Developing one of the first big games for a new console must be a daunting task.
Games are't comparable IMO. Different genre. Different focus (story vs gameplay)...etc.
so...? :S i dont see what thats got to do with the ability to 'beat' or 'outdo' another game in terms of sales..? :S
Before another fanboy rant begins, here's his complete quote (in case people don't take time to read the whole article): "“I would love it if we outdid Titanfall. But the fact that it’s such a cool game is great. Why does it have to be one or the other? It’s just great for players that there are so many fantastic games coming out.” So, good games for everyone means everyone can be happy :) Edit: I didn't see that The_Infected also made the same observation below.
I just started playing. So far I can say this game has some extremely impressive graphics I can't wait to see what rock star folks and naughty dog folks can do with the ps4
Maria just loves to flame bait....Putting them up in terms of sales is kind of pointless. Especially since they're both games with a lot of hype going into launch.
@raWfodog well said. The full quote is delivered with a totally different context to the flamebait title. He's showing the right attitude. Of course he wants his product to be successful, but he's also happy to see great games being made. They wont outsell Titanfall though, unless they exclude 360 and PC versions from the numbers...
This "Article" out of context and submitted by this user Maria is the perfect example why N4G has such a bad and negative reputation. Seriously I ask for the millionth time why such Articles get approved? Oh well….I know the answer…sadly
Very doubtfull that a game, that's exclusive to onyl 1 platform, can beat a game that's exclusive on 3 platforms in terms of sale And still i don't think it can beat Titanfall. I played the beta, and there is just nothing else like it. Infamous SS on the other hand shares the same problem that the 1st and 2nd did, and that's gameplay. 1st and 2nd are basically played like a 3rd person shooter, you have you basic shooting mode, then the grenades, slow mo sniper mode, rocket launcher, and you use energy sources to power up(reload).Infamous SS in my opinion gameplay wise resembles DMC or some form of hack & slash. You don't really feel like you are playing a superhero game, and i think it's bad when a game about a superhero can't give you that feeling.
It has everything to do with it. For one, a shooter will always have the advantage. Those game are popular in every single country. inFamous is about a superhero who you choose to be evil or good. Compare Call Of Duty to Titanfall. Compare inFamous to Watch Dogs. Compare Tomb Raider to Uncharted. This goes for sales or anything else. These are much better comparisons.
I think they got beat by Titanfall, at least in the preorder charts of vgchartz they did
Infamous really is a gameplay game, no one I'm sure plays it for it's story. It's good but nothing like games like last of us which biggest focus is story. I always thought infamous as a gameplay game
I love plot for infamous games, the first one was amazing, the second one evil ending was really cool. I got platinum on both of them.
Exactly cemelc. When you discover the truth about what is going on in inFamous and the nature of the main villain it's one of the best twists in the history of games. The plot is outstanding.
The stories (good and evil) are fun to play through. I don't know what your talking about. It's a all round, near perfect series IMO. Only games I felt compelled to platinum.
Both Infamous games have a really great story imo. The first Infamous has one of the best plot twists I've seen in games. I agree if you compare character depth and how the story is told to The Last of Us it's not quite on the same level though. But honestly how many games can keep up with TLOU in that regard?
I think it's a good thing that games are compared to the best cause it raises the quality level of games in general. I don't see a problem though when a game doesn't raise the bar in every possible way as long as it's an enjoyable experience.
@dantevfenris You cannot have played the Infamous games with that comment...you may want to take a look at the Infamous wikis...the story in both Infamous 1&2 is pretty stellar.
@Dante I agree with you. inFamous is more about gameplay than anything else. But I think they've improved the storytelling aspect of the series with Second Sons.
A company would like their product to sell better than another companies product?!?!?! Shocking!!!
I'd love for a drintling of wild turkeys to sing a Beethoven sonata in perfect harmony, but tha' TAIN GWAN HAPPEN!
Story and game play vs. Game play.
Single player vs Multi player
Actually he says: “I would love it if we outdid Titanfall. But the fact that it’s such a cool game is great. Why does it have to be one or the other? It’s just great for players that there are so many fantastic games coming out.”
Yup, the title makes it seem like there's trash talking going on. N4Gfail
that title was word for word what MCV posted if we are pointing fingers not an N4G poster trying to twist what nate fox meant
Look who submitted it though. It will make more sense.
What a misleading headline. Both are great games in their own right. Not surprising as it is submitted by Maria! Got both games and will enjoy them both.
Same here. Just installing second son now. Happy days for gaming, no matter your platform.
Exactly Guru. I am the hugest Xbox Fanboy, but I'll be picking up my copy of Infamous today. :)
cant really compare these games with each other
Agreed, but you can certainly compare sales.
It's real hard to compare sales of these 2 games. Single player games have a higher tendency to return to the used market faster, than multiplayer games, of course also depending on the popularity of the multiplayer games. If you are looking at like first week sales, I guess its comparable
How about that spin. Have a little class next time and don't butcher the quote and turn it into something its not.
They should stop with these sensational title on N4G :D
infamous will beat titanfall on xbox one in sales.
Its simple math, the Ps4 has a 2+ million console lead, so I dare say it better beat Titanfall.
Disagree. Xbone sales for infamous are going to be nowhere near Titanfall levels.
Infamous has 1million pre orders I believe it will sell better tha Titanfall
I see some 'disagrees' didn't catch the word play :)
@dawnofdon Guess your source is that dodgy unknown prosony site with a derp? Their source is their ass.
Whether it beats it or not, playing Infamous SS right now and it's so much fun, reminds me why I loved Infamous 1 so much back on the PS3.
The graphics are stupid good, best looking game on console right now. The story and the way ppl move is really good too.
Titanfall has no match to the power of hipster neon blast. Lol jk
It might beat it on sales but titanfall knocks this game on its ass
All opinion clearly
Even as an opinion, it's ridiculous.
I would go the other way round
But Infamous SS is already set to beat titanfall. And I'm glad Simply because I want gamers to be reminded that hype counts for nothing. Sucker Punch or Sony are going to announce 1 million Infamous SS sell through in the next 24hours. And the usually boastful MS wont release TF numbers because it hasn't reached a million yet and to admit that what they billed as a system seller hasn't yet met expectations will be a huge blow. But infamous is going to make that fact apparent with the 1 mill sell through. infamous has 300K + preorders in the EU and 400K in NA. If 300K people pick it up worldwide day 1... It's a wrap!!!
Yea i find it odd microsoft didnt release any sales numbers yet
@Black probably because they don't really care tbh it doesn't really matter
@DawnOfDon Or because they're not the publishers and don't even know about the sales numbers?
titanfall right now is outselling infamous. where are you getting your eu preorder at?300k link please? I bet infamous is going sell between 600- 700k first week
Come on now, SS was hyped as well so you are also saying you hope it fails which is just ridiculous for "gamers" to want. The dev wants all to succeed to keep the industry thriving. You and those that think like/agree with you need to change your way of thinking. I'm probably wasting my time but at least I tried.
SS was hyped. Can't deny that. But I don't think anyone can say that the amount of hype surrounding TF wasn't unprecedented. For most of the last month it dominated gaming sites with articles and ads. SS got some notice, but no more than most big releases do. However, despite all the hype, it hasn't sold as much as I thought it would. So with that I can say that, as always, hype isn't indicative of sales, which is true for SS at the moment as well, since we don't know the numbers.
Going to pick up my preorder now. It sounds like Sucker Punch put everything they had into this. Gonna be playing it all weekend.
I wouldn't doubt it will. Probably world wide
It's very possible... PS4 has over 6 mil sold to gamers, and if only 1/4 of the users buy I:SS, that's enough to outsell Titanfall. My copy is at home waiting for me :)))
Is difficult to beat an MP like TITANFALL with an SP even with the instal base of ps4 and no options in exclusive. Infamous could sell more than TITANFALL launch day but TITANFALL will keep selling for long time. From selling point of view TITANFALL is a winner vs infamous without doubt.
The thing about mostly MP players is that they generally also play SP. The same is not true in reverse. Some people truly hate MP games, and they outweigh those that truly hate SP games by a large margin. I think TF will have it's players playing longer, just because it's a MP game, but given the discrepancy of the install base, and the fact it's probably the most anticipated game for the PS4, means it's likely to keep selling for as long as people are buying the system over the rest of the year. This is until the next big game drops for it. Same with X1's next big thing.
Both look like great games but the killing points of both are being only SP and MP.
I'm not saying it won't and that I don't want it to, because having a story driven game sell tons of copies these days IS something to rave about, but I'm being realistic when I say TF is on 3 platforms compared to SS's 1. In any case, Jesus Christ it's been a good month for the industry. Holy crap, right? 9's EVERYWHERE.
Two different games, but to be honest Titanfall is on three different platforms while inFamous is on only PS4. Another reason not to compare, just buy the game and enjoy!
Both are great games but second son wont beat titanfall mainly because second son is only on the ps4 & titanfall is on 3 different platforms!! Meh...
