No I didn't. All I know is Microsoft claimed this is going to be exclusive, they didn't say timed exclusive.....AFAIK. So I assumed they somehow managed to bribe Enix to keep it on their platform. If it's timed exclusive, that's a different story, fine. Full exclusive, then that would have been the dumbest move by Microsoft ever since their reveal blunder
The only time exclusives make sense, is if the game is a first party title that has been funded by the respective companies, as in own those developer groups. Every third party should be on all platforms really.
If it was a full exclusive how would it be a dumb move by MS? Tomb Raider is one of the biggest names ever.
WAS one of the biggest frachises ever, I suppose it is unfair to say it isn't a big name anymore, because it always will be a big name but tomb raider is past its best by a long way. Tomb raider, for the first 3 or 4 games was a game that pretty much everybody was playing, everyone I knew anyway, now it just isn't, the sales are probably higher than the originals but only because the entire games market has grown at an amazing rate, if this tomb raider was like the old ones in terms of success then it would have got GTA V level of sales, to be honest Tomb Raider lost its crown with Angel of darkness, however it was on the way down before them, some people didn't like 4 and fewer liked 5, I hated 5, disliked 4 when I was a kid but like it now. I liked the new TR, but it wasn't as good as the first 3 in my opinion. Took me 10-11 hours for TR2013, and 30 mins of that were spent on figuring out the buttons for QTEs. The first tomb raider, well I didn't complete it til 2012 and I got it in 1996 (when I was a kid i gave up on a level cannot remember which). But in terms of playtime for my 2nd runthrough (which I have a steam figure for unlike my 1st) it was 12-14 hours. A lot of time in the old tomb raiders was spent thinking "can I make that jump?" or "I didn't see that ledge" or "I didn't know that was climbable" whereas the new TR you press a button to find all that out, a fine feature since it is optional, I like it, but I like the challenge of old a bit more. However TRoriginal's controls on pc were designed by the anti-christ, and controller no helpy.
It would be a bad move for CD for sure though, to release it on the 2nd lowest selling platform. But hey ho it is only timed, and for me, PC or PS4 doesnt matter, I will probably get it on PC like all the other games.
