bold: why?

bold2: you speak as if the company's will is capable of making a remaster sell 2m.

1: Because it's one of the best games ever and has gathered a pretty serious amount of attention, add to that a release in the dry summer and you have a pretty easy million seller. Also look at it on Amazon in different countries and if you want look at vgchartz' pre order chart you can also see that the game is doing pretty well.

2: A holiday bundle that includes TLOU is pretty much a safe million added to the game, maybe more. You can always add more bundles to bring the game into more households pretty easy.

bold: not even close

bold 2: if it was an original release, yes.

bold 3: the pre orders chart point to something like 250k FW in Us + Canada, maybe close to 500k global. but it will probably be very front loaded. 1kk is possible, but that's it, a possibility.

bold 4: Not the same thing.

1. Oh, so you played it? No? Then I guess your opinion on this is utterly worthless. You don't get 200 GOTY awards for nothing.

2. Doesn't matter if it's an original release, it's a huge hit made even better and this rerelease has gathered a huge amount of attention.1 million is a given.

3. Oh it will be frontloaded, great and you know that how? Again 1 million is a given.

4. Not the same thing? How? You better not tell me that you don't want to count bundled sales, a sale is a sale. Period.

Zero999 saying the game would sell more if "any arbitrary conditions happens" is funny since he never predict anything right by a couple millions margin. So now I rest safe that sony made the best choice.

I didn't know basic knowledge is now "arbitrary conditions". also saying that I "never predict anything right by a couple millions margin" is a lie AND trying to derail the thread.

Re-releasing The Last of Us right now makes a lot of sense.

Many PS4 owners did not have a PS3 last gen, so these are potential "future customer" for the franchise. They must be likely to be working on a sequel right? (I have not completed the game. Please do not spoil. Just looking for a Yes or No)

Any sales for this Re-master is beneficial. The game has over 5M sales from people who owned a PS3. If TLOU2 releases in a couple years then the potential to grow from the original is greater, since the player base is now larger.

 

Waiting to re-release this AFTER The Last of Us 2 would be a terrible move. Saying it would be better if they worked on something else instead of this makes no sense. It is a great growth opportunity for the franchise. Why would you not take advantage?

Nothing official yet of course, but I'd say yes they are definitely going to continue the franchise on PS4.

I figured with them hitting 6M in sales back in March, they must be thinking of making another.

I expect them to be somewhere near 7M shipped+digital soon. Any new customers from the PS4 remaster only adds to this already quite large number.



iPhone = Great gaming device. Don't agree? Who cares, because you're wrong.

Currently playing:

Final Fantasy VI (iOS), Final Fantasy: Record Keeper (iOS) & Dragon Quest V (iOS)

To add further weight to the "it is a great growth opportunity"   , ND has commented that the remaster has given them a lot of useful data ,  and that the  code has allready been used to great effect in building UC4 .

I never played it and will gladly pay $60 for it. If you don't like the remaster then it's simple. Don't buy it lol

You say your assumptions are basic knowledge, yet no one agrees with you... and I'm certain of seeing several threads of yours with WiiU to sell 15M in one FY and other similar predicitions, how is that a lie? And you are accusing me of derailing my own thread just by saying that you reasoning something against the game is a guarantee that the game will do well? How come?

one year being too soon isn't MY assumption, it's common sense/basic knowledge.

how is this a lie "he never predict anything right by a couple millions margin."? simple, it's not true and you know that while saying it. it had the objective to provoke me and isn't related to the thread, thus the derail.
