Titanfall Will Be Playable at Tokyo Game Show, Skipping New York Comic Con

Sony is going to bring some rather big guns to the Tokyo Game Show in order to promote the PS4, but what about the Xbox One side of things? Titanfall will be playable there probably to bank on the Japanese's love for giant robots, but unfortunately for New Yorkers, it'll skip Comic Con. (PC, TitanFall, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

This could work well for MS... Afterall Japanese's people may not be shooter fans but they sure love their robots :p and titans fit the bill.

Well, I will be at TGS so I guess I will be able to see Titanfall?

I thought. MS was not launching in Japan? Seems strange they would show TF at TGS unless they plan on launching before TF comes out in 2014. Which is possible I guess.

I still don't see how people expect EA to keep a game exclusive to any platform. I will wait for Titanfall on PS4. Its coming. Its EA now. If you seriously believe EA won't aim the game at the PS4 then you have something wrong with your head. Why is this my logic? Just read below. :)

Destiny = MMOFPS. Published by Activision on all platforms in 2014.

Titanfall = MMOFPS. Published by EA on ......... in 2014. Just wait for it.

EA wants this on as many platforms as possible to compete with Activision/Bungie's Destiny. Its inevitable. EA turned the dial up on the FPS sales war with Activision you can't expect them to dial it back now.

Neither Destiny or Titanfall is MMO, Destiny has RPG elements and Titanfall is just multiplayer matches like team deathmatch.

Respawn.devs said MS was developing closely with them, could turn out to be another gears sort of deal like they have with Epic

The difference is that MS published GoW, so it made more sense why it was exclusive to xbox. MS isn't involved with the development of Titanfall - Respawn are the devs and EA are the publisher, this is why many insist it will not stay exclusive. However, nothing is set in stone, and MS has a shit ton of money. Any one who sees Titanfall as definitely coming to PS4, is just wishful thinking.

It could be an entirely separate issue, like limitations or whatnot preventing them from releasing the game on PS4 - like Azure giving the devs the options/features they want/need to develop the game they way they want it. If something like that is the case, it won't matter if EA is involved or not.

Why Titanfall. I mean, I know mechs are the thing over there, but the FPS thing really won't work that well.

It'll be all eyes on Sony, just like every TGS

Deep Down is going to be playable at TGS, that's pretty big news on its own. TLG would make the event mind blowing.

Too bad I'm not going.

Doesn't matter, the 'line ride' is going to the most popular at the show.

It will be interesting to see how Japanese gamers take to TitanFalls because they aren't fans of FPS. However they are big fans of mech games.

Hate to burst the bubble,Japan has been moving away from consoles for the last 5 years neither ms or Sonys consoles sell well there.its all about handhelds in Japan now.
Belking  +   810d ago
You are actually correct. This gens console sales prove it. They don't buy xbox anyway and ps3 didn't sell close to what it should have. Japan loves mobile gaming. Its a fact.

Plagasx  +   810d ago
