25 blockbuster games Uncharted 4 outsold in a week

Chris Stead 27 May 2016 NEWS


The latest Uncharted game has been a huge win for Sony and the PlayStation 4, and it’s outpacing some big competition.

In my opinion, the Uncharted series provided the best experiences on offer in the last generation of gaming. Uncharted 2, in particular, I felt was the perfect example of everything that era in video games was trying to achieve – a seamless blend of Hollywood storytelling and intuitive gameplay where the spectacle and the detail was beyond peer. Clearly I wasn’t alone – the arrival of the fourth and final game in the series on PlayStation 4 has been a huge success – read our review - with Sony reporting that it sold 2.7 million units in its first week alone.

But just how good is 2.7million in a week? To put that number into context, we thought we’d take a look at the big name games on the PlayStation 4 that have been unable to reach that number over their entire lifetimes. It quickly puts into scale how important Uncharted as a brand has become for Sony. Please note: for multiformat games, we have focused solely on their sales on PS4 to create a like-for-like comparison.
