The July 2020 NPD results have been released, with Ghost of Tsushima at the top of the charts. Paper Mario: The Origami King debuted at the #3 spot and — as usual — the Nintendo Switch was the best-selling console for the month.
Must sting (for whatever reason) a little bit to the haters that TLOU 2 is still doing well.
It's cut and dry. They wanted desperately for it to fail (for many different reasons) and it's unsurprisingly, a huge success.
@potatoseal It's good game though. I hope they make part 3, I will like to see what the fireflies are up to.
Sequel to one of the most beloved games of all time with perfect 10s from almost every major website: 6M players so far in 2 months. New IP with almost zero pre-release hype: 4M players so far in 1 month. "Huge Success"? You do the math. Source: https://gamstat.com/games/
mrsolidsteel20 We the vocal minority make up for a small percentage of overall gaming community. Most don't visit gaming sites so they don't know neither do they care. It's already one of the best and top 5 in money generating exclusives on PS4(that's even more impressive considering it just released)
Top 3 no?

Does it make a difference when GoT is the better game by most users reviews 🤷♂️
Obviously review-bombing produces useful information we should definitely rely on. Also I love that the premise of your argument is that, because Game A is great, Game B is not. Which makes no sense, of course.
Does it matter? Lol what sort of a question is that? Of course it does! It's sold very well, so we can expect the franchise to continue, which I'm looking forward to!
Still trying I see...spin those tails boy! lol
Yep. They threw everything they had at it. I'm not convinced that they didn't have some impact, but my guess is they cost tens of thousands of sales, or at the absolute most, one hundred thousand. As neutralgamer1992 points out, the vast majority of people don't visit game sites and probably had no clue about leaks or all the manufactured controversy, so it's not like that was going to cost millions of sales. I doubt it will reach the sales numbers of the first game without a well-timed remastered version for PS5 though, and some attractive bundles. Both of those things really helped the first game.
GOT is a beast!
Where are those supposed mass returns at? Funny thing is they were just repeating what haters on Youtube were saying. Can't even think for themselves lmao.
Sony is at the top of their game. Their single player games are best in class and keep getting better.
Good to see 2 great PS exclusives sitting in the top 10.
Best Selling MS's game is Minecraft...the PS4 edition. IRONIC!
But those inbred greasy chumps said that single player games don't sell. Is it is possible they don't have a clue in their defective minds?
Inbred greasy chumps haha what the hell man
As well it should be. Fantastic game. I just finished it Monday. I might actually go for the platinum on this one. That wouldbe a first for me.
Not surprising, Microsoft hasn't released anything for a long time.
