Congratulations to Sony Santa Monica and Game Director Cory Barlog as their game has passed the 5 million units sold worldwide mark in the first month of sales. The game has broken record after record, selling 3.4 million units in only the launch weekend.
According to the Sales tracking group NPD’s analyst Mat Piscatella, God of War was the highest launch month dollar sales for an April release since Grand Theft Auto IV in 2008. Playstation 4 software sales also hit a record April high for any platform. The previous record was Xbox 360 in April 2008. Finally God of War is Playstation’s most successful exclusive game at launch in dollar sales.
The game’s performance matches its quality; absolutely God tier. The success of the limited edition God of War PS4 Pro bundle was also incredible, it was April’s best selling hardware item in dollar sales.
Here at The Loot Gaming we love God of War. Our review can be found here and it was absolutely full of praise for the title. We also put together a spoiler free guide for anyone who is yet to start the game, check that out here! With all this success a sequel is a guarantee and I cannot wait for that announcement to come, although it’s probably a while away. Do you know what isn’t a while away? E3 2018. It’s right around the corner, if you want all the latest news on the greatest games, stick to thelootgaming.com.
