I was simply stating the obvious, and it's that more recent articles have suggested otherwise, and that it will definitely be timed. Microsoft would be shouting it from rooftops if it weren't so. (1 minute ago)
@digi_matrix: I didn't say the article said Microsoft their own Uncharted. I've heard fans say Tomb Raider should be exclusive due to Sony already owning Uncharted, which makes no sense anyway. (3 minutes ago)
hell, even douchy douche face (spencer) said the deal obviously had a duration. (5 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: i would honestly be surprised if a tweet from january held more weight then more recent articles stating the game was timed (8 minutes ago)
@KORNdog: yeah...i wonder that too. If this is going to happen, it'll be at E3. (11 minutes ago)
@Nanosecond: But if you read the article that you linked, you know it's not about MS wanting its own Uncharted since the deal goes back to 2008. Guardian of Light was a timed exclusive, too. (27 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: yowza...talk about old news...haha. january? why has that popped up again? (29 minutes ago)
