    UK chart: Tomb Raider Definitive Edition top. PS4 69% Xbox 31% sales share.

    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/20...ve-edition-top
    square enix's tomb raider: Definitive edition has taken top place in the latest uk all-format chart.



    69 per cent of tomb raider copies were bought for playstation 4, uk numbers company chart-track revealed, leaving just 31 per cent on xbox one.
    The next-gen re-release is the first major launch of the year, and the first time in weeks that fifa 14 has slipped into second place.
    That said, fifa was still less than 500 copies behind.
    The rest of the top 10 remained largely unchanged - so too with the whole top 40. Call of duty: Ghosts was third, battlefield 4 fourth and lego marvel fifth.
    Assassin's creed 4: Black flag sixth, minecraft: Xbox 360 edition seventh, gta5 eighth, need for speed: Rivals ninth, while killzone: Shadow fall was 10th.

    That's far better than I expected. Not sure if good or bad news.
    Meh, I say it's good news. I liked Tomb Raider reboot.

    It would be nice if they gave some actual numbers. I would be surprised if TR ends up doing well. I just don't see many people buying it again.

    Everyone on my PSN friend list that got a PS4 bought this game. So I think there's a decent amount of PS4 owners that bought this game. I think most probably didn't play the original that were on the PS3.

    If you've played the original, you shouldn't have bothered, and if you didn't play the original....WTF? Its way cheaper to pick up than this version.

    Frankly, glad I didn't play the original. Don't care if its cheaper. This one is better and it is pretty awesome.

    Cos visuals and/or first time experience. I highly highly recommend gamers pick this version up (the PS4 one) if you haven't played or finished the game.

    Of course if you don't care about visuals, get the PS3 version. But if you can afford it and haven't done so already (played it) then it's awesome.

    Well worth it.

    Gonna pick it up digitally on sale down the road.

    #IndieStation4 and proud of it.

    This.^ I only rented the PS3 one and played about an hour of it. This version is way better and it was definitley worth every penny.

    I didn't play the original and want to play a better version on my PS4, I'm happy to spend the extra money since they put in extra effort

    Not surprising, the version that runs better sold better. SONY is in a fantastic position this gen.

    Or when Halo 2 anniversary comes out? lol Mynd was pretty Happy about Halo anniversary I remember. Sure Halo anniversary was 40 bucks but you could get the original for way cheaper. So whats so different here? Oh thats right, the PS4 version sold way more copies than the xbone version so now its not a viable option. lol

    Average game is still an average game..classics are classics, I own MGS HD collection, RE4, and DMC HD collection.
    But then they didnt come out last year, and they were actually above average games.
    I picked up TR for about $20NZ ($15 US), and would have felt ripped off if I had paid more.
    IMO this game doe snot fall into the "classic" category, and given it came out a year ago...meeeehhhhh

    So now Tomb Raider is just an average game ? lol Totally subjective even if that was actually an honest opinion. Damn classic game imo. Worth every penny.

    Probably above average, the gunplay/arrow play was ok, but I felt it was too forced in direction (even though you could go back and "explore" other areas, it led you by the nose to much, didn't like it anywhere near as much as the original.
    I've played it right though, which is I guess a mark of a good game, but no, I wouldn't cross the street to pay full price for it on any generation. And those $#@!ing scripted events (ala, washing down the river/crossing the bridge etc etc) were just crap. There wasnt anywhere enough puzzles in this game (I enjoyed the bell ones).

    But then, I think Bioshock infinite is $#@! too.

    It is a great game. That is my opinion, obviously, and judging by the fact that it shot to top of the charts in the UK (and other areas as well probably) then yeah, I'd say I am not alone in that. I love the combat, the scavenging, the story.....it is just fun as hell.

    And yeah....the upgraded graphics add a lot to the enjoyment. I look at the screen and see the incredibly detailed landscapes and crazy good-looking action sequences and then I look back at the last gen version. Sorry....but playing a game with awesome graphics makes a difference. I feel lucky that I am playing it for the first time on the PS4. Would I have felt the same about this game if I had to settle for 360 or PS3 version? Can't say.

    But the subtitle is damn right. DEFINITIVE Edition. That is why it is number one.

    I'll wait for a price drop on it. Was waiting to get this version over the previous gen release with the hopes of a decent price. $39.99 is what I would have paid. I'll wait for that.

    Yep theres a reason its number one. And I agree that the nicely upgraded graphics really ratches up the immersion factor on the PS4 version. I love the frequent gunfights and getting to upgrade your weapons. Also the seat of your pants moments and running across burning rooftops with amazing fire and particle effects and explosions was just wow. Definitley an amazing game worth every cent. Well deserved spot at the top of the charts. The PS4 version is the truly definitive version. I'm almost near the end and already want to play through it again.
