Microsoft: Titanfall 'will play great on Xbox 360'
Gamers not yet ready to jump into the future of gaming, but still interested in Titanfall can rest easy knowing the game "will play great" on Xbox 360. Of course, this is coming from Xbox Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer Yusuf Mehdi, and not an actual press event where the game was actually shown for the console.
At last night's Titanfall launch celebration for Xbox One and PC, Mehdi took some time to assure gamers that the Xbox 360 version, developed by Bluepoint Games, will be a "first-class experience" despite the system's dated technology. Given the 70-million-or-so Xbox 360 owners out there, I'd hope it's a good experience.
"I think we struck the right balance — it was Respawn, really, and the developer who struck the balance — which is, it will play great on Xbox 360," Mehdi told Polygon. "Believe me, we are thrilled about it. Xbox 360 is in, obviously, all the markets including the top 13 with Xbox One; we're in 48-plus markets for [Xbox 360]. For many markets, that will be the game. So, we've worked together to have that be a first-class experience."
"At the same time, on Xbox One you can get some of those extra features that set it apart, and there will be people who want to do that, and there will be enough encouragement to go — but it will be a great experience on Xbox 360," Mehdi added.
Titanfall was supposed to release on all three platforms at once, but the Xbox 360 version was delayed last month until March 25.
