If God of War is 20m or close to then almost certain Uncharted 4 and Spider-Man also are 20m+ sellers.

Pretty crazy to go from having a single 10m seller on previous console to possibly three 20m sellers on this one.

Last time we heard from Uncharted 4 was nearly 2 years ago (18-19 months ago).
By then it was at 16,2million.  No idea how well its sold, in that time, but..... its not unthinkable it could go over 20m either.

Spiderman was at 13,2m 14 months ago.  With spiderman getting a enhanced mode for PS5, I'm pretty sure that is going over 20m.

And should we count Spider-Man Miles Morales Ultimate Edition giving original SM Remaster, should be count it as a bundled sale?

2 for 1 (spiderman + miles morales), its still another copy of Spiderman sold (even if it comes bundled with Miles Morales).

Yeeeaaaah .... I don't know if I'd agree with this kind of logic since it would mean any game packaging another as kind of a "bonus" would automatically up the sales of the original.

Now the real problem for the ultimate edition would be to have actual numbers seperated from thw whole since it's there only only gonna disclosed the sales for Miles Morales and not this edition with the Spiderman remaster.

You can pay for MM only or buy the ultimate to get SM, so clearly the motivation to pay extra is to have the original, so in a way the sales should be accounted for. But yep it would create a lot of confusion.

Heck yes. GOW! Can't wait for Ragnarok boy.



Sony's 1st party are now above nearly every third party offering on Playstation and are nearing Nintendo levels. That's unprecedented, since Playstation also has the bulk of third party sales. We haven't seen a synergy like this since Nintendo in the NES/SNES days. 20M + : TLOU, UC, GOW, SM10M+ : Horizon, Ghost, GT, 5-10M : RC, DS, DG, Demons Souls

Don't do that, you are going to attract a lot of heat from "don't dare compare PS exclusives to Nintendo, Animal Crossing done 20M while GoT done 5M"

While I don't quite believe the numbers it is easily the best exclusive game that I have played, I absolutely hated the series before, but the feeling I felt playing it was just like how it was first time I played TLOU. I'm glad its the best selling in the franchise. I can't wait to see more of it.

Which numbers exactly you don't believe into?

The series growth (22/29/51) is all official data. The ~20M is a good estimate based on that and previous games already consolidated official sales.

It doesn't get much lower than that.

The fact that those other games were on previous gen and so much time have passed makes the last official numbers probably very close to current LTD. So yep almost all the sales in between were for GoW 2018, that is why it should be very near 20M (sure some can be attributed to promotional deals or bundles but how many games got so much from this without being games that people really wanted to buy?)
