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.

Install base + power of the playstation brand + social media exposing which is the superior version. Not unexpected.

Shows 2 things:

1. ps4 owners desperate for any game on ps4 even paying for glorified demo.
2. second son not having a stay and play value like TF.

Haha, desperate troll.

Nice edit with that demo bit by the way, you just look sad.

razrye917d ago

Can say the same about xbox owners desperate for any game on the xbox.

jessupj917d ago (Edited 917d ago )

Your desperate, pathetic trolling shows 2 things:

1. Your butt is incredibly hurt.
2. Your tears are delicious.

I'm going to keep posting that link every time someone says 'teh PS4 haz no gamez' until you realise how utterly stupid you look.

I'm guessing it's going to be a while...

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

Those are some delicious tears

ger2396917d ago

Shows one thing: Xbox brand is synonymous with shooters. Without them there would be on Xbox.

kayoss916d ago

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?

Hicken916d ago

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.

Cuzzo63916d 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...

Has Metal gear ever been a big game on the XBOX platform? It's always had a bigger Playstation base.

abzdine917d ago

MGS2: substance has been released on xbox, but xbox platforms never got any exclusive MGS.
PSP is the one with most exclusive MGS games.

This ^ I missed out on playing all of the previous metal gears and I figure if I was to start, Ground Zero is not the best place for me.

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.

One_Eyed_Wizard916d ago

@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.)

GameSpawn916d ago (Edited 916d 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.

hkgamer917d ago

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.

mkis007917d ago

I was skeptical too until i started playing Ground zeroes on my ps4... a lot of cool things there. But now infamous will take up my time.

Orange Juice916d ago

"Or it could jsut be PS4 owners desperate for a new game."

Maybe if you wish this to yourself every night after mom puts you to bed then it will come true. For now though, you are lying and obviously bitter.

HeWhoWalks916d ago (Edited 916d ago )

The notion that PS4 fans are "desperate" for games exposes a serious lack of knowledge in this field. In fact, didn't we hear the same nonsense towards the PS3? How did that turn out?

Snookies12916d ago (Edited 916d ago )

@HeWhoWalks - It's said about the Vita as well, that it has no games. I find that statement quite hilarious. I don't own a PS4, but even I can see it has a rather good selection of games already. Not to mention its library is only going to grow as time goes on.

One_Eyed_Wizard916d ago

I'm glad to see MGSV doing well despite all the bad publicity and misinformation surrounding it. I can't speak for the rest of the hardcore MGS fanbase but I did move onto nextgen rather fast. Other fans I know are waiting to get their PS4 before buying GZ.

It definitely wasn't desperation anyway ;p

lelo917d ago (Edited 917d ago )

"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.

THamm916d ago

Xbox fans were the ones calling it a demo, soon enough just like Wii fans, they'll only buy first party. Titanfall might as well been first party since it sold out, since MS didn't have anything ready. Sad but this is the way I see it's heading

"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.

ThePope916d ago

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.

Hicken916d ago

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?

You say you're not hating, but every time you make a comment like this, that's exactly what you're doing. What you're saying isn't at all the truth. It's bull.

ThePope916d ago (Edited 916d 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.

Christopher916d ago

@ThePope: Wow, that's some very specific requirement for games on PS4 you ask for.

" How many AAA releases have come to the PS4 since the beginning of the year? "

Well, it looks like the same number as XBO? Thief + one exclusive (Titanfall on XBO and Second Son on PS4).

So, what was the point of that question?

Snookies12916d ago

@ThePope - Plants vs. Zombies is a "AAA" game?

djplonker916d ago (Edited 916d ago )

@Thepope

neither of them are console exclusives and are available on 360 and pc...

-.-

Clunkyd916d ago

@ThePope

He's just mad because his precious TitanFall game isn't getting any attention anymore. It's sad because the game really isn't exclusive to Xbone.

Funny, How an incomplete game is AAA

One_Eyed_Wizard916d ago

It's all a matter of taste. I'd rather play inFamous than Titanfall. Besides, I really see absolutely no game that interest me on X1 except for the multiplatforms (which all run better on PS4 anyway.)

Magicite916d ago

If this trend continues, there is a high probability, that some multiplatform games might become Playstation exclusives (like in PS2 times).

Back-to-Back916d ago

The real crime here is a shitty Final Fantasy game outselling dark Souls 2. Come on UK brothers buy DKS2.

ocelot07916d ago

Believe me I would but am sitting here like a idiot waiting for the PC version.

djplonker916d ago (Edited 916d ago )

I bought both ff13-3 and dark souls 2!

Also ff10 hd and mgsv(ps4)

I don't have the time to play them though XD

showtimefolks916d ago

the advertisement firm sony chose for ps4 use to be with MS/Epic games for gears of war and Goggle so now its showing how great they are working on ps4

MGS is a series that will always sell a lot better on PlayStation consoles, but i am glad more people will get to play it now.

Infamous 2nd son well its an excellent game so very well deserved

sony is on a huge roll, i believe this E3 will be huge and both sony and MS have to show up in a big way. MS have already said they E3 conference will be about games(will wait to see it before i believe it)

sony needs to show some firepower to really deliver a huge knockout punch

mmc-007916d ago

why is CoD:ghost & battlefield 4 selling better on the PS4. also because is sells better on the Playstation brand?

showtimefolks916d ago

mmc-007

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

mcstorm917d 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.

Jdoki917d ago

And TF is multiplat, and will get a huge bump in sales once the 360 version releases (if it ever releases)

hkgamer917d ago

Probably the safer option to buy Ground Zeroes second hand when most people will be trading it in soon.

beebap916d ago

Any hardcore fan of metal gear will not be trading in.It a game that you can back to. Try out different ways also if you bought the first batch of the game you will get special content in phantom pain.

Kribwalker916d ago

I'm gonna rent it this weekend. No point in paying $35 in canada when I can rent it for $6 and at the place I go to I get a second game for free if I want

One_Eyed_Wizard916d ago (Edited 916d ago )

Lol no way I'm trading it in. Ever.

@Kribwalker

That's not a bad idea either. I also live in Canada but last I checked the prices were the same as the US on the PS Store.

mcstorm917d ago (Edited 917d ago )

@Jdoki I agree that it will have a bump when the 360 version comes out but not out for a few weeks yet plus MSG is Multi Plat.

@hkgamer I agree I think there will be a lot of trade ins of the game soon but ill still grab a new copy don't tend to buy pre owned as I like to support the developers.

O and on the 18 disagrees what's that about?
