Ghost of Tsushima sells 2.4 million in three days

Sucker Punch's latest becomes Sony's fastest-selling new IP of the generation

Ghost of Tsushima sold through 2.4 million copies in its first three days on sale, Sony announced today.

The samurai action game from Sucker Punch is now the fastest-selling new intellectual property from Sony this generation, the company said.

Sony didn't indicate what game Ghost of Tsushima toppled for that title, but 2017's Horizon: Zero Dawn is a likely candidate, having sold 2.6 million copies in its first few weeks on sale.

While it topped the list of original IP, Ghosts of Tsushima still fell far short of the sales of some PS4 exclusives based on established franchises. God of War sold 3.1 million copies in its first three days on sale, while Spider-Man (3.3 million), Final Fantasy 7 Remake (3.5 million), and The Last of Us Part 2 (4 million) all posted progressively higher three-day sales totals.
