Titanfall: Microsoft Boasts "Hundreds of Thousands" Playing the "Most Anticipated Game of the Year"

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. (PC, TitanFall, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

@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?
Kingthrash360  +   257d ago
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 ..

@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.
ThanatosDMC  +   257d ago
I thought it would reach a million. Guess not.
guitarded77  +   257d ago
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).
NewMonday  +   257d ago
@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.
nicksetzer1  +   257d ago
@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.
Eonjay  +   257d ago
@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.

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.
Bigpappy  +   257d ago
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.
Eonjay  +   257d ago
@Bigpappy...

I think Xbox One sales for the month will exceed 150k
kopicha  +   257d ago
@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?

Azzanation  +   257d ago
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.

rainslacker  +   256d ago
@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.

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.

ifistbrowni  +   257d ago
@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.

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

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.

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.

we like multiplayer shooters. There are a lot of other games that MS promotes on their consoles that are not shooters. Xbox 360 had a lot of great game on Xbox live downloadable that were cheap I should know I have about 140 games on my hard drive and 5 on Xbox one.

Ps is full of shooters too. You may not count them but that's what they are; uncharted is a shooter, last of us is a shooter etc....There are a lot of games that have you killing endless amount of enemies even if you using a blade or magic.

This is easily the most enjoyable shooter I've played multi-player wise. I'm not usually a competitive shooter but this one hits the sweet spot for me.

But it is certainly fun nonetheless.

I'm personally between games. Just finished Macross on the PC-Engine and can't decide what to play next. Probably gonna finish off Lightning returns though, kinda got distracted with work and a bad cold. Maybe start South Park or something, but not sure if I'll be able to finish it before Infamous comes out, so perhaps DuckTales remastered. I tend to be kinda slow on picking up a new game since I can never decide what's going to interest me for the next week or so and I hate stopping games mid way through.

It's really strange.

We hear how this is the "biggest title of the year" and "destroys anything on PS4", but if this were true and the hype justified the amount MS is putting into this game, it should have already cracked a million.

Though it's not even MS you should be asking that question to. it's EA who are currently sobbing their guts up that they have missed out on a massive install base, and deciding what the next move is for this franchise.

Microsoft was going to spend a metric s**t-ton on this game regardless - the future of their console as it stands, rests firmly on the shoulders of these Titans, so that's unsurprising, but results aren't showing that it's pulling them above the competition. It's going to be harder than ever for MS to seal this franchise as an exclusive.

If Titanfall isn't the one to match expectations and really drive the Xbox One, then only Halo can. And that's not coming until 2015.

I imagine EA isn't really crying. They probably got a pretty good chunk of change from MS for exclusivity. One can assume that since PS4 sales are roughly double that of X1, that it would sell roughly double the number of copies on the PS4.

Long term EA probably wasn't hampered too bad, because PC and 360 will make up a bulk of the sales anyways. The fact it went exclusive probably made this title more desirable to Xbox owners anyways. Exclusive titles tend to get more hype for new IP's...although typically those are 1st party games, so who knows.

It took close to a month before we got any data from Sony on sales. And this guy did not say how many unit have been sold let alone the total across systems. You any your buddies are having another one of those premature whatchamacallits.

A million people having bought the game would have been a more impressive stat than the vague one that he gave. He simply couldn't boast a million sold because it isn't true.

ANYONE following the game industry knows that (unless it's a major title like a GTA game that sells like 10 million off the bat) they always announce a million sold. Just watch; they will announce a million on the exact day that the figures come into their office (whether that takes another couple of days, weeks, or a month).

FFS, he didn't even brag about "simultaneous players" numbers.

Microsoft puts out a press release boasting about a great game and everyone calls them trash. It's sad. They can't do anything right, even when they do things right.

Good news.

A good start for a new IP. Just wait till it becomes a household name.

Isn't destiny the most anticipated game of the year?
DigitalRaptor  +   257d ago
It definitely deserves to be more anticipated than Titanfall, but the reality is, the majority of people follow manufactured hype rather than anything else that is of more substance.

Enter the PS4... the irony.

I outta know, I bought one, it reminds me of the Wii, all hype and no substance.
DigitalRaptor  +   257d ago
Wii had great games. Explain...
