Wow,if true I thought it would have sold at least a 1+Mil

@U got owned there i fixed it dont cry now.

PSN-JeRzYzFyNeSt1249d ago (Edited 1249d ago )

WOW Sony played it smart well done.... Saved up PS4 and sent them during the week of titanfall launch smart by sony

now its Sonys week with MGS:GZ and imfamous:ss coming should be another good week

yes i know GZ is on both consoles

JMaine5181249d ago

Yea they did. I was wondering why all these sites had ps4s available. Titanfall was releasing duh. Good move

n4rc1249d ago

I noticed it was back in stock a lot of places.. If planned, very smart indeed..

Bigpappy1249d ago

Yes. It was a good PR move. But I still see US numbers as way too low for 4days of sales. I will wait on other reports. Even this rumors is admitting to guessing the U.S. numbers.

Godmars2901249d ago

@Bigpappy:
Thing is after four days why does anyone have to guess?

Even if sales numbers are "only" 2 million, MS should be crowing.

SilentNegotiator1249d ago (Edited 1249d ago )

No announcement from EA/MS about a million sold means that these numbers are probably pretty accurate.

So much for that "insider" who said that this game already pushed a million Xbones, days ago. It didn't even push a million pieces of itself on week one.

abzdine1249d ago (Edited 1249d ago )

imagine what will happen when inFamous hits the shelves as well as MGSV (exclusively on PS4 PS3 in japan).

now EA can s*** it

vigilante_man1249d ago

Wait for the 360 version. It may sell more than the pc and the xb1 versions put together.

The hardware sales is a shock. I would of expected way more xb1 sales. And just to stick the boot in the PS4 sales go nuts again.

Clever stock replacement by Sony.

NewMonday1249d ago

This is shockingly low for a hyped FPS

To compare GOW3 on the PS3 sold over 1 million day1

Also inFAMOUSSS already had 600k pre-orders as of last week, so by now it should have well over 700k from pre-orders alone

If day1 numbers for inFAMOUSSS beat Titanfall's 4 day sales the Internet will break in half

I don't see what the big deal is with fans thinking selling 700k copies is bad for the first week. There are only 3.7m XBO's out there, so 700k, which means TitanFall has a 1:5 attach ratio which is really good for a new title.

The XBO sold 2 million units it's first week, and even COD the king of annual sales only sold 500k copies on the XBO. This is why I said TitanFall would rank around 700k units, and sure enough it did.

Not every XB owner is into fps, or games similar to COD, there are reasons why Ryse, Forza, and Dead Rising 3 sold well.

What is telling is that if these number are true, then MS is in real trouble, because Sony just beat them even with their system seller launching and being bundled in. MS is in serious trouble, and their leaders are out in full planning on what to show at E3, a price drop or cheaper SKU for the holiday, and what they need to do to make up the sells difference for the rest of the generation.

We'll see what Metal Gear and inFamous do for PS4 this week. Japan should have a nice boost thanks to MG, but PS3 will take most of the sales again. InFamous normally isn't a huge system seller, but considering it's the first exclusive with the potential to be a true AAA on the console it might do wonders, especially since everything said about the game has been good from fans, journalist, and gamers who got an early copy.

Sitdown1249d ago

Perhaps one day people will understand that Microsoft is not in trouble just because the ps4 sells more.... It's in trouble if it's not selling period. There is enough money around for both to exist.

PONTIAC08G8GT1249d ago

I wouldn't expect Titanfall to outsell Infamous considering the PS4 user base is twice the size of the X1 user base, it's simple math. I'd like to know total Titanfall sales, PC, 360, and X1. I know 360 isn't out yet, but the game is selling very well considering their are only roughly 3 million X1 owners and it's a multiplayer only game. Nice job MS.

Pain1249d ago

Back in the great console war on yesteryear's if a Sony game didn't sell 1m plus on launch day the xbox fan kiddies would call it a complete Fail..

harrisk9541249d ago (Edited 1249d ago )

@PSN-JeRzYzFyNeSt

I know what you are saying about MGS:GZ being on both consoles... So, let me finish your thought: It is on both consoles, but is really considered a PS title and will sell significantly more on the PS platforms... and the PS4 version is the definitive version anyway.

Crystallis1249d ago

@Abizzel

"""I don't see what the big deal is with fans thinking selling 700k copies is bad for the first week"""

that's not bad, but the ridiculous amount hype around the game, 700k seems a bit low. Xbox fans were calling it a million + easy.

E2S1249d ago

"Sony played it smart well done.... Saved up PS4 and sent them during the week of titanfall launch smart by sony"

Is this what happened? goddamn that is smart.

TheTwelve1249d ago

You know you're on top when all you have to do to beat your competitor is release more consoles that week.

Godmars2901249d ago

@harrisk954:
"and the PS4 version is the definitive version anyway."

Except wont the XB1 version have an added character, Raiden, and play mode? As opposed to the PS1 skin for Snake on the PS4.

ABizzel11249d ago

@Sitdown

MS's Xbox brand is in trouble. The 360 sales have tanked off the map, and the XBO is being outsold by the PS4, and running neck and neck with the PS3 (it was losing at first, but TitanFall may have pushed it ahead of the PS3 now).

Getting outsold by a console that's suppose to be on it's last leg is not doing fine. This is going to be a shorter generation, and if the XBO is selling on par with PS3 then at most it's selling 8 million consoles for 2014, which is what the PS3 sold in 2013. That's not bad, but it's not good either compared to the PS4 which is on track to sell at least 12 million and likely MUCH MORE. IT becomes a problem, because game wise Sony is MS direct competitor, and MS has no stranglehold on developers this gen, which means they'll have the weaker box, the more expensive box, and weaker developer support all generation. That's why sales matter.

It's not the end of the XBox brand if they get outsold, but the quality of the XBO is going to diminish in comparison to the PS4, because games will run better, look better, and be lead SKUs on PS4. It'll be like 360 vs PS3 in early 2007 - 2009. Media and fans try to downplay this, but that's the reality of the situation they're in, just like it was the reality of PS fans back then, no matter how they tried to deny it.

@Crystallis

I agree, and I said the hype for TitanFall was way too much, and nothing but industry overhype and hopeful COD fans looking for that new twist.

But realistically TitanFall wasn't going to sell 2 million copies like fanboys were hoping. 1 million was possible, but 700k is much more likely.

TitanFall is a good game, but one of the mot overhyped of all time. It's a solid 8+/10, but media and fanboy hype sold it as a 11/10 lol.

morganfell1249d ago (Edited 1249d ago )

I called it the other day by monitoring several high profile US retailers. THESE ARE NOT RUMORS. Here are my 2 posts with all the links and info you need. It is 2 posts in a row that contain all the info. Not from VGChartz or some source, but from retailers and it shows how the PS4 could not be moved from the top spot and in one instance how restocking knocked the competition right of the throne:

Rustynail1249d ago

MGS? That's not an exclusive.

jnemesh1249d ago

@Badboy776 The GAME isn't a flop. They moved over 700,000 copies (a good chunk of those paid for by MS directly and included "Free", but still). However, it IS a flop in the sense that it failed to move any significant number of Xbox One consoles.

My guess is that the majority of the console sales in Q4 last year were made up of the "die hard" Xbox fans (fanatics)...and the sales now reflect the reality of the majority of what most people look for in a console...lower hardware costs, no invasive Kinect, and higher quality playing GAMES.

Microsoft's BIG mistake this gen was focusing on being a video content gateway...but how many devices do you really need in your home to provide Netflix? Between my game consoles, Chromecast, tablets, and computers, I already have MORE than enough options there, and I don't have to subscribe to an additional service to enjoy them! Yes, "hardcore" gamers will already have XBL, but if someone just wants something to "enhance" their TV experience, or is looking for a console SPECIFICALLY for video streaming, the XBL "tax" is going to turn them away.

morganfell1249d ago

@rusty,

In some ways it is. The differences between the PS4 version and the X1 version are stark, some of the most pronounced we have seen.

BTBuck11249d ago

As far as i'm concerned, if a game is on both consoles... it doesn't exist on both consoles...PS4 or bust.

Ahh who am I kidding, I'm not buying a XB1, I'm perfectly covered with wiiU and ps4 :)

ABizzel11249d ago

@Rustynail

It might as well be. MGS HD Collection was the first chance for the XB360 to see pretty much most of the Metal Gear franchise, and sales were abysmal compared to the PSV / PS3 versions.

generalthadeape1249d ago (Edited 1249d ago )

Yep.

It felt kind of awkward bringing my Xbox One in to GameStop to trade it in on a PS4.

That was the week before TitanFall dropped.

I was fed up with the Xbox One's shady hardware and I got to the point that I didn't want anything to do with that system at all.

That's too bad becuase I did manage to play the TitanFall beta and had a really good time playing that game, too.

To get my PS4, I had to make friends with my local GameStop manager and kept bugging him the day the PS4s arrived until he finally caved in, but at least I got what I wanted.

It's really too bad that TitanFall isn't going to be released on the PS4, I really think that game is quite fun.

TitanFall is fun, yes, but not to the point where I would want to put up with what is clearly an "inferior" machine.

I personally think that it was a mistake for Respawn to sell their souls to the devil with TitanFall because they surely released their game on the "weaker" machine.

Knowing this going forward, I'm wondering if those fellows will be wise enough to tell Microsoft to take a jump in a lake when TitanFall 2 comes out.

If not, I guess I will simply have to spend my gaming budget elsewhere.

so now we count sale number based on rumors... OK

Alan_Shore1249d ago

Hey! Insidederp is a very reliable website! Surely you have heard of it!

nukeitall1249d ago

It isn't even rumors, because a rumor has to has a source!

Fabricated news isn't rumors, even though they often go for the same!!!

We just have to wait and see for official numbers, but in the meanwhile I will enjoy 15ms ping in Titanfall every day.

gaming2death1249d ago (Edited 1249d ago )

Exactly, And the thing is this site (insiderp) is basically the sony version of Mistermediax. Yet you can no longer even get a rumor Mistermediax posted on this site approve. So I'm calling it now, if these numbers are not accurate then insiderp articles are no longer allowed on N4G.

tiremfej1249d ago

Thing is MisterX' and his "rumours" are actually coming to fruition.
