"Iz okay to combine SSB WiiU with 3DS numbers to gauge popularity. Iz not okay to do the same with TLoU.. even though unlike SSB, the remaster offers very little to double dippers"

I think the better example would have been GTA5 PS3/360 and PC/XboxOne/PS4 or the Switch Ports of Wii U games.

Makes sense, since people like me bought it 3 times, lulz.

First time, pre-ordered PS3 Survival Edition.
Second time, pre-ordered on PS4 standard physical.
Third time, bought PS4 digital during a flash sale, for the multiplayer, so I wouldn't have to keep switching discs.

The game is evergreen, it will hit 20 million. I also think God Of War will pass 15 million for the same reason.

Yet people still wonder why there's so many remasters each gen



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

I never realized it had sold even close to that. Congratulation Naughty Dog.

It will certainly get another boost just prior to TLOU2 releasing. I wouldn't mind betting it's getting a boost right now. 



 

The PS5 Exists. 


So am I correct in believing that TLOU is probably going to be a bigger franchise? Like, putting two Uncharted games up to two TLOU games?

Massive number.

But I take it that does include the remaster, so they’re actually cheating with this number. Funny, because they wouldn’t need to as both versions alone sold amazing already. This is probably the biggest new IP in decades. Congrats to Naughty Dog and Sony!

So when people were pointing out this game couldn't be included as a PS4 exclusive because it was a remaster, that's NOT cheating but when we are given the number of sales of TLOU it IS cheating. Got it.

Eh?

Nothing touches GTAV and comparing it to Switch ports, which are over 3 years late, is pointless. TLoU remaster was announced not long after the PS3 version and got released just a single year later.

 

A critically acclaimed TLoU 2 should have a sales potential of 15 million. 20 million+ if ported to PS5.



first game I got with my ps4. beat on every difficulty except the last one I think...hmm I never actually played this on my pro now that i think of it and suddenly have the urge to
