Infamous second son, might secretly be the most hyped game as of right now.

With the recent TV spot amassing to over 3million views, which may not sound much, but that is more then any titanfall video has ever received.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhtU_sjQzjM.

Even a google search for infamous second son will have double the results as titanfall.

So with infamous ahead in youtube and google trends, where exactly is titanfall winning? as of right now, nothing. Even the Infamous Second Son PS4 bundle is outselling the Titanfall XB1 bundle, despite it costing more.

TitanFall won't sell more than Infamous, that's a given.

As for hype TitanFall had less than Infamous.

Titanfall will sell more, as it's on 3 platforms, but Infamous on PS4 should outsell Titanfall on XB1 quite easily.

Do you have any other source that could prove me wrong? i'm talking about hype here, and i have given valid sources to that.

Who hyped Call of Duty these days? I think that even casuals are tired of it. Of course infamous gets more hype, it looks next gen and is open world also the first true quality ps4 exclusive while the first X1 exclusive is wut? Halo 5 set for 2015? yay.

#9 Posted by XboxDone74 (2047 posts) -

Yep. Lems and herms can deny and cry, but Infamous is the most hyped. Youtube vieww outnumber titancod, as well as infamous bundles outselling titanfall bundles at gamestop.

@Sweenix: on the Xbox One respectively

On the contrary, a more valid source would be average users between videos. Total users of a single video amounts to lackluster evidence. Also, you need to prove your Google search point, along with providing the exact search options that you utilize.

When is it up to me to prove your argument?

The contents of the google search doesn't even have to matter, because a search for Infamous second son has over 35m results, while titanfall has around 17m votes, so even if you take away the dead weight, the lead is still far to much, and the Infamous bundle is outselling the Titanfall bundle.

here are the top rated video's, and this doesn't include the video that exceeded 3m.

A quick glance showed that you are missing trailers for both. Instead of a cursory glance, provide a well reasoned argument. I undermined yours in a second.

Now, provide a full list of distinctive trailers, and average viewers for both... Second, provide the Google search options that you utilized.

How could anyone even argue against these facts?

Okay, but provide the figures. I'm simply asking you to flesh out your argument... Which is reasonable. If you provide a poorly reasoned argument, then anyone with half a brain would ask for evidence.

What are you talking about, i have sales on my side, i have the internet on my side, you should be the one proving to me otherwise, because you don't even have any evidence to say otherwise.

And until you do. Your point is pretty much m00t.

#22 Edited by lundy86_4 (43540 posts) -

I feel I need to help... You must provide coverage across the majority of sources, in order to prove "hype." You must present that evidence, with a reasoned explanation. Youtube viewer count is not the single indicator of hype... You are categorizing your own evidence to serve your point.

But, i don't need to go to that extent, because the little proof i have is enough, i mean. The only evidence you could show that would prove otherwise, is amazon rankings. Which tends to fluctuate and it's rarely updated.

I feel that you don't understand the process. You made the argument, thus you must prove it. The argument was shown to be incorrect, as it did not average all Youtube views, as not all videos were shown. Furthermore, you predicated your argument upon the fact that Youtube represents the average, which you didn't prove.

Now, you have still not provided the search parameters for your Google search.

Can we just stop this argument, whilst you actually provide the evidence you need?

Xbox fanboys? I feel the media is just hyping this game way more than inFamous. Also Xbox people also seem to be praising this game so much

It isn't, which is the whole point. You need to prove that it is sufficient, thus you need to provide a sufficient data count. For example, the number of videos an dviews, from which you can take the average.

I needn't show anything, because you aren't smart enough to make your own argument.

Furthermore, I didn't provide the Amazon rankings as evidence, which shows your lack of ability to track a basic conversation. Why would I trust you with any sort of analysis? Holy shit, sit down.

#27 Edited by EnergyAbsorber (4898 posts) -

I cant speak for everywhere, but obviously here in system wars titan fall is the current most hyped game.

#28 Posted by GrenadeLauncher (5143 posts) -

#29 Edited by jeffmonster (511 posts) -

Secret hype? O my. Titanfall destroys InFamous every which way from Sunday. InFamous 2 should have been the end of this franchise. A good franchise mind you.......but it's spent. Done. Finished.

True. But considering lems tell me that TF is so so awesome much better than Shitfamous it's hardly a good look for them when Seattle's Finest edge them out.

#32 Posted by Solid_Max13 (3548 posts) -

@jeffmonster: they're not the same game and or genre, and many people did like infamous the second rubbed many the wrong way and I can see how story wise but aside from that they can still take the franchise places and on a new platform we can see if it will be good or not, either it may good or bad but we have to wait and see is all.

Titan fall has been overly hyped a couple months shy of a year (starting at e3 with 100+ awards lol). Infamous probably overly hyped last 3 or 4 months tops? So I would respectfully disagree sir... (especially with people hyping titanfall to change the game of fps, LOL yea right)

Considering SW doesn't equate to the rest of the world and neither does that site (not to mention that gamefaqs obviously isn't GS), and an internet poll isn't any real test of quality, I'm failing to see your point.

I'm getting both. But I don't think Infamous will beat Titanfall. Not even Infamous vs Xbox One Titanfall. I know you are a huge Xbox hater so your response is expected. Care to make a wager?

#38 Posted by mystic_knight (13801 posts) -

Word on the street and in shops generally favour Titanfall. But well we shall see week 1 sales figures of both games.

Honestly hype rage is stupid, it creates expectations for people, which at pre launch is unwarranted..

Many games that looked great pre launch failed to live up to the fans expectations, e.g Lightning returns, Thief, Castlevania: LOS2.

Anyone using a hype to gauge a game's credibility is just silly.

#39 Edited by tyloss (829 posts) -

@GoldenElementXL: let's wager our accounts, seriously.

If TitanFall's first month sales (or week) are greater than Infamous Second Son's* then my account will be banned for 3 months and vice versa.

*Sales only applicable to the Xbox One and will be determined by the following months NPD.

I see vice-king cow and chief weeaboo is at work.

By the way the way I see it, Infamous might have strong opening but then it'll take a nosedive rather quickly. Titanfall will have tremendous longevity, though.

#42 Posted by I_can_haz (6551 posts) -

Titanfall's hype is fake media hype/SW hype. I don't hear anyone talking about in real life, all I hear is people talking about PS4s sold out everywhere and how they want one. COD and BF still dominate most FPS gamers' conversations (COD especially). Titanfall will sell good but it won't be a game changer, COD will still remain more popular and I won't be surprised if Infamous outsells it due to PS4 being the more popular console this gen.

So every gaming site loving Titanfall is fake but Infamous being the real deal is legit? The Titanfall beta pretty much locked up huge sales numbers between the PC and Xbox One users. Infamous looks great but nobody has touched the game outside of trade shows. I don't know how you think the Infamous hype is bigger than the Titanfall hype. Oh wait yes I do. Mooooooooooooo

Cry some more if you want. It is what it is. I was in the beta and while I enjoyed it, it didn't convince me to spend $60 on it due to the fact that it's an MP only game. I'm guessing most gamers are like me in this regard, it's a good game but it isn't good enough to make everyone abandon everything and drop money on Xbones. Hence the reason why Infamous bundle is outselling the Titanfall bundle. Titanfall is good but not good enough to make most people overlook the fail that is the Xbone. The fake media hype surrounding the game will ensure it sells well but it won't save the Xbone or give it an edge over the PS4.

Im warning lems right now, titanfall is not going to live up to hype commercially or critically and infamous will commercially perform alot better than most are expecting. Im seeing more infamous ads than titanfall now which is abit weird but shows sony are going to market this game. Dont be suprised if infamous sales are close to titanfall

I'm personally more hyped for Infamous, but I seem to be the minority around here, at least.

Personally, I don't care: I liked the Titanfall beta on PC and will (later) be getting also the full game for this platform. Same for InFamous SS: I might likely rent the game before purchasing it (waiting for a price drop) but in any case: no need for Xbox One (hype) in all this...

#48 Posted by uninspiredcup (8993 posts) -

We all know Titanfall is manufactured media hype in an attempt to save the catastrophe that is the XboxOne.

#49 Posted by Salt_The_Fries (9019 posts) -

I'm appalled by this puritan thinking about why would people hype the X1 version of Titanfall - we've already witnessed situations when huge PC franchises that

were about to have their first console installment ended up outselling their PC counterparts by a huge margin.

The third installment of a franchise is more anticipated than a new ip. Is this supposed to be unexpected?

Look at this list. It's dominated by sequels. I'm not familiar with all these titles but it seems like Titanfall is the only new ip here. For a new ip to be at 9% is quite amazing.

Titanfall could very likely outsell all those games on Xbone alone. Reviews and word of mouth is what will drive sales.
