Infamous: Festival of Blood tops November PSN sales

Sucker Punch's $10 vampire-infused take on the world of Infamous claims title of "fastest-selling PS3 digital game ever launched on PSN."


Sony today released its list of the top 20 best-selling PlayStation Network games for the month of November, revealing that Infamous: Festival of Blood has infected the top spot and set a new record for PSN game launches.

Festival of Blood finally offered fantasy fulfillment to those who really, really want to be bloodsucking bike messengers.

The $10 stand-alone follow-up to Infamous 2, Infamous: Festival of Blood casts players as a vampiric Cole McGrath who has a single night to track down the head vampire responsible for an undead infection sweeping through New Marais. Sony claimed the title set a new record as the "fastest-selling PS3 digital game ever launched on PSN," but did not reveal sales figures for the game.

Saints Row 2 was the second-best-selling full game of the month, capitalizing on buoyed interest in the series with November's launch of Saints Row: The Third, not to mention a promotion that sees Saints Row: The Third owners given a free downloadable copy of its predecessor. Overkill Software's Payday: The Heist and EA's NBA Jam: On Fire Edition both dropped spots over last month, and Limbo rose to the number five spot after not charting at all last month (the game was the subject of a half-off sale for PlayStation Plus members during November).

The new PSOne Classics top 5 chart was completely dominated by Square Enix titles from the Final Fantasy and Chrono series of games, and two new releases--Corpse Party and Fate/Extra--grabbed the top two spots on the new PSP-specific chart.
