Why are people expecting Uncharted to grow that much?


PS4 success, ND giantly good reputation after The Last of Us, 360 gamers that missed ND last gen and now are in PS4, yesterday beautiful trailer and name that suggests it's the last main entry in the franchise.
That's about it.



Around the Network
Name Metacritic First Week Lifetime
Halo 5 90 2,300000 8,000,000
Uncharted 4 95 1,900,000 7,600,000
Zelda U 95 1,200.000 4,200,000

halo will be good, but have weaker sales than normal due to xbox one not being as popular. 7.5-8.8 million. meta: 87-91

Uncharted will be huge. perhaps not reaching the score of U2 but close, and will be the best selling. i predict 6.5-8.5 million. meta: 92-96

Zelda will be massively over rated, it will fail to innovate and modernize anything, it will have the same tired and dated mechanics and tropes as its predessors from the 90's. but reviewers wil give it a pass because its a nintendo game. which are a protected class of games that dont get criticized for being dated on just about everything about their games. it will sell between 3.5-5.5 million . meta: 90-95

91 meta for Halo 5 too high. I expect 80-84. I have no faith in 343i to deliver a AAA game.



Halo will sell the best and Zelda will hold the highest score.
Uncharted will be in the middle ground.



Proud to be the first cool Nintendo fan ever

Number ONE Zelda fan in the Universe

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile

Considering that 343i is no bungie, I very much doubt that the next Halo will be anything gamers consider decent. I expect a metacritic score of 80-85. It's real value is 70-75, but we must also take into account Microsoft bribery which will influence a few scores.

Also, I doubt Halo 5 will sell above 5 million, since the core gamers have abandoned the Xbox platform.
Uncharted 4 numbers are within range.

What's with the negativity towards 343i and Halo? Uncharted doesn't get better as a game just because you try to downplay Halo you know ;). Also, there is nothing that says core gamers have gone one way or the other, we are only at the beginning of this generation, and Halo fans are some of the most dedicated fans around.

My guess is both will break 5 million with Halo slightly higher than Uncharted. Meta score will be slightly higher for Uncharted though, and both games will be great.

Gamers like you call it negativity, but sales analysts like me call it being blunt.

If I acted like a bling fanboy, I wouldn't be where I am today.



Uncharted and Zelda.

I've never cared for Halo, except Halo 2

Yet you fail to take into account that Halo 4 has sold well in range with all the other Halo games in the main series (not even counting digital sales) and that Halo MCC jumped straight to number one on Amazon. Also, great news for Watchdogs on PS4, but that doesn´t diminish the uccess of Titanfall on X1, it only means that these releases have really high attach rates on both consoles, only further pointing to both Uncharted, Zelda U and Halo 5 selling extremely well.

The point you try to make in regards to meta score... seriously a conspiracy thery? Or it could be that the Halo games are really good?

Halo 4 was riding off the successes of the previous Halo.

Gamers will remember the Halo 4 disaster when they see halo 5 at a game shop. Most will pass over it in favor of PS4 destiny.



XBone sales are really gonna have to pick up to meet these 8M and 9M predictions. Otherwise you guys are expecting some unprecedented attach ratio.
