Not one but two The Last of Us titles cracked the UK sales charts this week, as The Last of Us Remastered rebounded on the back of its PlayStation 4 successor’s record-breaking success.
I think that many people who didn't played the first game wanted to play it first before playing part 2.
Makes sense. Probably wanted to see what all the hype was about but I’d wanna start at beginning for sure.
I wonder how all the people that hate the story would feel if they played 2 first.
@sungod pretty certain it is, I also really enjoyed it, DLC done well some of my favourite DLC ever. Well made great addition to main story not a cash grab ripped from main game its whole new and brilliant DLC.
@TFJWM : People would actually have to play 2 in order to hate it. Fake hate is all i read. They get plot points wrong, or they make something up. Or they downright never played the game and decided long before the game released that they hate it. Yes, this is the world we live in. The game is a Novel and some wanted a comic book story. Anyone remember paint by numbers? Right.
I do that all the time if I want to get into a series, especially if it's one with just two entries, and the first game can be acquired for fairly cheap. Actually, even though I've already played The Last of US Part I, I do have plans to replay it before I get around to playing its sequel. I already own it on both PS3 and PS4 though.
I ended up buying the first two mass effect games after a short time playing Mass Effect 3. It makes sense for games that are in a series, particularly when they're directly connected.
I have never seen a 7 year old SP game top the twitch charts before now.
It Playstation exclusive magic
I can already see Ratchet & Clank be replayed when Rift Apart gets closer. I know that I will be going at it again.
The Spiffing Brit's video on Rise of Nation's made it onto YouTubeGaming trending last year. Always nice to see a video of a game from 2003 trending alongside Fortnite and Minecraft.
TLOU1 deserves the spotlight again. An unmatched story and experience.
Didnt expect to see this chart again, crazy.
Do it Sony/ND!
if tlou 2 is a 10, tlou 1 is a 15
It's not cool to say this on the internet apparently, but for me it's the other way around...
Oh look the people that returned TLOU2 bought it again. Since some mental gymnastes were saying people returned the game lmao.
”The Last of Us: Part II’s sales did decrease 80 per cent week-on-week, ” It sold 4 million in 3 days. It had to sell at least 5 or 6 for the week. That means with an 80% decrease it still sold at least another million. Is it possible this game is topping 7 million since last Friday? And that's just physical.
mmmh I think the over 4 millions is including the digital sales it comes directly from sony, so they have all the numbers correct.
I don't think it includes digital but if I'm wrong anyone that wants to can provide a link.
well, the fact that they never said "Physical only" should be enough I think
''It’s worth stressing that all of this data accounts for physical sales only; we don’t have access to digital sales'' Just read it my guy.
@leoms ....thats UK... he is talking about WW data... the 4 millions... just read it my guy.
4 million is a global figure including the digital sales and this 80% drop is just in UK sales (which is a very small chunk of global sales). We don't know how much it dropped globally in second week. It maybe lower than 80%.
''It’s worth stressing that all of this data accounts for physical sales only; we don’t have access to digital sales''
Did you even read the full sentence, that is regarding UK sales only. The next part of the sentence links back to the article of global sales which is 4 million (inclusive of everything).
Enjoy the Masterpiece, People.
Fantastic games like this are timeless.
Um, no it didn't. Sales dropped 80% and games flooded the used market. How about stop being fanboys and actually report facts.
