I expect good sales for this game. I also expect it to be the fastest selling title from Naughty Dog.

I dont think it'll beat Uncharted 3. For one thing Uncharted 3 released during the holiday season and this year the gaming industry sales estimates have all been lower than expected for every new release.

No doubt The Last of Us will be very successful, but I dont see it possible to set any sales records with a new gen a few months away and the way the gaming industry has been in a rut with declining sales

I disagree TLOU has the perfect opportunity to out sell Uncharted 3 the hype behind it is huge and the advertising has been very good.Summer time is a perfect time with very few games coming out with PS4 coming out this holiday season TLOU has no competition.

It could also work out as the Last of us being the only big release until september will give it high inital sales and with no more high profile games until septmeber it'll have some legs. Not being in the crowded holiday season can be a good thing since this is a new IP.

Edit: Damn GamersHeaven beat me to it, lol

Uncharted 3 did 3.8 million day one. I don't see TLOU doing that well but maybe over time it'll sell more.

@SoapShoes Uncharted 3 SHIPPED 3.8 million to retailers day one. It SOLD TO CONSUMERS 1.36 million in it's first week.

The Last of Us won't come close to that and if you expect it to then you have to be deluded. It will sell around 825K first week and 3-4m lifetime. It will not have the holiday launch or mass bundling benefits the Uncharted games have and it's a new IP late in the console cycle. Come on, be realistic.

And the hype is only huge amongst core gamers who spend a lot of time on internet forums, in the real world it's not that hyped.

The most hyped games of the year so far that have release or will release very soon:

It will be profitable since start,but i don't think it will outsold uncharted 3

I hope it sells like crazy. I haven't played the game yet and i'm already crazy a sequel hahaha.

That's how much faith i have in naughty dog.

DJMarty1656d ago

Have just pre-ordered mine from shopto, can't wait:)

jjb19811656d ago

I think it will outsell uncharted 3 because I think there are more than 3.8 million naughty dog fans out there willing to buy day 1

shinrock1656d ago

It will be a Critical hit,but not a sales hit. But I guess that's all the fan boys wanted. For tlou to be loved but not brought. Too bad .
