Good on Infamous! Though gaf numbers point to a very hefty drop from ~80k to ~25k (still that's more than 100k in just 2 weeks, in a single region). The difference between MGS and Infamous this week is around 3k versus the 15k from last week. No idea on Titanfall numbers but they are obviously below that (for this week I mean).

Also what I find extremely amusing is that the Fifa 14 version that is selling the most (PS4) is the one that was never bundled with the console itself XD Also if anyone is wondering why it's still selling this well, the Premier League in the UK is having one of it's most enjoyable title races in the last years (4 contenders, though realistically only 3 will be in the final "sprint"). So it's basically free advertisement for the game :P

Edit:

According to NeoGaf these are the numbers for these 3 games (math seems roughly correct, though don't take these as definitive numbers just yet)

From Foshy:

Probably beaten to hell and back but here are my calcs

Infamous first week is x, MGS first week is y

y=x-15000

(33x/100)=(36y/100)+3000

insert y in x

(33x/100)=(36(x-15000)/100)+3000 | *100

33x=36x-540000+300000

33x=36x-240000

3x=240000

Infamous Week 1 = 80000

MGS Week 1 = 65000

Infamous Week 2 = 26400

MGS Week 2 = 23400

Titanfall Week 3 = 23300

Titanfall Week 2 = 40172 (58x/100=23300)

Titanfall Week 1 = 148786 (27x/100=40172)

-----

Titanfall LTD (3 weeks) = 212258

Infamous LTD (2 weeks)= 106400

MGS LTD (2 weeks) = 88400

-------

Once again, not saying these are correct as they are all entirely based on assumptions (regardless of the math being correct or not). So take these as an added argument but not necessarily factual.

Seems reasonable and shows that 2 straight #1s don't mean as much as what kind of sales figures were associated with particular week. Titanfall sold twice as much as Infamous: SS. And still sold a lot more in its first week than Infamous: SS during its lifetime (so far).

TC owned. TitanFall numbers eclipse anything that NotFamous is trying to do.

#8 Posted by BigBoss255 (3539 posts) -

Titanfall clearly wasn't the game changed that MS hoped it would be. They've got no chance this gen.

#16 Posted by _Matt_ (9539 posts) -

TF sold massively in the UK, the numbers Des provided just about shows that if accurate.

TF is also currently the number #1 bestseller on Amazon UK for entire 2014 in games.

#23 Posted by edwardecl (2239 posts) -

Titanfall is still a winner for the devs though, they have probably spent less than half the man hours creating Titanfall as it's just a multiplayer game made on an engine they did not even create and still sell for full price (well apart from the ones MS give away but they get paid regardless). It really is a win for the devs in the short term. Not trying to put down the work they have done or anything, they have probably done the best with what they had and it is their first game as a new studio and people seem to like it.

Their next game will probably be better especially if they don't use an outdated engine that is not optimised for the platform. I'm just glad to see a over hyped first person shooter is not the game changer Microsoft thought it would be and other games can still compete. I don't want first person shooters to be the main draw to a platform, especially when you see devs spending a lot more time and effort making other things and not be rewarded as much.

#24 Edited by GrenadeLauncher (6256 posts) -

Yes, two weeks in number one. Count them.

This is the kind of shit I'd expect from a lesser fanboy. I guess I gave you too much credit.

if Titanfall couldn't do crap for the Xbone then will Halo be able to do something? I heard it's coming this fall and Halo it's like M$'s biggest game franchise.

#29 Posted by GrenadeLauncher (6256 posts) -

I love how TF's totally fallen off the radar already despite all the hype.

I wonder how big the landfill will have to be to get rid of all the Titanflop merchandise.

EA definitely isnt happy. Not releasing it on the PS4 made them loose potential buyers, even for its sequels. I doubt the MS deal was better than what they would have sold on the PS4, especially when its biggest franchises (Battlefield 4 and FIFA 14) are selling better on the PS4

The same could be said about the XBone and Titanfall. And thats not even an exclusive...

Nobody expected Infamous to outsell Titanfall.

The story here is that Titanfall is a huge flop. If it was the game changer that MS hyped it to be then word of mouth would be spreading and people would be rushing out to buy the game and a bone if necessary.

The fact that it only topped the chart for one week clearly shows that this isn't happening. MS were really depending on this game and filled its launch with artificial hype. You have to laugh that Infamous, which isn't even one of Sony's big franchises, is keeping it off top spot.

Infamous is outselling Titanfall with half the advertising. March NPD is going to be really interesting:-)

#38 Posted by Chutebox (38724 posts) -

@tymeservesfate: That's the case with X1 too. So..... Do you have a point? Neither system have had any big games since launch

#39 Posted by Chutebox (38724 posts) -

And titanfall has been out longer, so no surprise that is gone down. ...

#40 Edited by lglz1337 (4445 posts) -

#41 Posted by LanceX2 (312 posts) -

why is noone stating infamous dropped -67% week two when they laughed titanfall dropped -73%? Cows are dumb as hell. Titanfall has. 25% or higher attach rate already. Infamous isn't even close to 25% attach even with having couple million more consoles. Cows will cow. 25% attach is amazing hell CoD doesn't get 25% attach on last Gen :P
