Sales Figures Also Leaked From Sony; Could The PC Downturn Be Reversed?

From Marvel’s Spider-Man to Bloodborne, there’s been a slew of sales leaks after a ransomware attack on Insomniac Games resulted in a bunch of files being leaked to the dark web…


Once again, we have to refer to the ResetEra forum, where a very detailed document has surfaced that shows sales for Sony’s ENTIRE PlayStation 4 catalog, but also shows PlayStation 5 sales until late 2021 or early 2022 (Horizon II: Forbidden West, released in February 2022, is not included!).

The PlayStation 4’s big winner is Marvel’s Spider-Man, which has sold 22.69 million copies in just over three years (released in September 2018!). God of War sold 21 million (released in April 2018), Horizon Zero Dawn 19.3 million (released in February 2017), Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End 18.65 million (released in May 2016), and Death Stranding a surprisingly low 4.39 million (Kojima’s game released in November 2019!). Two disappointing results were left at the end: Bloodborne, released in March 2015, sold just 7.65 million, and Days Gone (which Sony admitted didn’t do well enough to get a sequel), released in April 2019, sold 7.24 million by the end of 2021/beginning of 2022.

In just over a year for the PlayStation 5 (since its launch in November 2020!), Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales was the top seller with 11.13 million, followed by Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart (2.73 million). After that came Demon’s Souls Remake (2.08 million) and the PlayStation 5 port of Ghost of Tsushima (1.86 million; the PlayStation 4 version, released in July 2020, sold 7.6 million). We didn’t see much point in including the release date here.

Results for PC ports were available through early 2023, and unfortunately the trend is downward. Horizon: Zero Dawn started well (3.3 million), which was maintained by Days Gone (1.7 million) and God of War (2.5 million), but then came Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered (1.3 million), Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection (483,000), Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales (450,000) and the shocking Sackboy: A Big Adventure (62,000!!!).

The overall picture is not entirely positive…
