Infamous Second Son and Titanfall Boosting Console Sales in the UK

Infamous Second Son and Titanfall Boosting Console Sales in the UK

March has been quite an active month for game releases but maybe more importantly both Microsoft and Sony have released their all-important system sellers.

MCV is reporting that Sony has enjoyed a 106% increase in PS4 sales since the launch of Infamous Second Son last week. These impressive sales numbers have shot Infamous Second Son straight to the top of the UKIE GfK Charts, surpassing Metal Gear V: Ground Zeroes. MCV was not willing to divulge what retailer is reporting these numbers but they have substantiated that it is from a trusted retailer source.

For those keeping score at home, Microsoft. who are fresh off the heals of releasing the much anticipated Titanfall. have also enjoyed tremendous success with hardware sales. They reportedly had a 96% increase in sales, which is still 10% less than what Sony is reportedly to have moved. Since the release of Infamous Second Son and Metal Gear, sales of Titanfall have dropped by 73%, which puts EA’s mech shooter in the third spot on the UK Charts. The question is, did Titanfall alone push these numbers or was it coupled with the fact that Microsoft also reduced the price of the Xbox One in the UK. The Xbox One now sells for £399.99 in the UK.
