Lara Croft & The Guardian Of Light may be going XBOX 360 exclusive... But it's only for a few weeks. Four to be precise. In order to be part of the Summer Of Arcade promotion Microsoft runs every year, Crystal Dynamics has confirmed that the upcoming downloadable Tomb Raider adventure, Lara Croft & The Guardian Of Light, will be an XBOX 360 exclusive for a whopping month. Wowzers!
The agreement with Microsoft is, in order to participate in their hugely successful Summer of Arcade promotion, there is a window of exclusivity. That window of exclusivity is a set four weeks, said Stewart.
As with all arcade titles, irrespective of platform, you have to go through your submissions before they agree and approve a date.
Unlike a disc based title where we can pick our window, you have to go by what the first parties approve and give you a date, to make sure youre not coming out on the same day as five other titles. They like to manage the release window accordingly.
The XBOX 360 version will hit on August 18th, while PlayStation 3 owners will have to wait until some time in September.
