I don't know how many copies of the game were sold, but evidently MS, Respawn and EA don't seem to be too upset about where it stood for March. i wasn't calling anyone out personally. If you didn't notice I used it in a plural sense.
    But I dont see MS shouting any Xbone Titanfall numbers so its a fair bet that it didnt hit the number on Xbone that MS was hoping for. If it did MS would be bragging like Sony did about Infamous selling 1 million in 9 days. Heaven knows the Xbone can use whatever positive PR it can get right now. And MS never passes on the opportunity to brag up great sales. But they have been oddly quiet about Xbone Titanfall numbers.

    Well, titanfall is not a Microsoft studio game. They didn't publish it. I would thnk EA would be the one to release those numbers. As far as pr, that all depends on where you go to get your gaming news. Updates, e3 talk and Phil's promotion have been good things IMO. Having the no1 selling game on your console isn't too bad either. they could of done better on the hardware side, but overall, it's much better than it could of been.

    um no it does matter lol. and SS wasn't nearly as hyped, are you kidding me? those things matter, yes. also titanfall was out on PC as well, even if it sold a few dozen copies, that helps.

    Oh it did sell some systems. We won't call any any names of the ones who bought it though....lol
    right, i'm sure minecraft sold some systems too, the point is that it wasn't a system seller people like yourself were hoping it to be.

    before we keep going in circles more, a "system seller" implies that it would sell "a lot more" systems than "some".

    But MS took on a publisher role by paying for the development of the game. I know you read that article. And thats why MS got the exclusitivity. So in that respect it might as well have been a MSG game. It was sure marketed like one. As for being the number one selling game it was on 3 platforms afterall with huge marketing. And again why no Xbone Titanfall numbers? Surely MS would be boasting.

    Yep exactly. In fact MS would be shouting those numbers from the rooftops instead of just being silent about it. MS has never been shy about shouting out numbers in the past when they have done well.

    The game just barely released the end of March. Maybe they will release numbers soon. Oh, and be careful how you use the word "if".

    They paid for the exclusive rights, they should be touting sales alongside EA. They wouldn't spend all that money for it to be on their system and let EA steal all the thunder just because they published.

    really? you don't think MS could have ever sold more than they did...in some other dimension? the dimension i speak of, in there, they didn't **** up nearly as bad.

    seriously, what is this, the special Olympics? everyone's a winner?

    Well if you help fund or save a project wouldn't you want exclusive rights? I know I would. It's a win- win for Ms and Ea. Ea gets to publish one of the years biggest titles and Ms gets exclusive rights. There is no deadline for talking sales about the game. I think it coming in first for March speaks for itself. EA and MS may have different expectations for the game.

    oh come off it. games that sell really well always make headlines in the first weeks, much less months. hell even SS' sales were revealed fairly quickly.

    we all know TF did well but if Infamous SS was second in line and it had 10 days to sell for the rest of the month, it may not be that high of a number. summer usually has low sales.

    i'm thinking they are going to wait until 360 sales are high enough and release the number at E3. I'm sure the game will sell a combined 6m or maybe more but it likely didn't sell as much as they thought (at launch).

    the damn console only shipped like 1.2m for the first quarter...we don't even know how many of them are really sold yet. they just don't have the user base yet to make millions of sales right away. once those consoles are in people's hands, i'm positive the software sales will go up accordingly.

    Of course there is no deadline but considering MS is trying to gain some traction with a major title that they paid exclusive rights for, I see no reason to hang around and wait for EA to deliver some numbers. I'm not saying Titanfall didn't sell well. I'm saying that the position they are in, they can use the positive publicity. Why wait?

    do you really think releasing titanfall numbers will change anything? They have had plenty of good and bad press. They are don't it right. Let the games do the talking and concentrate on the strengths of the console. If you are one of those people who already have your mind made up, nothing they say or do will probably change anything. We've already seen that. They can't stop journalist from writing what they want. Half of the stuff is just opinions anyway. Things like titanfall being the no1 game in March is exactly what they need to be doing. Getting more exclusives content. But either way people are going to put there own spin on it regardless. Having a good show at e3 is another way to do it, and I think that's exactly what they will do.

    Releasing the numbers would be better than letting articles float around calling it a non-system seller.

    Unless of course it is a non-system seller.

    Just wondering, I don't ever recall them making headlines with their game sale numbers.

    Either way, Titanfall seems to be working just fine in the UK if not the US.



    If these are reflected in the US then I would say PC had little impact on Titanfall sales.

    so you don't think TF sales will be revealed close to E3 or at E3?

    Yeah I know, changed my post, but it does extrapolate across.

    Also, in terms of PC sales, PC doesn't even get on the charts. Which doesn't surprise me, most sales would be digital and not counted either NPD or the UK.

    Titanfall appears (in the UK at least) to be a fairly steady burn of sales. It has a lot of legs.

    Probaly in their fiscal release next week, if at all, this game is still selling.
