I just thought of a major factor in GoW’s favor. GoW has traditionally done much better, sales-wise, in the US. GoW 3 still sold great, despite the ps3 selling fairly poorly in the US. But for the new God of War, ps4 has a very healthy install base in the US.

It would be interesting to compare the US sales numbers for ps3 when GoW 3 released vs. ps4 now when GoW is releasing.

This GoW is more targeted at Europeans than previous installments. So I would expect a 6:4 salesratio in favor of the US. But this game should be able to sell 2 million during the launch week. With 900k coming from the US. This is going to be the best selling GoW game to date however.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

Around the Network

Not very bold imo. Sony is pushing this game even harder than Uncharted 4 and that sold 2.7 million in a week. Hell even Horizon sold 2.6 million units in two weeks.
I’d bet on a 3+ million opening week for God of War, and 10 million by the end of 2018.

Yeah it will sell a lot, i think 9M LT is a safe bet, but it's actually a direct sequel to the greek trilogy not a reboot, they just changed the gameplay

How? He destroyed the world and his entire family line, please explain how his son is still alive and the world still standing.

Kratos destroyed the Greek realm but the Norse realm is still alive. He didn't have a son back then so he must have met someone in the Norse area.

To me it's going to be just as big as GoW 3 phenomenon on PS3. That game still amazes me to date.

The remaster on PS4 in sweet 60fps doesn't actually look significantly worse than other PS4 games. GoW 3 and The last of us where really graphical masterpieces. Especially the opening battle and the Kronos fight are among my most memorable video game moments. Also this game is 25 to 35 hours long so it's probably the biggest God of War game to date.

Yes GOW 3 on PS4 looks better than many games especially because of that smooth 60fps while graphics and scale still holds up. I wouldn't say its the best looking PS3 game though because Ascension had way better lighting and more detailed character models. Shame that the game wasn't even close to GOW 3 quality.

GOW 3 sold 1.1 million in March 2010 in the US. GOW should top it easily.

I meant compare the sales for ps3 as in the ps3 install base at the time GoW 3 released.

Uncharted 4 did 8.7m on its first 9 months, so GoW doing 5m on its first 3, and outside of holidays, is not something easy or guaranteed. But I'm pretty confident it will too.

No, Uncharted did 8.7m in ~7.5 months. It released May 10 and was at 8.7m at the end of 2016.

It also did 2.7 million week one.

Thats the crazy part... over 8.7m by end of 2016.
I wonder what its sales are like now in 2018.
