Naughty Dog’s Arne Meyer compares Uncharted 2: Among Thieves sales to other Playstation 3 games and answers some fan questions regarding the Game of the Year edition.
Uncharted 2 was a great game.
Still is, I should play it over again.
I've beaten both 1 and 2 at least 4 times. I can't say that about many games in my lifetime dating back to Atari.
I've played Uncharted 2 about 4-6 times in the SP alone.. But honestly, I played Uncharted 1 about 20 times :) I really liked Uncharted 1 ALOT.. Heck, I still played Uncharted 1 alot >.< (I just loved the plot and gameplay! It's really action packed.. the pacing is just non-stop action xD !) The pacing is better in uncharted 2 for a story driven game though. When I play Uncharted 1 I just run through the game bcoz the gameplay is just soo fun.
@skv007 you are soo right!!! i loved the gameplay in uncharted 1, i played it alot of times thats how fun it was, thats the first time ive done that since dmc3
I just restarted this the other day, Crushing difficulty seems to be way harder than I remember :(
I like how you could purchase all of the bonuses and weapons after completing a game, and use it on a second play through. Fast movement and an arsenal of weapons like Dragon Sniper, M32 Hammer, and RPG equiped at will makes the second play through so satisfyingly fun. I know this idea isn't new, but all games should adopt this idea when a game is completed.
I'm going have to replay it eventually, I'm one trophy away from achieving that platinum :S
I have platinum for both. :P
is not COD but its still profitable and they are happy with it. thats almost 4 mill which they will crack after the GOTY edition so that pretty good i think
those are great numbers, not everything sells upwards of ten million,
He's no saying your exclusives are bad, he's just saying you're not getting very many new releases. So after such a long period of nothing to play, when one actually does get released the masses are going to swarm all over it.
But when you compare the quantity of great exclusives there's no comparison really is there? Over 50% of x360 best exclusive games were released way over 2 years ago. It has been very quiet. Can you deny it?
so you tell someone off for mentioning one console and slagging another but yet you do it yourself? that shiz is funny, and all those games you just mentioned are tripple aaa games that have done well on the playstation, not all games can sell halo numbers or gt numbers or cod numbers, stop acting so butthurt.
@jambabie69 I have a word for you, a word you should go off and learn and then come back and realise how much of an idiot you've just made yourself look. That word is: o·pin·ion [uh-pin-yuhn] –noun 1. a belief or judgment that rests on grounds insufficient to produce complete certainty. 2. a personal view, attitude, or appraisal. 3. the formal expression of a professional judgment: to ask for a second Medical opinion. Also; Shooters are not the only genre of game out there. Try playing something else once in a while, you'll be surprised at what you find.
Well said, Well said
Have you ever played Killzone 2? Its a great game, definitely one the most satisfying shootera on the market. And i think your forgetting that the PS3 has Bioshock 1 & 2, Call of Duties, Bad Company 2 and every other great Multi Platform Shooter (including the supped up PS3 version of MOH thats coming). I think your also forgetting and/or ignoring the fact that the PS3 beats the Xbox in pretty much every other Genre. 3rd Person shooter - Uncharted 2 Driving Sim - Gran Turismo 5 Platformer - Little Big Planet/Ratchet and Clanks. Action/Adventure - God of War 3/Heavy Rain/Metal Gear Solid 4. RPG - Demon Souls/FF13 ........... Then what about all the multi platfrom games like GTA's,RDR,AC2,Fifas,Batman AA,Dead Space............ Oh and then all the other exclusives like Infamous,Resistance 2...... Resistance 3 looks absolutely epic, Insomniac seems to have really stepped up to the plate for it. Enjoy trying to stretch out Halo Reach till Gears of War 3 comes out. In the meantime i have GT5,LBP2 and Killzone 3 to look forward to. Crawl back back to your cave troll.
Still playing finishing the HARD mode.
Love UC2, A friend let me download the DLC but it got deleted off my ps3, and I never got to 100% the DLC. So I'll trade in my original copy for GOTY copy to get all the DLC. Sweet Sony, good move for a very good game.
The DLC is not included on the GOTY edition of Uncharted 2. "…the version of Uncharted 2 on the disc is the same as the original retail version — none of the DLC or Title Updates are included on the disc — as I’d mentioned before, we looked into including this type of stuff on the disc and it wasn’t possible to pull off."
The DLC is not on the DISC. It is included in the case in the form of a redeemable super voucher code. You're still good FACTUAL evidence. http://www.hookedgamers.com...
ah... that wasn't clear from the article at all. In fact it suggested otherwise. Good catch and thanks for the correction!
"Uncharted 2 was a great game." Yep... it's one of the best games this generation.
How do you taste?
I've played Gears 1, Gears 2, Uncharted 1, Uncharted 2. They are all great games. I'm going to play Gears 3 and Uncharted 3. As for the best... i'll leave that to the fanboys.
@ lelo2play I there with you. Gears 1, Gears 2, Uncharted 1 and Uncharted 2 have provided me many hours of fun and I'm looking forward to the future installments.
if they fix the online.
Uncharted 2 It the most critically acclaimed of the bunch, it has multiplayer, co-op and I can't take of a game that is more easy to market - yet it failed to make an impact and dropped of the NPD for good after one month of sales which weren't extremely good anyway Why do titles like Gears of War (for some reason the eastiest title to compare to Uncharted) do so much better? titles like Uncharted 2 which had a huge amount of hype and belongs to the most popular genre on consoles today failed to sell the millions...
Why compare to Gears of War? The game is good, regardless of sales. Besides, Gears of War appeals a lot more to the younger crowd than Uncharted 2 does. Most young kids only want games that are considered "cool" like Gears of War, Grand Theft Auto, RDR, etc.
Uncharted 2 is just shy of 4 million copies.. How exactly is that bad?
Cuhz people who only have a 360 buys Halo, Fable, Forza, and Gears of War, everything else is multi-platform. Some PS3 users can't buy all the multi-plats and exclusives that Sony has to offer. So by my reasoning Gears sells more since 360 owners don't have much other exclusives to buy. Sorry this is only my opinion, but I have a 360 and PS3, and I haven't bought a game for it in ages(Besides Halo Reach).
IneedWeed: You haven't bought a game for it in ages yet you just bought Reach which came out in the last few weeks. You need less weed. :) 360 owners don't have much other exclusives to buy? Count'em up kid and I think you might be surprised by who has more exclusives. Granted, Sony's exclusives have scored higher but more??
Yes way more.. since more than two years, and better ones too. older games does'nt count, almost anybody play them. "Uncharted 2 single player was ok, nothing that blew me away though" [email protected] you 've never played it.
It's not bad by any means. But for such a great game, it deserves to have sold a lot more.
LOL UC2 will hit 5million by the end of the gen...heck it still sells around 20k a week
Why do titles like Gears of War (for some reason the eastiest title to compare to Uncharted) do so much better! Well I'll tell you why both my sons are 360 fans and with their friends mostly play Halo3,Reach and COD5 mostly, sometimes BFBC2 and MW2 the odd time or dabble in something else (shortlived)When PS3 owners have a wider choice in games and tend to buy not just one title thats AAA. What games will my boys and their friends be still playing next year, let me guess Halo3, Reach Gow3 and Black ops anything else dout it.
the first one was a better game in terms of story but among thieves had great pacing and the best graphics to date.
I've got to actually buy it and stop borrowing it! Good thing that the Game of the Year Edition with all the goodies like DLC and some other cool stuff will be included for $50. A must buy
ive said it b4 and ill say it again. sales dont mean quality. if that was the case then avatar would be the best movie of all time, wii sports would be the best game of all time and justin bieber would be better than most singers now. Uncharted 2 is an example of a game that is critically successful. I wanna send this message to the xbots. xbots say than halo 3 has more sales than uncharted 1 and 2 and killzone 2 combined. well uncharted 2 has won more game of the year awards then all yes all 360 exclusives combined. that my friend is quality. quality in terms of graphics, in terms of gameplay, in terms of story, in terms of audio it was a memorable game from start to finish
Why did you include Justin Bieber in your comment. I nearly VERY NEARLY pushed the disagree button but of course, I didn't. :)
Gotta call bullshit on this one my friend, mass effect 1, gears of war 1 and halo 3. No way uncharted has more awards than all 360's exclusives combined lol. Mass effect 1 alone owns it. Splinter cell conviction prob does too. Anyways dumb statement not really worthy of a reply so I will stealth bomb sony. How demeaning is it to have only sold nearly what reach did in 1 day? By xmas reach will have outsold god of war 3 and uncharted 2 combined. If I'm a developer the choice is clear, uncharted would of did 5 million in year one on the 360, not to mention uncharted 2 is bundled in with the ps3 at a lot of places. Selling great on the ps3 is like bombing on the 360, its only going to get worst with the sales spike xbox is having. Easier to developer for, more likely to succeed and microsoft will even pump out tons of commercials for you. I'm going to develop for 360 everytime and maybe pull a EA and port over my games lol.
Yeah man why you gotta bring up gears, uncharted is lame blah blah blah, imma go play alan wake. Continue the cycle of stupidity >.< This post was suppose to be lower after gamers comment lol...
your full of it, uncharted 2 has won more award than all those games you just rymed off, its a fact go look it up, as for mentioning splinter cell ha ha ha, i played that game and its nothing more than a failed cash in of the name, its not a proper splinter cell by any means, and also mass effect might have won some awards but not even a quarter of what uncharted 2 did, you funny, but stupid.
i disagreed, cuz it was an AMAZING game.
I'm totally ADHD with my games, always starting another one without finishing the one before. Heck I haven't beaten Castlevania III and I've had that since 1991. Have it on Virtual Console now too. Still haven't beat it! Anyway, I just beat Uncharted 2, and loved the game to death. Can't wait until Uncharted 3(assuming it's coming...)!
Just because this was a great time for them to go out of there way to make it a really nice value.. -By one putting all the download content on the one disc.. -and by adding something special like some exclusive skins and guns for people who buy the greatest hits package, that would not have been to hard to do.. It's just sad that such a great company like Naughty Dog didn't think this one through.. I hate when game companies just do what everyone else is doing -your a great company your suppose to exceed what the others do, not offer the same lame Greatest Hits that everyone else has done before. To me Uncharted 2 was an epic Game, and their Greatest hits should have been something awesome, Something so cool that it would make fans of the game who already have the original want to go out and grab the Greatest hits edition. -and all it would have took is a few skins, a few exclusive guns (3 more) 4 maps new trophies and an alternate ending that shows what happens to Chloe and Sully after he catches up with her and they leave the island... Leading right into Uncharted 3.. (that would have been Awesome) Then offer the maps for sale for people without Greatest edition, but never offer those exclusive skins and guns... and that would have made it a must buy (and make it an Awesome buy) Sometimes you just have to give back to the fans- :) it will pay off big time in the long run when your fan base returns to buy Uncharted 3. -I would have loved to see them do some great value like that. That would have been Awesome. ____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
but the online the guns are just to inaccurate. the bullets fly way to much for me. I am told that they actually changed this via patch so I hope they change it back. Single player played through twice love it.
Is seriously one of the best games ever made, fukin period. Naughty Dog I salute u
And you have to bring up Halo Reach why? Uncharted 2 single player was ok, nothing that blew me away though. Uncharted 2 multi-player sucks ass. Even when the game was new, their wasn't very many people playing it. Don't really see whats so great about this game. I would rather play gears of war any day.
Your response is why he brought it up, simply an attempt to illicit a response so everyone else can pounce on you.
lmfao. This would totally be in my top 10 hilarious/ironic/stupid posts i've read on N4G if i had a list. XD
I am not sure what was hilarious, ironic, or stupid about my post, but I suppose your welcome to your opinion friend.
He wasnt referring to your post, he was talking about Gamers post.
i was about to say hahahahahahahahahahaahhaahahaa hahahahHAHAHAHAAHAAHAHAHAHAHAH A HAHAHAH but then i realized that wasnt enough so hahahahahahahhahahhahHAHAHAHAH AHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHHAHA
I can see this game reaching 5 mil soon. Only 1.2 million more to go and I think this will push enough new players into getting it.
I doubt it. Games do the large majority of its sales in the first month, and then trail off significantly after that. It should reach 4 million though, which is an excellent achievement.
Not sony games. For some weird reason sony first party games have leeeeeggsss.. Maybe it has to do with new adopters asking the established user base what they should buy and the first party titles always rank high.. UC2 was a day 1 midnight buy for me.. Lol I beat the campaign in one setting and immediately started on a higher difficulty..
Sony has been a very greedy-NOT company and delivers real video games for us to play despite of their financial troubles in the past for the PS3. People bitching about games being crappy this generation are simply relying on the wrong devs and publishers to begin with. Sony makes me proud. Uncharted 2 is a CLASSIC, and will be a classic 20 years from now.
No, they do this for the love of gaming. And for the children, Sony loves the children. They do this for honour and pride. Sony do not want your money,far from it. They are happy making games and never reaching 5million sales. They are a charity organisation and ps3 players are all charity cases. All hail Sony. Now gimme bubbles and high fives
I guess that me and two other people (and counting) detected the sarcasm in your post. Of course the business corporation Sony is for staying in the black and having as many sells as possible. It also seems that they want to please their consumers and employees too by offering such a diverse and abundant amount of quality titles REGARDLESS of how many prior units were sold. As a result, The Last Guardian, Uncharted, Demon's Souls, and an abundance of other titles are available or will soon be. Sony could have shut down Guerilla Games, Naughty Dog, Santa Monica; scrapped Insomniac's and Sucker Punch's titles for not selling 10+ million on each of their past titles. Fortunately, that hasn't been the case. That doesn't hold true for some publishers. ;-)
but try to take a bubble away just cuz you asked for one this ain't no charity organization earn your Shi, "Mutha Uckers."
this comment is a classic.i wont forget it anytime soon.
Rip-Ridah: The Last Guardian isn't even out yet. Good job r-tard
You need to carefully continue reading that sentence and chill with the childish insults. I'm respectful to everyone on this site. In case you don't want to reread the post, I acknowledge that it is not released by saying, "...or will soon be." (Gotta love the internet.)
Uncharted 2 deserves to have 10m in sales. The game is that good.
