Sales Rumor: Killzone: Shadow Fall Surpasses 1 Million
Until the numbers are reported directly from a legitimate source, we'll call this a rumor.
But according to Insiderp, the PlayStation 4 launch title, Killzone: Shadow Fall, has sold over 1 million copies worldwide.
Supposedly, the number is from the NPD, GfK and other independent trackers in Asia and Western Europe. It also seems that around 27% of those sales can be attributed to PS4 bundle packages featuring Guerrilla's title. Additionally, the Xbox One launch title, Dead Rising 3, may have topped 600,000 copies worldwide. For the record, despite lower-than-expected review scores, Shadow Fall is undoubtedly the most popular PS4 launch game, so 1 million isn't out of the realm of possibility.
At last check, the PS4 had sold around 2.1 million consoles, so does this mean that nearly half the people who bought a PS4 also got the new Killzone? Well, maybe. If accurate, the 1 million mark was hit on December 20; there's no knowing how many PS4s had been sold as of that date.
