PS4 Favourite inFAMOUS: Second Son Burns Through One Million Copies

Posted by Sammy Barker

In just nine days

Xbox One semi-exclusive Titanfall may have been the biggest release in March, but that’s not stopped inFAMOUS: Second Son from dropping a smoke bomb at retail. Sony has revealed that the PlayStation 4 exclusive surpassed one million sales within nine days of its release, making it by far the fastest selling entry in Sucker Punch’s previously underappreciated superhero series.

It’s been good couple of months for first-party titles, as Killzone: Shadow Fall has also proved a gigantic success, ratcheting up sales in the region of 2.1 million units. Meanwhile, the popularity of The Last of Us on the PlayStation 3 bodes well for its just-announced next-gen re-release. Even the critically maligned Knack has fared, er, fairly well – primarily due to day one Japanese PS4 bundles including a copy of the old-school affair.

Have you already burned through Delsin Rowe’s inaugural adventure, or is the release still glowing like neon on your Amazon wishlist? Sing your favourite Nirvana song in the comments section below.

That's great, it deserves it. Hopefully the momentum will keep going.

Mine should be on its way to me in the post right now! Yay!

Anyway they are good sales figures. Goes to show PS4 owners are eager for more AAA blockbusters, especially first party Sony ones...

Yeah, it's a really impressive number. Fully deserved, though - probably my personal favourite game of the year so far.

Its just a fun game to play, zipping about the city destroying whatever you can. I absolutely loved it, completed it as a good guy n giving it to a friend, when I get it back I'm going to play through it as a bad guy n love it just the same.

I've always wanted to ask, but why can't websites like Amazon publicly show how many copies were bought etc?

(I mean on the page of the game, where the details/info and metacritic score is)

Not bad considering Titanfall and MGS V Ground Zeroes (prologue but was still hyped) released not too far ahead and Sony did literally nothing in the way of advertising for inFamous. Only complaint was that the game seemed a little on the short side, but awesome none the less and glad it's selling well. Can't wait for Sucker Punch's next game, whatever it is (hopefully another inFamous).
