Uncharted 3 should definettly be higher considering how much Sony reported.

dark-hollow2352d ago

If i get 1 cent for every time someone post this....

evilunklebud2352d ago

Nobody said it was.... It is still an important region, as is the data from it.

evilunklebud2352d ago

disagrees... SO, it is not important? OK.

Some here think that the 3.5 million (1.1 million in the US if you follow VG) numbers were lies. Even if it shipped that much the first day, it should have those copies sold by the end of November or atleast most.

Edit: @ Amazing

Just Dance 3 just 1 million...and the Wii 1.1 million?

MostJadedGamer2352d ago

First of all the 3.8 million is WORLDWIDE SHIPMENT numbers. Second of all NPD only tracks US sales. Uncharted 3 is NOT going to be high on the NOV Top 10 sales list.

SPARDA_4262352d ago

Yea i get disagrees for saying that Uncharted 3 should be higher people really need to learn how to count.Yea thats the thing if Sony reported 3.5 million sold/ shipped the retailers most likely sold most copies. When i went to get my copy of Uncharted 3 i got lucky cuz i got the last one. If it is just 700K then it really dosent make sense. id say about 2 million for the first sounds right.

MostJadedGamer2352d ago (Edited 2352d ago )

Uncharted 3 will probably finish about #8 on the Nov 10 top.

But Uncharted 3 sold more than that on the first day

SDF Repellent2352d ago (Edited 2352d ago )

People, Uncharted did not sold 3.8 millions copies on day one to customers. The 3.8 millions were shipped to distributors. The distributors are the ones shipping copies to retailers based on orders. That is how Sony always operate when they said sold.

Here is my prediction for November

1. MW3
2. Skyrim
3. Assassin's Creed Revelation
4. HALO Anniversary
5. Zelda Skyward Sword
6. Battlefield 3
7. Uncharted 3
8. Saint's Row 3
9. Just Dance 3
10. Gears of War 3

I wish there was a company that gave out monthly worldwide numbers, US-only is as useless as Japan-only or Europe-only, I want a complete picture not a fraction of one.

evilunklebud2352d ago

It isn't really useless, it is a pretty large sample of consumers. I agree, however, that it would be cool to see worldwide trends as well.

Focus2352d ago

Lol lots of people still seem to be confused about uncharted 3 numbers.
Allow me to clarify.
1. Those numbers were not US only numbers, they were worldwide, so obviously the US only numbers will be much less.
2. Those first day sales numbers were shipped to retail numbers and not polo through to customers. That means there aren't 3.8 million copies of UC3 in people's homes at the moment and no matter how optimistic you force yourself to be, most of those copies were not sold out so please stop deludins yourself.
Vgchartz may not be the authority in video game sales but they do pretty ok guesses/estimations and they had UC3 at 1.1 million first week.
BF 3 shipped 10 million copies first week and everybody got all excited but in the end they didn't even sell 5 million to consumers. Expect Uncharted 3 to be the same, esp since it released one week before PS3's most beloved franchise. . .CoD.
