GS Breaking News: Titanfall Never Coming to PS4
GameSpot breaks down the news that EA has locked exclusivity with Microsoft for Titanfall to only be on Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.
Oh I see. You mean just like Mass Effect. That was an Xbox 360/PC exclusive as well. You know, I see a trend here. EA.....
Personally, I dont care. Its a shame for the other PS4 owners who enjoy shooters. key thing for me though is, there was ever intention of bringing Titanfall to Playstation 4 and unbeknown to the company who made it, EA made an exclusivity deal.
However, the reaction from Vince Zampella on twitter was that he was massively disapointed, and that leads me to believe that Titanfall 2 will come multiplatform.
When I get done with Killzone, Battlefield, Infamous, The Order, Destiny, Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed 4, Gran Turismo 6, Blacklight, Planetside 2, Warframe, Borderlands 2 for Vita, The Walking Dead series, Evil Within, and Infamous a second time because that game looks fucking amazing I'll pick up Titanfall 2 for my PS4.
Yeah I'm a total fanboy, I already have my PS4 controller and I'm playing Battlefield with it and it's hellacious
who cares, if it were a new groundbreaking game with never before seen mechanics / innovation / genre (well at least a genre defining game), i would have given two number twos about it... :)
Well, doesn't affect me to much. If I do get hyped for this game and it turns out to be an amazing game, I can get it on PC.
But right now, Im' not interested in getting it. So, when I eventually get a next-gen console I don't think this will matter all that much.
This sucks, I am planning on getting a PS4 at some point in the future and this game looks really promising... Damn assholes! :/
I'm probably the only one here that has been on the fence of which console to choose at launch, and this was the only real game I was interested in. I think I have now made my choice....
It's worth remembering that Microsoft also said that Mass Effect 1 (also published by EA) would categorically not be released on PS3 at any point and it is now readily available as part of the trilogy or as a digital download on PSN. I'm not so certain it won't be released on PS4 eventually.
This has less to do with moneybags and more to do with network infrastructure. Titanfall relies heavily on Cloud Servers to run the cloud servers handle half the CPU computations in the game. It allows for better AI physics, game system etc. it uses Microsofts cloud servers and Xbox live Compute. To date , Sony has NO cloud based servers to enhance games and has made NO announcements they plan to build one. Until they do, the Titanfall franchise will remain on Xbone. This is a win-win. If Sony makes cloud servers, it will not only enhance titanfall, but future games. Remember when 360 had Achievements and ZpS3 had no trophies? It will be the same situation here. PS4 players will be better off when Sony learns and adapts .
Interesting. I didn't realize it was coming to 360. Guess I'll be sticking with that and my PS4 until the consoles really make that current/next gen transition.
Well that sucks. But we'll survive. Don't really see the point in not bringing it to PS4, though. You'd be hard-pressed to have many people drop $500 on a console just for one FPS out of (seemingly) thousands.
But hey, what do I know? EA makes the absolute BEST decisions!
Yeah right. They said the same thing about Mass Effect, Ninja Gaiden 2, and Bioshock. Don't believe the pre launch hype. MS is flailing.
meh, no big loss to me. never really looked interesting in the first place. really, not many next gen games have, to be honest. not a whole lot of new things going on just sequels and call of dutyesqe fps'
@fernandofan08 Xbox One, best exclusives!
@mattman127 Haha this made me laugh, and you have a good point.
@Grimkillah Better no single player and a great multiplayer, instead of a half-assed single player (ie BF4) and a half-assed multiplayer.
@santer ya like the original GTAs and MGS they all made there way to xbox in the end
@wrestlemaniaw Why exactly?
Bullshit! And explain why then is coming to 360 but not PS4? Microsoft is cunning and shady as your explanation
@MOBS Fanboy alert!
@MOBS The game has to have been designed so that it can function even without live connection to the cloud, like e.g. in case of network problems, and as such all it'd require for them to bring the game to the PS4 is just rip out the cloud-code.
@MOBS I think you are seriously overestimating what those cloud servers are going to be handling.
@WantYouBad which is why you also wouldn't find me playing BF4, bad/no SP is a deal breaker for me.
Every little bit goes a long way . I've seen examples of it in GTA Online. They use cloud servers, it makes the online graphics as good as the single player. All past gens and current gen that was impossible. Also , with Rickstars cloud, more memory is available for the game system. So enemies are smarter , the game system is expanded ( you have an inventory of items, more special abilities for friends like Lester and Martin. ). Basically the cloud makes GTA online seem more like a PC game than a console game.
@MOBS You must be the life of the party.
Steam servers are just a jukebox, you douchebag. They do nothing to enhance the game . They just store it , as is. You ignorant twit actually go read the Vince Zampella article on XBL cloud used for Titanfall , and stop talking out of ignorance.
Steam jukebox cloud serves=\= Microsoft Computational Cloud servers for Xbox Live Compute. And I'm the biggest Xbox hater out there. I'm getting PS4 at launch regardless.
