You Tell Us: Can Uncharted 3 outsell Gears of War 3?
Can Nathan Drake and co finally sell more copies than Marcus Fenix and his money-bandanna?
We love the Uncharted series. We love Nathan Drake, and the fact that he’s seemingly a loveable rogue when in fact he’s killed more people than World War II and salmonella combined.
We also love the sales of the series: according to the boys and girls over at VGChartz (we know, we know) the series has sold around 8.39 million units world wide. Pretty good, no?
Obviously that’s a nice haul, but it’s one that’s eclipsed by the Xbox 360 franchise Gears of War, which has sold around 12.6 million units.
Now, this isn’t a discussion regarding the respective quality of the games: both are awesome, even if we do favour Uncharted because it has far more personality. The real question is, with the PlayStation gaining ground on the Xbox 360′s lead, can Uncharted 3 take the series to the next level, sales wise?
Personally, we anticipate that Uncharted will sell by the bucketload this year, and break the 5 million units barrier. 10 million? Probably not. As ever, let us know what you think in the comments. Best response wins the satisfaction that their response was the best.
