titanfall will prob be a great game, i will be enjoying it on my pc or x360 (hate origin) but lets look at what impact it could have on x1 sales

x360 has sold around 80m, xbl has around 56m users, 1/3 of those are xbl gold members (according to patchter, i cant find any recent info regarding this)

titanfall is an online only game also releasing for x360 and pc DAY 1

by march x1 will prob have sold 3-4m, because majority of those will be hardcore games lets say 60% are xbl gold subscribers

titanfall will have a potential audience of 1.8m-2.4m xbl gold users at launch

can titanfall be m$ halo or gears for this gen? NO. the release of x360 version on day 1 will harm x1 sales EXPONENTIALLY. pc version to the casual public is irrelevant. titanfall is NOT a graphical powerhouse, i havnt seen anything to suggest x360 cant pull of those visuals. it will help x1 sales a bit but it is not the saviour m$ is hoping for

good day gentlemen.

Titanfall: A new breed of story-driven multiplayer shooter

Titanfall is billed as the next evolutionary step for the first-person shooter genre.

Developed by much of the same talent that revolutionised the genre with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, the mech shooter aims to bridge the gap between single-player and multiplayer and bring a refreshing freedom of movement to a genre bogged down by the restrictions of gravity.

-

Titanfall is a game crammed with interesting, new ideas that will no doubt pave the way for a whole new generation of first-person shooters.

I can't wait to see the side-by-side direct-feed comparisons of the PC version / XB1 version / X360 version.

#7 Edited by ghostwarrior786 (3878 posts) -

@Netherscourge: have they even shown x1 footage? last i checked everything was pc version. i really dont think there will be much disparity between x1/x360 versions

#8 Posted by Legend500 (128 posts) -

TitanFall looks generic and average. The only hype for the game is forum nerd hype. This game is too average and too irrelevant to mask the Xbox One PR disaster. PS4s hype is too strong and Sony seems to be riding the momentum. inFamous: Second Son will destroy this game in both sales and reviews you can quote me on that.

TitanFall will be a system seller for Xbox One. I guarantee it.

I have an Xbone and titanFall doesn't appeal to me and I wont be playing it. I'll be playing Destiny instead. On PS4.

you think an exclusive on the ps4 is going to outsell a muitplatform FPS on the PC/xbox one?

really?

#13 Posted by shawn30 (4364 posts) -

I have a small circle of gaming pals that include a few co-workers. In total, around 9 - although 4 are my closest friends. They are all interested in Titanfall. 3 for PC, and the other 6 for X1. No one would even entertain the idea of getting it for the 360. No matter how many 360's are out there, people will see the PC and X1 version and those will be bought by far the most. Titanfall will move X1 systems and MS will likely throw a Halo sized marketing budget behind it. Expect a Super Bowl commercial and the launch of the beta will be like a fucking event.

Titanfall has been played to many times by to many journalists from to many websites and won to many game of the show awards to not at least be a very good game, and possibly a great one.

Looks like a boring version of unreal tournement to me.

I do not understand the hype for it.....

@The_Dork_Knight , means nothing until the game is closer to release, and im fed up of these previews and reviews, making out uncharted, cod and games of a similar fashion are THE BEST GAMES EVER .... for shallow reasons.

#16 Edited by ghostwarrior786 (3878 posts) -

@shawn30: the average consumer will not move to nextgen until 1-2 years after launch, multiplatform titles are guaranteed to sell better on x360/ps3, same goes for titanfall. there is no way the x1 sales will even come close to x360 sales

UGHHHH I forgot this thing is going to use ORIGIN on PC.. might have to settle for that xbone version... or nothing at all

You have no idea what you're talking about troll. The average gamer? Do you ever know what the average gamer is? You're not a gamer, you're a Sony troll fanboy with it's head up Sony's ass.

Millions of XOnes will be in consumers hands by the time Titan Fall is released. There will be lots of people buying an XOne just to play this game. We know you're scared but it's ok you can still get an XOne to play the game. No need to sit and cry over it kid.

#20 Posted by Phazevariance (10936 posts) -

Cows: Looks boring, plain, generic.

Rest of the world: Can't wait to get this, looks amazing, like cod only improved vastly in how it plays, graphics are pretty good

Cows after launch: Petition for titanfall on playstation, wtf why is this exclusive?, waah wahh moooo.

#21 Posted by blangenakker (2225 posts) -

It's a shooty mcbang bang game that has had plenty of advertisement, it'll do fine.

You wouldn't buy an XOne regardless troll. Fact of the matter is there will be people that do. Not everyone is troll or fanboy like you ghost. You stay scared kid.

like i said, a small number of people will buy x1 for titanfall. the sane majority will buy it for x360 or pc and no i wouldnt buy a garbage console like x1 for just 1 good game

@ghostwarrior786: Worst-case scenario, TitanFall somehow bombs, Halo 5 will save the day, simple as that, they have a backup. Few franchises are mega-successful like Halo is, it definitely has the power to turn the tide, and it has guaranteed sales potential.

Nope, I have a decent gaming PC. I'll be playing it at 1080p while you squint playing the Xbone 720p version lol.

u are setting yourself up for ownage, titanfall will not save x1. the majority will buy for x360 because most people dont buy new consoles this early into next gen.

#33 Edited by NFJSupreme (5152 posts) -

why does the xbone need saving exactly? By all accounts it's doing very well and each console is sold at a profit. What exactly does it need saving from?

The XOne doesn't need saving troll. It's selling well and will sell even better once Titan Fall releases. It's not like you're objective so your opinion doesn't really matter. You're a Sony drone kid.

If your pc is "decent" wouldn't you run it at 720 to? According to system wars, most hermits or anyone that has a pc, has a low spec one. If going by that, if you wanted to game at 1080p, you'd have to play it at low settings because it can't compete with the powah of the ps4.

:P

Titanfall will not have 64 player MP on the X360, but will on the X1; that I think will make a big difference on people wanting it on the X1.

#37 Posted by clone01 (24524 posts) -

Okay.

#38 Posted by KeepClearx (59 posts) -

Looks average to me, I would expect the game to get around 7/10. best not to over hype it, then again I could be wrong.

Nope but you have to buy a decent PC and pay for MICTOSOFT windows. Keep crying cow moo moo money goes to MS regardless.

Xbox 360? paid Microsoft

Xbox one? paid Microsoft

PC? paid Microsoft for the OS

decent PC? 720p on low

extreme PC? paid too much to play

Can't wait till march. I'll enjoy the tears of lemmings when titanfall flips on the 11th and then more tears when Infamous second son beats its hype the following week. Don't worry I'll still be making the Titanfall hype thread, but I assure you the infamous second son hype thread will outscore the Titanfall game
