Such an amazing game, I hope it continues to sell well into the future. No doubt the PC version is being worked on and will come out in due time, as being a Sony-published title, it will probably follow the usual rules for them (12-18 months after PS5 release).

Word of mouth is pretty good for this one, Like everyone says its a great game. User score on metacritic is high. I think it'll have decent legs, and keep selling well for a while yet. Once a PC port is made, and it gets another push of marketing,.... It'll keep going.

Very impressive numbers. Certainly wasn’t expecting it to do this well (being a new IP). Congrats to SU!

Wait, I thought the game sold 1 million copies in the first 24 hours. Did sales just crater after the first day or something?

That was never announced. Not sure which game you are thinking about, but this is the first sales update on Stellar Blade. Up until now, we just saw how it performed on the charts in various regions. I know in Japan it crossed 100k physical copies though, since those charts also show sales.

No it was Stellar Blade. But yeah it looks like it was mainly speculation that was spreading online. Terrible source though being Zuby tech of all online console warriors lol. I should've known it was BS when I saw his name come up https://www.sportskeeda.com/esports/stellar-blade-reportedly-hit-1-million-sold-units-24-hours

NextGen_Gamer G2ThaUNiT (3 days ago)

haha, Yeah don't trust him lol. I was hoping the game would be a higher point by now in sales, so hopefully word of mouth gets it going further. I also hope that everything the dev has done so far is appreciated: getting the New Game+ mode out on day 1, all of the outfits released so far for free, the Boss Rush mode being added for free, and a good stream of updates on bug fixing and balance tweaks. Those are things that might be taken for granted in an Insomniac Games or Santa Monica Games release, but those are massive AAA studios, and seeing Shift Up do it is awesome.

That was just what the Internet culture warriors championing Stellar Blade were claiming.
