Currently the uncharted series has amounted to over 17m units so far (as of april 2012)

And it's counterpart "gears of war" has sold 19m units (as of november 8th 2012)

My question is, which will end up selling more?

I'd say GeoW because it's already ahead and Judgment is coming.

It's Gears of War. A critically acclaimed, high scoring franchise. It will definitely do something.

bluray is scratchless, alot of the gears sales were repurchases because one touch on the sh!tty dvd disc can break the game, while taking a knife to a blu ray would still leave it in mint condition.

I'd guess Uncharted considering Sony is throwing a copy in with every Black Friday deal. The game also comes included with a controller pack, and of course the Uncharted Double pack is still for sale. I'd also imagine we are not far from an Uncharted Triple pack or Trilogy pack including UC3 GOTY. Sony is truly the master of milkage.

Gears 3 on the other hand has pretty much only sold individual copies. Where's the Gears Trilogy pack MS? Sometimes I really wonder what MS is thinking. They really need to learn from Sony. The holiday pack Xbox 360 that is out now should have Forza and Gears in it instead of Skyrim.

Uncharted sales reached 17 million? Wow, that's more than 5 million a piece!

I'm assuming 7 million UC2 -- 6 million UC3 and 4 million for UC1?

I thought PS3 exclusives didn't sell.. :p

Gears of War is also not bundled with 360 systems nearly as often as Uncharted is with PS3s. I believe every single Uncharted game has come bundled with PS3s for months at a time, and yet the only Gears bundle the 360 has ever seen was the Gears 3 Limited Edition bundle which cost $400.

Without a new Uncharted in the horizon (new Gears of War game though), and Gears already slightly ahead, it's kind of obvious isn't it? Unless we hear about Uncharted 4 at the VGA's or something and it's so amazing that Jesus ascends from the heavens with Allah and Buddha themselves just to play it and ensure a new world order of everyone buying it.

Or I guess if Judgement didn't do so well and Uncharted 4 got massive hype, that too. But right now, it's looking like Gears.

Gears, even though Uncharted is the better franchise. khoofia_pika
That is just your opinion. I personally think Gears are the better games. I have played all the UC games and I have no desire to ever play them again. They are fun games but not the type you want to play many times. I saw the cutscenes and I saw the cinematic events so no reason to go back. Gears on the other hand has imo much more enjoyable gameplay. On additional play throughs of Gears I know what is going to happen but the gameplay and the enemies are fun enough for me to want to play the games more then once. Uncharted's gameplay and enemies are not good enough for me to want to play through a entire game again.

Not on Europe it wasn't. There were console bundles with Gears 1 & 2, bundles with Gears 2 & *random game* and just the games bundle (Gears 1&2 again). Still haven't seen anything with Gears 3, but I'm sure it's coming eventually. Also IMO I don't think any game, with the exception of a few mega sellers (aka Halo, COD, GTA and maybe FIFA [in Europe only]) sell all that much when bundled with a console. I mean yeah, they sell, but if anything it's a small boost over the standalone game sales...

This Uncharted 3 PS3 bundle has been running in America since last November, and prior to that was the Uncharted 2 bundle, and before that the Uncharted 1 bundle. When you consider that, in America, the PS3 sells a couple hundred thousand units a month, that adds up.

Gears always tends to sell better simply because it has the better multiplayer. Uncharted multiplayer is great, no doubt, but just not as much as Gears.

They were competent in uc2 but borderline broken in the other console releases. I'd put G.A.'s gunplay in second place for the series.

It's Gears. MS will start the hype train a few weeks before release and then report franchise record numbers a few days later.

Hmmm, perhaps. But I still don't think they account for that many sales unlike the more famous system sellers. For example with Halo bundles or GTA bundles you know boosts in sales (in hardware) can be attributed to those single games alone.

The same can't really be said for Uncharted or even Gears.. they don't have the same strength. Unless Sony in America only provides 1 or 2 bundles during the year, there will always be more bundles claiming part of those sales and, of course, the console alone will sell the most.

Desmonic

Well, at least in America, Uncharted 3 has been bundled with the PS3 similar to how Wii Sports is bundled in with the Wii. It's not a special promotion, or a limited edition; it's just there, and like I said it's been bundled in since last November.

I think what's more important to notice is that Uncharted has almost sold as much as gears in a shorter amount of time, to a smaller fanbase. If only Cows supported more of the exclusives as enthusiastically.

To be fair though it´s four games against three and Gears still comes out on top,it will vastly extend it´s lead with the release of Judgement.

What's more important to notice than that is the fact that there's been an Uncharted 3 bundle on store shelves for the last year, and prior to that was Uncharted 2, and Uncharted 1.

When the PS3 sells 3-5 million in a year here in America it equals lots of sales for Uncharted.

In comparison this is the only Gears of War bundle we've seen in America (outside of any stores doing their own individual promotions)

gears-of-war-3-bundle.jpg

A very limited run of a special edition 360 which cost $400.

I'm willing to bet that, in terms of non-bundle sales, Gears of War outsells Uncharted 5 to 1.

Gears has sold more to date, I believe, and with Judgement coming soon... well there's your answer.

For me Uncharted has the better Single Player, save for the 3rd installment, I think Gears 3 was better than Uncharted 3 for the campaign.

But. Gears has better Multiplayer.

I love both franchises... equally.
