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. I’m still waiting for my copy to be delivered by Base.com. Am I part of those stats?

  2. Throughouly deserves it. Currently on chapter 7 of my Crushing playthrough and am still loving every minute of it. Still yet to give the online and co-op a good go though.

  3. fantastic. cannot wait till i get to play this later in the year

  4. TSA changed it to shipped because they *think* that is right. WTF?

    IGN spoke to Sony and got an answer: http://uk.ps3.ign.com/articles/121/1212156p1.html

    • And before anyone says it, I accept we haven’t had a perfectly definitive answer from Sony. But it’s best to deal with the information available or speak to the source rather than use a)assumptions or b) quotes from the most distrusted site in the gaming world.

  5. I guess if percentages are similar to Battlefield then this probably sold about half of the shipped amount, around 2 million. Still impressive figures though Sony should have made it clear what they meant from the beginning.

  6. Good numbers and well done ND, great game and highly deserving.
    However can’t say at any point during my playthrough I found myself thinking “You know what would make this game even better to me? Sales of x million”

  7. That is great news, keep up the good work Naughty Dog. They got my business with a preorder.
