God of War is the fastest selling PS4 exclusive yet, Sony confirms

God of War managed to sell over 3.1 million copies worldwide during its first three days of release, making it the fastest selling first-party PS4 title yet.

The PS4 exclusive has become an absolute darling amongst critics, so much so that director Cory Barlog was brought to tears by the positive reception.

Turns out it was also a huge commercial success with over 3 million copies sold globally during its first 72 hours of release. Oh, and it’s only on PS4, making the feat even more impressive.

“I would like to personally thank the millions of fans around the world who decided to hop on Kratos’ latest adventure with us. Your support is truly inspiring, and it’s a reason why we push ourselves every day to go beyond the boundaries of play,” said Shannon Studstill, VP, Product Development, Head of Santa Monica Studio, SIE.

It’s no surprise that God of War has swept so many players across the world off their feet as it’s truly fantastic.

Earning 9/10 in our review, we praised its gorgeous visuals, engaging story and deep, impactful combat system:

‘God of War tells a wonderful tale through a beautiful spectrum speckled with more than a few drops of the blood of your enemies. It’s a shame, then, that boss fights have fallen by the wayside at every level to become terribly monotonous – but if that’s the cost of what Santa Monica has built, it’s certainly a price worth paying.

The ending isn’t as grand I’d hoped for, but the setting up of a sequel makes up for this – and there’s still plenty left to do in the Lake of Nine. God of War is the best in the series.’
