Whatever Microsoft paid for Titanfall exclusivity, it was worth it

Anyone who is skeptical about the power of Titanfall to move hardware has not played the game.

It’s recently been announced that Microsoft has locked down the game as an exclusive. Not a timed exclusive, but an all-the-way exclusive. This game belongs to the Xbox One, Xbox 360, and the PC, forever and ever. (Culture, PC, TitanFall, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I agree,even though dislike the fact of 3rd party titles being exclusive..EA must have really needed the funds and MS came running to them with the check book wide open..These type of events are reasons why gamers should try to own multi consoles.

Yep the way it's advertised casuals will never know that it's on X360 & PC. This will defiantly sell systems for them. The way EA handled the situation was real shitty however.

I have to agree here with you. Titanfall being on MS camp is a big win for them.. I can see it selling systems for them

Well we know exclusives are a *must from a company perspective or there would be no incentive to choose a particular platform over the other.

Options are:
Make your own studio from ground up=hardest way because the best talent is hard to find.

Buy exclusives from the best talent available= its expensive short term but longterm you dont pay them for years.

Mix both strategies.

Just a question. Why is buying 1 exclusive vs owning/buying a entire 3rd party studio worst for gamers in general?

Seems to me the strategy of paying for a particular IP vs buying the studio is overall better because those studios still can spread their talent around for future IP and even exclusives to other platforms while remaining independent and most importantly hungry vs just on a payroll collecting a check.

TitanFall will almost certainly sell the most units on Xbox 360, which will invalidate your point completely. It has the largest install base between 360 and Xbone (well whatever it will have, it won't be 80 million), so it's very likely to sell more on the 360. This is why it was stupid to pay for exclusivity because, IT'S NOT EXCLUSIVE. Microsoft exclusive means they get royalties from 360 and Xbone, and may push some Xbones, but anyone that buys it on PC will not be paying any royalties to MS, because they don't get royalties from those sales.

If it was Xbone exclusive completely, then it would really push console sales, but if I was a betting man, I'd bet that TitanFall sells most of its copies on 360.

/pach hat.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   170d ago | Well said
Whats amazing to me was the complete tone change. Remember that rumor that popped up several months back with a PS3 console in one the guys's office?

http://n4g.com/news/1340765...

It wasn't really the rumor itself that's unbelievable, its how excited fanboys were to see this and they really, REALLY wanted to play Titanfall so bad. Even the rumor meter is almost all the way up.

Now that's not the case their tone turned sour grapes.

"I'll buy it for 360"

"Titanfall 2 will come to PS4"

Which could happen actually.

I'll buy it for my super PC, I don't need an Xbone"

"The game doesn't look that great"

http://n4g.com/news/1383288...

Now realistically we have to wait and see if MS negotiates further with EA.

Will MS Mass Effect it, or Gears Of War it? Is the question.

Kleptic  +   170d ago
Steve, is that true? No fanboy bs here, serious question...I'm going to be all over Titanfall next spring unless i'm still hopelessly hooked on BF4...

but...has all the footage so far been for xbox one?...Some of it, honestly, looks like 360 footage...as nothing i've seen so far looks to be all that demanding on hardware...

again, not a criticism...cod 4 was the last cod i got into...and, at the time, i thought its balance of pacing and mechanics was about as good as multiplayer can get...I trust these devs to make one hell of an awesome multiplayer game, and will be buying it day 1...I was just assuming that at least some of whats been shown was on a 360, or at least a PC targeting the 360 'version'...i mean some particle effects were blatantly placeholder, as in lifted right out of some existing 360 assets they had for the engine...

and even if some of that was 360 footage, and it 'holds back' the pc and xbox one versions...not worried, this game is going to play awesome regardless of what it looks like...

and Angelic...I don't think its the same thing as ME or Gears...Gears has always been published by MS, and thats the important aspect...Regardless of what Cliffy used to rant about in the past; its obvious now that MS owns most of, or even all of, the gears franchise as an IP...ME was completely different, MS contracted to publish ME1, but apparently didn't buy up any rights to the game from Biwoare...Bioware kept the IP rights, but was bought up by EA...and that is how MS lost exclusivity to ME...Respawn has said numerous times they are independent, and fully own Titanfall (after all, this is what caused the whole fall out with activision to begin with)...but MS and EA have some deal going on related to publishing this game...which probably got Respawn PILES of start up money...my guess is, millions went to respawn...and MS blanketed marketing costs for EA...allowing EA to effectively rake in money without having any overhead on the title...catch is, limited platforms...

I know I'm in the minority, but I have yet to be impressed with Titanfall. So far, it seems like a lot of hype.

Some are calling it the "first true next-gen game", but if it's the first true next-gen game, how come 360 can run it?

Also... mechs and wall running are cool, but other than that, I don't see what's so special about it. Personally, I'm more impressed with Destiny and The Division for innovative multi-player.

The amount of money Microsoft is backing this game with must be pretty damn high if it's not coming to Sony platforms, AND it's already plastered all over the place with Ads.

Was it worth it???? We'll see.
b163o1  +   170d ago
I don't understand, didn't the creators of COD leave the brand cause of MS wanting them to produce it year after year? What do they think MS is gonna do to this IP? I just don't understand how they can put themselves thru what they walked away from again. It's like an abused spouse thinking thing are gonna change...
knockknockannefrank  +   170d ago
1) titanfall exclusive helps make x1 more appealing a few months after launch
2) titalfall is exclusive but titanfall 2 is not. but at that point MS will have established that the general titanfall crown is on xbox, so if titanfall does well then the sequel will already be popularly associated with the xbox brand

Majority of people will just buy it for PC. That was their problem, putting it on to PC as well. It's probably the best system seller they have, the only game that looks appealing (in my opinion) and would be one of the only reasons I'd of bought a XBOne.
rainslacker  +   170d ago
I know some people will buy a system for one or two games they want, but is TitanFall really that game?

It's coming to PC, and arguably, the PC version will be better so long as the person has a mid-range PC. Couch comfort aside, the argument that it is MS exclusive because it's only on Microsoft platforms falls flat, because I would wager 99% of PS and Nintendo owners also have Windows on their PC.

I've noticed the PC being included as a MS platform as a rather new advent in the console wars. I don't think it's really pertinent to console discussion, and generally anything on PC can be played by anyone regardless of console preference, so not really a system seller.

Edit
Note the wording of this qoute, highlighted for everyone's convienance.

:“In the case of Titanfall, it's a brand new [intellectual property], and it's exclusive only, THROUGH THE LIFE OF THE TITLE, for Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC,”:"

What this means is that the first titanfall game(this specific one) will be Xbox exclusive(and PC I guess).

Doesn't mean they can't make a TF2, TF:Black Mech, TF:Robo-DOG, TF1:Special Edition, etc and sell it on the PS4 or even the Wii U. Money will win out in the end, and EA won't ignore a large enough install base. History makes that readily apparent.

You dont make any sense. How is it not gonna pay off. Regardless if it sells more on Xbox 360 its still a win win situation for MS/EA.

You can experience it by doing the following.

1) go to a friends house that has it.

2) enter a drawing and win X1 and get Titanfall.

3) just go buy X1 with Titanfall.

However, you can't say you won't ever be able to experience it. I highly recommend people in this generation to put their differences a side and be open on getting both consoles next gen. Either early on or later down the road you shouldn't allow yourself to miss out on anything next gen.
C-Thunder  +   170d ago
Just wait for the sequel or, if ea's really not hitting targets, the goty edition that'll assuredly be on both systems.
rainslacker  +   170d ago
Mass Effect 1 and 2 were both 360 exclusives. ME1 took a while to come out, but 2 came out with a deluxe edition for PS3. "Through the life of the title" means that the initial installment for the game won't make it's way over unless EA buys the rights back to do so. But doesn't mean there won't be titanfall games on the Playstation consolses. EA won't ignore a large install base, and no doubt they have seen the pre-order numbers for things like Killzone to be drooling at a chance to profit off PS gamers.

I don't personally care for Titanfall, buy buying exclusivity really sucks from any side of the fence. Games are made to be enjoyed, and the less obstacles companies put in the way of getting games into the gamers hands, the better.
Kurt Russell  +   170d ago

You guys hit the nail on the head, where in the world would I find the time to play two systems when I barely have time for one. I can drop $400 for a system, pick up a controller, PS+, some games but to buy two systems and pay for two online services, you'd better be spending some quality QT with both. Throwing in a PC means you're obviously locked in a minimum security prison with tons of time on your hands or you're Mitt Romney's grandson.
hankmoody  +   170d ago

DARK WITNESS  +   170d ago
I don't know if I would say EA was desperate for money and all that.

I do think that now xbox has had a change in leadership, maybe their approach towards their games library has changed.

They must know by now that a lot of their fans or old fans don't put much faith in their word when they say "it's exclusive". They must be starting to see that saying "exclusive to xbox" is no longer the selling point it use to be because people know it's only a matter of time till it's not exclusive any more.

it's MS's own doing in the first place, but maybe now they will finally start to back up their word and "only on xbox" will actually start to hold some meaning again.

When this gen started I really didn't like the ps3 for anything, but I bought it anyway just for MGS4. Even though a lot of fans at the time were saying ohhh it's going to come to 360, well it never did.

I don't mind 3rd parties doing exclusives. I don't mind buying both systems for good exclusives. I don't like it when something is said to be exclusive and then 6 months later it's out on the other system.
Baka-akaB  +   170d ago
Yeah it's annoying even if you plan on getting all system , or wont change consoles choices anyway . It shows how untrustworthy a publisher is .

Dlacy13g  +   170d ago
On the heels of the news regarding EA's big financial loses during the investor call it seems pretty clear EA were open to the notion of getting paid to keep this exclusive.

Respawn has said down the road they will explore the PS4 with most likely Titanfall 2 but the first game will be 100% Xbox One and PC focus for Respawn proper and a 2nd un-named studio handling the Xbox 360 port. What this means for Titanfall is Respawn can truly just focus on the Xbox One and PC versions now and make the game great.

It also means when it comes to PlayStation 4 there's a chance gamers might not be overwhelming accepting of it because they were blocked from experiencing the first game.

It may have been good for EA for their annuals this year, but it's bad business to alienate literally a 100% potential sales increase, as well as bringing an uncertain future for a franchise you plan on rotating.

When titanfall 2 comes out and if sales suffer on the PlayStation version because Sony gets their own EA is going to suffer because now M$ has them in their pockets and don't have to pay anything to EA.

This deal only benefits M$ and I'm sure they paid around $200 million to make it exclusive. EA better hope things work out for them, and M$ needs to stop this because it can become a dangerous game in the industry where developers being threatening consoles with inferior ports without money up front for timed exclusive content. And that's going to hurt M$ most of all since they rely on 3rd parties the most.
rainslacker  +   170d ago
I kind of agree with ABizzel here. We don't know the details of the exclusivity deal, but for a new franchise such as this, which is obviously meant to build a reputation to compete against the likes of Call of Duty, it doesn't make much sense to alienate half of the console owners out there. In the mean time when the PS3/4 owners who may want this game are waiting on it, it leaves the doors open for Activision, Ubisoft, or Sony itself to create the next big franchise that will trump this one. In fact, any Sony 1st party exclusive can easily come in and steal any kind of future momentum from Titanfall's popularity on the system. You know how fervent Sony fans can be with their exclusives at times.

Titanfall has a lot going for it to make it a good contender against COD, but it will never reach that point if it is only on one console. It will probably sell well, but it won't be the biggest seller it could be.

In the end though, I really expect to see Titanfall games on the PS4 in the future. Just not this particular game released as just Titanfall.
BG11579  +   170d ago
The situation is worst than I thought.

The exclusivity deal is between MS and EA. EA has the wright to distribute the game, but it's Respawn that is making the game. So all the money paid for the exclusivity is going to EA, not Respawn. Respawn is only getting from the sales of the game. Respawn was willing to develop the game for PS4, but EA stopped them...

The guys making the game will receive less money than expected because of this exclusivity deal. This will definitely not bound well with Respawn.
Worse, if EA has the rights of the "Titanfall", EA will have the right to decide in which machine the sequel will actually come out.
This deal between MS and EA, shows no respect to the team producing the game. They are actually jeopardizing the sequel of the game altogether.

This kind of endeavor is definitely giving me a good reason to boycott every game coming out from EA and MS.
With scumbag moves like this, no wonder developers don't like MS and turn to the competition.

This is the very reason you buy both consoles. I used to only support one console at a time, but got tired of missing out on the exclusives that the other console had. No more. First I bought the Xbox 360 then two years later I purchased the PS3. Haven't missed an exclusive yet.

November 15 is an important day for me cause I'll be there for the PS4.
November 22 is equally important cause I'll be there for the Xbox One.

you don't have to buy a xbox one to play titanfall, also stop blaming EA. Respawn is an independent developer working under EA's partners program, meaning they not only own but control whatever they do with the IP

sp yes MS came to EA and offered a big check but respawn could have said no and nothing EA could do about it

also been seeing some comments on how MS should buy respwan, that's not happening, Respawn got out of a big publisher in activision and got treated unfairly so i doubt they will sell their studio to anyone anytime soon

EA got paid for what titanfall would have sold on ps3,ps4 so imagine the amount. MS touted that they are spending over a billion on new games but i would love to know how much of that went to EA for titanfall and exclusive DLC for BF4 along with Fifa14

Anyone complaining probably doesn't have much to look forward too. Even though I'm only getting PS4 and Wii U I'll have plenty of games to play this one title shouldn't cripple ones gaming at all. If it does then they are a sad individual.

I really don't envy Xbox One users because I'll have plenty of games to play on the PS4. And if I don't I have my backlog of PlayStation plus games on my PS3 to play.

I'm glad that they have Titanfall and I hope they enjoy it.

Whatever. I plan on getting a X1 in a year or two but defiantly a PS4 at launch.

Titanfall would be the only game that would really compel me to have a X1. Luckily I have a pretty nice gaming PC.

It's kind of funny. I almost feel like I'm giving M$ the middle finger at their last line of defense to sell systems.

Gamers have had nothing but the same ever escalating and stupid spoilsport argument since the Dreamcast and the internet. Its why things have gotten to such a point that the slightest question or voiced doubt about a game or game system gets attacked from several directions. Why even games like Colonial Marines has defenders.

I mean it shouldn't matter that I'm not interested in playing Titianfall but have a few questions about its universe. Like why anti-mech or infantry weapons have no effect on civilian buildings. The same question people have asked about KZ or COD.

I'm not too surprised about FFXV since XIII was on the 360, but KH? That game's gonna sell terribly on the XBO. It doesn't matter to me, as I'm getting KH3 and FFXV on the PS4 anyway.
I guess Sony didn't lock them down because of they're just not as rich as MS.
But anyway, Titanfall sequels are confirmed to be going to PS4 and who knows?
Maybe FFXV-2 will be a PS4 exclusive.
OT: I guess it is. MS has very deep pockets, so they'll be fine.
And Mrcastle, yes, FFXV is going to XBO and PS4 only.
@j-blaze, quit trolling.
ND, Killzone and GoW are first party exclusives. Sony's not paying anyone for those.
As for the third party games you mentioned, Sony helps out with development. They don't through around money aimlessly.
Both FFXV and KH3 will sell terribly on the XBO anyway, so why are you even bothering? If they were exclusive to PS4, you'd just say that the suck.
@CrossingEdeen, if the sales figures of Tales Of Vesperia and FFXIII aren't an indication of how badly JRPGs do on Xbox (Cartoony ones like KH especially) then I don't know what is.
Vesperia did so badly on the 360 that Namco had to make a PS3 version. Seeing KH3 on the Xbox is just wrong.

dude hope you know ms has invested millions into their studios this time around..theyve been on a hiring spree for the past few years and investing in new ips.the 15 exclusives (quantum break,fable,halo5,sunset overdrive,blacktusks game,forza5,dead rising3,titanfall etc)announced at ms e3. conference will all be out within a year of the xbx one's launch and that will just be the beginning..that aside every ms 1st party studio has been beefed up with new talent and more teams.rare, lionhead,343,mgs osaka,soho,victoria etc .all have unannounced titles in development by multiple teams within each of these studios..343 ,mgs osaka and rare have at least 3 unannounced titles each..and then ms has hinted at a number of exclusives been developed at japan from their 1st party studio(mgs osaka) and various japanese devs patnering with them...and then you got epic,playground, remedy,ruffian studios, crytek(looking forward to developing a ryse sequel already)..etc.finally,its safe to say that titanfall wont be the only 3rd party exclusive ms will lock down.expect to hear more exclusive titles in development from 3rd party devs...saying ms is not investing in games this time is plain wrong.they are investing in every aspect i.e dlc, 1st part titles,new ips, 2nd party exclusives and 3rd party exclusives i.e titanfall.....google it up and get your facts right..ms seems to have taken note of its mistakes with the xbx 360..they will amaze so many people this time around...ms knows we want games and so far they are doing good.

You make a good point but it's still shouldn't alter the fact that Microsoft should not be lining the pockets of third part devs and neither should Sony. What about the studios that have closed down? The people who have lost jobs? there are always victims, should the be sacrificed for EA?
It's good to see Microsoft investing in their own studios but will it last? You say they have learnt but in May you would not have thought so, the gamer was second, the 'console' was not geared towards the gamer, that's a mixed message either way you look at it.
Will you also stop with this investing in Titanfall talk, the game has been in development for ages without Microsoft's help, even Respawn had no idea of the long term exclusivity, (it is in an article on C&VG). Is it right that a studio can create a game they want to share with the world and not be involved in who gets to play it? hint..the answer to that is no.

Plus please don't mix up investing in exclusives and buying exclusives, it's a completely different practice.

At above
er no, but lets face it, it will be one big stash of cash to keep EA on one platform. If the rich get richer somewhere along the line someone loses out.

You can only make a judgement on the future from the past and lets face it, the 360 over the last couple of years has not been blessed with exclusives.
Before you all shout 'Sony fanboy', my 360 has gathered more dust thanks to Microsoft's lack of exclusives and asking me to pay for live to play 3rd party games online became unacceptable. These comments are from past disappointments.

I want exclusives like any one but 3rd party should stay 3rd party, if the devs want to keep it to one platform that's up to them due to a gaming reason, but throwing money around behind their back to make them exclusive will only cause in house issues in the future.

Lets just confirm this, I'm against money being thrown at EA, their bad enough as it is and this won't improve their standing.

I have been expressing this since E3. If you are fortunate enough to own both consoles, let alone at launch go for it. As a gamer, the only way you will get to experience great gaming is to play great games, not play consoles. I'm actually disappointed at how some gamers have been behaving the past 8 months. Stating rumors as facts, disregarding playing a great game because it's not on their console of choice. I just don't understand it! See you guys on Shadow Fall on the 15th, and Ryse/KI/DR3/Forza etc on the 22nd. Let's not forget Mario kart and Smash bros Wii u :-). I'll never get tired of playing Mario Kart, everrrrrrrr.......
ninjagoat  +   170d ago
I'd be more interested if the graphics matched he hype. Once again this game is costing next gen price's and for me it does not warrant that.

I'll be picking up an x1 as well but this is not a title I'm interested in. Exclusives are meant to push the systems like Uncharted last of us etc. I don't care if this is the first wave off titles etc. These titles are meant to show off next gen hardware and for me that means blow my face off.

This game does none off that. I can't say i does not look fun it does. But Graphic ways there's nothing that says this game would not run like this on xbox360 if it doesn't its been un fairly gimped.

I actually think its a disservice to their fans. Everyone knows Microsoft wrote a pretty big check so it wouldn't come to the ps4. The amount of money they would have to pay would have to off set the ps4 sales would be enough to make another game. Titanfall was coming anyway. So instead of getting 2 games a great multiplate and an exclusive they actually own the rights to. They get 1 exclusive. The only reason a game should be a 3rd party exclusive is if the market isn't on that console.
grassyknoll  +   170d ago
I don't think it was worth the money, to stop other console owners playing the game, Microsoft could have invested that money in new projects or a new studio/s. That's not giving to the industry, just taking away from others.

"I don't think it was worth the money, to stop other console owners playing the game, Microsoft could have invested that money in new projects or a new studio/s. That's not giving to the industry, just taking away from others."

So because you believed the hype that it was a timed exclusive, now you don't think it was worth the money? Do I have to remind you how much Microsoft is worth? Check my comment history, I posted financials a week ago and got labeled as a troll. I don't get you fanboys lol, it's okay for Sony to buy exclusivity (ACIV/Watchdogs Timed exclusive content). Yet when Microsoft buys exclusive content, or games it's an issue.

Furthermore, Sony fanboys despise Microsoft to the point a timed exclusive rumor was labeled as FACT! With no evidence to back that claim. Even IGN's Greg Miller (Sony Fanboy) decided to post an article on "WHY TITANFALL WILL COME TO PS4."

http://www.ign.com/videos/2...

I said it months ago, MONEY TALKS! especially in America. Who has plenty of money? Microsoft does and once this game won over 80 awards, I knew it was only a matter of time before MS locked it down. This will be their new Gears of War franchise. Rather you play on X360, XB1, or PC you're still supporting EA/Microsoft. This game will be on Origin, not steam.

You type like an insane person. It's only videogames! Microsoft are a very cash rich company, but not gonna spend unlimited amounts of money just on gaming (either is Sony / Nintendo or Valve). Not once did I say exclusive DLC is good, it's rubbish & a waste of time.

Personally, I would have prefered Microsoft spent that money are smaller more diverse games than one big one that already exists. I know this might be hard for you to gauge, but being critical of a company, doesn't make you a fanatic of the other. Like games, not the machines they're on.

He said he had just found out that TitanFall was going to be an exclusive only to Microsofts Platform. Yet he's the CEO Respawn owns the IP.

Gone were the mass effects and fables. Now they have spark and titanfall to add to their lineup... And those are pretty strong.

The amount of hurt feelings in all these Titanfall articles is beyond amazing.

All of a sudden EA is loosing money by keeping this game an exclusive to Xbox One.

I guess Capcom is loosing money too with Deep Down, how about all those other great exclusives to one console?

Nope, for some unknown reason only Respawn/EA will lose money. With this logic that means every exclusive will lose money so why even have exclusives then?

The best part is how the sony fanboys claims that every exclusive that comes to MS from a 3rd party must mean that 3rd party developer is desperate for money.

Even though Sony has paid for exclusive DLC for their games from Ubi and Bungie, let's not forget those JRPG's and Bayonetta 2 from Nintendo...I guess they were desperate too and Sony/Nintendo came running with their checkbooks. Right?

I wonder if we would see those comments in any of those related articles or would we see "Good job Sony" followed by high fives?

Nope, companies are only desperate for money when they make a game for Xbox One.

If you guys are really that desperate for some great Xbox One exclusives like Titanfall you can sign this petition from the Sony fanboys:

Dr3 is a good game but not great and ryse lol, lm a devil may cry nut so choppy ass animation that can't even hold 30fps doesn't interest me.

Titanfall looks really good tho but with so many good fps coming out M$ might have made the wrong call.

Ea&m$ Better hope them mechs sell it.

Ill get it for 360 that's where it will sell the most.
