Titanfall: Developer Interview Shows Possible PS3/PS4 Dev-kit?

Sneaky.

Titanfall_PS4_PS3

Ever since rumours about its exclusivity towards Microsoft’s next generation Xbox One console to its reveal at E3 2013 and the confirmation that it would only be arriving for Xbox and PC, many have wondered if Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall would ever come to PlayStation consoles. The powers that be at Respawn have neither confirmed nor denied whether it will – just that fans will have to wait till it appears on either PS3 or PS4 any time soon.

However, a recent screenshot from a developer feature for Respawn and Titanfall showcases something intriguing: A blurred out dev kit in the corner, standing vertically, but with a Dualshock 3 controller close to the monitor. As some have pointed out, this is most likely a PS3 dev kit since PS4 dev kits tend to lay horizontal. Of course, PS3 dev kits can also lay vertical so this argument doesn’t really help.

Sure the video is two months old, but it fits in with Respawn telling PlayStation fans to wait for a PS3/PS4 version of Titanfall. It could be that it’s already in development, but will be timed exclusive for Xbox One/Xbox 360 first. Seems plausible? Let us know in the comments below.

    Ps4 is obvious, only XU fanboy’s believe that this game will be xu EXCLUSIVE.

    • spideynut71

      XU ?

      And yes, it’s highly unlikely that EA will publish a game that remains exclusive. But, just like with COD on the 360, the early support from MS on the franchise, plus the marketing for their platforms (including Windows), means Titanfall will always be associated with the XBOX/MS brand. PS3/PS4 will be a port…and cold leftovers.

    • Maverick Saturn

      I don’t think that matters, the point is that MS won’t have a strong grip on it anymore because it’ll be available on the competition’s console. That and the fact that PS4 best exclusives are made in house so they remain exclusives and will never be seen on X1. If Titanfall goes PS4, that’ll just be less need to own it. Only Ryse, Forza and Halo are left to brag about.

    • spideynut71

      “Available on” isn’t even close to the same as “associated with”, when it comes to marketing. Just like with GTA and MGS with the Playstation brand, just because it’s not “exclusive”, doesn’t mean that version won’t have a marketing/branding advantage. If you disagree, then you’re a hypocrite.

    • Maverick Saturn

      ‘Associated with’ is irrelevant. Titanfall isn’t the be all and end all of gaming. Its just 1 popular ‘looking’ game, no one has played it yet to determine if it is as good as it appears. People tend to lean towards the console with better or more games period, it doesn’t matter if there is 1 good game or several. Halo was enough to hold Xbox gamers because on it’s own it was amazing.

      Unfortunately, I’m of the feeling that Halo can’t keep saving the Xbox, Titanfall is meant to be that successor along with Ryse, but if Titanfall comes to PS4 and Sony markets the hell out of it (because they can, who can tell them not to), PLUS they end up gaining lots of new exclusives, what does X1 have left besides Halo?

    • spideynut71

      Sony doesn’t even market their exclusive 1st party games…so no.

    • Maverick Saturn

      Yes they do, they just don’t have the budget that Microsoft has to push it in our face at every point in our life. I’ve seen lots of adverts for PS3 exclusives and events.

      By the time Titanfall makes its way to PS4, it’ll probably be overshadowed by the many other games Sony has up its sleeves, especially if Uncharted 4 is one of those said titles.

    • zainfazal3000

      Crimson Dragon
      Forza 5

      Fable Legends
      Ryse Son Of Roma
      Gears of War
      Crackdown etc.

      Microsoft DOES have exclusive franchises they may be smaller franchises and games that don’t create a lot buzz and aren’t that popular but they are there and do appeal to lots of gamers.

    • Maverick Saturn

      Crimson Dragon – Hardly a make or break title, most can live without it.

      Forza – Would be the MUST HAVE title if it wasn’t for Gran Turismo, granted, Forza is better than GT, I won’t argue that, but GT is more popular, known and played worldwide and sells more that all of Forzas combined.

      Fable – False promises, has yet to reach the potential of a Dragon Age, Skyrim or Zelda, so again, not a make or break title.

      Ryse – Has potential to be amazing, but it’s early days, so we don’t really know.

      Gears – Popular, but I don’t really see where it can go from here without dragging it’s feet and appearing a little desperate to be milked into oblivion.

      Crackdown – My answer to that is inFamous.

      So yes, there are a great deal of other franchises, but the question is, without Halo, Forza, Titanfall and maybe Ryse (dunno yet, hasn’t been bragged about as much as Titanfall) what else is there to convince a PS4 going gamer to Xbox One, especially if Dead Rising 3 or DR4 end up on PS4, Titanfall ends up on PS4 etc. What you really have left is just Ryse and Halo Vs Uncharted and God of War….and Killzone….and the other AAA exclusives Sony is apparently working on.

    • spideynut71

      Your comment about Gears could be applied to MGS, Killzone, God of War….just about any franchise that already has 3-4 games in the series. Obviously it applies more to COD and Dynasty Warriors. EPIC just got lazy with Gears, but I could see a spin-off FPS, with a Rainbow Six Vegas 3rd person cover system working really well. It would make the chainsaw battles pretty crazy too.

    • Maverick Saturn

      Very true, but I think the answer is in sales and popularity, because I think it would be better to group Gears of War with God of War as both their last spin offs sucked and their main plots have ended. Much of the reason why I think both developers, Santa Monica and Epic will be abandoning the franchises for at least a while.

      Santa Monica said it’s working on something bigger than GoW and new, so expect a new competing game to join the market. Also The Order which looked meh initially is starting look exciting. If what I’ve seen so far is anything like what I want it to play like, expect even Ryse to have a big challenger for attention.

    • Jake Wake

      I wonder how everyone gonna feel about this Sunset Overdrive if people appear to like it? Do PS fans only care about any exclusive only if its good? or just any exclusive title that appears at all on Xbox?

  • http://www.thesteampunkraygun.com/ Allen Gore

    You don’t have to be a fanboy to believe it’s Exclusive…IT IS EXCLUSIVE. With no announcement for PS4. You have to be a fanboy to believe something will come out for a system just by hoping…

    • cell989

      you have to be an xbot to believe its staying Xbone exclusive, you do know its published by EA, the company that loves selling as many games as possible, its coming to PS platforms 6 months to a year later.

    • bigevilworldwide

      They also said something during E3 about bringing titanfall to PS4 to Rev3Games in an interview but strangely the video seemed to disappear less than 24hrs after they posted it

    • mathMaticks

      You have to be an xbox fanboy to believe it’s going to stay EXCLUSIVE,. Esp. with Ps4 killing the xbone, in sales,.. If ps4 to xbone is 3:1, best believe that it will show up a lot sooner, than later,.. FACT.

    • Maverick Saturn

      It won’t remain that way, there is too much demand for it over on the PS side and it’s already on PC. It will be timed, but it will come to PS4, mark my words.

  • Counterproductive

    That is definitely a PS4 controller in the foreground. You can see the different grip shape and concave L2/R2 buttons. Fanboy or not, Respawn doesn’t have anything else in the pipeline other than Titanfall. The conclusion is obvious

    • ruefrak

      I was actually wondering why the article didn’t point out the obvious Dualshock 4 sitting on the book in the foreground. This game is coming to PS3/4 because it just makes financial sense. Microsoft will probably get a timed exclusive, but the PS4 is going to have too big a market share for EA and Respawn to ignore.
      This is the danger that Microsoft is going to face with a number of their “exclusives.” While games like Infamous Second Son and Killzone will be available only on the PS4, most of the XBO exclusives will also be available on PC, or eventually will be ported to the PS4.
      *update: nevermind. It’s an xbox controller

    • Lookwithyoureyes

      that’s an xbox one controller in the foreground genius…… notice trigger guards?

    • Jordan Johnson

      ya its an xbox controller, the triggers are not aligned. BUT I think it’s obvious that it’s coming to PS4.

    • christrules0041

      No. The controller in front of it has the dpad on the bottom left and the thumbstick on the top left. The dualshock 4 has the same dpad top left and thumbsticks bottom left.

      It’s really easy to tell by the positioning of the left thumbstick.

    • Maverick Saturn

      That’s an Xbox controller, the one in the back is a PS controller

    • spideynut71

      Wow…both you AND ‘ruefrak’ either need glasses, or have no clue about the meaning of “foreground”. So sad…

    • ruefrak

      I retract my comment. That is an xbox controller. The handle looked like a ps4.

    • PauperStation FTL

      I’m LOLing hard at all the blind paupers that upvoted you.

    • Counterproductive

      I’m LOLing hard at your pointless username. Who are you, Charles Dickens? I don’t understand how that became a thing, considering the system was ridiculously expensive at launch, which would indicate *more* wealth on the part of the owner rather than less. And what does a person’s financial status have to do with games anyhow? Its like those PC Elitist people who need to derive validation from some unwavering devotion to the platform they own. It may as well be persecution for your religious devotion, it’s so pointless and arbitrary.

      TLDR: Troll harder, boy.

  • Escopablobar

    I think there is a high probability this game will find its way to Sony consoles. This is not a MSFT published IP nor has EA/Respawn ever spoken to the details surrounding its exclusivity. If history can be trusted I see this playing out much like Mass Effect or Bioshock. EA will do whatever it takes to address as large a market as possible.

  • DEO エリヤデボンオットリ

    Lets see here Playstation has Mass Effect,Ninja Gaiden,Dead or Alive,Mincraft,Bioshock,GTA4 DLC,lol COD DLC now will soon obtain TitanFall wow SCE is like don’t mind if i do.Then Xbox owners wonder why we can never see genuine exclusives aside from the Halo series. Timed Exclusives is just a nuisense really, the xbox division need to place that money elsewhere that it benefit the so called only on xbox brand.

    • Jason Mounce

      Don’t forget Eternal Sonata didn’t stay on 360 and Dead Rising 2 went on PS3 as well. Wouldn’t shock me if Dead Rising 3 was only temporary or that Dead Rising 4 would go PS4 and X1.

      The amount of timed exclusives that the 360 lost were pretty hilarious because I remember each time it happened, the amount of denial you could see, and outrage in the 360 fanbase was massive whilst it was a very popular trend for them to laugh and try to ridicule the PS3 fanbase by stating that MGS4 would inevitably in return go to 360…..and it never did. Likewise, they’re getting the MGS series mutually and that to me is fine because EVERYONE should enjoy that series, one of my favorite. The problem only was that Xbox originally got MGS2 and it didn’t even really sell because the demographic were more obnoxiously hardcore for Shooters and were the impatient and too-young to grasp the joys of stealth or playing games Slow and carefully. Sold great on PS2 though of course.

    • Jason Mounce

      And Castle Crashers, Limbo, Braid, Oblivion, Lost Planet, Overlord, Enchanted Arms, Star Ocean: The Last Hope….

    • Heavenly_King

      M$ is the publisher in DR3, so that is very difficult to happen, but still possible, like NG2 and ME1.

    • Maverick Saturn

      DR4? Which will no doubt be better than DR3. So I guess it won’t matter much. It would be more of a loss if MS owned the entire IP

    • Jason Mounce

      Yea, was going to say, “Just like ME1?” xD

      That and, it’s Capcom, Capcom loves money and has been losing profit and are trying to keep themselves floating. It would be extremely Un-Capcom like as a profit-prioritizing company to NOT seek multiplatform. The only way they’d keep it a permanent exclusive is likely if M$ paid them double the amount that it would cost to make the game like how M$ paid Rockstar $50 Million for timed GTAV DLC, They had essentially paid off the entirety of how much it cost Rockstar to make GTA4 just for exclusive DLC rights.

      So, I’d be more leaned to believe nothing is ever a permanent exclusive to Microsoft unless 2 years pass and it’s still not on other consoles.

    • bigevilworldwide

      MS also published Ninja Gaiden 2 and It became Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2….So PS4 will most likely being Capcom just have to wait for Dead Rising 3: Off the Record or whatever subtitle they give it on PS4…..The dumbest thing MS ever did was let EA buy Bioware they could have kept DA and ME exclusive IF they didn’t just rape Bioware into Kinect developers like Rare

    • Jack Slater

      Microsoft spent 1 billion on:
      -buying journalists
      - buying developers so they say the xbox360/one is more powerful than the ps3/4
      - paying for major websites so they write wonderful articles
      - buying timed exclusive dlcs
      - etc etc

      When they should rather use that billion, build 9 studios with 100 million $ each, hire 100 -150 guys for each studio, make 9 different AAA IPs, and with the last 100 millions, they would hire thousands of indie developers, all in one place/office, and these 1000 guys would make 50-100 new games.
      This is how a billion $ should be invested.
      But no, it’s so much easier to just pay for some new cod maps…

    • Exposed

      Microsoft has spent billions on a sever infrastructure that Sony simply cannot match. Want an example of the cost of a server farm? Iowa 700 million, Virginia 800 million. These are just the two latest examples of the many server farms that Microsoft is going to utilize for XBox One. Respawn has talked about Microsoft’s server infrastructure saying Titanfall wouldn’t be possible without an infrastructure like Microsoft’s in place. They don’t have to worry about Japan, Australia, America, Canada, etc etc…Microsoft has a server infrastructure in place that spans the globe. Sony doesn’t want to invest that much money and simply cannot.

    • Mark

      Did they used those servers in XBOX360 online matches?

    • Solid Snake

      yeah let Microsoft wast all that money, i’d rather sony invest there money making better exclusives like they always do rather than wasting it on pointless servers. psn is just fine, i play on both xbox live and psn , and there exactly the same.

      even if this cloud gimmick kicks of, sony could easily implement it on the ps4, especially now that their charging for psn.

    • Jason Mounce

      You sound like a Sheep.

      A sheep who seems to believe every little hype and delusion that Microsoft feeds you. I pity you, if this personality of yours isn’t an act, it really is sad how brainwashed you sound, truly.

    • Guest

      Sorry but I think they need like 3 servers for Japan :P Just kidding, I know that’s why they started on XBone but don’t be naive enough to think that it’s not possible on Playstation.

      Yep, so funny. Paupers working themselves up over a 3 year old picture. GFY $0ny paupers!

  • Exposed

    Titanfall is not going to the Sony platform. Titanfall is designed to work specifically with the Microsoft server infrastructure. Microsoft has invested billions of dollars into a server infrastructure that spans the globe. Not only can developers easily utilize the cloud but dedicated servers can be utilized for games. This is one reason why if you care about online gaming/competitive gaming community and multiplayer experience then XBox One right now seems to the go to choice.

    If Sony wants to compete with Microsoft in online gaming then they need to invest in a similar infrastructure. They can’t just wave a magic wand and in the blink of an eye build up an infrastructure like Microsoft has. Want an example of the cost of a server farm? In Iowa recently, Microsoft spent 700 million dollars to acquire additional servers. This is just one example of many that will be cropping up around the globe, in addition to what they already have. Sony does not have a global presence of servers around the world. They can’t spin up servers like Microsoft and either give them for free to developers or for a tiny cost. Respawn is on record talking about how it doesn’t matter if its Japan, Australia, Europe, America, etc…Microsoft’s infrastructure has allowed them to do things that no one else could have.

    Wake up people. Stop being stupid. When Sony invests billions of dollars into a server infrastructure then we can expect games like Titanfall and others that are heavily reliant on the cloud in addition to dedicated servers for most games to be available. Sony has provided dedicated servers for a few first party games, but they are paying full price foe it and they do not have the ability to offer them to third parties for free or on the cheap because the infrastructure isn’t theirs. They are paying someone like Amazon (for example) to use their servers.

    • bigevilworldwide

      IF your BS Xbot vomit was even remotely true than how come it’s on PC and 360 also…Neither have da cloud…..You Xbots have some huge disappointment coming over da cloud…..Infinity Ward has stated in an interview during E3 with Rev3Games that they are looking to bring it to PS4 after a certain period of time

    • Exposed

      To address multiple points…the server infrastructure is Microsoft, not strictly XBox One. Titanfall for 360 is being worked on by a different development team than the “next-gen” version. Devs said Titanfall would not have all the nuances that the XBox One version has but also confirmed that it can utilize the cloud/server infrastructure provided by Microsoft. So its not like the PC version cannot. Do you think Microsoft would let Respawn utilize their servers for a PS4 version? No they won’t. And unless Sony begins to crop up a server infrastructure that spans the globe since Titanfall will likely be popular in all parts of the world, its not going to happen. Maybe by Titanfall 2, if a sequel is warranted, Sony might be in position to support it.

      Gaikai is designed to stream games. Its not designed to be a massive server infrastructure to provide developers access to the cloud or to help aid in dedicated servers for multiplayer. Sony may try to utilize Openstack, but this is different than having a massive server infrastructure in place. Microsoft owns the massive infrastructure. They can provide servers to developers/publishers for free or for a very low cost, depending on what their agenda is. Sony cannot do this. They can rent servers from an outside source but unless they want to lose a lot of money, they have to charge the typical rates. Microsoft can do as they please because they own their infrastructure. Sony will have to invest billions of more dollars into this if they want to match Microsoft as Microsoft has been doing it for years and years through other aspects of their business.

    • Just a Passer by

      While it is true that Sony’s network is a pile of crap, you’re completely wrong about “The Power of Cloud” that Microsoft keeps trying to sell. Look online for what some Devs have to say about the power of cloud that aren’t trying to sell you an online game.

    • Jibreel Muhammad

      Sony will be using Openstack for their cloud services. Respawn will be able to do anything they can do on the x1 on the PS4 regarding the cloud: http://www.psu.com/forums/showthread.php/316556-How-OpenStack-will-power-Sony’s-Online-Games-for-PlayStation-4

    • Earnest Abiyah Hobley

      “I personally talked to both Microsoft and Sony and explained that we need to find a way to have potentially hundreds-of-thousands of dedicated servers at a price point that you can’t get right now. Microsoft realized that player-hosted servers are actually holding back online gaming and that this is something that they could help solve, and ran full-speed with this idea.

      The Xbox group came back to us with a way for us to run all of these Titanfall dedicated servers and that lets us push games with more server CPU and higher bandwidth, which lets us have a bigger world, more physics, lots of AI, and potentially a lot more than that!” Well they didn’t tell respawn that.

    • Sang2

      Explain then how PC players can play the game? If I remeber correctly Titanfall is not a Microsoft Studios game so it won’t be available on xbox live only, if it’s available on steam and those players download it there they won’t have the same server structure that you are currently implying. Right?

    • PauperStation FTL

      Respawn already made clear the game will not have all the niceties of the Xbox One version on any other platform.

    • Earnest Abiyah Hobley

      Because they are playing on microsofts servers the same as you playing on microsofts os. Why can’t people understand that. Microsoft got rich off of pc not gaming. When you think pc you think microsoft. Windows. Gears of War was also on PC. Once again a microsoft game being played on a Microsoft os. Did it come to ps3 also?No.

    • Danny Peel

      Gaikai.

      Also, this game is on PC and 360 as well. Neither of which have said infrastructure.

    • Earnest Abiyah Hobley

      Gaikai is for retrieving games. Let’s see what they themselves had to say. “I personally talked to both Microsoft and Sony and explained that we need to find a way to have potentially hundreds-of-thousands of dedicated servers at a price point that you can’t get right now. Microsoft realized that player-hosted servers are actually holding back online gaming and that this is something that they could help solve, and ran full-speed with this idea.

      You are mistaken. Titan Fall on PC and Xbox 360 will also utilize Microsoft’s servers. Maybe you should go to their website and read about it. For some reason you seem to forget that PC means windows and windows means Microsoft.

    • Danny Peel

      The whole cloud debate has been blown out of proportion. Neither service will have much of an impact on gaming. Do you really think an arena based shooter like Titanfall is benefiting massively from the cloud?. There have been people playing arena based shooters for YEARS without any problems whatsoever. PC gamers have been gaming to different degrees of cloud involvement for a long time and I doubt any of them would be able to tell you if it was a superior experience. Better matchmaking?, more stable servers?. Great… but frankly, I get disconnected from maybe 1 out of every 50 games I play… maybe 1 in 100… this is a solution to a problem that really doesn’t exist anymore. Most people playing online competitive games are doing so with solid network connections. Otherwise something like PlanetSide 2 just simply wouldn’t work.

      Oh yeah, PlanetSide 2. A massive 2000 player per continent game, coming to PS4 at or near launch. But wait, surely PS4 can’t even hope to run such a game without teh power of da xbotz cloud!!!.

  • Lev M

    this is 0% evidence that it’s coming to ps4

  • pedmart

    so, some people are hoping this online/multiplayer only game will show up in a year or 2 after releasing for the Xbox One. Maybe arounf the time for titanfall 2 or 3, they might be able to play TF1… ok, seems a little pathetic to me and tells me how good is this game. Well done MS, you got yourself a heck of game, its getting everyone’s attention and their envy too.
