Sure, why not. Plenty of bundles can do that. It worked for Uncharted 4.

Yup. That.

But Horizon's probably at 6m+ already...

"A good example of that is the break down of sales for PS4’s Horizon Zero Dawn. As of April 30, more than 3.4 million copies of the game have been sold. Of those 915,000 were digital sales, according to PlayStation."

With VGC figures even if we assume it sold zero digital copies since the 915k figure was released it's at 5.2m as of December 2nd.

If that's true, then I would raise my GOW figures, because it will still sell more. 

That is true. Its an official statement from Sony.

You sure? VGC is telling me it sold 5.61m

Game Console Publisher Total Sales
God of War III
Read the review
Sony Computer Entertainment 4.81m
God of War III Remastered Sony Computer Entertainment 0.78m
God of War III Remastered Sony Computer Entertainment America 0.02m

And that would include double dipping on the remaster too, something that Uncharted 3 didn't have, so it's really not comparable. I can't see it selling 10m+ It wouldn't surprise me if it didn't even do 5m.


I included God of War Saga sales (which is God of War 1/2/3). 
But I didn't realize there was a second God of War 3 Remastered SKU on PS4 (that one with 0.02M). This would put it at 6.50M. 

God of War 3 sold around 6m on PS3 alone and has featured several times on PS Store's top sellers on PS4. Its likely above 7.5m now.

Interest in GoW as a HnS has waned

Eh, I don't think the release of Ascension was enough to prove that (provided that's what you're basing that idea on). Had God of War PS4 been God of War III, but for the new gen, I think it would still sell a good 4m or so (which is fine for a God of War title). 

In this case, adding a few features to spice things up will result in more sales, but God of War would have had HUGE buzz regardless.

I don't see where you're getting at here, a remake of GOW 3? If you're talking about a new game with GOW 3's scale that wasn't possible with the story.

GOW isn't Uncharted, it never gets massively bundled.

There's a first time for everything...

Don't see it happening. Uncharted has been getting bundled from the first one because it was always intended to be mainstream. God of War is an R rated franchise. If it becomes mainstream it still would be a niche audience with little room for expansion like Dark Souls so Sony wouldn't push it as much. They have another mainstream game coming instead with Spiderman.

Um, read what I said again.

God of War always was extremely mainstream with its macho hero, brutal but simple gameplay, and simple themes. They're changing things up quite a bit this time, so I would not be surprised to see massive bundling.

Ah okay, I think it would have been hammered for being 11 hour long with no multiplayer.

If it was a good 11 hours with lots to do and a robust story, probably not.

GoW3 hapenned a long long time ago. The last in the series actually was GoW ascention which sold way less and was also a very inferior game. Maybe the series lost a lot of fans over time and with the latets release. Uncharted 3 was release by the end of PS3 era.
I would shoot for 8 million retail + digital, but it could reach 10 million.
But dont think it will be uncharted level of success.

Ascension was poorly reviewed and was the worst game in the series, hence the poor sales.

TC, 10 mil  is way too high, I think it sees a nice boost like Uncharted did over the PS3 versions, but not better than GOW2 on PS2.

I predict 5-6mil tops.
