Ghost of Tsushima Players Take Over 1.5 Million Photos Every Day

Pretty incredible statistics for a great photo mode.

Ghost of Tsushima is one good looking game. It's got an incredibly robust and detailed photo mode to work alongside its stunning visuals, and it appears players have really taken to said photo mode.

Over the weekend, PlayStation published new statistics for Ghost of Tsushima over the course of its first 10 days since it launched in mid July. Revealed within the stats is the fact that a grand total of 15.5 million photos were taken using Tsushima's photo mode over the 10 days. That's upwards of 1.5 million photos a day or, as games industry analyst Daniel Ahmad pointed out on Twitter, 17 photos taken every second.

Ahmad also points out how effective a marketing tool this is for PlayStation, and I can't help but agree. Given Tsushima's gorgeous visuals, with eye-popping colors that really stand out regardless of whether you've got a HDR-ready TV or not, players showing off the game themselves on social media is a superb way of generating talk about the game without Sony having to spend a single dollar.

It's not just the players that are praising Sucker Punch's Ghost of Tsushima. Ryu Ga Gotoku studio head Toshihiro Nagoshi, famed for the Yakuza games, has heaped praise on the game, while also questioning why no one in Japan made the game sooner. If Nagoshi wants to see more samurai games, he could always make another Ryu Ga Gotoku Ishin (and localize the original for a western release, please).

Ghost of Tsushima was updated late last week with a brand new patch. Update 1.05 introduces both harder and easier difficulty settings, as well as adding increased subtitle sizes for more accessibility.
