Is it really though? I probably should have called out the VGC article for the same thing, but hey, better late than never, right?

But anyways, is it the 2nd biggest PS4 launch of the year (ie. above one of FIFA/COD) or is it the 2nd biggest PS4 exclusive of the year (ie. below Days Gone)?
Those are 2 very different things...

It's the second biggest PS4 exclusive:

"It's the second biggest PS4 exclusive and the second biggest new IP released this year, behind another PS4 exclusive -- Days Gone, which was released in April. Compared to that, Hideo Kojima's new title sold 36% fewer units at launch."

Edit:

Just realised it also says exclusive in the OP.
