Uncharted 3 vs Gears of War 3

Uncharted 3
Gears of War 3

The 2 big juggernaut 2011 exclusives.

Which will sell more lifetime?

Uncharted 1 sold 3.5 million, and Uncharted 2 sold 4.42 million.

Gears of War 1 sold 6.13 million, and Gears of War 2 sold 6.14 million.

Uncharted 3 is definitely a big underdog compared to Gears of War 3.  BUT Uncharted 3 at the time of its release will have (for a PS3 exclusive) unparalleled hype.  I think Uncharted 3 will outdo Uncharted 2 by at least a million.  And unlike other PS3 releases that don't usually do well in the US, Uncharted 3 will have the biggest sales support (likely biggest opening) from the US. 

Gears of War 2 despite bigger advertising drive/hype/ didn't outsell the 1st Gears of War until a month ago.  I wouldn't be surprised if Gears of War don't quite outsell the previous Gears of War.

So what's the question here? Which one will sell the most first week? The most lifetime? Whose butt is the cutest?



Don't know what i am answering sir.

EDIT : Oh i see. I am going to give it to Gears of War 3, Uncharted 3 will be weaker in the critic acclaimz than uncharted 2 but it will go on to sell a million more maybe. Either way, the only way it will beat Gears of War 3 is with legs.



I believe Saleswise I think that Gears will take it. Uncharted 3 will be the most critically acclaimed. Neither will be a disappointment by any means. I'm expecting both will sell at least 4 million (2-3 million for both at least by year end) and both will be at least 90 on Metacritic.

Sorry. I meant to type 90 in the first place so I just said "at least" instead.

Gears of War 3 wins. 

We're going by who has the longest name right?

Seriously though, I'm pretty sure Gears of War will win sales wise.  The game is looking to be a big improvement over 2 and will have a large advertising campaign.  I don't see Gears or Uncharted selling loads more than their predecessor, they should sell about equal.

OH YOU!!!!

Its shortest name silly rabbit ^_^



Well the hype for both games is huge but I see what you mean there, Uncharted 3 probably would get a rise with sales due to critical acclaim of previous titles, however we have to consider piracy in the PS3 now. I can see Gears of War 3 doing less spectacular than it's predecessors. Halo's sales is probably a proof to that. Still big but ain't what it used to be.

Actually....

Uncharted: Drake's Deception wins for longest name...at least between the two. :/

Halo launched with the original Xbox and is on it's 4th game and is a FPS not a TPS.  Their sales have nothing in common.  Gears is new this gen and its second game outsold its first.  Their is zero evidence that shows that Gears 3 sales will decline.  Plus, since Gears 3 is the end of the series (at least the main series) Epic is going to go all out.

Gears 3 I think. I'm surprised so many people went with Uncharted 3. Honestly it wouldn't have even entered my mind to pose this question given there's such a huge gap in sales even between UC2 and Gears 1.
