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.
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.
@RDF ...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.
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. We don't live in Japan were they have dating Sims and porno games.
What's wrong with it being on a MS console? why is that such a problem, would you not have a problem with it if it was on Sonys console?
@Harmy666, i don't know if you will see this but that isn't what i am saying at all so i don't know where you have got that from. What i am saying is that Microsoft's most hyped games are more often than not an FPS, it's boring, i don't care what console it is on, i'm not interested in the game. And like i said, i ain't no fanboy, i would love to have a PS4, Xbox One and a Wii U if i could afford them all.
Positivity is impossible to attain on gaming news websites. You could slap them happy if you wish but that would be mean
Well there were "hundreds of thousands" pre-orders, so that would make sense.
They still find specific wordings to completely ignore that it comes to the 360 as well and to make it look like it's X1 and PC only. The statement was very non descriptive in how well it sold so far.
If this was just on X1 I would be a bit upset being a Sony Fan but its no biggy being released on 2 different platforms.
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. It may not be for everyone because I know plenty of people are campaign and story focused and after completing the campaign twice.... I still have no idea what the heck it's about. But it is certainly fun nonetheless.
Ditto on the campaign. Just gives me a reason to hate the other team of real players even more than I already do. Really fun after u get into it. I hope they do some dlc with different scenarios from all over the galaxy not just 1 small war. I don't care if each mission has its own story that's cool. Haha
Titanfall can smd right now. How in the hell do you have online only and have every game with at least 2 people lagging. I don't want to hear it's the weekend and there are a lot of people on and the game just released. Those are excuses for not having a product that works properly. I'm tired of giving my money to companies that can't deliver. It was fine until Friday.
Since when does Titanfall have a campaign? Last I knew it had a story peppered into the online environment to create a faux campaign..
I didn't think titanfall would be this good. It is so Fun and I love Last Titan standing mode. Just robot on robot war. Good job Microsoft I've convinced my coworkers to try xbox and they all just thanked me at work today because of how much fun titanfall is haha. Feels good!! Bout to join a party with them now!
Lol..nice one.I had to travel just a week before launch with my boss and some coleagues on a stupid work trip so i havent been able to get my hands on it yet but that hasnt stopped my brother and his friends from going ahead without me,its obvious theyve been having so much fun with the game in my absence.. to make matters worse some of his friends kept yelling "titanfall" into the phone while i was talking to bro yesterday...lol. Im missing out, cant wait to get back. I need to get back....:(
shouldn't it be millions like cod?
Haha oh man I'd be dying if I were you. I mean missing the launch of titanfall is one thing. But your crew rubbing it in how much fun they r having without you...that's just cold blooded. I mean this game really feels like your in the pilot seat of a giant mech just going berserk on everything you see. Has such a unique feel to it.
i'm sure there's a reply button somewhere.
I have been telling people for a while but they bought into the hype instead of looking at the actual install base. "Hundreds of thousands" = "We're waiting to crack a million."
N4G A place where lonely ps4 owners who have no real games to play and are jealous of the superior games, on the superior console. They come here to comfort one another and spew lies and hate towards the Awesome Xbox One! N4G a place, a home for Sony Trolling....
Superior console...? Oh wait, a troll and fan boy calling out other trolls and fan boys.
so TF is superior ? i played beta and its just another cod with robots and less players and thats cause of X1 cant handle more..tho cant argue who like what ...sure TF is fun but its too easy but its okee for new players to FPS genre =)
Yep they are all here cause they have no games to play, they turn on the console for 5 min then back off cause its no games for it. Thats why i sold mine i can care less for infamous a game i can finish in 2 days then its forgoten now titanfall its Different story its pure fun mp can play it for months. Titanfall on xbox one! Ps4 its crap. Yea vote me down all you want, in you hearts you know its true, the only real next gen console with the beat games its the xbox.
"the only real next gen console with the beat games its the xbox." The beat games? Next-gen dancing to Han Solo with Kinect confirmed!
Ah yeah - there's that dudebro attitude I come to expect from the Xboys. What's stopping you from playing inFamous for months on end? You know, like how gamers have done and enjoyed doing for over 15 years? Or how about this? You play inFamous, and then go out and actually play OTHER games? You know..... the other PS4 games that to this day, outnumbers the games available on Xbone. ----- Watch out N4G, cause the inFamous hate is really going to heat up, once the Xboys realise how a fantastic, truly next-gen open-world game performs both on the screen, and in sales. We'll see just how many people care about inFamous on PS4 vs. Titanfall on the Xbone in just a few days.
If the game was as good as it was hyped, people like you wouldn't be posting. When I get locked in a game social media and the internet is dead. MGS and SS next week mean that you wont see me on here for a while...I know you are sad.
So you made your pro.file. ~4days ago.\ ( to help hype TF ) http://n4g.com/user/comment...
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. How about you? Care to discuss games instead of fan boys?
And yet you're here too.
Not millions playing?
Great stuff well done Respawn and MS , even hating is more popular than rez or downgrade articles so much hurt so little time.
I'm having sooo much fun!!!
not even a million? the way this game was hyped into oblivion with a lot attention from the press too. now know I why nobody has been talking about the sales of this especially Microsoft.
In other words, "We haven't even hit a million yet, despite it being a flagship title for our new system and being on PC" Was it worth the money to get exclusivity of one title in this franchise, MS?
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.
Ya i noticed alot of new people on the game last night,i took advantage of the new people lol
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.
