How much will God of War sell lifetime?

<4 million 1 1.54%
 
4-5 million 1 1.54%
 
5-6 million 5 7.69%
 
6-7 million 4 6.15%
 
7-8 million 6 9.23%
 
8-9 million 7 10.77%
 
9-10 million 15 23.08%
 
>10 million 26 40.00%
 
Total:65

So now we can alter that poll a bit. Anything under 4m is totally unrealistic, and if I take it further, 5 & 6 are also in question now. I don't see anything under 8m for this game ltd, but I'm going to watch the next few weeks before drawing a conclusion.

God of War sold over 3.1 million units in its first three days, making it the fastest-selling PS4 exclusive ever

----------------

Amazing start!



If the week two worldwide follows the UK 35% drop you are looking at no less than 5 million already sold. I voted for 9 million and even that is in serious doubt for lifetime sales. Now we know why it keep selling out.

By "in question" do you mean unrealistic? With sales this strong there is absolutely no way it'll sell less than 6m, lol

I was trying to put it mildly.

The absence of evidence is NOT the evidence of absence...

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.

Equating this game to the other GoW games is really off base.

Violence against a Draugr/troll/Ogre, as in the new GoW, is COMPLETELY different from violence against humans. 99% of the violence in this GoW is non-human. I’m with you on the old games. I was turned off enough by the violence in GoW 2 and 3 that I stopped playing them and never finished. But are you seriously offended by violently killing an undead/demon creature? And even the human violence in the new GoW is greatly subdued. It’s no longer excessive and tasteless and, a big one: it is now done only in SELF-DEFENSE or by necessity (e.g. to protect Atreus). In the prior GoWs, Kratos killed for the sake of killing, and he sought it out. In this one, he actually tries to avoid fights with human enemies. I assure you, you will see nothing like the human kills in the other GoWs. I’ll never forget that Hercules kill. :/

I don’t want to spoil anything for you; you’ll just have to keep playing the game. And by the time you finish it, I think you will see how positively different the new GoW is compared to its predecessors. It’s an awesome experience and a hell of a redemption for the character of Kratos. 

Also, now that it’s officially confirmed this game has done godly numbers with 3.1 mill sold through in 3 days, it further drives the point that this game is not what you think it is.

Its strange because when you start to get a whole ton of reviews singing its praises and the only detractors are outliers and people claim to have played for a few hours,  you can assume its probably well received by the majority of people.  The caveat here is that you really do need to play to understand what makes it so good  Everyone gets the royal treatment here and spoiler alert: long time fans receive the highest rewards.  The best of of the half assed reviews was one of the one lamenting the combat system when if you actually play the game you will know it literally has some of the original combat style in it. 

Absolutely brilliant
