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

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.”
