God of War, the expected exclusive of Santa Monica Studios for PlayStation 4, debuted a few hours ago. If you have been waiting to play the game, surely you know that there are many people in various parts of the world who are excited about its arrival. This is why an analyst believes that it will become the best debut of an exclusive for Sony’s current generation console.
Mat Piscatella of NPD Group commented that he trusts that God of War will be “the biggest exclusive debut on the PS4.” That is, he expects its initial sales to be higher than titles like Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, The Last Guardian, and Bloodborne. That said, he did not specify if he only believes that it will surpass the already available titles or if it will be the best premiere of the platform’s entire history.
Later he mentioned that the only doubt that remains is how big is the potential of a game like God of War, which is a title for 1 player, without multiplayer and that lacks elements of the game as a service. That said, the good reviews it received surely made the game will become a new point of reference.
“My confidence is high that God of War will be the biggest exclusive debut on the PS4. Only question I have left is how high is the sky for a primarily story driven, non service game. Have not seen a game like this one, this will be the benchmark,” said the analyst.
