This week with black friday, Uncharted 3 sold 168k bringing the total global sales to 5.1 million.

Gears of War 3 was not in the top 100 this week with black friday and the total global sales is at 5.64 million.

 

Will Uncharted 3 pass Gears of War 3 in total global sales?  I think after the Christmas holiday the total sales are going to be extremely close.

Yes, it is inevitable.

Gears 3 seems to be selling very little these days. While Uncharted 3 is of course putting amazing numbers (albeit due to bundles mainly). It should pass it soon, maybe even by the end of the year. It's only 500k units behind. If it keeps doing these 100k+ weeks, then it'll pass it by the end of the year. If not, then it'll pass it by early 2013 at the latest.

Smart business move by Sony to get the Uncharted fanbase as large as possible, especially as we transition to next generation. Thre's going to be a lot of Uncharted owners/fans in 2013. An Uncharted 4 at the PS4 launch would attract a lot of gamers.

Probably gonna bundle its way by.

Although Gears should/could get a boost from the release of Judgment.

uncharted was selling A LOT before bundling, it sold well over a million units this year before the bundles even started. uncharted was gonna pass with out without the bundles, the bundles will just make the inevitable happen quicker

Indeed it was. But I'd make the guess that the current sales are due to bundles (over 50% of the sales).

Fixed that for ya. See, bundles are evrybodies friend. Sony does it too :)



___________

Pretend Exclusive: A 3rd party multiplat, that releases for multiple consoles in the same window, in which all press showings and marketing are catered to only one console. Exclusive console bundles, being the lead platform, as well as timed exclusive/exclusive  betas and game content also strengthen the claim. The final effect is that the uninformed gamer will be convinced that the version primarily advertised is the only and/or best place to experience the game.

X1: Titanfall, COD: AW.    PS4: Watch Dogs, Destiny

Xbox E3 Exclusives: Halo MCC, Crackdown 3, Phantom Dust, Scalebound, Dance Central Spotlight

It's all about legs and who has them.

Before the PS3 everyone was nice to me :(

What PS3 bundles are out in the wild now? I assume the Black Friday bundle is pretty much gone, so is it back to being the AC3 and UC3 versions as the principle bundles?

A quick look at Amazon makes it seem so, at least for the time being, although I did notice this bundle: "250GB PS3 System, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, the Ratchet and Clank Collection, Media/Blue-Ray Disc Remote Control and $20 AIV Credit". Anyone know if that's new?

Regardless, as long as UC3 is in one of Sony's primary packages, I can't help but think it will overtake Gears 3 pretty quickly.
