Forums - Sony Discussion - Infamous is going to be huge (youtube views!)

The infmaous gameplay spot currently has 4.6 million views. The live action trailer already has 3 million views.

Adding up all its major videos, infamous has about 21 million views. That's a lot!

 

Now comparing that number to Titanfall is pretty stupid. It's a different channel and different circumstances. Comparing to another PS4 exclusive seems like a much better apples to apples comparison. I'll use Killzone 6.

 

Killzone's most viewed video on the playstation channel has 3.3 million views, a lot less than infamous. In total, all Killzone videos only have about 5 million views. Infamous is DOMINATING. That's impressive, because Killzone has already sold over 2.1 million copies to consumers. If we break it up to views per video, it's still 1.25 million to 3 million. A direct correlation of views to sales would predict 3-5 million sales for Infamous's early life.

 

Do views correlate to sales though? Let's look at knack. Its top video has a million views. Total it has about 1 and a half million views or .5 million views per video. Going off VGCHARTZ the game has sold 0.9 million, or 0.6 million without the Japan bundle. Using Knack as the starting point, it shows 4-5.5 / 2.75-3.5 depending on if you include Japan or not. Those numbers are pretty close to what Killzone produces, so I'd take it as ok evidence that views do correlate pretty well with PS4 game sales.

 

TLDR: Youtube says Infamous will sell about 4 million before the holidays even begin.

I could see it happening, but I don't see it getting anymore than 5 million sales.



The game will sell very well. It's really the first big exclusive for the PS4.

I thought an Xbox exec said it was an Xbox One exclusive.

Edit: Forget that. I thought I was on a Watch Dogs thread.



This game will definitely be the highest selling natural title to come out of the InFamous franchise. It definitely needed a reboot in the way it approached gameplay and its visual approach.

Killzone: SF is great and is definitely going to hold me off until InFamous. Both are great exclusives. I definitely chose to get the PS4 at a great time in between where I can just jump from one game to the next. :)

I know. By huge I assumed he meant more than that.

Maybe but lots of views are from it being heavily advertised on youtube as well. We shall see though if it will sell loads!
