We don't do regular software tracking as of 2019. So the next sales update will come once we get official shipment numbers.

@StreaK you've mentioned discounts a couple times and I'm not seeing heavy discounts? The game's still selling £35~ on Amazon/ShopTo and still full price in Argos, Game, Curry's etc. If anything considering it's a single player game on a console with so many games available for consumers to choose from it's holding its price remarkably well. It's clearly sold significantly more than Vgchartz's estimates and is still selling well considering as of now the game is £35 minimum to buy new.

CGI-Quality: I appreciate the clarification. It was just confusing, for a game to have debuted with such strong sales (over 3 million in a few days) to have just now broken 6 million sales. I always figured something looked off.

Lekzie: Lmao, no I'm not high. But I'm just comparing to Switch games that have been out for 2 years that are still full price and selling. I can only think that GOW just sold through a shit ton so incredibly fast that sales have dropped off rather quickly.

In any case, I'd really love to know what the total sales are as of right now. In the end, no matter how you look at it, discounts are discounts. Don't discounts usually occur when a game drops off in sales?

@StreaK wtf r u on high or something? lol, sony already break even on its 1st 3 days of sales alone and already made alot of profit after a month of sale alone, this an offline game with no server to maintain, so it doesnt matter if the game is half the price now or lower, sony is earning money by every copy sold and this game made to sold console first.

Uh StreaK ~ you need a little perspective. Not only was the game HIGHLY successful (no, it's not losing money), but our data is incomplete (and massively). It sold 5 million within its first month. We currently have it at 6.05.

Think about that.

Yeah, but it's already selling at almost half the price now. So it's already losing money after just a year of release. Shame...

For all the praise GOW is receiving it isn't getting the attention it deserves. Why are the sales already dropping? People don't want to drop their hard-earned money for THIS game??? Shame...it can only mean that it has the equivalent of these sales in digital form then and PS4 digital sales are going up. It's gotta be because for an amazing game like this to not even have 6 million yet is quite shocking to me, especially with all the praise and awards it's getting.
It's tracking WAY above RDR2 for total game awards won. It WILL be the official GAME of 2018!

BOTW first 10 wks = 2.6 million
GOW first 10 wks = 4.3 million
So far BOTW has over 60 weeks of sales on GOW. I'm really curious who comes out on top when the sales settle down for both. Impressive numbers for BOTH titles. Best selling and groundbreaking games for both in their franchise.

@DialgaYeah, no doubt! Hmm...they gotta get on and start tracking the digital sales. The digital era is kinda screwing things up and it gets all scattered and confusing. Back in the day, we just had pure ACTUAL retail numbers and that's it. Now it's just so difficult to actually understand just how well a game is doing.
But man, GO GOW...back in the top 10. Definitely has killer legs. Masterpiece!

@DialgaMarine yeah 9 million based on trophy list, my guess the game sold 8 million physical/digital copies and 1 million pre owned and gamesharing.

DialgaMarine posted 08/10/2018, 02:39
@StreaK I would guess a high digital percentage, yeah. Kindof like how HZD was only at around 4.5 million on VGC when GG announced 7.6 million total. I can honestly see 70 - 75% digital attach rate being accurate. Really makes me curious how well games like Uncharted 4 has actually done.

Wow 9 million??? That'd be damn impressive! So I guess VG is off or it's probably selling more digitally than at retail?

Rumor mill has it that itís sold over 9 million already, based on platinum percentage compared to hard platinum numbers. If true, thatís insane, seeing as the game hasnít even seen its first holiday season yet. I can see it breaking 12 million by its one year anniversary, followed by 15 million LT. And there were that said this wouldnít be the best selling GoW lol

I don't understand the hatred for the map...I didn't have any problems with using the map.

I do agree that the "fast travel" isn't good. I like the lore that gets told between the portals, but when there is no talking and you realize running around does nothing. It's annoying more than helpful or useful.

Agreed on the fast travel part. I mean it was fun the first few times but it isn't really "fast travel" at all. Still, very good game.I enjoyed it a lot.

Just finished the game today, here's my mini-review:

Key
+Positives
~Neutrals
-Negatives

+Great Story, though predictable at a few points

+Good art design and graphics

+ Fun combat

+Good soundtrack

~The fast travel system is creative, but ultimately annoying as the game goes on, due to the fact that there aren't enough fast travel points and the fact that you can't travel from anywhere (only point to point)

-The camera is too close to Kratos and there is no option for camera distance in the settings.

-Poor map, that doesn't give you much information about your area, and no option to buy collectible maps

-Endgame is not great, the final optional boss fight is exceptionally difficult due to randomized attacks, so you need to fully upgrade the best set of armor in the game to beat her, but in order to do that you have to grind for many hours in Niflheim, not fun

Overall Score: 9/10
