But don’t take my word for it, here’s how Darrell Gallagher, head of studios at Crystal Dynamics, explained the decision to get into bed with Microsoft on the Tomb Raider Tumblr:
this just cracked me up

More developers should be like CD Project Red:
"We are treating all gamers equally. We'll not deliver exclusive content to any of the platforms, nor will we artificially delay release of the game on any of the platforms because somebody's paying us money for that. It's definitely against our values. We are not doing that."
It's been a while now and the whole series was rebooted in the meanwhile, but I played Underworld and never had the chance to see how Natla really dies in the end, how it feels to play the Doppleganger. Games tell stories. You can't expect me to believe that they care if we don't even get the full story to play. They DO care, are you sure?
Will not be buying this game even its on sale or used. I even have an Xbox One but I have a PS4 also. PlayStation is where I want my Tomb Raider. Its where a lot of us want it. A lot of us want it on PC also. Xbox releases have never bothered me, but it better be on the other 2 platforms as well. I'm looking forward to watching lets plays of this game
Now that they got their money, who's to say that this game is any good. What's the point? They have already been paid.
Not only does it hurt gamers but it hurts the industry. Itstead of making a great game and making a ton of money, they took the easy route and made good money.
If SE listened to their fans and didn't have their head up their $%^. They wouldn't need to even think about making deals like this.
EA and CD gave a big middle finger to ALL GAMERS and said "lets take a vacation,". That's great! Will they ever return? Probably not.
"Did somebody say 'vodka?'"
my wallet will vote for ps4 and only because microsoft was about to kill all the freedom of all gamers last year. M$ tryed hard but at the end gamers won that fight. ( with help from sony)
Never forget this war last year - if sony didnt choose the players it would be all over now.
Gamers out there!! Never forget this!!
Once or even if it is announced for PS4 I will preorder/buy it. Mainly because I do want the TR franchise to continue. I am just showing with my money the system I prefer. You know, if it this whole thing was about system limits like it was with Sega and Playstation for TR2 then fair enough. One particular system couldn't handle it/was much harder to develop for with improvements. Both the X1 and PS4 and most certainly PC can all handle it so the rest is just business reason.
A little overly dramatic for my tastes, but I am holding off for the technically superior PS4 version, and if its not improved, then we'll know they spread themselves too thin across multiple plat
However I am a first generation gamer, old school I remember the Atari 2600 and the TSR 80. As such I am not swayed by shiny things so it will be easy to boycott the game and will not buy it or an Xbox one. Perhaps if the game comes out on other platforms I may reverse my decision but for now it stands.
Sounds like BiPoLaR_X hasn't seen the news of it being confirmed as a timed release yet, maybe. Regardless of the reason they might not buy, everyone's entitled to buy, or not to buy the game....PlayStation is where I want my Tomb Raider. Its where a lot of us want it. A lot of us want it on PC also. Xbox releases have never bothered me, but it better be on the other 2 platforms as well. I'm looking forward to watching lets plays of this game
Jurre, also let's not perpetuate the argument. Please everyone stay on target... which is not each other
The posts in question have been deleted. Please do not continue things here.
I do understand everything, Murph. I don't mean to be rude, but since day one I've empathised, sympathised and agreed with a lot of what everyone's been saying and I'm quite tired of defending and repeating myself.
I'm just really tired of all of this; yes, I understand everyone is upset and for good reason, too. I just wish we can all come to terms with the fact that we can't change what's happened and instead, keep an eye on development and go back to actually talking about Tomb Raider. At least for a little while.
I don't really understand why I was reprimanded for apologising and suggesting that maybe next time, one shouldn't be so quick to make accusations.
I respect you and your word as a staff member, The Hylden, and I hope you don't take my response as insubordination, I just feel like I had to defend myself for a moment as I felt you inadvertently took it out of context.
Wanting people to move when it's basically still so fresh in their minds is not entirely reasonable IMHO.
Remember what I told you about that fanboy article you reacted to
Now, please, let's move on, as my colleague said
Edit: TH posted while I was writing this. Sorry for accidentally "doubling down", heh.
Every time I hear the phrase "vote with your wallet," all I can picture is people putting their wallets into ballet boxes.
"Did somebody say 'vodka?'"
HA, that actually wouldn't even be such a bad metaphor, given the high level of corruption in today's governments. The voting public indeed might as well just throw bank notes into the ballet boxes
