UNCHARTED 2 Demo Ended – More Chances to Win the Fortune Hunter Edition

Asad Qizilbash's Avatar Posted by Vice President, Marketing, SIEA


Hope you guys have been enjoying the multiplayer demo these past two weeks. Remember that UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves goes on sale as early as midnight tonight at over 800 GameStop stores (Check here for store locations).

The main reason for this post is that we just got word that the multiplayer demo ended earlier today and unfortunately we won’t be able to get it back up before the game launches. So for those who wanted to get on and play some UNCHARTED 2 multiplayer goodness, you’re going to have to wait a few short hours till the game goes on sale.

I know we had a contest running with a chance to win 10 Fortune Hunter Editions every day Saturday through Monday…so here is what we’re going to do. For Saturday and Sunday we’re going to increase the number of Fortune Hunter Edition prizes from 10 to 20 each day. For Monday, we’re going to honor the contest by drawing 10 winners from all those who logged on this morning.

Chances to win the Fortune Hunter Edition don’t stop there. This weekend, if you own the game and are planning to play online, we’ll be randomly drawing names Friday – Sunday with a total of 30 Fortune Hunter Editions up for grabs. Contest rules to follow. Keep checking back to the Blog for more ways to win the Fortune Hunter Edition.

Sorry for the inconvenience…just a couple more hours left. Hey, if any of you plan to pick up the game at midnight, would love to hear what you think of it.

I’m very excited about this game and I even paid it in advance. I was hoping to get it on midnight but they canceled all the Gamestop midnight of launch in Puerto Rico .

My copy ships tomorrow from Amazon. I took advantage of their great trade in prices. So I won’t be playing at midnight but I’m looking forward to it!

I just finished the game from getting it in the Private Event in San Francisco and to be honest, it’s the most satisfying game I’ve had (that isn’t a party game) in a very very long time. Now just to play the game in “Crushing”

Been playing the multiplayer demo since the June beta. I can’t wait for this game. Just over 6 hours here in Southern California.
Little Monday Night Football and Persona on PSP will get me through till it is time to don the half-tuck and start shooting bad guys.

The situation was handled well and the communication is much appreciated. I don’t play online multi-player games much, but I enjoyed the first game so much that I wanted to play the U2 beta. I actually met some decent people to party up with.

I will pick up my BB pre-order copy tomorrow. This is the first game that I will have to decided if I play single or multi-player first. Ha!

    The single player is EPIC and the multiplayer is great fun…sorry, that hasn\’t helped your decision. Either way, let us know what you think of the game.

That sucks. I’ll have to wait till after school tomorrow to play it. Good thing there is no install for Uncharted, cause that demo took up alot of my space.

Berae said:

packy17 said:

October 12th, 5:52 pm

Picking up my copy tomorrow… Beta was awesome. But I woke up too late today and the beta had already closed:(… But I got in for the drawings both of the earlier days… So I’m hopeful

Thanks for increasing the chances to win on Saturday & Sunday, since I did not have a chance to play before it expired because of work.

Please bring out some kind of special edition for sale. Was dassapointed there wasn’t a special edition game and hardbook guide for sale. It’s Uncharted 2, it deserves that kind of treatment.

For those who didn’t get to try the demo, I think the immortal words of Socrates applies.
“…If thou dost snoozum, thou dost loozum.” (or something like that)

I am planning on picking up the game tomorrow and I’m super excited, but all the reviews I have read say I should play uncharted before I play uncharted 2. I am a new PS3 owner, and I don’t have the funds to buy both games. I played the demo and I love it, but can I still enjoy the story of Uncharted 2 without playing the first uncharted? and is there anywhere I could possibly find a backstory to uncharted or something that will catch me up. Thanks.

    hfwplaya08 – there are a few jokes and references that relate to the first game, but not so much that you\’ll be lost.

    fyi..most places are selling the Uncharted: Drakes Fortune for $30.

I was quite upset. I planned on logging on to throw my name in the ring and it wasn’t up anymore. And I can’t get it at midnight cause I pre-ordered at Best Buy but I’m gonna be there as the doors are opening.

Zinacef said:

S-s-sarah said:

Gee, that’s sensible. People have to already have the game in order to re-win it? ._____.

I can only hope I get the game through GameFly. *sigh*

BusterKnight said:

October 12th, 6:21 pm

Still kind of sucks that the contest this weekend that didn’t include Canadians is now getting more copies to give out. I am picking up my copy tomorrow and I hope the contest for next weekend allows for Canadians to enter.

Wow it looks so awesome, dang I wished it was available for purchase :( I’m just patiently waiting for the Midnight release at GameStop. I was hurt this morning when I couln’t log on, me and my friend where eating some breakfast and were talkin about the game and how I was doing pretty good and how some players started talkin trash because I had a rank of “IV” saying things like “This is your life”,”Piece of Isht”, I really was just laughin at how people reacted at my rank. This happened more than once it occured while the game was loading(Where you see Pictures and Coins Scattered). Well Its 8:12pm so far, patiently waiting till I get my Copy of Uncharted 2, I’m instanstly going to get on it haha especially thinking of how “Adam Sessler” mentioned how he tip toed from bed at 6am just so happy to know he will have the whole day to play with Uncharted 2.

I have to wait for the morning to pick my game up. This is FU since I wanna play now. Then again I’m gonna get Brutal Legend tomorrow too so this couple days are gonna be Brutally Uncharted for me :)

Rated-G said:

October 12th, 6:37 pm

Aw man… I wish I’d seen this earlier, I had planned since Uncharted 2 was announced that I would play through the first one on Crushing… again, (making it my 4th crushing playthrough, 13th playthrough period) the day before release.

I was planning on playing multiplayer in the demo as soon as I finished. I’m two chapters from the end of Drake’s Fortune, and now I’m unable to enter for today… I wish I hadn’t taken that break in the Monastery…

I think I was able to enter Saturday, I hope I was, I really hope I can get my hands on the fortune hunter edition…

EurekaBlu said:

October 12th, 6:50 pm

Ahhh, I never knew about a midnight released =[
I’ve already pre-ordered it xD
I’m so excited to play it, you have no idea.

Two of my friends are actually coming over because they want to see how the story is and I have two of my brothers waiting to play the game themselves xD

Hope everyone enjoys it add midnight!

Oh No, I’m being so teased. My old home’s town has a midnight release, but my current town does not. Not to mention that I never get to play my PS3 until I go back to my mom’s house – each weekend. I get to go get my game tomorrow and then just let it sit, knowing that I have it but can’t play it until thursday/friday. Late Again
