Gameondaily discusses Titanfall's absence on the PlayStation 4 and the insecurity it's limited exclusivity has caused for some gamers.
Trying to brag about a graphically downgraded PC port on the Xbox One that anyone with a decent home PC can play?
Flamebait article is flamebait. Each platform has its own exclusives. It's abit premature to shoot your load, about an XbOne excusive that is not yet released to see if it is any good. The exact same premise could be used to argue for any PS4 exclusives e.g. "No Naughty Dog game on the XbOne is a BIG deal. Deal with it!" Or the fact that so far there have been more AAA exclusives announced for the PS4 than the XbOne. There were more AAA exclusives released for the PS3 than the 360. Ergo there will be more PS4 exclusives released than XbOne exclusives.
Yeah, I had a good chuckle at the little blurb insisting that gamers are insecure when the only insecurity I'm seeing is from this guy desperately trying to insist that Titanfall is more important than people seem to think it is.
"Hi, I have a completely reasonable and fair criticism of a game." "ZOMG SONY FANBOYYYYYY!!!!11!!!1"
"Gameondaily discusses Titanfall's absence on the PlayStation 4 and the insecurity it's limited exclusivity has caused for some gamers." And N4G discusses the resulting insecurity over the fact that, just maybe, not everyone wants to play this game or has other means of playing it besides an Xbox One. BTW, this is a trollish headline, so I don't want to see any comments reported as trolling. You know, to maintain the balance here...
I can literally taste the tears of whoever decided to write that article. "n-nooo it's IMPORTANT okaaayy? >:'("
I think the hype for the game and the final sales number for both the game and Xbox One (upon release and later) will speak if Titanfall mattered! "Or the fact that so far there have been more AAA exclusives announced for the PS4 than the XbOne. There were more AAA exclusives released for the PS3 than the 360. Ergo there will be more PS4 exclusives released than XbOne exclusives" You mean like "Agent" or "Last Guardian"? Point being, it is nice to have announcements, but when are they going to be released? On top of that, the final quality of the game also matters. Remember when Halo and Gears of War sold more than multiple Sony exclusives combined? Content quality and demand matters!
It's obvious u are insecure since u and many others feel he need to reply to an article to defend yourselves, your actions prove your insecurity lol.
This doesn't effect either the PS4 or the Xbox One for me because if I want to play it, I can get it on PC. Why are we going to continue to ignore that. Everytime the PS4 get a PC game, people love to point out that its not a PS4 exclusive. The same is true for Titanfall. This is getting stupid now.
More indies have been Announced on ps4 , but Xbone got more AAA titles announced
Remember, this is from the talent who made Call of Duty the powerhouse name it is today. The same people working on Titanfall are the ones who almost redefined what value means in an entire genre. Their game not coming to PS4 is a fairly big deal as fanboyism aside, it's something most gamers should be at least curious about given their history. Being honest though, it's just as much of a big deal for Respawn because they've alienated themselves from the console which is looking extremely likely to be out in front in the console war.
Infamous looks to be the game to beat anyways, not sure how anyone will have a hard time dealing with it, Especially if they own a PC...
I personally think Titanfall will be huge, just like Gears of War was. Given the genre, it is likely to be the biggest game of the year, next to CoD. The hype is off the chart, and the reports coming back are all positively off the chart as well. Everything we see it is likely to be a monster game that gamers will enjoy for a long time forward. I cannot wait to get it on my Xbox One! Hoping I got in on the beta!
The comments on here actually reaffirm everything said in the article lol. Ah you guys :)
Yes its a big deal for ponies cause they are in every article for tf. The game its amazing, and its an exclusive for the best machine. ND all it had its the tlou cause uncharted its crAp. A wanbe tr. long live xbox fk playstation. And fk u all ponies!! But its right for a ps4 game like infamous to run at 30fps but a xbox runs at 30fps it sucks be fair for both sides. Looks like all ponie here get pId for trashing xbox. Fk u all bths.
Oh no, not another one of these articles. Its really not a big deal since PC owners can still buy it, both systems will have exclusives, so instead of calling each other trolls and fanboys, let's just play some friggen games and have fun.
Infamous is not on Xbox one, its a big deal. Deal with it? Oh wait I can't even play that on pc
Titanfall Full HD Edition 16vs16 real players coming to a PS4 near you in 2015. Unles M$ pays a sht load of money to keep it exclusive.
I'm pretty sure it was announced/confirmed that Titanfall would be Xbox/PC exclusive forever. Only hope those of you that want to play Titanfall on a PS4 is to wait for an actual Titanfall 2. I have no interest in the title though, so it's not a big deal for me at all.
@Khurg Only this iteration is a lifetime exclusive, any sequel or GOTY edition is fair play. I wouldn't put it past MS to pay a lot of money to keep this game exclusive. But keep in mind, that as more PS4s fly off the shelves, the price tag to do this is going to get higher and higher, enough to start cutting into their overall profit margins. Context: http://www.tannerhelland.co... That green line is the Xbox division, and how much it makes per year. Do you see how small the margin is compared to the other divisions? I doubt MS even needs to buy another exclusive, since the Titanfall brand is already associated with Xbox. This is probably going to be a Mass Effect-type situation. BTW: That red bar is Bing.
@tomshoe I hadn't considered that any goty editions or "hd" Editions of titanfall wouldn't fall under any exclusivity deals. That's an Interesting perspective and while I still can't play the game even if it comes to ps4 I'm sure it will still make many happy.
I'd bet my life savings that Microsoft will do everything it can to keep Titanfall exclusive. I think with how the console war is shaping up though, the PS4 will just be far too lucrative to not develop for.
i personally is not losing sleep over this if i was into playing on a pc i would just buy it for that.
Look at this casual crap. http://www.youtube.com/watc... I'm not sure about the rest of the PS fanbase but I know I would be A-Ok if I never got to play this game.
you mean like infamous is the same casual bs just with better graphics?
He is right, it is a big deal....to EA and their share holders who are sitting there going wtf have we done!
^^^, I have no idea how the deal is set but if EA can find anyway to get in on the PS4 they will. I would bet that they have their lawyers working on getting some kind of iteration of it on PS4 right now. It just makes sense for them money wise.
Any decent pc can play at resolutions and detail beyond ps4, nevermind the xb1. The point is the ps4 is not getting this game, not whether the pc looks better. I play my games on pc now, but I'm not going to join the pathetic pc elitist band of bores.
I forgot that all PS4 owners also have a decent PC and love to play on it. Oh, the humanity...
If you wanted to play titanfall it would be a big deal, but even then you could get a cheap pc to satisfy your craving.
This was a brilliant piece, he spoke what many have been saying. The beauty is that he wasn't confrontation, he simply "told it like it is." I personally find the jealously and constant politician like flip flopping hilarious. Standby for Titanfall. Edit: @Rig_Master you are hilarious as you have Microsoft icon as your profile pic.
I agree truefan First Sony gamers were claiming that the game was not exclusive then when they found out it was they began hating. Enjoy your system of choice and don't worry about us Xbox gamers we are good. Note also to the bandwagon jumpers re: sales no need to compare due to one being in 52 countries and the other in 13 they both doing well for there respective territories. The generation just started geesh
But it's killing your console in USA alone two to one
Here's the thing it's not
Maybe it's because Rig_Master stands for... rig? As in PC? And his comment was about playing it on PC? Besides, it's a windows icon. So basically it makes all the sense in the world
Lol brilliant? You are about as brilliant as a box of rocks if you think this flambait is brilliant.
What's that truefan? Didn't quite catch that. The PS4 outsold the xbone 2:1 in January NPD??? Yikes! jk jk :) I agree there is a little jealousy and goal post moving when we found out TF was remaining an exclusive, but no where near the proportions that people like you are claiming. Most level headed Sony fans are pointing out the obvious. That it's also available on PC that most of us have and most of us could run it quite easily. Also the PC version is going to be leagues above the xbone version if the resolution stays anywhere near the 782p (or whatever it was). What really is hilarious is the fact that you and others on this site and the article are pointing out insecurity plagued among sony fanbays, but ironically all I see is insecurity from you guys. You're pretending to be calm and confident, but I can easily see you're desperately hoping this game moves xbone consoles.
or you can just own both systems and play games from both companys. gamer 1st.
I agree DEEBO
Judging by your disagrees, the people believe arguing about which system is better is more important than experiencing both sides of the argument. If you don't like Titanfall, fine, but don't bash the people who do. Vice versa as well.
Because it is typical man-child behavior on this and many other sites. They can't stand tall on their own two feet so they knock others down to "feel" taller.
If N4G was a country, people that enjoy what all platforms have to offer would be shot.
100% agree but it does suck that ps gamers may not get a chance to play it that like fps games.
I think more shooter fans are gonna be fine just getting the next COD on Ps4 then paying $560 for this game If they don't game on PC's ofcourse But it'll definitely be big for Xbox
I'll play it on PC. So is there something wrong with what I said? I have a capable PC and the game is available on PC. I am not flaming the console or anything, just saying what I'll get it for. I seem to be receiving a lot of hate these days :/
That's what they all say...
That is what all the people who will play in on pc say.... amazing observational prowess.
If you bought a PC in the last 3yrs, you have more than a capable PC for playing Titanfall. Kinda interested to see what the 360 version looks like.
Don't mind your disagrees. This site just contains quite a few MS apologists, despite the fact others will tell you differently. They think by you getting the vastly superior PC version, you're being insecure of admitting defeat in some way. or maybe they just don't think you have a capable PC when my 3 year old mid range PC can easily run this. Or maybe they just want to pretend the PC version doesn't exist. Either way it's all crazy and they're just being insecure, so just wave and smile and enjoy it when it releases on PC. :)
"They think by you getting the vastly superior PC version, you're being insecure of admitting defeat in some way." - it depends on the variables. If a PS4 player was looking forward to playing this game, and has now opted to play this game on PC due to there being no other option, then it could be translated as admitting defeat. It's also funny how you talk about insecurity, and then add the completely unnecessary "vastly superior" line in front of PC, like some sort of juvenile jab at the xbox, in an attempt to convince others, or perhaps even yourself, of the level of inferiority the xbox has - it's classic insecure behavior.
Nothing wrong with that at all enjoy your system or systems of choice. I hate fanboys they ruin gaming for others
I'm dealing with it. I think I'm holding up pretty well.
Insecurity? The name of this article screams insecurity. Wah! you're not paying attention to my game! It looks meh to me, running on the outdated source engine and 6v6 is a turnoff.
In all honesty this game looks identical to call of duty ghost with mechs IMO. Just check out the new footage. I know i havent played the game but from what I have seen i wouldnt get this on the ps4. Enjoy it xbox 1 owners.
I'm dealing with it, and I still don't care about a COD with Mechs game
At this point in time i would say that no titanfall on ps4 hurts ea and titanfall more than the ps4. The sales for tomb raider as well as the fact that that the ps4 already has 3 fps's compel me to think this. It was a fitting semi exclusive for ms though. God knows they need one for the first half of this year.
Agreed, I love my ps4 but hate that we don't have titanfall. It's total BS that ps4 fans try to play it off like they don't care, it's obvious u do, u are all on every titanfall article, video, beta preview, etc Posting how much u supposedly don't want it, lol as if that makes people believe u, Who cares if u want a game that ps4 does not get? It makes u look childish how badly u try to hide ur jealousy. It doesn't make the ps4 look less appealing. Get over ur selves. I'm also jealous of Quantum break and their other exclusives, so what. I'm sure they want Infamous and The Order as well. But let the fanboys deny they care about he game if it makes them feel better,p.
"It's total BS that ps4 fans try to play it off like they don't care, it's obvious u do, u are all on every titanfall article, video, beta preview, etc Posting how much u supposedly don't want it, lol as if that makes people believe u," You said it.
I'd rather have Dead Rising 3. But I can live without it.
Now this I can agree with
Why is it "denial" or "hate" when it's really just personal choice!?!? For every person that loves FPS's to death there are some that just don't get into them. Sure, there are some haters. But, not every person that won't miss TitanFall is one. Personally, I am not in to the competitive multiplayer games. I prefer co-op multiplayer. Now, I am intrigued by Quantum Break (conceptually). But, I am content with the fact that I chose a console that it won't be coming to. In the end, it's less of denial and hate and more of a maturity thing. There are immature people on both sides of this discussion (you might call them fanboys if you wish). They get a rise out of antagonizing one another. This, of course, is fed by the constant barrage of articles that come out about the game. Thus, creating an seemingly endless cycle of tit for tat arguments that can't and won't be solved...even when the game releases. Welcome to the interwebz where everyone knows everything and nobody is EVER wrong.
To Iceman: Dude I love that post! No one agreed or disagreed with you so far but me. I think it went over too many peoples heads lol... Spot on man...spot on!
I love both systems and they both have great games that any gamer would want to play
Aw man, I can't play TitanFall and match the experience found on Xbox one. I'm so glad I have a PC with an i7 processor that laughs this article off the face of the planet. :( Anybody with a PC from the last 4 years isn't breaking a sweat over this faked exclusive. Besides: Our spring is set.
Love the fact that Sony users are making it so obvious they want this game badly Buy it on pc if you want and help fund microsoft on that platform too :-)
How does that help fund Microsoft?
Ah and the self-indulged ignorance continues. Microsoft makes zero money off PC games. Zilch - unless they are publisher and mostly, unless you are buying it direct from them. EA is publisher, not MS. Still, you can play PC games without needing a copy of Windows using software such as CrossOver, and you don't even need to support or fund Microsoft to do so. In regards to your point, I didn't like Call of Duty, so why would I want this game?
Smh, they still don't get it do they? Microsoft will make money no matter which platform you decide to buy Titanfall for. Essentially, Microsoft is sitting back and saying "Ok, you own a 360 and haven't transitioned over to the Xbox One yet, but you wanna play Titanfall? Pay me. PC gamers, we got you covered. Pay me. Xbox One owners, we made this deal with EA just for you. Pay me. Ohhhh, Playstation owners aren't going to like this platform exclusivity, but there's a loophole. They'll buy it for the PC. PAY ME!!!!
Did you not just read my comment directly above the one you posted? Microsoft doesn't earn from PC gaming. If you have a PC or a laptop, for starters, you most likely bought it years ago and that profit was not related to Titanfall in the slightest to begin with. Microsoft doesn't earn from Titanfall being on PC. Who earns, in that situation, are those that want to play it on their mid-range PC from 5 years ago that can run games using the ancient Source engine without breaking a sweat, with better graphics, mods, community, value etc. Second, you don't need to pay Microsoft to get to play Titanfall.
