Titanfall Xbox 360 appears to have been sold early through retailers, as suggested by photos of the game’s box. The images also confirm that a 1GB install is required before playing.

The image comes from Titanfall Blog, which has posted photos of the front, back and inside of the Titanfall Xbox 360 box. The latter image shows a bundled Xbox Live trial card complete with French text.

A gamer in Brazil has also tweeted out that they had been trying to get their copy of Titanfall Xbox 360 to connect, which caught the eye of Respawn Entertainment:

The game is due to launch April 8 in the States, then April 11 across Europe. We’ll have more next week.

    This version is coming out in mere days and there isn’t a single screenshot or video from it. This leads me to believe either:
    A. Titanfall on 360 is an unplayable disaster.
    or
    B. Titanfall on 360 looks and runs really closely compared to Xbox One version.

    Don’t know why but I get a big smiley face instead of the twitter pic when using firefox.

    @The_Red – Or you know, the servers are offline since it isn’t officially released yet, like it implies in the tweets above (in the article).

    Or
    C. None of the above.

    Microsoft has sold millions upon millions of 360′s. Now it wants to sell millions of Xbox Ones. The deal it made with EA actually conflicts with its own agenda of selling the X1 due to the fact that there are many more 360′s in the home than there are X1′s. That deal had to be made to assure EA that TF will sell millions even without it being available for the Playsration. MS has stalled the release of TF and will continue to push the X1 version even after the 360 release.

    I don’t expect a big difference between the 360 version to the X1. The game wasn’t built to be eye candy. It was built with the promise of continued dedicated servers. PC gamers have enjoyed dedicated servers, but console gamers not so much. This is where “the cloud” comes in and makes it possible for Respawn to have what it requested from Sony and MS. MS, responded more quickly, hence the deal being made with EA.

    Prioritising XB1 is one thing.

    Having what many pro-Microsoft gamers insist is “The biggest release of the first half of the year” and not showing a single piece of media for the 360 platform is another thing entirely.

    There’s a point where you realise it’s not so much as shining a spotlight to show off the X1 version, as to deliberately keep the 360 version in the dark.

    There’ve been plenty of cross-gen releases already. Notably titles like AC4, Thief and so on. In particular Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeros went to considerable effort to showcase the game on all 4 of the platforms it was releasing on.

    It’s a contradiction to keep showcasing your title and to imply it practically doesn’t exist at the same time. Justifying that behaviour is pretty blatant damage control.
