Uncharted 2 Extras

If you’re a fan of Sony’s new hit game, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, you might be interested in checking out the motion comic that’s been released for it on the PlayStation Network. It’s set before the first Uncharted game and sets up the character of Nathan Drake. It sounds a great idea to help market the game and it gives the current fans some more content. The first episode is free, but you’d have to pay for them after that.

Now i’m no marketing guru, but it would be to Sony’s advantage to make this available on other avenues before to long. They could make the motion comic available on iTunes or even on Sony’s website. It could help increase awareness of the Uncharted brand and increase console sales. With it only available on the PSN their preaching to the choir.

DLC will be coming to Uncharted 2 before the end of the year. Naughty Dog has also said that some of the DLC will be free. Their resources right now are completely dedicated to making more content for Uncharted 2. That’s great news for all the fans of the game.

It’s a great time to get a PS3. I don’t own one, and I probably won’t get one, but you should go buy one.

Keep on gaming people!


Uncharted 2: Number 2 seller for all

Recently I read the news that the PlayStation 3 exclusive title Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is the current number 2 seller for the month of October. I think that’s great news for the PS3. I can’t play it on my PC, but I’m still happy about it.

First reason it makes me happy is I hold a dark grudge against the Xbox 360. It’s become the Wal-Mart game system of choice and it’s lowering the bar for the rest of us. Cross platform games are generally developed with the 360 as the lead system resulting in lower graphics and performance. I understand why game companies do this. They need to make money to pay the bills.

Uncharted 2 is an amazing looking game using the Naughty Dog 2.0 and Havok engines. I don’t a game this awesome looking could run on the 360’s old hardware (it wasn’t that great to begin with). What I’m Hoping comes from this is more PS3/PC Exclusive games with higher graphics.

Games have fallen behind the current gen hardware and need to catch up. Uncharted 2 takes a bold step in that direction.

Now please let me have this on my PC.

Keep on gaming people!
