Forums - Sony Discussion - Will PS4 push Killzone/Infamous to new heights?

Killzone and Infamous typically sell in the 2 million range. Could that change this generation? They are both rumoured to be launch titles and will likely be marketed pretty heavily since they could be the only big exclusives for launch (most other big launch games will likely also be on PS3, 360, 720, PC). I think its likely these 2 will join Kratos and Nathan Drake in the 5+ million club.

My guess is that Killzone will sell really well since its a shooter and it will prolly be bundled and whatnot... Unless Sony decides that BF4 will be a launch title aswell, then it will steal ALOT of the sales from Killzone since BF is the more popular choice. Infamous will sell well but between Infamous and Watch dogs i chose watch dogs and i think alot of people will do the same since its a new IP

Maybe. Killzone did get a bump in sales when it moved to the PS3. Not too sure if that it will happen to inFamous.



Plus look at resistance, that game sold over 4 million but would probably only been around 2 million if it hadnt been a launch title

the right question is: Will Killzone and Infamous push PS4 to new heights?

Games sell consoles, not consoles sell games

I think both games are going to have higher sales than last generation. Usually launch games do good because the amount of games available is limited. However, this is assuming these are only the two big ps4 launch games developed by Sony.

i could see killzone hitting around 4-5m, the new look will appeal to cod/halo fans



Both look excellent, but it depends on how good they are and what their competition is, e.g. COD and BF also at launch? KZ sells significantly less. KZ gets 93 on MC? A few more people get KZ/the KZ bundle. 79? Those people go for some other game/bundle instead.

RIght now people will choose Watch dogs over infamous, as there have been lot of info and compelling gameplay to make the choice and on the other hand we have nothing on Infamous besides teaser trailer. so i guess when sucker punch gives out more details on Infamous i m sure the interest will rise!

Yes, Killzone will do similar to Resistance, with bundles of course.
