Prototype vs. Infamous
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.
