    Found the answer.

    http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Tit...day-62660.html

    You won't have to wait much longer to find out whether Titanfall lives up to the hype. Reviews for Respawn's first game will begin landing on the morning of March 10th, a day before the game's North American launch on Xbox One and PC.

    Other online-only games like Diablo 3 and SimCity couldn't be reviewed until launch day because the servers weren't up yet. However, Respawn already has the Titanfallservers online so that reviewers can try out the game. It's a great move because it means that gamers can read reviews on the game before they make their purchase.
    Yeah, makes sense. Can't just play Titanfall like you would a normal game. Servers have to be ready. duh....MP only.

    Not the only indicator, but hardly something to "psshh" away either. Sure Titanfall is going to sell some X1s. Already is. The infamous bundle is indicative of PS4's overall demand more than demand for the game. As F34R pointed out, it is the only PS4 version available at GS right now.

    Uh...scratch that. Now, there is also a Call of Duty bundle as well. Yeah, it is outselling the Titanfall bundle as well. But still, demand for PS4 itself (regardless of game bundle) is extremely high.

    Infamous and call of duty ps4 bundles are outselling the Titanfall standalone copies on gamestop's site.

    we're comparing two very different games so it's not going to be straightforward which one is more popular. at this point, we can agree that both are and both will likely push console sales...considering it's so early into the generation...there's nothing else to play.

    Titanfall is definitely the more popular/hyped game.

    Xbone always has stock on shelves but sales were half of what the ps4 sold in jan.

    Xbone boost in sales will definitely be because of TitanFall. Can't say the same about Infamous and PS4 sales going hand in hand.

    Destiny and Middle Earth: Shadows of Mordor is all I need for the rest of the year.

    honestly due to the high demand PS4 already has...i wouldn't be surprised if it helped with the demand but the problem is still the supply so we may not see the affects because the console is already selling so high.

    what i will say though is that...i think Infamous will hold its own as it's so early into the generation. I'm definitely seeing more popularity for this game than it has gotten previously but to me, it's still a B+ game, not an A game...but due to the circumstances, it might at least sell 2-3m.

    Titanfall is definitely a wild card, i don't really know how it's going to be in sales but i can imagine that it would be at least as good as any popular game should be selling. i just can't say at this point that the sales will be COD good. especially since it's not multiplat...it also doesn't have SP, it's not going to be out on PS3/PS4. there are some things that are likely going to hurt the sales since COD doesn't have to put up with those issues.

    i'm thinking it will get around 3-5m lifetime sales and more in sequels...especially if it goes multiplat. but yeah, we'll see how it goes.

    I wonder how much it will sell on the PC since the graphics aren't dominating anything GPU wise. It is possible it could sell more on the PC.

    It won't sell worth $#@! on PC. PC gamers are very high maintenance. There are enough games on PC to ignore this title. COD sells like $#@! on PC. I think BF probably sells more.

    it is likely going to sell the most on 360 and then X1. PC will likely sell less than 1m lifetime.

    I predict Titan fall sells good the first week then drops sharply when people get bored. With no story per say there is nothing to invest you in the game.

    I agree. You need a story to know who your fighting, why, what's at stake, etc...

    I disagree. You could say similar things about some single player only games which doesn't offer the replay value.

    It does if youre a SP guy just like MP does if youre a MP guy. I replay my SP games all the time. Replay value is subjective.

    This guy nailed it, imo.

    The total lack of single-player capability is at odds with most other FPS games. If the likes of Call of Duty or Halo can provide both single- and multiplayer modes for the same price tag, it doesn’t seem right that Titanfall can’t. While Respawn and EA are cutting down on the price of development by foregoing single-player, those savings aren’t being passed on to gamers, which is the concerning part of the game. At the very least, including an offline AI bot mode would seem to be a no-brainer, but it’s not here for whatever reason.

    What won't we agree on? Speak with your wallet. Let them know that you won't buy an online only game for $60. I'm not sure what there is to agree or disagree about.

    yeah.....goes beyond "don't buy it if you don't like it", imo. Agree with the author on this point as well.

    Yet Titanfall is also a worrisome product that delivers only a fraction of what competing games – including Call of Duty – do, for the same price tag. That sets a worrying precedent where gamers are set to get less game for the same money. As the next generation of consoles takes root, this is both a commercial and an artistic concern.

    there's no way to justify a mp only game for the full msrp MS and Respawn are asking their consumers for. not enough content, especially with that ridiculously overpriced collectors edition.

    I think there's nothing wrong pricing x1's biggest game yet for the full 60 usd even it is mp only, i mean you know what you are getting when going to buy it. On the same count, it wouldn't be right to dock the game points in reviews because it is mp only, it has been known since inception that this is a multiplayer game.

    I don't mind paying $60 for a MP only game if I get $60 worth of playability out of it and it has to come to my standard in that case. If Battlefield 5 was polished when it released with hardly any horrible bugs in the game, that game would be worth $60 if it was MP only.

    If people feel it's a worthy purchase for them, I really don't see a problem in it. Sure, the game could be cheaper, but I'm not really bothered by it.

    so by that logic, if we knew that a game was $#@!ty from the inception then it shouldn't also get docked right? wrong.

    if it has enough content to justify the cost then that's why it shouldn't get docked, not the way you suggest it.

    Of course their $#@!s, but we all knew this back in the 90's even before Xbox. As for EA, this comes as no surprise and I'm wondering if respawn is kind of screwed in this whole deal as if it was their decision or EA.

    Is Respawn owned by EA or is EA just their publisher for this Titanfall series?
