In the eve of Titanfall's launch I am going to talk about the game's exclusivity deal and will tell you why I think it won’t help any of the participating parts very much.
Author seems upset he may have chosen the wrong console. A lot of buyers remorse happening today it seems
Just wait til the 21st.
Infamous is not my type of game.
@ Polow Why would he have buyers remorse when the system he purchased is now worth almost double the purchase price? That's like saying someone has buyers remorse because he bought a house that is now "very sought after". That makes no sense buddy. On Topic. I think Microsoft's problems may extend beyond just TitanFall if the game fails to have the impact that Microsoft is hoping for. Something similar happened to Nintendo and the Wii, and now the Wii U is paying for it. See, if TitanFall is nothing but a blip on the radar, then Microsoft will have cemented themselves in a vicious cycle. They have made it so obvious that they have so much riding on Titanfall, that everyone and their moms are now waiting to see how it performs and what that means for Xbox One. If it fails, and by failing I mean if it doesn`t move a lot of Xbox Ones, then Microsoft`s ability to secure exclusives will be non existent. And they will be faced with the fact that Multiplatform games tend to perform better on the PS4, meaning that almost every multiplatform game almost becomes an exclusive for the PS4, similar to how COD was advertised for the 360 primarily. That, among other factors such as price is what might predict the Xbox one`s fate this generation. My opinion of course.
If you like games, inFamous IS your type of game.
@ Polow Haha, you have got to be kidding me.
Haha, the scary thing is he's not. He thinks everyone who bought a PS4 is an impatient immature kid, who only likes FPS games.
Haha Nice try, remorse over buying a cheaper and stronger console?? and has more games incoming throughout its life? right...
Lol. Titanfall isn't even exclusive.
Yeah why do they keep saying that?
Why inFamous exclusivity won’t help anyone involved very much fixed
If you're going to adopt that mindset, you don't deserve those bubbles. Bubbled down for immature.
Lol never seen so much hate about a game being exclusive before. Just shows how much people are mad its not on Ps4
really?, lol its only a exclusive because the x1 needs this game to sell its system, i hope it do well bro because when sony can match demand it might get tough. lol im speakn facts..
Can you back up these facts? if not get out. Every system needs exclusive you herp derp xD sounds like your just mad too that your stuck with Killzone
Seems like you're just mad in general. You forget the fact that this is also on PC.. Most gamers nowadays own a gaming PC and Titanfall is not that high end in the graphics department to need the best PC either.. So any PS4 fan who really wants to play Titanfall will just play it on PC. Not much to it. The funny thing is I bet even Respawn right now wishes they went with Sony instead.. I could almost put my life on it they are so regretting being with Microsoft at the moment regardless of what they say. It isn't like they would ever come out and express that anyway even if it was what they thought. PS4 is selling more everywhere and selling more software on its system compared to the Xbox One by a huge margin. Respawn would no doubt make more money being on Playstation, they aren't stupid and they clearly see what is happening around them.. How could they not regret it. It is also a known fact that the game would just run better on the PS4 also as much as I hate to even bring that up but it is true. I am not interested in the game that much anyway as it reminded me too much of CoD after playing the beta on PC. So I could careless what system it is on honestly. I tried it, just wasn't for me, it is better than CoD that is for sure but still feels very similar and for me the mechs just didn't give me enough feeling of actually being in one, I just felt taller and less mobile but still almost felt like I was the same, running around gunning as if I wasn't in one. Besides catching bullets, ejecting or firing missiles, the mechs just didn't feel like mechs to me. Fun taking them down though I just didn't find it to be anymore fun piloting them compared to running around and jumping willy nilly. Sure I will get tons of disagrees for that last bit but oh well.. Just how I feel, you can enjoy the game all I want. I am not stopping you.
metal gear solid 4 ring a bell? oh yeah that's right selective memory much lol.
i think this game looks good. but i got no hate for it i can get it on pc. i wanted mass effect games, gears of war and alans wake on ps consoles way more then i want this. took awhile but got mass effect on it. then got alans wake on pc. and could of got gears on pc but didnt. so with my pc and ps4 im a happy camper.
i think the ps4 and pc are the best combination i dont miss any games. with a xbox and pc i would miss all the first party games with sony. i got no hate for xbox though i had a xbox. and almost got a 360 a ton of times. but i put the money for it in my pc instead to run the same games i coulda got on xbox.
Well it's gonna help MS, right?
Lol Hate for what?! I don't understand This is Resistance 2 (87),Resistance 1 (86) , Killzone 3(85) level on metacritic I think Xbots all around the world are dropping pants out of exaggeration coz they are getting a decent exclusive after the extinction of dinos For Playstation fans 87 on meta critic is nothing special The game is going to be great though.......just like Resistance 2 :D
So, you think that play resistance is as fun as play TITANFALL? You have to know that does reviews are not 10 because of a Single player campaign miss or the graphics which for me are good enough. I pay to be entertain and if TITANFALL is so entertain that after I played the beta I could not play battlefield anymore.......then is a 10 for ME! Try the game and forget about Metacritics and "graphics" and you will feel what is to be entertain......but this is just an advice......because at the end of the day.....YOU CAN DO WTF YOU WANNA DO!!!
Don't get me wrong. I like Titanfall. Resistance is much better though. I'm sorry. I just think both the campaign and multi-player portions of the series are incredible. Resistance 3 has one of the best campaigns of last generation. R1 and R2 were innovative. They were pure fun. Titanfall is a good game. Don't compare them.
@wearelegion You say dont compare the games yet you started by saying resistance is better...that is a comparison right there lol try harder fan boy. If titanfall can match resistances metacritic(who the fuck cares about metacritic anyway?) by just being a multiplayer that must mean its better right? lol
Titanfall is online multiplayer only. To overcome the lack of single player and still get the reviews it is getting is quite a feat. You really can't compare it with review scores of games like Resistance and Killzone.
Yup... Which makes me wonder why there is still discussion if this game will fail. The game is unbelievably hyped and tons of reviews just poured in that are all positive, if not super positive.
The new MGS game takes 2 hours to beat. Does it deserve a 10 because of what they put into those 2 hours?
the fact resistance has those scores just shows how broken review scores are....and yes i own all systems including master race PC
LOL at the fact that you had to go back to last gen to find PS games on par with Titanfall.
so exclusive games don't help? That is just stupid.
Xbox wins, flawless victory!
against what? my PC, and which xbox wins the Xbone or the 360? Maybe you can reply with one of your other accounts...one which has more bubbles.
The xb1 is not selling well in countries where there is a great awareness about the nsa and gchq surveillance scandal. It's not all about the price. I'd still have switched from 360 to ps4 if they were both 349 quid.
This game is good for Xbox. The social media attention surrounding this game good or bad is only further enhancing the hype. I know people that have bought an xbox one for it.
@alb1899 I played the beta too & enjoyed a lot Will buy the game too.....on 360 Coz well.....graphix are not important,right?! :D Was just pointing out That 87 is nothing special or megaton like bots are pretending Choose PS & you'll be shitting pants on 94,95,96 Not 87 lol
But fps matters
If resolution was the only factor to judge a game on, I would buy it for my PC. My friends I play with most online are buying it for their Xbox One's which is what I am doing. Choose PS and you won't play Titanfall at all. Looking at Metacritic, what game are you playing on the PS4 that is 94, 95, 96? Flower is the highest rated at 91. http://www.metacritic.com/b...
Graphics don't matter, well... save some money and buy it for you 360, or your 7 year pc now worth $150.
Save some money and buy it for my 360? I wasn't aware the 360 version cost less than the Xbox One version. It will be a bit of a challenge playing with my Xbox One friends with my 360, but if you truly think that is the best way to go... As for my PC, it's a little newer than 7 years and your guesstimate may be a little generous for a PC built in 2007. My Radeon HD6950 still sells new for more than a PS4. I'm guessing it's still able to run new games.
well if microsoft plays their cards right at gdc and e3 i do believe sales of xbox one well increase.
Not being a troll but what do you think MS will do or has to do to get things rolling.
Price cut to $350. Dump Kinect if necessary...because let's be honest...it's not catching on with devs any better than the original Kinect. The fact that Titanfall, Microsoft's flagship game, doesn't even use it says it all. Unfortunately they may be selling at a loss at $350 even without Kinect, due to inexplicably poor design decisions.
There is a relatively small pool of consumers that pay attention to things like GDC and E3. Most of them have pretty much made a decision and are just waiting for their particular game or games of choice to drop on each system. The mass market, where the other 150 million people live, will take a lot more convincing than some techno-babble to buy either one.
Across the board Titanfall will sell very well , all concerned will make money and players will enjoy the game. Anyone that only owns a PS4 will have to go play it at a mates house…. and the circle of life goes on.
the problem is that MS arrived at the last minute and reaped the rewards of other peoples efforts. Respawn did was not involved in the negotiations, what a low class company EA and MS are is proved
You guys spend more time typing on your key board & debating like politicians instead of playing! Power to the players, fckers! ;-)
IMO both parties lost in the deal. EA for being greedy and makin it an exclusive while neglecting 80+million PS3 fanbase and the 6+million on PS4. MS for not securing it primarily to the X1. Like that saying says "You reap what you sow". Hope all people are enjoying TF :)
what does XONE owners gain by making the game xbox PC only? If the game released in PS4 the same freaking game Xone owners are getting soon was going to be available anyway. This was MS at its best, turning what they touch to greed. Respawn, as good as they may be, got screwed. Is like Bungie's Destiny becoming a PS4 exclusive, is a WTF situation. Thr Respawn guys left Activision eager to show the gaming community what they are all about and got limited in their reach thanks to MS greed and EA stupidity
They didn't have money to complete the project M$ helped them by providing servers & probably funded them for the exclusivity deal But it could be timed exclusive like Bioshock,GTA Episodes & Mass Effect for all we know Only time will tell Best part is you don't need to drop $500 to play just this one game (no other reason to buy inferior specd turd box) One can play on old 360 system
I'm excited for tomorrow but is not because Titanfall, is because Dark Souls 2.
