Days Gone best physical launch of 2019

This week we get to review the sales numbers of last week and boy oh boy who would have guessed, the long time coming Playstation 4 exclusive title Days Gone did not only launch, but actually launched as the best physical title of the year so far, beating out Anthem, The Division 2 and Far Cry New Dawn even.

This is not really expected for a brand new intellectual property to start that strong, but I would assume that Days Gone has gathered a lot of interest over the past years with event presentations, public hands on times and so on. And the game does look amazing as we can see in this Twitter post by @itsDVP:

So far though the sales of Days Gone are still way under the other Playstation 4 titles God of War and Spider-Man, but given that one is a sequel/reboot and the other already an IP to which many people have already a connection to, it is less surprising. Still, beating out the other titles like The Division 2 and Far Cry New Dawn is an impressive feat on its own.
