Microsoft itself has a lot riding on "Titanfall." The game gives the company a chance to show off the Xbox One's technology while crushing its competition - namely, Sony's Playstation 4.
Ryse is still the best technical game for the xB1 even if the gameplay was bad Titanfall is the opposite, the gameplay is good but the graphics are bland with bad frame-rates and screen tearing maybe year 2 games an be better. MS need to stop competing with the PS4 in specs, it's just too powerful
I am sure Titanfall is a great game, but it hardly shows off what the Xbox One can do. On top of that I don't even think it has any Kinect integration. Titanfall will be a system seller, but it want showcase the performance of the system.
Yeah, Titanfall is a really, really terrible example of what the X1 can or can't do. It struggles to keep a solid framerate, screen tearing everywhere, and it doesn't even look that good.
Right now TF is useless to me because I can't sign in to my profile for the past 4 hours. I'm an avid Xbox fan but this is unacceptable. The day you launch the biggest game for the X1, at peak time as people are off work and out of school, and Xbox Live is limited. How can you justify that? TF was going to increase X1 sales, Live was going to get hit hard, you needed a flawless launch, and you serve up this poopoo platter. I was able to play this morning with no issues, but now that everyone is home and wants to play, Live is limited. MS with all there resources and no fix 4+ hours later is just mind boggling to me. Very disappointed in MS. Titanfall is awesome, super fun game, I'm loving it, but what about those who picked up an X1 this afternoon to play and they are staring at an error message. Step up your game MS
@dedicated Have you even player the game? I've experienced no lag, no screen tearing, and no frame rate issues. Did you just read it or hear about it?And the game does look good. Maps are beautiful. Titans are very detailed. Is it mind blowing graphics? No but they do the job just fine.
I actually laughed out loud and had to explain to my wife why i laughed when i read the title of this article, I dont care how much anyone loves titanfall no one can say its a technical or graphical showcase for the xbone , if they do say that, they must have low expectations for what the console can produce.
@infected Take it from someone who has the game and I don't experience "bad" framesrates. Framerate dips yeah but its not bad not even close actually. @Dedicated that's internet chatter and gossip. There's one thing to talk about it but to play it is way different. I'm not saying what your saying is false but it's not NEARLY as bad as you make it sound. Lol not even close. I actually have the game so I can talk.
Why do people equate "What the Xbox can do" with pixels and framerates? XBox Live is a bigger part of the One's identity than pixel pushing, and Titanfall is a showcase for it (for better or worse).
LOL it doesn't show off the xbox one though it looks and feels like an xbox 360 game on the xbox one.. Then again the PC version doesn't look too great even with the better textures.. Still blows the xbox one version out the window though.
I think Ryse's unvaried gameplay was it's biggest downfall or flaw at least. To me, the actual "gameplay" looked very smooth, just repetitive as all holy hell and not enough other things to do to mix it up. Not an excuse, but to be expected of first year titles.
Ryse is still the best "technical" game for the xB1 even if the gameplay was bad. Graphically yes, and technology wise yes. But technical no, considering it's framerate drops. TitanFall could be them showing off what their online servers can do. I guess Halo 5 / Gears are going to be the games that nail graphics / gameplay / online. Maybe Quantum Break.
Microsoft thinks if they say something enough people will believe it. Titanfall isn't a technical showcase for Xbox One or PC.
Agreed yo I don't c how titinfall shows any technical things on X1 good graphics no cloud BS that MS been bragging about before no hardly anything about it is technical. Ryse DR3 r the only games I can say r somewhat technical as ryse is really good in graphics that's about it and DR3 4 having thounsands of zombies on screen. To tell u the truth this guy I don't like he just sounds stupid Phil spencer is the only MS guy I think is really cool as he try's to make xbox brand better and trying to brink more new ips into X1 and just sounds more realistic about things ya know.
Not even a technical showcase for 360.. Both consoles, 360 and X1 are capable of much more.
No not seriously. Watch the interview. They never say what is in the title which all that you clearly read. It was clearly embellished.
Why would they say this... Like seriously, why? The game runs on 360 ffs
Well what else can he say? Forza? That horse has been flogged to dust.
Microsoft did not say this. Watch the interview.
I'm not sure how a game that's available for PC, looks better on PC, Plays better on PC. Can be a showcase for Xbox one..
It's doing the opposite, unfortunately. If they make another console, big if, hopefully they're mind is in the right place next time going around.
Really guys..really? @ Devilish Ms isnt even talking about the games gfx ,they referring to their online infrastructure which TF is running on and the xbx one leveraging on the tech..but the comments here indicate that ms is showing TF off as a graphical masterpiece and that aint true. MS and Respawn have never touted it as such. Its always been about the Azure servers that powers the game .
No comment on here so far has said anything about Titanfall being good or bad. What people are commenting on is the PR BS when it is being touted as some kind of technological showcase for X1 when that is simply not true.
What sounds like more Microsoft lies at 4:15 Yusuf Mehdi: "Part of what we've done here which is unique relative to what anyone else has done is you can broadcast to any device - our competition only goes from console to console - we go to any device". It sounds he basically telling everyone that on PS4 you cannot broadcast your gameplay to any device that can view your Twitch profile stream? I can view my friends' Twitch stream on any device that supports a web browser.
Clearly people read the title and description then ran with it as usual. If they bothered to watch the video they would quickly see the a lot of embellishment in the words above.
I just got my x1 today and love titanfall so far but let's not act like it couldn't have been done better on ps4
Even if it was on PS4, it would still or "will" sell the most on Xbox360 since there are more 360's sold than ps4 and Xbox1's combined. However, game can totally run on PS4 and maybe even the PS3 and WiiU.
if this 792p failing 30fps 6vs6 no single campaign is a showcase of what the xbox one can do.. i feel very sorry for xbox owners. don't get me wrong, the game looks fun and dope to play.. but in no way is this a showcase game.
Yusuf Mehdi: "We have these dedicated servers that allow you to build truly large scale multiplayer universes". *Looks at Titanfall* o_0 Yeah.... DESTINY is forging more of a truly Massively Multiplayer Online persistent universe and that game is also on PS4, and will be the superior version. Planetside 2 offers more ambition than Titanfall and that's coming to PS4. It's all BS. This is all PR people. Microsoft's whole "Cloud" front and their convincing people that DirectX12 is going to be another much anticipated "secret sauce" that will keep them ahead in some capacity - is all smoke and mirrors, designed to get you to buy into their console. If you believe this is simply trolling, go ahead and watch this video discussing the deception, as clear as day: https://www.youtube.com/wat... Then visit the article it's discussing: http://www.engadget.com/201... It's yet again, another marketing front by Microsoft to make you believe something that they're doing has never been done before in this industry.
Live is down on xb1 no titanfall at launch for many http://support.xbox.com/en-...
But but.... the azure servers XD I know they are saying its nothing to do with titanfall but really today of all days?
youre gonna show your console's capabilities with a game that runs on an outdated game engine at sub-par resolutions? good going MS, great marketing skim. It will sell like crazy and therefor will be portrayed as a technical marvel, eventhough the game is more about gameplay than graphics, and people will believe what they here, because of the popularity of the game
If Microsoft truly wants to show off the power of XBOX One then they need to open up some 1st party studios that will design a new IP built from the ground up for it. Don't use a 3rd party game engine. Instead create one built for XBOX One. Don't stretch the game out to PC as well. Put out new games that you really cannot play anywhere else that is truly designed by a Microsoft game studio for XBOX One. Microsoft is hopefully going to begin relying more on their own studios and less on 3rd party in the future. it is still early in this gen but hopefully they will not make the same mistakes and decisions they made with the 360 and try to rely on 3rd party and a few franchises to carry them. Sony may have started out slow last gen and be going fairly slow now as far as games but they showed time and time again what it means to carry a huge stable of 1st party studios designing games built for one system. Microsoft cannot just rely on what barely carried them through last gen on the 360.
Microsoft has a commitment to PC gaming just like they do to xbox one. And last I checked, titanfall being on PC is not a Microsoft decision. And I think Microsoft is already showing a commitment to bringing first party material vs. What they hardly did last gen.
Great game, but does not do a damn thing with my $100 Kinect. I have remotes to turn crap on and off.
Umm, Ryse shows off the tech, Titanfall certainly does not. It looks like a really nice last gen game. Other competitive shooters look a lot better.
WTF, Microsoft? What statement is that?
MS needs to stop hoping to show off tech and just make good quality gameplay games
You mean the game that's also on 360 and runs at 792p? Yep it shows off Xbox One's mediocre technology.
I watched the interview and see absolutely nowhere where Microsoft says this. What a misleading title haha. People, read the articles/watch the interviews before you post.
