COD Lead Platform switching to PS4

This topic is locked from further discussion.

#1 Edited by tyloss (829 posts) -

Ouch.... Guess that exclusive DLC and money begging from Microsoft wasn't worth the sales gap between the PS4 and Xbox One.

Sales were much higher on the PS4.

Listen, Dualshockers is actually less of a fanboy site than the name might imply but I still take that with a grain of salt (though the original post and source is legitimate).

I'd say the higher similarities to a PC and generally easier developing ability for the PS4 makes this seem true, but it won't mean as much to a consumer as DLC being there first.

You're not understanding the symbolic significance of this move, nor do you understand how the sales disaster of titanflop is going to damage MS and the Xbone.

Titanfall was advertised like no other game before. I wouldn't be surprised if the money spent advertising titanfall was bigger than the development and advertising budget of every single game from 1950-2013 combined. Despite the monstrous budget, titanfall only managed to sell a pitiful 200-300k units on the Xbone. Do you think other publishers and 3rd party studios aren't taking note? They're observing this carefully. Assuming that the people running these companies have any ounce of intelligence, they'd probably NEVER accept exclusivity deals with Microsoft.

At least with SONY, SONY had Naughty Dog, Santa Monica, Polyphony, and Media Molecule. The only thing MS has is 343i, and they're worse than SONY's worst 1st party studio. Microsoft will have the worst 1st party games, no 3rd party exclusives, the worst multiplats, and the worst OS.

This could be it for Xbox*.

Cod is still played out. That franchise needs a relaunch like tomb raider or the latest spiderman movie

Sonygaf insider again, not shocked in the least, lol. I suppose its possible given current sales figures, but that guy only ever posts negative Xbox One info. We shall see though.

#13 Posted by cainetao11 (17699 posts) -

Makes sense business wise. But I though Xbox was the dudebro shooter console? Cows and their rose tinted glasses. They are no better than any other human being that plays video games.

#14 Posted by MBirdy88 (8310 posts) -

You mean the console with the lead sales won on a very popular multiplat?

who would of thunk it batman?

Weird lems are saying COD sucks when TitanFall essentially plagiarized every single aspect of it, excluding SinglePlayer of course.

#18 Edited by LanceX2 (305 posts) -

......there was 400k pre orders for titanfall I think that's us alone. Not sure but your way off on 200k-300k

LOL, you are crap at this

"according to details leaked by an insider Sony source close to our friend at Insiderp."

give it up

yeah, COD a very successful franchise. played and loved mostly for its multiplayer mode.

the lead designer of titanfall also designed and built the first level of God of War 3........so COD plays like God of war by your logic.......

you are almost as bad at this as kuraimen or grenadelauncher.

Says the cow. You can stop with your opinions on TF. They mean absolutely nothing since you've proven you're incapable of giving an honest opinion. I've played a lot of COD and right now I'd take TF (PC of course) over COD any time.

On topic

Isn't the easiest and more powerful console always the lead platform for multiplats? That's why the 360 was lead platform for most of last gen. Not sure how this is ownage but I guess the jokes of SWs have nothing else to brag about. They certainly don't have any games to play right now.

#28 Posted by GoldenElementXL (3283 posts) -

So now COD matters to Cows?

#29 Posted by StormyJoe (5488 posts) -

@tyloss: Interesting.

I wonder how good future CoD games will be since the brains behind it are at Remedy. Still, kind of funny to me how cows are shouting "TLHBO", when: they seemed not to give a damn about that game when the 360 was the lead platform, it is still coming to the XB1, Sony fans are supposed to hate shooters.

Again, lets wait for Activision to announce this. This is yet another Neogaf "insider". Its amazing to me that all the insiders seem to only know Good news for Sony and bad for X1.

This Gen is ridiculous. All the news sources are coming out off peoples ass. Insiders who have no background validations are being quoted as if its from the company themselves. And whats worse when the actual company comes out and clarifies their own product....the "insider" is believed more then the actual company. See ; Cboat vs Microsoft.

These news "sources" are the equivalent of taking Vgchartz at its word. Its all nonsense meant to stir up Sony fans. And you fools fall for it every time.

Lets wait for activision to validate this before we call this "news"

#32 Posted by tyloss (829 posts) -

@StormyJoe: want here last gen don't care. Quit playing victim.

@sts106mat: terrible logic in which you have to insinuate predicted behavior before one (in this case I) have not alluded to said statement you just stated.

That's not "my logic".

@kingtito: did I strike a nerve? Calm down.

#33 Posted by tyloss (829 posts) -

@StormyJoe: and Call of Duty is more fun them TitanFall.

Yeah, bullshit numbers from insiderp.

Microsoft said themselves that "hundreds of thousands of players have played titanfall so far", meaning it sold 100-300k.

If it were 400k, they'd say "almost half a million". If it were 500k, they'd say "half a million". If it were above 500k, they'd say "more than half a million".

You must not understand how PR departments work. Titanfall only sold a meager 300k.

Nah. Ghosts sucked, and Modern Warfare 3 was a whimper, but CoD, especially Treyarch CoD, still remains fun =)

PS4 is on a ROLL guys.

@notrolling: No.

#38 Posted by spicymeatball27 (64 posts) -

lol Bragging about COD a piece of shit game where Ghosts had teh same exact ending as MW1/2 lol. Does it matter the COD name will sell for all the idiots stupid enough to buy the same rehash game every year. plus cod graphics are garbage lol. They don't even try anymore just look at Ghosts. Last COD game i've played was the first black ops after seeing how piss poor MW3 was.

Titanfall sold around over 700,000 copies at least from what i found articles today on googling it or watever so thats great news considering its on a new console which only came out 5 months ago.

Wow...this really is the end of the xbox.

Yes.

I run my own semi-successful business.

I may not run a multi-billion dollar company like Microsoft, but I know how PR departments work.

I have around 12 branches throughout the US and a total of 55 employees under my wing.

3 of them work in the PR department in my company. One of the most common ways of advertising products to consumers is to show them sales statistics. We don't give them exact sales numbers, but if one of our products sells more than 500,000, we ALWAYS say "more than half a million bought XXX" instead of "hundreds of thousands".

Titanfall did not sell even half that amount.

You got those figures from some fakeboy turd called insiderp who's about as reliable as MisterXMedia.

Microsoft's own words were, "hundreds of thousands", which means somewhere between 200-300k.

Lol at lemturds bashing COD but praising Titanflop. It's the same crappy game lems. Your simple minds clearly can't see due to all the smoke generated by the phony hype done by MS and EA but the games are not much different for anyone with a brain.

#44 Posted by slimdogmilionar (561 posts) -

MS don't need C.O.D anymore, it's being phased out by Battlefield already(second assault xbox one timed exclusive) not to mention the hype around Titanfall. Cod is the Madden of FPS, same game next year just different rosters/maps.

Your article says

Over 600k for PS4 GLOBALLY Infamous

Over 385K for XB1 NORTH AMERICA ONLY for Titanfall

The article is comparing part of an apple to a whole apple

Never thought I'd live to see the day where Lems start badmouthing Call of Duty. Did I wake up in the Mirror Universe from Star Trek this morning or what?

@notrolling: Considering theres a bunch of aritcles already saying titanfall sold 700,000 copies in a week i'm more or less gonna believe what has been posted then someone like you whos also a fanboy lol who thinks he knows everything.
