Microsoft's highly-anticipated new combat game "Titanfall" goes on sale Tuesday exclusively for the Xbox One and PCs, with another version for older Xbox 360 models available on March 25. The $60 sci-fi shooter game stands to help Microsoft's Xbox One in its competition for sales with Sony's PlayStation 4, which both went on sale last November. It appears that the Xbox One has been losing the console war, as sales data collected by NPD revealed that the PS4 outsold the Xbox One in January.
