So I'm thinking to do a revamp of this thread.  The OP will have links to posts about different NPD months, etc.  
I have no idea if/when I'd do it, but it might be nice...

Yeah I've completely neglected this OP. I used to enjoy running it as well :'(

If people could help with posts, whenever they have time.  
Someone could do like 2018 sales, someone else could do 2017, etc.  

And then when the years are done, we could put together all the January npd's together for a post, etc.

All your fault!  /s

UK God of War launch is the biggest in the series history | GamesIndustry.biz

35% more first week sales than GOW3. So around 90k sales. That's a heck of a lot weaker than I was expecting. Kind of a shame, but it didn't seem so big in the UK from the circles of people I know.

And some of y'all were seriously expecting 4m+ first week... would be lucky to have sold over 2m with this UK performance.

Horizon did 120k and Uncharted 4 180k for comparison. So GoW only sold half of Uncharted 4. That's crazy.

Yakuza 6 biggest yakuza launch yet despite GoW. dang good

God of War was huge in Spain. Seems like the UK was an anomaly for Europe.

That game is just so enjoyable. Kinda interesting it sold so little on Wii U. Seems most Wii U buyers were hardcore Nintendo fans and jumped to the Switch ASAP. Who would have expected that  ::)

Lol yeah, crazy.

The game is extremely enjoyable, but also just incredibly high quality. I put 100 hours in and wish there was enough content for me to play 100s more hours, that gameplay just never gets old.

Also more on GoW numbers. If it performs like Spain elsewhere in Europe/ ROW then it'll probably come close to matching Uncharted 4 (with better digital). Add in a much better US performance and GoW will outperform it, and maybe pull a 3m opening week. Still possible.

Wow

It's grown a lot in Europe. If it's still huge in the US we're in for a huge first week globally
