When it comes to Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception , any and all info is welcome.

And a veritable treasure trove of info just came from a recent interview with Naughty Dog boss Christophe Balestra, as posted in the GameTrailers forums .

Firstly, we now have a confirmation of the multiplayer beta and a start date: July 7, with PlayStation Plus members getting into the action on June 28. You can nab a spot in that beta by purchasing inFamous 2 , by the way. Split-screen fun was also confirmed, and customization for multiplayer will be included; you'll be able to customize both your equipment and weapons. New modes like 3-team Deathmatch (2 on 2 on 2) are coming and oh yes, the ability to interact with enemies while hanging from ledges, which is just way cool.

Some of the details pertain to the single-player, too, like that part about dangling from ledges and tossing foes. Weapon customization is another feature that should be included in the campaign, and we remain a little hazy on that split-screen part…is it for the campaign or straight multiplayer? Well, we'll find out soon enough but the other information is good enough for now.

Called it! Yay! My Hero edition of i2 has got me covered ūüôā

They should put in the vertical ledge shooting abilities that Dark Void had. It would be perfect for Uncharted.

I don't think you'll have to twist my arm too much to purchase inFamous 2, but this is an awesome little perk!

Put up five bucks a week, and you'll have the cash. Amazon is your friend; make sure you order there.

I hope I can save up enough by then. Steam has been really taking a lot of my money lately with all those cheap deals.

It's only fitting to do this bundle type deal again. Considering they had the UC2 beta in, infamous. Anyways both games are on my purchase list, obviously. I actually didn't think ND would do a beta until later. Only cus considering there isn't much wrong with UC2. But betas are good, and doing them early, instead of a month before launch does two things. One, it actually give the developer time to iron out bugs. And two, it puts a downtime on the players between the beta close and release date, keeping fans interested.

On another note, I will be extremely frustrated if the campaign has split screen, even a co op mp campaign. Only because it's such a great, no the best single player campaigns I've played. I don't want that hindered in any way. But what they did in UC2 with the mp co op was awesome, I still wish we had more dlc for that. So that is welcome, it is alternate from the story yet familiar. Also no matter what they do to the mp to beef it up is great. I really like the 2 team deathmatch idea! That will be fun and interesting!

Well i guess i'll be in this beta, really have no choice

Also, interacting with enemies near the ledge is nothing new, i threw plenty of players over the edge playing multiplayer UC2 unless you mean something a bit different

This is smart marketing by Sony. You can also get into the R3 beta by purchasing Socom 4.

3 team deathmatch sounds interesting. Of course, I'll be unable to try it, but it's just different. And to all the people getting into the beta, congratulations. I just want the full games. Absolutely can't wait.
Peace.

i'm very excited for both games. i'm curious to see how uc3 will do sales wise. uc2 sales were very sluggish at first. it sold like 650,000 copies in oct alone, but that was kind of weak for one of the best reviewed games of this gen,

there are more ps3's out here now, and surely most ps3 owners are aware of this franchise. people need to make sure this is a day 1 purchase. uc3 sales will say a lot about how many hardcore gamers are left on the ps3.

what do you guys think? any predictions for uc3 sales the 1st month?

Lairfan

Dude, UC2 overall sold up to 5 million copies overall last I heard. It doesn't really matter how many it sells in the first couple of weeks for an exclusive, it just matters how well it holds up. And seeing what Uncharted 2 did, it held up very easily and even increased in sales over time.

As for UC3, I wouldn't expect it to be too high in sales in the first month. The Elder Scrolls V is coming out only 10 days after UC3, and I know a lot of gamers who are completely skipping on UC3 because they're Elder Scrolls crazed. I'm hoping it pulls another UC2, though, and keeps doing better and better over time.

Sounds freaking awesome. Somehow ND added things to the game I never thought they would need to add, yet somehow they appear to make the game even better. Just look at the numerous articles on all the multiplayer improvements, and the new multiplayer trailer.

UC3's shaping up to be another GotY at this rate, although it'll have steep competition this year (inFamous 2 anyone?).

Excelsior1

I know it went on to sale a lot of copies, but it did not even chart for the the first 20 weeks, people used its sales and kz2 as proof games do not do as good on the ps3. the only ps3 exclusive that really tore up the charts was gow3.

just wait until gears of war 3 drops. it will sell millions of copies in the first month. i want uc3 to do as well, we will see. i think sony has lost a lot of the hardcore gamers that make day1 purchases for whatever reasons. a triple a exclusive like uc3 should be able to sale millions in the 1st month. it's the sequel to 1 of the best reviewed games of all time. people should be lining up for it.
