Forums - Sony Discussion - God of War is the "fastest selling" Exclusive in PS History According to NPD

The sequel should be cross gen. Its what they could have done for God of War 2, and should do for 5 as that would make its initial sales huge and make its legs big as next gen consoles catch up in userbase and that way it will also take advantage of next gen hardware.

I'm 99% sure PS5 will be backwards compatible with PS4. BC will be a very important feature next gen to keep players within the ecosystem. Most of us these days have a digital library that we can't sell off or give to a kid in the family like we used to in the past and I'm sure Sony and MS know this. With PS4 having such a huge pie of the marketshare Sony would have to be mentally challenged to not capitalize on it by letting PS4 players carry over their library into next gen. MS has already made it clear that they will keep BC from here on out. In light of that I think this whole cross-gen business makes no sense. God of War sequel will likely release a year after Horizon Zero Dawn sequel (which I expect to be a launch title) and at that point I think Sony will be looking to drive PS5 sales and not PS4.

Do like GoW3 and TLOU seems to bring even more sales... wait 6-12 months and release the improved version.

Waiting for the next.
Absolute masterpiece.



bigger than "The Last of Us" is really impressive.

Hopefully "The Last of Us 2", "Spiderman", "Death Stranding" and "Ghost of Tsushima" will be such a big success too :)



"The Last of Us 2" is officially Game of the Year 2020, worldwide. Ghost of Tsushima-Artwork:

That’s extremely cool. Wonder how far it will go. Anybody know what the highest selling PS exclusive ever is in the US? WW, I’m starting to think this game will top GT4 as the best selling PS title ever.

What did GT4 sell again? 15-something right?

GT3 sold more than 4, about 15M.

good question, but i dont know. The big "God of War"-success is a good sign for the games-industry in my opinion. It is worth again to develop AAA-games with a great story, interesting characters and amazing gameplay. Quality deserves it - all things are important for me and other players (Soundtracks, Atmosphere, Gameplay, Story, Characters, Bossfights, Details, Graphic ect) :)

PS: How big is Spiderman in the USA ? overall ? Is it possible for the new game to set a new record in the US?

Spider Man is huge in the US. In fact, I think for comic book sales, he’s the most popular single super hero character. With the huge backing by both Marvel and Sony, and the fact the upcoming game is a unique new way to experience the character, I think there’s a huge chance this game will be major seller, potentially even topping GoW’s sales benchmark.

I'm almost 100% sure that tittle belongs to The Last of Us with over 17 million Units Sold.  Oh, and yeah, that's another Single player game btw!!    ;)
