One of Sony’s key franchises over the last five to six years has been the God of War series created by David Jaffe. This past March, the final piece of the trilogy was released to retail shelves in the form of God of War III.
The title has been nothing but a huge success both in the form of critical acclaim and in sales. Speaking at the MI6 conference, Sony’s VP Of Marketing Peter Dille announced that God of War III has sold over 1 million copies within just a couple of days of release. This is a great accomplishment for first party developers on Sony’s console and should probably be enough to be the top selling game of March on console. I’d say overall, but come on, they released a Pokemon game, right?
All of the statistics will be released next week on April 8th and you can expect Pokemon, Final Fantasy XIII and God of War III to lead the way in software sales.
