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.

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!
