There’s nothing I love more lately, than taking some scenic photography in Ghost of Tsushima. Pity about all the samurai stuff and those pesky bandits trying to murder me, it really harshes with my shutterbug mellow. Sony’s final big first-party game for the PlayStation 4 has been a breath of fresh air, a revelatory swansong that has had no shortage of fans. How many? Well in the words of the People’s Champion, millions…and millions of fans.

Ghost of Tsushima has globally sold over 2.4 million units, which is nothing short of astounding for a new IP.

Not too bad! Sony’s had a banner year so far, with console exclusives such as Final Fantasy 7 Remake selling over 3.5 million units in its first three days and The Last of Us Part II shifting over 4 million units within a week, making that game the fastest-selling PlayStation 4 exclusive. It’s the end of an era, and Sony is smiling all the way to the bank as it closes the door on the PS4.

  1. It’s definitely my game of the generation, and you know what… it did it without even a fraction of Last of Us 2’s grotesque PR budget. Ghost of Tsushima’s hype is purely organic, and now with word of mouth, it’s selling even more. Have you seen the numbers in Japan? It brings tears to my eyes.

    Well-deserved for a phenomenal game!

      Loving it so far, isn’t it amazing how fun games can be when they leave the politics at home?

    Hahaha, and now TLOU2 man babies are trying to review bomb the game on Metacritic. I say trying but that’s complimenting them. Because less than 500 even bothered. Probably not enough to warrant an article calling them out.

    It is definitely the prettiest games ever, the way they push the Ps4 is amazing, not the best game or my favourite game ever. It is however very enjoyable, Any game that releases during this pandemic will do good, that is why I am personally so surprised that so many games has been delayed till November,

    I think most companies hope to catch new sales on the new consoles and forget about the opportunity currently. The pie is only that big, our budgets can only stretch that much.
