Fair enough, but Gameseek have always been reliable for me.

99.9% of the time if you order before 6, you get free next day delivery

definitive what ???
PC is definitive version end of story

Good stuff, played it to completion on 360,will definitely grab it again when it's cheaper

I paid about a fiver for it on PC months ago, and I seriously doubt the new consoles can do any better.

The DLC is multiplayer junk and not really worth paying for considering the multi is pretty cack.

But hey.

Yes dear.

Bad experience buying from gameseek, preordered a ps4 from them in june, had it guaranteed for release day and came 2 weeks after. Would pay 10p extra easily to purchase off a reliable company. Though Gameseek have a good feedback, after my dealing with them, would never use again.

Apparently this version has a lot better graphics overall compared to the original maxed out on PC. Even if it is only 30fps.

Don't be a blind fan boy this is still a rip off but it will clearly look better than the previous version.

Just borrow it. It still looks, and more importantly plays, really good on current gen. She's just got lovlier hair in the next gen versions and PC.

Stsonic there is NO WAY next gen consoles are going to look better. Next gen consoles GPU is equivalent to MID RANGE on PC. Tomb Raider runs 60fps 1080P with all DX11 bells and whistles turned on, assuming have a mid range dx11 card. Plus costs £10 max at the mo.

People shouldn't underestimate the differences between playing certain games at 60fps as opposed to 30fps. It makes a huge difference. Good examples on PC which blow the console versions apart are Castlevania and DMC.

if the devs put effort into porting.

Not worth it, unless never played Tomb raider.

It is good that dirty console peasants will finally be able to play the game with a reasonable standard of visual fidelity. Okay, it might not be at 120fps 1440p, or even 30fps 1080p, it isn't in 3D, and it's 6x the price of the PC version, but still, not bad.

yup some ports are shocking eg Dark Souls. Thank f*** for modders!!

I wouldn't order from Simply Games again after their rampant profiteering with the next gen console launches and their CEO gloating over it. I don't buy stuff from Game for the same reason.

Gameseek are a half decent company but not the cheapest out there.

Do some research on the release of this new version. A lot of the graphics have been redone. I never said consoles were more powerful than PC I just said this one particular game will be better than the original. Just because you have a £2000 hardware it's not going to magically make the older software better.

For the record I own a fairly high end PC, Killzone SF on the PS4 beats anything I have seen graphically on PC.

I have read all about the supposed 'superior' version it is usual developer smoke & mirrors. The PS4 and Xbox one have no tricks up their sleeve which have not already been exploited. Also, fact is even if they do manage a better version (which I don't believe) then it will get released on PC and be cheaper.

Also, I couldn't give a rats ass about graphics anyway. You have just made a classic example, saying Killzone is better than anything you have seen on a PC. Well for a start, Killzone is utter garbage which gets worse with each version (it has zero identity). Plus your PC cannot be that powerful as Witcher 2, Crysis 3 and Battlefield 4 absolutely blow away Killzone when running on highest settings.

Next gen is a complete waste of money at the moment - Ps3 with Ps + and enough free games to last months can be had for around £150. Plus GTA V, The last of us and numerous other titles which can be had for peanuts.

So my overall point is not about graphics, it is that next gen is a complete waste of money at the moment and not worth investing in for at least 12 months till there are some decent games, and a reasonably priced second hand market. I find paying even £35 for a game utterly obscene

"Killzone SF on the PS4 beats anything I have seen GRAPHICALLY on PC."

Did I mention if Killzone was a good or bad game? We were discussing the capabilities of the latest games compared to last year, and you have just gone off on a rant on an unrelated subject. I have played all the games you mention on max settings. you clearly have not played Killzone on PS4. Chapter four "vekta" is graphically superior to all of them.

I am getting Tired of fan boys in general jumping the gun to protect their precious platform. Give it a year or so, and the PC games will start to veer away from consoles in terms of graphics, just like they did rapidly last gen.

i am making a point that graphics mean NOTHING so given Killzone is the only major title available and it is utter garbage I am making a completely valid point.

Also you are having a laugh if you think that Crysis 3 does not knock Killzone / battlefield on highest settings do not knock Killzone out the park graphically. yeah Killzone is good looking, but it is beyond generic, it looks nothing like the last version, and the last version looks nothing like the prior. It is a garbage franchise. Haloe, which is graphically inferior absolutely blows it away.

So you waffling on about me talking about gameplay in the context of this thread, are talking **** boy. It has everything to do with this thread, as my recommendation to anyone would be to buy tomb raider in its current state and play it, a few extra smoke effects and better hair are not going to improve the game are they. £36 for something which can be had for £10 is not a good deal, end of.

For your information I have played Killzone, it is a complete and utter let down. One of the most boring, generic shooters i have ever played. A few of my mates have run out the door and bought PS4, and you know what ALL of them regret buying it, as after a month all they have to play is FIFA and a buggy as hell battlefield.

On the other hand I have a 360 / PS3 and Alienware M18X loaded with Steam / Uplay and Origin loaded to the hilt with A1 games.

You replied to me on a comment about graphics. You disagreed with my comment and now are trying to put one over on me talking about a totally different subject matter. I am not "talking **** boy" I am trying to have a discussion with you about my opinions of two different games GRAPHICALLY!!, which is impossible as you keep side tracking onto anything and everything.

Good day.

lol

This is why pc gamers will always be seen as fat virgin kids in society, just look at the amount of butthurt whiny desperate sounding comments, on a deal that IS FOR PS4\X1, all because the game has "Definitive Edition" in the title.
Im also a pc gamer but most times it seems what they say about the "fat virgin kids with no life" is very true.

Does this come with the artbook packaging?

I know always so desperate to jump in a ps4 or Xbox thread and say PCs better! Although in most respects I agree, but I prefer a console experience to a pc one.

Stop feeding the PC trolls, this thread has nothing to do with the PC version it's for the x1 & PS4, anyone with even the slightest interest in Tomb Raider will know about the PC,360 and PS3 prices that have been low for months now. For anyone who is still to play the game then it's not a bad deal really, especially if you don't own any of the older platforms.

This is probably going to be 20 quid a few weeks after release.

Believe all Definitive Edition versions do yes. Double check with the seller though.

Can people just comment on the deals, fed up of scroll through pages of platform wars ... Good deal.. Might pre-order
