May charts: God of War remains at No.1, Nintendo continues to go from strength to strength

The PS4 is stronger than ever while the Switch made more money than the Xbox One at retail this May.

The story is too old to be commented.

I knew Detroit or demon souls remaster would drop god of war from the number one spot but damn to jump back up to the number one spot again in May is crazy for a god of war game. Congratulations again Cory Barlog and SSM. Well deserved and good to see Detroit still doing well at number 5 especially for the type of game it is.

God of War is selling like it deserves to, extraordinarily well.

Nyxus168d ago

So Detroit only needed two days to reach nr 5 on the charts for the entire month? That's very impressive, glad to see the game doing well!

UCForce168d ago

Both of PS4 games are doing pretty well.

Kribwalker168d ago

state of decay as well, needing 4 days for number 6 is also impressive

DialgaMarine168d ago

@Kribwalker SoD2 is also a multiplat.

MuddyWaters168d ago

Good to see, this should highlight why we need variety in the industry and not just chasing the current fad like Battle Royale.

SuperSaiyanGod41168d ago

State of decay did well but isn't it also $30 if I'm not mistaken.

Kribwalker168d ago

@dialga

Yet this chart is physical only, and you can only buy the physical copy on Xbox......

but it’s also on gamepass too, so that makes it even more impressive 😉

zeuanimals168d ago

@Kribwalker

It would be impressive if it was a good game. But the fact that it's selling so well even though it's not shouldn't be something to be impressed by. That just shows how desperate people are for any Xbox exclusives, good or bad.

IamTylerDurden1167d ago (Edited 167d ago )

The fact that SoD2 is selling is more a sign that Xbox is severely lacking in quality content rather than a sign of it being a quality game. It seems to be a technical mess and a very uninspiring sequel, so they say. It's a 67 Open Critic https://opencritic.com/game...

Tobse167d ago

Love this logic. Everybody is saying people only get Xbox games on gamepass. If the game still sells well its because multiplat, yet its not even available physical on PC. Next excuse is the lacking games excuse for it to sell well. Gotta move that goalpost hard eh

IamTylerDurden1166d ago (Edited 166d ago )

Nailhead

Like the other side doesn't move the goalpost? The excuse for every Xbox "exclusive" that under performs is that "Microsoft no longer cares about sales, it's all about engagement".

Is SoD2 even selling well? Microsoft literally said the same thing about SoT. They said the same "2 million players" stat and said it was breaking multiple sales records. But in reality it sold 202k its first week. I'm interested to see if SoD2 can even outsell the 2 million sales of the original. Instead of vague engagement numbers it'd be nice to see some sales figures.

Honestly Detroit looks like shit to me, I'll pick it up when it's £20. I thought Beyond: Two Souls was awful.

IamTylerDurden1167d ago (Edited 167d ago )

Detroit has received solid reviews and many people call it QD's best game yet. It's been hovering around 80 Metacritic since launch and it has beautiful production value. Your hate is ill advised. Perhaps the Battle Royale genre is more your speed?

Kribwalker167d ago

that’s my plan. rent or by cheap in 2 months

GruntboxWizard166d ago

Well I loved Heavy Rain and i'm happy for the developers but it doesn't seem like my cup of tea. It's just not for me.

UCForce168d ago

God of War is a masterpiece. It surpassed my expectations. Great Job, SSM and Cory Barlog ! And Detroit Become Human, congratulations QD.

MasterCornholio168d ago

I'm so glad it's doing well. That's the way to show them Sony.

showtimefolks168d ago (Edited 168d ago )

Detroit did well for being in the market for only few days to still end up high in monthly charts

I think it's safe to assume God of war will at the very least sell 10 plus million and life time sales could even hit 12-15 million

DialgaMarine168d ago

10 million sales is a possibility by the end of this alone, especially seeing how its still so popular on YouTube.

showtimefolks168d ago

I think it will continue to sell to stay within top 5-10 for next few months. It's already the best selling god of war game of all time

IamTylerDurden1167d ago (Edited 167d ago )

God of War will eat 10 mill, probably 12 lifetime. Detroit will probably sell a few million. If Detroit hits 3 they're good. Regardless, it's nice to see Sony spit out quality exclusives.

Flewid638168d ago

It's crazy....regardless of how polarizing reviews are for Quantic Dream games, they still sell well.

Gamers speak louder than reviews.

showtimefolks167d ago

My issue with reviewers is that instead of reviewing the game for what it is they review them for what they want the game to be

IamTylerDurden1167d ago

But the game got good reviews, it's been hovering around 80 Metacritic since launch.

Liqu1d167d ago

Traditional reviews are honestly becoming less and less relevant. People nowadays will watch gameplay on Twitch and YouTube and they'll rather listen to likeminded internet personalities than some random guy at IGN or Gamespot who barely plays games.
