If you consider the current gaming landscape and the fact that most PS4 owners never played the original title, can we expect a hardware sales spike?
Looks to me like Destiny, with 5 x the pre-orders of TLOU, just on one console, and still 8 weeks out, will sell more systems.
Thats a lot of Destiny on one console :) Wait, weren't you just saying how successful Titanfall was? Man wait til you see 5x TLOU on one console.
TLOU might be a great game. May be even one of the best ever made, as expressed by critics and PS fans alike. But High acclaim and great review scores aren't alone usually the driving force behind why people run out and buy new systems in droves. The type of game and the appeal to the masses, are much more important in driving game sales. People (gamers or critics) saying how great it is will probably work well for those how already own a PS4. I don't see many who already owned a PS3 and were not interested when it had high acclaim then, suddenly rushing out to pickup a PS4 to play it. Xbox fans really don't know what to make of it, because they have no exposure to develop any appeal for it. So what this game needs is advertising that shows the rest of the gaming world the best aspects of the game that would make them want to have the full experience. As great people are saying it is, it may still not catch the attention of a wider audience without possessing the require excitement (hype).
@Bigpappy Thats easier said than done but I get your point. I was actually told to play this from a diehard Xbox fan. I am glad I listened.
@axios: looks to me like you're off-topic, trolling like you usually do. this article has nothing to do with destiny on xbone. can anyone find the current pre-order numbers for TLOU: R? wasn't it something like 7 million or was that the PS3 sales numbers? edit: @eonjay - that's what i thought... so what are/were the remastered pre-order numbers?
7 Million was the PS3 sales.
Response to the title: Really? It comes out tomorrow. No one can answer that question now and we'll know in a few weeks or months.
The same logic can be applied to MOST predictions for any system, for any game, for the rest of the year. These consoles and their games haven't even been out for a year yet, so we just gotta wait and see.
I agree. They title makes it sound like the game has been out and selling systems already, yet it comes out tomorrow
Planet$ide 2 alone was enough for me to get a park ,but it depends, infamous is, so is tlour. Tell you what,.driveclub is a seller.for me. And honestly .a major.selling point is superior multiplats too.
TLOU Remastered will help shipping out PS4s this month.
September's NPD will be intresting.
For those that have never played it, it will be there favourite game this year.
We'll talk about that when we get numbers and proof.
They are already selling the bundle which means that The Last of Us is selling PS4s. How's that? Next stop White PS4 destiny bundle.
As I said, we will talk about that when we get proof and numbers.
TLoU will sell a bunch of consoles. Sony and Naughty Dog were smart bringing it to the PS4. All those 360 people who bought a PS4 will finally get to witness the greatness of Naughty Gods.
Well judging by the number of my freinds who switched from 360 to ps4 already (as in they have a ps4 now), I think it will sell just as well this gen. Whole new 80 million people who now have a fresh start.
This will be my first time playing "The Last of Us" I actually took the risk when Playstation 4 was announced and waited for the announcement. Well it paid off and im less than 30 minures from downloading it. If anyone is down for gaming tonight you can add me. Pathogenickiller (PSN)
Does anyone this Microsoft win even one month of sales vs Sony? Which month do you think and why? I personally feel like PS4 will not be outsold the rest of the year. 2015 is going to be epic as well. The only month in question for me will be Uncharted 4 VS Halo 5.
I doubt XB1 will ever win a month worldwide, but I'm sure NPD will go their way sometimes. Possibly when the Halo collection releases. There's still a slim chance for XB1 to come out ahead in NA, but the margin will be very small if it happens.
November this year because of MCC and maybe December because of the holidays. Since they have those dancing games releasing around that time and KI Season 2 and other stuff. Halo 5 Beta alone will probably get a lot of ppl to want to get the Xbox One + they get all 4 games also. Next year is tricky, i honestly think it's going to be back and fourth between the two maybe.I mean, Quantum Break, BloodBorne, Halo 5, Uncharted 4, The Order:1886, and maybe even Crackdown.
After waiting for Alan Wake, I don't have confidence that Quantum Break will actually release next year. Crackdown is a 2016 game IMO.
Debatable but I'd say so yeah, I never got round to playing it on ps3 so seriously can't wait I apprieciate some people have already played it but myself and as sony said all those people migrating from xbox 360 this game should shift a few more consoles as if they needed any help with that but I bought my ps4 launch day and resogun is good and a few of the other free offerings but this is the one I'm most excited about that and GTA 5 being re released also, sure there's probably some original games also due before the years out but hey ho it's still early days these consoles haven't even been out a year yet ;) good things come to those who wait.
