Bingo, 4 days vs 1. Also, with Amazon having horrendous stock issues I imagine the digital sales are very high too.

God of War on PS4 is the fastest selling title in the franchise' history.

It has sold over 35% more units in its first week than the previous best, 2010's God of War III.

And it has already overtaken the previous major Sony exclusive this year - Shadow of the Colossus.

It isn't the only success this week. The new Yakuza title - Yakuza 6: Song of Life - arrived on PS4 and debuts at No.3. It is the biggest launch for a Yakuza game yet. It beat the previous best - 2017's Yakuza Kiwami - by 300 units.

Awesome news for every gamer, single player fan and developer - so much quality is rewarded :) Both games deserve it!



Let's not start with the Tuesday Vs Friday thing again.



According to Era it should be around 80-100k

Well, did the other GOW release on a friday too?



I hope people saying GoW has less days as an excuse realize the vast majority of sales come on the first day.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

Horizon released Wednesday actually. Not as if it would make much difference. The vast majority of first week sales would come on day 1, especially for an established franchise like GOW, so a couple of days more or less is largely irrelevant.

Hmmm geeee it's almost like it's not an excuse if they're literally comparing the game to games that factually DID release on a tuesday
