Same day as inFAMOUS Second Son? Why would they do that lol?

Abriael939d ago (Edited 939d ago )

wouldn't be the first time big games get released on the same day. The end of february and march are very, very packed this coming year.

BALLBAGS939d ago

Sony should release infamous a month later if they have any sense....

watchdogs is hyped to the max many people can't afford £110 on two games at once

infamous needs a release date all to itself

Unreal01939d ago

Isn't FF10HD also due out then? That's going to be one expensive day.

minimur12939d ago (Edited 939d ago )

shopto are infamous for stuff like this. Marsh is in q1 anyway which is different from what ubi have said about the release timeframe. I remember them advertising infamous as a launch game. shopto are a bit dirty when it comes to stuff like this. I highly doubt this being the official date

also, they didn't list this today (or yesterday, whenever this article was written) it's been like that or about maybe a week?

adventureghost124939d ago

Hey Ballsy
Infamous SS is one of the most anticipated exclusives for any console plus Sony was there first, after the whole debacle of Ubisoft delaying Watch_Dogs to boost the sales of they're the ones who should move over.

Rimeskeem938d ago

Oh god dammit

i have the money i just dont know what im going to do to play both at the same time

guitarded77938d ago

If it's true, it's a double edged sword... I'm hyped for both, but wish they'd be spread out a little bit... especially 2 open world games that take time to complete. May have to just get one on launch day and get the other when I finish the first. Whenever I buy multiple titles like that, one usually gets lost in the backlog. Trying not to make the same mistakes this gen.

Watch Dogs is on 6 platforms, Infamous is on one. They hardly have to worry about anything.

KAEM7939d ago

Agreed. Watchdogs sales won't be hurt much by Infamous.

For me personally, I will buy whatever turns out to be great (so probably both for ps4)

nukeitall939d ago

If anything, Infamous will be hurt by Watchdog and vice versa on PS4.

Other platforms won't be affected by this, but Titanfalls releases March 11 so Watchdog might be slightly hurt on Xbox One/360 since it is soo close.

People have only so much money to spend on short notice, but this might not be significant enough when the time frame is 10 days apart.

That said, wasn't Watch Dogs suppose to be released in May?

admiralvic939d ago

@ Nukeitall

It was delayed until "Spring 2014", though many people not so secretly believe the delay was bull crap. Not that it was delayed (though that was), but that Watch Dogs was delayed to make sure Assassins Creed IV would shine. If that was indeed the case, then releasing it sooner or later isn't a big deal.

hollabox939d ago

Watchdog for me on either the PC or PS4. If they look and perform similar, the PS4 for resale value later on down the road. But the good thing about March, its tax season so people should have a little something extra in their pocket.

Wow ubisoft is really fucking sony over. First they delay watch dogs from launch, and now they are going to canibalize sales of infamous.

Eonjay939d ago

Actually im willing to bet that this isnt the US date. Also May 21 is only US release date for Infamous. Europe is TBD.
Watch Dogs may release before Titanfall in the US.

Rimeskeem938d ago

This isnt going to stop the sales of infamous and i can guarantee you this

Sarcasm939d ago

It depends on if Watch Dogs is actually any good.

A lot of things point to Infamous SS being a good game. I enjoyed both 1 and 2.

quaneylfc939d ago

shopto are arguably the best gaming retailer on the web but they do just use any date to fill the release date part of the website, this is not trustworthy because i have seen them do it with a few games. the last one i remember was sleeping dogs (dogs is just a coincidence)

FunkMacNasty939d ago

also three days after Metal Gear Ground Zeroes as well

OpieWinston939d ago

Because Ubisoft KNOWS that it'll stomp Second Son in Quality and sales.

KwietStorm938d ago

You mean you *want* them to stomp inFamous in quality and sales.

OpieWinston938d ago

Brand new Innovative IP that has had 5 years of work done on it vs Super hero action adventure that never really did well
Aiden vs Delsin...No contest
Aiden = Baws
Delsin = Whinney bitch

We'll have to wait to see when they come out, but Delsin is a complete bitch and Aiden has come across as a total baws. Person of interest the game.

showtimefolks938d ago

its suppose to be Q2 2014 so i wouldn't put too much into this.

BALLBAGS

let's see one game is a new IP on new consoles and could turn out to be okay while another is established and has a fanbase and is exclusive so i don't think that matters as much. I for one will pick infamous before watch dogs if both come out at the same time

watch dogs is still not a true next gen game. its out on current systems too. For true next gen experiences, we have to get the next gen exclusives like wicther 3,infamous 2nd son,the order,drive club etc,

KwietStorm938d ago

What do you mean why? They have a right to sell their game too. It's not like inFamous is going to shut down the market. I know I'm getting both that day if this date is real though.

dmonee935d ago

If it does release on the same day as infamous then march and April will be busy for gamers. Let's not forget MLB the show and possibly Sony's "the order" scheduled to release in the same time frame. Plus Capcoms game deep down. I expect the order to be pushed back to next fall however March should be great. Spring is the official kickoff for Next Gen

Titanfall, infamous and watch_dogs. March seems to be a good month!

weekev15939d ago

Delivery date guaranteed......till Ubisoft delays it again. I do have faith in Ubisoft though, they have been very on the ball recently with the quality of the titles they have been pushing out.

darkstar18939d ago

this and MK8 are gonna be amazing cant wait to play both on wii u! ;)

IHassounah939d ago

I hope it releases in May instead , I really hope it releases then cause I'm gonna be buying MGS and Titanfall in March
