I suppose PS3 have home? I don't use it like but the majority of developers use it, like Capcom let you have the outfits from Resi 5, same with Rockstar so I suppose they might use that?

Or create on of those dynamics themes that have been popping up?:scratch:

Dynamic themes, OR avatars :) Like the Uncharted or Assassins Creed ones, etc. what you can see on your gamer tag too. :)

Keir please answer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Why is it always 360?
Why is it worth?
Tomb Raider has always PS and PC, and now the xbox 360 why the "favorite"?

I've always played on the Playstation Tomb Raider, and I do not buy 360,
Still wait for Tomb Raider 9 and again when there are benefits such as X360, goodbye forever Tomb Raider ..
I think this is a huge slap in the face to fans:(:(:(
But I think with you only the money counts!!!!! it's sad...:(:(

im not to hot on knowing what sort of things the PS3 has but i know this, all they can do in PC terms is give wall papers which they have already done, xbox allows for this sort of thing to customize your avatar and background this is not a flap in a face and there is no favourite console.

If they can make money from avatar and themes then let them every other game developer does it and they dont get under fire because of it. i think you should give Eidos and CD a break they are not slapping fans in the face they are just helping out the ones they can.

But I also think that 360 is favorite
-TRU demo (Xbox 360 and PC)
-BTA
-LS
- 4 weeks exlusive GOL
- GOL avatar, theme ...and then transpires what comes
And at E3 that the Xbox 360 could also be seen on the GOL could play a demo!

PS3 themes can do, or PSHome-made objects into a piece of clothing, and yet there is not no

fair point but you have to take into account of restrictions and marketing opportunites, if sony didn't allow the demo or were charging too much on the ps3 then they would not have released one for it

yes 360 got the 4 weeks exclusivity and the downloadable content, probably due to marketing and money aswell, TR cannot simply survive on fans buying games. With this summer arcade on xbox 360 it will promote lara and hopefully give her more fame across other people

thus giving CD more money to make better TR games in future. its not the end of the world. its just a matter of patience i can understand you would be angry, im sure i would be in your position aswell, but i see no reason why this stuff won't come to PS3 in time

Yay! I've been wanting this for ages. :D I am exactly the person they're talking about in this Gamasutra news story (http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/29547/Study_Female_Spend_On_Virtual_Items_Currency_Double_That_Of_Men.php) claiming women spend twice as much as men on virtual items and currency. It's so totally lame and yet so much fun. :p

I quite agree it is a slap in the face both for PS users and PC users like myself and yes the only thing the developers think about is the money they hope to make. Well they won't be getting any of my money for GOL or TR9 for that matter.

Lol!

Well, the avatar is a representation of yourself, and it´s very prominently present on XBOX Live, so I think it´s perfectly fine to buy clothes for it and play dress-up. :lol::D

I bought a Guitar Hero shirt, high tops and a guitar a while ago, lol. :D

I was wondering, does the Lara outfit come with dual pistols?

They kind of need money to maKe the games. Creating TR needs more than farts and sunshine.

Because you aren't getting digital accesories, earlier dates, and extra levels, you aren't going to play any of it. That makes perfect sense :rolleyes:

The outfits are AMAZING!!

It's not just the TRU Lara main outfit, but also the Jungle heavy, Legend biker jacket, Legend main and Doppie outfit! :eek::eek::cool::D

I got the Legend one and the cool glasses, couldn't resist. :D
But I feel like I should get a pet for my avatar as well. That cute little dino would do just fine. :D:D

Thanks CD! :thumb:

Doesn't bother me any - I personally find these suitable for a much younger audience. Cheers to those who like them though :)

I couldn't find the green top shown in the screenshots Keir posted, though. Is that one not available or did I just miss it somehow?

Either the colour of the TRU outfit can be changed, or it was a quick Photoshop job afterwards. :o:o:hmm:

Love2Raid, just realized we have the same hair. :lol: I decided to go with the Jungle Heavy, my favorite Underworld outfit. Notice that I also opted for the beefy thighs, just like in the new game...not to mention real life. ;)

how are you uploading your avatar on to the forums? are you some how getting the picture off of the xbox live website?

Yes. If you type "avatar.xboxlive.com/avatar/gamertag/avatar-body.png" into your browser, substituting your actual gamertag for the word "gamertag", you'll get a PNG image of your avatar. You can then save it and upload it here as-is or use Photoshop or another image editor to edit it, add a background, etc. I used a section from a TRU Mexico screenshot for my background.

Note that if your gamertag has a space in it, you should substitute %20 for the space. So, for example, avatar.xboxlive.com/avatar/Lara%20Croft/avatar-body.png.

Looking great! And yeah, we do! :lol:

Hmm, I guess it´s one of the few Avatar hairstyles that actually look good. :p

I heard the Jungle Heavy got replaced by the classic (TRU style)! :eek:
