Sony Corp. this week said the title Uncharted 2: Among Thieves for the Playstation 3 has sold 1 million units at U.S. retail to date according to internal figures.
This is better news than console sales, I hope more people buy this.
Game of the year http://www.ironstarmovement...
Yep! and since ND said they have exceeded their target sales numbers for UC2, that means UC3 is a given. Not to mention the ps3's install base will be twice as big by then so more people will buy UC3 thus resulting in more games. It's like a never ending cycle. Frankly i wouldn't mind since it's Uncharted franchise we are talking about.
just barely broke 1mil in the US? wow weren't there another 1.3 million ps3's sold in the US last month? What the heck are PS owners buying if they can't be bothered to buy the GOTY?
Great Sales and Amazing quality.
Most likely Modern Warfare 2. People have different tastes. Uncharted doesn't cater to an audience as big as Modern Warfare 2. But Gran Turismo does. ^_~ Also take note that this is only the US, where there are more than double the amount of 360s than PS3s. Sales =/= quality Quality =/= sales But! evrfighter = trolling PS3 news 24/7
Just making my daily rounds. But I'm not as bad as some ps3 fanboy extremists here where the top 10 comments of a 360 article is ps3 fanboy's on damage control.
Great numbers, more people really need to buy this Awesome GOTY09 Game
best 3rd person action game ever online on a free network so lets go already i want some noobs ta pound. XD
Too many great PS3 games!!!
yer c'mon, best console game ever! your ps3 deserves to feel this game inside it! (sounds wrong....)
Yea, its fun to hear my PS3 growl when I put Uncharted 2 in it ;) Edit: And the disagree fairy has arrived haha
...Sony and its hardworked developers are bringing us the best franchises and games posible this generation and yet we PS3 fans pay them buying Modern Warfare 2 like crazy and forgeting the GAME OF THE YEAR. This game deserves more. Half of what MW2 has sold amongst PS3 gamers would be more respectfull to this game. Again this industry has fall to the popularyty instead of the quality. I like that even most of the PS3 fans posting here havent even bougth the game, a shame beacuse they use it to defend the PS3 against anything and yet they even havent played it. ITS A SHAME FOR ME AS AN OLD GAMER. The same FPS with nothing of originality besides the campfest and the number 30th plumber game sold like crazy and yet this the GOTY only manages to sold 1 million after months of its release. Same happened with KILLZONE 2. If I were Sony I would be really mad because they are trying their best to keep this industry fresh and dont tried to explote the consummer with more of the same like MS and NINTENDO and look what they got. PEACE AND GAMING!!
I'm one of those million...And I feel good to have experienced a new Legend!...Oh ya ND wheres #3 [email protected] above...I just started MW2...Thrilling but ugly! Uh huh you heard me!
One of the best games this generation deserves great sales to compliment it.
An instant classic.
UC2 would have sold 15+ mil lifetime along with MGS4, etc. I just don't get it.
This press release is interesting, they seem very serious about 3D and it looks like they will market it as a selling point along the motion controller. No doubt they also have system sellers between God of War 3, GT5, and if Agent comes out this year, that will be big. Also, congrats to Uncharted 2, thats my favorite game this generation!
Full 1:1 3d motion tracking combined with full 3D gaming is going to lead us somewhere special. Personally Id like a 3D XMB. Might have to wait until next then for that though :(
Uncharted 2 is a gaming experience that will never be surpassed... until Uncharted 3 of course :)
Whoa whoa, lets wait till God of War 3 comes before we make judgment
and after God of War 3 comes Agent , The Last Guardian , Gran Turismo 5 and im pretty sure Killzone 3 will come out first before Uncharted 3 and other games so as a playstation gamer im hoping Uncharted 2 gets surpass soon on the console even though the game is my favorite action/adventure of all time and second best on the system , as a long time God of War fan im really anticipating God of War 3 WAY more than i was anticipating Uncharted 2 so lets see how everything turns out before making bold statements
In 3 months it has reached a milestone where only MGS4 and Resistance 1 has been able to reach in their lifetimes. So N/A 1 million group belong to Uncharted 2, MGS4, and Resistance.
have you ever heard about a little game called Motorstorm ? GT5 prologue?
Motorstorm was a launch title. Besides, Motorstorm: PR was a much better game and it did poor in sales charts.
What are you talking about lifetime sales for now?? I can walk into GameStop and buy a new copy of MGS4 or Resistance 1 if I wanted to right now.
@Meus -- You can't hang the sales of a fantastic product on idiot consumers. They're retarded. They don't know what's good and what's not good... Motorstorm PR sold nearly 1 million worldwide. That's a shame it couldn't break a million but when you put faith in the consumers hands you walk away let down. Motorstorm PR is a brilliant game. It's beautiful. It's tight and responsive and absolutley the best arcade racer ever made. Just because it didn't sell doesn't mean it's not good... It just means people are uninformed puppets that need to buy a clue before they think about buying a game or system. I play Motorstorm PR to this day. In fact I'm going to play it tonight I think. Edit to below -- Then VG chartz stopped tracking the numbers for it. They have it at a little over 800,000.
http://www.worldwidestudios... , you know a little link from a little game, READ IT , Motorstorm Pacific Rift reached 1 million in just 6 weeks after released EDIT : at Skeptical i dont know if you are talking to me if you are indeed i was just trying to add more games to the Estranged's List , i mean games that have sold more than 3 millions ( MGS4 , Motorstorm , Resistance Fall of Man , Gran Turismo 5 Prologue and others ) that was all
R1, R2, Kz2, Infamous, LBP, MGS4, R:TOD, GT5:P, Motorstorm, and U2 have all sold more than 1M.. so wats ur point again?
Where's Jason360? According to him only 5 people bought Uncharted 2 :)
It's a good game, too bad only 5 people bought it.
Then those 5 people, one being me :), are surely having the time of their lives with it
There he is!
As one of the five, I'm very happy with it. That's still enough for a good round of co-op. Shame we can't get even teams for competative though.
Oh I'm sorry I stand corrected, 6 people bought it.
This is in addition to the 2.9 million it sold I'm assuming. Either way yes Uncharted 2 deserves it, like I said when it makes it to 7million sold units I'll be properly happy. But now, I'm super happy for it.
Piece of advice. Don't come to N4G to read how much games have sold. People will pull all kinds of numbers out of the blue based on their thinking of how much it DESERVES to sell. This isn't the first time I've heard people claiming the game has sold millions.
Lol lol lol. Buddy come on. no way is this game at 4 million, no way!
i can assure you, like all PS3 games, it has long legs and will easily reach 5 mil, possibly 6 mil by the time U3 comes out =)
This game is great!! No wonder it got all the awards. Best game I played last year!
Every Ps3 owner should buy Resistance Resistance 2 MotorStorm Motorstorm PR Little Big Planet Uncharted Uncharted 2 Infamous MGS4 Folklore Hotshots golf four MLB 2010 Killzone 2 & tons of exclusive PSN content... Sadly, Ps3 owners are idiots and don't know a good thing when they are faced with it. Let's see, run of the mill and boring Modern Warefare 2 or an intense movie like experience, a once in a life time experience at that, Killzone 2? They pick Modern Ware fare 2. That's how intelligent the average consumer is.
Good thing for me I got all of them besides the Golf and Baseball game. Check: http://public.blu.livefiles... @below.....Manager at an engraving store ;)
^^^ wat do you work as, cause you got almost the whole ps3 library!!
may i add other ps3 exclusives that i have and i believe they are among the best the system can offer? ok here i go Warhawk Wipeout HD Heavenly Sword Demons Souls Valkyria Chronicles Ratchet and Clank Future series Pixeljunk Monsters and Shooter Siren Blood Curse God of War Collection Flower Fat Princess
and at the idiot calling people idiots: nah PS3 owners are broke thats all xD too much choice but...you wouldn't know what that is would you!? Choice...
Wow. That is a lot of PS3 games. I thought I couldn't be beat with about 100 PS3 games. But you my friend got me beat by about 30 games. Who says PS3 owners don't buy games? LOL.
you have alot of games! you should post that pic everytime a xbox fan says ps3 owners don't buy games lol
lol.. what flop. - base install of 32 m of ps3 world and still only 1 m NA *facepalm* -gamne most hyped of the year -best reviews in 2009 after all marketing its a flop no doubts this ps3 fanboys buy yours PRECIUS exclusives please ;)
Fuking stupid inbred fuk. Yeah not world wide sales.
the only flop I see is you falling out of your mom!
"ps3 fanboys buy yours PRECIUS exclusives please ;)" We will if you take care of your 360... although that failure rate probably isn't your fault ;)
i can easily say the same with ODST.. Overated POS that should be called ODLC.
ODST outsold total UC2 sales in one weekend.
LOL flopza3 = <800k WW ltd . flopza3 couldnt even sell 250k in USA lol
Here's what you fail to understand. Here in the US, a 3rd person shooter is not so popular as FPS in online gaming. Player's knew they could goto BlockBuster or Hollywood video and rent this game for a whole week. Thus beating the single player game and getting the Plat trophy. Then returning the game. Much like most gamer's do nowadays with many game titles. So what looks like low sell figures to you. Sure didn't stop it from beating CODMW2 in GOTY did it now? Sell figures make Dev's happy. While the game itself made everyone who played it happy. Regardless on if they bought it or rented it. It's still the GOTY. [quote]ODST outsold total UC2 sales in one weekend. [quote] and what awards did that game ever win? Kids nowadays will by anything. Even if it's nothing more than a low level shooter like Halo is. It's a teenage kids fantasy come true game. With UC2, it's for the more mature gamer who can appreciate it's true magnificent graphic's and story line. Any "true' real gamer would see this regardless of what console it came out on.
I'm going to play Uncharted 2. NOW! -End statement
i'm always telling a friend of mine that the supposed Sony supporters that they say they are only want multiplatform games and he seemed to agree with me. i own all 3 consoles and another friend says im more of a sony supporter then the other two. here's list of exclusives and multi i've brought. Heavenly Sword Killzone 2 Infamous R&CF TOD R&CF AciT Uncharted 1,2 Resistance 1,2 Valkyria Chronicles (Best RPG for me this gen) Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Demon's Souls MGS 4 LBP Folklore Motorstorm 1,2 GoW Collection MLB The Show 09 GT5P Haze (dont know why lol) along with big name multi games CoD MW 1,2 RE5 Mirror's Edge PoP Borderlands Dragon Age Dead Space AC 1,2 NFS Shift Batman AA DMC4 Burnout Paradise Saints Row 2 SF4 i really wished PS3 owners would support the exclusives a bit more than they have.
Yes now bring out Uncharted 3
It is weird seeing the sales pattern for some of PS3 games. But they have such a diverse gaming crowd that 2 to 3 million units sold on a PS3 is good. Every PS3 genre has has good sales figures from action adventure to rpg. The PS3 does have gamers who play more than just First Person Shooters.
People are unsure of games like these, even if it gets GOTY. Racing games...ok we know what to expect. War shooters, ok yeah I know that will be when I buy it. Something titled Grand Theft Auto...I get ya. Some game called Uncharted? Well what type of game is it? People say it is good, but I dunno if I want to buy it. (speaking rhetorically of course, I have the game)
i know wer your coming from, but u2 did a lot better u2, and so the install base for another uncharted will defenitly be better.
I agree. It is taking a while for people to catch on, but now Naughty Dog has a lot of recognition for their work on the series. I am one of those that never played the 1st until UC2 came out. I wanted to get up to speed by playing the first one, and when I did, I was thinking, "Jeez, why didn't I play this great game when it first came out?"
When the average consumer looks at Uncharted...it's hard to tell what to expect. I believe that if the first Uncharted game was marketed better (even despite the crushing blows that the PS3 was taking at the time), then Uncharted 2 wouldn't have had to try so hard to establish itself as a worthy purchase. As it stands, there are many consumers that STILL don't know how to classify what type of experience this game offers. Therefore, it is easier to go for the racing game, or sports, a shooter, or fighting game. With all of the GoTY accolades, I expect that it will likely catch on with new adopters slowly but surely and make room for UC3 to sell like crazy.
but but , xbox fans always says that Halo and MW numbers is always the basis of success, you8 haev to sell 6 million plus to be called a success, hahaha sarcasm
CONGRATULATIONS!! This game deserves it
I wonder what total sales are world wide? I see this game selling 4-5 million in its lifespan.
after being beaten in monthly sales (Dec 09) now they run to per game sales :(
Finally! Uncharted 2 is a clear example of great quality = great sales this should be the normality.
Do we know the worldwide sales?
Game of the Year and only 1 Million? Most hyped game in 2009?? Hm.. remembers me on Killzone2
