Titanfall pre-orders will be $60 USD, even on PC

EA, never shy of pinching a few pennies, are wanting a lot of money up front for Respawn's Titanfall. (PC, PS4, TitanFall, Xbox 360)

No....
I'm sorry this game isn't worth $60 just for multiplayer. Sorry, not when people can get a similar experience with COD: Ghost and get a single player experience. This is coming from someone who was genuinely interested in this game, and doens't like COD.

$60 on PC? When they're gonna drown the game in DLC? They've already confirmed that the game will have cosmetic DLC and weapon/map DLC.

No thanks. The game does look cool but I'll just pick it up on Steam sale. Oh wait! It's on Origin, meaning it'll be years before it goes on sale...

@ Pixelsword Try the beginning of the end for X1. Hear me out first: Titanfall (and I am a SONY "fanboy") looked to be an interesting game. I was very intrigued and thought, X1, one day... because I wanted games like Titanfall. Granted, I will get it on my PC, but the one thing I liked about MS's E3 were the games.

So... this really sticks in my craw.
spaceg0st  +   479d ago
Battlefield would be worth $60 alone for just multiplayer. The amount of hours and play time would be well worth it... So it IS conceivable. Gamers are so fking whiny these days... If you don't like it, stfu and don't buy it
JokesOnYou  +   479d ago
Well MAG was a full $60, for a multiplayer only game, right? Should we blame sony for contributing to this standard?...or do I sense a double standard?
http://community.us.playsta...

I think it depends on the title, if there is enough compelling content there then it could be worth every penny. Why is it not a problem to pay $60 for SP game that lasts 10-12hrs but not a game like Titanfall which looks like it will deliver countless hrs of playtime such as games like COD or Battlefield? I never even thought it wasnt going yo be $60 on X1. As for $60 on pc thats unfortunate but I was always getting it on the X1 anyway.

lolwat, that doesn't mean anything. MAG was a pretty bad game, having 256 didn't make it much better or worth the price. I'm not justifying Titanfall's price here but what you said was just dumb.
JokesOnYou  +   479d ago
Muerte2494 are you seriously suggesting that player count makes a better or more compelling game thus justifying why one multiplayer only game is worth $60 and the other is not? So what if I make a terrible, broken game with stick figure graphics and throw in 300 players multiplayer only does that make it worth $60(not saying MAG is terrible but you see why your logic is flawed)....I mean whats next should we distinguish between one has mechs and the other doesn't= NO, they both fit the multiplayer only category, so the question is, is the content offering overall worth it, frankly Titanfall looks like a superb multiplayer gamer, poised to even outdo the ccurrent industry giants, its won more game critics awards at E3 than any other game in history, yet you're actually saying MAG is worth it but Titanfall is not? Wow, you really exposed yourself with your comments on this post. Nothing against MAG but its not really considered among the best shooters...if you love it thats fine though, I just think your reasoning is laughable at best or were you just kidding? lol please tell me you were just messing with me.

Actually when MAG came out people on here raged and MS fans came out the wood work. So its only fair the same thing happens now. MAG sounded promising and was decent. Problem: not COD(amongst other things.). I Titanfall is as good as it looks then buy it. In general though I do believe MP only doesn't justify $60.
badz149  +   479d ago
why are gamers freaking out about this now?
It's already been awhile since pc games started to cost $60. Not that I am here to justify the price but it's already too late to bitch now as big publishers already price their pc games $60. Just look at Steam

They're charging too much for a multiplayer only game. It should be $40 tops just like the Socom: Confrontation was.

Online games require more post release maintenance, balancing, and overall work especially nowadays. Im not sure why ppl think if its online only it should cost any less because even if it is online only it still require not only the initial investment but as a said before more post release investment.
Muerte2494  +   479d ago
This game is....
actually a perfect match for Xbox One. An overpriced game for an overpriced console. As if the console needed anymore help not selling. This is the "One" game people wanted but it severely overpriced. I guess the "power of the cloud" comes at a premium.

IMHO from the direct feed pics of titanfall it looks like a 360 game not next gen at all, if i do get it it will be on pc and i hope to god it doesnt look like those screens they showed yesterday cos otherwise COD beats it on this gen consoles in graphics.
fermcr  +   479d ago
60€ for the PC version (witch you can't resell, unlike the console version). No thank you very much. I'll wait until the price goes way down. No rush. EA really like to f*ck people in the b*tt.

Technically you paid 60 dollars before for just multiplayer...battlefield 3...call of duty...we all know the only time their played is during multiplayer titanfall is just smart and its dropping that bullshit single player experience that no one wants...now sure great games like halo need a single player and bioshock....but guess what...THEY DONT SUCK...cod and battlefield single player is shitty.
Imalwaysright  +   479d ago
Even if the single player component of those games were crap they still cost money to produce which made that €60 price tag justifiable. This is nothing but greed from EA. They killed online passes most likely thinking that MS and Sony would force DRM down our throats and now that they can't bring online passes back they'll do anything to nickle and dime us in every possible way. I can tell you right now that most PC gamers won't support EA greed.

Your argument is strawman. The fact that you even mentioned those games having single player, already removes the rug from underneath it.

If "no one wants" single player? Why charge 60 bucks? What makes this game worth *more* than other games?

You played a recent build?
Kanzes  +   479d ago
They should've look Valve's Team Fortress 2 as example.. It's multiplayer only, it's an awesome game, and most of all, it's free! you pay only if you want customizations
MidnytRain  +   479d ago
Team Fortress 2 was released with a price in 2007, then went free-to-play in 2011. It had almost four years to rake in money from it's initial buying cost. Combined with the fact it was very popular over that time, and still continues to be, it's in a much more comfortable position that Titanfall is; a new IP which has the very possibility of failing.

guitarded77  +   479d ago
Wow, yeah. Totally agree. This is just a lame attempt to cash in on the hype behind the first game from the guys since leaving IW. Pathetic. First they sell out to make it console exclusive (for whatever time period), now they're jacking up the price by $10 for the average PC game. I'm taking a pass. I wasn't as impressed as most when they showed the E3 demo. I think there are many better looking MP games coming out, like Destiny and The Division.

MidnytRain  +   479d ago
That's the one thing. There have been games, like MAG, that do just fine at justifying a $60 price tag as a multiplayer only game. In addition, from a business perspective, it makes much more sense to charge full price for the mode the company knows people will spend the most time playing anyway. For instance, CoD is primarily played for its multiplayer component by it's millions of players. And those millions of players seem perfectly happy with paying $60 without ever touching the single-player!

From the looks of titanfall i doubt there will be enough interest to warrant making a sequel the games graphics are this gen not next.
Muerte2494  +   479d ago
This game was suppose to be...
multiplatform. This game is using Source engine and one of the reason's for that is because it ran so great on PS3. So Belking, this is more than likely a timed exclusive. Good thing Microsoft bought all the ps4 copies of this game in advance, because that's the only way this game was going to sell. Even then EA is going to find a way to get out of this deal with Microsoft. I wonder how much of that 1.bn went to securing TitanFall?

HugoDrax  +   479d ago
It could end up multi-platform, well that's what PS4 only adopters are hoping for. After Titanfall won 10+ E3 awards, and Microsoft having deep pockets, I'm sure they may try everything in their power to secure this title as an exclusive (XB1/X360/PC). Only time will tell, but $60 for PC is a bit steep...
Belking  +   479d ago
I know the game is a timed exclusive but ps4 won't get it till 2015 or later. The game doesn't even release until this time next year so how is it gonna be on PS4 on 2014 too. They don't even have enough people to even do the 360 version.
Muffins1223  +   479d ago
Fail...game is only on pc and 360 to begin with lol
Funantic1  +   479d ago
I doubt it'll come to PS4. Maybe PS4 will get a Titanfall 2. MS will just extend their exclusivity for Titanfall and money talks. Plus this games relies on the Azure cloud heavily according to Respawn themselves. Respawn actually went to Sony and Microsoft and told them about the desire for dedicated servers. Microsoft was the only one that responded with an answer. This company relies on dedicated servers that they can't afford themselves. MS is charging them a price to rent servers at a unbeatable rate that Sony can't match. Plus Respawn is a team of only 60 people. They don't have the manpower to make a PS4 version not relying on the Azure's computation and still work on other projects at the same time. Their team is too small to even make a story mode for Titanfall which is ok for me because multiplayer has the replay value. The version that the 360 will have will be watered down and a port by a whole other company. PS4 users wouldn't want to play a lesser version than X1's version. I read many facts about Respawn and the cloud straight from their website. People said Dead Rising and Saints Row would come to PS3 and they were right but only part 2 and after of both of those only.

Back when I was a noob, I made the mistake of pricing MAG at $60, thinking it had a single-player or offline mode. Boy I was wrong. I couldn't even play the game for several months because my internet was out due to moving.

EA isn't going to clarify to the general public that it's MP only, but MP enabled. Just like EA's Simcity5. It doesn't say "always online" until you read the small print on the back of the box, which is enclosed in a glass locker. So people who don't research would have to buy the game unknowingly that it's MP only or DRM.

This game will have story campaign elements in the multiplayer. So it's a little bit of both but mostly multiplayer. But I'm going to support Respawn because they're a small company just starting off. They're a small but experienced team. Respawn has artists that made God of War Ascension, a few of the Call of Duty games, Medal of Honor,God of War2, and God Of War 3. They have sound designers from Resistance 3 and Rage. Also Game designers from StarCraft:Ghost, Borderlands, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, Doom 4, Kill Switch, and God Of War. I could name about 20-30 more games they have worked on that I know most people used to enjoy. I'll pay $60 because I'll play this all year long anyway.

wait a minute, Skyrim is a RPG. Historically, you would have a single player campaign that tells you a story about what it is you are playing, and then they would offer you a Multiplayer in addition to it. This game is the first time I've heard of a major game not having a story. But I guess if people like you feel that it isn't necessary then they know what they are doing. I'm just worried that one day, your decisions to buy games like these, will mean that I will have to pay extra to play full games.

As long as the content gives you 50+ hours of enjoyment then it's worth the money. MP or SP who cares. Idiot fanboys just can't think like normal human beings.

I think if TitanFall was released on both Xbox One and PS4 the price would be about $40-$45.I wonder how much MicroSoft payed ReSpawn Ent. for this title.Also if this game become Multi-platform in the future how would MS respond?Because If $300-$400 million of that billion dollars went towards TitanFall,only for the title too come on the PS4 anyway I would be extremely pissed.

Too many people jumping the gun here remember guys they have been developing this game for YEARS i remember hearing about respawn in mid 2010 and is coming out in mid 2014. No way they they are going to develop just 10 maps and a couple of weapons in 4 years. I expect alot of depth and content. I put 504 hours (21 days) into cod 4 multiplayer in my profile give me that level of addiction of multiplayer that has yet to be replicated and i will gladly dish out 60$

what a bunch of morons how many people buy cod and bf and don't touch the sp,im happy they are concentrating on mp the game will be worth the 60 bucks.games like mag a generic shooter and starhawk an unbalanced mess with plenty of base raping and a sp so generic you'll fall a sleep in the first 30 min,both sony exclusive both a waste of time.

i bought both games this gen and they are my biggest regrets this gen specially starhawk,i guess there's only one thing sony fanboys are good at and that is hype exclusives that turn out to be diarrhea to the mouth.

If this game comes out six months after xbone version for $60 that bs. I wont really care because I think this game looks too much like cod anyway and haver zero plans of buying it even at $20
