This is so cool. The game is gonna rock the world, I cant wait!!!!!

"Titanfall 360 delay is about managing higher preorders, not polishing game

Pre-orders are likely over 3.5 million for Titanfall, meaning EA can afford to hold back the 360 build of mech shooter and still meet sales targets.

But it’s more likely that the publisher can afford to delay the game because preorders are so high, letting the company hit expected revenue targets for the financial year ending March 31st with the Xbox One version – and kick off the following financial year with stellar sales of the Xbox 360 version.

According to analyst Michael Pachter of Wedbush Morgan, the game could sell over 7 million copies in its first three months on shelves – the majority of which will be on the Xbox 360 due to a higher user base.

“We have modeled 3.5 million units of sell-in for the game in its release quarter, with the bulk of sales likely occurring on the Xbox 360 platform; we suspect that pre-order demand for the game is above this figure, and believe that EA expects to sell more than 7 million units overall in the game’s first three months following launch,” he wrote.

So you're bragging about the 360 on the X1 board.

That doesn't make the X1 look very good, you know.

So this is basically speculation about how the 360 version will sell more than double the Xbone version? Okay.

Those are huge pre-order numbers, even if it's obviously combined with all platforms.

Yeah, the same guy who predicted 50 million monthly players for the flopped Star Wars MMO.


That said, the game will do quite well. I expect around 2 million to 2.5 million copies sold on both xbox one and 360 in the first week.

At the end of the day, this game is going to rock =) All the Sony Camp crying about it, are just furious they don't get to play in on any of their console of choice.
