Although it was supposed to god of war ragnarok It would be a great success for PlayStation to close out 2022, it turns out that the game has done better than expected. Since its first release in 1994, PlayStation has had several successful franchises. The Last of Us, Uncharted, Ratchet & Clank, and Gran Turismo are just a few of the many great properties to come out of PlayStation. And while these franchises are all great in their own right, none of them have sold a game as well at launch as god of war ragnarok.

Announced today on social media, PlayStation confirmed that god of war ragnarok It has become the biggest game in the history of the video game brand. Total, ragnarok it sold 5.1 million copies in its first week alone, making it the best-selling game at launch of any God of War title. However, outside of the God of War series, PlayStation also revealed that ragnarok it is the best-selling first-party game ever published by PlayStation. In short, the highly anticipated sequel has been nothing short of a monumental success for those at Sony and developer Santa Monica Studio.

Although it is a bit amazing to see how well god of war ragnarok has done, the game had one major thing going for it compared to several previous PlayStation releases. Specifically, ragnarok it had the advantage of releasing on both PS5 and PS4, meaning it naturally had a larger number of users who could buy the game. For the most part, Sony has released many of its exclusives on individual platforms over the years, which somewhat limits its ability to sell in large numbers. And while this is surely not the only reason why ragnarok he has done so well that it definitely contributes a lot to his meteoric rise.
