"Titanfall, the first major release in 2014 for the Xbox One has been a success for both Microsoft and Electronic Arts. The game had the biggest launch for any Xbox One title selling 902,010 units in its first week on sale and more than doubling Xbox One sales that week to 153,665.

Titanfall has now become the first Xbox One title to sell two million units. It took the game 19 weeks to hit this achievement. The game since release has been one of the bestselling Xbox One titles on a weekly basis."

But if true thats amazing

DVS-Zev1112d ago

It must be nice to make up your own numbers and then post news stories about it.VG has the no content pure click based add revenue game on lock.

Brilliant actually.

reaperofsouls1112d ago (Edited 1112d ago )

well we all know how accurate vg is considering killzone shadowfall was officialy anonced to have sold over 2.1m uinit back in the first quarter yet vg still insists its only 1.8m

Can 3 million unit combined be considered to be a success for a game that was suppossed to be the COD killer ?

Not saying 3 Million units is bad or anything!

Grap1112d ago

3 million for a new ip is actually spectacular achievement also it's only on 3 platforms, don't let your fanboyism blind you.

starchild1112d ago

A new IP on a new console with a low installed base selling 2 million units is definitely a big success.

Eonjay1112d ago (Edited 1112d ago )

Yeah yeah we know it not legit... but lets play along for a few minutes.

I wonder how many of those shipped with Xbox One. In other words, I want to know how many units of Xbox One were sold on the back of this bundle.

Even if its half, that would be pretty impressive.

DeadlyOreo1112d ago

Yes. Regardless of me only owning a PS4, these are good numbers if true.

Congrats to EA & Microsoft.

Grap1112d ago (Edited 1112d ago )

So I guess the 10 guys who disagree with me aren't impressed with 3 milion!. Please enlight me how it's not, at least one of you.

dantesparda1112d ago (Edited 1112d ago )

Im sorry but i dont find it that impressive, especially for a game being given away for free with the purchase of the system and with all the marketing hype this game got. I have never seen a game with more hype behind it then this game got and I have seen a sh*t ton of games with ALOT of hype in my days. KZSF was announced offically (this isnt even official, its VGChartz) to have sold over 2.1 million by March 2 of 2014, with around the same install base in less time (3 1/2 months vs 5). So while not bad its not really impressive to me. Halo, Gears and COD on the 360 when they first came out, now those were impressive numbers. Im not saying its terrible but just not terribly impressive to me, its decent. Also, this is VGChartz saying this people, come on. Now have fun disagreeing away. Peace!

Let me try to clear up all this mess you guys are spreading back and forth.

TitanFall = Success
TitanFall was not a failure as a game. Selling 3 million copies of a game is never a bad thing (unless budget becomes a problem), and selling 2 million on one platform would put it in the top 100 best selling games for any of the last gen consoles even with their 80+ million install base.

TitanFall for XBO = Success
2 million sold on an install base of 5 million is a great accomplishment. It helped that the game was bundled with the console, but those bundles were selling not only because of the price, but because TitanFall was the game to get them to move over to an XBO.

TitanFall for 360 = Okay
Those numbers are quite disappointing, and shows me that the 360 is being phased out in the mind of gamers who are waiting to buy a next-gen console or possibly PC. North America is the final stronghold the 360 has left (and the UK). It still broke the top 250 best selling 360 games, and has a chance of breaking the top 200.

TitanFall for PC = ?????
These numbers mean nothing, because most PC game sells are digital, which aren't tracked by VG.

TitanFall for Respawn = Success
For Respawn TitanFall was a success. 3 million physical copies sold across 3 platforms is something most developers wish they could see, and even more impressive is that the game skipped the PS brand and still hit those numbers.

TitanFall for MS = Okay
This is where things finally get bad. MS had hoped TitanFall would be the boost the XBO needed to check the PS4, and while the game did give them a sales boost, and went on to sell well it most certainly was not the end-all to their current situation sales wise. They have another IP under their belt which they can market as an XBO first game (like they're doing with COD), but TitanFall 2 is probably going multiplat, and won't be seeing much MS money outside of paying for DLC first.

TitanFall for EA = Okay / Failure (at least in comparison to their goals)
This is the worse news for the gam. 3 million in sales is a success, but EA wanted TitanFall to be the next Call of Duty (in sales and success at least) and it wasn't. And that's mainly because they marketed the game heavily as an XBO game (the console with the smallest install base), they kept the 360 version silent for the entire media campaign, the PC version wasn't graphically impressive (eliminating the audience that just wants to max out games), the PC version was tied to origins (just a headache having to get games from multiple services), and the left out the PlayStation brand which was 80+ million PS3 users, and currently around 9 million PS4 users.

Overall this was just bad business for EA (unless MS paid for any loss of sales for not being on PS aka around $180+ million), and TitanFall 2 will more than likely be multiplat.

Long story short, TitanFall was a success unless you're EA or MS who expected it to do more for their brand (EA wanted their own COD, but it didn't happen sales wise, and MS wanted a game changer for the XBO but that didn't happen either).

johndoe112111112d ago

What I want to know is how many of that 3 million that they are counting as sales were given away free with xbox ones.

alb18991112d ago

2 millions for a console that just sold 5 millions is A LOT!
Halo sold 11 millions when the xbox 360 sold 50 you see?

donthate1112d ago

I wonder how many more millions of copies of Titanfall was sold digitally on all platforms?

Many of my friends and me included went digital only this generation for the awesomness of instant switching on Xbox One.

So 2 million on Xbox One on physical disc only is a humongous number! That means Titanfall would easily hit 50% penetration rate on Xbox One.

That is huge success!

legionsoup1112d ago

Just imagine what the sales numbers would be if it were on PS4. Yikes!

Cueil1112d ago

@CapraDemon 2.1 and 1.8 is pretty close to the 10 percent plus minus they try to hit

Kidmyst1111d ago

Does the 3 Million include actual sales or what was also given away as free? MSFT was giving the free codes away so do we know how many that was? I bought it but haven't played it in several months, wonder how many on average a day play.

Dark_Overlord1112d ago

Agreed, I'll wait for official numbers (we all know how inaccurate vgchartz is)

but for a new IP, that is def good :)

I genuinely thought it would sell more on the 360 due to install base

xer01111d ago

Wasn't the game given away for free on Xbox Ones, a few months after launch?

I wonder how it would have done without the various retailer promotions.

3-4-51112d ago

VGchartz isn't usually off by that much. It's mostly accurate for a large majority of games.

trunkswd1112d ago

Yes. They are not made up. VGChartz gets sales data from some retailers and extrapolates that.

Death1112d ago

The sample rate VGC gets is too small to track sales. There are 13 people at VGC that not only run the website, but also track sales globally. NPD tracks North American sales and employs hundreds to do it. They also pay retailers for the information that VGC claims to get free. NPD also sells this data to other companies including Microsoft and Sony. VGC posts their numbers for free.

There is no way around it, VGC makes up their numbers.

JMyers1112d ago

VG Chartz always adjust their numbers to match the offical announced ones. They are off by quite a bit, and quite regularly. For instance, they had the X1 at 5 million sold about 3 times now, only to lower it under that mark.

They had the X1 North America sales higher than the PS4 when TitanFall launched, then again with the price drop. Infact they had this way off for about 4 months.

If they are wrong about their console numbers, with massive adjustments... We can logically assume that their games number are also just as incorrect.

MaxKingoftheWild1112d ago

The only thing we get constant updates on is the hardware... Just look at how far off they were on 3ds sales last quarter and German sales... Now think how bad they are with software with absolutely no official numbers.

MSpence5161111d ago

I would think that if they(VGC) truly made up their numbers that they would be way off(and I mean way the f**k off, like <30%). They obviously have to be based off some statistics that come from some retailers, not all. Of course, the higher the numbers the more margin for error, but I digress.

As a One owner(getting a PS4 when TLOU bundle is released), I would like to see more but these numbers are great for the current install base.

sonarus1112d ago

vg chartz data probably have weak confidence intervals. However, it doesnt change the fact that Titanfall has been a success. I am surprised it only moved 1 million on Xbox 360 though. It seems most of the hardcore crowd have migrated to the new consoles already

hello121112d ago

Nope i have lot of friends on 360 and hardly nobody bought that game. Don't know why i can't explain it to be honest. Kind of odd alright when the 360 has around 40 million users.

TekoIie1112d ago

Maybe a fair amount of the 1 million came from PC?

user74029311112d ago

amazing? no. the hype is had was out of this world! it was grand theft auto big! i bet ea expected it to atleast hit 4-5 million easy.

gamerfan09091112d ago

No next gen exclusive has sold any where near 5 million yet. Mario Kart is the closest.

DLConspiracy1112d ago

You are not accounting for all the fanboys who consistently/still put the game down because it wasn't on PS4.

MaxKingoftheWild1111d ago

Gamerfan0909, it isn't exclusive. It's available on three platforms. Your comment is the equivalent of me saying no sports game reached x amount yet while talking about mlb the show and ignoring ps3/vita sales. Also, just because no game hasn't done it yet doesn't mean it wasn't expected to do more.

Gamer19821112d ago

Xbox one sales were impressive considering a new console but they gotta be dissapointed with those 360 sales considering how well shooters sell on 360. No doubt thanks to MS pushing it back so late plus making out like it looks crap on 360 to push the xbox one version. So for MS it worked for 1 week in terms of sales but it did HORRIBLE in long term sales for both consoles combined and completely bombed for 360.. If we didnt have xbox one sales there we would have been calling this game a failure.

reaperofsouls1112d ago

@ grap
well knack sold over 1 milion on only one platform giving a similar sale to platform ratio, so i guess that it was as equally successfuland that is without the monumental hype that titanfall recieved

JeffGUNZ1112d ago

What? The install base for PS4 is higher then X1 and Titanfall still sold a million over Knack. Stop, just stop the agenda.
