It's already on the 360, and more importantly, on the PC. If a 360 can handle it, I'm assuming a computer that's been out since well after the release of the 360, just about any PC can handle it.

Kind of not a major selling point for the One as a result. =/

I wouldn't be surprised if the Xbone version of Titanfall outsells the PC version.
It doesn't matter if majority of the PCs can handle Titanfall, just look at the sales of AAA games on PC, so bad. :V

Not really, there are laptops/netbooks and even home PC's on the low end that would have a hard time chugging console games.

That said this game doesn't look like a heavy hitter even on the Xbox One and is most likely optimized so it'll probably play great on any PC*

Titanfall, the best looking game for Xbone that isn't even exclusive to it.

Kind of thought about this with Bergin's thread a bit back, and I'm slightly doubtful. Supposedly Xbox One has had a ton of Pre-Orders, but I'm slightly doubtful. I would be thrilled to bits if they did, but I just see it being a lot more popular for PC gamers.

People are really getting behind the Xbox One? Seriously?

Why on earth would anyone want to support Microsoft at this point? I mean, after everything? They're a terrible company who've shown nothing but contempt for the gamer. I'm really surprised that you (or anyone else) have the slightest care about any selling point the Xbox One might have.

Supporting Microsoft has to be about the worst thing an invested gamer can do at this point, after their plethora of anti-gamer sentiments around the announcements around Xbox One. I don't want console gaming to be a one horse race, either, but one can do so much better than the Xbox One.

I honestly believe PC be behind Xbox One if only slightly due to the Windows 8 requirement.

If anything it'll be 360 > One > PC with 360 having a huge lead over the other two. That said I wouldn't be surprised if PC surpasses One.

How is this game being distributed anyways, through Steam?

I'm in it for the games. Call me morally devoid, but I don't base my system choices off of the developer's reputation. I've been buying Xbox (and Playstation) since Jet Set Radio Future was released, so I've undoubtedly seen Microsoft's customer service through all of its ups and downs. I miss the days when every new game included a 2 Month XBL trial, but that's not going to stop me from buying Gold today. The Xbox One is bringing new entries into two of my favorite series at launch, and the way the system is now, that's too good a deal to pass up.

Emphasis on the word "not," there. I did not say this was a major selling point for the One, man. If anything, it was in agreement with what you said on a more overarching point -- their use of multiple Microsoft platforms, let alone immediate availability for the PC, means this is yet another avenue upon which the One won't be making it's name.

Mishtram, I was more puzzled by the emoticon, which, with your comment indicates that you're investedly (coining that word) concerned about whether or not the One has a major selling point.

I think there are some selling points, as with everything. The exclusives, in Halo, Ryse and the (pseudo) exclusive in Titanfall are some of the reasons I'm buying it. I buy consoles for the games, not for the company's reputation, because they are afterall gaming consoles =P. But I would call those games a major selling point, and that's my opinion.

Generally, that meant "this seems stupid," rather than that I disapprove for personal reasons. I think you'd have to read into my emote pretty hardcore to get "I'm a big Xbox One supporter." Pointing out that something makes little sense doesn't translate into being unhappy because it's personal interest; especially since a quick gander at my threads posted in my profile would have been much more telling (my last two threads were positive about the PS4 in the PS4 forum).

As an aside, I can be unimpressed with poor business choices in any context, regardless of my support for the businesses.

If anything the continued selling of the 360 is what would be more telling with my emote, given the context of my post. I generally have a poor view when a company makes use of both new and obsolete technology when selling their titles or output, and it's not a great thing. When a company is willing to make use of an obsolete yet popular platform so as to complement sales of the same game on the newer platform, it says a lot about the aims and viability of the latter platform.
