Japan Sales

The Last of Us PS3 - 129,983 FW,   235,571 LT
The Last of Us PS4 - 29,156 FW,     124,523 LT

The Last of Us Part 2 - 194,000 FW,  260,500 LT

Already outperformed the original game, and no doubt with a much higher digital sales ratio.

Since when is 260,500 more than 360,094?

Why would you combine the sales of the standard and the remaster when making a comparison about the sequels performance to the original game? The remaster was released a year later on a system with no backwards compatibility, and no doubt received many sales from double dippers.

Use common sense.

Though if you want we can use your rules, because if TLOU2 gets a ps5 release too then that means TLOU2 will sell double the original game in Japan, wow what an incredible performance.

I know this doesn't fit your narrative of this game bombing so I'm sorry about that.

This is a very niche game sales forum that is likely to draw individuals who are passionate about exactly that.

What a very odd comment, particularly given the context.

There's a difference between being interested in sales, and having it affect your happiness. It's not a weird comment if you realize the implications of the other posts.

What's weird is that you find my comment weird. That's pretty weird.

Sure, a spectrum of interest. 

Some people would call posting on this website sad. Or having a video game hobby sad.

It's interesting to see where you draw a line.



A thing of beauty, strength, and grace lies behind that whiskered face.

I draw the line at sales making you sad.

I don't find it interesting, I think it's obvious.

Massive drop off, i wonder how mad is sony rigth now with Neil "Crunchman".



34 years playing games.

 

Amazing that in a thread about the fastest selling PS4 exclusive ever, selling 4m in it's first weekend, there are still people fighting to show that the game is a sales dissapointment. What a sad joke. The reason I stopped coming here for the past few months.

What narrative are you talking about? The guy just asked a question.

What's amazing to me is how personally you're taking peoples' comments about game sales. Chill out mr. mayor.

His previous posts trying to say the game is a failure because it is performing terribly in Japan and that the NA games market is a mirror of the Japanese market. It's easy to tell the rational from the non-rational. Those that are discussing normally, and those that are just projecting their own wishes.

Way to cherry pick my comments... I said the game on the PS4 will not have the legs to get to the 10+ million mark because a PS5 version will be announced and a lot of people will be waiting for that...

Let me get you straight, you want to burn at the stake a user who posted 2 questions so far on a factual post about japan sales?

1st question by him: Is that Japan?

2nd question by him: Since when is 260,500 more than 360,094?

As easy as it might be to you who is being normal and who isn't, it's super easy to me those who take this too seriously and can't tolerate anything bad being said about the game. It makes it beguilingly obvious to me when it's a sales thread, which is all numbers, and a user can't tolerate two questions with no opinion attached to them.

Let it go

Two questions? He made about 15 posts in this thread. Since when did I say burn at the stake?

Way to blow things out of proportion. And Yes I'm done.

Literally just said he has a narrative about the games sales and you think I want to burn him at the stake? lol. But I guess you are pushing your own narrative in this thread about people being too invested in games sales. xD
