    Thumbs up 'TitanFall' developer: Xbox made the most sense

    Respawn Entertainment surprised everyone when its Call of Duty meets mecha mash-up game, TitanFall, was announced for the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC but not the PS4 or PS3. Designer Fairfax McCandlish explained in an interview released Monday why an EA published game ended up only on Xbox consoles.

    McCandlish told Edge that the deciding factor came down to Microsoft's expertise in providing a solid online experience along with the promise of cloud servers to host TitanFall.


    "Weíre a very small team, so we had to pick a platform if we were going to be on consoles," McCandlish explained, "and Xbox made the most sense. I feel that, in terms of multiplayer and communal gaming, Microsoft is like the Apple of videogames. You can just start your game without finding your disc, you can go to your friendís place and your saves are all there, and with the cloud servers you donít ever have to worry about transferring between hosts or bad latency."


    McCandlish's statement echoes an earlier sentiment from Respawn engineer Jon Shiring who picked out the benefits of going with cloud servers as no more host advantage, plenty of available bandwidth, no host migrating, no hacked host cheating, and "lightning fast" matchmaking among other items.

    likely the feature where you can install your games but i thought they took that out.

    and Xbox made the most sense because they were paid for it. no sane person/company would come out with a game with a multiplat engine (i assume) just to put it on one console. that isn't intelligent.

    regardless of what they like about the Xbox, you don't have to like a platform to make money on it.

    Yeah, that's what I thought they meant, but that supposedly is gone; the part w/o the disc of course.

    right, it's interesting that they still mention it...assuming this is new. i mean, they could still keep that feature right? maybe it is hinting at an option to input the DRM so you could do that.

    It came from a Magazine so most likely a dated interview.

    It was the most money so it made the most sense. Not saying they aren't happy with XBone but money was their driving factor. Just like every exclusive.

    They mean digital download = no disk because you bought it on the XBL store.

    If you didnt need the disk anyone can install it and play it for free.

    That doesn't make sense to put it as a bullet point though. That can be done on consoles and handhelds. It isn't a Microsoft exclusive feature.

    exactly what i was going to say. it has to be the feature they had or maybe will still have.

    just the way they worded that, would not suggest a digital download.

    What do you say Sufi? Sounds like he was paid to say this. Game looks nice and all but lets hope that it has staying power.

    pretty much all console-specific news, i feel like may be paid off in some ways. it's just marketing. i'm sure it's not always paid but there can be just an interest. sometimes it's just devs wanting to voice their opinion. but yea, just PR to keep the interests up.

    Neither are dedicated servers yet they make it sound like its a new amazing exclusive feature.

    To be honest both systems will fill up in about 2 months with all games people like downloaded. Hell MGS4 was over 45 GB. Games like that times 8 and machine is full already lol. I hate new years for new systems. Just come out already so WE GAMERS can compare and contrast.
