Prediction: The Last of us 2 to sell 5 million first week.

Forums - Sony Discussion - Prediction: The Last of us 2 to sell 5 million first week.

It is possible but only when it is released on the PS4 and not during holiday season.

Should it be a PS5 launch title then the required install base is missing and if it should be released in October/November there are too many other AAA titles released.

Well, ND's decision to exploit lesbians at E3 for attention certainly worked and men love lesbians so... I say five million easily.

I'm curious what you mean by this? 

That's basic beginners advice. Beginners get so embroiled in plot and story they forget the most important aspect of writing, which is the characters. 

Not so sure Faulker would agree with the idea of the "simple story". There's really no such thing as guidelines when it comes to good writing.

Of course there were many examples that go against the grain. These are just basic rules for writers. If someone can write a successful story with simple characters and cliques while on their soap box, then all power to them, but it's highly unlikely they'll ever get published.

It depends. Are we talking popular fiction or are we talking literature? If it's pop fiction, sure, you probably want to think in a more narrow, preconceived, structured and time-tested way. But if someone aspires for something more, and is great at it, then rules need to go out the window because they'll just clog up any and all creative pathways. 

If someone is brilliant enough, they'll get their work published. It might not net them a mansion or movie rights, but it'll get published.

These are basic rules, followed by 99% of all writers, including the greats. How long have you been writing, how many writers have you met, how many writers have you spoken too, how many books on writing have you read and how many writing courses have you been on?

FIrts week I dont know, but it will surely sell at least 12 million lifetime.
I have mixed feelings about part 2. Part 1 is one of my favorite games ever. But I dont like the direction they are taking with part 2.



Ambitious but possible. I'm sure they're gonna ramp up marketing to the max and have reviews come out early enough to ensure it will sell like crazy.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

I can see it doing much less than God Of War. I also can see the game banned in multi countries....



5 millions is very high expectation but for now i bet 4-4.5mln. People should understand how huge this game is. And after all this controversions game's got attention and free marketing.
