Easily one of the best games available this gen, and that's an understatement. I'd like to say a thank you to the 1 million true gamers that bought this title.

wxer4080d ago (Edited 4080d ago )

good for a new IP in 4 months or so
this game was never hyped
im sure the next one would do better just like uncharted

gaffyh4080d ago

Imagine inFAMOUS + Uncharted 2 graphics = *drools*

3XP4080d ago

Weren't those vgchartz numbers...Oh, so they are a good source this week? /sarcasm

Dread4080d ago

funny how all u sony fans dont say anything about the fact that these are vchartz numbers...
double standard anyone?

on point

i agree the game deserves this and more..hope they make a sequel

peace

Greywulf4080d ago

I still find VGchartz suspect due to all t heir past #'s that were all just clearly made up...

I hear they are getting better.. but thats like Hitler taking courtesy lessons, theres still.. something off..

SuperStrokey11234080d ago

One of the best games this gen for sure, ever one with a ps3 should check it out. Well deserved that they got this high of sales. SHould ensure a sequel.

Chubear4080d ago

Don't have to imagine cause it's going to be just that. :) Just look at UC1 to UC2 and we have a very clear understanding of what Inf1 to Inf2 will look like... now think what KZ3 will look like \O/ ! lol

kikicub4080d ago

Well, I think not. To those complaining that in this case "the numbers are legit" this only means that inFAMOUS passed the 1 million mark a while ago....

VGChartz is still crap.

Ghostsmoker4080d ago (Edited 4080d ago )

very underrated at all ... I had a real good time playing through the game.

Chubear4080d ago

No, VGC is not a legit accurate source at all especially when it comes to PS3 sales figures. Infamous had already surpassed the 1mill mark a while ago.

RememberThe3574080d ago (Edited 4080d ago )

VGchartz has never said that they give completely accurate numbers. So, saying that their numbers are estimates is like trying to knock Coca-cola by saying they make soda.

These numbers are estimates. What they show is that Infamous has sold AROUND 1 million units, not EXACTLY 1 million units.

raztad4080d ago

Anything close to 1 m means inFAMOUS II warranted.

inFAMOUS came out of nowhere with few to NONE hype and game proved to be awesome. 100x more fun than GTA4. Highly recomended if you are into sandbox games.

blogz4fanboyzz4080d ago

leave it out. infamous was good, but it was nothing special. infact, it was nothing more than an open world beat-em up with a few tacked on samey missions. and to call this a sandbox game is stretching it more than just a bit....ffs the game didn't even have a driving mechanic!!

but whats even more interesting is the fact that every sony fanboy claims gta and saints row were gimped by DVD9, yet both slaughter the ps3 and blu-ray exclusive infamous in terms of size, mission variety, REAL SANDBOX game play, graphics and pretty much everything else.

strange that.

Anon19744080d ago

And quite the feat. Only about 10% of games ever reach the one million mark.

raztad4080d ago (Edited 4080d ago )

@bloz

Why would a superhero need a car? thats funny. I didnt know driving a car is what defines a sandbox game.

For me at least, inFAMOUS destroy GTA4 in terms of overall fun. I couldnt finish boredom 4 but inFAMOUS was beaten twice. In fact this is the only game I have ever replayed.

Good superhero story, fun combat mechanic, fun platforming, main story missions were all diverse and exciting. inFAMOUS made me gain back some lost faith in open box games after the GTA4 fiasco (GTA4 was my first PS3 game)

Off topic: I wonder how Red Faction:Guerrilla did. I havent played it, but I'll do in proper time.

pixelsword4080d ago

...like Patcher is; or some of these sites that may grace N4G every once in a while.

DaTruth4079d ago (Edited 4079d ago )

Clearly you haven't played the game. And how stupid would an open world Superman game be where he drives a car to crimes! Grasp at straws much???

Infamous makes GTA4 look like a PS2 game and you would know that if you had played it!

This is great news, it means Infamous sold 1.5 million! Given the VGChartz usual PS3 undertrack!

snp4079d ago (Edited 4079d ago )

No hypocricy here. VGChartz is unreliable - whether it's this, or there nonsense claims of ODST 2 million first day US etc.

Doesn't mean, however, this game has or hasn't sold 1 million - though given their (VGC's) European numbers have been broadly shown up as understating the PS3 (eg. system sales coming up a couple of million short versus overall, Europe being the obvious unchecked underestimate), European third party financials showing slants to PS3 profits which suggest bigger sales differentials than VGChartz shows etc (a couple of other reasons to be suspicious), i think there's probably a pretty good chance it's been above 1 million for a while.

Hell, isn't it a 'platinum series' release now in Europe? Unless i'm mistaken aren't those only are for games which sold one million plus?

Only just?

Why are PS3 owners not supporting their best games? I mean this game is one of the best all year... Its a sad generation... Sales are going to the wrong games... This game deserves a lot more...

BadboyCivic3604080d ago (Edited 4080d ago )

I got this game over prototype and i think all PS3 owners should get it...but the sad truth is most of them dont buy games, they just come on here,troll all day N nite and leave disagrees for anybody who dont see things there way...

i wont call no names but everybody know them by now...

BlackTar1874080d ago (Edited 4080d ago )

don't sound like a 10yr old who is grounded lol.

You think there are more then a million on this site?

Whats wrong with a million sold? Please explain only this generation could a game hit a million and be pushed around like ohh should have sold more. Well yea alot of things should sell more then there mainstream copy thats not a ps fans fault or the ps gamers fault and its not specific to them either.

Wow maybe a little research or drawing from the good old memory bank would have keot you from spewwing such drivel

I agree gametime what a sad generation this time around with people like you who come into this thread to compliment and put down all in one both of you.

ceedubya94080d ago

1 million is a great number. And Sony and the developers should be proud.

The thing is, there are Sony loyalist that hype up every PS3 exclusive game to the high heavens as being God's gift to gaming. If the rest of the gaming world felt like they do, then the game would have hit 1 million a long time ago.

Regardless, it was a great start for a new franchise.

ultimolu4080d ago (Edited 4080d ago )

Is there some standard all PS3 games must reach or something? What the hell is wrong with a million? It's a new IP-that's good for a new IP.

Good grief.

And this is VG Chartz. When have they ever been right?

baum4080d ago

Why are you such a crybaby?

WildArmed4080d ago

lol only if the trolls put that much effort into something productive

RememberThe3574080d ago

Did you just say most gamer come on to N4G. I think this site would be a bit more popular if every gamer came here.

And of course their going to disagree with people who don't see things their way, because they disagree...

Oh well

Who Cares about sales

1 million is OK

BadboyCivic3604080d ago

the people that bought and supported it cares

m-s-8-24080d ago

I bought it and couldn't give less of a sh!t.

BlackTar1874080d ago

im in this thread to say congrats because the dev talent deserves it not to be like OMFG sales sales sales.

SuperStrokey11234080d ago

I care about sales when it will encourage a sequel to my fav games being made. No chance of a game getting another if the first sells like poo and losses money now is there?

LMFAO

gaffyh4080d ago

What's really sad is that "Xbot" actually makes sense, because it sounds like Xbox. Sony Droid is the dumbest thing ever, because it has nothing to do with anything. In fact, I'd PlaySlave is actually a better put down.

Whatever, be a gamer not a hater.

baum4080d ago

You wanna know why Xbox fanboys are retards? They are the same morons that would support a populist politician because "everyone is doing it". They are the idiots that would jump of a building because "everyone does". They fall for the following kind of propaganda:

"Bandwagon:"

"Bandwagon is one of the most common techniques in both wartime and peacetime and plays an important part in modern advertising. Bandwagon is also one of the seven main propaganda techniques identified by the Institute for Propaganda Analysis in 1938. Bandwagon is an appeal to the subject to follow the crowd, to join in because others are doing so as well. Bandwagon propaganda is, essentially, trying to convince the subject that one side is the winning side, because more people have joined it. The subject is meant to believe that since so many people have joined, that victory is inevitable and defeat impossible. Since the average person always wants to be on the winning side, he or she is compelled to join in. However, in modern propaganda, bandwagon has taken a new twist. The subject is to be convinced by the propaganda that since everyone else is doing it, they will be left out if they do not. This is, effectively, the opposite of the other type of bandwagon, but usually provokes the same results. Subjects of bandwagon are compelled to join in because everyone else is doing so as well. "

cmacdonald4080d ago
