    Infamous bundles outselling Titanfall bundles at GS.

    http://www.dualshockers.com/2014/02/...llers-ranking/



    Apparently the hype for*inFAMOUS: Second Soncombined 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.

    Think he is talking about the titanfall bundle. But yeah, I imagine it will catch up and overtake the Infamous bundle eventually.

    Titan Fall on 3 systems or just Xbox One? I think One vs 4 and infamous has a bloody good chance.

    Not really hard to believe, ps4's are hard to find so it doesn't really matter if it's a stand alone box or a bundle, people are buying it

    The Infamous SS PS4 bundle comes with greater value too, can't deny that!

    This is true, if most other retailers are sold out of the standard stock and the only way to a PS4 is through the inFamous bundle (although i'm sure most won't mind XD) then high sales will be a given.

    I wasn't expecting that. Especially considering the amount of hype that's surrounding Titanfall compared to ISS.

    I do expect sales for TF to top ISS though. If it doesn't, MS should be worried.

    Edit:Where are the TitanFall commercials? The game is due next week and MS normally are on their job when it comes to promoting exclusives. For EA to want TitanFall to be the next big thing, they sure aren't in a hurry to push it as they do with the battlefield series marketing. I'm not sure who's at fault here.
