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.

razrye1245d ago

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

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

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

kayoss1244d 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?

Hicken1244d 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.

Cuzzo631244d 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.

abzdine1244d 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.

Slevon1244d ago

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.

nicksetzer11244d ago (Edited 1244d ago )
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_Wizard1244d ago


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.)

GameSpawn1244d ago (Edited 1244d ago )


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.

hkgamer1244d 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.

mkis0071244d 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.

"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.

HeWhoWalks1244d ago (Edited 1244d 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?

Snookies121244d ago (Edited 1244d 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_Wizard1244d 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

a game which is just new and got relased 2 days back and is a sequel of an amzing series ,a game which is open world and may appeal to bigger form of audience ,my reasons looks more viable than your,sorry buddy but your reasons are little fanboyish ,but "better social features"i dont get it, i have heard twitch is on both consoles right?,oh i forged i'am having it on both ps4 and xbox one,but hum can any body tell me what is better on my ps4?,i must check soon never noticed it before,any body here?.

lelo1244d ago (Edited 1244d 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.

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

Evilsnuggle1244d ago (Edited 1244d ago )

Here we go again. @@ eye rolling


"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.

Your a xbone fanBoy stealth Troll

ThePope1244d 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.
