Titanfall isn't being published by Microsoft Game Studios. It's being developed within EA by the new Respawn studio. It's being published by EA, a publisher known for putting their games on every platform possible. It wouldn't surprise me if Titanfall made it's way to the PS4 eventually. It's going to be a big hit on the X1. It has a broad appeal and would sell if released on the PS4 too. EA is a business. Putting Titanfall on the PlayStation later is a good way to make a lot more money off of a game that will clearly be very successful.
In my opinion it will release on PS4 eventually. However, just like Mass Effect, it'll do alot better on X1 just because the brand will be associated with that console.
If it doesnt, then just another reason to scoop an X1 in 2014.
I can kind of see that, but the 360 also just had more units sold in that time period. That coupled with bad port jobs to the PS3 for like the first half of the generation with a few offenders still being guilty of it every now and then. *cough* Skyrim *cough*
Mass Effect was one of the main reasons I bought a 360. I wasn't going to buy any sequels for my PS3 when it went multiplat. Especially after I have a save from the first game with all of my decisions on it. When BioShock, Saints Row, Lost Planet, Mass Effect, and whatever else went multi, the 360 still had a larger install base. Especially in North America where a lot of franchises like COD flourish.
I think the amount of exclusives Sony has been producing affected it too. BioShock: Infinite had less to compete with on the 360. On the PS3 there was a new Sly Cooper and God of War. Plus The Last of Us, Ni No Kuni, Tales of Xillia, Beyond: Two Souls, Dragon's Crown, The Puppeteer, and a new MLB: The Show. With a new Ratchet & Clank and Gran Turismo still coming. Not everyone can afford to buy 82 games at a time like Jetpac.
I don't see a PSX/PS2 sized market share ever happening again, but I feel like if the PS4 gets a larger install base, that multiplatform games will do better just because of sheer numbers. Especially if they're better optimized.
