Kratos fights his way unattested to top of UK sales chart

9 Comments | posted

God of War III released in the United Kingdom with great success for the franchise as it quickly became the fastest selling installment in the series. This is despite the fact that the PlayStation 3’s install base is only a fraction of what the PlayStation 2’s install base was upon release of the original two.

Compared to its predecessor, God of War III sold at a ratio of 2.61:1 better than God of War II. That sales increase is phenomenal given the amounts of units available and has allowed Sony to double its 2009 total for top selling software titles in the UK for 2010. This is pretty funny considering we’re only three months in and still have yet to see releases of Gran Turismo, ModNation Racers (potential sleeper) and the Q4 lineup that has yet to be announced.

In case some of you are curious, Heavy Rain was the first Sony exclusive this year to top the charts. Let’s hope the success continues for Sony’s software division which often receives slack for a lack of sales.

    Its for the long run XD Ps2 made Sony Millions! Now they present us a reliable and powerful console called the Ps3. Now next Generation, Nintendo will come out with a console that will surpass its competitors, given that they need BluRay from now on (Sony Owns BluRay XD) to further increase game mechanics like how God of War 3 did.

    Good sales means more money for developers, and more chances of triple aaa exclusives dropping on PS3. It’s going to be another fantastic year for PS3, and I’m enjoying every moment of it.

    more sales ensures your next game for that developer which is essentially what gamers want =D
