Titanfall Debut to Help Xbox One Compete With PlayStation 4

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Microsoft's highly-anticipated new combat game Titanfall goes on sale in North America on Tuesday.  The company hopes the game will help drive sales for its Xbox One video game console that's been facing stiff competition from Sony's PlayStation 4.

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT:

Attention gamers -- Microsoft's (MSFT) highly-anticipated new combat game Titanfall is landing in North America.

Titanfall goes on sale Tuesday exclusively for the Xbox One and PCs, with another version for older Xbox 360 models becoming available on March 25.

The game is being released by publisher Electronic Arts (EA) and developer Respawn Entertainment, which was founded by two of the co-creators of the popular Call of Duty franchise, and has already generated significant buzz on social media.

The $60 sci-fi shooter game stands to help Microsoft's Xbox One in its competition for sales with Sony's (SNE) PlayStation 4, which both went on sale last November.

So far, it appears that Xbox One has been losing the console war, as sales data collected by NPD revealed that the PS4 outsold the Xbox One in the U.S. this January.  Xbox One is priced at $499 while the PS4 is priced one hundred dollars less.

Shares of Microsoft were... at last check.
