A few months ago, a lot of information about the narrative of The Last of Us Part II was leaked. Much of this information was considered quite negative and could even harm the economic success of the expected game. However, spoilers don’t seem to stop TLOU fans and many are still excited for what’s to come. Another proof of this has been that the pre-sales of the title have broken some records in different parts of the world. In the case of Brazil, this has become the most pre-ordered game in PlayStation history.
According to IGN Brazil, the pre-sale for The Last of Us Part II has surpassed God of War (2018). That means that, in Latin America’s largest region, the sequel to The Last of Us is the best-selling PlayStation game ever. Of course, these figures can be misleading since much of the purchase of games in Latin America is done through gray channels. After all, the official price of consoles in places like Brazil may sound absurdly high. However, Sony should be quite satisfied with results like these.
Also, in Brazil, the limited editions of The Last of Us Part II seem to have already sold out. Due to the language barrier, it is not known exactly which devices are the most popular in Brazil. This country, like ours, has a gigantic market for piracy and illegal game download. For example, in this country, if they sold the Xbox 360, but they sold it with USBs and CDs full of pirated games.
