Titanfall an Xbox One, 360, PC Exclusive for Its 'Lifetime'

During its quarterly earnings call today, EA squashed recent rumors about Titanfall coming to PlayStation 4. CFO Blake Jorgensen emphasized that Titanfall "is exclusive only for the lifetime of the title on Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC."

Jorgensen also assuaged worries that Respawn was rushing Titanfall to market, declaring the intended release date was always in the March, April, May time frame. "No, we're not doing that at all," COO Peter Moore said on the subject of Titanfall's alleged hurry. He praised Respawn Entertainment's talent, and anticipates it will review "very highly" when it launches in March 2014. (EA, PS4, TitanFall, Xbox One)

I dunno.. maybe EA are hoping to make the next Gears of War for the Xbox One so to speak. People can hate on Microsoft all they want but nobody can deny they know how to market their exclusives. Seeing as Titanfall is the first real system seller, I imagine they'll be quick to pick it up and promote it as heavily as possible.

Still, I guess it would be naive to underestimate EA's greed. Titanfall 2 will most likely be on the ps4 too.

@sobotz

Denial? No. I'm getting it for PC, so I could care less if it comes to PS4. However, this is EA were talking about. Of course EA is going to deny it. They're going to hype it up, make it sound exclusive so everyone buys it instead of waiting, then release the PS4 version to make even more money.

EA doesnt own the IP so they cant do what ever they want.
gaffyh  +   169d ago
That sentence is worded really strangely, "only for the lifetime...", why doesn't it just say is exclusive for the lifetime?

I still think this will come to PS4 at some point, not that I will get it for the PS4 I just think it will happen. Will get it for 360 when its available.
cleft5  +   169d ago
I wouldn't be surprised if this game did stay exclusive to Xbox One. However, the series will not be exclusive. So next year when Titanfall 2 comes out, it will be another story.

If you think about it, it does make sense to launch a new ip on one platform if that platform holder gives them a bunch of money to remain exclusive. That way you can launch a new IP and still play it safe. Still they could be lying and 6 months later we see Titanfall come to PS4. Only time will tell, doesn't matter to me anyways. Titanfall looks amazing if you are good at fps online games, I am not so this game doesn't interest me regardless.
Sayai jin  +   169d ago
Hmmm. I am one that believe console exclusives are good and help give people a reason to buy a particular console, but also do not mind if really good games go multi-plat so everyone can experience the game. I see a lot of people saying , but EA and Mass Effect. I do not remember EA ever saying Mass Effect would be an exclusive for lifetime. Maybe MS said that, but not EA. I know it's EA, but they are saying it plain and simple that it will be that way for lifetime. Anyways, the games appears to be a stellar new IP so it would suck if one console gamers do not experience it.
-Alpha  +   169d ago
I'm sure Titanfall 2 will come to PS4.

MS must have adjusted their deal, otherwise they'd have made this known sooner. One thing is certain, EA must be making an incredible amount of money upfront.

Regardless, it's a pretty big move for MS to lock this away from PS4. I like what I see from Titanfall, and I can understand that a lot of people are genuinely excited for it. I was really hoping to play it on consoles/PS4. Just going to have to accept that I wont get everything I want sticking only to a PS4, but it's not the biggest loss for me.

Well, obviously the sequel will more likely come to PS4 INEVITABLY!

Just because they say lifetime of this title doesn't mean for it's sequel.

Get it, got it, good!!!

But as history has shown us, ALL good third party games that first released on Xbox 360 shows that no matter what, it was ALWAYS bought for Xbox 360.

Microsoft will for sure make this to be better played with Azure. Gaming is going to be sweet! Titanfall than Destiny 2qt of next year?! Gaming stamina baby.

Well its going to sell a sh*t ton so maybe Titanfall 2 will come to ps4??? Thats unfortunate news for ps4 because its a great new IP that will at least for the time that matters will stay exclusive to xbox consoles.

Although I think both should have some in house exclusives to sell their console Im not selfish so it would be cool to see Titanfall sequels on ps4 so everybody can enjoy it, however speaking from a business perspective it would be smart if Microsoft paid to lock up t he IP, like they did with Gears.

Ahhh after all this fuss over this one game. Imagine if it turned out it wasn't all that great anyway.

What if it turned out to be the 'Too Human' of Microsoft exclusives.

I hope it doesn't honestly I want it to be great I want a fun new IP but seeing the frenzy over this game watching it fall flat would also be kinda amusing you have to admit.

I find it really weird it seems and appears to have all this hype here but it's Pre orders look really weak. I don't know maybe there are a lot of people still on the fence about it or maybe it doesn't have a big enough profile even still.

We take it for granted everyone knows about the game cos we visit games sites like this but the low Pre orders suggest it isn't as well known as I imagined at this point

FamilyGuy  +   169d ago
One of the devs literally said that they only recent found out and that EA made a deal with MS. If the game sells and reviews good enough MS might set up another deal to keep any franchise exclusive as well.
The reason why the devs had been so elusive up till this point was because it was only a timed exclusive till EA and MS made this deal recently.

It's still coming to 360 and it's still coming to PC but a PS4 version would have to be some TitanFall Sigma -like situation.

I'm good with Infamous SS, DriveClub and Killzone though. TitanFall still looks fun but I lost a lot of interest in TitanFalls CoD/current gen look after seeing so many other great looking games that are also fun looking on top of their looks. If they overhaul/upgrade the graphics I might be jealous though.

The only reason Mass Effect came to PS3 is because EA bought Bioware and that changed the deal that Bioware and Microsoft had. EA already owns Respawn so that won't be happening this time.

guess what, It's a goddamn online only game which means there is really no story line to speak of so a year from now when Titanfall 2 comes out on PS4 we'll all be on the same level story wise. There would really be no reason to get Titanfall 1 at that point. Don't get me wrong this is a big win for microsoft but it's still not a big enough reason for a microsoft hater like myself to buy an xbone.

Let's just hope this game turns out to be good and not just creating hype for nothing.
You dont own an xbox, go play it on PC if you're interested. I'm sure it's gonna run at more than 720p on PC :P
FlunkinMonkey  +   169d ago
Typical MS really.. Instead of investing in 1st party studio's and avoiding any obstacles with release on other systems, they just buy the rights to deny it to another console..

I'm honestly not bothered, it looks fun, but i would personally take killzone and Planetside 2 over this in a flash, let alone together.
VENOMACR1227  +   169d ago
Finally! The X1 has a real exclusive. I know "its on PC and 360" its still exclusive to Microsoft. What game right now makes you want an X1? Ryse? Nope. Forza? Maybe. KI? Nope. So it's good that they finally have a game that can hopefully take over for Halo and Gears which are becoming stale.

Yeah I've never said the X1 version is bad, honestly its not that far behind....I'm just insinuating that this news being released today was no accident. MS needed a bold move to keep some of the folk on the edge from jumping to the other side.

Again I've been gaming on PC for the last 5 yrs and if I want titan fall then I will get it there. Honestly I've been down the jet pack and overpowered Mechs with Killzone 3. Really this news does not bother me in the least.

@AlexanderNevermind - The graphics on BF4 on the PS4 are better. Many critics are saying this. That's great news for PS4 owners, but that does not mean the XB1 version is bad. It still looked great. I doubt anyone will be playing BF4 thinking aaah let me count the pixels or I remember the graphics comparison...maybe some fanboys might, but not the cores.

To your comment...This was not MS that mentioned this being exclusive this time, it was directly from EA. So what does this have to do with MS.

With that, PS4 gamers can buy an XB1 or play Titan Fall on a PC if they have one...or maybe this...some of them might not care about the about the game.
AlexanderNevermind  +   169d ago
@Sayai Jin

Also Destiny is due to be released the same time...So I'm sure PS4 owners will have plenty to keep us busy. Just no Titan Fall.

Back to the point that this was a recent move by MS/EA see link below; the Dev says as much...or you honestly think the dev would not know that their game was a platform exclusive......

this will sadden a lot of PS4 gamers. Titanfall is lighting up next gen and the hype is immense. This could be the next big thing in gaming and damn does the game look good. This is a killer app for Xbox One. Next gen all I hear is about Titanfall. It won pretty much all awards from E3 and other gaming shows and public reception seems Titanfall most exciting game for next gen. People who do not have a Xbox One, Xbox 360 or gaming PC will sorely miss out.

Honestly, if you read in between the lines of this statement, a potential sequel could easily come to PS4, as well as the original. It really doesn't matter to me, personally, either. Yeah yeah, Titanfall is next big thing since Jesus. We hear it all the time. At the end of the day, it's a generic looking shooter that's getting hyped because CoD fanboys are finally getting bored of CoD. As a PS4 owner, I'm perfectly satisfied with Killzone, from what I've seen.

Who is going to be saddened by the loss of another COD clone? Seing the Battlefield videos today makes it even more apparent that most of us wont miss titanfall.

or

6v6 spawnkilling because of tiny maps

Think about that, COD maps are soo freaking small, you can get spawnkilled on 12 player maps. That is a joke.

I just don't understand what is so exciting about COD with robots?

besides COD attempted vehicles in World at War and you all hated it, and complained about vehicles being OP for COD. fast forward to today, and that same exact concept is all the sudden Award winning?

7 vs 7 is what titanfall is rumored to be at. There is nothing ambitious about this game. Mech Warrior online has it beat in every way.

Seems like a strange explanation to me, for the lifetime of the game on Xbox 360, Xbox One And PC.

Seems like an explanation that leaves a window open.

Why didn't they say in plain English that the game will only be on the three mentioned platforms and will not be made for any other system ever, if it is truly not in consideration for PS4.

Xbots should not be surprised when it is announced for PS4 six months to a year from now.

Doesn't seem strange at all. Titanfall will be an exclusive to the PC, 360 & XBO.

Either way the first one will be exclusive, no hidden message in what he said.

This is what makes me laugh about xbox gamers, i can lay money on the fact that PS4 will over its life time get TONS of TRUE exclusives! more then xbox! that's the funny thing see, any Playstation gamer who wants to play most of the xbox exclusives has to only have a pc, while if a xbot wants to play one of the great Playstation exclusives HE HAS TO BUY A PLAYSTATION CONSOLE FACT! without it, its not happening!!!

Xbox exclusives are for the most part not even true exclusives, they are whored out to Microsoft buy lazy and greedy third parties, meanwhile Sony on the other hand OWNS most of the companies who bang out exclusives year after year on Playstation consoles!

I will be enjoying titanfall on my pc at a higher then 720p resolution (LMAO AT XBOX 720p) and at a higher frame rate, xbox guys cant say shit! since their console doesn't hardly have any true exclusives, Playstation has LOTS!

And if past generations are anything to go by, most likely give it 2 to 3 years and watch most of the good games will dry up on x1, and they will be left with a few yearly rehashes and KINNECT GAMES an TV SHOWS! LOL while Playstation gamers will be getting new i.p's and true exclusives every year or so, this is what's going to happen trust me, if history is anything to go by.

Its sad but true, Microsoft do this all the time, they get a few good deals and focus on games for the first 2 to 3 years, and then don't bother much, while Sony on the other hand continue to support their platform year after year, look at the ps2 and ps3 no one can deny that! hell this year alone look how many great true exclusives the PS3 has gotten?

And if you analyse the wording of that ea guy, you can clearly see that he is not talking about the whole franchise, only the first game.
So most likely titan fall 2 will be on PS4, or like said above their will be a sigma like move, maybe then we will finally get a true next gen console version of titan fall, LOL 720p on x1? lol it looks like a current gen game sorry but its true, the textures are muddy,and game play looks generic, cod with mechs that's all! i don't see what the hype is all about? it looks good, but nothing earth shattering.

"Xbox exclusives are for the most part not even true exclusives, they are whored out to Microsoft buy lazy and greedy third parties, meanwhile Sony on the other hand OWNS most of the companies who bang out exclusives year after year on Playstation consoles!"

You do realize that to play Titanfall on a PC you have to have a Windows OS right? So it is a true exclusive... to Microsoft products. Microsoft will be laughing on their way to the bank while your playing it on your superior PC running their OS.

"And if past generations are anything to go by, most likely give it 2 to 3 years and watch most of the good games will dry up on x1, and they will be left with a few yearly rehashes and KINNECT GAMES an TV SHOWS!

Microsoft does it all the time... by that you mean the last generation. Must not remember much about the OG Xbox generation do you?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

Plenty of exclusives throughout its life.

"So most likely titan fall 2 will be on PS4, or like said above their will be a sigma like move, maybe then we will finally get a true next gen console version of titan fall,"

Wait... PC version isnt next gen but a PS4 version would be? No No... I think not. Thats a PS Fail right there.

"Look at the way they worded the announcement...that leaves it open so it still can come to the PS4"

"I dont really care, I wasnt getting this game anyways"

Even with this announcement folks are grasping. Its not coming for the PS4...end of story!! I knew coming in this comments what I was going to read and I wasnt wrong.

This game is WANTED by all gamers. And the fact that these comments are made cements it for me. If this game was on the PS4 ONLY...all the ones say MEH about it...would be shouting from the rooftops about how great this game is and rubbing it in other faces.

I challenge you to find some sort of hypocrisy from my comment history regarding the things you just said guys.

I am a PS-fan and I despise MS for moltitude of reasons but I never EVER lie or bend the truth etc. That would make me a hypocrite and a fanboy.

I can wholeheartedly say that I don't really care about Titanfall. hell I don't even care about nextgen atm. PS3/Vita is all I need.

That's what happens when people won't shut up about how it will be on the PS4 too! I'm sure Microsoft paid a big chunk to lock it down. I was prepared to (not) play it so it doesn't bother me.but it would of been welcome on the PS4 for sure.

You call that an exclusive? LMAO
i am getting it on my gaming pc, and will play it at higher then 720p resolution LMAO while on x1 you can play it at a last genb resolution, just like the xbox 360 folks, BWAH HAHAHAH!!!!

I will be enjoying my countless TRUE EXCLUSIVES on my PS4, which you cannot play on anything other then PS4!!!!! now that's an exclusive!

Seriously why do people even bother with xbox? i play most multi plats at native 1080p 60fps or higher on my gaming pc, should i buy it for HALO? LOL
You fail to grasp that most core gamers like myself own a gaming pc along with the consoles which have EXCLUSIVES we want to play, x1 has NONE!!! and even the ones it does, at sub par graphics barely next gen, what's the point?

An exclusive should be only on that particular system alone, and so should help sell units for that system, PS4 has this, PS3 has this, X1 barely has any!! BWAH HAHAH so try harder noob!

Gotta give credit where it's due though. MS scored big with this one I feel, but then again I think they need all the help they can get recently, especially after the past weeks, and the upcoming future comparisons of multiplatform games.

Personally not affected by this as 1: it has no single player, and 2: my net is waaay too shit to online game, 3: whenever my nets gets upgraded there's always the option to run it on a PC, and by the looks of it it won't need a super stellar rig to run either.

Kinda almost feel sorry for the devs though, missing out on all those PS4 sales. I'd be fuming about getting signed exclusively when the other console has way better press and pre-order numbers. EA gonna EA though I guess :p.
halfblackcanadian  +   169d ago
I think the pre-order numbers aren't as big a deal as people would like to think. We hear partial numbers often, but the fact is the PS4 is more than likely in the 30% more pre-orders range. IF each pre-order accounts for a gamer on one console and not the other (I know 5 people myself that this is not the case) and then you factor in the ratio of people who would buy this game specifically...well, there isn't a whole ton of loss.
Additionally, I work with a lot of mothers with kids who are going Xbox One who haven't pre-ordered because of the extra stuff (fitness mostly). Not to say these numbers will specifically speak to Titanfall sales, but the total sales numbers can change once you factor in those of us who didn't pre-order.
BlackTar187  +   169d ago
Why isn't Bungie next game carrying more hype? Kinda weird. I think if you switched the situation around with this game and destiny that the hype would be crazy for Destiny. It's really this type of thing that happens all the time.

All of the sudden everyone is interested in Dead Rising game sbtu not many people cared for #1 or #2 when they released. Now DEADRISING OMG GREATEAST LAUCNH GAME EVER CAN'T WAIT TO PLAY.

The history is with Bungie yet its multip platform so now all the xbox crowd cares abotu is TitanFall. You can see it in this chat area. Xbox fans saying Sony fans are sad yet can't stop themselves from throwing nothing but insults at other people. Its just the line int he sand moving the american media does with American products
4Sh0w  +   169d ago
Not true while Destiny looks great Titanfall had that gameplay spark that was refreshing. Why would so many outlets just fabricate hype for Titanfall? and no apparent bias since most of the same ones like IGN, Gamespot, etc even speculated that it was coming to ps4. Im not knocking your opinion but just because you dont see what the hype is about doesn't make everybody else wrong. Hell you could be right Destiny COULD be better but hype is about excitement so far Im interested in both but Titanfall has me more excited. Maybe its because Destiny hasnt shown as much and coming out later. Why do you bring Destiny up now only when Titanfall is confirmed exclusive? Also the original Dead Rising was hyped quite a bit as at the time there werent any console games with so many charachters on screen. #2 not so much as it was just a progression on the first.

I may end up getting Destiny once more info comes and it gets closer to launch. But I can honestly say that I dont really know exactly Destiny is going to be....a shooter....dungeon crawler....MMO...action??

The few vids I have seen I can say it looked boring. But it looks like the type of game that has to be played versus watched to get it.

Titanfall on the other hand looks like allot of action and fun!!! And the fact the people who have played it are backing that sentiment up.

It would be one thing if MS, EA or Respawn was hyping there own game...buts its the Journo who are hyping it. Myself Ill take the word of ppl who played it and praise it versus the dev praising there own game (cause of course there going to say positives ..even if they KNow its Shite lol)

You reach to turn on the lights and you feel other hands on the switch. You begin to see eyes coming towards you...and then you realize it's some rabid fanboys (both sides) closing in on you.... They got in there before you did so they can spread their hysteria. You finally manage to turn on the lights, but due to the "Powah of da cloud" and the "50% more power" the lights die out....The fanboys say to you we have you nooow...booohaaaahaa

On topic, my daughter wrote the short story...she is getting PS4 and I am as well. My son said jokingly to her when he read this article "ha ha you won't be playing Titanfall on your PS4".

They can say it as many times as they like and I still wouldn't believe them.

Why would they jeopardize potential sales for the Xbox One version, they know of all the negative press surrounding the Xbox One and are probably crapping themselves that it's not going to do as well in numbers as they want...this is EA so even if it looks good to us they will still be disappointed. They thought MS was going to have the running jump on Sony and thats why they did this deal.

As soon as the game comes out and they make as many people buy it for the Xbox One they will work toward getting it on the PS4.

There is no point, business wise, to talk about a PS4 version when you want as many people to buy the version your doing at the minute.

It's like MS and the "Kinect-less SKU" which will most likely happen next year. They say it's not going to happen ONLY BECAUSE they know if they come out and say it now most people will hold off and get the cheaper bundle which in turn means less money coming Microsoft's way.

It is a little vague "Titanfall is exclusive only for the lifetime of the "TITLE" on Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC". So I think people can assume Titanfall 2 may still come too all platforms considering they didn't specify next installments and Mass Effect is a great example an reason why people will speculate. Anyway if Respawn even wanted there game to come on PS4 I'm sure they would want to wait till Sony gets there Cloud services up and running first.

Well if you truly know your history the reason ME went to ps3 is because Bioware was brought out by EA so the deal created a opportunity to bring the game to ps3. This contract is between EA/Respawn/Micro. So Bioware was relatively very very tiny compared to EA and Nobody is going to buy out EA anytime soon.

why do people use "I'm getting a PS4" or "I'm getting an Xbox One" as a of way to add credibility to what they're saying? nobody gives a flying fuck what console you do or don't decide to buy. if people think it somehow helps prevent looking like a fanboy, it absolutely does not you can own every console under the sun and still be a fanboy. so let's all cut that crap.

and judging from Vince's reaction it looks like Respawn was working on a PS4 version til Microsoft swooped in with their moneybags at the last minute and saved the day. so I was perfectly right in expecting a PS4 version. too bad though, it looked like a nice way to replace my CoD burnout.

so yes, I will play Knack and enjoy the heck out of it and platinum it, thank you very much. and now I guess I have more time for Destiny & KZSF:)

So I take it your NOT getting a XBOX ONE. Based on your comment.

If im wrong apologies if you are buying one.

If your not getting it. Why do you feel the need to come into a positive XB1 article??

Reason I ask is because I see so many who claim to be PS4 only but are constantly lurking around PR) MS/XBOX articles.

Me...I am getting a XBOX one. There are 3-4 games that im interested in at launch. But I am and many others are NOT spending $400-500 for one game.

System seller means a game that is so hot that yes you will say something like I did in 2009....man Uncharted 2 looks HOT...I think its time to go get a PS3 along with Uncharted 2.

Titanfall looks to be THAT hot game...that yes...allot well jump and spend $500 to get it. And by March (release time for Titanfall) XBO will have a solid library of games for it.

ger2396  +   169d ago
Maybe there's a stipulation in the contract. The game must sell a certain amount of copies in order for it to stay exclusive. Just speculating.
theXtReMe1  +   169d ago
Purely from a business standpoint, this is one of the worst decisions I think I've ever seen another business make. Most analysts predict that the PlayStation 4 will outsell the Xbox One at least 2 to 1 throughout its lifetime. So unless Microsoft shelled out, what could be, hundreds of millions of dollars to keep this exclusive. I doubt this was a great business decision.

Truthfully, I could care less if the game came to the PS4, but I know a lot of gamers would want it and I think it's a mistake for them to keep it exclusive. You're talking tens of millions, if not hundreds of millions, of people who won't be contributing to the game economy because they own the PS4.

On top of that, with games like Planetside 2 and Destiny, there will be other options as to what we would've expected had we been able to play this game in our system. Pretty much the same games, if not better.

So, I would suggest to my fellow PlayStation 4 owners to not see this as a loss, but as a gain for another developer(possibly first party, that will take full advantage of the system power... Like Killzone) to make a better experience for our system.
creatchee  +   169d ago
@theXtReMe1

So what's your plan then - have EVERY exclusive that Xbox One has go to PS4 as well because of increased sales potential? Would you want your PS4 exclusives to come to Xbox One so that more money could be made? And before you even say "buh-buh-but PS4 is going to outsell Xbox One" - I agree that it will. But if PS4 sells 100 million, then keeping that 2:1 ratio means that Xbox One will sell 66.6 million. That's a huge market, and given your "missed opportunity" stance, then any PS4 third party exclusive is a mistake as well.

Like it or not, exclusives exist to differentiate the libraries of competing consoles. Titanfall is MS exclusive. It won't have as many sales as if it were a multiplat - so be it. But saying it is a missed opportunity isn't a valid argument because that is the case for EVERY exclusive.

Yes, but not 3rd party exclusives. M$ should be investing that money into new studios with fresh ideas. Not into a CoD clone with mechs.

That settles that then. I was going to try it on PC anyhow. I just wish it had a proper campaign. I know what Respawn are doing with the story but the universe looks really interesting and I would of welcomed a campaign with open arms.

I think around the time it comes out as well Second Son is due out so everyone will have something great to play regardless. I'm looking forward to Destiny a bit more. The universe in that just looks astounding.

This will never get COD numbers if they dont go multiplat.
BobBelcher  +   169d ago
Respaw might be more about making games than collecting 'CoD numbers.'
DA_SHREDDER  +   169d ago
Well thats so funny you say that considering they are the ones who made COD, and now they aren't gonna try to out sell the competition? Your stupid comment defies all logic. Though their business model defies logic, as well as the fact this is a MP only game. No story mode, no explanation of why. I'd go as far as to say they don't believe in themselves, which is why they aren't trying to compete with their own success. Sure, MS might be payin them billions just to make this a multiplat, which is why it doesn't surprise me why they got to cut so many edges.
jackanderson1985  +   169d ago
halo 3 sold only 2.2 mil less than blops which is the best selling COD...
DA_SHREDDER  +   169d ago
Thats 143 million less dollars in their pockets, its a lose lose situation for games and publishers.
jackanderson1985  +   169d ago
From a revenue point of view yea it's 143 lost. Overall it's considerably less when u take in specific console development costs, advertising and sony's cut
PSN-JeRzYzFyNeSt  +   169d ago
thier loss
Kayant  +   169d ago
Man that must of cost MS a truckload of moneyhatting considering they're not even publishing or funding it. Big win for MS.
Thomaticus  +   169d ago
Well this is one game I'll never buy. I like Titanfall, but it's ONE game. I am not spending 500 dollars to play ONE game.
xxV0rschlaghammer  +   169d ago
That's alright though, we all know (at least according to most people on forums/websites/etc) that everyone has 4k/60fps+ ready machines with 128GB RAM, 8 2TB+ enterprise level SSD's and multiple 4k ready displays + more, so it's all good right? Just play the PC version "it'll be better anyways".
d0nT wOrrY  +   169d ago
I don't get it. What's so special about Titanfall? It's looks so generic to me. I'm really not excited about it at all. So CoDish.
xxV0rschlaghammer  +   169d ago
Funny, when there was a possibility for multi-plat everyone was drooling over it, now that its confirmed MS exclusive no one wants it now. lol
TKCMuzzer  +   169d ago
Not really, some of us have felt that way since it was announced. I still watch videos of it now wanting to get excited but I get that nagging COD movement from the aiming etc and I'm hoping to leave that with this Gen. I hope I'm wrong but they know the crowd their after so I imagine that's what the controls are like. As I said I hope I'm wrong.

On a side note, there are alot of people going on about this is a great Microsoft exclusive, I was under the impression they have paid respawn and EA to make it exclusive, its not the same thing. Its a shame Microsoft couldn't actually have more game studios in house, create jobs, encourage creativity etc, I only say this as I personally don't think it good for the industry that Microsoft is throwing so much money at a third party publisher who are greedy enough as it is.
I hope the game is good but third party should be third party and the gamers decide, it should be up to the first party studios to convince us were our money should be going.
d0nT wOrrY  +   169d ago
Did you see me drooling over a mediocre shooter? No? Then shut up.
static360  +   169d ago
ouch, can't get more blunt than that. sony fanboys trying hard to spin this another way. let xbox have this one huh, sony already got great exclusives
Majin-vegeta  +   169d ago
Yea i guess you guys could have this since you guys need all the stuff you can muster after the BF fiasco and next up COD.

If i like what I see i'll get it on my 360 in the bargain bin.
mhunterjr  +   169d ago
I don't think the typical gamer cares about the BF and COD resolutions as much as you do. I mean really, people just by the version for which ever console they have, and play it. They may never in there life see it being played on another console.

Truth be told, if a game is fun, people will buy it.

Look at your own logic, your more that willing to settle for the 360 version, so graphics can't be that important to you.

You mean the BF and CoD game that we are still getting plus on top of that, Titanfall, Sunset Overdrive, Quantum Break!

Compared to Killzone and.......

Oh and the indie titles you guys have, but I'll just play all those gems on my PC.

Told you Majin, if you want to play Titanfall so bad get a Xbox One. I'll save a mech just for you.

Edit:
Now CoD graphics matter...lmao, the hilarity of it all.

Thought you guys didn't care about CoD though? Not a real core gamers game? Thats what I hear around here a lot anyways, so whats it matter what res it runs at? lol?

get it on 360, PC or XB1, in the end your money will go to MS :D

No, seriously though, i'm quite surprised EA wouldn't take take the chance to make more moolah.

Still don't believe it though, EA is EA, *looks at Mass Effect 2*
deadfrag  +   169d ago
Microsoft payed up front a big fat check to be a completly exclusive on Microsoft machines.The great problem will be if it Bombs;and been a MP only game it certain can have the same faith has Shadow run,APB,Brink...especially knowing that M$ Already haves a Multiplayer battle Horse set in the same gendre and thats HALO.

_FantasmA_  +   169d ago
I'm guessing M$ spent a lot on this game, so that means more ads, higher Live prices, or worse: no more new franchises, but you will see Titanfail 4 when the Xbone is dying out in a few years.
Kujii  +   169d ago
+1 for suprised. Had my fingers crossed for a 1 year timed exclusive.

Might pick up an X1 next year afterall.
Destrania  +   169d ago
I love that this 'exclusive' is coming to 360 and PC lol. Apparently Xbots don't know what that word really means. Truth be told though, I was never excited for this like I am for BF4 and Killzone, so no biggie. It just seems like CoD with mechs, and I hate CoD. Not even going to bother with the PC version either. Sony has and will have more than enough incredible exclusives for me this generation and next-generation. Edit: With the way EA does business, I'll bet even though they made this claim it will end up on PS4 at some point, and I still won't buy it lol.

Who says it's exclusive to the xbox one?
It's exclusive to microsoft platforms, but not to the xbox one.

Besides, I can definitely see titanfall becoming the next gears for microsoft. It probably won't sell halo numbers, but it can do an easy and cool 5-6 million, give or take
TKCMuzzer  +   169d ago
I don't know, its multiplayer only and its full price, that will effect sales. I know many who only bought gears for the campaign and hardly touched the multiplayer.
secretcode  +   169d ago
The precise term that Microsoft has used wasn't "Console exclusive", but rather "Microsoft Exclusive", so that covers Xbox 360, Xbox One and Games For Windows Live.
Ashes2Ashes  +   169d ago
They have been touting as a next gen console exclusive. Which it is. I like to look at it more as a Microsoft exclusive since it is only on their platforms... Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Windows.
TKCMuzzer  +   169d ago
Its not a Microsoft exclusive as they have contributed nothing to creating the game. Its exclusive due to money, simple as that.
_FantasmA_  +   169d ago
Yeah this game looks lame. I wouldn't buy if it on PS4 or PC either. I can't stand COD and anything related to it.
