God of War is already breaking records


Last week I reported that God of War could have the biggest launch in PS4 history as the game is already the highest rated PS4 exclusive ever released. I also remember mentioning that it would just be a few days until I am writing about its success. Well, here we are. God of War broke records over the weekend in more ways than one.

According to UK sales charts, it is now the fastest-selling franchise in the country just on physical sales alone. The game overtook Sony's other PS4 exclusive, Shadow of the Colossus as well as sold 35% more than its predecessor, God of War 3. This is big news given how much bigger retail games were back when God of War 3 was released and the fact that the new God of War beat the game in the digital age is quite a big deal. 

According to GFK Chart-Track, the game took the top spot in the weekly charts making it the third God of War game to achieve the spot after God of War 2 and God of War 3. Sony, in general, is rocking the UK sales charts with two exclusives in the top three spots. Yakuza 6: The Song of Life made its debut at number three, and of course God of War is in the first spot. In second we have Far Cry 5 which has shifted down to make way for Kratos. 

  1. God of War
  2. Far Cry 5
  3. Yakuza 6: The Song of Life
  4. FIFA 18
  5. Mario Kart 8: Deluxe
  6. Super Mario Odyssey
  7. Fallout 4
  8. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
  9. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of Wild
  10. GTA 5

Of course, God of War will be even bigger this week as sales numbers start to trickle in. We will know more at the end of the week when charts and sales can be compared to other games after a week on the market. If you have not picked up God of War then what is the reason?
