Nice guess ill pick up the GOTY edition still been busy with BF3 to get any other game

Razmossis1523d ago

Pretty sure most of the GOTY awards went to Skyrim last year

MAJ0R1523d ago

I don't think a game has to get the majority of GOTY's in order to get a GOTY edition.

xPhearR3dx1523d ago

Any game these days can get a GOTY Edition. Pretty much means nothing.

Army_of_Darkness1523d ago (Edited 1523d ago )

ReallY?? I always got the impression that a GOTY edition means that the game sold very well, therefore a re-release with all the DLC and stuff...
why re-release something that didnt sell well in the first place right?! but hey, what do I know;)

xPhearR3dx1523d ago

@Army of Darkness

Yeah, because Two Worlds 2 sold sooooo many copies and won tons of GOTY awards right?

TopDudeMan1523d ago

no one person gets to decide that.

Ducky1523d ago

Might want to give the guys at RockSteady a heads up on that too.

Awesome_Gamer1523d ago

Fact: Uncharted is the best game series this gen

Peppino71523d ago

I remember hearing Sony exclusives don't sell well. I guess that excludes some franchises. Good job guys.

basilezz30301523d ago (Edited 1523d ago )

2011 was very split. Skyrim may have gotten the most, but Portal 2, Uncharted 3, Batman: Arkham City, and Zelda: Skyward Sword were named GotY also.

Either way, this isn't like Borderlands GotY when they only had 1-2 out of around 200+ publications name them GotY.

Hopefully this gives naughty dog a reason to keep the franchise a live even after having three installments. This is by far my favorite franchise this Gen.

Nimblest-Assassin1523d ago

Even though Im a huge fan of Uncharted, they should give it a break... not a Jak and Daxter break, but so they can collect new ideas to make a better game, after all they are working on the Last of Us

PRHB HYBRiiD1523d ago

i sold my uncharted copy but if this comes with all the dlc i might get it again just to play online :)

DFresh1522d ago

You sold your Uncharted copy?
What's wrong with you?
That's crazy talk.
:D

Nimblest-Assassin1523d ago (Edited 1523d ago )

Now thats how you do a GOTY cover....

cough*warner bros* cough

Only these games deserve GOTY editions

-portal 2
-Uncharted 3
-Batman Arkham city
-Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Nimblest-Assassin1523d ago

Well, those games won a majority of the goty awards last year(my history with skyrim is why I did not include it but yes) it is my opinion. I understand the disagrees with my previous comment. Everyone had their own personal goty, those were just the 4 games I enjoyed the most last year

ritsuka6661523d ago (Edited 1523d ago )

To be honest, I don't think Sony even comes close to MS when putting marketing muscle numbers behind their titles, compared to the carpet-bombing campaign that Halo 3 numbers have, this is disapointg numbers...

smashcrashbash1523d ago

Yes because as we know ALL Microsoft games sell well. How many copies did they sell of Alan Wake again? Or Splinter Cell Conviction? Or Banjo Kazooie Nits and Bolts? Or Crackdown 2? Or Forza 4? Remember how they broke sales records and broke the bank? No? Of course you don't because if people like you mentioned all the games that didn't sell well on the 360 it would mess up the crap belief that only Microsoft and Nintendo titles sell well and all Sony titles sell like crap.As long as you only cling to all the titles that sell well your safe in your own little world.

Outside_ofthe_Box1523d ago

I was waiting for a fool to say this. So you are saying that selling 17 million is disappointing? Interesting...

kanetheking1523d ago

xPhearR3dx i remember two world selling over 1.5mil copy's so it did do well XD

Berserk1523d ago

People still play Bf3? hahaha The "Elite" like ME play COD!

raytraceme1523d ago (Edited 1523d ago )

5+5+5= 15 million

total sales =17.32 million

golden abyss sales < 2 million

so yea over 5 million per game in the trilogy ;)

Technicalities are fun.

thats_just_prime1523d ago

Your wrong there are 5 games not 3.

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
Uncharted: Golden Abyss
Uncharted: Drake's Trail

jimbobwahey1523d ago

What's Uncharted: Drake's Trail? Never heard of that before.

fucadastates1523d ago

Uncharted: Drake's Trail is not countet in this, just like god of war betrayal is not countet. if it is. prove it please :D

SilentNegotiator1523d ago

I'm pretty sure that was a promotional flash game that no one "bought"

sikbeta1523d ago

@fucadastates

Betrayal is Phone game duh, of course it doesn't count, doesn't have physical copies and that, so Drake's Trial is a phone game as well or what?

O-T

Great for ND, they're one of the best devs in the industry, keep going!

yewles11523d ago

Hell, if you're gonna' bring a browser flash game into this, then you might as well bring the PS Home mini games too...

Mercenary Madness
Uncharted 3 Fortune Hunter
etc.

See how silly that is now?

neogeo1523d ago

I just picked up Uncharted Drakes SUPER Adventure!
GOTY!

Oh and Drakes Trail was good:)

I wish there was just a "like" button haha. Good to hear it's selling like it should.

Nac1523d ago

I'm still not calling it a "game," but wow, that is a really nice cover.

Nac1523d ago

Disagree all you want, Chapter 18 is a counter to objectivity. An interactive cinematic experience indeed...

Ducky1523d ago

Then tell ND to make an Interactive-Cinematic-Experien ce-Of-The-Year edition.
=p

Nac1523d ago

I'm sorry, I just don't view Uncharted 3 as a "game."

The presentation and design philosophy counters traditional concepts. Naughty Dog set out to make an interactive cinematic experience and I feel that UC3 is nothing less than that.

Hicken1522d ago

What the hell do you mean by "traditional concepts?"

Winning? Losing? Objectives to meet? Moving to a new area? Increasing/varying difficulty? Scoring points? Controller inputs? Requiring player action to progress? Uncharted has everything but point-scoring.

Tell me: what is "traditional?"

All I hear out of your comments is a poorly constructed attempt at criticizing a great series. To be frank, I should just label each of your posts as "trolling," as there's honestly no legitimate reasoning behind what you're saying, and you couldn't even make yourself understood with five bubbles at your disposal.

Nac1522d ago (Edited 1522d ago )

Criticizing? Sweet Jesus no. I love Uncharted and in particular, Uncharted 3. One of the reasons was the "whole cinematic thing". I just take ND at their word on what they want to change about the medium as well as the trepidation to steer away from the term "game" and all the connotations that come with it.

When first discussed in an early Entertainment Weekly article, Amy Hennig declared that Uncharted 3 aspires to be an “interactive cinematic experience” in it's own right. Something I think it did.

http://popwatch.ew.com/2010...

Hell, with the announcement of The Last of Us, Christophe Balestra was quoted as saying, "We're trying to move the medium of video games into an area elevated in the same manner of respect of film. We want to redefine what our medium is even called. 'Video game' is not an accurate name anymore. It is not necessarily a game with rules and a winner and a loser. It's an experience."

http://www.usatoday.com/tec...

Therein lies what I have been trying to convey. Uncharted 3 is less objective then its predecessors. Maybe not in full, but certainly within the constraint of Chapter 18, TheRub' al Khali. There is no score keeping in the desert, no prompt to tell you what the objective is, ammo count on screen, map, inventory list, hell there is no objective at all. Just a man wondering the wastes as much as he is wondering himself. That chapter alone make UC3 my favorite UC as well as my favorite interactive experience. Sure, someone might counter by indicating that at a fundmental level, it is just someone walking. But in truth, it's so much more than that. The action itself is not key, it's the concept and drive. Chapter 18 is powerful because so many roles are filled within it, YOU are with Drake, witnessing Drake, and pushing Drake forward. YOU work as his motivation. During the second night, having YOU be the only thing keeping him walking by pushing forward was brilliant. YOU do not "beat" Chapter 18, you finish it. There is something really new, innovative, and special to that, to have all of these things plus contextual sensitivity and cinematic dynamic camera work.

That is why I don't call it a game, I personally am not "playing," I am experiencing something. Maybe you do not find Chapter 18 enjoyable, maybe it is not "fun". I would counter by saving not everything needs to be "fun" to be a fantastic experience. Afterall, there was nothing fun about looking for Jason in the mall or watching a man almost lose everything in the desert. Despite that, it was still extraordinary. Maybe it makes me "pretentious," I don't care. My "pretension" shows nothing but passion for an experience that blew away all expectations and a group of developers who want to defy all that have come before by creating experiences that are not necessarily traditional. I love it, I get defensive when I hear people criticize UC3 or anything that seems to steer towards this kind of approach and experience. In this case, I made a comment that concerns a label, something I did not agree with bestowing but that 31(at count) did. What I feel is still the same, I also feel that, regardless of what it is called(as much as I may disagree) it does not change the quality that is found within the finished experience. All in all, when it comes down to it I think we all love Uncharted, just in different ways and for different reasons.

Also, I do not need 5 bubbles at my disposal to convey what I need to get across. Just one.

kneon1523d ago

You're right, it's just far to be good to be referred to as merely a game, but I can't come up with a better term.

h311rais3r1523d ago

I never found uc3 all that "fun". It was entertaining but I beat it for the story "which was predictable and just to beat it. I loved 2 but 3 took it too far with the whole cinematic thing.
