Forums - Sony Discussion - Horizon Zero Dawn sells 7.6 million copies in its first year.

Looks like Aloy is getting some much deserved praise.

This debate of just why Horizon is doing good has run its course. Neither side will reach common ground and it's clear that games see bundles/price-cuts/sales throughout their lives. It's not exclusive to this game.

So, you folks need to move on!

It's the age old argument.

If this thread turns into a Horizon vs Breath of the Wild dick measuring contest I'm gonna ban the lot of you.

I hope this wasnt aimed at me

Probably the ton of Nintendo fans. But does it matter?

Yes because its all ninty fans. Im talking overall. The game was compared side by side for many reasons. No games did bad. Both did exceptionally well. hDZ a new ip that is exclusive could sell 10mil lifetime. Even if it stops now only a very select few ips done this feat. No downplaying calm down

In that case I'd have to question whether those people know what "overshadowed" means.

Now Battleborn is a game that is known as being overshadowed (by Overwatch). Horizon though, achieved great critical and commercial success. There's no overshadowing whatsoever there, unless your argument is that it would have sold 15m+ by now if not for Zelda?

I get your point. Overshadow is such a strong word, its just HDZ if released maybe at a different time wouldnt be compared to as much as BotW.

There have been any Sony fan saying HZD was overshadowed by Zelda?

And funny enough you acknowledge it on the same post that the overshadowing was out of place, and guess who would be the ton of people that would use it? Yep, Nintendo fans.

10m lifetime might not be out of reach for it... that would be nuts for a new IP, thats exclusive to 1platform.

If people are saying that, they shouldn't.

Adding together all the first-party exclusives that have sold over 1m (according to vgc) brings the totals to the following:

PS3: 106.92m (from 34 games)  (AVG Per Game: 3.14m)

PS4: 59.11m (from 19 games)    (AVG Per Game: 3.11m)

So PS4 is already at over half the amount of exclusive title sales the PS3 sold, and the per game average is almost as high, which will obviously increase with time.



Hopefully HZD2 will be longer.



How many single-player IPs have ever come close to -or exceeded- 10 million on a single console without extensive bundling? Nevermind new IP's.

Sales-wise, this is like the 3rd most expectation-shattering game in recent times, behind only Splatoon 1 and Monster Hunter World. Crazy stuff.

You are right... still that never prevented people saying PS3 was a bad exclusive seller because its top 10 had most multiplats while X360 had more exclusives on top 10 (of course those people ignored all that was outside of the Top 10 and the bigger diversity of games on PS3).
