Thats across eight games if you count the mobile version. I'm proud to say that I contributed to 5/8.

21 million is an astounding number, but when you do look at it like, that's out of 8 games...My own reaction is more along the lines of "The hell is wrong with people, that number should be triple that for such an amazing series!" Ughhh, I just don't understand.

Also, proud to say I have contributed to 5 of those games, with Ascension being my 6th in the future. I also counted, I only see 7 games in the series, am I missing one? I see 1, 2, 3. The 2 PSP games which brings it to 5, and then Betrayal (mobile game), and Ascension. Is there an 8th i'm not aware of?

Some people just can't stand hack and slash games.
nolifeking  +   778d ago
considering the genre, I would say that's quite the feat.

@xPhearR3dx

Agreed, not everyone likes hack and slash. These days most people just are into shooters.

Personally i cant get enough of a competitive RTS ARPG like Dota. Hence yea everyone has different choices.

To me 1 hack and slash a year is pretty much fine, but sure some folks here probably want alot more.

I added the collections, but didn't include Ascension since it's not part of the 21 million.

This franchise is always near & dear to Sony!!
and its core Fans. Still remember the awe-inspiring God of War that launched in 2005!! Since then it became the Trademark of Sony along with GT... but Alas! Drake stole the charm from Kratos since Uncharted 2!

But nvm, Sony has 2 mothaf**ing titles (Kratos/Drake) that even a M$/Nintendo fanboys do admit.. that both of them wre Gem.

And yeah.. Im proud to contribute all 8/8. Infact I have the PSP versions as well as the PS3 version of the psp versions. Im f**king God of War!

it all started on ps2 when i asked about a game called god of war...this skater/punk employee told me

and it was.

i have GOW 1,2,3 and origins collection been a long time fan and planning on getting this day one. Was it me or did the demo felt too long and there was nothing special about the demo?

i don't know how to explain but something was missing, it felt like been there done that. With this GOW they have a chance to take some risks combat wise because combat has been the same for way too long

but i am very interested to play the single player since this game tells a story to fill the gap between main games. Co-op looks quite good i am more of a co-op than online MP

will pre order asap 2013 will be huge

last of us
last guardian(yes it will come in 2013)_
beyond

and many unannounced

Did you get your screen name by how many units you've had in you?
Afterlife  +   778d ago
Shipped = Sold.

If you do some research, you will know what I mean. I'm not even going to bother to explain it to you.

When I got GoW 2, I did not knew anything about it since it was one of my first PS2 games, little did I know..
nevin1  +   778d ago
Well GOW 3 had to compete with Red Dead Redemption and Heavy Rain.
aDDicteD  +   778d ago
I'm happy for the GOW franchise, i played all of those titles 1,2 and 3 was awesome and the other 2 in psp was also good for a handheld game, well all I can say is that the best is yet to come (GOW: ascension) ^_^

If people would stop considering FPS the only game genre they would actually enjoy awesome games such as the God of War series and all the other games that Playstation has to offer.
