So Microsoft's BIG announcement was timed exclusive to a game nobody cares for?

While it did manage to cause a stir initially I am pretty sure most people did not really care as evident by how well the last Tomb Raider game sold. That said this was Microsoft's BIG announcement? The only reason Microsoft's press conference was even remotely noteworthy was because of the ****storm that particular announcement caused and now we find out that it is only a timed exclusive, the best they could do at Gamescom was announce a timed exclusive and pretend it was a full exclusive?

No wonder Microsoft is losing the console battle this gen.

I buy used games. I own a PS4, so according to Gamefaqs law I now have the right to act like a complete douchebag on the Xbox One board.

I think the big media update was a bigger deal than that.

I think the big flood of care that happened yesterday that shook the internet proves your claim of 'nobody cares' to be wrong GlaDang. ;)

As for it being the big announcement, can't say. It was a bit of a shocker, true, but then one could consider the CoD: AW console 'big', with it being the first console with a 1TB HDD. That Halo fluff could have been it?

Has Microsoft actually confirmed what it's big announcement actually was?

Never mind all the timed exclusives Sony has announced over the year right? Regardless if it's exclusive, timed exclusive or multiplatform, at the end of the day it was a game that was projected to come on the Xbox One anyways so it's not like they lost anything if it's not exclusive.

I don't get why they keep paying companies for timed exclusives... People aren't going to switch consoles over a timed exclusive. Waste of money imo

Over 6,000,000 of the game were sold. People care about the series.
