Great news, these new consoles are really going to allow the industry to move forwards like never before.
I just hope that the actual gameplay gets a make over too.
Well this port just justified it's next gen 55 quid price tag. lol
From the PS Blog...
Sounds like it may be looking better than the PC version
It definitely looks better than the PC version maxed out, but it runs at 30fps apparently.
I would love the new Lara to be patched in the PC version but alas that's never going to happen.
My housemate said the game was awesome and half decent looking on PS3 so should lok really nice on 4, does it have more content then im presuming?
I wrote an email to Nixxes Software and Square Enix to know if the graphical enhancements can be patched in the PC version.
I doubt I'll get an answer but I'll keep you guys updated, nothing ventured nothing gained after all.
If you guys want to give it a whirl go ahead.
Wow those differences are huge, makes current TR look like a dx9 game..
Yes please do

Highlights how better this DE looks compared to the PC.
I have no doubt those enhancements could run very well on mid-range GPUs, it's sad that we won't get them for political reasons.
I would pay for that.
Not just political.
They are charging full price, so you would never get that in patch. Not even a million+ signatures asking would change their mind.
If you want the improved version buy it. If you are happy with the original, keep it.
It sucks, but I also agree this will never make it to the PC.
They have spent extra money on this stuff, no way it will be patched in for free.
Personally I would rather they charged full price for this version, but for those who owned the original it was be discounted but say 50-75% in a similar style to DeusEX HR.
Surely that could cover the costs of porting these features over, and would be more of a PR win than just not doing anything.
no they wont soon as tech get changed the console will hold back the pc yet again, like it has since always
I just meant with the pc like environment that they are developing for on the consoles, is all.
I do think though that it is kind of a kick in the teeth and i feel somewhat betrayed as gamer, that these devs and maybe others down the line, are putting more effort into new console ports than they ever have when doing a pc port.
Most of the time, the pc port is broken and sometimes doesnt even get fixed.
I can see it being more and more common, there must be a lot of older games that devs can take the work done on the PC version, add in some more features and re-release it on the PS4/Xbox as an HD remake and make more money.
Again it's to do with money, adding this stuff isn't free or even cheap so it's silly to expect any sensible dev will do this for free, if at all, and PC gamers need to start buying ALOT more games if they want this to change.
Consoles are where most develop make there money,as it far to easy pirate them on PC then on console. there for they sell more there, there for PC game shafted and few I think we lucky we get half assed port on the pc these days. How many PC games that come out on Consoles that were on PC actual had used PC tech at launch. alot them had DX11 added after they got launched pc like it was just after thought
DX11 isn't a good example though as how many PC exclusive games were built around DX11.
I think Arma 3 might of been the first one and that game is really new, everything else was either DX9 only or patched in as an afterthought.
Dont get me wrong, i would happily pay for it, i just meant it sucks that we get treated as the rich retarded cousin of gaming.
