lol Infinity Ward cant catch a break. Looks like EA went behind their back and did the deal for a full exclusive.

Out of the frying pan.....

The same reason many people love Infinity Ward multiplayer (flash and a lack of balance) is the reason I loathe it, so I don't really care what happens with Titanfall, but this deal is interesting.

The fact the deal was behind IW's back indicates to me that IW doesn't own the IP, which means they have a worse deal with EA than Insomniac. The makers of half of the CoD games should have been able to cut a better deal than Insomniac (their worst selling game this gen has sold better than Insomniac's best selling game this gen).

I would say live and learn, but clearly Zampella doesn't ever learn. If they try to do anything more than crank out Titanfalls MS will do the same thing to them that they did to Bungie (tell them to take a hike and offer those team members not fed up a lot of money to stay, effectively splitting the team).

It really is odd. They DO own the IP, but it seems someone either fucked up when signing the publishing contract or they are in on it but are blaming EA for the deal just to deflect some of the bad PR.

I have no idea how someone can own the IP and still get jerked around by the publisher. My guess is Zampella is lying.

I think the most plausible answer is that they are in on it, because if they signed a contract that basically took away their rights to choose what platforms the game is for, they are bigger morons then i had them out to be.

Not to be all douchey but... *Respawn

Anyway, Zampella's Twitter is really interesting now. He isn't outright saying anything but from the sounds of it he isn't completely happy with this deal.

Well, once he sees the check MS had to pay EA to get this deal, i think he will be very very happy, because this can't have been cheap, because i doubt EA would throw away a potential market as big as the reports say ps4 is going to be without being paid.

Or its possible that he is just playing his "twitter followers" and everyones hate for EA.

I played the free open beta a bit and its a ok fun experience, its better than CoD in some areas and worse in others but i think EA actually make the best mp this time.

Single player is not even worth talking about.

Well I am bummed. I really wanted to play Titanfall. So EA confirmed Titanfall will be exclusive for Xbox and PC for the life of the title.

EA tweeted it out as well.

Major grab for MS, it was assumed it would be a timed exclusive so this is pretty big. Maybe this is just for the first one...

You don't play games on your pc? but i wonder how much MS had to pay EA for that decision

@ megaspiderweb09

Mass Effect 3 ending, and DmC reboot. That should be simple, two outrageous controversies spearheaded by hardcore fans one of which inspired vengefull Cupcakes. Thats about as simple as I can go.

It wasn´t just "hardcare" gamers who got pissed over Mass Effects ending, i think you can say without lying that 85% who played it and got to that hated it, the last 15% was 12.5% who just had to troll and say they liked it and then the last part was people who actually thought ok, fine ending.

At least they didn't release something crap and destroyed the franchise even more.

Is that SomethIng they Might ConsIder TrYing to get away with?

Its EA so they would probably try to get away with much much worse things than that :D not this time tho, so i guess even EA has standards.

i do think it would make sense for clementine to be the viewpoint character. (season 1, ep. 5)

with lee gone, it would be a natural approximation of having clementine's morality be the result of that player's lee.

plus the knowledge that clementine was always watching and learning was the biggest motivation to do good in season 1. it will be interesting to see how players' decisions and telltale's writing will change without that judge-type character.

Ya, Clem was the reason why i did the good things in season 1, didn't want to have her turning into a b.... so it looks like the first will come in nov, so only a short time before its time :D

At least they didn't release something crap and destroyed the franchise even more.

could a 2000 dollar high end PC rig compete with a ps4, performance wise

Is that even a legit question?
