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

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.

Titanfall maps, modes and weapons revealed in massive leak

The release of Titanfall is just over a week away, but much of the game was shrouded in mystery until Reddit user FallenFusion unveiled several screenshots and previously unknown details this week. According to the leak, Titanfall will feature 15 maps at launch, at least 5 modes, 9 campaign matches and the ability to “regenerate” (similar to prestige in Call of Duty) once you’ve reached the highest attainable rank in multiplayer. A detailed list from the thread can be seen below. More →

The most anticipated Xbox One title of the year won’t run at 1080p

Resolution might not matter to you, but for a lot of gamers, it’s the biggest issue facing the Xbox One right now. Every developer with a multiplatform title has had to put up with a tenuous group of consumers who are frustrated by the disparity in visual quality, and now the developer of the most anticipated Xbox One exclusive of the year has confirmed that even Titanfall won’t be able to reach full HD.

PS4 vs. Xbox One Bundle Sales

Not even an Xbox One Titanfall bundle can slow down PS4 mania

Not even an Xbox One Titanfall bundle can slow down PS4 mania

The upcoming Xbox One Titanfall bundle is a brilliant move by Microsoft to encourage hesitant gamers to reconsider picking up the new console, but it might not be having as big of an impact as the company had hoped. DualShockers noticed that GameStop started taking preorders on a PlayStation 4 bundle that includes Infamous: Second Son, an extra controller and one year of PlayStation Plus for $570 (I’ll spare you the math: there’s no discount on that bundle), yet it currently tops the best-selling list on GameStop’s website. The Xbox One Titanfall bundle is sitting at No. 12. More →

Xbox One Titanfall bundle coming March 11th for $499.99

If you’ve been debating whether or not to pick up an Xbox One, it’s worth noting that Microsoft just sweetened the pot. Starting on March 11th, select retailers will begin offering a limited edition Titanfall bundle of the Xbox One for $499.99. It’s almost identical to the standard package that is currently sitting on store shelves, including the price, but the bundle will include a free copy of Titanfall, one of the most anticipated releases of the year. Sales of the Xbox One have been gradually sliding behind the PlayStation 4 since launch, but this deal will certainly get the attention of the consumers who have yet to decide on a next-gen console. You can preorder the bundle right now from the Microsoft Store.

Titanfall Xbox One Exclusive

Here’s how Microsoft stole the biggest game of 2014 for the Xbox One

Here’s how Microsoft stole the biggest game of 2014 for the Xbox One

Respawn Entertainment astonished everyone at E3 last year with the unveiling of Titanfall, a first-person shooter with an emphasis on traversal and giant mechs. The game had members of the press falling over each other to express their excitement, which made Microsoft’s exclusivity deal all the more impressive. At some point during the development of the multiplatform title from the team behind the most popular Call of Duty games of all time, Microsoft swooped in and stole the game away from the PlayStation consoles. So how did they do it? More →

Titanfall preview: Is this the final nail in the coffin for the single-player FPS?

Titanfall preview: Is this the final nail in the coffin for the single-player FPS?

Having spent more hours than I’d like to admit with the Titanfall beta this weekend, I can honestly say that I’m no longer concerned about whether or not a single-player campaign is featured in my first-person shooters. The developers at Respawn Entertainment decided early on that Titanfall would be a multiplayer-only experience, and in doing so have effectively embarrassed all the other game makers that have their fingers in too many pies.
