According to the latest NPD report, PlayStation continues to see growth in software with a strong demand for exclusive PlayStation 3 franchise titles, SCEA's Patrick Seybold gloated in a press release. Give the guy a break, he had to talk about nothing but the PSN outage for about a month.
The recently launched inFamous 2 was the number one software SKU in June.
In addition, momentum is accelerating with the upcoming fall releases of Resistance 3 and Uncharted 3 on the horizon. This week the Uncharted 3 multiplayer beta surpassed 1.5 million unique players [that's insane! - Ed], demonstrating the strength of the PlayStation platform and consumers interest in gaming experiences that combine rich stories, challenging gameplay, and exhilarating 3D immersion.
To be honest, we're a little surprised by this announcement. We appreciate inFamous 2's a great title, and that the series has a big following, but we weren't expecting the game to have chart-topping success. Huge congratulations to the team at Sucker Punch for that. Well deserved.
