I find it hard that Ghost of Tsushima, a game that is pretty unique, have great user reviews, didn't give any boost at all to sales. Is the inventory still low?

At PS4's age, nearly everyone who wants one already has one, so individual games don't sell systems to the extent that they do in a system's early or mid life.Those who would've bought a console for GoT largely already jumped aboard for the many previous exclusives Sony has put out over the last six years.

I know, even TLOU2 didn't had a considerable impact on the week sales.
