After few years on the market, Halo 3 sold 11.5 million copies.

TLOU + Remaster have a good chance of reaching 9-10 mil this year.

I don't see ND handing it off so quickly. TLoU2 is probably being worked on at the same time as UC4. New IP after UC4 is released.

I had no idea TLoU was that huge. Especially for a new IP on a less popular console released so late into a generation.

I'm not sure how much PS4 people want this, maybe a few 100k in its first month? However, after all is said and done with a budget/GOTY PS3 release and possibly a budget PS4 release down the line, you guys think it'll reach 10 million eventually?

Its crazy how big The Lats of Us has gotten.

Probably will have an LTD of 10 million. Thats up there with the biggest exclusives like Halo, GT and Smash.

Well deserved.

Can't say I think it's deserved, but it's sure damn impressive for a new IP.
And I'm always genuinely happy when a game sells well, even if I personally don't like it.

So it's 1080p/60fps, but locked framerate at 30fps? What?

Why do you need to lock the framerate at 30 FPS if it's locked at 60? It's not going to be locked at 60 isn't it?

That's quite a feat, I'm still on the edge on whether to wait to get the PS4 which I probably won't do for a year or so or just get it on my PS3 finally. I don't normally double dip so it'd be a shame to own the inferior versions, but then again I'd love to play the game as I loved the Uncharted series and I have confidence in Naughty Dog and it'd be great research material.

No I don't think they ever confirmed LOCKED 60fps. Could be wrong.

Since that slide seems to mentioning other features I assume it's going to give us the option of locking the frame rate at 30

That's how I'd take it, but hopefully it's just... I don't know, an option for the 'looks like a soap opera' crowd?

All the other recent games we've seen with 30FPS Lock options have been stuttery 35-45ish messes unlocked, but Naughty Dog has been pretty confidently stating 60 all this time. I wish they'd just release some footage already.

I think they know and are just wondering why it's even an option if the game runs at 60fps

80m PS3 units sold does not equal 80m users. How many of those units are replacement units for failed/broken PS3's.

I actually think it's kind of high. Because although this game got praised so well, apart from GAF, I don't actually know somebody that's played it. None of my gaming pals have. Is there a demo too?

Because some people really do prefer 30fps. One of ND's staffers even mentioned on Twitter that he prefers it at that framerate.

My guess is the "locked framerate at 30fps" is an option you can select if you don't like 60fps. It's totally optional... I guess.

Some people will probably find it jarring to see the game (cutscenes) at 60 FPS so for that cinematic experience, 30 FPS is an option.

That's my guess at least.

Locked frame rate at 30 means they're giving you the option guys. Either you can play the silky smooth 60fps or the cinematic 30fps.

This must be the same argument used for Xbox 360 sales with the RROD.

It probably isn't locked at 60

Or maybe you can lock it at 30fps for a more complete cinematic experience

Maybe some people prefer having it at 30? (or is an old feature...)

Also nice numbers for the PS3 version didn't think it got that high. I'm expecting the next gen version to do a 1/2mill first month.
