If the next game fails, Tomb Raider is dead. And it is likely to fail because fans don't like to be pressured. I would be surprised if 1/3 of the people who've played the previous games will play the next. And I don't think that the game will reach many new gamers; if did not care about it in the past, why should they now? And I have the feeling that the Xbox isn't selling that well. I've not seen a single person eyeing the console in stores.
I agree with you on that! I'm not sure how many players would buy an Xbox to play the upcoming game, not to mention if they don't have other Xbox games that they're interested in...
I am a little afraid that they might have made a deal with MS from which they cannot step back... No matter how big the uproar in the community.
Yeah, I've thought about that too. And Gallagher's note seemed to imply, that the exclusiveness will be permanent, not timed/temporary (as in "RoTR" being published later to other platforms).
Every now and then I check the official blog to see if people at Crystal Dynamics would have replied to comments or to the uproar they've caused. But so far I haven't seen anything... Have there been any futher comments on the matter by Crystal Dynamics? (or other company)
