Dualshock Nexus: At PAX East 2011 there were a limited amount of DLC codes distributed for an exclusive character skin in Uncharted 3. Take a look at the listing and the price asked for this DLC below.
redeem it now because the game isn't out yet. I have a InFamous 2 code for a power sitting around.
I really wish ND would tell us what this DLC was for and if it was hard to get in the game. They gave out Navarro codes for Uncharted 2 but he eventually came out as a DLC character a few months after the game released. $100+ bucks for an unknown...? Doesn't seem worth it.
I'm sorry, but did you even read? "At PAX East 2011 there were a limited amount of DLC codes distributed for an exclusive CHARACTER SKIN in Uncharted 3."
Reading is overrated TMoss, people nowadays would rather just jump to conclusions.
@above I read it, did you? I mean unless I missed what skin it was of, do you know?
Haha when I skimmed through the article I thought I read that the character skin was of Benjamin Franklin. But that was basically the price. Silly me :p
tmoss, that still doesn't make the DLC character a "known". "$100+ bucks for an unknown...? Doesn't seem worth it." That is the correct opinion here. Don't know what character. Don't know the public availability once the game launches. Don't know anything. Not worth it.
I have two of these. One my wife grabbed and one I have. ....
Who is the exclusive character?
It literally says mystery Skin on the card. I have one for a mystery skin character and mystery skin for a weapon.
there is no price on something that someone wants. it isnt over priced because we are not forced to buy it. if someone has something as exclusive as this then they deserve the price. not many people make it to PAX and would love to own something like this. i own stuff from games conventions that i wouldnt sell at all. i.e a photo of me and mike tyson in the EA booth.
Why would anyone buy a photo of you and Mike Tyson?
If it was a REALLY good picture, maybe Mike Tyson?
Crap, I'm trying to think of a good Drake or Sulley quote for this. I'll be back when I do!
Perhaps this is as crazy as "You took a hooker to church?"
Drake: "You couldn't find you ass with both hands." Sully: "and a map." Two for one. YAY!
Everything I touch turns to shit. (including the PSN...lol i kid :)
u think this is crazy u should see gt5 dlc on ebay they r even selling standard cars
Wouldn't you just buy the limited/collectors or if they do retail fortune hunters edition because they will obviously have DLC codes in it.
Yep! I hope they have an awesome collector's edition for Uncharted 3.
They better....remember U2, Golden Guns ¬¬ Then they had the amazing fortune hunters edition which you could only win and the funny thing about that people would of bought that thing straight away if it was retail. Halo Reach got limited and legendary edition Gears of War 3 are getting limited and Epic edition I think Uncharted should have limited and "Fortune hunter" edition My dream fortune hunters edition would be, Drakes diary, Spanish Gold coin from Drakes fortune, Sir francis drakes diary, Drakes ring, DLC codes for sinks/unlocks and what ever else maybe a statue of Drake and Elena while fiering their pistols or something U3 related.
@Robsonmonkey All of that is great collector's edition content, but one thing that will make it complete is a wearable replica of Sully's mustache. :)
Hell yea Treezy504 that would complete the package perfectly.
DLC before the game is out! That's bullshit, if it was free instead of a price then it is acceptable.
It WAS free - if you were at PAX East 2011... I have one... Consider it a token of appreciation from ND and all the other developers to those of us who come out and see their games and visit with their panels of speakers. For those of you who can't make it (travel, work, school etc) you have... well - eBay. I bet I spent more on hotel and food costs than it would take you to acquire a couple limited edition DLC codes and swag.
That's true about travelling and eating. I see, probably the dlc will end up on the store then.
$100 for that? Get out of here with that shit.
I saw the UC2 limited edition selling doe 600$ on ebay last year, its amazing how much ps3 fanboys think their exclusives are worth.
That's ridiculous! I'd much rather buy loads of copies of Uncharted 2 than 1 limited edition! :P
Whatever that DLC is, I hope that it sees an evetual PSN release. I truly hate it when these special "things" are exclusive to some event or location or what not. Especially if its something most of us, if not everyone, would like to have. It should be fair for all us. And I honestly hope that the limited edition of UC3 is acquirable bit more easily this time around.
Don't get me wrong i think this is extremely overpriced and i think anyone who buys it is nuts, but i do think the idea of rare event content is cool, it makes going to these events even cooler knowing you got something not many others do
DLC eight months before release... wow.
I didn't see this at PAX East. I guess it was at the trailer creation, which I didn't go to :(
Some people were buying Mortal Kombat 9 Klassic costumes for Reptile/Ermac/Sub-Zero at $100 eahc. :-\
Game gave them away free with a pre-order.
Yea then those people who got them free with pre-orders were putting them up on eBay for £70.
First of all those were bids not selling prices, he even said it. Second, Those were from PAX so people were placing ridiculous bids. Third why did he post a bid that ended in MARCH!? Lol smh
People are crazy.
exlusive dlc it just the failure project
Ya...I'll just wait for the GOTY edition to get that DLC...When a company says "exclusive" it usually isn't lol...It means you need to wait a while.
Exactly. Then you get the whole package (yeah the one you should have gotten in the first place) for $39.99 Silly kids.
Their people who pay alots of money for someones XBL account, how is this a shock? Anyways cool, for a min I was thinking this was Uncharted 3 the game case.
There are 2 reasons to buy someones XBL account - downloaded games (the good reason) and Gamerscore/Achievements (the worst reason ever) If you purchase someones account, you get all the downloaded games (Arcade, Indie and Retail) that they purchased. If the games are numerous and good enough, it could be justified to purchase the account. My roommate in college sold his account a few years ago - he sold it for $80. He had over 40 arcade games. It's almost the only way to "resell" your arcade games.
Yeah but I was saying that because the guy that wrote this acted like was shock people would pay that much for DLC. It isn't a shock, in fact I would pay alot for like that to.... Just got to have the money :(
not buying the game anyway but seems ND knows how stupid and addicted gamers are today. its astounding that this even crosses the devs/pubs minds and that gamers accept this BULLSH*T. lol dlc months before release. obvious they can put it on the disc, but even then it would probably be locked content requiring a 'small fee'. anyone who supports this is either a sony fanboy, uc fanboy or a fukn idiot
How can you blame Naughty Dog? They did not sell it, they gave it to this guy at PAX and he is trying to get $100+ for something he got FREE for attending PAX. It is damn immoral to ask for, but he/she knows someone will buy it anyway.
didnt read the article so that was my mistake. i still dont want uc3 though
Well, you and every other Xbox 360 owner "don't want Uncharted 3". And i don't want a Rolls-Royce, they are such crap cars. Whatever. I shall soil myself the day Uncharted 3 comes out, with utter anticipation of gaming awesomeness!
Oh, so people aren't allowed to not like a game that you are willing to soil your pants over? Gotcha - thanks for that clarification champ. I don't really like SOCOM4 - did you mess your britches last week? Because if so, I'll be sure to run out and grab it right away. Screw game reviews, lets just monitor drosera1's shit stains - we'll have to figure out a rating scale.
I'll pay one million dollars for a skin dlc!!!!
When it comes to a Sony game the last thing on my mind right now is DLC. Anyone who pays more that 50cents for a character skin...meh, its pointless. We are talking about fanboy after all.
@ saftara. Yeah, you say that like Sony is the only one. You can always tell when someone is attempting to troll. Why didn't you say Sony, Capcom, EA and Microsoft support things like that that ruin the industry? I really think it's funny when people don't want to pay 5 dollars for some KZ3 maps but will pay through the nose for some realistic war shooter maps that cost more without a single complaint.On topic. I don't see the point in trying to obtain these now when the game is coming out in the fall. Why buy it for a high price when you probably will get them for cheaper on PSN later
I has golden guns! Want something else now XD
Uncharted 3? The game isnt even out till Setptember so this article is full of fail. Anyways you want to complain about overpriced DLC just look at this. http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Ob... Now the horse armor was crazy when it came out. But oh well if people buy it then devs will continue selling DLC like that.
How is this "full of fail"? DLC codes were handed out at PAX East 2011... Also - the Horse Armor isn't the worst DLC because it actually changes characteristics of the game (adds health to your horse). The worst DLC are the ones that don't do anything. Take Madden for example - buying "classic jerseys" for $3 EACH? That's the worst DLC ever.
I think it's EA's 'unlock everything' DLC which is the worst. It's like a tax to play levels you ALREADY paid for! If genuine progression through the game is THAT unimportant, just stick an unlock all option in the options menu!
bidding can take things out of hand, but ~$100 ain't bad compare to people bidding +100K above for a peace of gum/tobacco spit out by some famous baseball player is beyond my comprehension. Surely when having too much money can cloud one's judgement.
I would pay $200-$250 for the actual Uncharted 3 game if someone had it before release but it'd have to be at least a month before the release date. This game will be so great you almost can't put a price on it at all.
As much as I'm sure you're right, I can't agree or disagree with you until I play the game. Uncharted 2 took over from Uncharted as my favourite PS3 game, so my expectations are sky-high, but I'm trying my best to lower them. If only for the euphoric rush I get when I eventually play it and realise that Naughty Dog managed to shatter my expectations. Again. Because the alternative is me getting carried away, and expecting the PS4 on that disc. Or, going by how I felt about Uncharted 2, PS6. :P
I can live without a character skin. I can't live without the game though. Hurry up :D!
