HI, I just heard that the PC version of AOD may not be released until the end of July!!! I called Gamestop and EBgames, both places told me their computer gives them July 27 dates.
This Blows!!!!

I am seriously thinking that they are trying to push it mainly for the PS2, and hoping to sell more, they are holding back the PC version. Tough cheese, you guys, I'm NOT buying a PS2. Maybe it's some deal they have going with Sony... Who knows..

Agreed. It's the silence that's provoking the most frustration.

Typical

Actually, this is what I heard originally about two months ago from GAME. I grow more sceptical about its release each minute. Any more news like this and im buying Black Hawk Down (game) instead.

Are these rumours just a load of nonsence to confuse & annoy people?

maybe if it is delayed again, this could be good news for PC users, this could indicate that they are fixing the bugs and glitches that the PS2 is having, (they might even take three more months to reconfigure the control system and cameras) but then again, someone said that they have already hit the production line.

This is beyond rediculous now, if it is true (I will reserve judgement until any offical announcements are made)

Maybe this could all be a bad dream http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yikes.gif

I am really curios as to how much money Core & Eidos have spent on this product so far, especially if it has gone to production and then recalled.

Totally Sick & fed up at the moment, sorry if I sound a little pessimistic.

Here's a wild guess! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

If CoL was rescheduled for the end of July, maybe the release for the PC was pushed back until July to corresponde with CoL.

I've heard that it wasn't even gold yet at this point, so maybe they'll just let it coincide with CoL.

I along with Khandi, will not buy a PS2, So, if thats the only format they are releasing it on... Good Bye Lara.

This is not good news at all. I was expecting maybe a 2-3 week delay at most. But there's nothing we can really do about it. Guess we'll all just have to suck it up and deal with the bad news. It's still quite a disappointment. http://www.planetsmilies.com/smilies/sad/sad25.gif

Thanks, tlr! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/flirt.gif

And, yes, the most annoying things about this whole ordeal is the lack of communication between Core/Eidos and we the fans/buyers. *sighs*

I bought Riddle of the Sphinx, while I was out shopping with my dad, and I hope it keeps me occupied until the PC release of AoD. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/music2.gif

Well, I'm not gonna let any of this news upset me until we hear this straight from Eidos. I can't stand all these rumors! Some say it'll come out this Friday, now we're talkin' next month!? I am soooooo confused!!! :confused:

Well I really hope that this is only a rumor, but it seems that all the rumors have proven true thus far. I hope this is an exception. Well, have fun PS2 players! lol

25-06-03, 02:47
Well I'm about to rent AOD and PS2. If the game is not released on Friday. I just hate to wait any longer.
Of course I'll still buy the PC AOD. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

I'm doin' something like that too Ms.LadyCroft. My friend is buying it for her PS2 on Saturday, so she's gonna bring it over and stay the night so we can play it here at my house since the PC version keeps getting delayed.

This is just another reason to sell more ps2's. Eb in Lexington Ky says it's in and it will be on the shelves Friday morning. I asked for a copy but no luck. I hate to say it but it looks bad for us pc gamers. If ps2 was that buggy we are in for a treat. Lets see how us $300 ati 9700 users have problems with AOD. I'll tell you friday morning.

Well tomorrow I'm going down to the store and getting my money back.

They can have their unopened collector's edition dvd back and I'll take back my $50.

At this point I don't believe they will release a pc version.

I see that Amazon UK have changed their release dates to 4th July also ... :( Yesterday they were still showing 27th June.

Lets be honest. If this was a new game there would be announcements all over the place. Its not and they know it will sell buy the truckload no matter what they say.

In a month or two all the delays will be forgotten. I always thought that the closer to the film would make sense though.

Cheers

This is terrible PR for Core. Forget Eidos they are just interested in the money. I just wish EA would buy Core.

To me this delay and lack of offical announcements is because Eidos do not want their stock prices to dip so if they put out misinformation then will the investors even bother to check that the game has not streeted in Europe.

That must be why they let it out in the US. I'm puzzled though as Sony control PS2 release dates and QA. It is very unlike them to allow a buggy PS2 game out as in the past they have delayed anything they are unsure of.

At least when the PC version does come out it will not have any slowdowns/loading delays plus you can also customize the controls.

I think in future the PC should have a separate TR game as the PS2 is technically about 4 years obsolete. The only reason it is still supported is because there are so many in the world so game sales can be very high. It is easier to make a game for the PC as the resources are almost unlimited yet trying to get something to run on a PS2's 32MB Ram and slow DVD drive is very time consuming. Modern PC's are 2/3 times more powerful and way ahead of any console's hardware specs.

As Tomb Raider originated on the PC first Core should in future get that version completed then port to the PS2 instead of spending ages trying to squeeze it into obsolete hardware.

FYI: I love the PS2 and still buy games for mine (later this week I pick up RTX Red Rock & Evil Dead FOB). But I also know & recognise its limitations/drawbacks.
