Titanfall has helped save the Xbox One’s sales, massively boosting the next gen platform since its launch last week. Sales in the UK for the Xbox One console rocketed by 96%, with many consumers taking advantage of the reduced Titanfall bundle which was announced a few weeks back.
Since its release on Friday in the UK, Titanfall proved to be so huge that just on that day alone it accounted for 70% of the weekly games sales. Microsoft reviewed their UK strategy and decided to reduce the Xbox One console from £429 to £399 and throw in a digital download of Titanfall in a themed box for good measure.
This deal has clearly got people interested as it looks like these bundles have flown off the shelves, with pre-orders also very high globally. EA has announced that Titanfall has now been hailed as the biggest release of 2014 so far, which will bode well for Microsoft and the Xbox One going forward. The Xbox exclusivity has been crucial advantage against Sony and the PS4 who are still largely dominating.
When Titanfall arrived on Xbox One and PC on Friday, CVG reports that it accounted for 94% of first week sales. The game is still is to get its Xbox 360 release and a potential Mac launch too, which will breed further confidence and positives in this highly competitive games console market.
