Because when Sony talks about copies sold, they are actually talking about copies distributed, sold in stores and not to players.
Ok... so in under two months a game has at least sold over 5Munits. And you believe it will never pass 8M total units sold?
You would do well to not allow your biases cloud your judgment.
When TLOU2 makes the announcement of its 10M sale around this time next year, I hope you would be able to come back here and say you were wrong.
And I don't even get some people...what does "huge price drop" mean? All PS games gets a price drop, thas actually a good thing, yet you make it sound like a bad thing. And you really think sony would make a "PS5" version of a game that you and play on the PS5 by default? At best they just release a free patch for it, as a way to spur sales of the game again. I expect them to do that for a lot of their first-party titles.
And of a game that they are claiming isn't selling well.
Sell over 4M in 3 days, but won't ever pass 8M.
Also not sure how precise that website is since it was 3.3M player count by the time it would have sold over 4M per Sony info.
Ghost of Tsushima similar, Sold 2.4M on the first 3 days but there it is at 1M.
And GoT have 1.99M after 3 days.
Distributed 4M, solded 3.3M
Distributed 2.4M, solded 1.99M.
