Titanfall won't sell as well as Call of Duty, says Zampella

GameSpot: "Respawn Entertainment cofounder says upcoming shooter won't match Call of Duty sales out of the gate; multiplayer-only game will be $60." (Call of Duty: Ghosts, PC, TitanFall, Vince Zampella, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

No shet Call of duty on every fking system.
mewhy32  +   567d 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.

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.
mewhy32  +   567d 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.

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.

Actually, it is worse than that. The person does it for FREE!
P0werVR  +   567d ago
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.

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.

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.
solidjun5  +   567d 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?

P0werVR  +   567d 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.
3-4-5  +   566d ago
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.
Alduin  +   567d 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.
Deividas  +   567d 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

COD Ghosts is also coming to the Wii U. Just one more system that will see sales on COD over Titanfall.
LetoAtreides82  +   567d 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-this  +   566d 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.

DirtyPimp  +   567d ago
it will probably sell 3 million lifetime.
LondonMediaOS  +   567d ago
I predict more than that. I think personally that this has the potential to be the next big thing.
LetoAtreides82  +   567d ago
A multiplayer-only futuristic shooter with giant robot suits doing better than 3 million, I don't think so.
Eldyraen  +   567d 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.

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!

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.
younglj01  +   567d ago
tbh there is no need for an "CoD killer" because it seems like CoD is killing it self..
mediate-this  +   566d 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.
RevXM  +   567d 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.

And that's why EA won't keep this game away from PS bc it's not going to be as big as they think it will be! Not to mention just ignoring millions of potential buyers is stupid on EA's part not going to happen! EA aint that stupid just look how low there pre orders are!
Sevir  +   567d ago
Microsoft paid to have this come first the Xbox platforms... So EA and Respawn made their profit!...

I think Sony pushed for something similar but Activision was probably asking for an exorbitant amount, so both just settled on marketing association and Exclusive DLC for a month with Bungie for the Life of the Destiny IP!
Mikelarry  +   567d ago
if re-spawn really want to outshine cod bring it to all platforms, imagine if this over takes cod and everyone moves to this over cod how pissed will activision be for letting those guys go
805Junior805  +   567d ago
If they never let them go, we would never have this game. Everything happens for a reason.

And thats why i think micro has a exclusive deal with ea, or something in the works, if just explodes in to mania, then 360 could possibly make another aggreement or try to ink a deal with ea for a exclusive for the bone of some sorts.

Didnt somy have a chance to make modern warfare 1 a exclusive for ps3??

I'm not a PC gamer and I'm not interested in an X1, but I will have a PS4. I'm talking about the people in my shoes. I mean, there will be plenty to play so it won't be any skin off of my back to miss Titan Fall, but I wouldn't mind giving it a shot one day if it comes to the console I have.

Call me a Sony fanboy if you want, but there's no way I'm supporting MS's X1. Doesn't make me any less of a gamer. By the way, I make my own money and can afford to be a multi-platform owner. I've owned almost every system that has came out in the last 20 years.

Let's see here. Not on as many platforms. CHECK. Not an established franchise yet. CHECK. Its an online only game. CHECK. Like or not COD sells a shit ton of games and guess what? Not everybody plays online. I know it's hard to believe but it's true. A lot of those sales come from people who just like the SINGLE PLAYER. All 12 million of those people who bought Black ops 2 on 360 alone all play online. There is a least 2 or 3 people that don't...haha. Ya'll get my point....
Excalibur  +   567d ago
I'm one of them, I barley ever play any of the MP in the COD games.

Some people like the single player. Different tastes for different people. Are you referring to me sucking at the game? I wasn't talking about myself and what does playing online have to do with you "sucking" at the game. Black Ops 2 sold 12 million alone on 360. So what your saying is that all 12 million of those people play online. Please show me the figures...Nevermind, thanks for completely missing the point...

Fist off all we can agree it will never have sales like COD is and there is 2 reasons y. Fist it's not on all platforms like cod is 2nd its MP only now I know its not a big deal but there r still people that play sp games and to me I think it would of been kool to added a story with how titian were invented many kool ideas could of been made but o well. Anyway in Oder 4 it to sell like cod it would need to be on ps4 and 3 otherwise no fat chance it will though I think it might come to ps4 at a later date cause we all know how much ea Luvs money and the fact that there r way more ps4 users then X1.

Stop hiding behind "it's only on one console". If it was the be all end all, it could top COD sales combined, on PC alone. It wouldn't out sell it even if it was on PS3/PS4, it's fact, let it be.

The part where cod will outsell titanfall, it's too established. No game, no matter how good this gen has outsold cod, by all means this could change, but realistically, it won't, but you won't admit it until titanfall releases sales. Everyone in here is a nerd trying to defend a new toy, it's sad.

Who cares? CoD is rubbish, CoD sells the most. No different to the movie or music industry, the shit rises to the top. Games like CoD are created for maximum sales, that is the first, and sometimes only, goal.

Game news is the pits at the moment. It is a bunch of guys sitting around thinking what will send the fanboys nuts? But it seems to be at the lowest I have seen in a very long time.
Joe913  +   559d ago
Regardless of what ppl say the game will come out on ps4 the dev pretty much confirmed it on the e3 episode of the hip hop gamer interview. Hip hop gamer used to be on n4g but not anymore.
