I think it was before the inevitable "Took it long enough, Halo sold 5 billion copies in 20 minutes" which we all know is gonna happen.

But yeah Uncharted 2 ftw.

Edit: LOL, some retarded troll already posted a comment like that in the open zone.

Isn't it sad that the best games out there get "okey" sales, and the overhyped dissapointments get all the sales. =/

I don't have a PS3 but this game deserves these sales.
Dread  +   1998d ago
pennywise it seems that u r the one playing sales.

but anyways, UC2 is going to win GOTY regardless of all the whinning from the sony fans.. so just relax.

you dont have to hate so much on MW2 to make your point. and by the way, MW2 is awsome as well.

I will be enjoying both games..

o and MW2 works just fine on my 360, i hope they fix the online problems for the playstation 3 soon.

Of course the sales game is gonna start, its an article about sales.
I just got uc2 I have played about an hour of it. Awesome game, deserves every accolade it has gotten. I don't know why more poeple haven't bought it yet. Its flippin awesome. It is sad that a game like this doesn't sell more than a game like mw2. Not to take anything away from mw2 its great as well, but this is a masterpiece. I just hope that when uc3 comes out that people will flock to it. Naughty dog deserves every penny it makes off of this game.

"While you guys are playing sales, I will be playing UC2 online."

And yet your the 1st person to mention sales lol. With all the hype this game recieved I'm sure it surpassed 3 million or if not then that's sad gamers didn't pick it up. UC2 makes for the perfect christmas gift so after the holidays NPD will look pretty good for the game.

edit below lol: And how in the heck is my comment sad? Did I ever say the game was bad or not amazing? What's sad is how defensive your acting over a comment made about UC2. Grow up already

you do realise that his comment was directed at the PS3 owners who bought MW2 over uncharted 2 so please take you're trolling somewhere else.

on the topic this is truly an amazing game and more than deserves every sale
Pennywise  +   1998d ago
Wow... call of the attack dogs! My comment was not the first to mention sales. The article is ABOUT SALES >< Kind of overzealous there attacking me.

My point was UC2 deserves more sales than MW2. Shame on all PS3 owners who chose MW2 over UC2. I get it is all personal taste, but you have to be an odd individual NOT to love UC2.

Oh really?, Are you referring to UC2 as the best game and MW2 as the overhyped dissapointment?.....lmfao, Say's who? Oh thats right, so say's you and the rest of the SDF. UC2 is a great game, MW2 is just a better game and myself along with the other 6+ mil more who chose to buy MW2 are laughing at your "I'm bitter because UC2 didn't sell as much as MW2" BS claim.

JOY is sounding more and more bitter as he sits with his one bubble. Frankly, the only people who could justify giving MW2 a 10 are the people who haven't played Ucharted 2 yet.

U2 raises the bar on every level. What was once "great" is now "good", and Uncharted 2 sits at the top of the mountain.

You guys may not want to hear this....
ALOT of people bought the PS3 to use primarily as a BluRay player. Sure, they may buy a game here or there, but I wouldn't classify them as gamers for the most part. I have turned so many people on to the fact that the PS3 was the best BluRay player, only recently has there been better options, but the PS3 is still up there. These people don't know alot about games... It's up to the hardcore, you guys, to suggest which games are good. A person just asked me why can't she buy Halo on her PS3, She then barked at me about telling her to get a PS3 and not a 360... I calmed her down by telling her that I suggested the PS3 because she was primarily a movie watcher, I told her to go and get Uncharted 2 and that if she wants to play Halo, she can always come over to my house... yeah, she's HOT, and if Halo can get me laid, then I will declare it as the best game EVER... Gettin' Laid FTW!!

In my part of the world (New Zealand) I have yet to play play an "Optimal" game and have only played a "close" game several times. Its disappointing how well reviewed the multiplayer is and yet so few seem to play it.

I don't think that's true.
The fact that the best sellers on both consoles are the same multi plats (COD & GTA)points to the same demographic. Although it's true that sales don't mean quality you can't throw the baby out with the bathwater. Sales data is still important.


I hate when people bring up the argument of wii sports in the sales=quality argument. I don't think many people bought a wii w/out getting wii sports.

Just out of curiosity.
how far does your gaming history go back? I am not disagreeing with you, I just know I have played too many great games over the course of history to be able to single out just one. I'll never forget the day I was able to convince my parents to get us a Nintendo...I was so locked in to Mario that I beat it the first day.
slave2Dcontroller  +   1998d ago
^ np, happy to answer.
Atari 2600. Yes. I have been through many era's of gaming nes, snes, sega masters, genesis yada yada. Before Uncharted2, my #1 All-Time game was Zelda; A Link To The Past. Thats been bumped down to #2.

Man! are you right on about Mario though. Getting my NES and playing Mario Bros was a Magical Moment. Even better was when I got my SNES and pack-in Zelda;ALTTP(for the younger guys- what you refer to as bundles now, we referred to as pack-ins back then LOL), I stayed up for days playing that game. True Story. I'm 33 but I remember being around 9 or 10 years old, I had this dream that I was playing a game that almost looked like it was real. Playing Uncharted and Uncharted2 always reminds of that dream I had 20 some odd years ago.

I just never thought that I would be able to see it come into fruition. Who wouldve thought that I would be running around in an ice cave with some fool named Tenzin who doesnt speak English but we understand eachother just fine. Technology is an amaaaazing thing. So are dreams... apparently ;)

Again. I raise my glass to Naughty Dog.

I will be honest, I picked up the MW2 cause I really did like the MP of MW1 and WaW. HOLY CRAP IT SUCKS. After playing UC2 I cannot believe how bad it looks!

MW2 sold 4.8 jigawatts on day one. If only people realized the beauty that is UC2 (and 1). The bar has been set for real gamers in terms of gameplay, graphics, story and voice acting.

Off Topic: R/C ToD is gameflyed and will be here tomorrow!

The Wood  +   1998d ago
dont be concerned
on the contrary, Uncharted games dont need to hit cod numbers for them to be a success or warrant a sequel. The 1st one has proved this plus not everybody loves 3rd person shooters like they love 1st person shooters. At least we know naughty dog worked extremely hard for every single sale. people didn't buy it in their droves off the name alone. ND had to push hard which is more than can be said of IW with mw2.. Not dismissing mw2 as im having a great time with it its just u2 pushed hard and mw2 just maintained.

would have looked better considering they left the COD:WaW to Treyarch, and took the time to make MW2. I am not dissapointed with my UC2, but there are too many things wrong with MW2 to give it such acclaim.
