Niklas Brkic from Germany started the petition. He argues: "Tomb Raider was born on Playstation and Pc when Xbox hasn't even existed.Don't throw away a 18 year old tradition only because of money from Microsoft."
Update: Timed.exclusive.

This won't do anything. Petitions never do.

Besides, even though they're not saying it, I suspect this is a timed exclusive. Watch it get released in mid-to-late 2016 on PS4/PC.

Petitions are a joke at best and a nuisance at worst

Unfortunately there is no real(useful) platform for public opinion. Take wethepeople for example-totally useless. A more impact approach would be to email/tweet/fb the studio instead of putting yourselves on some arbitrary list

You don't need a petition to make people boycott XBox One. Just tell them to read up on how bad and borderline illegal XBox One is. When Killer Instinct got announced as an XBox One exclusive at EVO, it got booed by the whole crowd.

I think the devs did it so they didn't have to lose initial PS3/4 version sales to Uncharted 4 meaning that once folk are bored of UC4, RotTR comes out and behold SALES FIGURES.

Yeah true but this also caused them to lose loads of sales too.
They pissed off most of their fans on PS/PC and I hear most of them saying they won't buy this game due to how they f*cked with them. A lot of pictures going around where they spit and burn their copy of Tomb Raider lol.

Exclusives is the main cause of fanboy wars I don't like it.

Also exclusives have to stay between the same series for one console not for a game that has already been released in more than one consoles. Exactly like it happened with Bayonetta...

Exactly.
Once you go Multiplatform you have to stay as Multiplatform.
Turning a multiplatform into a exclusive later is ridiculous
