inFamous: Second Son pre-orders higher than The Last of Us, Sony confirms

Friday, 7th March 2014 10:31 GMT By Dave Cook

inFamous: Second Son hits PS4 on March 21, and Sony has just confirmed that it has been pre-ordered more times than Naughty Dog’s PS3 swansong The Last of Us.

It follows confirmation that there will be a The Last of Us movie adaptation with a script penned by the game’s writer Neil Druckmann.

MCV reports that Second Son is due to get a million pound TV and video on demand marketing campaign, and trailers in cinemas. It makes sense, seeing as it’s the first big, triple-a exclusive since PS4 launched.

In a statement, SCE UK product manager Josh Walker. said, “We have high expectations for Infamous: Second Son and are excited by the level of pre-orders which are exceeding that of The Last of Us at this point in the run up to its launch.

“We can already see it benefitting from the goodwill and of buzz surrounding the PlayStation 4 and expect Second Son to be the biggest game in the Infamous series to date.”

Will you be picking it up? Stay tuned for my final impressions soon.

    makes sense, lack of a big library for the PS4 makes people buy what’s available, The Last of Us came out very late in the PS3′s life circle which could mean ppl didn’t pre order it do to many reasons, not fussed with an system that’s to be about out dated, not into that kind of games and there is plenty more fish in the water to choose from or even do to its release date, I didn’t pre order because I was away on a Festival, didn’t know how much money I going to spend over all so I put TLoU aside for another week. How many ppl would have been on holidays and such? More then one factor is pointing to the lack of pre-order numbers.

    It doesn’t surprise me because inFamous has history. The previous two were great success. TLoU was a new never heard of game before. The only thing going for it before release was who made it.
