Uncharted 3 Marks Biggest Launch for the Franchise

by William Schwartz


Naughty Dog’s recently released PlayStation 3 Exclusive masterpiece is doing really well according to recent reports.  Early sales figures suggest that the game has broken all records for the Uncharted franchise, in the sales department.  With first week sales opening up with 1.1 million copies sold, these initial numbers put Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception firmly ahead of the last game in the franchise: Uncharted 2: Among Theives.

The strong launch of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception puts the game in good company among PlayStation 3 exclusives, with only Gran Turismo 5, Metal Gear Solid 4, and God of War 3 doing better in their opening weeks.

As it stands, gamers seem to be taking the stellar review scores to heart.  Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception is currently one of the highest rated games of the year, sitting with a “Critically Acclaimed” status and metascore of 93 on metacritic.
