Hideo Kojima’s PlayStation 4 timed-exclusive Death Stranding entered the UK boxed games chart in second place, behind a dominant Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
Death Stranding sits behind Days Gone as the second biggest PlayStation-published game of 2019. Sony Bend’s not-zombie killer sold around a third more copies during its UK launch week.
Amongst other PlayStation-published games – and, certainly, Sony invested heavily in Death Stranding’s development – Kojima’s new opus ranks in sales similar to The Order 1866 and Bloodborne. Each shifted similar amounts to Death Stranding during their first weeks on sale – all within 3000 copies of each other.
