inFAMOUS: Second Tops UK Sales Charts; Metal Gear Solid V PS4 Sells Three Times as Much as Xbox One

inFAMOUS: Second Son launched last Friday, and predictably enough it came up on top of last week’s sales charts for the US, released today by GFK Chart-Track. Second Ranker is Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, that sold almost three times as many copies on PS4 than on Xbox One. Titanfall holds strong at number three. (inFamous: Second Son, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

your comment Shows 2 things:

1.The hypocrisy is pretty strong here
last gen when ps3 was beating the hell out of xbox in exclusives
xbox fans: ""exclusives don't matter and who cares about exclusives it's all about 3rd party games""
and since ps4 is beating xbox on all fronts
you guys run back to exclusives matter again
even though this won't end well for you just like every gen so far
but now you guys are saying ps4 owners don't have games to play even though it have tons of games exclusives and 3rd party games
(same thing you guys said with ps3 early days)

2.TF dropped 73% in sales and getting beat by Infamous SS and MGS and you guys said it's a ""system seller""
after looking at this chart
it wouldn't shock me if it drop from the chart after few weeks

Xbox owners are so desperate that they're making TitanFall into the second coming of jesus. News flash, its a call of duty game with mech and super high jump hacks. You choose a gun and you try to get as many kills. Start new match and repeat. Oh yeah forgot, try to get into a mech without getting killed. Anything else?

So, what I can't understand is: why can a user make comments like this on a regular basis and yet(wow, look at the stuff this guy got Well Said bubbles for on the second page of comments)...

Holy crap, he's gotta have a couple of accounts bubbling this one up. 9 comments in a row that are obvious trolling comments but got Well Said? And they say this is a Sony fanboy site...

Anyway, I'm curious to see what this means for hardware sales, both in the UK and elsewhere. I don't think Titanfall's influence helped the XB1 surpass the PS4 in worldwide sales for the past few weeks, but now I wonder if inFamous is gonna help retake that ground the Xbox made up.
Cuzzo63  +   179d ago
Omg really. We can name 100 things that makes ps4 the to go to system. I'm pro Sony but that does not make me hate xb1. I like TF. I think it's fun. But a single player campaign would make it that much better. Both systems basically have the same games with the exception of a few exclusives. Replay value? There is none without the internet... I think Infamous is still playable if the Internet bill doesn't get paid... anyway. U mad? Or really really mad...

Global sales for 2014 vs the daily/weekly sales being put up .... titanfall is quite a bit ahead and that is with much fewer consoles. MGS just like tomb raider does better on ps4 most likely because xb1 has plenty of new (and full) retail games to play. When the full game comes out it will be a it closer I would guess.

@Slevon

As much as I love GZ, you're right it isn't. GZ is mainly targeted at people who are already fans. I'd start with MGS3 or even MGS1 if you don't mind the dated graphics and mechanics. But MGS3 will do as it's chronologically the first in the series.

Basically it goes like this

MGS3 -> Peace Walker -> MGSV -> MGS1 -> MGS2 -> MGS4

I omitted MPO and MG1, MG2 because the latter two aren't considered completely canon anymore and MPO, while canon, is really more of a side story (with awful controls.)
GameSpawn  +   178d ago
@One_Eyed_Wizard

If you have a GameCube there was also Twin Snakes (a port of MGS1).

I've never owned the original Metal Gear Solid from PS1, but I did borrow and play a friend's copy long ago. I just never got around to getting the game myself, until Twin Snakes came out on the GameCube. I enjoyed the update to the graphics despite the few small changes since it was on a Nintendo console.

I have MGS2 and MGS3 on the PS2 and also MGS4 and the HD collection (MGS2+Substance, MGS3, MGS:PW) on the PS3.

I really enjoyed the mythos of the Metal Gear series and had the most fun with Peace Walker because of how the game was setup and also the sort of meta game in the form of Mother Base management.

MGS2 I liked up to the Very Hard difficulty and additional Substance content which made the game impossibly hard. I did get all the dog tags and complete every difficulty on the PS2, but I couldn't bare to put myself through that Fatman hell of a boss fight again on the PS3 HD remake (seriously Fatman on Very Hard is an ass - Vamp is just barely beatable, but still easier than Fatman).

As far as playing chronologically, it really isn't needed to be that strict. As long as you play games in groups.

[MGS3 -> Peace Walker -> MGSV] -> [MGS1 -> MGS2] -> MGS4

The two sets I partitioned off are interchangeable without ruining anything or spoiling any of the plot. Big Boss isn't mentioned very much in MGS1 and MGS2, so having the back story from MGS3, MGS:PW, and MGS5 won't add too much other then some lineage for the "three" Snakes and also some origin for Ocelot and the influence Big Boss had on him.

surprised about MGS tbh.

PS4 version selling more than PS3 version. I guess a big majority of MGS fans have moved onto next gen already. Or it could jsut be PS4 owners desperate for a new game.
360 and X1 is obvious why sales were lower. just most fans buy it on PS.

I'm impressed with the overall sales of MGSV though, but I am guessing all version would drop of the top10 next week.

"inFAMOUS: Second Tops UK Sales Charts"

Not surprising. It's one of the most anticipated games for the PS4.

"Metal Gear Solid V PS4 Sells Three Times as Much as Xbox One"

Not surprising either. PS4 install base, PS4 has the better version, most MGS fans own a Playstation and the crappie port Konami did with the X1 version justify those sales. The only surprise here is that the X1 version sold as much as it did. Konami deserved zero sales from the X1 version.

"The only surprise here is that the X1 version sold as much as it did. Konami deserved zero sales from the X1 version."

There is no sabotage Of xbone. It's just weaker hardware than PS4. That equals less performance lower resolution and less stable frame-rates on xbone than PS4.

Hideo Kojima is not holding back the xbone. No the xbones weak hardware is with it’s low end GPU and slow ram and bottlenecking Esram is the problem.

You know I played it on the X1 and beat in 80 min.

Though I'm sure I didn't have as much fun as the people who played it on PS4. I mean because we all know Polys, and resolution = fun.

Could someone please tell how great it was on PS4, I can try and live vicariously through you.

While ppl on this thread are catching all sorts of hell for saying it. But outside of Second Son, the PS4 has had few releases. Sorry, I'm not hating on the system, but its the truth.

The funny thing is: the XB1 has had fewer releases. It is an undeniable FACT that the PS4 has more games, so why do you Xbox boys keep perpetuating this BS?

The PS4 has had few releases? And how many has the XB1 had?

ThePope  +   179d ago
@Hicken

I would ask you this; How many AAA releases have come to the PS4 since the beginning of the year?

I'm not saying nothing has launched on the PS4, what I'm saying is that the big AAA experiences people buy $4-500 consoles for are not there. NOW with the launch of Infamous it has a big AAA release.

The X1 has launched Titanfall, PvZ:GW, and to a lesser degree Peggle.

Garden Warfare could have been a mess but was instead awesome. Titanfall is bringing far more to the table than most games since it has extreme replayabililty.

well more games will sell better on ps4 because of bigger install base, last gen it was xbox360 now it has shifted to ps4.

I was just talking about MGS series which in general people associate with sony's console. But like i said i am glad more gamers world wide will get to experience MGS5

IMO in a perfect world all 3rd party games are available on ps4,xbox one and wiiu. Where the system will differentiate are what the console makers offer as exclusive games from their 1st and 2nd party studios. But as we have seen with Titanfall that won't be the case
mcstorm  +   179d ago
I think this was to be expected as MSG is a bigger name on Sony's console and the PS4 has higher sales in the UK too as well as infamous and MGS being new games this week.

What will be interesting is who stats in the top 10 the longest. For me I think TitanFall will have the longer legs because its a FPS game. But that said good to see all 3 games doing well.

Looking forward to getting MSG but im getting through my other games before picking this up.

call it whatever you like demo, prologue, DLC. only thing we know is that this game content would probably not get released with phantom pain.

Is the game short? yes it is.

I am slightly dissapointed in the title for other reasons though.

- No codec conversations.
- No Boss Fight.
- Not really a proper ending to the game.
- Cutscenes from story mission has been shown in trailers, not much new content.

Well, back on topic. I guess your stealth disagrees were either your PS3 typo or you typing MGS Demo. Not really agrreing with why you got these stealth disagrees though.

I'll agree its a demo when you show me a single demo that gives that much content, I've paid 60 euro for full games that gave me less hours, content and replayability than that.

Only people calling tf the xb1 saviour are fanboys and fanboy journalists. I have never heard a gamer call it that, tf is selling great, whats the problem?

OMG, in your face M$.
Hey Kojima, you know where you put MGS6 exclusive now, a real full PS4 version not downgrade because of the poor hardware xone.
Fishy Fingers  +   179d ago
If anythings holding back the PS4 version wouldn't it be the last gen systems.

Also, even outselling by 3:1 why would you make it exclusive and lose 25% of your sales?

This is no place for common sense.
hkgamer  +   179d ago
you mean in your face Sony,
MS just stole 27% potential sales from a game that could have been a sony exclusive.
kayoss  +   179d ago
EA is probably kicking themself in that butt right now seeing how well software are selling on the PS4. If they released Titanfall on the PS4 and PS3, they would be rolling in money. They could have taken over COD throne.

I bet he got bored. Becasue we all know Xbox users dont know how to play any other type of games except for FPS.
Xbox Daily routine
8am-11am: play Titanfall
11:30am-12pm:
Take a break and go on internet to troll
12pm:
MOM! my friends and I would like some Totinos pizza rolls and a glass of milk.
1pm-4pm:
Play titanfall.

Wow!!! where are all the defenders of titanfall today i didn't see them having a problem crucifying me over a comment i made yesterday, for those who twisted my comment i do not hate titanfall, i don't want titanfall to be exactly like cod ,i don't hate xbox or microsoft either as i have an xb1 and an xb360 and i could go on but i won't. on topic list looks as expected bit surprised though about 2 and 3 but i guess people make their own decisions on what they like.
OiNioB  +   179d ago
Playing Titanfall,

only Reason there's so many defenders is because there's double the haters, you must have noticed this by now,

600+ negative(mostly troll)reviews on metacritic lol

Too busy playing PvZ and Titanfall. No care for MGS, its a rip off.

Well done to Infamous, however, I feel it may drop off massively.

I said I don't care for MGS. What an irrelevant and pointless post.
Applejack  +   179d ago
It's ironic because downplaying MGS by saying it is a rip off and saying Infamous will drop off massively because Titanfall did isn't very necessary or relevant is it?
jimbobbeers  +   179d ago
Course its relevant. Infamous will be below Titanfall next week for instance, come back to me then.

Well said Jim Bobbers.

I will never buy the MG game unless theres a serious price drop. Does anyone remember the 'half a game' stick Titanfall was getting? Now MGS sells loads with an hour long game.

Should I buy PVZ or Titanfall..... I'm a big BF fan and PVZ appeals to me more than Titanfall but there is the hype around it to consider.

I will of course get 100% disagrees but for me, PVZ looks like the most fun exclusive on either platform....am I right (genuine question)?

Titan who? Call of duty mastermind's game beating by a SP only game and a rip of demo, says it all really. It would have been interesting to see if at least 1 of the 2 games came out on the same day as TF if TF would have got any time at 1.

"It would have been interesting."

Only to overly attached fans,

because games can't simple all sell/do well in this problematic industry, that would be devastating
jay2  +   179d ago
No, to see if because the main guy Vince did a COD game if that info would be enough for a new series with a bit of competition to be top. Last week it had none so if it wasn't time they'd be some serous issues so I was expecting top and 3rd this week, what I'm saying is if MGS or Infamous or both came out a week early what it beat either or both the games then. would it have been 1.2 or 3 it it has something/s to fight against on day one, which it didn't.
Father__Merrin  +   179d ago

Visiblemarc  +   179d ago
If these numbers are indicative if a trend (I believe they are) then MS must have a very strong showing of exclusives at E3 or momentum will send them into a spiral, for sure.
mhunterjr  +   179d ago
There are a number of factors that would lead to this. Ps4 has a higher install base, core PS users are likely bigger MGS fans, the PS version is superior.

The biggest reason I didn't purchase it is because I don't feel it's worth the money. I'm content to play the other recent releases on xb1. I'm sure many xb1 users felt this way.
infectedaztec  +   179d ago
Nail on the head my friend.

If I'm buying a game today it will be Titanfall or PVZ. MGS never appealed to me BUT all the hype would have swayed my interest. I will not however support their shameless exploitation of MGS starved gamers.
T2  +   179d ago
wow another pvz comment... just laughable. am i seriously missing something or are you referring to the free mobile game plants vs. zombies? you would BUY a free mobile game but wouldn't pay for mgs?? LOL

personally i would wait for mgs gz to hit ps plus or get a sale on there, but at least I am reasonable...
mhunterjr  +   179d ago
@joecanada

PVZ: Garden Warfare is a 3rd person, class based, multiplayer shooter... A spin off of the mobile game. When you make ignorant comments like this one, you look silly.
Realplaya  +   179d ago
The question is will Second Son be top game next week?

Also will their first day sales be more than Mario Kart 8 when it drops?
True_Samurai  +   179d ago
And at the end Titanfall still sold more :-) plus second son JUST came out of course it's gonna be on top but after this week there will be many returns happening

just kidding Infamous SS does great as expected and Titanfall seems to drop off pretty big -73% but its normal its just the fanboys overhyping this shit like it will magically dissolve ps4 sales lead.

I have 6.4 million reasons and counting why you salty lmao of course TF sold more its on PC and Xbox :/ its gonna be soooooo funny when TF2 gets announced for PS4 and watch you Xbox fans jump and say Halo is Better I promise its gonna happen.

@TRD4L1fe
Hypocrites please TF was gonna be on PS4 before MS did what they did but did that stop Xbox fans from trying to hold TF over Sony fans head like it was a first party exclusive so if people like TF2 on PS4(especially if its bigger improvement than TF1) then what's so hypocritical about that its not like their saying they love TF1.

BakPAin  +   179d ago
I dont why the fanboys are making such commotion, Metal Gear fanbase is bigger than TF. Its been established since 80s Titanfall is new IP trying to find its way to the gamers! You guys act like this is some huge Triumph!!

I always assumed that both Infamous and Metal Gear would dk better do to fact that you also have single player mode and are already popular in their own right!

BTW- Infamous is one of the best looking games I have ever seen and cant wait to play it!
corvusmd  +   179d ago
This isn't surprising at all, XB1 owners are still playing TF as evidenced by the fact that it's still number 3 on the list, and like Phil Harrison said last week, TF gets played an average of 5 hours a day....XB1 owners don't have time to play MGS (I bought it, but have spent a total of MAYBE 20 minutes playing it). PS4 owners on the other hand were in the middle of a little games drought and looking for a game to play when these two came a long....these sales aren't really that surprising at all.
Bobets  +   179d ago
LOL!!!!!! ahahahahaahaha!!! them tears! I love it this is why I love this gen because its the xb1 fanboys turn to make all sorts of BS theory to explain why PS4 dominates their favorite console.

Lmao PS4 has more games than Xone fact and PS4 gamers get free games every month and we have free to play's and the better version all multiplatform games so that imaginery drought in your head needs to go away but hey whatever makes sleep at night and its funny you say PS4 has no games but all you guys talk about is Titanfall so apparently you only have one Game (•ิ_•ิ).

Lol the sales have fallen off for titanfall. Face it, titanfall was not the system seller that EA and M$ thought it would be.
As far as games go, xbone launch games were supposed to be on the 360, but Sony forced them M$ to move th to the xbone. Which explains why their 720-900p.

It's cool though go ahead and keep being mad. It's quite comical.
DeadManMMX  +   179d ago
I have both I bought the PS4 one because it just felt right. I was a bit tempted to try it out for that body snatchers mission I might still if the price drops. Many years ago I started my Metal Gear journey with MGS Solid on Ps1 and it felt weird playing the hd collection on my 360. Just like it would feel weird playing a online first person shooter of any kind on my ps3 or ps4.
NeloAnjelo  +   179d ago

mcarsehat  +   179d ago
more people won ps4's so how does stuff like this constitute as news every day?
Hicken  +   179d ago
More people don't "won" three times more PS4s, though.

And the big news is that the XB1's big seller, Titanfall, had a massive dropoff in sales AND was beaten by both inFamous and the "ripoff demo" called Ground Zeroes.
