I've noticed that the bar set by this game's detractors keeps getting moved. First it was "wait for the reviews". Then the reviews were outstanding. Then it was "wait for the sales". Now the first sales data is in and it points to an outstanding launch. Now it's "wait for the legs". I'm sensing a pattern here.

What sane detractor would ever say "wait for the reviews" on a woke game?  You could spit in the box and ship it instead of the game, as long as the box says a bunch of woke talking points, the professional game reviewers would still give it 10/10.  They would have literally been fired if they did anything else but praise the game.  

Unless you meant user reviews.  Which I don't think I even need to mention given how theres already SJWs screaming at the top of their lungs about how unfair the reviews are.  Despite the fact that apparently Europe got the game 3 days early so they did in fact have a chance to play.  

And as I've stated before, the sales aren't in.  Day one are always sold out.  Just like the next Playstation console will sell out day one just like the next Nintendo will sell out day one.  Everything big sells out day one.  If it DIDN'T sell out day one, that would have been the apocalypse right there.  

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.

I have avoided all spoilers so I cannot confirm this yet (still playing and enjoying the game), but I think the biggest controversial point seems to be from the leaks (since a lot of people bombing it have not even played the game).  I also gather that it has to do with the end of the game.

But again, I cannot confirm at this time.  I would rather enjoy a good game and have it ruined at the end, than tarnish my experience now by spoiling it.  Or conversely, get to the end and find out that the entire thing is overblown and taken out of context without knowing exactly what goes down during Ellie's travels.  Like they are missing a piece of the puzzle.

Like I said, I will judge for myself when I finish the game.  I worked hard to go in blind on this one.

AC could still sell millions at full $60 after several years, that is the difference.

Nah, you’re simply trying to turn this into an us versus them and it’s not happening. Stop while you’re behind.

1.The title.

2.What I said is correct, right?

Do you expect it will sell 11 million in 11 weeks like AC?

That was shipped.

So could TLOU

HoangNhatAnh said:

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

AC is already being bundled as well.

Imagine being so insecure that TLOU beat AC in one region that you go on the defensive like this and get every single post wrong

The 1st game got price cut then being give away for free many times after 3-4 years. Are you saying that TLOU 2 could still sell millions at full $60 after 4 years?

What you said was unnecessary, so stop highlighting it.

To be fair, the title of the thread is just asking for trouble in this regard isn't it? Not that agree with this guy pitting the games against eachother.

Not really. One is simply pointing out that it sold higher numbers than another and he is bringing up a totally irrelevant point to that fact. It doesn’t need to happen.

Sorry, how exactly is putting "beating Animal Crossing" in the title, any more relevant than mentioning AC will still outsell TLoUII with a $60 pricetag for several years?

This thread is in Sony Discussion and Animal Crossing is not a Sony game. If it's the biggest launch in UK then there's no need to mention any other game, as it's already a given they'd be lower. So what's the merit of mentioning it in the title?

We're not discussing his input any further. 

As for the title, it was in the tweet (and highlighted in the OP from the original source). It's comparing the previously highest selling title under the circumstances. Yes it is relevant. If moving the thread to Gaming Discussion helps, I can do that.

Edit: We also mention it in an article on the site (as it is mentioned virtually everywhere that's discussing it).

It is a big deal and takes nothing away from what Animal Crossing achieved.

The article you linked says "Outsells Animal Crossing: New Horizons by 40% - Sales". That's relevant info because it gives us an actual basis for overall sales, rather than just mentioning "beat Animal Crossing".

The tweet from OP also mentioned "bigger than the Uncharted 4 launch in boxed sales alone", "and comfortably bigger than its predecessor", but neither of those were necessary for the thread title.

I still don't see it. Just seems arbitrary at best.

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.
