"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.

Godmars2904312d ago

TBH I doubt he even knows what a game console looks like!

Panthers4312d ago

I still consider KZ2 to be GOTY material, but I think UC2 will take it.

SnuggleBandit4312d ago

Sh!T now Uncharted 2 is gonna flop...pachter curse!!!!

Deputydon4312d ago

When was the last 'Game of the Year' quality title that came out exclusive to the 360? (Not PC or PS3).

Gears 2?

jetlian4312d ago (Edited 4312d ago )

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.

Greywulf4312d ago

L4D's on pc.

& Patcher is always wrong.

He just doomed Uncharted. :\

badz1494312d ago

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!

JoySticksFTW4312d ago

Your fail is more catchy than swine flu

DaTruth4312d ago (Edited 4312d ago )

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!

Christopher4312d ago

Please never put Fable 2 and GotY in the same sentence :p

Sarcasm4312d ago

Uncharted 2 is a game changer for 1up and Eurogamer.

The two main sites I did not expect a 10/10 from.

DaTruth4312d ago

Uncharted 2 was headed for great sales... Pachter's prediction is a game changer!

Face Palm4312d ago

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.


Oh yeah, Pachter can go fvck himself.

jetlian4312d ago

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.

Face Palm4311d ago (Edited 4311d ago )

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.

jetlian4311d ago

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.

SnuggleBandit4312d ago (Edited 4312d ago )

ya kinda ridiculous when even 360 fanboys admit that their last GOTY (AAA) material game was gears 2

Lifendz4312d ago

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.

Major_Tom4312d ago

Pachter is soooo good at his job.

Uncharted 2 is a game changer for Sony, nuff said

MGS_fanatico_4312d ago (Edited 4312d ago )

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!

Marceles4312d ago

Too many Tomb Raider and Gears comparisons from people that never played the game
