Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that God of War has become the fastest selling first party title on the PS4. The game sold 3.1 million copies worldwide in just three days, which also includes digital sales. The previous (known) record holder was Uncharted 4, which sold 2.7 million copies in the first week.
It’s clear to see what the game has been popular – almost every PS4 owner on our friends list has played (or is playing) the game.
Shannon Studstill, VP, Product Development, Head of Santa Monica Studio, had the following to day:
“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. I’d also like to thank our amazing team at Santa Monica Studio. The passion for storytelling across the team is undeniable, and I hope it’s clear that we never settle for what’s conventional. We look forward to hearing more about how fans are enjoying the game and creating new memories of their favorite God of War gameplay moments that will be remembered for decades to come.”
