So GOW 2.2 million week 1 and Spider-Man 2.4 week 1 at retail. I predict RDR2 to top 3 million and be like close to 4 million with digital.
Great numbers, all around, on PS4. I'm personally just a fan of GOW but it's nice to see good games selling so well.
How come vgchartz estimate 2.4 million when Sony says it sold 3.3 million in 3 days? Are there areas Sony don't cover and the game sells .9 million there?
I feel like I really should play this game, but I'm just not in the mood for another open world game. There are so many of these this gen. I will just wait for price cuts. I'm not in the mood for RDR2 for the same reason.
I hear ya. This year i've done AC Rouge & Origins, Spiderman and God of war (not totally open technically). Odyssey and RDR2 will have to be next year for me
