The Titanfall Xbox One Console Was Real But it was Axed Due to Cost According to Insider

Yesterday an alleged insider leaked the mock up picture of a custom Titanfall Xbox One console. You can see it in the picture above.

According to industry insider Pete Dodd, also known ass FamousMortimer (well know for several leaks that turned into reality) the console was real, but it was axed due to the cost of the operation.

Well at march we will see who was right.

Place your bets folks.

I vote it's not coming also. But I think that will be a packaged bundle with the game.

I vote that they are going to go through with it. They sold out of the controller, so there is definitely some Titanfall hype. I think it would definitely boost some sales and increase the already high enthusiasm towards the game.

lol, the life of a "insider" is pretty good. When "insiders" are wrong they just say it was "axed", "they changed plans", "my sources misqouted the info" etc, etc the good thing about a made up rumor is as long you never admit your just guessing and say "things changed", you are never really wrong because you are a "insider". Also I always hear the belief in their creditability is based off of vague predictions they got right vs a long track record of detail accurate reporting prior to anyone else being aware of a bit of blockbuster surprise news.

Do not see it happening.

This is sad to see. No really it is. When a game has a console bundle that suddenly gets cancelled it is like going on a driveby with a flat tire.

I vote it's not coming because famousmortimer's track record is well proven.

I'm also sad because that's probably the most beautiful piece of hardware I saw in a while.

... I personally think the white one looks way better. Maybe its one of those things you have to see in person, but the pictures look horrible and I don't think it would match anyone's entertainment setup = my opinion = not a statement of fact. I agree it probably not coming but I'm not sure it seriously ever was.

axed because of a paint job?

--Onilink--1629d ago

was thinking the exact same thing

Abriael1629d ago

it's a pretty complex and colorful paint job. Done in thousands of copies it's not cheap to do.

hazelamy1629d ago (Edited 1629d ago )

that's not complex, it's mostly solid blocks of colour, that looks like an easy print.

now this.

is complex.

That was Halo. This is a new IP, cost has always to be compared with risk.

What has an acceptable cost for halo might not for a new IP.

theWB271629d ago

Cost...which means they'd have to manufacture this paint job along with the regular consoles.

Sounds reasonable, if true, that they didn't want to incur the cost of extra manufacturing.

quaneylfc1629d ago

websites about video games rely too heavily on the things stated by insiders....says an insider

cyguration1629d ago

Your inside information is wrong, says another insider

4Sh0w1629d ago

Or it was never real and when "insiders" are wrong they just say it was "axed".

christocolus1629d ago

Or maybe the rumour was false to begin with.
