UNCHARTED 2 Giveaways Coming Soon, Anniversary Event Recap

Arne Meyer's Avatar + Posted by Arne Meyer on Oct 22, 2010 // Community Strategist, Naughty Dog

Like UNCHARTED

Last weekend, we held our first Anniversary Event to celebrate one year since the release of UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves, and I think we’d be understating things to say it was anything but a rousing success! All of us at Naughty Dog wanted to thank everyone (again) who went online to participate in our Anniversary Event – getting the Anniversary Drake skin, along with mega-cash, in return – and made it such a special day for the Dogs to spend with our fan community.

We pulled a few amazing stats from the Anniversary Event we thought you’d like to know:

  • We recorded over 2.5 man years of game time in a period of just 24 hours(1 game that lasts 20 minutes = 20 minutes, regardless of how many players in the game)
  • Those 2.5 years came from 1,079,850 player games (10 players in a game = 10 player games)
  • We also saw 12,376,755 kills during our Anniversary Event (that’s strictly pvp – NPC kills in co-op games aren’t recorded)
  • Everyone benefited from the 5x cash bonus and no cash cap, accumulating a collective $49 BILLION in in-game cash – which would rank UNCHARTED 2 about #70 in the list of countries by GDP
  • I only completed 66% of my 24 hour straight personal challenge (total #FAIL)

UNCHARTED 2: Game of the Year edition

Last week also saw the release of the UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Game of the Year Edition (psst! you can order your copy here or visit your local brick and mortar), although a few of our eagle eyed community members noticed that our most recent DLC releases – the UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Sidekick Skins Pack and UNCHARTED 2 Dynamic Theme wasn’t included as part of the value-priced, DLC-packed retail release.

Borneo Sullivan - HeroesWetsuit Elena - Heroes

To rectify this, we’re going to hold a few giveaways really soon to give our fans – release-day veterans or GOTY Edition newbs – a shot at snagging both these DLC releases! Follow @PlayStation and @Naughty_Dog on Twitter and keep a close watch next week for more details!

Last time I won that limited edition from naughty dog, I never received it. I even emailed them saying I am happy to pay for any shipment fees. So after I dont think naughty dog will do such a great favour for its fans.

    Can you explain in a bit more detail what happened? I don’t recall getting a message here at the studio about anything like this — and fulfillment of this sort of thing is handled by our publisher, SCEA and SCEE depending on the region.

    We have “The Lab” just about every other weeks and we’ve typically done something for most US/studio holidays, even if it’s just Double Cash — so roughly speaking, yes.

The game is just the better game EVER! :) Really, I didn’t put that much time in a single game since like 10 years.

I had a lot of fun on october 16 and I’m proud to have my anniversary skin!

Please Arne say me you’ll update the playlists one day with the best lbas one or make a new permanent playlist with special weapons variations! I had SO MUCH fun with Desert-5 only and No-Power-Weapons I can’t believe I’ll never play theses again, seem impossible. :(

    I’ve been thinking about proposing this since we really haven’t made any playlist updates, although The Labs are a kind of (non-permanent) playlist update. I’ll put in a suggestion and see if we can do something. Cross your fingers!

@dsings209

Next time you log into uncharted 2 multiplayer you will have that skin available. On Oct. 16 it was only available to Naughty Dog employees.

Event was awesome, I have not played game recently, but when I hear about special 1 year anniversary I could not miss it, I even made my finacee and her mom watch me play. (We are getting married next year and she is visiting us to help with planning a wedding and stuff)

Lab section was awesome, I will have to fire up Uncharted 2 every weekend now, I just love that game so much.

Thank you for creating THE BEST GAME, looking forward to Uncharted 3.

For the Twitter giveaways, don’t post the codes for everyone to see! I hate that “first person to enter code gets it” crap, because it’s always gone within a few seconds! Maybe have people retweet your post, and when you pick someone, just give him/her the code in a private message.

I plan on buying the GOTY Edition because I want to further support NDI, and I need about $25 of the DLC still!

(By the way arne, what would you trade for an unused MP Demo code? You know the one with the revenge booster on the same card? lol)

Uncharted 2 is my favorite ps3 game and I really appreciate all the support you guys give to the game with DLCs, the lab, special events… Thanks to the 5x event I finally cracked into the roman numeral badge.

Ok its true, UC2 is pretty much the best game this gen so far.

What would make it even better is some DLC that will bridge the gap between UC2 and UC3… prehaps a 3 or 4 chapter lead in for 10 or 15… sign me up!

Hello arne,
I’ve got two problems I hope you could update me with a solution with.

1) Whenever I play Uncharted 2, just about 2-5 minutes while in the menu or connecting to the Multiplayer, my PS3 shuts off and starts blinking red.

2) I tried deleting the LiveData files from the PS3 thinking that would fix it. After I deleted it, when Im connecting and am halfway through the bar, It gives me an error syncing models. EVERYTIME for two weeks now.

I hope you can help me with this. As I missed getting the Anniversary Drake skin because I couldn’t play uncharted 2. I really hope I could play again. :(

+ BalramRules on October 23rd, 2010 at 3:35 am said:

Hopefully Naughty Dog will also reveal how much everyone has played since the game was released, and also how many people have died/number of kills, total amount of cash earned, and average no. of matches per day and stuff!
ND ARE DOING GREAT! XD
