Sucker Punch: We'd Love Second Son To Beat Titanfall

Developing one of the first big games for a new console must be a daunting task.

The story is too old to be commented.
GraveLord1222d ago

Games are't comparable IMO.
Different genre. Different focus (story vs gameplay)...etc.

Prince-Ali1222d ago

so...? :S i dont see what thats got to do with the ability to 'beat' or 'outdo' another game in terms of sales..? :S

raWfodog1222d ago (Edited 1222d ago )

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.

sonarus1222d ago

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

OpieWinston1222d ago

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.

Volkama1222d ago

@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...

bmx_bandit1221d ago

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

Daniel_Potter1221d ago

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.

GraveLord1221d ago

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.

arinaborina1221d ago

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

cemelc1222d ago

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.

morganfell1222d ago

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.

SmielmaN1221d ago

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.

I_am_Batman1221d ago (Edited 1221d ago )

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.

medman1221d ago

You cannot have played the Infamous games with that may want to take a look at the Infamous wikis...the story in both Infamous 1&2 is pretty stellar.

SixtyNine1221d ago (Edited 1221d ago )

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!!!

Story and game play vs. Game play.

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.”

Tedakin1222d ago

Yup, the title makes it seem like there's trash talking going on. N4Gfail

Mikelarry1222d ago (Edited 1222d ago )

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

kingdom181221d ago

Look who submitted it though. It will make more sense.

No_Limit1222d ago (Edited 1222d ago )

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.

GuruMeditation1222d ago

Same here. Just installing second son now. Happy days for gaming, no matter your platform.

gamertk4211221d ago

Exactly Guru. I am the hugest Xbox Fanboy, but I'll be picking up my copy of Infamous today. :)

towelie12881222d ago

cant really compare these games with each other

Philoctetes1222d ago

Agreed, but you can certainly compare sales.

andibandit1221d ago (Edited 1221d ago )

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

Dudebro901222d ago (Edited 1222d ago )

How about that spin. Have a little class next time and don't butcher the quote and turn it into something its not.

Az1mov1222d ago (Edited 1222d ago )

They should stop with these sensational title on N4G :D
