Yes, I am about to update it later. thanks for pointing it out.



This is most likely the 5th PS4 exclusive to cross the 10 million mark - behind Uncharted 4, Spider-Man, The Last of Us: Remastered and God of War. It's hard to say though as Sony isn't as transparent with individual games sales like Nintendo is - so you have to wait for the developers to make these kind of announcements for confirmation.



Still not convinced that they entered Ninty’s level



Guerrilla finally got the success they deserve.

I’d say they’ve far surpassed Nintendo. What Nintendo IPs sell these numbers? Mario, Zelda, Pokémon, and their spinoffs featuring characters like Mario Kart and Smash Bros. There’s that Animal Farm thing too which I don’t know anything about but apparently it’s a big hit.

Sony now has Uncharted, TLOU, God of War Spider-Man, Horizon, also Ghost of Tsushima and Death Stranding will easily join them up there. I also wouldn’t count Gran Turismo out either, it could get back up there with Gran Turismo 7.

Lets also not downplay the fact that Sony’s games contend with the biggest franchises out there like GTA, RDR, COD and dozens more. While Nintendo has basically no competition in terms of big 3rd party titles.

most significantly of all Sony has shown great talent in creating new IPs that can do these numbers so they’re not dependent on a couple IPs that rely on nostalgia like Nintendo is. Sony can easily just drop any of these IPs and create a new one bigger than the last. No other publisher has that kind of ability least of all Nintendo.

All of this is great, but I’m just speaking purely of sales atm



Updated the thread with Spider-man 9M sales.

So
UC4 is the first 10M for the PS4.
2nd is a battle between God of War and Spider-man.
4th is HZD.
The last of us remaster could be the 5th.
TLOU II is 6th.
Death stranding and Ghost of Tsushima could be 7th and 8th.
Followed by Days Gone or Dreams.
A spectacular feat for Sony’s party input this gen.
Hopefully we will have 1 or 2 new big game for the PS4.



People downplaying Death Stranding don't take into consideration that it has a multiplayer mode that is supposedly as unique and ambitious as the main game.

Also Days Gone can reach 10 mil if Horizon did. It may not be as critically acclaimed (although I can see it have a 80+ metascore) but commercially it has a far greater potential.

Ghost can steal the audience of old assassin's creed fans considering it will certainly be more polished than the newest AC games and more similar in the gameplay sense (ac changed into a rpg). 5-7 mil is guaranteed. 

Dreams is a wildcard. It can be a flop or Sony's minecraft.       

In conclusion it seems everything Sony does this gen is a success. Their consoles, games and they even have the most popular VR.

GT Sports is now at ~7.1m Players (feb 21st 2019).

Even if this GT was kinda a fail, in that it focused way to much on online multiplayer.... it must have sold well enough to reach a player base that size.
