Sony Says Uncharted 3 Sold 3.8 Million Units on Day One
Amid all the talk about release numbers flying around for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3 (not to mention the annoyingly confusing numbers released for Batman: Arkham City that don’t make clear whether they’re shipped or sold units), I forgot all about another huge-selling title being released last week: Uncharted 3.
Sony didn’t, though, because according to a press release issued by the publisher, Uncharted 3 moved 3.8 million units just on its first day of sales. Now, I haven’t seen the release myself, and after the Warner Bros. release that liberally exchanged the words “sold” and “shipped,” I won’t be burned again. Sony says Uncharted 3 is on-pace to being the best-selling game in the trilogy.
Here’s a substantiated fact, though: Uncharted 3 has been pulling down rave reviews, garnering a 90/100 from our own Ross Lincoln. So maybe almost 4 million Day One sales is something we can believe in. We’ll see.
