Horizon: Zero Dawn Passes 3.4M Copies Sold, PS4 Pro Sales Discussed

Killzone developer Guerrilla Games’ new action-adventure game Horizon: Zero Dawn has crossed a new sales milestone. PlayStation boss Shawn Layden said in a new interview that the game has passed 3.4 million copies sold, up from 2.6 million units sold in its first two weeks.

“We’ve been so proud of what that studio has been able to do,” Ryan told Glixel. “It’s a brave step for that studio to go from making shooters like Killzone to an open-world game.”

Given the big success of Zero Dawn, it’s no surprise that the developer is supporting the game with a new story expansion. It’s possible Sony will discuss or show this off at E3, though that is not confirmed at this stage.

Additionally, Sony confirmed that nearly 3.4 million copies sold, 915,000 were digital.

“This kind of shift changes everything. It changes the publishing model, it allows smaller players to put out games, it affects DLC and it has a huge impact,” PlayStation boss Shawn Layden said.

Also in the interview, Sony discussed PS4 Pro sales. While a unit figure was not disclosed, Sony said around 40 percent of PS4 Pro sales are from people upgrading from the standard PS4.

“People just want the best,” PlayStation Europe boss Jim Ryan said. “Maybe they just want to future proof? I think we see the same thing from Apple customers too–there are people that want the best that you can buy.”

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
