For comparability functions, Ghost of Tsushima launched only a month after The Final of Us 2 however not like the latter, it acquired the Director’s Minimize therapy for the PS5. Regardless of this, Ghost of Tsushima offered by eight million copies on each platforms as of January 2022.

Opinion: The psychological gymnasts are coming for Naughty Canine
Zarmena writes… The success of The Final of Us 2 doesn’t come as a shock to these of us who didn’t take pleasure in psychological gymnastics surrounding the sport’s gross sales. Whilst I sort this, somebody might be cracking their knuckles and on the brink of clarify how their buddy of a buddy noticed a pile of the sport’s copies sitting on their nearest retail retailer’s recreation cabinets and therefore, The Final of Us 2 gross sales figures can’t be proper (supply: belief me, bro). Others will insist that Ghost of Tsushima’s gross sales are spectacular however The Final of Us 2’s aren’t and pull out a chart of the PS4 set up base to justify that nonsense. However the reality is, The Final of Us 2’s success was by no means going to be dictated by Firstname Bunchanumbers shouting on Twitter. Buckle up, we’re going to see much more of Neil Druckmann and The Final of Us!
In different information, Saints Row’s leaked customization recreation is now obtainable to obtain totally free, and The Final of Us multiplayer is greater than we expect.
