Uncharted 2: Second Fastest Selling PS3 Exclusive

uncharted2amongthievesq3The highly anticipated sequel to one of the best action/adventure games to date, put up quite some impressive numbers it’s first week on the shelf. Reports indicate Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, moved approximately 836,000 units world wide during it’s first week. That earns it the No. 2 spot as the fastest selling PS3 exclusive, a spot formerly held by Killzone 2, which managed to move 770,000 units it’s first week. Both Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2 put up some solid numbers, however still remaining in the No. 1 spot for the fastest selling PS3 exclusive is none other than last years killer app Metal Gear Solid 4, which managed to sell an incredible 1.7 million units it’s launch week.

What makes Uncharted 2’s first week sales so impressive is that it managed to out sell its predecessor’s first week sales 6 to 1. The original Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, only sold approximately 134,000 units it’s launch week, and only about 32,000 of those being in NA. Even with the disappointing first week sales, Drake’s Fortune still has sold approximately 2.6 million copies life to date, pretty impressive for an “at the time” brand new IP.

Regardless of sales, Uncharted 2 is one of the best games of this generation, so if you have not picked it up yet, I strongly recommend you do. I have no doubt that Uncharted 2 will be considered by many as game of the year(currently is for me).
