PC only??? Oh no you didn't.

It should be PS4/XBONE and PC.

No to PS3/X360!!!!!!!

I thought the TR game would be on consoles since those would be the people who buy more games than PC users in general? Is the tomb raider game not coming to consoles? thats an odd choice I cant imagine it will make much money on PC. Hmmm I dont think I would buy it since she doesnt use guns, I mean its 2014 and shes running around with a bow, she might as well start using a musket or something while shes at it or go full caveman without the pickaxe and just carry around a wooden club. The theme seems a bit weird to me to buy, but maybe thats just me because I'm a PC gamer.

Just because in the cinematic trailer she uses a bow for stealth, doesn't mean there will be no guns, you had guns in the previous game, didn't you?


Im a PC Man at Heart, should the Game be Delayed to wait upon the Consoles aswell.

PS4 and Xbox One are next-gen also, put them in there... PC has no gen when you think about it.

Wouldn't it be better to let people freely choose which platform they would prefer TR10 on?

Like, a full list of platforms, and making the poll multiple choice.

I can edit it for you if you'd like :)

It would be better for the sales but it need to be a next gen title. As long as the quality of the graphics are not affected I don't care about a last gen release.

Driber

Hmm, just thinking, maybe change the poll to ask which platform people would BUY the game for?

That may give a better indication of the actual demand.

What do you think, daventry?

Tallantis

I think it's fine cause it's a bit unsure that the last gen will get hands on.

If it came out on 360, that would be my choice. However, the new game is likely to be released on the next gen platforms exclusively.
Xbox One doesn't appeal to me, so I'm thinking of buying PS4. I still have lots of time to make up my mind.

Underworld came out on both last gen and next gen systems. The last gen version was a failure in comparison to 360 and PS3 version.
It's almost as if they were making two separate games. I want to play a well-polished game so I may not have a choice but to buy a next gen system.

Can't vote on the poll, but it will be PS4.
Assuming the game takes full advantage of new gen tech I couldn't see 360/PS3 versions being able to keep up, but if the game is able to translate well enough into that gen, I might buy them down the the line too.

Um...wouldn't it make more sense to compare Tomb Raider and the Definitive Edition opposed to Underworld's PS2/Xbox/360/PS3 versions? In which case, TR looked great on both the Xbox 360/PS3 and the Xbox One and PS4.

Sure, because based on the Turning Point trailer we saw how Lara never killed a man or used guns in the whole game, right?

You see, Underworld was originally developed on next-gen platforms and a completely different studio developed the last gen version. I somehow think it might be a completely different story when you upgrade the game for the next gen system, which is why your comparison to definitive edition may be irrelevant.
Let me put it this way, if Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris isn't released on 360 and PS3, we won't be playing ROTTR on last gen platforms.

Xbox One or GTFO. /troll

Buy the game on your favourite platform that ROTTR will be available on. Shouldn't be any judgement there. :)

If I do have a next gen console by the time it comes out it'll be PS4 (which is very likely)

But if not and it actually comes out for last gen consoles then I'll be buying it for the 360.

Speaking of which, would be great if GoL came to PS4/XboxOne too. Would be a great way to get back in practice.

And no I haven't made the jump to next gen yet, and I still don't know when I will.

PS3/PS4 - depending if I end up getting a PS4.
But I still have shell shock of how terribad TR8 was on the PS3 so I may take the PC route once again.

On the official website there's no 360 or ps3 logo so I assume it's not coming out on last gen systems. Too bad :/

I don't even understand this. a. how do you know she isn't carrying a gun? and b. you're telling me you've never bought a game that doesn't have guns?

I played Tomb Raider on hard, using only the bow - it was the most fun I've had in a long time.



The theme seems a bit weird to me to buy, but maybe thats just me because I'm a PC gamer.


Was that a "PC master race" point, or "I don't play anything other than CoD / BF / RTS"? PC games have many more "weird" themes than console, simply due to higher saturation and diversity of games.

Last time I checked, no platforms were announced. I might be mistaken, of course.
Frankly, creating a cross-platform game would be a mistake, in my opinion. At this point, they shouldn't let the old consoles hold them back, remember, it's likely the game will launch in the same year as the new Uncharted, people will be more than likely to make graphical comparisons.
PC/PS4/XOne is the way to go.

By the way, the engine Crystal are using is the same one as before, only modified, correct?

PC always, but I plan to get a PS4 next year so maybe I'll buy it for both? (and a PS3 :lol: I've been saying that for years, tho :p).

I wonder if Nixxes will handle the PC port again, tho. They done excellent on TR aside from the messy optimization for Nvidia (which didn't affect me :whistle: AMD prices > ). Hopefully TressFX is a bit more optimized for PC next time around too. I don't want to bury my system on release date on Rise Of The Tomb Raider. :lol:


but maybe thats just me because I'm a PC gamer.

You're also an Nvidia gamer, right? :p I seen you on Steam forums trolling about AMD on the Watch_Dogs forums. :gamer:

Wait? Why did you downgrade? :o Did your card die? The same happened to me once. I couldn't afford a better one so I settled with an 8400gs (seriously). :lol:

I've always been with Nvidia till recently (I got my new PC build in early March to play TR to mark it's anniversary, decided to go with AMD R9 280x Toxic 3Gb - feels good maxing everything out :D).

Thank you! :) Yes, I made my signature ages ago, though. I don't think I even remember how I did it. My photoshop skills are very novice and I tend to forget how to use it after I haven't used it in a while. :p

Cross-platform doesn't have to hold anything back. That's just a wild assumption some people make about TR10, based on the opinion of a few game devs who are completely unrelated to the team at Crystal.

No, that was the deal last time with TR9. TR10 will no longer use the Crystal engine.

But think about it: x360/ps3 don't have much RAM, for example. That means the number of objects in a scene needs to be smaller, the texture resolution can't be too high and so on. That means concessions have to be made and the power of new machines isn't being utilised.

Ah, VERY interesting, thanks. :wave:
Crystal used the term "Foundation engine":

No, you're still thinking about it the wrong way, heh. I already explained it in the other thread, but here's another example: the PS3 version of Legend also had less objects rendered in some scenes than the 360 version because of the differences in hardware.

So you see, you still get the machines who are capable of doing more, utilizing more. There need not be any "compromise" by merely supporting older hardware :)

If you design primarily for said older hardware, then that's of course a different beast, yes. But that's not what is happening here ;)

Multiple locations around the world will be filled with exploration spaces that are some of the most beautifully hostile places on earth and over three times larger than we could achieve before.

and you get rewarded for it. just like in blacklist, if you found a more stealthier way, you got additional points that gave you more money.
but in TR i would prefer that you get to unlock a costume or other features to unlock.

^ Why would they do that? People can easily cancel their pre-orders if it turns out to be false...

That's the point. If Amazon get 50,000 pre-orders and it does come out - bazinga! If it doesn't come out they haven't lost anything.

Yep. It just seems like them getting hopeful. Especially since Amazon don't charge for pre-orders till they've actually been shipped out to you. They don't really lose.

Definitely PS4. I have a PS3 still but obviously the choice would be PS4 considering how much better it is. I'm shocked at how gorgeous the games are so early during the console's life. Do y'all remember when PS3 first came out and we were blown away by games like Heavenly Sword/Uncharted, and as time went on the graphics of games only got better and better. If they look this good now, imagine what they'll look like a few years into the console's life-span! :O

This generation of consoles is very different than any previous gen. These consoles are much more like PCs so the hardware is already very familiar to developers so there is no funky architecture to learn like there was in the 7th gen especially with the PS3's cell processor.

It's also worth pointing out that at this very moment, we have games which look like this:
http://assets.vg247.com/current//2013/02/Crysis-3-1.jpg
The lighting will improve, so will the particle effects or the sheer number of objects on the screen. There will be a jump in quality, no question, but not as huge as the one we experienced during the PSX-PS2 transition (or PS2-PS3/X360).
Not to mention creating rich visuals rivaling CGI is prohibitively expensive, how many AAA developers went bankrupt last generation? Way too many.

Although I'd like to have the new TR on PS3 because I can't afford a new console, it's important for CD not to develop this new game on the PS3/X360. We've seen numerous times studios failing in offering great titles on the 2 generations of consoles. So, it's important that CD develop the "Rise of Tomb Raider" exclusively on PS4/XB1. For the PC, I think that 80% of the copies would be hacked, so it's not that good to develop on PC :)

^ Please don't bash PC like that, consoles can be hacked too... I've seen numerous times where people could've pirated a game, but instead they bought the game... Or they pirated the game to try it, then bought an original copy to support the developers :) It is true that there are hackers a many, but to say they shouldn't develop on PC is harsh. And CD could easily manage to satisfy the last-gen too, we're just have to see what the game looks like and what are the improvements since the DE. If RotTR will indeed not look as good and not have as many features on last-gen as it would on current-gen, CD can make a statement like "Hey, we want to satisfy our last-gen fanbase too, but we'll have to warn you that it will not be the same game graphically etc." so people are clear on that so they could decide whether they want to buy it on 360/PS3 or invest in XB1/PS4. But please don't try to preach that the franchise should be platform-exclusive, especially console-exclusive. Your argument just doesn't make sense.

There should be some kind of rental service on PC where someone pays a small fee to try a game. The whole pirating and then buying is lame and I view those people the same as those who just straight up pirate. You couldn't do that kind of thing in a retail store.

The "cross gen release hurts the game" thing is a myth. Nothing more than some opinions of a few of the well known dev studios at this point. I can't believe so many people just keep on parroting this mantra without actually being devs themselves...

I said it before and I will say it again - just because Ubisoft can't pull it off successfully (or think they can't) doesn't mean CD can't pull it off successfully :cool:

As for the anti-PC argument... I have the same response to that as to those who want to exclude last gen owners - it's selfish :whistle:

Except me and my brother, then. My brother even bought me a collection of AC games for my birthday last year. ;)


-----------------


Now, let us not forget the DRM thing in ACII. I bought the game and I'm still pissed years later because people wouldn't shut up about games being pirated. As a buyer, I had to deal with that crap, not you, not pirates. :mad:

Besides, what is wrong with playing the game and then if you like it, you buy it? Especially if you can do it that way. How many times have we heard gamers complaining about spending their money on a game they didn't like that much?

Where's the 'I don't know yet' option :p? My laptop would probably explode trying to run RoTTR. The poor thing struggles with TR. My son has an Xbox360, so if the game is available on that, then it'll be that version I buy, but as we don't know if the game is coming last gen, then it's hard to say. However, should my finances improve significantly in the next year, I'd really like to jump in with a current gen console and experience RoTTR in all it's glory! Not sure which console I'd choose though.

Then you should vote for 360. Note that the poll asks which platform WOULD you buy the game for (as in: what is your preference), not what platform WILL you buy the game for in the end. One of the purposes of the poll is to show demand :)

For me, it's easily Lara's "other humble abode" ~ the PlayStation. :D

To clarify, I'm not a Sony fanboy so let's not be childish and go there.

Personally, I just prefer Sony's consoles and was never a two-console gamer when the original Xbox was released.

In other words, both half-seriously and humorously, I'm being "faithful" to Lara by staying on PS.
Also, I don't want to eat her bullets ! :lol:

So, to reiterate, I will be purchasing it for the PS4.

PS ~ Relative side note ~ Heck, I've re-purchased Tomb Raider for that console as well.

:eek::eek::eek: I think who are really a gamer won`t use pc with pirated games for two main reasons: 1. buying original ones we support PC platform as ''console'' (wich is growing day by day), ...2. In PC version we have tha same game released in PC 30€ less than released in PS4 for example. To give an example: GTA is coming to PS4/XBone and PC in few monts ... I have it at 33€ in Pre-order for PC right now while for PS4 it's 64€ :D
And if you wait one month or two after releasing date, you get it even cheaper ...as Watch dogs for example that I can buy it now for 25€ only few weeks after.:thumb:
