Just couple of more days till NPD releases so dont know whats the big deal. UC3 need to sell close to 1m atleast.

If the undertracked is in US... yes NPD will show that... but if it is in Europe or EMEAA???

PS. The staff wanted proof of what I was saying when I was banned ... and now?

You still have nothing?

For some users is nothing... for other is all... Sony said "twice the U2 fist week"... that's something (and not shipped) .

I think you not read all the news. I'm not talking about 13 million shipped or 3.8 million shipped... I'm talking about sales.

IndustryGamers: What were your initial sales numbers for the first week? Did this exceed Uncharted 2, and by how much? How did this map to your goals for the game?

Asad Quizilbash: As we reported, day one we SHIPPED over 3.8 Million copies of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. Week one SALES were double that of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, far exceeding our expectations.

 Still don´t believe U3 only did 47k in USA BF

Sony said U3 sold in the first week twice the U2 sold... so or U3 is undertracked here or U2 overtracked .

Or neither and they were using shipments, 3.8 / 1.9

“As we reported, day one we shipped over 3.8 Million copies of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. Week one sales were double that of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, far exceeding our expectations.”

This time they used different words for shipped and dales .

Yet in the same article they say they've sold over 13 million, and we know that isn't true.

If that the case "the DAY ONE sales were double that of  Uncharted 2" and not the "WEEK ONE".

Original source:

I can say when it is talking about shipped and sales .

PS. The staff wanted proof of what I was saying when I was banned ... and now?

They already said they shipped 3.8m on day one, they were specific about it. Which in 100% likelyhood, is more than double what U2 sold and shipped day 1 (1.9m)

What part of DAY =/= WEEK you didn't understood???

"Week one sales were double that of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves"

Or U3 is under, or U2 is over, or a little from both.

Or like I originally said, they're talking about shipments. Which is perfectly fesible. Day one/week = 3.8 or more. Day one/week U2 = 1.9 or less going by sales.



If that's the case, then why wouldn't Sony just say Day 1 instead of Week 1? If they ARE in fact talking about day 1 shipments of course.

That's what I'm thinking.  There's no point to talk about how much they shipped Day 1 and then go on to talk about how much they sold Week 1.  It would be redundant because both of those numbers would be the exact same.



Incredible week for XB360, very good for 3DS, Xmas resurrection for Wii. Huge Kinect performance for its 2nd BF, better than its 1st one. Only PS3 numbers look a little low...

Just Top40 SW Global and for the biggest national and regional markets is definitely too little, not even worth discussing during the Xmas holidays, when the large number of new releases cuts off too many big games even from the previously charted Top50.
