God of War is not only one of the highest rated PS4 games of all time but it is also now the fastest selling PS4 exclusive. Sony announced today that in the first three days, God of War sold 3.1 million copies worldwide both at retail and digitally.
This makes it the fastest selling PS4 exclusive to date having bested Uncharted 4 which sold 2.7 million in the first week and Horizon: Zero Dawn which sold 2.6 million in the first two weeks. This is very impressive and it’s very possible that the game could have sold 4 or 5 million by now.
God of War is also the highest rated original PS4 game to date with a 95 average review score so it’s great that so many gamers have joined Kratos and Atreus on their new journey. You can read the full press release from Sony below.
