It is pretty funny. I have a PS4 and Wii U (planning to get a Xbox One eventually), and it's hilarious seeing all the reassurance topics about games like Rise of the Tomb Raider, Titanfall, Bayonetta 2, and games like that pop up. Seriously, you're not entitled to EVERY game just cuz you have one console. Ppl need to get over themselves.

I'm starting to think even though Xbox players aren't really in to Tomb Raider as much as Play Station players are, its a way to try to give interest into the Xbox players to make them stay, because face it, the console sales speak for themselves. They could use it, but this is just my opinion.

I think it would of caused less of a fuss had it went the other way around but still upset a lot of peopl. This just came out of no where and honestly doesnt make any sense for a anyone involved.

I doubt SE will sell many copies unless microsoft really turns this around so unless microsoftwrote a massive check for what im gonna assume is timed exclusivity it wont make em much.

For microsoft I cant see spending that kinda dough on a third party exclusivity u less that game can move alot of SKUs and while TR im sure will be a good game I dont think people are gonna buy a X1 to play it.

And obviously it screws over the majority of TRs fanbase so I just dont seeany upside for any
one but fanboys

The RotTR trailer got tons of attention at E3. You must not have paid attention. Pretty sure there was even a fair share of Best of E3 type of awards.

I'm a Roku fanboy so it hurts to see the Roku lose.

Honestly I don't think people care that the game is exclusive so much as the blatant money hatting...and then Crystal Dynamics completely absurd "logic" for doing so.

It basically boils down to this: Microsoft paid us truck loads of money to say "**** you, **** you, oh, and you too. Definitely **** you...but thanks for supporting us in the past guys!!!".

They basically pulled a Don Mattrick: "Sorry you wont be able to play this new game we're releasing, but you can still buy our other games!!"

And then to top it all off, we KNOW this game is still going to end up on the PS4. This whole charade is just...ugh, it's irritating as all hell.

No one benefits from this garbage except 14 year old forum trolls.
Microsoft: "Gamers are thieves that must be monitored".
Sony: "Gamers are customers we care about."

You mean the same guys getting paid by MS to have their streamers talk nice about the XB1 said that MS won? STUNNING!

Nope it doesn't. Sony will tell you all about it, exponentially outselling their competition to the point where there's a 5m gap in less than 12 months. What's it going to be at the less than 24 months mark? Probably 30m vs. 10m, so a nice 20m gap.
