Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune Demo Back on the World Map!

50°
355w ago - Christophe Balestra, the Co-President Naughty Dog has posted up an update to the Uncharted demo region lock situation. He once again states that the locking was a mistake but the issue has now been fixed and a new demo has been posted of which the whole entire world can play and enjoy.

To quote: Christophe Balestra, here, and I'm Co-President at Naughty Dog. I wanted to give a final update on the Uncharted: Drake's Fortune demo situation.

We're really sorry about what happened and didn't anticipate this at all. We just didn't know people from other territories could connect to the US PLAYSTATION Network Store and download demos ... now we do! We've been too busy working on the game to wrap our head's around the infrastructure of the PSN.

We absolutely did not plan the demo to be region locked. As soon as we figured out the problem existed, Sam Thompson called me and I jumped into my car, drove to the office and fixed it right away. It's an honest mistake and we didn't try to prevent anybody from enjoying the Uncharted demo. I feel even more sorry because most of the people who experienced the problem are in Europe and I'm European myself.

So again, we're really sorry about what happened and it wasn't done on purpose. The good news is it's now...

Empire Earth III demo today!

50°
356w ago - Those of you eagerly awaiting Empire Earth III will be able to taste a mouthful of gameplay in a new demo today.

Simply pop over to the website here and then sit there patiently; the links are still greyed out like in that film Pleasantville, you see, and we expect they won't turn into color until the US wakes up a bit later today.

Empire Earth is a real-time strategy series from Mad Doc software that has come off worst in sales wars against titles Age of Empires and Rise of Nations in the past.

But the developer has acknowledged it was probably a bit fiddly and complicated and sought to rectify it all by overhauling the entire thing.

The biggest new addition is a world-domination game mode like you have seen in things like Total War - complete with settlement management, and it is also a much simpler and more accessible affair this time around.

It left us with a very positive feeling when we went to see it in October. Pop over to our Empire Earth III preview to find out more
 

Uncharted Demo Confirmed For Next Thursday, US Release Date Bumped Up

50°
356w ago - It's not often that we can jump up for joy, and say that we were right about something, but today, Amy Henning has confirmed our initial report regarding the Uncharted Demo on the Official Playstation blog. If you remember our previous story from last week, we unearthed a statement from Evan Wells, the co-president of Naughty Dog, stating that the demo for their upcoming game will probably hit PSN twelve days before the release of the game. We stood behind that report stating...

"As far as we are concerned, an Uncharted demo will be out 12 days before the American release...so in about 2 weeks! We can't wait to get on down with Nathan Drake (uh, perhaps the wrong choice of words) on November 8th (at least on the US Playstation Store). Exciting stuff aye?"

Amy Henning, Gaming Director at Naughty Dog, replied to a poster on the Official Playstation blog stating the official release date of the demo...

"Hi Kittonwy – the demo will go live on the PSN next Thursday, November 8th."

Well, as it turns out, the date we stated, wasn't just close, it was right on the money! The Uncharted demo will grace your Playstation 3 on November 8th.

In terms of details, all we know about the demo at this point, is that it will start with Drake and Elena parachuting out of...
 

PSP Preview- God of War: Chains of Olympus Demo

50°
357w ago - When I got home from work today I found a small package waiting for me on my doorstep courtesy of Playstation Underground. In it was a PSP demo for God of War: Chains of Olympus. They also thoughtfully included a chain with the God of War Omega symbol.

So I popped the demo into my PSP and started it up. On the main screen you have three options: Start Demo, Options, and Treasures. Under options you can adjust music and sound volume and view the controller layout- nothing out of the ordinary.

Under treasures, there are 5 spots. The first one says Attica Walkthrough, which is an overview of the first level (playable in the demo) and explained by one of the game directors. The other four spots just say Locked.

When you start the demo you are instantly thrown into battle and the game gives you simple control instructions (square for light attack, triangle for heavy attack, and circle for a grab attack). If you've ever played God of War on the PS2 then you will find that the PSP version plays the same way. You will also notice that there is as much detail in the PSP version as there was in the PS2 version.

These were both things that were talked about a little while back when the game developers talked with Playstation Underground members. They pointed out that their goal with the...
