The Uncharted 3 hype train has officially left the station and there’s no stopping it now. This year’s Spike Video Game Awards ended the night with the ultimate closure with the full reveal of the Uncharted 3’s announcement trailer, concluding an epic evening of mouth watering trailers for Mass Effect 3, Resistance 3 and Kratos entering the realm of Outworld seeking Mortal Kombat with a triumphant (and augmented) bang. Let’s continue the weekend with more reveals and video game celebration, shall we?


Its the season for ice cold weather and for the PlayStation Network to take center stage with digital releases like, LittleBigPlanet: Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves, X-Men: The Arcade Game and EA’s sandbox superhero title, Prototype. Stack up on your digital PSN simoleons and ring in the digital age with this week’s The Drop.

Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves

PlayStation Network

LittleBigPlanet: Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves — A stand-alone LittleBigPlanet mini-game available through PlayStation Network and designed around the PlayStation Move controller, Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves lets gamers use the Move to get Sackboy through 10 levels dominated by dinosaurs, where the Evil Big Rex is king.

The player with the PlayStation Move controller leads the charge, flicking switches and triggering platforms to help the other players, using DualShock Controllers, through each level. Leap between Dino heads, use the Move controller to blast aside crates of bubbles, ride dinosaurs through prehistoric cities, and take to the heights of tree canopies—then team up to defeat Big Rex, all while collecting Trophies along the way.

Prototype — Players take control of Alex Mercer – a dark, genetically mutated shape-shifter with no memory of his past, hell-bent on solving the mystery of his existence as he tears through a densely populated New York City moving with Parkour-style fluidity and consuming anything that gets in his way.

X-Men: The Arcade Game — Wolverine, Storm, Cyclops, Dazzler, Colossus and Nightcrawler must battle through Brotherhood of Evil Mutants in this action-packed beat ’em up based on the comic book franchise. For the first time ever, the arcade action comes home in a complete reproduction of the original hit! The double-screen action has been conformed for more modern widescreen HDTVs, allowing all six mutant heroes to be on-screen at one time.

Prince Of Persia: Warrior Within — Hunted by Dahaka, an immortal incarnation of Fate seeking divine retribution, the Prince embarks upon a path of both carnage and mystery to defy his preordained death. His journey leads to the infernal core of a cursed island stronghold harboring mankind’s greatest fears. Only through grim resolve, bitter defiance and the mastery of deadly new combat arts can the Prince rise to a new level of warriorship — and emerge from this ultimate trial with his life.

Marvel Pinball PS3: Wolverine

Marvel Pinball — Join Spider-Man, Wolverine, Iron Man, and Blade on four pinball tables powered by the dazzling Pinball FX 2 engine. Use your pinball wizardry to save the world from the most notorious super villains, and relive the greatest moments of the classic Marvel Universe in an epic pinball adventure!

PSone Classics – Japan Imports

Galaxy Fight — Number of legends exist throughout the planets of our galaxy that say the Divine Being appears once every millennium. The time is upon us now, and many have converged on the Denius system to greet the Divine Being. Without this god of legend, all is dark and empty. His name is Felden Crais and he knows only one way of doing things. He is neither benevolent nor malevolent, but his power is omnipotent. No one mortal being is more powerful than he.

PlayStation minis

I Must Run! — I Must Run is the skill-based action running game. Jump over gaps in prison buildings, run through an underground station and test your reflexes in a deadly run over construction yard cranes. Reach the city center and save your wife. Remember, you have only 24 hours. You must run!

  • Sup Rey? Where’s the PS3 reveal? And first!

  • Yeah, what’s PS3’s exclusive reveal?

  • Nice drop, do you know what happened to the exclusive ps3 title that was supposed to be announced today?

  • I heard there’d be a PS3 reveal today, so where’s it?

  • R3, KZ3, U3
    That is all!

  • Hey Rey, do you happen to know when Pac-Man Championship Edition will hit PSN? I’m talking about the PSP Minis version, not DX.

  • Alot of people are saying the reveal was uncharted 3, I was hoping for Starhawk!

  • By the way, whats the Sunday reveal?

  • Please tell this wasn’t the reveal. If it was i think i might sell my ps3. I mean c’mon really if Sony made a big spectacle about this. This is really frustrating

  • Prehistoric moves looks fun. Is the reveal Sly 4? I miss that game.

  • Where is the reveal????? Was it Uncharted 3????? Just let us know!!!

  • I think I’m with everyone else wondering what that PS3 reveal is… I’m hoping it’s posted on the blog pretty soon! A lot of people are getting super hyped, and the longer we wait, the higher our hopes get.

    Either way, I’m excited! lol

    And, as always, I love The Drop for this week!

  • The reveal? I am wondering too… :O

  • so Rey whats the reveal ? i think we all wanna know

  • I think they should have some sort of Blog post at least explaining what the reveal is… if there is anything beyond further Uncharted 3 info. We need some sort of clarification. Sure, a lot of the hype is just people wildly speculating and getting themselves and those around them excited, but we still would all love to know what the actual reveal was.

  • I really love the Uncharted series, but I was really hoping Sly 4 would be OFFICIALLY announced.

  • btw i cant wait to play LBP2, Killzone 3 , Motorstorm Apocalypse in the next three months!!!!

  • Sly 4 :(

  • @14: Yes we do. We ALL do.

  • @13 me too!

  • For everyone asking, yes, the PS3 reveal was UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception. Arne Meyer already wrote that on the blog yesterday that they have a press conference in Los Angeles with selected journalists and that we would start seeing info next week on websites and also in print magazines.

  • looks like a sad update for this week.

  • I think the reveal was Uncharted 3…well if it was then i think Sony is kinda confused on how the words “after” and “before” differs since they said the reveal will be after the vga awards and it will be on december 12 and uncharted 3 was revealed even BEFORE the VGAs.

    IDK and i really want to know haha. If it was U3 then just tell everyone it was uncharted 3, i don’t think it’s that hard.(its way past the announced time the reveal was supposed to be revealed so i think we gamers are kinda frustrated now).

  • gah ! you people are evil !! i will always be broke thanks to you ): lol , nice drop

  • Where’s my Hot Shots Golf 6 Sony? :(

  • jvm won’t be pleased.

  • @21: I sincerely hope that’s not true. I REALLY love the Uncharted series, but I REEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAALLLLLY wanted Sly 4.

  • In Arne Meyer’s own words:

    “We’re hosting a bunch of journalists tomorrow in Los Angeles to discuss our game and show them a bit more than you’ve been able to see so far. You’ll be reading (and seeing) about what we presented to them over the next few weeks in your favorite online web sites and print magazines around the world.”

  • @21

    I’d like to see some sort of official blog post stating that that indeed was the reveal.

    The word “reveal” sort of signifies that something NEW will be revealed for the first time… Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception was officially revealed BEFORE Sunday, December 12th, so if we’re going to be technical here, saying that the Uncharted 3 event was the reveal would be innacurate and misleading…

    It will be unfortunate if that ends up being the case.

  • @20 awesome!
    @21 How sad. They should have waited then until December 12 like they said instead of getting us all hyped hoping for something new instead of for something that has already been revealed. Still though, I am super excited for Uncharted 3.

  • @28: That just says they’re talking about U3, not that that’s the reveal.

  • I think the reveal was Kratos in MK, unfortunately.

  • “all six mutant heroes to be on-screen at one time”

    So does this mean the game will have online co-op mode?

  • @32: That was earlier. Still was a cool reveal.

  • I’m hoping for a super awesome firmware update. They are normally updated at about 10pm central and since nothing has been revealed yet it has to be! And after finishing Sands of Time HD, I’m glad to see Warrior Within dropping this week.

  • @29

    Arne said so in his post (“UNCHARTED 3 hits PS3 11/1/11, Watch the Full VGA trailer Here, Jimmy Fallon on Monday”) right after the VGA ended. In which he says this: “We’re hosting a bunch of journalists tomorrow in Los Angeles to discuss our game and show them a bit more than you’ve been able to see so far. You’ll be reading (and seeing) about what we presented to them over the next few weeks in your favorite online web sites and print magazines around the world.”

  • What? Prototype for download? That was a cool rental. That’ll be cool to get.

  • @36: That doesn’t say it’s the reveal. Understand?

  • Also, for further proof, the PlayStation twitter already confirmed that the reveal was indeed UNCHARTED 3. User @BrushYourTeeth asked @PlayStation what the reveal was and @PlayStation answered them saying that it was indeed UNCHARTED 3.

  • @39: *slide whistle weeeeeeeeeeeooooooo* *thump* That was my heart sinking. I really wanted Sly 4.

  • @40 i know

  • @39 It’s okay bro. We still get UNCHARTED 3. I personally was hoping for the World Premiere of Agent; it would have been perfect since Red Dead Redemption won the VGA Game of the Year 2010.

  • From the Playstation twitter:

    “The game is UNCHARTED 3”

  • Ah, someone beat me to it except mine is being moderated due to a link to twitter.

  • For everyone posting about a post from Arne yesterday. That might be true, but that was yesterday. The save the date advertisement said we’d see a reveal today so I tuned in today. They let the cat out if the bag on Uncharted 3 on thursday or friday. If that was it that’s fine. We just want to know for sure.

  • Ray think you may have forgotten Under Siege

  • :(

  • i was so excited for something awesome. its getting late…im losing hope. sony needs to look up the word “reveal” …they must have been absent that day back in 4th grade. did they really think their fans didnt get wind of uncharted 3 three days ago?

  • Uhh the reveal is killing me, i wanna know what it is other wise i’ll continue to imagine what it could possibly be, i want sly 4 or starhawk, but hearing it’s uncharted 3 is a bit disappointing I hope it isn’t…

  • @5 u forgot Little Big Planet 2, Twisted Metal, Socom 4, Motorstorm Apocalypse, n Infamous 2
