It appears to be like like Supermassive Games may need one thing of a VR hit on its arms with The Inpatient.
GFK, the sport sales-tracking group within the UK, simply revealed its weekly record of the 40 best-selling retail titles over the past seven days. Surprisingly, The Inpatient simply squeezed in on the #10 spot. We don’t know the precise gross sales figures, however we’re fairly certain that is the primary new PSVR unique recreation since launch to make it into the highest ten; even the hugely-popular Skyrim VR solely made it to #19 on its launch week, although minigame compliation PlayStation VR Worlds has typically charted extremely.
What makes it all of the extra spectacular is that final week was an enormous one for traditional videogame releases; Capcom’s Monster Hunter World and Bandai Namco’s Dragon Ball Fighter Z each launched prior to now week. Pair that with the very fact PSVR’s international set up base is considerably decrease than the opposite consoles video games on the record debut on and The Inpatient deserves a pat on the again.
The recreation is a prequel to Supermassive’s widespread horror recreation, Until Dawn, which could assist clarify a few of its gross sales. It additionally helps that it’s priced loads decrease than different large titles, costing £25 (whereas Monster Hunter, for instance, would set you again no less than £40).
We fairly favored The Inpatient, although it’s hampered considerably by poor controls. “As a prequel to Until Dawn, it does an excellent job of fleshing out the lore a bit extra, however it’s a bit quick to essentially stand by itself,” our personal David Jagneaux stated in his evaluate. “That being stated, the moments which are there and the scares that they produce are completely price experiencing.”
