I don't know why they get worked up for it they have no intention of owning a ps5 or anything playstation related. But still in every thread fuming




You are salty as fuck.
There was a thread about digital sales.
If no one would want horizon you would find on ebay for a 10 or something, guess what you can't.
People love good games and when comes with a great console and they can save 20 quid win win.
This guy is always trying to downplay any PlayStation success. Look at his post history, it’s all he does. And it’s honestly tiresome to go into every single Sony thread and having this guy derailing them with shitty uninformed platform warring takes.

Bundled games are counted. Regarding hzd2 I thought it was a little scummy of Sony to bundle it when the ps5 is still impossible to find. So people that want a ps5 need to buy hzd2 as well, which many may not want to buy.

With Nintendo I don't think they've recently did a bundle when the console was facing the type of scarcity that the PS5 is currently. They did Mario kart a couple of years ago I think but the Switch was readily available.

Wii sports is one of the best selling games ever but I think everyone realizes that's the case because it was a Bundled game. But I think Nintendo actually included it for free. That's not what Sony is doing here.
As someone who tried to get a Switch in 2020, yes they had severe stock issues.

Bundles included.

Lets not forget that the latest update would've spiked the sales as well, so bundles are only one part of the story for haters to run with.

Game patches don't have impact on sales the way you think they do lol.

The patch also came out 2~3 days ago, this data is for last week sales.

It's the bundles. The article in OP says as much.

Also don’t forget all the people super stoked for Call of the Mountain seeking to get caught up on the Horizon world well before its release.😃

I don’t think that’s something relevant tbh. The game is good and is having good sales. This is going to be one of the biggest games for Sony this gen.
I’m betting they’ll be bundling this with God of War Ragnarok in the future too.

PS5 stock is ramping up significantly. I'm seeing stock much more often now. I know a few people who were easily able to get one recently.
It's obviously the scalpers. You see they buy PS5 consoles and hold onto them for years without selling or playing them. You can't count them as purchases. So even if you sell more, you didn't.

It would be with the last weeks sales (6 days ago, time flies).


I still don't think there would be an influx of sales based on a game update.

Like I said, the article in the OP acknowledges the bundles contributing to the spike in sales.

It's people looking for PS5s and getting the game as a bonus along with it.

When the sales figures are announced, you're going to have people saying, "This was mostly due to bundles."

These are the same people who celebrate the player count on many Xbox games, even though it's on Game Pass and Microsoft loves handing out 1 dollar subscriptions left and right.

I don’t think it’s only bundles, but yes, it’s part of it and it’s fine. It’s a good game and hardware showcase after all.

You think you're so clever that you don't even realize this bundle includes a digital code and not a physical copy, lmao.

But hey...whatever makes you happy. I bet i could do what you just did for even Elden Ring but okay...
He was being sarcastic I guess since these are mostly ps4 versions and the console comes with the ps5 version.
It would be a moot point if serious.

Bundles are not okay for sure...It's happening since ever but nooo. That's just wrong.

20M overall players on a game available with a subscription you can get for 1 dollar? HELL YEAH!! Now that's a hit!

Yeah it's hard to tell what difference an update would make to increase the sales, though good news travels fast so probably accounted for some.
