I’ll admit it: I assumed that the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall would be hot garbage, especially once we found out that Respawn — the studio behind the PC and Xbox One versions — hadn’t actually made it.
And now I’m happy to admit I was wrong: Digital Foundry did one of their in-depth performance analyses on last-gen Titanfall, and they say it runs relatively smoothly. The framerate is inconsistent, DF reports, but you can lock it at 30 FPS for a more consistent, albeit lower-quality performance. (You can see the framerate analysis in action above.)
Seems like the folks at Bluepoint Games pulled this one off. To quote Digital Foundry: “In summary, after a day with the Xbox 360 game, the big takeaway here is that this is Titanfall, and it does appear to be feature-complete on the older console. With just one tenth of the available RAM and far less capable silicon, it’s safe to say that Bluepoint Games has more than exceeded expectations.”
