"Titanfall's greatest secret is that it's actually quite conservative. Judged by the standards of other blockbusters, it's a series of surgical strikes rather an all-out bombardment - upping the ante in places, dialling things back in others." [OXM]
I guess titanfall is doing mediocre sales because I haven't heard that it sold over a million on xbox one in one day or two days or anything about how great it's doing.its still early anyway but I can't wait to see sales stats after a week. I like titanfall and think it's a proper shooter that I would prefer playing over cod but I'll wait for it to come to ps4 since I don't want an xbox one due to all the rubbish I dealt with on xbox 360 and the rubbish Microsoft tried doing on the xbox one
The only way the original Titanfall will show up on PS4 is if EA breaks the law. It's contractually locked down for the Xbone. The (hypothetical) sequel is fair game, though.
There might be parts in the contract that allow them to port it if the sales don't make them the money they expected. There is also the possibility of making Titanfall Super Awesome Mega Edition and get around it that way. Like how FF13 versus isn't anymore PS exclusive because it's now called FF15.
Titanfall 2 could easily get lost in the middle of the many PS4 exclusives in development. EA have shot themselves in the foot with this one, they could have built early momentum by being on the xbone and also on the top selling next gen console on the market the PS4!
Without knowing the exact specifics of the contractual agreement, you can't just simply say they will 'break the law'. There could be all types of conditions built into it that may allow for such a scenario. For instance, something like if they allow it to be on PS consoles, EA has to pay MS some specific amount, etc. I'm not saying that this game would ever come to PS consoles. I'm just saying that lawyers and businessmen usually include smart language in contracts to protect their clients interests.
i would of expected EA to put a clause in,saying it must sell X amount by a certain time to stay excluive and then if it dont they will release a TITANFALL EXODUS (or something to make it slightly diff)
when will people admit how SENSELESSLY easy and lack of skill required to play this game??? Guns with no recoil, braindead easy-to-kill grunts and specters, continuous roof campers, this game REALLY is not all that these hypers have hyped it up to be.
Same was said about original mass effect but EA bought the rights back from MS. Could do the same with TF but depends on if MS would do that.
"It's contractually locked down for the Xbone" Unless you have seen the wording of the contract, this isn't a qualified statement.
You read the agreement?
"I like titanfall its a proper shooter" Battlefield and counter strike are real shooters.... not titanfall XD
They're all real shooters, just different kinds that promote different varieties of gameplay. Better to say some are more casual than others because they're easier to pick up and play, or to use a relatively current industry buzz word… accessible.
It's really not hard to eclipse COD in anything other then sales.
It would also be hard to eclipse COD in the number of screaming children.
Most CoD players are too young to remember when CoD was good. I bet 80% of Ghosts players never played CoD 4.
You know what's funny. CoD was good when Modern Warfare launched. And you know what's funny about that. It was 6v6........
the thing is if it did come to ps4 now i hope they take the port from pc version and not the gimped bone version
Its easy mode trash. Leave it on the 720bonio.
Casuals are playing titanfall the hardcore are playing dark souls 2! @corpser I didn't say either was...?
Can't play either of these on ps4 lol
Where ARE the tf sales numbers btw? Figured we'd seen a midnight sales number at least... SOMETHING.
maybe they're waiting the launch on the other countries
