For a remastered version of a one year old game those sales are really impressive.

Lightning Mr Bubbles704d ago (Edited 704d ago )

Those are very solid numbers for most AAA games, but for a PS3 port, that's just criminal. Naughty Dog should be in jail.

But I mean that in a good way.

Lightning Mr Bubbles704d ago

Not really, just kidding on that last comment. I think is was a great and noble thing to bring TLOU to PS4, it's a great game that PS4 adopters who didn't have a PS3 should be able to play.

It's good for both gamers and to get the game even more exposure, because as many people as possible should experience TLOU. It's a great game.

And I know it's more than just a port.

NatureOfLogic_704d ago (Edited 704d ago )

So this ioi guy who is a known Xbox fanboy that runs Vgchartz, says he doesn't believe Sony's official numbers of 10 million sold because he can't find where he guessed wrong? So PS4 will remained under tracked by more than 600k units. Lmao

Mr Pumblechook704d ago (Edited 704d ago )

This website must be making stuff because they always under track PS4 figures and overstate the Xbone figures.

Blood Tears on the VG Chartz comments section said it best:
"The original games has gone on to sell more than 4.5 million units." What a joke! It passed 7 million copies already on the original, Sony already confirmed it. Much like 10 million PS4's and once again, no adjustments. Pathetic!"

frenchtoast704d ago

I don't think this number is accurate, but I'm also wary of believing the 1.5 mil number, because if they had sold 1 million, they would have sent out a press release or something.

BarneyS704d ago

The fact that they always adjust Xbox numbers after MS releases sales (shipped) numbers without asking questions is even more pathetic. But when Sony does it they don't beleive it..

aCasualGamer703d ago (Edited 703d ago )

Don't trust VGChartz and their sources.

They have PS4 at 9,4 million units sold. Sony announced that they had sold more than 10 million units.

That's an error of about 600 000 units. I don't care what kind of sources they have but that's alot of units they missed out on in their calculations.

TomShoe703d ago

Ewwwwwwww

Chartzzzzzzzzzzz

Gantrfaxx703d ago

And it's not any year old game. It's a hell of a game.

You know, I'm actually going to say the number is closer to what insiderp claimed (1.5 mil) They were spot on with the 10 million claim afterall. and vgcharts hasnt really ever overtracked playstation; they alweays undertrack.

and all these numbers are still only accounting for the last 3 days of july .

FlameHawk704d ago

Wow I can't people actually believed The Last of Us sold 1.5 mil. Are you guys being serious? The original didn't even sell that mean in that time frame yet you expect it to sell 1.5 million? wow. Also if it did sell over 1 million they would have told us just like they did for inFamous. Watch in a month, Sony will say it sold 1 mil.

G20WLY704d ago (Edited 704d ago )

^The original release carried only the draw of ND being the developers, since it was a new IP and many were sulking because it wasn't Uncharted.

Okay, the install base of PS3 was much larger than PS4 is now, but given:

-the incredible reviews (from both critics and users)
-the almost 250 GOTY awards
-some consider TLOU their "Game of the Generation"
-this is an improved version
-many PS4 owners never had a PS3
-PS4 haz noe gaemz/S

I don't see why it's so hard to believe TLOU:R could have sold over 1m copies, especially when you factor in digital downloads, since this game is considered a keeper by many. Just my opinion :^)

Kribwalker704d ago

I'm sure these numbers are closer then Insiderdp, because if those numbers were true, Sony definitely would have touted that, or at least 1 million sales at gamescom

Zenith4k703d ago

Damn right I know this because I personally bought 1 million copies

Zenith4k703d ago

Damn right I know this for a fact because I personally bought 1million copies ;)

Congrats to Naughty Dog.

So glad people are still seeking for unique and different games such as this.

I thought COD and BF brainwashed people to the point they wouldn't even glance at a game such as this.

We need more TLOU type of quality in our industry.

AngelicIceDiamond704d ago

Whoa didn't know there were sensitive COD and BF fans in here reading this.

You don't come across many games like TLOU everyday in the game industry.

Its a welcome whenever they are they made.

Hk85karlsson704d ago

Yes we do. A game where story is critical and the actors deliver on their part where the characters become semi-real (almost real to me at least).

This is the type of game I want to play.

medman704d ago

First of all, these are vgchartz bullshit numbers...not to be believed at all. I'm sure TLOU for ps4 sold much higher, if this pathetic sites history is to be accounted for.

Blaze929704d ago

wasn't there an article saying this game sold 1 million copies or so in the first 24 hours? What happened?

Spotie703d ago

VGChartz happened.

I'd put more faith in the numbers the fleas on my dog guessed than anything this site puts out.

Or what? Is VGChartz believable now?

FanboyKilla700d ago

just ask naughty dog. i dont here them thanking their customers for helping them sell one million in a night. soooooo..... i doubt it. sony never has a problem posting positive numbers.

hey six hundred thousand isnt bad. it is the same game they just sold to the public about a year ago. how many of that six hundred thousand, do you believe are new to tlou? im willing to bet no where near as many the number of returning ps loyalist.

so kudos to nd and sony, they sold the samething twice. that has to account for something. and i think it says great game, but also, a lack of greatness. no pun intended. though it is kind of funny and ironic.

I thought this was legit when I read the title... nope just VGChartz :-(

Ezz2013704d ago (Edited 704d ago )

same resction

Lolchartz is being Lolchartz

FarEastOrient704d ago

This website still has the PS4 under tracked by 800,000 units. Sony already reported 10 mil and this has them at 9.2 mil.

amiga-man704d ago

VGChartz had very little credibility before but to deny Sony has sold 10 million consoles when it has already been confirmed by Sony themselves just proves how laughable this site is.

Eonjay704d ago

The site admin ioi has responded about why they wont update their figures to 10 Million. They said that the reason they are missing 600k PS4 in their numbers is because they can't figure out what regions they are down in.

"...If Sony is to be believed..." is a quote from the site Admin.

FarEastOrient704d ago

They can't figure out what regions they're down in because they guessed wrong.

Ezz2013704d ago

OMG WOW
did he really said that ?

MasterCornholio704d ago

""...If Sony is to be believed..." is a quote from the site Admin."

Sounds like someone who's extremely butthurt said that.

Why o why704d ago (Edited 704d ago )

Time to finally get them out of here

Oh...... but n4g has some kinda deal with them.....take from that what you will

The irony of vgc questioning sonys official numbers is off the chartz

N4g Integrity............

TheBreezyBB704d ago

It baffles me why some people still this made up site!!

"The Last of Us Remastered is an updated version of the PlayStation 3 smash hit The Last of Us. The original games has gone on to sell more than 4.5 million units."

What...the original game has already sold just south of 7 million before the ps4 version....this article is wrong or they have old numbers...technically it's worded right...but better wording would have been "the original version has gone on to sell more than 6 million units"

Underworld704d ago (Edited 704d ago )

I'm confused about how much the PS3 version of The Last of Us sold. Is the 7 million number sold to consumers or retail? I don't think it was said.

NatureOfLogic_704d ago

Vgchartz tracks shipped to retailers. At least that's what they said when defending MS over tracked numbers.

Underworld704d ago (Edited 704d ago )

That's not what they've told me. I emailed them months ago asking about it and they told me they track sold to consumers. I think they've pointed it out on their site a few times too.

bloodybutcher704d ago

To be fair, 7 milionsis more than 4,5m, so he is correct xD

trunkswd704d ago

That is short of what Cowen & Company analyst Doug Creutz expected and not Sony.

Bathyj704d ago

Man, you try waaay to hard.

LeCreuset704d ago

Your troll attempt is as pitiful as it is transparent.

Rimeskeem704d ago (Edited 704d ago )

You trust 1 analyst now?

Don Mattrick once said that the first console to reach 10 million sales it wins the generation.

Revengeance704d ago

Lol your troll attempts get dumber by the day! It's obvious you wanted this game to fail because no games on 360 or XB1 are as good as TLOU :)

marioJP87704d ago (Edited 704d ago )

10 million PS4s available. You'd expect it to break at least 1 million by almost a month of availability. Welp, im one of those 600,000 who bought it.

DarXyde704d ago

Key words: "Opening Week". If sales are consistently high like this, a month, or approximately 4 weeks, would probably yield 2.4 million units.

Let's revisit this conversation next week.

LeCreuset704d ago

"Let's revisit this conversation next week, using real sales data instead of numbers generated by VGC's rectum."

Fixed.

LordMaim704d ago

Then again if you believe VGChartz, PS4 has only sold 9.4 million PS4s.

Why would this number be any more accurate, especially since it doesn't count digital sales?
