im certainly not getting a console either kiadaw.
1. no space for it.
2. i have been a pc gamer for a very, very long time.
3. i dont like the controller + playing a game like this with a controller.
this has nothing to do with liking the game. everyone here have their principles and preferred platform to play on. and as lord mentioned: not everyone here like to spend money for a different platform.
I do not mind a thumbs down, but at least provide some reasons? I think the thumb down is a bit unfriendly without an explaination. Just saying.
Non am I happy with the exclusive decision, because like many here, I wished to get in on a non Xbox platform.
What I am saying is that, there is very little people here that cannot play the game out of financial issue.
Like I mentioned before, you can choose not to buy it because of principle or not wanting an extra console, its someone call (I never said it was the wrong call!)
They can also choose to wait for it to arrived later ( which is probably gonning to happen).
As a matter of fact, I am waiting out PC version.
Maybe its not the best way to present it, but my argument is still valid that if you do not mind missing out the game, you probably do not want it hard enough (which is actually ok).
But like I mentioned, it will probably came out on other platform, at the worst just be patient.
Fair reasons. I mention everyone have their reasons. I am just saying if anyone absolutely wanted to play Tomb Raider, its possible.
Maybe my very 'direct' answering is feeling like I am lecturing people here or something, but its not. I will be careful with my choice of words in future.
I am a getting a bit nuts over people thinking I am a MS mouthpiece or fanboy, or under their payroll LOL. Just to get it off my chest, I am not any of these. If the game came exclusive to PS4, I would have said the same (replacing MS with Sony, & X1 & 360 with PS3 &4) .

Psst, Kiadaw would you be so kind as to edit those three posts together?
I totally understand what you're saying, but it's really not as simple as just paying for a brand new console, especially one that (fairly) has a bit of a rocky history
yes, your wording did give this impression that we should get a xbone, kiadaw.
but now you clarified it.
I have edit my posts, & add them together as requested.
Yeah, when you think about all the people behind the scenes, it is a little disheartening to think that all their work is being overshadowed by corporate wishwash
- But as someone pointed out somewhere, PS4 may be in the lead right now, but new gen is far from being over, things could change drastically down the line
Shanghai! Hong Kong! Egg Fu Yung! Fortune cookie always wrong!
I experienced an ego bruising message by Unreal editor that said my frame rates are below 20fps 80% of the time in the last 10 minutes, & will automatic switch to low quality mode or something along this line. LOL. I ran some of the sample projects at the marketplace & they were just slow, choppy.
Not to mentioned development 101, you need a significantly more powerful machine for development than the platform(s) you wanted the game to run on.
So it make sense that I buy ROTR on the PC since for sure it will run the best (visuals). Obviously its a preference thing, but I will definitely use the controller. I have a 360 controller for PC so I am set.
Though a bit selfish admittedly, I am disappointed it was also developed for 360 (possibly PS3). I just hope they ultlise a next gen engine for the next gen & PC versions, otherwise, the game will look dated compare to the other big games coming in 2015 Holidays.
Ah, we've had this discussion about the exclusivity myth many times, heh. TR was never an "exclusive". See the link EK provided.
Using your line of reasoning, you could also say that TR9 was excluded from Wii/WiiU, since the previous games were released on that console. But it's not as simple as that.
But since you clarified what you meant in the meantime, I no longer object to what you wrote Well, apart from the "everyone here can afford to buy an xbox" bit, which is simply not true.
The only platforms that had exclusive content btw were PC/Mac/360

Tomb Raider II: The Golden Mask - PC/Mac
Tomb Raider III: The Lost Artifact - PC/Mac
Tomb Raider IV: The Last Revelation: The Times Exclusive Bonus Level - PC
