Uncharted series sells over 13 million units globally
Asad Quizilbash, product marketing manager for Uncharted 3 has revealed the sales of the Uncharted series in an interview with Industrygamers. He said that the series’ sales has surpassed over 13 million units globally and is attracting new gamers to the platform.
“We also shipped an Uncharted 3 PS3 Bundle for $299.99. You get the 320GB PS3, and a free copy of Uncharted 3. Sales of this bundle are exceeding ours and retailer’s expectations, showing that Uncharted 3 is bringing new consumers to the PS3 platform,” he said.
“Sold over 13 Million units globally.”
He also mentioned that the launch sales were twice that of Uncharted 2, and it is one of the most successful Sony first-party franchises ever. He didn’t say anything about a new Uncharted game, but we suspect it should hit soon for the next-gen Sony home console.
“As we reported, day one we shipped over 3.8 Million copies of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. Week one sales were double that of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, far exceeding our expectations.”
We are not sure of the breakdown, but it seems like Uncharted 1 sold 3.8 million units; Uncharted 2 – 5.0 million, and Uncharted 3 – 3.8 million. Of course, these are official numbers and Sony hasn’t updated the current numbers for each game yet.
