Pikmin 3 - August
The Wonderful 101 - September
Legend of Zelda WW HD/Sonic Lost World - October
Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze - November
Super Mario 3D World/Wii U Fit U - December

Wii U will be fine. The Xbox One is $499, people aren't going to pick between those two systems. Either you want a Wii U or you want a Xbox One...or you want both.

The Wii U isnt going to be fine.

Why would people choose a console that so far has been pretty awful, With little to no support from first party or third party developers.

So true, I know a handful of people who can't find the last of us anywhere. And they have been looking everyday. How could they only sell 1.17 million if its completely sold out. Weird.

Digital sales. And it is outselling Uncharted 3 at retail and is in higher demand.

One thing is for sure, ND outdid themselves again.
GDDR6_2014  +   640d ago
So it didn't do better than uncharted 3
SoapShoes  +   640d ago
That's fine, it still did very well... But then again it's VGChartz, I'd wait till official numbers from Sony/ND as they had UC3 crazy under tracked compared to the official numbers.

Not according to your trusty VGCZ source.

MGS4 did better on Day 1 then that did all week. This was back in 2008 when the PS3 was still $499 and $599. Console sells went up 4003% as well back then.
aceitman  +   640d ago
That was 2 days worth of sales

TLOU sold 1.3 million copies in about 3 days, and that doesn't include Walmart, Amazon or Digital. So let's wait for the full deal, but that is still incredible for any game to sell that much. Naughty Dogs deserves it.
ZBlacktt  +   640d ago
Some people really need to look before posting..... again you two, let me educate you on OLD news.

http://www.vgchartz.com/art...

and Nuka please, spare me son... again MGS4 did this when the console was TWICE as much. So just go...

As of December 2009 a year and a half later after it first came out, the game had sold over 5 million copies worldwide, as stated on page 5 of Konami's 3rd Quarter Financial Results. This milestone labeled it as the best-selling PlayStation 3 exclusive until the release of Gran Turismo 5.

Again, no Naughty Dog game is going to touch this and I love Naughty Dog games. I've plated them all a long time ago and was the number one player in the world in Co-Op for the first 6 months in UC2. I can prove it.

Well considering its the last stretch of this generation. TLOU did pretty well.
PopRocks359  +   640d ago
For a new IP, selling more than the latest superhero flick RELEASED ON THE SAME WEEKEND is a pretty big deal.
tracyllrkn  +   640d ago
I think you have to take in account that it came out on a Friday. So it's missing two days worth of sales.
Prcko  +   640d ago
tell me one new IP with 1,1 million sales in 2 days?
you won't find it
seepamann  +   640d ago
Superb No Sell Very Well TLOS deserve it great game by naughty dogs & Sony
seepamann  +   640d ago
Sorry Super no means superb numbers
princeofthabay  +   640d ago
Isn't that just one day of sales sine it came out on that Friday?
