Sucker Punch’s open world game surpasses Spider-Man’s record.
Ghost of Tsushima has been selling incredibly well around the world since its launch less than a month ago, but in some regions, it’s been enjoying particularly impressive sales. In Japan, for instance, the game has been seeing consistently solid sales every week, with Sony even saying at launch that it was selling better than they had expected, and recently, the open world samurai epic crossed a significant milestone.
As per the latest weekly physical sales data in Japan provided by Famitsu (via Benji-Sales on Twitter), Ghost of Tsushima has sold over 330,000 physical copies in Japan in just over three weeks. That’s a significant number because it means it has now become the highest selling first party PS4 exclusive in Japan to date, surpassing the record previously held by Marvel’s Spider-Man, which released in 2018.
Ghost of Tsushima has seen excellent sales on a global level. Within just three days of release, it had sold 2.4 million copies. Recently, we found out that in the US, it enjoyed the fourth-biggest launch month for a Sony game to date.
Ghost of Tsushima is available on PS4. You can read our review through here.
