UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves By the Numbers

Evan Wells's Avatar + Posted by Evan Wells on Oct 08, 2009 // Co-President, Naughty Dog

We’re just over a week since the UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves demo became available to everyone with access to the PlayStation Network, and the numbers are staggering:

  • Total Number of games played – 1,217,424
  • Total Number of Kills – 92,110,787
  • Total Number of Treasures Captured – 1,860,645
  • Total Amount of Money Earned – $38,841,367,350
  • Total Time Played – 9,905 days (or 27+ years!)

The demo is currently #1 out of the top 5 demo first-week downloads to date, and is on a trajectory to become the most downloaded demo on PSN, ever. You can add to that number right now by visiting the PlayStation Store.

Hey,

Nice numbers, the demo’s worth it. :)

By the way, I’ll say this again, but PLEASE bring some Fortune Hunter Editions to Europe. I’m from France and guess what? You have a lot of fans here! Leaving us out like this is quite bitter. :(

Hey Evan,
I have been enjoying the Beta and am definitely buying this game on Tuesday but I, and many others I have seen are having some trouble on the Naughty Dog website. It does not let me log in to see stats.

PSN Ticket error. Is there anything I can do to see my stats?

I like how the picture is from co-op mode. Which is the mode that earns the most money.

Pepsi? I’m a Coke man myself. As long as there are no in-game advertisements. ;)

Wow!!! Amazing figures!!! Congratulations Naughty Dog this is truly great, can’t wait to play the full game next week.

G4 also gave U2 a perfect score. But thy have removed themselves from contributing to Metascores due to score conversion.

But their old scores are still recorded for previous games so if a “fair” comparison is what you want, technically Uncharted 2 has 18 perfect reviews from Metacritic :p

Not that it matters. Amazing game.

How good Atomika14? I didn’t manage to travel across the Atlantic ocean to be there:(

+ Sindred on October 8th, 2009 at 9:18 am said:

I know it’s not a big deal, but I hope some obscure web site doesn’t take the score below 9.0 just to be different. What I have played of the game, including the coop beta, which showcases the cover system working against AI,has been brilliant and smooth, and some smaller sight, either to be different, or paid off (which I know happens) might take it below 9.0. Not like it will change anyone’s mind with 17 perfect scores, many of them not coming from a PS-related sight or magazine, which throws out the bias claims.

+ Velzorn on October 8th, 2009 at 9:18 am said:

The multiplayer online demo is outstanding and addictive, obviously. I can’t wait to get a hold of this amazing game.

I really hope there ends up being a Uncharted 2 dynamic theme, soon. I really would love the start menu to be a dynamic theme.

Again I can’t wait for the game!

i like Pepsi,so bring it Sony.how about character cans?that would be cool!

I bet Naughty Dog are pissing themselves right now with all this positive flow of reviews and stuff coming in. You guys did a phenomenal job with the demo and judging by the reviews, this is going to be amazing. I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

Best of luck to Naughty Dog, I hope this game sells millions…you guys deserve it.

I just wish I could buy this game early, like you guys allowed to happen with the first game.

I’ve turned 3 xbots to the Darkside. I planted the seed a couple of years ago with Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, which still stands as the best gaming experience this generation in my mind…at least until Oct. 13th!

Going to EBGames after work with 2 of them to trade in their collections for a Slim and Uncharted 2 Pre-order. Good Job Naughty Dog! Not one other studio could claim a conversion with my friends until you.

Cheers!

I know it’s a multiplayer demo, but I’m not playing it. I don’t want to ruin Uncharted 2 at all. I haven’t even read any reviews yet, good thing to because I heard the Gamespot review has a spoiler in it.

gotta admit that the demo is kick arse!!! Just like playing the full game Naughty Dog but it is sure to net you tons of sales for sure.


91

+ CondorMcG on October 8th, 2009 at 10:46 am said:

Joint 2nd best metacritic score of the generation, beaten by GTA IV, tied with Super Mario Galaxy.

That means its the best PS3 exclusive, better than any Xbox exclusive, up there with the best games of all time.

I opted to not enjoy the incredible demo because the game is so close. :)
Still pre ordered, something I never do. :)
