God Of War III Sells A Million In "Just A Few Days"
It's not exactly a big surprise, but it appears that God of War III is going to be a gigantic seller.
Prior to its launch last month, many analysts were saying that SCEA's latest masterpiece would become the best-selling PlayStation 3 exclusive thus far. And according to early indications, there's every chance that such predictions could eventually become true: according to what Sony's Vice President of Marketing Peter Dille said at the recent MI6 conference, GoWIII sold 1 million copies "in just a couple days." He didn't specify whether he was referring to worldwide sales; wouldn't it be all the more impressive if that 1 million registered in the US alone? Furthermore, remember that the game has been out for nearly three weeks now (it launched in North America on March 16 and in Europe on March 18 and 19), so if it sold a million in a few days, how many might it have sold thus far? We'll have to wait for the official NPD numbers - set to come out on April 8 - but in the meantime, everyone should expect a big tally for God of War III. By the way, the most recent exclusive to heat up the charts was Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, which has sold around 4 million copies to date.
Incidentally, is it at all strange that I haven't played GoWIII yet? Shouldn't I be punished, or something? I'm stuck playing FFXIII and I hate going to another game before I finish, so... But maybe that's not a good enough excuse. Forgive me.
