Just got around to finishing this game. Not bad, much better than the first.

Now I'll play Second Son... several years from now.

According to Vgchartz, InFamous (the orginal) has sold more copies in the last 2 years than this. Despite being 2 years older. 25k vs 14k in 2014. What?

Such a shame this didn't do better. IMO this was overlooked because it was a PS3 exclusive. At least in the US. I never understood how done a lot of the critics were on this. Seemed like they were ambivalent about it because it wasn't on their platform of choice. I've played most of the console exclusives on the PS3 and 360, and for me, this is one of the best games of the generation. It'd for sure be in my top 10. What got me is how those guys would gush about crackdown, and then ignore this game. Crackdown was fun, I enjoyed the heck out of it too, but this game is much deeper, with more powers, and a much better story, better graphics, and so on. I get that Crackdown was fun because of the jumping mechanic getting so absurd, but Infamous does what Crackdown did far better in every other way.

Well Infamous 2.29, Infamous 2 1.28=3.57. Maybe at the end of the year with the $200 Black friday bundle, we will see the "True" numbers. I think it probably sold quite well digitally. Yes with Sony buying Suckerpunch it had to have sold better than this. I'd say at least 4million combined 1 and 2.

Why undertracked? Do we have reports from Sony about how many hard copies of the game have been shipped? I hope it has sold more (like close to 2 million) but where's the evidence for it?

I wonder by how much this game is undertracked. This must have sold way more considering that after this game, Sony bought SuckerPunch. Why would they buy the studio if the sequel sells less?? ¨_¨ Did it sold a lot of digital copies?? or did it increase PSN subscriptions considering this was offered as a free game??

Deserves better sales, I hope only 1.24 million is because lots of people bought it off PSN. If there was ever a reason to buy PS Move this is the game.

If I had two compare the original with the sequel, I'd say IF1 was better in terms of story, but slightly. More harder for me to platinum.

IF2 had better graphics, powers and better character design. Much easier to platinum. I was pretty annoyed that Sucker Punch Productions didn't have Blast Shard Sense for Cole in the 1st game. It would have made things less frustrating.

Here's hoping for an IF3 with a even better story and more powers.

Is this game seriously under-tracked on this site? I ask this because on various sites, Podcasts, and interviews I have seen professionals in the industry have stated how InFamous 2 was far more successful financially than it's predecessor. I just don't know who to believe. But I'm guessing they have to have some kind of proof to make such claims.

where are you guys getting your psn numbers? mass effect 2 did 10-15k opening week on psn(according to ea) . lets say this did double that , thats only 30k opening week. no way this sold 900k in digital sales thats absurd. maybe 100-150k but no more. regardless these sales are dissapointing this game needed MUCH better marketing, I am not even sure if they will make a sequel with these sales.

Sony and Suker Punch (wich are now basicaly te same thing) are very pleased with the sales and its probably selling very well digitaly too since its on the PSN top downloads.
