Harrison believes Titanfall will be a killer app for the Xbox One
Microsoft's Phil Harrison has highlighted Respawn's Titanfall as a title that will give gamers to buy an Xbox One.
Harrison stressed that coming out of E3 Xbox One titles had more nominations for 'game of show' than their nearest competitors adding that Titanfall in particular would be a system-seller.
“The most important thing is the games,” Harrison emphasised. “And coming out of E3, we had almost twice as many ‘game of the show’ nominations than our nearest competitor. The industry, journalists and the media are voting our games as the strongest. We have an exclusive relationship with EA and Respawn on Titanfall, which is the most heralded game in E3 history.”
He went on, “I had a chance to get in front of Titanfall at Gamescom, and there is a really incredible thing that Respawn has done. The verticality and change in level design from six-foot tall to 40-foot tall is inspired, it is a really magical video game moment. It’s something new, impactful and I’ve never seen before.”
“I am very confident that this is going to be a big, big system seller. Every generation sees a new IP explode in a powerful way, and right now I would say Titanfall has a big chance,” the MS VP added.
Having played Titanfall at the Eurogamer Expo this year I'd agree that it has the potential to be a killer app for the Xbox One. That said it's also a compelling reason to upgrade your gaming PC.
