Uncharted 3 Sold Nearly 4M Copies On Day One

According to a recent SCEE press release (as flagged by VG247,) Naughty Dog blockbuster, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, sold 3.8 million units in its first day alone.

To put that into perspective, Epic’s Gears of War 3 managed to fly past the 3 million milestone on launch week, Battlefield 3 having recently shifted 10 million in the same period of time across all three available platforms.


To verify, the statistic is not for how many units were shipped to retailers, it’s not how many were actually flogged to you, the gamers.



  1. Great news and thoroughly deserved. No game has better pacing imo.

  2. Really? o_o. I caught the “trilogy syndrome”, where the hype gets lower and lower after every chapter of the saga, and I’ll get this when it costs half. Thought many people would have thought like me, glad to see that the game sold incredibly nevertheless..

  3. See internet haters ‘we’ i.e ‘PS3 owners’ do play games as well lol

    + Gears of war 3 only did 3 million in its 1st week? wow

  4. is this Shipped to retailers or bought copies of customers? Because some sites says shipped and some visa verce.

    • Still a very amazing opening either way and have almost sold what UC2 have sold LTD.

  5. I can tell you now it didnt sell 3.8 million day one. That’s definitely shipped numbers
