Passing Animal Crossing is the relevant info. We can argue semantics about the OP's thread title, but it is what it is. I don't see much wrong with it, unlike comparing prices of games that have no relevance to the discussion.

Um, TLOU2: 195k launched opening higher around ~50k than AC in UK.

Japan, on the other hand, AC 1.9M vs ~ TLOU2 150k 

Should there is a thread about Japan sales number of both games too, don't you agree?

Do we have official Japan numbers?

the game is sold out at Amazon Japan by the way!!

Dude, what exactly are the "woke talking points" you're referring to? I'm more than 10 hours into this game so far and am finding it deeply, deeply centrist politically. (Feel free to use the spoiler tags.) Somebody needs to actually answer this question concretely for me with something other than "there are lesbians" for me to buy it.

Spoiler!
He's probably talking about Ellie being gay and in a gay couple with another girl at some point. Can't find anything else which could otherwise drive him up the wall for "woke talking points".

Even some people on this forum were upset about that part in the early trailers, so that may be one thing.

⚠️
But for everyone here, I don't think accusing reviewers or consumers of favoring this game due to any supposed 'woke talking points' is productive. Such discussions won't lead anywhere unless you can compliment said accusation with evidence.
And I'd prefer if you take such comments to this thread instead of derailing the sales thread: https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread/242679/possible-spoilers-inside-the-agenda-and-political-discussion-of-naughty-dog/

Though for the record I don't see how this game could properly market itself in such a way, when the vast majority of people that buy it will avoid spoilers like the plague.
And the only thing I can recall from trailers is gay people existing. Which isn't a talking point. That's just how the world is.

Consider this a thread warning.

But we compare both games in a UK sales thread, why not compare them in a JP sales thread too? I'm just asking, you know. Unless there is a legit reason why a thread about it couldn't be made, of course.

Last of Us outselling animal crossing is note worthy in the UK it wasn't a given, the same can't be said for Japan. It's pretty simple.

But i thought EU is Sony land?

You can explain the reason why Nintendo games keep selling millions at $60 after 4 years then.

Not so sure what you mean? So you think its  a consumer friendly thing to let your game stay @60bucks? Has nothing to do with quality if thats what your thinking. 

Its the same reason why the ps4 is still 299,99. It sells,but does not mean its consumer friendly. 

Majority of PS4 owners don't complain about it, so do Nintendo ones.

Absolutely we can, there is nothing wrong with that, and I am more than willing to participate. But let's make a separate thread for that discussion, and not steer the one for the UK off

This is exactly what i want to hear

Not that I know off, but we should be getting them fairly soon.

Someone said TLOU2 will have aweful legs.  Not having AC kind of legs is not the same as having terrible legs. TLOU 1 had great legs, so there is no reason to doubt the same for part 2  which will be BC with PS5. 

It will reach 20mil with many price cuts and give away like the 1st game, of course.

99% of successful games with great legs cannot reach 20m despite of any kind of price cut or bundle so how exactly does this support your argument that it will have terrible legs?

TLOU is not a competitive franchise in the Japan so such a thread would be pointless.

It'll be like someone making a thread that THLOU2 sold 20x Xenoblade in the UK, no one would do it because it would be a dumb comparison. Animal Crossing however was a monster launch across the globe, so the comparison gives you an idea of how big TLOU2's launch was in the UK because AC was another huge launch recently.

Never understood why people think its a good thing nintendo games almost never drop in price,its so anti consumer.

Why pay more if ya can pay less.

Never understood the " yes it sold 20mill but not at 60$"

Most games cant even sell a 1mill.

You can explain the reason why Nintendo games keep selling millions at $60 after 4 years then.

There is less competition on the Switch in terms of third party releases.
