Tragically, the Gravity Rush games aren't among them...



Around the Network

Horizon Zero Dawn is 7.6 million?

Could of swore I saw all this week or last week some banner on this very sight saying it passed like 5 million or something. Is this site that far behind, or is that due to not counting digital? Does it really have 2.5 million digital?

Digital has really taken off.

Yeah Sony’s first party games have been doing amazing this gen. Helps that they’re actually good. The Last of Us’s number was the combined PS3/PS4 sales though, so let’s say the PS4 version sold about half, which is still amazing. Uncharted’s definitely at 10m by now.

I would've expect them to confirm it, if it was the actual case.

Might be short from the milestone though.

Well it did take ‘em a year to announce 500m PlayStations.

But yeah, there not even having been at least a nod from Sony or Naughty Dog about a milestone is a thing.



Longer development time means less top level games in the same timeframe. That's an absolute boon to first party content. Less competition translates to higher average sales. This is why I'm convinced that Nintendo does not want "full" third-party support. Microsoft missed a golden opportunity by not being ready for this generation.

Sony's strategy to release throughout the year rather than focusing on the holidays, which largely take care of themselves with third-party offerings, is also beneficial. People can pretend that only the holiday season matters but releasing high-profile content when the competition level is low not only increases unit sales, it buoys the entire platform.

Impressive, but Sony still has a long way to go before it will reach the mammoth sales of Nintendo software.

Those PS4 sales are still lower than Nintendo's 3DS offerings and a bit higher than the Wii U.

7.6m is the total of both Retail & Digital

you are correct about a post about around near 5m sales,it was on this site only

 

they most probably have undertracked it

Is last of us' numbers PS4 only? That's incredibly huge for a remaster

no,those are PS3-PS4 combined numbers

PS4 numbers of Last Of US stands at 6.32m according to VGCHARTZ

 

the real sales are close to 8-9m for PS4 version

Insomniac really do deserve all the success they have gotten. I am so excited for Spider-Man. 

I have high hopes for Ghost of Tsushima as well but I don't think it can get to Uncharted/God of War/Horizon: Zero Dawn/Spider-Man level of mainstream. I'm still hoping it does though because it's gorgeous.
