How do you feel about not being able to play Beneath the Ashes and Lara's Shadow? And what are you going to do about it?

The reason I'm asking is because I dont have Xbox Live and don't want to be the only one to not play the game.

1. Dont really care, but that's mainly due to not even playing the main game yet. Still have to wait couple of weeks before I'll be able to play it.

2. I'm not going to do anything about it. 360 is an waste of money to me. I'll just youtube the cutscenes or whatever.

Have fun those who can play it. :wve:

And what are you going to do about it?
Cry myself to sleep at night, camp out and picket in front of Eidos headquarters, then go to California and club Toby Gard with a frozen fish.

Kidding. Nada. I might betch a little.

EIDOS doesn't love me and my PS3.

And what are you going to do about it?
I'm going to give Doppelhoe a call and send her to EIDOS and CD HQ.
She knows exactly what to do :whi: :mis:

Thorir
03-12-08, 16:02
I was disappointed at first... :(
It felt like back stabbing the fans.

But then I played TRU, and the game really wasn't great.
So I don't think the DLC will be anything remarkable either. I simply don't have faith CD can make anything fantastic. :rolleyes:

I'll just look at videos on Youtube and be satisfied with that. :)
Would be nice to have the CHOICE of DLC though. It's simply unfair.

I was too busy enjoying Underworld to think about it much recently, but now that the focus is back on the DLC I'm starting to feel a little disgruntled again ...

As to what I'll do about it ... moan for a bit and then just try to get over it. There's no way I'm going out and buying an Xbox - even if I had that kind of money to spare, I can think of plenty more important things I could spend it on.

NatlaCrazyness
03-12-08, 16:39
1. Oh well, I have TR3 which is better than those! :mad:
2. Make a visit to Sophia Leigh on TR3 and say that she's the most beutiful woman on the PlayStation 1 and PC 1998 world.

Do you need goldmembership too? Than it will definitely be more expansive than a whole game and than it won´t be worth it. I will just buy an XBOX Arcade then.

Trigger_happy
03-12-08, 16:53
I don't care about the special treatment the Xbox version is getting- I haven't even bought the game. If Eidos isn't going to give the PS3 version equal treatment, I'm not giving them my money.

Fallen.Angel
03-12-08, 16:53
Kind of annoyed/but at the same, I really don't care, since there's nothing I can do about it, which sucks. I have other things to look forward to, anyways.

03-12-08, 20:38
1 - Annoyed. I see little point in making a multi-platform game, and then making the Downloadable Content exclusive to the 360.

2 - I'll probably wait until the 360 is redundant, and then pick one up cheaply and hope the DLC is still available. But that would also require me to buy a 360 copy of Underworld. Meh, I'll probably just YouTube it.

Hmm .. these episodes sound interesting
And i'm quite annoyed about those are dlc only

let's assume someone played the pc-version of the game .. without having bought it .. but thinks of it worthy to buy .. then he heares about the 360-version witch offers more content (for payment) .. maybe he will wait until both episodes are done and then buys a 360 and TR:U + DLC episodes :D

There isn't anything I can really do about it, I'm just looking forward to TR9 (Which I don't want to be released for a while yet) and hoping it doesn't end up 360 exclusive, cuz then I'll be annoyed. . .

03-12-08, 23:11

When I played the game for the first time I was so happy that seriously thought that the quality of the game deserved maybe (depending on the size of the DLC) bought an XBOX to have this exclusive content. :)
Little by little, sometimes this forum is so depressing in its valuations:o, I have lost the illusion. :(
I feel sorry not to have that content, but I'll be very careful to know whether they really are desirable levels to play.:)

I have a 360 but without Live and I have no plans on going Live just for some content, but it is annoying you have to pay to see things should be in the main game IMO, but I'll probs Youtube it anyway :D

TRLara Croft
04-12-08, 00:40
I have an XBOX and I'm going to tell you guys to stop complaining but I see what you mean.
But it's like this with EVERY game so why complain about it? You have to pay another 40 or so bucks just to get it any ways? Just watch it on youtube. If you want it that bad then fork up the cash and get yourself an xbox. Just be happy with what you got.
But, like I said, I see what you mean. I can't say it's fair... but those of you who play on PC, well, you get those dandy saved games downloads. Those of you have PS3 you get kick:cen: graphics. Everything comes with a plus and a minus... Extras like small add ons is just one of those minuses. But you have pluses that you can't see because you're to angry about getting an add on.

I ain't giving Microsoft any money other than my computer, and that's only because I'm too used to Windows.

Agreed...Even from the small trailer for it that game already looks sick :yik::yik:

I'm not bothered by it at all...Don't really care...and if I had a 360, I wouldn't want to have to dish out more extra money just for 2 levels.

I've never played any other games before Legend so I'm playing like a Tomb Raider marathon where I'm trying my hand at the other games. So, that will give me my fix for quite some time :p

Now let me just finnish with this last level and I will be on my way replaying TR III for its 10th anniversary:)

thats right,I don't need your dlc,It will suck anyway:ton:

Before I bought a 360, I was planning on living life and I was upset at first but respected that Eidos needed money. :)

Elmer
04-12-08, 17:35
Haha, I don't care that I can not play it:p

I feel bad for everyone who eagerly wants to play it, but can't because of the strange decision of Eidos to make it Xbox360 exclusive.

This year I'm not going to game at all, and next year I'll happily continue my Metal Gear Solid 2 addiction:) (If I find enough time for that)

tranniversary119
04-12-08, 17:37
Hmm I don't think people seem to get it so let me explain. Microsoft, not Sony, came to them and asked them to do downloadable content payed for by them fully to release on xbox live. The only Sony I see in this is, "Not Sony". Therefore it isn't Eidos fault..there a business for god's sake. Of course when they got offered money to do it they would accept.

Rik Wessels
04-12-08, 18:14
If memory serves the DLC for Mass effect was also restricted to one platform only . But they had to reconsider that decision and it was released for all versions of the game . As games company you can't really pretend all those other players/buyers of your game simply don't exist ,imo.

It's not even about the quality- or lack thereof - of the extra content . It's a matter of making sure those PC/PS/WII owners will buy your next game .Very unlikely if you neglect them like this .

Now it seems like they prefer money rather than satisfying their fanbase and making the game they dream about.

Calling them petty names doesn't help though.
I'd rather see some positive convincing comments.
"€idos sucks! They better release the DLC for PS3 :mad:" comments do not help at all.

unhappy and I hope some kind soul with a 360 posts parts of it to youtube so that I can at least see it.

Wow... it almost seems unfair that I have a 360 but am not buying TRU for it, because I have a PC.... I can get the DLC if I want but I am not going to, and all those who want it can't get it!

Does that make me mean?

1. Very disappointed
2. Wait for and (kindly) demand a version for PC ;)

Exactly the same here. It's kind of understandable that the PS3 won't get anything if Microsoft owns the rights, but why shouldn't PC users be able to play the game? After all it's Microsoft who's behind Windows. But after all, if they made the DLC available for PCs, it would depend on the price whether I would buy it or not. I wouldn't give away more that 20 Euros for both DLC's, after Eidos slapped my face twice with the XBox-Rights and that short Underworld game.

I own a 360 but frankly the entire thing is rediculouse. Why make entire levels if they aren't going to be available for even half of the community?

1. Bothered, but calm.
2. Absolutely nothing.

I do not care for Eidos.

I have an XBOX and I'm going to tell you guys to stop complaining but I see what you mean.
But it's like this with EVERY game so why complain about it? You have to pay another 40 or so bucks just to get it any ways? Just watch it on youtube. If you want it that bad then fork up the cash and get yourself an xbox. Just be happy with what you got.
But, like I said, I see what you mean. I can't say it's fair... but those of you who play on PC, well, you get those dandy saved games downloads. Those of you have PS3 you get kick:cen: graphics. Everything comes with a plus and a minus... Extras like small add ons is just one of those minuses. But you have pluses that you can't see because you're to angry about getting an add on.

You wouldnt be saying that if you didnt have an oppi for the DLC. :)

Nope. If I had an XBox and had to pay for that "Gold Membership" in order to get the DLC, I would refuse to buy it. It's really an affront that you have to pay for that service. It's just like you would have to pay for entering a store. Imagine you would have to pay annually to go into a shop, that's ridiculous, no matter what "online content" is linked to that. I mean in shops you sometimes get free try-out drinks as well and don't pay for it. JUST RIDICULOUS, and I believe that it will stop a lot of people from buying the game WITH an XBox360.

If memory serves the DLC for Mass effect was also restricted to one platform only . But they had to reconsider that decision and it was released for all versions of the game . As games company you can't really pretend all those other players/buyers of your game simply don't exist ,imo.

It's not even about the quality- or lack thereof - of the extra content . It's a matter of making sure those PC/PS/WII owners will buy your next game .Very unlikely if you neglect them like this .

Actually that was because EA bought BioWare. Then EA published Mass Effect for the PC, not MS.

I'm glad they did, EA will make BioWare give the PS3 some love too down the road.

You do not have to pay for Gold Membership in order to access or download the DLC.
