Updated hourly, the Xbox One "Titanfall" bundle has been #1 on Amazon's Hot New Releases list since yesterday's reveal. Sitting comfortably at #2 is the Xbox One version of the highly anticipated first person mech shooter from EA and Respawn Entertainment. For Best Sellers, the console bundle is #7, while the game is #8. While anything can happen until the bundle's official release on March 11th, this early tracking should please Microsoft, who're banking on "Titanfall" to be their killer app title for their next-gen console.
Last month it was reported by the NPD that the PlayStation 4 outsold the Xbox One 2-to1 last January. In fact, despite an impressive worldwide sales of over 3 million, the Xbox One has been bested by Sony selling over 5 million PS4s. The "Titanfall" bundle, and the reduced UK price, is Microsoft's way of staying competitive with Sony and recapturing the North America dominance they previously had with the Xbox 360.
"Titanfall" will arrive on March 11 for the Xbox One and PC, while the 360 version will arrive on the 25th. Over 2 million players tested out the beta between February 15th to the 19th.
