God of War has been the perfect storm for PlayStation. After the overwhelmingly positive impressions after the E3 2016 reveal to the copious amount of perfect review scores, Kratos has once again cemented his legacy as one of the godliest PlayStation Icons ever.
Now he has a new crown. As the fastest selling PS4 exclusive ever. The newest God of War has sold over 3.1 million copies worldwide after the first 3 days of release (April 20-22) and is on its way to breaking even more records before things are said and done.
Shannon Studhill, Head of Santa Monica Studios offered a personal message thanking fans of the game for their support.
