I mean like the head of xbox had said they would be more direct and honest, apparently that's not towards transparency and clarity.

but yet the debacle around tomb raider is that it wasn't clear if it was a timed exclusive or what have you

and yet it came out that in fact it was a timed exclusive

it's pretty bad that the head of xbox promised that after the whole drm scandal which in itself was horribly unclear he would be more transparent pretty much lied

why even go the trouble in clarifying it in the first place,

that was the point, the backslash could've all been avoided had he directly stated it was a timed exclusive

Because people looked at the same thing, read it a hundred different ways and proceeded to immediately freak the f*** out.

It probably wouldn't have been such a huge misunderstanding if it wasn't for the CD message to its fans that made it seem like it was 100% exclusive.

That definitely didn't help at all.

It shouldn't have been so dubious in the first place.
Sony made it clear what was timed and what wasn't. Microsoft did that as well, except with the Tomb Raider thing.

Wait what debacle? He said i would be playing the sequel next fall. That stands true and is all that concerns me.

If some salty ponys have their dresses on and crying about this, thats on them. Theyll be busy playing the same exact game... with a guys ass instead! Lolololol

"Bad" is a matter of perspective.

They made the PS4 break sales records.
