    Titanfall System Seller Confirmed?

    This is amazing for MS and for the XBOX ONE in general. This is only for UK so imagine the US..... I expect March NPD numbers for the XBOX ONE to be through the roof

    I'm not in the least bit surprised that it's shifting consoles. At the moment there is very little other new games being released and it has been MS marketed to death. The trick for MS to stay in the game here is for these sales to be a consistent picture, not just every now and then when a big release comes along. Only time will tell on that front - have to say though that most of my gaming friends when ahead and bought the X1 despite my protestations - mainly because they didn't want to lose their existing friends list.

    Not to sound negative, but this is meaningless until we get the numbers of how many units were Sold the week before this 96% jump. For all we know it could have been 1k units;3k units. We dont know.

    ^ I agree, until MS finally discloses and releases some actual numbers, this is meaningless. But anything with a high percentage attached to anything IMO is good ahahahahah :P

    The release of Titanfall boosted Xbox One sales by a whopping 96 per cent in the UK compared to the console's sales the previous week.

    Respawn's PC and Xbox One shooter is the UK's best-selling game, as expected, and is the biggest release of 2014 so far with more than double the sales of what had been 2014's current leader, FIFA 14, Chart-Track revealed. The Xbox 360 version releases in a couple of weeks.

    The eye-catching 399 Xbox One Titanfall bundle, which includes a download token of the game, accounted for over 70 per cent of all Xbox One hardware sold last week.

    It should be noted that Chart-Track doesn't track digital sales, but the company confirmed to Eurogamer this morning that sales of the download token from the Titanfall hardware bundle are included in its figures.

    This is what MS has been banking on since release so I wouldn't be surprised.

    %96, so the price is the reason they are losing ? Interesting actually. This tells alot if it passes ps4 just with the discount.

    I wonder when MS will announce the figures? They're not known for keeping quiet about amazing sales.

    Yeah the price is the main inhibitor for X1 in the UK, no doubt about that, but what I think I'm seeing from my Xbox Live friends' list is a lot of them waiting for the price to drop, rather than jump to the PS4 like I did. This despite my best argument to get them to come to the blue side.

    In its opening week it almost doubled the sales of the previous week.

    Of course you could say that the previous week everybody was waiting for the bundle to be released and held off purchasing the X1. That's why I said we need to see sustained sales

    Tifanfall is going to have long legs. there isn't another Halo game coming out and COD/BF are already old news. i can't think of another shooter coming out in the next 6 months that would trump TF.

    we're getting Planet Side 2 but that's a totally different beast and it's not being marketed right...or at all. If MS has Planet Side 2, it would probably get the sales it deserved. There is destiny but that game is for nerds, not everyone. Destiny will obviously have longer legs but TF is unique due to the market it appeals to and the sub-genre it belongs to.

    The difference here is Planetside 2 is a free game. If MS had planetside 2, you would have to pay for the game.

    Yes, you'd have to pay for Live in order to play Planet Side 2 but the game itself is an MMO and those generally don't create the buzz that competitive MP games do. MMOs are also difficult to get into. PS2 is free but there are microtransactions as it's difficult to obtain weapons/ammo. i suppose it would be difficult to play the game if you were in a guild where it is expected to move forward together.

    why? it's a thread about a game improving the sales of Xbox. what has that got to do in any way with "we" need to know about PS4 sales.

    you're right, that would probably be better for the VS thread. but i guess this thread would've already been in there if the sales had jumped more than PS4's i suppose.

    i'm surprised the PC version is in there at all. certainly a system seller. and i think it will likely stay there for a while.
