Game Informer and IGN both reported that you can buy the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition at gamestop already and possibly other retailers, and got confirmation from Square Enix that there isn't a "real" street date on it when it's shipped to stores.

Sorry if it's been posted already, and I didn't add ymmv since it's basically a given online that at least Gamestop definitely has it.

I have to agree lol. Some friends of mine were hyped for some reason so I thought maybe someone wanted to grab it before Tuesday.

Lol I brought it earlier, I posted in the Collector Edition thread about it. Was hard to find a copy as well, most stores only got 1-3 and were all pre-ordered

 

I dislike that its the same setup as the KH 1.5 Artbook/Disc case, but I'll just keep it in the slipcover

'Early'?! The game is a year old. You can't street date a game just because of upgraded graphics.

I got mine on xbox 360 for 20 bucks digital. Its a good game but i heard the MP sucks, so the extra MP add ons you get free are pretty useless. Dont think updated graphics are worth 40 bucks more.

I wasn't hyped for his until I heard that the PS4 version will be running at 60fps. 30fps and 60fps is a huge difference, so it will play way better than the PS3 version along with updated graphics. I do believe though that they should be charging $40 for this and not $60 though because it is a year old. I'm sure it will drop to $40 real fast anyways.

Should be $29.99 for HD upgrade.  Eventually i'll get this game around $10 or less by the time i pick up PS4 in 2015 ;)

I'm game sharing it, so I'm getting the better version for $20. Sucks, I was hoping at least something would run at 60fps on Xbox one

Unless it's a poorly optimized port, I thought the pc version is generally the definitive version, especially if you have a current high-end system.  Even ps4 can't match that...

Every online comparison I've seen so far calls the PS4 version the best looking version of the game.

 

Not sure why this topic exists since this isn't a deal, but hopefully we'll start seeing markdowns within a few weeks.

Yeah we already got them shipped to us. Are we supposed to be selling them? No. They are marked with a date, maybe square enix wouldn't mind but gamestop sure as hell would. Those employees who are selling them must be in hot water right now. I had some guy call asking if we were selling it already, so i don't doubt IGN or GI would say something like that. Kinda annoying, whatevs.

 

Side note: I totally agree with it not being worth it. $60 is way too much. I understand that they put in some extra work to make it look more appealing but cmon, $60? Square Enix is known for their price drops anyway, so not too worried.


These were made by me:  :xb1:  :ps4:   :vita:
Thank you CheapyD for implementing them.

GameStop is sending text and emails out saying it is available now. Even the website is saying orders will ship in 24 hours.

Square Enix knows what they are doing when they put the MSRP at $59.99. Tons of people will buy it just because of the lack of next gen titles available right now until March.

i first played it on 360 and beat it at launch. i then got it for pc later on seeing it was on sale for six bucks on amazon just to have it. going to be honest this game is good but it's not worth to pay 60 bucks for a upgraded graphics. Only way i see point of buying it for that is if you never played it and don't have 360/ps3.

Yeah, Dante84, check game informers's site, they have a direct quote from square Enix saying it's cool.

And also the comment section, as well as IGN says Gamestop is selling it.
