Sony is celebrating another successful PS4 unique launch, this time lauding the early sales success of Sucker Punch’s Ghost of Tsushima. The first video game from Sucker Punch in six years handled to make a big effect.
The new open-world action game has actually offered over 2.4 million copies within the first three days of launch. This makes it Sony’s new fastest-selling initial IP, with the previous record belonging to Horizon Zero Dawn. This likewise puts Ghost of Tsushima ahead of other PS4 exclusives, such as Bloodborne, Days Gone, and Knackin regards to preliminary sales. Yes, it managed to beat Knack, the best game of all time.
This figure is still far lower than what Sony has actually seen with sequels to established first-party titles. The Last of Us: Part II, which introduced in June, sold over 4 million copies in its first 3 days, beating out previous record-holder Marvel’s Spider-Man which offered 3.3 million copies in the exact same duration. Both video games are also set to receive follow-ups on the PS5, with Spider-Man: Miles Morales releasing later this year and Horizon Forbidden West coming in 2021. With the PS4’s enormous install base, however, it’s not likely early PS5 video games will be able to strike those high figures.
