For the Xbox One, the news about exclusives and titles getting updates for the console are important for users. Users are deciding which console they want to purchase, and on Wednesday, news surrounding two of the biggest titles on the console came out to please and anger some users.
The updates on Wednesday circled around Titanfall and Call of Duty: Ghosts. These two big titles are expected to be mammoth sellers on the Microsoft’s Xbox One, and the news about these titles have made some users happy, some angry, but all a little more informed for the November release.
Titan Fall: Xbox Exclusive
One of the biggest titles announced during the E3 show was Titanfall. The game is a huge multiplayer shooter and is a futuristic first person shooter that battles bots and humans against each other. The game on Wednesday was announced an Xbox 360 and Xbox One exclusive by Respawn studio’s head Vince Zampella.
By making this title exclusive to Microsoft, Microsoft can be sure to get all these gamers into the Xbox One ecosystem and buying the Xbox One unit. The title is sure to be a huge seller and is aimed to be a instant seller for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. The game also has a $250 collectors edition coming out for the Xbox One in March 2014.
Call Of Duty Ghosts: 720p on Xbox One
The disappointing news on the Xbox One front was that the upcoming Call of Duty: Ghosts game will be 1090p on the PS4 but an upscaled 720p for Xbox One users. This is sure to be a billion dollar seller for Infinity Ward who makes the Call of Duty franchise, and by making an upscaled version for Xbox One they might upset some dedicated COD fans.
The news came from Mark Rubin, the executive producer of the franchise, and stated that both versions of the game will rub at 60FPS, but the resolution will be different. Xbox One users will still find this game amazing to play and use via multiplayer modes, but the 1080p versus upscaled 720p differences could make a difference in which console they want.
I love these types of games, but Titanfall will be huge on the Xbox One. By not having the 1080p on the Xbox One though, COD: Ghosts will unfortunately edge towards PS4’s way in the upcoming months in my opinion.
