Sony Confirms The Last of Us Remastered Sold Over 1 Million Copies; Joins Knack, inFAMOUS and Killzone

by on September 1, 2014 2:55 PM 107

During the press conference held today in Tokyo by Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida announced officially that The Last of Us Remastered is now a million seller, having overtaken the one million copies mark in sales.

The game joins Knack, inFAMOUS: Second Son and Killzone: Shadow Fall just one month after its release on July 29th.

Yoshida-san also explained that not only retail sales are going strong, but digital downloads are increasing as well.

Considering The Last of Us Remastered‘s quality, it’s definitely a fully deserved achievement. On to the next, Naughty Dog!

    Easy money. Now pump this money into uncharted 4 and the new IP

  • solkeher

    There’s an error, it says Killzone Shadowfall twice.

  • Delsin Boss

    We love you Naughty Dog :x

  • DLConspiracy//

    Congrats! Tbh I thought it would have sold a lot more though. Considering there is 10 million consoles out now.

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      It’s still a remaster. Not everyone’s willing to double dip :D

      • DLConspiracy//

        I would assume there are more who jumped from 360 than a million in all honesty. There is still time I guess.

        • Our games are art

          You make a point. I could see the holidays giving this game a good boost though

        I Triple Dip (First Time North America Collector Edition, Second Time PS3 North America Digital Version, Final Time PS4 Europe Digital Version)

      • toasty

        I’m not double dipping until i can get it for under $30. But as someone said earlier, this game will sell more over a long period of time to people who didn’t have a PS3 when the game originally came out.

    • Spoonyrogdrumps

      It’s not COD, or a sports game and multiplats always sell more. It takes months for most games even if they are good to reach upwards to 5 million or more. For this being an exclusive game to one system only it’s a lot, especially for a remaster just one month in, but you knew that already.

      • DLConspiracy//

        Plus they didn’t really promote it as much as I thought they could have. So..

        • Spoonyrogdrumps

          It’s a good thing you’re not in charge then. So..

          • MS

            The guy is a stealth troll

          • Spoonyrogdrumps

            That’s not stealth it’s obvious.

          • DLConspiracy//

            Check your self I included a picture for your accusations file. Enjoy. :) ♥♥♥♥♥

          • Spoonyrogdrumps

            And I added a response to your picture. Enjoy :-)
            You have a big history all over the internet. You are famous on IGN for your level of stupidity as well as here. I don’t care what you own. You are still an obvious troll and a moron.

          • DLConspiracy//

            I like how I have had such an impact on your sensitive mind. Glad I could help you resort to name calling. It suits you.

          • Spoonyrogdrumps

            Really you think I’m sensitive. It’s the sensitive ones that have to make themselves feel good trolling, but you already know that :-)
            You would deny it though.

          • DLConspiracy//

            I am trolling because I genuinely thought it would have sold more because its a great game? I don’t really understand. You seem to be assuming a bit too much. Its amusing though.

          • Spoonyrogdrumps

            Nice backpedal. You didn’t genuinely think anything boy and you know it. You might impress kids but not me. You aren’t worth my time since you don’t want help.

          • DLConspiracy//

            You done lost it. Haha

          • DLConspiracy//

            Try harder. Your new account has 10 comments. I have never needed to start over to cover my tracks.

    • GameDev345

      Well consider that it actually just released not very long ago, I have yet to buy my copy and there are still many out there who are still waiting

    • demfax

      This game will have legs, it’s going for 2-3 million LTD on PS4 alone.

    • MS

      And Im not surprise to hear such a remake from you, with all your stealth trolling. And you do realize that selling 1 million out of a 10 million install base is more impressive than selling 7 million plus out of a 83 million plus install base.

      • Emad Miah

        That’s deep man

        • DLConspiracy//

          Super deep.

      • DLConspiracy//

        You must be of the “assumptive troll” variety? Whatever angle works for ya…. (Pic)

        • Spoonyrogdrumps

          It doesn’t matter what you have. You are still a troll and really bad at it I might add.

          • DLConspiracy//

            Whatever helps you sleep man. Have a great day fella.

          • Spoonyrogdrumps

            You are the one trolling. If anyone needs help sleeping it’s you.
            Would you like to compare lifestyles next and really make yourself look stupid. :-)

          • DLConspiracy//

            We get it. You’re upset. Can I go about my day now?

          • Spoonyrogdrumps

            Nice try avoiding. It’s obvious you want attention because you lack it elsewhere. I just feel sorry for people like you. I’m actually trying to throw you a bone and tell you that no one is impressed. Trolling online is your day. That’s all you do, and people like me don’t fall for it. I’m sorry if your life sucks but you need to grow up.

          • DLConspiracy//

            You seriously think wayyyy too much. I stated one thing, you accused me of whatever you concotted and now you are blowing it way out of proportion. I am certainly don’t need to defend anything to you. You seem to have it all figured out. I have no clue who you are. Or why you are upset. I guess its because I didn’t agree with your “there should only be one console (ps4)” remark some weeks ago. Deal with it man. Not everyone is gonna agree with you.

          • Spoonyrogdrumps

            I don’t care what people think lol. You don’t think enough.
            Jokes on you if you want to have that attitude thinking people aren’t wise to it. You’re not that smart kid.

          • DLConspiracy//

            Ok … Hope your day turns around man. You are far too serious.

        • Raian K.

          You write like a women. Not a bad thing just pointing it out LOL

          • Rower

            Maybe it is a women…….

          • DLConspiracy//

            Its is not a *woman :p

          • DLConspiracy//

            I will take that as a compliment. No one has ever complimented my writing before.

          • Spoonyrogdrumps

            Take a hint dude.

          • DLConspiracy//

            Gang mentality for people NOT agreeing with the almighty SPOONY.

          • Spoonyrogdrumps

            I didn’t say I was almighty but you sure did. That’s crazy lol.

          • DLConspiracy//

            You make no sense. Delusional.

    • Jecht_Sin

      You’re kidding, right? 1 million copies in a couple of weeks for a remaster that already sold 7 million on PS3? That’s quite an achievement.

      • Spoonyrogdrumps

        Just ignore him. He wants attention and that’s it.
        He’s trolling can’t you tell.

      • DLConspiracy//

        Never said it wasn’t. People keep assuming I meant something else. I seriously thought it would be more is all. I said congrats. Spoony is losing it on me in the comments about it.

        • Spoonyrogdrumps

          You troll Sony and Playstation all the time on here and over IGN. You aren’t fooling me.

          • DLConspiracy//

            OK pal. Indulge me. I may lean but I don’t sit here and hate on PS4 like you are accusing me. Feel free to waste your time. I guess its OK for you to go on and on about one console while I have outright said I own both, prefer one more most times but think they both have their good/bad.

          • Spoonyrogdrumps

            If you would have thought through what I was saying and what I added to it, what I was getting at was trying to change the market where exclusives go away. In order for that to happen consumers need to show that they won’t buy into it. By getting behind one platform for a time sends that message. Eventually many consoles could exist but there would be no more exclusives. Video games is a multibillion dollar industry and it’s to the point where some AAA games have a budget like a Hollywood film.
            It won’t happen though because people are weak minded and can’t stand together on anything. I never needed people to agree with me but they did anyway. I had 90+ upvotes somewhere around there. People aren’t impressed because some own more than one console. In fact most intelligent adults feel bad for people with multiple consoles. What adult has time or would want to take the time, to have all these consoles and all these games. There are greater things in life to enjoy than video games. I’m not your pal,
            but I am giving it to you straight.
            I get greater joy out of life with family and friends. Taking vacations and experiencing new things. You may like some things on more than one console but just because it’s in front of you doesn’t mean you need it. If you want to be impressive to other adults like me or be taken seriously in anything you have to get your act together. It’s an inferiority complex you have and it doesn’t work on me.
            I know you feel like you get a kick out of trolling but you don’t impress educated adults like me. You’re not that smart. What you know everyone else knows and most know more. I get it nobody cares so why not be a jerk right. You can drop the lies with me. I’m not out to get you though you are out to get everyone and it’s obvious. I work hard and play hard. You say I’m too serious. Truth is I’m just too honest and you hate that. I know you don’t care one way or the other, and that’s what’s sad. You are so predictable. If i’m wasting time you are wasting it right along with me. You’re asking for it because you already know the answer. Playing dumb doesn’t work.
            You will no doubt twist this to favor the lies you create but I understand why. I could have just come right out in my first response to you but that’s what you want. People like you also struggle with control. You don’t have control and you hate that. So, you try to do it this way. I was trying to encourage you before in a nice way to stop trolling because it’s not impressive. It doesn’t add value.
            I know you lean and yes you do just sit there. Sure you might play it lightly and get why so serious on me but that’s just an avoidance. You are insecure. That’s why you do it.
            I’m comfortable coming out saying I don’t like Xbox.
            It’s obvious what you don’t like and it’s not either console.
            You don’t like people. It’s your mission to troll the internet and try to make people feel bad or whatever you think you do.
            I don’t need to know you personally. I’m a professional when it comes to people. I can tell when people are full of it.
            I was trying to help you but if you don’t want help I won’t respond to your troll comments or any comments you make.
            If you keep acting like that though you are just going to drive people away. But maybe that’s what you want. You could be
            anti-social or have some tendencies of it.
            Best of luck to you.

          • DLConspiracy//

            Don’t you think you are trying to shove your opinion and assumptions of me in this wall of text? Who are you to tell me who I am? Me writing online is a hobby because I enjoy games and take interest in it. You’re sitting here pointing a finger at me judging me for speaking. I think that’s pretty judgmental of you. Especially the part where you assume I don’t have a life because I own numerous consoles. Way to put down people who enjoy gaming.

            You don’t know anything about me but are completely OK with assuming who I am in just a few short interactions I have had with you or someone else online. I have not once sat here and called you a name and repeatedly tried to back out of the “conversation” in a nice way after you insulted me. You don’t have to like me but the least you can do is be respectful by not assuming who I am and not call me names for simply stating I thought TLoU would have sold more.

            Don’t try and school me on who I am, how etiquette works or call me a moron because you THINK you know me. You don’t. Mind your own business and take a look in the mirror once in a while. Sorry I can’t be as perfect as you. Jeeeesssshhhh.

          • DLConspiracy//

            Hey you got an upvote. Getting close to 90. Narcissist.

          • Spoonyrogdrumps

            You know the article I was talking about don’t play dumb.

          • DLConspiracy//

            The fact you brought up the amount of votes. Is what sits weird with me. Especially while you were telling me I am doing this for attention. Seems… Sort of hypocritical and narcissistic.

          • Spoonyrogdrumps

            What sits weird with me is that you bring up anything at all. I really don’t care what you think. You don’t contribute to gamers or people.
            Get a life man.

          • DLConspiracy//

            Thank you Lord Spoony for you undying help to the community by calling people names and telling people who own more than one console that they “don’t have a life”. OH and then follow it up with “You don’t contribute to gamers or people”.

            GFY You self indulged little twat.

          • Spoonyrogdrumps

            Well if you stop acting like a moron maybe people will take you seriously. Oh and I can call you things that are much worse but I’m too nice for that. Don’t get mad dude :-)

          • DLConspiracy//

            Good luck with your arm breaking off from jerking yourself off. You are a little boy. I can tell.

            Have a nice day fella, pal, buddy.

          • Spoonyrogdrumps

            It’s time for the little girl to stop typing now lol. Oh look the little girl wants the last word how cute.

            Listen to yourself. lol

          • Spoonyrogdrumps

            I know I’m smart. Take a hint, and think before you speak.
            It will help you. Oh look responding again. You talk too much.

            You REALLY like yourself. Sounds like insecurity to me.

            BTW.

            Answer me this one last question before I leave this enchanting conversation. IF you can actually answer it. What on earth is wrong with me saying this? What really gets your little girl panties in a bunch about this?

            “Congrats! Tbh I thought it would have sold a lot more though. Considering there is 10 million consoles out now.”

            I enjoyed the game, bought it and I am keeping it for a reason. Why are you taking so much offense to this?

          • Spoonyrogdrumps

            Oh boy are you slow. I know your history in comments on here and over at IGN. You try to stealth troll. You yourself like to contradict what you say. You said ” I am trolling because I genuinely thought it would have sold more because its a great game?” You can’t be genuine and troll at the same time. Well you can but it’s really stupid.
            Did you think someone wouldn’t notice. You think too highly of yourself.
            Let’s just entertain the idea that you don’t know why which isn’t true.
            My very first response to you told you why. It should have ended there. But being the girl that you are you just want to drag it out.
            You bring up something that anyone can figure out for themselves.
            What you can’t do the math. It’s not my fault if you can’t understand the market and the way that it is.
            You just keep back peddling further.
            Get it through your head. Nobody cares. You either liked the game or you didn’t. You try to set up bait so someone like Ject (no offense) come in and say you’re crazy. It’s a lot etc.
            You play the I’m dumb card which doesn’t work.
            I know the game.
            I don’t really think you are dumb, but it’s obvious you are unhappy otherwise you wouldn’t want this much attention.
            I’m not taking offense I was just just trying to help you.
            Letting you know in the nicest way possible that you aren’t fooling people like me. You like to twist and backpedal.
            You are taking offence to facts and since you can’t solve it like a big boy on your own you attack back.
            I like my self. Of course I do. I’m successful. Is that now a crime.
            You like to twist the panties thing back on me but I just laugh. It’s clear who wears the skirt in this.

          • DLConspiracy//

            Never once said ” I am trolling” anywhere.

            “I don’t really think you are dumb, but it’s obvious you are unhappy otherwise you wouldn’t want this much attention.”

            Wtf are you talking about? What attention have I received from ANYONE? Based on an assumption.

            “You are taking offence to facts and since you can’t solve it like a big boy on your own you attack back.”

            What “facts” have you even presented? These are not Facts. These are your biased opinions of me. Not facts.

            “I like my self. Of course I do. I’m successful. Is that now a crime.”

            No, it’s not a crime. It’s just embarrassing. Especially when you are pushing your own traits presented clearly here on me. It’s called deflecting.

          • Spoonyrogdrumps

            Um yeah you did buddy. Not only do I not care what you think you are wrong. You can tell me it’s embarrassing till the cows come home and I still wouldn’t care. Oh come off it everyone pushes their own agenda including you, therefore the only thing that remains is the facts. I’m not deflecting anything. People eat popcorn to see the crap you type.
            Obviously that’s sarcasm but you get the point.
            They are facts. I don’t give opinions out like that to random people. I was trying to help you, help yourself.
            It’s my job to know people, business, and market trends.
            I was trying to throw you a bone even though I don’t know you personally. I’m an expert in reading people and yeah that may come off wrong to a lot of people but I don’t need their approval.
            I work hard same as everyone else that wants to be successful.
            This will be my last comment to you and you will respond anyway because it’s predictable of people like you.
            You are wasting your life away continuing to argue with me.

          • DLConspiracy//

            “It’s my job to know people, business, and market trends. I was trying to throw you a bone even though I don’t know you personally. I’m an expert in reading people and yeah that may come off wrong to a lot of people but I don’t need their approval.”

            Don’t need any favors from you.

            1. Because I don’t respect you because of your assumptive candor with me.
            2. You have the personal skills of a Diva.
            3. You have been wrong on most accounts.
            4. I am well aware of most all my social flaws and vulnerabilities. I embrace them to be a better person and avoid the possible meglomania that you seem to be suffering from.
            5. Success is not based on finance or confidence. It’s based on what you deem to be success by your preferences and goals.

            Just to see how “EXPERT” you are about knowing people. Why don’t you go ahead and tell me something real about myself. My age. My profession. My Job. Let’s see if you are even close. Since you know what you are talking about. I only ask because of how confident you are about convincing yourself you are right. That to me is a social flaw if you ask me. You don’t always have to be right or else you will never learn anything. Pretty safe to say you don’t know everything.

            Kudo’s to you for believing in yourself. I am sure you need the confidence to do what ever it is that you do. Whether it’s justly deserved or self indulged. You seem young. No offense, but people who talk that way about themselves are usually young individuals on the heels of short term success. Of infantile reactions to a newly discovered quality or freedom one has found withing themselves. I have been there before and tried to push my theories and thoughts on people before actually getting all the information. It’s rude and not a way to conduct oneself professionally. It’s a strong arm tactic to either cover ones own mistakes/insecurities or someone who lacks in humility and the willingness to learn. Occasionally. It’s because someone is trying to trust their instincts. Which isn’t a bad thing, but you are not a mind reader. Omnipotence is not something that is a human trait. It’s a human reaction of a social ineptitude.

          • Spoonyrogdrumps

            You are putting words in my mouth that I’m not saying.
            You are not aware of your flaws. I just pointed out your stealth trolling and you want to make a case of it.
            I never said I read minds but what difference would it make even if I took an educated guess, you would just disagree with everything I say. You are the one trying to convince yourself you are right not the other way around.
            You are wrong and you can’t accept it. I have plenty of money, friends, and a family. I’m not concerned with jokers like you.
            I never said I know everything but I do know more than you and I’m not sorry you can’t accept that. Your agenda is to make yourself feel better by bringing everyone down to your level. Congratulations, you have me talking to you longer than I wanted.
            We are not equals. I will always dominate people like you.
            I learn something new everyday. Hell I pay people to learn for me.
            You are dragging this out and want me to respond because you are desperate for attention.
            You need all the help you can get.
            You have confidence too that’s good. Now all you need is knowledge and wisdom. Oh and stop acting like a girl.
            Time to man up.
            The truth is that I care but don’t care. You got me. So what.
            Go get em tiger.

          • DLConspiracy//

            It’s hard to read what you write. Not trying to sound mean, but it’s true. Plus you keep contradicting what you are pinning on me. You literally say I said things and then turn it on me and say “You are putting words in my mouth”. I am using your quotes in order to avoid that. Then you say stuff like. “Your agenda is to make yourself feel better by bringing everyone down to your level.” I am only talking to you. Because it’s perplexing where you are getting all these emotions from. Where you are pulling this great wizard behind the curtain that is me.

            “I will always dominate people like you” and ” I have plenty of money, friends, and a family. I’m not concerned with jokers like you.”

            Who actually says stuff like this? Are you serious? You are soooo full of yourself pal. I am tired of reading about you stroking your ego. I am not here to boast about myself. Just understand you and you only want to talk about yourself. Good luck with that. Mr. Successful. Nobody cares.

          • Spoonyrogdrumps

            Keep telling yourself you aren’t trolling so I can laugh at you. That’s right you are still talking to me. I’m glad you enjoy it.
            Whatever makes you feel better.
            You aren’t mean you are clueless. Get a life and leave me alone already.

    Will always support the best developers in the biz, now lets blow people away with Uncharted 4, Naughty Dog you have all of our support and we believe in you, now get it done!!!

  • Spoonyrogdrumps

    That’s a lot sold within the first month. I’m proud to be a part of that million.

  • RealityCheck2013

    YEP Fully deserved :P

  • theodor70941

    Oh shit, I bought it and haven’t played it yet……. Thanks for the reminder! :D

  • Natan Cifuentes

    This is just physical copies correct? If so they digital must be equal if not more(or less).

    • Spoonyrogdrumps

      I believe it would include digital.

  • TheLastGuardian

    Very good considering that: 1. It’s a remaster, 2. Limited marketing, 3. Sold in July (you don’t sell in July). A 30 person team effort – nice returns indeed and keeps ND funded.

    Nice to see playstation first-party titles doing well sales wise with such a limited install base.

    • Sexy Mcgee

      Why don’t you sell in July? I would think that’s a great time to sell. Especially this July where there’s almost no competition.

      • TheLastGuardian

        Consumers don’t like to spend money in July. It’s a trend per say.

        • Dfooster

          Or there’s nothing to buy that’s why people don’t spend. It’s a which came first the chicken or the egg scenario.

  • Cry_Zero

    Now give us an Uncharted Remastered !

  • Ciaran

    Glad to be one of them ;)

  • Robin Seaman

    Now come on give me that Uncharted Remastered

  • Dimitri Theodosakis

    Most liking PS4 Remaster Edition ends up Selling Another 1 Million by March 1 2015

  • justpassingthrough

    impressive and deserved!

  • Gamist

    Haven’t gotten the chance to play Knack but it sold over a million? :O

    • superkarma

      It’s actually a pretty fun game. Nothing spectacular, but then again, it’s not trying to be. I don’t think it was really worth the $60 price tag it asked for at release, but overall, I don’t regret it.

      • Gamist

        I’m actually waiting for the right female friend (probably never) to play it with, lol. I heard co-op is fun/worth playng.

  • PrinceHeir

    Congrats SOny and Naughty Dog!

  • awang0718

    1 million in a month. That is really good, especially for a remake.
    Honestly, the only remakes that can sell faster than that are the Pokemon remakes (I’m lookin’ at you, Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire).

  • Alter

    1.9 million is still considered as sold over 1 million :p

    • Craig Sloan

      Yeah I too think it’s closer to that.

  • Christopher Gleeson

    This can be looked at in two ways – one, people love The Last of Us (and for good reason!). It definitely deserves all the sales and praise thrown it’s way. However, this could also be a sign that there is a lack of compelling software available at the moment for the system. Either either, kudos and congratulations to Naughty Dog and the team!

    • Craig Sloan

      You overlooked the people who never owned a PS3 but own a PS4. To them it’s a system seller.

      • Christopher Gleeson

        This is a very good point – at last guess, Sony pegged 33% of PS4 owners did not own a PS3. Using that on the ~10 million install base, then 1 million copies does seem like quite an easy feat. An impressive one none the less, but an easy feat with PS3 owners desperate for titles, and newcomers eager to see the fuss over what has been called game of the generation. Imagine the sales on an Uncharted remaster trilogy!

        • demfax

          According to Kohler/Nielsen, 31% owned a Wii or 360 but no PS3, and 17% didn’t own any of the 3 consoles. Total 48% of PS4 owners that didn’t own a PS3. That’s about 5 million of 10 million.

  • Craig Sloan

    If I’m not mistaken ( I very well could be ) didn’t TLOU Remastered sell 1.5 million copies day one? Just type it into Google and it comes up.

  • http://E-mpire.com/ Omnistalgic

    TLOU gonna hit 10 million LTS I think…Pretty much guarantees ND will have to come back to it somehow. But I’m ok with just a small DLC fan service or episodic content using the UC4 engine if there heart is really in the new IP and not doing anymore with the TLOU universe. I know many of us want to see grownup ellie and her new guitar inspired life without Joel.

    • Spoonyrogdrumps

      The game is too big and there is too much money to be made from it. They will release more games in TLOU universe.

  • tomato_ketchup

    NG should buyback bandicoot IP with that profit money

  • http://www.therealgamers.net/ Matt Clarmont

    Not surprised they said something in Japan. I’ve been browsing TLOU streams on the Live From Playstation app and I see no shortage of Japanese streams of the game. Might end up being a system seller there.

  • kingbain90

    Knack sold a million copies!?!?

  • ANSYS754
