Microsoft Corp. has a lot riding on Titanfall, the new game from developer Respawn Entertainment, the creators of the blockbuster Call of Duty series.
I guess we'll find out in the following weeks and months to come. @below: yup, saw a couple of people walking out with some bundles at my launch. The Collectors editions were freaking huge though. I have to admit I was alittle jealous while they walked out. I was only able to scoop up a regular copy.
For the record I know 2 people who bought it in order to play Titanfall now, not later. Lolz @ MariaHelFutura fighting the good fight yet again! Fishermenofwar, what you talking about, what troll? BTW, this one game doesn't have to justify spending $500, there are PLENTY more exclusives coming in the next few months... heavy hitters too, Halo, Quantum Break, Sunset Overdrive, it all adds to the value, not to mention all the other things xb1 is capable of, even Boogie2988/Francis is sold on it, that's saying something!
you poor troll...He meant we will have to see in weeks and months how well it will sell.....Sigh
Availability on 360 and PC will help keep it from being a system seller. I for one got it on PC. That being said I just don't believe one game can justify a $500.00 system purchase especially when I just spent $400.00 on one just 3/4 months ago.
"Availability on 360 and PC will help keep it from being a system seller. I for one got it on PC.

Exactly the rumours 360 version looks almost the same as xbone version and its why MS delayed it and has released no screens of it just tells a story by itself..
The questions isn't whether titanfall is a good game or not, review scores are almost 9 across the board I'm sure respawn are happy with the terrific job they did. The question is how many people are so impatient that they can't wait 2 weeks for the 360 release that they will rope 500 on the xbox one?
And on top of that, considering we're talking about a game pushed by EA & Microsoft, I'm sure a lot of these reviews are..."profitable". 10/10 for an online-only, lack of variety of modes, multiplayer-only game w/bots & 792p. Ain't that a B...*smGDh*
this^^^ tf = microscope removed great game but as i predicted all flaws ignored.
@gamer1982 It won't be a system seller, but i don't know many people that are aware of it being on 360 so that might help sales until the 360 version comes into light.
thats a bit niave to think people who own a 360 dont know about titan fall. if they don't then they are complete idiots. i own a ps4, i love it, i would of bought a x1 for titanfall, but because i own a 360 i will stick with it on that console, the only time i will buy an x1 is when halo is out and hoepfully by that time the price will have dropped even more..
Titanfall is on the front page of the 360 dashboard. Pic is so big, u can't miss it.
I offer the game to customers all the time and ask have they checked it out.....you would be surprised ha.
I can't wait to pick up my CE of it tomorrow morning!
I have a severe feeling of Deja Vu with this article...
@ this point we all know this game is going to be big on Xbox One all other platforms Xbox related are also going to enjoy. Kudos to MS for locking up a great Title to enjoy on my new next gen system.
I'm going to have some hearty chuckles when the 360 version of this game is released and it looks the same as the xbone version. Some hearty chuckles indeed.
The bots are dumb
The Spectre's are pretty smart. If you hack them, they'll follow you and provide cover fire/distractions.
Titanfall is a game changer and a system seller
Really? If MS thought so they wouldn't hold back the 360 version.
It would have helped sell systems regardless of what day it came out. Hell the 360 verison will help sell 360s too, its all money back to microsoft. This game, if sold by hype alone, would push systems out the door.
You do realize it's a clever business move. All the great reviews along with the massive advertising campaign will make a lot of 360 owners actually make the jump to the Xbox One. They already are on Xbox live if they are going to play it on 360 & if they are thinking of upgrading to X1, then this is a game to make them decide to do it, especially if they have to wait to play it on the 360.
If it was it wouldn't be on 360 or PC. The PC version is also superior. Higher res/framerate. Uses azure. Can get bought for $30. Doesn't require a powerful PC to play. It's not a system seller at all. It's not an exclusive.
don't forget that titanfall is on 3 seperate systems....so which system will it sell?
system seller for some people, perhaps. game changer? not even. haha looks like a good enough game shame i got bored super fast. STILL LOOKING FOR A BLOPS2 REPLACEMENT.
@josephayal Sorry But Youre wrong!
I don't know about that. Wasn't there a article that said it has sold a ton of Xbox One's? Not sure what the number was
Yep,keep saying that to your self. This is a game all the fanboys waited for. After all of the begging for it to be on the ps4. Get a gaming rig or sell out your buddies and buy a xboxone. It must burn...
360.. 720p.. Enough said
lol. sell out your buddies. that's funny. Hope no one other than you are that shallow that they think you are a sell out for buying xbone for Titan Falll. I don't have a xbone but I do have a PS4 and a gaming PC and will be getting the game on PC. I could care less what other people do with there money.
You must have not be reading the hate fanboys spout online. I share your sentiment minus the snarky comment.
Lol you don't need a gaming rig. The requirements are for PCs built ages ago lol
yeah...the beta on my PC was laughable...never dipped below 100fps on 'insane' detail 1080 with 8x MSAA haha...thats with a weak A10 6800k cpu (igpu disabled) but pretty good R9 280x... same system can't keep 60fps averages in BF4 without mantle (with mantle its great though)...TF is very easy on system resources, it seems... I liked it, but it was stupid easy...and I felt like i 'finished' the game just in beta...so skipping for now, may pick it up later on when the price drops and more content is released...
I love how this review doesn't actually say anything about the gameplay or graphics. Such a generic review. This review is a throwaway and not even worth noting as it is reviewing it based on future speculations.
FPS, multiplayer, extremely positive reviews. Yeah certainly doesn't sound like it's got system selling potential... If any new IP was going to sell units. It's Titanfall.
I agree...but honestly, i can't count how many friends, relatives, and co-workers that have simply said 'it looks fun, but i do not want an Xbox One'...Ms's marketing is working in that a lot of people think the game is only available on the new platform...but, at least in some cases, thats not a good thing...
Buy an overpriced, under-performing console for an unoriginal game with dated graphics and mechanics? Hah, not a chance thanks.
Actually no one is forcing it on you.
What's with all the hate...u go in a tf article to talk shit???...I'm looking forward to this game regardless of the inferior console...if I cared so much about top of the line...I would be a PC gamer...I have all three current gen consoles because I'm a gamer...not a pathetic fanboy like yourself...titanfall,mgsv, and infamous all in march.. Standby for epic month
@ dynasty What's sad is that you are actually wasting time here putting up comments. No one is forcing you to buy anything and truly no cares what you think.
people are so petty when they can't have something. I hope the same 'negative' reception doesn't come to infamous: second son when the embargo is lifted.
Who can't have this game?
the people commenting negatively and the blind
ANY computer built post 2007 will run this game lol. Anyone can play it. Unless all you have is a ps3/4 and no computer at all or a 360. It's not hard for everyone to play this game. Hell. My dad is playing it on his 4 year old $500 laptop at 900p lol
Microsoft has a huge hit on their hands. If this doesn't move consoles then MS will have to wait for Halo and Gears of War.
Titanfall is definitely a decent game. But its too cheesy for my liking. I wish they would have made the titans a little more serious and rewarding, seems like you can only last about 30 seconds once you get in a titan.
If games like Halo and Call of Duty can be system sellers for Xbox I think Titanfall has a superb chance of being a system seller. The reviews are great and it brings something fresh to the multiplayer genera.
I'm not sure that one game can ever really be considered a console seller to the core market. It is more about the entire library. Titanfall + DR3 + Forza 5 + Killer Instinct... All MS exclusive and all top notch... Not at all disappointed with my purchase so far...
@ Gamer666 Having a line up like Dead Rising 3 Forza 5 RYSE Son of Rome Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare Project Spark (Beta) TitanFall Killer Instinct Kinect Sports Rivalries In 6 months is a great line up add Multiplayer games coming or released like Watchdogs, Thief, Wolfenstein the new order, Murder Soul Suspect, The Evil Within, Destiny, Batman Arkham Knight, just to name a few make the Xbox a great platform to play games on.
That's 2 negative articles posted so far about Titanfall from Maria the Xbox hating troll.
Try focusing on the article itself, not who submits it. That's irrelevant.
Yeah it doesn't matter unless it's someone who hates the PS4 and is just trolling the PlayStation community here right?
Honestly, I think it will sell many consoles, especially in America.
i am prob gonna pick this up some time for pc. think it looks good. but playing some tbs games now and they are taking my time up. what i see of this though looks good. hopefully i will get it a tad cheaper also if i wait a month or 2.
I'm sure the game is going to be a big success for Microsoft. Everything I have seen from Titan Fall and listening to others who have played Titan Fall have nothing but praise. Titan Fall is the first ACTUAL Next-Gen shooter to come out that looks amazing. Zampella and his team went through a really tough time with Activision and trying to get back up on their feet. This is one developer who deserves the support. I wish them nothing but luck. I Hope Titan Fall becomes a great success story for Respawn Entertainment. I'm looking foreword to picking up an Xbox One to play Titan Fall and some of the other great tittles that are on the platform.
MariaHelFutura strikes again. Going to need a lot more stories to catch up with all the Titanfall is great stories. On Topic: I don't think it will be a system seller as its available on PC and 360. It will definitely give the X1 a boost though and all the good reviews will help with general publics perception of the X1. As long as Microsoft follow up on hype with some more X1 exclusives (Quantum Break, Sunset Overdrive) they will be in a better position by the end of year. Hopefully Infamous SS gets great reviews as well as the more competition the better for everyone!
It's pretty obvious at this point that MariaHelFutura is a mod. The first clue is that MariaHelFutura can still post while others get banned. The second is anyone who calls the guy out gets removed as "off topic" or "trolling".
Underground overground, hercling free. Those enemy mechs scare the sh!t outta me. Making good use of the things that we find. Bloody great guns and proximity mines. (Sing it to the Wombles theme tune)
It's not a system seller. It's on 2 other platforms. 360 and PC anyone?
meh, I'll try it out on 360 ... good way to try it out cheap to start with.
Keep them coming mariahelfutura, noyhing nothing will overshadow the success of Titanfall.
Titanfall will be a great game, No doubt. But it will have its rise and fall and eventually make its way to PS4. Now i am a big Microsoft fan, always have been and always will be. I agree with this article Titanfall will not be a console seller!. Microsoft is falling behind Sony, But Sony does not have the the multiplayer franchises that will attract more players in the future. That's where Microsoft will take the lead. They started off weak but will finish strong with the big franchises like Halo and Gears of war. Kinda like the turtle and the rabbit race. the rabbit(Sony) thought he was Mr. Allthat thinking he already won. but here comes slow and steady taking his time, the turtle(Microsoft). he ends up winning the race.thats why xbox will always be the superior console they take there time to here what the fans want.
Once the dust settles, the main thing is that Titanfall 2 should be a really good game, fixing the mistakes in this game. It is sad when a games AI is worse than pacman on easy and the response from gamers is that was the intent....after the whole power of the cloud AI. Which is it? Due to the whole...it's cool to hate CoD mentality kids have, this game is riding an unwarranted media wave. I'm glad it is a good game, but that is about as far as it goes. We will see in December how many are still online with all the other FPSs to come this year.
I laugh at the people that are complaining about res as I sit here playing my 360 with a ps4 and xbox one here southpark is great and I don't care what res it is you know
Took respawn years to make this game people should show some respect not dissect the game
If you skim through the actual article what he did was take the generic "cod with mechs" comment, fill it with fluff and slap a sensational title on it with no facts whatsoever proving otherwise. The definition of clickbait my friends....
As long as I am entertained it is no matter to me what numbers it does , mech up see you there.
Tell that to the charts as of last week the Xbox One took back the number 1 spot in america and the UK.Also the titanfall bundle is number 1 on amazon and titanfall for the Xbox One is the number 1 pre order game with over 650,000 in the U.S alone and over a million pre ordered with the other countrys added.Yea sony fanboy you might want to stop these childish pathetic articles they really are a joke
Right now, the fanboys of both sides are coming out of their caves. Sony doesnt need to disrupt anything for Titanfall to take away from its real impact. Its going to do it all on its own. Sonys fans will cause that disruption and Microsoft fanboys are out in full force to protect their pride. Unfortunately, the only one that really benefits from this is EA. According to VGChartz, Xbox One outsold PS4 in the States this past week as gamers gear up for Titanfall. Its all Xbox One has and will have for a while. So, how is it good and bad for Microsoft then? Its Xbox 360. Microsoft will make money off of last gen sales but, this isnt the boost Xbox One needed. PlayStation gamers and consumers are remaining patient. They're waiting on Sony and putting off Microsoft. Tax return season is all thats saving Xbox One. People have some extra money to spend but PlayStations are hard to come by and Xbox Ones are not. For PlayStation fans, this isnt difficult. Xbox gamers in support of their console want this to be but, it wont. Why? PC sales. PlayStation gamers can play on their PC they already have and save a lot of money. This was Microsofts downfall. This needed to be completely Xbox One exclusive. And we dont even know whats exactly coming from Sony. We havent yet seen Uncharted, more of The Order and still waiting for InFamous to hit store shelves. Sonys shadow and mystiscism are part of what is still disrupting Xbox and Titanfall. Gamers will get it on PC. EA really did bet on the wrong horse. Theyll sell a lot on PC, but their auidience and income could have been much better. Their bias will lead to their demise. Im glad to see Xbox One gamers have finally got something to play. Ive had a PS3 and got the PS4 and have always felt it was a greater investment. Im having to wait a little longer for the boom, but a storm is coming, Sonys first party is astounding and I got a Wii U instead of Xbox One. Congrats and Happy Gaming to my fellow gamers on all platforms.
