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

Wow so clueless. This iteration of GoW will be the longest by far. Will have the most exploration. The most tactical combat with enemy moveset that is already more advanced than anything in the older ones. Lastly it will have the best story of them all, and thank god for that, because this incredibly interesting universe deserves it. GoW haters are fucking unbearable. First they shit on the series throughout its existence and then they feel like the series should cater to them.

So a "hater" is clueless for criticizing what they have seen, but you're totally not clueless for believing in things that you haven't seen?

Welp.

What is walky-talky feels?  What the hell are you guys trying to force into reality that isn't real?

I'm dead serious, I want to know what a walky-talky feels narrative is since I actually played the GOW serious before and actually know what it is about.  I know that if anything GOW 3 is the inspiration for TLoU but you keep pumping that bullshit like you actually know what you are talking about. 

What was God of War III about?  What was the narrative?  I not gonna let you get away with making crap up.   What was God of War 3's narrative?  Was it not about a man who lost his family and become a father figure to a girl who reminds him of his daughter while he escorts her to Mount Olympus?  Hmm, sound familiar?  Back off.   Games didn't begin with TLoU.   God of War has ALWAYS been about Kratos' family.  It is kinda the point of the whole series.

Anyone who thinks that GOW copied off of TLOU is so backwards insane, blatantly lying or on some group thought bandwagon that its to the point of insulting. 

But now, since TLoU is so popular, games can't be about what they were always about.   You called me blind.  Is any game with a story TLoU or is it games with stories that feature an older and younger character and are produced by Sony regardless of the actual setting, story, relationship, history of the game, actual gameplay, or common sense all TLoU?  Yes they are because you can see for real.   I would have given you Days Gone because there are actual similarities but not this god killing hack and slash title.   Nope.  Not gonna pretend to be that stupid.

Just because GoW has a story, doesn't make it TLoU.  That's not what I'm talking about and I have no idea what you're on about with "GoW is inspiration" for anything bollocks.

This game looks and sounds nothing like a GoW game.  Every trailer has this guy named Kratos "being a dad", as if he wasn't a horrible, genocidal, mankind apocalypse bringer.  This guy has a generic axe and does a special move where he... sorta tosses it?  Right, and he can't jump either.  And just for good measure of keeping character continuity, they went ahead and changed his voice too.  Why?  Because this is God of Feels, son.

The main point I'm trying to point at is how much walking around the player does in the trailers.  Walking around, stopping to watch a cutscene of a cliff falling and Kratos just... jumping it.  Instead of letting the player do it, he just sorta does it in the cutscene.  Walking around + babysitting little kid + watching cutscenes of your character do things instead of playing a video game = 10/10 amirite?

Before I go plagiarizing, most of what I'm saying is summarized in a video I completely agree with.  If you take a moment to watch it, you might see what I'm getting at.

He was always a dad......just to be clear. And a husband.....whose family was taken from him by the Gods and the ashes covered his body. I mean that is the reason he went on that rampage to begin with is it not? All because of how much his family meant to him. And yep we saw an axe(which there is nothing wrong with) even though every GOW game has had multiple weapons so not sure why bring that up like it is an issue. And was it confirmed that he can not jump is this game? I am asking because that part I do not know. And there could be a million reasons why his voice was changed.....that just seems as if you are nitpicking just to nitpick lol. And that video you posted is really interesting....I don't agree with it all and that is fine we are free to agree/disagree.

I even understand the TLOU stuff even though it is silly. It looks more story driven.....even though the story has always been a big part of the series so not sure why that is all of a sudden an issue. No zombies but freaking Gods and mythical creatures, flying axes, God like powers and I am almost 100% sure more weapons and magic. I mean outside of being 3rd person, having an adult  and a child traveling and maybe a few set pieces(which we saw in GOW before this one) there is nothing similar between it and TLOU I mean with that argument every game that is 3rd person with a adult and child traveling is TLOUish. Even though you had stealth options. This game looks far more action packed. Even with the LITTLE that they have shown in trailers. I think the change was much needed after what 5 or 6 games including the PSP games.

Question....did you play TLOU and if so did you like it or dislike it?



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

PSN: StlUzumaki23

It would be weird if monster Hunter world shipped more than God of war week 1.

It got a huge push from Sony in Asia. You'd like to think Sony will do likewise for god of war but in Europe and the USA instead.

If the game turns out to be epic it's week 1 sales should be huge.

Monster Hunter, god of war, spiderman, rdr2. 4 massive big titles likely to release on ps4 before the holidays.



Well, it's about to happen with Uncharted, so the same thing can happen with this game. That possibility is always there. A lot of marketing would help boost sales I feel. I recall when U4 released, commercials for it would show up on TV fairly often.

Personal opinion here, but that was a very stupid video. again in my opinion. 

The guy basically complained that he doesn't want anything new, just the same story and more simply button smashing and dont touch his camara. Imagine if this was said about resident evil 4, wich so far according to everyone was the peak of resident evil.

Second thing is that all these trailers are story focused because its what the biggest improvement is according to the devs. Reason for that is cuz that is what makes the trailer look better and attracts people. As far as we know is the same mindless hack and slash but with a third person view with some as you call it, walky talky moments.

I suggest that before people start slamming a game, wait for more info on it to be available, cuz again, they just showed the story trailers. You can be sure that more gameplay videos will show up and most likely new weapons and or magic. 

I will say that I am a little bias and this is the kind of things I like. I despise mindless grindfest and online multiplayer. Im the kind of guy who only has time to play through a game once. So If they want to make every moment impactful cuz there is less total time then that's excellent by me. Im always willing to try new things, as far as you know, it could be better then what you know.

Agree with you there. Case and point: resident evil. For was a big change that paid off. 5 more of the same. 6 whent to much into call of duty territory and there was big backlash. then 7 brought them back to form.

The key is making changes but keeping faithful to the source material. This change feels good cuz its easily perceived as kratos natural progression, from vengeful  anger, to calm and regretful. Its like people cant imagine that characters are able to change and progress, it happens to us and devs are inmersing us in the experience by showing their characters progress. 

So yea, Im looking forward to this game.
