Some interesting statistics were revealed today involving both Halo 3: ODST and the Uncharted 2. Both sets of numbers were quite fascinating.

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Stats from the multiplayer demo:

  • 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!)

A single review stat:

  • 17/34 reviews are scored 100 and currently sits at 97/100 average on MetaCritic

Halo 3: ODST

Sales:

  • Sold 2.5 million units within the first two weeks of release
  • Generated $125 million in sales
  • Total franchise sales exceeds 27 million units

Trade-in Value

  • $40 CAD at EB Games (I just traded it in towards Forza Motorsport 3)

    I’m surprised by ODST’s numbers. I didn’t think it would do that well seeing how it’s primarily single player focused. I wonder what the trade-ins are with that title. Regardless, I still recommend you all play it. It’s pretty good!

    As for Uncharted 2’s stats, it’s shocking to see how many hours were logged with the multiplayer. 27+ years! And that’s just the demo. I hope this translates to excellent sales; Naughty Dog deserves it. But I do wonder how much of it was spent waiting on the matchmaking though. Hey ohh!

    Halo 3: ODST Campaign Review

    I never intended to pick up Halo 3: ODST primarily because I was “Halo’ed” out after Halo 3‘s campaign I didn’t want to see or hear the Master Chief again. I wanted no more Cortana and no more of the Flood either. I guess Bungie felt the same way by the looks of ODST. With this installment, Bungie took the successful Halo 3 formula and remixed it for another adventure. This prequel to 2007’s multi-million seller may feature a shorter campaign and questionable pricing, but I liked it. You could say that I liked it more than Halo 3 itself.

    Checkpoint: Calm Before The Storm 2009 Edition

    There was no Checkpoint last week because I was busy earning bonus cash. Bonus cash which I could then use for the next two months’ worth of games. It’s Labour Day weekend which means its the calm before the 2009 holiday gaming storm.

    So let’s take a look what September and October has to offer. Note that I’ll be cherry picking the ones that I may be interested in (including the preferred platform). For the full list, I suggest you waltz on over to Gamespot.

    Update: Added some Xbox Live! related items

    Instead of breaking down the Microsoft E3 2009 press conference and include both multiplatform and exclusive content, I’m going to focus on the stuff you can find “exclusively on Xbox 360” — or as exclusive to the Xbox 360 as it can get.

    A shit-ton of Microsoft announcements await you below. For everything else, check here.
