Grow Home PS4 PlayStation 4 Sales

It won the Vote to Play poll on the PlayStation 4, but there's more good news for Grow Home's botanical bot BUD, as the platformer has become Ubisoft's fastest ever download on PlayStation formats. The game exceeded 1.5 million "sales" within its first week – but this success can of course be attributed to the fact that it was given away for free to PlayStation Plus members.

"We are thrilled that BUD has found a new home in the PS4 community," chuffed producer Pete Young said in a statement. "Grow Home was a great opportunity for our team to experiment and develop new technology and have fun at the same time." Given the amount of PS4s in the wild, we reckon that the biggest story here is that most subscribers clearly don't redeem their goodies.

Either way, this is good news for the experimental adventure, as we really liked it in our review. "There are some niggling control issues," our scribe Kell Andersen explained, "but the stunning presentation and subtle soundtrack round things out, ultimately making for a satisfying and adorable game." We awarded it a well deserved 8/10.
