Sony first-party action title dislodges Call of Duty 4

Sony’s Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune has replaced Activision’s Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare at the top of ELSPA/ChartTrack’s official PS3 top ten.

The action title debuted in second position last week, but has leapfrogged COD4 at the top – no doubt helped by some splendid specialist press reviews.

Activision’s shooter lies in second, followed by EA’s Need For Speed ProStreet in third – the second week in a row the game has taken the slot.

Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed moves up from fifth to fourth, doing a straight swap with EA’s FIFA 08, which drops one place.



The full top ten for the week ending December 15th reads:

1) Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune Sony
2) COD4: modern Warfare Activision
3) Need For Speed: ProStreet EA
4) Assassin’s Creed Ubisoft
5) FIFA 08 EA
6) WWE SmackDown! Vs Raw 2008 THQ
7) Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 Konami
8) Singstar Sony
9) Medal Of Honor: Airborne EA

Yes, I'm not surprised. I think the early release poor sales were simply down to lack of availability in the high street - couldn't find one for love nor money in the first week of release.

What you put in caps is STUPID!
I don't see many people wanting it to fail.
I only own a 360 and want this game to succeed. The industry needs more games like this than more generic First Person Shooters.

you are one of a minority,when sales figures were released for last week and uncharted was not at number one we had all the xbots and trolls in here calling it a flop etc so to call my comment stupid with doubth doing any reserach on the subject is a bit rich.

I've seen very few people say they want Uncharted to flop, but I've seen a great many people more than disappointed with it's sales in NA and Japan. There are many great games coming out that are selling horribly, and I think it's starting to get a lot of people out there more than a little depressed. I can't blame em :(

This article does sound like good news, but we really can't know for sure without numbers. COD 4 could have simply sold a lot less and given up it's position to Uncharted by default. Uncharted could have sold less as well, which is definitely not a good prospect!

Ie.
Week 1 - COD 4 100k, Uncharted 40k
Week 2 - COD 4 30k, Uncharted 35k

I really hope this isn't the case though, the game looks like a lot of fun, and people should be out there supporting it.

I just hope it sells enough for Naughty Dog to make a decent profit otherwise they will stop developing these kind of games and just stick with multi console FPS .

[QUOTE="mickice, post: 0]Yes, Call of Duty 4 has 'Game of The Year' status, Drake doesn't.[/quote]

I and some others would disagree.

So this chart is only in the UK? And only for PS3 games? And it doesn't give a number? Eh, I'm still a bit worried about Drake's sales.

I also don't agree. I have COD4 (my first console FPS) and although great, I had more fun with the Uncharted demo and will pick up the game.

COD4 was also released last month, so who cares.

Shhhh, let the other members have their moment :lol:

Addition: Uncharted was the top selling software for most of the week on play.com -- the UK's biggest online retailer.

I fail to see why Drake would not be up for Game of The Year.

Ahhh - you think it shouldn't be because it's a PS3 exclusive.

It's still an excellent title.

[QUOTE="TH3 GAM3, post: 0]I'm so happy for ND. So many people was complaining last week when they saw it at number 29.[/quote]


It was 13th this week and 23rd last week. The reason for the bump is because it was only out for 1 day during its debut week, while it was out for 7 days, duh, last week. I think it's going decrease hugely this week though.

I fail to see why Drake would not be up for Game of The Year.

Habe you played CoD4, Mario Galaxy, BioShock, God of War 2, Crysis, The Orange Box, Mass Effect, Zelda Phantom Hourglass, Metroid Prime 3?
