Naughty Dog Wishes PS3 Fans a Very Happy New Year 2010

350°
236w ago - This weekend Naughty Dog's Senior Manager of Marketing Communications Arne Meyer has sent Happy New Year 2010 wishes to PS3 fans.

To quote: All of us at Naughty Dog wanted to wish everyone a Happy Holidays and a very Happy New Year!

2009 has been both incredibly busy AND amazing year for us on all counts. We started the year off working hard on UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves and we had no idea what was going to be in store for us and for our fans as the year progressed.

We had our heads down for most of the year making sure we put together an awesome game that we think you would like, but when E3 came around, we took a moment to stop and realize that things were really coming together as UNCHARTED 2 picked up over 20 awards when all was said and done.

It's safe to say we were stoked to get this recognition and it made us kick things up a notch over the next several months as we were putting the finishing touches on our game. When we released UNCHARTED 2 in October to critical acclaim, we were looking forward to hearing what all of our fans thought on [Register or Login to view links], the PlayStation forums, Twitter and anywhere else on the Internet you discussed our game.

Now, we're wrapping up the year watching our game win Game of the Year...

238w ago - Today Naughty Dog Co-President Evan Wells has shared his experience from this year's VGAs, where Uncharted 2 for PS3 won Game of the Year, as follows:

So the [Register or Login to view links] Video Game Awards were this Saturday, and in case you hadn't heard, UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves walked away with [Register or Login to view links]!

It's a huge honor and the team is still basking in the glow of that moment. While it's still fresh in my mind, I wanted to share a little behind the scenes recap of how it all went down.

I arrived at the show with Christophe, Amy and Bruce and we walked the red carpet, which was a pretty cool way to start the evening off. There were tons of media lined up with cameras and microphones ready for interviews. We stopped for a few interviews and Christophe even played a game of Wii Resort Table Tennis against one of our interviewers (he let her win... so he says).

Continuing down the carpet, we ran into a bunch of people arriving at the same time as us like Marty O'Donnell from [Register or Login to view links] (who walked away with the award for Best Score for Halo: ODST... congrats!), our friends from [Register or Login to view links]
