Those are some very impressive numbers. And it'll no doubt continue to grow and have legs because Sony will definitely bundle this in the future.

Sidenote: This should be a great father's day gift to any gamer dad's out there that doesn't have this game yet :D

Not sure if it's a joke, but since the PS4 beat records sales and the best selling SKU (in value) for April NPD was the GoW Pro limited edition, pretty sure that they did better than 400M.

Yep I'm joking. Still Sony haven't released any press release about the revenue.

Kerotan said:

Nah he's joking because Microsoft pr have been using basically every metric bar actual paid for sales to judge some games over the past few years. At least that's what I take from dons post. 

Not only that, but also because some MS fan were saying UC, HZD and GoW weren't as successful as H5 because the SW didn't got 400M revenue as H5 had (while ignoring of course all the HW revenue)

That's what I thought! There was a good joke about the game's engagement earlier in the thread, this one was a bit less obvious. And on VGChartz, it's easy to doubt... 

The engagement one was quite good =]

Don't worry about it. There's no doubt God of war is bigger then halo now

It would match with 5M in April alone. The game was sold out in some places, so a high digital rate was expected. 

So, 5M in 10 days? Really impressive and well deserved.

It was in a month period (28 days).

read the guys above I quoted.
1) Its barely been 30days, and it takes time to collect sales data = this means 1month is more likely to mean just April sales.
2) SuperData says it did 2.1m+ sales digitally alone only, in april.  This fits with 5m number being for April (digital + physical).

 

Unless you have a quote by someone saying that it was 28days he ment?
Im gonna choose to believe it means April (10-11days) of sales = 5m.

He said in a "1 month period". That normally refers to 28 days. But you could be right, we don't have clarification. The 2.1 million digital is just for April, which does fit in line with 5 million total (2.9 million physical).

Man, I think my 15 million prediction will be right. My thread was hammered with pessimism, but I might be right in the end though :)

In fact, according to the poll in my thread, most people predicted a 5 million sales LIFETIME. GoW achieved in a month what many thought it would do in a lifetime :D

Yeah, you, me, and I think only one other person thought GoW could reach 15mil in sales. You had more gahoonas than me, though; I said 13-15mil.

100% this means the 1 "month" = april (10days) and not 30days of sales then.
That is nuts (but what I  thought it was, because sales data times time to collect, and its barely been a month)

 

Any chance we can change title of thread to "PS4: GOW Exceeded 5 Million Sales In One Month (April)"

Yeah, if SuperData is accurate and GoW sold 2.1m digitally in April alone, then the 5m figure is clearly for just April, a.k.a 11 days of sales.

Which is mindblowing.

3 days - 3.1m
11 days - 5m

Could be right.

I think the 5mil HAS to be for April only. 5mil in 30 days would actually be a bit concerning for GoW’s legs, yet we’ve seen the opposite for the countries we have numbers for (e. E.g. UK and Japan with super low 35% week one to two drops). If we do the math on even a 45% drop in sales from week 1 to 2, that would place GoW at 4.5mil after week 2 (10d after release).

Right? I think theres more logic to 1st month = april, instead of first 28days.

Its gonna do more than 10m this year alone, I suspect.
A HUGE growth for the series, Sony has to be well pleased with santa monica studios.

Can you prove with the amount of time played Multiplayer?

And It doesn't win over Halo 3.

On VGC when talking first month we really mean until the cut of the month (could be 1 day) and not 30 days.

I thought it would take at least all of summer to reach those numbers. Boy was I wrong

As expected of God of War, 10M+ seems like a given now imo!
