Titanfall not strong enough to keep Xbox One sales on par with PS4

Sony on Thursday announced that it sold over 7 million PlayStation 4 units, significantly more than what it envisioned for its fiscal year 2013. Microsoft made its own announcement yesterday as well, highlighting the strong sales of Titanfall, a shooter game that’s not available on the PS4, and which was named the number one selling game in March according to NPD numbers. However, while Titanfall has helped Microsoft sell more Xbox One units, it wasn’t enough to keep Xbox One sales on par with PS4 sales. More →

Titanfall 2 has reportedly been picked up by EA, could appear on PS4

Titanfall, the biggest online FPS of 2014 so far, has done more than just live up to the hype, it’s given EA an incentive to publish the sequel. GameSpot reports that EA has secured the rights for Titanfall 2 based on the performance of the first title, which helped double Xbox One sales in the UK earlier this month. EA was unwilling to comment on this rumor from GameSpot’s “reputable source.” More →

Titanfall Xbox 360 Release Date

Titanfall for the Xbox 360 has been delayed until next month

Titanfall for the Xbox 360 has been delayed until next month

Being stuck in the last generation of consoles doesn’t mean you’ll have to miss out on one of the biggest games of 2014, but it does mean you’ll have to wait a little bit longer to get your hands on it. EA announced on Thursday that the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall has been pushed back to April 8th in the United States and April 11th in Europe. Bluepoint Games, the developer of the last-gen version, was originally planning to have Titanfall ready for a March 25th release, but Bluepoint and EA “see a few things that can be made even better,” so the game has been delayed. EA is promising the full Titanfall experience on the Xbox 360 — it’ll be a few more weeks before we can see the game in action and decide for ourselves.

Xbox One hardware sales double in one key market thanks to Titanfall debut

Microsoft has never been able to establish as strong a presence in the console market overseas as it has in the U.S., but Titanfall’s launch appears to be making waves. MCV reports that Xbox One sales increased 96% in the week following the release of Titanfall, which reached the number 1 spot on the UK game charts. Xbox One Titanfall bundles accounted for 70% of those sales, as hesitant consumers finally took the plunge for the promise of a free game. This marks EA’s first non-FIFA number 1 hit since last March. We’ll keep an eye out to see how Titanfall’s release affected Xbox One sales in other regions as well.

Does Titanfall Live Up To The Hype

Does Titanfall live up to the massive hype?

Does Titanfall live up to the massive hype?

Titanfall is quite possibly the most fun any of us will have with a video game in 2014. It’s not perfect, it’s not especially robust, it doesn’t offer limitless customization or even a real campaign, but the sheer joy of movement coupled with some of the most intense action of any online shooter in console history more than makes up for any missing features.

Titanfall may come to a Mac near you after all

Titanfall may already be played on a Mac, assuming the OS X machine meets minimum requirements for the game to run properly and that Windows is installed on it beforehand. But a made for Mac Titanfall version may be just around the corner co-founder of Respawn Entertainment revealed on Twitter. “We are talking to Aspyr, they should do it,” the exec said, answering to a question about whether the company is considering launching a Mac version of its popular new release.

Surprise: Xbox Live crashes amid Titanfall launch [updated]

Titanfall is one of the year’s most anticipated games and it’s been getting rave reviews so far that say it’s lived up to the hype. However, the launch of Titanfall coincided with the crash on Xbox Live for many users, a fact that Microsoft Xbox Live programming director Larry Hryb acknowledged on his Twitter feed on Tuesday evening. Specifically, Hryb said that Microsoft was working to fix issues that were preventing many gamers from signing into Xbox Live although he insisted that “this is not a Titanfall issue.” More →

48GB Titanfall Install on Minimum Specification PC

Massive Titanfall install is required on slower PCs

Massive Titanfall install is required on slower PCs

Respawn found a way to offer gamers a better Titanfall gameplay experience on slower PCs, although that means buyers should have plenty of storage on their hard drives to install a massive 48GB version of the game. That’s 31GB more than the Xbox One install that comes in at 17GB, and it all has to do with audio files, Eurogamer has learned. More →

Titanfall 1080p Update

Huge Titanfall update could bring 1080p gameplay

Huge Titanfall update could bring 1080p gameplay

We’ve been reading a lot about pixels lately, as they pertain to new video game consoles from Sony and Microsoft. This game is true 1080p, that game isn’t true 1080p, the other game is 1080p on one console but not on the other… it’s all a bit tedious for outsiders, but it’s obviously an issue for hardcore gamers. And rightfully so — suggesting 1080p doesn’t offer any advantage over lower-resolution gaming is akin to suggesting 720p video is just as clear as 1080p video.

When it comes to the Xbox One’s biggest title to date, the bad news is that Titanfall definitely does not support native 1080p right now. As it turns out, however, there may be some good news on the horizon because the game’s developer has confirmed that it may offer an update that bumps gameplay up to 1080p. More →

Titanfall launch event attracts huge lines at SXSW

Microsoft hosted a huge launch party at SXSW on Monday night in order to celebrate the release of Titanfall, and it appears to have been one of the most-attended events of the show so far. Tiernan Ray of Barron’s took a few photos of the around-the-block lined that formed for the event, attracting hundreds of gamers and curious passersby trying to get an early look at the most hyped game of 2014 so far. According to one security guard, Microsoft was letting in blocks of 150 attendees at a time, a sign of the enormous crowd. The mech-wrangling FPS has drawn the attention of gamers and investors alike as Xbox One sales continue to lag behind the PlayStation 4. It’s still far too early for doomsaying, but the market demands drama, so we’ll see whether or not Titanfall can put the Xbox One on more equal footing with the PS4. Check out the photos below.

Here’s why Xbox One’s Titanfall might have been even more amazing on PS4

Titanfall is easily one of the mostly hotly anticipated Xbox exclusives of early 2014, but would this awesome mech-style first-person shooter have made an even better PlayStation 4 game? The title, developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts, takes place on a worn-torn planet and pits players against each other in head-to-head online multiplayer battles. Early reviews of the Titanfall beta for the Xbox One have been quite positive, but one industry watcher has raised a fairly interesting point that ponders if the title might have made an even better PlayStation 4 game.
