UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Fortune Hunter Edition

Asad Qizilbash's Avatar + Posted by Asad Qizilbash on Sep 04, 2009 // Marketing Manager, SCEA

Fresh out of the Spike Sneak Peeks PAX panel comes a very special announcement from Naughty Dog’s Creative Director Amy Hennig — the UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Fortune Hunter Edition!

Included in this special package is the game, exact in-game replica of the Phurba Dagger Artifact and stand, Collectible Art Book and Collector case autographed by Naughty Dog, plus a host of downloads.

UNCHARTED 2 Among Thieves Fortune Hunter Edition

And part of what makes the Fortune Hunter Edition a real fan collectible is that you can’t buy it — you can only win it! There will be several ways to win including right here on the Blog. Stay tuned as we’ll have more details on that in the very near future!

I both respect, and lament your decision to make it only obtainable by luck in the future. I respect that you made it actually so unique instead of scrapping for a few bucks extra on a cheep collectors edition, yet lament it because I will almost certainly not be winning one. Just as with your Jak series case. As much as I desire this, I have already abandoned the hope of winning such a thing. But hey, so long as I still get to get the game, you guys are the number one reason I still have faith in the current game industry.

Looking forward to U2 very much :)

Once again, without fail, Canada has been left in the shadows. You have many contests in the “US Only” and in the “UK Only” BUT NEVER in “Canada Only”. Why????

Don’t think I can win this.

sweet I hope to find out if i have a chance at this amazing item from sony

This looks awesome! Expect me to be here trying with all I got to win one! Uncharted 1 was incredible, and Uncharted 2 looks even better, Naughty Dog looks like they’ve really done fantastic as usual. One question, when do we get the chance to win them?

I had an extra code for the beta of U2 previously from Infamous and Qore that I gave to my friend at work. He never plays online shooters but was ADDICTED to the beta as was I. We both pre-ordered today at Gamestop during lunch to get in the next beta. He is going to be stoked about this as I. That was one more customer ND hooked during the beta. Yes, the multiplayer is that fun! Now I can’t wait even more for the beta! Score!

This is sad for many of us, especially ones living outside the u.s.(not me of course) So how about throwing us at least “a host of downloads” Whatever that suppose to mean?! To us Uncharted fans.

+ AzixTGO on September 4th, 2009 at 8:31 pm said:

Strange. I am not a fan of 3 of the “items” that come with the preorders (beta, and those that affect multiplayer gameplay), to me it would seem smart to get the extra cash from collectors edition instead of making pre-orders so important.

I’d try to win this but i know its pretty unlikely. Some lucky guy somewhere will get it along with his already preordered game.

A question about the beta being a way to win: the people in the beta wouldnt have already preordered the game? What ya want with an extra copy?

+ E_Dawgg on September 4th, 2009 at 8:32 pm said:

Just in case the contest is who comments the most in this thread, I am at 3. I will go as high as needed to recieve this. Be back in a minute for comment 4. I am that lame and that excited to win this!


111

+ JBracin70 on September 4th, 2009 at 8:33 pm said:

200? SWEET! With my luck I might win one!

Or.. you know.. buy one off ebay afterwords ;)

Either way I am getting this!


112

+ E_Dawgg on September 4th, 2009 at 8:34 pm said:

What are the collection of downloads that are included? Please explain. Thank you.


113

+ TerribleLiar on September 4th, 2009 at 8:34 pm said:

Awesome! Kind of… or something. I love giveaways! But Naughty Dog, won’t you please accept our money? Although honestly, I wouldn’t buy it. It’s not that I don’t really want it, but I couldn’t afford it. It’s hard enough buying regular editions at $60. So hopefully I win so I know my first collector’s edition of a video game is a great one! :)


114

+ Huckleberry880 on September 4th, 2009 at 8:34 pm said:

I agree that this is ridiculous.

Are you really going to exclude the people who are diehard fans of your work from enjoying this special edition based on a contest of chance and timing? In a slew of poor marketing decisions from gaming companies recently, this may be the worst. Outright alienating your fan base. Did no one involved with this brilliant project see what an exclusionary idea this is?

I am truly flabbergasted by this. I swear I just saw an interview with Evan or Amy or Christophe where they talked about how important the community is to Naughty Dog. Those words ring hollow when the actions tell another story. Shame on you guys.

I know it’s been mentioned, But I was to state it again :)

Please don’t leave Canada out of this!!

+ E_Dawgg on September 4th, 2009 at 8:36 pm said:

Is the boxart for the game the new boxart with PS3 or the older style depicted in the photo? Thank you.


118

+ TL2 on September 4th, 2009 at 8:38 pm said:

I’d love to be able to buy this but there is no way i’d be able to win this thing. It just makes me mad that the people that do win this won’t even want the thing they will probably just put it on ebay to make a quick buck, and the true fans will have to pay rip off prices to get one.

+ MainEv3nt_69 on September 4th, 2009 at 8:44 pm said:

where can you pre order the golden weapons in Canada?


120

+ GameBoss01 on September 4th, 2009 at 8:46 pm said:

Hey I know this is in the US but does it include US Territories. Because I live in Puerto Rico and would really want this.


121

+ KALEL114 on September 4th, 2009 at 8:46 pm said:

Wow! I am going to be really busy trying get one of those. Rest assured, it will be mine.


122

+ E_Dawgg on September 4th, 2009 at 8:47 pm said:

I disagree with anybody complaining. THIS IS TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL! Only the fans will be winning this because you will be in the beta. To get in the beta, you have to preorder. Usually it is the fans that put down money early on preorders, nonfans just stumble into the game at stores and say, “That looks cool!” BRING ON THE CONTEST!


123

+ jiggyjoe21 on September 4th, 2009 at 8:48 pm said:

Wow that’s an amazing prize, I got into the beta for preordering it at Gamestop, how can we win one in the multiplayer? And what was that boost that I got for preordering it?


124

+ onipar on September 4th, 2009 at 8:51 pm said:

So what’s the deal here? Is this going to be a lottery type thing, or a competition?

Man I would have LOVED to have one of these. I’m going to give it a shot, but if it’s some kind of crazy competition, I’m probably gonna lose.


125

+ E_Dawgg on September 4th, 2009 at 8:51 pm said:

I too would like to know the answers to what jiggyjoe21 was asking above. What is the revenge perk? How do we win in multiplayer?


126

+ Ausohoj on September 4th, 2009 at 8:51 pm said:

so, we can only win one through the multiplayer and it’s during the time that people who preorder it get in on the multiplayer? darn. But i shall not despair! I will do my best to win one of the other 200 copies!! as long as it has nothing to do with flikr facebook or twitter. or myspace. Otherwise i’m screwed.


127

+ packy17 on September 4th, 2009 at 8:52 pm said:

@ Asad-

I just preordered at Gamestop so I could have that extra chance in the beta. Thanks for letting us know how many copies exist!


128

+ WAMU on September 4th, 2009 at 8:53 pm said:

Man that looks so awesome…
I wish I could get a guaranteed ownership of that by pre-ordering it…

knowing that I’d have to win it…i think my chances of winning that is out the window… :(


129

+ Huckleberry880 on September 4th, 2009 at 8:53 pm said:

The art book and dagger…ok win those….but to miss out on “a host of downloads”? If I miss out on behind the scenes docs, or skins, or weapons, or music files because I couldn’t time it right to win…I will be very put off by Naughty Dog as a company!!

Who is the marketing monkey who thought of this?

+ baahas on September 4th, 2009 at 8:54 pm said:

@114

Too late. Sony has already kicked Canada in the face again.


131

+ Ouren on September 4th, 2009 at 9:00 pm said:

Hi!

my Dad would LOVE to get this, and I would LOVE to win it for him!

I got him back into gaming in over 7 years with his PS3, and he loved Uncharted, winning this would be great, because it might go a little ways into saying “thanks for paying tens of thousands of dollars paying for my education!”

or something.


132

+ packy17 on September 4th, 2009 at 9:00 pm said:

@125

The beta is only one place you can win. It says they’re giving some away on the blog and in Home, and other places that are TBA.


133

+ aznkungfu on September 4th, 2009 at 9:02 pm said:

omg…that what im waiting for…but so sad that it not sold in the store =(
How do i win for the collection??


134

+ E_Dawgg on September 4th, 2009 at 9:03 pm said:

@Asad

Why do you bring us this news with so much mystery then stop answering our questions? Please elaborate on what the downloads are? I need to finish Batman before the beta starts, cause I will be playing the beta 24/7 to get my hands on this.


135

+ IGlowInTheDark on September 4th, 2009 at 9:04 pm said:

You guys are going to lose out on millions in profit because you aren’t coming out with a LE or CE! But that’s your call, unfortunately.

But I do have a question, these contests you’re going to have, are they for US residents only, or is it international?


136

+ Narutofreak1 on September 4th, 2009 at 9:07 pm said:

So we have to still pre-order to get the multiplayer demo, then probably beat a ton of people to get. Nice. So only hardcore players are gonna get it.


137

+ E_Dawgg on September 4th, 2009 at 9:08 pm said:

@134

He replied earlier that it is only for US.


138

+ NeoMahi on September 4th, 2009 at 9:08 pm said:

Really? Bummer… I’ve never won anything in my lifetime. Had to work my butt off to keep ahead of everyone to get something, but I’ve never won anything. Dangit.

At least I get to play the game. I’m wettin myself but, that’s awesome for whoever will get it as a collectible. Barry Bonds home run ball was worth millions. Definately rare. But, its awesome to know some DLC will be coming out. Further adds to a Blu-ray that’s using everything its got to please its gamers. Way to go Naughty Dog! Your glory days in the sun…. Again! Can’t wait to play it. Goodluck to everyone!


139

+ BlindMango on September 4th, 2009 at 9:09 pm said:

Hey, this game looks so amazing. I can’t wait to get my hands on it next month!

I hope there isn’t some extremely difficult online trophy that prevents you from getting a platinum trophy, a ton of games do that and that’s why the first Uncharted was fun, they had fun single player trophies that weren’t impossible.


140

+ GiraffeWaffles on September 4th, 2009 at 9:10 pm said:

what is naughty dog thinking? i mean yeah, this is really awesome that they are giving them out in contests, but they would make some serious bank if they sold this for $100 or more.anyways,i hope i win this

I have won nothing in my life :( … but im still trying :)


142

+ InfiniteNine on September 4th, 2009 at 9:13 pm said:

Poor right now so I can’t pre-order, so I hope winning this edition somehow is in my hand.


143

+ Jeeves_Tremor on September 4th, 2009 at 9:14 pm said:

“Just in the US”

Really?

I expect this thing kind of thing to happen when Sony runs a competition, but really ND? I really thought you were above this kind of thing.

I even thought about pre-ordering for a while, both for the game and the demo, but this has gone too far.


144

+ hiim_mao on September 4th, 2009 at 9:15 pm said:

I wonder how many there are.

I doubt I’ll win it anyways.


145

+ bluem00se on September 4th, 2009 at 9:18 pm said:

Wow a collector’s edition I was actually considering buying and the only way to get it is to win it? Hopefully it isn’t TOO hard to win!


146

+ E_Dawgg on September 4th, 2009 at 9:19 pm said:

@143

He stated earlier that there is a total of 200 copies available to win and the contest is for US only. Good luck!


147

+ roddollente on September 4th, 2009 at 9:23 pm said:

know what Sony, shipping to Canada is only $5 more expensive that to U.S. so what the f*** is this? since we Canadians always get get shafted in one way or another (hey, having a PS Store icon in the Video menu while we don’t have any PSN Video store is total fail), why don’t you just render this site inaccessible to all canadians? >=(


148

+ TheChief04 on September 4th, 2009 at 9:24 pm said:

i hope i win this


149

+ SpyDudeFX on September 4th, 2009 at 9:25 pm said:

Hmm great way to build interest, not sure I’m gonna try. Sony has a habit of under delivering a lot lately and I’d rather not get my hopes up only to be let down.
