For the fourth consecutive week in a row, God of War is No.1 (despite a 30% dip in sales week-on-week).
- Surpassed The Last of Us Remastered as the Sony-published PS4 game with the most consecutive No.1s - Comfortably the second biggest new game released this year behind Far Cry 5
And far cry 5 was on multiple platforms....
im not trying to diminish god of war as i love it immensely and its sales figures are definitely impressive -epecially for being an exclusive, but fc5 has still sold more overall because it IS multiplatform (5 million copies in the first week alone vs 3.1 million for GOW). look it up... sony has lots of users but no matter how many it has, combining sales with xbox and pc is still more people no matter what. lets not make this a red herring meme.
@Kumakai God of War sold 3.1 million in 3 days. That's less than 1 week.
FC5 came first smart guy
@ Kumakai: as KilluaX3 said, the 3.1 million was for the first three days. I wouldn't be surprised if it did 5 million in its first week, or at least close to it.
Christ, I'd completely forgotten I bought FC5!! Haven't touched it since GOW came out 😂😂
@Kumakai It is true that multiplayer games sell well. I wouldn't ever discount that. But it's still worth accepting that some gamers like to take a break from those and finish a game like God of War or similar genre of game. Or part of that 3.1 million in 3 days are those only care for the genre. To assume that it's unsuccessful or not as good as multiplayer is not factual at all. I'm not say that's what you're saying here but it disserves it's success just as much as FarCry 5 and other Multiplat titles.
And this is nothing. Wait until The Last of Us 2 comes out. That and Red Dead 2 (I know, multiplat, but the sales will be through the roof).
Spider-Man too seems like it could sell a lot of copies.
Nearly finished my second play through(god of war). Incredible game. Think i'll be going straight in for a third
I'm half way through my third playthrough.. first playthrough i tried to get as many things as possible.. second playthrough i did only the main quest.. third.. doing everything againnnn lol
fighting the valkyrie queen on hard is a lot of fun, currently making my way through God of War difficulty to face her again
I did everything on both first and second play through. I'm pretty sure I'll do everything again on the third. It's damn addictive. I always play games many times over. I'm an single player only gamer
Video games at its finest
@Kumakai, do you have figures on how many PC users there are? Because I'm sure there's well over 100million out there versus all 3 console platforms combined. So, what's the attachment rate for FC5 for ALL platforms? ;)
God of charts
God of No 1°
Can't wait to see npd numbers. God of war deserves it. I bet it's up there at 5 million maybe even more.
Sea of Thieves fell like a rock
Of course it did especially after the critical reception that it received.
lol. Meanwhile it finished 3rd in all of april, it’s 2nd month on the market, after the reception it received and last week was sitting at number 11, it’s 6th or 7th week on the charts, but yeah, total flop 🙄
@Krib Let me tell a good ol’ tale of Evolve. Within the first 3 months, Evolve sold at least 2.5 million copies. Take-Two were happy with the performance that they considered its launch “incredibly successful” and the game to be among the league of the publisher’s “permanent” franchises. Sounds great, right? Except for the part that the player count absolutely tanked. Despite Turtle Rock’s attempts to revive consumer interest by making it FTP, they eventually stopped supporting the game. Before you respond that I said Sea of Thieves will become like Evolve, no I’m not saying that. However, the point is that incredible initial success is not indicative of long-term success.
@Kribwalker Well, SoT have gone down in every weeks. God of War still holding in week fourth.
@krib, downplaying as usual. When was the last xbox game that could claim the same popularity as GoW. Its a looooong time ago if ever.
Anyone else get the black bars on the side of their screen aftee the latest patch? I wanted to replay the story this morning but I couldn't find a fix to the issue.
Go to setting then video change the of HDMI and size of screen to anything then unplug the HDMI, put it back then again go to settings put it all as it was or what is suitable to you. It worked for some.
Ive noticed them since the other patch. Not big black bars but still. It seems there’s a aspect ratio bug or something
"Heya. We’re aware of this & looking into it. Suggestion in meantime is to go to system display settings. Shrink. Confirm. Then go back into display settings & fit to appropriate size." https://twitter.com/SonySan...
Thanks a bunch! Unfortunately that temporary fix didn't work for me.
@LOGICWINS Try and shrink it all the way down and confirm it, and then set the correct size. That's what I did. I think I was in the game as well if I'm not mistaken.
The funny part is, I’ve seen people on sites like VGC claiming the sales were going to drop like a rock after that great first 3 days. I’m calling it: the game broke 5 million just after it’s first week and is probably closer to 7 million by now.
God Of Insane Sales
Awesome. I'll be getting it after my final college exam. Hope it's as good as people say. It looks right up my alley anyway (awesome gameplay + story is something I will always appreciate)
It’s as good as people have said, and than some... It’s an unforgettable & incredible journey. God of War “in my opinion” is not only the best in the series, it’s also the best game I’ve personally played this console generation. From the stunning graphics, to the intense, hard hitting, fast & fluid combat, to the amazing, emotional, funny at times story, that’s told (with that one shot camera) which was so well executed. It’s the total & complete package. And, the photo mode... if you enjoy using this feature in other Sony exclusives, you’ll love it here. I finished it yesterday, and as I type this, I’m already missing Kratos & Atreus =(
I'll second that. It's rare for me these days to 100% games as I don't have as much time as I used to, but I plat'd GOW during the week after beating the Valkyrie Queen and I think I sat there for about 10 minutes after the fight staring into space pondering what I'm going to do now that I'd finished it. One of the few games in my lifetime I really didn't want to end.
They nailed it... More so than any GoW in the series... Hands Down the best game in the franchise and it this year's strongest title by far.
At first you wonder a bit since there's a long tutorial, but then it picks up and it's like their journey to the mountains ; up all the way better and better.
Fantastic work for Donkey Kong and Fallout 4 which still pushes through. And how could I forget GTAV? Awesome.
Ah - I dont know, maybe because we are discussing GOW? Just a thought. Great sales, let's hope it 10mill by years end, should do it with discounts and bundles.
Lol move along troll
lol Keep on ignoring. Ignorance is bliss as they say
You are not fooling everyone here,buddy.
>_> Are you drunk?
Jog on pal, keep moving.
No xbone games on your little list col. No surprise there lol.
Hey EA, do you see what you get when you make an incredible single player game? Sure it won’t make the sales of Call of Duty or Battlefield but single player games can be lucrative without trying to make a game as a service.
Nice sales once again for God of War. Seems like the UK like Donkey Kong as well. Considering the Switch has sold not considerably great in the UK region, it's good to see them right up at the top for a second week running.
This is why gamers have PS4s.. What MS puts out seems like a betrayal for digital sales..
Damn, i must not be a gamer seeing as i dont have a PS4... Oh well; Time to play Fallout 4 ☺
Fallout 4 is good, but not great and it can be buggy.
There are people out there still with a PS2... even THEY are at a better place than the XB1-only ones... yeah a gamer on a phone playing Candy Crush Saga is still a gamer hehe what's you point? but the greatness lies with the gamers tasting the best-est and highest gaming tech the industry has ever produced, top class stories with toppest class graphics... that's what PS brand is for... ...and hoho no, xb1x running Tetris-4K is NOT best-est industry tech btw ;)
Damn, broaden your horizons. You're missing out on some amazing games
No you’re a gamer just not a very smart one imo
This is why you sony loyalists remind me of liberals. Nothings good unless its sony lmao
lol fallout 4
I never said people without PS4s arent gamers.. I said "This is why gamers have PS4s".. Not everyone has the means to get new stuff but if they do, PS4 is an obvious choice
And you xbox loyalists are like a battered girlfriend who keeps going back for more 🤣
Finished it today, clocked in at somewhere between 50 and 60 hours! Amazing game! From the production value in graphics and audio, storytelling, narrative and immensly fun Axe wielding gameplay. Its just top notch from begining to end! Really glad to see it sell so well :)
GOW is doing great. I am also happy for DKCTF.
Great ? It’s doing fantastically.
Um what is the difference. GOW has done great. Nothing appeases Sony fans it seems.
Fantastic is more than just great. God of War did something that risky. Reinvent the franchise and make Kratos the most sympathetic character in God Of War series. Cory Barlog and his team have done something that few studios dare to try reinvent. A lot of people have concern why God Of War went different direction. And people said like it’s like The Last of Us with Kratos. But it’s more than that.
That one vote down is a troll in denial. What do you expect though. (- -)/
Other studios have done this with their franchises. Sure GOW did a good job, but nothing special. It is a lot like LOU, but it does have it's own personality.
@Michelle How is 3.1 million in 3 days and a metacritic of 94 nothing special for a game on a single platform?
@MC, because it wasn't made by nintendo lol.
@michelle But it did do something very special that hasn't bee. Done In Videogames to date. A technique that has only been used in films. The decision to make the entire game a one-shot cinematic experience (minus deaths and initial load) not only made the game better it also helped the. Push the Industry in terms of storytelling and background mechanics to make no load screens. And while yes, load screens are becoming a thing of the past, but to build them into the narrative as Cory and DSM did was a huge accomplishment
Fantastic is like beyond of heaven. It’s like Valhalla.
