Planned updates to the Xbox One version of Titanfall are directly affecting the release of its Xbox 360 port, Respawn Entertainment founder Vince Zampella confirmed to GameSpot.
Is that what EA told him to say?.. lol
Gotta move those xbox ones..
Lol.. Conspiracy theories are always a laugh..
When Ps3 was released and had practically nothing worth getting, Sony noticed a problem. Instead of wasting money on "next gen" crap, they were buying, instead, PS2 games because the system was backwards compatible. The problem was so bad that Sony took away backwards compatability from future PS3's claiming it was to cut cost, when in reality they did it so that people would have no choice other than to buy PS3 games instead of the cheaper, and better, PS2 games. I wish to this day I saved the interview where Jack Tretton pretty much admitted this was the cause. The point is, Xbone isn't doing well at all and if this is what it takes to sell the Xbone and make it so people avoid the 360 version then they'll do it. Calling it a "conspiracy theory" like it's some bad label is foolish.
Developers have way more experience with last gen consoles and therefore the development cycles are bound to be shorter right now. We are intelligent enough to figure out what their angle is and that actually okay.
@Baccra To be fair, the BC PS3s had the PS2s Emotion Engine guts stuffed inside them, and that made them very expensive to produce.
How so? Respawn is making a PC and Xbox one game.. Bluepoint then ports all their work to 360.. This argument would be valid if respawn was doing the work, but they arent.. I say its a conspiracy theory because..well.. It is plain and simple.. Choosing to assume everyone lies 100% of the time and there is always some evil plot afoot.. Gee.. Doesn't the insanely simple and obvious answer that they gave make sense to you? People are always trying to read between the lines when there is nothing there.. And they never learn from being proven wrong, just move on to the next ridiculous claim.. If this was truly their plan, it wouldn't release in the same fkn month Lol.. It would come out down the road.. Their reason makes complete sense.. While the ones floating around here dont
@n4rc do you not at least agree that it benefits XB1 sales JUST A BIT by not having the 360 release at the same time? You don't think that'd be a convenient thing for MS to push XB1 sales? Whether or not it's true, you at least have to admit it will help XB1 by NOT having 360 TF same day.
FYI - Reality is spelled R-E-A-L-I-T-Y and not CONSPIRACY. And there is nothing funny about the cheap tactics MS sinks to trying to entice sales for their "current" bread and butter. Seriously. It's not like TitanFall is a graphical intesne juggernaut as to why there is such a delay. It's definitely a fun game but mediocre graphically. This is just another in a long line of stunts MS pulls to attract attention to their latest and greatest. Anything to boost sales.
Well sure.. It could help.. Assuming people would drop 500 on something they didn't want previously just to not wait 2 weeks for a single game.. If their goal was to boost x1 sales, a 2 week delay isn't doing much IMO.. That's why it doesn't make sense to me.. Its more likely that the lead platform is finished first and they aren't waiting for the 360 port to release the game..
"If their goal was to boost x1 sales, a 2 week delay isn't doing much IMO.." Than why does MS spend tens of million is not hundreds of millions of dollars on exclusive DLC to have it 4 weeks before the competitor? Oh and next time you get your panties in a bunch and PM someone that obviously struck a nerve with you? Come up with a better retort than this: "You mean like flat out lying about your games resolution? Oh wait.. That was Sony Gimme a break man" Like I said to you in reply this was the lamest PM I've ever received from a member of this site. Do you make it a habit of sending every person a PM that doesn't agree with you? If so how do you find the time to sleep? MS has been making moves like this since they entered this industry. This delay is deliberate. Anything to entice sales.
When is this coming out on 360 anyway?
I thought they said March 25th, but i saw video on IGN earlier that said March 28th.
I would take the blue pill because I wouldn't want the RROD.
Its so they can sell more xbones. I bet the XB1/360 versions both look the same and play the same.
I agree. I bet a slight drop in framerate for the 360
That's the consensus over on GAF too.. March 25th is the supposed release date of 'Titanfall' 360.. yet here we are, less than 2 weeks away from (supposed) release and we've still seen zero images, zero gameplay videos, nothing, absolutely nothing. It's almost like the game doesn't even exist. .. EA aren't marketing it, MS certainly isn't. It's all XB1 - the ad I've seen on TV (FXX has shown it 3 times in the last 90mins) is just for the XB1, no mention of the PC or 360.
I noticed that too. For the longest while I thought it wasn't coming to 360. Gateway MT6706 2008
of course they'll play the same, the main difference is one will look slighty better than the other
Hopefully im just misinterpreting that they were rushed. :-\
I'm sure it's only to sell more copies of Titanfall on the Xbox One. That would definitely work but with a very limited gap of just 2 weeks, you can't really expect much.
Its a marketing strategy, most companies today do the same. The game will not look as good on xbox 360 as it will on Xbox one. But the experience on 360 will still be awesome. titanfall is awesome. Period. Lol at the disagrees, is that you imsomnia-84 by any chance? With your two N4G accounts?
I call PR BS regarding on why the 360 version comes out later. Since the 360 version is done by another studio the reason given doesn't make sense. And private matches are added for free? There shouldn't even be a question if something like that is free.
So it begins. Vince Zampella saying that lays the ground work for another Xbox 360 delay. Of course we know the game is only being delayed because that's what Microsoft wants and needs. When Titanfall releases on the X1 they are going to hype this FPS training game to no end they may even proclaim it's the second coming of Christ and you can only have and see him on Xbox One. I can see the TV add now. Microsoft has already doomed the Titanfall budget with the non stop hype train that got on track at E3 last June and went into overdrive around Nov 22 and has been that way till about a week ago. But when it releases omg! For the next month there will be nothing else happening on Earth. Microsoft will make Titanfall the story with paid hype and paid shills that sign the " you can't say anything bad about Titanfall" agreement. Titanfall itself can't sell enough copies for Microsoft to break even on the exclusive deal because of the hype train cost so the only thing they have left that Titanfall can do for them is sell what they Microsoft can't and that's sell the Xbox One. I think Microsoft will be lucky to get 150,000 X1's sold by July from Titanfall. I don't see it as a console seller, just my opinion. I do hope its a good 360 game but I'm not holding my breath on that and that's the last thing Microsoft needs. Again, my opinion.
