If you own a copy of the new God of War, then you’ll understand why it’s the fastest selling PlayStation 4 game ever. If you don’t own the game, here’s a good reason to go pick it up: 3.1 million units were sold in just three days, according to Sony.

If you want to compare this to other major releases, Uncharted 4, which is currently the highest-selling game on the PS4, sold a respectable 2.7 million units in its first week of release.

It makes a lot of sense that God of War is crushing it. I have a handful of friends who can’t stop playing it. And it’s not just them either. Jonathon Dornbush of IGN writes in his review:

I expected great action from God of War, and it delivers that handily. But I didn’t expect it to be a thrilling journey in which every aspect of it complements the others to form what is nothing short of a masterpiece.

Peter Brown of GameSpot writes:

In many ways God of War is what the series has always been. It’s a spectacular action game with epic set pieces, big-budget production values, and hard-hitting combat that grows more feverish and impressive as you progress. What may surprise you is how mature its storytelling has become.

Leon Hurley of GamesRadar+ closes out his review with:

One of PlayStation’s finest moments, Kratos has been reimagined for a new audience while keeping the best bits of what originally made him great.

Metacritic, which is a site that aggregates game reviews from the leading critics from around gaming industry has God of War listed at a 94, which is nearly a perfect rating. I think this alone tells you why it’s PS4’s fastest selling game ever. Good review numbers like this, especially in the gaming world, are extremely hard to come by.
