April NPD 2018: God of War is the big daddy

Santa Monica Studio’s God of War had the best launch month ever for a PlayStation 4 exclusive, in terms of dollar sales. It instantly ascended to the No. 1 spot on the top sellers list for April and it is now No. 3 on the best-selling games of 2018 behind Capcom’s Monster Hunter: World at No. 2 and Ubisoft’s Far Cry 5 at No.1.

God of War is the best selling PlayStation exclusive of all-time besting GTA San Andreas for PS2 in 2004. And it did it in only 10 days on the market. Damn. The power of sp games.

Adding on to your thought process.... I think what also helped was having a long gap between releases. I mean it had been roughly 8 years between GoW3 and this one. Or 5 if you count Ascension and this one. Sometimes having a nice break between mainline entries can really bring the fans back around.

I know it felt like forever just waiting for this one. Hopefully we dont have to wait as long for there to be a sequel (but then i wouldnt want them to rush it and have it not be the best it can be).

The ball is now on Insomniac and Spidey!

Then later Naughty Dog and TLOU Part 2

It's "Boi"... ;-)

OT, congrats to Sony and the development team. Truly deserving game. The game already had to break expectations when it was announced then the reviews poured in... People's expectations went over the roof including mine. The night it unlocked I played for 2 hours and I was just mind blown about how beautiful and amazing the game was. Took me an entire weekend to finish 90% of the main story... When I finished it I was relieved and little sad. Such an amazing game.

I'm one of those gamers for who there's no in between - either I play the game for 10 hours straight or I don't touch it at all. There's nothing like lemme game for 2 hours.. it always becomes 4+ hours. Lol. Anyways... God of War was the game that I played for 10+ hours after a very long time. Amazing game and thank you for the game, Sony.

"It turns out that people were way into checking out Kratos’s latest adventure." and it was well worth the wait.

almost done with my 2nd play though and will 100% the game.

Truly outstanding game. I can see myself coming back to play anytime I need to scratch that itch like I did with the old trilogy. No need for MP and microtransacrions to keep me engaged or brainwashed.
