Microsoft needs to do more of this. If this is a console " war" then big boy moves like this need to be made - especially when you're losing. Of course it'll make it to PC though , but we all know PC is not the X1's main competition right now.

And I bet this deal is recent because if not they would have announced it at E3.

The whole "welcome to" doesn't justify not being pissed off.

Yeah, but that's irrelevant, Rise of the Tomb Raider is a SEQUEL. They bought a previously announced SEQUEL that people were already looking forward to, fans of the franchise on OTHER PLATFORMS.

It's bullshit. Utter bullshit.

Sony and MS can buy all the exclusives they want, just not a fucking sequel to a well established genre with a decently varied fanbase.

A lot of panties in a twist over this..That's good. Maybe the hypocrisy will stop..Who am I kidding?

Sony can do whatever it wants and these clowns will gladly accept it. You can't have everything you selfish babies.

In this case you actually can, you'd just have to buy an Xbox. First world problems, yo.

Meh. If I've learned anything, it's that the word "exclusive" always comes with an * when it comes to XBone. Not really sure why AJ is this worked up.

You mean from business standpoint? Yes and no. From MS: yes. But it makes no sense for SE to accept the offer. They are literally losing money there, no question.

I guess publishers these dyas are SO low in self esteem and confidence in their own releases that taking a smaller upfront pay is more important than higher, ambitious amounts of success.

But as you know, business is not OUR prerogative. We are the consumers, we voice our opinion in the hopes that it will change something. Money is one thing; relation with your customer is another. Something that people are beginning to forget these days.

Lol'd true, it's so painfully obvious the game will release on the PC/PS4 at a later time.

Oh Joe, that was awesome! Gotta love this guy, and he's 100% correct. Not that sony hasn't done the very same thing to other game devs though. ALL OF THESE FUCKERS (devs/pubs and console makers) are basically money vampires hunting for the biggest bag of blood (money). Keep that in mind at all times.

I'm going to pass on clicking on the video. I'm not really interested in watching another PS fanboy cry themselves to sleep over the Tomb Raider announcement. It will probably be on the PC at some point next year given MS's 3rd party exclusive track record.

What about the new silent hill game? There are rumors that it is going to be a PS4 exclusive.

$$$ talks. BS walks. If I owned the rights to TR and MS accidentally dropped some money at my feet, I would do the same thing and call them my friends too. Bet Angry Joe would too.

I'm not a big TR fan and I own an Xbone and 360, so I'm not worked up about the new TR coming to 360/Xbone.

I may watch later tho.

yeah that was pretty good but i hated the reboot so much that i stopped playing after ~2h and that is something that never happen with any game. worst purchase in years. the exclusivity of this title says f*ckall to me but those who care, its probably a timed exclusive because there's no such thing as true exclusivity outside Halo spam and Forza spam when it comes to MS consoles.

I don't think so.

to the others: And Sony has more first party franchises/games than MS...so it's not like Sony just goes out and buys all these 3rd party titles. Theres a difference.

Oh...well...I for one don't care too much for the TR franchise.

That said....I completely understand where everyone is coming from being pissed off. If Sony were to do this....I would be completely understanding of the other way around.

I just don't think it's good practice to buy up 3rd party titles.

Cry me a river lmao. Wow how pathetic is this? He looks like a straight retard and is making himself look pretty dumb.People complain about Xbox doesn't have alot of Exclusives and now that we are getting Exclusives people wanna b*tch, moan and complain.

Face the facts, XBOX has better exclusives this year and next year coming up.

Tomb Raider

Titan Fall (Exclusive to PS4 IDC what you say)

Dead Rising 3 (Decent and addictive zombie slaughter game)

Forza Motorsport & Horizon 2 (Best cars game period)

Quantum Break (Looks very good from what I saw of the demo)

Halo: Master Chief Collection (OMG YASS)

Sunset Overdrive (Looks VERY fun with friends, hours of good play IMO)

Fable Legends (Might be decent IDK, not too much into Fable anymore. I'll wait for a review)

Halo 5: Guardians (Please be great)

Scalebound (idek)

Microsoft and Xbox clearly has better Exclusives.
