That's good to know. So what's this then?
That's changing the region of your account which isn't what is happening on Xbox One.

As a UK user, when I change my locale settings to the US, my account doesn't become a US account.

You don't need to migrate your account like on the link you posted, it's a simple settings change on the console.

Oh, interesting. So I can access the US Games Store through VPN and keep my gamertag UK registered? And save money?! So doing this.
You don't even need VPN. It's just a matter of switching your console's region and restarting the Xbox and you're there.

I never even setup a VPN, and I am buying from US marketplace since day1 (from Germany). Never owned so many games at the beginning of a new gen, lol, but the prices are just irresistible.

My metascore prediction is 88.

I just wonder how the media at large will react to a full priced console game that's basically multi-only. I think that there'll be some holdouts who can't adjust and mark it down for that.

I predict a lot of 8s just because campaign multiplayer doesn't seem all it was cracked up to be and some reviewers just won't be able to handle a multiplayer-only console exclusive.

Went to the Austin Microsoft Store community meetup today to do with the Titanfall launch. 50 people got VIP tickets to the event tomorrow, any Gaffers manage to get one?

Met Jeff Rubenstein and went for ribs with him and some great people from Mojang and Rooster Teeth. Had a really great time! Larry Hyrb (Major Nelson) turned up at one point which was cool.. then went to a local arcade called Pinballz!

Titanfall launch event is tomorrow, it gets livestreamed to Twitch if anyone hasn't heard about it. Starts at 9pm I believe.
I got one brad, looking to see you there tonight :D

I'm so excited it was hard to sleep.

I doubt EA have review scores run by them before they go online.
I'm pretty dang sure the publisher gets the review scores from major sites before it goes public, especially with a high profile title published by worst company in America (lol)

EU pre-load hasn't even started yet :(
Start the preload using a VPN.

Once it's started just connect through your normal connection and you'll get full speed. This wasn't working yesterday, but they must have made the data available to the EU servers even though origin won't let an EU server initiate a preload

Battlefield's been like that since it's first iteration and that game kicked ass. Whiners gonna whine.

Staying away from the review discussions, depending on the reviews I can sense what's going to happen, a mixture of common sense smeared with either childish gloating or claims of being paid off.

Probably ben asked and answered 100 times already - so ignore me if you want.

When should the game be available digitally on XBOX ONE in Germany?
About 6AM tomorow (11th) in Germany if you change your region settings on the Xbox One to US.

Still standing by for Simplycdkeys to send my key :(
You will be waiting a few days..

'Thank you for your email.

We can confirm that Titanfall will be emailed to you 24 to 48 hours before the release date, 14/03/14.

Kindest Regards'


I jumped ship and canceled it, and then popped on the other boat to Mexico ;)

Whelp. I am done for the day, time to sleep for work the next two nights.



Enjoy the Launch everybody, absolutely awesome game. Not without its flaws, but an excellent first effort as a "new" studio by the folks at Respawn. They should be proud.


Also, to reiterate, the art direction on these maps is absolutely stunning. Titanfall 2 will be quite the game.

I made an incorrect statement yesterday stating the generation challenges were the same as BETA. There has been several changes, for example they nerfed all the challenge requirements and removed the 'Arc Grenade' kills challenge.

In case people don't know, generations are TitanFall's equivalent of Call of Duty's prestige system.
You have to reach Max Level (which is 50) and complete certain challenges to reach the next generation.

Is it safe to do so?

Can I change my region again afterwards?
Yes, yes. It's fully supported. You just change your region in Xbox One Settings app. It will ask you to reboot your console. Then you're on US store. Do whatever, then change back. Source: I've done this.

Anyone that's been playing with the modified .exe know if the US and Europe servers are up? Or when we use a VPN to launch the game at the time it releases in South-Korea only Asian servers will be up? I guess once we're in we can turn off the VPN and try to join US or Europe servers if they're up.

The reviews are hitting today? Need to get some popcorn :)
I am a little annoyed that there's no way it's going to win with a lot of the doubters though. Either it's going to get relatively low reviews and they'll feel validated that the hype was premature and manufactured. OR the reviews will be awesome and they'll feel validated that the hype was manufactured because the media must have been all bought out.

Doesn't really matter though. A lot of people are playing the retail now and enjoying it so I'm hyped to get my copy. But you're right. The review thread will be entertaining either way.

This may be a dumb question but I'll ask it anyway. I ordered the game from that Russian website from the slick deals offer that cost like $34. They sent me the product key and I've now preloaded the game. My copy isn't going to be in Russian or anything weird like that is it? Everything should be good to go?
