We've seen connections between video games and social networking sites before, but Naughty Dog will take that to a whole new level in Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception .
It seems the developer will directly implement Facebook and YouTube features in their upcoming masterpiece: at the start menu, players can view a "feed" that shows all their Facebook friends on the PlayStation Network, and we'll know if they've posted videos or updates. Said Christophe Balestra, Naughty Dog co-founder:
"I don't think anyone else has gone to that level to bring Facebook within the game. People usually do it the other way around. We are the first ones who are doing this."
Balestra goes on to say that they want you to interact with your Facebook friends often, much in the same way you'd interact with your PSN friends. "You can talk to them and you can invite them to your party," Balestra said. Players can even post videos of multiplayer matches provided those vids are under 90 seconds. Each multiplayer session is stored on the hard drive of the PS3, and you can go into a video file and direct the scene however you see fit. You can add voice to a character, move the camera around, and share the video so a friend can assist in the editing.
The direct link for uploading videos to YouTube is dynamic and unique, and the best uploaded videos might even end up on "Uncharted TV," which will be playing in the bottom right corner of the menu. …Naughty goes all out, don't they?
