Somebody asked me the other day if I planned on getting an Xbox One for Rise of the Tomb Raider . My response:
"LOL No. Just…no."
He asked because I'm a big fan of the reboot (and I eventually want the Definitive Edition on PS4). However, here's the thing: Rise of the Tomb Raider isn't exclusive. It's a timed exclusive . It means it's coming to PlayStation 4 at some point. I may have to wait a year or longer but who cares? What, I don't have anything else to play?
And besides, we all know that when the game does arrive on PS4, it will be the ultimate/definitive/whatever edition, loaded with all the previously released downloadable content and running at full 1080p (because thus far, Xbox One hasn't often managed to hit that max resolution). Who knows what else it might include but I can pretty much guarantee it'll be the superior version. I'm not so grossly impatient that I can't wait.
Now, if a miracle occurred and Lost Odyssey 2 was announced exclusively for Xbox One, and we were assured it would retain the previous combat system and style, I'd get an Xbox One. Oh yes, I would. That'd be an exclusive game and one I know I'd have to play. Whenever Xbox One has such a thing, just let me know. And no, Halo 5: Guardians doesn't count; I'm done with that series (played every single one and really, it was tired three installments ago).
