There´s barely any competition until End of May with Detroit and Dark Souls Remastered.

God of War will sit in the throne for alot of weeks.
it should sit but i have not seen single player game staying on chart for long for what ever reason. Even MHW after showing such a strong debut and decent legs have gone in oblivion although there is not much competition and new releases.

People will either go digital or pick up from stores, we don’t get digital sales so that’s something.
It's very bad news for Amazon as a games retailer as it's pushing gamers to rival stores......or simply to buy digital. Couldn't happen at a worse time for Amazon as GoW's glowing reviews will convince many to go digital.

Yeah, but beside the reviews everything about Sea of Thieves we seen so far is quite positive.
So i don't see why their public speak about the game and the internal one should be different.

Also it's possible SoT will end up as the most successful new exclusive IP this generation.
I'll make a definitive statement about that after the first 2 major content updates dropped.
You don't have any insider information. It doesn't look like SoT will be the most successful new exclusive IP this generation on the Xbox One, and that obviously doesn't include games like Bloodborne, and Horizon Zero Dawn.

MHW is not a traditional single player game anyway, Far Cry 5 would be a better comparison.

So how big is UK launch of GoW going to be? Any record breaking numbers expected.? I don't think UK in particular and Europe in general is a strong area of GOW sales wise

There was a time when Europeans were blamed for GoW reboot if I remember correctly because we do not like hack and slash genre that much, haha.

It will do great. New GoW is a different beast.

UK God of War launch is the biggest in the series history
Same for the new Yakuza, too

God of War on PS4 is the fastest selling title in the franchise' history (boxed sales only).

It has sold over 35% more physical units in its first week than the previous best, 2010's God of War III.[...]

The result is that the game is easily this week's No.1 (matching the success of God of War II and III), knocking Far Cry 5 down to No.2. Ubisoft's game had been No.1 for three weeks solid, and remains the biggest launch of the year so far. Of course, Far Cry 5 is available on two platforms - PS4 and Xbox One.[...]

It isn't the only success this week. The new Yakuza title - Yakuza 6: Song of Life - arrived on PS4 and debuts at No.3. It is the biggest launch for a Yakuza game yet. It beat the previous best - 2017's Yakuza Kiwami - by 300 units.[...]
