Sony’s latest PS4 console exclusive Ghost Of Tsushima has become its fast-selling new IP.
The Samurai-inspired Ghost Of Tsushima is now Sony’s fastest-selling new IP, selling over 2.4 million copies worldwide within the first three days of release.
Sucker Punch Productions’, which released July 17th, has now sold more than previous new IPs Days Gone, Dreams, and Horizon Zero Dawn which previously held the record title.
In a Tweet, Sony PlayStation congratulated Sucker Punch Productions and praised the game, writing: “Ghost Of Tsushima is now PS4’s fastest-selling first-party original IP debut with more than 2.4 million units sold through globally in its first 3 days of sales.
“Congratulations Sucker Punch Productions and thank you to fans around the world for taking part in Jin’s journey.”
Meanwhile, Naughty Dog’s controversial The Last Of Us Part 2, which we believe will go down as a video game classic, continues to hold the title as fastest-selling PS4 exclusive ever and the fastest-selling console game launch this year after the game sold 4 million copies in its first three days.
Breaking Another Record
Ghost Of Tsushima has broken a second record too for having the highest user score on Metacritic ever, including games from Xbox, Nintendo, and previous PlayStation titles.
Following The Last Of Us Part 2’s review bombing, Metacritic imposed a 36-hour wait after the game’s release before allowing anyone to publish reviews on the website.
As reported by Forbes, the title currently sits at a rating of 9.3/10 and has around 11,000. It sits higher than games such as The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild (8.6), The Last Of Us Part 1 (9.2), Red Dead Redemption 2 (8.4), 2018’s God Of War (9.2) and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (9.2).
The game has received rave reviews from players, with many praising the game for its gorgeous graphics, fun combat, voice acting, and engaging story. However, it has received criticism for its somewhat generic open-world gameplay.
