Only First Titanfall Title to Be Xbox/PC Exclusive, Respawn Will Work on PS4, Zampella Confirms

The news that Titanfall will be an Xbox One/Xbox 360/PC exclusive for the whole lifetime of the title surprised many, but for those that want to see the developer work on PS4 there’s still hope, as Co-Founder Vince Zampella just confirmed, also mentioning that the developer learned just recently that Titanfall exclusivity wasn't temporary. (PC, PS4, TitanFall, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

So, pretty much confirms:

-Deal to make it exclusive forever was very recent
-Titanfall 2 coming to PS4... unless MS throws even more money

Too bad ps4 owners will never get to experience this game..such a shame.. if next titanfall is confirm for ps4 that's cool. only titanfall would have sold millions of consoles for MS already though. It'll be like what gta is to the ps3. but titanfall to the xbox one.

Millions of consoles.. like halo did for the xbox

The game comes to pc and xbox 360 but those are the lower end. Even the dev confirmed that

It's a shame that people won't get to experience a game that A. you've yet to play and B. is also on other devices that they may have? OK.

OT: With deals like these, a TitanFall 2 may be the case now for PS4, but if it does well enough on MS devices, they may opt to stay exclusive with them.

Every game that came out on the Xbox first did what it was intended to do: push the 360.

The time "insert game here" came to PS3 nobody cared and it had no impact whatsoever on the 360.

Same thing here. Titan Fall in this gens first system seller and MS will be getting the benefits.

Also, why is nobody begging for Planetside, Warframe and whatever PC/PS4 game and only ??

Good thing I have a decent enough PC to run Titanfall in a higher resolution than 720p like on the Xbone, except for that fact that I don't want to. I'd rather not play a CoD clone with mechs, gave up on that franchise a long, long time ago. Too bad Xbots won't get to experience the legions of the most incredible games to ever release that are only on Playstation. Derp. I hate moronic and foolish people.

I wonder how much money they handed over for this, it must be in the region of GTA exclusive DLC, perhaps even more. Money down the drain if that is the case because its not fully exclusive so is not guaranteed to shift consoles, so they will make royalties on it, but that's not really the point early in a console life cycle.

I think you need to at least have a look at the Xbox One version before you go to tooting your horn.

As far as we know it may not be that much of an improvement over the 360 version. Chances are I can play the same game on my 360 with the same resolution and gameplay (720p according to rumors) without having to spend $500 on an X1 and wait for Titan Fall 2 on PS4...

My initial thought was that this is a good move by MS, but the more I think of it. The more I feel it won't be a big deal. Most new computers that sell for $500 will be able to run this game at 720p. Coupled this with the fact that the DS4 will work with all computers I'm thinking almost everyone will be able to enjoy this game regardless.

^SuperLupe, XBone's potential customers have 360s. There are 70+ million 360's out there, why would they spend $500 on another console to play a game they can play on their existing one?

A: They wouldn't.

Meanwhile, the real next gen Titanfall (the sequel, i.e. not cross-gen and so limited in mechanics and AI) will likely be on PS4 as well.

Also, why would XBoners beg for Planetside when it's Sony's game? As much chance of getting Uncharted lol

You know what I find hilarious about this...remember Mass Effect, an Xbox exclusive at the time and after the sequel PS3 owners got the first one eventually.

So what's going to happen once Titan Fall 2 comes out...have a guess

It's pretty obvious EA cooked up this deal with MS before the Xbox Ones reveal. I bet they will kick themselfs if the PS4 ends up selling more units then the Xbox One.

jb227  +   554d ago
It's still a bit early to say that Titanfall will be such a huge hit and sell so many millions. The hardcore multiplayer contingent will be sure bets, and it will more than likely sell a lot of lifetime units, but look at other new ips. The original Mass Effect wasn't anywhere near as big as the other two that I know of, and that's a sure trend, new ips rarely ever put up the numbers of their sequels. Plus this game has no true single player component, so it's focus is even more narrow. Sure it's a big hit with the more hardcore players and the game journalist, but it has to get the casual crowd to put up those kinds of numbers, and at this point it doesn't have it. Say what you will about it being developed by the same creators of one of the biggest franchises ever, but casuals don't care about that, they care about military shooters and Titanfall is a bit different from that. Microsoft will more than likely market the living hell out of the game, and if they can get those casuals to play then it will be a big hit, but it won't be as big as it's inevitable sequel. I personally couldn't care less about the game, it looks fun for what it is, but I'm not a multiplayer gamer, without a single player component it's never really interested me in the least. Hopefully it turns out great for those that like that kind of thing though

I just love the sony fanboy excuses...

"This game is crap"
All of a sudden the downplay of a game that has raving reviews is now crap and no one is excited about it. It went from; it will come to PS4 to who cares, that quick.

"I'll play it on PC"
Magically everyone has a gaming PC! They can't wait to play Warframe, Planetside 2, DCU for PS4, but strangely won't play them now for their high end PC's...how odd. Why is that?

"I'll wait for part 2"
Now the argument will be to wait three or four more years for the genre to become multiplat. Awesome.

In all seriousness, why are so many of you bitter about this news? Did you seriously not want it to be a Xbox One exclusive?
grimmweisse  +   554d ago
You mean like Mass Effect 1! Oh wait...regardless of being an exclusive at that time and for a long to Microsoft's platform, it didn't stop PS3 enjoying the 2nd and 3rd and eventually getting to experience the 1st.

So, it doesn't matter if the first Titanfall will be exclusive, if or when the second is released and across various platforms, then there is nothing stopping ps4 fans enjoying it just as much as Xbox or PC fans, regardless if millions of Xbox One consoles had been sold.

"It'll be like what gta is to the ps3."

I'm not even sure what you mean by this. Did you mean PS2?

Titanfall will be a good game, possibly great, but it won't have nearly the same impact on the industry as GTA3 did when it appeared on PS2 and it won't sell nearly as much as GTA5.

As others have said, the timing of this announcement is no coincidence. It's damage control to counter the BF4 comparisons. It's probably very effective damage control too, since TF is such an anticipated game. It doesn't make me want an XB1, but I'm sure it will make at least some people buy an XB1 that might not have. It won't effect launch numbers much though, if at all.

I must say it's a sad day for Xbox fanboys, you guys are trying your best to hold on to any kind of.......I don't know what you're holding on and hoping for, but it's not coming.

That goes for PS fanboys as well. The PS4 has proven it's the more powerful system, and if you listened to myself and others you knew that long ago, but obviously you just wanted visual confirmation. You have it now let it go, and move on.

The XBO is a solid console, the PS4 is a better console hardware-wise and pricing wise. Get what you console you want to play online and whose exclusives you enjoy the most, and end it there.

The fighting should end now, and let's game. Drop the ban hammer on these fanboys from both sides.


On a side note, there is no winning here, as going exclusive was not something Respawn wanted at all. The deal was all M$ and EA. Obviously M$ felt the sting going into the next gen as well as the pre-order numbers, and so they paid more to make Titanfall a 1 game exclusive.

On Vince Zampella's twitter, he tweets with someone:

Always MS exclusive at launch, great partner and focus is good for a startup. EA made a deal for the rest, we only found out recently =(

@VinceZampella Not to read into something. But I have a feeling your not 100% happy with this deal. Not to say Microsoft or EA hurt you...

@VinceZampella my point being is that I think you feel with this deal the longevity of TianFall 2 3 how ever many you make gets hurt on PS 4

@HideousGamer No plans for anything past 1 yet, but I like the way you think =D

Now some may take that as him talking about TitanFall 2 and 3, but the fact of the matter is that what William said is true. By not being on the PS4 along with the XBO, means that gamers are going to consider TitanFall as an XB game, and when it comes time to sell on the PS it's not going to do well as the XBO version, because gamers had no chance to play the original game on their console (which was the case for many games this gen). Unless the PlayStation 4 continues to outsell the XBO by the rumored 2:1 ratio then this games PS sales are going to suffer.

EA has to be wondering if this was a good decision, but I guess M$ paid them at least $180 million (expect at least 2 million in sales $120, and paid another $60 million to stop potential PlayStation sales) for exclusivity, but is it worth missing out on another possible 2 million on the PS4. M$ is said to have spent $1 billion dollars on games for the XBO. This is a dangerous and stupid game they're playing. Yes it may help you console early on, but what happens when publishers begin to EXPECT this type of behavior, and they start coming to the consoles with deals up front for fear of getting an inferior version. It's time for M$ to go, and focus on software and services for the industry.

But my point is just 1 point to be made. All this crap is just spin.
MarkusMcNugen  +   553d ago

You do all realize that having it on PC and the X1 is a win-win for Microsoft right? You have to use their OS to play it on PC. Why would a company that primarily makes it's profit from the PC market not release a great title on both platforms to make both products more attractive?

Seriously guys, use your brain. If a Sony fanboys play Titanfall on their PC, Microsoft still wins.

I hope all three of the big console companies the best with their products, but its just stupid to think Microsoft wouldnt release a game on their PC product to potentially attract more customers to their PC OS.

I didnt realize Amazon was the only place to pre-order games. Damn, what happened to Best Buy, Gamestop, and every other offline and online store. They must be pissed that they arent allowed to offer pre-orders for games.

Good thing for me I am a fanboy that has money. Guess i'll be buying an xbox now :/

Whatever. I'll wait for a price drop and the game to release....then I'll consider. I can't bring myself to buy that thing though (xbox one). I have a 360 and it collects dust. Gears got old for me, COD is stale, and the same every time. Plus on PS3 if I wanted it again for some dumb reason. Then MS capitolizes on EVERYTHING. Paying $50 a year to get advertised to and shafted at every turn with nothing free until they're forced to do it. Then Major Nelson. Ugh... the whole xbox "culture" needs to go away. They thumb their nose stating they're the best. No. They're the most expensive without reason. You get what you pay for doesn't apply because they are LITERALLY selling thin air with that $50 a year for just XBL.

@Lalanana: Do know what you are talking about? Because GTA didn't make PS3 a system seller. PS3 made PS3 a system seller with all of it's exclusives and alot of other things. GTA is on xbox too.

Speaking of GTA, does anyone think of that commercial in GTA V about the cloud when everyone mentions xbox one's cloud? I keep imagining these uneducated idiots like "It has the cloud though, we're all on the cloud!" yet have absolutely NO IDEA what the cloud is....

I guess money real speaks very loudly since third party developers always talk about no more exclusivity deals... until there is money on front. Must of third party developers refuse to put exclusive games (not content) on PlayStation, but they are totally great at putting exclusive games on Xbox. Even EA is doing it now with Titan Fall and Sunset Overdrive.

In short, this is prime example showing how Publishers only want money, and not quality anymore. They don't care anymore about having a great game, they only care how much noney they will make from it. They don't make a new IP to stablish a franchise and recognition over time. They have to have a great calculated profit before they even begin thinking about doing something new and different. And obviously, if there is someone that can give them millions before hand, they won't care, and become their intellectual slaves.

I don't see how this proves Titanfall isn't a quality game.

Respawn have been working on this game for quite a while. Like most devs, I assume they build a product with the intention of making it a quality title.

If publishers want to work out exclusivity deals, that their business. That doesn't reflect on the quality of the developer's efforts.

As far as I understand, EA is simply publishing, while the developers are exercising good freedom with the direction/vision of what they want the game to be.

man, get real. How many great franchises got their wings as Sony Exclusives before going multiplat?

GTA, Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Metal Gear Solid, Tomb Raider, just to name a few.,,

There's nothing wrong with starting out on one console. If anything, it allows the developer to focus. And doing so doesn't hamper innovation at all.

Are you going to complain that Deep Down isn't a multiplatform game? probably not...
Omegasyde  +   554d ago

Read the link I posted. It's not about the game being exclusive it's about the hypocrisy of EA.

First excuse was the "powa of the clowd" is needed for this game (yet comes out on Xbox360).



Bad Examples.

I get your point but you do realize this game is coming out on 360,Xbox One, and PC right? How is that focusing on one console?

Deep Down is a free to play to game vs Dead Rising 3 which are both published by Capcom and both console exclusive. I guess an even trade? I highly doubt Sony paid money for a free to play game.

Bayonetta 2 is published by NINTENDO.

what the fuck the guy never said that other sequels of titanfall will be on ps4.he only just said that other ips from respawn will be multiplatform and people will be able to play respawn games on ps4 but not titanfall and its sequels at least these devs are not owned by ms ,but this ip must have been byied by ms ,if not so in some time ms will buy the franchise for xbox exclusivity,so these silly news willl be considered false.

The second one will most likely will come with a Single Player portion to play.Im saying this because Respawn have told that one of the reason this game was exclusive and didnt have a SP campain is because the are at the begining of developing the studio and dont have resources like money and man power to devote to a campain portion at this time.So all in all if Microsoft stop trowing fat checks to EA the sequel wil come to the PS4 too.Even liking what i have been seeing of this game I certain will not pay $60,50£ or 69.99€ to play this game been it only SP thats for sure.Even Halo and Killzone have Single player .Ok i understand Respawn its a new studio and this is a new Ip but if its only MP it should cost half the price period.

mhunterjr  +   554d ago
if the first one sells well without a SP, i doubt the sequel will have it. The whole idea of a game needing both is what is senselessly driving up development costs.

The reason I say its senseless is because with typical online multiplayer games, developers spend so much time an money making SP experiences, yet players spend the lions share of their time in multiplayer.

on the flip side of that, you have developers trying to shoehorn MP into games that don't need it, and both the SP and MP end up suffering.

The industry would be better of if games could focus on what it is that makes them tick. There are some franchises that NEED their MP and their SP backstory (Halo, Killzone, etc), but there are others that only have them because its the status quo (Battlefield, COD etc)

some games should just focus on 1 or the other, and be priced accordingly

To be honest, we all know that pretty much the majority of people on N4G know of TitanFall, but that's just it, people here know of it! What about people outside of this site? If we're going by pre-orders numbers, they are not the amount that suggest that it's going to do gangbusters numbers! And before anyone mentions it's a ways off from release, this is a issue I am well aware off. This itself could pose a problem! Considering the heat Microsoft is taking, by them being surrounded by incompetence and all the damaging situation that they have found themselves embroiled in that after the initial sell through of Xbox1 after the Christmas holiday that everyone will see a sharp downturn in sales. It's already pretty clear that regardless of what people here on N4G may say or think, the Ps4 is the more popular of the two.

If the Xbox1 does see a downturn in sales after the Christmas season it's almost a given that rumbling and rumors, and speculations will start surfacing about a TitanFall port. My statement doesn't just pertain to TitanFall either, pretty much any 3rd party title that is exclusive to the Xbox1 will undergo the same process as far as rumors surfacing about the possibility of a PS4 version. The same thing would have happened to the WII U, had it not been due to the fact that as of now, the WII U is pretty much existing off of its 1st party support! This is why it's not getting the bigger 3rd party titles, because most are looking at it as a risk they are not willing to take!

To be fair the PS4 is not immune to this either! If God forbid, the PS4 suffers extensive damaging setbacks, before, during or, after release; they could also see a downturn in sales which would play out the exact same way it would with the others, where once thought to exclusive titles, someone would mysteriously find hidden code somewhere on the internet that supports the possibility of there being a Xbox1, WII U or PC version out there in the wild.

What I'm really trying to say is 3rd party exclusives are just as much dependent on how well they perform on the platform they are exclusive too, as too how much money changes hands to secure that exclusive! Many developers don't pay attention to the fact that a exclusive that is a life time exclusive is more expensive to them than a timed exclusive! And here is why; a lifetime exclusive that sells below what is paid for that exclusivity is basically restricted to what the developer receives as payment from the platform holder! But a timed exclusive; receives not only payment from the platform holder that owns timed exclusivity, but a profit from every platform that the title is released on after the exclusivity deal has expired, even if the title underperformed on the platform it was initially exclusive to.

You're kidding me right? You really think N4G is the reason TitanFall won over 75 awards and the game is still under development? Every gamer has heard of TitanFall. Like seriously, there was 48,000 attendees at E3 alone. Not counting the gamers worldwide who was watching E3 events online.

Second, you bring up pre order numbers, as if that's the determining factor for game sales. Everyone doesn't pre order games you know? I for one will have 2 PS4 game at launch, and 7 XB1 games at launch. If you don't believe me my PSN ID and Gamertag keeps a history of my activity.

Last, you know what else is interesting? I didn't pre order Infamous nor have I pre ordered TitanFall yet. Although, I'm still purchasing both ip's at launch. So understand that you can't determine the success of a franchise based on current pre order numbers.

but i guess MS wrote a big enough check that EA accepted and Respawn accepted as well. As much as respawn wants to say EA signed the deal they have 110% control over their IP since they are under EA's partners program

if they didn't want to be exclusive to xbox/MS they never had to unless they saw the cehck and thought oh well

Patcher who is wrong more often than right lol, said that for titanfall to be lifetime exclusive MS has to cover the potential sales of the game on ps3/ps4. so just imagine the check MS had to write

yet people can still play it without buying an xbox
HugoDrax  +   553d ago
"yet people can still play it without buying an xbox"
"Still buying ps4 and playing it on PC"

Yet people can't still play it without supporting Microsoft (windows) & EA (Origin). So enjoy picking up TitanFall on X360 (Microsoft), or enjoy playing TitanFall on PC (Microsoft & EA origin). When it's all said and done, if you want to play this game you will support Microsoft. I for one hope every gamer gets to experience every game they're interested in. Just kill the disappointing comments Sony fanboys. You guys/girls sound butthurt over this news.

PS: Let's not forget Origin allows refunds, and steam doesn't. Also MS mentioned they're working on refund/trade in on digital downloaded games as well. Looks like a partnership brewing between MS/EA. Hate it, or Love it! the underdog MS is on top by securing this franchise.

the fact is for those people who arent getting a x1 and dont have a 360 but will be getting a ps4. sure they cant play the game on their console but they can still play the game on another platform i.e. PC. Who cares who makes the OS....you could play this on mac...

Titanfall only on XBO and PC.

Hmmm. I have a PC with i5 3570 and amd7950.
So that means I will be able to play it at near max settings.
Should I get it on PC?
No doubt the PC version will be best.

However, if I get the XBO version I will be able to play it on my 55" TV while reclining in my comfortable lounge... hmmm

I guess if it's anything like BF4, I think I'll go with the xbo. A few extra pixels won't be as fun as the big TV and the recliner. Also looking forward to the ability to issue voice commands with the xbo.

One thing's for sure. PS4 owners without a good PC graphics card and CPU are surely missing out!

That means more graphics cards will be sold.. or, dare I say it, perhaps more XBOs.

I donæt think there is any doubt when both the publisher and the developer says it is *lifetime* exclusive.

Better wait for Titanfalls 2, but it might go the way of Gears of War exclusivity.

Seriously supporting X1 seems like petty cash to micro, the company's overall financial is earning big wads of cash from their Azure server network being licensed to tons of business, but yet letting any 3rd party dev to use it for free on X1. The OS plus other software of course are still raking in cash. Micro almost wastes money on making full real life detailed armor with gold plating for Ryse, its not even necessary but they have money so why not. All signs point to Microsoft having substantial cash revenue, maybe not the hot brand like Apple but still pretty damm well off.

Must be above that, MS must make a deal that pays of for EA. EA isn`t doing that great and it`s likely they would make more than 100 million profit if they would sell it on PS3 and PS4 as well. So MS must have paid an amount that would exceed the profit from sales for PS3 and PS4. Let`s say an optimistic estimate would be 10 million units for PS3 and PS4 combined at 60 bucks for 600 million (not including future DLC). Taking away the cut for Sony and retailers that would be around the 300 million profit region.

One can't help but to wonder how will this hurt Respawn in the future!? Microsoft is looking at this as a short term stance on TitanFall hopefully spurring sales, but the question remains what happens if it doesn't perform up to expectations? Will Microsoft leave them with their a$zes hanging out, like they have with pretty much any exclusive deal they've made!? People know this to be true because all you have to do is look at is the fact that most have left running with their tails between their legs! It's a reasoning behind Bungie going multi platform. Most companies leaving Microsoft have nothing but horror stories to tell, most indies tell of indecent behavior

On top of everything there is no guarantee that PS4 owner are going to welcome them even if they do decide to bring the second iteration of TitanFall to the PS4, because they will feel that money would be the only reason behind them doing so, and not the fact that they have been vocal as well as the Xbox and PC fanbase in stating that they also want it on the PS4.

And to those above saying people are crying a river, or it still not coming to the PS4! That may be true, but it's sad that that is the only piece of good news that you've had in a while! So it's only natural that you would want to cherish it.

Titanfall will not be released on a PlayStation console, says EA, ruling out any notion of it being merely a timed exclusive for Xbox.

"There are tactical opportunities from time to time on a title or on a service component that we do enter into a relationship with one or two of the first parties on that particular opportunity and we'll execute on it," said Gibeau.

AMD 7870 ($175): http://www.newegg.com/Produ...

PC Case ($45): http://www.amazon.com/Coole...

CPU ($115): http://www.amazon.com/AMD-F...

Motherboard ($41): http://www.newegg.com/Produ...

Windows 8 ($74): http://www.lookoutdeals.com...

Harddrive 500gb ($36): http://www.amazon.com/Seaga...

RAM ($34): http://www.amazon.com/PNY-O...

PSU ($40): http://www.amazon.com/Coole...

Mouse/Keyboard($15): http://www.amazon.com/Amazo...

Here's an 8core CPU you can get for ($120W coupon) http://www.newegg.com/Produ...

Total comes out to ($580) or ($585 with the 8core) and with the AMD 7870 you get 2 free games! The CPU Case will snuggle under any cabinet like any console. This might be $80 dollars more then the XBOX One but remember you have to buy the games and pay for online and update/install your games just like a PC, it's going to come out about the same or more especially with bundles!

Here is almost the same setup and this guy gets between 40-60 fps ultra at 1080p!

My 9 year old son was asking me about building/ making our own computer, but I've never built one before. I was thinking about making that a project for him and I to do together. Is this really all you need? How hard is it to put together after you get all of these items?
johny5  +   554d ago
Honestly it's not all that hard or complicated. Building a computer hasn't really changed that much in the last 20 years and there's many how to videos that make the setup very easy.

The building process will bond you with your son like building a car together, it will bring you two closer while making him happy and you happy.

It's ridiculous how easy it is. The only part where you need to be careful is putting on the CPU cooler with thermal paste, but even that is straightforward. The challenging part is finding a good way to hide your wires so that the airflow isn't restricted. If you buy a better case they usually have space to hide the wires easily.
A first timer can probably put an entire computer together in less than an hour. Just remember static is your enemy. So put it together in an open area. Maybe get an anti static mat or bracelet.
The most time consuming part is setting up the OS and software.

Hey I was replying in another article but you were marked as off topic before I could post so here it is:

Some prices you stated are lower than the ones you linked. This Windows 8 version is just an upgrade OS. A proper Windows 8 pro full version costs at least double the price you mentioned. You'll have to take the RAM twice to get the specs from the vid. And you didn't include a Blu-Ray drive (+$50) so even with that crappy keyboard and mouse we're talking about $765 (shipping cost included). And keep in mind that you have to assemble and set up the whole thing before you can use it.

Now let's talk about the video: Yes he plays in 1080p but we're talking about BF3 multiplayer. And even there the framerate is highly inconsistent and drops below 30 at some points (could be because of thr recording to be fair).

I'm really not convinced by that build tbh. I doubt that it could run BF4 singleplayer in 1600x900 at a similar framerate as the PS4 with the same visual fidelity.

On my friends computer it did better! He's build ran stable between 50-60fps without Msaa or using Fxaa "like the PS4" at 1080p Ultra settings.

The guys build would run better if he toned down AA like the consoles or ran it at high settings with 2xAA which is still at a higher resolution then the consoles.

You really only need 4gb of ram for this most games as the video card has 2GB of video memory.

By the way I put this list together really quickly so there better prices online.
medziarz  +   553d ago
yea, but u need two of those RAMs and that HDD price is some fluke! so is that motherboard - i don't know about its quality but from my experience a decent MB should cost about $100; HDDs are usually close to $100.

none of those are flukes so I don't know where your getting that?

The HDD is the real deal and so is the motherboard! Buy it or check it out and prove me wrong because it's legit!

With all the hype surrounding that game I can imagine that a lifetime exclusivity deal wasn't cheap.
jay2  +   554d ago
Some comments on here are a bit stupid, I'm sure most people who want to play Titalfill own a PC..........In any case, how would newbies get the story line, Sony should jump in and pay for an exclusive IP.
AceBlazer13  +   554d ago
microsoft could've probably produced their own exclusive for the price they're paying to keep this game. watevs no skin off my ass.

i can imagine EA laughing to the bank with that cheque.

FrigidDARKNESS  +   554d ago
Hey guys isn't this wonderful that Titanfalls now exclusive to Microsoft. I saw this coming when Respawn wanted to remain an independent developer not being under EA.
XabiDaChosenOne  +   554d ago
I'll be to busy play superior multiplats and exclusives to care, have fun on the deserted Xbone platform Respawn.
XboxFun  +   554d ago
And we'll be too busy playing exclusives that people are actually excited for and multiplats that have no real visible difference and plays exactly the same.

Thanks Respawn!
DigitalRaptor  +   554d ago
Well, dem pre-order figures are pretty dismal if you want to go for an inspection. If that's what you count as "exclusives that people are actually excited for", then...

And you're in for a rude awakening in regards to multiplat differences, especially if you have a decent 1080p set for gaming. A 50% increase in resolution is not insignificant, and only a delusional idiot would suggest it is. either that or you haven't been paying attention at all in recent days.

So of course,,, there's no real visible difference, because the Xbone isn't significantly weaker hardware and hasn't been born with any kind of esRAM bottlenecking. /s

So it's official, we won't be seeing you in anymore Titanfall articles? What with your superior multi plats and exclusives, you have no reasons to care about this game correct?

Why even come here anyway? I find it so stupid when people comment on games they claim to not care about. I don't care much for JRPG's but you won't see me going into No No Kuni discussions talking about how I don't care because X WRPG is better.

The fact that you have more agrees than disagrees is a testament on how stupidly lopsided N4G is.

The fact that pointing this out could earn me a ban is further proof.

I'm sorry my comment hurt your feelings :-(

We don't know if this game is going to be good. So as of right now im not even worried.

Worried about what exactly? If it is was good as everybody that plays it says then what? What is it that you'll need to worry about? Quit trying to dull people's enthusiasm simply to support some delusion that only PS4 exclusives are worthy of praise.

Wow this site is a disease.
DevilishSix  +   554d ago
No biggy really, if you are a PS4 only owner, Destiny comes out the month after Titanfall in April, that is where I will be spending my time. I have a 360 if I want to play it but honestly I haven't seen anything exciting about it. that is just me though and to each their own, but I diffently wouldn't spend $500 to play it on X1 when I already have a 360 that will run the game with the same gameplay as on X1.

If they really wanted to push X1 sales it should be exclusive to that platform, but it being on 360 or PC, most will have the ability to play it without spending $500, so I don't get the point of this kind of exclusivity.

Blablablabla, all what I read is crying person there.

Can Microsoft have something right?

Let it go, Titan Fall will be a console seller and will be fun as hell!
Destiny will be nice but I don't see it with the same eyes as Titan fall, they are different fun for me
Evil_Abed  +   554d ago
Here's the point, wanna play titanfall on current gen console? Xbox 360 - Microsoft
Next gen? Xbox One - Microsoft
PC? Windows 8 - Microsoft.
See the pattern yet? To play the most awarded game at this year's E3, you have to own a Microsoft platform.

I just made sense for you. Now pay me.

PS, Destiny is great but TitanFall AND Destiny is preferable to most.

I might pick titanfall up on PC - if not ill wait for Titanfall 2 (its a yearly release) to come out on ps4. Its just a shooter - im not really fazed too much.

I wont be picking up a next gen system for a year or so anyway.

Microsoft, microsoft, microsoft the repliers sound like company paid cheering section. I don't care its microsoft. My whole point is that $500 doesn't have to be spent to play this game and thus is not a system seller like it would be if it was only on X1.
