enjoyed the game. I did not say I didn’t like the uncharted series I really do but in my experience I enjoyed the last tomb raider more. And to be fair not everything changes in uncharted all the time and every step of the game. for one thing I’m not high are you? Uncharted series in general rotates around the story just like tomb raider and is very much linear just like tomb raider. I don’t see where it changes and every step it is more like an action movie and certain scenes like the train for example but that’s not really dramatic changes it is a moment in the game For one thing uncharted could have a smoother run system in my opinion and I believe four will probably make drake a much more fluid feeling character what he needs. You could be all bitchy about my opinion but it’s my opinion just like I respect your opinion respect mine

    phil had already re-iterated that their deal was still timed on may 22nd: https://twitter.com/XboxP3/status/601984067433803778

    so unless they changed the deal, this is highly doubtful.

    • jb227

      Not only that but another exec said a week or so ago (Greenberg maybe? Can’t really recall) that MS was the only console you could play Tomb Raider on “this year”. That last caveat surely paints it to me as Rise hitting PS4 sooner rather than later. Going by that it could drop as soon as Jan. 1 & at the latest Dec. 31. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were already working on the PS4 version, hence the reason why they know the deal is only for Holiday 2015. I’d only buy it used personally out of principle, not going to put stock in a franchise that I could potentially never be able to see to its conclusion.

      • Ziggurcat

        do you happen to know where that tweet is?

        • jb227

          I don’t, I know it was from an exec, I wanna say Greenberg but it might’ve been a different media related exec. Its a one off comment & maybe I’m reading too much into it, but it did seem strange as it was the first time I’d seen anyone using that “this year” signifier in regards to Rise….if I find it I’ll post it here though

  • Scary69l

    They have already stated this game is “Time Exclusive” what part of that does anyone not understand?

  • HgGamer

    To all the Fuckface that wrote this article and all his retards you will never see this fuckin game on PS4 fuckwits Microsoft developing it and publishing it dumbfucks Timed because it’s going to PC you dumb fucks so STFU you fuckin dumb ponies

    • Bryan King

      An ignoramus Xbox fan…. What a surprise. Really impressive bad language!

    • Valkyrine

      I’m sure you will be singing a different tune when you read PS4 release date.

    • john smith

      PS fanboys are notorious for the exact same behaviour that you exhibiting. Please stop it all you’re doing is hurting the Xbox community. If you can’t “represent” properly then don’t at all.

    • Tha Truth

      Microsoft are developing and publishing it are they you ignorant piece of vermin scum? That’s funny because according to the games website it’s being developed by Crystal Dynamics and published by Square – Enix. Are you actually trying to argue with the very people who are making the game now? LMAO, your disgusting, ignorant, uneducated vermin scum upbringing from your retarded hillbilly parents is starting to expose you.

      Thank you for proving that Xbox fanboy trash are the most ignorant, uneducated, unwashed, illiterate, non – human peasant trash that this planet ever had the misfortune of producing. You’re really representing your peasant console with pride, ROFL!

  • Valkyrine

    “Time Exclusive” is different than Exclusive

  • Sheldon Jones
  • Daniel Okada

    I’d rather play it on PC than buy an XBO. I won’t be buying three consoles this time around just so I can play a small handful of exclusives on each of those secondary platforms.

  • Edd Welch

    you guys are idiots. Tomb raider is a timed exclusive its not a FULL exclusive and will come to PS4 later on. stupid article and even dumber fanboys

  • Dennis Gammaray

    I dont care if its timed or not but being on the Xbone first just means a poor port over to PS4 and thats enough to keep clear of this Micro$oft funded garbage, Lara is now DEAD

  • Nettrick Nowan

    Own both systems and will wait for the PS4 version for obvious reasons.

    I will say this though–if it turns out to be another parity title like Assassins Creed and Evolve, I won’t buy it. The PS4 does graphics better than the Xbox One–if they hold the PS4 version back, I won’t touch it. Scratch that, I won’t buy it–Gamefly to the rescue!

  • Jan Compaf

    most likely a timed exclusive
    if not, good riddance
    its the company loss

    • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

      It is a timed exclusive that’s already been established its not even up for debate.

  • andy

    I think its more Tomb Raider fans rather than Playstation fans that are disappointed. Imagine having an early PS3 console and being able to play pretty much EVERY Tomb Raider game made. That’s right, no matter how much Square and Microsoft want you to believe that Tomb Raider’s home is on Xbox, you can’t even play the first 5 games on ANY of their consoles lol. However you CAN play them on PS1, PS2 and PS3 consoles.
    Its quite insulting that PS3 and PS4 owners have to wait for the next game.

    • Steve Wright

      Exactly. It’s a shame that the publisher has likely had its head turned by Microsoft’s money.

  • Dirkster_Dude

    Social Media can be a powerful tool and it is great for expressing oneself, but it isn’t very good when gauging market research into the buying habits of gamers. If people have to blame someone don’t blame Microsoft for taking advantage of what they are willing to do to help move consoles and sell games. Maybe ask why Sony isn’t doing the same? Maybe they aren’t as hungry with having sold 40%-50% more consoles?

    • Steve Wright

      Social media is also useful for getting a general opinion on any given topic. You’re right, Microsoft aren’t to be blamed for this – if anything they should be commended for ‘hitting PlayStation where it hurts’ so to speak by taking one of its beloved franchises, if only for a while. What’s more, you’re correct to speculate that SONY may have become lenient given the sales figures – it’s the natural response to taking an overwhelming lead.

  • Lennox

    Why isn’t there this much uproar for SFV. Media still pushing this “MS is evil” BS.

    • Dgnfly

      i think ppl blame MS for street fighter exclusivity cause MS tried to get Tomb raider exclusive but failed because off their console sales so sony did the same thing back towards them with street fighter. offcourse capcom doesen’t mind going full exclusive cause ps4 has like double the sales.

  • Dgnfly

    IT’S NOT EXCLUSIVE IT”S TIMED EXCLUSIVE MEANING IT”S COMING FOR PS4.
    now there is just a delayed release for ps4

  • D.Sharp Bumpas

    Hahahaahahahahahahahahah

    Sony fans

  • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

    Its fine Steve we can just play then better version when it comes to PS4, nothing to worry about.

  • Steve Wright

    To clear a few things up that are being discussed in the comments:

    1) I am well aware that the game is a timed exclusive for Xbox systems. The likelihood is that it will make its way onto PlayStation – I pointed that out in the article. But the point is, Square Enix has clearly put Microsoft first and therefore Xbox gamers ahead of PlayStation users where most of the series fans typically are. That’s why it’s the wrong move. To use a pointless football analogy, when Fernando Torres left Liverpool we as fans were all heartbroken. If he had come back (thus making him a ‘timed’ player for Chelsea) we wouldn’t have all forgiven him. You shouldn’t just accept what’s going on here because the game will end up on PS4 eventually – the morals of it are all wrong.

    2) The Uncharted games are fantastic. The Tomb Raider 2013 reboot has its fair share of critics but in my opinion it was also a really good game for a series that had been away for some time. Regardless, let’s not forget that Tomb Raider came first, so claiming that the 2013 game is an Uncharted-clone is just ignorant.

  • The Night Rider

    PS4 owner here. Don’t really care for a few reasons:
    1) The last game was a braindead shooter and massively inferior to Anniversary
    2) We’re getting Uncharted remastered collection, then UC4.

    • Steve Wright

      I can see why the reboot had its critics, but for what it’s worth I think “braindead shooter” is a bit harsh. The game has a lot going for it and I thoroughly enjoyed it because I just played it as a video game as opposed to a Tomb Raider game. Arguably it didn’t live up to its name but that doesn’t make it a bad game in my opinion.

  • Norsethunder

    Hypocrites is what I see, SF going to sony is fine and Tomb Raider did not start on Sony .

  • Norsethunder

    Timed later release for PC, its not going to PS4 or PS3 ever. MS is funding the game, and involved in development.

  • Dr.Ghettoblaster

    Bottom line, it’d be a poor business decision NOT to eventually bring RotTR to PS4 keeping half your fan/user base alienated/abandoned on well established Playstation branding. I have to believe it’ll come to PS4 at some point, not excited when I think about how many years it might take though…

    • Steve Wright

      Agreed, they can’t afford not to bring it to PlayStation, but has the damage already been done?

  • Sage

    it’s not an exclusive, it’s only a timed exclusive. I’m sure they have the other platform versions ready for release but they need to wait until the exclusivity period expires. We don’t know how long it is, but I suspect only a few months.
    Yes I believe it will sell less on release if it’s only for the Xbox, but I don’t care aslong as I get to play it on my Playstation.

  • kreator

    You could use the same headlind about Street Fighter 5. And tha game is EXCLUSIVE to the PS3.5! At least, Tomb Raider is TIMED EXCLUSIVE to the X1!

  • Sweetbrandigirl2004

    This game is Destine to FAIL ! It’s a sad end to our favorite female Tomb Raider !

  • Kamren Zinzow

    Pretty stupid this is an Xbox exclusive considering the game started on PlayStation years before the original Xbox was even a thought…
