Uncharted disembarking November 20 for PS3

50°
362w ago - As the end-of-2007 game-release avalanche accelerates, some titles are getting out of its way. Last month, Grand Theft Auto IV and Too Human were officially delayed until 2008, and unconfirmed reports have Turning Point: Fall of Liberty and Mercenaries 2: World in Flames being pushed back to next year. Even Unreal Tournament 3's November launch window is looking less firm.

However, one game that definitely isn't getting delayed is Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. Sony reps have confirmed that the PlayStation 3-exclusive action adventure will ship in North America on November 20. That puts it in direct day-and-date competition with the Xbox 360-only role-playing game Mass Effect and possibly the multiplatform Rock Band as well. The game has a less firm "holiday" release for the UK and Europe.

Developed by Jak and Daxter creators Naughty Dog, Uncharted follows a treasure hunter who believes himself to be descended from the famous explorer Sir Francis Drake. To restore fame and fortune to his family's name, he sets about island-hopping in the Caribbean to find the fabled, gold-packed city of El Dorado. Complications ensue when his seaplane crashes and he finds himself stranded on a remote isle crawling with ruthless, heavily armed mercenaries.
 

BioShock 2 in 2009?

362w ago - Following its extremely positive reception, BioShock is being eyed as a major new franchise by 2K Games parent Take-Two - which is already talking sequels.

The publisher's recently spoke of the possibility of hitting "roughly" a new BioShock release every two years.

"I would say, probably, roughly an every-two-year schedule would be optimal. And if you look historically, that has been largely the case with GTA, and I'd expect we'd apply roughly the same strategy to BioShock because BioShock is shaping up to be a very important franchise," Take-Two chairman Strauss Zelnick said in a conference call with analysts.

362w ago - All things being well in the world of the PlayStation Store, you should now be able to download a demo of the PS3 version of Midway's Woo-'em-up Stranglehold.

In Stranglehold, in case you didn't know, you step into the shoes of Chow Yun-Fat as Inspector Tequila and shoot shit up while doing lots of slow-mo diving. And shooting. And diving. And shooting.

Midway says the demo "will allow players to get a taste of the intense, non-stop action, cinematic gunplay and massively destructible environments that their itchy trigger fingers have been waiting for."
 

Preview: NBA 08 for PS3

50°
362w ago - Amare Stoudemire, who will appear on the cover of the upcoming NBA 08, was at SCEA's San Diego headquarters on Sept. 7 to do some motion-capture work and take an early look at the new game.

After trading his bright-yellow Beatles t-shirt for a "dotted-up" mo-cap suit, Stoudemire took to the court and started firing free-throw line jump shots. The first few clanged hard off the rim, which Stoudemire attributed to the 10 a.m. start time. He eventually found his form, saying "Uh-oh" as he reeled off a few swishes in a row and warned that all Lakers fans should leave the room.

The Sony people told Stoudemire to pick one signature dunk, and he agonized over the choice, staring at the rim and rubbing his chin before deciding to go with a two-handed reverse. Later, he asked to give it another try, even asking if the rim could be lowered to eight feet to give the dunk extra power. After a couple big windmills, he was satisfied.

Later, Stoudemire sat down to give the game a try, leading his own Phoenix Suns against one of the game's designers, controlling the Seattle Sonics. He got into it, shouting, "There you go 'Trix! The Matrix!" after he guided Shawn Marion down the lane for a dunk, and, "Oh! Steve with the putback!" following a rare offensive rebound by Steve Nash. Virtual Amare scored...
