Detroit: Become Human becomes the [7th Week that a] PlayStation exclusive [is] No. 1 this year

There are three new entries in the Top 3 this week, led by Sony’s ‘Detroit: Become Human’ which is the 10th different PlayStation exclusive title to reach No1 so far this year.  Microsoft’s new format exclusive ‘State of Decay 2’ has to settle for a debut at No2, while ‘Dark Souls Remastered’ enters at No3.


Admin note: So, after reviewing the weekly sales, updated the title to reflect the actuality of the stat. There haven't been 10 individual exclusives to hit #1, but 10 weeks where a PS exclusive was the #1 seller.

Addendum: After actually counting, it's only 7 weeks...

The story is too old to be commented.

If you have to explain the joke you failed. And they are just disagrees you'll live.

Brave_Losers_Unite25d ago (Edited 25d ago )


Calling people morons because they may not remember a certain section of a game or played the game? Also having to explain a joke that failed completely... cringe

It's not even a joke...jeez

It's just a quote

BehindTheRows25d ago

You calling people 'morons' doesn't help you look any better. Consider, like them, that you made an error in the message. Nothing to get so defensive over.

OT: Loving the game and am very happy to see it succeed!

-Foxtrot25d ago (Edited 25d ago )

Try to have some light hearted fun...p*** people off as they get offended

N4G in a nutshell

" I just wanted to put a random quote in here that's all, there's no joke behind it!" cringe"

Despite the fact that's the EXACT same thing AspiringProGenji has done...riiiiiiight.

And then when you call these idiots out for their own stupidity the comment police on this stupid site will suspend you......

DJK1NG_Gaming25d ago

Oh man I never thought I see the day
this happen to you in a PlayStation article.

Unreal0125d ago

No need to call people morons if they don't get your quote buddy.

Link2DaFutcha25d ago

Hahaha, just got through that part in GoW, wish there was a "smack atreus upside the head" button.

BadElf24d ago

LOL at all the "cringe" comments to you. WHy are they so offended?

Realms24d ago

Or some people got the joke and thought is was dumb and disagreed, but sure they are idiots for disagreeing with you. SMH

Thing is there are many more Atreus quotes that would have been:

1) Easily recognized
2) Funny

It's especially sweet to see Detroit have success. After beating the game, I can see just how well it was done and how much work went into the game, it's easily Quantic Dream's best game in my opinion.

It's probably too early for this but this is the first Quantic Dream game I would like a sequel to, it's just one of the most engaging and memorial games I've played in a while.

ArchangelMike25d ago

I would love a sequel, but with just Connor, he had by far the best gameplay.

I robot comes to mind as a possible type of storyline, with a 'deviant' android trying to evade capture and being framed etc etc. But yeah there's lots of potential for the story to be developed further.

Only thing is, Quantic Dream don't do sequels.

MuddyWaters25d ago

I have yet to play it but it does look like their best work. I'm happy to see Sony have confidence in them to do games they want to do.

AmUnRa25d ago

Skankin... Calling people serious idiots tells a lot about you.....just like Foxtrot calling people morons..if it was a joke he could have to to just end his post with a emo😋

ArchangelMike25d ago

Well for starters it says that the risks that Sony is willing to take is paying off, and that the investment and freedom they give their developers is invaluable. And also that whatever the games media think of David Cage and his work, the playstation fans obvious still love his work, and Detroit is his best by far.

DarkVoyager25d ago

“Detroit: Become Human becomes the 10th PlayStation exclusive to hit No.1 this year“

Amazing. Can’t wait to play the game myself. Also super excited for Spider-Man!

gamer780425d ago (Edited 25d ago )

says that "if you're not first, you're last!". 2nd place is terrible for a budget game that released at 29.99... /s

Of course playstation is doing very well in the exclusive dept, that doesn't mean that state of decay isn't doing really well.

DJStotty25d ago

That State of Decay isnt doing too bad either

trooper_25d ago

Did I miss something? Who mentioned State of Decay?

Kribwalker25d ago


“Microsoft’s new format exclusive ‘State of Decay 2’ has to settle for a debut at No2, while ‘Dark Souls Remastered’ enters at No3.”

right there in the summary

DJStotty25d ago


The article? or did you not read it and just saw become human number 1 and become damp.

AspiringProGenji25d ago

Because it is a new game. I bet It is gonna drop hard just like SoT did.

Kribwalker24d ago

SOT was the 3rd best selling game of the month, stayed in the top 10 all of april, and just recently left the top 20, after 2 months on the market, with it being given away with gamepass as well. That’s hardly dropping hard, Where has Ni no kuni 2 been this whole time?

Trez123424d ago

[email protected] Ni nu kuni 2 ( and 1)unlike Sot doesnt rely on one or two territories. persona 5, nier automata or even games like Naruto etc...don't light the Uk or Npd charts but they end up selling more worldwide.

I'm not saying it sold more than Sot but bragging about the result of one or 2 territories especially if those results aren't groundbreaking is nonesense because one console relies on fewer markets than the other. why you think Microsoft is rushing in the PC market and Sony is taking it's time?.

God of War is still in the top 10 at #5 while Sea of Thieves has dropped to #28 two places behind Gran Turismo Sport #26 and Forza is absent from the top 40.

So I guess what is says is Sony's exclusives are here to stay.

Obscure_Observer25d ago


Don´t forget that PS4 has a 75+ million userbase while Xbox One has only 30 million according to you (and EA).

Says alot about Xbox One´s exclusive games performance, no?

gamerzero25d ago


This is just UK xbox's 2'nd strongest region so the ratio is much closer.

Obscure_Observer25d ago


"This is just UK xbox's 2'nd strongest region so the ratio is much closer."

75+ million vs 30 million? I would say HIGHER. I agree that Xbox is strong in UK. But not stronger than Playstation THIS generation. PS4 sold more consoles in every single territory worldwide. So yes, Xbox exclusives are performing very well i would say.

gamerzero24d ago (Edited 24d ago )


Whats the deal with xbox fans? First I had to explain what market share is. I guess I also have to explain what ratio's are.

Global - 75m : 30m = 5 : 2 There are 5 PS4's for every 2 xbox's globally

UK - 5m : 4m = 5 : 4 There are 5 PS4's for every 4 xbox's in the UK

So 5 for every 4 is a closer ratio than 5 for every 2.

Stogz24d ago

@Obscure_Observer what a goofy comment, this is the UK only, theres not 75 million sold just there. The UK was a huge xbox territory last gen, this gen not so much. So yes, this does say a lot about their performance, poor.

1. Nothing else is out
2. Sony usually makes good games

Although this game is average to be fair

gamerzero24d ago (Edited 24d ago )

Nothing else is out...

Did you notice the list has 40 games on it? And the God of War was still in the top ten at #5 by chance?

And if your calling Detroit average I guess that must mean the lower rated Sea of Thieves and State of Decay are actually bad.

mandingo24d ago

Yea sea of thieves and state of decay are pretty bad. All the games on that list have been are for quite a while minus god of war and state of decay. Why would Detroit not be at the top of the list?

6th consecutive week with a PlayStation exclusive on top, bravo Sony. Spiderman will shatter records for sure in September.

SpringHeeledJack25d ago

I'm not surprised. Been watching this on twitch and a lot of big streamers are loving this game. It really is a great story. Those troll reviews giving it 4/10 were clearly just looking for clicks.

SuperSaiyanGod4124d ago

I gotta agree, the way this game tells it's story of the 3 Android's and brings everything all together was a genius way of telling a story plus there are many endings that left u thinking how superb a job they did with this game. Besides the clunkiness controls I had and a few areas I would have love to explore more the game graphics are simply mind boggling mixed with a beautiful story. I gave it a 9.2 out of 10 simply for the game it was meant to be which it did a very good job on and deducted points off the clunky controls which if there was better gameplay I could see this game having many 10's across the board.

Even crapgamer gave it a 9 out of 10 and said he was going to play it multiple times because of the great story and different outcomes.

UCForce25d ago

Well done, Sony and QD ! Another win for PS4.

DJStotty24d ago

what did they win? just curious?

UCForce24d ago (Edited 24d ago )

Well, it’s about competition which company deliver better exclusive. Was it Sony or MS ? Of course it is Sony. Well, they are not perfect for sure. But Sony keep their momentum up and up. I can’t say the same thing to MS.

DJStotty23d ago

From a fans perspective I agree, from a company's perspective as long as they make profit, they aren't really too fussed if they come top or second

TheOttomatic9125d ago

Bravo to Sony and Bravo to everyone who bought these fantastic games, show publishers we still love SP games 👍

outsider162425d ago

I second that. Shout out to all those who showed their support to these games.
