Infamous: Second Son Boosts UK PS4 Sales 106 Percent
PS4 sales jumped 106 percent in the UK following the release of Infamous: Second Son.
The boost, which was reported by an anonymous retail source, coincided with the game’s own strong sales which left it in the number one spot of the UK’s gaming charts. PS4 sales have previously been strong in the region, but were briefly eclipsed by the Xbox One which saw a 96 percent boost in its own retail performance following the release of the highly anticipated Titanfall.
Second Son’s sales have also overshadowed other recent releases. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes was, up until recently, enjoying a top position on the UK charts until it was supplanted by Second Son. In fact, as far as PS4 games are concerned, the only other more successful title on the platform has been Killzone: Shadow Fall which was, of course, a launch game. Second Son is, nonetheless, the first PS4 title to claim the top slot in the UK charts.
