Even though it was posted back in January, a Facebook comment from Xbox Australia is getting people talking about the exclusive nature of Rise of the Tomb Raider.
This has been a pretty funny odyssey ever since Microsoft announced that Rise of the Tomb Raider would be exclusive to the Xbox One. It’s really made some people look like hypocrites. While it appears to be fine for Sony to pursue Capcom and pay for the development of Street Fighter V in order for it to be exclusive to the PlayStation 4, when Microsoft does the same with Tomb Raider on the Xbox One people hatch elaborate conspiracy theories to try to spread FUD about the exclusivity period.
That’s why whenever something is said about the the deal surrounding Tomb Raider, it becomes a big deal online…even if the comment is months old and people didn’t see it when it was first posted.
Here’s the Facebook comment from January that started all of this today:
At this point it appears as if the Rise of the Tomb Raider deal is similar to that of Dead Rising 3. Where the game is console-exclusive to the Xbox One, but it’s free to appear on the PC at a later date. And that’s honestly the most sane explanation to the whole thing.
