I second the Comment about the Canadian Psblog this is getting ridiculous.

We are excluded from absolutely everything but we fork over our money to support the company.

Really really ridiculous I freaking love Uncharted and Sony but this has got me really down. Uncharted was the only game I 100% cause it was so freaking good.

BlingOnMyWrist said:

October 9th, 6:27 pm

I so want to win, but I know I will most likely not win. 30 out of what, at least 6,000?
1/200 chance… :( I wish they were giving away more than 30.

spritle2000 said:

October 9th, 6:29 pm

Uncharted 2 is going to be such a huge step for the gaming industry. I will definitely be playing this every day for a chance to win this rare prize.

October 9th, 6:34 pm

Hey,

Yeah, so glad to be European right now…I’m a huge fan, a have a website, stats card, and yet, it won’t help me. So sad. :(

Can’t you just give a few out to Europeans? You have fans out there, you know. :(

I am sorry but this is ****ing retarded. How come Canada has no chance of getting prizes? This is just getting flipping ridiculous…

jqtaxpayer said:

October 9th, 6:38 pm

Thank you for making it so that more playing doesn’t mean more chances… I don’t have the kind of free time some of these folks do, lol.

Anyway, good news… money’s been tight so hopefully I can win a copy.

slyjak said:

cronqvist said:

Stoffinator said:

October 9th, 6:58 pm

I’d rater just be able to buy it.

BusterKnight said:

October 9th, 6:59 pm

I am really disappointed that Canadians are not eligible. I hope that there will be a future contest where Canadians will be able to enter.

jimmyfoxhound said:

October 9th, 7:02 pm

Dang, I’m from the US and I gotta say this is baloney about excluding Canada & Latin America after readin the comments on here. I wish Sony would address this somehow. Maybe hold a drawing on the blog for those people in the Americas who cannot participate in this sort of thing. Wasn’t it a PR person who made this blog post? Couldn’t they… hmmm.. I don’t know, do some PUBLIC RELATING? Come on, Sony.

EliteHitokiri said:

October 9th, 7:02 pm

Well, I feel bad for anybody that gets excluded from this. I’m sure it’s a legal thing and not personal. Alot of countries get bonuses, swag, and system bundles the US don’t get though. Like I beleave Europe is getting a hardware bundle. But to my Canadian friends I post this from the Bestbuy live chat with devs Neil Druckmann and Travis Mcintosh that went on last night:

Guest-83: Will Canada ever get a chance to see the Fortune Hunter Edition?

NeilD-Dev: Yes! Canada will be getting the Fortune Hunter Edition.

So don’t sweat it guys, it seems they have something planned for you guys too.

EliteHitokiri said:

October 9th, 7:03 pm

Well, thanks for not making this stats based as I have been in all betas but have had limited time to play it. Plus I’m all ocd about replaying the 1st 1 for the platinum before playing this 1. I beat it long ago before trophy support. Well, thanks again Naughty Dog! You made a great game and you should be very proud. I’m a pretty diehard xbox360 gamer and PS3 gamer, a legit Veteran Gear, and I’ve been completely obcessed with anything Uncharted related. I say that not to start a fanboy thing as that not my intent. I like both systems and I think it’s a shame some people only play one or the other. My point I love my Gears and Halo but if I wasn’t so open minded I may have missed out on one of the best games ever! Uncharted1 is one of my fav games and i can’t wait! On that note I think it’s pretty awesome Naughty Dog shared technical knowledge between others studios like Infinity Ward, guerilla, and bungie in the making of Uncharted 2. Your effort and hard work to make the best game possible seem to have really paid off. Thanks again and good luck to all with this play&win Uncharted 2 Fortune Edition Contest.

AJC3317 said:

October 9th, 7:40 pm

So you just need to play one game for that day and you will be legible. Hmm, bad thing about this is that if you win, it’s already after U2 has already launched so if for some miracle that I win, I will end up with 2 copies. Hmm…

GameBoss01 said:

October 9th, 7:40 pm

October 9th, 7:54 pm

So do I understand that you only need to log on once per day to be entered? Or does multiple matches help your odds?

NewYork214 said:

October 9th, 7:54 pm

hope there is another way. PoS PS3 broke on me and waiting for it to get back from repair shop.

xMichio said:

October 9th, 7:56 pm

I’m Canadian and though I am a little unreleased that us neighbors up north get the shaft once again, I already have the game pre-ordered and will be playing it soon. This just reminds me of how the Canadian and American PSN stores are so identical yet we get the shaft when it comes to video content :(
