As predicted 10m will be easy for Uncharted 4.



Does that make it the best selling Uncharted game?

By making it the default bundle, yes.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Holy fucking diggity dayum. Dat UC4 number. Sell through. Even though it was bundled in the holidays, it's still insane. 500k short of selling 20 million in 2016 though, shame, it would've been fun to see.

Maybe that was part of his prediction ;)

But yes, 10M probably unlikely without bundles.
