Sony has put out some absolute banger first-party exclusive titles during this generation of consoles. Their latest, Ghost of Tsushima is the last to join the list and will send the console off in style. The game has continued to sell incredibly well. It has gone on to be the best selling game of July and has broken records in Japan.

Per Famitsu, (via Benji-Sales) Ghost of Tsushima is now the highest-selling first-party PS4 exclusive in Japan. The game reached the status in just over 3 weeks.

Ghost of Tsushima recorded over 330k physical sales in Japan. This passed up the previous record holder Spider-Man from Insomniac.


I loved my time with the game and it certainly deserves credit where credit is due. It has some typical open-world stereotypes you would find in many games of the genre, however, the storyline, gameplay, and overall visuals of the game certainly make up for it. The combat is snappy and switching between different stances makes the player change up certain playstyles. The narrative dives deep into sacrifice, honor, and plenty of other emotions that will tug on your heartstrings. Finally, the visuals. Oh, man. Don’t even get me started on the visuals. All I have to say is that you are really missing out on an experience if you do not own a 4K HDR compatible tv and a PS4 pro.

Ghost of Tsushima is currently available on PS4. For those who want to do a little research before picking the game up, make sure to check out DualShockers’ official review of the game right here.
