PlayStation 4 has had plenty of great exclusive games. From the action adventure powerhouse that is Uncharted 4 to the stylized beauty of Persona 5, there are definitely plenty of games to be excited about on the PS4. And now the PlayStation has a new king title among its exclusives library as God of War claims the spot of the fastest selling PS4 exclusive to date.
Kratos has been absent from our PlayStation consoles since 2013 when God of War Ascension was released for the PS3. It seems that people have missed the temperamental god slayer though as the newest title in the franchise managed to sell 3.1 million units within just the first three days of release.
That even eclipses the PS4 installment of one of Sony’s most beloved franchises, Uncharted. Which is rather impressive for a series that has managed to lay dormant for so long.
The head of Sony Santa Monica, Shannon Studstill made sure to acknowledge all of the fans by saying,“I would like to personally thank the millions of fans around the world who decided to embark on Kratos’ latest adventure with us. Your support is truly inspiring, and it’s a reason why we push ourselves every day to go beyond the boundaries of play.”
wow. 🍻 Thank you to everyone who has supported this game!!! We ❤️ you. https://t.co/C6CRlBIba2

Of course, creative director of the game Cory Barlog also made sure to thank everyone via his Twitter. The game has become a smash success completely reviving the once dead franchise. The game was critically acclaimed with dozens of perfect scores, making it one of the best reviewed PlayStation exclusive games as well.
God of War still has a ways to go before it surpasses Uncharted 4‘s 10 million units sold, but with the positive press it’s received, it wouldn’t be far-fetched to believe that it could. So what do you guys think? Will God of War become the best selling PS4 exclusive of all time? Let us know in the comments and be sure to check out more great gaming news and articles on WTFGamersonly.
