Naughty Dog, I just want to say...

[ Edited ]

...that I hope you guys make an absolute KILLING with The Last of Us in sales. I'm talking 7-9 mill at least.

 

Why, might you ask? Well it's not so much about the $$ (although it's certainly a plus). I just think it's about time Naughty Dog received the worldwide acclaim they've deserved for years now. When Uncharted 2 came out, gathered 10/10's across the board, and swept pretty much all GOTY awards, it annoyed me to no end that so many of my PS3 owning friends still scratched their heads and said "Uncharted...wah?" whenever I talked about the game.

 

Then Uncharted 3 came out and had somewhat similar success. But yet again, it seemed like I was the only person in my school talking about it. Even the people who called themselves PS3 'fanboys' were still too focused on BF3 or Skyrim to even give this game a shot.

 

So now here's The Last of Us, the game that pretty much all of the press are calling the top dog for GOTY. And I feel like general interest in this game has soared thanks to the early reviews (at least among my group of friends). Heck, I myself was originally going to hold off on TLOU until later in the summer because I already have a huge gaming backlog....but once I saw the perfect scores rolling in, I said 'screw it' and put down my pre-order. Naughty Dog's made fantastic games since the Crash Bandicoot days and I'm not about to stop supporting them now. Which is why I'll try convincing every PS3 owning friend I know to get this game.

 

So...yeah, sorry about the rant (is this even a rant?), but I just really really want this game to turn Naughty Dog into a household name like Bungie, Valve, and Rockstar. As far as I'm concerned, it's long overdue.

 

Keep doing your thing, ND. And best of luck with TLOU!

People that scratch their heads when they hear about Naughty Dog titles are casuals. I think that's a good thing, this way Naughty Dog tries to be unique instead of appealing to the mass. Saleswise is Naughty Dog always doing a great job they are a beloved company among the people that've been with PlayStation for years. They do get worldwide acclaim just not by the huge mass but by the more serious gamers. Some of my friends like gaming as well but just casual games like Call of Duty or FIFA.

Uncharted 2 = Over 6 million

Uncharted 3 = Over 6 million

Same as Gears Of War series, Battlefield 3, Red Dead Redemption and many more  sell.

I hope they make lots of money off it so they can make a sequel or a brand new IP.

Are those numbers for sure? I thought they were 3-4 million each?

Yep, I got it from VGchartz. The most reliable gaming charts site. Actually not so reliable because they miscount sales and they are always  two weeks behind. That is why I wrote over before the number.

And last E3 Naughty Dog stated that the Uncharted series sold over 17 million units.
