Uncharted 3 Equipped to Overtake Gears of War (Interview)

"Besides the announcement of pricing for the new PlayStation Vita, Uncharted 3 was the highlight for many during Sony's E3 2011 Press Conference. The moment Naughty Dog took the stage to provide the industry with never-before-seen gameplay, the audience was fastened into their seats followed by an epic applause that was well deserved. The revolutionized visuals and gameplay elements are truly remarkable and leaves no doubt in my mind that Uncharted 3 will deliver the best third person experience to date, but it must come ready for Microsoft's marquee title, Gears of War 3. The war begins this holiday season when Gears of War 3 ruptures September 20th followed by the release of Uncharted 3 on November 1st. "

Can't wait for the beta on the 28th!

Why does it have to be a competition? Why cant gamers just enjoy both games without ripping on one? Why cant websites like thegameraccess stop polluting the minds of gamers with buckets of nonsense?

LocO_o2589d ago

Makes no sense what so ever.

Gears is a 360 game only
Uncharted is a PS3 game only

If you own a PS3 you are going to buy Uncharted 3
If you own a 360 you are going to buy Gears 3

If you own both a 360 and a PS3 and can only afford one then you have no business being a multi console owner.

AKissFromDaddy2589d ago (Edited 2589d ago )

I don't think competition is buckets of nonsense. In life, everything competes with everything else.

For example, restaurants, car dealers, websites, books, schools, musicians etc.

This is just part of life.

kaveti66162589d ago

Because in the minds of capitalists/social darwinists, people and products can't improve unless there is competition.

I don't believe in it, but the evidence is there.

BeOneWithTheGun2589d ago

I agree. I'm stoked for Uncharted SP action and when my best friend comes over we are gonna nail the coop on Gears. Both top quality games. Both a blast to play. What's not to love?

NewZealander2589d ago

no competition here, im going to enjoy playing both! what an awesome year for gaming!

Tank_Commander_E62589d ago

Well then how do you expect these no named websites to get those valuable web hits and generate ad revenue to put food on their tables? Just ignore them. They'll go away eventually.

Uncharted 3 and Gears of War 3 are the go-to games for both systems.

They are two completely types of games.

Uncharted is the best at what it does and Gears is the best at what it does.

Uncharted 3 will undoubtedly be a stellar single player experience with Naughty working hard to make the multi-player experience on par with the big boys in that compartment.

Gears of War 3 will a 4-player co-op experience and with the crack like Horde 2.0 and Beast mode on top of the dedicated servers..Gears MP is set to dominate Xbox Live.

In other terms..Uncharted 3 will dominate Metacritic and Gears of War 3 (ending the trilogy) will win the sales battle.


KonaBro2589d ago

Uncharted 3 has a better chance of winning Game of the Year as opposed to Gears of War 3. Just going along with your theme.

Aloren2588d ago

I bet they'll both be above 93 on metacritic, so it's not we'll have anything to complain about. Can't wait to get them both.

jc485732589d ago

I would pick up Uncharted over Gears any day. There are some games I rather not deal with as people have different preferences. Even if there are no other games, I wouldn't even play Gears.

theIMP2588d ago

Cool for you, I would rather have both, and will, but if they both dropped on the same day and I could only get one I would get Gears first. See we all have our own taste, I'm just glad I don't have to settle for one or the other. I think that’s the people that lose, the ones that can experience both.

Muffins12232588d ago

well apparently the majority of people would rather pick up gears than uncharted if you compare sells :P

Nick2120042589d ago

While Gears of War 3 was absolutely EPIC (no pun intended) and is set to be a huge success this holiday season, I personally have to give it up to Uncharted 3. We will see what happens this holiday season ;)

seinfan2589d ago

I think that was an intended pun.

king dong2589d ago (Edited 2589d ago )

absolutely wrote just for n4g rubbish. this hit-getting, flame war continuing blog should be removed, and your blog-site should be banned.

i could sort of understand this if they were both being released on the same day, but with a 6 week difference, i fail to see how they are in competition?

this is a prime example of what depths blog-sites sorry "game" sites will go to for hits. compare two big exclusives on n4g, give the edge to the crowd favourite, and watch the hits roll in..... pathetic!

i will be buying both by the way. they both have a place in my game collection

LocO_o2589d ago

@Nick - I am sorry but it hard to take your comment serious when you have a Steelers avatar.

Pats for life.

frankymv2589d ago

Yea, the Uncharted series has quickly become the trilogy that sets the bar for this generation.

LOGICWINS2589d ago

As far as cinematic adventure games on consoles..YES, I will agree with you.

Inside_out2589d ago (Edited 2589d ago )

Uncharted 1 didn't even have multi-player, I guess it set the bar for no Uncharted 2 set the bar for the most cut scenes in a game. You can`t jump off a ledge or even turn a door handle with out triggering a cut scene. Looks like Uncharted 3 will be more of the same, did you here poor Jimmy Fallon say over and over `I didn't do that...o_O...Indiana Drake might be the poster child for the gaming media with his aw shucks Indiana Jones impersonation, dumb jokes and all, but it ends there I`m afraid.

Uncharted is going to get buried coming out against MW3 in there any doubt about that.

Gears Of war, from day one was a hard core title. A terrific story with a great cast of characters and a fantastic hierarchy of villains ( UC you shoot the same guys over and ) that have steadily increase with each iteration. The game has been a genre leader in it`s fantastic cover system ( full year ahead of UC ) and over the top weapons and some of the best brutal melee combos ever in any game. Add to that co-op ( from day 1 ) campaign, the introduction of the horde mode now standard with all games, well at least the ones that matter and some of the best multi-player around. The game is not for the faint of heart, one chainsaw death will tell you that and the producers aren't making any excuses about the mature content.

If that wasn't enough, the game has sold 12++ million and should be a massive hit this September recording the most pre-orders of any exclusive ever.

The fanboys don`t like the sales argument until it`s in their favor. If uncharted had COd numbers, that would be all we would here about. Have a vote tomorrow among people who PAY ( unlike the media ) for their games, I doubt Uncharted would be top ten on any list.

Sarobi2589d ago

Of course all of what you are saying will only get you so far because of course its YOUR opinion, there are many people that would argue saying that uncharted has done enough to earn its spot. Uncharted has had two great games and has quite the fanbase, sure it might not make COD sales numbers but sales numbers doesn't benefit us gamers now does it?

"Uncharted is going to get buried coming out against MW3" I see no competition between the two, the only competition MW3 has is with BF3, which may just bury MW3 alive.

frankymv2589d ago

I think your head is inside out if you think MW3 will bury uncharted.

SoapShoes2589d ago (Edited 2589d ago )

Genre leader in its(no apostrophe) fantastic cover system that was a full year ahead of Uncharted?

Killswitch did the same cover system in Gears a full three years before it came out.

Resident Evil 4 did chainsaw deaths two years before Gears. You couldn't use one but it had the same mature content.

Genre leading? I think not!

HeavenlySnipes2589d ago

Uncharted is praised BECAUSE instead of showing cutscenes they allow the player to play through the cinematic moments. Like the building falling, the tank sequence in the village, the train sequence, the helicopter sequence etc..

Ha ha.. ain't that the truth! Finally, someone speaks out.

DigitalRaptor2588d ago (Edited 2588d ago )

Of course according to inside_out in his regular anti-Sony & CoD/Microsoft preachings, only games that sell well matter and there can be no room for more than what the Xbox 360 offers.

Oh well.. I guess this poser gamer will enjoy his shooters whilst I enjoy the variety that Sony happily provides.

Sales... haha. You're so mainstream it's funny! a Bieber fan by any chance?

Kungfue2588d ago


LOL gears will sell more than all uncharted combined in 1 week?

lets see


Uncharted 1 = 3.64m
Uncharted 2 = 4.66m
Uncharted 3 = ?

thats already above 8m with no uncharted 3, once Uncharted 3 is out thats 10m above.

None of the gears even sold more than 8m let alone 10m in 1 week SO GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR INSANELY DUMB prediction.

No wonder you have 1 bubble.

I'm all set for uncharted and not to mention were close to the beta:).

Active Reload2589d ago

Gears 3 is all I'm waiting on, and I'm good.

theIMP2588d ago

Man I am really anticipating Gears too, but I think UC3 is going to be great too. They are BOTH going to overtake my spare time.
