Of EA. Respawn apparently didn't learn about this til after the back room deal had been made.

Thus the first Titanfall wont be on PS4 but they are open to future Titanfalls being multi-plat unless EA pulls another back room deal without informing Respawn of their intentions again.

Don't forget that you can also get the most out of Titanfall by purchasing it for your PC.

One of two things can happen:

1. Titanfall goes so well on the PC, Xbox One and Xbox 360 that Microsoft will see there is big money to be had, and pay for future titles (if they come about) to be exclusive like the first.

2. Titanfall does indeed go multi-plat (whether or not Microsoft tried their hand at getting it exclusive again), and the franchise becomes the best things since sliced bread again, according to the rest of the gaming community.

Yup. And just think, TC, this deal was made back when MS was going through the PR ringer and early guesstimates were that they wouldn't sell nearly as many consoles as PS4. So chances are, MS had to pay through the nose for that exclusivity. They would have had to have, to make it worth EA's time. So the game devs and publisher are set to make out pigs in s***.

Now that there's console parity, or close to it, and Titanfall will sell like hot-cakes because of

a) the hype surrounding it
b) the larger than expected number of XBox One sales,

It stands to reason the next Titanfall release can be gobbled up by MS as an exclusive too, and at a much lower backroom deal price, since early hype suggests that sales will be quite brisk indeed.

I've already paid for my pre-order in full. Have you had a chance to yet?

I dont know why they thought EA would be a better publisher for them than Activision is beyond me...they are both terrible

how is a title that releases on 3 platforms "exclusive" to the XBone?

I know I'm going to enjoy playing it on my 360.

I have a few friends that are getting it on PC.

now if you would have said a "MS exclusive" that would have been accurate.

You know they call it main-stream? Its because a stream is shallow.

And that's the deal breaker.
