Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection beaten by Halo 5 in U.S.

Sales of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection in the U.S. have disappointed following its launch in early October, with the three-game bundle coming in at a lowly ninth place in the software Top Ten.

Despite being unquestionably one of the biggest PlayStation 4-exclusive titles out this year, Nathan Drake’s remastered fortune hunting antics were beaten soundly by the likes of Halo 5: Guardians and Yoshi’s Wooly World on Wii U. That’s despite widespread critical acclaim and the fact the game has been out since October 7, giving it an edge over some of the competition, which launched later in the month.

Sony’s PS4 was outsold by Xbox One for the first time in months during October, with Halo 5 no doubt contributing to a huge rise in sales for Microsoft’s system. Nonetheless, Sony did drop the price of PS4 last month, though even that wasn’t enough to defend its position as the number one selling console. Still, Microsoft’s got its work cut out for it if it wants to catch up to its lead rival in terms of global sales.

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection includes high-definition remasters of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. Also included is a Photo Mode, while the forced motion controls present in the first game have been removed. The collection does not, however, feature the multiplayer components of the second and third games. Read our full review of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection on PS4.

While the game didn’t have much impact in the U.S. in terms of physical sales, Sony confirmed that it topped the PlayStation Store chart in Europe and gave PS4 its 8th biggest launch of the year. Check out the full Top 10 games for October 2015 below.
