Uncharted: The El Dorado Megamix

65 0

Hi Everyone,

First off, sorry for the confusion on the demo, we were trying to move quickly to get you guys updates, and unfortunately there were some miscommunications on our side of the fence. In the future, instead of reacting too quickly, we will be sure to communicate with you in a timely fashion with the most accurate information possible.

Now that hopefully we’re back on your good side, I wanted to point out two great stories I read the other day from our friends over at Kotaku and PlayStation Universe. Both stories are very complimentary, and discuss the Uncharted Press Kit and its contents in detail. I noticed the story generated a lot of questions in the forums regarding DJ Shadow‘s contributions to Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune and the track’s availability, so I wanted to take a moment to share some additional information regarding those two items.

When we set out to create a soundtrack for Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, we knew we wanted to include a remix on the soundtrack, but at that time we were still unsure which direction we wanted to go creatively. In the days and discussions that followed, we tossed around a number of musicians, with one name remaining at the top of our list throughout the entire process – Josh Davis a.k.a. DJ Shadow. Josh is extremely well known for his work as an unbelievable musician, producer and DJ, but he is also an insanely gifted collaborator who has worked with an amazing number of talented artists throughout his career (Cut Chemist, Radiohead, Mos Def, Keane, and Kool Keith just to name a few). Needless to say, it was very apparent to us early on that he would be a perfect fit to create a remix from the incredible work of our composer Greg Edmonson.

But enough of my rambling, as a make-good on our demo issue, we wanted to give you the opportunity to listen to the track and let us know what you think (I hope you like it as much as we do):

  • It makes sense that it’s going to be on Itunes. It would sell a lot less if it was only on PSN. Compair the numbers.

  • I was unfortunate enough to look at the press kits Sony sent out. Only one comment, why Sony? WHY?

    I would seriously pay top dollar for that kind of stuff in a Special Edition, espically since this game is shaping up to be my favourite of all time. I know it must be too late to make a Special Edition, but please remember it for the next game :)

    Gaming Magazines are definately not worthy of Release kits made of such a massive amount of awesome.

  • cool mix! you rock naughty dog and sony! im buying this game when it comes out, no doubt about it! im a jak and daxter fan and now im gonna be an uncharted fan. haha keep up it up you guys! :) you have our support

  • First off – the DJ Shadow track is pretty cool.

    Second, is there going to be a physical release of the soundtrack or iTunes only?

    Because:

    A) Given your track record with the demo, I’m willing to bet it will *only* be on the U.S. iTunes.

    B) Those of us who don’t use iTunes might like a copy.

    If you’re not willing to release a non-iTunes version of the soundtrack, it will be *your* fault when I pirate it.

  • Holy crap thats awesome. Loving it!

  • Nice music, I like it alot. I was very, very pleased with the demo, graphics, gameplay are all top notch. I cant wait for the final game.
    The Insomniac Games podcast is my favorite podcast ever, there hilarious and really well done.
    Also with Assassins Creed dive bombing ( IGN review) =( I think this game will get even more attention then it all ready will get. Lets hope for a good review, ill buy it regardless , and i know you guys will deliver. Thanks again.

  • Aloha…

    That is a really great REMIX, thanks.

    Please count my vote for making the full soundtrack available as a PSN download with (possibly) some bonus tracks only available to the PS3 community. :)

    Maybe a “play-along” commentary similar to what Battlestar Galactica did with their podcast episodes.

    Thanks Again…..peace.
