I don't think it will sell better then Horizon and I don't think Horizon sold 10 milion, so I think you are a bit off. But I am sure it will do big numbers.

It will definitely sell better than Horizon, but not 10 million. 6-7m is my guess, which is still big for God of War.

But Horizon's probably at 6m+ already...

"A good example of that is the break down of sales for PS4’s Horizon Zero Dawn. As of April 30, more than 3.4 million copies of the game have been sold. Of those 915,000 were digital sales, according to PlayStation."

With VGC figures even if we assume it sold zero digital copies since the 915k figure was released it's at 5.2m as of December 2nd.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

According to VGChartz God of War 3 has sold 6.48M (all versions combined + only retail).

You sure? VGC is telling me it sold 5.61m

Game Console Publisher Total Sales
God of War III

Sony Computer Entertainment 4.81m
God of War III Remastered Sony Computer Entertainment 0.78m
God of War III Remastered Sony Computer Entertainment America 0.02m

And that would include double dipping on the remaster too, something that Uncharted 3 didn't have, so it's really not comparable. I can't see it selling 10m+ It wouldn't surprise me if it didn't even do 5m.

VGC figures are wrong. I'm not sure how many times its been posted by various people in threads like these but GOW 3 sold 5.2m on PS3 by May 31, 2012. The PS3 version would easily be above 6 million now. Lol at those two different listings of GOW 3 Remastered.

I hope it for the game. Games with high development costs, a lot of hard work and attention to detail deserve it! Its my first God of War in april then, look forward to it :) its pre ordered now.

You say that but in the next sentence say that you never played a GOW game. LMAO!

I know horizon passed 4 milion retail and did well digital so I assumed it crossed the 6-7m mark but I might be wrong

But I agree God of war wil do around 6m

Surely horizon will sell 6 or 7m. The games not even a year old. 

 

Bold prediction. Like uncharted 4, gow will benefit from xbox converts. These are players who last gen played on 360 but this gen switched to ps4 giving the series increased sales potential.

Sure, why not. Plenty of bundles can do that. It worked for Uncharted 4.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

If VGC figures are "wrong" then why did you still cite them as your source, and lie about what that source says?



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

I'll say ~7M LTD.

A range would be 6M-8M.

God of War 3 on PS3 sold 5.2m by May 31, 2012. That was just two holidays after the game released. In its first year it sold about 3 million so clearly it has legs. By that count even with slower sales later it should easily be over 6m on PS3. The PS4 remaster sold 0.78m according to VGC who has a history of vastly lower sales for God of War than actual figures. Also the remaster featured many times on PS Store's top sellers. With all that the PS4 version is easily at 1.5m so GOW3 at minimum should be at 7.5m+ despite having less fanfare than the new one. If the new God of War game is well recieved like God of War 3 it should sell way better. Remember God of War 3 released on a userbase of 29 million.



I don't think so.
