Check Out This Tomb Raider PS3/4 Comparison Vid

If you’re like me then you’re curious to see how different Tomb Raider looks on the PS4 than it did on the PS3. Thankfully the nice folks over at IGN put together a fancy comparison video for us to watch and drool over.

Look, I understand why some of you are pissed off about the whole Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition thing. It’s a cash grab for sure and, yes, it could open up a whole new can of worms this generation (who wants to re-buy a game they already bought less than a year ago?), but if it puts more money in the hands of Crystal Dynamics so they can make a second game that’s even bigger and better than the first then I say go for it. For me it’s perfect because I borrowed the PS3 version from a friend and wanted to go back and replay it anyways. Budget gaming FTW!

    This is a case where this might be ok to do. If I remember correctly, Tomb Raider didn’t sell like they wanted it to, and may not receive a sequel. If this new version sells enough though, we may get that sequel after all.

    “High-res textures on the body” is something I think we can all appreciate. But in all seriousness, I think this is a great idea. I hope they can do it with The Last of Us on PS4, that way I can justify adding it to my new console’s library rather than inflating the old one that I’m trying to kill off, which the 14 for 14 sale isn’t helping.

    Being perfectly honest, I’m not a graphics prick, but after playing Warframe and going back to try and finish Mass Effect 3, I did have a feeling of “Wow, this is ugly.” I feel kinda terrible about that, but it’s the truth.

    Y’know I wasn’t crazy about her model before, the eyes were off. Can’t explain it very well….but it bugged the hell outta me. Combine that with all the torment, blood n’ guts. On top of everything else… I didn’t even care when she got wet. They effectively chilled the boner I had for miss Croft.

    But the new model looks fuck tons better. Best of all, she actually looks like the excellent art on the cover and in the game. Does that sell me on the game again? Not at a full price. But perhaps a summer title. But yeah, I’d even venture to say she looks just about as good as that intro CGi. So kudos for that. And yeah, does paint a nice picture for the sequel. I just hope she isn’t gutting people with chain saws as finishers….

    @Bloodfart – Now that you mention it, I always thought Lara’s eyes were a tad weird too. I didn’t have a huge problem with it but I think they look a lot better now

    And then the PC gamers are just sitting back and laughing, since the definitive version is basically a port from the PC.
