Many people are getting Titanfall digitally since the game is MP only. I know I am. There is no need to get a physical copy. I don't sell games.

I wasn't planning on it because I figure that the servers will be hammered when it launches, but then again, I'd rather have it digitally. (since I won't consider trading it in) I just wish they allowed for the damn pre-load option where you can buy the game and download it, but it is not playable until the game releases. Now we have to download it and wait hours for their servers, which will be slammed, to give us like 500 kb/s speed regardless of our internet.

I would shit all the bricks if Infamous dominated this month. The tears would be monumental. I'd have to retire from SW because nothing could hope to top it.

haha you are so sad. you dont even have a ps4 and you get this excited about a game selling more copies. what a prick.

What if I get excited about it selling more? :D

then you'll still be my buddy heil68. are you getting titanfall for your XB1 btw? We never did get round to playing Ryse together......The other day i was playing with a dude who had put in about 342 hours into the multplayer! he had 142,000 kills!

I'll see if you're online this weekend, maybe we can play.

80 million PS3 consoles

6 million PS4 consoles

Those 6 million people MUST BE REALLY BORED.

I'm not bored...but that's only because i have an Xbox one and a PC too ;)

seriously I've probably played less then 2 hours since launch on my PS4

@Nengo_Flow: so you call me troll because you herms can't prove me wrong? Last, desperate attempt. Just like calling someone a Nazi. It's a term to use when you've run out of ammo.

If i find one i'll buy it on the spot but so far cant seem to find any PS4's available so i'll just buy the game even without having a PS4 and will play it whenever i actually get a PS4.. the reason why i had to preorder infamous now is because of the awesome Limited Edition which i do not want to miss and thankfully i preordered my CE right before it gets officially sold out almost everywhere.

Okay, the collectors edition stuff makes a bit more sense.

Wow! Considering how well The Last of Us sold in its first month (3.5 million) that's pretty impressive (see what happens when you market a game, Sony?).

It's great to hear though. Love the series. May not sell as much in its first month as The Last of Us but if it breaks 3 million in its first month, I'll not only be impressed but that would bold well for the series.

http://www.vg247.com/2014/03/07/infamous-second-son-pre-orders-higher-than-the-last-of-us-sony-confirms/

Maybe I'm remembering this wrong but "The Last of Us" seemed to sell more by stellar reviews and word of mouth than by marketing.

Infamous certainly doesn't look like it will turn out to be as good of a game as The Last of Us, so I think we're just seeing pure marketing hype at this point. We will know soon enough.

@sts106mat: Lems didn't start the hype for Titanfall...?... Are you serious?.....

100% the hype was started by the journalists who spent time playing with it a E3, showering it with awards

Nope. You could say that for almost any game shown on E3, really.

Lems (not just here) were hyping it like crazy even before news of any awards. Heck a couple of them (mostly trolls though) were already hyping it as soon as it was announced (which was a couple of months before any gameplay).

Well i didn't see/ or hearabout it that way. As far as i am concerned the hype went ballistic after everyone raving about it during and after E3

Actually the hype came when it was announced to be a new FPS franchise "from the makers of COD" and unavalible on PS consoles. This was in fact before anything had been shown.

Fanboys were hyping it just because the COD develoeprs were making it and it wasn't going to be on PS3 or PS4.

#71 Posted by shellcase86 (1934 posts) -

It will be a really solid title regardless.

#73 Edited by fyron256 (92 posts) -

Well when you have no games to play except to scrape the bottom of the indie-game barrel what do you expect?!

A free game bundled with a discounted Xbox One you may want to add.

I just brought lems together. That feels...pretty heartwarming. :3

Makes sense there's nothing else worthwhile to play on the ps4

#77 Posted by getyeryayasout (7764 posts) -

Not bad considering SS is selling to a user base less than 1/10 the size of what the PS3 was at when TLoU came out.

#78 Posted by foxhound_fox (89430 posts) -

When it's the only thing worth talking about since PS4's launch, I'm not surprised.
