Nathan Drake’s swan song sells big in its first week.
PlayStation has officially revealed that Uncharted 4 sold 2.7 million copies in its first week. According to the official blog post, the figure includes both digital and retail copies of the game. PlayStation is also reporting Uncharted 4 to be the best-selling PS4 game to-date in the North America region.
In March, Naughty Dog revealed that Uncharted 4 would be delayed one final time to May 10 “meet the considerable worldwide demand.” While this sounded like marketing spin at the time, it seems Sony was right to anticipate such high demand.
For those who are out of the loop, Uncharted 4 is currently sitting at a 93 on Metacritic.With the insane level of detail and endearing story, Uncharted 4 has rightfully earned each and every sale they’ve earned this far.
