Uncharted 4 moved 2.7 million units in its first week


Drake's Fortune, indeed

PlayStation doesn't have to go play an Uncharted game if it wants to find untold riches; it just has to turn to the revenue from the most recent title in the series. After just one week, Nathan Drake's newest adventure is off to a great start.

Sony revealed Uncharted 4: A Thief's End's first week sales statistics on the PlayStation Blog. According to sell-through data for both physical and digital versions, 2.7 million copies of Uncharted 4 were moved in the game's first seven days on shelves. That makes it the fastest-selling PlayStation 4 first-party game ever in North America -- a statistic that makes sense when you consider that Uncharted 4 is likely the most prolific exclusive release on PS4 to date.

However, that figure probably isn't enough to make Uncharted 4 the most immediately-successful of the Uncharted installments. In 2011, Sony shipped 3.8 million copies for Uncharted 3's release date. It's unknown how many of those sold-through in the first week, but Sony would've had to wildly miss its prediction to not clear 2.7 million sales. Drake's just a man who's accustomed to treasures turning up everywhere he goes.
