At Respawn Entertainment's request, Microsoft will be releasing an upcoming software patch that improve's Xbox One's analog inputs.

Speaking to The Verge, design lead Justin Hendry explained the reason for the change. "It's just fixing the controller input, really. It wasn't really where we felt it should be; it was a little overly twitchy with the current controls. Now it's fixed. We're happy with it."

Have you found the controls to be a bit "overly twitchy" in other first-person shooters for Xbox One like Call of Duty and Battlefield? Is this update something the FPS fanbase will rally behind? Something tells me the guys at Respawn know what they're talking about.

They really needed an update for THIS?

Next Gears incoming. Remember the extra Ram Epic asked for, this kind of reminds me of the same thing. MSoft is going out of their way for this title. Just has me thinking something is up.

I think Microsoft REALLY wants to hit it out of the park with Titanfall. They might be able to gain some momentum on Sony if they have the first must-own title of this young gen.

Microsoft constantly looking to improve on a already great controller. LOL

I doubt It is the hardware end of the controller though. Respawn just needed a tweak for the game. No biggy.

It is for sure what they are going for. MSoft wants to own 2014 which goes along with their get great games early in the life cycle philosophy.

The fact that M$ jumped to it for this developer speaks volume. It shows M$ will bend over backward for developers to assist them in getting their games where they want them to be. Sony never did this for developers on the PS2 or PS3. They only catered to their inhouse developers. Obviously Respawn wants this game as perfect as can be and they probably received feedback after the Alpha about this issue.

It's better then the DS3, but not the Xbox 360 or XB1 controllers. The XB1 d-pad is even better then DS4's now. I can't believe how precise it is playing KI. Blew me away.

So you're telling me that a controller with a huge and annoying AAA batteries box under (360's controller obviously) and another controller with mediocre LB/RB placement is better than the most ergonomic and perfectly engineered one? You lemmingness is showing. People cry about the lights on DS4 but they aren't even noticeable so wtf all ya'll crying about? Oh yeah,,,, i forgot... to find something negative about the stellar system called the PSQuad you have to be nitpicky as f*ck!

I literally laugh out loud, even blackace does not believe his own post anymore. XB1 need software and yet controller is still trash because bad mad catz design and MS cannot patch cheap stick and grip that bruise thumb. USing KI as proof is selfown, even developer has abandon MS. DS4 is best controller in gaming, TLHBO.

What momentum did they lose? They are 1.2 million apart despite a whole bad rep before launch and $100 more expensive in less countries.

I'm not crying about anything. I've used all 4 controllers for hours. That's my opinion. Don't like it Tough shit. Most of the gamers who love the DS3 & DS4 has never played for hours and hours with a XBox 360 or XB1 controller in their hands. So it's easy to see why they prefer the DS3 & DS4. lol!! Being a true gamer has it's advantages.

No, YOU don't believe my posts because your a bias troll. LOL!! You've never even used an Xbox 360 or XB1 controller for hours, so how would you know what is trash and what isn't. You're just spouting complete BS. KI is a great fighter. You don't know, because you haven't played it. The only trash I see is what you're typing on the forums. Stop embarrassing yourself kid. Get a job and stay off of SW.

Neogaf is developer website and they use all controller and prefer DS4. Tough shit that MS invest 100 million and result is cheap mad catz design. Black ace and kingtits please do not cry.

Pics of all four controllers/consoles with your username, date and time or you will be subject to ridicule, public humiliation and called a liar.

Yes I have use all controller but I will not invest time of XB1 controller because is downgrade from 360 and such bad design, even hardcore xbox fan admit this. 360 controller was many fault as well, such as skittle candy button, dpad, crap bumper. Original xbox s controller is best MS controller.

I think easy fix to this is MS patch in superior DS4 support. Then developer and gamer can be happy.

You act as if MSoft does this for every dev.......they don't.

Cows continue to be absolute jelly about Titanfall. I am sure you have a PC that will play it though, but when it launches it will be played most on a MSoft console.

it is built on source engine,

it can be played on Linux as open gl is written directly into source,

so it doesn't have to be at some point,

and no you don't have to play it on xbox

It'll take more than a software update for a controller (!) and a multiplatform last gen port to save the Bone, especially at how the flat the rest of the year is.

Seriously, I thought Titansnore was supposed to be a twitch shooter and the analogue sticks were "too twitchy?" Couldn't the casuals in the focus group keep the Smart Pistol steady for long enough to get three instakills?
