I had the same problem. The expiration date on my demo said October 12th at 11am (I am on CST), I thought it would be going until the time posted above. I tried deleting the demo, downloading then installing it again but that did no good (even though I half suspected it wouldnt matter). I was really hoping to get in the running for a copy today :(

JupiterUnleashed said:

October 12th, 11:20 am

what’s going on? i can’t get into the demo…

NintendoTim said:

October 12th, 11:30 am

Yea, what the crap?

Contest ends tonight at 11:59PM. My expiration on the demo is Noon!

Good job, Sony. You just screwed a lot of people out winning on the third day. Thanks.

NintendoTim said:

October 12th, 11:36 am

Sorry, I should be a bit more specific:

The expiration date on the demo reads 10/12 @ Noon. I’m on the East Coast, so the contest technically ends for me at 2:59AM on 10/13, considering we’re 3 hours ahead.

However, that doesn’t matter because my demo expired 2.5 hours ago while I was repairing my router to make sure I COULD play the demo today to get my name entered (I did play Saturday and Sunday, however).

Again, thanks.

As other people here seem to have experienced, the “raffle” for the Fortune Hunter edition is still open – unfortunately, as the demo has expired, no one can attend. Seems like a lack of communication somewhere.

i played this morning just to be entered in the beta. then i go online in the forums and here its expired so nobody can enter to win the FHE anymore. when i played there was roughly over 6000 players online.

C’mon Sony ive been supporting you guys since day one and yet you guys give all the loyal supporters in Canada the cold shoulder… man and i thought this was actually coming to canada and Jill Weber if there’s anything you can do can you do it? anyways thanks

MarsX69 said:

October 12th, 1:50 pm

I am having the same problem. My demo says it expired already. What the heck is that all about? Why is there an expiration date anyway? What ever happened to “play till the retail servers go live”?

Mosh_Pit said:

October 12th, 2:36 pm

Screw Canada I guess…

Miles514 said:

NintendoTim said:

October 12th, 3:07 pm

@ SkyeWolf – I never did think to email ND about it. Thanks for the reminder; did just that.

They should also get on updating the stats online faster than say, oh, two days?

SkyeWolf said:

October 12th, 3:16 pm

Thanks Nintendo Tim, and for others that want to E-mail Naughty dog here is their E-mail adress

October 12th, 3:37 pm

Man, I can’t believe it! I missed the third day! UGH!!!!!

SilverPig said:

October 12th, 3:46 pm

@314 Dude, EVERYONE missed the 3rd day. I logged on at 9 in the morning to play, but it said it expired. At 11 in the morning that day.

So it expired from the future, or something.

Mephie said:

October 12th, 3:54 pm

I saw this late Sunday night, and figured I would try to enter the contest after work on Monday. When I got home and tried it, I received a message saying that the demo had expired. Thanks a lot for misinforming us about the contest timeline and ruining my only chance to win a Fortune Hunter Edition.

lostinplainsight said:

October 12th, 4:00 pm

oii why did the contest end early i tried playing the demo and it said it was expired

SkyeWolf said:

October 12th, 4:02 pm

on a technical note. isn’t the validity of the 3rd day completly void.

Narutofreak1 said:

October 12th, 4:06 pm

Wow. This is such BS. Oh well.

jaarlask said:

surferdude89 said:

October 12th, 4:32 pm

I hope they fix this….also why does a DEMO have an experation date anyways??

The plus is that the demo makes me want to buy the game now (but no money :( )

The demo ends at midnight regardless. Just sucks they ended before anyone could sign in.

SledKnight said:

October 12th, 7:34 pm

Uhhh… that’s nice, the beta ended early…

“Log on and play the UNCHARTED 2 online Multiplayer Demo from Saturday, October 10, 2009 at 12:01 AM PST through Monday, October 12, 2009 at 11:59 PM PST.”

It’s only 7:30pm PST… can I get a FHE for PSN posting invalid date/time windows?


SledKnight said:

October 12th, 7:37 pm

On the bright side, I did get to play this morning at 8:30 EST… maybe I’m the only one of 10 others and will get the FHE automatically… LOL (keep dreaming, right?)

I would also like to voice that I did in fact try to login and play today after my work day. It is still even now before the contest end time. I had to go to college and work today, thats hardly fair so I thought I would come here and voice that I have been playing, and tried to enter myself today, but I could not. I would find it in good taste to at least let those of us who are commenting on this before contest end to throw our names in the hat for todays contest. I tried, I’m trying now, the contest isn’t over, apparently my copy expired at 10 am today. I am hoping this is a mixup, and that the demos were perhaps by accident marked to expire one day too early. and we can still be added to the pool. I really wanted a chance at this. Would be nice to see a response on the blog or to get an email. Thanks and heres to hoping for the best.

Musoka_Eimin said:

October 12th, 9:59 pm

And for those asking why the demo ends at all, it has been stated and posted that the demo ends on release date as the servers used for the beta, which is the demo, those servers are being converted for use by players on the final game build.

secularsage said:

surferdude89 said:

October 20th, 6:39 pm

So much for rules?….They should give out a few more copies (maybe just regular editions)?

xMisterSinisteRx said:

slyjak said:

October 20th, 8:25 pm

I thought the results were going to be posted yesterday. Anybody know when it will be posted?

devraj0109 said:

October 20th, 8:25 pm

oh please…no more teasing…release the results already

devraj0109 said:

October 20th, 8:29 pm

by the way…wouldn’t it be great if because of that server mishap they lost data about who played and then end up using forum post to decide the winners…oh who am i kidding, with my luck I still won’t win :(

GotDayum said:

October 21st, 10:03 am

yea Im waiting on results also….hopefully I won. I really like the game. Plus I never seem to win anything. So good luck to everyone!!

Teranyx said:

October 21st, 10:04 pm

I wish they would announce the results already.

QrafTee said:

October 22nd, 10:13 am

Well, I think they will post the winners no later than Oct 30, 2009 because that’s the last date the winners will be notified; so I’m not sure why they said they were expecting to post the winners on the 19th. Maybe they meant Nov 19, 2009 to ramp up production of these limited edition games? I think Naughty Dog didn’t account for Monday’s demo closing earlier and having to change the prize to 20/20/10 for the demo giveaway and 10/10/10 for the retail online giveaway–they overshot by 20 copies of the limited-edition.
