That's impressive for Japan.

seems sony did it right with spiderman

5 PS4 games in the top 10. Nice work.

Great start, will it sell better than GOW in all markets for FW? God of War is a better game, but I would say Spiderman is more broad interest.

3x more than Gow in Japan
2x more than Gow in UK

I guess we'll see in Europe similar numbers to UK. In US it will probably be similar so I'm expecting a fire higher first week than GOW

That is my expectation as well, but will it have similar legs?

Those are pretty solid numbers for a non-Nintendobtitle in Japan. Wonder if it could possibly break 1 million retail + digital there.

it depends on the 2nd week sales. If they dont have a big drop it can be done
