360 Magazine: Where Is Xbox 360′s Uncharted?

We all know that variety is the spice of life. But like a daft mum who’ll only feed her spoilt child beef burgers, chips and the occasional handful of smarties because ‘that’s all he says he wants’, Microsoft just doesn’t seem to grasp a key concept...

The problem is that MS sell 10m copies every Halo game. They're not going to give that up. Problem is 10m is only one fifth of Xbox owners. Halo caters to the minority. Me personally, I'd love to see more Uncharted-like experiences on Xbox.

In fact... ANY Uncharted-like experiences. And the article's right; Alan Wake doesn't count... it was awful.

The 360 doesn't need Uncharted.

Leio2626d ago (Edited 2626d ago )

They do but cant do

360 needs a new exclusive IP, any IP with high production values that's not a FPS

(clearly not Kinect crap)

undercovrr2626d ago

@ Active reload. Let me correct you, MS doesn't need Uncharted, but Xbox gamers do. Why? Because the poor people have no unique games anymore!

The problem is they dont have Naughty Dog?
Even if they would try to copy it, it would still be a bad copy. So the decision to not make a copy is the best.

jimmins2627d ago

I don't think MS need to copy; they just need to have a DIFFERENT franchise with similar aims and production values.

Narutone662626d ago

They should have thought of that when they started closing their first party developers left and right.

guigsy2627d ago (Edited 2627d ago )

I don't understand the point you are trying to make. Uncharted 2 sold 5m which is like a tenth of PS3 owners. Even games like Call of Duty and FIFA only cater to about a quarter of Xbox owners. What do you mean?

And besides, Tomb Raider is the 360s Uncharted. It's multiplatform but it's still a 360 game, and a fantastic-looking one at that.

DigitalRaptor2627d ago (Edited 2627d ago )

As much as I'm looking forward to it, I'm calling it now: the Tomb Raider reboot will be a disappointment. Just because they showed it at the 360 conference doesn't mean anything!

Active Reload2627d ago

"Uncharted 2 sold 5m "

I'm willing to bet that you have no proof whatsoever for such a statement, lol.

Narutone662626d ago

As of September last year, the game Uncharted 2 have already sold 3.8 million: http://blog.us.playstation....

brandonjwan2625d ago

Actually it really doesn't belong to 360 or ANY console, Tomb Raider was out in the PS1 days and earlier, before the Xbox series of systems. And yea like I i was saying it doesn't belong to Xbox 360, MS was just promoting it, it's a multi platform. Sony could've promoted it as well if they wanted but they chose a different route. Sony stuck with exclusives, seem as though MS stuck with multiplat games the whole drive, but yea that game doesn't belong to 360 and microsoft didn't necessarily helped create it. It belongs to PS3 360 AND PC, thing is Uncharted 3 is still better. It's popularity is at a high level and its an exclusive.. For Tomb Raider to be a multiplat, it doesn't seem to have much fame and nobody seems to care much about it. U3 will make GOTY if not, it'll be awarded some how. Great franchise Naughty Dog has.

jdfoster002626d ago

Yeah it needs something but like Naughty Dog says the 360 put's games like uncharted off the 360 because of the disk space and hardware... I'm sick and tired of a new Halo and Gears coming out every year and tbh they're not the best... (Halo is nearly as milked as cod!) Wana NEW ip from microsoft something that will blow me away like uncharted or the scale and graphics of Killzone 3 and God Of War 3... Hope next gen microsoft change the optical drive (more space) and better hardware (processing power mainly)

whydoyouask2626d ago (Edited 2626d ago )

Yeah whatever, like so many whiners your just going to buy the next iteration of Halo and Gears like everyone else.

And last time i checked this is Uncharted 3, so how exactly are Gears of War and Halo being milked, but Uc3, God of War 3 with it's other psp renditions, and Killzone 3 NOT being milked?

Solidus187-SCMilk2626d ago

Im sure you hating 360 and worshiping PS3 has nothing to do with you not liking that only the 3rd gears game coming out this year.

You know, 3 uncharted games(4 if you count Vita uncharted) in 4 years, is more milking then 3 gears games in 5 years.

FOXDIE2626d ago

Active Reload, the question is what does 360 have? Apart from Gears this year?

EVILDEAD3602626d ago (Edited 2626d ago )

LOL @ this troll talking about Halo catering to the minority while selling 10 mill..if Halo caters to the minority then what does Uncharted cater too..

Fact is the 360 NEVER needed Uncharted. It' a PS3 title and a great franchise from a STELLAR developer..but let it stay on the PS3..

I'll take Gears for my 360 and UC for the PS3..

Anyways..more famebait from the FAKE 360 site

aviator1892626d ago

I have to disagree with you about alan wake, it wasn't awful at all.

HeavenlySnipes2627d ago (Edited 2627d ago )

don't the fanboys say that its just a male tomb raider? (one that won like the most awards ever)

They are content with having the same franchises keep the 360 alive and play multplatform games which they claim are superior on their console because a screenshot comparison from LoT told them so.

EDIT: For proof, look at the comment on the article. Classic

Jezuz2627d ago

As far as i see there is only one fanboy in the comment section.

HeavenlySnipes2627d ago

read the article, only that one comment was there.

jdfoster002626d ago

How can you say that? It's NOTHING like Tomb Raider... Everythings DIFFERENT! It's just in the same Genre of games... (From a person who has bought every Tomb Raider out they're and every uncharted)

whydoyouask2626d ago

I get it now, your just a fanboy...

coryok2627d ago

before they start trying to compete with uncharted they might want to start somewhere easy, how about they release more than 3 good games each year

once they can start doing that then maybe they can start trying to compete with something outside of fps

Kingdom Come2627d ago (Edited 2627d ago )

Who needs Uncharted when you've got Gears of War?

@ GoldPS3
It's Gears of War 3 that has Dedicated Servers, not Uncharted 3. Don't believe me? Look it up. I would suggest you learn about a game before criticising it, Gears of War 3's Beta was the greatest multiplayer experience I've ever had, even Naughty Dog gave it a glowing review to Cliffy B. Also, Gears of War 3 features more variety, 4 Player Co-Op Campaign, Horde 2.0, Beast Mode and a huge catalogue o multiplayer modes.

Stewie2k82627d ago

Who needs Gears Of War when you got uncharted? ^_^

GoldPS32627d ago

You can keep your lagging, glitching, sausage meat men on steroids game.

Uncharted 3 will be 10x better. Better graphics, story, and dedicated servers.

TruthbeTold2627d ago (Edited 2627d ago )

I didn't know which game you were talking about for sure until you said steroids. Lets be honest here. Both IP's are great. Both IP's look great. Both IP's have hardcore fanboys who are incapable of seeing the goodness of the other, or smelling the proverbial farts of the one they love. *shrug*

guigsy2627d ago

"Uncharted 3 will be 10x better. Better graphics, story, and dedicated servers."

But not better gameplay then? Because that's what actually counts.

jrbeerman112626d ago

Gears has dedicated servers not uncharted.

Why hate on gears? Its a great franchise and so is uncharted. In fact they feed off each other and reward us with two great franchises. Both devs have huge respect for each other as well.

Stop hating, especially when your facts are backwards.

OmegaSlayer2627d ago

I got Uncharted and would like a Gears, because they're just different games :)

KRATOS-PS32627d ago

Uncharted is so much more than Gears ever was and will be. Uncharted has so much more soul in it. It's so awesome to play a drake because he feels so realistic and everything. I don't how often I've played through Uncharted 2 and each time it was a blast. And I don't say anything about the technology behind, that's another chapter which changend a lot in gaming. I mean, Gears is a great game too, but the whole gameplay and style and story is limited. We did see everything in Gears 1. But Drake will go on and discover the entire world.

jdfoster002626d ago

How can you say that after seeing that gameplay of him on that ship? And the recent multiplayer vids? Gears is the same thing every year and isn't on par with Uncharted 3 in any way of form... Dedicated servers means it a better game and experience? LOL You must be stupid! Gears isn't even widely bought by the xbox audience anyway only caters to a small percentage of xbox gamers... Uncharted 3 will be GOTY I mean it will be. You just can't deny it...

whydoyouask2626d ago

God, whiny, whiny fanboy. Don't cry now Fanboy or you might get your tears on your Uncharted branded keyboard.

Gears has sold 6 mil.
Uncharted 4.6 mil.

Your the idiot.

jrbeerman112626d ago (Edited 2626d ago )

Dedicated servers are huge for multiplayer trust me.

You cant say that gears is same every year since its been much longer than a year from gears 2. It has also popularized (not invented but popularized) many different gameplay additions that uncharted has picked up themselves in Cover shooting and horde mode. Now beast mode and improved economy based tower defense horde 2.0 will help push new ideas for better coop multi.

Uncharted has also innovated lets not forget how they are changing the way single player games need to be done, with great popcorn flick set pieces, great motion/voice acting, many epic moments and gameplay tweaks to keep campaign fresh. It also fills the empty void indy jones left after 3rd movie.

Both are fantastic franchises, why cant we enjoy both?

undercovrr2626d ago

Ok I'll give you this one just for the fun of it. You have Gears of War. What else do you have this year? Please, enlighten me
