Destiny Becomes Fastest Selling Game in PS4 History; Hardware Sales at All-Time High
Bungie’s Destiny action-shooter is now the fastest selling game in the history of the PlayStation 4, Sony has announced. In addition to that, the game was also the most shared and most broadcasted PS4 game during its first week on sale.
At a time when the PS4 was already dominating in sales, Destiny has managed to push those numbers even further, increasing sales of PS4 hardware to their highest yet since Christmas.
“Since Destiny launched one week ago, it has officially become the biggest PS4 game launch in North America ever,” wrote Sony’s Adam Boyes on the PlayStation Blog. “The game broke records for being the fastest purchased and most played PS4 game during its first week on sale. In fact, last week was our single biggest PS4 hardware sales week since Christmas 2013! That’s a lot of PS4s. Thanks, Guardians!”
Despite its mixed reviews, Destiny has managed to become the fastest selling new IP in history. Publisher Activision also enjoyed its launch, revealing that it was the largest digital release in the company’s history. That’s a lot coming from the Call of Duty franchise owner.
The Dark Below and House of Wolves are two expansion packs being worked on for Destiny right now. The former is supposed to release later this year, with the latter releasing sometime next. Both will bring new story-based missions, competitive Crucible maps, new weapons, armors, and other gear to unlock. Both expansions will be timed-exclusive on the PlayStation platform.
