Hang on - is Octopath Nintendo-published? Eh? Is 1m sales even 'good' any more?

Fair comment about Capcom, but I think there's a certain sort of game that's going to do well on Switch and I think both yer Monster Hunters and yer Ace Attorneys should fit that mould. Yer FIFAs and yer CoDs, maybe not so much.

Yeah all those games are published by Nintendo. I think it depends on the game Zelda doing 1m would be bad but Astral Chain doing that is great.

Yeah games that the 3DS would have got like a new Monster Hunter would do well like you say but at the moment if I was looking and saw only 9 games done over 1m and best is M+R then I would be iffy.

Animal Crossing has sold 22,000,000 making it the number 2 Switch game already and will easily pass MK8D.

That Balla and I might have asked where's the games on Switch, well Nintendo only need ACNH.

I genuinely thought that was the new console and thought, "huh, okay???"... man, this generation is going to be confusing talking about Xbox. Laughing

You say that and why when we get to November games I've got a little explanation what each system means for Xboxes.

One for Buska to chew over.

Yesterday at CES we found out Ghost of Tsushima has sold over 8m units, which PlayStation is delighted with and this is how games media is also presenting the news of that's great for a New IP etc

This has led to it being brought up again that Days Gone has sold more than this, yet if all the rumours are true from a Jason Schreier report & interview, Bend aren't working on Days Gone 2 but a New IP (So PlayStation still doing New IP).

Reason given why no Days Gone 2 is because it was a critical disappointment, now in 2022 the game has been patched multiple times and has a 4K 60fps mode on PS5 along with a positive user score (Know can't all trust in that but most people I know who've played do like it). That people's opinions may have changed on the game.

Apparently going back to Jason Schreier, PlayStation want critical darlings and why the great sales numbers of Days Gone not really taken into account but for GoT it is as the game both a critical and commercial success.

Now I'm not Jack Ryan, so I don't know if he would sooner have a game that gets 10/10 wins GOTY but only does like 3m, but he can slap on a PS5 advert the best games are on this console or a game that gets like a 7/10 yet does like 10m because money as a business I'd want to sell as many games as I can.

Speaking as someone who hasn't played either I'd say critical reception is the biggest factor but also say expected sales for both are a factor. Days Gone had so much more hype and marketing behind it and zombie games surely sell more than Samurai games traditionally but thanks to critical reception I'll only likely ever play one of them and I don't think it'll be the one that "gets good after 20 hours" or features a guy called Boozer.

Guess that makes for Sony the game that's been praised more, people more lively to checkout then a above average game.

I'm not sure Ghost of Tsushima was critically acclaimed though. Its reviews are all over the place: 6/10s from Edge, Guardian, VGC; a 7/10 from Gamespot; Eurogamer and Kotaku laid into it; IGN's 9/10 sticks out as the main glowing review.

I really enjoyed the game and think most reviews were harsh on it. Days Gone has never appealed to me, just from the way it looks and presents itself. Grey and post-apocalyptic, it looks very 2008. A game you'd see in CEX a lot. In fact those sales figures for Days Gone have been disputed as the numbers are based on trophies, not purchases.

It's how it's been described but yeah GoT is on 83 on Metacritic.

This makes a lot more sense, Days Gone has been given away on PS Plus and is still available to all PS5 owners in the PS Plus collection so I could totally believe this.

This has got to be mostly user feedback though, right? Days Gone probably sold a lot, but then everyone went "it's OK I guess" and I suspect market research suggests that people don't really want more of it. Loads of people (and this includes me) bought tickets to see Star Wars Episode I on launch day - I bet far fewer bothered turning up for the rest though. Whereas Ghost of Tsushima might have been a little janky, but people were talking about it, and I would imagine there's more excitement for what else that could do as opposed to Days Gone.

EDIT: @Treesmurf saw your post come in as I was writing this. I was trying to avoid my personal opinions on the game being an example of global user feedback, but, having checked my PS4, I do indeed technically own Days Gone! I'll begin ignoring it immediately.

I guess but like said people that played it outside of the critical sense do seem to like Days Gone.

What I'm thinking is it do quite well, people do like it, PlayStation still trying new things but also want sure fire hits and this guy who was at Bend, just a bit cheesed off.

Didn't Days Gone also have a really bloody long development cycle? I can imagine Sony not being in a rush to greenlight a sequel considering Ghost of Tsushima was probably developed in half the time, likely sold more (not buying the Days Gone sales figures considering the guy's source was a trophy site and considering the game's been readily available on PS NOW and Plus) and also was reviewed much more favourably as well.

For what it's worth, I didn't mind Days Gone. It was fine enough for what it was, but then again, I got it for free with my PS5 on the Plus Collection. I might not have been as kind to it had I paid money for it.
