I know we get pal chart topics but this is pretty huge.

It’s both the first and final new adventure to arrive on PS4 for developer Naughty Dogs’ flagship series (although the remastered trilogy came to PS4 in October last year). In terms of debut week sales ‘Uncharted 4’ is by far the most successful launch in the series beating ‘Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception debut week by 66%

Well deserved, the game is utterly fantastic but it's also not a surprise based on the amount of marketing they actually did for it.

Not surprised it was the biggest. Surprised it was the biggest by that margin given digital ratios these days though. Wonder if it hit 250k W1 inc. digital?

Well deserved. Best game I've played in a while. Loved everything about it. Even the magic rope 😎

What's even crazier is that they both launched around the same day of the week. Tuesday for Uncharted 4 and a Wednesday for Uncharted 3.

It was inevitably going to hit blockbuster numbers coming of the back of The Last of Us and Sony's intense marketing push. Regular TV adverts, Champion's League pitch side adverts, all over billboards and busses in Manchester and presumably every other major city. Add to that it has received unanimous critical acclaim. It's a brilliant game and I just can't wait for The Last of Us 2.

YAY!

Awesome news, this game and the genre in general (been very poor up until now this gen) needed this success, this is extremely important not only to Uncharted but to this genre as a whole.
