Prototype vs. Infamous



July 17, 2009 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: ATVI , SNE

No Contest Folks!   PROTOTYPE  Slaughtered INFAMOUS!

MAY (debut) Sales for Infamous:   175,000  copies    Playstation 3.

JUNE (debut) Sales for Prototype:  491,000 copies  Xbox360.
                                                   600,000 copies total (multiplatform wide)

That's the advantages of releasing a video game across multiple platforms versus releasing a game for just the worst performing in sales video game console Playstation 3.

Subtracting out the XBOX360 sales figure for June we have a net total of 109,000 copies sold in other platforms.  Hey... I'll take that kind of performance any day.

We could see close to 1 million copies sold by August for Prototype and Infamous may not even have come close to half a million.

Prototype is definitely ATVI's  "Bailout" in case of a future dismal  Christmas Season for their Premium Video Game titles:  Tony Hawk + Guitar Hero + DJ Hero 

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2  would be the other Bailout card....

I'm also bullish on Wolfenstein 3D coming out next month.  That game looks insanely good if it plays as well as it looks.
