This would be great news if true. I just hope it's not something like new clothing and taunts, considering Naughty Dog Hype with it. Would not mind The Last of Us multiplayer skins :) or even Beta access

I wish UC2 MP would go F2P, to me it was the perfect 3PS.

Dunno why everyone is disagreeing. He did call it ages ago.....if this is true that is.

I disagreed because i don't think ones smugness over a silly little prediction adds anything to the discussion

Single player as well?

Free to play like Killzone 3 multiplayer.
Not hard to believe.
Irishguy95  +   588d ago
A free multiplayer trail you mean. F2P games are not the same as trials. Dunno how the press got that one mixed up
aquamala  +   588d ago
free to play til level 10 lol
abzdine  +   588d ago
multiplayer in 3D is great.
r21  +   589d ago
If its free 2 play, Im going to have to hold up on buying the GOTY edition of U3 then. Will wait till its confirmed though.
Software_Lover  +   589d ago
Why wait? Go ahead and buy the game. The FTP portion will only be for the multiplayer.
r21  +   589d ago
Well, if the MP is coming out, then I wont need to buy it unless theres like huge block outs like the KZ3 thing. I just miss playing the MP part of the game. Also, Im trying to save cash for to be released games and as much as i wanna get back into Uncharted again, I'd rather play something new this year like Ni No Kuni or DmC.
Nitrowolf2  +   589d ago
yeah if you haven't SP, then don't skip out
Crazyglues  +   589d ago
You know if this is true this might get me back on playing Online... would be cool to just have it on the hard-drive and not have to put in the disc...

Haven't played the multi-player in awhile but if it's true I'll definitely get back on..

I am an xbox owner and have never played unchartered.. but i know it is awesum and so will the last of us be...

I think this going free to play is the right time to pick a ps3...

BDW... both Xbox360 and Ps3 rock.. wii on the other hand Meh...

The Wii was fun for Monster Hunter as well as Muramasa. It had it's moments would have been more enjoyable with an F-Zero title though :(
Septic  +   588d ago
Yeah what happened to F Zero X and the like?!

Imagine 30 players racing online!
hellvaguy  +   589d ago
Wont be the last discounted or free offer we'll see over the next few months. Due to new consoles being released in the fall.
Software_Lover  +   589d ago
It has nothing to do with console releases. Its just a format that has been thriving on the PC and is making its way onto consoles.

Global Agenda
Star Wars
APB reloaded
Planetside 2

Just to name a few thriving ftp games that I have spent money in.

Uncharted 3 isn't out on the PC, so I don't really know where you went that at all. : (
Snookies12  +   588d ago
Software_Lover is saying that PC has a lot of Free to Play multiplayer games. That being the cause behind Uncharted 3's supposed move to free multiplayer. Console companies want to jump on board that F2P model like the PC ones are doing.
MasterCornholio  +   588d ago
I agree that the Wii (not the Wii U even though i dont like the controller) is a terrible console.
Kos-Mos  +   588d ago
I`ve never played it either because I think I will be disappointed. Yes, that`s the truth believe it or not.
XabiDaChosenOne  +   589d ago
I know people are going to clown me for this but I still have not played this game yet :-3 but man this rumor might make things difficult.
If it becomes free to play I would love that since that would mean I could hold of on the GOTY edition..kinda, but I still wanna play the campaign also :-( decisions decisions.
Software_Lover  +   589d ago
Uncharted is not know for its multiplayer....... is it?

Call me biased but there are only a few multiplayer games that I play a lot of. Uncharted 3 isn't one of them.
specsmatter  +   588d ago
Uncharted was initially known for its sp since part one didn't have an mp, but your wrong since UC2 the Uc series is known for its SP and MP. IF you go to Uc2 mp the lobbies are still full and Uc3 mp is played daily by thousands.

Uc3 is my go too mp exp. along with Starhawk and COD.
Imalwaysright  +   588d ago
No it isn't. CoD, Halo and BF are known for its multiplayer. Uncharted is known for its singleplayer.
Imalwaysright  +   588d ago
Im getting disagrees as if Uncharted being known for its singleplayer is something negative. Uncharted IS known for its singleplayer. All the awards that Uncharted got was because of the singleplayer campaign.
StoopKid9  +   588d ago
You're biased.
chukamachine  +   589d ago
I think the maps should be free for buyers of the game.

The system for mp is silly.

One map pack in front of another.
dgonza40  +   588d ago
I think the micro transactions for stupid things like taunts and those hats is stupid. Full skins, maps, and game modes should be the only things to pay for.
DFresh  +   589d ago
Too bad Naughty Dog nerfed UC3 to the point where it's no longer fun to play anymore.
specsmatter  +   588d ago
I play all the time and the only ppl crying about it are the ppl that use to use the op gmail and thought they were good bcus they would dominate teams using ak or m9.
DFresh  +   588d ago
I hardly even use the GMal.
The hit detection is way off.
Nobody aims in UC3 the majority blind fire.
KAL 7 has never been patched.
Once Patch 1.05 came out it ruined the game.
Kickbacks are overpowered and is just another stupid addition to attract COD players.
UC2 play style is what UC3 should of been but it never did accomplish that.
Before you call me an UC3 noob I've got a 1.88 K/D and 2.0 W/L.
Main weapons have always been the M9/Para Pistol.
Never used fleet foot, revenge, or other kick backs that weren't useful.

Ive noticed hit detection being off so i agree, but ppl complain about that in alot of games including COD. I still enjoy Uc3 mp just not as much as i use to enjoy uc2 mp.
LAZL0-Panaflex  +   588d ago
Uncharted 3 blows. Graphics are subpar. Bald dudes with pointy heads, elenas dummied down hair. Uncharted 3 should have been an upgrade not a downgrade.

Infamous 2 was an upgrade!
bobshi  +   588d ago
Author doesn't know the difference between QA and Q&A clearly.

No Quality Assurance hints at all.
L6RD7BLU3  +   588d ago
I don't know I think the title should be fix because i'm already playing Uncharted 3 and other games for free on the PS3 LOL XD!
Rupee  +   588d ago
So glad I paid $60 for it! /s
Braid  +   588d ago
And what's so wrong with it? You paid your money, you've been enjoying it since day one. They're not going to take your copy away and give it to some other gamer as a freebie, you know, you can keep on playing.
tommygunzII  +   588d ago
Uncharted 3 multiplayer is a lot of fun and well polished. It performs as well as the single player and has plenty of game modes. It would be awesome for everyone to experience it.
It would be a smart move by the developers since there is nothing to lose and plenty to gain. I'm sure Killzone 3 sold more copies when they did the same thing a year ago.
Grandmaster-B  +   588d ago
So all MP games which failed in view of the community will be F2P in the future.

Again, LMAO at SONY for the COD Sell-Out.

Instead of developing one of these 60fps styrofoam weapon CODurdis you broke 2 of your unique franchises....well done.

delboy  +   588d ago
If they didn't go with the online pass, maybe there would be more players online now.
Every game with online pass deserve to be bought used.
Silly gameAr  +   588d ago
Uncharted 3 is one of the most played mp games on PS3 and the community is very healthy. Luckily a lot of people don't think like you.
Grandmaster-B  +   588d ago
Jup, so healthy that you have huge amount of lag in every match.
LAZL0-Panaflex  +   588d ago
Uncharted 2 was brilliant...but part 3 was watered down C- crap. The textures were weak. The bald dudes had octagon heads. The reason they made it free is people like me quit playing after....we couldnt find matches!!

One thing is for sure,....im never buying dlc from sony again after, i paid full price for the fortune hunters club, all of the killzone 3 stuff.....then sony makes it free. Until they reimburse me or give me some free dlC somewheres else, they aint gettin another plus membership outta me or another penny on psn.

Pillsbury1  +   588d ago
I hope more games will offer just the multiplayer to buy, most of the time I don't touch the campaign.
stage88  +   588d ago
That would be a huge mistake with the Uncharted games.

Hozi  +   588d ago
Wait, what? FTP? I thought PS3 had free online multiplayer? what a surprise for me....havnt been online on a ps3 in over 2 years so yeah.
KwietStorm  +   588d ago
So seriously not sure if serious
Hozi  +   588d ago
I honestly was shocked when I heard it might become FTP....is it like you can play the game, but you have to buy certain things if you want to unlock them? kinda like an FTP MMO and it's cash shop?


So I decided to research this, I found out that the PS3 Online games come with a pass if new, and if you buy the game used you'd have to buy the online pass separately to be able to play online?...Did I get it right?

Free to play means you don't buy the game, which usually has a lot of microtransactions available. There are countless f2p games on PC over the years, and there are already some on PS3. PlayStation Network is free, yes, but that has nothing to do with the f2p business model.
Hozi  +   585d ago
Aha....I see. Thanks for explaining.
IWentBrokeForGaming  +   588d ago
People bash Uncharted 3 but forget that this entire franchise is probably thee best looking one of this entire gen of systems!
Hicken  +   588d ago
Oh, they don't forget. They just turn a blind eye to it. Makes it easier to bash that way, you see.
doogiebear  +   588d ago
What does graphics have to do with gameplay?
BLAKHOODe  +   588d ago
Depends. To some, nothing at all. To others, like myself, great graphics allow me to immerse myself into the game, which enhances the game play for me. Kinda the same effect music has on people listening to it while they do stuff. It helps ease and relax.
Flandy  +   588d ago
With all the micro transactions this game has it doesn't surprise me it's going f2p
TechOne  +   588d ago
ugh,I just bought the GOTY edition. :|
BLAKHOODe  +   588d ago
I never got into Uncharted's multiplayer, but the single player campaign was great. Not as good as Uncharted 2's, but still great.
isa_scout  +   588d ago
Uncharted 3's MP is horrible now. Half the time I can't tell what I've unlocked just by playing because of all the damn shopping carts. It feels like a micro-transaction eccentric free to play game already. You want this gun 10 levels sooner? Dollar please. You want a new tee shirt for your character? Dollar please, What about a new taunt move? Dollar please...I absolutely love Naughty Dog's videogames, but when the hell did they get so damn greedy?
taijutsu363  +   588d ago
What do they mean by FTP? That maps will be free? Or?
