Great sales for a remastered title but didn't another source say it sold over that much in the first week?
trunkswd  +   450d ago
It sold just over 600,000 in its first week. Took 4 weeks to hit 1 million.

great sales of a great game!

What he's saying is there were reports that it sold 1.5 million the first day. Nobody knows where any of these numbers come from, never mind their validity.
JackVagina  +   450d ago
That 1.5m number was from insiDERP

I cant believe how many people actually believed it considering infamous second son sold 1 million after NINE DAYS(official, not VGC) http://blog.us.playstation....

Insiderp said TLOU sold 1.5m IN 24 HOURS

1.5 million including digital seems a stretch but is possible. VGchartz undertracks because no digital and estimated data. Insiderp got the 10million ps4's correct so 1.5 mill tlou could be right inc digital

i would have said PS4 hit 10 million. just a math actually. sony is selling around 1.2 million PS4 per month thanks to their production limit.
Gamble20  +   450d ago
VGChartz always under tracks PS4. They were 700k units off on reporting console sales when Sony announced they had hit 10m (VGC said it was 9.3 at the time). I'm not sayingn the 1.5m was accurate either but I would personally guess somewhere between the two numbers.

Very impressive for a re-master! Congrats to ND and Sony now bring on a sequel ASAP lol
Twiggy  +   450d ago
This extra cash should be handy, I wonder what game they are funding with this cash.. Uncharted 4 is underway, what could be cooking at ND HQ?
Asuka  +   450d ago
congrats to ND and Sony

My first time with TLOU was with PS4. Playing it through the second time. It's one of the very few games I bothered to play the second time through since the Nes/Snes/Psx/Ps2 eras. Games aren't what they used to be, but this one was a genuinely good game.

congrats to ND, this game is indeed one of the best games of all time, not only an epic, phenomenal SP but a very good MP component as well and now mp is better than ever at 60 FPS

I hope they come out with a Remastered DS4. That controller is awesome but the grip on the sticks is aweful during really intense matches. And the battery life is HORRIBLE. The joysticks on Xbox One are an awesome example of perfect joysticks. Dont get me wrong, i <3 the DS4. Especially how friggin cool the way devs have been utilizing the touchpad. Hell, ill even almost hit the Xbox button on accident. If they offer a DS4 with improved battery life and better sticks, i will buy it immediatley.

Wholly irrelevant.
chito1016d  +   450d ago
Bought a ps4 and the last of us a few days ago. I never owned a ps3 and man was I missing out on this game.
Subaruwrx  +   450d ago
For those people who ragged on ND for releasing a remaster so soon after the original release - obviously the remaster was a very good business decision.
Macdaddy71  +   450d ago
I don't see how that's so great with 10 million consoles sold!!!! Plus keep buying remaster games n that's all we will get n no new IPs.....
That's only 1% of ps4 owners buying the game!!!!
Dontworrybhappy  +   450d ago
I would agree with you about too many reamasters, but Master Chief Collection looks like the best game/remaster/bundle that gonna come out in either 2014 or 2015. Im more hyped for that Collection than I can even put into words. XD OMG I CANT WAIT!
danny818  +   450d ago
Ditto. Same here
HappyWithOneBubble  +   450d ago
7m people already played it on PS3. The 1m on PS4 are mostly 360/PC gamers that didn't get to play it.

There are plenty of new ips coming. Where you been.
scootscottskeet93  +   450d ago
Mac first off its one of the best games ever made and second it's 10% not 1%...
DVAcme  +   450d ago
First of all, 1 million in one month for ANY game, let alone a remaster, is great sales. Second of all, your math sucks, cause 1 million is 10% of 10 million. Any game being bought by 10% of the user base is a success. Especially when 10% of the PS4 user base is equal to 33% of the XB1 user base.
