ohhh nice! Time for me to try again and see if this fixes the freeze I was having.
you fail... only problem this game has it takes years to "find players" hey just like GOW2, who would have thunked it
FREEZE!? WHAT FREEZE!?
freeze? ok.. u tried the wrong thing bro. Its called Uncharted 2 beta xD oh and the matchmaking doesnt take long. If it takes more than 15secs, just hit O n then Find game again. It should find u a game within seconds.
lol your so full of sh1t GEC there are no freezes
but that isnt a issue its my ps3 restarting everytime i quit it
the only problem i have is when i quit the game and it restarts the ps3
the reason it cant find players is that there are only like 1900 people online. of course its going to take awhile when there arent that many people playing. this game makes me think that this is what gears of war was supposed to be online, until everyone turned into shotgun whores.
and you defiantly don't have the beta. Stop making up rumors bot.
Crab has a ps3 and he has the beta. In fact he had an extra code he gave away.
Loving the beta but I'm curious as to why my PS3 keeps restarting after I quit the demo...x.x
i've been in most of the beta's, and they all reset my PS3 when it was quitin time.
Ok sweet, I thought there was actually something wrong with my PS3 but glad to know I'm not the only one this is happening to. When I turn off the PS3 straight from the demo it takes forever then does the little beep beep beep thing.
Yeah Blaze...it scared me for a second there. o.o
It appears to be truncated code, if I'm not mistaken; so it's like running down a road and suddenly the road disappears and there's nothing but rough rocks, so you trip and fall. Did I kill any of you yet?
Yep, it's happened to me in every beta I've been in as well. Except the Call of Duty 5 beta that is.. but that beta sucked..
But I think the multiplayer beta is uninteresting and very mediocre. It has no feeling to it for me and the gunplay is very ho hum and cookie cutter. The only thing that's good (to me) is the scaling you can do for just about every building in the level. But I think Uncharted 2 should have stayed single player only with just some coop. I have to try out the coop but I'll get to it this weekend. Hopefully it can redeem the beta. Uncharted just isn't one of those "multiplayer" games and is a fantastic single player experience only. This is coming from a HUGE Uncharted lover. Uncharted: Drakes fortune is my favorite game of this gen. Bar none.
I wish there was ranking boards for the beta lol. I've gone 36 kills and 5 deaths in 1 game. 20 kills and 1 death in another. Keep your eyes out for OutlawOcelot. He hurts people! ;D
Dark, I have to agree with you there on half of your comment. I think the multiplayer is nice, if not great. But I also think this game should have stayed SP and co-op that it has now. This is coming from a guy who doesn't prefere MP over SP though, so I'm part of the minority this generation of consoles.
I just finished playing some Coop with a associate of mines and it's pretty fun. Graphics are amazing. I wish there was more exploration though for the entire group in the set pieces, and the treasures would stand out from ammo a bit more. Hopefully in the full game the coop mode will have a good amount of coop puzzle solving. I really liked the coop quite a bit. It could use a few more dimensions to it but it IS just a small snippet of what's to come. Can't wait to play it with my girlfriend assuming there's offline coop as well. And if there isn't I'll play with a few online buds. @Colombiano: That's how I feel as well. I prefer single player only games to multiplayer or games with single and multiplayer. But I can't help but feel like the competitive multiplayer is generic. I'm sure the single player will be fantastic and after playing the coop I'm sure the coop will be quite excellent as well. But the multiplayer? It'll be a pass in my book. The Single player and Coop though? Gimme gimme. I think Elena will make a surprise appearance judging by the fact she has a skin for the beta. I liked Elena alot in the original Uncharted. Interesting note I'm the only person who I know that's played the beta and doesn't like it (the multiplayer portion).
Simple, if you are in the beta, choose a video to watch, then you go out the video ;) This is a little help for now, we must still wait for Naughty Dog to fix the problem!
@ Dark What's wrong with MP? It's still a great single player game but now it has MP. I really don't see this as a negative.
Mine out right shuts down EVERY time i've "Quit Game" on the beta LOL It was great that they extended the play time by making it 50 kills over 25 and 5 loots over 3. It really made things more fun One thing they should do is change the default screen brightness, When i was first playing every time i went to a dark area i couldnt see and would blindly get killed in those areas but then someone reminded me of the brightness controls in the options menu and i just cranked it to the limit and now the ENTIRE GAME looks worlds better and i thought it looked good before... The maximum level should be the default with the option to go brighter than that. Another thing id want is 1 hit headshot kills. I don't know if it's just this way for the beta but even with a sniper-like weapon it takes at least two hits to kill someone that's at full health.
What's wrong with the multiplayer for Uncharted 2 (well judging by the beta that is) for me is that it's uninteresting. I was expecting something more unique and original but it's just regular and plain just set in Uncharted maps. It doesn't have any "feeling" to it for me. And that makes it mediocre. After playing it I would have rather them put more resources in the single player/coop and just had left the competitive multiplayer out. But that's just me.
FWIW General Naughty Dog have already come out and said that they have expanded their team to work on the MP aspect of the game, so NONE of the SP will be compromised. This will still be the same Uncharted you,(And everybody) loved in Drake's Fortune. I am yet to play the competitive modes as I am too hooked on the co-op at the moment, just wish it could go longer. I am a big lover of CTF though so can't wait to get into that and the throwable 'flag' is just an awesome innovation that will no doubt offer up tons of different ways to win a match.
Too many random ass-wipes having a time of their life by pissing off other people.
I believe you can change those options in custom games. I may be wrong. (u cant create custom games in the beta fyi)
I still have a demo code that I'm not using.
if u dont need it give me the code
it always hurts reading that site
i wish i have the beta, i feel lonely now
send me a msg my PSN : arakouftaian ... some day i will help you back :)
Just buy inFamous if you want to be in the beta it's a great game! ~Peace
I got my game last sat. and a beta was in the game case so...
and I got a code for the beta... The beta is alright, I feel like it needs more work. Maybe it's just me, but the game feels slow. The characters don't move as fast as I think they should, based on Drake's Fortune. And I swear to god I'm the only one who has this problem: I shoot a guy with half the bullets in my clip and he survives (even head-shots!), but anyone else shoots me like twice or three times, and I'm dead immediately. Why do I have to use twice as many bullets to get the job done? It's like a curse or something... Sorry for the rant, I'm drunk.
Body shots are more effective plus you have to have you aim steady or some bullets register as a miss. Also, the gun you start with, the AK, is completely useless. The FIRST thing you do when you start playing is find one of the better guns.
It didn't only come with preorders, there were plenty of the retail copies that had the codes... How do I know? Mine was retail and it came with a code.
But the workers said it was from an over sale of pre-orders. Hence my saying... Only came with pre-orders...
LOL!! Silly droids if you think the only problem in this demo is taking a min. to get into a match and restarting your PS3 then you're just setting the final version up for failure. Go to Playstation.com and look it up. There are way more problems with the beta than this. I happen to like the beta just wish that there were more maps. The point of a beta is to find that problems and report them so they can be fixed, not be a fanboy and say nothing is wrong.
So, is it a demo or a closed beta? Seems like you're confusing your own self.
i love chucking the propane tank and then BOOM!
good good. i've been busy the last few days and so with the matchmaking problems as well i didn't get to play much. what i did play was pretty good so hoping to get stuck into this beta now
Anyone with an extra beta code? PLLEASE!? My email is [email protected] and my PSN is urdead18. I've been looking for one for over a week now, would be GREATLY APPRECIATED! P.S - Most annoying thing happened to me 5 minutes ago. I got an email from Playstation and the title was "Brian, here's your..." so I click it and it's "Brian, here's your Playstation Store update." UGH! I thought it was my beta code :(
everyone send fake beta codes to the people asking with their email addresses. Please. Would make my day lol. RSS
I can't really understand from the poor translation, is the match making fixed or are they still working on it?
Still working on it, basically its saying: They have already released one update, which has increased the kill count required in MP games, and also the score required for the plunder ones. They are fully aware of the PS3 quit after each game issue, and matchmaking issues and are working on it to get the next update out basically, doing exactly what the BETA is here to do
So, as an uncharted lover I am loving this great addition to the game. I have to disagree with the people who have said it's just mediocre... the MP graphics are better than alot of single player games out there, I love the fact there is only a small number of people, it doesn't turn into a massive grenade rumble, I have had some great games, where I have been going up against 1 person, each of weaving in and out of areas, hiding, rolling, climbing until one of us gets the kill, great fun. The maps are great, loads of variety, loads of weapons and ways of approaching each game. Co-op I feel the same, awsome on all accounts What makes me confident in this, is that this is just the BETA, it has 2 MP maps and 1 CO-OP challenge and I just can't get enough, so I am very much looking forward to seeing the maps and co-op challenges in the full game Does anybody know where we leave feedback for the BETA? if we find glitches or anything?
I bought Infamous and got a code and then checked my home email and got a code for being a GAP member. I think the MP beta is pretty cool but I don't see myself spending much time with MP (maybe co-op) once the full game is released.
anyone want a code? I don't need it.
any of you guys noticed the multiplayer beta has cross game invite
i didnt notice that. But the ps3 restarting is still there and its quite annoying. The matchmaking is faster though
yup! I really wanna play with my friend but his code isn't working for some reason, which is bullsh!t because he got it with the pre-order.
They finally made it harder, too :-) I like how everything adjusts based on how good you are, too. Like the last part, when I was low level and playing with low level people, the enemies don't have riot shields, but as I got better they come out with riot shields and the AI improves. Nothing ground breaking, I know, but it's nice that the game can feel out your skill so well because I've always felt perfectly matched. Though it pisses me off when I'm stuck with someone who tries to hog all the kills, then they [email protected] up and you have to run into a hailfire of bullets to try to revive them in time. There's no point in being a point hog, you'll get to that higher level eventually, just play the game with your allies and be smart about it because it's MUCH more fun that way. EDIT: talking about the co-op, obviously, I only touched the competitive once when I couldn't find the co-op stuff at first. Not big on competitive.
that the SP experience is top notch, with no loss of focus. I hate games that have a great MP with a sloppy SP tag to it. Uncharted 2 seems to get it right.
