I should have added to why GoW:GoS sold
much less. Piracy was huge at the time
it released. It released the same year
as GoW3 and was seen as vastly inferior
(which is unfair to compare a PSP games
to a PS3 game). Also the PSP was doing
poorly everywhere in the world apart
from Japan where apart from GoW3 the
series was never popular. Looks like I
was right about GoW:GoS being around
1-1.5m, it was at 1.2m by May 31st 2012.
I wonder how much it sold now, probably
around 1.75-2.00m (including

God of War: Chains of
Olympus did amazingly well, I bet a God
of War on the Vita could be just as
successful and a vastly better game
thanks to the much improved hardware and
a 2nd analogue stick!

I wouldn't say GOS had a deeper story
because all the God of War games have
amazing stories and writing, however GOS
focused more a Kratos' character for the
first time in the series which was not
only brilliantly done and added depth to
his character but really adds to the
overall story in the series. I think GOS
sold less at retail because it must've
done amazingly on PSN, digital
distribution was nowhere near as big
when COO was released which explains why
it did so well at retail. GOS is
probably somewhere from 1-1.5m including

Why did this sell much better than Ghost
of Sparta? From what i heard and seen
Ghost of Sparta had a much deeper story?
