The Last Guardian was 10 years in the making, but it was outsold at launch by Dead Rising 4.

Not only that, but the PlayStation 4 exclusive sold fewer copies in its week of release than Dead Rising 4 did just via its physical Xbox One release.

WTF is this?

Expected, marketing has been weak in the UK. I don't think Sony was expecting to sold a lot of copies tho. At least it sold more than SotC.

Even more than usual, the position on the chart is fairly meaningless this week. There are handfuls of units between chart positions, so don't get hung up on that.

Lol, they didn't waste any time - I don't understand how the second sentence differs from the first.. are they trying to emphasise that an XBO title sold more then a PS4 one ?

So in other words, DR4 outsold TLG.

Why not just bloody say that??

That's good to know at least.
What was the lower band on SoTC UK release?

I remember numbers being thrown around a few PAL threads ago.

Yeah a bit bizarre coming from Eurogamer.
Don't know why they just can't phrase that as plainly as possible without stirring the pot lol.

Nice opening for The Last Guardian relative to the other two titles in the "trilogy." I'm slightly optimistic given this outcome and Sony's statement about preorders exceeding their expectations.

Dead Rising 4 must be nearly tied with Final Fantasy XV, and The Last Guardian shouldn't be too far either assuming that splits are similar to last week (~ 80% for PlayStation 4).

3 XBO Title versus 2 for PS4 in Top 5.
16 XBO Title vs 16 for PS4.. Look like XBO again winning the hardware race in UK after a bad November..

Are you just keeping the joke running at this point? You can't be that stupid.

Interesting. We know FFXV and Dead Rising are above half of FIFA 17 (since they are both above the xbox one SKU), so they both did above 30.4 k. From the 75% drop, we can derive that FFXV did more than 121.6 k in its first week. So for the first week:
FFXV = 121.6k-135k; and for second week:
FFXV = 30.4k-33.8k. This brings the total to:
FFXV = 152k-168.8k.

Edit: forgot about last gen skus of FIFA. That makes this estimation uncertain at best.

We don't know that as we don't know the split for FIFA. It could be a deal more than half on the PS4 side.

Don't forget about Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 SKU's. We can't be sure that the Xbox One version of Fifa 17 sold at least 50% of units.

But we know for FIFA that xbox one is higher than ps4, so xbox one fifa is higher than 30.4k. Also, FFXV combined is higher than dead rising, and Dead Rising is higher than FIFA 17 xbox one, so a fortiori FFXV combined is higher than 30.4k.

Edit: darn, forgot about last gen skus. That complicates matters.

That should put TLG in the high 20s which is a very solid debut around TF2 numbers.

I am 100 % sure that TLG outsold Dead Rising (the whole franchise combined) in it's launch week.*

Not to mention that article originally made zero mention of the fact that DR4 was released on Tuesday, TLG on Friday (you know, something that would likely have a significant effect on respective sales by the reporting date). When I and others pointed this out in the comments, the article was stealth-edited to include this with no mention of it being an update. Poor journalism all round from Eurogamer on this occasion.

I'd probably go for 20-30k and being December hopefully 7th is about that but I'm being optimistic. More like 15-20k.

From what I read about ICO sales in the mid 2000s I was one of the few people who bought ICO at launch worldwide. SOTC picked up a bit of late hype in the US but its very niche. I'm sure total sales after 12 months will be enough.
