Without a huge price's drop and/or PS5 remaster (lol), 100% TloU2 can't pass the 8M's gap.

Well cool that you think this, because it probably is near that already.

That you spout whatever non-sense you want I know, but still have no idea of the purpose of what you said.

Relax, since he said GoT should have been sold 20 mil which is basically Nintendo level, i'm just curious if Nin games sell 40 mil or even more, will he think Sony games should sell like that too for fairness? 

I still don't understand the point or relevance with regard to this thread.

What is Nintendo level, and what has fairness got to do with anything?

If Nintendo games sell 20M or 40M that's great for them. If hey sell 5M or 10M that's great too. How is it relevant to a thread talking about how a non-Nintendo game will or should sell?

What you are doing is derailing the thread, and how you are going about it is making you come across as a fanboy. Not that there is anything wrong with that (we like what we like), but you are being the bad kinda fanboy. Cause I am sure not a single person here mentioned Nintendo anything before you started with it.

Unless of course, someone saying that a game should or could sell as much as 20M reads to you as NINTENDO. 

I am sure I have been on these forums for over 5 years, and I probably have never posted in a Nintendo/xbox centric thread in all that time. The only times I mention them are in threads where there is a direct comparison between one or the other and usually in relation to the Playstation. Point is, like most here I have my preferences (and usually anyone that claims they don't are lying), but I don't go around being an ass about it in places or areas where it's not warranted. That's the difference between being a good fanboy and a bad unhealthy one.

So please, stop derailing the thread. You are making an argument or case that no one has brought up or is interested in in this thread.

Selling 20mil mean entering Nintendo level, just like when someone said Nintendo games could only be deserve to be GOTY if they spent the same money as Sony. Spending much more money but sometimes worse reception and almost always worse sales, should i say, is this jealousy?

Ok... so in under two months a game has at least sold over 5Munits. And you believe it will never pass 8M total units sold?

You would do well to not allow your biases cloud your judgment. 

When TLOU2 makes the announcement of its 10M sale around this time next year, I hope you would be able to come back here and say you were wrong.

And I don't even get some people...what does "huge price drop" mean? All PS games gets a price drop, thas actually a good thing, yet you make it sound like a bad thing. And you really think sony would make a "PS5" version of a game that you and play on the PS5 by default? At best they just release a free patch for it, as a way to spur sales of the game again. I expect them to do that for a lot of their first-party titles.

Sell over 4M in 3 days, but won't ever pass 8M.

Also not sure how precise that website is since it was 3.3M player count by the time it would have sold over 4M per Sony info.

Ghost of Tsushima similar, Sold 2.4M on the first 3 days but there it is at 1M.

Because when Sony talks about copies sold, they are actually talking about copies distributed, sold in stores and not to players.
And GoT have 1.99M after 3 days.

Distributed 4M, solded 3.3M

Distributed 2.4M, solded 1.99M.

Nope, that is wrong.

Both numbers from Sony were sell-through.

Wrong, it is sold through PSN plus estimative of sold through on retail (in some cases it will be very near shipped).

Sure there would be a difference between sold through and played because of logistics taking some time for end user to receive.

The site simply estimate total of users based on the trophy percentage and other methods, they can't really measure how many were sold.
