Should sell another 300,000 by then end of this year, then it'll reach 5m by the end of 2012. Hopefully GOW4 will come out in March 2013 on the PS3 (Not interested in the Vita at all). Sony Santa Monica, thank you for this masterpiece.

I agree with the complaints on the writing but the locations and art design were well done and very memorable imo they were limited with the location(it all had to take place on Olympus.).

A203D posted 20/10/2011, 08:39
It could be nostalgia, but what The_Joker_Product has said about art design is true. and if we compare this to Castlevania Lords of Shadow there is no comparasion. Castlevania was 3 times longer (great DLC content), AMAZING ending. well written story. excellent level design. and whats up with the dialogue; "Hope is what makes us strong, it is what we fight with when all else is lost". this sounds like its written by a kid, this isnt an after school special, its God of War, why is it written this way!!

The_Joker_Product posted 20/10/2011, 04:48
The games arent that old how much nostalgia could their be, the graphics are great and the gameplay is...well pretty much exactly the same but its the rest. The story was pretty bad, after seeing that ending for GOW2 i was really excited for the war between the gods and titans but there wasnt one except for the first 10 minutes then for some reason the titans are now also agaisnt you. The level designs werent particulary interesting, nothing like what GOW2s was which had levels in Athens and the whole place with the Sisters of fate. This game had way too much backtracking and too many dark caves from the place you fight Hades to the place with those Three Kings and the swords to the place with all the boxes etc there were hardly any outdoor areas at all.

I respect your guys opinions but for me this was BY FAR the best designed and directed GOW game. I played the collection before this release(never played them b4). I am inclined to think nostalgia is clouding your vision a bit.

I dont care, people can hate us. but the reason we say this is because we love this series and arnt happy with the way Stigg directed the finale. i believe had Jaffe (or maybe Cory) continued until the end, it wouldve won game of the year everywhere, wouldve been the biggest PS3 game, like God of War 2 is considered the best PS2 game. and ultimately it wouldve sold more copies.

Person below me is JustGamers and Heavenly Kings Alt account?. Everything A203D says is absolutley true, i liked GOW3 but its story was awful especially compared to GOW2, and the settings really were boring, it was mostly in a cave, what happened the first two had beautiful locations but GOW3s was just so boring to look at. The Titans amounted to barely anything in the game. Good game but like GTAIV a huge let down.

@Bob-Foolery, you've said what i've been thinking. the story was abysimal and the level design was bad. the centrepeice of the game is a cave with large boxes in it, its called a labyrinth but its not. i remember in God of War 2 when i was overlooking the Palace of the Fates, and you can see the clouds above you, thats excellent art, level design. and the reason is because David Jaffe the creator of the series was not involved with this. which is why it will be never be a top tier God of War game!!

Can't wait to see how it does during its 2nd xmas holidays and if Sony are still going to release the supposed master collection, that should help increase sales, especially if they bundle it with the PS3, Sony would be stupid not too.

@Gearbox: I agree, this is already Sony's best-selling exclusive in America and it's still going very strong and will only get stronger as PS3 sales increase, the GOW Origins/Master collections release and GOW IV rumours garner gamers attention to the franchise. America alone could push this game to 5m especially with the upcoming Master collection and everything the Trilogy edition and EMEAA & Japan sell from now till it stops selling is going to be in addition to the 5m.

Another 23 weeks, xmas holiday boost AND the God of War Master collection so I think about 850K (unless Sony bundle the GOW Master collection with the PS3, then it'll be quite a lot more). Overall I predict 4,350,000 or 4,470,000 including the Trilogy edition by the end of this year.

A203D I disagree, they should keep Kratos as the main protagonist, also they've already covered what happened to Deimos, I don't think being abducted as a child by Ares and being locked away in deaths domain until adulthood when Kratos frees you would make for a very good game. Anyway, whatever Sony Santa Monica do will be amazing, every sequel they make is better than its predecessor, GOW3>2>1 and GOW GOS>COO (Look at the user scores here on Vgchartz, also the vast majority of GOW fans elsewhere agree with this, check the polls on the Facebook God of War fan page, also there's a poll on Metacritic). God of War IV is going to be another masterpiece. fauzman Yeah I agree, however Kratos did help to make reparations for his actions on the world by impaling himself which released hope to mankind giving them the ability to eventually rebuild the world without the aid of the Gods.

@KratosGodKiller i think its time to end Kratos's story, maybe they could do another PSP type spinoff, but i think they might try and introduce his brother Demos as the new protagonist. which i'm fine with, they can make a new story around that imo.

KratosGodKiller posted 05/07/2011, 03:57
Yeah, I'd say 5m-5.25m lifetime (around 2015) if GOW IV isn't made, +0.25m if it is. Well, I've come up with quite a few possibilities for how Kratos may return. 1) In GOW 3 Kratos died on a phoenix carving which in Greek myth is a symbol of rebirth. 2) Kratos went back in time in GOW 2 to fight Zeus just after he had been killed, but as we know Kratos was resurrected by Gaia so there must've been two Kratos' alive at the same time :S... All my other theories are more obvious so I'll leave it there. As for what else is there left to do, I'd say there's still plenty of unused Greek myth to use as inspiration. I think the main antagonist for GOW IV will be Chaos itself, as well as Nyx (Goddess of night) and Hypnos (God of sleep) and then there are still other Gods and all their offspring and other notable figures in Greek myth. I hope they don't use a new protagonist, otherwise they might as well start a new franchise because God of War without Kratos just wouldn't be the same.

Including the GOW: Trilogy Edition sales, God of War III has now sold 3,957,745 copies. Also, Vgchartz hasn't bothered to track the America exclusive GOW 3: Ultimate Edition sales so it's impossible to accurately predict how much GOW 3 has really sold.

If that turns out to be true, I'd buy a Vita just for the remake of GOW Betrayal! Yeah, announcing GOW IV at E3 would've overshadowed Sony's other franchises; E3 2012 is going to be EPIC! GO GOW!!! XD

most probably the remake would be for VITA considering that all the prequels to the main (home console) games are for a portable device. It would be awesome to have PS3 like experience in a portable!! I really hope Ready at Dawn is doing it. Also, I think they havent announced this E3 because they want people to be focus on Uncharted and Twisted Metal. Those are great games but GOW is too damn AWESOME!! XD......GO GOW!!!

Sbvgc2049 Yeah, apparently it makes someone 'cool' to hate on something that's successful and critically acclaimed. They'll never troll on a game that's widely considered bad because they know no-one's going to bother argue with them, and causing arguments with random people on the internet is all these incompetent, pathetic, low-life trolls want to do with their time.

And it's certainly undertracked in EMEAA. A lot of the big shops/websites in the UK (Amazon/Play.com/Game/Tesco to name a few) currently list this game in their top 20/40 best-selling PS3 games, so these EMEAA figures make no sense as its most definitely sold more in the UK alone than Vgchartz has it listed at for EMEAA for the past 16 weeks.

It's definitely undertracked in EMEAA. Some examples to back-up my claim = Currently in the UK it's the 5th best-selling PS3 game in Zavvi, top 40 in Tesco, 20th on Play.com, top 40 on Amazon and top 80 in Game. It's sold much more in the UK alone than vgchartz has it listed for the entire EMEAA during the past 20 or so weeks.

Uncharted 2 at 60 weeks was at 4.05m but that was during its 2nd xmas holidays boost. GOW3 has only had one xmas boost and is still just under 0.14m away from UC2 and 1.09m more than LBP ...

GodOfWar_3ever, I also think GoW 3 was better than GoW 2, the amount of things done better in GoW 3 totally outnumber things (if anything at all) GoW 2 does better than GoW 3. Those epic Titan vs God battle flashbacks were happening in real-time during the first 20mins of the game, didn't you notice in the background at certain parts you see the leviathan pull down a Titan (Don't know its name), you see Hades pull a titan 'Oceanus' down Mt. Olympus, you also see Helios fighting with another Titan 'Perses' and then there's the cinematic where Poseidon launches himself at a Titan 'Epimetheus'. I think the entire riding on Gaia whilst she's climbing Mt. Olympus also whilst fighting the leviathan/Poseidon with the God vs Titan battle happening in the background is absolutely spectacular, far more epic than the God vs Titan battle cinematic in GoW2. I think Pandora's effect on the story was perfectly implemented. At the start of their relationship Kratos doesn't care for Pandora, Kratos pursues Pandora just to use her in order for him to gain the power to achieve his revenge without a care about the fact Pandora would have to sacrifice herself. The relationship gradually progresses to form a father-daughter-like relationship between them, to such an extent that Kratos was willing to forfeit his revenge in order to stop her sacrificing herself, showing he has a compassionate side. I didn't miss Linda Hunt's narration at all, it did not affect the game/story in the slightest for me, I'm personally glad the narration is gone; it allows the player to interpret the story themselves rather than have someone explain everything to you as if you're brain-dead. (By the way, if you had the patience to sit through the prologue you would've realized that it was in fact Linda Hunt narrating, so she wasn't completely absent from the game anyway)
