Not bad, guess a lot of people were waiting for a price drop. Lets see how long the sales keep up.

#3 Edited by charizard1605 (52808 posts) -

Let's see if this is a spike or a sustained trend of increased sales. I hope it's the latter, competition is always good.

#4 Posted by Tlgersuperman (87 posts) -

You need to find more UK retailers for there to be a picture. I only see two with tf on the top. GAME's numbers will be put up tomorrow.

There is a chance this game could be the nest gears or the next Halo 3. Gears is acceptable, Halo 3 would be very impressive. The game already seems to look like it will do much better than that other online only fps.

What did M.A.G. stand for again? Massive Action Game?

We all know SONY will rule EU. This is good for customers though, but sucks for people who bought their console early on..like me.

Well obviously TitanFall would sell consoles, how much consoles it manages to sell over the period of two years however, would be a different story.

With a price cut and free 60 dollar game it sure as hell should be

No doubt there will be spikes in sales on a recently announced discount bundle. It's a few months from now that we'll really know how effective the bundle is.

Thanks to massive advertising, yes. I am still baffled why Titanfall is touted as a system seller for the Xbox One when it's available (with a smart delay, of course!) on the 360, too. Not to mention that a medium range PC can run the game just fine. Titanfall being an X1 system seller is such a stupid argument, but evidently when you keep repeating the message over and over again people will believe you.

You have to be in a closet and have not been outside to say that tf won't sell Xbox ones when in the real world that is what the game is advertised for to the average consumer.

Yup, and in NA we didn't get a free game at launch like EU, nor do we get this deal.

I agree.. its going to have a spike in sales since they will be advertising the hell out of it, but the spike lems are hoping for, is wishful thinking..If they can keep up the sales over a month then lems can celebrate but titanfall doesn't seem that good of game to sell massive amounts for a long period of time, i say a week of piked sales at the most..i cant see that many casuals dropping $500 on a game that they can already play on their pc and 360.

@jsolidus: 500 dollars isn't a big deal, even to casuals. My ps4 and xbox one are both the cheapest part of my entertainment system. And I'd imagine the same for most people if they want a good tv and good sound

if that was the case people wouldn't of whined and cried about the ps3 price and lems wouldn't be jumping for joy over a price cut 3 months after launch...The price did turn off a lot of people, $500 is a big deal to casuals

This really isn't indicative of anything other than hype for one game.

I have doubts that this will push your platform hard in that territory for long. Come back after some time has passed.

#27 Posted by uninspiredcup (4800 posts) -

I guess the fake media Titanfall hype worked. Nice work gamespot.

#28 Edited by IMAHAPYHIPPO (2274 posts) -

It's kind of hard to outsell something when you can't keep them in stock long enough.

Lol every console company does it whats new? (When sony had the money they were king of this)

Also the fact most people who played the beta got addicted to it kinda invalidates your argunment.

Comparing sales to something that is out of stock?

@Nightflash28 I get your point and you're right in a way but on the other hand why would anything on PS4 be considered a system seller?

Sean is a hardcore PC gamer and he loves it. I use to be a hardcore PC gamer, I love it. It's a damn fine game. Now, the people you speak of are elitist losers with little to no life.

Daily best sellers. I remember the Xbone soared up the charts after the DRM reversal, didn't help it.

You want to look at the bestseller archive. Titanshit 6th because it's the only game Xbots have to play. Xbone consoles are at 57th and 62nd. Titanshit bundle nowhere to be seen. System seller?

You just killed the OP's hopes and dreams. He was hoping the Titanfall bundle would redeem the Xbone. Him and the other delusional lems on SW seem to think Titanfall alone can save the Xbone from mediocrity while forgetting the game is a multiplat that runs better on PC and is available on the much cheaper 360.

The 360 and PC version aren't really shifting here. So the real narrative here is that Titanshit - the "most anticipated game of 2014" - is in reality only coveted by a certain section of the industry who have bought a $500 cablebox and nothing else to play.

@Nightflash28 I get your point and you're right in a way but on the other hand why would anything on PS4 be considered a system seller?

Look: a game that I can play on my Xbox 360 is no reason to buy an Xbox One. I hope you see the point I'm trying to make.
I didn't buy a PS4 to play the games I could just as well have gotten for my PS3, I bought it for the stuff that's made for that console. System Sellers are exclusives. Halo has always been a system seller for the Xbox, Gears, etc. Those games were exclusive to the platform and you couldn't play them anywhere else (ignoring that Halo was also released on PC later).

What bugs me is that in reality Titanfall is a cross-gen multiplat; you can play it on the 360 you already own, there's no need to dish out $500 for a new console to play that game. If you own a mid-range PC you can run it just fine... but this is just such a good example how advertising can change people's perception. It's only because it's marketed as a Xbox One system seller that it's becoming one.

So people are buying PS4s for knack and killzone, and not for better looking versions of games available on their old systems? I find that hard to believe.

Titanfall version UK Xbox One still destroying the competing march games like a warrior (funny how the main protagonist of Metal Gear Solid looks like after being beaten by TF right and left)

US, Germany, all other europe countries too. I just checked. In my country too, everyone says they buy Titanfall bundeled Xbox One. Xbox One is priced higer than PS4 and it still sells very well.

Titanfall is new HALO

Titanfall will be huge. Regardless of platform. Regardless of preference.

Massive game will be massive.

Its something to celebrate not damage control just because its not on you're platform of choice.

Very lame drama post

I didn't say it wasn't available on other consoles just that it was selling better on Xbox One. The fact is you can buy the PS4 or Xbox One right now on amazon, it is not out of stock you can actually still buy the PS4 and either have it delivered from amazon in March or use one of the 48 other sellers to get it now. You can buy Titanfall and you wont get it until March.

LOL at least we get a decent game to play that's not an indie game.

The Xbox One is selling for more had a bad start and is still selling well. Price reduction and Titanfall will start to level the playing field. I think you will find there are more delusional cows thinking the PS4 can do no wrong and Xbox One wont compete.

Most PS4 games run better on PC (old PC indie games especially) so yet again you don't really have a point there.

Love Titanfall, but would never waste £400 on such a s*it system... that £400 is easily a great PC upgrade... and lets be honest shall we, watching PC footage due to the twitch reflexes of a mouse and keyboard ona fast game like this is so much more impressive than clunky controllers.

Make the right choice people, get the PC version.
