In just three days time the newest God of War game sold over 3.1 million units worldwide, Sony today announced, making it the quickest-selling PlayStation 4 console exclusive. The game has been hailed as a near-perfect experience from countless critics and remains sits at a highly coveted 94 on Metacritic.

Apart from hardware sales, like most hardware-makers Sony puts strong emphasis on software sales on its PlayStation Network and in retail stores. It'd be interesting to see the digital/retail mix for God of War and I'm sure Sony is glad it's focus on singelplayer-driven games keeps paying off.

We've seen similar results with Horizon: Zero Dawn's launch. Guerrilla's huge open-world game went on to sell 7.6 million copies worldwide as of March, making it the "most successful PS4 exclusive to date."

Given God of War has sold almost half of Horizon's total sales in just three days we think this record will soon be broken.
