From GamesIndustry.biz: With the introduction of the Platinum range to Europe it was always going to be interesting to see which already best-selling title would top the budget chart. The award goes to ... Uncharted.
im so happy more and more pple will see the grpahics.. uncharted is one of those games that was not a huge commercial success but it is one of the best games this gen.
I love those prince of persia action adventure type games.
Theyve reduced the price and added trophies so it would be pretty stupid not to buy this game right now if you havent already
i'm glad more people will play this fabulous game as well. it's worth $60 to begin with. all i can say is Uncharted 2 will sell a lot better now that more peeps are playing this first one.
I think it was a pretty good commercial success too. It has sold quite a bit. They are making a bundle with it now so it should do even better.
if someone knows share that this game was awesome and needs to be played by every PS3 owner
However this Platinum release might sell an extra 2 m. plus take 160 gb sales which will spur it to something like 6m by the end of the year Uncharted is topping the charts of every retailer in europe Play http://www.play.com/Games/G...
A real showcase to see what PS3 can deliver in experience, graphics and animation without using a middleware engine. Thank you Naughty Dog for being one of the most artistically talented devs out there.
I wonder how much this has to do with trophies? I got the game when it first came out last year and it's certainly one of my favourite games for the PS3, but I wonder how many people gave this gem a try because of trophies??
Its really an amazing achievement especially graphically at that time because it really just blew me away and the graphics were so good, that Uncharted to this day is still one of the best looking games on any console period. If u havent bought this game I am telling u now, u are really missing out on a great title.
http://www.gamersyde.com/le... some hd footage to get them going:)
But damn I was getting killed so easy on crushing mode, especially when u had to drive the water skii or the jet skii wit that chick, damn that was insanely hard on crushing mode. Still was worth playing through just finding everything in the game. :)
nice... the game is so close to 2mil which is good news (ignore what Nasim says, it's NOT 3mil)
I'm sure that stat comes form vgcharts too. Try about 2.4 million world wide scales as per sim and tvg. A real stat tracker.
oh... nice can you give me a link for this stat tracker please? man i remember when people complained about Uncharted's sales, but now- it seems the game is well on its way to 3mil and maybe 4mil lifetime
Whoo-hoo! This game is AWEEEEEEEEESOME!
Those EU Platinum Titles are so much better than the NA greatest hits. There is so much more. Damn, you lucky Europeans.... BY JOVE, Buzz! Quiz TV and Singstar Volume 2 are already on that list!!! They are not even out in NA. DAMN,DAMN,DAMN,CURSE YOU.
I was foolish enough to buy this game. Deserves a rent. Dont get me wrong though, the 8 hours i did spend with it was awesome
Yeah i beat gears of war on PC in 5 hours.If i owned a 360 it wouldnt even be worth the gas it would cost to go to the videostore and rent it.
Not as aweeeeeeeesome as tomb raider underworld which graphically puts uncharted to shame
mmmmmm what?! look for videos or screens of both games, put your glasses and compare them again because i think you're plain wrong or haven't seen anything about uncharted ever! Uncharted it's a game that has one of the most beautiful graphics this gen. Come on PP (or may i say zerodin?) you know you want to play this game so go buy a PS3 already and quit the trolling. If you were a good troll i wouldn't say that but your comments suck.
pp your a dumb f*ck i even know HARDCORE tomb raider fans who agree it doesnt look as good and even if it did the new tomb raider will come out almost 2 years later, its called common sense and logic you silly f*cker try learn it you havnt even played uncharted its AMAZING
Best Game EVER!!!!
Well, for a good long while it was the best ps3 game ever.. until mgs4 was released.
@ okcomputer but still the best console game in therms of graphic
Stop trying so hard xbots!! First of all the games runs approx. 10 to 11 hours. If you can finish it in 8 hours then you prob played it on easy mode just running through it, which would make you an idiot. Pretty much all reviews peg this game at 11 hours so you=fail! Second for pp, why do you even try. How the hell do you know how awesome tomb raider underworld is? You played it already? You're a joke, the fact is that Uncharted still is one of, if not the best looking game on either of the consoles this gen so you=fail! Lets wait until we play tombraider before talking. BTW what ever happened to Killzone 2 argument that graphics aren't everything? Uncharted's gameplay is one of the best out there also so go troll somewhere else!
10-11 hours? Such lies, it personally took me 9 hours on the hardest difficulty. And i spent alot of time looking at the graphics(Uncharted is better looking than any game on the 360 might I add) Edit: Prove it? Its 8 hours long, keep lying to yourself that it isnt I then completed it on crushing mode afterwards at the same time. Why would I want to collect all the treasures? They make the game no more fun. I sold the game ages ago so I havent tried the trophies. P.S i sell most of my games, its not just this one
Then post a video then. If you're so sure you beat the game in eight hours, then I challenge you to post videos of it. I can assure you that Uncharted has excellent replay value. Did you beat all the hard modes? Did you get all the trophies? Did you get every single piece of treasure? Don't kid yourself.
I don't have to prove it. I just play it for the 3rd time after trophies came out and I must say it was the best run through of the three so far. I never had a better time looking for treasures. the entire play time was approx 11:30 hours. I don't have to defend this game as anyone who has played it will agree it is one of if not the best game this gen so far. I do agree with you that uncharted is better looking than any 360 game so far. I just don't see how you run through the game so fast... you must really be flying through it. Edit: Dude I am not lying I just went through it again and I found like 56 of the 61 treasures (including the strange hidden relic) and got about 51% of all trophies and it took me 11:30 hours. you should by it again and play it for the trophies. it really is more fun getting them! @ Liar below: What is that link for?
I didnt fly through at all, I checked out the graphics alot and looked at how great the textures were and stuff. I also played on the highest difficulty available on the first run through. The game isnt over 10 hours long on the 1st playthrough, stop lying FFS, I went through every nook and cranny. You're lying, no doubt about it. Harry190: Uncharted on Crushing isnt that hard, there are just some parts that are SO hard. mainly the last level, damn i died so many times at that part Btw thx for agreeing that this game isnt above 10 hours long
it under 5 hours on hard. But you need practice to achieve that. I have abandoned my quest to complete it on crushing though. (Skipping cut-scenes and all) First time it took me around 8-9 hours but it felt entirely right since the game is a thrill ride. If it were any longer, it would have become repetitive.
Wow! good link Liar!! not only does it prove that it's a AAA game. But it proves that you've been a pathetic troll for almost a year now. Kudos to you,scumbag.
Is your avatar purple haze (not to be confused with Haze the game)?
Nope..Not even close :P Its a cloud formation over a rainbow.
omg, US needs Uncharted as a platinum hit
playing Uncharted puts a smile on my face. controlling Drake through the woods is just breathtaking. one of the best experiences ever for me.
Call of Duty 4: confirmed! in all seriousness, i think it's the combination of the new low price and the Trophy support that is spurring sales of Uncharted. of course, it happens to be the best game i played last year (along with Bioshock), so i'm glad it's getting it's due. if these increased sales are significant, i expect some of last years titles that DIDN'T get an update patch for Trophies to potentially see that patch. i doubt Activision would pass up a chance to sell even MORE copies of Call of Duty 4, especially if it's something as cheap as a Trophy patch (sure, it would take resources and manpower to do this, but if the game sold an additional million or two units, that'd cover that expense real quick).
I think you're reading too much into the trophy thing. My guess would be the boost in sales comes from the budget price and not the trophy add on. Uncharted is an amazing game also, for me it was also right up there as a second to only bioshock for my goty 2007. Most gamers don't buy 360 games just for achievements though, so I don't think trophies would be any different. And for cod4, the achievements were pretty lame anyway and the trophies would most likely just be for the same things. Since infinity ward decided to make them all single player only, there aren't any fun online achievements like with halo3, and while some of the single player ones are good, they're hardly worth a second play through just to get, especially with cod4's ridiculously good multiplayer.
but when the games that have been patched for Trophy support see a boost in sales, you have to put two and two together. Uncharted IS an amazing game. and Trophies haven't made the game any more amazing than it already is. i beat the game 6 times BEFORE the Trophy patch, and i've beaten it once since the patch. it's just good gaming fun. but there is no denying that a lot of people love Trophies and Achievements. i think they're ok in that they got me to play a game i had put on the shelf for a bit again. but they don't really add anything to the game for me, personally. Uncharted was selling well before the Trophy patch, and we'll see how it sells after the Trophy patch, but i think it's a combination of the new low price and the Trophy patch that are getting people to pick it up. i'd split it 90% new price, 10% Trophy patch. doesn't matter how lame the Achievements were in COD4, some people will rush out and get it just to raise their gamer level for their PSN. from what i hear, COD4's single player isn't too shabby. a little short, so another go round probably wouldn't be out of the question. i personally don't care for COD4, but i can appreciate it's quality, and it's online is certainly fantastic. don't underestimate people's desire for frivolous and ultimately unimportant things. Trophies/Achievements, won't turn a game into a massive hit, but i'm sure there are people that don't own either Uncharted, or COD4, that would pick them up because of Trophies.
The game is incredible, glad it's still doing well.
this game is AMAZING one of the best games out this gen graphics wise gameplay wise story wise
This game is awesome and deserves all the sales it gets. Hopefully it will be introduced in the greatest hits collection in NA soon. I've beaten this game about 5 times already. One more time in crushing to get all the trophies. Game is kick ass and one of the best looking on ANY system period.
Having a PS3 and not having Uncharted is like getting married and not having sex. It just isn't right.
Awesome title, awesome game
