Given the debacle that was E3 2013, they really wanted people buying their consoles. I'm not surprised one bit that they pulled that one year exclusive nonsense, but it didn't make me rush out to buy their spyware. No, I gave my money to their competitor instead and then waited a year (full disclosure: I bought it for the 360 first) and then got the complete product--or as I like to call it, the game.

Poor move, Microsoft. Poor move.

Oh I agree and did they do anything for Shadow?

Imo that whole rivalry is just onesided amongst fans. PS doesn't have this imaginary Vendetta against TR. I believe Microsoft had a lot of money to give. I'm pretty sure PS wouldn't pass up Lara Croft as a PS exclusive. That's just silly. Maybe we could've even had the crossover that fans wanted. MS doesn't know how to market adventure games because they have tons of shooter based exclusives. They just pay for TR to fill up their adventure game spot. It makes no sense why this is still happening.

I didn't say Sony had a vendetta against TR, I'm just saying that with them having UC they didn't need TR to fill their action adventure slot at that time. Sony have always been supportive of TR and marketed it well.

No they didnít. Which is so confusing. Why would you pay and not do anything? This is the second time they try some type of exclusivity and for what?

I remember the PS YouTube channel used to upload the Woman masters Wild series mere hours after they were released and several days before the Xbox channel. Itís crazy.

MS should step away from TR as fast as they can. If only TR was a PS exclusive I bet that the trilogy would be more famous.
Hate it or not, but when the Xbox deal was on here, there was a lot of people that didn't care about the PS and PC users.

The problem with Rise or TR2013 was not the amount of combat, it was the lack of everything else. Non existant platforming, white paint everywere, no puzzles, no exploration besides collecting garbage...

Shadow should have more combat, but keeping everything else as it is. Maybe even adding a more complex level design and key fetching, and it would be perfect.

They didn't choose either. Microsoft chose them.

Really makes me wish the relationship between Sony and Tomb Raider was rekindled. Sony is much better at marketing and their playerbase is more loyal and "better defined" (I hope that makes sense).

I feel like Microsoft promoting the game barely boosted sales on the Xbox whereas if Sony showed love for the game, it would boost the confidence of PS players by a much larger margin.

This might not be true at all of course, but I feel like Sony's love is what TR needs.
