3 million isn't even close to the truth. It's actually way more expensive. I read about Uncharted 2 production costs a few months ago and it cost from 20 to 30 million to produce. Some sources say Uncharted 3 cost 40 million.

If we see that..... the total UC sales are over 8 million.... each costing 60. Total money earned 480 million.
And if we see the production cost in total.... about 100 million....
So really. Its earning much
But the thing is. UC is highly successful game. The other titles may be suffering way too much....

Not TLoU anyway, it had sold over a million copies two days after the release.

The Last of Us did great in sales. I'm very proud of it.

Most likely 50 million and MAXIMUM 100
either way it's very much a successful (and profitable) game

I think you have to think a little more, Mark Cerny just told in a press conference that Crash Bandicoot costed 3 million, so if the best PS1 game costed already 3 million, what would the best PS3 game cost, my guess is an awful lot more, my guess is that The Last of Us will sell 10 million or something, so that's 10 million x 50 dollar = 500 million dollar, so I think the game cost at least 100 million to make :smileyhappy:

The game almost seems to be really made by cheap Chinese artists.  they outsourced all the tedious work.  I wonder what the real cost would have been they insourced everthing?

It actually sold 3.2 million in the first three days. I'd say they did pretty well. $192,000,000. Neil, Bruce, Troy and Ashley are rollin' in it right now.
