EA Inc.’s Titanfall and Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox One Titanfall Bundle led pre-order sales at Best Buy Co. Inc. prior to launch of the title.
This week, Titanfall ranked as the No. 1 best-selling game pre-order at BestBuy.com.
In addition, the Xbox One Titanfall Bundle ranked at No. 2 in the same period.
Titanfall, to be sold Mar. 11, will be sold in a standard edition at $59.99 and a Collector’s Edition SKU that includes an 18-inch Atlus Titan Statue with battery-powered LED lighting, 190-page art book, and Atlas Titan schematic poster at $249.99.
The bundle, to be sold Mar. 11, will include the Xbox One Console, Kinect Sensor, Headset, 1-Month Xbox Live Code, and Titanfall Game Token at $499.99.
Developed by Respawn Entertainment, Titanfall is a ground and mech combat-based multiplayer title.
The Xbox One SKU is said to utilize cloud computing resources to offload physics and AI routines.
The title will utilize cloud technology to run dedicated servers for multiplayer sessions. The technology can allow the developers to scale task work up and down depending on the number of users, or upload new programs for deployment.
The final game will utilize a modified version of Valve Corp.’s Source Engine to maintain a 60 frames-per-second fidelity.
