God of War enjoyed a semi-decent opening in Japan, moving roughly 46,000 copies and landing in second place. We weren’t expecting it to do crazy numbers, but we perhaps thought that it would get a little closer to 100,000. It was beaten out by the newly released Nintendo Labo Variety Kit, which isn’t a huge surprise.
Things remain dire on the hardware front, with PlayStation 4 numbers down in the dumps. Apparently, stock shortages may play a part here, and that seems probable given that the PS4 Pro actually outsold the standard model.
