Big Surprises at the UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Cinema Events

Chris Morell's Avatar + Posted by Chris Morell on Oct 06, 2009 // Senior Social Media Specialist

Last night, four UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves cinema events simultaneously took place across the country, one of them on our very own home turf of San Francisco. It was a night packed full of fun, surprises, special guests and crazy excitement.

UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Cinema Event 1

For starters, fans (100 of you, to be exact!) and media were greeted by UNCHARTED 2 on the big screen upon entering San Francisco’s Landmark theater. From there, a brand new section of the game’s single-player campaign (in the snowy Himalayas) was shown and introduced by Naughty Dog Creative Director Amy Hennig, who then shocked the crowd by announcing that everyone would be going home with a copy of the game…eight days early!!! Needless to say, the place erupted. Shortly after, we caught up with Amy about the whole experience.

From there, a multiplayer tournament kicked off on a never-been-played map, with a Fortune Hunter Edition up for grabs to the winner. Emotions ran high (take that, people trying to watch the French indie flick next door!) and we discovered that many of you have definitely been practicing MP in the recent demo. All the action could be seen on the movie theater screen, running through Sony Electronics‘ 4K digital cinema technology, with Senior Vice President Mike Fidler on hand to tell us how the 4K projector is the perfect fit for big-screen gaming.

For all that and more, take the video for a spin. And thanks to everyone who made it out to San Francisco, Bellevue, Thousand Oaks and Rosemont. We surely hope the night was worth your while!

And in case you’re wondering, tonight’s October 6 event is completely sold out in all four locations!

What a night. I couldn’t have asked for more: insane new single player gameplay on a huge digital screen, got the game a week early, and won the Fortune Hunter Edition (totally in the backpack of the crazy good guys and gal on my team). Still buzzing.

The thing is that I was supposed to go, but I just got my license to drive their today….. [DELETED].

I’d pay 500 bucks to get my hands on the fortune hunter edition, sucks that the true fans won’t be able to grasp it.

When will the next batch of Fortune Hunter Editions be given away? Will there still be a contest on PlayStation Home?

Thanks for having those events. I went to the one in Bellevue and it was a lot of fun. The behind-the-scenes videos at the start of the event were really interesting. I’m planning on finishing Uncharted 2 before the release date. I hope I’ll be able to post a blog post about it before the release date as well. :-)

Great gaming in SF. Nice to see you and Jeff again.

Big thanks to Sony and Naughty Dog for this awesome event and I can;t wait until the next one.

They gave away the game at the SF event?? Me am cry. I love my triplets and 3yr old with every fiber of my being, but I could’ve had Uncharted 2 right now!! :(

+ DriftBanana on October 6th, 2009 at 3:52 pm said:

That sounds like a killer event, and I’m really bummed that I wasn’t able to attend one of them!

This 4k digital cinema thing sounds like a hack as far as gaming goes… It would be projecting an upscaled image, so why tout a 4k projection system that isn’t projecting something natively?

+ poodude on October 6th, 2009 at 3:53 pm said:

They all got early copies…lucky. I’m too tired to complain about the Fortune Hunter Edition not coming to Canada anymore, I’m just so excited for this game. Naughty Dog really deserves the hype and the great reviews. They truly are the greatest devs in the industry, and all I can say is that October 13th can’t come soon enough. Luckily I have Operation Flashpoint 2 and Demon’s Souls to keep me busy over the weekend.

I took the afternoon and today off from work due to the late night and drove really far and was not able to participate in anything as I was the guest at the Chicago event. What does “everyone” constitute as you state in your post? I didn’t get a copy of the game.

I would have tried to get my own ticket, if I had known that this was the case. I wanted to leave an open spot so another person and his or her friend could have fun at the event, but that was a mistake on my part.

Overall, I just wish that we were more informed regarding the very limited experience that the second guest would have at the VIP event. I’m very disappointed.

If I cry will you give me an early copy. :(

I went to the Chicago event and I must say, it was awesome! Just being around a bunch of people interested in Uncharted was good, but actually winning the tournament, that was incredible. Team Roman HOORAH!

I went to the Sony in Thousand Oaks, CA and it was INCREDIBLE!! Sony really knows how to show appreciation to their hardcore fans. There was free food, drinks and movie snacks. We got to check out 3 unseen parts of the game while one of the Co-Creators of the Uncharted 2 explained the technology of what was going on. There was also a raffle for a bundle of Sony games, DS3, headsets, and a PSP Go! Seeing the game on the big screen was amazing as well. Thanks for a memorable night Sony and thanks Naughty Dog for the FREE UNCHARTED 2 8 days before release!!!!
