Forums - Sales Discussion - Americas up(Nov 5)

So UC3 week and 360 gets more of a boost than PS3, uhhh ok? Makes perfect sense.



Around the Network

Not sure why people thought uncharted 3 would push a significant amount hardware over the normal increase? Does seem a tad low though.

Software numbers for Uncharted 3 are probably correct, i think the main reason why so much peoples expectations were considerably higher was because of the pre-order charts (which was horribly off for Uncharted 3). At least that was one of the main reasons i had Uncharted 3 at a 700k opening week in Americas. Hype on the internet forums can also be very misleading, with the larger gaming community and more casual audience showing different levels of excitement for different games, obviously.

i guess Uncharted 3 will remain a 5 - 6 million lifetime seller. I really thought it could push above that figure. I wonder whats holding it back, it definitely has appeal for a wider audience.

Why is the Wii version of Madden outselling the PS3 version of Madden? o.O Doesn't the PS3 have exclusive advertising rights or something?

I asked this last week and don't think I ever got an answer.  I know it isn't really a good source for sales, but the ranks on Amazon are

#33 360
#37 PS3
#133 Wii

Gamestop, Walmart, and Target also shows the PS3 version above the Wii.  It doesn't make any sense.

Ps3's biggest exclusive doesn't even compare to the 360s biggest exclusive first week sales. Expected but surprised it wasn't higher. Hell 360 owners almost bought more copies of battlefield 3 in its 2nd week then PS3 gamers support their biggest exclusive.


??

uncharted IS NOT sony's biggest exclusive

Gran Turismo is..

I thought it was implied but allow me to clarify. You can tell because I referred to Gears 3 as 360s biggest exclusive when its clearly Halo. 

Biggest exclusive "this year". Point still stands. 

yea now that you clarified "this year"



i also noticed that Kevin Butler didn't do an Uncharted 3 commercial

hmm i wonder why

I can say... undertracked... there are Uncharted 3 bundles in US... PS3 sales is always underestimated here.

But that's fine... always have adjustments.

Have to agree.  We have Uncharted 3 selling ~581K (which I also think is slightly undertracked given the pre-order numbers we had for), yet the normal holiday rise + UC3 bundles only gave the PS3 a 10K bump?  Not buying that for a sec. 

Though, I do have to say, I kinda like PS3 being undertracked.  Not only have I gotten used to it, but it also makes adjustment time so wonderfully enjoyable and sweet.

That must definitely be a mistake.  Must have accidently switched the PS3 and Wii numbers.



What happended to Halo: Reach to suddenly have it sell 61k this week? Typo, or did it get bundled or something?

Not that i'm complaining, have at em Halo :)

Those Battlefield 3 numbers make me sad.


Don't worry it's probably overtracked. Not by much probably but it's still not as close as it is to Uncharted 3. Although based judging previous intsallments after this holiday season is over this game shouldn't sell much

It happens. Never the less PS3 should get a fantastic boost in Europe. But just like last month they may be under tracking the PS3.
