Other sales figures released by Sony includes that Spider-Man: Miles Morales has sold over 6.5 million copies since its launch last year. PS5 exclusives Returnal, released in April, has exceeded 560,000 copies, andRatchet & Clank: Rift Apart, which was released last month, is already on over 1.1 million units worldwide.

Yeah that’s not great. Drop the price, add a save mechanic, and hopefully it attracts a lot more people.
On one hand I want a sequel, on the other hand I don’t. I’d love to see them bring these tight shooting and traversal mechanics to a single player adventure.

figures. 10m console. Not every ps5 owner will buy all new games. everyone ha different tastes. Its why death stranding sold 5m copies on 116m ps4, and pc 120m steam.

game will have more sales, once they have more ps5. My estimate is 4m-8m by the end of 4 years. depends on how much ps5 is sold.

They probably won't be returning to this franchise.

They not to drop the price on this amazing game. People are starving for content and this game should be an easy million seller at a more reasonable price point and at this point in the consoles life cycle with how many consoles are out there.

Game is absolutely brilliant, go and buy it! Don't listen to me even Sony says its a mega hit!

The whole game is based around not being able to save imo.

7% attach rate…

And Bloodborne has probably a less attach rate with 6 years of sales….. Your point doesnt mean much lol

Returnal Reviews were excellent and sales have been good for 3 months.

Its no Horizon, Ghosts of Tsushima as new IP sales go but it probably a fraction of the costs of those games and the team is much smaller

That’s probably why Sony hasn’t done shit with Bloodborne despite the vocal minority yelling for performance patches and remasters.

Not brought it yet but will add myself to that tally soon enough. Think I own all of housemaque's games since super stardust. £70 price point just put me off initially, waiting on £40 then I'll bite.

Demon Souls PS3 sold much less. But its gotten love from Sony.
I love Bloodborne, probably my favourite game fo the generation along with Fire Emblem 3 houses

At $30 price point Gamestop is selling it for used, seems like a much better ask. Hope they adjust it soon.

As someone who plays a bunch of these types of games that all let you save, I don’t buy it.

You cant exactly save in Deadcells either.
In Returnal you at least get a save point after level 3/Biome 3.
And you can use quick portals to get to Biome 2/3 from Level 1. Or a Quick portal to Biome 5/6 from Level 4.

How easy do people want it for a Rogue like

Pretty good for one of the most uncompromising games out there for next gen. Easily my GOTY.

I also don’t want a direct sequel, I want a spiritual successor and since Housemarque is now 1st party I expect this to be the case.

That's 35+ million in revenue on a game that probably had a shoestring budget. That's impressive, when considering their revenue for 2020 was 14.7million.
not to be picky but you need the marketing cost of the game. Sony did spend a lot marketing it.
