The game broke sales records, becoming the PS4's fastest-selling first-party IP debut game with over 2.4 million copies sold in the first three days.

Ghost of Tsushima's success and popularity in Japan was also underestimated, with Sony addressing a shortage in physical supplies on the Japanese Playstation Twitter.

Translated, the Tweet says "Ghost of Tsushima's popularity exceeded our expectations, and some stores have a shortage of stock. Right now, we're working quickly on the production of additional supply. Please consider downloading it on the Playstation Store."

According to Famitsu, Ghost of Tsushima sold 212,000 copies and ranked first in sales on launch week. It was also the third western developed game to ever score a perfect 40 on their rating system, joining The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Grand Theft Auto V.

Ghost of Tsushima is an open-world samurai adventure and is the final PS4 exclusive before the PS5 arrives. We couldn't have asked for a better swan song.
