Titanfall can suck my ass. It's all about KZ:Shadowfall for me.
Don't get me wrong, I'm a mech fan big time. If they did make a campaign I would have already bought the system and pre-ordered the game. I used to like playing games like Virtual On, Mechwarrior and Armored Core (Until the series went weird). Supposedly some of the multiplayer maps play like a campaign from what I've heard but of course you can be submerged in a full campaign feel in multiplayer.
Also, no PS4 release is shady as fuck. EA must not have confidence in the product to take the kind of one time payout required in this day and age to guarantee exclusivity for Microsoft platforms. The long term dividends would have been FAR greater to go full on cross platform.
I'm sure MS gave a fuckton of money for the exclusivity, probably $40-$50 million range I'd guess.
Atleast enough to offset the profits Titanfall would've brought on Sony's platforms.
But you are flat out wrong if you don't thnk EA could have made at least SOME more money with a quality product released cross platform. Over the lifespan of the game? With DLC?
I have a hard time believing that. If the game's primary function is multiplayer versus, where will it find the time to indulge the very elements that comprise a single player campaign and separate it from all the fragging?
Maybe this game'll be different. I guess we'll see.
Well shit, dude.
Thanks for taking the wind out of the sails of the S.S. /Taisorant.
So far the lack of any preview of the 360 version has me thinking one of two things....
1.) Its a shoddy port in comparison and will be reviewed as such.
2.) Its a good port for the 360 and they are trying to sell XBone's so they don't want folks to "settle" for the 360 version and pony up the 5 bills.
Got my boner last week to get in on this. Been playing Dead Rising 3 in the meantime.
Very ready for tomorrow. Much fun expected.
