It may be available on PC and Xbox 360, but after hands-on time with Titanfall, Stace Harman asks if this Microsoft-exclusive FPS can push gamers towards a brand new console.
The Xbox One is running a graphically downgraded version of a game that anyone with decent PC can play. Who the hell would think that that would cause people to rush out and spend 500 dollars on a Xbox One?
You seem to have a lot more info than anyone. Please link us to this graphically downgraded nonsense your spouting.
Every single game that's out on Xbox One that is also out on PC? Just go on youtube and search for graphical comparisons.
If history has taught us something then it will obviously be a graphically downgraded version from the PC version, as is the case with 98% of games?
all console games are downgraded graphically from their PC counterparts
Is that why the 360 version is delayed? 360 = 720p? Xbox one = 792p
There is barely graphics differences between alpha and beta version of TitanFall for Xbone. And i'm sure that X360 version is pretty much the same like Xbone version. So, wait for 2 weeks and buy X360 version for 60$. Why pay 560$. Same building, same floor, just different sides on that floor : alpha : [IMG] http://i.imgur.com/lJtuIYe.... beta : [IMG] http://i.imgur.com/ILLOV5Y....
Well isn't it pretty much guarnateed that any games available on both PCs and consoles is going to look better on the PC? Maybe you're just being defensive because he said 'graphically downgraded' instead of just saying 'won't look as good'.
@GiantEnemyCrab You can see information about the graphical downgrade on Digital Foundry where they talk about the game being 792p on Xbox One, as well as how the game struggles to maintain 60fps. Meanwhile the PC version will be able to run at 1080p (and higher) with framerates of 60fps and above. Thanks to the game running on a modified version of the Source Engine, it won't require a powerful PC to run either, as the recommended specs released by EA confirm. Xbox One version of Titanfall is for chumps :)
Here we go again. If all these so called people had gaming PC's why would you ever play multiplats on consoles. This is how I know all this talking is a facade. Battlefield 4, AC Black Flag, COD Ghosts, need for Speed Rivals, Injustice, Thief, Dark Souls 2, Watch Dogs, the Divison, Dying Light.... These are some big games that are or will be on ps4, XB1, and PC. I don't think I have heard one person say how they will be getting one of these games "on pc" other than to slight XB1 with Titanfall. I guess all this time gamers have been happy playing the "inferior version," . As I have said plenty of times, I always get a good laugh at the hypocrisy. I was a big PC gamer in the early 2000's with TFC, CS, AoE, Wolfenstein, Day of Defeat, Medal of Honor, Battlefield 1942....Those days are gone there is not even close to as many PC gamers now as there was in those days, because that was the place to be for online gaming. Consoles basically took over that market, because of convenience and price. Yea there are 70+ million steam accounts, but how many are active accounts. I have 3 accounts and haven't logged in since probably 2004, my brother same thing. Xbox Live will be where the majority of players play Titanfall, whether these "so called" pc gamers like it or not. By the way pc gamers today play games like League of legends, there is no game in the atmosphere of Half Life for PC and hasn't been for 10 years. What is so funny is more ps4 fans would tell you why they didn't get an XB1, more than they would tell you why they got a ps4. Basically they admit time and time again, MSFT pushed them to ps4 because of the E3 policies. All that tells me is that you need this site to justify your purchase. More proof look at the attached article, I specifically called out ps4 fanboys to compare games and only 1 guy responded with a bunch of games I never heard of. Yes ps4 is more powerful, but XB1 has better games, ACCEPT IT. Standby for Titanfall. http://n4g.com/news/1455596...
Thats awesome Jimbo.... Will not have to upgrade my PC till next year then..... I am stoked over that....
Wow...TRUEFAN1 your right for once. Most will play it on XBL on the xbox 360. After all why would anyone pay close to $600 to play it when they can pay $65 if they have the 360 like myself. And if they don't have the 360 then they'll go the PC version or not play it at all. Very few will spend the close to $600 for the fun. If they don't the 360 then most likely they have a PS4 and will be more than happy to wait for TF2.
I'm sitting pretty with a serious GPU and I was* originally planning on getting this for PC. Here's the issue. Friends. WAY more people play consoles than PC games... do I wish this was the opposite? Yes! But, I have 2 friends that keep up w/ their PC hardware and 6-7 that already jumped to Xbox One. Even with the temptation to run TF @ 1440 resolution; I may be one of the "converted" Xbox One owners in the very near future. @ BabyObama is 100% btw, packing it w/ the Kinect is silly. It's to make an extra $30 profit on the machine and cover the console's cost. Microsoft seems to forget that they "took a loss" for a year or two on the 360, they are making a profit on the Xbox One as of Day 1. This was done specifically to get a foot hold and grow users against PS3... they forgot their roots and got a little greedy with the X1 this generation. Seems a bit contradictory given the PS4's power and reduced price. But... we are a very "herd-like" industry. And my herd has chosen the Xbox One.
Atm it seems the rest of the world is turning to PS4 though. Twice the sales per week. 4! times the sales in Europe. Curious if Titanfall will change anything about that situation.
@kraenk12 if Microsoft wanted Titanfall to actually move XBO units off the shelve , the PC and 360 version should not exist!
You know 6 to 7 people with Xbox Ones? Wow.
@kraenk12... your comment seems extreme. "The rest of the world is turning to PS4" Really? Is that why numerous devs are starting to come out and state a preference for Xbox One? I'm not looking for a console war. You missed the point. If my friends were buying PS4's, so would I. But, they aren't. @ qu1ckset... again, WTF is up with the insta-console war? You are also making absurd generalizations. So, because YOU don't know anyone with a particular console, that indicates that NO ONE buys it? What? I said Xbox One, not Wii U! I agree with some of your points however in terms of how MS should change the XBO. Future reference, I'd suggest dropping the M$ moniker, as they make an incredibly small amount on the Xbox. BTW, there's a nifty little thing called the INTERNETS where you can do research to realize just how wrong your generalizations are: http://www.playstationlifes... Enjoy!

No way am I getting and X1 for this game. Not when I already have 3 PCs in my house that will be able to play it above what the X1 will be able to play the games at.
the title says upgrade to....... upgrade?
Is that the goal? Last gen looking COD ripoff. I don't think so.
Dude, COD Ghosts is a last gen COD ripoff. At least Titanfall is doing something different. UAENO!
parkour and mechs not to be saying that not innovative but if you really think about it its not to much change
@sckipt... True. It's nothing wildly different... but, within the FPS genre Titanfall is like comparing Half Life to Pong. FPS has been STALE for a long time. That being said, Evolve and Destiny could really shake things up on a much larger scale.
No thanks I'm going to get this game on PC bro!
Sony fanboys suddenly have PCs to play multi platform games lol
I think anyone with half a decent laptop can run any source game at ultra with AA and aniso, with hdr and everything..at 60-120fps. Hell even 1.0 was optimized as hell 10 years ago.
I built a nice computer that can run any game, especially Source engine games at 1080p. It really isn't expensive to do it. What are you going on about? Are you jealous Sony fans have money left over from their console purchase to put towards a PC or are you calling people liars? Either way Titanfall looks like dookie compared to most games releasing lately. If that is the best the XBO has to offer until Christmas it is going to be a long year for Microsoft.
GDDR6 That made me laugh a bit. However, it does go to show though how many people want to avoid getting an Xbox One. You know what's also really weird, none of my friends even know about Titanfall, maybe it's just internet hype? I'm pretty sure MS will start advertising this like crazy soon though.
Or they rename it to Call Of Duty Mech Attack at the last second before launch.
Suddenly? Iv had a gaming PC's for as long as i can remember! Playstation / PC is the way to go! You get all the bad ass Playstation Exlusives and you get to play the definitive version of multi-platform games and some "microsoft exclusives" such as Titanfall on PC. The only xbox games i cant really play on PC are Forza, Halo, Fable and Gears and those few games arent enough to convince me to buy an xbox. Well except Halo and Fable but I havent really enjoyed a Halo game since Halo 3 and i hated all Fables after the 1st one. I would buy an xboxone for an hd remake of Halo 2 though... if multiplayer was untouched and in tact.
Wii U + PC is the way to go.
@thezeldadoth Yeah that would be an winning combo too if you like Nintendo exclusives more than Playstation exclusives. Apparently there are a lot on Nintendo haters here judging by all the disagree's. Iv always loved Nintendo just didnt dig the whole motion gaming thing they had with the Wii. The Wii U seems interesting though and i may buy it one day of these days. Super Smash Brothers and Mario Kart are always a blast!
Think most everybody has a PC these days, even grandma... I wouldn't get the PC version unless they actually catered to the community specifically, pushed texture resolutions through the rough, higher poly models and environments, better visual effects, the usual stuff. I have a feeling they will omit most of those improvements though so as not to diminish the reception of the X1 version.
Everybody? I think not.
@darx see that itty biddy word right there? "most" makes a bit of a difference, so in essence, your statement is correct... but based on, essentially, no part of MY statement as your omission of the differentiating term renders the reply to my opinion.... well you get the picture
You must have meant almost.
No, I'll play it on my 360, then wait a year for and a half for a sequel.
For the same price as an Xbox One I'm building a PC that can play games like Titanfall maxed out st 1080P at 60FPS.
It doesn't take much of a PC to run Titanfall, so yeah there are lots of them around.
@replies above I was calling out the Sony fanboys that would bash PCs in other threads now suddenly have PCs to play Titanfall, where did their PCs go in multi plat games that are on both PC/PS4?
no, but they'll do anything to avoid the xb1, at this point.
Nice! I was thinking the same thing... hilarious, for years the Sony fanboys would label PC gamers as "elitists". Now, with Titanfall, they are scrambling to build their gaming rigs to maintain console allegiance.
I'm playing on dat PC, so nah.
I don't think that is the plan for Respawn. They just want to make a great competitive online game. This new gen needs one bad with the crappy FPS choices we have in broken Battlefield, CoD, KZ, and a bunch of F2P garbage.
It will sell only reason im saying this is cause 3 of my friends want a xbox one but are waiting for the games to start to role in and titanfall is the first of many. I know its not 100 xbox one exclusive but they just need something to justify there purchase and titanfall is it.
A game that you can play on your 360 justifies your purchase? Wtf?
not what i said at all but ill let you think that.
I have a PS4, so getting an X1 would be a downgrade, not an upgrade...
this game will be a fail
keeping a mental note of all of the people saying this game will fail now but when TitanFall 2 comes to PS4 it will be the greatest.
lol, see what you did there...but in an odd way you may be correct, I mean surely they would improve on the first...
It will not because its been overhyped like the next come of Jesus.Microsoft will do its work of payins to all those willing to overhype this on reviews,reviewers are not like 15 year ago,and the media is almost all sold out and in need of revenue to pay the workers.
Nope!!! It's already a success judging by the media reports. We already know what kind of power that has. It's coming out on PC, 360, and Xbox One so that gives them enough room to sell through. It might not be the mega-success of Halo. But, it will be successful enough to warrant a sequel for sure.
Titanfall is also on Xbox 360. So by Xbot logic, Xbots think how a game looks is irrelevant so their 360 would serve them well. The Xbox One version doesn't seem to be that much of a upgrade. People are blinded, and think Titanfall is only on Xbox One.
Edit: TheratedD beat me to it ^.^
Even if it get a boost what then. Its not fair to put the fortunes of an entire system on one game, or one developer for that matter. I'm sure it will sell some Xbox Ones, but if it doesn't pass or come close to matching the PS4 numbers, people are probably going to blame this game and that is also not fair.
I don't think so...
IDK, kind of a hard sell now isn't it? Even at the optimum resolution they could possibly get by the release date (surpassing 792p by how much)? Have they said how the LACK of "cloud" functions may affect 360 version, which I assume does not have the ability to take advantage of... the advantages of the "cloud?" THAT will be an interesting comparison review, 360 versus X1 versions. I'm not seeing it.
PC and 360 versions are also using the cloud. It's a cloud used across all MS platforms.
They stated this? So 360 can take advantage as well then, and as anyone else with a brain MUST realize now, any device that can connect to the internet can take similar advantage? Therefore... it is NOT by definition any exclusive advantage at all to one platform and should not be advertised as such? Thank you for the clarity there.
Any time bro. I'm getting the PC version. I believe it was a euro gamer article that has the quote bit I'm too lazy to look for it.
Millions? COD Ghosts on PS4 or XBO has not even sold in the millions. COD PS4 1.77M COD XBO 1.48M
and that has single player which believe it or not a lot of people buy it for...
Not going to convince me. One game doesn't justify a $500+ purchase in my opinion. I'll just play it on my PC.
I think this game will do big number on PC.
And perhaps show ea not to fudge PC gamers anymore. Then again it is ea
buying the game on pc, the xbox one cost way too much. console 499.99 game 59.99 online pass 49.99 its almost 700 dollars
