Can’t make it to E3? Find treasure in our Uncharted 2 Online Hunt!

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by on May 31, 2009 // Sr. Social Media Manager

Good Sunday evening to you!

As you’re reading this, your PlayStation.Blog team is currently neck deep in tamales at our E3 Meet-up. As attendees showed up, we not only invited the first 100 into our press conference, we also presented the first 200 with an Uncharted 2 Nathan Drake-style long-sleeve shirt, perfect for a half-tuck. While I’m sure we’re having a lot of fun (we’ll report back soon, with pics), we don’t want those of you who couldn’t make it to feel left out.

While we were planning this meetup, we decided to “over order” the schwag: extra Uncharted 2 beta codes, extra shirts, and of course, extra schwag bags. Whoops!

Here’s how we’re going to give them out to you, our dear readers:

Uncharted 2 Media Event Screen

On Friday (9am Pacific), we’re going to ask a question about Uncharted 2. Be one of the first 300 to answer it, and you win. Simple!

Actually, it’s not *that* simple – because that question isn’t really easy. So here’s what you’re going to want to do to have a chance: This Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 9am we’ll be asking some easier-to-solve Uncharted questions via our Twitter account (you’re following us, right?), which will help you piece together that final answer.

More details below.

Contest Instructions:

  • Four clues will be given on the PlayStation Twitter from June 2 – 5 at 9 am PST.
  • The answers to the first three clues will contain the letters that make up the final word answer (kind of like the Jumble in the newspaper). We’ll use an asterisk (*) to indicate which letters will be in the final answer.
  • On Friday, June 5th at 9 am PST, we’ll ask the final question on the Blog/Twitter, the answer to which will be made of the letters you’ve collected up to that point. We’ll also provide the link to where you can submit your answer.
  • The first 300 qualifying people to submit the correct answer will receive an Uncharted 2 Beta Code… and the E3 Uncharted 2 Schwag Bag.

Giveaway Terms and Conditions:

  • Must be a US resident to participate, age 13 years or more.
  • Participants will not be told where to submit their answers until Friday, June 5th at 9:00 am PST.
  • Participants have the weekend (Friday, June 5 at 9:00 am PST – Monday, June 9 at 12:00 am PST) to submit the correct answer.

I know it’s not quite the same as being at E3, but between this and our coverage this week, you should be able to enjoy the week’s festivities without having to deal with LAX (this is a good thing).

Too bad it’s on US residents.

At least I had my code for Uncharted 2 Beta.

Can’t wait !


+ SOOPERGOOMAN187 on May 31st, 2009 at 7:28 pm said:

If I get it right can I just have the beta code and donate the t-shirt to some kid in hospital or do an ebay charity thing with it. I want to play Uncharted 2 Multiplayer so bad it hurts. btw how are the tamales?


+ GGCAN on May 31st, 2009 at 7:28 pm said:

on = only for @17.


+ MariusElijah on May 31st, 2009 at 7:28 pm said:

Good thing inFAMOUS came with it, Im not going to go through this


+ CoolHand032 on May 31st, 2009 at 7:30 pm said:

Thanks guys! Great opportunity for those of us who can’t make it.

So the answer will only be comprised of the letters specified in the earlier questions? Since you guys are asterisking them, will it even help to find the answers yourself?


+ ProwlingFox on May 31st, 2009 at 7:30 pm said:

i’ll be at E3 on tuesday! woo hoo! say jeff….can i come to the press conference? ;)


+ XgargunoX on May 31st, 2009 at 7:30 pm said:

can i still get the beta code if i get inFAMOUS this week sometime like wednesday or thursday??


+ gustavou on May 31st, 2009 at 7:34 pm said:

Too bad a PS3 owner, big fan of Uncharted and sony products enthusiast can’t participate for any Uncharted Beta Key promotion.

Too bad I was born brazilian. Too bad i still live here.

Good Luck everbody! Hope you do better than me!^^


+ katsuo7171 on May 31st, 2009 at 7:39 pm said:

Quick question is the Uncharted 2 Beta still redeemable on June 3rd or do we wait until Friday to redeem the code. Just clarifying


+ Super4Gogeta on May 31st, 2009 at 7:45 pm said:

I have a a question, i know it says U.S. residents only but since I’m living in Canada, is there any possible way I will be allowed to join


+ GamerMoney on May 31st, 2009 at 7:47 pm said:

+ ykiki5 on May 31st, 2009 at 7:54 pm said:

+ DMPrince on May 31st, 2009 at 7:55 pm said:

Does the schwag bag have a picture of Chris Morrell?


+ AngelMayLaugh on May 31st, 2009 at 7:58 pm said:

When the heck is Uncharted going to be a Greatest Hit? It’s hard to get excited about Uncharted 2 when you haven’t played the first of the series.


+ B1gg_Randall on May 31st, 2009 at 7:58 pm said:

I hope I win something..like a beta code


+ Vengeful-Chaos on May 31st, 2009 at 7:59 pm said:

Gosh dang it why does it have to involve twitter? :(

+ rogue5 on May 31st, 2009 at 8:05 pm said:

+ BlooodyCow on May 31st, 2009 at 8:06 pm said:

+ SlashZaku on May 31st, 2009 at 8:16 pm said:

Awesome. I’ll check in but I never win anything :(


+ gold5225 on May 31st, 2009 at 8:21 pm said:

Yeah I already have the Uncharted 2 beta code with inFAMOUS can I have a different prize like the latest build of God Of War III? or possibly Gran Turismo 5? or maybe even Trico? or Jeff how bout I get a exclusive game play trailer of Sly Cooper PS3 lol I wonder if they have even started working on Sly Cooper yet over at Sucker Punch. Cause they should still be Celebrating cause inFAMOUS is such a great game.

All these Great Games you have in the Pipeline I can always Dream right I mean I should eventually be able to play it if only it’s a matter of time before they come out especially God of War III and Gran Turismo 5

Oh and I’ll always take a PSP Go! as a consolation Prize.


+ Essence07 on May 31st, 2009 at 8:23 pm said:

+ Vengeful-Chaos on May 31st, 2009 at 8:23 pm said:

I have gone against all I beleive in (internet wise) and made an account and followed you guys. I am now follower 32,977 with a PSN sheep avatar.


+ gachzorge on May 31st, 2009 at 8:24 pm said:

So the questions will only be on twitter? including the final one? and will we be able to review the tuesday, wednesday, and thursday questions later in the day? or do we have to show up late for class/work to read them?


+ NaViTo on May 31st, 2009 at 8:26 pm said:

Awhhh!! Great, Another Company bites the Twitter Dust, to make themselves more popular.



+ Jeigh on May 31st, 2009 at 8:42 pm said:

I’d agree that Canada really should be let in on these things more often. I mean, we’re basically the same, only they say “eh” after everything. (Hey, I’m on your side here- take it as a good natured jab. :D )

Really, I’m just glad the people from Europe aren’t around to complain anymore, so let’s just let the Canadians in. (And, no, our dictionaries aren’t wrong, you ‘tossers’- not in our blog and not in a world where financial crisis for us means financial crisis for everyone.)


+ Ftwrthtx on May 31st, 2009 at 8:42 pm said:

I’ll be looking forward to this contest.


+ EvoAnubis on May 31st, 2009 at 8:44 pm said:

I’m in!


+ I_am_rushin on May 31st, 2009 at 8:44 pm said:

Sweet! I’m all over the Uncharted Schwag(is that a word Jeff), but I already have my beta code from inFAMOUS. God I love that game 81% trophies :D.
