The thing is, we're talking about two different kinds of violence. The reason GTA does so well is that it offers you freedom to do whatever you want in a semi-realistic sandbox. With that freedom, you can choose to be violent or not be, depending on your personality. It's all comical and laughable violence that you don't get nightmares from.

 

God of war, however, from the title alone, speaks volumes about the kind of violence you see in it. Kratos does such otherwordly sick stuff that it's hard for other people to stomach it. And you have no choice but to go on killing in creative ways even if you're not that type of person. Also, there is no lighthearted violence here. Kratos just screams while ripping heads off. This series is all serious drama with a subject a lot of people don't care about (mythology).

It seems very clear that you haven’t played the new GoW. This is nothing compared to the old games. I could never like them due to the excessive violence. Conversely, the new GoW is likely my favorite game of the entire gen. 

But it carries the name. People know the name. The series has a reputation that we're not about to forget any time soon. That reputation will make people not care about it and avoid it.

 

And i am currently playing it, and it's still violent as ever. It's just more "artsy" now.

The fact that Sony hasn’t said anything about it’s FW sales are worrying.
But still:
FW: NA=800k (45%Digital), EU=600k (35%Digital), ROTW=300k (25%), Japan= 50k (15%Digital), WW= 1,75m
LT: NA=4m (50%Digital), EU=4m (40%Digital), ROTW=1,5m (30%Digital), Japan= 200k (25%Digital), WW= 9,7m
Those numbers are in case that it is NOT bundled like Uncharted 4.

They gave Horizon two weeks before saying anything. I'm sure it is doing fine. Also, I agree that having sub 4 & 5m options is in the poll silly. God of War III did over 5m 6 years ago and this one will easily clear that in far less time.

They also gave Uncharted 4 two weeks before announcing FW sales. Tomorrow it will be exactly two weeks since GOW came out so we shall see in the next couple of days.

As you can see, some people voted for 4-5m.

Doesn’t make it any less silly.

The series has a reputation of being great games. I don't know why you think it has a "too violent reputation" issue. Most people who don't like violence most likely don't know the series at all anyway. And violence is pretty much in every western AAA nowadays. The executions in TLOU are very close to the ones in GoW (but on humans, even worse IMO), and nobody put a "way too violent" sticker on it.

 

And I'm not sure that "most people don't care about mythology". Tell them that it's about Odin, Thor, magical weapons forged by dwarves and the Bifrost, and you have already a huge Marvel crowd ready to learn more. Lots of people like mythology, and the Scandinavian one has a reputation as good as the Greek one.

Now you see why the sub 4 & 5m options are silly.



                                                                                                                                            

Wow, I was so wrong.

What the actual fuck, I was NOT expecting that, and I didn't make a prediction!

If I WERE going to make a prediction, it would've been somewhere around the 2m mark or something, I knew it was going to do well, but this has by far exceeded anything I was expecting!

Based on THREE DAYS sales, I can see this managing 10m+ lifetime!
