What the **** is a Corpetation?

Some kind of weird, Corpse-related mutation?

Good, exclusives are pointless and just hurt both gamers and developers in the long run.

I want to play the last of us but there's no way I'm gonna go out and buy a ps3 and the game to be able to.

Microsoft likely invested a lot into the success of titanfall. They created buzz and excitement for the game that just wouldn't have existed without Microsoft's money.

This report is idiotic. I'm sure EA would like all the potential revenue streams out there but the fact they have a huge demand they are walled off from obtaining is in no small part due to Microsoft hyping the product as their early lifecycle centerpiece.

When people played and liked Titanfall at E3, was that because of MS?

Everyone is acting like sales are the be all and end all of what constitutes profits for a video game.


You are an idiot. This doesn't apply to any publisher / developer and it certainly doesn't apply to EA.


Did you really just quote me then edit my post to try to make yourself look good? Cuz I never said that

This game goes to show what companies are willing to do in the shortgame. Make a few million dollars prior to release to lose a ton of money in the long run.

EA has confirmed this decision was a mistake.

Amount of money from Microsoft exclusive < overall profit if it wasnt.

Thanks to this muckup, exclusives on both sides are less likely to happen because profits from a GOOD multiplat will always supercede an exclusivity contract.

So thank you Titanfall, for showing corpetations the way and allowing EVERYONE to enjoy games while big studios still rake in cash


You mean a self-proclaimed industry insider named Pete Dodd, atFamousMortimer, has said that EA has confirmed this decision was a mistake.

Everyone is acting like sales are the be all and end all of what constitutes profits for a video game. Because the fact that Microsoft has pretty much funded any and all advertising pitching an exclusive Titanfall kind of superSedes a lot of the profits EA would have made multiplatting this game.

The only notable thing this dude has done so far was start a mini campaign on NeoGAF that helped start the movement regarding DRM. He hasn't really broken news, and frankly, I can't see anyone at a level in EA that would be privy to such information telling a glorified blogger that EA is regretting a decision that would quickly see advertising dollars cut. That would poison future dealings not only with Microsoft, but every other console manufacturer as well. Biting the hand that feeds is terrible for business.

Guarantee EA issues a statement in the following couple of weeks refuting this claim by Pete Dodd.


You're an idiot. Less sales equals more profit? Go to college


Less sales absolutely means more profit


Had to stop reading after that. I guess your internet degree supercedes my Stanford degree.

EA made a business decision, the wrong one of course. They admit it now because it's true & for that i actually commend them.

who on earth would use "profit" as a measure of success for a project like this? It's all about ROI.
