Titanfall PS4 Port Was Considered, Performance Currently Lacking at 720p, Insider Reveals

Industry insider Ahsan Rasheed, known on NeoGaf as Thuway and normally considered quite reliable with his reveals due to the fact that he’s been pretty much always right with previous rumors, had a couple interesting tidbits of information to share today about the upcoming Titanfall by Respawn Entertainment. (PC, PS4, TitanFall, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Hard to tell

Hmmmmm.... both things we have known about for a while now. We know EA made the full exclusives MS platform deal behind respawn's back as if Vince only found basically when we found out meaning CBOAT rumour about it being timed was true.

It's interesting to hear if true that they are still having optimization issues from the last rumour. DF;s faceoff will sure be interesting in march ;)

Yup... And I believe Peter Moore being a top dog at the worlds biggest game publisher isn't a coincidence, Just look at all of the EA/Microsoft exclusive stuff. Smh

But no matter how much money Microsoft gave EA for Titanfall exclusivity, It won't match the money they've lost for not publishing the game on the leading console. Asians didn't buy other Xboxs before, I doubt they will now and seeing they're huge love for Mecha anything... Yeah, EA shot themselves in the foot.

Titanfall will be ok in sales. It's on X1 with over 2 million consoles sold, probably over 3 million by then with Titanfall boosting sales. Then Xbox 360 has well over 80 million consoles sold and only God knows how many PCs are out there. I know Playstation fanboys at my job getting a X1 just because of Titanfall. I got a PS4 myself that I'm barely playing because I'm busy playing with my X1. I'll rent Infamous when it comes out and beat it but I'll buy Titanfall and the season pass.
Eonjay  +   702d ago
Thats all well and good, but how can it be that Titanfall can't run at 720p on Xbox One. Its not really doing that much. They are waiting for drivers? So sometime in January Microsoft will provide Respawn with tools to get the game stable at 720p? I don't think that fair to Respawn especially when a release date has already been announced. What is the rush?
Blacksand1  +   701d ago
I don't feel bad for Respawn. EA always chasing money and put Respawn in a bad spot. They should have made it for both console. MS made the X1 into a cable box that's why it 720p with a upscale to 1080p. My Fios is 720p with a upscale 1080p on HD channels.
Sitdown  +   701d ago
Are we still running with the cable box logic? It's not.... give it up already. At this time we don't know the full capacity of either systems so stop being so short sighted.
andrewsqual  +   701d ago
@Funantic1 Remember that everybody who wanted an Xbone, has one now. Lets see how sales will be against PS4 in 2014. Oh and Titanfall is not going to move consoles on any format just like Destiny won't.
mcstorm  +   701d ago
@andrewsqual how did you come to that conclusion? As it must be the same for the wiiu and ps4 then.

I know lots of people who want one of the next gen consoles but are waiting for a game before they get it. most people I know who want a x1 are waiting for titan fall, ps4 the next GT an wiiu is super smash bros.

This game will be a system seller and could be the next gear in terms of pushing consoles. MS saw this game and saw it had something different and looks to have a great selling point too it abit like halo so they put money into it and if ea and Microsoft push it the right way it will pay off for them both like gears and halo did.
abzdine  +   701d ago
this game looks very average and still has resolution problems due to the weak performance of X1.
i don't know how the future will be for this console if this is already happening now. Even for 99$ i wouldn't buy this piece of junk.
Rainstorm81  +   701d ago
Mcstorm ....Titanfall really? you put that up there with GT and SSB? You would've been better off saying Halo 5, that game will have more demand on XB1 than Titanfall

I feel like these companies are manufacturing demand for this game....its COD with wall running and mechs...(awesome mechs but mechs)...but we'll see when it releases
dantesparda  +   701d ago
So i thought the "stereo" drivers were supposed to be so impressive, this system is a complete and utter mess. Cant even handle Titanfall at 720p?! And can one of you MS fanboys explain to me just what is so special about Titanfall? cuz all i see is another FPS. The graphics arent even impressive, so what is it that im not seeing. Or is it just more blatant fanboyism cuz its exclusive?

Zancruz  +   701d ago
I just love reading simple minded post..(Lol).. I shouldn't even bother replying too them. Smh

@Funantic1 & KingKongKilla You both are slow as hell...

First, I never said Titanfall wouldn't sell well, nor did I say it's not a system seller. Titanfall being an exclusive game is only good for Microsoft, not EA/Respawn. Will EA/Respawn make an profit of course, hell they already have from the money Microsoft gave them.

What's the main point of business? To make money right? (READ THIS PART CAREFULLY) No matter how many X1, 360 and PC versions of Titanfall sells EA/Respawn could make even more money IF it was released on the Playstation brand too. You know the 80 million PS3 on the market. The Over 2 Million PS4 sold without even being released in the second biggest gamer country yet that's also mainly dominated by Nintendo and Sony...

Here's an example for the super retards... Let's say 1 million (A very modest number) playstation gamers would've brought Titanfall, That's $60 million... Now let's say half of them would've brought a $40 season pass, That's another $20 million not earned and what about Titanfall custom Playstation controllers, headsets and other Titanfall accessories? That's a ton of money they're missing out on! Wouldn't you say or am I still just being an ignorance fanboy KingKongKilla?

Oh and Funantic1 with over 7 billion in the world you know 3 people at work that's going buy an X1 for Titanfall? WOW, Game over Sony Gameover.. lol I'm glad you're enjoying your X1.

@Docknoss Believe or not it's not fiction. Businesses has implemented corporate spies and saboteurs in competing corporations, Big Businesses even have people in their pockets working in the government and so on... Business is war for the stockholders, they'll do anything to get an edge or to make things go their way. Not saying Peter Moore is one or not, I just wouldn't be surprised if he was.
insomnium2  +   701d ago

Most likely you are right. It's funny though how much weight all these exclusive games have now again when MS has a win by default situation in their hands. I say this because Sony JUST provided the PS3 with TONNES of games they could've put on PS4 instead like MS did. MS starved the X360 and now they have more games and the fanboys go nuts once again.

Listen it still is a marathon not a sprint no matter how fast PS4 is outselling the XB1. PS4 will only get better and the games....oh the friggen games will be there in spades. Even though PS4 is far from starving for good games it will be flooded soon enough. Will the good exclusive games become irrelevant once again?

It is YOU a-holes who keep this ball rolling with this "haz no gamez" and "haz no zalez". After starting with this same BS now again soon you will be calling PS4 gamers evil and stupid for "only caring about exclusive games". I don't know about you guys but I'm getting waaaay too old for this BS. Just wanted to point this out.

Several months ago, it was confirmed by insiders as well as actual developers (like J. Blow) that the difference in multiplats would be 1080p/60fps on PS4 and 720p/30fps on Xbox One. So many people grabbed their pitchforks and denied this was possible. They didn't want to believe it. Now, it's pretty obvious that it is the truth.

I'll laugh if it really is limited to 720p on the Xbox One. Fortunately, developers will be able to optimize their code on the Xbox One over time but if X1 is hitting these bottlenecks NOW (whereas PS4 is having no trouble holding better framerate and higher resolution in multiplats) then the gap in hardware power is only going to increase over time.
ShinMaster  +   700d ago
"PS4 port considered"? Yet sequels are confirmed.

Obvious exclusive deal with Microsoft for the first game.
Lior  +   702d ago
Its not optimised yet is because NVIDIA or AMD haven't got the game to optimise.
PudgeySan  +   701d ago
Nvidia and Amd Play no part in the optimization of the game except for supplying the latest resources for the game. The optimization would be solely up to Respawn.
Bladesfist  +   701d ago
@PudgeySan, I think he is talking about the PC version in which case they create a profile for the game and release it in the drivers which does improve performance.
Computersaysno  +   701d ago
I doubt he is talking about the PC version. Who tests and runs the PC version in 720p? Why on a modern PC would performance be so crippled it would run badly at only 720p?

Although it is only rumoured, it seems fairly evident that the console versions are going to run the game at 720p maximum including Xbox One. It only really makes any sense if you take the article and comment to mean the console versions.

"M$ funded this project for a long time. If l you guys read anything you'd know this, also you'd know Titanfall uses the Cloud, you know the thing you guys think doesn't exist" - Hmmm the way respawn entertainment explained their use of the servers don't sound like MS funding. It's more of MS subsidising their service to make it cheaper. Obviously with MS recently announcing free servers for third parties so that may have changed. Also no we know dedicated servers exist it's nothing new has been used for years in games and everything else e.g Google.


"Most importantly to us, Microsoft priced it so that it’s far more affordable than other hosting options – their goal here is to get more awesome games, not to nickel-and-dime developers. So because of this, dedicated servers are much more of a realistic option for developers who don’t want to make compromises on their player experience, and it opens up a lot more things that we can do in an online game" - Respawn

"Titanfall will outsell every PS4 exclusive in under 24hours" - Well it's releasing on *Three* platforms so yh ofc it's going to outsell a game that's on one platform with an install base of less than 3 million compared to a combined install base that is 30x more.

Jesus... another GAF insider. Funny how they always only have bad Xbox news. Never Sony news. Wonder why.

This site and there should start to become sister sites. I was banned for 2 weeks there for being glad that idiot Blow guy was being harassed on Youtube.. he complains all the time about everyone and everything, so I was glad he got a hard time. They banned me for saying that about Sony's John Blow.

I said something similar about the dude who said "Deal with it" And yet I wasn't banned.. perhaps because I said something about an MS guy that time instead.

Quite telling.

And now we have Thuway squawking about something that nobody knows if it's true or not one way or the other and yet it's all believed.

Hilarious. Figured this stuff would of ended once we launched.. Guess Sony fans still need to make hits instead of playing their games. Or maybe KZ is already beaten and now they're waiting for Infamous.
showtimefolks  +   701d ago

you guys do know that respawn works under EA's partners program right? meaning they not only own the IP but control it 100%

I guess MS wrote a big enough check, but i also like the fact it is coming to pc so you don't have to buy a xbox one to enjoy the game. It will be superior on PC anyway

EA wanted what activision has with MS, an exclusive DLC partnership and now MS/EA are closer than ever before. Activision is doing more stuff with sony now besides COD, like Destiny and diablo3. UBI has always favored sony and still are

its a business so if MS writes a big enough check i am sure most of us would sign exclusive with them too. I would much rather have sony spend on 1st party studios than something timed exclusive

its pretty much confirmed Titanfall 2 will be out on ps4

Actually you don't, just like we didn't know the first one was an all out exclusive to Xbox One.

Deals are discussed behind doors, just like how Gears of War never went to Playstation. Nobody thought EA would do an exclusive deal, being a third party publishing platform focusing on delivering games on as many platforms as possible. Yet, here we are with an all out exclusive Xbox One game!

Right now, Titanfalls 2 (as in the sequel to the non-existing first game) isn't even a sure fire thing yet.

Although I think Titanfalls will be one of the next years biggest game, maybe even the biggest. It has huge potential as a multiplayer game by the creators of CoD.

"Actually you don't, just like we didn't know the first one was an all out exclusive to Xbox One" - Well thanks to vince zampella we know it was a timed exclusive until some months ago.

"Nobody thought EA would do an exclusive deal, being a third party publishing platform focusing on delivering games on as many platforms as possible. Yet, here we are with an all out exclusive Xbox One game! " - Yh tbh no one knew EA could make such a decision behind respawn's back without even informing them before hand considering they don't even own respawn entertainment.

"Right now, Titanfalls 2 (as in the sequel to the non-existing first game) isn't even a sure fire thing yet" - As far as we know Titanfall is now a franchise in rotation with BF4 & star wars. So yh Titanfall 2 is coming at some point.

You're right that's not to say MS couldn't do the same thing again but considering vince sounded disappointed & PS4 is going to have the bigger install base when the next sequel arrives then Titanfall 2 is likely to come to PS4 and maybe PS3 also.

Its not MSs fault. They want the next Halo or Gears on their console...congrats to them. It is EAs fault. But the way they see it, they will take MSs money and do one of two things. Either they will release the second one on Sony also and make a gazillion dollars or they will leverage MS after seeing how many consoles it sells and money it makes and force them to pay a lot more for exclusivity. I just hate that, for a new IP, so many ppl around the world won't be able to play it. I will say this though, MS needed this and its gonna give them a huge boost.

M$ first gave Titanfall timed exclusive money, much like Mass Effect, then Respawn started buzzing about the PS4 version and M$ spit some more money to make Titanfall 1 exclusive to the X1.

With the selling pace of the PS4, M$ would have to spend crazy money to make the franchise exclusive, and even then it would be stupid by EA/Respawn to accept an offer.

No doubt EA is looking at the the PS4 outselling the XB1 3 to 1 and kicking themselves in the ass. If the PS4 keeps it up there is no way any money hat from MS is worth keeping it exclusive. You guys have to realize that these companies are not fanboys, they are businesses that like making money.

By the time Respawn gets to that you won't care anymore about this game and Sony will have some amazing titles by then. Furthermore if Titanfall does well expect the same thing to happen again. No way Microsoft will give this title to Sony if it's a hot commodity. That's what Microsoft does they buy stuff. They've been doing it since the 80s. They did it with COD map packs as well, which by now I would have figured it might have changed seeing that there are more PS3 owners now. I guess they shelled out more money to keep that going even with a dying game series.

720p always annoys me as a pc gamer. It bothered me in TLOU too. I keep thinking why is this not on pc it would look so much better in 1080p with anti aliasing... Yet we are forced to play this low res stuff. I still enjoyed the game but it's sad somehow. Imagine you could only watch certain movies on 480p televisions. The movie would still be good but it would still suck.

We have the technology but people are not using it because they are somehow forces to Dev for weaker systems. I play on consoles and I don't wanna be a fan boy but these are simple facts.

Totally Agree HarcoreDaBoss. People here don't understand what it is all about. Gameplay over graphics easily.

This does not mean that we don't think graphics are important or that they shouldn't be good. But I prefer solid gameplay over a resolution increase any day. I never had problems with sub 720p resolutions on my HDTV last gen and I won't have it current gen.

I do think that 720p with these graphics are really strange though and that I don't see how this is possible at all if a game like Battlefield 4 can achieve the same with better graphics.

And yes 1080p > 720p, but gameplay > x-amount of pixels.
jsslifelike  +   701d ago

You're totally right, but I'm pretty sure it's all about spending 4-500 dollars to play things in equal or lower resolution than what we have now. I'm holding off on a new console for now and instead opting for a new little Kaveri build next year. Money better spent ATM.

frostypants  +   701d ago
The problem is we are talking about next-gen consoles. 720p was ok in a game like TLoU on the PS3, but we're talking much faster hardware here.

Look, I'll be the first to argue that everything is a trade-off...that higher resolution and frame rate always come at the cost of something...but that trade-off gets easier to manage with better hardware, and we've seen nothing of Titanfall to indicate that it should be anything but a cakewalk to run in HD.

And graphics DO matter. It's the most hardware-intensive aspect of games, and it's 90% of the reason anyone ever upgrades. Anyone who denies it is lying. We don't need a GPU with 1200 shaders to run freaking Minecraft...

Obviously gameplay is king from a philosophical standpoint...but we all care about graphics. We keep demanding faster GPUs for PCs. We keep buying new consoles. Clearly, graphics are a huge factor.

I want the res to be 1080p also.. But this is consoles were talking about with closed boxes.. PC already can achieve over 1080p res with amazing textures with AA and maxed out.. Consoles are a step behind right now.. but I would still choose to lower the res in consoles to 720p and have the graphics look way better.. then to have the game in 1080p with graphics lowered down..
kingPoS  +   702d ago
Whether the game is 720p 1080p or 1440p, it doesn't mean the game is bad, resolution is just pixels.

Looks like I'm not buying it. I don't even play Simcity that I bought on Origin because I forget that I have it since I always have one game service open(steam obviously).

Titanfall is source engine game though. It will be hilarious in a wrong way if it isn't on Steam.

frostypants  +   701d ago
Still seems odd though. From the footage we've all seen, it looks like the kind of game that should scream on these new consoles at 720. If they are having to wait for drivers just to hit 720p, that's a horrible sign...if not for the One, then for the game engine they are using.

I think you're a bit confused there bud. It's xbox owners that have been starved for quality exclusives for the past 3 years and I, as a PS3/4 owner I have too many games to play, including many great f2p games.

I guess when you're that butt hurt about all the wide spread favor Sony is getting around the world you resort to flat out BS. Your tears are very tasty btw.

DigitalRaptor  +   702d ago
I kinda agree with you there. Titanfall looks good (not strong visually, but gameplay-wise), but you take something like Planetside 2 - which is doing a whole lot more than Titanfall is (visually and gameplay) - that's coming to PS4, and where's the hype for it?

It's probably because Titanfall is upcoming, and PS2 has been available on PC for a while, but I also don't get the hype. I could get it on PC if I wanted, but I'm still unsure. Looks like a beefed up COD-style experience to me. Maybe that's why it looks to be so popular.

I don't get the hype either. To me it looks like COD with mechs. Nothing wrong with that but I am not expecting this new revolutionary game that a lot of people seem to be expecting (I feel they will be disappointed). Like you said PS2 seems to be doing a lot more. Sure the FPS genre has desterioted through a lack of innovation by saturation but I don't think Titanfall is the answer. I see it as more of the same
frostypants  +   701d ago
Planetside 2 though is more like MAG...MMO with more emphasis on sheer battle scale than anything else. Games like that feel a lot different than normal shooters, and tend to have less focus on graphics. I doubt Planetside 2 will have the same level of graphical detail as a Titanfall, unless the Titanfall devs seriously screw up.

edgeofsins  +   701d ago
I don't think BX81 gets it.

Your console doesn't focus on gaming. It launched its main games at launch, which turned out to be a 3 hour pretty tech demo called Ryse, Forza with less content then it's 3rd release and still has micro-transactions to offer after they made the game lack content, Dead Rising 3 is alright but it has some performance issues due to too many enemies on screen, and then they focused almost entirely on the TV feature for the consoles unveiling, and after all the damage control they tried to do by making the consoles sound equal in performance it turns out they focused far too much on the non-gaming side of things and now they screwed some added potential that games for the system could have.

Now we hear this news about Titanfall having trouble at 720p, when it runs on Source Engine, which is one of the least hardware demanding engines. Sure this game pushes the engine further but if my laptop can max out portal 2 no problem at 1600x900 I definitely expect a console that should have superior gaming hardware to play something like Titanfall at 720p.

Microsoft has basically laid out their plans. They have about nothing to fall back on or to show us in the future at e3. We can always depend on Sony in the games department. Even their biggest studios have split into two teams, meaning two projects at once whether it be working on updates for a past game or making DLC while the other studio works on a whole new game or if both work on a game.

MS is investing a lot in games and more will come next year, as on PS. Just enjoy the games and stop the sad fanboyism.

well done to you, you have noticed haha.

I put my own little review on the comments, on both because i have both and i got lashed with replies calling me a fanboy. it is just idiocy and proves that most gamers are thick kids nowadays.

its not about games anymore, its an aggressive competition, we don't have ww2, we don't have race issues or gender issues. we have the peaceful, ridiculous and futuristic game issues.

i can't wait for titanfall, infamous and mostly quantum break but i've seen so many comments stating that "titanfall doesn't look that good." That's what i used to say about some of my brothers toys because i didn't have them when i was little.

We'll to be blunt MS did try to destroy console gaming as we know it, so understandably some people are still very angry about that and aren't going to forgive them just because they got caught, unlike a certain other group.

Also, if there weren't idiot MS fanboys running around saying "o, you can barely notice the resolution difference. 124% more pixels isn't that much" than maybe there wouldn't be so many of these articles and the Sony fanboys wouldn't be correcting the MS fanboys all the time.

I agree it gets a bit much sometimes, but until a certain group just accepts the truth and realises they can still enjoy there console of choice then it's not going to stop.

Seeing as the graphics and performance of the game won't be taxing on the engine their using (looks last gen tbh) i'm betting the 360 version will have the same resolution as the X1(720p)

F-ing geez!! Seriously let's all just stop this console dominance/ignorance/blatant disregard for whether or not a certain system has a game you want....Who the hell cares if MS paid to have it exclusive? It's their decision to do what they will with their money!!!
Just like US, the gamers, everyone has to decide what they wanna buy! DUH!
If you want the damn game so bad that you'll bitch about not getting it, then maybe you should just get BOTH systems or pc, etc.. if you DON'T want it, then quit bitching about who paid for what! Quit acting like you're better than anybody else for not getting a game you're trying with all your might to claim won't even be that great/fun/worth it/relevant!!
If you stupid gamers are saying it's gonna be a dumb game, THEN PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF FUCKING GOD, don't PROVE how worried you are about the game being epic by bitching about not getting it!!!!!

Seriously... you guys ALSO have games MS gamers want, and in comparison to you dill-tards, THEY aren't even CLOSE to the same scale of bitchy-assed bitching about exclusive games/titles/features or paranoid B.S. about behind-closed-door deals... (whether or not they actually happen, OR matter in the long scheme of things)
IF you "Have the best system" like you all claim, you wouldn't be so afraid of Titanfall proving that good games can come out on ANY system!!!

Even cellphones and handhelds have great games, and even the Wii U... Now grow a pair, and ACCEPT the choice YOU made to pick whatever system/s you chose/choose, and let's all enjoy our games in some fucking PEACE for ONCE!!!

You aren't gonna see me cry about not getting a certain game for ANY system, because I know the logical way to GET to play the games I want to is to buy them, rent them, or play them at a friend's house! If you can't financially afford to, then tough shit! Welcome to a little thing we call life!

I mean, for reals... that's like bitching because you have a smaller penis, or a smaller set of biceps, or an uglier girlfriend, slower car!

I don't know man, from your comment it seems like you'r the bitchy ass complainer.

I guess you haen't noticed but barely anyone is complaining this game isn't coming to the PS4.

What some people are complaining about though is the fact that is was coming to the PS4 and MS throw money at EA to block it coming to the console.

You see how pathetic that is on both MS and EAs part? Paying and accepting money so that PS4 owners miss out.

But of course you don't see the glaring obvious corrupting in that anti-consumer behaviour.

But it's their money right? They can do what ever the hell they want with it. So how bout I hire a hitman to do some wetwork on my boss...

i still dont understand how people defend MS when it comes to their @xbox indie policy of parity across platforms then champion timed exclusives

Praise RYse and Forza for being pretty but then say its not about graphics but gameplay with titanfall

Condemn every company for microtransactions even if they arent necessary (Capcom, GTA5,NBA2k14 comes to mind)...but totally gloss over the fact that majority of the XB1 exclusive lineup has microtransactions

Say its all about games and are in complete denial that Sony has been more dedicated to releasing 1st party exclusive games and developing 1st party developers than MS has ever been.....and as if MS hasnt abandoned not one but two generations of Xbox early in favor of Next gen.

Complain about fanboys but do the very shyt that they complain about.....USELESS!

If PS4 wasnt as popular as it is, it would be just the same as when the 360 had its time of popularity.....Xbox fanboys run amok.

Buy ur system and enjoy it, why does anyone else opinion matter? The only thing Xbox fans should be concerned about is PS4 market share
assdan  +   701d ago
I hate the idea that a company would PAY to make a game exclusive when it was originally going to be for all consoles. I know both companies do it, but MS does is A LOT more than sony. for these people to see it as a good deal, MS would have to pay them as much or MORE than the game would have profited if it were on other consoles. So essentially in doing so, they spend the money it would take to finance a game to keep it out of other people's hands. If they wouldn't have done this, MS could have financially backed a game from a company they actually own. So essentially, everyone would have one more game. PS4 people would have titanfall, and MS people would have titanfall and a undetermined project. I'm not really bitching either, I'm just stating a fact that clearly got you way more fired up than I was. If you don't see how this is complete crap, I don't understand you. So what you're telling me is, that you wouldn't rather have it that every person could get every game?
If you ask me, Microsoft has been a parasite to the gaming world ever since they've entered hardware. The only benefits they've truly had are Halo 1 and 2, and making a standardized online network (and they still made it the standard to have to pay for it). And Sony likely would have introduced PSN with or without seeing the first xbox. Other than that, they've introduced no new ideas. They just follow the current trends in the gaming market and constantly play it safe. Sony actually backs new and creative ideas. Look at the exclusive title lineup for sony, and look at sony's. Xbox is shooter, shooter, shooter, racing. That's it. Sony has platformers, racing games, shooters, every genre. They've even backed new genres. MS has no benefit ot the gaming market, so no, I'll never get one of their consoles. I don't support what they have done with the console market. I wish they would sell xbox, and focus on their good products again (ie windows).
Cueil  +   701d ago
We've got some ignorance going on here... Sony money hatted most of their studios before purchasing them outright... so please lets not bitch and moan about Microsoft plucking up single franchises when Sony locks up entire studios and then buys them up
snp  +   701d ago

Bit different. I've got no problem with MS paying third parties to develop game ideas for them, or funding studios ground up to make something or even buying the studios - it represents a sincere commitment rather than purely opportunism. Though the output is exclusive, it adds something to the industry overall (which wouldn't have been there without said funding/arrangements).

Paying a company to 'not' release something on a competitors platform, which they've already plans to release and a games who's development you've had nothing to do with... that adds absolutely nothing to the industry. It's the act of a company with little interest in anything involved in expanding or investing in the industry and completely in grabbing what they can quick as for a competitive advantage (pigbacking another companies hype/success to make up for their lack of forethought).

A game like Titanfall SHOULD be on all platforms, but there really it seems to me that EA decides who gets what exclusivity over Titanfall and Titanfall 2 unless their contractual agreement w/ Respawn is up before Titanfall 2 is made.
