Probably Spider Man. I mean, PS4 already has God of War, and even for those that didn't re-buy GOW3 if they enjoyed the GOW games on PS3 you'd assume many of them would have upgraded to a PS4 already by now. While there isn't really any Spider Man on PS4 yet, and is also part of a huge franchise as well.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Seeing as it isn't a "movie based" spider-man but an actual one - Spiderman,

All the hype for the game.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

I think it will be a close win for GoW, unless there's a new Spiderman movie coming next year?

I'm personally most hyped for Spider-Man. I could see God of War doing better overall though.



God of war better reviews but spider man open world is more my thing and I believe it will sell more especially to the demographic who still not own a PS4 yet.






Spider-Man will probably sell more (could sell huge numbers), and God of War gets better Metascore (both will get good reviews). I am equally excited for both games.

I think God of War will edge out Spider-Man but it will be close.

So far the bestselling Spider-Man game sold 4.5m on PS2 and God of War III sold around 6.5m on PS3 (still under-tracked gave up that fight years ago). I think both upcoming games will sell better than those did and the gap will be closer.

PS4 players will be happy either way!



I think Spiderman will sell more mainly because Sony won't be the only company advertising the game. Both games should be close, though.
