Sam Thompson's Avatar Posted by Producer, SCEA


Hey all… hope you’re having fun in the UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Multiplayer Beta. We’ve gotten really positive feedback and a lot of awesome suggestions that are going to make the final game even better… and the devs are having a blast playing with all of you.

We’re still really excited by the great reception Uncharted 2 had at E3 a couple of weeks ago. We’re thrilled that our hard work has been acknowledged through several nominations and awards from many of the media outlets who were at E3. We also just received word that we were awarded Game Critics Awards: Best of E3 2009 “Best of Show”, which marks the first-ever console-exclusive and first-ever first-party game to win! USA Today Game Hunters blog announced the Game Critics Awards winners here. Our awards include, among others, the following:

We’re honored to have received such high praise coming out of E3, but our real reward will come when we can share the full game with all of you and hear what you think about it. On that note, if you’re interested in pre-ordering UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves, go to, Best Buy, Game Crazy, or GameStop. And in the meantime, you’ve got five more days left until the end of the Multiplayer Beta, so we’ll see you online!

Also, stay tuned for details on an upcoming live chat with the Naughty Dogs next week!

You guys truly are one of the best in the industry, Sony’s really luck they bought you! :p Keep up the hard work!

Naughty Dog is clearly the benchmark when it comes to creating games for the PS3.

Sucker Punch and Insomniac are pretty close as well though.

Congrats to ND!

The first game was amazing the second will be beyond!

Can’t wait for this game to come out! I’ve played the beta’s deathmatch and co-op mode it’s insane! I WANT MORE!

The beta is great, really feels like something special, and having multiplayer that isn’t first person feels extremely refreshing these days. Thanks, and congrats!

Congratulations Naughty Dog for all those awards, you really deserve them. Can’t wait for the game, when will the release date be announced?

commedieu said:

June 23rd, 12:14 pm

Maybe you guys will advertise the game.. and for the love of god remember to put “IN GAME GAMEPLAY” or something. Everyone thinks PS3 commercials are just cgi.

ts23245 said:

June 23rd, 12:15 pm

It deserves it. I’ve been playing the beta and I gotta say I’m already addicted.

Chas19 said:

June 23rd, 12:15 pm

I cant wait for Uncharted 2. Uncharted is one of, if not my favourite PS3 game, and Uncharted 2 is looking to be even better.

I would love however Naughty Dog to make a new platformer, similar to crash bandicoot as a PSN game. I wish they never got rid of the Crash License, as every Naughty Dog game has been amazing, as Crash is one of the best.

Im looking forward to a new Jak though. Hope thats coming soon :D

So, is this the system seller that that the PS3 needs?

I think it might be….

Jon_Mclane said:

June 23rd, 12:17 pm

does this game have any cool preorders yet?

nv_Los said:

June 23rd, 12:18 pm

HELL YEAH UNCHARTED 2 WINS!!! Great Job Naughty Dog looking forward to this day 1 and the multiplayer is just awesome
Thank You and SONY

Marauderxt said:

June 23rd, 12:18 pm

All these awards are nice, but for the love of god market this game when it comes out. What happend to Sony and its Marketing? Its done such a poor job this generation on all major titles.

Incubuster said:

June 23rd, 12:19 pm

You guys are awesome, and your game totally deserved all the praise it’s getting. Can’t wait to play the final game for myself!

SpeedRacer1955 said:

Playing the beta is fun when you have a party to play with… The Random matchmaking is fine but sometimes players just like to play with their friends in game after game with another party. Can’t wait for the Custom gaming feature to work…

I have pre-ordered the Game for the Exclusive GameStop Demo in August…

Darkos87 said:

June 23rd, 12:21 pm

Difficult to pick best of show between uncharted and god of war… but since you guys are releasing first… YOU WIN

Skoltnik said:

June 23rd, 12:22 pm

Along with Insomniac and Sucker Punch, you guys are in the top of the league…keep the fun going.

XxDeathDoctorxX said:

June 23rd, 12:24 pm

cant wait for 2.80 tomorrow :-p it was leaked

BlooodyCow said:

June 23rd, 12:25 pm

First Congrats to Naught Dog and I cannot wait for the complete game this Fall. I LOVE the BETA.

Second to Sony. You guys need to market the hell out of Uncharted 2, Ratchet and Clank and MAG this Fall. I have yet to see a inFamous or Killzone 2 commercial and that is very sad because those two are the best games to be release this year so far on any consoles.

Sponge-worthy said:

June 23rd, 12:25 pm

Congratulations! The beta has been a lot of fun. There are some weapon-balancing and spawn-camping issues, but those are somewhat par-for-the-course things that many online shooters must resolve anyway.

Looking forward to the final release :)

digitalpowershot said:

June 23rd, 12:25 pm

Release date?

SPOPS said:

June 23rd, 12:26 pm

Does not surprise me at all. Naughty Dog rocks and always create one hell of a game. Uncharted 1 is by far my favorite game on the PS3 to date.

Korbei83 said:

June 23rd, 12:27 pm

Obvious winner of game of the year that will never be nominated by the idiotic games ‘press’. Dead beat enthusiasts with more time on their hands than they deserve. Blathering their useless opinions like they mean anything more than mine or yours.

The only news worth having is right here because it’s right from the horses mouth, not the other end.

KALEL114 said:

June 23rd, 12:28 pm

Congrats ND! I haven’t pre-ordered my copy yet, because I have been holding out for a Collectors Edition announcement. I have never bought a Collectors Edition of any game before. This would be my first and probably only, if one is released. Please, make one!

enewtabie said:

June 23rd, 12:28 pm

Where are you located? There have been plenty of both game commericals on the air here in the US. Can’t speak for anywhere else.

Destiny89 said:

June 23rd, 12:30 pm

Awesome news and cant wait :)

Capt-Fury- said:

June 23rd, 12:31 pm

While Uncharted was the best of the 3, it got overlooked with the release of AC and CoD:MW to sequels that are coming yet again in november and we all know the beast CoD is. Hopefully you guys push for an October release, that way you shine more.

Destiny89 said:

June 23rd, 12:32 pm


lol i’v seen TONS of inFAMOUS commercials here in Canada, im telling you A LOT on TV and movie theaters, i even memorized the whole trailer since i see it almost everyday on TV. im glad they are advertising it this much

thegriefer said:

June 23rd, 12:33 pm

uncharted is one of my favorite games this generation.

beenii said:

June 23rd, 12:34 pm

hopefully this will satisfy all our expectations…
BTW expectations…Firmware 2.80 is coming tomorrow. (i assume, cause the debug one seems to be up already). heard there will be changes for the invitation system, but much more important for us would be: can we expact crossgame chat with it, or in the near future?
thank you very much

You deserve all the awards.

Keep up the great work !

RenorMirshann said:

Congratulations, looking foward to play full game, hope that single player will be long and great ;]

@39 enewtabie & 42 Destiny89
I am located in NYC and I watch many Sports events such as the NBA finals and ESPN. I also watch Spike TV and Comedy Central. I saw a lot of video game commercial on Spike TV and within the past day, I seen about 7 GhostBuster the Video game commercial. Therefore, I am definitely not watching the wrong channels to see a PS3 commercial.

OK so far there is no screen tearing..Now just leave V-sync on in the final build and life will be good …

seph1r0th00 said:

June 23rd, 12:37 pm

Definitely my favorite game @ E3.

Congratulations Naughty Dog, you deserve it.

Carl-G said:

June 23rd, 12:38 pm

Good year for the PS3 :P
KZ2, inFamous, Flower, Uncharted 2, Ratchet&Clank:ACiT, MAG, Fat Princess, etc etc… :P

Just 1 thing SONY –

BRING BACK PS2 Playback to the PS3 PLZ ;)
