No. As explained, it is typical. 

Can't it be both typical and a lot?

The 'a lot' portion is irrelevant, because this is no different, percentage wise, than any other big game. It only makes sense to point it out if the drop is considerably worse than typical. Unless we're gonna say "oof that's a lot" to every release like this, it is a meaningless statement.



                                                                                                             

Well, legs, of course, won't be the same for one simple reason: it opened WAY above the first entry. This is absolutely the norm in the industry, and pretty much in-line with every successful sequel ever released.
OT: Nice to see the first one up there. I absolutly adored that game

No, it's not typical. It's a sign of the bad word of mouth. Next week we'll see a 120% drop as people rush to stores to get refunds.



Signature goes here!

Great game and with enough pulling power to bump the original for people that want to savor it before playing TLOU2.

And if everything is a lot, nothing is a lot. Because that is a word reserved for comparative measurement.

It'll be the first negative sales reported on VGC. A milestone, really.

The Last of Us 2 has set an annual record in the UK and Germany. And In other countries, part 1 is rising higher in the charts too! :) It is interesting to see how many people are playing The Last of Us for the first time, currently.

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.

TLOU: Part II is doing so well the original got a boost!

who knows, maybe even the Uncharted series will get a boost just because it is a Naughty Dog Game :D
