To quote: If you are going to PAX this weekend, I wanted to let you know that inFAMOUS 2 will have its very own booth space at the show!
Sucker Punch will be on hand and we'll have 7 kiosks featuring a demo of the game that will feature Cole's new melee weapon (the "Amp") and a new power called the Ionic Vortex.
Our booth number is #122 so swing on by to get your inFAMOUS destruction on! We'll also be giving away a limited number of t-shirts to players until we run out.
If that wasn't awesome enough news, the inFAMOUS 2 team will also be holding a panel on the topic of "Creating Super Powers" and showing some new gameplay featuring a power called the Kinetic Pulse, and a new enemy, the Ravager. Details are below, so hope to see you there!
180w ago - This weekend Arne announced that Naughty Dog is kicking off an Uncharted 2 PS3 multiplayer double cash holiday weekend!
To quote: "For the next 5 days, the per-match limit on earned cash will be $150,000. That's not a typo–we're running the Double Cash weekend a day longer than typical for a holiday weekend. Make the most of it!
It goes without saying that this is probably a good time to get a leg up on your run to hit level 80. I know I'll be checking into multiplayer to get a jump on gaining levels.
Double Cash Weekend:
Starts: Friday, July 2, 2010 at 10:00 AM PDT
Ends: Wednesday, July 7, 2010 at 10:00 AM PDT"
181w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Arne Meyer has announced that the Uncharted 2 'The Lab' PS3 Sniper Extermination gets underway this weekend.
To quote: If you aren't already planning on participating in the "The Lab" this weekend – or haven't in previous weekends – log in to UNCHARTED 2 multiplayer and check out the limited-time-only "The Lab" playlist in competitive matchmaking.
This weekend's episode of "The Lab" is Sniper Extermination. All players start with only Dragon Sniper rifles and there are no other weapons available on the map.
The goal of the game is similar to our Elimination gametype – once you or your opponent has been dispatched, you're out of the round until all opponents on either team are wiped out. The team with any or the most remaining players left alive wins that round.
Best of five rounds wins the entire match. No Boosters are active for Sniper Extermination, so high-level players and teams who have unlocked Situational Awareness won't be at an unfair advantage of those who haven't unlocked Evasion yet.
We'll be running Sniper Extermination on the following multiplayer maps:
• The Sanctuary
• The Train Wreck
• The Warzone The Plaza
• The Lost City
