That is still not profit.Lmao no. There's not a chance in hell it would need to sell 7 - 8 million just to start generating profit. That's just utter nonsense.
Just looking at the digital sales alone which were 2.8 million in 2 weeks netted them $160 million, and that's not even accounting for additional revenue generated w/ deluxe
It needs to make $300m.
Once you done paying all the budget cost of the game, you will also need to pay the employees bonus, the company which made the game, then sony and their investors.
$180m wont do shit.
Look at avatar movie. It made $1b sales, and its still not profitable.
It needs to pass the target sony put on it, to make it profitable.
