Microsoft VP Phil Harrison has tipped Titanfall to be Xbox One’s killer app.
He told MCV that Xbox One is beating its rivals when it comes to games, calling out the reception Titanfall received at E3. The EA-published game is exclusive to Xbox One and 360 (there is also a PC version).
“The most important thing is the games. And coming out of E3, we had almost twice as many ‘game of the show’ nominations than our nearest competitor,” he said.
“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.
“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.”
