We all know it would sell a massive amount.. it will be more interesting to see week 2 and 3

For sure. The original was hardly divisive. Part 2 very much is. I wonder how many poeple are in my camp: I looked forward to it. Than the whole negativity around the leaks concerned me. So I decided to watch a playthrough on YouTube to see if I like it. I already watched 15-20 hours (hard to tell) and I don't like it at all. So now I won't buy it. Never thought I would skip this game. What a bummer.

So you watched 15-20hrs o a gam you do not like? That's deep.

At this point, it doesn't really matter. The game has already made over $240M guaranteed. And couldn't have cost sony more than $100M to make. Before price cuts start to come in its likely to sell at least another 2M. And I am almost certain it gets bundled with the PS5 sometime in 2021 like the original was bundled with the PS4.

I'm not actually watching the whole thing, but clicking through to get to the major story beats. I care enough to see what happens to the charakters and how things shake out. But I would never pay mony for this.

Same reason I watched season 2, 3 and will watch season 4 of Attack on Titan. I want to see what happens enough to keep going, but I don't really enjoy it and I would never buy the blurays for it.

I guess that is a bit weird.

So you care about the characters, at least enough to see what happens. The gameplay is great, as far as it being a thru person stealth action game.

But you will not pay money fr it because it rubs you the wrong way in a way that has nothing to do with the gameplay or presentation bt duet the kinda themes or the authentic, grotesque and even glamorized depiction of violence it embodies?

Hehe, I hope you know the reasons you hate that game, are the reasons it would end up going down in history as one of the best games ever made and ultimately become a cult classic. It means ND succeeded. 

Now if they really want to push that cult classic angle, they should never make a Part 3. Just make remasters/remakes of part 1 and two and call it a day.

Are you one of those masochists on VGC? People that say they bought a console and hate all the games on it, or that burn 20h of their life on something they are hating but think 60USD is just to much money? Well watching 4 seasons of an Anime that you are not liking is even more strange.

Or a standalone like Left Behind with Tommy and Joel.

Its clear the boycott fell on its face.



Still enjoying it. Well deserved as far as I am concerned.

Over 25h in, near the very end and enjoyed a lot.

Sony just posted on the PlayStation Blog that sales of The Last of Us Part II have exceeded 4 million copies sold through as of June 21. This makes it the fastest selling PS4 exclusive.

"We’re delighted to report that The Last of Us Part II is now the fastest-selling PS4 exclusive ever with more than 4 million copies sold through as of June 21. This milestone would not have been reached without the support from our amazing fans, so on behalf of everyone at SIE, thank you!"

Looks like that Meta Critic outrage brigade was wildly successful. Good job!
