UNCHARTED 2 Demo Ended – More Chances to Win the Fortune Hunter Edition

Asad Qizilbash's Avatar Posted by on Oct 12, 2009 // Senior Director, First Party Games, SIEA


Hope you guys have been enjoying the multiplayer demo these past two weeks. Remember that UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves goes on sale as early as midnight tonight at over 800 GameStop stores (Check here for store locations).

The main reason for this post is that we just got word that the multiplayer demo ended earlier today and unfortunately we won’t be able to get it back up before the game launches. So for those who wanted to get on and play some UNCHARTED 2 multiplayer goodness, you’re going to have to wait a few short hours till the game goes on sale.

I know we had a contest running with a chance to win 10 Fortune Hunter Editions every day Saturday through Monday…so here is what we’re going to do. For Saturday and Sunday we’re going to increase the number of Fortune Hunter Edition prizes from 10 to 20 each day. For Monday, we’re going to honor the contest by drawing 10 winners from all those who logged on this morning.

Chances to win the Fortune Hunter Edition don’t stop there. This weekend, if you own the game and are planning to play online, we’ll be randomly drawing names Friday – Sunday with a total of 30 Fortune Hunter Editions up for grabs. Contest rules to follow. Keep checking back to the Blog for more ways to win the Fortune Hunter Edition.

Sorry for the inconvenience…just a couple more hours left. Hey, if any of you plan to pick up the game at midnight, would love to hear what you think of it.

Well at least I got to play it during the closed beta. I downloaded the demo on friday and played a little bit sunday morning I think it was so I got my name in there. Cool game. I still need to play the first one.

I’d love to have UC2 Fortune Hunter Edition copy although I’ve pre-ordered the game ;)


+ jqtaxpayer on October 12th, 2009 at 6:56 pm said:

Dang… I was going to try again around 11:00. I only got to play one day this weekend.

And these further chances are to people who have already purchased the game? That doesn’t make very much sense to me.

The game is great and can’t wait to finish it! Awesome job fellas!

I’ll be seeing everyone tomorrow night. With the Buy 2 Get 1 Free deal at ToysRus, my friends and I will be getting three copies of U2 at $43.60 each (after tax!).

Not only do we get a Game of the Year contender, but we get it at 20 bucks off! I’m very excited.

Argh, BB has yet to ship my copy and my order for a new controller…There goes my chances for a Fortune Hunter Edition :(

Sony I bought a ps3 because well I love you guys. So if you guys can not show me love well I might have to see a different controller in my hand when I am playing online.

Going to Emeryville Gamestop for the Midnight fortune grab…can’t wait for the whole U2 experience!


+ NewOlman on October 12th, 2009 at 7:13 pm said:

no more demo then? that’s really bad, I only had the chance to play it once!

I guess the demo was only for high school kids that have time to do anything and not for the people with jobs who plays after coming from work; whom by the way are the ones with the cash to buy your games!


+ Zookey on October 12th, 2009 at 7:15 pm said:

LMAO I was sweating bullets–thanks for clearing that up–I thought I did something wrong when my beta expired!


+ Balert on October 12th, 2009 at 7:15 pm said:

Since I’ve run through it already, I’ll just tell ya: the game is freakin’ awesome!

Can’t wait ’til my fortune hunter edition gets here!!!


+ OldSchool969 on October 12th, 2009 at 7:16 pm said:

Sorry qiz but I don’t think you’re going to be seeing much feedback, everyone will be too busy playing!!

(Yes, I went to the cinema event and grabbed an early copy; and yes, my team won the tournament netting ourselves Fortune Hunter editions of the game!)


+ Zilas on October 12th, 2009 at 7:21 pm said:

Just a few hours away till launch!
I will be purchasing this game first thing in the morning when I get to work.
Me and my Boss will be leaving to go to the Futureshop that’s just around the corner to pick up our copies.
Unfortunately I won’t be playing it tomorrow but the day after >_<‘
Like the guy in the latest PlayStation 3 add, my girlfriend wants to watch and she works tomorrow (I also share the same name as the guy in the add…)

When I got Drakes Fortune I was instantly hooked and loved all the bonuses like the art galleries, making of videos and so on (I hope Uncharted 2 also includes stuff like that)
I loved the characters, the look, gameplay and how they would randomly communicate while playing.
My girlfriend was also hooked and wouldn't let me play the game without her over at my place to watch.

And so again I will have to wait for her to be able to play this game. Its only one extra day but still I can’t wait anymore…

Anyway great job guys. The game looks amazing and I hope to see many more adventures down the line.
Uncharted has easily become one of my favourite series along with Metal Gear and Final Fantasy.
Hope you have a great launch <('.'<)

Ugh all i’m doing right now is watching the uncharted 2 reviews and just getting excited till I get my hands on it :) Mostly everyone says its great, I mean if Adam Sessler/Xplay gave it 5/5 I am putting my faith in Naughty Dog that they have made a Masterpiece to be remembered for generations to come. Really Now I’m just thinkin how would ND top Uncharted 2 with Uncharted 3!!! Theres no doubt in my mind that they will if not should make multiple games for this franchise. Who would not want that?…..exactly everybody is gonna be craving another Uncharted right after we finish this one. Asad please make sure you tell Evan and Christophe to schedule the production of another Uncharted right after yall receive your well earned vacations and make sure the ND teams in each department to come with greatness in the future because so far yall have earned a Full-Time loyal customer/s and I will purchase more titles coming from a great hard working company. I really want to thank you, evan, christophe, druckman and everyone else from the Naughty Dog Staff for you hard work,love and dedication you have given to this game for all of us to enjoy. :)

Would of picked it up at midnight but no midnight releases near me… I’ll wait till tomorrow!


+ jS_45 on October 12th, 2009 at 7:30 pm said:

Wow, I want the Fortune Hunter edition something awful. I wish it was actually for sale. I’d probably pay up to $150 for one at retail. I’m sure there are people who will be selling it on e-bay, but I don’t trust e-bay. :P


+ GeneralOfDeath on October 12th, 2009 at 7:31 pm said:

Uncharted 2 ROCKS! :) Im def buying 2moro, I actually checked walmart Sunday hoping they would have been dum and put it out early :(

The demo kicked much butt. I can’t wait for the real thing. Good job, Sony!

Tham cant get mines at midnight because i gotta take care of my sister and wont be able to play until like 8pm because of school and work. But as soon as i put it in to the ps3 i will be saying goodbye to my life.

Great demo guys! I was entertained every second of it. I actually got bummed out when i woke up and couldn’t play haha but thats what i get for playing it alot. I actually did decent to i had 735 kills and 400 something deaths. Goodluck to everyone on winning the fortune hunter edition! (Crosses fingers in hope of winning)

I got a copy of the game from the event Sony/Naughty Dog had in Seattle. Beat the game on Saturday. Working on finding those treasures. The game is definitely a 10 out of 10!

Ah, I had to go to school and… oh well. I hope I win, thanks for evening up the odds, SCEA.

called my local gamestop. no midnight launch. no demo. so sad.


+ NintendoTim on October 12th, 2009 at 7:59 pm said:

Now this is badass.

Thank you guys SO much for doing this. Doubling our chances to win the FHE? That definitely makes up for today’s loss. I might be heading out for the midnight launch to pick it up (as well as Brutal Legend), however, I’ve got a rack of Best Buy Reward Zone certs in my account. I was saving them up for MW2’s Prestige Edition, but I might just use them now…

hey ND guys, i would like to ask a really quick questions and i really need an answer t6o this please answer…. in the beta/demo , i noticed that it’s really SOOO slow to get me into a matchmaking game… will the original game disc have this same issue? please dont ignore this question as if u answer i’ll decide wheather to pick Uncharted2 or MAG!

How much is it going to cost for the special edition?


+ DevilishlyZexy on October 12th, 2009 at 8:30 pm said:

Well this certainly sucks as I was about to log in for the third day. Great for all the people who have jobs who didn’t stay up late thinking they would get on tomorrow as had been stated everywhere (from the Blog to the cards with the codes). While it’s nice that the amount for Saturday and Sunday was increased, it doesn’t change the fact that those who logged in for Monday have much better odds.
