Uncharted bigger franchise than Gears of War?

Yeahhh ^_^

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G LEGS. Epic

Most definitely bigger.

What the.... how did the recent spike occur? Game of the year editions?

Needless to say, they are neck to neck. Which is pretty impressive since I always thought there was no PS3 exclusive that could match Gears or halo other than GT.

Ultimately, Uncharted and GT are complementary to Gears and Halo. Should continue to reinforce the myth that MS exclusives are "miles" ahead of Sony's. :)

Thanks to some strategic bundling and continued individual sales, it should clear the record for the series and be a comparable seller to the Gears franchise from here on out. I personally don't mind which ever one is higher, it's good to have these franchises for each system.

well, its not just a good game, its a damn good game.

Oh look, it's been 11 minutes and still nobody has dismissed this as an effect of bundling.

Plenty of games are bundled with the PS3. People buy the Uncharted 3 one because they want to own Uncharted 3.

Anyway, good news for a great franchise.

@Mantlepiecek Massively Bundled.

Congrats on so many people playing Uncharted.  Great series



Both games are my favourite. I really hope that the next Gears of War comes to PS4 as I don't have any intention to buy Microsoft's next console.

Bundles if I'm not mistaken, it had a massive increase over the holiday period as a result.

Still, Uncharted 3 is trending above Uncharted 2 and was prior to the bundles.

It's about a 5.5-6m selling franchise now that is still showing growth. I think the series has far exceeded most posters expectations (not that posters expectations are necessarily any measure of success). Still, after Drakes Fortune I don't think anyone thought Uncharted could rival Gears.



A thing of beauty, strength, and grace lies behind that whiskered face.
