Rise of the Tomb Raider Xbox become One-exclusive!

Coming only on Microsoft's console next year!

Press conference from Microsoft at Gamescom in Cologne, it was announced that the sequel to Tomb Raider in 2013, Rise of the Tomb Raider, only lands on Xbox One when it launches at the end of next year, I have heard about. When the game was announced at E3 this year revealed no Crystal Dynamics which platforms the game is going on, but now it is clear.

In any case, almost. they want to be absolutely sure that Microsoft retains exclusivity forever, and it may well be that the ball lands on PS4 and PC when the game has been available on the Xbox One a little while. Crystal Dynamics promises as well as major research opportunities, a story that challenges Lara Croft's capabilities to the limit, epic action scenes - and the best arc found in a game.

But there have also been told that in a press release reveals Crystal Dynamics that they have made a deal with Microsoft that makes Rise of the Tomb Raider will not be released to either PS4 or PC.

Xbox and Microsoft are doing what they can to draw money to themselves, think that they do not care so much about the fans as they do for money...

M$ against the players.
Its sad that instead of having a good service and great games they rather spend money to make them exclusive. Same crap with the X360 it got nearly no exclusive games especially at the end of its life cycle and they rather brought the Sony exclusives to it. I also read that sony exclusives sold better on the xbox than on the ps... LA Noir was such a case I think.

Sunset Overdrive which is somewhat a successor to Ratchet & Clank is also a xbox exclusive.

Well I might leave this gen out completely. Am happy with my old consoles and the pc.

M$'s Phil Spencer has clarified, it's just a timed exclusive: "Yes, the deal has a duration." It's still stupid, but less stupid. Only a little less.

They should be more specific with what they say, I bet they make these "mistakes" just to get free publicity. The worst part is that it probably works without any bad consequence. :/

Tomb Raider 2013 edition won me over with TressFX. Now I can't stand normal hair anymore and I am a fan of the Tomb Raider series. Therefore when I learned about this my reaction was something along the lines of:
