It burns! Oh how it burns us!
We’re not all above making simple mistakes, but some are worse than others. There’s the “oops I knocked over the vase” kind of mistake, and there’s the “oops I listed Rise of The Tomb Raider for the PlayStation 4” kind of mistake. Though one of those is worse than the other, without a doubt.
Yes, the chain of video game stores collectively known as GAME goofed hard today when they listed the timed Xbox One exclusive, Rise of The Tomb as available for pre-order on the PlayStation 4 for £49.99. That’s gotta sting, eh PS4? Just an extra pinch of salt in the wound.
Square Enix have already come under fire for the timed exclusivity move which is (in my eyes) a little bit slimy. But lets be fair, business is business so I can understand their decision. I don’t respect it, but I understand it.
But there’s something a lot of people seem to have forgotten or just not noticed. Rise of The Tomb hasn’t actually been confirmed as coming to the PlayStation 4 yet. Maybe this timed exclusivity thing is a tad more permanent than we thought? It’s unlikely, but you know. Food for thought.
