Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is almost here, with Sony confirming to Kotaku (linked above) today that the Naughty Dog developed PlayStation 3 game will arrive in the U.S. on October 13th.
To quote: Sony also released Uncharted 2's final box art, reminding us of Mr. Drake's expert ability to hang from ledges and platforms with just one hand.
Combine that with his expertise at maintaining a shirt that's half-tucked, half-not and you'll see why the stubbly treasure hunter's adventures warranted a sequel.
Oh, and speaking of pre-orders, Sony laid out its retailer plans for a quartet of downloadable exclusives with Amazon.com, GameStop, Game Crazy and BestBuy. Golden guns, right after this.
Yes, those are the golden Barettas that Drake can wield in multiplayer, adding a bit of flash to your online death match and "Plunder" competition. They're exclusive to BestBuy, meaning that if you're into sporting golden AK-47s, that should be your pre-order retailer of choice.
Other retailers are getting downloadable exclusive bonuses too, as follows:

To quote: Another surprisingly interesting portion of the interview came when Yamauchi was asked about Gran Turismo 1's development:
AW: How hard was it to make that first game?
KY: It took five years. In those five years, we could not see the end. I would wake up at work, go to sleep at work. It was getting cold, so I knew it must be winter. I estimate I was home only four days a year.
He also mentioned the original game was created by a staff of only 7 people!
