I wasn't aware of such a deal, but in my world, a bundled sale, is a bundled sale, is a sale. Forza 2, for example, was a pack-in title with the 360 at one point, but I won't discredit what it did because of that. Wii Sports? Same thing. A sale is a sale.

Because it wasn't the case.
I got my PS4 with Uncharted 4, yes, but I could have gotten it without is just as well, I just found the deal to be better for a game I wanted, if it was the CoD bundle for example, I would have gotten only the PS4.

Some people are mixing a good bundle with a mandatory bundle like the Wii had for Wii Sports, you literally had to get it if getting a brand new Wii, for years.

Well, this are the December sales for America:

PS4 - 1.568m
    Uncharted 4 PS4 Slim 500GB Bundle - 1.2m 
    PS4 Pro - 238k (480k LTD)

 

Just because you could buy a few older Ps4's not bundled with Uncharted 4 doesn't change that Sony only released PS4 Slims with Uncharted for quite some time. 

And even with Halo 3's heavy bundling, this was never the case for Halo 3 that people had pretty much no othe choice for some months. 

So, how many of these people from that month alone and only from that region got Uncharted 4 who wouldn't have bought it otherwise? 800k maybe? Add other regions, the November and so on and you get millions of "sales" not really wanted. 

It's just how it is, Uncharted 4 was for some month pretty much part of every sold Slim and I doubt that more than maybe 20% of these people would have bought the game if it wasn't bundled.

But how can you come up with those numbers? Sure there are always SOME who have not go tthat bundle if given the choice but to say you doubt more than 20% so 800k were "unwanted" UC4 sales...why? What is your logic behind that statement? I mean yes sales rose with the bundle there is no denying that. But it was consistently selling well before the bundle. And before the Holidays. So what makes you feel that 800k peope didn't want it? That number just seems extremely high.



The absence of evidence is NOT the evidence of absence...

Halo 3 is undertracked. According to 343i, it has sold over 14.5M copies. That makes it the second best-selling non-Nintendo first-party title ever after Gran Turismo 3. Unless its legs are absolutely insane (being the de facto bundled title for the PS4 for a good long while could help), Uncharted 4 probably won't pass Halo 3.

As I figured. 12.2m is far too low. LTD: 15m for Halo 3, 12m for Uncharted 4. Reasonable guesses. People need to remember the heights Halo reached last gen. I don't think ND will reach that with Uncharted. The Last Of Us, on the other hand, has a better shot.

As funy as this may sound, sony's issue is that it has too many games. 

In a few weks horizon wil probably get its own bundled console and uncharted 4 will no longer be bundled. Then towards the end of the year we will get GTS or somethig else. maybe veen destiny, RDR2...etc.



Halo 3 is undertracked lmao



Probably not.



I think it will, because of bundling.  Almost all of the PS4s where I live are sold with a physical copy of Uncharted 4 included.



As long as there are bundles and if the game gets a price cut, I do think it will surpass Halo 3.
