Anrkey said:

October 9th, 4:32 pm

This really sucks for me. Uncharted is one of my favorite games of all time. The same day the demo went public, I went home to download it and turned my PS3 on and got the Yellow Light of Death. My repaired PS3 won’t be back from Sony until Tuesday (if it stays on schedule). So I haven’t been able to play the demo and now I won’t even have the chance to win this.

Nick-30 said:

October 9th, 4:33 pm

I need this.
Im pumped to try and win this. I probably won’t but hopefully i do.

Cheddare said:

October 9th, 4:33 pm

DiscriminatioN!Canadians are people to. We love uncharted for the same reasons the rest of the world does. We love its great story,Phenomenal graphics, its witty humor, We love its over the top gun battles.

We love all the extras Naughty Dog puts into the game/s as well with all the extra hero skins.

Why can’t we have the chance to love the collectors edition of one of the best games of all time?

I hope there is something you can do for us Canadians who love Uncharted as much as anyone else. I know there isn’t as many of us (compared to the US) all we are asking for is a chance.

can people on puerto rico win the fortune hunter edition?

Superbeens said:

October 9th, 4:39 pm

Sony please do us all a favour and change your name. Currently you are Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. but due to your singular support of just the 50 united states I think you would be better served by a name change to Sony Computer Entertainment United States of America Inc.
Perhaps if you don’t plan on changing your name you could speak to Sony Computer Entertainment Europe for help, they seem to be much more capable of supporting consumers from multiple countries.
I know this post will receive no reply because it’s not about kissing your backside but I thought I would post it anyway.

October 9th, 4:39 pm

This game is going to be awesome, too bad naughty dog and playstation messed up a little by excluding Canada. Really wanted it, oh well as the old saying goes “When life gives you lemons you make lemonade”

jonesoda said:

October 9th, 4:42 pm

Gothdom said:

gekko1986 said:

October 9th, 4:49 pm

Is this the last opportunity to win one? My PS3 has the YLOD, so instead of being slim my chances are now none. Will some websites be giving one away?

SpyDudeFX said:

October 9th, 4:49 pm

So play once per day for three days? It sounds like it’s one entry per day per person, is that right?

Andronicus said:

jayyy91 said:

October 9th, 4:50 pm

Thanks.

Thwip said:

tryser said:

October 9th, 5:28 pm

this is gonna be awesome, it’s autographed by the naughty dog guys!

Eva_3rd_Child said:

October 9th, 5:29 pm

I’ve yet to make a comment on the Blog, but I feel compelled to do so after this. Reading about this awesome contest only to have my hopes crushed when I read that it’s for the US only is completely unfair.

I hope you guys realize that you have fans that exist outside the states. And I hope you also understand how unfair you are being with this contest. Not just with the contest, but with other things like the video store as well.

I understand that there may be legal barriers that block you from the making the contest and other services available here as well…but as fans of Sony, Naughty Dog, and Uncharted, we deserve better. I’m sure that you can run a separate but identical contest for fans outside of the US. Or find a way to include other countries next time. Is it really so much to ask for?

bashbro25 said:

October 9th, 5:31 pm

man i hope to god i’m lucky enough to win this AWESOME PRIZE!!!!!! best collectors edition EVER MADE!!!!

Chubbums said:

October 9th, 5:36 pm

I really hope you guys have a system that’ll keep people from cheating in entries. We all know PSN lets you create various alts and hopefully it doesn’t get abused for this contest. I’m hoping you guys can cross reference user information for shadyness.

October 9th, 5:36 pm
