12-13 million for PS4.

I prefer the first game though this one is not far behind.

less than 7M. Now that the game is out there and everyone knows about the story it wont sell much.

TLOU 2 topped the charts 2 weeks in a row and selling like gangbusters in UK. Outselling all top 10 titles combined in June.

With no competition, I highly doubt it.



God of War sold 10 Million in a year despite opening 20 to 25% lower than TLoU2.

While the PS5 and inevitable PS5 updated version will cut the legs of this, I think it will still *at least* match God of War's trajectory for the next 6-12 months.

I prefer the original game and I expect this one to top out on PS4 at around 12 to 13 Million.



                            

This will sell massive numbers. It's already 4 million first week.

You then have to factor in: multiplayer being released, the PS5 version, price-cuts and the potential for a boost from the HBO series.

It will sell 20 million easily. (I'm thinking maybe in the 10-12 million range on PS4.)



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

Around the Network

I voted 12.0-13.9 million on PS4, I think it'll settle between 11.5-12.5m. I think it will be mostly front-loaded, negative word of mouth will stop legs from being as good as other Naughty Dog games. I doubt Sony will remaster the game for PS5 since the PS4 version will be playable on the new console anyway most likely with resolution & framerate improvements.

The first game is far superior.



I don’t see it reaching 10 m, At least on ps4, the word of mouth is awful And people have been trashing the game relentlessly online, there are also many reports of massive Amounts of used copies in uk and Japan, the CEOs must regret deeply all the creative freedom they gave Druckmann .

Got a source for that second figure? If so I'll update the sales on the game page - https://www.vgchartz.com/game/80977/the-last-of-us-remastered/?region=All

Last update we could find when adding the series' sales was 8.15 million for the PS3 version and 11.78 million for the PS4 remastered version.

Edit - I think you've just misremembered what the 20 million announcement was for. It was for both versions combined, not the PS4 on its own.

Yes, combined with TLOU:R sales are 20m.

Ah good. You had me worried there for a minute xD



Have played for about 10-15 hours, this game is very similiar to red dead redemption 2. It's just slow and boring, except for that thingie at the start almost nothing has happened except killing humans/zombies the entire time.

Word to mouth will happened and sales will be worse than expected, I voted 9-9.9 million.

I voted 9 - 10m. I'm not sure if we'll ever officially get the total amount though.

Hasn't PS been fairly transparent with sales figures? I suppose they didn't have much to say about the Vita, so there is some precident for not getting official numbers. I don't see this being another of those times however. I'm skeptical of the legs TLOU 2 will have, but highly doubt it will amount to a sales embarrassment, which is what it would need to be for sales updates to cease.

Never know though. I might owe you a Coke on this one.
