StreaK (2 days ago)
Wikipedia states this game sold 8 million copies in 14 months.
Rob5VGC (on 03 November 2016)
Adjusted way down. WTF!
Dadrik (on 10 October 2016)
Adjusted down again, what even
Rob5VGC (on 14 September 2016)
6 million!
Rob5VGC (on 08 September 2016)
less than 500 left.
StreaK (on 03 September 2016)
Uhh, I just read a 2014 article that stated TLoU surpassed 7 million on sales on PS3.
I'm pretty sure this game sold well over 10 million copies by now.
Rob5VGC (on 01 September 2016)
2k left.
Rob5VGC (on 26 August 2016)
4k left.
Rob5VGC (on 18 August 2016)
6k left.
Dadrik (on 31 July 2016)
Come on, so close !
Dadrik (on 06 March 2016)
On its way to the 6M Club on PS3, while the PS4 version will definitely reach 5M.
SlayerRondo (on 02 March 2016)
I will just be content with the fact that The Last of Us has sold over 10 million between platforms.
VXIII (on 11 January 2016)
While this is a valid point, but customers get to choose between various bundles as well. So the game is the reason why the bundle is selling better than the other bundles. "cheating" bundles usually happen in the holidays seasons when it is the main discounted bundle for the season with the game thrown in for free. Happened to Uncharted 3 and the more recently AC:Unity on Xbox One.
Mr Puggsly (on 10 January 2016)
I'm not talking it down, just pointing out this is a mass bundled game. The weekly sales charts reflect that. I only pointed that out because the praise of the sales with not mention of bundles.

Given what you post on some Xbox walls you shouldn't be so sensitive.
SlayerRondo (on 19 December 2015)
Ah Mr Puggsly, why am I not surprised to hear you talking down a PlayStation success? I am sure that when Microsoft bundles games you are more than willing to talk down the importance of bundles in those circumstances or talk up how many digital sales there must have been. Sometimes I wish I were able to be such a hypocrite.
Dadrik (on 20 November 2015)
Of course
Mr Puggsly (on 14 November 2015)
Without mass bundling I don't think this is the hit people think it is.
legendarysaiyanbroly (on 10 February 2015)
Of course! Even though everything points at the fact that this has been grossly undertracked the entire time, just go ahead, ignore all the official evidence and act idiotic about it by adjusting down da numbers, vgchartz. It's not that it would b the 1st. time, either. At least not as far as PS3 games concerns.
Dadrik (on 09 February 2015)
Adjusted down by more than 70k.
Ninsect (on 19 January 2015)
This is like 1.5-2m undertracked at this point
TrevDaRev (on 10 January 2015)
@ZombieVito: Are you sure it was adjusted, and you haven't mistaken it's strong holiday sales as adjustments? It sold over 61k last week and over 225k for the month of December.
Kerotan (on 06 January 2015)
how much was it adjusted?
ZombieVito (on 03 January 2015)
Adjusted a little bit. Still WAY off.
ExplodingBlock (on 03 December 2014)
Undertracked by alot
OttoniBastos (on 25 November 2014)
I wouldn't be surprised if this version is already at 7.5 - 8 million range.
legendarysaiyanbroly (on 01 November 2014)
@ qwerty: It's still severely undertracked. U don't have to keep up with official gaming statements/annuoncements if u don't want to, but then don't comment like if you fucking were, would you?!
fluky-nintendy (on 24 October 2014)
Will soon climb those chartz again thanks to the GOTY edition. If there's a game that deserves that edition, that game is The Last of Us!!
Emperorbach (on 23 October 2014)
still very undertracked
sony confirmed that is has sold more than 7m copies back in june , and thats before the ps4 version dropped
qwertyDANIELqwerty (on 22 October 2014)
@ZombieVito, it is not undertracked. Is five million just not enough for you fanboys?
ZombieVito (on 06 October 2014)
Still massively undertracked but it's something.
Dadrik (on 03 October 2014)
Adjusted up again.
TrevDaRev (on 24 August 2014)
@NintendoSupporter It was actually over 7 million. That was also including digital sales. Still undertracked on here.
NintendoSupporter (on 22 August 2014)
Didn't this sell over 6 million?
Dadrik (on 21 August 2014)
Up 150k. Well, that's a start.
fluky-nintendy (on 21 August 2014)
The numbers are so misleading...
Dadrik (on 15 August 2014)
"We know what the official numbers are, but we won't change s#!t. Because we don't feel like it."

- VGChartz
WebMasterFlex (on 12 August 2014)
Another great example of vgchartz can't fixed numbers.
AngryAztec (on 26 July 2014)
This is one of the best games the PS3 ever had. And it really makes me wonder why out of the 80+ million PS3 owners, only less than 8 million got the game. What could those 72 million be playing instead of TLoU?
ZombieVito (on 22 July 2014)
I guess they will wait until it has sold 8 million. >_>
leyendax69 (on 16 July 2014)
Update must be done
ZombieVito (on 16 July 2014)
No it's not undertracked at all. 2.36 million copies are just sitting in the store or were just digital sales >_>

Update your shit ioi
Colocho (on 16 July 2014)
Game is seriously undertracked. It was announced thae game sold over 7 million units ahead of the remastered version.
SlayerRondo (on 25 June 2014)
Cant wait to replay on the PS4 this July.
ZombieVito (on 02 June 2014)
Still undertracked.
leyendax69 (on 03 May 2014)
Guys, get over it. Is not like the numbers of 7th and 8th gen here means something...
ZombieVito (on 27 April 2014)
They won't do it, they are so anal when they are wrong.
pezus (on 22 April 2014)
Adjustments any day now...
fluky-nintendy (on 19 April 2014)
Got it on sale digitally for about half of the price!
WagnerPaiva (on 13 April 2014)

WagnerPaiva (on 10 April 2014)
Well, I have a copy, a retailer one, bought at launch, best game ever.
Kowan (on 09 April 2014)
I doubt more than a million bought this digitally. It's too big a game. VGchartz just doesn't want to stain it's ego and stick with it's estimates even though solid proof is already out there proving them wrong.
Dadrik (on 09 April 2014)
pezus, I think the 6 Millions number included the digital sales, while the VGC numbers don't.
pezus (on 07 April 2014)
It's already at 6m, though...
No adjustments.
leyendax69 (on 31 March 2014)
This might not reach uncharted numbers after all. Ps4 port will cut off its legs.
pezus (on 25 March 2014)
Almost a year after launch with 1.6m on shelves. Lol, that would be insane.

I can believe something like 5.2m retail + 400k digital + 400k on shelves
Fusioncode (on 25 March 2014)
Do you really think this games has 1.6m copies on store shelves?
kirby007 (on 24 March 2014)
sold to retailer=/= soldto consumers
ZombieVito (on 20 March 2014)
Cmon that adjustment.
pezus (on 19 March 2014)
No adjustments, still
DarkFury (on 15 March 2014)
Sony announced this game has sold 6 million copies.
ZombieVito (on 14 March 2014)
It's more likely a little bit more than 1 million. I think the game has 500K of digital sales.
Turkish (on 14 March 2014)
Undertracked by 2 million!
VXIII (on 14 March 2014)
@fluky. More like 6M worldwide :)
fluky-nintendy (on 11 March 2014)
Let's not forget how huge digital sales are for this game. I wouldn't be surprised when Sony reports a total different number from these reports. A 5M right now at least
ZombieVito (on 03 March 2014)
I just hope when that complete edition comes, Left Behind is on the damn disk. No DLC codes please.
Mentore (on 02 March 2014)
A masterpiece. it deserves at least 10m sales!
OttoniBastos (on 28 February 2014)
So is Tlou selling 20k for week after 8 months? Damn legs!

When the Complete/game of the year edition come out it will reach 5 millions for sure!
sub-zero-TM (on 04 February 2014)
Adjusted up!! ^__^
WebMasterFlex (on 25 January 2014)
Uncharted 2 & 3's numbers for sure at the end.
late_release (on 12 January 2014)
Great numebers for the first 6 months. Certainly going to reach 7M all time sales
ZombieVito (on 11 January 2014)
A GOTY edition will surely bring this over 6 million.
nnodley (on 10 January 2014)
Seriously this game deserves to be a 10 million seller, imo
Dadrik (on 10 January 2014)
Uncharted 2, available since 2009, 6.3M.
Uncharted 3, available since 2011, 6.25M
The Last Of Us, available since June 2013, 4.05M.

I might be wrong, but I'll say it. The Last Of Us is going to be the best selling Naughty Dog game.
It might even reach the 6 Million units next December.
OttoniBastos (on 08 January 2014)
Already crossed the 4 million milestone? Someone should make a topic about it.
KingWithNoKrown (on 08 January 2014)
KingWithNoKrown (on 08 January 2014)
Great dales. Truthfully it deserves more.
TrevDaRev (on 07 January 2014)
5 million with digital sales included? Incredible game and an incredible achievement. A brand new IP launching this late in the gen to these kind of sales.

Dadrik (on 07 January 2014)
100k just this week, wow !

AnarchyWest: not at the moment. When asked, ND simply said "We'll see". So let's just wait.
AnarchyWest (on 06 January 2014)
Does anyone know if this game is getting a game of the year edition?
Dadrik (on 04 January 2014)
This game will hit 4 Millions as of 28th. This is amazing.
I'm sure it will sell as much as the Uncharted games.
colafitte (on 28 December 2013)
I said this 1 month before launch....

"colafitte (on 16 July 2013)
I'm predicting around 4M sold at the end of the year, 1M more in 2014"

Considering the last 2 weeks it sold 85k each, it only needs to keep the pace to be absolutely spot on, according to vgchartz numbers of course.

I think this game sold another 500k digital copies at least, so 4'5-5 million it's very possible, and for a new IP with just 1 Christmas sales.... amazing!....more to come in 2014 for sure.
9087 (on 06 December 2013)
ZombieVito (on 29 November 2013)
Like 100K, the hell man this is the game of the year. I expected it will reach at least 4 million.
WagnerPaiva (on 29 November 2013)
This is really unfair, TLofU deserves much better sales
TrevDaRev (on 28 November 2013)
How much is it undertracked in the US, Zombie?
ZombieVito (on 25 November 2013)
It won't reach 4 mil this year =/

Unless they fix the numbers (it's undertracked in US).
SlayerRondo (on 28 October 2013)
Wondering if the launch of the PS4 will slow the sales of The Last of Us stopping from reaching the Sales of say an entry in the Uncharted series.
Drakester (on 10 October 2013)
Wow this game is undertracked.
pezus (on 09 October 2013)
Over 200k is damn good for a Western game in Japan. It should be able to reach 300k.
think-man (on 08 October 2013)
@thewastedyouth shows how much you know about Japanese gaming with stupid comments like that.
thewastedyouth (on 06 October 2013)
Japan fails again at gaming, do people even game over there?
fatslob-:O (on 02 October 2013)
This did really well in japan considering that alot of action-adventure western games don't do so hot there.
think-man (on 29 September 2013)
55k this week, legs are strong wit this one.
9087 (on 28 September 2013)
this game will sell 7 million +

There will be a PS4 version and GOTY version as well.
krafty89 (on 28 September 2013)
Its sales this week were due to an awesome Last of Us and GTAV 500GB PS3 bundle 179.99 for a while then 199.99 in the UK. This will get a big boost in the holidays as well probably with a Last of us and GT6 bundle for the same price.
ps3-sales! (on 27 September 2013)
legs starting to show!
Turkish (on 26 September 2013)
Still undertracked.
Mike_L (on 21 September 2013)
@nnodley: It sold 3.4 million copies in its first 3 weeks but that included digital. Like paulrage2 I think it will hit 5 million during the holiday.
leyendax69 (on 17 September 2013)
@think-man: Seems like ND has its fanbase in Japan since Crash Bandicoot
think-man (on 17 September 2013)
Im actually impressed by its sales in Japan.
bananaking21 (on 17 September 2013)
still undertracked nnodley
nnodley (on 08 September 2013)
Does anyone know if this is still a under tracked or if it's fairly right?
-girgosz- (on 02 September 2013)
Can't add this to my games
WebMasterFlex (on 31 August 2013)
The Last Of Us, Uncharted 2, Uncharted 3 will all do 7 million... Naughty Dog are really Naughty Gods.
paulrage2 (on 30 August 2013)
*at the end of the year.
paulrage2 (on 30 August 2013)
I think will breake 5 million at the and of the year. I hope at least 7 million life time. This game deserve a lot!
ZombieVito (on 27 August 2013)
Those legs... It went up in Japan 0_o
think-man (on 27 August 2013)
Did this just get adjusted up?
pezus (on 27 August 2013)
@nnodley: Way more. 4.5m at the very least
nnodley (on 26 August 2013)
I'm gonna guess it will be at 3.4mil to 3.8mil by the end of the year. Maybe more if I'm highly optimistic.
think-man (on 25 August 2013)
@withdreday agreed! why does he have to make it his business to always mention it!!
9087 (on 24 August 2013)
6-7 million LTD
withdreday (on 24 August 2013)
@ thewastedyouth

Must you spam the same comment across every damn game? Let Japanese gamers play what they want. Stop being such a damn Nazi about it.
thewastedyouth (on 23 August 2013)
why does Japan fail so hard at gaming!!!

3 mill with EU and NA confirmed. Still its 100K undertracked in NA.
LFroot (on 22 August 2013)
Since I started with my online business, I earn $62 every 15 minutes! My best friend has been averaging 11k for months now and he works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. The potential with this is endless. This is what I do,
WebMasterFlex (on 17 August 2013)
undertracked because of digital sales.
JayWood2010 (on 16 August 2013)
Should make it to 3m next week :) Well deserved.
DonnieDarko2013 (on 16 August 2013)
This game is so outstanding. I love the plot and gameplay.
ZombieVito (on 16 August 2013)
According to NPD, the game sold 170K in July. That's 1.155 mil in 2 months.

Still Undertracked.
halil23 (on 16 August 2013)
@ riderz13371, intelligent post!
Colocho (on 16 August 2013)
No, not 10 mil. I could see this reaching 6.5 million ltd... but the second game (if they make one) will have the chance to reach the 10 mil IMO.
SunofKratos (on 15 August 2013)
Looks like my 3.5 -4 M lifetime prediction was wrong. It will sell 4 M pretty easily.
A203D (on 11 August 2013)
@enditall727. If Sony decide to release a GOTY edition next year for the PS4, I think its possible.
enditall727 (on 10 August 2013)
DONT QUOTE ME ON THIS but what if this game reaches 10 mill? This could be NaughtyDogs 1st title to break Diamond status(10 mill). After letting go of Crash Bandicoot which was a franchise that was pretty much breaking 7.5 mill a pop, they eventually refound that same success again in the Uncharted franchise which WILL reach Crash Bandicoots level of fame( also breaking 7.5 mill). NaughtyDog have their "Crash" again but could The Last Of Us finally bring this talented studio passed the 10 million barrier? I think it could! does anybody else agree/disagree?

dirtybucks (on 09 August 2013)
i don't see a bundle for this game at all so what are yall talking about
riderz13371 (on 08 August 2013)
Who cares if it's under Uncharted 3? Uncharted is a well known franchise whereas the Last of Us is a brand new IP and it's also a new IP that is coming out at the end of the generation. Not only this but it had a day one digital version on the PS Store, which I personally bought because stores around me were sold out of physical copies. Also the game came out in June, a time where video games don't usually do that well. This game had everything going against it but Naughty Dog made an incredible game and people recognized that. 3M+ in just under 2 months for a game of this genre and a new IP is absolutely incredible. I'm sure any publisher/developer would kill to have this type of an achievement this late in the generation for one of their games.
sniper989 (on 07 August 2013)
Uncharted 3 launched near christmas, had no digital version and was not released after the PS3's successor was revealed... it is doing really well when you consider that
busbfran (on 07 August 2013)
its now under uncharted 3 sales so disappointing....
think-man (on 07 August 2013)
@Wagner I was joking this game is selling like Hot Cakes.
ZombieVito (on 07 August 2013)
The game is most likely at 3 mil already. Vgchartz just don't correct the damn numbers.
Colocho (on 07 August 2013)
So 3mil in 2 weeks? Game is Shattering even the most optimistic predictions!! Glad to see a great game selling this well.
CronosIvan (on 07 August 2013)
I think that by the end of the year it can reach 4 million, maybe more, and if ps4 does not cut its legs, it will sell better than Uncharted 2 and uncharted 3
WagnerPaiva (on 06 August 2013)
Are you guys crazy? 3 million in a few weeks for a new HORROR I.P. THIS IS A MASSIVE SUCESS!
ZombieVito (on 06 August 2013)
Still undertracked by about 100K :(
Kyuu (on 05 August 2013)
Yea bruv dem Sony boyz aint got no shiz. Only Xbox exclusives can do well widout massive-asz bundling.

.. I kid I kid..
think-man (on 05 August 2013)
What a FLOP
bananaking21 (on 05 August 2013)
deyon is obviously kidding. 900K max? you mean 400K max surely !
CGI-Quality (on 03 August 2013)
Deyon is KIDDING. Come on, y'all! :D
WebMasterFlex (on 02 August 2013)
Obviously Deyon is trolling.
ZombieVito (on 02 August 2013)
What bundles????
Deyon (on 02 August 2013)
Those numbers don't count. It sold that much thanks to Sony's heavy bundling. Without the bundles, it would've sold 900k maximum.
sniper989 (on 01 August 2013)
ZombieVito (on 31 July 2013)
Yes apparently has only sold 95K in 20 days. >_> update your shit vgchartz.
Turkish (on 31 July 2013)
Only 800k in june in the USA? The game sold 985k on NPD, when are we seeing adjustments?
colafitte (on 31 July 2013)
Sony has confirmed that The last of us has surpassed 100k sales in Spain. So, UK, France, Germany and Spain sums 720k. We have here 1 million for all Europe, so the rest of Europe is only 280k??
bachireddy27 (on 31 July 2013)
Heavily undertracked
vodkasosa1000 (on 31 July 2013)

If capcom would make RE6 a survival horror game it would have sold like 12 million copies already.
Pjams (on 30 July 2013)
Severely under-tracked. Gaf couldn't care less.
Iveyboi (on 30 July 2013)
I hate to drop the 'under-tracked' bomb but this so badly undertracked.
WagnerPaiva (on 30 July 2013)
Two type of people in the world: People who played The Last of Us and LOVE IT.
And the haters, who will never really play it, not for more than 5 minutes, and hate it.
Best game ever on this gen. I predict more than 5 million lifetime.
leyendax69 (on 29 July 2013)
Easily 7m LT, I want my copy x)
oniyide (on 29 July 2013)
see Capcom if you actually make a survival horror game it could sell.
eFKac (on 29 July 2013)
116k this week, over 1 million sold in Europe, this game keeps on amazing me!
ZombieVito (on 29 July 2013)
Updated for the week but it's still undertracked. Damn.
nnodley (on 29 July 2013)
How can we pretty much have definite numbers for TLOU in USA and they still can't seem to get it right?
ZombieVito (on 29 July 2013)
I just saw the update for July 20th. They really need to fix these numbers up.
ZombieVito (on 29 July 2013)
Undertracked in USA for about 100K. My god this could actually be really close to 3 million already.
Flippozzo (on 29 July 2013)
990.000 at 20th July?
NPD says 985.000 at the end of June, why VGC don't adjusted it?
Turkish (on 29 July 2013)
Game of the generation.
ZombieVito (on 27 July 2013)
Over rated? Get out.
busbfran (on 27 July 2013)
so over rated hahahha..
Colocho (on 27 July 2013)
So 3 mil b4 Septeber?? It seems very likely! Insane for a new IP this late in the gen to b pushing these #'s. A yr from now, people will b claiming that the only reason this game sold so well is because of bundles >_> just like it happened with uncharted.
ZombieVito (on 26 July 2013)
And now I realize it says NA in the main page and not USA, derp.
ZombieVito (on 26 July 2013)
I thought Rest of the world included the rest of North America, Great news then.
Cirio (on 26 July 2013)
ZombieVito - That's because North America =/= USA only. It's still undertracked here.
ZombieVito (on 25 July 2013)
On the main page it has 1.13 million but on the USA page it has 1.03 million.
bananaking21 (on 25 July 2013)
zombieVito what are you talking about? its around 200K undertracked in NA!
ZombieVito (on 25 July 2013)
Why is it 10K overtracked in NA?
ZombieVito (on 23 July 2013)
62K in USA this week!!
CGI-Quality (on 23 July 2013)
Oh, how I remember the claims that this game would "only" sell 3 million or so. Great to be right, yet again. 5 million minimum lifetime sales!
Turkish (on 23 July 2013)
pezus (on 23 July 2013)
Global Total still needs to be adjusted. I guess we need to wait for this week's numbers to come in
sniper989 (on 23 July 2013)
ZombieVito (on 22 July 2013)
Its always like this.

Why is the next week taking so long to be put on?
ZombieVito (on 19 July 2013)
I see, it has 0.97 in NA now. Not bad at all.
Turkish (on 19 July 2013)
pezus, is this pre or post adjustment?
pezus (on 19 July 2013)
Adjusted up? (wait for it to refrsh)
kurasakiichimaru (on 19 July 2013)
Can see it outselling Uncharted 2 especially during Black Friday. Naughty Dog must be happy right now.
kurasakiichimaru (on 19 July 2013)
Undertracked by 200K according to NPD June report.
DietSoap (on 18 July 2013)
Wow, it's actually ahead of Uncharted 2 and 3 aligned by a fairly significant margin. I remember thinking this wouldn't even hit 3 million lifetime, or just barely.
luisvideogames (on 18 July 2013)
Interesting major drop in sales, will it have good legs? Only time shall tell.
nnodley (on 18 July 2013)
Get this game adjusted up now!!! 985k in US in June. Bananaking is going nuts right now!!
nnodley (on 18 July 2013)
Predicting ~125,000 for week ending 13th
colafitte (on 16 July 2013)
I'm predicting around 4M sold at the end of the year, 1M more in 2014
sniper989 (on 16 July 2013)
Fusioncode (on 16 July 2013)
I hope this gets a PS4 port, I wouldn't mind purchasing it again :p
sub-zero-TM (on 16 July 2013)
This is not an adjustment people! don't get excited!
veritaz (on 16 July 2013)
Or maybe it wasn't >.>
veritaz (on 16 July 2013)
A sneak adjustment I see.
nnodley (on 16 July 2013)
Wow did this just get adjusted up for the first 3 weeks? The week ending 6th is not in the global tab yet.
Heavenly_King (on 12 July 2013)
awesome sales!! :D
nnodley (on 12 July 2013)
Looking at another ~225k to be added for week ending july 6th.
StreaK (on 12 July 2013)
@Turkish: Wanna bet!? :D I still hope you're right, though. It's true, GTAIV wasn't even as good as Sleeping Dogs which I liked FAR more.

@VGKing: Yeah, I could kinda see it going down in price in 5 months time but maybe to like $49.99 and then sometime after the holidays 29.99-39.99.
VGKing (on 12 July 2013)
Well all games drop in price these days. Even though the game is selling well I still expect it to drop in price before holiday season.
Turkish (on 12 July 2013)
Actually GTA will get lower scores this time, a lot of the reviewers know that we still remember the shameful 10/10s they rained on a mediocre game that was GTA4. It will still end up above 90 but nowhere near 98.
StreaK (on 11 July 2013)
...just too bad GTAV will most likely get like a 97-98 metacritic score stealing TLOU's thunder. It'll more than likely take majority of the Game of the Year awards. Of course, it'd be amazing if it wasn't the case but cmon....gta...-_-
StreaK (on 11 July 2013)
There is no way in hell TLOU will drop to 39.99 after a month or two lol. Not if it keeps having low drops week after week. Haha. Seriously, over 300,000 3rd week??? Say yehhhhehhhehh. That's hot stuff right there. U3 did 1.8 mill in the same time TLOU did 2.1 mill. And this is a new IP (albeit still a ND game).
In a perfect world, a game like this would sell 10+ million copies on a single console. Best game Ive ever played, no hesitation.
VGKing (on 11 July 2013)
wow. Imagine how much it'll sell once it drops to $39.99 in a month or two. Easily ~3.5m before the holidays.
pezus (on 11 July 2013)
Looks like an incredible 5.5-6.5m start for a new IP
nnodley (on 11 July 2013)
Totally deserves these sales and much much much much much more. This game actually deserves to dethrone GT5 as the highest selling ps3 exclusive.
aceospades (on 11 July 2013)
This is performing much better in Japan than I thought it would. It's about to catch Uncharted 3 already
Colocho (on 11 July 2013)
Loving those numbers! This game will easily surpass 3.5mil b4 the end of the year. Great sales for a new IP.
BanTiger (on 11 July 2013)
WOW 2 million already !!! Sales r still strong after 3rd week unbelievable!! Never seen such strong sale so ps3 exclusive before. For me this and Tomb Rider best games of 2013 so far.
NYANKS (on 11 July 2013)
Every time I here the word "undertracked" now I immediately imagine Ethomaz and Sony. How can you blame him, they seem to be undertracked over half the time people claim undertracking lol
WebMasterFlex (on 10 July 2013)
bananaking21 is probably right.
bananaking21 (on 10 July 2013)
massively under tracked here. with shipments being at 3.4 million +digital sales i would say this sold 3+ million already. you could argue that 300K (my guess) are digital sales meaning this should be at least 2.7M by now
sniper989 (on 10 July 2013)
nope, they said sold, not shipped.

and i doubt that digital sales accounted for over 10% of total sales
Meret (on 10 July 2013)
@sniper989 3.4 Million = digital sales + retail SHIPMENTS. VGChartz is about sales. Remember Uncharted 3 "sales" reports from Sony - 3,8 million DAY ONE. lol. of course those are shipments, not actual sales.
Turkish (on 10 July 2013)
massive undertracking here
sniper989 (on 09 July 2013)
undertracked!!! sold 3.4m until july 4th inc. digital sales
Kyuu (on 09 July 2013)
Teeth* best.. there, corrected :P
Iveyboi (on 09 July 2013)
3.4 shipped + Digital...wowzers
leyendax69 (on 09 July 2013)
2th best selling exclusive at the end of the gen. Probably
pokymon90 (on 09 July 2013)
and TLOU also has a chance for 500,000 this week ending Jun 3rd to put the total around 2.4 physical sales. So 1 mil digital sales, while still a high amount, could be likely.
pokymon90 (on 09 July 2013)
It's not sure if they meant shipped on the physical discs or sales.
Fusioncode (on 09 July 2013)
Sony said this game sold over 3.4m. I know that figure takes into account digital sales, but there's no way that the game sold 1.7m digitally. Undertracked?
crazepharmacist (on 09 July 2013)
The Last of Us Sales Exceed 3.4 Million Units Worldwide.
thewastedyouth (on 07 July 2013)
Japan fails at gaming every time, I wonder if the game is censored
A203D (on 06 July 2013)
If Capcom can do it, it might be worth collaborating with Naughty Dog on the next Resident Evil game, maybe reboot the series.
nnodley (on 05 July 2013)
@vodkasosa1000 The 1.71m is really only from 8 days on the market. Came out the 14th everywhere but japan where it came out the 21st(i think). So it's even more impressive it sold 1.71m in a little over a week on sale.
vodkasosa1000 (on 05 July 2013)
1.71m in 2 weeks and capcom says survival horror ain't profitable. This game sold more in 2 weeks on only one console than most action games did this year
GameAnalyser (on 05 July 2013)
Should reach UC numbers...much closer to UC 2. Also glad to have new IPs making an impact.
VGKing (on 03 July 2013)
Amazing sales. Already blew way past God of War Ascension.
bananaking21 (on 03 July 2013)
i never thought it would do this good. amazing sales for an amazing game. best game ever created
thewastedyouth (on 03 July 2013)
so glad this is doing great, I hate when new IPs die because all the dudebro retards keep buying COD
nnodley (on 03 July 2013)
I think it would also be safe to say this game is either close to 2m or over with digital sales included. I'm sure it could have sold 200k on the ps store. What does anybody else think?
WebMasterFlex (on 03 July 2013)
So it will probably be 7 million lifetime like U2 and U3.....
nnodley (on 03 July 2013)
Yeah so it's first 8 days on the market and it reached 1.71m. Fucking incredible for a new IP. Can't wait till NPD gets it's digital tracking up and ready so we can finally have accurate sales.
DamnTastic (on 03 July 2013)
Old news bro :P
StreaK (on 03 July 2013)
This is gonna be ND's quickest to 2 million title. Uncharted 3 did 1.3 million in a week and TLoU is already at 1.7 mill. I think this will, in the end, be the biggest selling game ND has ever released and for good reason. I'm having fun by simply just walking through the environments and exploring the details. This is a gem!
rpgmaniac (on 03 July 2013)
I play video games my whole life & I never experience something like this, this game revolutionize story telling imo there is nothing like it, & those visuals.. I cant get out of my mind those beautiful landscapes of a post-apocalyptic US towns, the only minus I can find is some small glitches I encounter 2-3 times but that's nothing compare to the amazing experience I have playing this MASTERPIECE 10+/10 is my score & more than deserve it ND did much more than what I was expecting these guys never stop to amaze me seriously..
Deyon (on 03 July 2013)
Deyon (on 03 July 2013)
Guys, IGN gave it a 10/10

Thechalkblock (on 03 July 2013)
@Goatseye 120,000 people "game".

i have yet to play this game, but i know i have to--i can't pass up a game i've heard so much about.
think-man (on 03 July 2013)
This game was sold out for the first week at most stores I went to. Only place that had any copies were EB games and they wanted like twice the price of other stores -_-
WebMasterFlex (on 02 July 2013)
Absolute Must Have Gaming
Goatseye (on 02 July 2013)
Japan, do you even game?- Wright
They'd rather play the 20th iteration of Pokemon or some life sim than something like TLOU or Halo.

Wright (on 02 July 2013)
Japan, do you even game?
pezus (on 02 July 2013)
This game will easily outsell Uncharted 1 and hopefully come close to Uncharted 2 and 3 :-P
Serious_frusting (on 02 July 2013)
Impressive. Everyone is talking about this game
JC_Denton0451 (on 02 July 2013)
That's a mighty second week number!
Nem (on 02 July 2013)
A good game but not the best game i ever played, thats for sure. It makes it sound like i was born yesterday. :P
BanTiger (on 02 July 2013)
already 1.7 nice !! 2 million in 10-15 days for sure. Best game i ever played in my life!!
sniper989 (on 02 July 2013)
and TLoU is only being outsold by it by a very small margin
sniper989 (on 02 July 2013)
when you think about it, it is selling better than Uncharted 3. U3 launched near christmas, was an established franchise & didn't have a digital download
StreaK (on 02 July 2013)
Ok, anyone that doubts these numbers is in some kind of denial lol. I have the survival edition but I was looking around all over Ontario, Canada for another copy so I could play online with my bro (yeah, we got 2 ps3's) and to my shock they told me this title is pretty much all sold out at the moment. I personally haven't experienced this with Uncharted, for example. If they shipped 2 million then even 1.7 mill seems low lol.
Masterpiece in gaming has arrived, folks! Deal with it!
Deyon (on 01 July 2013)
Deserves MOAR!!
nnodley (on 01 July 2013)
So once the week ending 22nd full numbers are in we should be looking at close to 1.8 million. Pretty damn impressive for a new IP at the end of a generation.
iceland (on 01 July 2013)
Glad to see the sales are pretty good, will pick up when it's cheaper.
veritaz (on 01 July 2013)
@bugrimmar You're right, it sold more.
nia-strain (on 30 June 2013)
This is without a doubt, one of the best games i've ever played..

F... awesome game!!!

bugrimmar (on 30 June 2013)
i doubt it really sold this much.
sniper989 (on 29 June 2013)
probably sold 1.3m FW in EU, US if you include digital sales.

very impressive considering it launched on a Friday.
AgentRedgrave (on 28 June 2013)
PS3 exclusive, and already over a million sales. Amazing, glad this game's doing well. Realistic gameplay, beautiful graphics, fairly interesting and the story, not ashamed to admit, the story made me cry. Not my usual type of game, but a great one none the less, 9/10.
drakesfortune (on 28 June 2013)
I am honestly shocked that this did this well....really this is pretty amazing if it's true.
9087 (on 27 June 2013)
Already UNDERTRACKED. This game sold out almost everywhere.
think-man (on 26 June 2013)
Japan sales are in, over 100k first week.
S.Peelman (on 26 June 2013)
Stellar sales! And equally well received in all regions. Game get's so much praise, it seems I'm going to need to get it too!
Aldro (on 25 June 2013)

leyendax69 (on 25 June 2013)
Really awesome for a new ip in only two days
Shizuko (on 24 June 2013)
Pre-Orders here have sky-roketed after the very postive reception... famitsu predicts over a million copies sold by the end of the year here more than Uncharted
nnodley (on 24 June 2013)
Seriously the best game I have ever played. Playing again on survivor and it is just as amazing. Well deserved sales. With the week ending the 22nd in we could be looking at roughly 1.7mil to 1.9 mil for it's first 7-8 days on the market. That's if everywhere else has a similar 48% drop like UK.
WagnerPaiva (on 24 June 2013)
Well deserved sales for the best game I ever played in my life. The multiplayer alone is good enough to justify good legs on this one. If it dont break 5 million it will be a shame on mankind.
VGKing (on 24 June 2013)
Amazing debut for an amazing game.
sub-zero-TM (on 24 June 2013)
@Kresnik thanks for the info!
Kresnik (on 24 June 2013)
It released in Japan on the 20th. The numbers will be included next week.
sub-zero-TM (on 24 June 2013)
Something is wrong with the numbers, it should be at 1.22 m and Japan is missing? is the game even coming out in Japan?
sniper989 (on 24 June 2013)
Biggest exclusive new IP on current platforms?
oniyide (on 24 June 2013)
insane amount of sales for a new IP considering the PS4 will be out this year.
Kyuu (on 24 June 2013)
Whoa! I just noticed but that's amazing! It may make this game a better opening week seller than Uncharted 3! Crazy stuff for a new IP.
Turkish (on 24 June 2013)
How is a new IP able to post such sales at the end of this gen? DAMN
WebMasterFlex (on 24 June 2013)
2 days sales and already at 1.17m ? DESERVED.
davidpid (on 24 June 2013)
great sales for just 2 days!!
TurismoT (on 24 June 2013)
@Kyuu, this only counts 1 day. TLoU came out on the 14th and the charts only count up to the 15th.
Turkish (on 24 June 2013)
Kyuu (on 24 June 2013)
462,526 opening week USA. Good sales but I was hoping it hits 500k.
ghettoglamour (on 24 June 2013)
@WagnerPaiva: 29 hours? WOW! And I thought I was the slowest person on earth with my almost 19h run on hard. :-)
WagnerPaiva (on 21 June 2013)
I finished today, 29 hours playing, in Normal. Started NEW GAME+ and will probably take 15 hours now, because I intend to rush. Next, I will play on hard and then on survivor =D
quadraticadder (on 18 June 2013)
@ Ultr
Fair enough. I try to avoid burning through a new game as soon as I get it, so I usually use hard mode the first time. Saying that, I've put more hours into the game (still on hard) and I have found it to be a quite enjoyable, great game. I still think that the control and menu layout is a little fidgety in a fight. Slow changing between handguns in a fight because one is stored in a backpack is not realistic. I also found that you can upgrade later in the game to shoot and load the gun(s) faster. So I would recommend that people play this game the first time on normal difficulty (as you said), and that Naughty Dog should start the game with the player not being made deliberately slow on the draw. Let them start with a faster draw. Its a clunky perk to have to achieve. Anyways, great game. Buy it!
Ultr (on 18 June 2013)
@quadraticadder Never play a game on Hard on your first playthrough. I made the same mistake lots of times. Play on Normal, and then see if a second playthrough is justified.
Uncharted 2 played on normal - ended up playing it about 6 times. on all difficulties
I'm playing TLOU on Normal and it's an incredible experience!
quadraticadder (on 17 June 2013)
Played about 4 h so far on hard difficulty. Finding it kind of frustrating and slow (to be honest).
I hope it becomes more engrossing and intuitive. Will give it more time.
SnowPrince (on 15 June 2013)
This HAS to sell well !!
sniper989 (on 15 June 2013)
LOTS of people got this pre-launch week

I wonder how that will affect the numbers
Deyon (on 10 June 2013)
pokymon90 (on 08 June 2013)
So......600k US, 200K Europe, and 100k from all the other countries?
sniper989 (on 04 June 2013)
900k first week would be my guess
oniyide (on 28 May 2013)
the fact that lilobrex lost it here, tells me this is gonna be a good game
eFKac (on 28 May 2013)
LOL lilbroex's meltdown happened here?

The Last of Us = instant winner.
I wonder why though?
Feniris (on 06 April 2013)
550,000 - 600,000 FW (assuming Metacritic 90+) sound reasonable to you guys?
Andrespetmonkey (on 23 February 2013)
Lol! So this is where lilbroex had his mental breakdown.

You gotta love those internet badasses that win arguments they're in danger of losing by using privilege to silence opposition.

This will be my last post on this biased domain because the privileged egomaniacs that head it are insufferable.

Barozi, you are an immature douche. You lost an argument and jumped to using insults. Then you got mad, because I called you out on it and created your own, on the spot, infractions(that were just projecting what I called you out on back at me even though it didn't fit) out of thin air to ban my account and save your ego.


Torrilian, if you are really a writer then I can understand why game journalism has fallen to such lows.

Mr Khan, I always thought of you as one of the better moderators on here but you still banned me once for

Radishhead, if you have a problem with people expressing an opinion about not like what you love, then you are a sad, sad man.

Its one thing to speak against a moderater who is properlly moderating or to go against a warning(things I rarely saw), but another to be banned for not accepting their condescending opinions as fact in a normal, open conversation. I now see that there was really no point in following the rules, because even if you don't break them, they will just make something up at convenience then label it as breaking a rule and ban you for that. This speaks for every ban I've gotten really. Its hard to follow unwritten rules.

No permaban this account because I won't be coming back here. Note: That is a command, not a request. Dealing with manchildren of this caliber just is not worth the hassle when you actually have a life. Have fun writing your last insult or getting another mod to do it for you, to let you save face(which is more likely what will happen). I won't be reading it. I would delete this worthless forum account myself, but this site doesn't give the option for it.

It was nice having a few good and "intelligent" conversations on here with people that didn't take every bit of news they didn't like as a personal attack or an affront to their beloved company/console(Spurgeon, curl, you guys were cool.) Also, interacting with the clean cut fanboys that make up gaming journalism these day first hand has been the most educational of all. Now I know why gaming journalism is so terrible. The only qualificatoin most gaming journalists have is that they play some games and have a site to post their opinions on.

Strangest thing about this site is that even the top level trolled forumers. I would say the bias is unreal, but this actually isn't the first time I've seen such a thing. Generally, anyplace where tech is discussed, you will have hyperbiased moderation that will inact fascist law against opinion that are to far to the left of their ideals of supremecy.

May Sony burn in the hell it made for itself.(I don't really care about Sony or what happens to them one way or the other, but I figure I might as well actually troll once before going.)

Also, don't misunderstand. It is not my intent to throw dirt and run. Its just that all of the mods have shown complete inability to reason and will not exept any opinion contrary to their sovereign word likely typical fascist egomaniacs who have gotten a taste of power. I would gladly tell this directly to each and everyone of your face and laugh while you scramble to come with a rebuke but we all know that you would just ban me and get the last word in after the fact, so there can never be and actual discussion.

And to all the Sony/Microsoft fanboys who view me as the bane of their existent for consistently posting news and facts that aren't to their liking(Pezus, Kyliegod, Andrespetmonkey, Selnor, and the rest), rejoice for I am gone. Now you can troll the company you hate so much with complete freedom from being called out on it...assuming the mods don't beat you to it. lol.

Oh, and for all the PS3 owners, heres a link to the last PS3 jailbreak CFW so you can play Sony games for what they are truley worth. Nothing!

Also, heres a link to the PS3 Skyrim so you can see just how much shit the PS3 is.
