Where did you get PS4 outsold Xbone 2 : 1?

Anyway, InFamous outsold Titanfall on Xbone is quite surprising.

Worldwide it's almost 2:1. Since vgchartz updates the sales to more accurate numbers and then they deflate PS4 by around 100,000 units the PS4 should approaching 8 mil while the X1 is still at 4.6 mil and that's possiibly just shipped numbers.

Right now on vgcharts it's 7.6 mil and 4.6 mil. Don't give the BS about their not being not reliable. It's close and ball park. But you just have to consider they deflate the PS4 sales by about 100k and then you can forcast for PS4 today. So they should be at 7.9 mil today currently.

7.9 mil divided by 4.6 is 1.71:1 ratio. So essentially it's about to 2:1 eventually. Regardless the it's same story. PS4 is outselling and widening the gap of the X1, and the X1 will not even be competitive this generation in terms of sales. I don't care if you say PS4 has X amount of countries. That will matter very little because once PS4 launches in China they will buy the PS4 since they indentify with Sony more.

A single player game like Infamous outselling Titanfall is truly surprising. But the meagre sales of the X1, a mere 115k put things in perspective.

GribbleGrunger  +   125d ago
So ... can we now please stop calling Sony fans delusional when they question the American numbers on VGC. I'll repeat, for the '6TH' month running, they've been right. I do not expect anyone to question the validity of their doubt this month, which, by the way, is once again being overtracked for the XB1 and undertracked for the PS4.

The difference is almost 2:1 with the XB1 being 112k and the PS4 being 'almost double' so my guess would be 210k - 220k

PS4 7 million sold to consumers
Xbox One 5 million sold to retailers. Count the fact that 1 million is sitting on shelves. This is number given off by MS themselves in Dec.

that is 7 vs 4 million.

Also, desperate fanboys need to drop the attach rate. Lol. they are near identical. PS4 gives out free games to every months and have F2P games.

Boody-Bandit  +   125d ago
I have a feeling Sony will announce they are at or closing in on 9 million sold at E3. Sold to consumer and not sitting on retail shelves. Meanwhile MS will keep spinning their numbers as they did this month with software sales while combining the 360 with the X1. Funny how MS aren't talking about their worst April hardware figures in a decade. I wonder why they dropped Kinect and lowered the price to $399.99. /s

All the while not a word of how they are doing this generation vs Sony in both hardware and software sales. Spin away MS, spin away.

I am a gamer but even I am shocked Infamous (an SP game) has outsold TitanFall (a multiplayer game geared for the xbox crowd) on the X1 for the month of April. Boy I bet EA is dying for a mulligan. It's odd we are not seeing articles talking about how poorly EA miscalculated backing the wrong horse entering this generation.

Than again is it odd or telling?

Microsoft seems to be happy with their software sales but are trying to put spin on xb 1 sales comparing it only the x360 sales in same period of time. With Sony selling twice as many consoles it however is surprising to see the xb1 doing so well. Sony should be selling twice as many games as xb1 if they have same game attachment rate.

Many of you seem to forget how Sony used to spin the numbers last generation or refused to comment at all. So it's not an uncommon practice. Nintendo does the same thing regarding Wii U sales.

It's so true.

I really hope people start calling this type of stuff out for what it is.

You can add Metacritic to the list of questionable sites as well. They are cherry picking reviews to give almost every single Xbox One multiplat a 1 to 2 point higher meta score even when the the game has higher frame rates and resolution on PS4.

Man, those are terrible numbers for XB1. No wonder MS announced the Stand alone bundle 2 days before NPD. I think initially they were going to save that announcement for E3 but with number like 115k, I think they have to announce it ASAP to gain some some excitement for the console. I expect the PS4 to continue to lead in sales every month this year unless Halo 5 make it in November this year.

iamnsuperman  +   125d ago
I think EA really needs to take more risks. EA has effectively given Titanfall a false start. They clearly didn't want to pump too much money into it and so looked for exclusivity dealings (Microsoft stepped up and funded a good portion of that game) and by doing this limited the impact Titanfall could have had.
OrangePowerz  +   125d ago
@DVS

I'm sure they expected originally that the Xbox would be the leading console. Many expected that MS have a much better start, until they revealed the console. I don't think that MS paid them enough money for the exclusivity of TF and PvZ to cover the lost sales.

@Bonkerz

Ubi does have a better track record with Sony given that games are mostly shown at the Sony conference and the extra DLC. Activision is currently playing both sides with CoD stuff for the Xbox and Destiny stuff for the PS.

I played Titanfall, it's extremely overrated. It's a decent and ok MP shooter that got a lot of hype because of who developed it.

That's a harsh statement. Have to wait until E3, because if Sony announces more attractive games, people might hold off on Xbone.

Halo only sells within people who already have an Xbox One. And you can't speculate based off of sales from last gen. So your sales argument is dismissed. How many Xbox supporters said "When has Infamous sold a lot?" And look at it now. First week sales were greaer than the combined sales of Infamous 1 and 2, during their first week, let alone the fact that PS3 had a way larger fanbase. And I think GT is a better-selling franchise than Halo. GT7 probably won't release this year, for you brought up the sales argument, and you brought me to it.

But, TF is a flagship title for Xbox 180 right from the start. Multiplat PS4/PC are not Sony exclusive. Sony can differentiate that real "exclusive" will be only on console. Unfortunately, the fact that Xbox One allows multiplats in the beginning means that MS already lose faith on Titalfall.

Its not a "bold" claim lol they wouldnt lie about it you douche, its a fact. I am sure MS can make you feel better by bringing up numbers about how many kinect voice commands happened this month or how many more zombies where killed in deadrising or maybe how many turns of a steering wheel have been made in forza.

jebabcock  +   125d ago
It is funny that people want to nitpick the minor flaws in a game like infamous SS but are quick to justify any downfall of titanfall. I'm sure the game is good but just like ryse and all the other amazing exclusives for x1, no one wants to buy them! Why? Please explain because I am struggling țo make sense of that... All i can come up with is that the games just aren't really that great... These games had about every possible advantage going for them. From a massive marketing campaign, high initial review scores, shoot ms even paid people to only say nice things about these games.. A good game sells itself yet worldwide knack has higher sales than any AAA exclusives ms has to offer except for titanfall...

I'm not saying this isn't a good thing...it is but I kind of wished inFAMOUS 2 sold as much as that was a much better, bigger and longer game in every way compared to Second Son.

I was at GAMESTOP the other day and the store manager told he moved the XBOX1 KIOSK (display model that you can play)right next to the checkout registers to help sell more XBOX1's . But 3 employees from that same store bought a PS4 and 2 of 3 of those employees first bought a XBOX1 and then traded it back for a PS4! But good news overall for the PS4 in USA!! INFAMOUS SS will be first game i buy when i get my PS4!
clonerz  +   125d ago
@Speak ive seen it countless times over the years at my local gamestops there are 2 within a quarter mile both the same pushing xbox. I think it might have had to do with all the extra things you need to buy when you purchase 360. a recharge kit , live gold, ms proprietary hard drive this made gamestop more money no doubt
DragonKnight  +   125d ago
They're doing that because no one wants an Xbox One and they lose money if the XB1s they have don't sell. It's not a bias towards MS, it's a bias towards money.
Chevalier  +   125d ago
Sorry man some stores are just shitty. I work at EB Games and mine is the top out of 9 in my city and we aren't like that at all. We were pretty high in North America for PS4 preorders ranking.

You know the funniest thing our head office company email was about Sunset Overdrive. The end says "...... that's right Xbone exclusive! Maybe this will convince people to buy Xbones"

What a joke they think Sunset Overdrive to sell consoles?! Wtf. After the reveal of big games we get excited people in preordering. Sunset Overdrive has had no people even mentioning it to us and it's quieter than crickets chirping. They somehow forgot how shitty Fuse and the last Ratchet game were.

If these claims are false, Sony can get sued by stockholders. So I don't think Sony would lie about this, but I do want some numbers too.

Sued? No my friend. Just no.

But you're right, we do need to return to the days of solid numbers. We used to get these numbers all the time during the glory days of the PS2. That was a fun time. Even the smallest games would have data.

Well, on a positive note, I'm very happy about the success of Infamous SS. It's a reason to own the PS4. I've been crowing about it ever since I saw it at E3. Sucker Punch deserves all the success.

Yes, Sony can be sued as long as these claims are from Sony themselves and if it is indeed a lie.

Where is the number?

Somebody lies.
Magaman  +   125d ago
I was just about to post this also, how come every NON-Sony and every general interest news site that has posted the numbers make NO MENTION of Second Son. So how exactly is it a top selling anything if it doesn't even make a top 10 list?
mkis007  +   125d ago
Notice how the titles in the list that are on next gen are all on multiple consoles?

This means that if you take the next gen versions of this game Second son outsold all other games. NPD is a combination of every version of that game...

This is why no one has mentioned it...because they understand how the npd includes all consoles.
JohnRKlein  +   125d ago
Simple Logic

Titanfall (Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC) > inFAMOUS: Second Son (PS4)

Titanfall (Xbox One) < inFAMOUS: Second Son (PS4)
Gamer-40  +   125d ago
Yes, I know, and I understand. Not too complex. But this is not correct. Why?

Best selling next-gen game say Sony PR, but the game is not in the first top ten sells.

This is not correct. Simple PR lies.

Best selling Sony game. That's the correct.

@Gamer-40: What you're not understanding is that Sony said that Infamous: SS is the best selling next gen game. This means that, removing PC and last gen consoles, Infamous SS has outsold all other next gen titles on next gen consoles.

Your list is a blanket list of the best selling titles across all platforms for April, Sony isn't talking about ALL platforms. They are talking about PS4, Wii U, and Xbox One ONLY.

So that means that I:SS outsold Titanfall on Xbox One, it outsold CoD on Wii U, Xbox One, and it's own console PS4, and so on and so on.

Do you get it now?

jnemesh  +   124d ago
Gamer-40, don't be ignorant. The top 10 games are all multiplatform. EVERY...SINGLE...ONE. Infamous: Second Son is only on ONE platform, the PS4. It was the best selling game for "Next Generation" consoles...yes, it outsold Titanfall ON THE XBOX ONE alone! Titanfall still outsold Infamous, as did the other 9 titles, because they are available on multiple platforms with a larger user base (Minecraft for the 360 being the lone exception..but the install base of the 360 dwarfs that of any of the next gen consoles).

Do you get it now?
HacSawJimThugin  +   125d ago

SpinalRemains138  +   125d ago

holdmyown83  +   125d ago
Such a shame since Titianfall is the better game. Infamous was cool but not nearly as good as the other two. IMO
strickers  +   125d ago
When was the last time you played the other 2?(3? Festival of Blood ). They don't stand up to SS controls. Especially 1. Cole was also a pretty 2D character but I have a feeling nuance may be lost on swathes of N4G members. ;-).
I love the Infamous games , and SS is a bit light on content, but what do you expect on early new gen?
So many people on here seem to comment with zero knowledge of the subjects of games, NPD, development. Like children.
SpinalRemains138  +   125d ago

S2Killinit  +   124d ago
I have to disagree with you. Infamous is the funner game of the two. Not that it was perfect, it felt like something was missing from an otherwise great game. But it sure was more fun than titanfall while it lasted.

MerRoids  +   125d ago
Hmm, I am impressed. However, for a single player game, on a larger install base, who is surprised? The thing is; TitanFxxx ( you fill in the clever wording )is a lot like COD which will continue to sell games long after the release date, obviously for the online gameplay.

Even with Infamous in the lead over TitanFxxx on Xbox One, it is EA and Microsoft who still take the crown.. TitanFxxx on three platforms is a win for both companies, even if the flagship console is on the bottom of the totem pole in terms of actual sales. I am not hating, or trolling, but these are valid points.

I can't understand what all the hooplah is about Titanfall. The user reviews on MetaCritic are saying it's very average whether you buy it on PC, 360 or XBone. Do you guys know how many Mechwarrior clones are out there? What's so special about Titanfall? Graphically, it doesn't even compare to Hawken and that game is free to play!

Why would anyone spend $60 on Titanfall much less try to use it as a measuring stick for other games?

Am I missing something?
Bhai  +   125d ago
Hey, its just a straw MS and xbots are hanging at from drowning...
It was the biggest part of the billion dollar investment which MS and EA are seeing drowning...
If xbone can't fight with PS4 technically and visually... why not try something with fake hype?

memots  +   124d ago
Exactly , I've been saying he exact same thing for a couple months , I do not understand how overhype this game as been, it seems very artificial and bought, just look at ign it was plastered everywhere over there. Getting 10/10 or 5/5 at a lot of site.

Everyone says the same thing it's very fun but for a few hours, has frame rate problem, is not even a next gen game ( was started as a 360 game) and yet here we are all talking like it's some big revolution in gaming.

Whatev me and my friend decided we will pick it up when it's about 25/30$ on origin since that should have been the right way to price this game.
