RolStoppable outed you as a junkie. I think for crank use.

I will go for 7M in about 18 months If its bundled, then 10M+ easy.

10 million is gonna be hard because times have changed so much since the glory days of God of War and the hack 'n slash genre in the mid 2000s.

Today the gaming market is increasingly about "games as a service", where the target is to force the player to invest disproportionately into just one single game, but God of War just tries to be extremely good quality.

The focus on good story is almost on a level of a quality movie or book, we see a more humane and very likable Kratos and even the boy is very likable. The combat mechanics look genuinely fun. And the graphics are absolutely incredible. And the game is very long for this type of game, like 30 hours to complete I think.

So God of War surely will sell at its maximum possible potential for the type of game it is. Like the OP brought up, the Uncharted games are a good comparison to start with. I think 8 million is within reach.

3M max. The game looks boring, too much focus on story. I could be wrong , but that’s the impression I got from the trailers

It'll do 60-70% of that within the first month.

I'm not sure if enough hype is surrounding the game for it to hit the mark. I haven't been following it that closely, but I think if it were likely to sell 10m, it would have more people talking about it.

At the same time, this isn't in any way an objective observation. It's just how I'm feeling. The series has been kind of stagnated IMO so I think it'll do 5m at most.

(Just going to add here that I haven't been following gaming as much recently so I could be totally off about how much people are looking forward to this)

My prediction : 8 million.

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

Yeah, and look at Wii Sports! :P

As for the prediction, I think 10m is the upper end of what it could sell, I'd say somewhere around 6-8m seems more reasonable, anything higher would honestly surprise me.

I think it'll be in Sony's best interest if they do an aggressive advertising campaign. They've had a lot of exclusives but i've hardly seen anything on TV, or even ad posters in subway stations.

It certainly deserves to break the 10 million mark and I really hope it will make it. Although I fear it will end up only doing 6 million units. If this game alongside Horizon, Spiderman and Uncharted do break at least the 8 million mark LT shipped, bundled and digital, that will be a great incentive to keep AAA SP games alive and well.

Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar
