God of War Ragnarok has officially become Sony's fastest-selling first-party PlayStation title, shifting a staggering 5.1 million copies within its first week on sale. It beats The Last of Us: Part II, which previously held the record of fastest-selling PlayStation game, selling 4 million copies in the space of just three days.

2018's God of War managed to sell 3.1 million copies within three days, although, Ragnarok's numbers cover the game on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, and cover sales from the game's release on 9th November to 13th November. Despite its commercial success, however, developer Santa Monica Studio claims it has no plans for post-launch DLC.

As far as strong starts go, 5.1 million units in less than a week is pretty impressive, seeing God of War Ragnarok dominating the charts. No doubt it'll continue to do so in the run up to Christmas. God of War Ragnarok is available for PS5 and PS4 now, and you can take a look at a comparison video of the game running on each here.

  • Sweet. Waiting for it on PS+.
  • It literally is way worse than the first one.
    Also these sales are including the game being sold with the consoles which I found one for S/O so they are much easier to find now. Going to sell his copy since we already own it and a little less than retail to make something back.
  • @2 Way worse than the first one? Think you’ve been playing a different game lol
  • Game is overrated AF
  • Yawn. Over rated much
  • Bunch of haters in the comments. This game is gorgeous and overall amazing! Typical people hating it, waiting for the hype to die down just to secretly pick it up and play it, love it, but still tell everyone it’s ehh..
  • Funny how all the haters like usual do not give a single argument, just senseless screaming like children.
