Respawn Entertainment explains reason for PS3 controller in TitanFall video

Earlier today an image was passed around from the latest Respawn Entertainment "Interview with the developers" video. In this video, there are allegedly shots of a PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 controller and a possible PlayStation 3 console.

This image immediately sparked interest in the idea that Respawn was, in fact, developing for Sony platforms along side Microsoft platforms; platforms that their upcoming "TitanFall" game is exclusive to for the time being. Well sorry to be the barer of bad news, but Respawn has responded. (PS3, TitanFall)

They've already said it could come to PS4 in the future.

For people to think an EA game is going to stay exclusive is just plain silly.

I do happen to think it will come to the PS4 at some point. I just wont be waiting for that to happen.

multiplatform games shine way more on PC than consoles, reason why I'm getting BF4, watchdog and titanfall on PC. it's nice to see X1 fans will be able to enjoy this game, but seeing that it's EA publishing the game, limiting the available platforms would only limit the income.

I don't remember seeing an EA game exclusive to a single platform and if I saw one, it didn't last as an exclusive for long.

Fine, but is it worth $100 more for the weaker system? I surely don't think so. Now if you're playing it on PC, that's a different story.

That's the only possible thing I can see people buying or upgrading just to play this one game.


Exactly. The moment I saw EA on the mass effect series, I knew it was coming to PlayStation and it's the same thing for this. It's only a matter of time.


Here you go:

So keep dreaming that this will stay an Xbox One "exclusive" if you want, but they're probably tweaking it for the PS4 as we speak.

As of 7 minutes ago, it seems EA says Titanfall is going to be a PC, 360, Xbone exclusive. And they don't call it a "timed exclusive" either... instead they flat out say...

“The Sony platform and the Xbox platform are both very important to us. If you look at the previous generation we did tactical deals with both Sony and Microsoft throughout the cycle. Titanfall is different, it’s an EA Partners game – everything else is platform agnostic.

“Sony has been executing exceptionally well on the next-gen transition. Their hardware’s hot, they’re clear and disciplined and consistent with their policies, they are showing some amazing things with indies, so overall I couldn’t be more pleased with how they’re executing. I hope both systems are successful – EA succeeds when more platforms are doing well.”

When asked if this means Sony itself may see some PS4-exclusives from EA, Gibeau replied, “It’s a long cycle, and certainly there’s potential with Sony exclusivity deals too.” He later stressed, “I can tell you now, our internal games, the games we make ourselves, will be multiplatform.”

Titanfall is exclusive, but does this mean there could be more deals made in Microsoft’s favour down the line, or – as Gibeau suggests – is this just a rare occurance?"

I'm not a COD fan, so I'm not very interested in this game.

What I find amusing, though, is that some people keep bringing up Gears of War.
Just remember they said the same thing about Bioshock. Mass Effect, Ninja Gaiden, Dead or Alive, etc...
Withdreday  +   894d ago

Of course they did. They want people to buy the Xbox One and PC versions and not to wait for it to launch on PS4.

Remember, EA even denied ME2 was coming to PS3 even after programmers spotted PS3 data in the source code, so them making a statement like that confirms nothing.


Take a good look at Titanfall's box art. Do you see "Microsoft Studios" anywhere on there? Didn't think so.

Titanfall will be on PS3 and PS4 this time next year. Print it!

EA also said Mass Effect 1 will never come to PS3 because MS held the right.. but then The trilogy came out...

And they replied by neither confirming nor denying.
Simply said they own all consoles.
Wow, N4G really post articles based on nothing lately...
awi5951  +   894d ago
And bringing mass effect to ps3 killed the series. Because the game had to be dumbed down for the ps3 versions. It made it so your choices didnt matter and thats why masseffect 3 sucked.

HolyDuck  +   895d ago
They don't exactly have a reason to lie.

They've clearly stated they have other game consoles there, they even name a Wii U. They state the photo is over two years old and didn't have Ps4 controllers back then. I doubt Ps4 dev kits were out either, so why would they lie exactly?

The same reason AMD came out and talked about HUMA on PS4.....then suddenly retracted those statements after a brief ind depth description?

Why else? Because they're not being paid to appear favoring one console over the other. it's ad for business. They're suppose to look unbiased, and talk positively about both consoles. As such Respawn clearly was thinking about multiplatform development in 2010 but I'm pretty sure MS jumped on and paid for timed exclusivity.

Microsofts lawyers would disagree with that statement, as Respawn would clearly be in breach of contract (if in fact Titanfall IS timed exclusive, as it now seems)

Edit: because they would have already been paid a large sum of money to do so. (read: timed exclusivity and non-disclosure)

MagnusX  +   894d ago
Its quite possible but why is this even debatable? Respawn hasn't said yes or no. So we really don't know! All we know is that if you don't want it on X1,PC, or crap 360 version you aint playin for 6months to a year at least! If your interested in Titan Fall which most of you are (even though you say otherwise) you shoud grab one of the afore mentioned! DAMN!

PrimeGrime  +   895d ago
Yea no idea why everyone is making it out like this is some type of absolute confirmation.

They simply just jumped around the speculation and they didn't actual answer anything, they just said they play games at work.

They didn't say anything about if they were or were not going to release the game on PS3/PS4 at some later time. It would seem if you know you are a contracted exclusive title that has no timed exclusivity. You would just come out and say the game is exclusive to the Xbox One and it will not be on any other platforms outside of Microsoft's.
Christopher  +   894d ago
Looks like a PS3 to me. And, I'm not sure why it's blurred out with to begin with.

Will be playing it on PC, but you've gotta be really ignorant to believe this game won't hit Sony consoles.

Hey, it is available on PC and X360 so PS fans can still play this game if they really don't want to get a XB1. Me, I'll play it on XB1, of course.

To quote Majiebeast on another article.

Cboat on Neogaf said 1 year the guy has been pretty much on the ball since he started posting leaks there
No_Limit  +   895d ago
Not, CBOAT has more wrongs than rights apparently.

Failed Cboat predictions within the past year.

* DRM will get worse - It disappeared entirely
* Mirrors Edge 2 would be at MS conference and was Kinect exclusive - completely wrong. The game leaked as an Amazon listing so he can't even claim credit for that.
*Prince of Persia at MS conference - wrong
*60 minute limit to family sharing - wrong
*GPU being downclocked - so wrong, it got upgraded
* PSN online play wouldn't be behind a paywall - wrong
* Xbox Live wouldn't offer F2P games - wrong
* Indies were limited to 2 cores and only 3GB - wrong
* Sony PS4 will launch in late October - SDKs are ready - wrong
* New Indie policy is still not set in stones and will be finalized after the Xbox One launch - wrong (Indies policies was finalized at Gamescom)
* confirm that there are "whispers" of a Xbox One SKU without Kinect early next year around March/Apri - wrong (Alreay debunked by Phil Harrison and othet MS execs)

Wrong no limit but not shocking seeing as its you trying to spread misinformation again.

-DRM situation got changed for all we know it could have gotten worse if Sony also did it.
-He was the one that said Mirrors Edge 2 wasnt gonna be exclusive and the only game that was is Titanfall he was right
-POP ill give ya that
-60 minute limit could well have been true or false we will never know because its not coming.
-He said yielding issues not downclocked learn to read that must be hard for you. With the downsized launch i think he is pretty spot on which was another thing he leaked the downsize of launch countries going from 21 to 13
-The psn behind paywall he even said he wasnt sure about cause he is in the Microsoft camp
-It doesnt the F2P are behind a paywall of xbl unlike on ps4
-Did Microsoft even comment about that could be true could be false
-SDK's are pretty much done if we believe what other devs have said and its far ahead of xbone SDK
-It wasnt set in stone and it shows with the ammount of indie support and the late implementation
-Ofcourse Phil Harrison is gonna say thats false your not gonna say hey wait a few months and we will have a cheaper SKU.

Most of his rumours have been true the fact that you tried to twist his words is because you know it aswell.

I hate how these articles bringout the trolls. I have been following this company since they started up after they left activision and been hoping for them to release a game. Ps4 or not I hope the best for them. So it's stupid how people can be like "Don't look at our game this ours if you like it buy an Xbox". The point is if it does come to PS4 you guys will be mad and look stupid looking back at these posts. Lets see where the future heads for this game.

Soldierone  +   895d ago
Its absolutely pointless to expect Respawn to be honest about it right now.

Is it coming to Ps4? Yes, end of story.

When Microsoft handed over millions of dollars for a stupid timed exclusive deal they also handed a contract. In that contract states "do not mention its coming to the opposing consoles." Once that time frame is up, Titanfall will be all about PS4 and how you should still buy it. This is where all the bs "we need the cloud" crap comes from.

You honestly think the first big game from this studio was built as an exclusive from the ground up? No, EA wants money, they signed this studio to get COD style money, you don't get that by being exclusive.
giovonni  +   895d ago
I agree to a certain degree, because the game is coming to ps4. I believe Microsoft didn't invest itself enough by becoming a publisher of Titanfall make that money stretch.

Now I disagree with this part, "you don't get that by being exclusive" games like god of war, halo, uncharted, gears of war, all have gone to do system selling numbers and a few have broken sells records while being exclusive.
Soldierone  +   895d ago
The thing is, if those were all third party, you have the ability to make more money. Imagine if COD was console exclusive, it'd still sell amazingly well, but a whole 1/3rd to 2/3rds of its record breaking sales are now gone.

Third parties are about maximizing profit. you don't maximize it by choosing to only sell to a third of your install base. You don't create a COD style fanbase by not offering it to everyone. The ONLY time that is an exception is when a first party is taking a hit and helping publish it, not the case here as EA is the publisher.

This game was being built for PlayStation, there is no denying it.
