Days Gone is enjoying some excellent numbers in Japan, with more than 100,000 copies sold in its debut week, a tremendously meritorious figures taking into account the marked western spirit of the work. Now it’s time to compare it with other exclusive PlayStation 4 video games also in its premiere week.
God of War, for example, sold only 46,091 units in its startup in Japan, a figure that is almost one third part of the 114,319 copies of Deacon St. John’s adventure and that is explained by the scant interest traditionally held by the Kratos brand in the Japanese country, where he has always moved more or less in those numbers in his first days on sale.
On the other hand, IPs also of western profile, the numbers are much more even. Horizon: Zero Dawn, for example, debuted with 116,997 units, barely 2,500 more than the title of Sony Bend.
If we want to establish some more figures in line with what a product more attractive to the Japanese can offer, a proposal as hardcore as Bloodborne premiered with 152,567 copies. While at JRPG as Persona 5, I managed to sell 264,793 games in his debut. Yakuza 6, meanwhile, began its journey with 201.211 sold games.
When the sales data of the title in the British market came out we also proceeded to measure with each other. Here you can see how I gave Days Gone compared to other PS4 exclusive in the UK.
