Forums - Sales Discussion - Prediction: God of War PS4 will sell 10M+

im with it, 10m+ is doable.
I think last years contoversies with gams as service and loot boxes and micro transactions are gona make single player story driven games have a big push. As long as game lenth is decent, like I belive god of war is, desapointed audiences in destiny and battlefront and the like will start looking for new experiences. Not to mention the disapointed xbox fans since late 360 that are jumping ship. also sonys increase trust they have gained do to their single player games being big hits and getting plenty of buzz.

I don't think it will hit 10 million at all, there has been very weak advertising for it and hype levels aren't really amazing. We don't even know what kind of game this is, no gameplay or RPG mechanics shown at all, is it an RPG? or a hack and slash? there's barely anything we know about the game and not a lot has been shown.

Plus if RDR2 does indeed keep its planned release window of spring 2018 i.e. by the end of this fiscal year then GOW will at best have only a month to really have a go at boosting its numbers until RDR2 basically takes over all gaming media and buzz for probably all of 2018.

My prediction is 5 million.



No, I don't think so. Maybe 7-8m LT, 2-2.5m FM.

There have been several gameplay trailers, actually. And, the RDR2 bit really is meaningless without a solid release date.

Aside from hype, wich I dont think is easy to show, you just described the state of red dead, but worst is that it doesn't even have a release date.

6M at least, 7 to 8M are my expectations.
10M is Uncharted 4 levels of success, don't see it going there.

How are you gauging the bold?



Why are people bringing up Horizon sales? How are that games sales relevant to GoW4 sales?



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

While God of war was one of the big exclusives in PS2 and early PS3 era, it's not as big as uncharted is today. Gow 3 is about 8 years ago, that's a huge time gap.

Would say 6 million is possible, but it won't reach 10.



Oh, the crow serving is going to be wonderful - if for no other reason but to look back on the reasoning behind some of these lower predictions. Like I said, reminds me of the pre-release doubt of God of War III, GT5, and Uncharted 2. Some just don't visit the right history when calling these things, which usually proves to be a mistake.

I don't expect 10m either, but 5-6m being just "possible" will prove hysterical. :p
