138w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Arne Meyer has confirmed today that the Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Game of the Year (GOTY) Edition is coming on October 12, 2010.
To quote: It's hard to believe it's been nearly a whole year since UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves was released!
Since then we've sold over 3.8 million copies worldwide of UNCHARTED 2, hosted more than 125 million online multiplayer matches and won more Game of the Year Awards than we know what do with.
Not exactly a bad problem to have. To commemorate UNCHARTED 2 as the definitive Game of the Year in 2009, we're proud to reveal the UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Game of the Year Edition!
On October 12, 2010, copies of UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Game of the Year Edition will start hitting retailers all over North America. For just $49.99, you'll get the regular retail Blu-ray of UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves along with a "super voucher" for the PlayStation Network Store that lets you download ALL of the following DLC content:
• PlayStation Heroes Skin Pack
• UNCHARTED: Drake's Fortune Multiplayer Pack
• UNCHARTED 2 Siege Expansion Pack
• Currency Multiplier which grants Double XP up to level 10 in Multiplayer
• Golden Guns option for the AK-47 and the 92FS 9mm...
156w ago - Today NaughtyDog has announced that new Uncharted 2: Among Thieves PSN Avatars will be released on the US PlayStation Store tomorrow for $0.49 each or $1.49 for five.
Pricing for other stores have not yet been announced, however, it is expected to be similar.
To quote: "Not too long ago we submitted a set of PSN Avatars to supplement the few existing UNCHARTED ones that have been available for quite some time.
We've just gotten word that the first of hopefully several sets of PSN Avatars has been approved for deployment on the PSN Store on Tuesday, May 25.
The PSN Avatars were created from renders we made from UNCHARTED 2 and include Nathan Drake, Elena Fisher, Victor Sullivan, Chloe Frazer, Jeff, Tenzin, Karl Schafer, Zoran Lazarevic, Harry Flynn, and an image of the Phurba dagger.
The Avatars will be available for $0.49 each or in two bundles of 5 Avatars for $1.49 per bundle. The bundle options that the PSN Team has created turns out to be a pretty good deal, adding up to a savings of nearly $1 compared to purchasing 5 avatars separately.
I only have US pricing at the moment, but the pricing in other regions will be similar to that of existing Avatars already available on the PSN Store."
