Ghost of Tsushima to become the fastest-selling new PlayStation IP; Pokémon GO had its second-biggest revenue month ever.
Congrats to Sucker Punch! Amazing game and beautiful setting. Hopefully we get a nice port on PS5.
The game already looks next gen, imagine how good GOT2 will look on PS5. 😮
Probably will since they are adding the multiplayer. Can’t wait for that!
Hopefully we get a nice free upgrade patch on this one-month old title...
Port? Why not just BC that auto-scales resolution/framerate?
Sucker Punch has its new flagship series
Yeah and it's quite accessible to all levels of players. If you own a PS4, I'd highly recommend this game if you haven't already played it.
We need a sequel in the mainland during the second Mongol invasion .
So it's not niche after all?! Awesome game.
It will probably reach 10 million sales. Probably 5 million at full price. It's far from niche. 400 million revenue generation seems like a given.
I'd love to see it get a definitive edition PS5 release with upgraded framerates, etc. That really benefitted the Last of Us in terms of sales, and Ghost of Tsushima had effectively the same role this gen it had last gen (final big new IP exclusive before the next generation).
JEECE I think we will get that update for free when ps5 launch alongside the co-op for ghost. I don't think we will get new releases for older games we may but for sure day one there will be huge updates for The last of us part 2 Ghost Spiderman God of war Horizon Bloodborne (this one I am not to sure about but I know a lot of gamers would be happy if it were to receive a update that makes the game native 4k/60FPS
Only PS fanboys call every game Sony releases "niche" to make the sales seem better than they are. It sold good, end of story.
Wow, your edge is limitless! You're a circle ⭕
he really is that guy...... jeese, sony's successes really irk some guys.
@OMG and Doggy Man the salt is real here. Games may start niche. Remember Uncharted 1 on PS3 sold 50,000 in its launch month? Sony fosters these games and believes when no one else would and push the games forward anyways. As for Doggys idiocy. Seriously the percentages game really?! Seriously the downplay is ridiculous. By that logic almost every game can look awful. Let me guess this partipation percentages Xbox give instead of sales data is better? Lol
Damn, you're not a clown. You're a whole circuit.
@doggy since when do all users for a specific console all buy a console exclusive title? It must be sad being you looking up the total PS4 consoles sold then working out the percentage of who bought the game,
It should be around 5 million at the end of the year. Especially if they port a PS5 version
More like 8-10 since it's already over 4 million
No PS5 version, it will be backward compatible.
You want to back that claim up with a source?
Yes...this clearly shows the problem with inbred fanboys. They're fact resistant. They'd rather feast on bullshit rather than waste time on actually doing a bit of research. But to people with too much pride, the truth can hurt.
2.4 million (physical) + 1.9 (digital) = 4.3 million total sales This game is going to be a 10 million seller. No doubt.
I'll probably get disagrees for this but I predict ps5 digital to be the main seller nxt gen? Infact I bet Sony are making more digital ps5 for launch than the disc version?
Maybe after a few years but there is still too much physical media from PS4 that people aren't gonna want to just part with.
I somewhat agree. I think it will be close between digital and disc sales. However, If Sony price that digital edition at a tasty price point. Even if they take a big loss on it. I think it will sway a lot of customers to go all digital.
Sony first party studios are in a league of their own. Congratulations to Sucker Punch. It is a very beautiful and fun game.
Just imagine the possibilitys next gen that Sonys studios can do with that SSD at their fingertips.
This is another system seller from sony. One the best games in the market and something that console gamers want to play.
I agree. It won’t move systems like a established series like god of war would, but it definitely made its mark and I think it’s inevitable sequels debut on PS5 will move hardware on beauty alone. I can’t even imagine what they could do with the hardware.
Wow plus all them physical sales easily over 4 million
One after another Sony's studios are on a roll. Sony will use the same strategy it did with PS4 depend on 3rd parties early and depend on your 1st and 2nd parties for later half of the generation This way they can give their studios the extra time to really polish the games and in between sign these massive 3rd party timed exclusive deals(it was reported Sony are offering money for timed exclusives that even Ms don't want to match. I have a feeling Sony will get next GTA times exclusive (rumor has it they offered $750 million for timed exclusive game or games) that's a lot of money
I need to beat the final boss in Ratchet and Clank so I can get to this game 😂
And another one - The Notorious Big. Sony keeps racking them up. Amazing game.
younger dudes would say nah that DJ Khalid, just like how some think he made up the phrase "you played yourself ". Anyway, great game and deserves all it sales, physical and digital. Here is an article that says western devs know nothing about Japanes culture and the game is more like a Kurosawa movie. https://uppercutcrit.com/re...
I glanced at it. The guy is obvious. Saying the game is empty or not fun to play. Not worth reading all the way through. His article won't stop the game's success or Sony's success. Never even heard of upper cut crit. And never will. Straight garbage website. He may be "supposedly" Japanese. But sounds sjw and cancer culture. I mean, cancel culture. Lol.
wow those comments, lmao, ppl so offended for a game xDDDDD, they are not even from japan, sad ppl.
My favorite line from Biggie is "All I got beef with those that violated me, I shall annihilated thee."
Good job Sucker Punch. It's simply smart for Sony to go ahead and remaster all of their major first party titles free for ps5 and charge like 20 bucks for people that don't already own a copy. Think about all the Xbox gamers that didn't play any Sony games ever that would have over 20 blockbusters to play day one on ps5 for $20 each. That would be crazy and good for everyone. This Game was amazing and I hope it gets a ps5 patch.
Deserves every single sale. This game is EASILY one of the best this generation. Congrats to Sucker Punch.
You mean by July.
It's a 5/10 game it's crippled with outdated mechanics it does nothing new, Not as good at Witcher 3 etc etc etc...... So they said!!
Its success is because they didnt downgrade the leaves from the trailer. /s
Still not interested until it his a sale. Gameplay looks dull.
I was very hopeful for this and figured it would be good . But it really exceeded all of my expectations by a lot .It’s only natural that GoT is in GoTY . Shit it’s easily top 3 GoTG for me .
