Week by Week Sales

Week 1

176, 580

 

Week 2

Week 3

.............

 

Week 4

.............

 

Total: 176, 580

 

I think it is a pretty good start. Uncharted 1 didn't sell nearly this much until its third week and its still more than LittleBigPlanet, and just keep in mind this is the first in the series and it didn't get the best reviews so we can't compare to something to LBP2 or Uncharted 3.

 

Post your thoughts.

That's good, I really want this to be successful. With success comes expansion, and with expansion comes increased lifespan. Think about it, one day we might have 30+ characters, 1v1 matchmaking,  and maybe some sort of weighted knock-out stock matches (Akin to SSB). Smiley Happy

It was for 4 days in the US and 2 days in the UK. Not a week.
When in doubt, freak 'em out.

These are sales numbers through the 24th.  Most sales figures for games take a week to get out.

I though they'd count up the figures literately a week after release.

Yeah, that'd make sense, but they count them on Fridays for some reason.  Also, it's not Sony counting them up, it's an independent company, so these aren't altered numbers.  After a day in the UK and four in the US, it's sold 170K, which is actually pretty **bleep** good compared to what I expected.

 

And if I may throw one more comment out here, don't forget that this game is on PSN, as well.  With PSN being an increasingly-popular medium for sales, PSAS's sales may be even higher overall.

So we can conclude that by no means is this game doing bad in sales. It doesn't even account for a whole week of sales and digital sales, and this is the first game in the series. It's not a sequel where you know what you are going to get like buying Uncharted 2 because you liked Uncharted 1, so I guess Sony wasn't lying when they said they were happy with the sales.

With the launch window it had (the same day as Hitman, a week after CoD, etc, for PS3 gamers; the same week as the WiiU and a week after Halo 4, for those of us that are multiplatform gamers), I expected pretty poor sales. However it's doing much better than I anticipated, and as of right now I can safely guarantee a sequel, although I'd rather wait until the second week's sales figures come out to see if it holds up well. Right now I'm impressed. Overall (not counting Cross-Buy as both PS3 and Vita sales, and theorizing digital sales based on what we usually see), I'd say PSAS is easily around 250K sold within five total days of sales (four for the US, and one for the UK).
