God Of War debuted at the top of UK video games chart and is the biggest opening week one release after Far Cry 5. The new chapter in the God of War saga was released exclusively for PlayStation 4 a few days ago and it seems that the launch of the game was the best ever for the exclusive.
God Of War is the fastest selling game of the series in the UK before which God Of War 3 held the record back in 2010. It has oversold God Of War 3 by 35 percent. Keep in mind these sales are physical only and since the release of God Of War 3 digital sales have increased a-lot so the difference is quite much more than we know right now.
GameStop has also recorded a high number of copies sold since the launch of God of War. This statement came from an Insider of GameStop who said that the sales of the game exceeded all expectations, registering a value of 200% at present, it is still difficult to quantify a specific number of copies sold.
It’s been a strong week for PS4 exclusives as Yakuza 6 also released and debuted at number third and also had the best week one sales for the series ever.
After being shaken by God Of War, Far Cry 5 came to the second spot. Fifa 18 coming at number four and Grand Theft Auto V staying at number 10 for now.
