did anyone see the front page?

23 replies 3 views Edited Apr 23, 2009

   I know alot of us want Uncharted 2 to have co-op and/or multiplayer, but on the front page of this website playstation.com it says "An electrifying announcement." And it shows Uncharted and inFAMOUS together. So I'm thinking maybe the big announcement is an Uncharted 2 BETA or demo will come with inFAMOUS.

  

   It makes sense to have one exclusive come with another. Plus inFAMOUS was moved up anyway so it didnt have to directly compete with Prototype which is very similiar to inFAMOUS. And this would be an incentive to buy inFAMOUS over Prototype and I've just inadvertly spent way too much time and energy on this. What do ya think?

What's interesting is when you click on it, it goes to the Uncharted 2 trailer. The interesting part? The place holder boxart for Uncharted 2 has the "Playstation Network" logo on it where as single player only games have the, "Only on Playstation" logo and nothing more.

Yeah, there's also a poster in the PlayStation Home mall advertising this, along with the date 4-27-09.  I'm really kind of confused about these two games being featured together as well.

Yeah, I saw this and I agree with Maverick. The two games seem to have nothing to do with each other. I'm thinking if you get Infamous, it'll come with Uncharted 2 demo

The first Uncharted is the best-selling of Sony’s first-party PS3 games. So adding in the demo for the sequel with a new IP would be a smart move. More people may buy InFamous for the Uncharted demo and Uncharted will start it's buzz growing.

Yea it would be awsome. I planned on buying InFamous anyways so I really hope this will happen. Hopefully it would be on the Infamous Disc instead of some code to download it.

Im thinking it could be a demo found only with Infamous for Uncharted 2. A couple weeks ago i saw an article about naughty Dog being under a bit of a time crucnh to get the finishing polishes on a demo. Now some fourms and sites thought it meant a demo for E3. Now if Sony does include a demo for Uncharted 2 on Infamous it would genenrate more sales for Infamous and also get more people excited for Uncharted 2. Also in addition to this announcement being all over Home and on the front page. There is also a free Tshirt in the Mall that has Infamous on the front and Uncharted 2 on the back.

I don't see the rational for your statement as all of the demos will be downloadable anyway.  I wouldn't buy Infamous just on the off chance that it will have the Uncharted Demo.
