As the world prepares for the massive Titanfall launch, Rory can't help but worry about EA's "golden" publishing touch.
Think if TF has launch issues, prolonged ones, or if it just fails to move XB1s MS is going to be the one to riot.
It's running on MS's servers, not EA's. There were some issues in the opening couple of days of the beta, but everything seems to have been spot on for the last few days. Bodes well for a smooth launch, but who knows what those pesky DDOS folks will do.
Light the torches and grab the pitchforks!!!
ya its not like the pc markets worried about if this game hits or not ms on the other hand need this to be big enough hit to move its console.... IMO stupid to put all that money into getting it exclusive even if launch is golden it only appeals to the online fps fans.... not the biggest market and one with lots of competition.
haha, what!? how many copies has the the Call of duty franchise sold over the last decade or so? If Titanfall can get quarter of the COD fans they will be doing very well. I have 2 friends who are buying their XB1's now instead of waiting for a price drop solely for Titanfall... they are casual gamers... this game will help MS in a big way! @calydom Not just Titanfall. - Project Spark, Quantum Break, Sunset Overdrive, Halo, Gears of war, Below,D4 to name but a few.
You know 2 ppl that are going to spend $610+ to play a multiplayer shooter.... Smart guys *rolls eyes*
2 people who are "casual gamers" that are spending $610 to "casually" play titanfall... (rolls eyes indeed)
Yeah I call BS, they'd just play it on the much cheaper 360 if they're "casual" gamers
If this is all they have in Titanfall being the savior of the Xbone. Microsoft is in some trouble.
I would not hold my breath for it to be otherwise
Woah Woah Woah, we can all agree that ps4 is starting to look better than ps2 in relation to sales (beginning, not lifetime obviously) but saying the Xbox needs saving is a huge lie. Sure, it isn't winning but it's not Wii U neither. It's selling well. Since when is not being number 1=to trouble? Ps3 wasn't number one forever and look at the how it turned the tables. It isn't a sprint and this Gen barely begun. We are looking at the demos of what's going to be the best games of all time on the next Gen consoles.
What's going to happen to a product that started out rocky, then found some success, but lost it again. All the while losing millions year after year and the only thing that's keeping it afloat is a big check book.
Xb1 does not need saving, tf will do good, I too have friends picking up tf and a few picking up xb1 just for tf. Tf wont surge xb1 infront of ps4 but will open peoples eyes to what system has the fun games.
You can't say Xbox has the better games on here! are you crazy?
I don't see Titanfall being a flop or a mess in any way. So far its getting good feedback from the beta players and a lot of hype from casual players too. I know quite a few people who are looking at getting a xbox one for this game and quite a few avid ps fans picking up a 360 just for this game too. If done right by Microsoft and EA it could give Gears a run for its money on becoming the 2nd biggest name on the xbox brand but I don't see it being as big as Halo.
I play the beta in increments of an hour to two hours a time, just cause the two levels in the beta get tiresome, but man tf is a blast, all my buddies i showed it love it. Its fun, i would like to see a mode where its 8v8 pilot mode, the parkour is amazing. I been in situations where i chase people around the map, parkour and jet packing so dope. Im so pumped to see the other maps when the game releases.
