The Last of Us Part II sold through more than 4m copies during its first weekend. Lifetime sales expectations for the PS4 version alone?

If so I'll update the sales on the game page - https://www.vgchartz.com/game/80977/the-last-of-us-remastered/?region=All Last update we could find when adding the series' sales was 8.15 million for the PS3 version and 11.78 million for the PS4 remastered version.

Barkley said: Hiku said: The original sold 6.27m on PS3 alone, according to VGC. And the Remastered version on PS4 sold 6.27m.Not sure how much better this one will do, but I'll say 9-11 million. TLOU on PS3 sold over 7m and combined with TLOU:R total sales are over 20m. Got a source for that second figure? If so I'll update the sales on the game page -...

25 Minutes Of Unedited Cyberpunk 2077 Gameplay - Anyone Else Worried?

Bofferbrauer2 said: Don't forget that it also says "Work in Progress - Does not represent the final Game" at the top of the screen. Things can and will change until release, otherwise there wouldn't have been ant reasons to delay the game several times. Yeah, but by how much? Am always incredibly sceptical about such disclaimers. It's a good way to make your game bullet proof to...

Most anticipated new release of July?

Mildly interested in Ghost of Tsushima, but not enough to buy it day one. The setting is appealing and it's always great to see a major new IP, but the gameplay is a cause for concern for me. ...

WOW DrDisrespect Banned permanently from Twitch

in General Discussion on 27 June 2020

That seems... unlikely. Surely even Twitch's gradual history of prudishness and censoriousness doesn't extend so far as to cover who one of their streamers has consensual sex with. If that is why he was banned I would've expected his social media to be on full blast calling out Twitch, but it's curiously silent, which suggests the actual reason for the ban is much more sound than that. I don't...

What are the main reasons Why Xbox One Sold Far Less than PS4?

Poorer first party output across the board compared to the 360 era, a lack of major exclusives, and an inability to foster any new blockbuster IPs. ...

When will the switch outsell the ps4?

I don't think it will. I expect it to peter out at around 110 million, which the PS4 has just reached and will be well clear of by the end of this year. ...

If it were just a forum list I might do otherwise, but since it's for the database I only want to add confirmed titles, just in case.I was looking at Everwild today for example, and there's no mention of it for XSX... yet.

These are the games we have so far: PS5: Assassin's Creed: Valhalla Astro's Playroom Battlefield VI Bugsnax Chivalry 2 Chorus Control Cris Tales Deathloop Demon's Souls...

VGC estimates that the Xbox One sold through 47.8m by May 30th. Lifetime sales expectations?

Another interesting one to look back on. When we ran the poll in mid 2018 these were the results - https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=23700445-50 million rnage won the poll, with 51-55 coming in second. Once again the community was very pessimistic. I went with the 51-55 million option back then. I think that's still looking good. It's slightly up yoy so far, but that will probably...

Nintendo Switch shipped 55.77m by March 31st. Lifetime sales expectations?

in Sales Discussion on 01 June 2020

Good time to ask this again. It's almost 2 years since I did the first Switch sales total poll of the week - https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=237351That time around the 66-80 million mark was the most popular option, with 81-95 a very close second. Both now seem very under-optimistic, but that's with the benefit of hindsight. I went with 96-110 at the time and I think that's still...
