Despite being one of the worst PC ports ever made by Sony, The Last of Us Part I made more than $15 million in the first month since the game came out.
The Last of Us Part I for PC is, without any doubt, one of the technically worst PC ports that have been released in the last couple of decades. The game had so many bugs that memes depicting the main characters, Joel and Ellie, in not-so-proud editions have already started circulating on the Internet.
And despite the technical disaster, Sony nonetheless sold an astounding 368,000 copies of the game in its first month of sales on both Steam and Epic Games .
When you deduct the commissions that companies pay when the game comes out on these PC launchers, Sony is left with an incredible $15.5 million in profit from what we can safely say is the worst PC port they've released so far.
Significantly better sales results have been achieved so far by Marvel's Spider-Man on PC, with 1.5 million copies sold in the span of eight months that the game has been out for PC. For other Sony games released last year, including Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection , Spider-Man: Miles Morales , Returnal , and Sackboy: A Big Adventure, Sony did not release sales results.
Sony expects fiscal year 2023 revenue to be $450 million, or $200 million greater than fiscal year 2022 revenue. We don't currently have any information on the upcoming announcement of new Sony PC ports. Of course, tonight at the new PlayStation Showcase, this may already have changed.
