has shared a video today unveiling some of the prizes from the Uncharted 2: Among Thieves San Francisco Cinema Event.
To quote: Last night, four Uncharted 2: Among Thieves cinema events simultaneously took place across the country, one of them on our very own home turf of San Francisco. It was a night packed full of fun, surprises, special guests and crazy excitement.
For starters, fans (100 of you, to be exact!) and media were greeted by UNCHARTED 2 on the big screen upon entering San Francisco's Landmark theater. From there, a brand new section of the game's single-player campaign (in the snowy Himalayas) was shown and introduced by Naughty Dog Creative Director Amy Hennig
, who then shocked the crowd by announcing that everyone would be going home with a copy of the game... eight days early!
Needless to say, the place erupted. Shortly after, we caught up with Amy about the whole experience.
From there, a multiplayer tournament kicked off on a never-been-played map, with a Fortune Hunter Edition up for grabs to the winner. Emotions ran high (take that, people trying to watch the French indie flick next door!) and we discovered that many of you have definitely been practicing MP in the recent demo.
All the action could be seen on the movie theater screen, running through Sony Electronics' 4K digital cinema technology, with Senior Vice President Mike Fidler on hand to tell us how the 4K projector is the perfect fit for big-screen gaming.
For all that and more, take the video for a spin. And thanks to everyone who made it out to San Francisco, Bellevue, Thousand Oaks and Rosemont. We surely hope the night was worth your while!
And in case you're wondering, tonight's October 6 event is completely sold out in all four locations!
