Rise Of The Tomb Raider Making PS4 Owners A Tad Jealous

Oh come on, we're allowed to admit it, right?

Had Uncharted 4: A Thief's End come out this holiday season as originally scheduled, I'm sure PlayStation fans would've reserved the right to say Xbox One owners were jealous. Don't deny it.

And being such a big fan of the last Tomb Raider, I will say I'm a little jealous. The sequel would probably top my most-wanted Christmas list if it was coming to PS4, and with such a great critical reception, I want it even more. Now, we all know that about this time next year, RotTR will arrive on Sony's console. And we all know it'll be the best version, as it'll be updated in some way and it'll likely include all the previously released downloadable content.

I'm extremely patient and I've got plenty to play, so I can wait. Halo 5: Guardians isn't sweetening the deal for me, and I won't ever buy a console for only one game. Doesn't appear like there's anything on Xbox One's exclusive lineup for 2016 that really jumps out at me, either. On top of which, I've long since realized I don't have the time to be an effective multi-platform gamer these days, so I'm sticking with just one. Therefore, I will abstain from the $350+ purchase.

...doesn't mean I'm not allowed to be a teensy-weensy bit jealous right now.

I'm not jealous. The game will eventually come to PS4, likely better.
Timed exclusives aren't hard to resist and having an XO for one isn't nearly worth it.

But I do like the high scores I'm seeing. It tells me it'll be worth the wait. And PS4 gamers are definitely not deprived of great games to play right now.

Edit: I also can't support multi platform gaming anymore. It's not about hate. it's about time and money. When you get older and take on added responsilities you simply have to make concessions for extraneous things to keep life running smoothly.

I agree, timed exclusives don't tempt me, and similarly, they don't make me anymore or less glad about purchasing a particular console. If the game is a real gem, I might get a twinge of impatience, but then I just reach for a game in my collection that is as good, if not better. My gaming habits have changed significantly since last gen. I pretty much now get all my games on sale, though occasionally I'll justify a d1p as a reward to a special or exceptional studio, in my own humble way.

World. Not only that but she could rip Drake apart in a fight.
So I watched the DF's performance video of the game and the graphics look great. Gameplay looks solid too. Stronger stealth elements. I do think her presence will make things harder for Uncharted to pull down the consistently high reviews this next go around.

Shams. Yea, that's a good way to go. Gamefly isn't a bad solution either. Fallout 4 should be in my mailbox today. If you figure 25 bucks a month for two games out at a time equates to $300 a year and if you're playing through more than 6 games a year then it's a great way to save money.

Nope. Since it's not out on PS4, I'll just be spending by money on other games. I'm also not interested in buying it a year from now, so I will just continue to spend my money elsewhere.

I think those who are jealous are just into that type of game. Those like myself that see the appeal any many other games that are releasing right around this time are probably not. I'm pretty sure Fallout 4 will keep anyone satisfied.

Its really hard to justify being jealous of a game I'll get to play later that'll be the better production. Not even a bit envious about this one.

With Fallout 4/deus ex/uncharted 4/No man's sky/Horizon/the last guardian/dishonored 2/dlc witcher 3/dlc fallout 4 i have lots of great games to play,so that 1 year i'm not jealous for.

I read that there are now big tombs[and not just some little caves like in the first one],so this one will be more TOMB raider that's great!.

As a fan of the reboot, I couldn't get over the animations. Yes after playing uncharted I got used to the way Nathan Drake moved, so the animations felt unnatural and stiff. Would I want to get it? Sure, it looks fantastic! It just isn't in the budget currently, even having the new consoles doesn't justify buying it. Lots of play time on ps4 and wiiu.

Quite the contrary with all seriousness. CD is amazing and has guaranteed yet another stellar game for the PS4 come 2016. If I have UC4, SFV, HZD, NMS, TLG, Tomorrow Children, Witness, Rime and Ratchet and Clank I am good for exclusives in 2016. Not to mention the amazing 3rd party games that will run and look better on the PS4. I have never been more happy with a Sony console. Oh by the way Fallout 4 is amazing! I played until 3am last night and had trouble putting it down. I ran into ZERO bugs at least so far. The game looks like it's been in development for a long time. With that said, it still looks good, it's just not ACU/UC4/ACS/HZD/Witcher 3 graphical greatness. The game play is what is king here. This game will keep many going for months.

yah man,and i forgot Witness and Rime,great games!.

About Fallout 4 bugs on PS4,it appears it's not so much of a problem on the ps4,but on the x1.
Many ps4 gamers showed that it plays just fine,some little framerate drops that's it,TILL NOW!![lol],i did see several recordings of people playing F4 on the ps4,no problems as you also stated,so very good news for us ps4 gamers.

i got my fallout 4 game today whoohoho!

I'm not feeling jealous in the slightest. We're still getting it, and a better version at that!

Plus, I have too many games I still need to catch up on. *cough* MGS5, AC Unity, Witcher 3 *cough*

Did I have a ton of fun with the original Tomb Raider? Sure did?

Will I mind waiting until it comes out on the PS4? Sure won't.

I don't even have the first game after the ps1 days I can't get interested on Lara, that said the reviews are raking this good, sporting currently a 87 on Metacritic.

Still I'm too busy with Fallout 4 to have time to get jealous.

Sorry to say, I will be purchasing an Xbox One based on the release of Rise of the Tomb Raider. I am not a patient person. Really liked the last installment. And figured I couldn't hold out for an entire generation of Xbox. I'll go back and check out Sunset Overdrive (the only past title I'm interested in). And I will look forward to titles like Crackdown 3 and ... hmm, well, there's Crackdown. Maybe GoW, Fable, Sea of Thieves??? I'm fully expecting PS4 to remain my "cross-platform" platform of choice.

Btw, Tomb Raider's console exclusivity lasts for a year. PC is expected to get it in early 2016.

I'm definitely jealous. I played the first one on my 360. Then when I got my PS4 I bought the definitive edition. I so can't wait.
