Playstation users Shafted with Tomb Raider!

16 replies 762 views Edited Mar 10, 2013

 Okay is it me or what, but all I see is Xbox is getting all the attention with this title and Playstation users are getting shaft? I mean I thought Tomb Raider became popular on the Playstation. So why is there this division with content given?

 

Thanks,

Does it matter? PlayStation does the same thing. PS3 has gotten timed-exclusive content for games too.

It all depends on who (Sony/Microsoft/Nintendo) is willing to pay more for the content/and/or who has the better relationship with the developers/publishers.

While there have been some timed exclusives, or even just some exclusive content available only to PS3 users, the thing is most gamers DO NOT like this.  It's entirely worth mentioning that Microsoft is by far the most common offender in this, and it's really stupid.  

 

It's very easy to say that it's not a big deal, and hey, if video games suddenly stopped existing, it wouldn't even be a big deal.  The Earth would still spin around.

 

It's nothing more than a subversive attempt at influencing a person to want to buy both consoles.  Blah, blah, blah, just buy both consoles...what if there is no REASON to want to play two consoles?  Seriously now, the game is not made or published by either console team, why would CD irritate PS3 only customers?

 

You walk into a gamestop or buy it online, and you see the ads..."Exclusive content available for xbox 360 owners!"  Isn't that a little agitating?

 

I don't get told I can't buy a certain belt at Macy's because I'm wearing Guess jeans and the hot new design is only available to people wearing CK.

I'm sure people who only own an XBOX360 felt agitated when they saw "Assassin's Creed III" had "Exclusive" content on the PS3. (It was only the Benedict Arnold missions.) And for "Tomb Raider" XBOX360 is only getting Map packs as timed exclusive content. Nothing I personally care about.

 

It happens. 

 

 

Every console has something to offer, IMO. I own a PS3, 360, and Wii.

Though, my main console is my PS3 (the one I buy all multi-platform games for.)

 

Only reason to own all three -- Exclusives.

I haven't bought many 360 games because most of their exclusives are online multiplayer oriented games, and I don't feel like paying to play online. Besides, PS3 owns the best exclusive games, IMO.

 

PS4 will no doubt be my main console in the next-generation. I'd still love to get a Wii U eventually and Microsoft's NextBox.

I was under the impression that we were getting some of the same things. It said that it had rewards for Playstation Home like Batman Arkham Asylum and Red Dead Redemption, but that turned out to be a lie...I'm just hopping for a Playstation exclusive dlc

There are no Home rewards for Tomb Raider. I got my platinum this week and nothing when loading Home even though Home is mentioned on the back of the game box. It's truly a shame that we get nothing and that other console company has content for it's xbox live avatars.

Yea I saw that...and I'm highly upset that they just gave Xbox everything and left us with nothing...I feel if they can make an avatar for them then they can make clothes for us in Home.

Since most Xbox exclusives have come over to the PS3 I am fine with letting them have timed exclusives. Those poor guys need something to feel good about besides some HALO.
