UPDATED: Added all Sony exclusives I could find with sales numbers

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I notice a lot of people here who claim despite PS4's high hardware sales most of the exclusives sell very little/have a very low attachment rate.

Doing a little research, I found:

Killzone: Shadow Fall (2013) sold 2.1 million copies by January 2014:

https://www.ign.com/articles/2014/01/29/killzone-shadow-fall-sells-21-million-copies

Infamous Second Son (2014) sold over 1 million copies in first month of release:

Driveclub (2014) sold over 2 million copies by July 2015:

https://www.ign.com/articles/2015/07/31/driveclub-sales-surpass-2-million-copies

Bloodborne (2015) sold 2 million copies by September 2015, other sources say it is at 2.92 million by December 2017:

https://www.reddit.com/r/bloodborne/comments/7um4og/as_of_2nd_dec_2017_bloodborne_sold_292_million/

Uncharted 4 (2016) sold 8.7 million copies as of holiday 2016:

Gravity Rush 2 (2017) sold 102,630 copies in Japan by February 2017:

Horizon Zero Dawn (2017) sold 7.6 million copies as of February 2018:

https://blog.us.playstation.com/2018/02/28/horizon-zero-dawn-celebrates-its-first-birthday-surpasses-7-6-million-sales/

Gran Turismo Sport (2017) sold 7.5 million copies by December 2018:

https://www.gtplanet.net/gt-sport-has-around-7-5-million-players-according-to-my-ps4-life-feature/

Shadow of the Colossus (2018) sold 21,900 copies in its first week of release in Japan:

https://gematsu.com/2018/02/media-create-sales-2-5-18-2-11-18

God of War (2018) sold 5 million copies within first month of release:

https://www.ign.com/articles/2018/05/25/god-of-war-sales-top-5-million-in-the-first-month

Detroit: Become Human (2018) sold over 2 million copies by December 2018:

https://venturebeat.com/2018/12/12/detroit-become-human-sales-pass-2-million-copies/

Spider-Man (2018) sold over 9 million copies as of January 2019:

https://www.gamespot.com/articles/ps4-continues-to-enjoy-great-success-spider-man-up/1100-6464233/

There are no confirmed sales numbers for:

Knack

Knack 2

Littlebigplanet 3

The Order: 1886

Until Dawn

Ratchet and Clank

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

Pretty good numbers I'd think. Not as high as some Nintendo exclusives (Mario Kart, Smash, Zelda) but still very good.

You can bet your ass that if XBox could move titles like the ps4 has, it would have exclusives.

@watercrack445: We dont know what GoW sold, only that it sold 5 million in it's first month. And 9 million in 4 months is pretty solid.

@fedor: compared to multiplayer live service games it's not that good. Live service games have more options to make more money, the units sold and "extra" money from microstransations. Battlefield which sold 7 million can easily catch up and outperform spider man because the microstransations and that is not a good sign. At least for me

Battlefield has nothing to do with Microsoft though.

These games were all funded by Sony, are exclusive to Sony, and the studios that created them are 75% owned by Sony.

Who thought that they didn't sell well? They've been considered a success by both Sony and the devs and they'll all have sequels.

God of War II and III sold only one million in their first months. I had a feeling most of these people aren't fans. Now I know. I'm sure most fans aren't fond of it. I'm certainly not. The lesson is, selling out works. **sad face**

@ezekiel43: It would be cool if the next GOW gave you the option to play through the game in both the old overhead and new over the shoulder perspectives. Don't know if that would be possible gameplay design wise, but if it worked well than that may appease some longtime fans.

I think people say that because of Nintendo. PS best sellers struggle to sell as much as Nintendo's with only a fraction of the install base.

#27 Edited by jcrame10 (4830 posts) -

@phbz: that’s because people buy Nintendo consoles for those select few exclusives. Every time. There’s not as much choice on Nintendo hardware as Sony hardware when it comes to games.

and none of these numbers are official. counting on bullshit and fanboy math to guess sales.

Stupid piece of shit sony cant even give out numbers for their games.

the reason? because they dont want nintendo to look better than them. that has to be it.

@KBFloYd: all of those were real numbers. Was 8 million in a year for horizon not good enough for you? For a new single player IP with a female lead? Has Nintendo done that yet?

Those numbers seem pretty small, considering that the PS4 is approaching 100 million sales...

Nintendo exclusive number will always high because of the limited number of the games and most of the games are published by Nintendo itself so no point comparing them.
