This number is still much lower than what Sony saw with the sequel to the first page titles created. The last of us: Part II, which started in June, sold more than 4 million copies in the first three days, beating previous record holder Marvel’s Spider-Man, who sold 3.3 million copies in the same period. Both games are also ready to receive follow-up to the PS5. Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be launched this year and Horizon Forbidden West will come in 2021. With a massive PS4 installation base, however, early PS5 games are likely to be able to hit these tall characters.
Ghost of Tsushima is Sucker Punch’s first new IP company since launching Infamous in 2009 and the first game since the launch of Infamous First Light, a stand-alone expansion to Infamous Second Son, in 2014. Although relatively routine fun, he still manages to get excited about his settings. Our 7/10 Ghost Survey says: “The Ghost of Tsushima is at best, when you ride a horse and take on a beautiful world of your own imagination, armed with a sword and a screenshot button that will accompany you with allusions to the environment and your own curiosity. ‘ “
