Today, our friends at Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts have announced that Titanfalll for Xbox One Xbox 360 and PC will be released on March 11, 2013 in North America and March 13, 2014 in Europe.

Highlights of the press release below:

RESPAWN ENTERTAINMENT AND EA PREPARE FOR TITANFALL ON MARCH 11, 2014

Titanfall: Collector’s Edition Available for Pre-Order Now in Extremely Limited Quantities

VAN NUYS, Calif. – Oct. 22, 2013 Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: EA) announced today that Titanfall™, the debut game from acclaimed independent videogame developer Respawn Entertainment, will be landing on store shelves beginning March 11, 2014 exclusively for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, Xbox 360 games and entertainment system and PC. Already the winner of more than 80 coveted awards from critics around the world, Titanfall is winning over fans with its thrilling, dynamic first-person action gameplay featuring elite assault Pilots and agile, heavily-armored, 24-foot Titans. Crafted by one of the co-creators of Call of Duty and other key designers behind the Call of Duty franchise, Titanfall delivers a brand-new online experience that combines fluid, fast-paced multiplayer action with heroic, set-piece moments found in traditional campaign modes.

“Since we revealed the game in June we’ve been absolutely blown away by the reaction to Titanfall,” said Vince Zampella, a Co-Creator of Call of Duty and Co-Founder of Respawn Entertainment. “The feedback we’re getting from fans around the world is fueling our team as we head towards March and motivating us to deliver an experience that lives up to the hype.”

In addition to the standard edition of the game, the Titanfall: Collector’s Edition (SRP $249.99) will include an exclusive collectible 18” hand-crafted Atlas Titan statue with diorama and battery-powered LED lighting, a full-size art book featuring more than 190 pages of rare concept art, and an exclusive full-size schematic poster of the Atlas Titan. The Titanfall: Collector’s Edition is available for pre-order now at select retailers.

Set in the near future on a distant frontier torn apart by war, Titanfall drops players in the middle of a conflict between the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation (IMC) and the Militia. The action is rapid and varied – featuring parkour-style wall running, massive double jumps and the ability to hijack Titans. The freedom to shift back and forth between Pilot and Titan allows players to change tactics on the fly, attacking or escaping depending on the situation and extending the action vertically to new heights.

Titanfall and the Titanfall: Collector’s Edition will be available for Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC on March 11, 2014 in North America, and beginning March 13, 2014 in Europe.

  • Death Dealer

    Getting this on the Xbox One. Going to be awesome!

    • JustAnotherGamer

      SInce it’s most definitely a timed exclusive, and the xbone is running Titanfall at 720p, I’m waiting for the superior PS4 version.

      • Guest

        And nobody here cares. Goodbye!

      • Currentlyme

        Same for me, I’m waiting for the PS4 version. It’s going to be 1080p native.

    • Billy Spandex

      Anyone know how long the xbone exclusivity is going to be? 6 months or a year? I wonder how much money Microsoft paid for that exclusivity. Now with resolutiongate you kind of wish they had spent their money on making the xbone a better console.

      • Guest

        And nobody cares.

  • MrHawkeye1996

    I hope they DON’T bring this game out on the PS3/4. It’s gonna be a big hit for the Xbox one! i can feel it.

  • CA$H

    unfair the eu get it a whole 2 days later but still this game is day one material

    • evilfangs .

      I like it when America gets games a couple days earlier then us in the EU. I like to call them my beta testing monkeys, because by the time I get the game all the broken bugs are fixed.

  • EighteenCharacters

    I was kind of hoping for a beta announcement, but I’ll take a release date announcement. March 11 isn’t too long of a wait. Woohoo!

  • Death Dealer

    Major, could you confirm or deny if the PC version will be sold from the Store with Xbox for Windows on Windows 8? A few friends of mine want it on PC but would like to know if it interacts with any of the other versions.

  • William Montgomery

    The only thing I need to know is the price. That’s close enough to my birthday, but I don’t think I could justify $150. Getting Titanfall regardless. Looks amazing!

    • God Fodder

      The SRP is in the article. $249.99.

  • ungeheier

    Really wish there was a CE-Digital Version. Love the statue, but im not putting discs into my X1.

    • Death Dealer

      Same here, all digital from now on.

      • A. J.

        Digital for me too.

    • evilfangs .

      You aren’t going to be playing many games on your X1 are you?

      • ungeheier

        Huh? Everything that’s available on disc will be available to download off the marketplace.

        • evilfangs .

          Yes but today it took me 30 minutes to download a 537 mb size file. I have a 75mbps fibre optic line and it took me 30minutes because of Microsoft limit download speeds.

          So good luck downloading 20+ gig Blu-Ray sized games.

          • ungeheier

            Thanks!! =)

          • BlinkFandango

            What are you on about? I can download faster than that on slower Internet on the 360.

          • evilfangs .

            Well that’s clearly impossible unless you live next to a data center or in America. Because there is no way it would take me 30 minutes to download a 537mb file without the download being limited by Microsoft.

  • Volitar Prime

    I’ll get it for the PC. It will probably be cheaper and will run at 1080p.

    • MrRadiolips

      Same here! Now that plenty of more people will be moving to PC after “certain announcements” looks like this game might be one that will last as long as console series.

  • roozbeh, again

    COD killer in the making right there.

    But that is one steep price. But an awesome titan though/

    • EldritchWarlord

      You must have upset a gang of CoD-loving plebs.

      • roozbeh, again

        Right, COD. I seem to have upset the children.
        Sorry kids.

    • MrRadiolips

      I completely agree. COD is getting old and this is a great step up from the well over played COD. Lets just hope those nutty COD fans dont take over after they realize that Titanfall is such a better upgrade. :)

  • bat0nas

    Looking forward for PS4 version.. ;) Something tells me that we will get it sooner or later.

    • roozbeh, again

      How about a little wager?

      • WARLORD

        First I’d like to say I’m no fanboy…but lets face it , EA is the game publishers…and there all about the $$$.

        • roozbeh, again

          Do me a favor and read up on the EA partners program

          • Dylan

            It doesn’t exist anymore. Unfortunately.

            Anyway, EA’s involvement ruined Overstrike/Fuse. The change was done because of “focus groups”. All about the money, no passion. The irony is that it sold horribly, and I bet Overstrike would have been a hit.

            Hopefully the same doesn’t happen to “Sunset Overdrive”

          • roozbeh, again

            I thought MS were publishing that one with insomniac developing it.

          • Dylan

            Yep. Sunset Overdrive has a VERY similar art style and fun aspect to it that Overstrike had. Same type of CGI trailer, same hype.

            I sincerely hope it doesn’t go the same route as Overstrike.

          • WARLORD

            I looked it up and all I could find is EA Partners program is being shut down.

          • roozbeh, again

            Check a few examples of games on that program from Wikipedia

    • Guest

      And only paupers give a sh*t.

    • EighteenCharacters

      Why are you on an Xbox site?

      • bat0nas

        Because 1) I own both and 2) I’m not a fanboy of either.

  • Seth Parmer

    The Spartans, COG, and now Titans. LET’S GO! Xbox One for the win!

  • Guest

    LOLing hard at all the $0N¥ PauperStation N4Gtards hoping that today was a PoS4 announcement…

    • todd Wright

      at first i wanted this to be on ps4 so everyone could play it but look anywhere all the phonys saying OMG ITS TIMED its like stfu and then they rub it in our face that they have all the exclusives its like grow up

  • Jacob Mudkipz

    Another generic shooter…you can do better microsoft.

    • Guest

      You can try better at trolling harder. This game isn’t made by MS.

    • roozbeh, again

      Are you kidding, this is anything but generic.

    • WARLORD

      Try you can do better EA.

    • MrRadiolips

      How do you see this game as a generic shooter? Looks like a great evolution to me.

      • Dylan

        Brink did many of the same things. Looks good though.

        • MrRadiolips

          I do see some similarities but still dont see how it is a generic shooter. Just glad its not another COD.

  • Gazza!!!

    I get that xbone games are going to be more expensive but what about the extras in collector editions like this one. Are they made out of anything different than before? I’m just trying to think how they come up with the $250 price point because its ridiculously high.

    • roozbeh, again

      “In addition to the standard edition of the game, the Titanfall: Collector’s Edition (SRP $249.99) will include an exclusive collectible 18” hand-crafted Atlas Titan statue with diorama and battery-powered LED lighting, a full-size art book featuring more than 190 pages of rare concept art, and an exclusive full-size schematic poster of the Atlas Titan. The Titanfall: Collector’s Edition is available for pre-order now at select retailers.”

      From the article itself

      • Gazza!!!

        Thanks for that but I can read. Still haven’t answered my question. What makes this worth $250? I see nothing.

        • roozbeh, again

          Probably a mix of an expensive mold and EA’s greed

          • Gazza!!!

            EA’s greed. It all makes sense now.

        • EldritchWarlord

          A hand-crafted 18” statue with LEDs and a 190 page artbook. If you don’t really want those then it’s not worth the price, if you do then it is.
          Are you expecting someone to convince you to buy a Collector’s Edition?

        • dibils

          if its not worth $250 to you then here is a shocker… dont pay for it lol

          • Gazza!!!

            Thanks for your amazing contribution to my question.

    • Shane Battle

      it’s $400 for me if i want to buy it. :(

  • http://www.thechrisd.com/ TheChrisD

    Yay, more staggered release dates…

  • MrRadiolips

    This game looks like it will be great and hope a beta will be the next announcement.

  • Mitchell Hall

    I can’t wait to play this game. Personally cod has gotten stale to me. I’m also looking forward to battlefield 4 for my fps thirst. I’ve had my xbox 1 preordered since June, and now have ryse, cod ghosts, battlefield, forza, assasins creed 4, dead rising 3 preordered for day one… This is going to be one expensive November for me lol. Oh well.. gaming is a huge passion of mine and in my opinion very much worth the money.

  • WARLORD

    Looks good. I wish I was getting it for xbox one but sadly ill have to play it on the 360.

  • John T Greene

    for 249 im sold i love these collector editions

  • Dylan

    Since there is no single player, why is the game 60 dollars?

    Also, it employs many of the same concepts that Brink tried to pull off. Luckily, it looks much better than that crappy game.

    • MrRadiolips

      EA is the reason why it is so expensive.

      • Dylan

        I wonder if they’ll pull off another Dead Space 3 with those inflated micro-transactions.

        • MrRadiolips

          Most likely. Probably way more since they always like to push even harder at the beginning of ever gen.

        • EighteenCharacters

          Hey! Another thing for you to complain about! This thing is paying dividends before it’s even been released!

    • WARLORD

      No single player? That’s a no deal for me. Its dose look good but not only do you have to pay $60 for it, you also have to pay for xbox live just to play.

      • Dylan

        Yep. The game requires online and is multiplayer only.

        • EighteenCharacters

          Maybe you don’t know this, Dylan, but you are online right now. I know it’s scary, but it’s true.

          • Dylan

            Obviously that person thought this game had a campaign like every other full priced game.

            Most people like to play single player campaigns. That doesn’t mean they don’t play online.

            Imagine an original Medal of Honor game without a Normandy mission. Only multiplayer maps. It wouldn’t be the same.

      • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

        lets bo honest, cod, bf3, etc. have all very easy and fast single player campain that require little to no time to complete with flawed AI. Time taken to produce it result is lesser time building a real MP gameplay where you actually spend 95% of your time (most player). So seeing a game dedicated to MP is promising.

        • WARLORD

          I said That’s a no deal for “me”. I don’t buy games for just multiplayer. I like a good single player story.

          • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

            yah of course, i didn’t meant to discredit your taste or opinion about the need of solo gaming. Of course if this is the part that you like most, and i can see plenty of reason for that, it is a downer. this game is not for you for sure. But for multiplayer enthousiast, this is a must

      • fastharryDOTcom

        I work..no issues here…

        • WARLORD

          I work to…..only issues I really have is no single player story.
          I don’t buy games for just multiplayer…..

          • fastharryDOTcom

            fair enough…and I guess if you really like SP then its a valid point..I tend to judge a game by how much entertainment value it brings me..sp, MP, whatever…

          • WARLORD

            Same here for me there is not much entertainment value if there is only one game mod to play.

    • evilfangs .

      It has single player elements mixed into online. It has a story and everything.

      • Dylan

        Just like Brink. I didn’t say it didn’t have a story, it has no single-player.

        • Carnage Rules

          You’re looking for reasons NOT to buy it, not reasons to buy it. I don’t think anyone can help you with that

          • Dylan

            Actually no. I would get it if I could. But I doubt the 360 version would be any good, so I can’t.

            I’m questioning the price point.

          • beardyman3218

            Lets also question the price of movies then shall we? since it’s another viable form of entertainment, $20 for a movie that lasts 2 hours tops, a movie that can only be watched one way, you can’t change anything about it. Now $60 for a game that lasts as long as you want to play it for and is different depending on how you want to play it AND has a story you can enjoy with others I think that is VALUE for money.

          • EighteenCharacters

            Exactly right. Some people move from Point B to Point A, some people move from Point A to Point B, and some people don’t move at all, but will complain the entire time they’re standing still.

            See you online, Carnage. It’s going to be a blast to play. Sad that some will never know…

          • fastharryDOTcom

            except PS4 players,,,they only move upstairs to get more chips and their allowance from mom..

    • EighteenCharacters

      Some people will complain about anything. And from being a long-time visitor to this site, I can safely say that “some people” is you. How sad it must be to spend a lifetime complaining about such minor annoyances. Don’t want to move forward? Then don’t. See ya…

      • Dylan

        How is no single-player the step forward?
        How is that even relevant?

        All I’m doing is questioning the price point. I think the game looks cool, but if all they did was make multiplayer maps with story in the background, why is it 60?

    • beardyman3218

      ? That’s like saying why is a single player only game $60, its story comes in the form of multiplayer that’s something different to other games, so because a games different it should cost $60, in that case cod should be $40 because there is hardly a single player to accompany the multiplayer. This game has been getting fantastic reviews from people who have played it and the demand for it judging by most comments and reviews suggest finding people to play with is not going to be a problem, it’s meant for multiplayer and it delivers so $60 it is. Sorry for the rant but i felt i had to say something about this insane comment.

    • BlinkFandango

      From what I understand, with Call of Duty the IW guys that are now at Respawn saw that the majority of people never touched the single player campaign and just went straight to multiplayer. So the multiplayer on Titanfall integrates singleplayer story elements into the multiplayer and they also have MP modes without these elements that just focus on the objective, so the SP and MP experiences are still kind of there, but they are just integrated into MP.

      Also, as you mentioned, Brink didn’t do a good job of integrating story and had very standard gameplay, the gameplay of Titanfall looks like a lot of fun with the jetpacks and wall-running mixed up with the Titans. I personally think it will be worth the $60.

      • Dylan

        Hey look at that! A reasonable comment that doesn’t jump to conclusions about my intentions! Well done.

        Though I would say Call of Duty 4 was always critically commended for its groundbreaking campaign.

        I wonder how they’re going to treat progression in the story. Imagine if a level 3 guy joins a game with a level 36, is that level 3 going to see a much later part of the story? Or is it non-sequential story elements like Brink?

        • BlinkFandango

          Each map in the multiplayer has it’s own story attached to it. I am assuming they have some kind of order to it, but I’m not sure.

          As for separating higher levels and lower levels, if they don’t have separate lobbies for them (which they usually do) Titanfall also has bots to fill in the teams. The bots are there to make the game feel like a real war with lots of casualties, but they also help newbies have easy people to kill on the ground (although the points are worth less), while the higher level guys are more likely to fight among themselves in more remote parts of the maps, like on rooftops, or while jumping around the map.

          I haven’t played the game well to see if this works, but I’ve heard good things about it.

  • Kieran

    As long as the game has plenty of content, lots of maps abnd characters, and stuff. I’ll happily pay the full price. A campaign is fine, but after your done, very few play it over and over again. Worse case scenario with this game is the lack of content, and if there is a lack of content, Respawn and EA would be better off delaying the game, If it hasn’t least 15 maps or more on day one. Fans will not be happy paying for DLC if the game lacks content.

  • ElektroDragon

    These CEs are getting more and more over the top. Please publishers, I don’t want anything bigger or more expensive than than the original Bioshock CE with the all metal Big Daddy in it. And I never want to spend more than $80 on a CE. $250 is beyond insane. Please, nobody buy this. It just encourages the insanity.

    • BlinkFandango

      Yeah, I Titanfall looks awesome, but for $250 I’m going to pass.

    • http://thenewtech.tv/ James Denham

      Perhaps you have forgotten about the Saints Row million dollar special edition :D

  • Dylan

    Isn’t it $50 on PC?

    • MrRadiolips

      No its $60 but still free to play.

  • http://fyfps.tumblr.com/ Giorgio Tsoukolas

    $249.99? What is Respawn thinking?

    • Gazza!!!

      You have no business being here, get back to making up conspiracy theories :p

  • Master Troll

    Can’t wait to own some noobs on titanfall!!

    • moebiouz

      Can’t you just have fun playing without being so confrontational or aggressive.

      • Master Troll

        Its a competitive fps shooter…and since when is owning noobs so aggressive you obviously exaggerated my comment nice try though

        • moebiouz

          a little respect for people and a more proper use of grammar wouldn’t go astray also.

  • Maxcer Maxcer

    can’t wait for Nov 2014. timed exclusivity runs out on this game.

    • roozbeh, again

      Good luck with that.

  • Shane Battle

    NO THANKS!!!! not with a $400 price tag.

    • MrRadiolips

      Im not trying be a troll but how would it come to $400? Collectors addition is $250

      • Shane Battle

        not in Australia!!!!!!!!

        • MrRadiolips

          Ok i see! Dollar sign confused me. In that case yeah $400 is insane. I would wait until price drops by a lot.

  • Shane Battle

    i doubt it will be as good on 360, i think the 360 version is done by another company + it don’t have the power of the One.

  • MrRadiolips

    I think im just going to buy game disk and wait for statue to go amazon. Not really interested in the other stuff.

  • beardyman3218

    You mean respawn, EA didn’t make the game. Anyway the game looks great.

  • HGamer

    It doesn’t seem like X1 will be available in my region by March. As this game is using Azure Cloud as dedicated servers, if I buy an import console and game and then play online, what servers will I be connected to? Those located in US? or the Azure datacenter nearest to my region?

    • Death Dealer

      What country do you live in? AFAIK, every country with at least a CDN node will be able support Xbox Live for the Xbox One next year and there are a couple of new datacenters and nodes planned for this year as well.

      • HGamer

        My region has an existing Azure datacenter. I just don’t know if X1 is not officially released in my region yet, will X1 use the datacenter in my region.

        • Death Dealer

          Yes.

  • EldritchWarlord

    The new Halo game planned for release next year is not actually Halo 5. However I can pretty much guarantee that it will be released in September, October, or November.
    I would like to disagree with you about Infinity Ward, CoD 1-4 were excellent games. I am also optimistic that now that Infinity Ward’s founders have now founded Respawn Entertainment and are not bound to the CoD franchise they can explore fresh ideas and make excellent games again.

    • Dylan

      COD 3 was awful and was done by Treyarch.

      Otherwise, I totally agree.

  • WARLORD

    I can’t believe its not butter.

    • bill

      Yes fabio!

      • WARLORD

        lol someone with a sense of humor :)

  • Brady Nickell

    We pay $500 plus for the xbox one and we can’t get games at 1080p :-( I’m not understanding this

    • Dylan

      All games on 360 are in upscaled 1080. I didn’t know the Xbox One’s aren’t. What’s the reason?

      • Brady Nickell

        Only thing I can think of is 60fps? Ryse isn’t 1080p either I’m still getting the games!!!

      • HGamer

        It’s just a rumor in recent few days.

        X1 can upscale to 1080p for sure. The rumor just said X1 can’t support native 1080p, which is in fact not true, as Forza5 is native 1080p. M$ also said X1 does support native 1080p.

        But people (intentionally?) doesn’t believe in M$. So all M$ said are lies :)

    • JustAnotherGamer

      They should have called the xbone the xbone 720p.

      • Billy Spandex

        Xbone 720p, that’s clever I’m going to use it JAG.

        • Guest

          Just like we all call it the $0N¥ PauperStation 4. Good one!

    • WARLORD

      The game res is up to the developers. The xbox one is made to support 1080p, but whether or not the game is 1080p is on the developers. It’s the same for the ps4…..

    • DarkMaturus

      Your sources are bad, period.

  • Maxcer Maxcer

    or just get it on PC/360

    im not spending $500 on the Xbox720P

  • Major FoxHoundR – what the fox

    Xbox one is goingto be the best

  • moebiouz

    Really wish people would stop referring to it as ‘xbone’

    • Currentlyme

      It’s the Xbone. Deal with it!

    • Billy Spandex

      Because we’re going to be xboned behind a paywall.

      • moebiouz

        you mean you have to pay for something that someone else has worked hard on and should rightly be remunerated for their efforts? Outrageous.
        Seriously though – the world does not owe you a living.

    • Volitar Prime

      Whomever it was at MS that came up with the name Xbox One should have anticipated this. Now they are stuck with a terrible name which has an even more terrible abbreviation that will continue to be used for the life of the console (and beyond).

    • Guest

      People calling it that will never be taken seriously. Not by real gamers and definitely NOT by MS on here. Paupers will never get that.

      • WARLORD

        and saying Paupers is no different….

          LMAO!!! THANK YOU!!! So glad somebody said something about that guy saying that word all the time. Ive been laughing hysterically ever since ive read that word on here. Its funny that they think it makes them “cool”. Such a feminine word. Imagine a man wearing a pink polo shirt with a purple scarf on his neck…. and a monocle over his left eye. Thats the type.

      • MrRadiolips

        How many systems do you play on?

        Microsoft tweeted a picture of a dog bone with the words xbone on it though… People need to learn to lighten up.

        • Death Dealer

          I prefer the skull and crossbones one…;)

          • PCxMustRdxRcE

            I havent seen it lol Link?

          • PCxMustRdxRcE

            Ok I’ll check it out thanks.

    • Digiadam

      Agreed.

  • Currentlyme

    The inevitable PS4 version is going to be 1080p native (unless Microsoft tries to gimp it for the sake of parity) so might as well wait for the superior console version. Why am I not getting it on PC? I don’t like to play on PC. Never liked the keyboard and mouse.

    • DarkMaturus

      Enjoy your game Christmas 2015 or Spring 2016. What don’t you get about “exclusive?” I wanna play Infamous, but I’m not demanding it is a timed exclusive lol

  • Billy Spandex

    Mass effect? Dead Rising? All those exclusives that made their way to PS3. Titanfall is just a matter of time, and to boot the best version will be on PS4.

    The funny thing is timed-exclusives makes no difference. Its money wasted from Microsoft.

    • Michael Burden

      Dead Rising (the first one) never did make it to the PS3 dude. There was a Wii port, but no PS3 version until the sequel.

  • Timothy Monica

    One of the only reasons to get the XBONE! lol Just wish it was a launch title so I would have something to play. Can’t wait for good games to actually come out for this machine!

    • PCxMustRdxRcE

      Geeze out of Killer Instinct, Ryse, Dead Rising, Forza, Project Spark and more you couldnt find something fun to play? Not even multiplats o_O?

      • Death Dealer

        Dead Rising 3 will be mine!

  • SteveFNL

    Major, the first line of that posting reads “Titanfalll for Xbox One Xbox 360 and PC will be released on March 11, 2013 in North America and March 13, 2014 in Europe”.
    There’s a typo for North America, should be 2014, not 2013, unless I’ve missed some really big news earl on this year?!!

  • Digiadam

    Larry you may want to correct the spelling of this article. “March 11, 2013 in North America” was LAST spring and you spelled Titanfall as Titanfalll.

    You were in a rush I guess. LOL!!!!!

    system software update version 1.50 for PS4, which will launch
    simultaneously with the system’s official North American launch on
    November 15th, 2013. By updating to system software version 1.50, you’ll
    be able to experience a variety of new features in addition to the
    basic functions of PS4.

    The system software update 1.50 is approximately 300 MB, and will include the following features:

    Remote Play

    Users will be able to access PS4 titles displayed on their living room
    TVs and play them on a PS Vita system over Wi-Fi networks by using PS4
    Link (Depending on network environment or titles, remote play
    performance may vary outside of the home). We anticipate that most PS4
    titles will be playable on the PS Vita system through Remote Play. The
    latest PS Vita system software version, to be released soon, will be
    required to use PS4 Link.

    Second Screen

    Users can use the PS4 Link application for the PS Vita system, and
    PlayStation App for iPhone, iPad, and Android-based smartphones and
    tablets, to use these devices as second screens in supported titles.
    PlayStation App has the ability to enable users to interact with games
    with their mobiles devices. For example on The Playroom, a title
    pre-installed in all PS4 systems that requires PlayStation Camera, users
    can draw pictures on their mobile device screens and flick them towards
    the TV. The images then appear as a 3D object within the game.

    Record, take screenshots, and upload gameplay effortlessly

    The PS4 system provides dedicated, “always on” video encoding systems
    that enables seamless uploading of gameplay. Users can share their epic
    triumphs by simply hitting the Share button on DualShock 4, take
    screenshots or scan through the last 15 minutes of gameplay, tag it and
    return to the game—the video uploads as the user plays. At the PS4
    system’s launch in North America, users will be able to share their
    images and videos with friends on Facebook and screenshots with
    followers on Twitter, though users will need to sign up for individual
    accounts to use Facebook and Twitter.

    Broadcast and spectate gameplay

    The PS4 system also enhances social spectating by enabling users to
    broadcast their gameplay in real-time to game fans around the globe,
    using Ustream and Twitch live internet streaming services (users will
    need to sign up for individual accounts to use Ustream and Twitch).
    There are two ways for users to view live broadcasts. First, the Live
    from PlayStation application on PS4 aggregates streams from all
    PlayStation users. Second, users can spectate friends’ PS4 gameplay from
    PCs, and applications such as Ustream, Twitch, and browsers, which are
    installed on their mobile devices. These applications can be easily
    started up via PlayStation App, and users can also use these
    applications to post comments to gameplay broadcasts. Furthermore, users
    with PlayStation Camera can stream camera images and microphone sounds
    along with their live gameplay broadcast.

    Play as you download

    This feature enables users to play supported digital titles as they are
    being downloaded. The time it takes to begin playing will vary depending
    on game data size and network environments, and not all titles will
    support this feature When a game is purchased, users can start playing
    after PS4 downloads a portion of the data, while the rest of the game is
    downloaded in the background during actual gameplay. Games may be
    downloaded in stand-by mode.

    Multi log-in

    A maximum of four users can log-in to a single PS4 system
    simultaneously. These players can use their own save data to play games,
    and also earn trophies on their own Sony Entertainment Network accounts
    even when playing a multiplayer game together on a single PS4 system.

    Party (Voice chat)

    By using the Mono Headset bundled with the PS4 system, users will be
    able to chat with up to eight friends enjoying different applications or
    games. Furthermore, users can use Party to chat between PS4 and PS Vita
    systems.

    Face recognition and voice commands

    Users with PlayStation Camera will be able to register their facial
    image onto their PS4 system, and login to their system using facial
    recognition instead of DualShock 4. Furthermore, users can use either
    the microphone of the Mono Head set connected to DualShock 4, or
    PlayStation Camera to navigate through the PS4 home screen (PlayStation
    Dynamic Menu) with voice commands to start up games and shutdown the
    system, among other features; please refer to PS4’s online manual for
    recognizable voice commands.

    Background music player

    Users can enjoy gameplay while listening to music in the background with
    Music Unlimited, a cloud-based digital music service. Users can also
    voice chat with friends while listening to music. Learn more about Music
    Unlimited here.

    Online Multiplayer

    PlayStation Plus members will be able to play PS4 titles online with
    other players via the network. PS Plus makes it easy for members to join
    available online multiplayer matches in a variety of ways, including
    the ability to easily join a game from a live stream broadcast or Party
    voice chats.

    Blu-ray Disc and DVD player

    Users can enjoy not only gaming on their PS4 system, but also Blu-ray
    and DVD video contents. When using for the first time, users must
    connect to the internet to activate this feature.

      OMG and the point of posting that was???

      • Guest

        It’s probably for the laughs that the PoS4 needs an update to be able to do anything, even play Blu-Ray. So much for the offline console champion the PoS4 was supposed to be. Can’t wait for the hypocrisy going on at N4G and NeoGAF now.

        • WARLORD

          My be… but if that was the intention they should know we will need a update on day one of the xbox one as well. When they did the 180 a few months back, They said on day one we would have to download a patch/update so we could use the xbox one offline and with out DRM. But I take it was your intention to troll…. about the ps4, you fanboys just need to chill.

  • gtx

    since EA offers upgrade $10 from BF4 XBOX360 to ONE via digital xbox live..

    does this game TITAN FALL have similar offer right?
