how those huindreds of thousands of PS4/X1 players that paid $60 for Tomb Raider Definitive "Crapier" Edition feel?

thats one of the reasons a $400 console already costs $300 more than an equivalent power PC in the first year

I saw that deal. That's a fucking bargain for one of the best action games of the past couple years. A little bit better than the $60 PS4/Xbone versions.

Who cares? Anyone can wait and find deals. Except on PC, you have no ownership and you can't even return them when you're done or don't like them.

Ownership of the disc >>> Paying slightly less

Please, build me a $100 PC that can run this game.

@SuddenlyTragic: No its not, the PS4 /X1 version was completely retooled to take advantage of next gen hardware. The PC version is basically a higher resolution version of the original product. PC fanboys get away with so much hyperbole it's not even funny.

"Running with the ultimate preset enabled and the original TressFX in action, it's clear that the Definitive Edition delivers an upgrade in select areas, but fails to trump the PC game in all respects. Certainly, when it comes to running at 1080p60 - or with even higher resolutions and frame-rate - no other platform can truly offer a PC-beating experience."

@lostrib: They also said the definitive edition had some advantages. Fine, I'll stand corrected, but I'll also stand by my statement that PC fanboys don't get called out on their BS as much as they should. Once saw a hermit say that Vanilla Crysis looks better than next gen console games. Time to let go of that 2007 Dinosaur.

And this is why console gaming costs you more, way more than PC gaming.

in no more than 12 months from the day you pick a console you will be spending about $300 more than a equivalent PC owner just to get a downgraded version of every game

@SuddenlyTragic: My point wasn't just about Tomb Raider. It was also about the hyperbole PC fanboys present. They act like slight upgrades are a generational difference. No point in comparing 1000 dollar rigs to 400 dollar consoles anyway. There should be a bigger difference.

What are you on about now? The subject was getting a deal on Tomb Raider...

Real stupidity is thinking any one platform is perfect and all others "stupid". But hey, that's what SW is made for. To round up people like you.

I'd rather buy Borderlands 2 GOTY for $10. And I own BL2 on 360 and paid $60 for it. Tomb Raider was meh to the extreme. Way too much reliance on QTE's and torture porn.

I quadruple dipped. Got it free originally on igc with PS3 and then bought the 360 because I preferred the Xbox controller. The PC version for me was free because of an expiring $5 credit and I had to get it on PS4 because I wanted the new face. Great game.

Funny, I seriously don't remember there being that many QTE's in the game. I understand the torture porn though.

@speedfreak48t5p: I know the torture porn movie genre and I 100% the game. There was nowhere near torture porn scenes in this game. Apparently seeing a female videogame character get a little banged up traversing different terrain really jars some people...

I feel fine because I've played both the PS3 and PS4 versions. The Definitive Edition isn't "crapier" or even crappier. It's actually significantly better in the graphics department and includes all DLC, which I didn't bother getting with my PS3 version. Also, I had a $30 gift card making it so I personally only paid $30 for it. Then add in that my PS4 copy allows me to stream my game online, record cool moments and then upload them, as well as remote play when my daughter takes over the TV, and it was well worth it. I gifted my PS3 version to my niece as I don't need two versions of the game.

Those with a capable gaming PC that haven't tried this game out yet, I highly recommend it. It's truly a great game and not only worth the $5 from the sale but worth the $60 they originally charged.

my first past gen console was a x360 and its now the console i hate most in my entire life

i also dont consider x1 as a next gen console since its about 60% power of a ps4 wich is the lower bar of next gen machines

let me help you with the math:

$400 PC like mine

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=naO0daBZeRo

or gamespot's

http://www.gamespot.com/articles/can-we-build-a-gaming-pc-on-a-console-budget/1100-6418829/

or digital foundry's (things are more expensive in the UK)

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2014-the-next-gen-digital-foundry-pc

or $500 if you´re "brain dead" and want to pay for OS

+ extra controller $15 (wireless x360 controller)

+ 8 games on average $20 8x15=$120

total = $635 after one year (if youre brain dead or 535 if not)

PS4 $400

+60 for extra controller

+50 for PS+

+ 8 games on average $45 45x8= $360

total = $870

"but i got games for free on PS+"

well, my U$400 PC's GPU came with free copies of Tomb Raider, Saints Row IV, Far Cry 3

@leandrro: You try awfully hard to still look like a dumbass. You refuse to put the OS in the price regardless that doesn't change the fact you are showing BF4 with dips in the 20s which is worse then the PS4. Do you think a 7870 is going to outperform a PS4 the whole generation? There is already games that it falls behind on right now. Then lets not even mention the $40 dollar motherboard.

The rest of your cost is based solely on the price of games which can vary based on both when and where you get them. I can get buy 2 get one free on games at target. You never see those deals on NEW pc games.

Great deal on Tomb raider, I'm pretty sure I got this for free a while back, can't remember, I've made so many small purchases on steam that it all gets lost.

@farrell2k: Except they won't outperform it by a lot and no pc with 4gb of ram is going to outperform a PS4 for long. You are using some of the most bare bone Shit parts. A 10$ mouse and KB? Really?

The hassle of putting legos together for 30 minutes? You must be the type of person that puts a triangle into a square hole.
