And awesome for us players, because new & more games will be developed in the future
The story of Elli and Joel in part 2 is just as impressive and interesting as in part 1. I love it! =)
Gameplay, graphics, animation, attention to detail and atmosphere is incredible. The soundtracks are also wonderful, especially in the quiet moments.

By the way: Head of Xbox Phil Spencer responded to the tweet congratulating Naughty Dog on the success of the game. "Congrats to you and the team on the success with a really great game," said Spencer.

All press is good press. Even through all the leaks and divisive story elements it got people talking. This was always hyped to be the crown jewel of PS4 so these numbers do fall in line with the hype. Still skeptical of the legs but otherwise congrats to a solid week 1.

Are you still sticking with your 6 million lifetime prediction on PS4?

OT

Great sales and well deserved....not sure what all the bad mouthing of the game is about or the hate. But the game is EXCELLENT so far!

Ya I suppose I’m not. Didn’t expect such a high opening week. 



 

 

6 million LTD? XD

That's about as bad a prediction as I've ever seen for a game on these boards. It's even worse than the worst GT5 predictions of the late '00s.

Why not? It was reported long ago that it had more pre-orders than all previous Sony exclusives.

Those were great, and the legs were superb it kept selling and selling breaking milestones that people said would be impossible. And if we consider the prologue as well it probably was the most profitable GT game, sales it was the highest one.

Thanks man, appreciate the added salt in the wound lol. Severely overestimated the divisive story aspects on the fanbase. In the end they are but a vocal minority. 



 

 

Never thought id say it, but neil pulled it off with Abby. She's an amazing character.



Great Sales, good for the producers, and wait for the best game for then: Uncharted 5!

My favorite sony series. 



And had a 80% drop on weak 2. Its behaving kinda like a block buster movie that disapointed it audience (aka BvS and Star Wars), super high numbers on weak 1 based on hype and super strong weak 2 drops. 80% is acctualy kinda catastrophic tbh, even these blockbusters tend to have a 65-70% drop. The game has an unexcusably bad story that is beyond cliche, manipulative and super on the nose, disguised as some sophisticated and intelectual thing. It also has more holes in it than a Swiss cheese, ppl attacking those who think the game is bad and calling them bigots and watnot doe snot understand at all where the criticism is comming from.
