ShopTo.Net is predicting that Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception on the PlayStation 3 could be the biggest selling game of 2011
“Pre-Orders for Uncharted 3 are still coming in every day, despite it being nearly a year away. As it stands at the moment Drakes Deception has already outsold what is likely to be our other big title of 2011, Gears of War 3.” Great news for Sony and Naughty Dog! Cant wait for Nov 2011!
I think it'll sell quite alot more actually. Probably 5 million for U3, thanks to the larger install base of Europe. Hell even Japan loves some Uncharted.
Uncharted won't sell more than Gears 3 and if anyone thinks so, I'll set up some bets if you're really serious. I'll find a way through paypal or something. They have to be kidding themselves.
As much as I love Uncharted series, I have to agree with Active Reload. No way in hell it's selling more than gears. See, Ps3 has more of a variety/options. 360 only has that ONE blockbuster every year, so of course they're going to get crazy sales when they only have like a good game or 2 on the market.
They act like everyone who pre-orders games ends up actually picking them up.
I agree with active reload. I have to tactically plan how im gonna spend my money in 2010. Littlebigplanet 2 Killzone 3 Infamous 2 Motorstorm Socom 4 Resistance 3 Uncharted 3 And thats not including multiplats. Gears is really the only blockbuster title for the 360 next year.
gears will sell more.. because of the lack of other exclusives games on the console :P another halo spin off probably and mhhhh what else? lol
Not going to happen. Gears will outsell UC as it did both times before.
it's still going to be a better game. that's all i care about. that is coming from a person that loves gears.
^^^ What is this article about? Can you read?
i still believe it to be true, but like i said you are right on this.
Bollocks. It might be the biggest selling PS3 game, but we all know that nothing can touch COD as things stand, whether we like it or not.
Even though it'll be one of if not the top game alongside possibly Crysis 2, Gears 3 and ME3 It'll prob still sell less than whatever cod comes out.
lol @ their prediction Uncharted 3 wont even be in the top 10 for 2011.
I really envy your ability to look into the future.....
LOL isn't it the same retailer that predicted move will outsell Kinect based on their preorders.. lol :) we all know how that went
I think he was saying since Move is obviously advertised to the casual gamers right now because of what its competing against that people usually buy 2-4 controllers. I'm pretty sure people only purchase one Kinect
Move has "SHIPPED" 4.5 mil Kinect has "SOLD" 2.5 mil units :) You were saying ??
http://www.electricpig.co.u... Date: November 30th @ 4.1 million units You were saying?
"The reported 4.1 million units sold comes from the controller bundle with Sports Champions and the 320GB Playstation 3 bundle." wow, and i can see why, honestly the move is pretty damn fun.
although this is ONE source only thats pretty damn impressive =O U3 will be huge. if U2 has almost reached the 5 mil mark 1 year after release, imagine U3 =O great news =) since more sales means MOAR GAMEZ and more support =)
@CrAnKiTuP_01 "Sony confirms shipping, not selling, 4.1 million Move units" http://www.digitaltrends.co... 4.1 mil "SHIPPED" You were saying ????
N4G has the silliest posters ever, with some of the worst articles ever. Just the 1st month of Gears 3 in the Americas will out sell Uncharted 3 for the entire year world wide in 2011: Period! Now, you silly fanboys can disagree all you want & N4G can continue to post dumb*ss forecasts reported in articles like this; but numbers dont lie, people do. Gears 3 will be the victor here people.
It's possible but I think ME3 will give it a run since it's multi-platform and potentially Crysis 2
Is Mass Effect that popular? I remember some data from EA's financial reports that Mass Effect 2 hasn't even broken past 2 million on X360 and PC combined. No wonder they're bringing it over to PS3. http://www.examiner.com/vid... Dunno about Crysis 2 though, probably sell more on consoles. That much is atleast guaranteed.
yeah its a myth the ME actually is a sales giant but people really seem to love the story.
Not to mention Uncharted cracked past 4 million sales on PS3 alone ages ago. And since the Uncharted franchise get bigger each time a new iteration is released, I seriously doubt both games are going to sell as much as U3 let alone U2.
Each iteration of Mass Effect has sold about 2.3 million units on the XBox 360. Not a sales juggernaut by any means but a success. I think what gives Mass Effect it's cult following is being critically lauded and previously being exclusive. I've ripped the first game for being a mediocre shooter masquerading as an epic RPG. The second is more a mediocre RPG masquerading as a competent shooter. But on topic; it's great that we can now predict sales numbers for a title a year away based on preorder numbers at an online retailer. /sarcasm
lol Stan. Totally agree with your assessment of ME1 and ME2. Both are still great games though.
wow superking that news made me sad =( ME is such an amazing franchise, sometimes it hurts to see games like COD sell so much and games like ME and Team Ico games under sell =( not that ME sells bad, but NO WAY should it only be that much =/
"May 12th, 2010 8:00 am ET" Look at the goddamn date before posting something. That report is from more than 7 months ago. Mass Effect 2 released at the end of January 2010 which means it sold 1.6 million copies in roughly 4 months.
While Gears 3 has sold a lot, its really not that far apart from uncharted sales. I believe Gears 2 lifetime sales was 5 million while U2 lifetime sales are around 4 million. I definitley see this happening. We all know it will outsell Forza 4 lol
wow Gears 1 is at 6 million on vgchartz, and wiki gears 2 is at 6 million on vgchartz i didn't know that i always thought it sold like 10 million the way people talk about it but i can see UC3 could sale more if only the same and if Gears sales 6 million and UC3 sales 6 million we all win because those are great numbers.
LOL @ you for believing VGChartz!!!
and wiki said the same thing and i never said vgchartz were correct or what have you. i use them as a estimation of sales. if the say a game sold 1 million it probably did around 1 million. so while you LOL i'll be LMAO @ your lack of logic for not using them the way i do
You know the Wiki aticle could very well have been written or edited by someone at VGChartz right? Wiki is not always a reliable source of facts, nor is VGChartz. I'm looking forward to both games tbh so the only sales that matter to me are related to the two purchases I'll be making. One for Gears 3 and one for Uncharted 3.
wiki could be they monitor the stuff if its updated so you can rely on wiki moe than vgchartz but yeah its possible
They also said GT5 was going to be the biggest PS3 release ever and look what happened there. ShopTo is small online retailer who focuses on the PS3 this really doesn't count for much. Oh and lets not forget COD for 2011
Well GT5 is top of the UK Christmas chart. 5.5m sales is not a bad thing.
a gaming outlet looking to make money which sells games for every console and PC also but it focuses on one platform? yep because they dont want to sell 360,wii and pc games,they put fanboy mentality like yours before making a profit s/ and shopto.net are one of the quickest rising internet sites,google it,they are far from small every comment you make is full of crap how old are you?
5.5 shipped more like it
@units Have you got a link for that because Sony Japan list sold http://www.prnewswire.com/n...
It is poised to be the top selling PS3 exclusive. What are you going on about? Yeah... lets not forget the drones of mindless idiots that purchase COD every year.
GT5 biggest PS3 exclusive launch......check fastest selling racing game this generation......check so stop the BS and get over it. WHY SO MUCH HATE TOWARD GT5 is it because it going to out sale gears 3 and UC3. just saying i don't see gears 3 or UC3 getting to 7 million
Shopto are a pretty big online retailer here in the UK, not sure where you get the impression otherwise. Not the biggest by any means but they do have a fairly large customer base. They don't focus on the PS3 either, I know because I get hit with their emails every week and there's usually always one focusing on PS3 and one focusing on 360, much of the time both emails feature the same games but of course exclusives are thrown in there too.
No some stupid COD game will come out and then everyone will buy that; not learning from the mistakes of BO and MW2. When Uncharted 3 or another nonmilked franchise deserves the sales
You do know that this is the 3rd Uncharted game in 4 years don't you?
4th halo in 3 years.... it gets sales.....Uncharted isn't milked. It seems to be 2011 GOTY so far
Oh shut up, they've got over 100 people at ND working flat out on Uncharted and no other games to distract them, so it's pointless just waiting between games for the sake of it when you can push out a brilliant game every 1 and a half years
Yeah, UC3 comes out 8 days before cod's annual release date...that could really hurt it, I dunno
Um no it will either be Gears or some COD game I bet money the world doesnt care for UC
no it will either be u3 or some COD game
Gears don't even look exciting anymore. Who wants to play big meaty greasy looking dudes on steroids. Not me.
LOL... Did you not see the teaser trailer? Did you not see the innumerable articles analyzing the trailer that were funneled through this website the day after trailer premiered on the VGAs? I could go on but you are either trolling or out of touch with reality. I am guessing that it must be the latter. I am going to go out on a limb and say that it has a chance of outselling GEARS, especially if there is a price-drop to $199 next year and the install base is increased significantly. The Uncharted series is quickly becoming one of the most beloved this generation.
Whoa! After watching this http://www.ign.com/videos/2... I say it's between KZ3 & UC3
Hmmm not so sure my wish would be for the last guardian to be the highest but that would probably end up being a cult classic, real shame.
I love Uncharted but I don't think it will overtake Gears 3 in sales, maybe graphics but not sales.
u3 will overtake Gears 3 in quality
Maybe you should read my comment again but more carefully this time.
ShopTo.Net is predicting stop reading
I don't think is gonna outsell every other game next year but since i don't care about that i'll buy it because ND knows how to make masterpieces
is that pele? but then you let it down with mcfly....
lol here we go again god of war 3 will outsell everything gt5 will outsell everything when it didn't even beat xbox 360 black op sells alone unchated 3 best seller my ass..
Die zeldaforever. Just die. All I know about you is that you sold your PS3 for a Wii, so you can not be taken seriously in any way, making your opinion void. You are also a mad xbox fanatic who thinks that xbox games have better graphics than ps3 exclusives...lol Xbox is like 6th and a half generation...ps3 is 7th
@ ZeldaForever , you say this because you have never played Uncharted.
Some people seem to think that because Gears of War 3 will beat Uncharted in sales, that it will be a better game. Gameplay makes a good game.....Not sales
Gears has awesome gameplay! That's why many many people continued to play it even though when it was released it was pretty much broken. But a lot of people love the gameplay gears brings, including me. Uncharted does not even play like gears, uncharted is more of an awesome version of tombraider.
gears got stale after the first, i only played the second for the horde mode, and i'll most likely give the 3rd a try, but its honestly not that great of a game.
With COD 20000000000, and Halo 1 remake I sadly doubt it :(.
It could think about it PS3's WW sales are set to reach 50M by march 2011 and by november PS3 could be around 60M units sold, and thats not including a possible price cut.
