  • why the hell should i have to buy the game in order to be eligible for the contest? that doesn’t make any sense.

  • “..open only to legal residents of the fifty United States and the District of Columbia,”

    Well, I’m out.

  • @22

    It’s well beyond stale.

    Sony is beating the stain on the ground where the dead horse used to be.

    I will be even more disappointed if they pull this type of stunt for our competition, providing they even bother to do one at all.

  • Post the winners that won in the demo contest.

  • First. Uncharted is an AMAZING game. Congratulations to Naughty Dog for another excellent game. Second. I am disappointed with SONY’s treatment of PS fans in Canada. I have been a loyal PS owner for well over a decade. I own all 4 consoles, over a hundred games (most of which are PS Exclusives) and I still do not have a chance to enter contests, or have a video store on my PS3. Sad.

  • Why do you guys keep doing this? US has had many chances already to win this edition, why can’t we Canadians or even Europeans may enter? This is without doubt unfair.

  • Toysrus online had it back ordered on day one. I ordered several days before too. What a letdown.

  • So, you gotta already own a copy of the game in order to win a copy of the game. I’m sure there’s a punchline there somewhere but I’m just not seeing it.

  • “The approximate retail value (“ARV”) of the prize is $300.00.” dang

  • I keep hearing that us Canadian should “stay tuned” for details on contests that we can enter. I hope Naughty Dog and Sony don’t forget about us.

  • been playing the multi this week already. love it! man, i hope i win. i really want that sweet dagger. D:

  • Damn is there no way us Aussie’s can get this?

  • I’m so ridiculously impressed by this game.

  • Who won from the first batch? Nothing was announced…

  • what are the chances of getting that user guide in australia?
    that would really come in handy, those treasures are bloody hard to find.
    and im going to need all the help i can get to finish the game on crushing.

  • Wow still no canada, canada is left out of so much things, im sick of sony, there are fans out side of the US and they dont care about them, im begging to not give a rats ass about sony, all i like is there ps3 system and some of there exclusives.

    The company is just to damn unfair to other fans, and they probably dont give a damn about us from other countries.

  • So wait, we are, in a sense, actually going to be killing for this game? Consider me intrigued :P

  • Fortune Hunter Edition is pretty sweet, I’ll most likely be on this weekend :) Looking forward to it haha.

  • Wish I had the money for this game. Good luck to those who enter.

  • Sounds awesome! I’ll be on after I get off work! Look for Platinum_Parker!

  • @51

    You could resell the Fortune Edition on Ebay for big bucks or keep it for collector purposes.

  • @45

    i agree with you, i liked the contest for beta better cause no one had the game. Now that everyone has the game it really doesn’t make sense for them to get an extra chance to win it. While those of us without the game have no chance to win it.

  • So, let me get this straight… In order to win a free copy of Uncharted 2…I’d have to BUY Uncharted 2? Self defeating, much? I got boned out of the Multiplayer demo because I couldn’t get my online to work, I got shafted (and yes, that will be the last time I will use those types of metaphors…) out of the sneak peek events because I was born in (and live on) the wrong part of the United States (New York) and now this? Thanks for nothing…

  • @64

    The winners will be announced on October 19th through October 30th.

  • What ever happened to the Contest with the demo? Winners announced yet?

  • Do you realize how stupid this contest is?

  • What still no Canada?!?

  • could you please explain why the amazon treasure map was only 6 treasures?

  • So far I’ve taken just about every chance to win one of these bad boys, and still no luck :( Hopefully this one grants me the prize. as they say “Fortune favors the bold.”

  • The game is BEYOND INCREDIBLE!. I bought it day 1 and am Loving Every Minute of playing it. Thank you Naughty Dog!

    I just cant understand why SONY is not advertising it enough. I see Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 commercials all the time but NOT ONE for Uncharted 2. Why???

    Uncharted 2 could sell 1 million copies its first week and 2 million its first month if Sony put the money into advertising that it SHOULD. If Microsoft or Nintendo had a game of this quality and depth they would be advertising and marketing the HECK out of it. It KILLS ME that Sony does not do the same!!!

    Where is the Uncahrted2 PS3 bundle? Where are the commercials? Where are the collectible figurines and such? Where is the comic book? Where is the Collector’s or Limited edition with extras? That is the version i wanted to buy. Where were the midnight launch events? Why aren’t they getting the word out on this AMAZING GAME!

    Sony is failing us by dropping the ball on marketing. The game has the goods so why not put the money into telling everyone!

  • What the hell? So you’re rewarding people who’ve already bought the game, with another copy of the game? That makes a load of sense :/

    Why not have given some of these away randomly to people who’ve gotten 100% on the Uncharted 1 trophies or something?

    • This is far more than the just winning only the game, that\’s almost the most minor thing into what makes the Fortune Hunter Edition special — it\’s about the case, the art book and the dagger. Are you saying that anything beyond the game itself isn\’t desirable?

  • hey all you suckers who don’t have uncharted 2 yet and want to try and win one of these? tough cookies lol go buy the game. well cya.

    that’s you, to me, just now

  • i really wish i could “give in” as you put it and buy a copy of Uncharted 2 so i can be eligible to win the FORTUNE Hunter Edition. Unfortunately, i am broke and cannot buy one even if i wanted to. Why do we need to have a the full game to win the full game? if i had the standard edition i would have not have even bothered with the FHE! this makes no sense! i wish you guys have found another way for me to win the FHE other than have a game i cannot buy. at least Game Informer is having a FHE Sweepstakes that i have the ability to enter!

  • Argh! This is so frustrating! I can’t believe how friggin difficult it is to knab one of these. I’m entirely convinced this is impossible. The saying “nothing is impossible” is croc. And I was never on the verge of winning it if I’d tried just one more time. Even God doesn’t see fit to let the odds tip on my favor to bless me with such glory. I’m not good enough I guess.

    In the end, whoever wins this, you’re a lucky individual and to sell something like this, would be completely and totally insane. Eh… I was loser from birth and I’ll be a loser until death.

    Still, if you don’t have this game, you ought to be hit on the head with a tack hammer and have your brains dashed out with a fork or you’d better get to the store immediately and buy this. If your excuse is that you don’t have a PS3, then that doesn’t work either. There was a price drop, this is not the stone age and you need a job. GO BUY A PS3 and Uncharted 2. NOW!

    I just finished it. Stunning graphics, musical score and immersive story with excellent character development make this the game you’ve been waiting for your whole life. GOTY!

  • I’d just like to add, that I’m convinced so many games delayed until 2010 because they knew what they were going up against when they saw Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. They wanted a shot at Game of the Year, and it just wasn’t possible against Uncharted 2.

  • yeah another chance il try my best

  • @ NeoMahi

    the reason devs chose to delay their games until 2010 was because of MW2 and not Uncharted 2 (not saying that Uncharted 2 sucks cuz it doesn’t). the reason i know this is did you see the number of preorders ofr MW2, my store has over 600 reservation, JUST ONE STORE!

  • “If you haven’t bought UNCHARTED 2 yet (is there someone who hasn’t?) and want one of our extremely limited edition Fortune Hunter Editions, then this may be a pretty good reason to give in.”

    Ok, so how the hell should some one be able to go online on Uncharted 2 without having the game?

  • i wish i could buy it but i cant find any where close to buy it cause my stores are stupid and i dont feel like waiting or it in the mail,my mom wont drive to a mall at a game stop to get it…*sigh*

  • Dear Naughty Dog,

    What is the point of giving away a copy of the game to people who already own the game? Shouldn’t you be giving copies away to potential fans?

    Oh, hey, like me! I don’t have a copy of Uncharted 2, and I’d even take the regular, old ‘Normal Guy’ edition, without the fancy dagger.

    If I told you that my car broke down on the way to the Lincoln Square event, would you take pity upon me?

    No? Okay. :(

  • Noooooooooooooooooo!

    I sent my PS3 for service. I won’t have it for at least two weeks. I already have Uncharted 2 but I can’t play.

    At least, this contest is still not open to Canada. I really hope to have my PS3 back when Canada can win the Fortune Hunter Edition!

  • Hey,I’m live in Puerto Rico… that is a US territory. I can’t participate?

  • Seriously, when are things like this going to be arranged for players in Canada? We’re part of the same territory but always get shafted out because of the “void outside of the US”. Couldn’t you arrange things with Sony’s Canadian division to work together on these and have a Canadian winner as well?

  • i want the “Normal Guy” edition!
    but seriously, a contest for people who have the copy? like was stated before, cater to the fans that don’t have the game! that’s the point of a collector’s edition! i don’t go in the store and buy a regular edition then buy the collector’s edition later on, IT MAKES NO SENSE!

  • This is insanity — buy the game for a chance to win a special edition of the game. People who DON’T have the game are the ones that need to win it, guys!

    I’ll pick up Uncharted 2 at some point and I’m not banking on a contest to make that happen, but seriously, guys, where is the logic here? It’s robbing Peter to pay Paul.

  • uncharted 2 is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Was reading this, and I guess I’m part of that someone who hasn’t gotten it yet…Were the winners announced for the Multiplayer Demo yet?

  • It’s heartbreaking that these are only for US residents.

    My (UK) copy arrived this morning so I finally get to play it, but still I would have happily paid £100 for this Fortune Hunters edition despite being short on cash.

    :(

  • Still…. no….. Canada?
