Didnt another company do the 360 port for respawn? Id be willing to bet the game just wasnt ready in time.


Yes, Bluepoint Games.

Can't believe gamers want consoles to be a one system party.

Hate for Apple is a pretty great test for IDing fadora-wearing neckbeards.

also, what's a "fadora"?

That is a list of all the companies that use the FoxConn facility. Bet you have something made there in your possession right now.


I mean I don't think anyone supports poor labor conditions but the way that narrative was framed was not accurate. Apple was just one of practically all the major consumer tech companies that shared in the burden to demand better and not just turn a blind eye.

Should be noted that they're the best porting studio in the business. Keeping this in mind I think the delays can only be attributed to one of two things:

1. The source code Respawn gave them is incredibly shoddy, making the port job overly complicated

2. MS put their foot down and forced them to delay the release in order to bolster sales of the Xbone version / Xbone bundle.

Both just as likely in my opinion.

or the non-troll reason:

3. The game was not running up to par on the 360 yet, and they were not going to meet their deadline.

Well yeah...Microsoft wants as many people as possible to believe that Titanfall is exclusive to the Xbone...when its not...they are treating consumers like idiots once again. The only reason that TItanfall on the Xbox 360 was delayed was to increase sales for the Xbone...because the gap between both systems is really quite small...and the player base would have certainly been larger for the 360, and the sales will be much larger for the Xbox 360 in the end.

There is no proof all of it is assumptions, assumptions that are in the realm of possibility though.
