8,000,000 + 1 once I'm done with Diablo 3

@shmielmaN

Dude you can never be done with Diablo, ever.

llxKonanxll633d ago (Edited 633d ago )

No? The Last of Us for PS3 sold 7 million as of July 16th. The Ps4 version surpassed 1 million as of today. Do the math.

Twiggy633d ago

I reckon he meant combined.

llxKonanxll633d ago (Edited 633d ago )

^^ I know. It equals out to 8 million combined. Just trying to help.

Flames76633d ago

The last of us has only sold 4.8 million to consumer's.Sony has shipped 7 million on the ps3 but not sure why?Seems like they flooded the market with the game.So if you do numbers sold to consumer's its 5.8 million all together.Now you can do the math

Azzanation632d ago (Edited 632d ago )

Remasters aren't the same game. TLOU on PS3 sold 7 million and the Remastered on PS4 sold 1 million so far. (Those figures could be included what they shipped, not what they sold to customers)

A lot of the hardcore fans basically rebought the remastered edition. Basically what your saying is Halo MMC edition is going to add more sales to the Original Halo game? No doesn't work like that. Some people don't like the old version and are sold on remasters. If TLOU came out on the PS4 exactly the same as the PS3 version then yes you include the sales as a combine.

And for the record, 1 million isn't that great anymore. Maybe back in the N64 days but these days 1 million is a standard for every game unless its really bad. The gaming community is so big now and a lot more expensive, that games can still flop if they only sell 1 million. Look at TR reboot, that sold 3 million across 3 platforms (1 million per console) and Square were very disappointed.

TLOU would have cost ND more to make then TR.

ramiuk1632d ago

considering MS system seller titanfall sold about 3 million over all formats,not forgetting it was at a time of the game being given free with the reduced price console and ND sell 1m for a remake(last of us) which will of been bought by alot of people who are new to PS brand imo and not die hard last of us fans,i think 1m so far is good enough because alot of people are holding of ps4 till destiny etc arrive

UltraNova632d ago

1 million for a new game is not that good yes, but 1 million for a years old game that already sold 7 million is quite an achievement! Well in my part of the world at least ;-)

remixx116632d ago

Well 3 mil for a multiplatform game with 200mil+ platforms to release on is kinda mediocre, but 1 mil for an exclusive on a system with only 10 mil consoles to release on is pretty good.

Azzanation632d ago (Edited 632d ago )

TLOU sold 1 million on a platform that has sold over 10 million. Thats 1/10 that own a PS4 own TLOU. Also its an exblishied franchise.

You guys for some reason like to compare it to Titanfall, well if thats the case then here we go. Titanfall on XB1 alone has sold over 2 million copies on a console that has sold 5 million units total. Thats 1/3 that own a XB1 own Titanfall plus its a new IP. TF failed to sell well on 360 and PC but is one of the most successful selling games on a next gen console this year.

remixx116629d ago (Edited 629d ago )

@azzanation

@ramiuk1

no one was saying titanfall wasn't a success, in fact why even bring it up here I haven't seen anyone making tlou v. Tf comparisons. Also yes titan fall was a big success for the xb1 but lets not ignore the fact that it sold a large amount units due to being bundled with the console for free.

I just find it a little wierd to bring it up here is all.

Sony is slaying with both hardware and software sales

GiggMan633d ago (Edited 633d ago )

I thought I heard them say the PT demo was downloaded over a million times.

That's pretty impressive.

2v1633d ago

i try download that demo i could never find it in the store..

kaozgamer633d ago

@2v1 You need to go into the free games+demos section of the playstation store. Searching for it by name doesn't work for some reason.

5eriously632d ago (Edited 632d ago )

Now where is all the initial doubters? Silent in mourning?

spacedelete633d ago

hopefully it sells 10 million as it will be Naughty Dog's first million seller. anyone on the fence should buy it. if you like videogames you will love The last of us.

LOL_WUT633d ago

I enjoyed it very much for the PS4 on hard difficulty and being ultra stealthy but I just didn't like the Left Behind DLC. With that said Congrats to ND and Sony! ;)

DanteVFenris666633d ago

Only reason I didn't like the dlc Is because the entire time I was anticapted to see Ellie kill her zombie friend and her reactions once she finds out she is immune to the virus. Kinda disappointed it stopped before those parts. But still had fun with it

Salooh632d ago

Same , masterpiece in main story but disappointed with the dlc because of it's story not the way it's' told or it's gameplay

Evilsnuggle632d ago

I was initially angry about The last of Us dlc. Why I had high hopes and dreams for the TLOU dlc . Like the back story Tommy and joel hard times surviving or Ish's story. I wanted to play as joel because he is a bad @$$.

But I did enjoyed the TLOU dlc.

badboyz09633d ago (Edited 633d ago )

The LOU2 will definitely go Diamond(10million copies/albums sold)!

TheJacksonRGN633d ago

What do you mean first million seller all their Uncharted games sold over 1 million. Part 2 and 3 have over 6 million sold.

spacedelete633d ago

that was a typo. 10 million not 1 million.

HighResHero633d ago

It likely will as the install base grows and especially if they do a greatest hits version. It will probably go in my collection after I get a PS4.

jjonez18633d ago (Edited 633d ago )

10m shouldn't be too hard. It has only been a year, afterall. Given Sony and ND continue to support it with psn sales/dlc/price drops.

ramiuk1632d ago

the greatest story game ever made,simple as that.
nothing even comes close for characters,story and setting.
its believeable and you find yourself thinking what would you do constantly throughout.
its nothing short of a gaming masterpiece imo

Concertoine633d ago (Edited 633d ago )

Knack was bundled with every console for the Japanese launch. Im curious how much it sold outside of those numbers.

I wish that game was more successful in its execution so it couldve sold better and we could see more games like the PS1- era platformer.

opoikl633d ago

I actually bought it new and enjoyed the crap out of it. The local coop on the hardest difficulty setting is a really enjoyable experience and incredibly well-balanced, similar to playing games like New Super Mario Bros. U with another friend.

The only thing I didn't like was the fact that you couldn't keep your progress if you wanted to start anew on a higher difficulty setting. That's the only reason I haven't got the platinum trophy for this underappreciated game.

knifefight632d ago (Edited 632d ago )

Knack was bundled free with the first 400,000 PS4s in Japan, yet they counted toward its sales.

If one wanted to subtract that from its total, one could.

I'm sure some of those people would've bought it, but judging by how poorly PS4 software has done in Japan, not many. Certainly not 400,000, for sure. Probably less than 100,000.

Great first party sales. Even better third party:

PS4 Leads The Sales For Almost Every EA Title http://gearnuke.com/ps4-lea...

Ubisoft selling over twice as many units on PS4 than Xbox One http://www.videogamer.com/p...

MGS5: Ground Zeroes sales triple on PS4 over Xbox One http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...

marlinfan10633d ago

its got twice the install base, what did you expect exactly?

spacedelete632d ago

Xbox fanboys have been lying that PS4 owners aren't buying any games.

marlinfan10632d ago (Edited 632d ago )

Who cares lol does it bother you guys that much? Fanboys on all the sides say crazy stuff, its not even worth responding to.
