    I wonder if the exclusivity for Tomb Raider has to do with all of that stuff regarding Sony selling off their Square-Enix shares a while back?

    Microsoft is gonna end up looking the fool because most of what they snag as "exclusive" they don't actually control and will ultimately end up on PS4, but Sony helps publish a lot of their exclusives so they will never see the light of day on a MS console. The only one that I see MS publishing that I will never be able to get on a PS4 is Scalebound, but I guess it will at least give Platinum another paycheck so I'll take that hit. Also Master Chief Collection will be coming out for PC (and Titanfall already has), so even if you're a big fan of things that are real MS exclusives that won't come to PS4 you still don't have to get an Xbox One if you have a PC to play them on. I'm super into Cuphead's style and lucky for me it's not published by MS and they've said that it's only a timed exclusive to Xbox One and Steam, so I see an eventual PS4/Vita release as probable. Superhot was kickstarted so there really isn't any reason that can't come to PS4 eventually either.

    I'm an Xbox One owner and I don't care about Tomb Raider. I bought the first one on PC and still haven't finished it, so I doubt I'll bother to purchase this one. That was a complete waste of money on Microsoft's part imo. On par with theridiculous beta exclusivity both consoles keep wasting money on. Every other announcement was completely underwhelming. That evolve segment in particular was brutally awful.

    I'm confused, is there going to be a PC version of the Halo remakes or not?
  • GOD - August 12, 2014 10:16 p.m.

    "the Halo TV Channel for Windows PCs. It's a hub for all things Halo, and you can launch MC Collection from it, so that pretty much confirms a PC version, right?" Honestly sounds like they're trying to cover up that it'll eventually be on PC but retailers keep leaking it and making them have to try and deny it with clever wording.

    "BUT IT'S ONLY A TIMED EXCLUSIVE" Exclusives nowadays isn't meant to justify a console, it's meant to get fanboys butthurt.
  • Vonter - August 12, 2014 11:55 a.m.

    Except Nintendo, which makes people mad both in the hardcore and mobile front. Anyways, yeah, most of M$ games seem like time exclusives, at least I can tell more from Sony's side since several of their exclusives has Sony as publisher.
  • Vonter - August 12, 2014 11:57 a.m.

    Sorry I didn't read your post below. Also I'm a little glad Sony showed more games that might appeals to the Nintendo fan. I just hope their not like Knack, which also promised much but was BAD.

    Tomb Raider was a smart play of words. Exclusive in 2015, exclusive for 2015
  • morgartjr - August 12, 2014 9:40 a.m.

    Yawn. I guess I expected more from MS. Still no reason to buy an XBO. Unless Sony had a ground shattering presentation, there won't be a reason to buy a ps4 either. Bummer.
  • Author - August 12, 2014 10:03 a.m.

    What kind of games do you exactly want if neither has any that you like? LOL
  • morgartjr - August 12, 2014 10:27 a.m.

    Well I won't ever buy console exclusives, so if TR is really exclusive (not timed), I won't purchase it. Sunset Over drive had never piqued my interest. The indies look nice but MS had a bad history with those, so I'll wait and see. CoD is a McGame, I couldn't care less about that one. I guess I was hoping for more, or a price drop, or an announcement of some super shocking new thing.
  • Jackonomics2.0 - August 12, 2014 11:18 a.m.

    "I wont ever buy Console exclusives" Your literally missing the entire point of console wars, exclusives is why we should buy their systems when they are %75 the same shit, and even more towards Nintendo because you only ever want a Nintendo system because of their new quirky approach and exclusives.
  • morgartjr - August 12, 2014 12:19 p.m.

    I don't care about the console wars. I want to play a game. I want it to be the best value for my money and be able to play the games released for it, but I will never support exclusive titles because I don't feel those are good business practice for consumers.
  • Author - August 12, 2014 5:09 p.m.

    Does that include first party exclusives?
  • morgartjr - August 12, 2014 6:16 p.m.

    Yes.
  • TurkeyOnRye - August 13, 2014 9:47 a.m.

    You're missing out on some damn fine games by being bull-headed. So no Gears of War? Uncharted? Last of Us? I guess that means no Nintendo first-party stuff either? That's kind of sad.
  • morgartjr - August 13, 2014 9:53 a.m.

    I had played Gears and Uncharted before I decided to wise up, and I have seen some "let's plays" as well, so I get it, I even had a wii and some games there too at one point. But I am a consumer, and I will speak with my dollars if I do not like something.
  • TurkeyOnRye - August 13, 2014 10:30 a.m.

    Fair enough. Stick to your morals. I just think you're missing out on some excellent gaming.
