Sony: Killzone Shadow Fall sold 2.1 Million Units

onPause writes:

Today Sony PlayStation Europe tweeted that PS4 exclusive Killzone Shadow Fall sold 2.1 Million units worldwide which means about half of the 4.2 million people who picked up a PS4 also grabbed this launch title.

The story is too old to be commented.

That's actually very impressive.

ZodTheRipper1301d ago

Yes but I think that lots of Killzone Bundles (the big, awesome ones) are included in that number. Still very impressive and I'm glad that Guerilla is successful with it ...now please leave the Killzone franchise for awhile.

guitarded771301d ago

There weren't any official KZ bundles in the US. I would be interested to see how many actual KZ bundles there were before making a claim.

abzdine1301d ago

impressive numbers, bravo Sony for the good marketing!
just too bad the game is boring, especially after 2 amazing killzone games (KZ2 and KZ3).

x2good4u2x1301d ago

There were in Europe. Normal PS4 was all sold out, I had to get the KZ bundle to get my PS4.

pedrof931301d ago

Thats why BF and CoD sold more on Xbox.

In Ps4 they had to go against KZ SF

ZodTheRipper1301d ago

Well this announcement came from the european PS Blog and the bundle sells like hot cakes here. Also, lot's of people are selling their copy of KZ right now for about 30€.

Of course it sold tons of normal copies as well but there's a world outside of the US too.

Just because I'm all about objectivity, Does this count as spin by Sony. They know damn well 2.1 million didn't buy that game, they included forced bundles as sales. If they did sell 2.1 million that's impressive, but not more impressive than the twitter conversation on this post lol. Lastly this was like the only big ps4 exclusive people had to buy something, the problem is gamers realized their mistake and probably resold the game.

@Corpser lol only 1500 people online, but they sold 2.1 million hmmmmmmmm.

GTgamer1301d ago

@truefan of xbox
Your mad because no Xone Exclusive sold that much so you come on KZ article hating on GG success :/ when Forza 5 announced they reached a million in sales did you see me screaming omg must of been the bundles -_-.

SpringHeeledJack1301d ago

Amazing game no matter what the haters say, you don't sell over 2 million copies by accident.

The multiplayer is very addictive and the tea time spotlight move is too funny. Just needs a patch for the ridiculous lag.

@ truefan1

At it again, I see.

You do realise that people CHOOSE to buy bundles. They don't just buy a bundle with a game they don't want to play. There were plenty of non-Killzone bundles to buy. So why would be choose the Killzone bundle? Because they wanted the game. It counts as a sale.

You are the kind of fanboy that believes every lie Microsoft tells you, whilst trying to call out Sony as the liars - when history dictates who the manipulative, deceitful corporation is who consistently lies to their consumers. Your reaction here is what happens when a person becomes insecure about the criticism that their chosen console is getting, so tries to spin it the other way to make themselves feel better about their own purchase. Telling lies yourself, we can see who your inspiration is.

Killzone: SF is a quality game, but you can't deal with the fact that PS4 still has more games available, regardless of them being exclusive or not.

Akuma071301d ago (Edited 1301d ago )

Uhhh no, the Killzone bundles were VERY limited. Also in most countries those bundles weren't released until December.

Also, if that dude above is THAT desperate that he needs to try and downplay KZ:SF's success, then gtfo.

2.1 million KZ:SF sales, if someone bought the bundle, chances are that they chose to. Yeah SOME people may have been forced to because of the normal unit being sold out, but in all honesty how often would that have happened? Not very.

DarkHeroZX1301d ago

Truefan1 is nxtgen720 on YouTube. Go watch any of his videos and hold your nose cause they stink like hot trash.

ITPython1301d ago

@trollfan - You don't think bundles should be included in sales figures? Why not? People obviously bought the bundles that most appealed to them, and people bought the KZ:SF bundle because they wanted KZ:SF + a PS4. If there was no bundle they would have bought KZ:SF separately. Derp much? Maybe Sony shouldn't count the consoles sold in bundles because people really bought the bundle for the games they came with. LOLOL!!

Counting a game sold in a bundle as a sale is perfectly legit. However counting consoles that were given away for free as sales, is not. And we all know MS padded their sales numbers of XB1's from all the dozens of giveaways they had going at nearly every fast food place in the US + nearly every bag of chips and soda had "Win a Xbox One!!" on it.

solidjun51301d ago

"Just because I'm all about objectivity...."

And that's where I'll stop. There's no need to read any further. It's probably just tripe. I doubt you played the game.

scott1821301d ago

Great job Sony! Very good sales numbers for a next gen game. Congrats.

badz1491301d ago (Edited 1301d ago )

@trollfan

wow, your ignorance and jealousy is so obvious, it stinks! so what if they included the bundles in this 2.1 mil sold? you do know that the bundle cost just a little bit cheaper than buying the PS4 and the game separately, right? or are you thinking that when a game is bundled in, they are given for free? I bought the bundle because I want KZSF and buying it separately cost slightly more so I actually save a bit by buying the bundle.

no matter how you see it, hate it if you want (obviously you already are!) 2.1 mil sold with 4+ mil console is one hell of a great achievement, no question ask! it's mind boggling even when you think that Super Mario 3D World only sold over a million copies when it's THE game that people say will save the Wii U!

give credits where it's due please. KZSF is not perfect and a lot of improvement can still be made but the MP is quite addictive and congrats to Sony and GG for this achievement.

JokesOnYou1301d ago (Edited 1301d ago )

Well congrats to sony....2.1 mil KZ SF games sold in just over 2 months is great.

ambientFLIER1301d ago

"Amazing game no matter what the haters say, you don't sell over 2 million copies by accident."

Uh, yeah you do, when it's one of only a few launch games available for the system...

Kind of like bragging that Forza 5 sold a lot. Well, duh...

miyamoto1301d ago (Edited 1301d ago )

Guerilla bet on the right horse to make a launch title and they freaking succeeded!

Having a launch title have its risks and rewards!

This is what I am talking about!

This means moar Killzone to come!

Third party devs should have launched their titles with PS4 launch.

The Future is Now! PS4
Missed opportunity for some but I hope they can catch up real quick like Drive Club and inFamous Second Son

Ju1301d ago

"Thats why BF and CoD sold more on Xbox."

...but they actually didn't (and BF can prove it: http://bf4stats.com/ )

Also, if those numbers are correct, I have the feeling Sony sells a lot of games online, too. I got only one disk version - and BF was an upgrade - the other games I bought on PSN.

HyFackingDro1301d ago

Killzone Shadow Fall was also the most returned/exchanged game on PS4 as was RYSE to the XBONE. That should bring back the numbers down to like 500k

PoSTedUP1300d ago (Edited 1300d ago )

...and I had the Trolling comment? are you guys on Drugs!? oh wait nvm i see where i may have hurt some feels... my bad.

badz1491300d ago

@HyFackingDro

"That should bring back the numbers down to like 500k"

WHAT? HOW? you do know that GG and Sony only get the money from the 1st hand sales only, right? no matter how many are traded in, the money is already in the bank. the 2nd hand copies are for the likes of Gamestop to worry about, not Sony or GG anymore.

and digital copies are not returnable or trade-able, so there's that too.

Spartan1191300d ago

@Truefan1

No different than MS going around defending Kinect and saying Kinect adventures was the biggest selling title on Xbox 360. It was bundled with kinect so shouldnt that take away from those figures.

uso1300d ago

COD and Battlefield sold more on PS4 worldwide

Prime1571300d ago

@true(x)fan1

Because there were no x1 retail bundles, right?

reaperofsouls1300d ago

@ pedro93

"Thats why BF and CoD sold more on Xbox"

Glorious and well deserved. As the best launch fps game I'm happy to hear it sold well. I'm glad to also know that this seals the deal for killzone 5.

Ps4 is the future and the future is ps4

LOGICWINS1301d ago

And I suppose ull still be here in the future as well..

*sigh*

BlackTar1871301d ago

God i hope they don't make killzone 5 anytime soon. Game is very very very very very avg. Sorry for Killzone fans who disagree with me but the game is COD future mode.
