Of course it's first. Only some here thought it wouldn't. One of the best games is even better and just 20 millions played it. There are tons who didn't. With the HBO series coming, this game will selleven more

InUrFoxHole196d ago

Literally haven't seen anyone on this website say this game won't top the list of selling games. What I have seen is people tiered of rehashing the same crap then taking multi-player away, adding a $10 price hike. Not to mention if you want to play it on the ps5 outside of the US it'll be $50 more for the console. That's what I've heard... but hey I'm just a gamer

jznrpg196d ago (Edited 196d ago )

I’ve seen a bunch of people here saying it would bomb . It won’t sell as many copies the first time around I would guess but it will do well .

darkrider196d ago (Edited 196d ago )

Literally all of one faction have told that. They wish that. What gamers are tired is crap. Nothing more. Choice. You can buy or not. It's an amazing game, one of the best with more then 200 awards, that's even better. And now are all salty because its a hit at full price. But, but, but. Excuses. Anybody that isn't blind by the stupid console war would see this coming. And it will sell even more when the HBO series starts.

SullysCigar196d ago

They're not going to want people playing the old multiplayer when they have a whole new game in the works with that focus. It would cannibalise their own player base.

The price is too high for me too, but I'll be picking it up once it's a little lower. I can appreciate the work they've put into this. They've also included Left Behind which came out after the initial release. It's very possible many missed it as a result and it's a chunky extra slice that's awesome in it's own right.

InUrFoxHole195d ago

I'm the same. I'll be picking it up at a lower price point. Tiered of being gouged by companies. As for those who have seen this kind of shade... Do they want the game to fail because it's a Sony game or because of the price point? This game is a 10/10 but not worth $70 imo

SpineSaw195d ago

You mean the Xbot crowd that's crying about a $10 increase to game prices and the PS5 price hike? The people that are crying over those trivial things would never pkay TLOU Remake nor purchase a PlayStation console and neither of those price hikes seems to be hurting PlayStation not even a little.

outsider1624195d ago

Those people tired of the same crap have a choice. How hard is that? I thought the price is bit much so I'm not buying it. Having played the original and remastered, I'll still get this but on sale.

TheEroica195d ago

And Bingo was his Name-o... Well said FoxHole...

shinoff2183194d ago

Im sure the price hike on the ps5 were needed for some reason or the other. Maybe parts went up in price. I dont think sonys sitting around like damn how can we make a 50 extra off these ps5s. Sony the same company that sold ps3s at a huge loss for quite sone time mind you is really trying to nickel and dime you. Yall beating a dead horse for no reason. Chill the f out and go jump on gamepass.

Dude it sold less than the PS5 version of Saints Row so I wouldn't say it did well, the opposite in fact.

-Foxtrot196d ago

Yeah people here are really not reading the article

Either that or they are taking what they want to hear from it

It sold less than Saints Row which was being shit on a bit before the awful launch

IRetrouk196d ago (Edited 196d ago )

Sold half on one platform of what saints row did on 5 not ps5 only, not sure where ya pulled that one from lol
Saints row was also launched on a Tuesday and tlou on a Friday...

sparky77196d ago


You are wrong 55% of all sales of Saints Rows were on PS5, so I will repeat TLOU sold less that the PS5 version of Saints Row. Which is bad no matter how you try to spin it, unless Saints Row numbers are the new bar for PS exclusives.

IRetrouk196d ago

And I will repeat its sold around half of Saints rows numbers on 1 platform vs 5....
Seems like they sold around the same to me, not less, are ps fans not allowed to buy multiple games? And again, I'll repeat, saints row had more days counted for sales than tlou did, it done fine, no amount of you spinning is gonna change that.

sparky77196d ago

Fair enough "around half" could very will be more than 55% but that's still not great, since Saints Rows sold badly anyway.

To me this is bad for Sony's $70 remake, especially since they rely on games sales as opposed to subscriptions or MTX. But if Saint's Row is the new bar for PS sales I guess they will be fine.

196d ago
IRetrouk196d ago (Edited 196d ago )

Sold badly according to who though? What's the numbers?
Why would saints row be the bar when tlou is already performing better? Tlou sold as much in one day and saints row did in 4.. so to state the bar is saints is silly..

darkrider196d ago

Dude, sony exclusives sell good for months and months and months. I know it's hard to see it on top. But others with new games weren't able to do even that...

derek196d ago

Pay no attention to sparky and others like him who have become obsessed with seeing naughty dog fail.

SullysCigar196d ago

You can't win them all, sparky. Tough day for you, but on the plus side people are enjoying TLOU P1 despite all your worrying. Be happy for them.

SoulWarrior196d ago (Edited 196d ago )

It'll have legs, especially when the price comes down a bit, same can't be said for the mediocre Saints Row I don't think.

Eonjay196d ago

This makes sense and Sony it. I'm not buying it at $70 but at 30-40 I probably will. And being though I played the original, I can wait for a sale.

lonewolf10196d ago

"Only some here thought it wouldn't. "

Point out those posts

CaptainHenry916196d ago

And this is the reason why Sony will continue to be greedy and increase prices for everything. They know their games will sell

196d ago
CaptainHenry916196d ago

Microsoft is doing a lot better for their consumer and user base than Sony right now. They definitely ain't increasing the price of their consoles.

darkrider196d ago

And this is why Sony keeps making great games and doesn't need to buy publishers because others can't make a single blockbuster in the last two Gen...

CaptainHenry916196d ago

You keep dodging the greediness of Sony 😂😂 I expect it to get worse

derek196d ago

Sorry Captain but Microsoft has been an abject failure this gen like they were last. They can't even get Halo right after 5 years of development. They have numerous studios on top of 2 publishers and had no releases at launch or for 22. Lol Nothing coming out noteworthy from them next year did they have a hand in creating. They can talk about value all they want but people want games not talk which is all Microsoft has been delivering.

There the niche community, they can talk the talk but falls flat when it comes to millions other gamers out there compare to a few players on here.

$70 price tag and still number 1? haters cant bring down a masterpiece.

SenorFartCushion196d ago

I’m weirded out by a person thinking that critics of the price hate the game.

Read a book. If you can afford any.

Crows90196d ago

Neither can reason or greed it seems.

RickRoland196d ago

Sony and Nintendo comprise the list. Everyone on gamepass is waiting for freebies.

jznrpg196d ago

Life is short I will enjoy what I want when I want to .

YodaCracker196d ago

“It sold around half the number of copies that Saints Row managed when it debuted at No.1 last week.”

Interesting. Considering 55% of Saints Row sales were on PS5, TLOU sold about on par with Saints Row. But will it see such a big drop in sales in its second week?

Abracadabra196d ago (Edited 196d ago )

Not surprising. Sony fanboys will gobble up anything Sony throws at them, no matter the price. They will purchase the same game over, and over, and over again, as long as Sony gets the money.
Got to give them credit, they are truly loyal to a fault...

Bathyj196d ago

And Xbox gamers won't buy anything.

No wonder Sony fans get better games.

solideagle196d ago (Edited 196d ago )

lol it's not entirely true. for example, below games didn't sell well although it had so called Sony Label on it by your logic:

- Gravity Rush
- Days gone
- The Last Guardian
- Knack
- The Order 1886

Edit: I am not dissing Sony's exclusives by any means btw.

Army_of_Darkness196d ago


Bathy said Sony gamers get better games. This doesn't necessarily mean that they will all sell well. I have all the 5 games you've mentioned and I enjoyed 3 out of the 5.

shinoff2183194d ago

I thought days gone was dope. Ill admit i did play it after a year or so.

darkrider196d ago

At least we don't buy a new console with zero games.

ClayRules2012196d ago

For real. And continue to support that console throughout its life cycle with the only first party games being Halo, Gears, Forza that they rely on (referring to Microsoft) and the rest really have always been 3rd party multi platform MP games.

I have no issue with people (such as some of my friends) who game on Xbox because some of our friends have both PS and Xbox, while others only have PS (such as myself) but my point is, they prefer Xbox’s MP and think it’s better, which is fine with me, I have no issue with that. But those like the guy above, in his arrogance and fanboy sounding behavior who act as if Sony fanboys are the only ones buying The Last of Us Part 1 is not only foolish, it’s just laughable. But again, many like him (not all Xbox gamers) will make claims that Xbox has the best exclusives in the world, and I wonder, based on what? Halo, Gears and Forza, I’ll toss in Fable as well.

There’s a reason why us who’re Sony fans/gamers prefer PlayStation, for various reasons. But for me, the first party exclusives just cannot be beat! They deliver a quantity of titles each generation that beats all the competition, and all offer unique experiences for everyone, and 95% they all deliver, with a few duds in there. But it happens. Only a fanboy would claim each game is a hit haha.

Elda196d ago

At least Sony fans have exclusives to play in 2022 while the competition has absolutely nothing releasing throughout this entire year of 2022.

HardKnockKid24196d ago

Actually, if you look at the release schedule you’ll see that Xbox has exclusives releasing in 2022. Might not be what you like but a fact is a fact.

Traecy195d ago

@HardKnockKid24 What AAA XB exclusives are releasing this year? Please name them.

HardKnockKid24195d ago

@Traecy, nope you’re changing the game. Neither I nor Elda said anything about AAA. Try again.

Elda195d ago (Edited 195d ago )

To HardKnockKid24...What Traecy said is exactly what I mean. XB doesn't have any AAA first-party titles releasing at all this entire year. I do know there are 2 Indie/AA low-budget games Scorn & Warhammer:Darktide releasing later this year exclusively on XB but for the next 4 months there are no AAA XB first-party exclusives. Again no XB first-party exclusives for the entire year of 2022.

HardKnockKid24195d ago

@Elda, what you meant is not what was written. Doesn’t make my statement any less correct. Now if you want to talk AAA sure, that’s probably true but Xbox actually has more than a few exclusives coming this year.

Elda195d ago

ToHardKnock...I didn't think I had to mention exactly what I was saying in my initial comment when I said XB doesn't have any exclusives releasing this entire year. People with common sense know exactly what I'm talking about when it comes to exclusives & that's usually first-party AAA exclusives like Sony has put out throughout 2022. If you want to count 2 indie AA low-budget games by a 3rd party bonafide XB exclusives so be it but I'm quite sure those titles are timed exclusive & will be on Sony's machines one day.

HardKnockKid24194d ago

@elda, and now you know. Also, stop pledging allegiance to a company that will not even bat an eye when you die. Have a life
