Off the charts

Exclusive PlayStation 3 title Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception has smashed sales expectations, selling a massive 3.8 million copies in its first day, according to Sony.

An estimated 55 million PS3s have been sold since the console was launched in 2006. If these are all in use (and they’re probably not) that means the game was a first-day purchase for 6.9% of PS3 owners, or one in 14. 

By way of comparison, EA recently announced that Battlefield 3 sold 5 million copies in its first week – across three platforms. Uncharted 2 sold 3.5 million copies in its first three months. 

Game Console will have a review of Uncharted 3 soon. In the meantime, check out this interview with Uncharted 3 visual effects wizard, Keith Guerette.
