Every system has that one game that makes the console worth owning and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is that title for the PS3.
I have to agree with this article 100%. It's definitely worth buying a PS3 just to play Uncharted 2. The other game is Gran Turismo 5. They both may turn up being bad games but I highly doubt it. Oh yeah, and Killzone 2.
Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack In Time God of War 3 White Knight Chronicles 2 LittleBigPlanet etc... PS3 owners, you know the deal!
how MIGHT they both end up being bad games? apart from the usual low scores from gamedaily,gamespy and that joke tom orry (i urge people to compare his 360 and ps3 reviews) from videogamer how might u2 be a bad game? as for gran turismo being a bad game it'll never happen despite 360 fanboys having dolls of Kazunori Yamauchi with pins stuck in it
seriously? that's the best you could come up with?
Is the exact way I felt about Drake's Fortune. I've played Uncharted over 30 times now in the past 2 years and am so excited for the sequel. Uncharted is my facvourite all time game and if there's any game to knock it out of that spot it will be its own sequel.
LOL somebody is bitter. On topic. If people buy a PS3 it should be because of the broader range of exclusives. There is AAA exclusives for almost every genre. UC2 & UC1 - Action Adventure Rachet and Clank games - Platforming MGS4 - TPS Killzone 2 & Resistance 2 - FPS LittleBigPlanet - Creation/Online Community GT5 - Racing Simulation MotorStorm - Racing Demon Souls & VC - RPGS God of War 3 - Hack and Slash Heavy Rain - Undefined Genre??? Probably more. Just a quick list.
There is more than enough reasons to buy a PS3. Uncharted 2 is just another super insanely big reason. And for $299... come on folks... This isn't even a question anymore.
bratman, It's so sad that he posted this twice. On both sides of the comments on this story ( Gamer zone and Open zone ). His opinion is worth as much as his bubbles.
On a troll name name I called it "Unfarted Poo". Obviously I was just joking since it was a troll name, but that's way better than Who Farted 2: Among Cheese. At least Unfarted Poo actually kind of made sense since it refers to a wet fart that has yet to be released and Uncharted 2 hasn't come out and a 360 fanboy will think it's crap. I LOVE MY PS3 AND I'M GETTING UNCHARTED 2! That was just something I said on a troll account, I don't mean it. Troll accounts are for when you're bored and want to make a fool of yourself. You don't say your true opinion on a 1-day troll account. Xbox Avatar's Shoe is my real account where I'm honest. From the looks of it, Guitarded seems to be that guy's real profile and that's his real opinion -- sad.
i just bought a PS3 slim for $220 CAN after I traded in 4 games. I feel like I robbed the store to be honest. Anyways, I bought it specifically for this game. Can't wait for it to come out.
If you're a troll, then you're not a very good one. If you aren't, then you should get into rehab because whatever drug you are abusing is having some serious effects.
It's pretty darn good. I recommend it whole heartedly just off the strength of the single player. Can't wait till the servers go up so I can get some multi-player going. Edit: Some of you have "troll accounts"? Wow. I have one alt account and I only use it when my main is banned. But this is my main and the only account I use.
they told me "THE PS3 IS DOOMED!!!!"
FACT my ps3 broke and there's no way to fix it or reclaim warranty, and I went to buy another without thinking. It's that good
this makes me happy and made me remember why i preordered it will not have any social life this winter break because of uncharted 2 and modern warfare 2 :)
Are there any exclusive game on the burnbox that can equal Uncharted 2? No? Then there's absolutely no reason to own a burnbox. @below: You forgot MGS4. :)
Nope, nothing can match GT5, Killzone 2 or Uncharted 2.
The difference in graphics is like Xbox to Gamecube last gen. Not like Xbox to PS2(Those comparisons were a joke much like third party games between 360 and PS3) Too bad all those games put together don't equal the fun of just one 360 game. Who Farted 2:Among Cheese is not worth $300 for the PS3. Seems like all Sonys first party games are tech demos with lackluster gameplay. I guess that's what you get when you have to spend all your resources just trying to figure out how to use the stupid architecture that Sony put in the PoS3.
It's simple really.. Blu-ray > DVD at the end of the day.
Guitarded, Interesting, seeing that the Xbox console is a piece of junk that fails more than 50% of the time. Let's see it's manufacture just try and get it right for once. I mean it's been 4 years and it's the worlds biggest failure in the gaming history of consoles. That says a lot of just how smart the consumers are that still buy into that lemon huh? You have the out dated format that lost the war. You have no Wi-Fi standard at all. You can't even play online without paying. Do they still scratch the game discs? What about sounding like a helicopter? I have never gotten why someone would want to deal with a console that fails that much. What a headache that must be and it will never have the quality of a blu-ray movie or elite AAA game. Yet, you can guarantee that it will fail on you at some point.
Its nothing to do with having a game thats equal. Stop comparing consoles, Look at the Xbox 360 on its own and think what does it offer that no other console can... Xbox Live, the award winning online experience, PSN cant come close to offering the kind of premium online experience XBL Gold can. Amazing games like, Gears of War series, Left 4 Dead series, Fable II, GTA: Episodes From Liberty City. And those are just the AAA recent titles :)
"PSN cant come close to offering the kind of premium online experience XBL Gold can. " XBL = 5 on 5 + LAG ( gears ) PSN = 265 player + NO LAG AT ALL ( MAG ) lol stupid bot
lol I had a good laugh. I'd give you another bubble for that if I could. :)
As good as U2 is no one should fail their exams because of it. I am serious.
More like Uncharted 2: Lose your sleep
I know I'm failing because of this game. I asked myself: "Is wasting 13 years of schooling really worth playing the sequel to the greatest game of all time?", And have never answered no.
I know how you feel, I don't think I can buy it till next Friday or I'll fail the 3 tests and 2 projects I have next week >.>
Uncharted 2: Among Insomniacs :)
And People are buying. PS3 failed? Yea, sure...
You will never regret buying a ps3 trust me :)
Uncharted 2 and Demon's Souls is all you need this winter
but i'm also getting ratchet:aCiT plus jak and daxter: lost frontier for ps2. (it's picking up the story from where the last one ended and i want to keep up with whats going on. at some point i think ND is going to bring the series to ps3.)
Umm, I'd argue that you should also get MW2. I know, everyone hates activision. But you have a hardcore RPG, an awesome third person shooter, and a mainstream but still really good FPS.
Demon's Souls and Uncharted 2 for the Win !!
I have slept a total of 10 hours in the last 3 days because of Demon's Souls. Now Uncharted 2 on top of it? I can't take it... (but I will try)
i have ps3 from eu launch, but two days ago i finally bought a nice 26'' LG HDTV for U2 and so on:) by the way can someone explain why my HD Ready(720p, 1080i) only can display 1080p at 60hz!!!???, and i am not talking about true cinema 24p at 1080p, just XMB and games like GT5P and Wipeout HD that natively run at 1080p.
I definitely want to play this game but not enough to actually buy a ps3. Once I beat the campaign than I won't go back to it.
is that promise ?? It sounds like somebody is forcing you to play :D
Uncharted 1 and blu-ray were the reason I got my PS3 after owning a 360 since launch.
I take it you're not one to go for achievements or any other unlockables? I just can't see spending 60 dollars on a game that you're only going to beat once and never revisit; even if the game has good multiplayer.
I rarely ever go back to the campaign after beating it. Beating it one time and I'm usually good. Unless it has some sort of co-op like Halo 3 which I'll play the campaign numerous times with my buddies. I do like to try for achievements tho' so I'll go for that but I'm hooked on the 360 achievements and don't really want to venture into ps3 trophies. I'm a big multiplayer man so I'll buy a ps3 once I see something that has top notch multiplayer. Unfortunately Uncharted 2's multiplayer looks simple. My multiplayer skills are going to be busy with Forza 3 and MW2 at the moment. MAG looks interesting, hopefully they polish it up some more. I'm still praying for a next gen Twisted Metal. Online multiplayer Twisted Metal and I'm in heaven. BTW, the tap dancing Master Chief thing is actually kinda funny. Good one.
What wrong with the single player being simple? Simple doesn't mean bad =P and its not THAT simple...the platforming, melee and perks all add to the experience. Just because its simple doesn't mean it isn't going to be good. Counter Stike is one of the SIMPLEST MP games out there...and its the best too. A valid excuse would be, you just Don't Want To o buy one, i mean look at your comment history =P
Skills and MW2 dont fit in the same sentence or any other COD game
You'll never buy a PS3. Let's just leave it at that. I've already seen through your real colors trolling the Gran Turismo threads. Don't act like you're so interested in Uncharted 2.
Are you talking about the single player cuz I said the multiplayer looks simple. Looks to be a basic multiplayer shooter. Their are tons of better mutliplayer games out there that are better than Uncharted 2. And yes you are correct, MW2 doesn't take much skill but it's still a lot of fun to play. Most of my gaming will go to Forza 3 for the next few months with a splash of Left 4 Dead 2 and MW2. LMAO @ Sarcasm, okay detective Jones. :)
"LMAO @ Sarcasm, okay detective Jones. :) " That's the sort of reply I expected. It's Captain Jones to you.
why the hell are you guys even talking to this pathetic guy hes a 360 fanboy that always troll on PS3 articles and sometimes claims that he owns a PS3 pathetic
Plain and simple! He's not blatant like those in the open zone but he's a troll regardless. Think of him as Foxgod 1.5...just not as stealthy. Get it? Fox and Stealthy. Ahh forget it.
you think UC2 is a basic multiplayer shooter please name 1 other 3rd person shooter thats lets you climb all over the map and hang from ledges. also how is it simple when in competitive multiplayer you can get hit from every angle not only that there are boosters and leveling up. co-op also is more deep then any other co-op game the enemies have more variety and can go everywhere you do so unlike in gears you can't just camp in 1 spot because they can come from everywhere and on top of that you have an objective to complete. if you think that UC2 has simple multiplayer then halo, l4d and gears must be so easy and basic to you that it feels like they play themselves none of these have anything over UC2's multiplayer. halo you bunny hop in a circle till your enemies are dead gears you run at the enemy then roll and shot gun/chainsaw l4d hold the trigger button and just walk around and you think UC2 is simple lol.
Even the first Uncharted was enough reason to by a PS3 even though not many people knew about it because of all the FUD the PS3 had at that time. Its not just U2 but the other games that make up its library makes it worth getting. Things are now in full steam for the PS3 this year and is going to be better next year.
what IDIOT disagreed with you? your comment is "spot-on". have a bubble.
Thanks, i don't mind disagrees anymore its just that i do enjoy my PS3 more this year than last. The games coming out are phenomenal i don't think my wallet can hold out much longer and next year is gonna be a nightmare (in a good way that is).
By March PS3 will have the most diverse gaming library out!!! (just saying March to get some of the OTHER great exclusives out there...in all honesty it probably can more than hold it's own at this point) People are finally warming up to the idea that the PS3 is not some elitist snob of a console...it is the Playstation brand continued for this generation. I will be begging for money on the streets with a sign if I try to get all of the games that I WANT!!! Excited is not the WORD for the future that the PS3 has in store.
and i just gotta say: Believe the hype! :D
UNCHARTED 2 9.7 GALO RRODST 8.3 ENOUGH SAID..PLAY YOUR UMM SO CALLED GAME AND WE WILL PLAY REAL AAA GAMES THAT TOOK TIME AND EFFORT TO MAKE NOT JUST SPAT OUT OF SOME DONKEY'S A$$ JUST FOR A QUICK BUCK..DUMB BOTS LMAO
While I have fun playing REAL games that know what they are supposed to be. FUN! ENOUGH SAID! Stupid droids! LMAO
Guitarded, Thank god your done here, lol.. You my friend are either to dumb to own a PS3 or to poor. You clearly have no idea at all. Good luck on that %54 fail rate DVD, no wi-fi console of yours. Anything worth playing on it comes on the PS3 as well. Tracked by: 3 users Ignored by: 54 users ? Why am I not surprised, lol.... :P
Alot of Haters on this Game, I love How Retarded called this a tech demo.. yet 360 exclusives are pretty much the tech demo's that are later Ported to Superior Platforms (PC,ps3) with extra Content.
PS fans have been arguing about the definitive PS game but no one game can claim that title. Some say GT, some FF, some like me say MGS, some GTA, some GoW, some Socom etc etc. The point is there is no point is saying that one game in particular is worth buying a PS console. That is just stupid and the stupid thing is the media is still looking for that particular PS title. They never will. GT is the closest in terms of sales and brand but even GT will never sell to more than 30% or 40% of PS fans because they are that many and diverse. Even though GT5 will sell more than halo 3 and mario wii. It will not be that popular to the bulk of PS fans compare to Mario and Halo to wii and x360 fanbase respectively. Sony made a clear and very wise choice of not branding the PS console to one particular franchise. Thats why the PS never had a mascot. Sony realised when they entered the market that Nin was focusing way too much on young to teenage gamers. Sony's vision was to take gaming mainstream which means including games for mature adults and the general masses. Diversity was and is the key to the PS success. Thats why SCEI was broken up into 3 main regions to cater for specific regions gaming taste and needs. Do you guys ever wonder why Sony push each and every one of their games equally?. Weather its LBP, or KZ2 or Infamous or RC Sony gives equal attention to each of these games. You don't see that with MS with Banjo and Gears and Halo and Viva. To Sony. The PS game collection collectively is the reason to buy a PS console, not just one game in particular because Sony knows that if you do that you will limit your market. Thats why the PS1 and ps2 are the only consoles in history to reach the 100 million mark. It is marketed to appeal to every type of gamer from different background with different gaming taste with its diverse and quality game lineup. Not just hardcore shooters or extreme casuals. PS is the middle ground. It always has. No one can typecast the PS and its PS fanbase unlike the comp. Again the media has to stop this nonsense. Every time a big ps exclusive is about to release they ask weather it will be the PS equivalent of halo or mario which is stupid and belittle the excellent PS exclusive that have already been released. It gives the masses the idea that the PS3 game lineup is inferior when its actually superior. The truth is, if you ask Ps3 fans you will get very diverse answers to games that they bought a PS3 for. Some would be VC or DS or MGS4 like me etc etc.
Agreed. Every game I own but 1 is a PS3 exclusive, the only multiplatform game I have is GTA 4 (and probably soon to be Brutal Legend, mayyyyyybe Borderlands and/or Fallout 3 GOTY but I might get those for PC). Right now I am totally hooked on Demon's Souls, seriously the best game I've played this entire generation and it's a PS3 exclusive. I can guarantee I'll play this game more than Uncharted 2 and probably have more fun playing it as well since it's more my type of game. I'm gonna get Uncharted 2 as well but what they've done with Demon's Souls is something so unique I don't think anything can touch it in terms of atmosphere and feeling of accomplishment and addiction.
The First one is so good, but If someone needs to focus in one game to buy a PS3 I think is missing the point, PS3 have a wonderful line-up of games and is growing tremendously, 2010 says HELLO, but if in the past you couldn't afford the PS3 ($$$) Uncharted 2 + PS3 slim is the best chance, no regrets
killzone 2 bored me to death,little big planet had a certain charm but was misiing something for me personaly and uncharted left me cold,hopefully uncharted 2 will deliver but i downloaded the beta and thought it was boring...just my opinion but my PS3 has paid for itself by way of being a fatastic blu-ray player,just not that into the sony exclusives just yet,im sure GT5 will be amazing though!
yah im sure everything on the PS3 is boring why ?? well its on the PS3 maybe you wont see it boring if it was on the 360 and yah "just my opinion but my PS3 has paid for itself by way of being a fatastic blu-ray player" you are really bad at trolling
He prefers Macho run of the mill marines. If it doesn't have any of those like in Gears or Halo, it's bad.
Any game can seem boring to you when you have fanboy goggles on.
Or they're just garbage re-released games with some extra content thats full price. It's a shame people are so duped by this Halo game and the garbage hardware that's put out by M$. Seriously, I can't even imagine buying something so broken, expecting it to fail, then doing it all over again. Us as American's should be appalled by such junk and have better taste than that. The richest country in the world, and a company puts out crap like that, and yet people love it. Makes no sense. Just stating fact.
Anyone else think that there's clearly something wrong If you find yourself in a predicament where as there hasnt been a single game on the PS3, 3 years since release to make you want to buy it, but THIS game would? hmm...
It's for those that haven't bought it yet, dipsh1t.
