I don't know, you must be right, I heard it has to do with your country but it's too compicated to find out or even care about.

Bottom line: Exclusivities are stupid and should be stopped, plus, this confusion would be enough to make someone change their mind and not pre-order it after all (I'm talking about non-fans of the series) .

No it wouldn't. If they were non-fans, they'd just go to their favorite game retailer and buy it. They wouldn't research all the different options if they were just a fan.

Not really. Doesn't stop people from pre-ordering other games that do the same. This method is actually really successful, otherwise they wouldn't do it in the first place.

I am really annoyed at this. They could at least have made it fair and given the rest of the world the good version of the collectors edition and NA the **** one because they have **** loads to choose from. It's disgraceful.

klona 18-12-12 22:07

Will these DLCs be available for purchase on PS Store or anything?
Or they're 100% exclusive for the retailers?

How is that fair? Fair would be everyone getting the same thing. Maybe you should learn what the word "fair" actually means before spitting it out.

It wasn't exactly "fair" that the US has never gotten a TR Collector's Edition until now. But I didn't see anyone saying how "unfair" it was.

Sir Croft 18-12-12 22:12

I'm not bothered by pre-order bonuses. I'm bothered by retailer-specific-pre-order-bonuses.
This is really ****ty.

It doesn't bother me much. If it's anything like the AC ones they will be released later for everyone to download.

Phlip 18-12-12 22:16

It's still bloody annoying and confusing. I swear there's no official list on their site that shows what pre-order bonuses you get from which shops. =/ Do they just... assume we know this stuff? :S

Well of course that would be the fairest choice but I said "they could at least make it fair," as in, if they had to make special editions so different countries and give the rest of the world on and the US 3 then they could at least make it fair and give us the better one of the two. Go troll someone else, I aint got time for your ****.

I guess they just assume people will look at all the shops they usually go to.

That's still not making it fair.

And who's trolling? Just because I disagree? Someone needs to buy you a dictionary because now you don't know the meaning of a troll.

It's a bit drama queeny isn't it? If I didn't know your game, I might have been provoked but whatever.

And no, but it makes it much fairer.

No, but you're being a drama queen by assuming I am trolling. :p

Not exactly. Either way one side would be missing out on something.

I have first-hand experience; i'm not assuming.

Yes and even if we got the better collector's edition we would still be **** out imo.

I'm still pretty mad at this! If anyone was to get a better version that someone ought to be the UK, Tomb Raider is British (or at least used to be) and I'm 89% sure that there are more British fans.

Killercowz 20-12-12 02:10

So I've never actually pre-ordered a game in the mail before, does it arrive earlier than the release date? I really don't feel like waiting days after March 5th for the stupid collectors edition.

In my country they ship games few days earlier but since you live in US you should get it on release day (not any later though).

Next Crystal Habit Podcast Coming Mid-January!

Quote:

Hello all! Just a quick update to say that the next episode of the Crystal Habit Podcast will be hitting Mid-January to*accommodate*for the holiday season. Many of our talented team members are already off catching up with friends and family, and listening to me talk to myself for an hour wouldn’t be very entertaining.*

In the meantime, feel free to suggest segment ideas below! I’m aiming to have a chat with Jason Graves in an upcoming episode - who else would you like to hear from?

I noticed the scavengers have the same jump and stealth animations as Lara.
