Not sure if Titanfall will truly drive One sales. Although I'm not personally impressed by it (it's another first person shooter and we'll see many more. not saying it's not a good first person shooter, but it's essentially battlefield with mechs... oh wait... battlefield 2142...), I know a lot of people that are. However, Titanfall is also releasing on PC. If people are patient and it comes through Steam, in a matter of weeks PC gamers will be able to grab the game for significantly less and still have the same graphic potential, same game, and even larger online community.

Yea, plus I feel like most (common) people will buy it on 360 since it is releasing earlier apparently (or was it later). I could be completely wrong though. Oh well. The game just looks like CoD with mechs to me but whatever. Support Microsoft!

It seems a lot faster-paced and more dynamic than Call of Duty to me, and the rocket pack double jump and Parkour moves could make traversing the environment more interesting. I know I'm excited. Heck, I bought a fancy new PC just to play it. Try looking up straight gameplay of it instead of watching the trailers. It's hard to find (these days it's always hard to find decent gameplay on Youtube. Used to be that you could find anything but not anymore...) but worth it, IMO.

I don't plan on playing it, but I just watched an HD gameplay video of it a few minutes ago and was pretty impressed. It looks very good, and is quite different than your standard COD FPS for sure.

@Canis, I'll take your word for it. A couple of guys I'm subscribed recently posted some vids on it so I'll check it out.

I'm not saying Titanfall's going to be a bad game or anything, I'm only saying it's a first person shooter...and the market's kind of saturated with those.

I'm sure it'll be great, but in time it will be overshadowed by another first person shooter. And that will release alongside another... And another...

And, sadly, once the next Call of Duty comes out, it'll fly off the shelves and leave Titanfall in the dust. I wouldn't be surprised if mechs were put in the next Call of Duty to compete.

We'll see, but Call of Duty is losing some serious momentum, and Titanfall, which IIRC was made by former Call of Duty developers, looks like it might just steal some of CoD's thunder. But then again, we don't know what the next Call of Duty will look like. They could do something radical that gets it lots of attention again. I do think that the series will only continue to go downhill if they put out another incramental upgrade, though, as the public is starting to tire of the formula.

FPS world can hold at least four big high profile shooters per gen. Five or Six if you count first party stuff like Halo with a fan base regardless or trends.

Beyond that the current speculation is that Titanfall and Destiny will upsur Battlefield and Call of Duty at their respective publishers.

WAT!

I dunno... Call of Duty and Battlefield aren't titans (excuse the pun) in the gaming market for nothing. We'll see since anything can happen, but I dunno..

This is an actual quote you made last month...

"There was nothing lucky or flukey about the Wii. It is a great console that appealed to a lot of people. People are so happy with it that they don't need to buy another one yet which hurts Wii U sales."

If you actually believe that, there is no way anyone can take you seriously.

This is a fact. I don't know what you're on about. People aren't upgrading from Wii to Wii U because they still have fun with the Wii. You'd notice that Wii games like Just Dance, Mario Kart or NSMB Wii are still selling consistently. These people might be casuals, they might have more than one console, but many are still happy with the Wii and they think Wii U is not worthy enough for an upgrade. This is an established fact that Nintendo is trying to change all the time.

^Or maybe they're not upgrading because they don't play games enough to justify spending hundreds of dollars again when the console doesn't offer many games that appeal to them.

Or maybe they've all moved on to the Kinect.

Speaking of Titanfall, I just noticed missed the Beta...crap. I can't believe they only had about a month of Beta Testing. Maybe I should reconsider picking it up at launch. No matter what, it's still an EA game, so it'll need months of patching before it's as good as can be...

Its quite fun but seriously over hyped, one complaint is sometimes I confuse real players with bots and end up getting killed by an actual real player from behind.

Glad I'm not the only one who thinks this hopefully the full game will have a mode just for humans.

Closest thing is inFamous: Second Son. That does look really good, btw. Dunno if its $400 good though...guess you'll have to see for yourself.

Same here ... uhm ... I hear that side-scrolling shooter the PS4 had for free at launch was pretty awesome. Maybe that's what sold all these consoles?

Does anyone think the internet frenzy could be responsible for this? Could the incessant trash talking, fear mongering, and general vile hatred toward Microsoft and Nintendo (and the facts ... lol) actually serve to swing so many consumers Sony's way? I still try to believe that internet forums alone are nowhere near representative of general, coherent thought (let alone can swing the majority of consumers), but maybe it's time to admit that I am sorely mistaken.

The latest figure I came across was the PS4 sold 5.3 million so far, I imagine they will have passed the wii u by March, the Japanese launch might even mean they surpass wii u's total sales by the end of the month.

there's nothing that's certain... of that you can be certain
