If it's impossible to compete numbers-wise, it's important to offer something original in comparison.
After admitting Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception has no chance of competing with the likes of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 in the multiplayer numbers category (i.e., sheer number of players), Naughty Dog designer Robert Cogburn says the team is still shooting big, and seeks to offer gamers something "they can't get anywhere else."
"In terms of what we’re doing, I think Naughty Dog is bringing the kind of experience that you will not get anywhere else on the market right now. In our multiplayer experiences, it’s super quick, you can do all sorts of crazy stuff you can’t do in other games.
You can play multiple play styles, and we have these massive set pieces that you can’t get anywhere else. No other multiplayer title lets you jump from truck to truck while attacking a flying airplane."
Cogburn conceded that the industry needs games like MW3 but at the same time, Uncharted 3 online will be a very different and even unique experience. Many of you have already sampled the multiplayer action in the beta, which continues on at this very minute. But get your fill now; it all stops on July 14.
