You would think, but then again the install base is so big now it's hard to say how much of a boost any particular software will give. I'm one person who just got a PS4 primarily because of GoW though. But I got it on ebay, so I won't be representing any new sales.

I think it's safe to say MHW gave a significant boost over three weeks.

Nah, i think most people that want GOW already have a PS4, modest boost to hw, i think less than 100k boost ww.

It’s crazy how much people want to buy a PS4 this week. I read it everywhere.

Mainly because of Japan though. It's effect lasted approx. a month there. It did have some effect here but not as much like Japan.

It's not exactly a great gauge to judge how many people would actually do it though.

And that's not even counting people who are just switching from the base model/slim to Pro.

Though, expecting a substantial increase is definitely in the realm of possibilities.

I think huge hw boosts because of software for ps4 from now on will be reliant on big japanese hits where base sales are low

Gow will give a hardware boost for sure, but on regions where it already sells like a winning console that's already sold a lot



The boost will be longer rather than bigger

Surely the Japanese can't pass on GOW. Also, I think it has way more to do with Japans economy bouncing back from the 2011 Tsunami and people rebuying into luxury items like consoles, it'll continue to grow there regardless of software.

Depends on how many people interested in the game haven't yet bought the PS4.

They have passed on every GOW to this point, i dont see that changing.

PS4 sales in Japan have next to nothing to do with the economy.

Just like the last of us. A lot of people over a 2 year period would have bought a ps3 or ps4 to play tlou. Same will happen here. 



+Xbox owners buying a PS4.
+Original vanilla PS4 owners upgrading to the PRO model.
+Friends/Family recommending PS4
+Press and the amazing popularity of PS4

God of War has got a hot streak going right now for the PS4. The sales are booming, with people eagerly anticipating on playing this game. It will do over 400k I predict.
