The other systems get Temple of Osiris so everyone gets a piece of Lara Croft. And besides, its probably a timed exclusive so there shouldn't be any issue to this because its pretty much the current trend these days.

It's projected release is the holiday season of next year, so would it matter? *shrug* Surprised that it was announced this early.

Well...I was excited for it. I'll have faith that it's a timed exclusive like ekko said. Would be heartless to fans and players if they didn't release the sequel on PlayStation.

As for Temple of Osiris, meh. Looks like Diablo II and Tomb Raider got together.

I was upset at first because I was planning to buy a PS4 this holiday season. Oh well. I can wait another year. Besides, I'm waiting for most of the PS4 games to drop in price.

I not entirely convinced that it is indeed a hard exclusive (never to be released on anything XB) for two reason:

1:Square Enix complained that the first game didn't sell enough units when it was on multiple platforms, so unless MS has paid for all the predicted sales that would have come from a PlayStation and PC release, I can't see how this game can sell even close to the "disappointing" numbers of the first.

2: Much of the press release data seems to use the term "Exclusively holiday 2015." The number of reps who seem to keep quoting "2015" seems odd. Why not just say "only on Xbox"?

If I'm incorrect, and the title is indeed an hard exclusive for MS, well I guess I won't be playing it all. Which sucks given that I loved the last game. I can only hope it eventually finds it way to PC or PlayStation, however if not... well I guess I'll rack this up as a loss and move on to other things.

Pretty that most likely it will end up on PC anyways. So being a PC and a PS4 owner, its just another game that is on both Xbox and PC. I will end up playing like the rest of the Xbox exclusives, since they end up on PC majority of the time.

This is a slap in the face to the fans across the board. I understand console exclusives exist and have no problem with them BUT I do take issue with creating a multi platform game and then screwing half the fan base with the sequel. This is bad business and like DLC could hurt the industry in the future.

I felt the same way, it was really a slap in the face.. I was really looking forward to the sequel, and then they give us an exclusive... I don't own a Xbox One, and I don't really intend to buy Xbox since most of the games I play are usually coming out in the PS.... so it sucks that this is a Xbox exclusive...

I bought the first game day 1 and liked it and I was going to buy this but I guess SE doesnt want my money. Even if this is going to be just timed exclusive I'm going to wait until the price drops to 20€ or so just out of spite.

As a Xbox one owner, I'm glad MS is pushing to gather exclusives ( whether it's timed or not). They had a rough start, and have been working very hard to recover from it. On a side note the IGN thread on the same topic hit 14k comments and boy was it fun to read.

Even though I have both systems, I would still rather play it on the PS4. We still have a long ways to go yet, until its release date. So if it does turn out to be a timed exclusive, I'll wait for it to come out on PS4. Otherwise, I'll get for the Xbone.

Unless you are owned by Microsoft, Sony, or Nintendo, exclusivity does not exist. I doubt that you will see Mario on Xbox or PlayStation or Nathan Drake on Nintendo or Xbox. Let's not forget about PC releases either. Ryse was supposed to be an exclusive on Xbox One, but it is coming to PC.
