By Alan Ng - Mar 20, 2010

We have some staggering sales results from PS3 exclusive God of War III to bring you now, as it has been reported that the game has managed to pull in $33 million on day one alone. Mind blowing.

As reported from Playstation Lifestyle, day one figures have already been compiled by the guys over at Gamasutra. They have stated that gamers in the US had 450,000 copies of GoW III reserved via pre-order, with tons more coming in from the likes of GameStop and other retailers.

In total, the game managed to shift 550,000 copies of the game in the US alone, on just day one – which is well over $33 million if the retail price is $59.99 per copy.

Did you expect the game to do so well on day one? Just wait until first week sales are published – then we will ‘really’ know what we are dealing with here.

Let us know your thoughts on this, we’ll bring you an update soon.

    Looks like PS3 will take GOTY for two years running then! And we’ve not even finished with exclusives yet. Lots to come.

    Does kinda make me laugh though at the screaming hordes who had the PS3 dead after year one.

    The PS3 does have some way to go. I think Home is improving and PSN is beginning to shine with lots of content videos and music. And if you’ve got a PS3 and not tried VidZone, you’re missing out. 🙂

      LOL sorry waldo but ps3 has no chance in 2010, the only game they had running for GOTY was god of war 3.. unfortunatly it only has an overall average of 93%.. which is pathetic compared to mass effect 2's 97%… and splinterellconviction,alan wake, fable 3 or halo reach isnt even out yet
