Tomb Raider Sets Sales Record

Crystal Dynamics studio head Darrell Gallagher today told a GDC panel that their Tomb Raider reboot had the "biggest opening" of any videogame so far this year, and that in selling 3.4 million units in a week, has set a franchise record. This is reported on GameSpot, where they also note Square Enix has stated the game has not met its sales targets, which raises the question of how they arrived at such lofty Crofty expectations.

Considering it had practically no tomb raiding and was instead a near direct rip off of Uncharted (which yes was a evolution of Tomb Raider)
3.4m is bloody good.

If they had just taken the core of the Uncharted "spectacle" and added a few puzzles or a tomb or two too raid it might have been a good game.

As it stands it's a VERY well presented 3rd person shooter with a couple of platformy bits which relies on using QTEs to turn cut-scenes into levels for the sake of padding.
