Sony Computer Entertainment Japan has made an announcement regarding shipment numbers for Uncharted.
Awesome News. Came in to see 'Uncharted 3' Numbers. Not Posted =[
Approximately 4 million sold. i think.
I'm glad that the devs are being rewarded for their stellar work on the series.
Halo 3 sold 14 million units. Nice numbers anyway.
What's it got to do with Uncharted, if I may ask?
U mad bro?
Halo is only a generic sadly popular shooter on the contrary Uncharted is a gem in every aspect, we have to be gratefull to god for Naughty Dog existence, the best developers team out there did you know that Angri Bird has sold more than 100 millions? is Angry Bird a better game than Uncharted?
Yeah, numbers mean nothing but that the developers are rewarded for what they're doing. 14 million sales for Halo 3 is like giving your dog a treat for peeing on the rug. Well...maybe it's not that bad, but you get my point.
@leahcim Uncharted is a gem? Listen, idc about youre opinion on halo but uncharted is easily as generic as well. I mean just the fact it has shooting takes away any possibilities of it being non generic. Throw in some hd tomb raider elements and that basically uncharted in a nutshell. Sometimes you fanboys are heavily misinformed.
According to Metacritic, Halo 3 is higher rated than two of the three Uncharted titles though. And if you're going by the whole franchise, the first Halo is rated higher than Uncharted 2. This is just to show that Halo is not all about the sales, but it certainly has the quality to match. Congrats to the Uncharted series though, because it is by far the best PS3 exclusive franchise and it absolutely deserves these sales.
well? My dad is stronger than your dad
LACHANCE, SERVED.. HAVE A GREAT DAY SIR.
halo 3 SOLD. uc SHIPPED.
its like you are saying my cycle gives me more mileage than ferrari get some life man seriously halo is nothing just a bunch of people fighting with lasers(i avoided using the word losers)
Guess 14 million idiots bought Halo 3 then.
How many Game of the Year Awards though? zero. How many Xbox's got the RROD in that time? About 10 million.
Haha, atlest the 14 million copies on uncharted weren't wasted money. Sad that xbox delivers no quality competion. Gears, Halo, Fable dont come close to the quality of uncharted, god of war, killzone, resistance, infamous etc.. Also dont lie halo 3 has sold 8.1million copies.. peace
Good to see theres a lot of interest in the franchise. Plan on getting the complete edition if it ever comes out.
Haha at your disagrees like people know what your gonna buy and what your not. I'm sure they will have a trilogy pack.
They're trolling him because LOGICWINS pisses people off.
Logic in general pisses people off. It requires them to stop and think, and this task can be painful for some.
Logic does not piss people off. It may confuse them for a time, or it may frustrate them, as logic isn't to be applied in all situations. LOGICWINS is a troll, albeit a sneaky one. and HE certainly pisses people off. But it's rare that his comments- especially those that are supposed to be part of some sort of civilized debate- are based on actual logic. The high number of disagrees he's gotten on his comment is reflective more of that than anything else. People have no faith in his words, nor should they, as he's proven himself to be unworthy of belief, and a contradictory existence to his chosen name.
Fantastic franchise, Naughty Dog are amazing developers. Uncharted 1-3 are some of my favorite games this generation for sure.
proud to own uncharted best game period this generation need more games made like this well done sony and naughty dog.
it sure is a great game but i really would hate to see this genre ruined by many other developers trying to copy it.
I agree and I really hope that the new Tomb Raider feels and looks different than Uncharted.
Still not enough if you compare it to standalone release of some games like skyrim which sold nearly 5 million on both consoles and PC, or battlefield 3 which sold multi million copies.. Upcoming UC4 alone should sell like 10 million for them to easily brag that UC series a great IP.
There's absolutely no need for the Uncharted series to sell 1 billion copies to brag that they are a great IP. US the gamers and the critics already branded the UC series a great IP. The sales will keep moving, and I don't need a sale number to tell me if the game is worth it or not.
Halo 3 for example sell more than UC series combined. ( around 14.5 M copies sold for consumer) below@ hipocrity much?
both Mario and Gran Turismo have outsold the Halo series. Keep trolling kid.
*sigh* I really don't like those number touting articles. Release those numbers to the stock traders and investors, but not to gamers, because the "little good" that is intended by releasing those numbers to the gaming community are negated because all we get are "Idiotic comments" like: "i agree agent. Halo 3 for example sell more than UC series combined. ( around 14.5 M copies sold for consumer)" Seriously, we're talking about a series which includes Uncharted 2; The most awarded game in history, and some guys are talking about it not being great because it didn't sell more then 14 million units. Angry birds just passed 500 million downloads, Should I call Halo Sh!t, or Mario, or Call of Duty all Sh!ts because of that? Edit: 2 the guy Below me: I'm afraid I dont know what you speak of, I don't ever recall being in a skyrim article ever, so you must have me confused for someone else. And you not being impressed about angry birds doesn't make the 500,000,000 Downloads less impressive. There are many free games out there, not many can even boast a quarter of that. And I know that one Halo game selling so much is new to you, but in the playstation family, we've had games selling great numbers ever generation, so please get your facts right. And where do you get off calling me a kid when your stance seems to back up the illogical comment made above that the Uncharted series can't be considered great because it didn't sell above 14 million units? Thanks old man.
@Cupid_Viper_3 Wait. On all those Skyrim articles, awards meant nothing. Now they mean something because it took 3 Uncharted games to compare to the sales of one Halo game? You kids these days. A revolving circles of excuses being backed up by hypocritical statements. Oh and FYI, Angry Birds is free. Not $60 like Halo and Uncharted. If the paid version cost $60 and sold 500 million, then I'd be impressed.
Uncharted has a lot more competition on PS3 than what Halo does on the Xbox.
Quite the opposite @BitbyDeath, quite the opposite. Check out the number of games released on each platform so far any you'll see.
You're joking right? 1st off... Halo has been brought up out of no where = fanboy 2nd off 14million is insanely good 3rd off both COD and "Angry Birds" have outsold Halo (does this make Halo irrelevant?) 4rth off.. sales != quality. Number 3 + Halo sales proves that on their own. and @humbleopinion. Quite the opposite? All I see on the 360 selling like crazy consist of 2 platform exclusives and a bunch of multiplats. I consistently have to choose between exclusives on my ps3. Only an ignorant fanboy wouldn't admit that there's an insane lack of exclusive variety on the 360 to choose from. idgit.
but not as much as Gran Turismo
Really? Your gonna base your argument on the fact that some games released on no more than "3" platforms outsold an exclusive? The straws never stood a chance.
You can make anything look insignificant if you try hard enough. And you seem to be trying awfully hard.
Call of Duty sells a bagillion copies every single year, but a lot of people hate it. So what does that tell you about numbers?
They can brag about their game being one of the fucking best franchises this gen!
I hope they give the Uncharted series a rest and the next one is on PS4. There are other franchises from ND that need their attention as well like Jak And Daxter. I've been playing Sly Cooper 1 lately and the PS3 could definitely benefit from having such a fun, different and original games like Jak and Daxter or Sly Cooper.
The Game was in development and but was scrapped because they felt they were making a game they wanted and not what gamers wanted! as a result they went with The Last of Us instead!
So love the Uncharted series , my fave of all time =) can't wait for Uncharted 4
I love it too :) Just finished Golden Abyss PSV, and have Uncharted 2 and 3 for ps3. I have not played uncharted 1 yet though, but I am saving it for next winter :D
Wow, nice work. Well deserved. Uncharted's combination of platforming and shooting feels so fluid to me. I recently just finished another well known TPS who I wont name here, but and it felt so rigid. It had none of Uncharted's grace. Not to mention the wit and humour. The characters were so unlikeable, which a usually forgive in a shooter unless they're at the point where they are just annoying. One of the best new IP's this gen.
I agree it has very fluid gameplay. But the insane attention to detail down to the way Drake walks or stumbles and pushes off a wall really bring it to life. It feels so natural. When I play Mass Effect 3 and see Shepard's incredibly stiff gait, I long for Uncharted's fluid animations. Uncharted would have to be my second favorite platform exclusive franchise this gen, only behind Gears of War, which takes the lead for me because of its incredibly satisfying and visceral gameplay, and its unrivaled and unique multiplayer component.
Uncharted Series is the best. I enjoyed it and have much respect for ND, they are the best @ what they do.
I mean, how could you not buy thge upcoming "The Last of Us" :D Its a definite buy!
I mean, how could you not buy the upcoming "The Last of Us" :D Its a definite buy!
I'm mos def gettin The Last Of Us, the game looks amazing.
Amazing series and my favourite games of this generation. Best new IP this gen IMO.
Because you can't buy direct from the publisher. I work at a medical manufacturer, we also dont say "sold", we say we "shipped" eventhough they are sold. I believe it's like this because in the manufacturing business you dont get paid right away. When we "ship" to our customers they have 30 days to pay or return, then after the 30 days they get charged interest. Thats how the businesses world works.
Because that's how publishers have done it since the beginning of time? Halo 3's 14+ million, Gran Turismo 3's 14+ million, Call of Duty's 20+ million are all shipped numbers! Every official number you see is shipped.
Best trilogy this gen for sure.
I have noticed it bundled alot lately with the console so people are getting it for free like gt5 well done sony.
Definitely my favorite franchise this generation.Enjoying Golden Abyss on my brand new PS Vita right now.I hope it enjoys more success,critical and commercial,in the future.
Last generation was all singleplayer games for me, this gen it's mostly multiplayer that I prefer...but I gladly retreat from battle a few days to enjoy a good singleplayer adventure, and this series is the best. All 3 parts you play with a smile from beginning to end, and because you can't stop playing the average absence from the battlefield is only 2 or 3 days:)
I supported evey Uncharted, from the good game that was "Drake's Fortune" to the interactive cinematic experience that is "Drake's Deception." Bring on the Last of Us, ND, and give Nathan Drake a rest till next-gen.
The uncharted franchise deserves every bit of those 14 million shipped units. I am not a fan of the uncharted series as I find the gameplay just way too liner and the shoehorned multiplayer a complete train wreck. However the stories are very well done and the cinematic gameplay is the best in the industry right now. The only new franchises released this gen that top uncharted is gears of war and mass effect.
DEF the best selling game of this gen, BYE BYE COD
Best game series this gen... cant wait for Uncharted 4 (on PS4)
hey guys how do i submit news , blogs and articles ?
Why hate a game just because it's on another system? You fanboy's seriously need to get a life. The Uncharted series is a good one. So is the Halo series. Nothing more to say.
I think a lot of people misunderstood the article for saying "look at these sales numbers! Aren't they the biggest you've ever seen???" Noone is saying these are the most impressive sales number ever seen. They are only congratulating a fantastic studio for earning well deserved numbers. There is no need to post "WELL....Halo 3 sold this" or "COD sold that".
And that is one reason why sony funded naughty dog opening a second studio. They don't seem that interested in handhelds though, would be nice if they created a small vita team.
I liked the UC series and am glad that it got good numbers. I really don't understand why people always have to rag on any game that doesn't sell over 10 million copies. Their are games that barely even crossed the million mark or didn't at all and people never go on about it that much. Alan Wake only now crossed 2 million and Forza 4 barely even crossed the million mark but that doesn't stop people from bragging about how great these games are. The UC games were great series and I really don't see what sales have to do with it. Okami, Psychonauts and Viewtiful Joe 2 didn't sell well and were some of the greatest games I have ever played.
Well deserved steller series for one of the industry's best development house.
