Today Titanfall launched in the UK, and Microsoft sent a quite enthusiastic press release explaining that things are going quite well across the Channel and in the US.
And...? Are we suppose to cheer for you?
You can Golf clap if you'd like. http://media0.giphy.com/med... @below is that guesstimate shared between both the PC and Xbox One or just the Xbox? Just curious as I bought the game, but for PC.
Very vague wording with this PR statement. So far, we can narrow it down to between 200k and 900k people who've bought the game so far. What's odd is, if they had sold more than half a million, they probably would have let us know about it. Any ideas, N4G?
the real question is why no "tf sold this many x1 " mentions? man oh man why do this kind of stat boasting is beyond me. a couple million playing kz 6 mil playing tlou, ....but, so what kz tf have come and are out...shuddup and announce a game....whats next? quantum break? show a new trailer..i mean ..
@kingtrash I don't think you formed a single complete sentence there. However, I am positive you did not make any intelligent points....
@kingthrash Well I would assume there are no mentions of "tf sold this many x1," because it has been 3 days since launch and a lot of retailers haven't even turned in any sales statistics yet... Give them some time, and one reason this statistic actually matters, whereas TLOU and killzone may have sold more copies(not real sure why you are throwing around TLOU numbers, as it was a GOTY winner and has been out for a long time) is the high user count simultaneously on microsofts servers. TLOU and likely KZ never had several hundred thousand players to support at once.
I thought it would reach a million. Guess not.
I wish there was an absolute way to determine what the sales would have been if it was on PS platforms too, and the price MS paid for exclusivity. I'm not trolling... I would just love to see that information hit the gaming media (if there was a possibility of actually getting that data).
@ThanatosDMC my thoughts exactly, you would think Titanfall would manage at least 1 million day1 sales. really surprised, guess the hype while strong is contained within a certain group and not catching on, in my home we have 4 gamers but I'm the only one who knows about Titanfall.
@thanatos and new monday, he is saying hundreds of thousands playing, as in all at once, not over time. Plus, I highly doubt with 500k preorders in just the US (as of sunday) that globally, and including day of sale, it would easily be one million. Boasting hundreds of thousands consistantly on is amazing, not even COD was able to pull that many users "playing" all at once.
@tomShoe One doesn't merely sell like COD because it is hyped to do so lol. It will still sell good though. I predict 650k.
"Xbox One is the best place to play Titanfall and there has never been a better time to join the new console generation." Promote this game to the DEATH MS! to the DEATH! like as if you actually owned the ip ;-)
fixed Titanfall: Microsoft Boasts "Hundreds of Thousands" Playing the "Most hyped Game of the Year" Hype and anticipation are 2 different things, just because you plaster adds for it and buy 10/10's all over the place doesn't make it anticipated, it makes it hyped. I lol'd my pants of at the best place to play TF is on XB1 bit.
I want to predict too. I predict it Sold well over a Million across X1 and PC day 1 with most sales going to X1, and that X1 would have easily exceeded 1 Million buy the end of this week, with more than 70,000 consoles sold this week and over 150,000 X1's sold, in NA alone, by month end.
@Bigpappy... I think Xbox One sales for the month will exceed 150k
@allastocata unfortunately that is not how MS works. Whenever they report their console sales it does not factor how many does the retailers have sold. To them they only report what they have "shipped" since to them that is considered "sold" where in theories is true but technically it is not an accurate figure. You new here about how they have been working?
Here's where my hate for Titanfall comes from. When announced the media hyped this game as the second coming of jesus.Then come release it's another fps.
Kopicha Sony do the exact same thing.
MS never use sales figures for there games, the games can sell over 1 million copies but they have never been the company to brag and mention sales. When did MS come out and say Halo 4 sold over 8 million units? MS talk about how many kills or deaths or Zombies people have killed. That's how they work. A game can sell but doesn't mean its being played. They would rather talk about how many gamers are playing there games then how many people have brought there games and sold them off.
"Titanfall: Most Anticipated Game of the Year" Well this is going to be a boring year...
@pappy So you're saying that TF has an almost 1 in 3(or 1 in 3.4 based on your console sale predictions) attach rate with the X1? Something that even Forza 5 hasn't even achieved yet despite being an Xbox staple franchise. All in less than a week? This game will sell more on 360 and PC than it does on the X1. Raw install base numbers just make that highly probable, and I doubt X1 TF numbers will be up there in the millions.
Serious, rather than play games on your $ony, you come here and be sad.... Edit: meant for the serious guy below. Sorry.
What's a $ony and how can I play on it?
So what are you doing on here?
I won't lie. I'm just wasting time waiting for MGS and InFamous to come out haha
$ony? You mean the company that just sold their ps4s for $400 a pop, while Microsoft is selling their stuff at $500???? The company that are selling the. Most powerful next gen console for cheap? Ooooooooookkkkkkkkaaaayyyyy... .. Next stupid insult please....
And yet you're here talking about Sony. Don't be a hypocrite.
What was that one bubble? Care to elaborate? No, guess not.
Just like every Infamous article getting hounded by MS fanboys trying their hardest to downplay how amazing it looks and plays based off of every preview (both professional and leaked early receivers).
there is no way this game is getting Game of the Year. I dont know what game will. But, it definitely will not be TitanFall. This game is already boring. I'm returning mine to Walmart tomorrow and trying to get a cash refund by saying i didn't know it required Xbox Live. I hope it works.
gee it is an online only multiplayer game how you didn't understand that is funny as it has been known for months
@mrkrispy, Gee, i know its an online only video game. I said the game is boring and i want to return it. I opened it, so i need to lie to get a cash refund so im going to say i didnt know it needed Xbox Live. Its funny how you didnt understand that. Reading comprehension classes have been around for ages.
Uh, there's a thing right on the front of the box that says it requires Xbox Live Gold. Good luck.
@tedakin, What's Xbox Live Gold? Ignorance is bliss. BTW, i highly doubt some old lady working the register at a local walmart is going to understand what "Xbox Live Gold" is. I'll tell her i bought the Gold, but i didn't know Xbox Live required the internet. Thanks for the luck, though. I hope i dont need it.
@ ifistbrowni Great, lie, cheat steal.... You are the first person I have seen on N4G admit to straight up lying. Just think if you can admit it to these people on n4g, stop being a punk and admit it to the one person in walmart who will deal with you. You are a disgusting individual.
@edward, but how would i get my cash refund then? Opened games should be eligible for return. I was going to trade it in to Gamestop, but then i remembered Walmart is lenient when it comes to returning things. So, instead of getting screwed over by a dis-honest company like gamestop, i'd rather be the one doing the screwing. You can take it personal, though. It's the internet and im talking about returning a game that i dont like. I see how it concerns you so much, so its completely understandable how you can seem so offended.
ifistbrowni Good on you bro don't listen to all these high and might sheep, if you think it's a turd then bloody well return it. People have been returning the whole XB1 console to JB Hifi stores in Australia due to the interface not working perfectly. I see no reason why you shouldn't be able to get your money back, at least you didn't buy it digital. And don't worry about what the XBones say, TF is the only thing they have that's better that poop. I'd be a very sad and board gamer if all I had was an XB1
it's GOTG in case you didn't notice!!!!!
@edward75 Why are you so angry ha.
"And...? Are we suppose to cheer for you?" You would be if it was on the PS4.
if it were truly the most anticipated game wouldn't it show in sales of the system?
Erm I log onto COD at launch and just on PS3 alone (the worst selling of the 2 consoles for COD) there is over 3 million players.. So hundreds of thousands for both xbone and PC isn't that great.. People will say this is down to less consoles sold but aren't people supposed to buy the console for this game? Plus theres 70 million STEAM (Im aware its not on STEAM) users meaning theres at least 70 million PC gamers.
Once Microsoft's Contract ends EA will bring this to Sony's Consoles
Probably. Mass Effect was an "Xbox Exclusive" and look how that turned out.
So was mgs.. What's your point?
@n4rc : The Metal Gear Sold series was NEVER exclusive; only a few titles were.
Yeah that contract ended because Bioware was bought out by EA voiding all contracts. So who is going to buy out EA?
so was ff for sony...his point 3rd party exclusives tend to become non exclusive over time. just as tf will. i doubt ea or respawn would sale it now. its another franchise that would make more as a non exclusive.
Most anticpated game of what ? For you perhaps. My most anticipated games just got delayed. The Division and now, The Witcher3. Now I've two left : TheOrder and Destiny.
You hit my top four as well. Great minds.... :)
For me personally it's The Order, Drakengard 3, and Mind Zero. Bayonetta 2 may get a place if they ever show anything more from it.:)
LOL, PR hype at it's best! Every-time NPD numbers becomes available M$ PR comes with another PR invention or is it distraction?
this is no different to when sony say similar things about their games
Great news ms it's well deserved. Titanfall is a great game. Keep the great exclusives coming.
Next I fear will be the endless stream of empty information. How many bots,titans were killed/blown up. how many times pilots wall ran and used their smart guns while jumping in the air doing 360s and drinking MT Dew......well...you get the picture. >.>
You're spot on, they have top 5 kills of the week already http://n4g.com/news/1473785...
You do realize that Microsoft didn't make that video right? This game selling well is a GOOD thing. You people need to stop trying to turn it into a negative thing.
Forgive me sega but I completly forgot about the infografs! I can picture the major walking up on stage with a large TF graph in the background.happly gloating about the number of bullets fired into walls. All to the music of 300.
100 million times the share button has been used. That was information that surely cured cancer.
...and doritos! you forgot Doritos! how can you forget the M$ online tweenage trifecta? COD, (now titanfall) Mt. Dew and Doritos? its the M$ Trinity man!
Sorry Show Im trying to forget the Doritos pope scandel...it was probably the lowest point for gaming.
Damn ms when you say stuff like the most anticipated game it makes you look cover and that's not what you need. It's not the most anticipated game. Metal gear will outsell titanfall and so will infamous on next gen Consoles. You guys talk too much shit, that's part of why your sales are no as good as they can be
The X1 has only been released in 13 countries so far. The X1 is doing just fine right now. Titanfall won like 80 awards in the past year. I would say it was highly anticipated.
Hundreds of thousands of people bought "the most anticipated game of the year" and I'm like "Can't wait for Infamous: Second Son" The Hyperbole and sensational caption to Titan Fall isn't necessary! The game is fun but critically I'd hardly call it the biggest game of the year... I feel that TF on XBO isn't gonna crack a million not this month... So far One Forza is cited as passing a million... Ryse, DR3, and KI haven't broken a million yet! It'll be interesting to see the platform for platform performance is. We know at least that right now the game sits between 200k-900k.
Titanfall won "80+" awards last year, one of them being "The most anticipated game of the year"…
I don't see why the hate is there. This was a big release for Microsoft and many, many companies boast when they have something good going for them. Microsoft and their console need to positive press. Anyway, personally, MY most anticipated game of 2014 is now that of 2015 and goes by the name of 'Witcher 3'.
My most anticipated game of 2014 WAS The Witcher 3, but now its Arkham Knight. Can't even fathom how awesome that game will be!
because n4g is blind and believe there should only be able one console.
It's not Microsoft i have a problem with. I ain't no fanboy. My problem is that it's another FPS that is getting all the hype on a Microsoft console. It's like they have no room for praise/hype for any other genre.
Infamous is hyped. 1886 is hyped. Purely the existence of another Uncharted is hyped. Drive Club is hyped. Bayonetta 2, Project Cars, Star Citizen, X, Quantum Break. Not sure why you think that.
