Sony Corp.'s Uncharted 2: Among Thieves for the Playstation 3 was price cut to under $50 in a new retail promotion.
godly deal for the GOTY
There's NO reason not to buy this game if you have a PS3. I would gladly pay the full 60 bucks, let alone less. GOTY 2009, no doubt about it. Only fellow PS3 Exclusive Killzone 2 comes close to UC2.
GotY 2009 - Uncharted 2 (PS3).
Uncharted 2 will cruise to GOTY victory.
I guess this deal is Amazon reaction to Best Buy 2+1 promotion. I'm a regular Amazon customer but Best Buy offer was too good to pass.
except from Gametrailers: GOTY 2009: Modern Warfare 2 PS3 GOTY 2009: Modern Warfare 2 360 GOTY 2009: Modern Warfare 2 Multiplatform GOTY 2009: Modern Warfare 2 FPS GOTY 2009: Modern Warfare 2
is so good that I can't even play it any more. It's kind of hard to explain really. After I played through on Hard.....I've just been in some sort of a daze, thinking about and analyzing what I saw ever since. Was it a game or was it a movie? 0.0
This is a great deal for one of the best games this gen and possibly ever. Uncharted 2 is a pure master piece and EVERY PS3 owner needs to buy this game, even if you only bought your system for Blu ray as this game will show off your system, and give you the same experience of a movie if not better. Uncharted 2 should sell much better than it's doing since it is one of the best games created in a looooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ng time. Now on to the game that's GOING to top it. God of War 3 is absolutely amazing, if you haven't pre-ordered it do yourself a favor and do it now to get the demo. The videos on IGN, gametrailers, and every other site don't do this game justice. It plays like perfection and looks as good as if not better than Uncharted 2 (at times it looks better) already and this demo was made in May 09 (over 6 months ago). God of War 3 is GOTY potential for 2009 already even with all the other big name games coming out next year, and that's no joke. Naughty Dog, Polyphony, and Sony Santa Monica are killing the PS3.
Too bad I purchased it on day 1.
I thought that they cut back the price in general and I was getting screwed because I recently bought the game, but this is just amazon cutting the price.
ha ha.. tell me about it. it's a freaking long movie though. i had to show the game (my second play through) to my friends and they just kept coming back every night for three continuous nights. they just loved the "movie".
am watching some mates play it in fact (mp) as I actually type this. The game is better than I ever imagined and just keeps giving!
Agreed with the two above about the whole movie thing. It's actually funny cause that Sony commercial for Uncharted 2 became a reality for me of sorts. My girlfriend curling up on the couch beside me just to watch, wondering what will happen next and get rather attached to the story and all. Of course she knew it was a game and not a movie. Though it did make us both laugh later when we saw that commercial again after she had watched me beat the game. That being said, I've been saying it since Drake's Fortune, and the same rings very true for UC2: Uncharted isn't just a game. It's an experience. At this price it's way too good to pass up. I was more than happy to pay full price for probably the greatest game this generation.
I always feel like a sucker when I buy a game at full price, only to have them drop the price shortly afterwards. But U2 is so good, it doesn't really bother me this time. Hopefully this will get more people to buy the game, otherwise, the games industry might get another crazy idea and think people don't want games like this! Buy the game people!
Yeah a interactive movie more like it. Not some long boring cutscenes like in some games or where monkeys fiend for cig's.
MGS4 was a great game... but sometimes cut scenes were unbearably long. the diagram ones... even Kojima agrees. but Uncharted 2 is sweet as good as a movie.
Great Deal, more supporters for this amazing franchise
I got it for $50 on launch day. :D
And guess what bots? You'll never play a game of this quality on the failbox.
The following copies SOLD of Uncharted2 don't count as SALES, because the game has hit the bargain bin. Which is again the RULES. Let it be Known that uncharted was only able to sell a million or less, at the PROPER price point from October 13-November 2 (R.I.P.) I don't make the rules I just enforce them. Thank You.
Shadow Man's a dumbass (I guess the alert wasnt necessary since everybody knows that).
ALERT! ALERT! YOU WERE ADOPTED BY CLOWNS BECAUSE YOUR PARENTS KNEW YOU WERE A DUMBASS FROM THE GET GO.
But I guess that price for Uncharted 2 is insane value :)
shadow bot take a look at this http://img29.imageshack.us/...
with 3 bubbles, I don't see you enforcing much, lol.... Tracked by: 8 users Ignored by: 100 users LOL, you are the most hated worthless thing on the site. Well, you and that MetalGearRising guy.
is that naughty Dog has joined the gaints,this is perhaps at the top 3 best games ever in this gen All I played was until ch7,it's unbelievable,Im in a bad mood these days,I don't want to finish it or gay tony in this mood :( and btw Sully Rules,he is my favorite uncharted character ever,he is So underrated,they always talk about that overrated arbiter in halo while no one talk about sully sully is the man
well he's pretty un-involved in U2, After the cave thing, You'll get to see him again in the Ending I think. He needs more participation in U3.
I agree its in my top 3 as well. Id probably have it next Bioshock and maybe CoD4/MGS4/GTA4. Your only in Chapter 7, but believe me the game gets better. There are parts were the game slows down and gets back to classic Uncharted towards the end, and just when you think thats it, the game blows you away with another set piece.
I believe the reason why no one talks about Sully cause he took a hooker to church.....*sniker*
more people should play this game the cheaper the better.
go get it now
They know this game is a hit and are gonna move a ton of copies this way. Amazon is a very smart dealer of the games indeed...if I didn't have the game already, I'd be all over this!
I just pre-ordered GOW III Ultimate Edition for only $54 !! So freakin happy :)
you should really not miss this game!
Would you rather have an award for game of the year or biggest selling game of the year??
I would rather have the game that sold the most, because that's what all real gamers think of when they are gaming. Sales. >_> Now let me ask you a question. Would you rather have the console that came out first and sold the most (US) or would you rather have the console of the decade? nvmd I know the answer.....
@Father Murder Well, depending on where the GOTY award is coming from, the former could be as insignificant (in terms of an accolade for quality) as the latter. As for best selling, we all know that doesn't mean anything. Just look at all other forms of entertainment and you'll clearly see that best-selling practically never translates to better quality. In music you have people like Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears and Beyonce being annual Billboard chart-toppers. In movies you have things like Transformers, X-Men, Harry Potter, Fast and the Furious, Ironman, etc. leading the modern box office charts. Not to say that some of them can't be decent (I rather enjoyed Transformers and Ironman and the Wolverine movies, plus I like some of the artists that make it on the billboard charts sometimes) but rarely (if ever) are they the best there is to offer. Often times they're just mediocre. The real 'best of the best'/gems are the ones that sell only marginally but the real critics, you'll see, absolutely praise said artists or films. That being said, a GOTY award can be just as insignificant depending on the source. If it's GameTrailers or something like Spike's VGAs then I wouldn't care at all. However if it's a Game of the Year award from somebody like the AIAS or Game Developers Choice Awards, then I'd happily take that over top selling any day of the week. And that's the real rating of quality in my book. As long as the sales are well enough to make a profit for the developers and to warrant a sequel, than that's all that matters as far as sales are concerned, it doesn't always have to be lets-use-a-bigger-budget-for-a dvertising-than-the-actual-game -cost halo sales.
They bundle it for free and still didn't help sell more than a million, now they drop the price? LOL
@Shadow. Have you played Uncharted DF. or Among Thieves?
There's a bundle available? That's news to me.
maybe some day.
Yea maybe someday your mother may collect all the money she gets from the streets and buy you a PS3.
guess 360 fanboys can't read because ONLY AMAZON.COM IS SLASHING THE PRICE also Uncharted 2 already sold more than a million copies in it's 2 weeks only dumb xbots like you can make good news like a game being cheaper sound bad also just to hurt your fanboy ego Forza 3 you know the game that's TEH DEFINATIVE RACING SIM barely sold half the amount a glorified demo GT5P sold day 1 SUCK IT!!!
First of all more than a million in its first 2 weeks are really good sales numbers, secondly only a retarded fanboy would spin a price drop of an amazing game into a bad thing.
Bargin bin!!! Hell it was a bargin at $60.00 because I would've paid $80.00!! Excellent experience. If you own a PS3 and don't have it get it. If you don't own a PS3 get one then get Uncharted Drakes Fortune then Among Thieves!
Is this what happens to mindless droids once they burn 600 holes in their wallet to get a PS3? Seriously though, post what your mind says and not your ass if you may, who spends 80$ on a video game?
Who spends $60 on DLC? Oh that's right,BOTS! It makes me smile knowing that you will never have as good a game as Uncharted 2 on your crap console.
Face cream Why don'tyou worry about yourself and let him spend his own money how he sees fit. IMHO I would pay $100 for Uncharted 2 because it's THAT good to me, but what the heck would you know about great games! With an attitude like yours, it very likely you missed out on tons of great games, which is sad. BTW my first generatin FAtty BC Ps3 cost me $500 and it was the beest investment in Electronics I have ever made, that and my 56" 1080P tv, 7.1 Onkyo surround sound. No holes in my pocket yet.
i guess the same could be asked about heavenly sword and GT5P and GoW 1&2. GT5P ($45)= was a demo heavenly sword($60)= same game lenth as ODST. GoW1&2($45) = most people already own the ps2 versions. and since the ps3 doesn't play ps2 games. you have to rebuy it again just to play it on the ps3.
I mean, yeah, it's cheaper because of a "special deal" but the price didn't fall anywhere! It's still $60 at some places, and still worth it.
@ sakking well you ever shut up dude seriously i have another opinion uncharted 2 for campaign wise deserves anything but ONLINE WAS TERRIBLE i have no idea why you guys praise the game for it's graphics yea it's beautiful but i was not as amazed as KZ2. what really makes a game is the fun and replay value. and have guys ever heard of a little game called crysis you guys never mention that at ALL. but yea this is a steel :)
Online is pretty much fun, stable it stays online without lagging or glitches. You pretty much don't go into detail why it's even terrible, most likely you don't have the game or can't really explain why you feel that way.
You probably just suck online :) I'm calling you out sucka! haha
rocks,the money system rock,there are a lot perks,there's no lag this game mixes gears style+platforming,it really is refreshing
kills man. Please think about what you are writing and edit.
Lol you mean killswitch right? The game is nowhere near gears in gameplay except that they were Third person shooters.
oh and sully is beast smoke that Cuban cigar :)
Are the sales that bad? Should be selling more with the reviews imo
about your opinion. no sales arnt bad. it did pretty good selling over a million
Yeah I guess, seems they want more though.
The article only mentions a $10 price cut at Amazon. I honestly do not see how that means bad sells. Sweet Jesus your logic baffles me sometimes.
but ND made it perfectly clear they just wanted the game to sell 2.5M and seeing it sold 1M in like 3 weeks or something like that i dont think that 2.5 is a problem at all so i really dont know why they slashed it it was doin fine according to sales figures???
they want you to shut up :D if your that stupid that you cant even figure that out
You brought a hoar to church? Yeah, why not? That and I hate clowns. Best lines. Confirmed.
its hooker, not whore/hoar
or there would be cries of desperation around here....
Since you came out from under the bridge, I thought I'd give you a little companionship. For the record, Amazon DID offer a similar deal for Halo 3: ODST (I am a frugal gamer, so I always check prices), and the price has been fluctuating ever since its release. Uncharted 2 still remains as one of the top sellers, so it isn't an issue of lack of sell-through, it's just common business practice for Amazon to stay ahead of the competition. They do it with most, if not all, new releases, which is why 99% of the time I shop Amazon. The more you know. <NBC Public Service Announcement Chime>
dear HD gamer of course i have the game add me ( xXW4R_M4CHINEXx9) and look at my trophies. i did not love the multilayer since the weapon system is awful everyone uses the darn grenade launcher. the level designs suck. the cover system sucks. there really is no use for climbing walls as the really don't have any spots at all. it gets really boring as the ranking system is not rewarding. to tell you the truth my first day with the game i switched it out and put oblivion. and ever since last week when i beat it i never put it back in. killzone 2 and guerrilla deserves that GOTY as multiplayer is insanely awesome and fun along with a good campaign. to tell you the truth killzone 2 looks much better than uncharted 2. this is my opinion
1. weapon system terrible why because your character can only carry 2 guns just like cod4, halo 3/odst, resistance, killzone 2 and about every other shooter. maybe you find switching guns hard? no that can't be it because it is as simple as pressing left or right on the d pad. so what is wrong with the weapon system? 2.everyone uses the grenade launcher....hmmm that would be hard to do since there is only one on the maps that have one kinda like how the rockets are in halo 3. 3.level design sucks yeah i guess when your only use to flat boring maps like in gears the transition can be hard. 4.cover system sucks lol cliffy b doesn't think so that is why he copied it. 5.no use for climbing let me think for 2 seconds some possible uses for climbing snipers could use it to see better, when playing gold rush/survival you can climb to avoid the enemy rush, drop grenades on unsuspecting people hiding behind a wall yeah seems to have plenty of uses. 6.you need to lvl up to unlock everything so ranking up is rewarding
wow nine peeps disagreed but at least i respect you guys i voice my opinion you voice yours :) fair enough
