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.

Don't feel bad Ben. I haven't played it yet either. I am 45 hours into Final Fantasy 8 so I intend on finishing this before I crack open any new games but I do in fact have GOW3 and FF13. I know it is totally awesome. All these reviews can't be wrong. Only thing that has me waiting is that Kratos deserves my full attention and what Kratos deserves, Kratos gets.
I am curious how many it has sold though. I wonder what the record is for a PS3 exclusive as well as a multiplatform.

Impresive. Can someone remind me how fast Uncharted 2 was selling? Anyway Ben, I'm the other way around - playing GOW3 only, not touching anything else untill I finish (still have FF13 to start). And I think thats the best way to fully enjoy a game - focus yourself to only one at a time, not 4 simultaneously...

I picked up GoW3 on day one and didnt play any other games until wednesday when i got Platinum. Such an outstanding game from start to finish.

Santa Monica deserves all the sales they get. GoW3 may not be very long, but its the most fun you can have for $60.

Alienange, its all about dodging. On the easier mods you get used to running in balls-out and destroying everything in sight, but on Titan you really have to take your time with the battles and carefully place every attack.
Just pay really close attention to what Poseidon does before he attacks. Every boss telegraphs their attacks in some way so you really have to focus on every movement they make before and after they attack.

Just stick to it, when you do make it through on Titan you'll feel invincible.

@Alienage: You really need to get used to the much harder difficulty, but when you pay attention and remind yourself that you actually have a block and a dodge button(stick), you'll get along just fine and magic can help too sometimes, I keep forgetting that.

the hardest fight for me on titan was the hades fight, after i managed to beat him, the rest was cake. (even zeus, his patterns are easier to evade)

just stick with it alienange, and remember, the block button is your best friend on titan mode. if you time it just right, it will knock people back and make things a lot easier for you

@Alienage

I don't know about everyone else, but my experience with the GoW games (especially Chains of Olympus) is that the first boss you fight is actually pretty hard.

Make sure to use a lot of magic on Posiden, sometimes if you start the magic attack when he is about to hit you with the spider leg thingies you will not get hurt by them.

@alien

dodge dodge dodge! the hits just take that much more health away in Titan mode, and work on your timing for the blocks, eventually you do it out of reflex ive blocked 3 or 4 blows in a row with the fleece from an enemy combo just out of reflex plus its fun , and the counteratack works wonders on some enemies

enemies hit harder, so you have to play more defensive :D cronos in titan is.....making me scream osbscenities at my tv to say the least..

Come on it only takes a couple of days to go and beat GOW3 and when you come back to FF13 it will feel fresh again

So far for me I have taken 2 big breaks in FF13, one to beat Yakuza 3 and one to beat GOW3. And I'm really glad I did because FF13 was starting to feel really repetitive.

Whenever the really huge games come out I will try and limit each session to kind of "savor" the experience. This worked really well with Uncharted 2 because at the end of every 2 chapters or so there would be a huge action sequence and I felt completely satisfied with turning it off until the next night.

Say Ben, where did you find the information that Uncharted 2 is reaching 4 million? VGC has it at 3.08 million or so and I'm pretty sure they're undertracking it. I'd be interested to know where you got that info.

Thank you for clearing that up. Everyone is saying that Sony stated awhile back that Uncharted 2 has surpassed Uncharted in sales, but they only updated it to that effect very recently. I guess we'll see a big upward adjustment sometime soon.

... but you never know, Sony may have been saying "sold" as in "sold to retailers."

Over time the top Sony exclusives will rack up the sales... people need a little time to either add these games to their collections, or at least finish the ones they have bought and get these big hitters a few weeks or months after they drop. Through out this whole year and into next I expect the drip drip effect to continue pumping up Sony AAA game sales numbers...

As Kowhoho stated above... Uncharted is in "unchartered" territory now, nearing 4 million... around there... no reason why GoWIII will not reach that eventually, and maybe more... and lets not forget GT5 when it drops... initial sales will be huge... and it would not surprise me if it reaches the 5 to 8 million mark fairly quickly... overt time GT5 should pass the 10+ million mark, but it will take some time...

Ben -

Dont ask your readers for forgiveness.

Ask Kratos. Then again, avoid that as well. He's liable to kill you.

Play the game man. You owe yourself to be treated the greatest action game of all time.

EDIT - I don't hold anyones sales numbers as gold unless it comes from Sony or one of the publishers. To many inconsistencies..

That way when you beat it you'll feel super accomplished. The game is so brutal. LOL. Unforgiving... It may be a 10 hour game but its taken me way longer to get where im at.LOL.

I agree with your decision to hold off on GOWIII until you get through FFXIII Ben. Personally I wanted a fresh palette to savor the sheer scope of GOWIII. I played the collection through before I got my copy delivered and that made it all the more awesome.

MW2 platinum is pretty easy, the only way you would be held back is if you dont have a good partner in spec ops. I got 3 stars on most of the spec ops mission by myself. the only ones i needed help on was the ones that you need to have 2 people and the one killing all the juggernauts on that shanty town.

I did most on my own as well. Not that hard when you figure out what needs to be done. The favela juggernaut on vet is definitely tough, but I'm already down to 7 dead. It's those last three that cause me trouble.

Funny though. Reading the trophy list I thought I'd never do it. Once I started pounding away at it I realized it was completely doable. The campaign on vet is an awesome good time.

i didnt say that i wasnt going to play the games i bought, i meant i havent gotten to it yet. I never had a backlog of games before and i was just bombarded with games the past 3 months. i had 3 rpgs (final fantasy 13, white knight chronicles, resonance of fate), heavy rain, mag, bad company 2, and the entire god of war series. i dont like playing 2 or 3 games at a time. i prefer to do things one game at a time. right now i'm working on FF13 along with the final online trophy for bad company 2, i also never played a game while playing a final fantasy game except 13. but that last trophy was just getting on my nerves. i am working on playing all the games i got. probably gonna go with god of war, then heavy rain with multiple playthroughs, and do resonance of fate last since its probably going to take a lot of time. but first, ff13 and bad company 2. I still havent played the marked missions other than the ones that would give me the growth egg. again, i am working on this backlog. its a good thing i'm not interested in buying any new game till the fall.

Of course it sold well...its GOWIII. I personally think this is the only game I have played this year that has replay value. Just for everyone's information, the games I have play for '10 is BC2, Heavy Rain (replay value for endings), Bioshock 2, Bayonetta, and just started Just Cause 2 (not a bad game). Of course this is a personal opinion, but I still which they provided more story. Now when the hell do we get GT5..lol I still need to play FFXIII, but I just can't get into the anime story it presents, I'll rent it first to see if I like it.

Hopefully GoW 3 will be my 1rst platinum, yes still have yet to get one. I was THIS close to it for Infamous but got sick of looking for the VERY last blast shard, god I hate finding 100s of hidden packages.
Already got the 1000 hit combo and titan isn't that much harder so far, just got to SPOILER!
Herc
END SPOILER, but those challenges look like they're going to be the real hurdle, much like GOW 2.
But now I finally got Mass Effect 2 running so the platinum will prolly wait a while.

EDIT:
Arnold, will you please take RehanSB's comment away(he spoils the end), before Ben sees it, if he didn't already, which I hope not.


Anyways, it's ok Ben, just don't wait long enough till everyone has already played it and you see all the ending spoilers and whatnot (rehanSB, this is what I meant).

I have 4 trophies left, the dam Olympus challenge trophy, the trophy for which you need to blind 100 enemies with helios' bodypart, the titan playthrough and the 1000-hit combo(which will probably be my last, unless the challenge of Olympus will take too many tries, not that it didn't already, 3 more to go).

I contributed to the sales of the GOWIII. When I showed up to store there was only one copy left.

ATTN Ben:

There's a comment by a RehanSB, that you should not read, but will want to delete as it contains major spoilers for GOW3.

I have been dying to play God of War III. I picked it up day 1 and have only gotten 20 minutes in. There are several reasons for this:

1. TV is rarely free
2. Parents are home and are against grossly violent or highly sexual content
3. Uni and primary school teaching

So, I often have to wait for the perfect moment when none of the above applies just to play the game. Can't wait to finish uni and move out with a full time job.

its just one of those games ben...

those games that 3 minutes into the game the production values and epicness alone drop your jaw in disbelief that this is rendering and not some sleazly stuffed in cgi....you say in your mind this is "pure awsome" the game has to go downhill from here because this is just too much....then you keep playing and totally forget about the last part because its pure awsome alll over again , the attention to detail is ...undescribable, kratos is by far the most polished , well made, and graphically amazing game character i have seen on a screen...

i was expecting it to be better than that, he did not mention if that was just US or worldwide though.
considering this is the first big well known series to hit the ps3 i was expecting it to sell through the roof!
i mean come on its GOW for christs sake, GOW is to sony what mario is to nintendo and what halo is to M$.
if this dont do it, what will?
still have to say GOW was the best of the series, the level design was top notch i cant help but think SA really need david back, ever since he left the level design just feels way out of wack.
especially GOW3 its just far to repetitive and restrictive, the whole game revolves around a few areas.
they needed more puzzles too, like large open world puzzles like the hera garden one but bigger.
combat in GOW3 feels the same, but everything else feels like from another series.

ppl should know this by now, ps3 owners don't buy games. This should be selling 5-6 million in the first 3-4 months but it will never do that.

LOL, it's all good, when you get to God of War III you'll love it. I like finishing up a game too before starting another.

Uncharted 2 selling 4 million...sweet.

Not surprised this game is F'ing Amazing, I was playing the other day and looked up and damn it got dark, looked at the clock and WOW I had played for 6 hours straight.... This is what happens when the kids aren't home and are with the grandparents sit and catch up on my games lol.
GOW III just drags you in and you never know it till the sun goes down and your hands are sore from playing so long ;)
