No shet Call of duty on every fking system.

mewhy321021d ago

well of course it won't. Call of Duty is, like you said, on all systems. Titan Fall will be on PC so it's not really exclusive, I mean not like Uncharted 3 or anything. So I'll play that bone shooter on my PC, like all the other bone software that isn't multi-console. The rest i'll play on my PS4 for the superior console experience provided by the PS4's vastly superior GPU and GDDR5.

CalamityCB1021d ago

Thanks for the good laugh.
It's kinda like your a Zombie that obeys to Sony.

lol.....are you like 10 years old ?
lol

GarrusVakarian1021d ago

I can understand passion for a certain console but you take it way too far, you sound like you are paid by Sony to say what you say.

mewhy321021d ago

It's just the facts. If I were making stuff up would be different but it's all true and can be found all over the internet by anyone that isn't a sheep and will actually go out and do some research for themselves. Bone sheep don't like hearing that micro$oft is charing 100.00 more for an inferior piece of hardware, or that they are putting a spy camera into their living room, or that most things available online are behind a pay wall. They also don't like being reminded how micro$oft tried to screw the gamers, or how almost all bone software will be released on PC, therefore not exclusive at all. All true, none made up. That's why people don't like hearing it.

lol... dont shove sony to far up ur @$$

StoutBEER1021d ago

@mew God I hate you. Can you actually be excited for you're console instead of shoving marketing down our fuckin throats. Cause when you speak... type thats all it fuckin sounds like.

JsonHenry1021d ago

I'll be playing Titanfall on the PC as well. Im not good enough with a controller to even try playing that on the xbox1.

miyamoto1021d ago

That problem is easy to solve:
bring Titanfall to PS3 and PS4!

Actually, it is worse than that. The person does it for FREE!

If GDDR5 can warp reality in your room, then we're talking. Other than that, If third party games play the same on either console then what is the point?!

You know why Sony had better "looking" games? Because it has better first party studios.

So given recent news that Microsoft is now going to focus more into first party development, starting with Black Tusk Studio. It will use the full potential of Xbox One.

So don't convince yourself it's only specs that define how good a console is.

awi59511021d ago (Edited 1021d ago )

Gears of war was on PC as well but its still obviously a xbox game. Metal gear has been on every system in the universe so i guess its not a sony franchise game.

mediate-this1021d ago

You sound like you been rehearsing... Cool story bro

awi59511020d ago

I stopped buying COD when they fired the creators typical activision crap. I just hope they dont try this crap with blizzard i wish they could separate from the crap activision and watch them fall apart. World of warcrafts 500 million a month is holding this evil company up. If they leave bobby jackass wont act so cocky.

Are they starting to convince the public that going to Ps4 is more than an option ?

Deadpoolio1021d ago

They flat out said it in an interview during E3 with I believe Rev3Games. But then magically that video disappeared from their channel

hakeem09961021d ago

The video magically disappeared SMFH .The bullshit that comes out here

nukeitall1021d ago

That depends on if anyone can provide the dedicated servers needed at the cheap enough price that MS does.

Right now Sony dcoesn't have the infrastructure, let alone a competitive price.

solidjun51021d ago (Edited 1021d ago )

"Right now Sony dcoesn't have the infrastructure, let alone a competitive price."

You must be high! Ps3 had dedicated servers. What makes you think ps4 won't have any? Oh right...the cloud.

Oh please. Do you think Sony cant provide that?

P0werVR1021d ago

^

Why do you guys always miss the point that most dedicated server games on PS3 were mostly their own games?!

Xbox One most games will have it, no developers has to worry about the infrastructure. It's there and streamlined for multiplayer gaming.

Dedicated servers are very expensive overtime for developers, some of you make it seem as if it's that easy.

It will sell very well though.

Also, with new systems, games sometimes won't sell until 5-10 months after their release.

Not every game has great week 1-5 sales, and since they are all new and all next gen, they get a little more time on the shelves to make an impact.

That gets less and less as the generation goes on, but at first you can have a game that sells just "ok", but if it sells "ok, for 18 months in a row, then you are alright.

Alduin1021d ago

Depends on how good of a game it is. A lot of people are getting tired of the SSDD with CoD. Titanfall looks pretty good, though. It's on my buy list.

Deividas1021d ago (Edited 1021d ago )

It can be the best, still wont outsell COD. Its only coming to the PC, XOne and X360....while call of duty, already a top seller every single year, comes out on PC, XOne, PS4, PS3, X360....so doesnt matter how good it is, realistically, it has no chance. Though I am pretty excited for it

TheEvilWithin1021d ago

COD Ghosts is also coming to the Wii U. Just one more system that will see sales on COD over Titanfall.

LetoAtreides821021d ago

There's a reason he didn't include the Wii U in that list, no one has one and no one wants one.

mediate-this1021d ago

With time i can see this game taking COD's top spot, its fresh, has mechs and jet packs and at the same time as being fresh, it still has the famaliar feel to cod so people who will transfer over from cod to play titanfall, could jump right into it.

People will tell their cod friends titanfall is from the peeps who created cod.

Vertical battles

user74029311021d ago

it will probably sell 3 million lifetime.

LondonMediaOS1021d ago

I predict more than that. I think personally that this has the potential to be the next big thing.

LetoAtreides821021d ago

A multiplayer-only futuristic shooter with giant robot suits doing better than 3 million, I don't think so.

Eldyraen1021d ago (Edited 1021d ago )

I have a feeling it will sell over 3m easy on 360 alone. Online only is the main distractor but to be honest Xbox has a huge online audience (ps3 does too) which will help things along.

As CoD and TF aren't competing at same release its likely TF will get more sales due to wait then if competing directly. I can see around 5m first year easy as long as doesn't bomb (looks good and heard good things but never a guarantee) and likely another 1-2m on One/PC (combined) at very least in same period.

Many online CoD/BF players will give it a shot as something different but still familiar (particularly true for CoD players) after a few months of their game of choice.

I don't know if it would ever hit CoD numbers though even if on every platform.

@Leto I read your comment as sarcastic answer. Competitive multiplayer and giant robots are practically the perfect recipe for a blockbuster hit nowadays.

nukeitall1021d ago (Edited 1021d ago )

Let me see:

* most anticipated next generation game, check
* dedicated servers, check
* new dimension, check
* has mechs and is futuristic, check
* won gazillion prizes at E3, check
* very positive reception from people tried it, check
* created by guys created CoD
* advertised as created by guys created CoD

I think this will be f'in huge!

koolaid2511020d ago

10 million xbox1 xbox 360 and pc!!!

Demoa1021d ago

Ofcourse not. I don't get why games always wanna use the "CoD killer" slogan when it never happens. Whatever thou it'll be a good game none the less.

younglj011021d ago

tbh there is no need for an "CoD killer" because it seems like CoD is killing it self..

mediate-this1021d ago

If any game had a chance to kill cod, this may be it. Its different but at the sane time familiar, that is the key to its success. People love their cod ,but cod is the same ol story every year. Wall running, to jet packs to mechs. Its so many things going on, that crazy epilogue ending after each match.

Titanfall 1 may not sell cod numbers, but two or three or four could, especially on the shooter centric xbox.

Im so pumped for it my self. I like cod also but thats been dying down with each release. But i still buy it, just dont play each iteration as long.

RevXM1021d ago

Well better port the game to more systems.
Not getting a Bone anytime soon and I really dont want anything to do with EA origin on pc.
