To quote: All of Naughty Dog has been looking forward to tonight ever since we announced Uncharted 3 with Entertainment Weekly and showed it for the first time at the SPIKE VGA show back in December.
And just a few minutes ago, if you were watching the SCEA Press Conference on any of the live streams, you go to see what we've been working so hard to be able to show you!
At the SCEA Press Conference, our Co-Presidents, Evan and Christophe, took the stage and with just a short intro, launched into the first live demo of Uncharted 3 ever shown publicly.

To quote: By now you've probably read the full details of what you'll get with UNCHARTED 3's upcoming multiplayer beta. Now, in our new video interview, Naughty Dog's top developers reveal just how deep this rabbit hole goes.
At a glance, UNCHARTED 3's most obvious multiplayer enhancement lies in its sweeping character customization options in the form of weapon loadouts, gun mods and a wide selection of ability-enhancing Boosters.
You'll be able to modify your character's appearance in almost every way, whether you want to slap some aviators on Nathan Drake or cobble together a custom hero or villain from scratch.
"There are hundreds and hundreds of parts and every part has a customizable color," Game Director Justin Richmond tells us. "You can look the way you want to look. We want it to feel personal."
