God of War 44 47.83%
Spider-Man 34 36.96%

Simple question, what will get more sales?

I think Spiderman takes it.... but it ll be close.
Pretty sure both go well above 5m sales too.

The year spiderman was announced I remember saying spiderman had the potential to sell 10m and a few guys here were laughing and said no. I don't know which will sell more but both could sell 10m

Tough question actually. I think Spiderman has more potential to sell well, could sell crazy well even. But GOW is the more established gaming franchise and is a safer bet to sell well. If I had to I'd say Spiderman will do better, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if GOW sells more instead.

Spider-Man is a bigger franchise overall than God of War and i think people are hungry for a good Spider-Man game. I think God of War will sell 7-8 million while Spider-Man can go as high as 11-12 million with 10 million being a definite

Around the Network

God of war with around 7-8m sales.

Spiderman will sell around 4-5m

Crazy we're talking double digit numbers for Sony first party titles, outside GT, its rare.

But for sales Spiderman > GOW

15 million for GoW, and the same if Spider-Man reviews over 90 on MC

Predicted 15+ million lifetime-sales for God of War:

It's tough for me because both look so good. I want Spider-Man to be a bigger game because I love Marvel and I love Insomniac.
Spider-Man has a bigger market but God of War is an established franchise for Sony.
