Michael Pachter has high expectations on the sales potential of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves for the Playstation 3.
"it’s been a long time since we’ve seen a ‘Game of the Year’ kind of game come out of Sony." lol yeah 12 months since LBP, what happened to Mirrors edge being the big game changer for EA. Tbh i dont even think he has a ps3. @godmars u missed him having a fap over the modern warfare 360 on the gametrailers bonus round, supposedly MS killer plan is to outwit sony with a 250gig hdd, oh lol wut the 250gb ps3 is already out and bundled! pachter u suck donkey balls.
TBH I doubt he even knows what a game console looks like!
I still consider KZ2 to be GOTY material, but I think UC2 will take it.
Sh!T now Uncharted 2 is gonna flop...pachter curse!!!!
When was the last 'Game of the Year' quality title that came out exclusive to the 360? (Not PC or PS3). Gears 2?
is kinda right. you also have to remember this was taped before ps3 was confirmed to have a 250gb system gears 2 fable 2 or maybe l4d.
L4D's on pc. & Patcher is always wrong. He just doomed Uncharted. :\
Pachter, stay away from Uncharted 2! I don't want your "always wrong" aura to get even near this game!! your existence in the gaming community is like a curse!
Your fail is more catchy than swine flu
I just got beat to it 6 ways from Sunday! And I knew it coming in here! Pachter is a 360 fanboy and wants to jinx Uncharted 2!
Please never put Fable 2 and GotY in the same sentence :p
Uncharted 2 is a game changer for 1up and Eurogamer. The two main sites I did not expect a 10/10 from.
Uncharted 2 was headed for great sales... Pachter's prediction is a game changer!
A game with a completely broken multiplayer does not deserve GotY. I was looking for to Gears 2 as much as anybody but the whole thing was a disappointment. The campaign had a lot of parts that dragged on WAAAAY to long! The underground part was painful. Not to mention the multiplayer is STILL broken! I can't believe how many reviewers gave it a 9. Completely broken multiplayer is something that's subjective -- it's objective. No reviewer can go "I really like how I can't play online" so it's should have been docked points, like 2! I remember how GameSpot waited to post their review until after KZ2 was publicly available so they could "Test out the multiplayer on the public servers" but they gave Gears 2 a 9 without doing that. /rant Oh yeah, Pachter can go fvck himself.
seems people dislike fable and gears. uc2 yu can get hit with a rocket launcher and get right bake up. now thats what i call broken. ive seen ak's beaten by pistols at close range.
Reminds me of how in Gears 2 you can take 50 bullets to the head and when you finally go down you can lose enough blood to fill a swimming pool and still survive as long as a buddy comes over and taps on your shoulder. At least Gears 2 had co-op to help you get through that dragged-on boring campaign. Fable II had co-op too but you couldn't even bring your own character to your friends world. You just took the form of some random jackass and tagged along with your friend or had an affair with his wife. Why are we even having this conversation? Comparing Uncharted 2 with Gears 2 and Fable II is an insult to Naughty Dog.
peter moly said he didn't want two major players within one world. so player 2 plays the side kick. as for gears well it atleast has 2 player splitscreen coop unlike uc2 hell it have 4 p coop too unlike uc2's 3 player. textures still go to gears over kz2,uc1/2 and mgs4!! uc2 you take 5 head shots or more lol unless sniper. but thats true in gears. wanna talk about viseral guns/combat ? you get body parts in gears not uncharted. you got chainsawing, head stomping, beatdowns and human shields in gears uncharted gives you punch and kicks. wheres the flamethrower, mortars,bow andhammer of dawn type weapons, in uc2???
"it’s been a long time since we’ve seen a ‘Game of the Year’ kind of game come out of Sony." I guess a long time for Pachter is a couple months, what about Killzone 2? Thats definitely GOTY material if ya ask me.
ya kinda ridiculous when even 360 fanboys admit that their last GOTY (AAA) material game was gears 2
They had Halo Wars. Game of the year, no? /s And yeah, Patcher must be getting a little touched in the head to have completely disregarded Killzone2.
Pachter is soooo good at his job.
Uncharted 2 is a game changer for Sony, nuff said
From the article: "Although Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune is one of the best games on the Playstation 3, many thought that the exclusive title didn’t sell as much as it should have." I couldn't agree more! The first Uncharted was underrated and deserved to sell like hotcakes IMO! All the Sony hate from the media back then...Professionals my ass! I sincerely hope that Among Thieves sells millions upon millions! Naughty GOD deserve it for their hard work!
Too many Tomb Raider and Gears comparisons from people that never played the game
I was thinking the same thing when I saw the title.
I wasn't aware Pachter actually played games. I thought he just spewed whatever random bullsh1t comes to his head.
This guy needs to keep his mouth shut! Almost everything he says is delusional and opposite of what he said it would be, way to curse Uncharted 2 and Sony!
Uncharted 2 is the only game to bring the gameplay/graphics/visual/detai ls and story to a higher level of gaming in the industry. Killzone 2 is only game they maybe compare with Uncharted 2 if we speak about the chance of gaming of the future.
Of course! Uncharted 2 bleeds quality
if i make a lot of inane predictions, i will get a few right.
He's wrong about things so often it's hard to take him seriously. It's just a matter of deciding how he's wrong, will Uncharted sell more than he's predicting or less? I hope more, but you never know. His total ignorance with regards to LBP's multiple GOTY awards is also pretty damn funny. Not to mention Killzone 2 will likely end up with quite a few GOTY noms itself.
Patchter fails 54.2% of the time... hmmm that reminds of something.
my heater fails the same amount
Hopefully Sony will just show that commercial where the girlfriend thinks she's been watching a movie for the last few days and ward off Pachter's evil mojo.
when the facts show playstation was never about just 1 game. its clearly obvious playstation 3 isnt going anywhere and all of its games are selling to its install base in such a short amount of time since ps3s launch. the media just wants to be right when fact of the matter is the fans have been right all along. with ps3 being 299 it doesnt matter how much they bash the ps3 and its games. its gonna sell. now with ps3 exclusives being the main desire of gamers hearts its not enough to downplay a game that just purly could not be done on a old, outdated, multiple disc needing xbox360. so what is the media to do? simple, focus thier hate on pspgo. its all apart of sonys plan to constantly make the media look stupid. sony will make reviewers busy with psp minis, psn exclusives, ps2 remastered and of course generation defining ps3 games and the ever expanding HOME. to top it all off heres todays latest bluray releases. now back to xbox360 news. today we have some dlc for a multiplatform game, a old retro namco arcade comes to xbla, a new shirt for your avatar, gears 3 releases with 3 disc. 1 disc is single player campaign, the second disc is multiplayer and the third disc is all the dlc you bought for gears 2 and a new mode called escort service. netflix has hancock buffering on your screen and ummm thats about it but you probably already knew this if you use twitter. facebook us and we will let you know when you can drop that battery operated controller and wave to us while playing whack a mole with natal.
RAM MAGNUMS- If u wanna talk about the 360, the open zones to the right. As far as Uncharted 2, the media will definetly try to spin this. Ur right, the fans were correct all along.
certainly Uncharted will push a couple of hundred thousand incremental boxes. Not five million boxes Like xbox360 games. Well he got that right.
ya, you'll have that when you actually have a SELECTION to choose from....not just Halo (cartoony ran in the ground FPS) or Gears......oh and not having a AAA exclusive since Nov of 09 might have people flock specific games also LOL! PS3= quality, variety, and mature games as well as family....and we dont have all 12 year olds on the PSN either and have fun playing as raiden :P
@Rising- I dont thk any SINGLE game can push 5 million units. Its a combination of different exclusives that sells consoles. Heck the only games id buy a console for would be GTA5, Agent, or MW2.
That this gentleman here is a mod of this website and he only flames hard the PS3 because the mods have detected that the PS3 fans are far more active than his inferior counterparts. So in the need to flame, they generate traffic and bandwith and, somehow, money with it. Think of it, these guys are alarmingly delusional, no one with a reasonable mind would say the things this person "Rising" and the other one "Patchstation" says to the four winds. I cannot concieve that people like this is outside in the world, living, interacting with other people, is frieghtening beacuse people like these are the one behind really sick, perverted and twisted stuff. So, i dont believe that they are xbots anymore... fvck i dont even believe that they are bashing the PS3 because they like to do it, they do it because they are employees of this site, and we have all fallen into their game. Sh!t... sick world.... ejem... XBOTS FVCKING SUCK!!! ok now im outta here!
you're gonna jynx everything!!! (PS I highly doubt he would, )
I think the game should sell well and i really hope it does, not just for sony, but for ND. The MP is class. The first Uncharted should have had alot more sales, and i'm hoping alot more of the first game will sell on the back on the second game. YOU SHOULD PLAY THE FIRST BEFORE THE SECOND. You get introduced to the characters in the first game, the shooting dynamics, cover,etc. It's an excellent adventure in it's own right. If your going to buy the second, get the first. It's even cheaper now!!
IF YOU OWN A PS3 BUY THIS GAME OR ELSE.
god will kill a kitten for every PS3 owner that dont have Uncharted 2???
Ahhh! I love Uncharted... but hate kittens.... Decisions, decisions.
btw guys has any one ever noticed that ND is Naughty Dog and also Nathan Drake humm?
Thought it'd be too obvious to point out =P guess not xD Nice 1 m8
omg its a conspiracy.. *puts on tinfoil hat* go UC2 by the way! what a game... absolutely stunning, and that's just multiplayer... from a franchise that was built on incredible single player... holy moley! PS3 owners... BUY THIS GAME!!!
Patcher has announced that you can now subscribe to his weekly blog. The cost is only 500 ms points. He takes paypal.
he never predicts the correct stuff. Im scared now
jinxed by patcher... :(
Has just recieved the Patcher curse =(
The game industry would be completely lost without Sony here to lead it.
not just for Sony...but for games overall. Support Uncharted 2. They filled the bluray with awesomeness. Even if you only own a 360 and have a thing against all things Sony, at least root for Uncharted 2 from the sidelines so Microsoft starts giving you more multiple disc games to keep up.
What is it?. Why are people still downplaying the PS3 game collection. Didn't LBP win GOTY08?. Didn't MGS4 set new boundaries in gaming. Didn't KZ2 set new FPS and graphics standards?. What the f*ck do people want?. I am getting really pissed off with people saying that Uncharted 2 is the first real big game for the PS3. Its haters like these that are fooling the masses in thinking that the PS3 have no games when it already have more quality games than comp.
Uncharted 2 there is nothing left to say.
Played the online CO-OP for the first time today, when I should of been studying, I played it for 2 hours...it was SO DAMN FUN. SO FOTHERMUCKING FUN!!! Like I mentioned before, I bought my new LCD TV, for this beast along with the other games being rolled out...I can't fuggn wait.....sorry for going off topic, but I just had to express myself.... :P
that toys r us buy 2 get 1 free sale is going to help sales of this game. us lucky ps3 owners! too bad they don't stock demon souls :(
Forget he said she says,FIRST DAY buy 4 Me...the game is bad ass hooked on the demo.can't wait till it drops..
Once again, Pachter can go pack his analysis up where the sun don't shine. No one cares about what this dude thinks. He's just used as a match to ignite fanboy flames.
Whens the last time we seen GOTY material for the PS3? LBP maybe? That game won more GOTY awards then any title in 08. Well maybe GTA 4 received a little more.
Still...for a new IP and genre-creating title like LBP...a "kiddie" game, so to speak, to take so many GOTY awards from a long-running franchise like GTA....that's impressive.
Pachter still around?
MGS 4 was a "game changer." Little Big Planet was a "game changer." Killzone 2 was a "game changer." now Uncharted 2. how many awesomely epic games does the PS3 need before the internet and the menagerie of analysts get their heads out of their asses and realize that A) Gamers just want good games. they have been getting them consistently on the PS3 since 2007. B) Only Sony cares about how they're doing sales wise, and they are doing remarkably well (selling 10 million a year for 3 years straight now is quite impressive by anyone's standards). is Uncharted 2 a "game changer?" like i care. i get to play it in a few short days, and add it to my rather sizable collection of kickass PS3 games with Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time following at the end of the month (i've had Demon's Souls for a while now, so that's already in the collection). it's like people can't accept that Sony has managed to turn all that hatred around and is delivering on it's promises without having to nickel and dime the fanbase to do so. which is more than can be said for a lot of the competition out there.
Like I said on a related topic: There have already been killer ap's for Sony, released back in 2007 with Uncharted: Drakes Fortune.
Uncharted 2 rapes the whole competition and probably future games also.
unfortunately a game that comes out later and is fresh when they do awards will probably take it from uncharted even know u2 is the better game. MW2 will probably get it from most sites primarily because of it's November release.
Its been in a long time sice a goty gaME from sony? MGS4 LBP killzone 2 infamous need i go on?
