gowIII

SCEA VP of marketing Peter Dille has revealed that God of War III has sold over 1 million units in “just a couple days”.

But speaking at the MI6 conference yesterday, Dille did not specifically say if the numbers for the Sony Santa Monica epic were for the US or worldwide.

The numbers for the US will definitely be known by this time next week, regardless: NPD will release its official figures for March next Thursday.

Thanks, IGN.

    Quote from IGN

    “Sony’s VP Of Marketing Peter Dille stated God of War III had sold 1 million units in “just a couple days” after the game launched. ”

    “just a couple of days” = two weeks?

    It has been two weeks since it released.

    EDIT: Yah, I fucked up. My bad. Friday sleepy head ftw.

    Can anyone remember what percentage of every game sale a first party publisher like Sony would see if a game sells for 60 dollars?

    I’d just like to get a better handle on how much a gamble a 44 million dollar game is these days.

    I think this will be the best selling Ps3 exclusive so far in total sales untill GT 5 comes out anyway.

    I’m aware that the second one’s lifetime sales are ~2.5 million. go ahead, post a link to wikipedia or vgchartz.

    he’s bullshitting. it shipped a million in two weeks. you can say the same thing in a number of ways, marketing guys always choose to say it the way Dille does.

    @9 Actually its a truth that this game sold in a few days for 1 million units. People hyped about it and had huge marketing campaign with slurpees and e.t.c..
    This game won’t sell for 1 million in two weeks.
    Its true.

    butt hurt fanboy? I dunno, you tell me, Geki. you won the award.

    anyway, originally I was just saying Dille’s quote is bollocks.

    Lol Daman youre using Vgcharts Gow 1 and 2 have sold combined 8m units most of that in NA, and i can believe Gow 3 did 1m in its first few days.

    If it had shipped 1m Dille would specify so. Hell even the Gow collection is been in the NA top 20 for the last 3 month. Gow 3 being the highest selling exclusive all depends on if Mgs 4 is still selling which i think it is.

    I was being sarcastic with wikipedia and vgchartz..

    “Dille would specify so”
    LOL, those are shipped numbers anyway. it’s just a bit misleading, because when saying ‘sold’ he makes it seem as if the game will keep on selling like that.

    Well it will have really long staying power as the Gow collection proves so it will keep selling for a while, plus the game has performed way better in Europe. You put these things together and he may be right you never know.

    Dille is the equivalent of PlaystationLifeStyle, judging by his past comments as well.

    like I said, you can say the same thing in a number of ways.

    Sony actually managed to sell a million PS3s?

    that stuff isn’t funny anymore, tea. if you want to stay on top of the charts, you need to change the direction, like Elpresador did.

    also, you shouldn’t copy Shatner’s humor that much, be more creative.
