Destiny is the fastest-selling and most-played PlayStation 4 game ever in North America during the game's first week of release, Sony revealed today.
Sony also said that the Destiny launch drove the most PlayStation 4 hardware units in a week in North America since Christmas 2013. There was a brand new PlayStation 4 bundleintroduced for the release of Bungie's shared-world shooter, which packaged a white console with the game.
In addition, there were over 11 million game sessions of Destiny on PlayStation 4. Sony also unveiled that the first-person shooter was the most-shared and most-broadcasted PlayStation 4 game during its first week in North America.
The records don't stop there for Destiny, however. Activision announced earlier today that Destiny is the best-selling new game franchise of all time, raking in more than $325 million USD during the shooter's first five days of release. The Bungie title also got off to a big start in the UK as well.
