Sony’s first party has finally come into its own this generation, with games that not only get excellent critical reception, but also sell exceedingly well. Recently, NPD analyst Mat Piscatella shared charts for the best-selling exclusives and the best-selling games on the PS4 in the US to date, and they’re evidence of just how well Sony exclusives have been selling this generation.
Marvel’s Spider-Man is, unsurprisingly, the best selling PS4 exclusive in the US to date, and is followed by God of War and Horizon: Zero Dawn. At last count, Spider-Man’s worldwide sales stood at 13.2 million, God of War had crossed the 10 million mark, as had Horizon: Zero Dawn. What’s surprising is that each of these three has managed to outsell Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. Also in the charts is Days Gone, coming in just below Bloodborne, having managed to sell very well in spite of lukewarm reception upon launch.
Piscatella also shared the charts for the best-selling PS4 games in the US (multiplatform titles and exclusives combined), and there are no surprises in here. Grand Theft Auto 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2 are the top two best-selling games, followed by Call of Duty WW2 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. In fact, there are four Call of Duty games in the top 10, while Marvel’s Spider-Man is placed 6th, nesting between Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Following that is God of War.
Take a look at the full charts below, and do keep in mind that these are based on dollar sales (which means they’re based on revenue, rather than units sold), and they’re for the US only.
