Week 12, 2017, Monster Hunter XX came out for the 3DS, it sold 1+ million copies. 3DS hardware fell from 42k the previous week to 39k that week. Monster Hunter and the 3DS are more popular than the PS4 and TLOU. I don't understand these "this game didn't more hardware" for consoles past 72 months...its a hard needle to move for a console of that age, no matter the game.
Great that you found a rare example. But generally it's a fact that a big triple A game moves hardware. The question is how much. Nobody says anything about age.
