If this was game was an exclusive for PS4.... "Sorry, Xbox fans! " There wouldn't even be as big as a problem. Double standards in the gaming community. I feel sorry for the Playstation 4 owners but get over it. Enjoy Uncharted 4.

I own a Wii U and 3DS. I also own a PS4!

You forgot to mention how Square Enix expects it to sell 10 million copies, then will be disappointed with everyone else when it doesn't reach that number

that's what i didn't understand. the last one all they did was complain how "tomb raider sells over 4 million, SE not pleased", I'm like!!?!?!?
and now they limit it to 1 console, and the console that's 3rd (last) in install base? okay....

Microsoft spent several million dollars "buying" the exclusive rights to this game, hoping that it will attract more gamers to their console thus generating more revenue for them in the future. SE did the math, and obviously felt that whatever Microsoft was paying them would be equal to or more than what they would have earned had they sold the game on PS4. I'm sure SE is perfectly fine with this decision.

This is kinda funny when you consider at one point most console games were exclusive, now fanboys get up in arms over one.

"But exclusives are killing the industry!"
People seriously think that. I don't even.

No, no. You have it all wrong. Exclusives only kill the industry when it's not on your system. If it is, then it magically becomes better.

You're right it wouldn't be that big of a problem because Xbox One has only sold around 5 million units while Playstation 4 is at 10 million sold.

Which is why MS paid for the exclusivity rights, like all other console makers do from time to time.

People talk about it being bad financial management that Tomb Raider only just scraped profitably, but it's guaranteed that Wonderful 101, Super Mario 3D World and Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze have all cost Nintendo a lot more money to development/fund than they made back.

Ignoring your ignorance on Nintendo's reasonable budgets, Nintendo has a bigger justification to lose money on software because they want Wii U to succeed. So even if they didn't make profit, they could be happy if it helps system sales. This is entirely limiting Tomb Raider sales so Microsoft better have paid ALL the money if SE wants this to not be a terrible idea.

though again, I don't mind this actually because I want the other consoles to not be boring and meaningless.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

Is this why everyone hates Nintendo? They want Mario and Zelda on their systems

I think it's cool when consoles get exclusives.

Yeah, guitars are cool.

I absolutely want consoles to be boring and meaningless. As a consumer, your cheering for a system that requires at least $1200 in hardware purchases per generation doesn't make any sense. If you were a console manufacturer, maybe.

how interesting falls asleep

I'm fine with consoles having exclusives (I don't think any Nintendo fan can say they're not with a straight face). But that should be the realm of 1st party development or established franchises on that platform (like Final Fantasy on Playstation, for example). Essentially bankrolling what is normally a multii-plat franchise to become exclusive in order to artifically boost your hardware sales is really, really lame.

Exclusives build consoles dang it, if you don't have that mind set that Tomb Raider should be exclusive to Xbox One, then I don't know what to say.

The Megaman Battle Network series is underrated... I think, don't quote me on this.

The very same PS4 fanboys who are complaining about the new Tomb Raider being an Xbox exclusive and saying exclusive games are bad for the industry are rejoicing about WiLD being a PS4 exclusive. The comments sections at various gaming sites are hilarious with all the hypocrisy and double standards.

Exactly--that's what it boils down to. I think this story in particular has taken me to the edge of my tolerance for these entitled attitudes.

Exclusives rock. They are what sell consoles and what makes consoles stand apart from one another. For god's sake we are posting on a Nintendo forum: We know better than anybody how important exclusives are. I don't dislike Microsoft at all for going after exclusivity with Tomb Raider, in fact, I applaud them. They are a company. They want to make money, and sometimes you need to invest money to do so. They did exactly that, and I say "bravo."
