Forums - Sales Discussion - TLOU2 Was UK's Best-Selling Game in June, Outsold Rest of Top 10 Combined

If the drop is around 75-80% WW for second week, that means sales are almost a million, very impressive.

I'm curious to know US sales on 1st and 2nd week. Some people are saying the drop from week 1 to week 2 in uk (80%) was way above the expected for a triple A first party sony game. No idea if it makes sense or not.

It's not, exactly in line with Uncharted 4.

No it isn't way above expected and was pointed more than once in several threads. UC4 drop was 78%.

Total game sales for the month was 1.24 million. I wonder how much the top 10 contributes to that figure.

And that's just physical box sales. Earlier this year PS4 had a 66% digital attach rate so overall it's doing crazy numbers. 



I wonder why people are still buying TLOS1. People forgot to download it when it was free on psn?
