Matt Matthews has commented on the potential system-selling prospects for “Destiny,” “inFamous: Second Son” and “TitanFall.” In a long interview with CNET on Nov. 26, the game industry analyst from Gamasutra disclosed that the PS4 and Xbox One won’t likely get price reductions in 2014.
Instead, the two console manufacturers are more likely to bundle video games with the next-generation systems. Matt Matthews believed that “inFamous: Second Son” and “Titan Fall” will be sold separately at first and then be potentially bundled with the hardware in October. You can find some screens of both titles in the slideshow to the left of this article and his comments below:
I would expect Sony and Microsoft to let those exclusives try to move hardware on their own first, during midyear. If there are midyear bundles, I would expect them to consist of launch titles, not new titles.
Matt Matthews also disclosed that Sony and Microsoft expect that “Destiny,” along with the aforementioned “TitanFall,” will drive hardware sales for the next-generation systems. You can find his statement below:
You get to titles like Titanfall in March and Destiny in June and they [Sony and Microsoft] expect those to be drive titles for next-gen platforms.
“TitanFall” is slated to come out for the Xbox One, in addition to the PC and Xbox 360, on March 11 of next year. The PS4 exclusive, “inFamous: Second Son,” will be released ten days later on March 21. Finally, “Destiny” is slated to come out for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in the second quarter of 2014. The new franchise from Bungie, the creator of “Halo,” will feature exclusive contents on the Playstation platforms.
Sony released the PS4 on Nov. 15 while Microsoft launched the Xbox One on Nov. 22. You can order the products from Amazon in the following links: “Destiny,” “inFamous: Second Son,” “TitanFall,” PS4 and Xbox One.
