God Of War Ragnarok Sells Over Ninety Thousand Physical Copies In Spain Alone

The PlayStation exclusive continues to amaze us with crazy numbers worldwide.

With 55,000 copies sold on the PlayStation 5 and 35,000 copies sold on the PlayStation 4, God of War Ragnarok launched a total of 90,000 physical sales in Spain alone for Week 45 of 2022, from November 7–13, not including the downloads in this figure.

The massive results for the PlayStation-exclusive title in the Spanish market alone have once again astonished us with the game’s overall success patterns.


MAJOR TAKEAWAYS: 

  • A recent Spanish report suggested God Of War Ragnarok sold 90k physical copies within just the first week of launch.
  • Stats put GoW Ragnarok at top of week 45 sales in Spain.
  • The title beat other PlayStation exclusives and the rest of the games with a massive gap.
  • Nevertheless, Playstation 5 sales still suffered despite the game’s tremendous launch in the region.

These incredible numbers put it well ahead of not only the 2018 God of War (67,000 PS4 sales) but also the majority of previous PlayStation exclusives. Only The Last of Us Part 2 is equal on the PS4 generation with 90,000 sales.

It’s interesting to note that God of War only sold 67k physical copies in 2018, despite the physical sales market being significantly stronger and the PS4 has been available for four and a half years.

After two years in a considerably less solid sales market, Ragnarok sold 55,000 copies on the PS5 only. Amazing outcomes for the game.

The best exclusive release in Sony’s current generation’s two years of existence, despite the fact that, once again, it is unclear how many PlayStation 4 users actually wanted to play it on a console that they have not yet been able to purchase.

Let’s just state that because God of War Ragnarok was launched on a Wednesday as opposed to the Friday for most other PlayStation Studios games, it had two more days.

The other notable release of the week was Sonic Frontiers, which stands out on the Nintendo Switch with more than 7,000 copies and distributes a similar number across the PS5, PS4, and Xbox Series for an impressive overall result.

FIFA and Call of Duty are starting to slow down, and among the other releases, Tactics Ogre: Reborn‘s Switch version’s more than 4,000 units sales stand out.

As taken from the sales expert Spanish website GameReactor, the top 10 sales for week 45, November 7–13, are listed below:

  1. God of War: Ragnarök (PS5): 55,000 
  2. God of War: Ragnarök (PS4): 35,000 
  3. Sonic Frontiers (Switch): 7,000 
  4. FIFA 23 (PS4):
  5. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II (PS4)
  6. Tactics Ogre: Reborn (Switch): 4,000 
  7. Sonic Frontiers (PS5)
  8. FIFA 23: Legacy Edition (Switch)
  9. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II (PS5)
  10. Sonic Frontiers (PS4)

Santa Monica Studio’s game should have come out when there was a tonne of PS5 stock available, which is what happened in the UK, where the platform enjoyed its greatest week so far this year.

The situation is different in Spain, where estimates have the number of PS5s sold there at around 7,000, a total that is not even higher than Switch sales during the same week.

Recall that God of War Ragnarok launched with 145,000 sales in the UK (only Pokémon Scarlet/Purple and FIFA 23 performed higher this year), as well as 40,000 sales in Japan (still no downloads). God of War Ragnarok becomes one of the most successful PlayStation titles ever in history with 90,000 physical sales in Spain alone.
