No Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition for PCs

A new Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition FAQ is online to answer questions about the upcoming enhanced edition of the Tomb Raider reboot which will include DLC, preorder content, and spiffier graphics. One of the things they confirm is that the already spiffier looking PC edition of the game will not be getting an update, as they say: "Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition was designed and rebuilt from the ground up for next-generation consoles. At this time a PC update is not planned." They also note this will not come to last generation consoles, and that there will be no upgrade path for next-gen consoles, where the game will be a full US$59.99. Thanks MCV.

Square Enix doing as Square Enix does. No surprises there

it's also pretty much the only triple 'A' game coming out this month (January) so they picked a good time to (re)release this.

we don't need this on PC anyways, Xbone can have it... still better than paying $49 for Angry Birds.

edit: one thing they mention in the FAQ is Kinect. but what about the PS4 camera? why aren't developers using this peripheral at all?

also I noticed this contradicting...

Q: Have any bugs from TR 2013 been addressed in TRHD?
A: Yes. All of the title updates rolled into the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 editions of Tomb Raider have been included in Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.

{ "...rebuild Tomb Raider from the ground up for next-gen consoles."
"...They pulled it apart and rebuilt it with new technology, finally allowing us to reach the vision for Tomb Raider that we always wanted."
"No, Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition was built from the ground up for next-generation console technology that isnít available in previous hardware." }

uhhm, so if it's re-built from the ground up then how can the old patches even make a difference at all?! and with a totally new redesigned version of the game you're gonna have new bugs anyway?
