Uncharted 2 has achieved its target sales in less than 2 months after release, a great accomplishment for a great game.
IT ONLY DOSE EVERYTHING. PS3-Uncharted 2: Among Thieves: 2,513,569
It definately deserves these sales! I couldn't be more pleased for Naughty Dog right now.
and for us. Means other devs may try to follow suit by making games with characters that speak and look like real people. Just played through Uncharted 2 again recently and it's better the second time around.
The things that matter are High review scores and Awards. /s.
"1.3 - Sale? Who cares about sales? The things that matter are High review scores and Awards. /s. " LOL! Anyhow, should I play Uncharted 1 before jumping onto Uncharted 2? I still have Uncharted 1 unopened....
if the sales is poor u may not get uncharted 3. Us gamers should care about sales, particularly sales of good games.
I don't really care about sales, as in it doesn't affect what game is good or not to me. I only care about the devs selling a decent amount so they can make a sequel to a good game. What is a decent amount? 1 million-2 million, depending on the game. inFAMOUS is one of the best games I've played this gen and has sold just over 1 million. Enough for me.
Play Uncharted Drakes Fortune first. That game is a great experience, and when you move on to Uncharted Among Thieves you will appreciate it even more. Enjoy the games, both are awesome
Amazing for Naughty Dog, UC2 is a Perfect Game...
I'd DEFINITELY recommend you playing the original Uncharted: Drakes Fortune. I actually liked it more than Among Thieves myself. Drakes Fortune has the better character progression and story and Among Thieves have the better gameplay.
Notice to Devs: If you bring it, we will buy it!
"selling just over 2.5 Million copies in just 2 months (yes we are aware that VGChartz is not entirely reliable, but what else do we have?)" -ps3center.net -It's certainly possible UC2 has sold more than 2.5 worldwide, and if so its definitely much deserved, but its just comical to see how universally accepted these sales #'s from vgchartz is universally accepted by the n4g elite sony folks who always hate on vgchartz sales figures whenever it is remotely seen as lackluster for sony, lmfao you sony loyalists have NO BACKBONE, you easily change your tone depending upon which way the wind blows. Just further proof, you don't decide what you believe based on merit, the only factor in your beliefs is brand loyalty to the ps logo. It's so funny, after 46+ comments in the open zone, not seeing even 1 negative vgchartz comments prior to me making this post. btw, real sites who don't just write for hits on n4g, never say: "(yes we are aware that VGChartz is not entirely reliable, but what else do we have?)"= ps3center.net is just a fanboy site operated by a n4g ps3 extremist member, CONFIRMED. JOY
MINIMUM. Remember, they used VGCharts as their source. ;) Congrats Naughty Dog, well Deserved.
I agree with Joke on this one. Usually VGChartz throw up a red flag, but it seems when there is positive news nobody cares. Then again, I have always said it and say it again, PS3center is a Sony Playstation extremist web site. I never give them my clicks!
@IdleLeeSiuLung You should definitely play Uncharted 1 first. You will appreciate all the old characters that show up in Uncharted 2 rather than attributing everything to deus ex machina. Also, all the little jokes that refer back to Uncharted 1 will make sense.
I see what your saying but I've also stated in the past that we need to use VGChartz as more of an indicator of how a game is selling. No one should look at VGChartz numbers and think they are exact. All these numbers show is that Uncharted 2 has sold AROUND 2.5 million units, and that us great news for Naughty Dog.
Totally agree with JOY on this one. Truly is funny how they are quoting vgchartz numbers. I thought VGchartz was inaccurate according to all the ps3 fans on here, both past and present? Oh wait... it's a positive spin on UC2 sales? So I guess VGC is ok, now? ... until the next pro 360 VGC story, at least, huh?
it will probaly reach 3.5 million by the end of the year
they told me "the ps3 is dooooooooooooooomd!!!!" and "the ps3 games doesnt sells" ...it was a lie?
The most amazing game you will ever play! I have just finished my first play through - awesome, awesome, awesome. Play this game. Even if you have a Wii or XBox, play it. Forget about bias towards consoles - This is just one Brilliant game and the graphics are Amazing! Uncharted 1 is superb, but this goes even better. I hate to be predictable but this game is as good as it gets. Everything about it is AAA - gameplay, controls, acting, graphics, multiplayer. Naughty Dog have produced two masterpieces and are to be saluted. Hope it sells 5-10 million..
I got my coy at midnight because the multiplayer demo had me hooked. I wasnt planing on buying it for the great SP only but after playing the great multi I wanted it ASAP. Its a great online 3rd person shooter. I only wish it had a free-for all mode. I hope we see some DLC multiplayer maps soon!!
BUT BUT BUT B U T B U T PS3 OWNERS DON'T BUY GAMES LOL. SUCK IT BOTS. http://vgchartz.com/games/g... Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City: 1,037,372>>>flop Lips: Number One Hits 9 : 210,747>>>>> lol Halo Wars:1,700,000 >>>>> but but but gaylo going to sell 10M DAY 1.
ghamdikh3 >>>>>>> Flop
LuHawk27 >>>>>>> xFlop
Of course it has sold well it is awesome. Clearly ahead of any other game out on the market. This has also lead to people getting the orginal. Go PS3 go Naughty Dog, and to the bots who say the PS3 does not sell games, or that it's inferior to the 360 BOOM! let's see your machine put out a game with as high quaility as Uncharted one let alone Unchated 2
Vincent VII and his ugly ass momma>>>>>>& gt;>>>>>>> >>>>>>xxx Flop
LOL...Halo Reach will sell this many in the first half hour when released.
Well thats a no brainer because the 360 has no games.
a million a month but it's still doooooooommmmmmeeedddddddddd cuz it falz to betz teh haloz LOL
Yup, Uncharted 2 should be thrown in the flop bin along with gears of war, forza 3, and mass effect 2
Just got platinum trophy for U2 today. Glad its selling well, but it's still a shame, Uncharted 2 is probably one of the best videogame of this generation and only 2.5 million people have experienced it out of 25+ million install base.
Still very strong sales, its possible people purchase the PS3 for the blu-ray and maybe a lil'bit of gaming. My sister and brother in law did this, and never even heard of Uncharted 2 until I brought it over one day.
It's easy to put things relative to the install base, whereas you have to realise that not all people are going to want to buy a game, even if they acknowledge that it's the best this year. They might only buy 1 game a year and it might be a sports game, for instance. Let's not forget that even with Halo 3, more than TWO THIRDS of people with 360s do not even own the game. With MW2 on PS3, only about a fifth of the install base have the game! And yet those games are regarded as the biggest sellers.
You just have to give it time. And as for it being sad....I don't see how. I play MP every day and there is plenty of people on it.
my friend, the x-bot, has been hounding me about lending him my copy of UC2. I told him to get his own copy as I want him to pay for a Sony game. I know it just kills, and I mean, KILLS HIM that the 360 doesn't have a game that performs like UC2. I am loving every minute of this. I sure as hell won't lend him Demons Soul either!!! I'm done lending games to friends, unless it's Hannah Montana sing fest 2009.... LOL
"Uncharted 2 is probably one of the best videogame of this generation and only 2.5 million people have experienced it out of 25+ million install base." Agreed. 2 Million = Uncharted 1 lifetime sales. 2.5 Million = Uncharted 2 total sales two months after release. Its a shame AT LEAST half a million people bought U2 before, if even, U1. In other words, alot are missing out on U1. Regardless of that, im happy U2 brought in many more fans.
A lot of early adopters did buy it for the built in blu ray player that is true.
acording bots is epic fail cuz halo odst sell 2.0 in 1 day.. :/
But ODST blows and everyone knows it even the bots, and halo fanboys. That is why everyone can't wait for Reach because there already sick of ODLC
When there are no other games to buy, ofcourse it will sell 2M in one day. We PS3 owners are lucky to have a huge choice of exclusives which see's see's Sony Computer Entertainment make the 2009 Top 10 Publisher list with 20M+ sales.... unlike Microsoft who didn't have a single first party company in that list.
Without a doubt, the most fun I've had playing a game ever!!! Congrats to Naughty Dog, and Sony. This game will have strong legs, and probably get to the 5 Million mark.
i dont care if bots say ps3 games dont sell but ND not only made the profit but reached the target they wanted in less than 4 months . so now they have like 2 more years of selling this until uncharted 3 i think. so yea let halo sell 2 mil in day 1 , but who gives a rats ass when the game sucks ???
importanly it has great legs,150-200k every week. Lifetime it ll reach 3.5-4 mil
But wait I thought no one was buying this game? HAHAHAHA!!
Glad to hear it. Well deserved.
Wow best game of 2009 and it dissevers all the praise and recognition it has and will receive in the years to come.gg nd
I felt so sorry, that I wrote a song about it. And it rhymes!: The Playstation Franchise was once a juggernaut, the big man on the block, Many different consoles wanted their title, but Playstation had it ON LOCK. The Gamecube, XBOX 1, Dreamcast, and even CD-I gave strong efforts, but the fight was to no avail, Because Playstation had the top reviews, a plethora of great games, and most importantly, had great sales. But then, a new console arrived on the scene, and revolutionized the way that we game, They took the failures from the past generation, and applied their knowledge to their blossoming name. The Original XBOX was a modest success, its hardware and software were a perfect match, But a NEW XBOX could monopolize the Market, especially if it had a new Halo attached. So Microsoft released the hardware a year early, beating Sony at its own game you see, It was smart and a failure at the same time, because it prompted the problem called RROD. But with a 3-year warranty, the best games on the Market, and groundbreaking XBOX Live in tow, The XBOX360 took over Hardcore Gaming, and Playstation was no longer the show. Then the PS3 released at $599, and the Industry laughed in Sony's face, No matter how much they liked their console, they already had lost the race. They had no games, PSN was a joke, and PS3 hardly got a mention, And XBOX Live was such a perfect service, that Gamers just had to pay attention. So now four years later, Playstation 3 is finally starting to hit its stride, A desperate Slim Model, and mediocre games, the Gamers have chosen a side. If you look at the charts, PS3 Games are missing, their exclusives are never on display, Because everyone knows that people purchase the Playstation 3 for one reason... It's called BluRay. XBOX360 has stolen the Market, it hurts I know, but the PS3 is an epic fail, You're celebrating a MONSTER exclusive like Uncharted 2 hitting its TARGET SALES. For all of the Marketing, Reviews, and Buzz that Uncharted 2 received, along with a standing ovation, Its sales should EASILY be in the Top 10 titles of this current videogame generation. So keep on trying... Microsoft is the victor, and PS3 is deep in the red, And with 2010 just getting started, the Playstation name is already dead. XBOX360 has the best exclusives, and we TRUE gamers plan on having a ball, From Splinter Cell, to Fable III, to Halo: Reach, and even Project Natal. 2.5 Million consoles is a decent effort, I applaud your desperation, But the game-buying consumers on Playstation 3 have taken a permanent vacation. M.A.G. is about to flop, Heavy Rain will disappoint, and God of War III is just more of the same, And none of these things matter anyway, because NO ONE buys a PS3 to GAME. "It's not a sprint, it's a marathon..." "Ever heard of the Tortoise and the Hare?" Use all the excuses that you want. The PS3 proof is pretty obvious. All I know is that... NO. ONE. CARES. Playstation 3 sucks. :-)
geez how many foster homes have you been in
Cod-Philosophy 101 : Lecturer Mr.D.Truth2009(B.S. in uneducated Rambling) (Edit - Exactly HOW MUCH SPARE TIME do you have?!? Surely there's toilets to scrub, windscreens to squeegee,etc..)
What you say? I can't hear you! Speak up boy! You're mumbling with that one bubble!
idiot get a life, no one is desperate here they only said it met their sales target. 1st party studios main job is to move consoles,if sony gets the money they invested back its fine for them, only 3rd party multiplatform games sales matter. MW2 = 6 million. You say ps3 has mediocre games, then praise uncharted as MONSTER exclusive wtf is wrong with you, are you just posting hate posts here. FCK OFF. PS3 is 3 years old, 360 is 4 years old all false information, pathetic xbot. PS3 outsold 360 in Japan and EU, inspite of 1 year lead, YOU ARE A BIG LIAR, Splinter cell, fable3, halo reach you call these AAA games? NO ONE CARES about 360 games, stuff your halo inside your #@@#$ and GTFO and stop trolling PS3 articles.
Despite what these guys above me are saying, that was pretty creative. I wouldn`t mind reading something creative like that but against the 360. I do enjoy creative minds. Remember these: http://www.youtube.com/watc... and http://www.youtube.com/watc... Classics. Any takers, Maybe TheReality has something brewing on paper as well.
"User only got 1 bubble" I CAN'T HEAR YOU.
I have no doubt it'll attain 4 million copies sold by the end of this year, especially with Sony's long-term marketing strategy. For instance, Warhawk was advertised for over a year after its release.
It deserves much more copies sold. This game is unique. I dont know how can Halo sell more copies than this one, this game is absolutly astonishing, Halo will never reach uncharteds lvl of greatness, but thats just my opinion.
lol 1 bubble.. NO. ONE. CARES ABOUT YOUR 1 BUBBLE ;)
I'm so happy for you Naughty Dog. You've achieved target sales. Hope more people get to experience this masterpiece. -End statement
Will someone please explain to me what the hel teh,means and why people put a z on the end of words that clearly dont end in z. Also WTF is this youtube video the plays on here all about. I cannot relate to 15 year old girls being in love. Take that SH*T down N4G, ITS NOT A GOOD LOOK.
"teh" is used almost always in a sarcastic way, mocking those who spend so little time proof-reading their comment that they miss obvious typos like writing the letters the wrong way round in the word "the". Much like how writing !!!1111 at the end of a sentence is mocking those who forget to hold down shift for all of the exclamation marks. So saying something like "bububu teh salezzzz!!111" is mocking an immature fanboy who always goes on about sales. Of course using this kind of lingo can be immature in itself but it gets the point across.
2.5million? Not being a troll here but I find that very hard to believe considering the NPD results and UK charts as of late. It must have had a massive boost in December to reach that figure
lol ... yeah consider uk & usa is whole world...
lol, people like you have to consider the rest of the world in situations like this remember, other people do live there and they do buy games...
But they are the biggest markets, along with Japan in which Uncharted 2 has not charted. Have you considered the possibility that the game hasn't sold 2.5m as there are no reputable sources to even suggest it had sold that much or come close it? No. If this was a negative article and cited no real sources, then you'd all be dismissing it
All of Europe minus the UK is still a bigger market than the UK alone.
bravo! You understood something Mr.Chief hasn't managed to grasp yet =P like Estranged said, Europe - UK >>>>> UK and U2 sold damn well in Europe =)
So you are telling me you find it hard to understand how it could sell 5 to 6 hundred thousand units around Christmas time? I'm confused at your confusion.
....in that everyone is happy even though the numbers for the site are gotten from vgcharts as the site even said that is where they got it from so since it puts a PS3 game in a good light then it is pretty damn close but if vgchartz shows something good for a 360 game then vgchartz is always way off and cant be trusted and has skewed numbers.
They've just been given such a hard time for not being 100% accurate. It would be almost impossible to track the exact sales of so many games and consoles. Even the publishers can't do it so I don't know why we expect VGChartz to do it. VGChartz is all we have for sales numbers, and it does a pretty damn good job of it. Shoot, even the NPD doesn't report exact sales as they don,t track Wall-mart or online retailers.
