To keep that momentum going, as promised, we're making new DLC available for purchase every month until June 2013. This month we're recognizing Extraterrestrial Abductions Day - or a day around it anyway - by unveiling our Oddball themed character parts for your UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer characters.

Why Oddball? Well, these character parts defy classification as they don't quite fit among the numerous other parts we'll have coming out over the next few months, and Extraterrestrial Abductions Day is a bit of an odd holiday anyway. Here's a glimpse at some of the...

60w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill shared an interview with Naughty Dog today, who talks about their recent Uncharted 3 PS3 Multiplayer free-to-play decision.

To quote: Naughty Dog, purveyors of fine action-adventure games including the upcoming survival action game The Last of Us, made a bold move yesterday.

They decided to make the core multiplayer component of their most recent game, the globetrotting epic Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, free.

In a world of microtransactions and freemium stigmas, gamers naturally had questions about this decision. Why Free-to-Play? How will this affect the game's community?

We caught up with Uncharted 3 Game Director Justin Richmond, who gave us an inside look at the company's thought process behind giving away the core multiplayer mode of one of Naughty Dog's most popular games.
PlayStation.Blog: Why Free-to-Play? What opportunities does this model present that aren't there in the more traditional one?

"Free-To-Play takes away a huge barrier that exists for many players."
