Uncharted 2 for PS3 to Include Multiplayer, Beta Starts June 3rd

100°
282w ago - Today Naughty God Co-President Evan Wells announced the following news via PlayStation Blog:

So the rumors are true and we can finally talk about it! As you've heard and read, UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves will have both competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes.

We managed to keep the secret completely safe for over a year and a half, but right in the home stretch before the embargo lifted today, word got out all over the internet. Of course the leaked info was only the tip of the iceberg and there is a ton of coverage being released today on dozens and dozens of Web sites.

Check out a multiplayer trailer we just finished before the weekend.





So, pick your favorite videogame news site and go check out the coverage from our event last week. If print magazines are your thing, we've gotten word that we'll also be in more than a few magazines around the world in the next few weeks.

If you've been looking closely at our interviews, our team here at [Register or Login to view links] has been growing rapidly and we now have quite a few more Dogs on staff than when work finished on UNCHARTED: Drake's Fortune.

Bushing Reports on Returning Modified Wii Consoles for Repair

400°
283w ago - It seems that Nintendo is now charging almost to full price for a Nintendo Wii if you've installed unsigned code on the machine that resulted in a 'bricked' console.

To quote: I've been asked whether installing the Homebrew Channel (or Twilight Hack or whatever) will void the warranty on a Wii. I've generally said something like "Technically, yes, but I doubt they will enforce that."

This seemed reasonable, given some of the anecdotes I've heard – stories of people ruining their drives with a soldering iron and still getting free repair work done under warranty, etc. I've also said that if a Wii is bricked (and won't boot), then they have no way of actually checking to see what is installed on the Wii – and I still believe that to be true, at least most of the time.

I'll be the first to admit that was wrong, given some recent evidence. My German's pretty bad, but I see ".... Softwarehack ... EUR 210″. That seems awfully excessive, given that the price of a new Wii is EUR 250, no?

I would write this off as an isolated incident – maybe someone installed some truly awful warezloading hack. However, I was sent the following email through an anonymous remailer last month, and it would seem to support the invoice above:

283w ago - Here we go, from PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star via PlayStation Blog today:

The day has finally come! Phase one of the EA SPORTS Complex has been unleashed and it is high time that all of you sports fanatics log in to PlayStation Home, explore this hugely interactive space, try your hand at the available mini-games, and check out all the teasers and trailers that await your prying eyes.

Out of the proverbial box, [Register or Login to view links] has two casual multiplayer mini-games for you to challenge your friends to: A whole floor of poker tables and the new EA SPORTS Racing game.





The former allows for up to 8 players per table to indulge in high stakes tournament-style Texas Hold 'Em and the latter lets you put the pedal to the metal and compete for the best time against 3 other users in a formula-style race.

The Complex - much like the PlayStation Home platform - will evolve over time. Currently scheduled updates include the EA SPORTS Golf mini-game (where users can test their stick skills at an indoor driving range) leaderboards, poker bracelets and a rewards system. As new titles are announced, content within the space and additional game-specific achievement rewards will be added.
