Noooo -_- 27 15.98%
 
Maybe :/ 23 13.61%

I would love to see gears of war go cross platform, then I could play it online.

This is a good thread to look back on now:

Am I the only one disappointed in Uncharted 2's 800k?

There was a lot of doubt about the future success of the franhcise.

You can easily see when the bundling started, but you can't expect a Turkish thread to be fair and mention that.

 I myself was thinking of the GOTY edition. Furthermore, I believe UC3 was bundled as early as the games release, and Gears 3 also had bundling. 
I'm not a sales person. Thats why you can't expect that explanation for a spike in sales in a Turkish thread, nothing biased and prejudiced to it.



I just wanted to say that two of those million copies are mine, and soon to be a 3rd too (waiting for Explorers to go down in price. Bitch is taking its fucking time XD STOP BUYING THEM GAMERS).



i think one of the reasons why uncharted is selling better per week a year after release compared to gears games (yes bundles sold a lot of uncharted end of last year but it is also selling better weekly without bundle) is that uncharted is much more a singleplayer game and gears a co-op game.

seriously, i bought all gears games day one and would do the same with future releases  but i am not sure if i would buy all of them day one without friends also doing it. gears is one of the best games for co-op and you won't buy it when your friends already stopped playing it.

for me, uncharted franchise is better in singleplayer but it's not as if you have to buy it day 1 because of your friends or something which means it won't sell as much at release but it will sell as much over the years because less people buy gears for singleplayer.

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.

it was bundled with the 250gb super slim this holiday

UC3 and Gears 3 both had launch bundles. UC2 was actually bundled after launch with the premium PS3 SKU of its time.

And yes the huge spike is due to the GOTY bundle (and UC1 and UC2 got a similar bundle during the last holiday and saw a similar boost).

I'm not saying that it's impossible for UC3 to eclipse Gears 3 at one point (without bundles) but you could at least ask yourself why UC3 jumped to these hights lately and do a bit of research before creating such a thread.

Threads like this will only lead to copycats making threads about Kinect Adventures is a bigger franchise than Gran Turismo or other similar crap which we don't need.



I've said it before and I'll say it again. This is an unfair comparison. Here in North America, Uncharted 3 has been heavily bundled for the past year. It's the first thing I see when I walk into a video game store.



This gotta be a Turkish Thread. It is nice to see one of the best games of this gen selling so amazing. But out of all games out how did you come to compare Uncharted with Gears of War? Those games are completely different.
