IGN NPD Preview: Uncharted 2 to Dominate Sales

IGN: October NPD results are coming fast this month, and a few analysts have already provided their predictions for what's to come.

Electronic Entertainment Design and Research analyst Jesse Divnich expects Sony's blockbuster sequel Uncharted 2: Among Thieves to come out on top for the month of October, bringing in around 600,000 software unit sales. Other titles that should chart in the top 10 are Borderlands from 2K, Halo 3: ODST, and Double Fine's Brutal Legend

Insert here a classic MetalGearRising(or another stupid generic xbot) mongoloid comment about how the PS3 and Uncarted 2 are inferior and the Xbox will bring peace to the entire planet...

Stupid animals...

ReviewsArePolitics3730d ago

They are generic and retarded like their console and their games

4point7BillionLoss3730d ago

praising Sony's worst console in history, worst losses in history and worst community in history of gaming.

droids are fail.

lh_swe3730d ago

Good way to prove Waldex_Encore's point ;)

UC2 is my favorite PS3 game so far. I didn't care if it sold 5 copies or 1,000,000 copies as long as I was one of the 5 people who bought a copy of the game.

theEnemy3730d ago (Edited 3730d ago )

Bubbles for that badass comment.

And include me in the people who bought it btw.


silverbeld3730d ago


Agree with you there, you are truly real gamer. I also don't even care as long they deliver great games for me to enjoy. Its good to have competitions on the console market. We consumers are the winners!!

freddy993730d ago

But low sales means less chance for a sequel beeing made, so i guess i care about sales in that sanse.

Syronicus3730d ago

Agreed, and bubbles to you as well. bubbles to anybody that agrees with that post for they are truly gamers.

JoySticksFTW3730d ago

And I'm not talking the "ZOMG luk @ teh salez!!!11!! 2,000,o00 f1rst w33k!!" BS that we see sometimes.

I just want a game like Demon's Souls to sell well enough to justify a sequel, especially with the great gameplay ideas DS fans have been coming up with and the devs are interested in adding.

Look at games like Heavenly Sword and Lair, both of which I loved. Because of sluggish sales, there might never be a sequel with a chance to improve on what the critics griped about in those games.

F' all that. I want me a HS sequel :(

raztad3730d ago

UC3 is more than granted. UC2 is selling phenomenally good, specially if you compare with UC1 figures.

zeeshan3730d ago

You guys can say anything but I hope and wish for Naughty Dogs to get great rewards. I wish this game sells great and sells at least 3 million copies. THEY DESERVE IT.

JoySticksFTW3730d ago (Edited 3730d ago )

First, please reread my comment, and then read your rant - and see how foolish you look

Second, repeat First, because it's just too funny

Third, I own all systems (PS3, Wii, and yes 360) and no where in my comment did I say anything to "disrespect" any console's fanbase or games. And you come on here acting all [email protected] out for some reason.

If anything, my statement supports the 360 fanbase's long argued theory that game sales do matter. I just don't care if it reaches 10 mil status for so-called bragging rights.

You're pathetic and your comments shame yourself. LOL!

Tears!! Cry them for me, Beans! Oh, those glorious tears!!! :D

EDIT There's more!:

I'm sorry that I keep making fun of you Beans, but I just couldn't resist!

Here's Beans:

"Talk about some idiotic logic lol. So you honestly think the games that sale well don't get played as much as all your precious ps3 exclusives?"

Where did THIS come from?! Ah hahahahah...

Awww, the hurt feelings of a fanboy.

I'm sorry, wawrry little Beans. There there, feel better now? :(


beans3730d ago

You sound like Charlie Browns teacher...bla bla bla with your hairy hash brown looking Azz.

"Third, I own all systems (PS3, Wii, and yes 360)" It's called stealth trolling you funny guy. You may not have been doing it intentionally but it's there. I own all three consoles as well and prefer my 360 the most so it doesn't matter if you own all 3. Good try but don't get upset and whine when somebody calls you out lol.

JoySticksFTW3730d ago (Edited 3730d ago )

So when I stated that Mass Effect and Lost Odyssey can easily go up against the likes of Valkyria Chronicles and Demon's Souls (a game that I have stated many times has stopped me from completing the godly Uncharted 2), is that "Stealth Trolling"?

Or is it stealth trolling only when it's convenient to you?

You talk about PS3 fanboys on N4G, instead of playing games. But here you are, looking for unicorns, gremlins, and other make-believe.

If you just wanna play, I'll play. Heck, I'm home from work today bored-stiff. I used to love battling it out with fanboys like oh... I don't know... Power of Green for instance ;)

And Zhuk, Dark Sniper, Mart (I think N4G misses these personalities)

But if you're seriously acting insecure about your console of choice, you need psychiatric help, or a girlfriend, or a life. Don't go getting your feelings all hurt over video games like you did above. And certainly don't go delusional. I'm all for a good conspiracy theory but jeez...

Besides, if I was "stealth trolling" I would probably notice that the guy that I'm trying to annoy has a famous superhero for his avatar - and I'd change my avatar to his arch-nemesis to annoy him further.

Oh, wait...

beans3730d ago

Ok Joystick this is getting personal! What's your address so we can settle this like a hero and a villain? I promise not to piss in your lawn.

gumgum993730d ago

on the next Dragonball Z!!

JoySticksFTW3730d ago

I'd say "next on Challenge of the Super-Friends!"

or is that reference too old now? That was my show back in the day! :)

NeoBasch3730d ago (Edited 3730d ago )

I'd like to share in the excitement. All gamers, "xbot" or not, should play Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. It is definitely my personal favorite this generation; probably ever. Such a good game. Do not let this opportunity pass by! Next up, Assassin's Creed 2, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Mass Effect 2, Heavy Rain, God of War 3, Alan Wake, The Last Guardian, and Final Fantasy XIII. :D

P.S. These are just U.S. numbers. The game has already reached well over a million by now.

Xbox Avatars Shoe3730d ago (Edited 3730d ago )

Michael Pachter has an IGN user rating of 3.9/10 from 48 user reviews! Too bad IGN didn't do an official review of him but if they did, it would look something like this:

Presentation: 4 - Ugly outfits and bad hair are always sure to make an appearance at every Pachter interview. Not to mention, he looks like a guy who stands in the kiddy pool and smiles way too often. At least he tries to look good though and doesn't have hair like Daniel Kayser from

Sound: 3 - A bland and boring voice doesn't help his already dull interviews. It could be worse though; he could have an annoying-screech-of-a-voice like some of the GameSpot video reviewers.

Lasting Appeal: 1 - Once you read/hear 2 or 3 of his absurd interviews/predictions, you'll cringe whenever you see a headline which contains the words"According to Pachter." Not only will he make you want to avoid interviews and videos focused solely on him, he will make you want to avoid anything where he is just one of multiple participants, such as The Bonus Round.

Overall:2 - His appearance is poor, his voice is sleep-inducing and he makes you want to stab your eyes with needles and plug your ears with lit dynamite. If you're looking for good insight, there are many other, better, choices available.

Elaine Benes3730d ago

yes, but nobody cares about october. this is the month we all have been waiting for. sure Forza and UC2 and BL are great----but MW2's numbers are what we wanna see. :)

sikbeta3730d ago

PS3 – 320,000
Xbox 360 – 280,000

epic fail for ps3 cuz every month that passes ps3 lost more and more sales ..

iron_sheik3730d ago (Edited 3730d ago )

cuz when you add those 2 then you have ps3 outselling x360 2:1 worldwide :)

arcade is 200$ . still 100$ cheaper than the 120gb slim

TheBlackSmoke3730d ago (Edited 3730d ago )

Both consoles are the same price and the PS3 sells more...epic fail for sony?

Also consider the USA is Microsofts strongest region whilst sony owns japan and is clearly more popular in europe.

stonecold13730d ago

here in australia and newzealand just a thought

4point7BillionLoss3730d ago

and increase in sales represents an increase in debt ... especially after a price drop Sony couldn't afford in the first place.

expect losses to grow ...

JonnyBigBoss3730d ago

Such an outstanding game. It really deserves the great sales.

iron_sheik3730d ago
