inFamous: Second Son pre-orders higher than The Last of Us

Pre-orders for upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive inFamous: Second Son are reportedly higher than last year's PS3 blockbuster The Last of Us at the same point prior to launch, Sony has revealed. 

“We have high expectations for Infamous: Second Son and are excited by the level of pre-orders which are exceeding that of The Last of Us at this point in the run up to its launch,” said SCE UK product manager Josh Walker. “We can already see it benefiting from the goodwill and of buzz surrounding the PlayStation 4 and expect Second Son to be the biggest game in the Infamous series to date."

Specific numbers weren't revealed comparing the two games but given the success of The Last of Us, it's encouraging to see a game on the PS4 — which has considerably less units out in the wild — challenge one of last year's biggest blockbuster games. 

InFamous: Second Son is easily one of the PS4's biggest exclusives to date and Sony is sparing no expense in promoting the super hero title. Second Son will reportedly see a multi-million dollar TV and video on-demand campaign as well as a month-long cinema push. The highly game is due out on March 21, 2014, exclusively for PS4.
