A listing of first day sales data in Japan for various games has been released, which includes debut figures for Uncharted 2.
All things considered, Uncharted 2 did very well. Great sell-through rate, too.
is this the best debut for a western game ever? Probably not, but not bad, shows that the Japs have some good taste after all.
Not quite the 300,000+ we see with jrpg's there, but I think this is about as much of the western culture as you will ever see enter into Japan. Does anyone know the first day sales for U2 outside of Japan yet?
47K for uncharted 2 :0 That's frekin amazing! Can't wait to buy it.
wow and that japan and they dont really in to shooters cant wait to see what this game dose in US na EU well this proves one thing japanese gamers really got a good taste when it comes to games
with 1st day sales of 47k in Japan is very impressive, considering how "underwhelming" it is. What a Paradox.
"What a Paradox." lol 47k is amazing considering it's terrible. My only favorite color is red except when it's blue. The Kingslayer "Be a gamer, not a hater." These were all examples of paradoxs.
The first Uncharted sold 16.5k in the first week in Japan. 47k is amazing. It's also more than the first week in the US for the first one (32k).
Uncharted 2 actually topped the chart with its first day sales.
This is actually very good, people on Neogaf were saying they don't even expect Uncharted 2 to get 80K lifetime sales in Japan, because the first one sold 16k in the first week.
Wow that's not bad, I expected around 40K, and it's nice to see a game do decent in Japan, now U2 needs to stay around 40K for a few more weeks if it can.
Also worth noting that this is first day sales, not first week sales, so it could end up being a lot more, although 70% of the shipment was sold, so probably not much more this week.
This is a real proof that the games is AWESOME
At least part of these sales have to be due to the AMAZING box art Japan received for the game.
Are you guys "playing sales" right now?
"Are you guys "playing sales" right now? " No, playing sales would be "HA! Uncharted 2 sucks cause it only sold 47,000 while Halo 3 has sold 10 million! Thus Halo 3 is clearly the better game!" -Average 360 fanboy
All you had to say was 'double standard'.
Well hello there Elisha Cuthbert. What brings you to a place like N4G? P.S: Marry me <3
its like every comment you make has a fanboyish slant to it Bzone24. If you dislike when ps3 fanboys go the "playing sales route" then why do the same? Kinda typical for the average fanboy to always try and ignore one side while being critical of the other. You're just as bad as ps3 fanboys
thats crap i was expecting in the 100,000 at least
Playing sales would be saying: HA! Uncharted 2 got 1/3 of Halo 3's LIFETIME sales in ONE day in Japan but people here are saying how great it is for a western game to sell that much in Japan
"Kinda typical for the average fanboy to always try and ignore one side while being critical of the other. You're just as bad as ps3 fanboys " lol. And you are ignoring one side also and being critical of the other too. So basically you are calling me hypocritical while being a hypocrite yourself.
they are only remarking that for a western shooter, it's selling well in japan. it's not like they are saying that it's selling better than another game. I see no double standard here. maybe it's you who's hoping to see one.
actually if you were to check my comment history, i call fanboys out if i happen to be looking at an article, no matter what side of the fence they lie on. I didnt say you were wrong and they are right, i said why join there ranks if it bothers you so much? I call out fanboys where i see em, you included But normally, i stay out of things that can lead to flaming and fanboy wars, just stick to the articles that deal with my current game list. Carry on fanboy
Impressive! Considering it's Japan and the game isn't a JRPG.
I am impressed. It probably wont sell much more considering how games sell in Japan, but this is not a bad launch for a western game.
at that rate, it'll sell 1.5 million copies in Japan in 1 month. kudos to Naughty Dog
This game is better than a BABOON'S mom...AHAHAHAHAAHHA
thats pretty awesome for uncharted. and thats just the first day.
indeed. Hope it sells more.
By the way, as a huge Okami fan, I also have to say that I'm pleased with Okami Wii's performance in Japan. Hopefully the sales of that title will be consistent and then I obviously wish the same success for Okamiden.
I want to see a next gen Okami. If I don't get that I am not satisfied. This portable Okami crap pisses me off.
it will be interesting to see next week's media Create weekly sales figures to see if this game pushed consoles in japan this week.
Uncharted 2 keeps kickin' Ass all around. :) such a marvelous game.
U2 is the best selling game on that list
Great seeing my favourite PS3 game getting the sales it deserves!
Oh crap, Beatmania IIDX 16 is out. :D
xbox 360, face palm
UC2 is SICKK!
If you guys want to know the real reason it sold so much, just look at what Naught Dog had to alter. (Ratchet and Clank inside joke) [IMG] http://i34.tinypic.com/2hxl...
Took me a good 2 minutes to find Uncharted 2 on that list. I, never in a million years thought I would see it at number 1, not in Japan. WOW!
Great sales =) still, even if it didn't sell, it's still one of teh best games ever
great job! Japanese are definitely loving PS3!
UC2 Would be sick if i'd received my pre-order, still not got it, grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
Wow great first day for Drake! In Japan that is impressive, good job Naughty Dog.
if you dont have it go get it. my daugther is playing this game. seriously people have asked what movie are you watching
that's good for japan cuz they don't like shoters or western game
Damn! UC2 did great considering that it's Japan.
U2 is not a shooter really but more like an action/adventure game which the japanese love.
A lot of you folks fail to realize that the Japanese love very high quality games like U2 and no matter what the genre is. It all comes hand in hand,Sony=very good quality.
47,000 compared to 7,000 that Uncharted 1 sold on it's first day. Just shows how much the PS3 has turned it around.
Do the Japanese not buy many games anymore? While Uncharted 2 was #1 it only sold 47,000. That seems pretty low.
What a great way to kick off Sony's big game line-up (GOW3, GT5, etc.). How will it sell in America?
Uncharted2 is no doubt one of the best games made to date. I wonder how a game like Demon's Souls would do in Japan because of its genre. I will have to order the game since it is sold out locally(everywhere). A big Friday "What's up" to all gamers out there. Props to 360 fans who open mindedly stepped over to check out this great game, and an ounce of encouragement to PS3 fans willing to check out great 360 games that will be coming up in the near future.
best game i ever had the privlage to play.should have got a 10
nice sold pretty well
BTW i think i know why it managed to push that much http://www.youtube.com/watc... I LOLED through the whole thing, not to mention that commercial was possibly one of the fastest action packed Commercial i've ever seen, LOL
It DESTROYED everything on that chart.... and that's just Japan? On day one?
This is famitsu,i trust media create mo3e but they usually are about the same. This is pretty dam good especially for 1 day,in 1 week it may reach nearly 100k. I was surprised that the Japanese like this western game. Anyone got the Uncharted 1 japan numbers?
UC 2 is on a roll!
