inFAMOUS: Second Son $570 PS4 Bundle Instantly Tops GameStop’s Best Sellers; Titanfall Bundle 23rd

by on February 25, 2014 6:16 PM 197

Apparently the hype for inFAMOUS: Second Son combined with the chance to get a PS4 (that is still quite hard to find in stores) in time to play Sucker Punch’s upcoming exclusive are making the newly announced GameStop bundle quite popular between the customers of the leading retailer.

The package, that includes the console, the game, an additional DualShock 4 controller and one year of PlayStation Plus membership for the not exactly cheap price of $569.96, basically instantly jumped to the top of the retailer’s best sellers charts, overtaking a few different values of Xbox gift cards, as you can see below.

To offer a term of comparison, Titanfall‘s Xbox One bundle that was made available yesterday is ranked 23d. The two bundles will also be released in a similar timeframe, and will probably be the major contenders, together with Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, for March’s sales. It’ll definitely be interesting to see the clash between those three titles in a rather crowded month.

On the other hand, looking at the games by themselves, Titanfall is quite far ahead of the competition, ranking 8th against 33rd.

This kind of success for the bundle is quite interesting, especially considering the price, that basically doesn’t offer any savings compared to purchasing all the items included by themselves. I actually wonder if this means that GameStop expects the PS4 to be still hard to find come March 21st.

    Sweet but a lil too pricey.

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      Yeah, you can buy the items by themselves and it’s the same price. They’re probably counting on the fact that finding a PS4 on its own now is hard.

      • hayanaonaa

        For your info, that list is not a best seller list, but a list of the most famous online products, meaning clicks, not purchases. And also, Amazon stats show that Titanfall xbox one version alone has murdered infamous second son, and these are the presales stats: http://www.vgchartz.com/preorders/, so the article is kind of wrong! lol

        • 3rdworldgamer

          have you read the article? the numbers are for Gamestop stores only, not worldwide. and one more thing, stop relying on vgchartz, its not exactly accurate.

  • Logash

    Crazy how well the PS4 is selling. Really good for gamers though. 3rd parties are gonna jump on it much faster.

  • Psionicinversion

    thre prolly counting on a bundle to help the ps54 sell more. Not knocking it but bundles are usually plned like cpl months before if there custom artowrk on the boxes defo cpl months bfore to sign off and get apparoval then pruinted and shipped etc. PS4 doesnt need as bundle tbh

    could just be another marketing ploy PS4 coms with infamous exactly the same as price for seoarate macine + game just to give anoth kick into MS’s b0ll0cks, but could be more inncoent never now

    • Mikeherp Derp

      Are you on drugs? lol

      • Psionicinversion

        well if im giving advice on the PS54, maybe i have bin know to be psychic but never get matching socks!!

    • Ritsujun

      Don’t sleep and type.

  • Psionicinversion

    says alot when they need to drop prototype 3 with different gfx on the ps4 users and trying bundle it with it saying ita ok….

    • Bankai

      Prototype wishes it were Second Son and I’m not sure the rest of your comment was even English.

  • stealth20k

    Those rankings, Gamestop has never determined how they calculate those. I think it is site hits, so nothing really concrete.

    • Mikeherp Derp

      lol

    • mos

      You are right, those rankings aren’t based on sales people should l=look at the list carefully, you mean to tell me gears of war 2 is outselling south park stick of truth, come on now kids.

      • 321

        erm… i don’t know what you think you saw but it’s not. i just checked. sorted it by BEST SELLING and looked at the xbox360 rankings. south park is on the first page. gears isn’t.

  • Robbie Yarber

    All the people expecting Titanfall to sell Xbones are in for a rude awakening.

    • Mikeherp Derp

      It won’t sell nearly as many as they’re hoping, that’s for sure.

      • Robbie Yarber

        I called GameStop and they said they would give me 240 dollars cash for my Xbone. Dunno if I should take their offer.

        • JesterMarcus

          Find somebody near you and sell it for $350-400.

          • Robbie Yarber

            My bro said he’ll give me 325 for it! :D

          • JesterMarcus

            Better than $240, but you might still be able to get a better deal if you look.

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            You mean “PS2″ is number 1. I don’t know what are you talking about other than the system that obliterates the competition.

          • Gamez Rule

            Put it this way, as time goes by it will drop in price, so if you want to sell, I would do so at that price

        • Raul Juarez

          Only if you really really want to. I dont see a purpose in doing it if it doesnt have the library you want to play.
          Especially if you dont have a PC to play titanfall. That is if you even want to play titanfall, in which case I say do it.
          This is the reason why.

          X1 titanfall bundle $500 (Not including a year of live so that would be 560 total) = Game $60, Console $500, 1 month live $24

          PS4 Infamous (this includes 1 year psn+ for $10 more then the X1 titanfall bundle which does not includes a 1 year live sub) = game 60$, Console 400, extra controller 60, 1 year psn+

          • Robbie Yarber

            Well, I already have a PS4. The only reason I would keep the Xbone is for Halo, but at this point I don’t know if Halo is worth it.

          • Raul Juarez

            That’s funny.
            I also am not sure about the next halo either. I wasn’t a big fan of halo 4 either. Didn’t like the direction they took the chief on that one.

          • Thun3r

            That is exactly why I refuse to buy a one. If they dont release a halo edition xbox when 5 comes out then I wont be buying it until 6 or 7 (whenever they do release a custom xbox).

          • Tadeo Teran

            Trade the x1 for a new PS4 and then sell it new on Ebay, the console is still low in stock everywhere so you can still get a small profit

          • Gamez Rule

            And the Titanfall bundle is only a download version of the game while Infamous is the actual game.

        • jakdripr

          If you’ve already bought it I recommend just keeping it. There will definitely be some exclusives that you’ll enjoy coming out in the future and selling it for half price just doesn’t seem worth it.

          • CervantesPR

            nah he should just sell the piece of spying 720P cablebox and buy a PS4, xbox one is not going to have anything different besides whats left of what use to be halo, whats left of what use to be gears,forza, fable.

        • Tyrone_83

          Leave it to Gamestop to rip you off.

          • Guiseppe Mario Mazzola

            i agree gamecrap suck’s they are the biggest rip off’s going in are gameing history.

        • Jessika S.

          Don’t do it!!!!

        • datdude

          240 is about what dat bone should be selling for at retail, minus kinect of course.

        • Peter Harmon

          That’s cash but if you trade it for a ps4 you will get over $400 with the headset.Look on gamestop.com.

          • shinitaru

            There you go, take out the trash and get a great gaming console in one easy step, win-win!

        • Fredrické Hugo

          As much as I don’t like the XB1, even I would say no to that offer.

        • Thun3r

          Ebay. If you have games you should be able to get at least $400 if it is still $500 in stores. They are still new. I doubt you have scratched or damaged it in the short amount of time that it has been out so you should think about that.

        • UsherSucks

          WTF did you expect? I bet they’d give you like $200 for a ps4.

          What’s your point?

        • CervantesPR

          dam $240??? at least get $300 for it and buy a PS4

        • HeczTehFinezt

          Dude, sell it for the same price or $450 and buy yourself a custom gaming PC, then, you’ll have the Dark Side (PS) and the Master Race (PC) together, both shit on Xbone.

        • ask askalso

          Ill give you 350

      • Pedro Carreira

        That board is hilarious and very possibly true.

    • Dan

      If Infamous will sell these bundles, a game no one has cared about in the past, then Titan fall will cause Xbox Ones to fly off the shelf!

      • Bankai

        Many people cared about Infamous in the past, and Titanfall won’t do nearly as well as people believe.

        • shinitaru

          only thing that Titanfall will sell is copies of itself. If it were going to sell more consoles, we would have already seen an increase in sales. We’re seeing just the opposite

        • hayanaonaa

          Well Titanfall is doing amazing, best seller game, and we are talking about only the xbox one version (not even considering PC and 360 version, the game is killing every other game in pre order charts): http://www.vgchartz.com/preorders/

          • Gamez Rule

            Erm, that’s just for the USA?

          • You are flat out wrong

            lol vgchartz. They badly overestimated January’s Xbone numbers and underestimated PS4 numbers.

          • cozomel

            You shouldnt put so much faith into vgchartz

      • shinitaru

        it’s actually the other way around, the fact that there are few PS4 on the shelves it the reason that would go for this bundle so its the console that is actually selling more copies of the game. If people really wanted a PS4 with Infamous SS, they would buy a stand alone system with a copy of the game if they could. Would be much cheaper

        • Dan

          SS is a system seller? I would agree if only for the reason nothing else is coming out on PS4. But a game that’s its two previous versions sold 6 million combined is not a system seller. And that bundle is the exact same price as each item alone. It’s a ploy to get stupid people to buy everything at gamestop.

          • shinitaru

            “And that bundle is the exact same price as each item alone.”

            Learn to read and comprehend, I said that in this case, the system is selling the game, not the other way around. And I said that the bundle is not a deal but since there are few PS4′s available, GS is taking advantage of that.

            You watch, bet that it still sells

      • cozomel

        Is that why the Titanfall bundle is 27th on the rankings whereas this bundle is no.1? Come on bro, think before you speak, you dumb xbox fanboys make the rest of the fanbase look dumb. Come back to reality and out of the dream world you’re in then talk to us, Otherwise prepare for a serious letdown.

        • Dan

          27th on some random sites ranking scale. Not to mention the Titanfall bundle is available at other retailers as well. Use your brain before you post moron,if that’s not too tough. How does gamespot calculate those numbers? Is it page clicks? Actual pre orders? Or gamespot promoting what they want ppl to buy? You have no idea.

          People will buy the X1 when the game is out. I’ve never seen a huge uptick in any console sales 3 weeks before a release. So why is that expected this time around?

          • CervantesPR

            the titanfall bundle will move a few units but dont be implying it will revitalize the xbox one, lol the game is on xbox 360 and PC as well, and yes infamous is not a very notorious game, still an amazing game series tho, but im willing to bet even on the first week of titanfall, the xbox one will not outsell the ps4 and if that happens….. ouch, then a month later

            microsoft anouncement: Xbox one is now $450!

      • dmkd

        Nope. Titanfall is not a system seller. Microsoft failed it.
        Infamous, order, uncharted is system sellers because you must buy ps4 to play it. on the other side you don’t have to buy xone to play titanfall if you already have pc or x360.
        System seller must be exclusive.

        • Tony Anderson

          It’s created a lot of buzz and marketing around the Xbox One though. It’ll sell systems. I already know people buying an X1 for it. So therefore I’m factually correct.

          And honesty, outside of the hardcore console gamer world (a small percentage of population) no one has ever heard of Infamous or Uncharted. Sony has no blockbuster titles while Xbox will be riding Titanfall, Halo, and Gears of War.

          The cheaper device will always win in sales though. Look at the Wii, or at Android’s market share.

          • Louie V

            are you on drugs? people never heard of Uncharted? For god sakes there making a movie about it! hate fan boys!

      • datdude

        If by “xbox ones to fly off the shelf” you mean that they will fall to the ground due to people rushing past to get a ps4 that just got put up on the shelf, you’re absolutely right.

    • Jessika S.

      I think that if it was an exclusive title for the Xbox One it would have been a system seller, I think that the game being on PC and also Xbox 360 will hold it back from being that big hit on the Xbox One. The graphics on this game are not really top notch so the Xbox 360 version will probably look really close to the Xbox One version and it will probably sell more on 360, it’s the cheaper console and there’s like almost 90 million Xbox 360′s out there. I think that the real reason why they held back the Xbox 360 version was to give the Xbox One some breathing room so people can pick it up on that system. I played the beta a lot it’s a real fun game I played on Xbox One I hope it does well.

    • Loghorn

      I agree. And TitanFall also being on Xbox 360 & PC definitely isn’t helping.

    • UsherSucks

      You’re either denying reality or a straight-up idiot if you don’t think titanfall is going to sell xbox ones. So which are you?

  • Gamist

    $569? $549 would’ve been the right price for a “Bundle.”

    • Mikeherp Derp

      PS4s are so hard to find even the retailers are gouging.

  • Mikeherp Derp

    Holding to my prediction that infamous will sell more than Xbox One Titanfall (360/PC excepted). I’m rarely wrong, any takers?

    • TristanPR77

      Not to disagree with you but we have to take some elements in the analysis. Infamous is a single player adventure game only available in 1 platform. Titanfall is a multiplayer only shooter that will be available on 3 platforms so I think is not fair making a comparison since they are targeted at a specific market. Now, if Infamous do manage to sell at least more than the xbone version (not the other 2 platforms combined) then Microsoft is in more trouble than expected because Microsoft has simply put the destiny of the xbone in titanfall.

      • shinitaru

        He said “…infamous will sell more than Xbox One Titanfall (360/PC excepted)”

      • hayanaonaa

        The xbox one version itself is the best seller in everything for nearly a month.

      • Mikeherp Derp

        PS4 will have twice the install base soon, that’s a lot more potential customers. And they are hungry for a next gen exclusive. lol

    • hayanaonaa

      You are wrong, really wrong, here is the proof: http://www.vgchartz.com/preorders/

      • Tyrone_83

        VGChartz isn’t a reliable source.

      • Mikeherp Derp

        I’ve seen that lol

    • CervantesPR

      i agree! i bet infamous second son will outsell the xbox one version of titanfall!

  • HeczTehFinezt

    Thats awesome. Cant wait till March so I can pick up infamous Second Son and MGS V. I’ll pick up Titanfall but for PC.
    To be honest, TF isnt much of a system seller, my reason for saying this is the fact that it feels like the typical fps games we play or see nowadays. I played it for 3 hrs but the 1st hour, I got bored. Ask yourself Xbox fan, are you really going to spend $500 to buy an XOne, just to play one game. I would use that money to buy a gaming rig. As for infamous Second Son, I have mixed feelings on whether I believe its a system seller like The Last of Us but I am excited and cant wait to play it :D

    • Robbie Yarber

      Lol, the whole reason I bought an Xbone is for Halo, and now I’m wishing I never had.

      Thank god I bought a PS4 when Best Buy got a restock at the beginning of this month.

      • HeczTehFinezt

        I’ll buy an XBone if they have some exclusuves that are interesting.

        Congrats :)

    • http://www.dnaustrem.com/ DNA

      Don’t expect Infamous Second Son to be on par with The Last Of Us, especially in intensity of storytelling.

      The PS4 exclusive The Order1886 has been touted as being more like TLOU in storytelling terms.

      • HeczTehFinezt

        Im not saying it will but you never know and how can you tell the story wont be up to par with TLoU? Infamous and The Order arent even released. The trailers or interviews from the developers dont mean much to me, I gotta play the game and see for myself.

        • http://www.dnaustrem.com/ DNA

          Because TLOU is the kind of game that comes around once every 5 years. Not every year.

          • BalramRules

            Did Sucker Punch claim it’s going to be a TLOU? No!
            So give this game a chance, I’m definitely going to enjoy it, I know what I see, and what I’m seeing is epicness.
            inFamous ftw.

        • hayanaonaa

          Dude if you think Infamous is gonna be that good, then INfamous is gonna dissapoint badly!

          • Lord Akki

            The only one here that is going to be disappointed when Infamous SS is released in all it’s glory is you! LOL

            Talk about gaming on a shitbox :)

        • datdude

          The concept for The Order:1886 is fantastic. The limited view we’ve seen of the graphics is also fantastic. Whether it lives up to expectations remains to be seen, but I like what I’ve seen so far.

      • Thun3r

        Why would you think it would be…. Two different games… Two different devs… The devs never said it would be…. Why would you assume that most games would be all of a sudden just because of TLOU coming out…. One game has value we only see every 4-5 years. Why did you write this?

    • Dan

      Got bored after an hour still buying it…..hmmm very strange

      • HeczTehFinezt

        Keep in mind, its a beta, you never know what the final game may include. Im willing to give it a chance.

        • CervantesPR

          if i were you i would just stick to infamous second son, mgsV,dark souls 2, south park then buy titanfall when its in a half off sale a month later on origin, played titanfall thoroghly, it was a good game, but remember, shooters have a honeymoon phase were everything is awsome and cool and fresh, so just wait it out like i will, dark souls 2 and infamous 2 is more than i can handle for march, remember EA games also have tons of problems at launch. so i would just wait it out especially if you have bf4, naval strike DLC coming late march as well.

  • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

    I want it now!

  • jakdripr

    I’m not going to lie I am incredibly biased towards sony this generation. With that said, I’m surprised at all these reports of the Xbone not doing well, I thought once MS regressed on those stupid restrictions they were going to implement the Xbone would do aight. I figured the PS4 would outsell it but only because it was $100 cheaper.

    We’ll see how titanfall affects sales in a few weeks.

  • DrunkwitPowah

    System seller my ass! lol

  • hayanaonaa

    Amazon is completely different. Titanfall bundle is 7th in best sellers, The game on xbox one is 8th, Infamous the game itself is like 12th. Lol

    • You are flat out wrong

      What an overwhelming difference.

  • alchemistx24x7

    On amazon Titanfall bundle #7 while infamous bundle not in top 100

    • shinitaru

      so what?

      • alchemistx24x7

        Get Ready for Titanfall…lol..

        • shinitaru

          • shinitaru

            I was never one of them. even if it were coming to the PS4, I wouldn’t buy that piece of sh*t. I could even buy the superior version of it for my PC but I’m not going to.

            But you go ahead and enjoy, I hope so. It’s all you get to Xmas

          • alchemistx24x7

            In related news confirmed by Sony..Sony santa monica has laid off a hefty chunk of staff, canceled a game they were working on for ps4 and from all acounts from the media 1886 the order they are working on plays like crap as stated from those who was invited to there closed demo a week ago..lol

          • shinitaru

            Has nothing to do with you or what we were talking. Nice attempt at misdirection…but fail

          • XDrone (is the new name)-lol

            Lol, state and prove your facts about the cancelled game and 1886….. you are the worst kinda fanboy. You believe anything and just state anykind of comment to downplay what is bad about your system. Dude get a life, titanfail can barely run 720 oh wait I’m sorry….792 and has no single player and only 6 count player field. That’s your game that you want so so much? Then be my guess and have it. Also if there was “one” game cancelled on the ps4, that is only 1/100% of games coming out for the ps4. And how many games you guys have, what halo???? Lol at u brahhh….. next time come with some real comments cuz nobody is taking u seriously……

          • alchemistx24x7

            Here is the link with the comments from Sony themselves..lol..http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/02/25/layoffs-hit-god-of-war-studio-sony-santa-monica ..ENJOY

          • shinitaru

            I’m sure you think that’s good news, who cares about the people who just lost their jobs as long as you feel a little more secure in your console purchase?

          • alchemistx24x7

            Sony ponies want proof there you go proof.

            Hey alchemist, how about not being a total a$$hole for like once in your miserable life.

          • You are flat out wrong

            In related news: the Xbone is crap and Elop is going to kill the brand. :)

          • XDrone (is the new name)-lol

            Lol at ur brah….. you are so the type that micro$oft loves. First and foremost, any person with a grain of salt knows that ign is on micro$oft payroll, u dope. Second, everybody knows that dude from there was net picking the gameplay with his, worries, knows he was just trying to throw the game under the bus. So if that’s all you got then you are worse off then I thought buddy, and my time talking to you is not worth it, cuz I know you have NO knowledge if your own. Good day and best of luck to you with titanfail………… lol

          • Alfonzo Manzano

            Facts? You want facts? Okay!

            1) you are an xbot idiot

            2) Sony has nearly sold 6 million units

            3) No update but Xbox was only at 3.2 million units sold

            4) It has so much trouble reaching 1080p

            5) The majority of gamers hate the Kinect

            6) Developers are praising the PS4

            7) I love indie games and am proud of Sony for supporting them

            8) did I mention you were an idiot? Cause that is the most important fact of all.

          • shinitaru

            You listed that he was an idiot twice, that’s okay it was an important point

            It was a fact that needed to be repeated twice.

            still outsold xbone though…

          • alchemistx24x7

            In related news: Confirmed by Sony Deep down from Capcom will be a f2p with heavy amounts of microtrans..lol..AKA you will have to pay a ton of money 2 play and finish that game there will be charged for level increases after a you hit a cap on levels set by capcom ..But i thought sony was all about the gamers..lol..also confirmed deep down like 1886 and many other ps4 games will only be single player..lmao thats next gen stuff.lol..

          • shinitaru

            sort of like Forza 5. It’s a F2P, microtrans are to be expected.
            And you have no idea what the pricing or the items will be, just more fanboy crap

          • alchemistx24x7

            I think its more like GT6.lo. which has a microtrans that for one car cost $200..wtf..Sony is all about the gamers..

          • shinitaru

            As I said, you have no idea what you are talking about.
            Sony doesn’t care that much about the gamers, they care about money like every other company, but they also care about their product and providing value unlike MS that just markets crap and spends more on Ads and PR than they do engineering

          • alchemistx24x7

            DO you know why Sony just sold there Computer & T.V. divisions..Was not because of providing a great product at a great value it was the total opposite..lol..Much like they did in 2006 launching ps3 with a price tag of $600..

          • shinitaru

            They provided quality but the market doesn’t want quality TV, they want cheap. Simple as that. Had nothing to do with not providing value, the value is there if you can afford the Sony brand, same as always.

          • Alfonzo Manzano

            You mean like Microsoft and its 720p console? Yeah GREAT value.

          • shinitaru

            I think he’s stumbled to bed to sleep off the paint thinner he’s been drinking

          • Thomas Cai Jinzhan

            have u even play GT6 to even comment on that?

          • Thomas Cai Jinzhan

            Still outsold xbone though

            your reply: titanfall

            my reply: Still outsold xbone though

            your reply: just wait for titanfall to rule them all

            my reply: Still outsold xbone though…

            and the cycle repeats itself….

          • alchemistx24x7

            I am sure your at least at 3rd grade level so you may understand simple fact and numbers…Sony has sold roughly 5.3 mill but the just launched in japan and sold another 300,000 but lets just round that up to 6million..So Sony has sold 6mill in over 51+ countries while MS has sold 4million in just 13 countries.Now common sense would tell a person that with 40 country advantage over MS One would hope ps4 would out sell xbx1 and one would also hope with that 40+ country advantage it would out sell a hell of lot more ps4 than xbx1 than it is now MS in only 13 countries is less than 2million apart in sales from ps4 WTF..All MS has to do is average less than 30,00 in sales in those 40 other countries to over take ps4 you ponies can spin it how you want but thats the facts in 13 countries MS is putting up bout the same sale numbers as sony who is in 50+ countries..

          • Mikeherp Derp

            MS Shipped 3.9 million. They’ve sold about 3.4-3.5 million by the end of this month. That makes it 6.0-6.1 million to 3.4-3.5 million.

            Xboner launching in much smaller, PS3/4 dominated “tier 2″ countries isn’t going to do crap for them.

            You’re dumb, wrong, and delusional.

          • alchemistx24x7

            Well you proved my point Sony ponies are to dumb to under stand common sense facts and numbers..lol..Dont feel bad its not only you it tends to be a common disease among sony ponies..

          • shinitaru

            Thought you were going to bed? Just like an Xbot, can’t sleep until you get the last word in

          • Mikeherp Derp

            You’re dumb as a brick, wrong, and delusional. Replying to you is like picking on a special kid. When Xbox launches in ‘tier 2′ countries it’s not going to do crap for them.

          • Alfonzo Manzano

            So let’s just blame Microsoft for being stupid and not shipping their product in those other countries. They were bragging so much about how many more Xbox Ones they were manufacturing compared to PS4′s.

          • shinitaru

            It’s not stupidity, it’s resignation. They know they have no market there

          • Thomas Cai Jinzhan

            it makes sense if you assume it this way…until you realise the fact that Microsoft will either not be launching in those 40+ countries that sony already launched or will be having limited launch (does MS even wanted to launch in Japan).

            Look, i understand if you are in US and from US POV, MS and Xbox is in a very good position and strong possiblity to fight back PS4…but i am in Singapore and working in Hong Kong, both countries that is the Hub of APAC. I can safely said there’s no way in chance the Xbone is gonna caught up (and before anything else, they don’t even have any release date for the whole of APAC). Microsoft is making the same early mistake that Sony committed during the early PS3 cycle. Assuming that customers will wait for its product and will hold off buying the competitors. A large number of PS2 owners jumped ship then to 360 (alot of APAC gamers did that) due to PS3 late availability and price. Look at where the Xbone is now as compared to PS4. Late availability and price. Do you really think (and hope) that customer will wait for more than a full year to wait for the Xbone (and god knows, you will quote Titanfall)? I’m sure you hope you are right. We will see one year from now to see who’s right.

            And before you think that the APAC region is irrelevant, I don’t think you are doing any favour to MS if all you want for the Xbone is to ‘win’ in the US. The game industry now is different from then. 3rd party publishers will want to support the platform with the larger international market, not just a domestic market, as much as you would like to think that the US market equals the entire world.

            (p.s. And insulting my intelligence is not gonna win any argument. If anything else, if i’m 3rd grader, then an ‘adult’ like you arguing with a ’3rd grader’ like me just makes you seems so ‘mature’ (pun intended).)

          • Alfonzo Manzano

            Once again…another stupid Xbot. You talk as if Sony is developing it. If there are micro transactions that is because Capcom wants them! So your statement about Sony and the gamers has nothing to do with Deep Down. Also what is wrong with single player games? Last I checked Grand Theft Auto 5 was praised for its single player campaign. Since the online didn’t work for months. Quit bitching just cause Xbox Ones can’t sell.

          • alchemistx24x7

            Yet again another clueless pony.lol..Sony is the publisher which means they are putting up the money for every cost of this game from beginning to the end and its up to Sony if they want Microtrans in it which it being a f2p( free to play) game of course they will put it in cause thats how Sony is going to get there money back and god knows they need it seeing how they was forced to sell off there computer & television division because of $$$ troubles..Can you pony comprehend that ? do you follow what i jus wrote? or are you to to re re retarded to read..lol..

          • Alfonzo Manzano

            Show me proof that Sony is publishing it. Cause I have found nothing. All businesses have hard times. But they aren’t giving up and they are doing what is needed to stay strong. Do I care if Microsoft is richer? Hell no. Cause the company makes stupid decisions and statements just like you. It’s not always about the money, but the business practice and product itself and so far Xbox One is no where near the same sales as the PS4. There is your fact, retard.

          • Tyrone_83

            You’re also forgetting that Sony fans do have a PC also. It’s not a fail regardless. Waiting a year to play it on the PS4 doesn’t seem that much of a deal to some people.

          • alchemistx24x7

            You do know that its a MS exclusive which means you need a windows based PC to play Titanfall on PC..Either way your paying your enemy..lol..

          • shinitaru

            No, it’s not an MS exclusive, MS doesn’t own the game. EA owns TF so MS probably isn’t making a dime off the PC version.

          • madbads

            haha but i downloaded my windows 8.1 pro from warez? what now?

          • shinitaru

            The botnet has you….

          • Mikeherp Derp

            The MS ninjas are headed to your house right now. lol

          • Alfonzo Manzano

            Enemy? What are we at war here? A PC is a PC not a console. Does not matter if it is windows. It’s not helping Xbox One sales.

          • Tyrone_83

            Microsoft is making no money off the PC version. You do know that right.

          • Alfonzo Manzano

            How is that an epic fail when one of the developers themselves kept hinting at it? It was not until the higher ups at EA made the final call. Think for a second. Why wouldn’t we believe the creators themselves.

    • Alfonzo Manzano

      Oh look another stupid Xbox bot…Let’s think logically…There is an Xbox One bundle that has a month of Xbox Live AND Titanfall for the same price as an Xbox One by itself…OF COURSE IT IS GOING TO BE POPULAR, YOU IDIOT! Who would pass up on that!? The Infamous bundle is basically retail priced. You stupid idiot. Do basic math and stop taking selfies without a shirt on. Also if you want to point out sales facts, I can have fun with that…PS4′s are almost at the 7 million mark. Xbox One is no where near that and even after Titanfall it won’t be anywhere near that. You wanna know why? Because it is not a real exclusive! It is on the PC and the 360!! That is a good 20-30% of sales right there!

    • Mikeherp Derp

      Are you as dumb as you look? It’s an unofficial Gamestop exclusive bundle, of course you won’t see it on Amazon.

      • You are flat out wrong

        Xbots can’t be expected to read or recognise facts.

    • DemonFenton

      The Xbox Mafia is sure out tonight…

  • Imperial General Zimmerman

    Xbone sucks

    • oxi

      real truth xbone complete failure

  • Kam Williams

    Thats interesting but according to VGChartz, the Xb1 version of Titanfall alone is crushing Infamous in preorders. I know a lot of people expected the PC and 360 versions of Titanfall to outpace the Xb1 but it looks the Xb1 is outpacing both 3 to 1. And this was as of 2/22/14 which was before the Titanfall bundle and UK price drops. I would say based on the trends that Titanfall is gonna surprise some folks. Doesn’t hurt that MS just dropped a killer Twitch app and improved party chat either. We’ll see.

    • You are flat out wrong

      lol vgchartz. They were wrong about last month’s US Xbone numbers by a factor of 2.

      Well done for getting stuff the PS4 had three months ago, by the way.

      • Mikeherp Derp

        They have always overtracked MS and undertracked Sony, that’s nothing new. Even then they can’t hide how well PS4 is doing.

      • Kam Williams

        So the PS4′s Twitch can run in full screen, has 10 lines of chat, allows archiving of streams, and allows gamers to join broadcaster games at will….yea…didnt think so. What PS4 got 3 months ago was rushed and limited. I like the false equivalency though…lets me know the sting is real…lol

        • You are flat out wrong

          You can join broadcaster games on PS4 IIRC.

          Wow, ten lines! So awesome. Stupid Xbot. Know what else is limited? The Xbone’s crap GPU!

    • XDrone (is the new name)-lol

      Lol at you and your VGchartz. Every time you guys wanna try to use some statistics, it never fails. You guys use your VGcharyz, lol. How many did those supposed numbers say the ps4 sold the first night before real NPA data came out???? Oh yeah I think they said they had their number at around 500k the first day, and we all know how many actually sold. Everybody that has an IQ above 1 knows that they charts have long been in conjunction with micro$of, oh and don’t bring up, but….. but….but….ign and polygon said that those numbers are right. Child please.

      P.s. I never took your comment or you serious, I only posted this so that ppl that come on here will not believe you dumb, ignorant, incompetent, in very uninformed opinion.

    • Jecht_Sin

      Crushing? It was just about 20% more pre-orders. “Crushing” is the PS4 outselling the Xbone 5-6 to 1 in Europe every week.

  • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

    So Gamestop has an over priced bundle with Second Son so it wont sell, and a twice reduced xbone bundle with Titanfall for free, any guess what system they are trying to get sold?

    • Alfonzo Manzano

      How is it over priced? That’s basically retail. It comes with Infamous, PS Plus, and an extra controller.

      • Mikeherp Derp

        The controllers are like $15 worth of plastic and circuts. $60 is pretty outrageous but it’s one of the ways they make money despite taking a loss on the console itself.

        • Alfonzo Manzano

          …Okay but I don’t see the problem with it being $60 since the Xbox One controller is the same price. That’s standard price for a 1st party controller. Last gen they were both 50

          • Mikeherp Derp

            You asked how it was overpriced, I answered you. lol

          • Alfonzo Manzano

            That’s fair, but if that’s the retail price, that’s the retail price. I’m not gonna get pissed about it. It is what it is. I don’t like games being at $60, but they are. Nothing I can do about that if I want to enjoy them day 1

          • shinitaru

            Yeah, but if you were trying to get a deal, would you want to spend that much? The extra controller and the year of PS+ places the price point higher than the Xbox. That is no accident

          • Alfonzo Manzano

            This is true, but from my understanding people are desperate for PS4′s and they might as well purchase it with at least 2 out of the 3 items they want. Plus isn’t this bundle just gamestops? Do they need Sony’s authorization to have it exist?

          • shinitaru

            I don’t think so, They would to get a reduced price bundle but this just looks like a package that GS threw together and is selling at full retail. Its not a deal at all

          • Alfonzo Manzano

            Oh don’t get me wrong. This Xbox One bundle is a great deal. It’s just as good as their bundles in the UK at launch with Fifa. I’m glad this bundle exist because people will buy this system and it is indeed a great system. I just think the infamous bundle is something people who want a PS4 for that game and Plus are going to be okay with.

          • da Boss

            Yeah, but he didn’t suspect such a moronic answer.

        • Jecht_Sin

          Still it doesn’t make the bundle overpriced. Just at full price.

    • Jecht_Sin

      See, the difference is that with the PS4 the customers are desperate to buy one, with the Xbone MS is desperate to sell one. ^_^

      • datdude

        Amen brother, amen.

    • Aldo Fornasiero

      Or just general consumer demand, people want PS4s – simple.

    • da Boss

      Its not really over priced. You have the PS4 = 400$, the extra controller = 60$, the PSN+ = 50$ and Infamous = 60$. Thats exactly 570$.

      • Mitch

        That’s true, but isn’t the point in getting a bundle to get a discount, since you’re buying multiple things at once? Not complaining about the price, but something like $550 seems better.

        • DelsinRowe

          Normally yes. But this is Gamestop we’re talking about. They see an opportunity to use the PS4 shortage to squeeze more money out of people.

          “Want a PS4? Here, buy all this stuff too and we’ll sell you one.”

        • da Boss

          Yeh, i suppose, but atleast you get it all at once. I mean, i guess its more convenient. This bundle isn’t exactly good or bad, its just meh, and it’ll help with Infamous notoriety (as if infamous needed any more).

  • Robbie Yarber

    With the money I got for my Xbone I’m going to buy a GTX 770 and play Titanfall with graphics the Xbone can only dream of.

    Can’t run the 10 year old Source engine at 1080p… what have you done, Microsoft?

    • Robbie Yarber

      Funny note: I already had a 770, but sent it back so I could buy the PS4. I’ll gladly sell the Xbone to get another 770.

  • da Boss

    At first i thought the price was ludicrous, 170$ for Infamous? But then i read the one year of PSN+ and the extra controller and realized this bundle is pretty good. I might pick it up, though owning another PS4 does seem redundant.

  • Parhelion88

    Problem is, Titanfall isn’t really “exclusive”, several people (myself included), will just pick it up for PC (and when it gets discounted, I don’t wanna pay full price for a multiplayer-only game. I want a campaign for that price…)

    And I bet there’ll be a big number of buyers on the xbox 360 as well, even if it got zero showing/media attention.

    There’s not much motivation to buy a X1, just for this game. You have options.

    • Matt Dickinson

      Yeah, but what keeps Sony from just putting higher quality versions of PS games on PC?

      They do have a PC division for their online RPGs.

      • Loghorn

        Not anymore, they don’t. They’ve cut the PC division.

    Screw it am going to buy me a Titan fall Xbox one bundle . look forward to that game

      Uh-huh, as if you were ever on the fence and it too this deal to sway you. This troll is such a cliche…

      • kevin

        Already have one , just looking forward to taking advantage of this bundle deal in show of support for the console and game developer .

        • shinitaru

          Then why post it here if you aren’t trolling? This isn’t an XBO or a Titanfall topic.

  • Tony Anderson

    The Titanfall bundle is 10th on the video game bestsellers at Amazon. Ahead of any PS4 console or bundle. Also, Titanfall Xbox One version is 5th …ahead of any other console game. I guess Titanfall and X1 win since we get to use a random website as our basis.

    • AceJack

      PS4 is number one.

  • UsherSucks

    That bundle is no cheaper than all the items sold separately. So what’s the point?

    ps4(400), Infamous(60), an extra ps4 controller(60) and a year of psn (50) = 570

    • Sparkie3222

      Cos some don’t have the system yet.

      • trfe

        Then what’s the point of a bundle if you can just go get the same items for the same price?

  • Derick Watson

    this is what I don’t understand about people who are brainwashed. 1. anything that is American made, we will not support. 2. the Japanese will not support any American products but we as american will hype up the ps4 (something that is not) and bash the xbox one. both systems are unique and very much similar. it is about what you like. stop bashing the xbox one and just play the game

    • shinitaru

      Sure sounds great, and I’m sure the people who bash the PS4 would quit as well, right?
