Good or bad move for who? With one being offered on two platforms, heavily promoted on one, while the other will be on three, if console pre-orders can be used to judge then at the very least Titanfall is going to come in second. At worst will disappoint if XB1 fails to take off.

It's Destiny for me until Titanfall comes to PS4.

If Titanfall never arrives on PS4, I guess that's the downside of making exclusive games from big-time publishers.

Alexious1817d ago

Titanfall will arrive on PS4, rest assured.

MWong1817d ago (Edited 1817d ago )

I have been saying that from the start. Titanfall is being published by EA. EA is just too greedy and like the smell of money. They don't make console exclusives. It will probably make it's appearance on the PS4 in 2015.

I am pretty sure it's going to be interesting since both are new IP's. But, I think Destiny might edge out Titanfall in the BEGINNING only because it's on 1 more platform.

torchic1817d ago (Edited 1817d ago )

they probably chose a Spring 2014 launch caus that means EA can prep and hype up a Holiday 2014 release on PS3/PS4

since neither Battlefront nor Battlefield will be coming next year, Titanfall is definitely EA's shooter for next year and next year only, Battlefront probably 2015

do not worry, it will come to PS4.

Destiny for me! Way bigger game!

The 2 things i don't like about TitanFall
-Giant mech don't feel mechanical. Feels more like playing with a person. Same moves same weapon movement but in larger scale.
- Gameplay feels like COD and i don't like Cod.

If you guys want a great mech game check out HAWKEN (its free to play)

DeadlyFire1817d ago (Edited 1817d ago )

Never? hahaha You are aware we are talking about EA as a publisher. Orange Box wouldn't have made it to PS3 without EA pushing to port it.

Its a big plus for Activision/Bungie as they can get a strong foot in the FPS door that EA is leaving wide open on the PS4 even with the timed deal.

EA has to have some kind of shooter to go alongside Call of Duty in 2014. I know Battlefront is 2015. Medal of Honor is out. So what else fits into the picture? Bad Company 3? :0

Titanfall (PC) without a doubt. Destiny looks like a MMO or something similar, and I'm not in to MMO's. Probably purchase Destiny later on, if i find it interesting (and if it's released on PC). Don't like playing FPS's with a controller, KB/Mouse for me.

Bigpappy1817d ago (Edited 1817d ago )

X1 will not fail to take off. I can assure you of that much.

Titanfall will also be on 360 and PC. so That is a huge market. I remember many year Halo was beating multi-plats setting sales records and was only on one platform. Gears can along and also did vey well never even going to PC. So Titanfall has every opportunity to do just as well or better than those 2 very successful franchises.

Destiny will also do very well and might outsell Titanfalls, but that will not say anything for or against the quality on either game.

Dmagic1817d ago

it depends on what you mean by fail when side by side with ps4 numbers it will look like a failure all of my 360 friends are getting ps4 ive never been more happy knowing im not going to have to buy 2 consoles and 2 versions of each game this gen unless i truely want too!

strickers1817d ago

You can't assure anyone of that. It's unlikely it will fail but entirely possible it will be outsold by a margin. There are only so many hardcore fanboys.

Big_B0SS1817d ago

The double standard with some gamers is too dam high.

First you people rip Activision and Bobby Kotic for being a greedy man and milking COD and vowing to never support him and now you will a the mid night launch for this game so you can give Bobby your hard earn cash.

I am sticking to my word and Activison will not get a dime from me because of what they did to Infinity Ward orginal developers...ironicly emough, Titan Falls creators are the orignal Infinity Ward guys.

Godmars2901817d ago

Who's this, "You people" you speak? I don't play COD, Battlefield or even Assassin's Creed. So even if I didn't have major issues with how mechs were being used in the game I seriously doubt that I'll be touching Titanfall.

Goku7811817d ago (Edited 1817d ago )

Even if I have both systems by that time, I'm still going the Destiny route. I love good stories with my game, and it has the mysterious feel of Halo one. That's not to say I won't get the of game still.

bryam19821817d ago

More fps invasions next gen? Nah thanks i wont get neither

aceitman1817d ago

and if things don't go good for ms , I can see titanfall coming sooner than later for ps4.

Destiny looks like something special to me so I'll probably be going for that. I might have both PS4 and Xb One by then so I'll consider it carefully, although Titanfall doesn't look like it appeals to me.

LordDhampire1817d ago

Im going to say mistake for titanfall, yeah it will be fun but out of two all online games destiny looks like it will last longer and not get dull

OrangePowerz1817d ago

The beta comes early 2014 not the game?

FITgamer1817d ago

The game probably will too. I mean console betas are usually launched no more than a month before the game's release.

OrangePowerz1817d ago

I would imagine that`s a game you would want to release closer to the holiday season like September or October.

GamerXD1817d ago

Destiny is coming in 4 platforms while Titanfall will go for 3. Anyway, Destiny easily wins, cause it's Bungie.

macethedon1817d ago (Edited 1817d ago )

You say 4-3, but in destinys case it's also coming to the PS consoles, which in turn will make a huge dent into titanfalls numbers.

LoveOfTheGame1817d ago

But Titanfall has the PC crowd for them, wouldn't that offset or even overtake the PS console side?

Unless Destiny is also on PC them my argument is void.
