Naughty Dog are releasing a prequel to the original Uncharted, and it will be a motion comic voiced by two actors from the original game.
they're jus milking this franchise eh
I'd hate to see it turn into another generic PS exclusive!
Uncharted Uncharted 2:Among Thieves Uncharted: Eye Of Indra In which Eye of Indra is a prequel story to Uncharted 1 in a form of a motion comic voiced by your favorite actors from Uncharted 1&2. .....Yea there milking it alright. Need I remind you that Halo has spinsoffs such as Halo Wars and Halo: The Board game. Not to mention Halo ODST (3-4 hour campaign/Firefight) should have been $30 but instead they decided to bundled it with another disc that has all the multiplayer maps in which they decided to raise the price tag to $60.
It's not a game...
not another game. Fans will get excited. It's not really milking the franchise as it's not Uncharted Parties 8, Super Uncharted Bros PS3, Super Uncharted Bros Brawl, Super Uncharted Galaxy 1 & 2, Uncharted Tennis, Uncharted Bowling, Uncharted in Olympus, Paper Uncharted, and Uncharted Cart all in the same Gen (~3 years into it).
* Halo: Combat Evolved o Halo PC o Halo Custom Edition * Halo 2 o Halo 2 Vista o Halo 2 Multiplayer Map Pack * Halo 3 o Halo 3: ODST o Halo 3 Beta * Halo Wars Upcoming Games * Halo: Reach Lego Halo And more to come from the Halo Cow..
It's not really 'milking the franchise.' Some fans of the game would like to see a prequel. Others, myself among them, could care less if they made a motion comic about Uncharted, but it's there for the fans. If you're not a fan, you're not obligated to check it out.
Only 2 games and 1 comic and you say milking, so WTF are you going to say about Halo franchise, hell I'm sure we'll see as many Halo games as Window$ versions and I was mad about seeing Mario everywhere "Halo Seven in development for xbox 360"
ur website sucks balls.
Your site's a joke, eh?
The difference is that the truly "milked" franchises don't really improve. The jump from Uncharted 1 to Uncharted 2 was HUGE. By the way, you obviously didn't read the news article: "We have an exclusive announcement! We're releasing a prequel story to Uncharted 1 as a motion comic voiced by your favorite actors from the two games. Stay tuned for more info.” It's not a game.
lol major hating on G3? This comment is void as its not a game. Halo says hi.
Why don't you go to the site and read what it is before making such a stupid comment, it just made you look like an ignorant fanboy.
No doubt we're gonna see at least 2 more uncharted titles on the ps3. I mean at least CoD, Halo, Mario, And Gran Turismo were spread out across a few platforms =\. I guess all im all what I'm trying to say is. Fully agree with OP
I was at Kmart the other day and saw a Halo Action set from Megablocks. When will we see Uncharted toys?
...No. Halo anyone? That's milking. This isn't. What a way to insult a great franchise guys. And your comments belong in the Openzone. I love how the mods delete James Bond's comments and leave these comments intact.
I think Milking is anywhere pass 4 series.. I prefer trilogies in that the story doesn't get old too fast or old at all a forth is stretching it a bit but thats still fine everyone needs a good prequel or remake once in a while .... If you wanna know what the definition of milking is look up SEGA and NINTENDO in the dictionary..

Never understood why people say Halo is being milked when their are games like Final Fantasy, Metal Gear and Mario out there. Current Halo games: 5 Current Metal Gear Solid games: 10 Current Final Fantasy games: 172 Current Mario games: 232 Really???
"Milking", yes. Two games and an animated comic in three years... Besides, as long as the games maintain quality, they can release as many as they want.
When we see the Uncharted Mountain Dew cans on store shelves, then I think it is safe to say they are milking the franchise...
I wish ND could release an Uncharted every year if they can maintain the same quality. There are a lot of stories still to be told (Think about Hollywood movies).
How long has all those franchises been out when comparing them to halo ?
As long as what we get is great entertainment every time, then they can milk all they want. And that goes for any franchise, imo.
I was gonna say how could they have a sequel when Nate dies at the end of 2 then I realized this was a prequel. lol jk I have not beaten the game yet. Would be funny if true though.
Now that M$ has purchased the rights to Infinite Undiscovery as strictly their ip (LOL!) I think we can expect Halo Undiscovery as the first rpg Halo game. How about a Halo baseball game after that? Uncharted on the other hand is just following a formula for a gaming series.
Well its not another game, just a motion comic. If they do plan on making a UC3 or prequel to one as a game, i hope they take there sweet time on it. Also i would want ND to work on other projects
yah, I know what you mean, and I agree with ND working on other projects. Maybe do a few new games between U2 and U3 to make sure it is another significant release.
Nice article, good story but I'm no that interested in this as much as Among Thieves!
Would love to see an Uncharted prequel on the PSP instead
Hm, A PSP Prequel would be cool!
Yeah, release the prequel on PSP and the last of the trilogy on PS3. That would be cool.
Sounds like a job for Ready At Dawn... I want the prequel to be about Nathan and Eddie Raja working together, there's some past there and I want to see how they fell out and what over. The end should lead towards Nathan finding Sully almost as a mentor.
The falling out was over Cloe! But wouldn't it be awesome if Drake stole her from him, in the middle of a big job!
its not a trilogy, it will be an ongoing thing,like R&C and Jak & Daxter.
Eddy Raja is the best. I too would love to see some history between him and Drake. I was left starved after no flashbacks on any of the characters relation with Drake. Would love a prequal game to clear that up.
@ hehe, I will be back!!!
I wonder how they are going to release this. Will it be over I-Tunes like the soundtrack or will it be on PSN? Either way Ill be buying it.
they'll be distributed through psn. Most likely exclusive to psp, considering the fact that they're launching a comic service. http://www.joystiq.com/2009...
Well i knew about the comic service but it wouldnt be good for it to be PSP only. Im pretty sure not everyone who has a PS3 and likes Uncharted has one. Also the Dead Space motion comic and Watchmen motion comic was on PSN. I only asked which because the soundtrack is ITunes only and they carry a lot of motion comics as well.
true, it wouldn't garner as much appeal in sales if it remained exclusive to psn/psp. Although, I do believe it's mostly guaranteed that there will be a physical release over digital. Most comic book fans prefer printed copies of their comics, or maybe that's just me.
Anyone wanna bet it ends with Nate on the phone with Elena setting up the expedition for Francis Drake's coffin?
probably but the way eddie raja talked to drake when he got caught looked like they havent seen each other in a long time unless they make it out to be in the prequal *few years later* then end it with that scene getting on the boat taking off to the location then yes that could work
Or at least have it end by showing Nate watching Elena's Show. That to me would connect it to Uncharted 1 perfectly.
well thats another possibility but we dont need ask them what to put in it idk where they get thier magic from but i know its gonna be good regardless uncharted god: among gods ftw lol
There's also Gab Roman that Drake was familiar with.
I dont think the word "generic" and the words "Playstation exclusive" really go together.
keep getting 5/5 and 10/10s, yea they start to become generic in that sense lol...
True. I mean look at gems like Africa, Lair, Haze,...... you get my point. :/
The only point you made is what a PS3 hater you are,but we all knew that anyway. Those games you mentioned (more like the ones you'se keep clinging to) might not have been much better than mediocre, but they werent generic. How can Afrika be generic if its in a genre practically on its own. And Lairs generic? What was there a glut of Dragon combat games being released at the time? Even Haze had a few twists and wasn't have as bad as made out.
Two games, a movie, and now a comic prequel... Great! :D the more the better. Same with Halo. If only Nintendo would do the same for Zelda...I might still have a Wii now. Mario is the wrong character to be giving 3-4 titles a year.
I wonder how its going to be released, a interactive game? Movie? on a console? internet?
Cool, more story for the uncharted world.
would this be milkinG?
No, if Sony does it then it is okay but if anyone else does it then its milking. Duh. Haven't you learned anything here?
7 1/2 (ODLC doesn't count as a full game) halo games vs 2 + 1 comic just can't wait for those halo 2k10,2k11, etc.. I know m$ has a 10 year plan for halo :)
Yea cuz making a motion comic is totally milking it -_-" Read the article please. @PenisWagon No for Sony making a new game for a new IP is milking compared to making an overpriced expansion for a last gen IP *cough* Green Power Ranger *cough*
NO, it's not even a game. so don't try spinning it that way. Milking it is when you have 2 mediocre sequels in one year (ex. Halo, GH). And @weniswagon just pick a side and stick to it. It's like your bipolar or something.
since when is releasing a sequal milking? idiots MW2 Prestige editition, mw2 hardened edition, mw2 regular edition, mw2 xbox360, mw2 drinks, mw2 controllers, mw2 headsets, mw2 themes, mw2 skins n faceplates. thats milking
@3.. 2 games in 3 years, so a big fat "no" is the answer to your question. @3.1.. Aren't you the persecuted party? If you want to apply "milking" to this situation then you're either a vindictive idiot or making stupid knee-jerk judgements about a console you despise (childish avatar by the way). Either way, you're beneath my interest as of now.
Who honestly cares how many games come out for a franchise? If you aren't a fan, move on, simple as that. I hate Halo but I could care less if other people enjoy it. The only thing that bothers me is the morons that claim it's the best game ever because of it's huge sales numbers.
Its a Comic but it will be the game that will be on PSP before Uncharted 3 comes out
I hope it's similar to the animated prequel movies for Heavenly Sword.
I really hope Eddy Raja appears in this prequel. I'd love to see how their relationship turned out to be, plus Eddy Raja is one of the most comedic and iconic characters in video game history, for me. *To those who disagree, GTFO you ugly kognoks!
I miss Eddy. Hey this prequel might show Nate and his old crew I mean in UC2 one of the pages in Drake's journal had the names Harry Flynn and Eddy Raja and two crossed out names so I'm assuming Nate had two more old friends.
ND really made a great game... I love it.
I was humming 'let's talk about sex' during that scene, lol. x3
to see an Uncharted prequel that told the story of sir Francis Drake and his fight to stop the Spanish leaving the island with the cursed idol. Ships being boarded, cutlasses, muskets and cannon! I reckon Naughty Dog could create some amazing and ground breaking visuals of a man o war under full sail, on a heaving sea. Forsooth Naughty Dog , go yonder and make it so ! Sorry, got carried away there. Just need Friday to come!
Thank God it isn't a PSP game. That was my first thought on seeing this. Since it's a motion comic (and I'll get to see it), I'm all for it! Uncharted 2 is one of the finest crafted game I've played, and I'm not even halfway through it yet. Love it!
If you took away the amazing presentation and gameplay you would still be left with a story that boasts some of the most clever writing i've experienced in a game. Good move to breathe more life into these characters by fleshing out their backstories.
