Great for infamous: SS (thanks The_Infected :-)) and PS4!

Uncharted sold 695,304 according to VGchartz but how did Insiderp came up with the 1 million sold at launch total from their page. Hmmm?

They said they sold 1 million through March 28
No_Limit  +   609d ago
They also said previously that the game has 1 million preorder sold due to their contact with SCE.
Courtesy of our close amigo at SCE, as of March 18,2014, the game has 1 million pre-orders globally. This is the first time pre-orders for any next-gen game has reached a million before release.

Like for real do you really think SCE will give an unknown site that was created a few months ago in December the numbers and no other gaming outlets? I let you put 2 and 2 together.

Honestly who knows... the internet is a very interesting place with lots of claims, insiders, predictions, misunderstandings, and even an Xbox One that is secretly hiding 25 stacked GPUs.

Entertain yourself with the rumors, but only take the official press releases seriously.

VGChartz doesn't take digital into account. At least that's what I have heard.

"according to VGchartz"

they have the same sources as Insiderp ..NON!


they don't take real sales data into account, publishers and retail don't give them information, they just do polls and apply them to consoles in the market and then they get their magic numbers.

I think you mean "infamous" and not "Uncharted"

TitanFall is over 1.1m in week 2 according to the chart, really moving well (it was over 900k in week 1).

These are retail of course and don't include digital sales

@ Eonjay, It would be huge mistake to ue the first 2 days of a games sales compared to 1 week or 2 worth of sales. All games drop by a large degree, PSU is reporting 67% drop for Infamous (PSU being reputable, Insidedep being a sad hate site). All that being said, games like TF will spike again come Sep when MS triples the number of countries it sell in.

@cozemel, are you having trouble reading the chart provided in the post? It CLEARLY shows TF at 1.1m+

Here's the PSU article for your "delusions"

@Scott, something would be very wromg if a game sold more in 13 countries than in 57.

@Scott #2, Last gen NA and Uk represented 53m 360 sales, say the other 9 countries take it to 60m, that leaves 1/3 more sales

@ Chris..., depends on the attach rate, after digital sales it could be 50%, so the answer to your question would be 800,000 based on last gen

TF is doing well, but Infamous SS selling 695,304k in 2 days(it was released March 21st and this is from the week ending March 22nd) is unbelievable. I honestly would not have expected a singleplayer game to do this well.

Take all of these numbers with a grain of salt though, it is VGChartz after all.

Eonjay  +   609d ago
There are a few ways to look at it.

1. You have to be correct because at over a million units it has an attach rate of over 25% - even if some Xbox Ones are literally attached in the box :)
2. In comparison to Infamous:SS's two day/first week total, it is under-performing because it only sold 225k/day compared to SS's 350k/day.
3. This game is online only so I wouldn't be surprised if it has a ton of digital downloads.
georgeenoob  +   609d ago
Over 1 million copies of TF sold with 4 million X1's. Now THAT is impressive. Infamous selling around 1 million with 7 million PS4s is good too, but not as impressive.

Look at how well Killzone SF sold and it had an even smaller install base.

shooters sell better, it's just how it goes. And third party always sells better on the PS4 worldwide regardless of the game since day 1.

I like that sales matter again for certain people though.

And how many more copies of TF MICROsOFT would have sold in Japan?

scott182  +   609d ago

"something would be very wromg if a game sold more in 13 countries than in 57."

Not if those 13 territories make up basically the entire bulk sales for games and systems for MS. The other territories were almost non existent for MS's overall sales figures last gen, could that be why they haven't considered them priority?

But even individual territories PS4 has better 3rd party sales... Look at MGS and Tomb Raider in the US. They look better and sell better on PS4.

@georgeenoob: I want you to relax for a moment. Sit back and digest what you've just written ... Is that long enough? Now contemplate on how quickly you accept 7 million PS4s sold when it suits your argument. Do you see what I mean? Surely you do. You've just learned your first lessen in honesty, and I'm sure you'll now completely accept the X1 is 3 million behind without question ...

Some of us are stealth trolls and use backhanded language When talking of Sony.

Titanfall is selling I don't think it will sell 1 million xbone consoles. Michael Pachter said 500,000 that sounds about right to me.
Why do the xbone fanBoys keep talking about 13 countries vs 57 countries. First off The xbone is being out sold by PS4 in each of the 13 countries That's the xbone fanBoys Are focused on. Number 2 Microsoft is not in 57 because there is a lack of demand in those countries for xbone. Microsoft has 900000 consoles sitting on selves in the USA and U.K. that is enough to supply the 57 countries. The PS4 is in limited supply but they are in 57 countries. The xbone is in full supply and is being discount buy $50-70 . But Microsoft can't supply 57 countries but xbone is over stocked and being discount in the USA and U.K
. I have a bridge to sell You xbone fanBoys Are so delusional it's scary.

Hideo Kojima didn't gimp the xbone version of MGS5: Ground Zeroes . No the xbone hardware is gimped already . The xbone is weak hardware with Esram and a entry level Three year old GPU and slow ram.

Vgchartz is just guessing wait four hey official announcement from SONY , Microsoft or NPD

Well, the fact is Playstation does much better in the non major territories than Xbox has by far. Plus Sony is starting to take back the major territories as well. I just don't see it making a difference for MS to release in other territories. I guess we will find out.

So you're basically saying that Titanfall has seen a 90% decrease in sales in it's second week. WOW. That's NOT a good thing dude. It basically says most of it's sales are from die hard fanboys.

Compare that to Infamous' 67% decrease LOL

1. inFAMOUS: Second Son (PS4) Sony Computer Entertainment, Action 695,304
2. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (PS4) Konami Digital Entertainment, Action 433,118
3. Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster (PS3) Square Enix, Role Playing 331,803
4. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (PS3)
Konami Digital Entertainment, Action
5. Titanfall (XOne) Electronic Arts, Shooter 208,439

For infamous, thats 347k/day for being onsale for only two days.
Also when all SKU's for Metal Gear are added together, it actually outsold Infamous according to this site.

I would hope that any reasonably hyped game launched across 4 platforms with a combined install base of over 170 million, would outsell a game released only on a brand new platform with an install base of just over 6 million.

You know I wish they reported digital sales. I have only bought a few games digitally (Titanfall and NBA 2K14) but the other day I had to put a disc in, and it was terrible. I would much rather just Say "Xbox, go to Game X". This has really changed my opinion on digitally purchased games.

I have a feeling all these games had a large digital presence.

Hicken  +   609d ago
Keep in mind- though I know you'd rather not- that Titanfall's success is due to being heavily bundled and discounted.

The number alone is impressive, but the reasons for that number take some of the luster away.

Avernus  +   609d ago
Titanfall is an online FPS, the #1 genre on consoles. One would hope it sold a bunch with the amount of hype it got. But you can't take away the success of inFamous especially that it's a SP only game and not a FPS.

Big numbers from SONY. I didn't expect to see 3.7 million pieces of software sold this week to Xbox 1.4 million. Even the Vita that everyone says should be taken out to the woodshed sold almost as much as the XBone.

Not good that MGSV is selling that much. This is not a good way to send out a message that paying 30 for a demo will not be tolerated by gamers. But now we might see more of this in the future
Bathyj  +   609d ago
Maybe the message being sent was that people didnt want to wait a year and a half to play some Metal Gear Solid.

No ones being duped, people arent idiots, we all know how long the game is and how much it costs. Its up to individuals to decide whether its personally worth it for them. It seems for nearly 3 quarters of a million gamers it was.

I understand your point, you dont want to set a precedent and send the industry in a dangerous direction, but if you really wanted to protect it, we'd all stop buying FPS's for multiplayer and add on map packs.

Im going choose to be hopeful over cynical and hope that Ground Zeros success encourages Kojima to make make the most epic game he can, cos thats what he always does anyway.

DarXyde  +   609d ago
Well, that's interesting: Despite the small PS4 userbase (relative to PS3), Ground Zeroes on PS4 outsold it. I really expected the PS3 version to sell better given the much larger install base. Could just be that everyone Either way, Konami made out like a bandit with Ground Zeroes considering they very likely weren't out to sell millions on a prologue.

The XBOX One version didn't do bad at all, actually. Assuming word of Ground Zeroes' offerings hit most console owners, the sales of an XBOX One version will likely do better when the Phantom Pain drops. Not as well as PS4 or PS3, but I still expect good numbers.
