Gamescom 2014 hasn't even officially opened its doors to the public, but the biggest European gaming event of the year has already yielded up some mad surprises: Rise of the Tomb Raider is going to be an Xbox exclusive. What that means is still unclear, of course. We know that Rise will be "Xbox only" in 2015, but we don't know if that means it's Xbox One only or if the Xbox 360 will get a Lara Croft-ian 10th birthday present.

What we do know: This whole situation feels awfully familiar. Way back in 1997, after the original Tomb Raider was a smash on PlayStation and Sega's Saturn, Tomb Raider 2 became a PlayStation console exclusive.

Is history repeating itself? Is it a coincidence? WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN!? To find out, Joystiq Streams is broadcasting Tomb Raider 2, the original Lara Croft console exclusive, at 4PM EST on Joystiq.com/Twitch.
