GE: "Uncharted 3's multiplayer appears to be heading down the free-to-play path."
Sony did say they were moving to a free to play mode with some of there games.
Yeah, this is part of their long-term strategy with the PS3 after the PS4 is out
Haven't played UC3 MP for months. Can't wait for TLoU MP!
this would be great I wanted to buy uncharted 3 just for the multiplayer. I liked uncharted 2 multiplayer alot.
A free to play Model with some of their games. Corrected my mistakes.
So this could be the Uncharted surprise....the one which has been hyped up for ages. Sorry but if it's true that's lame...well for people who got hyped over the announcement anyway. I was expecting something less...predictable
It is. It was up on the PSBlog, I saw it, but I think they took that part down (probably waiting for ND to announce it first). The game is so tricked out for the F2P model, so it makes perfect sense
Free is a bad for consumer now? lol only on N4G.Anyway, F2P mode is future for both Pc and consoles games.
No. F2P PC gaming will not last long with the high piracy rate or will die in favor of P2W. Console F2P secures future purchases of the IP franchise and/or brand.
Yes the piracy rate on free games is crazy... I really hope you are trolling BoNE because that is the dumbest comment I have seen in a long time.
He's saying F2P is the future DUE to piracy killing games.
Cool, cant wait :D
so wait how does this work do we get access to the goty edition maps and the works? im trying to figure out if thats the case would i get access to those extras with my regular copy?
How can you not respect Sony. Only Sony lets you play the multi player portion of AAA 92 Metascore rated games for free.
Uncharted 3 has a lot of DLC that they will continue to charge for, F2P opens up that revenue potential significantly. Just business.
it deserves much more money than any other multiplayer out there.... just a few bug fixes n believe me kitty nothing is better than this
Killzone 3 MP however has every map and mode. Except Lvl 10 is the cap.
Because barely anyone plays UC3 and KZ3 multiplayer. Probably not even in the top 10 most played games on PSN. Free to play is attempt to keep them alive.
Strongman, you work for Sony or something? Everything coming from you is like an Obama's speech. I have All the Uncharted and sadly, hardly anyone is playing on the server, so why not give it for free. I do praise Sony for that though as I have really enjoy my time for the DC Universe game, which is also free.
I kind of suspected it.
Blah...U3 MP was lame and felt like a third person cod with all the perks and crap.U2 MP was much better.
AGREE!!!!!!! I played loads of UC2 MP but just didn't get into UC3 MP. Shame I used my online code to even activate it (then sold the game for less because of that). The online pass was totally pointless if they are going to give it FREE to everyone now!? W*****S
Disagree, I played U3 a lot more because its more fun be happy man, its not like they are taking something away from you, they just give it to others. be happy for them
@ultr _ I don't care either way about the free MP, I just don't like online passes, is that OK with you? :)
So true Gimmicks RUINED Uncharted 3 U2 was more about skill They need to change this in Uncharted 4, put a focus on the classic playlist.
I enjoyed Uncharted 2 better than 3 honestly. I cant even finish it.
I agree, although I did finish Uncharted 3. The pacing of Uncharted 2's multiplayer was much more enjoyable also in my opinion.
Do people still play?
I didn't finish Uncharted 3 either. I had no desire to do so. UC2 was incredible single playerwise though. As far as multiplayer, I liked Uncharted 3 better. Guns felt like they had more umph and sprinting makes a HUGE difference.
Definitely agree. I did finish 3 cos I like to finish all the uncharteds (as one of my favourite series on PS3), but it was so linear and focussed on set pieces vs 2 which was epic and beautiful to look at. It already looked 'next gen' at the end of 2 when you were fighting your way out of the tree place along those golden stone platforms (nice DOF there)... 3 was good, great in places (the ship in the rain, the water jetties etc) but far too much of it took control from the player's hands for the sake of 'look at this flash cinematic' - essentially it took my least favourite parts of UC2 and ramped them up for 3 when I'd hoped for a return more to Uncharted 1's self - pacing and exploratory style. I hope UC4 on PS4 goes back somewhere between 1 and 2 to nail it, because if goes more like 3 that would be a sad thing. That stuff like walking through gaps in the wall.. slooowly.. in 3 etc? was made to 'look good' but NOT play good and I hate that!!! I remember at first not liking 2 as much as 1 as I felt it had shifted too much emphasis onto gunplay over exploring but I finally came to love it as it had a good balance and pacing, and the shooting was actually very fun and addictive. 3 Didn't feel anywhere near as good - exploring nor gunplay - felt rushed, while the set pieces were ramped up.. the whole 'am dizzy/drugged' sequence went on far too long, as did the rooftop chase and prologue, as did the ending with everything collapsing - more that it was barely interactive. I found they took more control away from the player for the sake of presenting a movie like story and that is never good imo, I prefer to make my own memories as much as possible not sit there with my controller on my lap - useless - watching some dev's fantasy play out on screen... GIVE ME CONTROL, that is why I bought a GAME not a FILM!! :)
This is what i thought when they said they had a big announcement.
Wait, since when did Uncharted make people pay for online? I don't remember that all in U2.
You had to purchase the game to play the MP. On Tuesday you will be able o download th online portion of the game for free.
Well... that kind of makes sense. Of course you have to pay for the game in order to play the game. So this means, what, they'll just be offering the MP side of the game off the PSN for free as a kind of demo?
Ill get it since i lost my activation code and you have to pay 9 bucks to get one. I use to dominate the mp but now its full mexicans playing. Not being racist but the majority of people on it are mexicans and its hard to communicate.
