Titanfall's launch for Xbox One this month helped Xbox Live on the platform enjoy its "biggest week in terms of users and usage," Xbox boss Phil Spencer told GameSpot today at GDC.

Spencer didn't reveal specific Xbox Live usage statistics, and he doesn't have access to Titanfall sales numbers because the game is published by Electronic Arts.

The very same day that Titanfall launched earlier this month, Xbox Live suffered through stability and connectivity issues, but this was not the game's fault, Microsoft said.

@chev9342 you say TLOU is not a shooter because it is not a "military" shooter

going by your logic,even titanfall is not a shooter because it is a sci-fi shooter,HUH!!


moreover THE ORDER 1886 <b>(one of the only two AAA ps4 exclusives this year,if you ignore a baseball game)</b> is a third person shooter with quick time events,looks like you don't even know anything about PS4

How much does M$ pay in order to get a free pass when people troll Nintendo so much when Nintendo "just making rehashes"? This must be the 1000th time M$ is just throwing money at a third party developer to make them another FPS game. What's next, another racing game? Oh wait.

I remember when i had an atari and a friend of mine had intellivision. we would argue which one was better...then it was atari 5200 vs. colecovision vs. vectrex...then it was sega mastersystem vs. the nintendo nes...this was like 30 something years ago!!!!! man, you kids still are at it. when you finally get a job, you can afford both systems. and play both games...AND..computer games too. but see, by that time you will be busy with work and you cant play 10 hours everyday anymore. My advice...chill out on the fanboy hate and enjoy. You're only arguing because you can't play the exclusives the other system has. Sony fanboys "i hate halo...wouldn't want to play it..." xbox fanboys "I hate last of us...". When you're younger, like really young, you will make fun and say disrespectful things to people, especially on the internet. its just..sad

<< LINK REMOVED >> You are totally missing the point. There will always be war, between countries, football clubs and even consoles. It's in our nature as men. At least this war does no harm. It's better then the clash between relegion where people die.

I'd imagine it'll be bigger once the xbox 360 version is available. I've been burned out on Titanfall after 10 days of pretty much non stop playing. Great game though and it definitely lives up to the hype.. so few games do.

They should make you sign in with you gamer tag..that way we know ps owners xbox owners i swear some dont even own systems. Pay attention to comments. Ms know the field was uneven due to price. Not surprised they pulled the rug to get titan fall. Theres no games for either system for real. Ms bought much needed time to work out bugs and sell a few more systems. Getting in position to strike again. Who ever is doing marketing for ms is good. These attack are planned. Sony not looking but they should be. You crazy if you think they staying close on luck.

Was this article even necessary? It doesn't tell us anything at all. Phil Spencer makes a comment with no statistical data and Eddie makes a news thread for it? Please stop doing this crap. It's embarrassing to GS and a waste of your readers time.

  1. @chev9342 , Get a past time beside this .. Chev9342 , First , Xbox 360 did have mainly fps exclusives but that was because the market of gamers are/were into that . Hence the same number of sold console unit for the ps3 and 360 right now , give or take a million but top fps always outsold the top single player game .
  2. Second , PS4 will be more powerful than xbox one , its facts . Software from the xbox one like the DirectX 12 may help them get 1080 and 60 fps games . Who Cares as long as the games are fun and look sweet too .
  3. Third , Xbox always had games from fps to variety of third person to rpg .. you wanted a list of Xbox one games that are NOT fps , racing games .. ok then quantum break is a third person game like uncharted series (which I love) . Will it suck ? I hope not since as a gamer , I want all games to be sweet as hell and not like Alien marines . Sunset overdrive from the maker of ratchet and clank( Other series that I love!) , Yup , Sunset is for xbox one . A few kinect games are coming which I hope are good but I doubt it .
  4. But Xbox doesnt just do FPS and Racing game , here is list of past games tho they were not in the spotlight like Halo or that , They are great games to be playing. First , Up to bat , Crackdown for the xbox 360 again , third person. Alot of ppl didnt play it not because it wasnt good except number 2 :P But 360 was mainly fps players only . Fable was adventure/rpg ,Mass effect 1. Alan wake , left for dead , Shadow Complex (good indie game), AkiaKatana , Lost Odyssey (great game btw in my books) , minecraft (Dont know what ppl see in that game but that my loss ) and of course The Witcher 1 and 2 .
  5. Am not a fan of any system , I own PS2 , PS3 , Xbox , Xbox 360 ,Wii ,DS , PSP, NES , SNES and Xbox one , The reason for the xbox one over the PS4 , simple put my brothers are fanboy of xbox and I wanted to play online with them . I will be getting PS4 next year for all there first party games like The order 1886 ( I hope its good) and the Past series games like the last of us and uncharted series plus some ratchet and clank !

So the only way XB1 can survive this generation of console wars is via game exclusivity? I wonder if team XB would have enjoyed as many sales if Titanfall was available to PS4 as well...


Sorry but news like this makes Microsoft sound so pathetic.

You can replace XB1 with PS4 and that first statement would be true. There's no point in buying console A if it plays the exact same games as console B and vice versa. Exclusives are what causes gamers to want a console.

The only thing Sony won last gen was a massive amount of lost money. I hope they turn it around this gen but with the dead weight of the rest of the company I'm very doubtful.

Actually it does affect it in a major way. Look at the closures project cancelations and layoffs that Sony has had and will continue to have. That equals exclusives or features they have to cut. It also means delays because of limited assets that might have to be focused on only one or two things at a time. And the company as a whole can't survive off of the PS4 alone, it's just too huge of a corporation. You can't make games for free. The PS3 has had the best exclusives for the past r years but before that the 360 has some very great games, both indie and AAA. They had more JRPG's than the PS3 and some very underrated games. But those points are of personal opinion.

<< LINK REMOVED >> well know i'll spoil my fanboy image that has formed by saying this,but i as always will give my honest opinion

first: making this an argument that sony is suffering huge losses or took nothing but loss last generation is rather stupid because it doesn't affectthe quality of games being offered as we have seen in last gen

Second: ps3 had the best exclusives and this is an unquestionable fact

third: a company which is surviving only on one product will always try to do best to make that product more successful and so expect SONY to try harder this year

No, defending a lifeless company that doesn't care whether you exist or not equals stupidity.
