Nope. They don't conflict because they're on different platforms. If there was any overlap, then they would, but there's not.

PS owners will buy Infamous: SS.

Xbox owners will buy Titanfall.

agreed...100% my first reaction was your comment.
this is just click bait.
smh ...media these days kill me.
was this a rhetorical question?

HaveAsandwich1297d ago

im actually buying ss for ps4, and tf for the 360. so still, no.

miyamoto1297d ago

Titanfall will be released on 3 platforms while Delsin Rowe's game is PS4 only....hmn

@TomShoe

Well said, just what I was thinking when I read the title.

And they're also completely different, not in competition with each other like BF and CoD.

"I was just about to buy Infamous:SS, an open world action game, for my PS4, but then I realized that I needed to buy an Xbox One and Titanfall, an online FPS."

...said no one ever.

JeffGUNZ1297d ago

I agree it shouldn't, the only thing that would effect it is marketing. I still don't see that being much of an issue as these games won't be competing against eachother on the same platforms. Not sure I agree with this authors view at all here.

firelogic1297d ago

What if you have both and because you have both, you have limited funds and can only buy one game? And you can only play one game at a time, so which one gets sacrificed!!?

WeaseL1297d ago

@firelogic if you have both I don't think funds will be an issue.

There is literally no overlap:

- Different consoles
- completely different genres
- one is completely online; one is completely SP
- one has an established fanbase; one is a new IP

GTgamer1297d ago

-_- are you serious system exclusives People on PS4 will buy Second since it's only on PS4 duh.

NeoTribe1297d ago

The author knows that. Hes just trying to start a fanboy war. Will prolly succeed.

sigfredod1297d ago

Stupid question!, different systems, diferent genres and diferent target gamer crowd

These games will compete, MS and EA will be marketing the hell out of TF, and Sony already has a marketing campaign planned for Infamous Second Son. But one thing is for sure, there is a hype surrounding both that's at a fever pitch, and considering that the luster of launch software has over stayed it's welcome, the novelty of launch software has worn off and both Next Gen Console owners will lap up the 2 biggest releases of the new year!

In short expect both infamous and Titan Fall to perform well. People will buy an Xbox One for Titan Fall, and People will buy PS4s for Infamous Second Son.

I suspect that Infamous fans who already made the jump to ps4 will get this game to clear a million units easily, while PS4 users ready for something other than KZ, Knack, BF4, COD and AC4 will eat up Infamous in a heart beat pushing this to 2 million easily on one platform. Titan fall will benefit from 360 users who don't have $500 to upgrade, XBO users who are over Ryse, Forza, and DR3, and from PS fanboys or users who want TF on PC.

It'll be a great month for Both Sony and MS and we'll get an accurate read on how the market interests are for both platforms.

.......

The hell kind of dumb question is that?

truefan11297d ago (Edited 1297d ago )

Lol NO, Titanfall is on xbox microsoft systems and infamous is on ps4. End of story no need to further debate. People who like the games will buy them, no one is going to say, "I like Titanfall, so I am not buying infamous."

xxShadow-Shockxx1297d ago

For once your not fanboying thank you, I agree 100% bubble for you

AceBlazer131297d ago

How is an fps on xbone, 360 and pc gonna effect an open world adventure on ps4? Unless everyone owned both consoles, the 2 are irrelevant to each other.
