Uncharted 2 Multiplayer Equal to Gears of War 3.0?

Split-screen: "Some of the multiplayer features for Naughty Dog's Uncharted 2 include 'in & out cover, blindfire, coop moves like moving things obstructive paths, destroying walls with RPG, 3-player cooperative mode, playing as Uncharted new/old characters and regions within the new plot, 2 different variants for the Competitive mode, common 5v5 team deathmatch mode & single capture the flag modes,' according to Jake Osuwah, Sony PR. 'Uncharted 2 Multiplayer is very well structured…they brought the single player essence into MP now more specifically.' Which is all well and good. But is Uncharted 2's multiplayer equivalent to Gears of War 3, even hypothetically?"

If it equals Gears 3 then that means it surpasses Gears 2.

And since Gears 3 isn't announced,then that means that Naughty Dog have conquered time.Only a God can conquer time,therefore,the "Dog" in Naughty Dog should be reversed so it appropriately reflects what they have achieved.

I'm bored,someone send me a link to a Cat doing something stupid or something.

silly fools..

Vicodin3398d ago

"so because of the cover system this becomes gears or war?"

It should become Kill.switch, because that is what Gears of War copied their cover system from.

gamesmaster3398d ago (Edited 3398d ago )

an announced game is equal to an unannounced game?

err.. what?

EDIT: hah its even funnier that the notion was stated by a Sony PR?! i think he took it out of context a little though.

split-screen article from another perspective...

OmarJA3398d ago

Here's a comment with more sense :

- Gears of War 3 will look exactly the same like it's predecessor.

- Gears of War 3 will be on the PS3 also.

- Uncharted 3's multiplayer will be better than Gears of War 3's.

Defectiv3_Detectiv33398d ago

But one thing is for sure, between Uncharted 2 and Quantuum theory Gears is going to have some healthy competition.

Bnet3433398d ago

*sigh* here we go again .....

GiantEnemyCrab3398d ago

"Here's a comment with more sense :"

That comment didn't make any sense either.

Have things gotten so spun out of reality we are comparing games that don't even exist?

CaseyRyback_CPO3398d ago

it happens when there is absolutely no game news to cover for the 360 outside of job wanted ads.

Why o why3398d ago

ouch man, uncalled for :)

sniper-squeak3398d ago

That was the best creative pun I have read on N4G lol... Bubbles for you :D and bubbles for everyone! (who buy's a PS3 and plays Uncharted 2 lol)

GiantEnemyCrab3398d ago (Edited 3398d ago )

Spoken like a true ignorant fanboy Casey.. No surprise here.

Currently Playing:

Halo Wars
Ninja Blade
X-Men Orgins
Fallout 3 : Broken Steel
A bunch of misc XBLA titles

What new games are you playing on the PS3? You make it sound like once a game is a month old it's no longer worth playing.

As much as you and the other PS3 zealots on this site are spending your days trying to bash a console you hate just know you are losing that fight man. The 360 is strong and looks to only be getting stronger.. And no 2 bit hack website making up bullflop claims is going to change that.

@Ulti: Yes, it happens on both sides but one side is deafening in their volume while the others are just an occasional troll here and there. My comment is talking about the examples right here in front of us. Point me to a PS3 game thread where there are a bunch of 360 trolls and I will type this same message.

Do you not see the problem with this story? Why not just come out and say "Uncharted 2 Multiplayer is Excellent". Why make a comparison to a Gears game? And a Gears game that doesn't even exist? Flamebait simple as that and you can see by the response from N4G that it was mission accomplished.

Listen to your own comment. 2 YEARS AGO! So I would say any payback is now paid in FULL. The PS3 wasn't bashed for more than 2 years but I will say during that 2 years the 360 was being bashed by PS3 fans just not as loud. So now they've had 2 years to flap their gums in some childish payback scenario but now it's gone past that.

ultimolu3398d ago

Okay Crab, so what are 360 fanboys doing? Aren't they doing the exact same thing? Bashing a console they don't own?

The PS3 is getting strong too. Lots of games coming out between this year and next year.

If you want to talk about "PS3 zealots", then talk about "360 zealots" as well.

Now 360 fanboys know how it feels when their console is bashed because they did the same crap with the PS3 two years ago.

silverchode3398d ago

fanboys can really hold a grudge

menoyou3398d ago (Edited 3398d ago )

uncharted is just on a whole other level than gears. gears 2 is a cheap rehashed game compared to uncharted 2. not to mention the online in gears has always been horrible.

also marked as spam for a lame opinion piece

7ero H3LL3398d ago (Edited 3398d ago )

well, WAY more people play gears of war than uncharted, if their is ANY popular 3rd person online tactical shooter out there that ps3 has it wouldn't be uncharted, it would be MGS online, and even that game falls in comparison to gears's online record.

edit, this reminds me of the "killzone2 VS halo3" competition in terms of online popularity.

Ju3398d ago

MGO (MGS online) would be a nice 3rd person game - if they wouldn't be so stupid to ignore the PSN ID and use their own Konami ID nobody wants.

So, that leaves the 3rd person games to Socom Confrontation and Warhawk (still played a lot these days!). Uncharted is a single player game - currently, so why even compare. And then, there is a strong FPS side which draws people away, what you want ? UC2 will have an impact for sure.

Power_Of_Flops_3398d ago

Nice post gump, you made me laugh. Have a bubble.

Chris_GTR13398d ago

you know,ps3 fanboys are so damn retarded. i remember 2 years ago i said .' i would buy uncharted if it had multiplayer because a 8 hour game with no mp = no buy from me' and i was flooded by dumbass ps3 fanboys saying 'uncharted isnt a game that will work for multiplayer' and all that bs. now here we are 2 years later and it has multiplayer.

rockleex3398d ago

Cat reaction after seeing Naughty Dog conquer time!

And this one is just plain funny.

rockleex3398d ago

Here's some links to his comments about Epic and Gears.

He talks to Geoff Keighley about Epic's plans:

He talks as if he's played Gears 3:

Not only that, there's rumors going around that Epic is developing a horror game exclusively for the PS3!

There's DEFINITELY something going on!

PS360PCROCKS3398d ago

Forrest and the few others that is the satire and humor I used to love about this site. Lmao that was a great comment and those cat videos were plain awesome.

Silly gameAr3398d ago

Gears is easily my favorite franchise on the Xbox 360. If Uncharted 2 can do Multiplayer as well or better than Gears, I might have a favorite new Multiplayer game besides Gears and Killzone.

pain777pas3398d ago

This is a game not Gears. Gears is not like this game. This is like inFamous in the sense that its just as much a platformer as it is a shooter. Way more freedom than Gears. Jump button and all that. Way more expressive this game is gonna be great I'll be in beta soon.

shawnsl653398d ago

Crab sure has lots of time to be playing all those games. I barely have enough time to play any games. Trying to finish Valkyria Chronicles before I even start on Infamous. Only game I get to play during break at work is Dota for WC3. Good job crab, shows you have plenty of time on your hands to play some mediocre games.

Andras843398d ago

ohhh, I had a laugh. You are a funny little man aren't you?? I just can't take you seriously because you are so funny.

So what am I playing as a PS3 user...let's see.

inFamous, Killzone 2, UFC09, Resident Evil 5, flOwer, Burn Zombie Burn, SF4, Bionic Commando, X-man Wolverine, soon Uncharted 2 beta.

If you can list multiplat games than I can too.

The 360 is very week now. No new games that are actually good. This year the 360 is weak so far...and will end the year week by the look of things. Unlike the PS3 which has a very strong lineup for the fall.

That would be: Uncharted 2, Heavy Rain, MAG, Ratchet & Clank a Crack in Time, I don't even wanna go into the PSN games.

As for the 360: Forza 3 maybe and than what??? Some DLC for GTA4 and Halo 3??? don't make me laugh!!

You just have a hard time accepting that 08 and 09 is the PS3's year not the 360's.

aksmashh3397d ago

The Only Similarities They Have Is The Cover System & They Both Have Good Graphics. This Sounds Quiet Different With The Platforming & Puzzle Stuff You Can Do Aswell As Deathmatch

To Me Gears MP Was All Quiet Similar But The Graphics Online Were Crazy, For Me It Took Killzone MP To Over Take It & Thats 3 Years After Gears 1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

God I hope not.

Sony and Naughty Dog have higher standards than that broken disaster of an online game.

Uncharted 2 Multiplayer Equal To Uncharted 2 Multiplayer

End of story. Stupid gaming media needs to cover the game, not their own stupid fanboy agendas.

Nike3398d ago (Edited 3398d ago )

The headline is basically asking if what Jake Osuwah, a Sony PR, thinks is true or not. If anything, he's trying to point out how great Uncharted 2's multiplayer is but even if it's own opinion, what's the basis given that nothing is known about Gears 3? No one, not even gaming journalists, ask that question without SOMETHING to back their views up. But hey, free speech and all.

This was taken from his official account. That's why it's under "News".

Read the actual story before commenting out of ignorance, please.

Vicodin3398d ago

Nowhere does Jake Osuwah mention any other game than Uncharted 2.

Stop filling this site with gaming media fanboy garbage.

Nike3398d ago

From his official Twitter account:

"SOLELY my OPINION from playtesting/playing both games respectively; UNCHARTED 2:Multiplayer=Gears of War 3.0. Naughty Dog outdid themselves!"

Vicodin3398d ago

LOL! Twitter?

A comment on his personal twitter account.

You have to be F-ing joking.

Gamers want information about games, not fanboy drivel like this garbage article.

What features does the game have.
When is it coming out.

Information, solid and reliable information. Not fanboy wars garbage.

Nike3398d ago

On N4G, there have been plenty of announcements and news that were discovered through the developers' official Twitter accounts. I agree that discredible info often seeps through from Twitter from people who aren't even in the industry. This guy has played Uncharted 2. He works for Sony. He felt it was so good that it was the next Gears. And you don't make statements like those lightly - he obviously knew that, because he played Gears of War as well.

First you said he didn't say any such thing. Now you're throwing around some lofty ideals. I can't convince you to think otherwise. And it would be useless if you're going to just change gears (no pun intended) when things don't go your way. But whatever. Free speech and all.

GiantEnemyCrab3398d ago (Edited 3398d ago )

"Sony and Naughty Dog have higher standards than that broken disaster of an online game. "

Broken disaster? Act like a drama queen much? I've played Gears 2 and it is so far from a broken disaster please spare us the bullsh*t.

Why does every PS3 exclusive seem to have to kill a 360 game? Why does another game need to have a giant sh*t taken on it in order to prove that Uncharted is a good game?

It's like gaming through the mind of a 13 year old.

Gears 2 has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that it is AAA blockbuster worthy of the praise.

thebudgetgamer3398d ago

you cant like two games in the same genre. if you like halo you have to hate killzone. (what a bunch of dummies).


LCF3398d ago

Your fanboyism reached a new level. Calling Gears 2 a AAA title. Gears 2 is a broken game. How can you sit there and say that when the rank system that is in place today is different then what is in the disc? They use a level up system now. Gears 2 is a down grade from gears 1 in alot of people's opinion. The fast pace, basic game play was a hella fun in the 1st gears. Instead of improving the idea, they slowed the whole online game down.Use stun nades,shield glitching and the 2 piece is even screwed up. The 2 piece is a melee hit then shotgun blast that work well in the 1st gears. Though I dont use it, it made you rethink on how to attack up close. Myself and alot of other people that I know say the same thing, Gears of War 2 is a broken game. The match making is so half-ass too. Atleast in the 1st gears you knew right a way that you were in a laggy room and knew who the host is. Now you get a random host that will bail on the game and not even know it.

Anytime you have to make a major change like a ranking system that is such a big part of the online component. That disqualifies it as triple A. Patches are good to add more depth and fix bugs. But a whole type of ranking system?

I dont care if Gears 3 is multiplat or not. If it plays like Gears 2. I will not be getting it.

DaTruth3398d ago (Edited 3398d ago )

The reason people are calling Gears 2 a broken game, is likely because 360 fangirls went on and on about socom and any other PS3 exclusive that required even one update going back to Warhawk. It's to be expected that when Gears 2 online has problems, this would happen.

This $h1t just feeds itself!

In what way?

badz1493398d ago (Edited 3398d ago )

the title doesn't even starting to make sense no matter how many time I tried to comprehend it in my head! Uncharted 2 is still in the beta and Gears 3 is not even announced yet! both games still with unknown credibility, yet already been compared?! what the hell is wrong with game journalism lately? jumping guns here and there...simply PATHETIC! I think that HHG guy possibly had gave birth to a new era of journalism which makes everybody writes an article with titles that end with a "?"! lately, even IGN is being infected!

ok, I know that maybe Uncharted 2's MP will be great and we know that Gears 2's online was/is a mess (I don't know because I don't have one), but Uncharted 2 = Gears 3?? that is just wrong in so many ways!!

slave2Dcontroller3398d ago (Edited 3398d ago )

So it beigins. A Flamebait article pitting a game that is sure to surface but hasnt been announced against U2 which will be out this year.

At any rate, I'm keeping my hands clean on this one. These are 2 of my favorite franchises and they both equal win.

edit- Oh look, The invisible disagree b!*ch has paid me a visit. XD

360isthebestps3sucks3398d ago

rip-off gears 2.. too bad ps3tards.

BXbomber3398d ago

according to ur fanboy username, if anything uncharted 2 online will put to shame queers 2 and probably 3. u damn xbot.

Gue13398d ago (Edited 3398d ago )

In what way is Uncharted a rip-off from GeoW? Since when you can climb walls and shoot from edges in GeoW? What about the hand to hand combat? Or stealth element? GeoW doesn't even have any kind of platforming elements.

LOL So owned. =)

If you consider Uncharted a rip-off of GeoW then GeoW is a rip-off of Kill.Switch.

Owned again...

So easy. =D

GiantEnemyCrab3398d ago

When I saw Nathan pick up a shield and then when I saw him grab a guy and use him as cover I couldn't help but laugh at the blatant similarities to Gears of War 2. Except they won't give credit where it's due. Epic has always gave credit to KillSwitch and Winback for the original cover system ideas. These guys will just rip it off and then pretend they invented it and then take a sh*t on the game they borrowed the idea from.

So I guess in a way I agree.

talltony3398d ago

looking quite good. Cant wait for the beta next week.

WildArmed3398d ago

u couldn't take a person as cover in MGS WAAAY b4 Gears came in.

Don't live in the fanboy world. Get out and have some fun.
There is more to live than worshiping a console.

Gears is a great game so is Uncharted.
I dont see anyone ripping off of anyone.
Only fanboys see it.

You shoot in this game.. so it must be a copy of game X in which u can shoot too!
