Uncharted 2 has sold 3.5 million worldwide

It was only ten days ago that we heard a whispering from Naughty Dog that Uncharted 2: Among Theives had surpassed 2.5 million sales, trumping the performance of its first PlayStaiton 3 game, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. However, the word now in from Sony Computer Entertainment America is that the game has done much better than we had originally thought.

According to Scott Rohde, VP for Product Development at SCEA, Uncharted 2 has now surpassed 3.5 million copies worldwide. That’s certainly impressive and shows that Naughty Dog’s high-quality game has really pervaded the masses. It also makes Uncharted 2 the PS3’s fastest selling first-party title. Rohde writes on the US PlayStation Blog:

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves has also garnered more than 150 other industry awards, has over 1.5 million online users worldwide, and has surpassed 3.5 million copies sold worldwide – the fastest selling first-party title for PlayStation. Not to mention, it’s established a new standard for games developed on the PS3 platform.

Good going Dawgs! A make.believe video of Naughty Dog’s co-president Christophe Balestra has also been posted, which you can enjoy below.

  1. Good job ND! This game is truly a masterpiece and every PS3 owner should at least try it out.

  2. wow uncharted is already catching up to MGS4, nice!

    i wonder what they’ll be up to next!

  3. Good job ND! You can take a break. =)

  4. Surprised its that amount already ill ring the cops now because someone’s going to get raped by sony

  5. 3.5 million already?!?! Awesome!

  6. I hope that this game continues to sell and eventually outsells MGS4. Nothing against MGS4, it was my favorite game till U2 came along. I just feel that U2 deserves as many sales as possible after all the hard work that went into the title.

  7. Yeah Good Job Naughty DOg for such a great game XD 3.5M is alot

  8. Nice?. This just means we can expect a bigger and better Uncharted 3 (Or something on the psp) xD..

    You think Uncharted 2 will surprass MGS4 lifetime sales?.

  9. @Dearmer_Lion: of course, its been out for less than 6 months and already has 3.5mil sales while MGS4 just recently got 5mil

  10. although its a good number, but still 35 mln ps3 worldwide and ps3 best offering is at 3.5 mln,what are rest of 31.5 mln ps3 users doing with their console

  11. @taus90: dood you cant say that, even tho halo sold like what? 9 million (or 6?) there are MANY more 360s out there….

    3.5 is a damn good number and hopefully it surpasses MGS4 by the end of this year!

  12. U2 is awesome. No wonder it sold so well.

  13. Man I’m so off. I predicted in the forum that U2 will get 3.5 around the end of this year, but holy crap, in 4 months they’ve manage to sell so many copies.

    As someone who frequently used Home, I’ve run into many people who have little or even no trophies at all. Many people who buy PS3s are not hardcore gamers and may be perfectly content with something like LittleBigPlanet. The PS3 is also a fantastic blu-ray player and for a while, was probably one of the cheapest ways to be an early adopter of the HD era. Uncharted 2 is still pushing amazing numbers and will most likely have great sales throughout the span of the PS3’s life.

  15. yay im so excited since i am getting it soon. more people on online gameplay WOO HOO!!!!

  16. i agree this is my favourite game and are happy for naughty dog and i am currently trying to platinum it only at 39%. i do hope they make uncharted 3 like you guys said but i think they should make a new crach bandicute first that was my favourie ps2 game.

  17. @ george

    I think ND already sold the rights for Crash Bandicoot.

  18. And people said PS3 games don’t sell. 3.5 million is a shit load and any game dev would love to have there game sell this well, even multi plat games.

  19. ND, just keeping the good times rolling, now all they can do now is make U3 and make supass limitations, and then a new ip, relly proud of ND’s success

  20. Personally I think Uncharted 2 is overrated, but it’s nice to see some money rolling in for the franchise. Maybe now they can make an IP that I care about. πŸ˜›

  21. Well deserved.

  22. Good to see at least one exclusive selling well! πŸ˜‰

  23. ND must be so proud right now, winning so many awards and their game selling really good. Well deserved.

  24. 2 million ppl don’t play U2 online? wtf?

  25. Uncharted 2 deseres to have sold well as it is a awesome game and this makes sure we get another adventure soon πŸ™‚

  26. I think it will sell over 5 million copies.

    2 million people don’t play Uncharted 2 online. What is wrong with these people?

  29. @zach, only one PS3 exclusive?? What about MGS4, Gran Turismo Prologue, Resistance, LBP, Motorstorm, Uncharted 1, Killzone 2. All have sold more than 2 million worldwide.

  30. I really do need to pick this game up

  31. This game is worth the $60. Congrats to Naughty Dog! Can’t wait for the next game (but you guys deserve a break).

    I don’t know for sure the actual number but the last time I went on a couple of days ago, it said about 800,000 daily players for that day. It updates daily.

  33. Amazing numbers to an amazing game.
    I expect Uncharted 2 over time to sale 5M.
    Maybe in a week to two it will be at 4M.

  34. That is good news to hear that the new Uncharted 2 game sold so well. 3.5 million copies of a game sold is a lot for any game, so this is good for Sony that their exclusive title did so well.
