  • Good work, cant go wrong with PS, always good games.

  • :)

    I can’t wait for it, first one is one of my favorite games ever

  • Great to have a PS3! I mean Uncharted 2, God of War III, Heavy Rain, White Knight Chronicles, Demon’s Souls, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2!

  • can we get a demo on PSN please?

  • congratz! day one for me as well.

  • man i would pre-order right now If I didn’t want to wait and see if there will be a collectors/special edition

  • Great job Naughty Dog! You guys rock hard.

  • A well deserved congrats to Naughty Dog.

  • Well deserved! Uncharted 2 was the most impressive game I saw at E3.

  • I feel so proud of you ND! Now seriously, you have done a great job being first-ever-first-party game for having so many rewards. For having so much rewards you should put something extra in the game!

    Or at least in the box.

  • uncharted 2 really deserves this, i liked uncharted 1 alot and i cant even imagine how great uncharted 2 is going to be, ND FTW!! (actually a can imagine how great its going to be lol)

  • So….


    All these awards plastered all over the box! On all the adverts, all over town, billboards, buses, tubes. EVERYWHERE! If I don’t see this game at least twice a day in Autumn Sony have failed you.


    PS Collector’s Edition much?

  • Please naughty dog can i get a code…PLEASE!!! with a cherry on top!!!!


  • WOW!!!

    Congrats…The beta is FUN the most fun I have had in an online multiplayer game.


  • Alright, nice work guys, looking forward to the big release!

  • ah man….5 days left….boo im just gonna have to wait i guess! :-(

  • Congratulations are in order. I love the beta and can not wait for the full game. Bravo!

  • The multiplayer is excellent and the single player is going to be fantastic. Keep it up. Insomniac take note with regards Resistance 3- HD Playstation 2 Graphics, questionable sound effects and cardboard weapons/ enemies does not make a good game. You have the basics, but the polish isn’t there. On saying that I can’t wait for Ratchet. Uncharted 2 is going to be fantabulous!!!

  • Before the PS3, I had never really paid attention to Naughty Dog (nor Insomniac for that matter) and focused on games by Japanese developers like Square, Konami, Capcom. This generation, Western developers like Naughty Dog are really raising the bar and have in my opinion risen and sometimes even surpassed the offerings of the old guard. Kudos, and keep up the good work.

  • Congratulations to all the Naughty Dogs working on this title and SCEA/SCE.

    However, we might expect a very good sequel. Because Uncharted 2 didn’t allow God of War III to win any of the positions which they were competing for!
    Besides that, it has some crazy graphics and story mode that really got my attention to it.

  • Considering all jaws dropped at the E3 presentation, it’s no wonder to see Uncharted 2 take home the E3 gold from all press.

    I would like to see this release not be too close to Modern Warfare 2 or Assassin’s Creed 2.

    I want to see this wonderful title get as much attention as the AAA titles I just mentioned.

  • I hope this game sells millions, it deserves to.

  • heard it will be out on sept 29th.. is that true?

    uncharted is great game but this one will be better.

  • Is it UNCHARTED or Uncharted? I see both variations in the blog post…

  • most underated game of 2008. i hope it sells more than 4 million in the first month. great game

  • My only fear is that the multiplayer won’t be up to par with the single player. I have the beta and I think it needs more customizable features, but that may come with the retail version hopefully. Out of all the developers, I’d like to see a live chat with Naughty Dog over any other developer.

  • I hope it will turn into sells. I mean like 10M copies.

  • Congratulations Naughty Dog!

    Now if you can follow up with an early release to satisfy us fans and supporters!! ;-)

  • Congratulations ND! Well done.

  • DAMN, only 5 days :( forgot it was really limited :(

  • I know I’m late, but I want to say congrats to the hard working ND for these awards. They sure as hell earned them, and I can’t wait to play their latest masterpiece this fall.

  • AWESOME!! NAuGhtY DOg FTW!!!!!!!

  • Oh yeah PS3 is the bomb lol

  • @69
    They were great last-gen too, look at Jak and Ratchet, or earlier for Crash and Spyro(original trilogies).

  • Naughty Dog deserves it. It truly blew me away when i saw Uncharted 2 at the conference and then when i played the multiplayer beta it was so fun.

  • Congratulation!!! you guys earn it! its an awesome game from an awesome developers and we cant wait to get our hands on the full version!

  • Great Job Naughty Dog. Any chance of getting a collector’s edition for U2?

    I’m really enjoying the Beta and have been posting my feedback. Please make chloe, elena, and Sully get wet when in water. It seems strange that only Drake can. I can’t believe it’s only 5 more days. :(

  • The Multiplayer Beta is great! I can’t wait for what the final game is going to look like. I seriously need to pre-order this.

  • My Biggest game of fall 2009, then Max Payne 3 and MW 2.

  • Alex_Assassin_08

    wait a second Sam…your display picture isn’t available on PSN!!!


    and props to Naughty Dog in general ^^

    best game ever? yes.

  • Nice 1440p screenshots:D

  • ps3 no doubt has the better list of games this and next year. however the price needs to drop so ps3 will have a stronger user base which will mean more non exclusive game purchases to the ps3 which is more $$$ to make up for the price drop. CMON SONY. i already have 1 but i hate how xbox360 game sales keep dominating.

  • Congratulations. A well deserved honor, the game looks phenomenal.

  • Congrats Naughty Dog!

  • I’AM SHOCKED !!!


  • Hey, I had a question I would love to get answered if it’s at all possible. I know you aren’t asking us to post questions for Naughty Dog, but it’s been bugging me since it was announced. Ahem, anyway, I wanna know if we’ll be seeing developer commentary or “The Making of” videos in Uncharted 2….I really enjoyed watching them in the first one =X

  • Nice. Love me some Uncharted.

    I do have a random question that very few gamers probably ask for. Will Uncharted 2 still give me various language options? As a Spanish speaker, I really enjoyed playing through the game with Spanish voice-over (I was curious). To my surprise, the transition to that language at least (as I can’t speak for the other languages that I don’t speak) was really, really good.

  • Uncharted 2 truly deserves this award. Man I can’t wait for this game to come out… System seller for sure!

  • Can’t wait!!! So many game and devices. I might replace my psp for the pspgo so i can get wifi easily and can store stuff.
