Unsure. 6 11.32%

Possible. I have a good feeling it’s going to push a lot of units in the US and EU.

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. 

Yes, it looks like one of those games that are the reason to own a system not just when then came, but for a good while.

I'm having a bit of a doubt of it having a stronger week than MHW on the account that Japan might not be all that crazy for the game, so the US and EU will have to pick up the extra numbers to reach the MHW sales.

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.

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.

It’s actually been number one on Japan’s Amazon charge for the past 4 to 5 days. So I think this GoW could actually sell a modest amount.

Hmmm, I think it's possible If there is a supply of 408,000 God of War PS4 Pro Bundles.

It depends on how well it sells in the US and Europe because what I've heard God of war has never sold super well in Japan.

I don't think so. Or at least not a significant boost.

Now if sony actually put out a $299 GOW PS4 slim bundle? Then that would have been a different matter. Instead we get a PS4 pro bundle at $399.

I expect to see PS4 slim bundles with the game for $229 around november december though.

Should always be the case

I haven't got a clue, maybe not. Monster Hunter may have attracted more new buyers, whereas a higher proportion of people interested in GoW might already own a system.
