According to a delightful press release we received yesterday afternoon, Sucker Punch’s inFamous: Second Son has become the second PlayStation 4 exclusive game to join the million sold club – and it managed that feat in just 9 days.
The first to claim that accolade was Killzone: Shadowfall, but what makes this particular feat impressive is that Second Son is now officially the fastest selling inFamous game in the history of the series. Why is that impressive? The install base for the PlayStation 4 is significantly lower now than when either of the first games were released on the PlayStation 3.
According to the press release the magic million encompasses both “Blu-ray Disc sell-thru quantities and download version sales on PlayStation®Store as of March 29, 2014.” That rather implies that it sold, not just shipped numbers too and, presumably, includes copies from the inFamous hardware bundle.
Is it because PS4 owners were just aching for a great new game to play, or is it because inFamous is a genuinely fantastic, deserving game? Honestly, it’s probably a bit of both. In our own review, we called it be the best inFamous yet.
“Infamous: Second Son wears its rebellious heart on its sleeve. Brimming with attitude, unrelenting and massive to take in, the game never forgets the most important aspect of game design however, and remains consistently fun.”
