Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida has described the Microsoft Gamescom Tomb Raider announcement as “a cryptic message by Phil Spencer.”
“It’s very interesting the way Phil Spencer said, what we are saying is, in holiday 2015 Tomb Raider is exclusive to Xbox. So it’s open to interpretation,” he added.
Yoshida was, like the rest of us, surprised by the announcement, and cheekily hinted that Microsoft would have had to pay a lot of money for the deal.
“If you’re a marketing person at Square Enix and projecting your sales for the game, if it doesn’t come out on PS4, it must be lots of units that have to be covered by some means,” he said.
