It appears many gamers buckled in for Nathan Drake’s last hoorah, and one last time with Sully’s mustache as we know it. The sales include all physical and digital copies sold as of May 16th.
Further, for the North American region, Uncharted 4 is the fastest selling first-party game on the PS4 to date. To put this number into perspective, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception shipped 3.8 million copies on launch day. This is not to be confused with 3.8 million copies sold on launch day It should also be noted Uncharted 3 shipped when the PlayStation 3 had already been on the market for five years, while the PlayStation 4 has yet to reach even three years on the market.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End released on May 10th, 2016 exclusively on PS4. Upon release it garnered an impressive 93 on Metacritic — making it the second highest Metacritic score in the series — behind only Uncharted 2: Among Thieves score of 96.
Naughty Dog could turn Lollipop Chainsaw into gold at this point. In terms of developers, they’re right up there with the best, and are certainly the best in the business in regards to storytelling and spectacle. I played Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End — teared up because how good it was. Played it again — still felt empty after its completion — so I played it another time. I fully expect it to win many GOTY awards come December.
