“To give [developers Bluepoint] the time they need to put the finishing touches on the current-gen version of the game, we are moving the Xbox 360 ship date to March 25 in North America and March 28 in Europe,” EA’s Patrick Soderland said in a statement. “The extra two weeks will ensure the full world of Xbox gamers has an awesome experience.

    OR they just want more sales on the XB1.

    Not sure why anyone would risk getting the 360 version, we’ve seen nothing on it. Personally i’m unsure where to play this, Just bought a beast of a PC, so it’s either that or XB1.

    @Hcw87 I wouldn’t be surprised if that was the case, with the sales thing I mean.

    If I had a decent spec PC I’d just get it on there, even if I had an Xbox One, since it would play so much better.

    So many people have an Xbox 360, I’m not sure that would effect people’s decision to jump ship to nextgen because of having to wait 2 weeks.
    I’d expect the experience to be somewhat like COD on 7th gen consoles, since Titanfall seems like that, but with more futuristic tech & free running/air jumps.

    No doubt the 360 version of TF will be cheaper, maybe it won’t play quite as well as the XB1 version, but to some people nextgen consoles are a bit of a risk at the moment, so they may prefer to play it safe & save their cash for when more games come that definitely interest them.

    There’s always a chance MS will offer an upgrade to the XB1 version of the game or a cross buy for a fee down the line.

    Hcw87, the answer is always PC.

    Maybe it’s a genuine delay, but I can definitely see Microsoft being happy about this, because yeah, it’ll convince a lot of people to get an Xbox One “just so they can play with their friends”.

    Personally I am going to try out the beta and get my fill from there. Will be surprised if I feel compelled to buy an all-out multiplayer game.
