Holy shit, that turnaround since the PS3 is fantastic. Congrats Sony.

Now get your other system in shape.

And Sony didnt even have to try sleezy desperate tactics to sell units and their game unlike that other company...............

Good timing on Infamous.

what are these numbers based on?

#7 Posted by GoldenElementXL (2562 posts) -

I knew Infamous was going to do well. What I don't understand is how I couldn't find a Gamestop doing a midnight launch in a 100 mile radius from where I was in N.C. Or where I live in Michigan. GameStop needs 100 preorders to host a midnight launch and most stores said they weren't close. Titanfall had a midnight launch the week before there and I don't think there were anywhere near 100 people there. I'm not one for conspiracies but this makes me wonder.

Yeah no price cuts that are kept out of the press

And selling in like 30 more markets doesn't hurt.

Like they did last gen. The PS4 is $100 cheaper so.

@CrownKingArthur: Forgot to reply. Nengo_flows comment "And Sony didnt even have to try sleezy desperate tactics to sell units and their game unlike that other company..............." If dropping the price even if unofficial and giving away a game is wrong, then I dont want to be right!

Insiderp is a dodgy source, but if lemmings can use Pete Dodd and VGcharts to claim the Xbone sold a million off Tituhfuhh and Tituhfuhh sold a million copies, I can use this. Thanks!

March NPD and lems?

#21 Posted by Nonstop-Madness (9466 posts) -

terrible source

#22 Posted by darkspineslayer (19346 posts) -

Well deserved, well deserved. Maybe we can look forward to more in the InFamous series now, since they can sure as hell go anywhere with a power of stealing powers.

Why can't I stops laughing

Well deserved success (although inFamous sales are obviously inflated by the lack of compelling exclusive alternatives) for Sony and Sucker Punch =)

#26 Posted by megaspiderweb09 (3665 posts) -

Well i suppose it is to be expected given the lack of compelling games, that being said i think this is an opportunity for Sony to re introduce new PS4 owners to TLOU n Puppeteer.

@tyloss: Neither will nintendo or microsoft ever accomplish such a amazing goal. PS4=The fastest selling $400 in the history.

Sony is ballinnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn'....

Very sketchy "source" at best. If you can find one that doesn't have a track record of being very inconsistent then please PM me and we can reopen this.

Two wrongs do not make a right.
