Legend and especially Anniversary are much better games.
slipknotfan (on 26 June 2011)
nowhere near as good as legend!!!
AWESOM-O (on 17 March 2011)
theres dozens of other games that deserve more sales than this, shame, this game was horrible... Hope the reboot has promises

@Dark Odin, it was 15k of the Japanese sales that disappeared somehow, but now its back to 1m+
Dark Odin (on 09 April 2010)
what? back to 990k!

Awefully glitched game, bought it for a bargain, sold it immediately again.

3,000-4,000 every week -> million seller in ~5 weeks

Considering how cheap this is and how it's been one of the top selling PS3 games on amazon. I'm sure its over 1 million. Sony should make it a greatest hit
NSS7 (on 12 December 2009)
Hope it sold 1 million before next year. Right now PS3 has 46 million seller. Tekken 6, FFXIII and Mortal Kombat vs DC will sold 1 million before end of year. This will make it to 50. Now it sold 5k. 40k in 4 weeks is possble if it sold 10k average every week.

I just finished. Although there are some camera and detection problems, they weren't bad enough to prevent me to have a good time.
Rob6021 (on 10 November 2009)
Pretty good game, not even close to uncharted/U2 but don't let that deter you it's still a good game.
FootballFan (on 13 October 2009)
I think it could sell 1 million!
maverick40 (on 12 October 2009)
surprising sales!great game but was expecting less sales
FootballFan (on 24 September 2009)
Will hit 1 milliono
Dark Odin (on 18 September 2009)
good game, but the camera sucks...
zaMy (on 11 July 2009)
with the trophy patch and greatist hits edition coming, i think this game could hit 1million
TrueGamer (on 30 June 2009)
This game looks amazing in HD. Good game, but will never be as good as the classic games. I'll give the game 7.5/10. =]
pearLy (on 23 May 2009)
Trophy patch is coming 28th of may and a platinum release for less than 30 is planned.

@headshot91

There is a fine line between a couple of spelling/grammar errors and just speaking almost gibberish. Imagine if the people who ran this site typed like that. Then no one would come here.
NanakiXI (on 10 May 2009)
I'm sure this game will reach 1mil with holiday boost on the 360 and PS3. I just thought it would reach it sooner.
EdStation3 (on 09 May 2009)
The game wasn't all that great. 5/10. Glitches, bland game play. I like to build a nice collection of games and usually don't trade games in, but this is the first game I've traded in. Put it towards my inFamous preorder.
pearLy (on 18 April 2009)
Although the trophy patch was already announced a very long time ago, it hasn't been released yet.

Have trophies been patched in yet?
Soul_tech10 (on 30 March 2009)
if it sells 10k a week for 17 weeks it will reasc 1 million!

@NanakiXI
whoa calm down man, so he didn't speak grammatically correct English? Who cares?
NanakiXI (on 26 March 2009)
@willbe

Can I have some of that pot you're smoking? First off

"and it will out sold Uncharted even only at PS3 eventually. "

Damn speak English much. And second this will never outsell Uncharted on the PS3 alone. You are quite delusional since this game is struggling to make 1mil. I don't even want to wast anymore time on this.
willbe (on 24 March 2009)
glad it out sold new Prince of Persia. and it will out sold Uncharted even only at PS3 eventually.
Blaiyan (on 21 March 2009)
Just ordered this for $30 from amazon.
Aj_habfan (on 23 February 2009)
It's going to take a lot for Square Enix to make this series popular in Japan.
squeeky (on 16 February 2009)
So 360 owners get to pay extra for content that was stripped out of the real game and PS3 owners pay full price for a game with missing levels. Both console owners get the shaft.
black7xxx7 (on 15 February 2009)
lol at all the immature people commenting on that they didnt buy this game because it went to the 360 grow up fanboys its pathetic that you wont buy this game because it went to the xbox 360 and favored it with exclusive DLC to bad your missing out
Egghead (on 21 January 2009)
Dude, the game sold below expectations, doesnt mean it sold badly.

Both versions will sell a million, and didnt MS pay off Eidos for the DLC?
geddesmond2 (on 12 January 2009)
right so let me get this straight.eidos started off on the ps,sold millions of games on the ps then decide to favour the xbox360 with this one with the exclusive costumes and dlc resulting in many long time fans including me not buying the game and wat happens.ps3 versions sells more.big mistake if you ask me theyve no chance on making any profit with this one,now there in trouble and might be closing down.lol serves them right for being unloyal to there fans
Egghead (on 11 January 2009)
1.15m on both consoles, plus PC, 1.5 million shipped sounds okay
Dante666 (on 06 January 2009)
Great game...shame about the ending :|
Barozi (on 26 December 2008)
uhm wtf ? there is an official naked Lara costume ?????
Burmese (on 23 December 2008)
Has anyone managed to unlock the naked Lara costume yet?
Marty8370 (on 20 December 2008)
Bought from Play.com for only 17.99
Fenristh (on 08 December 2008)
Getting this for xmas. Cannot wait.
malekelnasr000000001 (on 05 December 2008)
tom raider should have stayed a playstation exclusive.
MrChi14 (on 28 November 2008)
Kinda funny that this outsold the 360 version - but then again, I know a lot of people with 360's who just didn't have the money, b/c they had bought too many good games prior ;)

Plus it's also amusing that this game runs smoother on the 360, since I'm reading about hick-ups and such in reviews... where? Playing a PS3 version? I've seen none.

Plus the numbers mean nothing, as long as I see DLC soon, I'm interested in wrapping this story up!
charbelelnasr2000001 (on 28 November 2008)
Another game that outsold the 360 version.
blazinhead89 (on 28 November 2008)
outsold 360 version by 60,000 week one. Guess that exclusive DLC didnt help then..... Also must be more Raider fans on PS3
NIKOS_SE (on 28 November 2008)
eidos and crystal dynamics are just plain stupid!!!!!

should they have optimized the game better on the ps3,given us a demo and dlc content and the game would have double the numbers!!!
Aj_habfan (on 28 November 2008)
Nice guns in this one though.
palitococo (on 26 November 2008)
No point of comparation between Underworld and Drakes Fortune, but this TR is much better than the others TR in this decade.
pearLy (on 26 November 2008)
Actually I'm quite surprised Underworld nearly sold as well as Uncharted in its first week.
But how can there already be numbers if the game hasn't even been released a whole week ago?

The graphics in this game are MUCH better than Drakes fortune, it's just that the framerate is awful at some points, BUT the camera in this game is awful. I got disorientated one time too many during my playtime.
-> Are you crazy or blind??????????????
Kaos24 (on 25 November 2008)
IM about half way thought Underworld and so far im really enjoying it. Its my first time playing Tomb Raider so im a little new to Lara and the storyline. As of now i think uncharted is better, but that might change. idk. hope the US numbers are better then the "other" region

pearLy (on 22 November 2008)
I think it doesn't make sense to compare Underworld's graphics with those of Uncharted since it is actually the exact contrary of an exclusive. With only one and a half year time Crystal Dynamics had to develop for six platforms at the same time.
blazinhead89 (on 22 November 2008)
Great game. Uncharted graphics better, Especially Uncharted Water. Great Game nonetheless.
KylieDog (on 22 November 2008)
I'm the only member with this game?

TR:U > Uncharted.
Awoken (on 07 September 2008)
it's like Uncharted for girlz... ;) j/k

I will definitely be picking this up.
