June 11, 2009 // 10:36 pm - It appears that InFamous has set the standard for new IPs that are exclusive to the PS3 in the US.

Below are some stats, courtesy of VGChartz and NPD, as follows:

• InFamous (May, 2009) - 176K first week
• Resistance (Nov., 2006) - 42K first week
• Motorstorm (March, 2007) - 107K first week
• Warhawk (August, 2007) - 70K first week
• Lair (August, 2007) - 69K first week

A trailer before the opening weekend of Terminator Salvation, and there definitely were TV ads - I almost fell out of my chair when I saw one. No, Sony did a lot more promotion of this one than they usually do.

I'm glad inFamous is getting good sales, it deserves it. Hope it has legs...

I'm quite surprised with these results for inFamous actually. Let's face it, there was no real hype prior to its release. No TV ads, nothing big. And yet...

I wonder what sales would God of War 3 bring... above 400K?
