Nearly two weeks after the game hit store shelves, Sony has released some interesting and bizarre statistics surrounding the latest PlayStation exclusive, Ghost of Tsushima.

On July 17, 2020, Sony Interactive Entertainment and developer Sucker Punch released their brand-new title, Ghost of Tsushima. The game garnered critical acclaim and is one of the most talked-about games within the industry right now.

On top of that, the game sold 2.4 million copies within the first three days, making it the highest-selling PlayStation 4 game based on an original IP. Because of this, a ton of people have interacted with the game in a variety of ways. That’s where PlayStation steps in.

Earlier today, PlayStation released a slew of statistics from the game on its Twitter page, based on what players had done and accomplished within the first 10 days of release. While a lot of the statistics make sense, some of them are absolutely jaw-dropping, even with the impressive sales.

  • 8.8 million foxes petted
  • 14.2 million haikus written
  • 15.5 million photos taken
  • 16.2 million onsen visited
  • 17.1 million bamboo strikes
  • 28.1 million flute songs played
  • 37.5 million inari shrines honored
  • 57.5 million duels completed
  • 139.4 million enemies collapsed in fear
  • 156.4 million standoffs
  • 810.3 years on horseback

Easily the most impressive statistic in that list is the final bullet point about players’ time spent on horseback. Even though this is the primary mode of transportation in the game, 810 years is still an insane amount of time, no matter how you slice it.

Overall, it’s good to see a large number of people enjoying their time with Ghost of Tsushima. While games based on established IP are bound to sell marginally well, new IP can sometimes be a shot in the dark.

While it probably won’t happen, it would be interesting to see more statistics from the game as time goes on. Hopefully, people will continue playing the game far past its release date.

It’s no secret that TikTok star Charli D’Amelio has a dedicated fanbase, but some supporters began accusing another TikToker of copying her hairstyle — and the Queen was not happy about these allegations.

Charli D’Amelio is the most-followed content creator on TikTok, having reached a whopping 90 million followers since rising to the top of the platform in March.

Boasting her own drink at Dunkin’ Donuts, her own makeup collection with Morphe and her own line of Hollister hoodies, the youngest D’Amelio sister has amassed quite the empire in a short time — as well as a seriously intense fanbase.

While hopping on popular trends is quite the norm these days, some viewers have accused innocent TikTokers of copying Charli, even alleging that older sister Dixie had “copied” her nose surgery.

A post shared by MADI MONROE (@madimonroe) on

This behavior hasn’t stopped, it seems, as other fans claimed that TikToker Madi Monroe had copied Charli’s hairstyle after dying her blonde hair with streaks of rose gold (or pink, depending on how you look at it).

Charli dyed her own black hair a shade of purple underneath, and while it could be true that other influencers have taken inspiration from her new ‘do, the TikTok Queen wasn’t too pleased with those piling on Monroe for her fashion choices.

In fact, Charli claimed that other names like Avani Gregg and Hayley had kickstarted the trend by dying their hair before she’d even made the decision to go purple, as told in a pointed response to the online outrage.

Charli D'Amelio decries users accusing Madi Monroe of copying her hairstyle.

“Hayley and Avani dyed their hair like this before me,” she explained in a TikTok comment. “I did not start this trend. Also, who cares? Madi looks amazing as per usual and she is rocking the pink hair.”

Madi followed up Charli’s comment with a statement of her own, showing tons of love to the purple-haired TikTok guru.

“Why is this even tea?” she said of the issue. “Hell yeah, Char rocks this hairstyle. That comment wasn’t supposed to be rude but NGL I’D LOVE TO LOOK EXACTLY LIKE CHARLI SHE’S THE BADDEST!”

It looks like there’s no bad blood between these two influencers, who have had enough of the made-up drama surrounding their hairstyle choices.
